This should probably go over on the crochet board but I thought some of the ladies here would enjoy this one.

Very pretty. I don't crochet much any more, but my mother did all the time. She said she could still do it by feel after her eyes started to go.


Happy is a choice.

GO RAVENS!!!

We're a needlework board also - don't 'crochet needles' apply? Grin

Anyway neat little pot holders. I can do a basic chain, never was able to learn more intricate patterns

Really cute idea are these pot holders or dish cloths? I make knitted dish cloths and give them away at work, people seem to love them.

Thanks for sharing the site, these are too cute. And they look really easy to work up. Might just have to try one.

Yea Kayla...I'm one that loves knitted dish cloths for sure!

Thanks for sharing. One of the organizations I'm involved includes pot holders in the tote bag...I'm thinking heavier yarn and perhaps an additional round to make the pattern a little bigger....and a fabulous way to attack the yarn stash!!

**Like**

I've been dabbling in crochet while the remodeling is going on... practicing the Crocodile stitch.


Thank you, Paus.

Cute, cute dishcloths!! I have a DGD that is wanting to learn how to crochet. This would be a good easy pattern for her to learn with. Thanks for posting it.

Cute! I haven't crocheted in awhile. I use to make afghans like crazy.

I also love the knitted dish cloths!! I have some yarn, needles and a pattern. Just haven't had time to sit down and concentrate.

I love seeing pretty things I can't make. I even love doilies and swore I'd never have any in my house. My Mother loved them. Soooo, now I have lots of them too.

A Granny square is probably the easiest and quickest to learn stitch/pattern in crochet. They can become like mindless sewing after a bit. You start and next thing you know, you're done.

This is supposed to be a dishcloth. If I were going to make it as a potholder using regular yarn, I'd put a cotton/flannel backing on it. Most regular yarns have poly or nylon in them and they will transmit heat. My first thought when I saw the picture was I could use some of the leftover Granny Squares I have. I still may.

You can also make two of them in the Sugar and Cream and use a finishing slip stitch or row of single crochet around them to keep them together. I've done that with other patterns.

Glad you like my find.

My sister (not Sue) can crochet anything. She has made me doilies and scrubbies, doll clothes for my grandaughters babies. I can crochet, but not the granny square. I never figure out the right place to stop. I've made lots of ripple afghans that I don't mind claiming I made.LOL But Never Ever a Granny square. Frown

Those are neat. Been so long since I've crocheted anything, don't think I could make anything... Chris

I have been practicing some new crochet stitches as I'm still in remodeling-mode.

Here's the Crocodile stitch:

Then, I ripped it all out and tried the V-stitch... which is a keeper!

Note: The V-stitch was shown a different way... two stitches in one stitch. I 'looped' my stitch over the entire 'bridge' for lack of a better word. Smile


Seems I have company.

paus...I agree with using sugar and cream yarns for kitchen items like this. I use the 100% cotton yarns of that weight all the time for dishcloths and other items like mug rugs, and little square thingies for underneath your warm bowls/ dishes on the table. ( not right out of the over hot)
Nice little gifts they make for teachers neighbors special things for holidays and such. Everyone love handmade things!!!!

Haven't crocheted in years - never got past the double crochet and the one project took me FOREVER - I never continued after that was finished.

I buy the handmade dishcloths, etc. when I come across them - I love them.
