I created this pattern to decorate a beach bag, but it makes a lovely stand alone decorative doily or mat too.

You can read all about the Starfish and how it was designed over at my blog, where you will find a detailed step by step photo tutorial illustrating each round and the technical bits too!

The pattern is written in UK crochet terms.

The Starfish is made in the round and consists of a variety of interesting stitches, including clusters and puff stitches.

I used DROPS Paris cotton to make my Starfish in the following shades:

35 vanilla
14 strong yellow
13 orange
12 red

However any combination of colours will do!

The final Starfish measures 260 mm in diameter.

I hope you choose to make the Starfish and I would love to see your creations if you do.
