Crocheted Dish Cloth Pattern

Here is the pattern for the Circular Crocheted Dish Cloths:


1 Skein acrylic any color yarn
G Hook

Stiches/abriviations used:
Single Crochet-Sc
Slip Stitch-SS
Double Crochet-Dc

Ch 6, SS in the first Ch, Sc all the way around.

Row 1 - Sc in every Sc all the way around.

Rows 2-4 - Ch 3, Dc in the first stitch, Dc in the second stitch, 2 Dc in the third stitch, repeat pattern all the way around (1,1,2,1,1,2).

Row 5 - Ch 1, Sc in the first stitch, Sc in the second stitch, 2 Sc in the third stitch, repeat pattern all the way around (same as rows 2-4 but sc instead).

Pull enough yarn out to make a loop, and cut. Tie the loose end of the yarn to the dish cloth to make a loop.

To make it bigger just add more rows in the "rows 2-4" area. You don't have to do just Sc and Dc, I have done plain Sc, and I have substituded Double Crochet with Triple Crochet. You can do tons of different patterns.
The Square/Rectangular ones are really easy, you just chain however long you want it and they you can do whatever stitchet you want.
I created the Circular dish cloth pattern so please do not sell it. :)

Goal Reached!!!

We have reached our goal!! The well in Africa can now be built!! We are all so happy that we finished it before Christmas!! You can go to our page on the Ambassadors for Life website to see all of the people who contriputed to this project. In the list you will find people who not only gave money toward the project, but hard work, and their own time(especially Saturday mornings:). We had $400 left to raise, and we really wanted to get it done before Christmas so that next year we could start another well. Then Dad told his friends about it and two gave alot. One of them gave $800!!! So we are already on the way to the second well!!! God has really blessed this project. To God be the Glory!!!

A Homemade Christmas, w. 8

A Homemade Christmas at

This is the Eighth Homemade Christmas week and my second time to post about it. You can click here to see my first one. Miss Emily Rose is the host of A Homemade Christmas, you can go to her site here or just click on the icon above.

This week for A Homemade Christmas I am posting about the acrylic-yarn dish cloths I crocheted for my Grandmas and Aunts last year. And they really liked them. I like making up my own patterns better than following other peoples patterns. So I designed this dish cloth that is great for dishes and wiping countertops and stovetops. I have also used it for cleaning up spilled stuff on the floor. It is an all-around-the-kitchen helper. It is acrylic though so you cannot get it too hot or it will melt! :) But you can wash it in the washer.

The circular ones are the ones I made for family.

Since I have a bunch of them, I am giving away one of each(circular and rectangular). So if you would like one then just leave a comment on this post and tell me which you would like and which color. (only the colors pictured). If you would like to make your own then I would be glad to give you the pattern. :)

The givaway ends next Thursday. Sorry for not telling you sooner. :)

Song of the Wave

"Rolling, rolling, o'er the deep,
Sunken treasures neath me sleep
As I shoreward slowly sweep.
Onward Peacefully I roll,
Ever thoughtless of the goal,
Sea-bells round be chime and toll.
There is peace above, below,
Far beneath me sea-weeds grow,
Tiny Fish glide to and fro,
Now in sunlight, now in shade,
Lost within some ocean glade
By the restless waters made.
Pushing onward as before,
Now descry the distant shore,
Hear the breakers sullen roar;
Quicken then my rolling pace,
With glad heart I join the race
O'er the white-capp'd glittering space,
Thinking naught of woe or grief,
Dancing, prancing, like a leaf,
Caring not for cliff or reef.
Lo! black cliffs above me loom,
Casting o'er me awful gloom,
And foretell my coming doom.
O1 that I might reach the land,
Reach and lave the sunny sand,
But these rocks on every hand-
Seem my joyous course to stay,
Rise and barmy happy way,
Shutting out the sun's bright ray.
I must now my bround crest lower
And the wild sea roam no more."
Hark! the crash and might roar,
Then the wave's sport life is o'er.
