Crocheting for PTO Fundraiser Finally Finished!

I'm not usually the kind of person who waits until the last minute to get things done, but I cut it a little close for my donation to the high school PTO silent auction for this Friday evening. I finally finished the woven hot pads to go along with the dish cloths I made last week, and I delivered them to school. Whew! One more thing checked off my list!

Blues and Greens Tunisian Short Row dishcloths and woven hotpadHere is one set for the kitchen basket. I love this color combination. It's Lily Sugar 'n Cream Country Side Ombre along with Sage Green.

Green Stripes Tunisian Short Row dishcloths and woven hotpadAnd here is the other set for the kitchen basket. It is made with the same Sage Green along with Green Twists. These are the same dishcloths I showed the other day. In that same post I also showed a yellow and white Tunisian Short Row cloth that was paired up with the Yellow Duck wash cloth for the New Baby Basket at the auction.

The denim blue cloth and one of my Super Easy Knitted cloths were paired up for the Bed and Bath basket.

If you like the looks of these cloths, make sure you sign up for my 300th Post Giveaway. You could win a set of 4 in the color of your choice!

Happy Stitching!

  • Hi Juanita and thanks for writing! The woven hot pad pattern is from Ravelry and it's free. Here's the link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/weaved-hotpad

    The round-ish cloths are tunisian crochet using the short row technique and I posted a video tutorial on how to make it which you can find here: http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2009/02/tunisian-short-row-dishcloth-video.html

    Be sure to read the post and if you need to learn how to do tunisian crochet, there is a link in the paragraph just before the video to my tutorial on the basic tunisian knit stitch.

    Also keep in mind that you can begin this pattern with any number of starting chains depending on how large you want your finished cloth. Try different numbers of beginning chains to see what you like best.

    Have fun!
