Here is my free crochet pattern for a wavy ripple dishcloth. I first used this wavy ripple style to crochet a lapghan and just love the look of the stitch pattern. So after some trial and errors, I came up with a dishcloth using blue tie-dye cotton Sugar ‘n Cream yarn.
Here is another dishcloth I crocheted using the wavy ripple pattern. I ran out of the pink twist cotton yarn so I only crocheted 13 rows. I added a white edging around the entire dishcloth by working single crochet stitches around evenly. I worked 2 single crochet stitches in the corners. This trim edging gives the dishcloth a little different look and may be useful it you are trying to use up scrap pieces of cotton.
My crochet pattern may be used to make a wavy ripple dishcloth or washcloth. Mix and match colors to create your own unique crocheted cloths.

Earlier this year someone sent me several vintage audio tape reels. I had never crafted with this type of film tape before and was excited to give it a try. I figured the tape would be similar to vcr video tape or cassette tape when I crocheted with it.
The tape from vcr and cassette tapes is strong and a bit stretchable. You can crochet and knit with the recycled material without it breaking very often. The material while strong is still flexible enough to create many different recycled video tape projects and cassette tape items. Unfortunately this was not the case with these old audio tapes.
My first attempt at crocheting with the tapes resulted in the tape strand breaking almost immediately. I could only crochet a stitch or two before one of the tapes broke. I typically crochet with two strands of recycled tape as it provides a more durable product. I tried one strand, I tried two strands, I tried adding a strand of yarn for stability, and nothing worked. […]

Here is a car wash mitt I crocheted using t-shirt yarn I recycled from several old white tee-shirts. I cut this t-yarn as narrow as I could to crochet this wash mitt. The result is a very thick wash mitt that you can use to scrub the car or other things you may need to clean.
I crocheted the wash mitt using the crocodile oven mitt pattern as the base of the mitt. I changed the cuff portion of the pattern to finish off the wash mitt using a colored t-shirt cut just as thin as possible. Make sure you stretch your t-shirt strips to create curled t-shirt yarn. Crochet the cuff using the colored t-yarn to complete the project.
I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern and make yourself a cool recycled wash mitt from your old tee-shirts.
