Kitchen Swap Set

Posted on November 2, 2012

I participated in a swap called envelope of doom over at Ravelry. The swap involves sending your partner an envelope filled with items that you don’t know what to do with or don’t need. Our group on Ravelry is a group of crafters that enjoy creating treasures from trash. So the goal with the envelope contents was to make useful things from items received. I received some pretty teal colored yarn in my envelope which I used to crochet this kitchen set.

I crocheted this scrubbie using the yarn and added some recycled lettuce netting to one side of the scrubbie. Here is a link to my post showing how I created this recycled kitchen scrubber.

Next I used some of the yarn to crochet a towel topper. I used bar towel for this project. It’s larger than most kitchen towels but makes an excellent kitchen towel. I folded the towel in half and crocheted the towel topper without sewing or cutting. This double layer method works well to create a fast project that only involves crocheting. Here is the final results.
