quick crochet patterns
I 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
1 Skein dk weight cotton yarn
What you need to know:
Half 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.
I 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
‣ yarn needle
‣ plastic eyes ( just used yarn for my eyes)
‣ little piece of red felt
