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!

Moroccan Motif Cushion Moroccan Hexagon Motif – Free Crochet Pattern by Make My Day Creative – use this to make a cushion or blanket or scarf Do you find Arabic geometry as interesting as I do? It fascinates me how a minor change in a repeat pattern can give a whole different look and feel to the resulting effect. The repeats of Moroccan style tiles have an affinity with crochet motifs and I’ve been wondering if I could recreate the effect in crochet for a while. Moroccan Motif Inspiration So here is my crochet pattern based on it. Of course you can use the motifs for anything you like – scarves, blankets etc. Materials: 4.5mm crochet hook Contrasting dk yarn in two colours. 1 ball each in white and blue makes approximately 10 motifs with left over white for the border – but you may want more for the border depending on how many rounds you add. Special Stitch: Front Post Treble Crochet – fptr A post stitch worked in front of the work so it is only visible on the right side. Pattern: With blue yarn: Finishing:

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. And for a yarn that would match these hard-working stitch patterns I chose Louet’s Euroflax 100% linen. Either way, happy slip stitching! Materials You will also need… Gauge Size Notes Patterns

Crochet in the back loop through out to create the ridge. Neon Crochet Pot Scrubbers by Allison Murray I don’t like sponges being used in clean up situations… I’ve just heard way too much about germs that live up in them. But I do like scrubbies. We had a whole pile of the thing that were given as a gift. It was easy to see that they were little crocheted circles of maroon and hunter green, but I couldnt’ figure out what the material was for the life of me. So one day I’m in the craft store when I see one older lady speaking to another older lady who is putting spool after spool of tulle into her cart. Me being me, I have to go over and talk to this chick and get the skinny and I’m informed that you use the tulle like you would yarn and crochet rounds to make pot scrubbers. Why neons? For this project you will need: First you’ll need to ball up your tulle just like you would yarn. You don’t have to do this step, but while you wind it up you kind of condense it which makes it considerablly easier to crochet with. Chain 6 times. Chain 4 and then double crochet into the circle.

Snowflower Ornaments - Knitting Crochet Sewing Crafts Patterns and Ideas! Last weekend, with the feeling of having eaten way too much pumpkin pie still in my belly, I got busy decorating my Christmas tree. Actually, I would have done it even sooner if it had been at all seemly. The fact is I love Christmas trees, Christmas lights and Christmas ornaments more than any other part of any other holiday. I love it all so much that I grow my Christmas tree inside my apartment all year long. I have an old potted Norfolk Pine that, at about ten feet tall and almost as wide, takes up way more than its fair share of New York City real estate, but when this time of year rolls around, it's totally worth the loss of square footage! Like my tree, my ornament collection keeps growing every year! Rich in texture and elegant in spirit, these pretty little ornaments look wonderful on my Norfolk Pine and also on this spare winter branch. Because ornaments are forever, I made these with Blue Sky's very special new yarn, Metalico. The Materials The Pattern Gauge Finished Size Begin
