See, told ya I would post something before Thursday!
So I have this board on Pinterest for all kinds of patterns….crochet, sewing, embroidery, etc….and at almost 650 pins, it’s a bit ridiculous. I’m not sure I would EVER be able to finish all of those patterns, but my new goal is to try a pattern from off of the board at least once a month. There are so many really cool ideas on there, but if you don’t actually DO them, what’s the point? So, to put a giant check mark on the first month– I made these!
This is actually THREE new dishcloth patterns (I’m an overachiever, what can I say?!), but I they totally go together! I made this set to take up to the Farmer’s Market I set up at each Saturday morning, and they sold the first day! I might make a few more sets, but dude……that bat is HARD. I might just stick to the ghostie and the pumpkin.
I didn’t follow the ghost pattern exactly, because I don’t like my washcloths really big (and I was running out of white cotton yarn…). I just stopped when I had him about the size of my hand. The bottom scallops weren’t spaced out exactly right, but overall he was super cute!
The pumpkin worked up super quick and was a really easy pattern. The stem was the funnest (is that even a word?!) part….it’s crazy how doing more than one stitch in the same space will make that fun curly q! I have made a few more of those for my booth, too.
Now, the bat on the other hand…..it was kind of difficult. I don’t know if I lost count somewhere or if the pattern isn’t quite correct, but it just wasn’t working up right. So I was pretty much just winging it. Who knows, it was probably my fault anyway. But either way, he turned out pretty cute!
(I think you will have to be a member of Ravelry to view the patterns, but it’s a fantastic site and I would highly recommend becoming a member)
Have you tried any new patterns lately? Care to share?
