Reflect cloths

Want to make a really fun dish cloth? Do you want it to match your Blue Willow dishes? Look no further! This yarn is a perfect match for those family heirlooms; indeed it will look as if you chose yarn that was absolutely MADE for them! Reflect is worked in the round from the center out, using griddle stitch, and includes a single-crochet edging in a second color. The griddle stitch is solid, perfect for scrubbing! Additionally, the linen content in this yarn makes it nice and strong, so your dish cloth will last through many many scrubbings and washing and dryings. And you know what? I bet you can’t make just one. And why would you want to?

Summer Silk

NOTES:  
~ I like to wind my skein into a center-pull cake, and then use both the center and the outside strands held together. Some like to wind half the skein, cut, then wind the other half and use them like that. This is totally up to you!
~ For Summer Silk, I use a Standing Double Crochet (SDC) to start my DC rows. Here is a tutorial on how to do this, but if you’d rather use ch 3, that works too.

Let's Do It!

Pattern:

1) Ch 5 (counts as DC, ch 1, here and throughout,) (DC, ch 1, DC) in 1st ch. Turn.  = 5 sts

5) (Standing DC, ch 1, DC) in first st, sk next ch-1 sp, SC in next DC, sk next ch-1 sp and DC, (DC, ch 1, DC, ch 1, DC) in next SC, sk next DC and ch-1 sp, SC in next DC, sk next ch-1 sp, (DC, ch 1, DC) in last st. Turn.  =13 st

6) Ch 1, 2 SC in first st, *sk ch-1 sp and next DC, (DC, ch 1, DC, ch 1, DC) in next SC, sk next DC and ch-1 sp, SC in next st; rep from * to end, ending with 2SC in last st. Turn.  = 15 st

7) (Standing DC, ch 1, DC, ch 1, DC) in first st, sk next SC and next DC and next ch-1 sp, *SC in next (center) DC, sk next ch-1 sp and DC, (DC, ch 1, DC, ch 1, DC) in next st; rep from * to end, skipping the next to last SC and placing your last (DC, ch 1, DC, ch 1, DC) in final st. Turn.  = 17 st

8) (Standing DC, ch 1, DC) in first st, sk next ch-1 sp, SC in next DC, sk next ch-1 sp and DC,* (DC, ch 1, DC, ch 1, DC) in next SC, sk next DC and ch-1 sp,, SC in next DC, sk next ch-1 sp and DC; rep from * to end, putting (DC, ch 1, DC) in last st. Turn.  = 19 st

9-25) Rep Rows 6-8 five times, and then rows 6-7 once more. You should have a stitch count of 53.

Summer Silk Chart

Wrapping It Up

Now you will begin working in rounds.

1) Ch 1, SC around entire triangle, putting 3SC into each corner. Join to first SC with sl st.

2) Ch 1, SC in each stitch to first corner, (SC, ch 3, sl st in 1st ch, SC) down left side and up right side. Join with sl st. Cut yarn.

(If you have an extra stitch left over, it’s totally fine. Nobody will ever notice if you fudge it.)

Strap:

1) Ch 80, SC in first SC from last round and in each SC across front, ch 81. Turn.

2) Ch 1, SC in each ch and SC to end. Turn.

3) Ch 1, SC across to end. Turn.

Repeat Row 3 four more times. Cut yarn. Weave in ends.

Summer Silk

All Finished!

Dad’s Can Cozy

Dad’s Can Cozy

FREE crochet pattern

Dad's can cozy

Guys are hard to crochet for, at least in my experience. So many crochet patterns are for more feminine items, and finding masculine crochet is challenging. Scarves are easy, but not for summer.  I needed something for my guys for Father’s Day, and this Dad’s Can Cozy is what I came up with. Whether he’s into beer or soda, or both, this can cozy is just what he needs. The back-loop-only stitches make it super textured for a firm grip. It will keep his hand and his can dry, and can be thrown into the washer and dryer along with everything else. Make him two in his favorite colors and he’ll never be without one!

To purchase the printable .pdf, click here.

For a Lightening Quick Tutorial of the single crochet back loop only (SCblo) click here.

Getting started

Stitches:  Ch, sl st, SC, SCblo
Yarn:  Worsted cotton, approx. 50 yards (I used Dishie in the samples shown.)
Hook:  I/5.5mm or size needed to obtain gauge
Sizes:  3.75” tall when on can, circumference of can

Gauge:  4 SC x 4 rounds = 1”

NOTES: 
After the base is finished, and you switch to white, ALL stitches will be worked in the back loop only. 

can cozy

Pattern

1) Ch 2, 6SC in 2nd ch from hook. Join with sl st.  = 6 SC

2) Ch 1, 2SC in each st around. Join.  = 12 SC

3) Ch 1, SC in first st, 2 SC in next st, *SC in next st, 2SC in next st; rep from * around. Join.   = 18 SC

4) Ch 1, SC in first two sts, 2SC in next st, *SC in next two sts, 2SC in next st; rep from * around. Join.  = 24 SC

5) Ch 1, SC in first three sts, 2SC in next st, *SC in next three sts, 2SC in next st; rep from * around. Join.  = 30 SC

6) Ch 1, SCblo in each st around. Join.  

This is where I join the white and start making stripes. You can do this however you want: keep the whole thing one solid color, add another color and alternate each round to make stripes all the way up, or stripe it another way! The possibilities are endless. Just be sure to carry your unused color up each row by catching it at the join.

In the samples pictured above, the stripes are made on rows 17 and 19.

7-21) Ch 1, SCblo around. Join. Cut yarn. Weave in ends.

You’re finished! Wasn’t that easy? If you enjoyed this pattern, please share by linking back to my blog or Ravelry shop. Every little thing you do to spread the word helps Rows and Roses to grow. Got questions? I’m only a click or two away!

Blooming Hand Towel

Blooming Hand Towel

FREE Crochet pattern

Blooming Towel

Every now and then, I have an idea that doesn’t go as planned. Blooming Hand Towel is a great example! I wanted a kitchen towel for Mother’s Day to go with a Best Potholder and a Trivet in Bloom. I love making matching sets for my mom and she loves getting them! When I sat down with my yarn to design a kitchen towel, I don’t know what happened but I started making flowers. Then THIS happened, and it was even better than any of the ideas I had thought of before. I love it when that happens 🙂 Blooming Hand Towel includes some lovely little join-as-you-go flowers that are a cinch to make, with a solid body that is both absorbent and beautiful. And with all of the colors of Dishie Solids, Dishie Multi, and Dishie Twist available, you can make it to match any decor!

Want a printable .pdf of this pattern? Grab it here.

A little info

Stitches:  Ch, sl st, SC, DC, TC

Yarn:  Approx. 210 yards of worsted weight cotton
(WeCrochet Dishie, “Blush”  50 yards/ “Azure” Twist  160 yards)

Hook:  J/10

Sizes:  Approx. 23” long x 11” wide

Gauge:  First two rounds of flower = 2” across from petal to petal

flower

Blooming Hand Towel- let's get started!

Pattern:

First, we make three flowers and join them as we go.

First flower:

Ch 4. Join to form loop.

1) 12 DC in loop. Join.  = 12 DC (I always use a standing DC for my first, but if you want to use a ch 2 + DC, or a ch 3, you totally can. Personal preference here 🙂 )

2) Sl st into sp between first two DCs, 2 DC into each sp around. Join.  = 24 DC

3) Sk first DC, (3 DC, TC, 3 DC) into next st, sk 1 st, sl st into next st. This is petal #1. Now *sk next st, (3 DC, TC, 3DC) into next st, sk 1 st, sl st into next st; rep from * around to make petals #2-6. Join with a sl st into st we started in. Cut yarn. Weave in ends.  = 6 petals

Great! Your first flower is finished! Now we’re going to make a second, and then a third, and join them as we go. Ready?

Second flower:

Work rounds 1 and 2 just the same as the first flower.

3) *Sk first DC, (3 DC, TC) into next st, join with sl st into TC of petal #1 on first flower by holding the flowers wrong sides together and inserting the hook from back to front, 3 DC into that same stitch, sk 1 st, sl st into next st. This is petal #1. Rep from * once more for petal #2, joining in petal #2 of first flower. **Sk next st, (3 DC, TC, 3 DC) into next st, sk next st, sl st into next st. This is petal #3.  Rep from ** for petals #4-6. Join with sl st into st we started in. Cut yarn. Weave in ends.

Excellent! We’re nearly there. Now for the final flower.

Third flower:

Repeat second flower, but make sure to use petals #4 and #5 of second flower for joining, instead of #1 and #2.

Now you should have a nice little row of flowers connected to each other, just like this:

LineOfFlowers

Now to add the towel

Lay your row of flowers in front of you, right side up. Assuming you are right-handed, as this pattern is written right-handed, locate the two petals alllllll the way to the right. See that top one, the one pointing at about two o’clock? Now find the TC in that petal. That’s where we’re going to join our towel yarn. I like to use a different color for the towel, but if you want to use the same as your flowers, I’m not gonna try to talk you out of it. Life is short, do what makes you happy <3

Now join your towel yarn with a sl st into that TC. 

Ch 8, SC  into the TC of the petal just to the left of our starting petal, ch 12, SC into the topmost petal of the next flower, ch 12, SC into the TC of the topmost petal on the final flower, ch 8, sl st into the TC of the petal just to the left of the previous petal.

Now our towel is ready to go! Here’s what you have so far:

ConnectedFlowers

You're doing great!

Towel:

1) Sl st into the first 4 chs, SC into each of the next 4 chs, *SC into the next SC, SC into each of the next 12 chs* twice, SC into the next SC, SC into the next 4 chs leaving the last 4 chs unworked. Ch 1, turn.  = 35 SC

2) DC in each st to end. Ch 1, turn.  = 35 DC

3) SC in each st to end. Turn.  = 35 SC

Repeat rows 2-3 (21) times. Cut yarn.

Now go back to the chs we made when we first started the towel. With right side facing, join with sl st into the very first ch on the very first petal (remember the 4 chs that we left unworked on row 1? That first ch is what we’re looking for, joined to the TC of the first petal.)

Ch 1, SC in each ch, up the side of the towel (I usually put one SC into each SC row and two SCs into each DC row) across the top, down the other side, and into each of the 4 sl sts there at the end. Cut yarn. Weave in ends.

Trivet In Bloom

Trivet In Bloom

FREE crochet pattern!

Trivet

How about a FREE crochet pattern for Mother’s Day? I present to you, Trivet in Bloom! While I was running a CAL for my Best Potholder You’ll Ever Own, I got the idea that maybe for Mother’s Day this year, I could create a matching trivet and kitchen towel to make a set. I knew that flowers would be great, but I just wasn’t exactly sure how I could make that work for a trivet. It came to me while in bed one night trying to get to sleep (isn’t that always the way??) The next morning I gave it a shot, and the most lovely little flower just fell off my hook. This is what I give you today, a Trivet in Bloom for the special lady in your life (and yes, that could totally be YOU!) 

If you want a printable .pdf version of this pattern, find it here.

Stitches:  Ch, sl st, SC, DC

Yarn: 2 colors of worsted weight cotton, approx. 50 yards each
(I like Dishie but you can use whatever you like.)

Hook:  J/10

Sizes:  8” across from tip to tip

Gauge:  6 DC x 4 rows = 2”

Trivet In Bloom. Let's do it!

Pattern:

Flower

Ch 4, join with sl st to form a circle.

1) DC 12 inside the circle. Join. = 12 DC

2) 2 DC in each st around. Join. = 24 DC

3) *(DC, ch 1, DC) in next st, sk next st* around. Join. = 24 DC, 12 ch-1 sps

4) *(2 DC, ch 2, 2 DC) in next ch-1 sp, 2 SC in next ch-1 sp* around. Join. = 24 DC, 6 ch-2 sps, 12 SC

5) *8 DC in ch-2 sp, ch 2* around. Join. = 48 DC, 6 ch-2 sps

6) Sl st your way to the middle of the 8 DCs so that you are starting this round BETWEEN the 4th and 5th DC. *(DC, ch 1, DC) in sp between 4th and 5th st, ch 4, DC in each ch of the ch-2 sp, ch 4* around. Join. = 24 DC, 6 ch-1 sps, 12 ch-4 sps

7) *SC in DC, 3 SC in ch-1 sp, SC in next DC, 4 SC in ch-4 sp, SC2tog in the next two DC, 4 SC in ch-4 sp* around. Join. = 84 SC

Cut yarn. Weave in ends.

Now for the backing hexagon

Ch 4. Join to form a circle.

1) DC 12 inside the circle. Join. = 12 DC

2) 2 DC in each st around. Join. = 24 DC

3) *DC in next st, 2 DC in next st* around. Join. = 36 DC

4) 2 DC in first st, (DC in each of the next 5 sts, 3 DC in next st) 5 times, DC in each of the next 5 st, DC one more time in the same stitch as your first two DCs of this round. This puts 3 DC in that very first st. Join.  = 48 DC

5) 2 DC in first st, (DC in each of the next 7 sts, 3 DC in next st) 5 times, DC in each of the next 7 st, DC one more time in the same stitch as your first two DCs of this round. This puts 3 DC in that very first st.  Join. = 60 DC

6) 2 DC in first st, (DC in each of the next 9 sts, 3 DC in next st) 5 times, DC in each of the next 9 st, DC one more time in the same stitch as your first two DCs of this round. This puts 3 DC in that very first st.  Join. = 72 DC

7) 2 SC in first st, (SC in each of the next 11 sts, 3 SC in next st) 5 times, SC in each of the next 11 st, SC one more time in the same stitch as your first two SC of this round. This puts 3 SC in that very first st. Join.  = 84 SC 

DO NOT CUT YARN!

Time to assemble

Now you’re going to stack your flower piece on top of your backing piece, with both right sides facing up, NOT facing together. Line up the first st on each of these pieces. Remove your hook from the loop on the backing piece, insert it through the first st on the flower piece, grab that loop, and pull it through. 

Ch 1, SC through both pieces at the same time, all the way around, joining them together. Cut yarn, weave in ends.

Now for a little surface crochet, but only if you want!

Taking a new strand of the same color you used for your backing piece and holding it in back of your trivet, stick your hook through both trivet pieces together in the top of the VERY FIRST stitches you made, in the first round, and pull up a loop of yarn. Slip stitch around through the tops of all of your round 1 stitches, through both pieces, joining the centers together. When you get back around to your first stitch where you started, slip stitch into that one one more time, cut your yarn, and use a tapestry needle to pull the yarn through the first stitch to the back. Weave in ends.

And do it again if you want to, through the stitches in the second round! Do it all the same way, weave in your ends, and now the center of your trivet is connected together. This surface crochet used to join isn’t absolutely necessary, but it keeps the two pieces from flopping apart in the center.

SUNday FREE PATTERN!

FREE crochet pattern

Sunday Collage

SUNday is a cheerful sunny scarf, and just what we all need to hurry Spring on her way. Crocheted lace is one of my favorite springtime indulgences. This stitch pattern, worked on the bias, offers interest during crocheting and produces a naturally scalloped edge. Worked in WeCrochet’s Upcycle Alpaca, a drapey DK weight, the alpaca makes it nice and soft, while the silk and Tencel give it a gorgeous sheen. This one-skein scarf is a quick project, so why not make two and gift the second to a very special person in your life!

You can get a .pdf version of this pattern for just $1.99 on Ravelry. This makes it easily printable so you can take it with you, and it helps support me in the writing of even more patterns. Even if you don’t purchase the .pdf, please go rate it for me!
