I found this pretty Easter flowered towel at Shopko and turned it into a crocheted Easter gift. I folded it in half and crocheted a pink towel topper onto the kitchen towel.
I used the free crochet pattern called double layered waffle towel topper pattern. The only change I made was for the extra large pink button I added for the closure. Because it was so large, I chained 3 stitches for the buttonhole. I then crocheted a few extra stitches into the buttonhole on the next row to secure the large opening for the button. It worked out great and the button fits through the hole nicely.
I love this double layered, no cutting or sewing towel topper. They make such nice gifts and work up super fast. So if you need a quick gift idea, check out this crochet project.[…]

Need a quick and easy gift idea? How about crocheting around the edges of a store-bought dishcloth. Here are a few inexpensive dishcloths I bought and by adding a quick handmade edging you have a pretty little gift.
Here is a closeup showing the simple single crochet edging.
To crochet the edging around the dishcloth, I used a small C (2.75 mm) crochet hook. It easily goes through the thin dishcloth and just attach at any corner.[…]
I crocheted this plastic basket from recycled plastic retail bags. The bags are cut 1 inch wide and connected using the loop method to create plarn or plastic bag yarn. Here is the free plarn basket pattern I used to crochet the basket.
The basket is filled with kitchen items for an upcoming Relay for Life fundraiser. Included in the basket are potholders, an oven mitt, dishcloths and pot scrubber.

Sharing my latest granny stitch kitchen items I crocheted. I used jute cotton yarn for the main yarn color and added forest green cotton for contrast while creating these granny square items.
Potholder crocheted using the granny stitch potholder pattern. I crocheted the center in forest green cotton and then worked the pattern in jute cotton until row 8. Worked row 8 in forest green and row 9 in jute cotton. Trimmed in single crochet with the forest green and added a hanging loop from a recycled water bottle ring.

Here are some new cotton dishcloths I recently crocheted. I wanted to try a new stitch and crocheted these dishcloths using the linen stitch. The linen stitch creates a nice thick woven-look cloth.
The easy peasy crochet pattern for my linen dishcloths were crocheted using these linen stitch details.
What you need to crochet your linen stitch dishcloth:
Crochet hook: H (5 mm)
2 ounces of cotton yarn in main color and small amount of white cotton yarn
This is a basic granny stitch dishcloth but with a twist on the beginning round. I crocheted additional stitches to create a wider center to give the dishcloth a flower petal look. Plus it is a great pattern for using scraps of cotton yarn to crochet a cute-looking dishcloth.

Crocheting towel toppers for Christmas gifts has been at the top of my project list this year. Here are a few towels I made using the double layered method that requires no cutting or sewing. Just click on the link for a picture tutorial that will show how easy these double layer towels can be crocheted. I love these towels as they are double thick and hold up longer than the thin kitchen towels.
All of these towel toppers were crocheted using the waffle towel topper pattern. The red Christmas tree towel is a smaller novelty towel that I bought for 80 cents each. Just fold the towel in half […]
Here is my latest open-stitched crocheted dishcloth pattern for those that like that style of a cloth. It reminds me of a picket fence and thus the name was given to this pattern. I added a crab stitch or reverse single crochet trim to finish off the dishcloth.
I hope you enjoy the free crochet pattern and happy crocheting to all!
