Crochet a Dishcloth Pattern

crochet dishcloth

Well, I just love dishcloths.  It is a necessity in the kitchen.  Although it is a necessity, you can add a little color to your kitchen crocheting your own dishcloth.  The key is to use 100% cotton yarn, or a cotton blend.  I decided to use Lion Brand Yarn’s  Cotton Bamboo which is a cotton blend.  The reason I chose this yarn is the variety of spring colors that are available: magnolia, persimmon, hibiscus, hyacinth and gardenia; to name a few.  Below is an easy dishcloth pattern.

How to Crochet a Beanie?


There’s something unique in regards to a knitted beanie vs. a crochet beanie.  A knitted beanie has a textured look.  A crochet beanie usually has tiny holes.  I figured a way to crochet a beanie and get a similar look to a knitted beanie without the tiny holes, using the single crochet stitch.  The secret is a smaller needle.  You start out with the required needle, and then you proceed to a smaller needle one size smaller.  You might have to use a needle two sizes smaller based on the yarn.  I enjoyed crocheting this fitted beanie.  I also added a ribbed texture.  The yarn is Lion Brand’s Baby Alpaca.  It’s soft and also warm.  This yarn is part of their luxury line.  Crochet Ribbed Beanie pattern.
