I've been working on making crocheted cotton dishcloths to give away as part of my Christmas gift baskets this year.  This year I'm going to add in some homemade canned goods to make the baskets kitchen themed.  Here are the first 5 sets I've made. They are quite simple to put together, and look so pretty when they're all done.  The pattern is Starfish Dishcloths available for free from Coats.

Yay!  They're so pretty dear!  Also, I think I've actually been messing up the pattern slightly.  Yours look exactly like the pattern picture, but I've been having trouble ending them, without a weird little curve-bump thingy.  I made the first 2 sets following the pattern, and then did the rest from memory.  I think my memory became faulty along the way somewhere....  Oh well, they'll still scrub pots just fine!

I don't even see a weird little curve-bump thingy, but it probably is created by your last join.

Here's a video tutorial for an invisible join, that get rid of that last slst bump, Invisible Join Crochet Tutorial by GleefulThings.

And the only thing I did different it appears is that I did the reverse sc aka crab stitch for last round, which one really doesn't have to do.  Here's a video tutorial that also shows a join, Crab Stitch Reverse Single Crochet Edging Border by Crochet Geek ( you can fast forward a bit to see joining...@3:12).

Hope that helps! Grin  And your starfish are ever bit as lovely!!!! Kiss
