I found this Crochet Star Dishcloth pattern on Pinterest and really liked the texture it has. It also reminded me of a starfish – probably because I love the beach so much. 😉 It made me think of the starfish we saw while we were visiting Bar Harbor, Maine a few years ago. It was low tide and this little guy was hanging out in just a few inches of water waiting for the tide to roll back in. I shared about our trip to New England in the Fall of 2016 here – it is high on my list of favorite vacations!

I chose to make my Star Dishcloths in beachy colors since I was thinking of starfish 😉 , but of course you can make them any color. I used I Love This Cotton yarn in White, Aqua, and Taupe with an H/5mm hook to stitch up my dishcloths. They work up quickly and are really fun to make!
Since they are made with cotton yarn, they can also be used as spa cloths. I think they would make a whimsical and fun hostess gift for a friend who lives near the ocean, maybe with some cute seashell soaps. Or make them in Christmas colors and get a head start on your gift making. What color will you make yours?
