I have been seeing this stitch for a while now and decided while I was off for the New Year's holiday I would try it as a washcloth/dishcloth. The pattern is from Knit Picks. I ended up having to watch a YouTube video to get it right-and that took several attempts. There is also a "wrong" side to this pattern which I am not a fan of.
I was skipping a stitch, therefore losing a "star" every row.
I then thought I had it...but instead of decreasing I must have started increasing stitches. It started as 5 inches for the first 4 rows...row 5- 5.5 inches...row 6- 6 inches...I don't see my doing this one again anytime soon.
Started and Finished: January 2, 2015
Pattern: Fruity Loops Crochet Dishcloth
Yarn: Lily Sugar n'Cream Cotton, scraps
