The blossom dishcloth measures only about 6.5″ across, however it can be increased or decreased to any width and length as desired. Thus, you can easily make a matching coaster or a placemat.
This variegated yarn has been in my stash for a good long time, but I finally turned it into a useful dishcloth. I think the blossom stitch looks nice in the variegated yarn, but it’s just as lovely in a solid color. Below is a picture of a coaster that I made using this pattern. I believe I started the coaster off with 13 chains and it came out to about 4.5″ across.

Row 2: Ch 4 (counts as first dc and ch-1 sp), *(sc, ch 1) in v-st, (dc, ch 1) in next sc; rep from * across working last (dc, ch1) into turning ch of previous row. Last ch-1 made counts as turning ch and first sc for next row. (10 ch-1 sps) Turn.
Row 3: *V-st in next sc, sc in next dc; rep from * across. Turn.
Rows 4-13: Rep rows 2-3.
Rnd 1: Sc evenly around working 3 sc into each corner and making sure to end with an even number. Join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, (sc, dc) in same st as join, *sk next st, (sc, dc) in next st; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten Off.
Here is the coaster I made with this yarn. I really like how it looks in a solid color. I started with 13 chains and then worked the pattern as above.
