Starfish Cloth

Who knows why we knit what we knit. Not me. This is Dione Reed’s Starfish Cloth, a free pattern on her Sew-Funky website and on Ravelry. It’s one of those things you just want to try to knit for the fun of it. You end up with a fairly serviceable dishcloth or washcloth, but that’s really not the point. I used oddments of Lion Brand Cotton-Ease.  Left over from, of course, other dishcloths I’ve knitted.

I can see it knit large with a newborn plunked down in the middle for a photo op or a nice comfy nap. In a tighter gauge and with more forgiving yarn, I believe the gappy divides between the colors would be tamed. A quick knit, with lots of bang for the buck.

  1. Love your starfish cloth…yes it does look like a fun knit! I like the unusual shaped cloths to use like a doily. I have my orchid sitting on top of a flower cloth that I made ages ago. Work great and sure saves the furniture from water spots!
