Dish Cloth


After talking to someone about making dish clothes it got me in the mood to make one.
I found some cotton yarn in my stash and a pattern from “Crochet with Heart” magazine. This was my favorite Crocheting magazine which I just happen to have every issue ever printed (It was only in print for five years).

The dish cloth I chose was made with dc (Double Crochet), front and back post dc (Front and Back Post Double Crochet), sc (Single Crochet )and ch stitches ( Chain Stitch). Dish clothes are nice because they are small projects that can teach you a variety of stitches, how to put an edging on and are great to have on hand for a last minute gifts. I personally love to have them in my kitchen.

But I did it because it was a nice break from the my larger project that I am working on.



About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    Just found dishcloths this year and I love them. I will be making lots for Christmas>:)

  4. LeeAnne that is great. I did the same thing one year for Christmas. I believe your friends and family always loves homemade gifts. The year I gived them as gifts, I rolled the dishcloth into a rose and place them on sticks. Then I wrapped tissue paper around them. Then I gived everyone a rose that year.
