Who likes washing dishes?

Yay or nay.

Since my dishwasher expired I have to wash dishes the old fashion way, by hand.  To my advantage, I can crochet my very own Scrubby Knobbly Crochet Dishcloth.  Yes, it’s a mouthful to say.

The Scubby Knobbly dishcloth is very easy and quick to make.  This is considered to be an easy pattern using single crochets and the bobble stitch.  The bobbles are a plus, they are great for scrubbing stubborn stains or the beloved pots and pans.

Materials:

1 Skein Lily Sugar n’ Cream Cotton Yarn

H (5.0) Hook

Scissors

Tapestry Needle

Notes:

  • Ch2 counts as a double crochet throughout the pattern
  • Gauge does not matter, it’s a dishcloth
  • Your bobble will pop out facing outwards

Stitches

ch –  chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

BS – bobble stitch = dc4tog (5 loops on hook)

st – stitch

Finished Size:  Approximately 8 X 8

Pattern:

Row 1:  Ch32, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across, turn. (31)

Row 2:  Ch1, sc in same st and in each sc across, turn.

Row 3:  Ch2 (counts as dc), dc in next 2 sc, *BS in next st, dc in next 3 sc, rep from *across, end with sc on top of turning ch. (24dc, 7BS)

Row 4:  Repeat Row 2

Row 5:  Repeat Row 2

Row 6:  Repeat Row 2

Row 7:  Repeat Row 3

Row 8 – 37:  Repeat Rows 2-7 five times

Row 38 – 40:  Repeat Row 2

Crochet Challenge Top

Ok, I have to admit again I often start projects and never complete them.  This is a personal challenge that I am trying to work on.  Since I’ve been told to stop jumping from project to project I challenged myself to complete the Simple Lace Summer Top on from CrochetNCrafts.  I loved the fact that this top looked classy and simple without shaping.

As the pattern stated you can use any yarn and hook size and I did just that.  As a further challenge for me, I used a thinner cotton yarn and went up a hook size.  I’ve never worked with Bernat Cotton-ish yarn and it was sale, yay!  Four skeins of Cotton Harvest (Burnt Orange) was used to complete my Crochet Challenge Top while I listened/watched the series of Scandal again.  That Olivia Pope is a force to be reckoned with.

Boom, pow, in about two weeks this lovely and airy top was created.  It took me actually three weeks to make because I was working on other projects in between.  This yarn will be perfect for any summertime top and will accommodate my many hot flashes.  It sure does suck getting old!
