Crochet the Jazz Age Washcloth!

Have you downloaded the Jazz Age Crochet Washcloth pattern yet? I have, and like many people somewhat new to crochet, I was not very confident that I have what it takes to make one. If this sounds like you, fear no more! We have a new video tutorial that will teach you all the key steps to crocheting your very own Jazz Age Washcloth. So grab some yarn (any will do, though the pattern suggests CotLin and that's what Jenny uses for the video), a crochet hook (we use a 4mm hook, though gauge isn't so important for a washcloth), watch the tutorial, and complete your very own Jazz Age Washcloth!

Happy Earth Day! Around here, many of us are taking part in various activities around in our area and we hope you will be doing the same.

Using dishcloths rather than disposable products creates less waste for our landfills.  We have over 100 free patterns, in both knit and crochet for you to enjoy - including one with a nifty recycle symbol - The Three R's Dishcloth!

The Queen Jane Blanket
Dishcloth Remix: The Queen Jane Blanket

You get the ease of a dishcloth pattern (think: no shaping!) but the pizazz the size of a blanket affords. This lovely lace pattern is the free Jazz Age dishcloth from our 52 Weeks of Dishcloths: A Kitchen Spectacular. I named it Queen Jane in honor of my little niece who was born just this week. Her adorable siblings held a coronation to install her as High Queen of the Home. Once the bitty Queen is big enough, she'll claim this blanket as her rightful own!

Free Pattern – Melodica Coin Purse

I feel like we don't see enough coin purses out there - they're so handy, not just for coins but for other small little items you don't want to have to keep digging though a big purse to find (I keep lip balm & gloss in mine!).  Plus they're handy if you just want to carry around a few items and not worry about a large purse on a night out. Well if you want to make one for yourself, check out the newest free pattern from the always creative SpillyJane, the Melodica Coin Purse!
