Crochet Star Dishcloth

This crochet star dishcloth pattern was one of my first patterns that were published. I’ve rewritten and redesigned it for a neater appearance of the star. I also tightened up the holes, to make it more suitable for washing and scrubbing those dishes.

In cotton, this is the perfect size for a dishcloth, a doily, or a plant mat. It looks great in a worsted weight yarn, but you could also substitute a fine thread and smaller hook to make a small star doily for your candles and such.

I added picot stitches in the last round to bring out the points of the star. You can omit these if you like and just work the entire round with single crochets.
