Beautiful Crochet Flowers

One of my favorite things to crochet are flowers.  The make the perfect embellishment to almost anything, especially hats! They are simple for beginners and I have found that my daughter loves to experiment with bright colors and making all shapes and sizes of flowers.  She has been attaching them to barrettes, headband, and even tote bags. They are also a great way to use up some of those lonely buttons that have just been sitting around in that button jar waiting for a place to go! Find the most beautiful crochet flower patterns.

Keep warm with these stylish crochet hat patterns.  Hat make great handmade gifts because they are useful and a special way to wrap the recipient in love!  They also make a great project for charity gifts.  I had fun making some cute hats for my nieces this year using their collegiate colors.  They loved having something warm (and cute!) to wear as they headed off to cold football games.

Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

Talk about a quick and easy crochet gift, the dishcloth.  Be aware–once you give this as a gift, you will be asked for more!  Wrap it up with some lovely soap for a useful handmade gift that is sure to be appreciated!  It can make a great gift for a teacher, or a wonderful “thank you” gift to show your appreciation for someone’s hospitality.  I like to have a stack of these already made, and ready to give, for when I need that quick gift.

I love this red crochet dishcloth pattern. The stitch is easy and makes a nice scalloped border without having to crochet around the edge.

What fun, crochet dish sponges. They are a great twist on the crochet dishcloth and they work great!

Take your crochet dishcloth up a notch and make a crochet granny square dishcloth.
