Accessorize Your Kitchen
Miki Wilkins, a Crochet Crowd fan from Australia has developed a fabulous free pattern. She calls it the Double Cross Stitch Pot Holder. Miki wrote this pattern in honour of her mother in-law, Margaret. In the effort of playing around with different stitches, she developed this pattern to double up on the yarn to provide more padding between between the bottom of the pot and the table surface.
Pattern includes detailed instructions and everything you need to be successful.

Easy Dish Cloth
This is a very simple easy dish cloth to follow. It's using only Half Double Crochet and Single Crochet. I opted to use a smaller than recommended hook size for this yarn to make the stitches tighter and this cloth more longer lasting.
- 4.5 mm or Size G Crochet Hook
- 1 Skien of Bernat Handicrafter 340g ball of Aquarius and Pale Yellow. I recommend the larger size skiens that you can find at Wal-Mart. You will be able to do more clothes and it's cheaper to buy the larger balls.

Bump & Scrub Dish Cloth
Easy simple dish cloth using double crochet and slip stitching to create scrubbing bumpss. This version has a hanger loop to allow your cloth to hang and dry quicker. The hanger is definitely optional.
- Size 4.5 mm or G size Crochet Hook
- 1 Skien of Bernat Handicrafter in Aquarius and Yellow. Make your yarn go farther by purchasing the larger 340 g size balls. You will be able to do many cloths with just these two balls of yarn.
- You can make larger dish clothes by simply adding more chains at the start and adding more rows. Chains must be counts in sets of 2 in order to maintain the pattern.
- This stitch formation causes raised bumps which is great for scrubbing dishes.
