I had some cotton yarn left from a previous project and was looking for something suitable to make and came across a pattern for an owl dishcloth. I AM IN LOVE! I might have to make myself an entire blanket out of a bunch of these.
I also found a pattern for an Octopus dishcloth. Octopus and dishcloth… it oddly enough seems like a perfect combo.
And finally, I asked hubby what kind of dishcloth he’d love. A moose. Talk about random. Picture is awful, the colors are actually a nice baby blue, navy blue and lime green. I would take a better picture except that it’s already in use now. The original plan was to do both borders in baby blue and the center in lime green. Of course I ran out of lime green half way through and then ended up running out of baby blue as well and had to bring in a 3rd color but since the goal was to use up scraps, it’s only fitting.
All 3 patterns are by Mamafri/CreaWelten on Ravelry. Patterns are in German.
I have just enough yarn left to do a navy blue/beige one and I think we’ll do the shark one.
Also happy news – I won a SIGNED copy of “Seven Wonders: The Colossus Rises” by Peter Lerangis. I won it through HarperCollins Canada (contest on FB). Books always make me happy. Signed books make me bounce up and down.
Boo is also known as the “Tiny yellow buffalo” as she’s very much built like one – Giant hairy shoulders, wee tiny waist.
Needless to say, I HAD to make her a buffalo hat. HAD TO.
She’s thrilled with it and so am I 😀
Main part is the same like in the Queen Hat, I just added horns instead of a crown and braids.
Worsted weight yarn (horn color)
4 mm crochet hook
Material to stuff the horns (I used the extra yarn I cut off when I made the braids for her Queen hat, nothing gets wasted here :D)
Magic loop, 4 sc into loop (4 st)
2 sc in each st (8 st)
1 sc in each st (8 st)
1 sc in each st (8 st)
2 sc in first two st, 1 sc in rest of st (10 st)
1 sc in each st (10 st)
Repeat rows 5 and 6 until you’ve reached the desired length, end off but leave a strand long enough to sew onto hat… weave in beginning end, stuff horn, sew to main part, weave in end.
Again, if you’re going to crochet a hat, please consider making a donation to Boo’s rescue (they spent well over $2500 for her care thus far): Bully Buddies. Thank you!
I have visions of Easter bunny hat, unicorn hat and pig hat (she’s also known as “Trufflepig”) but that will have to wait as I’m about 2/3 done now with my Manta Hueco Zig Zag blanket and hope to finish it within the next two weeks.
