I crocheted some adorable heart themed dishcloths and pot holders for Valentine’s day this year! Most went into a thank you package for my mother in law, who has been doing lots of amazing sewing projects for me! And just a few dishcloths stayed behind for me and some others. :)
I found the pattern for this cute little one here.
I also used this pattern to make a couple of pot holders with much thicker yarn. So cute!
This one is adorable, but I found it to be the most complicated. I had to pay very careful attention to my counts and my stitches. I found this pattern on pinterest, available from http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Teacuplane/heart-blanket-crochet. The pattern is actually for a blanket, but I just made one square with cotton yarn and called it a dishcloth! :)
This one was my favorite, but I actually didn’t follow the pattern too closely..! It was more of a guide — but definitely a great one! And very easy and quick! The original pattern is here: http://www.heartmadeblessings.org/Patterns/Caringhearts.php
My changes from the pattern:
- After I made the first one, I decided to start the heart one row sooner… because I felt like it!
- To keep them from getting too big for my liking, on the last two rounds I used single crochet instead of double.
- I had seen pictures of the hearts made of spaces (like mine are) instead of the special stitch the pattern uses. Whenever it called for the popcorn stitch, I just did a single chain and moved on.
- On a couple of the dishcloths I used a different color on my last round – just for fun!
