Waffle Crochet Blanket

Waffle Crochet Blanket
You may remember in the Wash Your Washcloths post a dish cloth featured and I said I would show you the stitch.... Here 'tis. It's my all time go to for blankets. I know the granny is an old time favourite and looks really retro at the moment and it is OK for a climate like QLD, but this waffle type construction traps warm air and provides the cosiest rug of really robust construction. Ideal for the Tasmanian conditions. The best thing is there are very few rules and I find it uses up scrap wool effectively. If you want to make a dish cloth, use pure cotton and those lovely scrubby ridges give just the grunt you need on some of the tough jobs. For rugs, use whatever you want to use up. These are great for watching TV or emergency back up in the car. Whether you make a single or a king size, it's up to you and how many chain stitches you do. Even my edge was done with scrap. The crochet terms I use are Australian/English Make a chain..... So go ahead and make a tr in the 4th stitch there.

Linen Stitch Dishcloth By Dedri Uys I know this stitch as the Linen Stitch, but have also seen it called the Moss Stitch (although the Moss stitch as I know it is slightly different). You might know it by a different name, and if you do, please let me know. It is one of the simplest stitch patterns to master and yields a pretty, woven, dense fabric. The reason it is so simple is that you don’t even have to know how to work into the loops of the single crochet stitches, because you will be working into the ch-1 spaces between single crochet stitches instead.

Moroccan Tile Afghan The Moroccan Tile Afghan is warm, cozy, a fast V stitch pattern to crochet, and full of color! It’s the latest free crochet blanket pattern on Moogly – and I’ve included guidelines for 6 different sizes! The stitch pattern I used in the Moroccan Market Tote lodged itself in my brain. It was so much fun to make, I had to use it one more time – and figure out how to make it work in rows rather than rounds.

Creating Laura: Washcloth Knitting Pattern I know that hand-knitting my own washcloths might make me old school, but I have a confession to make: loofas gross me out. Have you ever thought about how many germs are probably growing inside those puffy things? They never fully dry.

Crazy Ripple Blanket This free-style afghan is a great way to use up little bits of leftover yarn while making a stunning conversation piece. The diamond inserts transition the ripple pattern from a smaller ripple to a larger one and then back to a smaller one again. The diamond inserts can also be stacked to create a patchwork look. The example is made in light worsted weight mercerized cotton.

Slip Stitch Dishtowels These dishtowels look really complicated to make, don’t they? I love that because, just like you want hard things to look easy, it’s a great coup to make easy things look difficult! These three stitch patterns all come from Barbara Walker’s classic Treasury of Knitting Patterns and are created by the simple technique of hiding yarns behind slipped stitches. There’s no tricky stranding or two-hand knitting or even issues of tension; there’s just the easy matter of slipping stitches and watching as amazing patterns emerge! Slip stitch color patterns are terrific for scarves (check out Laura’s gorgeous Reversible Stripes Scarf), sweaters, blankets and even dishtowels. For these, I looked for patterns that would evoke traditional kitchen textiles: no-nonsense designs with the geometry of vintage linens.
