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 don’t know if I have mentioned it before but I have ADD and I had it before it was cool cause I’m old and well back then they didn’t have a name for it until I was well into high school. So what’s my point? I think the internet and social media can really get me going in lots of directions. Like if I didn’t have all this maybe I’d have some crochet pattern in a book but now at the click of a mouse all types of free crochet patterns and video tutorials. And I want to do them all!!!
So… Today I’m on Facebook and I see a contest thing to win a set of crochet hooks. Well you have to go to YouTube to enter. Did that and then somehow ran across a video tutorial for Entrelac Crochet. Needless to say I grabbed some yarn and a hook and off I went. It’s easy and pretty fun to work. Below is what I did today. 🙂 Ahh another project. I need to know when to say no!
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
