Keeping with my red, white, and blue patriotic theme, I present the In Between Dishcloth. I gave it that name as you double crochet the stitches in between each other for the main body of the cloth. The result is a simple but cute dishcloth pattern that works up fast and is easy to crochet.
The free crochet pattern below is written for the blue dishcloth as the main color. For the red dishcloth, you just substitute your main yarn using red cotton to start the dishcloth. Then trim around the red cloth using white and finishing with the blue cotton.
In Between Dishcloth Pattern

1/4 oz each of red and white cotton yarn for tirm
9 inch square dishcloth

Summer in America brings out the flags and other patriotic items in red, white and blues. It’s fun to decorate and use the colorful patriotic items around the house and at picnics. So with that in mind, I thought I’d crochet a few dishcloths and potholders.
I used my US flag dishcloth pattern to crochet the potholder and matching cloth. For the potholder, I recycled a plastic water bottle ring and just single crocheted around the ring and joined with a slip stitch into the corner to finish off the hanging loop.
Below is the finished off flag kitchen set.[…]
Check out this cute little winter sweater pattern I crocheted for my dolly. Doesn’t she just look snugly warm in the sweater? This doll is 11 inches long with a thick cloth body.
I crocheted this dolly sweater using a H (5 mm) crochet hook and some worst weight yarn. The free crochet pattern can be found at Crochetville from Darksi who has created many cute and free doll outfits over the years. Here is the link to the Seasoned Just Right outfits with all the free pattern details.
I crocheted just short sleeves for the sweater as I was running out of yarn. I did 3 rounds for the sleeves by working single crochet under the underarm and half double crochet stitches around the rest of the sleeve. I used a strip of Velcro on the back for a closure.[…]
Using crocheted diaper covers is a great way to provide a little extra protection for plastic disposal diapers or as a soaker cover over cloth diapers. I used Boomer Beanies worlds best diaper cover pattern and followed the pattern as written using just a single strand of yarn for my first diaper cover I crocheted. Several other people had used the same crochet pattern and created a double thick diaper cover by crocheting with two strands of yarn held together. I loved this idea and set out to adapt the pattern to create my own variation of a double thick diaper cover.
After playing around with the gauge and size of the cover, I used the original pattern following cloth size 1 as I crocheted the pattern using two strands of worst weight yarn. Changes I made were chain 21 stitches to start using a J (6 mm) crochet hook. […]
Here is my very thick front post crocheted hat. The hat is crocheted by working all front post double crochet stitches in the round. The result is a comfortable very heavy winter hat that will keep you warm.
You can add a few extra rounds to make a longer hat as this is one more of a helmet cap as shown. I have included changes for a smaller ladies or youth size in the free crochet pattern below.

Here is my first ever corner to corner afghan. I crocheted this using one strand of black yarn held with different shades of blue scrap yarn I had in my stash. I tried to do a color scheme by starting and ending with the same bright shade of blue yarn. I then just used some different colors with a light blue yarn in the center.
I used this corner to corner afghan pattern to crochet my blanket. The pattern has a good video tutorial that is found here which I found very useful on how to get the pattern started.
Here is one photo while the lapghan was in progress.[…]
I love crafting with recycled materials. So when I crocheted these potholders, I used recycled plastic rings for the projects. I recycled these plastic rings from milk, juice and other plastic bottles.
Here are two crocheted potholders I made using my recycled rings. The green potholder has a milk jug ring for it’s loop ring and the blue speckled potholder has a smaller juice ring for the hanging ring. So depending if you like a larger hanging loop or smaller, just choose the ring dimension that you like best to crochet around the plastic ring for your potholders.
Both of these potholders were crocheted using my free basic potholder pattern. […]
