I have not made this yet but the instructions look straightforward. The last round with the points seems easy to do since I have worked edgings like this before. I am going to make one since I always need dishcloths and I find the home made ones last longer.

the reason you aren't getting any pictures of the sunshine dish cloth is because no one can figure out how to make the "points" on the round dish cloth. I sure need better instructions, maybe everyone else does too.

Hi! The points are made in the 9th round. You're going to chain 1 then single crochet in that same slip stitch from the previous round. Then chain 7 and single crochet in the second chain from the hook (working down the chain 7). Then in the following stitch, you're going to do a half-double crochet, then 1 double crochet in the chain after that, and one triple crochet in the chain after that, then one double treble crochet in the next chain (here's a description on how to do that: Then you're going to yarn over your hook 4x and insert your hook into the next stitch and draw up a loop. Then yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook 5 x. Skip the next 5 half double crochets and work 1 single crochet into the next half double crochet, then repeat the whole thing from the Chain 7. I hope that helps! If you need more information, you can always contact the company, Lily Sugar'n Cream, for a diagram or maybe a video. Thanks!

The pointy parts are worked sideways - you start with the point (single crochet) and each following stitch is longer ( hdc, dc, tr, etc.) I can understand your confusion but give it a try - step by step and you should get it. Hope that helps. :)

can't figure this one out--can't figure how to do the points on the circle, is there a video or better instructions ?
