quick crochet patterns

crochet dishclothI had heard that crocheting dishcloths are a good way to practice for a newbie crocheter.   This crochet dishcloth pattern was easy to work and only took a couple of hours.

What you need:

G (4.0mm) Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle
1 Skein dk weight cotton yarn

What you need to know:

Half Double Crochet
Double Crochet


I used a 5 or an H hook on accident but it worked out nicely.   I used Peaches & Cream Yarn in Floral Bouquet that I picked up at Walmart.  I had bought it for another project but what they hey I had wanted to try to crochet a washcloth and knew I needed 100% cotton so I went ahead and used what I had on hand.  Below is the picture of the one I made.  The pattern gave directions on changing colors so I thought it would be fun to to buy two complimentary colors and crochet them up opposite so you have a nice set.  I will be sure to post when I do.

baymax free crochet patternI came across this crochet pattern for Baymax from the movie Big Hero 6.  My son loves that movie so I thought it would be a quick and easy project.  It didn’t take long at all to crochet Baymax.  I was informed from my son though that Baymax doesn’t have a heart on his chest.  OPPS!

This cute little guy is just about 3 inches tall.  I put a loop on the top of mine so my son could hang it in his truck.  Big kids love Baymax too.

Fun fact!  I didn’t have stuffing for Baymax so I make a small cut in one of their stuffed animals and told them it was a donor.  LOL  They said, “Mom you’re not right.”  Ahh but that’s why they love me.

What you need:

‣ Hook: 3 mm
‣ Yarn: White and a little piece of black yarn
‣ scissors
‣ fiberfill
‣ yarn needle
‣ plastic eyes ( just used yarn for my eyes)
‣ little piece of red felt
