starfish cloth

This is going to become one of my FAVOURITE CLOTHS of all time, it looks so CUTE and is so EASY to make...

Materials: 1 ball worsted weight cotton yarn, size 4mm needles. I used Anchor Magicline for this cloth, which gave it a lovely effect - it's a self-striping yarn.

Instructions:
Cast on 15 stitches.
This cloth is made up of 6 wedges, all exactly the same. Then the edge is sewn together, the threads are sewn in and the cloth is complete. :)

Every wedge:

Row 1 and all odd rows: K across to last 3 stitches, P3.
Row 2: K3, YO, K to last st, turn.
Row 4: K3, YO, K to last 2 sts, turn.
Row 6: K3, YO, K to last 3 sts, turn.
Row 8: K3, YO, K to last 4 sts, turn.
Row 10: K3, YO, K to last 5 sts, turn.
Row 12: K3, YO, K to last 6 sts, turn.
Row 14: K3, YO, K to last 7 sts, turn.
Row 16: K3, YO, K to last 8 sts, turn.
Row 18: K3, YO, K to last 9 sts, turn.
Row 20: K3, YO, K to last 10 sts, turn.
Row 22: K3, YO, K to last 11 sts, turn.
Row 24: K3, YO, K to last 12 sts, turn.
Row 26: Cast off 12 sts, K to end of row.

Now, look at how EASY that wedge is! You won't even have to print the pattern out!!! :)

I love that word 'easy', it's tempting me to have a go! It's such a cute dishcloth.

These are so easy I'm gonna try all of these this weekend!!! You are really talented! Hope you're voice comes back soon!

I think I figured it out. I'm going to try your starfish in Country Print (Sugar 'n Cream). I think it will be stunning! Thanks for another great pattern.

Chayah said...

This is a lovely pattern. I would like to make it but I don't understand how to get past the first wedge--did you pick up stitches, or make the wedges and connect them? I know I am missing something, help would be very appreciated, warmly, Chayah

Judith said...

Hiya! Didn't use Country Print for this but used a pink variegated by Honeysuckle and it's LUVERLY! Check it out on my blog: www.knittingdaft.blogspot.com. Thanks for the pattern! I'm going to keep my eye on your site! Very talented, you are!

Hi Chayah

You basically carry on knitting the rows again. Don't cast off at the end of the wedge and you should have the same number of stitches you cast on with. :)

Mary said...

I love this pattern (and the rest of your cloth patterns). Thanks for your wonderful designs. I have posted a picture of my finished Starfish and Windmill cloths on my blog if you are interested.

I finally managed to find some of the anchor magicline for sale on EBay and I have done the Windmill and the Starfish and absolutely loved the way they turned out. I have posted both of them as completed projects on my ravelry page; my ravelry name is Noreen. I cannot wait to get started working on your other patterns as they are just as gorgeous and your new baby star one is another WINNER.

Thanks so much for being so creative.

Hi!
I just LOVE the starfish cloth (and all the beautiful patterns you share)!! I´m doing the second one! I´d like to say "Thank you" and ask your permission, if possible, to translate the Starfish pattern to Portuguese in my blog. Many people want to knit it but can´t understand a word in English. It´s just for personal use, not commercial, and I always give all the credits to the artist.
Thanks a lot!
My e-mail: virgilios@uol.com.br

Dione:
Thank you very much for your generosity in allowing me to translate your pattern on my blog. Now Starfish cloth will be beautifully adorning much more Brazilian homes!!

Shay said...

Kayoot! I love this, I have some leftover cotton yarn in various colors and this is the perfect project.

Love this pattern, Many thanks. Just finishing it in Peaches & Cream Earthtone.

Question: Have cast off the 12 stitches on row 27 of the last wedge. Do I continue casting off OR finish the row, turn and cast off. TIA

Cora said...

I found the cloth through Rachel of Rachel's Knitting room. She did hers into a felted coaster which looks awesome. I plan to knit up a few of these.
