    HOW CAN I GET YOUR PATTERN IN LARGER PRINT, AS I HAVE SIGHT PROBLELMS AND WOULD LOVE TO MAKE SOME OF YOUR DISH CLOTHS

    Hi Peggy,

    You can press the CONTROL BUTTON and the + SYMBOL on your keyboard to make it bigger.

    (Press Control and – Symbol or Control and 0 (Zero) to put it back to normal size when you’re done)

    With it being an actual webpage we have it as big as it will go at the moment.

    Hi Peggy, I think you can print these out bigger. Simply select the PDF and Print preview. Then select all of the pattern and a larger percent and tell it to print the selection.

    This patteren is so easy for me to read it is the first star pattern i am able to keep my mind focused on.
    Also, i did this w/o the edging and with a size “I” hook. turned out nicely. it took a moment to figure out the clusters, but the rest is simple. and freda, you may want to look online in specality shops or look for metalliac yarn with a cotton base.

    Hi..

    I know this is a dishcloth, but could it be continued and made into a small afghan/blanket for a child??

    Thanks.. 🙂

    it should do. you may have to adjust the increases as it gets larger as crochet stitches are not always exponential. i am going to try.

    Love this pattern. Made one for my Aunt Norma’s 80th birthday. Was a big hit!

    Recently discovered your wonderful patterns & just wanted to thank you for all the time & effort you took in making them available to us. My old eyes can no longer handle the doilies I loved making, but dishcloths are very “doable”. Thanks SO much for providing such a huge variety of lovely projects! 🙂
