Crochet Pattern: Pineapple Applique

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 4th, 2016 Be the first to comment
Have you noticed how popular pineapples have been lately? Artistic renderings of pineapples are adorning all kinds of things from clothing to accessories to school supplies! This crocheted pineapple applique was inspired by a cartoon image I found online. I like how this one is a little unsymmetrical. For some reason that appeals to me. It would be fun to crochet this in different colors to decorate a tote bag, t-shirt, pencil case, or even a book cover. Just use strong glue to attach them.

How to Crochet: Standing Single Crochet

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 2nd, 2016 6 Comments

Standing single crochet is a method for joining a new yarn and/or color to your work. It is as simple as starting with a slip knot on your hook with your new yarn and making a single crochet stitch. You can use this technique in place of having to tie your new yarn to your work.

The bag is crocheted from the bottom up in one piece, seamlessly in the round like a spiral. Then the strap and the fox’s face is sewn on.

Crochet Patterns: Dishcloths, Washcloths, and Cleaning Cloths

By Rachel Choi – July 28th, 2016 8 Comments

Have you ever tried crocheting your own dishcloths, washcloths or other cleaning cloths? If you have, you just might be hooked on them! The feel of a handmade cloth is like nothing else. They can be customized to be any size, shape and color that you want. They’re extremely sturdy and can be washed and reused over and over again.

What’s the difference between dishcloth, washcloth and other cleaning cloth patterns? There really isn’t any difference. You can crochet any of the cloth patterns and decide later what you want to use it for, whether it’s washing dishes, the counter tops, your face and body, or even the car. In this post I rounded up a few of the cleaning cloth patterns that we have here on Crochet Spot.
