Crochet Post Dishcloths #327 -330 and # 331 - 334 and more!
I really love finishing up projects! The afghan below is a free sampler pattern from Red Heart Yarns that was published on Maggie Weldon's site www..bestfreecrochet.com
LOVED making it but then I am a sucker for sampler patterns :-) I just wish it were bigger. It's a great size for a THROW but I personally like a bigger afghan.
Anyway - I loved using colors from my stash and think it turned out pretty! I just may make another one in a completely different palette just for fun... [SOMEDAY]
and a hat! Another from Maggie Weldon's www.bestfreecrochet.com Just the right size for a little one! (and NOW I can give it to my grandson!)
I have actually been doing a lot of crocheting lately - and have loved finishing up projects and using up my stash as I go... At this writing, I still have ONE more dishcloth I am stuck on.... but have been spending time crocheting cowls and hats for winter gifts! More next week!
Dishcloths for this week are below:
#327 Whirligig Dishcloth Pictured below on the upper left - This pretty cloth is done in Christmas colors.... quick to work up with easy stitches and clear instruction, this is a great beginner piece. I enjoyed making it and could see making them in different color combinations for different holidays!
#328 Camo Print Dishcloth - pictured on the lower right. Not quite camo - but a variegated similar colors, this is a pretty circular cloth. I would be tempted to try it in a more floral color. The pattern is lacy and would look striking in a solid.
#329 Simple Cro-Hook Dishcloth Pictured above on the lower left. I had fun doing this one but it took me WAY too long :-) New technique with the hook on both ends... fun to LEARN! Obviously I got messed up somewhere along the way because the pattern switched up in the middle.... still works fine as a dishcloth and not worth tearing out and starting over. I did discover that this is probably not a hook / technique that will work well for me!
#330 Mini Pineapples Dishcloth If you look closely at the yellow variegated cloth, you can see little pineapples in the pattern. I do enjoy trying new patterns and would definitely encourage new crocheters to test out these pattens! This particular pattern would make super afghan squares!
The next 4 dishcloths are pictured below:
# 331 Sock Dishcloth.. I bet you can pick this one out of the photo below! Easy to make and cute to look at.. but I have to ask WHY? Yes, it is dishcloth or washcloth... a strange shape but functional.... but seriously I don't know who I would give it to! I did learn how to make a flat sock shape, though, in case I ever need to :-)
#332 Flower Scrubbie Dishcloth pictured below on the lower right. I have found making this type interesting. This particular one was done by actually crocheting onto the scrubbie.... a serious PAIN. Once that part was done, the pattern was pretty simple. I like the concept of cloth and scrubbie but will have to test-drive it to see how it goes..... (certainly I won't have the ease of tossing it in the dryer after I wash it!)
#333 Tea Pot Dishcloth Above on the upper left.... actually, I think it is a creamer!
#334 Sugar Bowl Dishcloth
These two are whimsical and fun and made me smile. I enjoyed making these and think they would be super for tea or coffee drinkers. I know I would smile when I used them to clean my kitchen!
