  2. Hi Judy! Thank you SO much 🙂 I’m very happy the photo tutorial was helpful. I hope you have a lovely weekend! Rhondda

  3. Rhondda, thank you so much for your clear instructions and photos. A while ago, I tried to make a dishcloth with this stitch, but I just couldn’t follow those written instructions. I didn’t understand where to put the hook into the first star I had made, so the rest of the row simply wouldn’t work. Now not only can I see, but I can do!! 🙂 Your instructions are always so easy to follow. Just one more reason why I love your website!

    Thank you!

  4. Hi Caprice, Thank you!! I’m happy you like the ones we have chosen so far and I hope we can continue to find some great new ones for next year too!! Rhondda

  5. Love all the stitches &patterns listed here. This stitch is another beauty!!! Keepem coming. Thank you Caprice

  6. Thank you for this interesting stitch pattern. I will start with a dishcloth and see how it looks. I am thinking of making a throw made of blocks in different colours. I am not overly keen on samplers so I like to keep it simple. 🙂
