Sun Catcher Dish Cloth

Sun Catcher Dish Cloth
Sun Catcher Dish Cloth These dainty, bright, detailed dish cloths work up quickly and beautifully when using both acrylic or cotton yarns. Acrylic yarns create durable cloths with superior scrub-ability, while cotton cloths can be doubled as face cloths as well, adding an element of simple elegance or sunshiny fun! These cloths are created using size I hooks and medium worsted weight acrylic yarn or cotton yarn with their corresponding size hooks. Note: Joins are worked with slip stitches in top of first stitch of each round. Lets Begin! 1. Have a LOVEly day! Love all you do, and those you have, with all your heart!

Coasters I don't know about you, but coasters seem to disappear around here as much as socks do. I've got a quick and easy "go-to" pattern to crochet up a couple when you need them. I got the pattern from Rachel at Adventures of a DIY Mom and it was really a hotpad pattern. Thank you, Rachel, for sharing it! I've made a couple of hotpad's and loved the way it all came together so quickly, so I thought, why not a coaster, too?

5 Little Monsters: Blossom Stitch Crochet Washcloths I made these washcloths a few weeks ago as a Mother's Day gift. They are a little bit lacier and more open than I normally use for dishcloths or washcloths but it is solid enough to still work well and I wanted to use a pretty feminine stitch. The stitch I used is called the blossom stitch and it is made using a combination of single crochet, double crochet, and chain stitches. I always use 100% cotton yarn any time I am making washcloths or dishcloths. For this particular project I used Peaches and Cream yarn but any worsted weight cotton yarn will work just fine.

DIY Monday - knitting a dishcloth, a beginner's project! Those who know me will you tell you, I love to knit. I knit at home, in the car, at the table after dinner, while talking, watching TV, waiting at the doctor's office, in the back of my big, auditorium classes, or (if I ask the prof. beforehand), right down in the front row. I knit in the park, at the mall, and while we wait for our food at restaurants.

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.

5 Little Monsters: Diagonal Weave Crochet Dishcloths This week I made dishcloths for my SYTYC entry for "In the Kitchen". I was really worried that dishcloths would be a little too boring but they did really well. I didn't win the week but I came in second, one vote behind the first place winner. I knew that crocheted dishcloths have always done well on blog I just wasn't sure if people would vote for them in a competition but I guess they did. That was pretty exciting to see. When I made these dishcloths I played around with several different stitch ideas, some one color, some multicolor.

Felted Button - Colorful Crochet Patterns: Mama's Wash Cloths My sweet mom loves when I make her wash cloths and dish cloths. Someone asked me why crocheted wash cloths are so great. And although I love the possible textures, and the ease of wash and functional use, I think the thing I like about them most is that they are HANDMADE!! (right, Fauna?)
