Clouds and Rainbows

I saw a pattern from Knit Picks of a dishcloth with a cloud and rain drops that was crocheted.  Sadly as many times as I've tried I can just not get the hang of crochet but I figured why can't I just knit that.

So that is exactly what I did.  I love the little cloud and thought it was adorable but of course when I do it instead of raindrops I needed a rainbow. If you like the Dishcloth pattern and can't crochet.  I've added a pattern of my own.  I hope you enjoy.
