Robin Egg Kitchen Set

Crocheted Kitchen Set

Presently a kitchen set crocheted using Sugar and Cream cotton in colorway Robin’s Egg blue along with some white cotton yarn. This set is complete with a recycled plastic item.

The hexagram shaped dishcloth was crocheted using this free dishcloth pattern. It’s a fun little pattern that works up quickly and is a great way to use up scraps of yarn too.

The double-thick diagonally crocheted potholder uses this free pattern. I chain 34 to start which creates a finished potholder about 6.5 inches wide.

To finish up the kitchen set, I crocheted a scrubbie that is worked with the cotton yarn along with recycled plastic vegetable netting. You need about 3-4 nets or you can also use store-bought netting cut in a thin strip. You hold the cotton yarn and netting together

Waterlily Hotpad

Crocheted Waterlily Hotpad

I saw the beautiful waterlily hotpad that was created by Stacey Lee on Ravelry and just loved the look of it. After dowloading the pattern and reading some of the comments, I knew that this pattern was going to be challenging to crochet.

My modifications and changes:
First I did not fasten off after each round. This is not necessary in my opinion plus I really dislike weaving in ends. I just adjusted my stitches to match the pattern without finishing off each round. Everything went pretty good until round 5 when I just hit a wall. But after several attempts, here is what I did to get the pattern to at least look like the picture.
