I made this starfish dishcloth while on vacation. I love it once I got it figured out. After many attempts and always having trouble at the same spot I found a slight error in round 7 line 6. The * is in the wrong spot and it makes a big difference. I am newer at crochet so did not catch this the first few attempts. I also made it a little smaller by not adding the last row or two rows. I like a smaller dish cloths than some tho. I learned something and that is I will read the posts to see if there is an error before I start something. Learning experience and I do like it and recommend anyone trying this pattern. Andrea

I enjoyed making this dishcloth, but have to admit at first it drove me crazy. I finally discovered the slight error in the round 6 with the placing of the *. Next time I will read the comments and see if there is a mistake before I learn it the hard way. Thanks, Andrea

It would be very helpful FavCrafts if your directions were limited to 1 page. Give us the option on how to print. I am trying to save paper and ink. Also A PDF to download is FAB!

I LOVE this pattern and enjoyed making it. There is only one slight mistake. In row 6 the astrick should be before "1 sc in each of next 9 sts...." Where it is now it has you starting in the middle of a starfish arm without completing the first side. That just doesn't work :O) This was an easy pattern though. A beginner should be able to work this.

What is the number of chain stitches in the beginning for the starfush?

 

Jun 22, 2012

I think the number of stiches to begin should be listed. I love the butterfly dishcloth & have made several. Thank you.

Living in Myrtle Beach the star fish!! I've made a few and gave them to inland friends.They come out cute. Didn't like the butterfly body-loved the wings
