Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

Knit Me Knot Dishcloth

The Knit Me Knot Dishcloth started out as an "I wonder if I can make this happen" experiment. I actually prefer to knit my dishcloths. Cotton yarn is a bit more expensive and knitting helps the yarn stretch farther. I have a friend that really loves the very popular, traditional, corner to corner, knit dishcloths but doesn't know how to knit. She loves the little ridges because she can get her finger in there and scrub better. She does know how to crochet but hasn't found a pattern she really loves yet that has that scrubby feature she likes. Since I was making dishcloths anyway I decided to play around with my hook to see what I could come up with that might be more what she was looking for and the Knit Me Knot Dishcloth was born!

This pattern has been sold to All Free Crochet. You can find the pattern HERE.


{If you are curious about the knit pattern, I usually just make mine using a pattern that a lot of knitters are probably already familiar with. I didn't feel it was fair to write it up since it is exactly the same as a number of other patterns already in existence. So if you are a knitter and would like to make one like the one I have pictured next to my crocheted Knit Me Knot Dishcloth you can fine a free pattern HERE.}

Hope all is well where you are, thanks for stopping by today. Be Happy!

  1. I've gathered a few dishcloth patterns, but I have to admit, after seeing your pattern, this is the first time I've been tempted to actually make one, so thank you for posting it :)

    I think I'll get out my container of partially used cotton skeins, and see what I come up with :)

  4. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store.

Owl Dish Scrubbie

Here is the window dressing promised in the Scrubbie Teaser Post from a couple weeks ago! How freaking adorable are these little owls???? I was so excited when my friend came to me with this idea! I approached Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and asked her what she thought about me linking to her post and I was soooo glad that she was ok with it! Look how cute these are!!!!! 
Alright, so step one is going to be to complete the scrubbie from the previous post, found HERE. Once you have completed that you can follow along with the rest of the pattern here:
Materials  Cotton yarn in as many colors as you like. (You will want to use cotton so that it absorbs water and is more durable for repeated washings. I (5.5 mm) Hook Yarn needle Extra strips of nylon net material from previous step. You are going to stuff the owl with it.
Notes You can put a scrubbie in front, or in back or in both places. However you think it will work best! I have completed one owl with the scrubbie in the front (the orange an…

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!!
Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

If you are a member of pretty much any crochet group on social media I'm betting by now you have heard of or seen the new planned pooling argyle craze. To catch you up in case you have no idea what I am talking about: color pooling with yarn is what happens when you work with a variegated yarn and the colors either seem to group together or form distinguishable patterns within your finished item. I'm sure you've made a hat or and somehow the green in the variegated yarn always seems line up or something similar. Planned pooling is basically planning ahead of time to make your variegated yarn come together in a way that creates a …
