Learning to Crochet

I have been teaching myself to crochet by making these simple cloths. They will make great housewarming gifts and stocking stuffers at Christmas. I am finding that I like to crochet dish/wash cloths more than I like knitting them. I still think that knitting is more versatile... but I like the crocheted cloths better.

These are the
These are the Back Loop Stitch, Grit and Sedge cloths from the Sandy Shore Washcloth set. They were easy and quick and an excellent second project in crochet.

This is the Tulip Stitch cloth and I think it is one of the prettiest ones I've done. The pattern is easier than it looks and pretty addictive.

This one is the Bubble Stitch and I think that I will be making a lot more of these. I really enjoyed making this one. It was quick, easy and it made a cloth with a nice texture.


  1. you knit better than I do. I'm still trying to figure out how to read the knitting instructions. I fear I need to pay for a class. BTW: I saw your ETZY cards. They are hilarious! I might order the thank you cards. I do get some odd gifts from time to time! -Sandra.

  2. Thanks a lot Sandra! Glad you like my knitting and the cards.

  3. Well done!!!!!! I wish I could:(
