Knitted flip flop cloth pattern

Okay I ventured out and learned something new! So, I love those dishcloths that you can see a pattern on, but it's not in a different color yarn or anything, just stitches. I made two dishcloths for my dear friend Jeannette with sharks on them! She loves sharks and so I KNEW I had to make them for her! While I was working on them, a lady I worked with, Chelise commented on how much she liked the color of the yarn. And Chelise loves flip flops, so I thought, hmmmm maybe I'll make her a flip flop cloth. I searched patterns and did not find even ONE! Therefore, I had to make my own pattern. It was a little bit of trial and error, and I'm not completely in love with the way it turned out, but it did turn out okay! I will for sure be trying other patterns, the charting is a little tricky to picture how it will turn out once knitted up.
