It took approximately 1.5 Harry Potter Movies to make this, so this easy crochet basket should take about 3 hours. If you aren’t distracted by a movie, this probably will go a lot faster!

Final dimensions: 9 inches in diameter, 6 inches tall.

Fire Crochet Dishcloth

free pattern Add some dimension to the kitchen with this Fire Crochet Dishcloth. I saw a commercial for the new Hunger Games movie this November, and I just had to make something in honor of it. This uses Lily Cotton Yarn, so it will be very absorbent. Because of the raised up “arrows” that lead up to each corner, this crochet dishcloth is sure to catch fire to all stains and dirt in its path! (note: This is a common type of design. This is simply my version of an amazing type of crochet, and is not an “original” crochet stitch that I created). Final dimensions of project are approximately 8″x8″.

The crocodile stitch is a three dimensional stitch that is used with a variety of fibers to create blankets, hats, shoes, and more! Because of the cool design that it makes, I wanted to incorporate it into my current quest of making wall art (although I may just lean it next to my basket by the Keurig as a neat decoration).

2015-02-21 15.12.43 This stitch is great with multi-colored yarn or a solid color, so it can easily match everything while still standing out.
