Star Dish Cloth

It might be a bit early and some might think I'm crazy but I am wayyy to excited for Halloween and Christmas this year. 
I have started knitting up my Christmas dish cloths and towels and when I made the start dish cloth I thought it was more Christmasy. (I know its not a word but I'm going to use it because that's how I roll)
I wanted to share the pattern with everyone so you can give it a try. 

I am going to also attach some video's for those who may not know what the stitch is they are calling for. They did not turn out great but you will get the point. (I had my camera tied around my neck, not ideal but it worked hahaha)

This video above shows you how to complete rows 1-5. Hope it helps.

Picture quality is not that good because it was taken with my phone... remember my camera is gummed up with electrical tape. Errr

  3. This is great! Thanks for the videos!

    OK can you make a "Knitting for beginners" video tutorial?? Like how to cast on stitches for example. I have knit dishcloths before, but I can't remember for the life of me how to get it started! (Probably because mom would always start them for me and I would do the rest.)

    I would really appreciate that! :)
