Primrose Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

This primrose dishcloth crochet pattern is a simple pattern that will give you a chance to try out the lovely primrose stitch. #crochetaddict #crochetgift #ilovecrochet #crochetdishcloth #crochetpatternPrimrose Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

Well, this certainly isn’t the sexiest crochet pattern but it sure is practical.

If you haven’t used crocheted dishcloths for doing your dishes, you’re missing out. They’re fabulous for scrubbing dirty dishes and many people I know swear by them. These dishcloths are workhorses and after using them, you’ll never go back to store-bought cloths.

For this crochet dishcloth pattern, I used this amazing “2nd Time Cotton” which has a little extra texture to it. This yarn is 75% recycled cotton and 25% acrylic – a fantastic blend for scrubbing and drying out a little faster than 100% cotton yarn. It’s also an opportunity to be a little bit eco-conscience and that’s never a bad thing.

This crochet pattern is relatively simple and will give you a chance to try out the lovely primrose stitch. It uses basic crochet stitches that are perfect for beginners.

Crochet washcloths and dishcloths also make a cute gift for friends and family. People can never have too many dishcloths – especially cute handmade crochet dishcloths like these ones!

The Cross-Over Block Stitch Crochet Tutorial

| Crochet

The cross-over block stitch is a really easy stitch to crochet - if you can chain, single and double crochet then you can crochet this awesome stitch.Crochet Stitch of the Month – The Cross-Over Block Stitch

Welcome to my monthly stitch of the month post. This month I’m featuring a stitch I call the “Cross-Over” Block Crochet Stitch.

Earlier this month I was looking for a stitch for an infinity scarf I was hoping to make (look for that pattern coming shortly). I came across a stitch called the Block stitch – I was looking for something super easy and this definitely fit the bill. But I wasn’t wowed by the look and I felt it could use a little somethin’ somethin’ to spruce it up. I decided that crossing-over the block might give it some extra flair and texture so I gave it a try. Yep, that’s all it needed. I was in LOVE!

Now, I’m not implying that I invented this stitch. I’m sure it’s already out there and everybody uses it but somehow I’ve missed it. So, if you know if this stitch exists and what it’s called please let me know.

The cross-over block stitch is a really easy stitch to crochet so fear not. If you can chain, single crochet and double crochet then you’ve already got all the crochet skills you need to make this awesome stitch.

It’s the perfect stitch to use when you want an easy crochet pattern to do while you’re watching Netflix or your kid’s soccer game.

Cross-Over Block Stitch

Start by chaining multiples of 3 + 2 to the desired length.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the 5th chain from the hook, dc in each chain until the end of the row. Turn.

Row 2: Ch3, then in between the 3rd and 4th dc (the dc under the ch DOES NOT count as the 1st dc), do 1sc, ch2, *skip 3 dc and do 1sc, ch2 between the dc from the previous row * rep until the end of the row, ending with a sc in the last dc. Turn.

Row 3: Ch3, 2dc into the ch space below, plus 1dc crossed-over to the sc at the bottom of the turning ch. *2dc into the next ch space, plus 1dc crossed back over (to the right) into the sc from the previous row*. Rep until the end of the row ending with an additional dc in the last ch space (no cross-over).

Continue Rows 2-3 until you have reached the desired length for your project.

Big Button Puffy Cowl Crochet Pattern

Winter is coming (yes I watch Game of Thrones)! That means it’s time to hunker down with hot cocoa, movies, and plenty of cozy crochet blankets.  And I, for one, couldn’t be more excited!

Cold weather months help us slow down naturally, not only because of the holidays but also because it’s too chilly to even want to do much.  

Still, life goes on and as much as we might like to huddle beneath our duvets and hibernate, sometimes we do have to venture out.

And it’s on those days that you’ll want to break out this big button puffy crochet cowl.

Keep yourself cozy with this super warm cowl.  Wear it alone or pair it with your favorite winter coat for those extra chilly mornings.  It’s an easy to make crochet pattern and the thick yarn makes this work up very quickly.  

Plus, this crochet cowl has buttons so you don’t have to worry about it slipping off.  

With one of these in your arsenal, chilly mornings will be no match for you.
