Dishcloths: The Swap

I signed up to be in a Dishcloth Swap on Ravelry. My partner for the swap is a fan of purple, so here are the dishcoths I made in all their grape-y goodness!

This is the Open Ridge Dishcloth by Betsey Sennott. It's a quick crochet and works up nicely.

The other cloth was made using the Interlocking Shells stitch from the new book, The Harmony Guides: Basic Crochet Stitches: 250 Stitches to Crochet. I LOVE this book. So many cool stitches that I never even knew existed. This one is a little more time consuming to make because of the yarn changes, but worth it. I edged it by working single crochet all the way around, then a round of ch 3 sk 2 sc and slst into the 3rd sc. And, finally, I worked 5 dc in each ch 3 sp.

They are now ready to wing their way to Wendy in Australia. I hope she enjoys them!

These were made in Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton Solids, #250 Amethyst and #262 Mulberry.

Hi Becky,
I'm so late with my blog reading.
Those slippers are wonderful and so is the purple dishcloth. I love items which crochet up quickly don't you!
I've put you in my giveaway!
Thanks for popping over and for your comments!
Hugs and Love Suex

Oooh, lovely! That yarn looks nice... we don't have Hobby Lobby here in Cleveland.

BTW, I've caught the crochet bug!

Hobby Lobby doesn't have a very extensive yarn selection, but this is their store brand and it's a really nice cotton. It feels more like a very soft acrylic. It's really nice for baby things. Glad you are enjoying your crocheting!
