The Star stitch makes a beautiful and textured wash/dishcloth, perfect for every day use. At the beginning this stitch may seem a little bit difficult, but actually is very easy, just be patient and you’ll see how beautiful it is and I’m sure you will enjoy this project.
For my textured wash/dishcloth I’ve used 50 g organic cotton and a 4 mm hook.

Row 1: ch 1, hdc starting with the 2nd chain of the hook until the end of the row.
Row 2: ch 3, skip 1 ch and make 2 loops in next 2 chains, make 3 loops in next 3 stitches, yarn over and draw the yarn through all the 6 loops on the hook, ch 1; * make a loop through the eye formed by the ch, a loop through the back of the last loop of the previous star and 3 loops in the next 3 stitches, yarn over and draw the yarn through all the 6 loops on the hook, ch 1*; repeat *-*, and in the last stitch you made the last loop at the star make a hdc.
Row 3: ch 1, hdc until the end of the row.
Repeat the pattern from row 2 until you reach the desire dimension.
After you finish the star stitch crochet a sc around the cloth.
