Christmas Star dishcloths

I've posted about this pattern before, but it's been five years and I think more readers would like to know about it.  I saw these adorable dishcloths over at Miss Abigail's Hope Chest and just had to share.  Here is the link to the free pattern, which downloads as a pdf and is easy and fun to crochet:  Christmas Star Dishcloth.

 The original pattern calls for gold yarn on the edging part, but Kathleen, at Miss Abigail's, used red, which to my mind looks even nicer.  I have done these with green edging also.  These look to me as if they would make a nice doily-type item for Christmas decorating, not just a dishcloth.  And in fact, everyone that I've gifted with one of these has said just that -- they see them as doilies and plan to use them as such.

If you need an easy handmade gift or a little something to tuck into a gift basket, and you crochet, here is your answer.  Have fun!


  1. Cute doilies! I buy doilies at Goodwill, Estate Sales, Garage Sales, anywhere I can find them. I decorate with them year around. My most prized ones are the ones my grandma crocheted many years ago. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You are welcome, Vicki! And thanks for the sweet comments. I think they are very cute and they seem to be liked and enjoyed by everyone.

  2. I love them as doilies too. Might just have to make a few

  3. These are so quick and easy to make, Lucie! I think one could be completed in under an hour. I'm making a few more for my stash.
