Crochet: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This is just what the name suggests - an easy dishcloth pattern ideal for beginners. You need to make chain stitches & single crochet stitches, and that’s it! It’s very easy to make the dishcloth wider & longer, and turn it into a towel.

This is an easy, crocheted dishcloth worked in the round. It’s one of those gauge-doesn’t-matter type of projects, so your finished size will vary. Originally published on my old blog years ago.
Crochet: Bathroom
A simple toliet paper cover, made completely in the round. Two versions available in one pdf: the Simple, no frills version finished off with a simple sc border, and the frilly shell stitch border. Will take about an hour to an hour and a half to make up & it’s perfect stash buster, taking only 1-1.5 ounces of worsted weight yarn.
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl was designed to use up every inch of a bulky, handspun yarn. It’s written to use up a very small amount of handspun yarn - I used 22 yards for the small version, and approximately 40 yards were used for the large version.
Crochet: Drawstring Bag
I created this as a reuseable gift bag. In this day of being green, not only is a reuseable gift bag - but the bag itself is also a gift! It’s quick, fast, very easy, great for beginners to make, & is very, very easy to adjust the size - just start with a different size starting chain in multiples of 2.
