Today I have a quick and easy pattern for you guy's! A rustic dishcloth. I've noticed as we head into spring and summer a lot of people lean more towards the "home goods' type of crochet and knitting patterns. Dishcloths are just that. Which means they are always a win for spring time craft shows!
When making a dishcloth/washcloth it's always best to use a cotton yarn. This is do to the fact cotton is absorbent and durable, which means it's the perfect fiber for scrubbing and cleaning!
I'm not exactly sure what stitch I used for this pattern. I just started working a single and double crochet together to create a pretty texture.
Ch - Chain
SC - Single Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
5.00mm Crochet Hook
approx. 100 yards cotton yarn
Approx. 10" X 10"
R1 - Turn, SC into 2nd Ch from hook and across (31)
R2 - Ch1, Turn, *SC, DC, repeat from * across (31)
R3 - Ch2, Turn, *DC, SC, repeat from * across (31)
Repeat Rows 2 & 3 for a total of 29 rows
R30 - Ch1, Turn, SC across (31)
Fasten off. Weave in ends.
In all the years I've been crocheting/knitting I am yet to make a pom pom rug! Of course, this DIY does not require you to crochet/knit but with having such a large yarn stash you would think I'd have made one by now.
I've been pretty busy lately, as most of you know this blog is new to me and I'm still working on coming up with fun DIY projects for you all. I've actually been in an inspiration rut lately, when this happens I will often leave my house and just wonder around town. So that's exactly what I did!
Recently, a family friend of ours visited us and she happened to bring along dish scrubbies. Random? Yes. Useful? Totally.
As our we chatted she began to tell me about her dish scrubbies, she went on to say that making them was her "thing." She exclaimed, "They are a great and quick project that I am easily able to sell for my fundraisers."
This throw has definitely made it's way to the top of my "Favorite Cozy Blankets I've made list" mostly do to the fact I despise crocheting blankets and i've honestly only made 3 in my crochet career.
As for the name; Hygge. I chose this Danish name specifically because of it's wondrous meaning.
" In Danish, hygge (pronounced “HUE-gah”) is one such word. Though there are many ways to describe hygge, we see it simply as the Danish ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures. Friends. Family. Graciousness."

A few years ago bun beanies went VIRAL. And when I say viral, I mean instantly overnight these stylish beanies took over the internet. I remember being tagged in a multitude of photos of these hats on Facebook, so I decided to make a few and see how they did on my Etsy shop.
Have you ever been gifted a gorgeous skein of hand dyed yarn and had absolutly no idea what to make with it? No worries friends I have found the perfect project for you, a basic half double crochet beanie, or as I like to call it, the Nola Beanie!
Recently, I've found myself struggling to find inspiration. Sometimes, I try so hard to design amazing pieces that I end up completely failing.
It's such a sucky feeling.
One way I am able to come out of that "funk" is by strolling the yarn aisle at Hobby Lobby or Joanns and letting the yarn speak for itself. The different colors, textures, weights, all have something to say.
Do you guy's know what the absolute BEST part of summer is?

What I love the most about this pattern is the fact that you are able to use pretty much any texture/fiber of yarn and the blanket will always turn out beautiful! Don't feel like you have to use the same yarn I did, I've used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and this blanket turns out just as squishy and gorgeous as always.
