Okay - this week's dishcloths :-) I had hoped to have the Easter ones finished.... but, being the lazy crocheter.... there is a little finishing up stitching to do.... and somehow they are still in my sewing basket.. along with a pair of booties that will finish up a little layette that will have to wait for next week!
#28 in the crocheted dishcloth series is called Lavender Lane :-) Pictured on the bottom left, it is a little bit lacy and very pretty. It uses single, double and treble crochet stitches to get the pattern.
Bottom center is #29 - Lacy Violets. Violets are the February flower and these are really pretty. Of course, they are made separately and stitched on.... but it was easy to do! Big effect for a little extra effort :-)
#30 Bottom right is the Cross Stitch Dishcloth. Using double crochet stitches crocheted over each other, it creates a little X in the pattern. Very nice effect and works up quickly!
Top Left is #32 Evergreens in the Round - only I used royal blue :-) I liked the technique on this one. It was quick, easy and a surprise. The edging is doubled - both a blue edge AND a white one. I don't really care for for the way it turned out - I would probably just do the white if I did the pattern again.
#33 - top center - was my favorite of this batch! The Carnation - January flower was really unusual to do. Basically it is crocheted as a circle with the center ruffles worked at the end. I LOVE items that are really simple and look impressive :-)
And then #34 the Snowflake... It is a basic granny stitch in a hexagon shape with a snowflake appliqued in the center. The lazy crocheter will probably not do this one again :-) BUT it did turn out well. The instructions were a little tricky but once I got the hang of it - and matched against the illustration provided, it came along.
I didn't skip # 31! The Shamrock was first shown on 3/16 - in time for St Patrick's Day :-)
Not too much, but that's it for this week. The other projects I am working on are still growing!
Thanks for reading :-)
