Hexagram Star Dishcloth Pattern

Posted on January 3, 2017

I have a new crocheted dishcloth pattern to share. I am calling it the Hexagram Star Dishcloth. Quoting Wikipedia, “A hexagram (Greek) is a six-pointed geometric star figure” which I thought was a perfect name to describe my new 6 point crocheted dishcloth.

I posted several pictures of the hexagram dishcloth below using different color schemes and cotton yarn scraps. As you can see, you can mix and match different colors to create many various looks for this crocheted dishcloth pattern.

All pattern directions in USA crochet terms.
