Combining Stitches

I made this dishcloth by combining the moss stitch and star stitch. I think it's very
pretty. I call it Pretty Flowers in the Moss. 

I used the lighter weight cotton from Knitca.com and a 4.50 mm hook. 

I have a post here about making the Star Stitch.

The Moss Stitch is very easy. It is simply 1hdc, 1 slipstitch and you repeat that to
the end of the row. On the next row you make 1 hdc in each slip stitch and 1
slip stitch in each hdc of the previous row. Here is a video showing how to 
do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tR2GfDB80tE 

I enjoy experimenting with different stitches for dishcloths. This combination would 
also look very nice if used for an afghan.
