Crochet Heart Washcloths

I follow a few crochet groups on facebook, and one of them shared this really cute pattern for a heart coaster.  I immediately clicked through to the pattern and thought, I am so going to make that!!  Ok, fast forward to that night, I sit down with the pattern and my yarn.  I crochet, it isn’t looking right, so I frog it.  I start again, get caught up in the same spot and have to frog again!  At this point, I’m getting kind of pissy, but I think, ok, ONE LAST TIME.  I start again, making sure I am following the instructions to a ‘T’.  It’s still not right.  So I frogged it, said forget it, and went to pinterest.  I thought that surely there would have to be an easier heart pattern out there!  And there was :-).

The pin I found took me to THIS post.  So I started again…. and I messed up the first time.  Sigh.  All I can say is WTF dude.  BUT I went back and checked the pattern, saw where I messed up, and was able to fix it.

Make sure you take note that starting at Row 13, you don’t HDC, DC in the same stitch, it is JUST a HDC.  lol.

Overall, it’s a fairly simple pattern that I can now do without looking at the written pattern.  Once you realize how it is HDC, DC, SC, DCx amount of times, SC, DC then HDC…you’re golden until row 13.

The yarn that I used was just a regular cotton yarn that I get at Walmart– Peaches and Cream?  I also used a G hook for my heart dishcloths, and they are really big…so I wouldn’t use an H like they did, personally.  I also just finished the cloths in a super simple border.  It’s just a single crochet all the way around.  I posted these on facebook and immediately sold 5 washcloths and a potholder, so I’d say it worked out well for me! 😉

I love the stitch that it makes– it is very dense, which will be good for dishwashing.  I think they would make fun little Valentine’s Day gifts for friends/sisters/moms/etc.  I am actually planning to make some of these to have in my farmer’s market booth.  Hearts don’t have to be just for Valentine’s Day!

Love it!  For the potholder, I will just make two, then attach with the SC border around, then probably go around once more with another round of SC.  Easy peasy!

****I did not use the edging posted here, I just did a SC all around my washcloth.  Visit the website above to see what the edging looks like that she posted.  It’s verry pretttty!
Edging
Round 1: Using size G hook, attach MC with a sc in the bottom point of the heart, work 22 sc along the side of the heart in the hdc of each row, sc in each of the 5 sts on row 22, sc in the sides of the next 6 hdc in the top center of the heart, sc in each of the 5 sts on row 22, sc along the side of the heart in the hdc of each row; join with a sl st to the first dc. (61 sc) Fasten off.

Repeat round 1 of edging on the second heart.

Round 2: With wrong sides of hearts together and matching, sc through each sc of both hearts to join. (61 sc) Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Round 3: Using size F hook, attach CC with a sc in the sc at the bottom point of the heart, (ch 2, sc in the next sc) 29 times, skip next sc, sc in the next sc, ch 15 for hanging loop, sc in the next sc, skip next sc, (sc in the next sc, ch 2) 29 times; join with a sl st to the first sc.

Round 4: (Sl st in the next ch 2 sp, ch 2, dc in the same ch 2 sp) 29 times, skip next sc, sl st in the next sc, sl st in each of the 15 chs of the hanging loop, sl st in the next sc, skip the next sc, (sl st in the next ch 2 sp, ch 2, dc in the same ch 2 sp) 29 times; join with a sl st to the first sl st. Fasten off.

Weave in ends.

Hot Pad Instructions
Work as for potholder, substituting a size G hook for the size F hook, and a size H hook for the size G hook, and eliminating the ch 15 for the hanging loop in the edging.

Dishcloth Instructions
Make only one heart. Work as for potholder, substituting a size H hook for the size F hook, and a size I hook for the size G hook. Skip round 2 of the edging, and and eliminate the ch 15 for the hanging loop in round 3 of the edging.
