I find more and more that when I get stressed I pick up something I'm working on, start crocheting and relax... now, I'm not the world's best crocheter, and I still have trouble reading the patterns sometimes, but I do love it just the same.

I'm obsessed with dishcloths. (in a good way)

I used to knit them with cotton yarn, and then I got a crocheted one. I'd like to find more patterns.

and hats.

ok. this was posted on another site...I recieved mine as a gift in an Apron Swap.

Crochet Dishcloth

Materials
I used a J hook, the smaller the hook, the smaller the cloth.
100% cotton thread/yarn

Chain 26 loosely.
SC in second chain from hook, sc across row, ch 1, turn
Repeat this row twice (25 sc ea row)

Next 16 rows - 3 sc, sc in back loop only of sc’s to within the last 3 sc, 3 sc, ch 1, turn

Repeat rows 1-3 (plain sc). End off

I don’t think you need to sc around the outside as you want this to be a bit loose and it doesn’t need to be “finished”.

These are so easy to make and are great for waiting in Dr offices etc. They fit in your purse easily.
I got the variegated 100% cotton at Walmart. It is NOT in the yarn area – it is with the crochet cotton.
The cotton yarn is also available at JoAnne’s
The name I used is “Sugar ‘n Crème” variegated


( mine is the sink now, wet, so I can't post a picture =)~ )

I've seen the sugar and cream yarn at Michaels. Luckily I'm stopping there on my way to my class tonight... so I'll definitely look for it.

As soon as it's dry, pictures!!

wallyworld has it in the larger spools but there's more colors available in the small balls. I love that it's cotton.

nannie it really doesn't matter how many stitches you start with - just keep the first and last 3-5 sts in sc. You can make it as large as you want!!!

Hey Melissa, Barb !

I just finished all the squares for an afghan I found on line. Now I have to figure out how to put it together!

I have been spending a lot of time in yarn shops lately....a lot of companies are now coming out with some really nice cotton yarns in addition to the Sugar n Cream....they are a lot thinner.... I always found the dish cloths from sugar n cream to be thicker than I cared for .... I plan on trying some of the new yarns when I get my current projects finished.

I have started a Snugglie for Sage, my granddaughter, from a free pattern at JoAnn's. I got the point of dividing for the arms and I just have not been able to figure out the directions yet.

The Free Pattern sites mentioned above are fantastic....I have downloaded sooo many patterns I want to make!

Oh I have downloaded so many of the patterns from those sites it isn't funny. I have a whole notebook full from some of the sites I go to. Lots cheaper than buying them.

I have some of the Sugar and Crean thread and I was thinking seriously about crocheting some socks out of it. I love cotton socks.
