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.
Here you can find your favorite color: http://bit.ly/2Lenuzi so you can crochet this washcloth in any color you like.
If you prefer an acrylic yarn I recommend this antibacterial acrylic, here you can find the yarn in your favorite color: http://bit.ly/3gX8Rzo

Make an odd number of chains.
The chart for the stitch:
This is the video tutorial for the stitch:
The written instructions:
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.
Watch the video tutorial to see how to make the star stitch.
For my wash/dishcloth I’ve started with 59 ch and I’ve crocheted the Star stitch for 27 rows. Don’t forget to make the round of sc at the end.
My wash/dishcloth has 27 cm length and 21 cm width.
