and then....more hats!
|These worked up quickly for a family one of my groups was sponsoring for Christmas|
|And two very silly cupcake hats for the grandgirls!|
Dishcloths for this week:
#159 - Christmas Tree Crochet Dishcloth - pictured below on the bottom left. This cloth uses a typical granny square type arrangement of stitches so is fairly easy to do. It is made in two pieces that had to be sewn together. I chose to do the edging using two strands of metallic crochet thread just to give it a little sparkle!
#160 - Simplicity Crochet Dishcloth - Below on the bottom right. Done in alternating rows of double, half-double and single crochet, this cloth has a nice texture to it. It's a pretty cloth and easy to do - definitely will do this one again!
#162 - Summer Splash Crochet Dishcloth - pictured above on the upper right. This one is worked like a granny square too - only in an oblong shape. It's unusual and works up quickly... Funny - I was just looking at it and wondering why mine was not as angular as the picture on the instructions... and I noticed that the last row of instructions is missing (according to the photo). It should have a final row of double crochet around the outside. Still pretty though!
The next set of four dishcloths is pictured below:
#163 - Fast & Easy Blue Crochet Dishcloth - Guess which one it is! Just kidding - I used the right color this time :-) The bottom left! This one is done in alternating rows of Triple crochet and half-double crochet... works up easily and has clear instructions!
#164 - Juanita Rose Crochet Dishcloth - below on the bottom right. This is a smaller size cloth (which I prefer) done in post crochet. The post stitches give it a bit of texture that will make it super for cleaning!
#165 - Summer Rose Crochet Dishcloth - pictured above on the upper right. Absolutely beautiful! Some of these are so pretty that it is hard to imagine cleaning with them - but I kind of think they will help bring a smile to cleaning! Another thing to remember though is that many of these patterns will also work well in afghans or other items.
#166 - Strawberry Fields Crochet Dishcloth - on the upper right. I struggled a little bit with the instructions for this one - but it worked up quickly once I got it. It's an unusual combination of colors - not exactly to my taste - but a neat concept. Glad I tried it!
