Primrose Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

| Crochet

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.

For this 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 pattern is relatively simple and will give you a chance to try out the lovely primrose stitch.

Easy Crochet Can Cozy Pattern

| Crochet

If you're going to have a few beverages, why not have crochet can cozy's around the cans to prevent your hands from getting cold and wet. Learn how here.

Easy Crochet Can Cozy Pattern

There’s nothing better than sitting and watching the sunset by the beach while having a delicious cold beer or cider.

It’s become a weekend tradition around here and every Friday and Saturday, we’ll find our group of friends slowly sauntering down to the beach after dinner. We all bring our lawn chairs and cheers our drinks as we watch the sun slowly sink down behind the trees on the opposite side of the lake.

Ahhh, lake life is the best life.

Now if you’re going to have a few beverages, why not have cozy’s around the cans to prevent your hands from getting cold and wet. My first cozy turned out so well, soon I was getting requests from all my friends to crochet can cozy’s for them too. 

This is a really easy crochet project that you can complete in under an hour. You can keep it plain or spruce it up with different colors and stripes if you’d like. You have the power to customize it as you see fit.

Round 1: Ch3, 11dc into the circle, join with a sl st.

Round 2: Ch3, 2dc into each st, join with a sl st.

Round 3: Ch1, *1sc in the next 3 st, 2sc in the next st*, repeat around the circle, join with a sl st.

Round 4: Ch1, 1sc in each st around, join with a sl st (use a stitch marker to keep track of your rounds).

Round 5 – 16: Repeat row 4. Bind off and weave in ends.

Have fun with colors and creating stripes – change colors as you see fit. I went in and added stripes with a row of slip stitches once all the rows were complete.
