Blueberry Dishcloth and Heartfelt Towel

Dishcloth+ Series: February’s Blueberry Dishcloth and Heartfelt Towel Crochet Pattern

Berry Dishcloth and Heartfelt Towel

For Valentine’s month we’ve created a beautiful heart embossed kitchen towel using the “Uneven Berry” stitch (Stitch #27 from the Crochet Stitch Dictionary). It’s a simple stitch that creates a beautiful puff perfect for creating raised designs.

The dishcloth is the perfect project to master the stitch. And it’s super practical. The bumpy side is great for scrubbing stuck-on grim and the smooth side works great for smooth cleaning like glasses and cups.

Pictured, the dishcloth and kitchen towel are crocheted in Fibra Natura Good Earth distributed by Universal Yarn. This cotton linen blend is perfect for going from sink to washing machine and back again.

Play Ball Baseball and Football Stadium Cushions and Pillows

Love sports? We created a crochet pattern for a throw pillow and stadium cushions to help keep you comfortable at your next baseball, softball or American football game.

These stadium cushions are surprisingly easy to make and have several fun design features. There are shoulder straps to make them easy to carry to the game. There are tie downs on the side so you can tuck the shoulder strap away while in use. And we’ve included zippers so the cushion covers can be washed.

It’s hip to be square…or just a bit cheeky.

Panda Set – Crochet Details

The spike stitch is used where colors change to give the illusion of fur. We’ve included information on how to make a furry panda bean bag using Fun Fur.

Everything in the pattern is surprisingly easy to make. We rate the pattern intermediate because of the foundation ch (sometimes called no foundation chain stitches) used in the leaves of the bamboo.
