Granny Square Dishcloth and Tea

Sent this to my partner for the March 2009 exchange:

She likes burgandy and I have never seen cotton yarn for dishcloths in burgandy. Since funds are limited due to me not working right now I had to find something to match burgandy.
I also added some tea. I love tea. I wanted to share it with someone!

Crochet Kitty Cozy #2

Here is the finished Kitty Cozy according to the pattern instructions. I am adding a few more rows to the sides (so my fur baby will climb in it).

These are another couple pictures ... she knew this item was for her.

Crochet Kitty Cozy

So, do you remember two posts ago where I said I was starting a recycled bag pattern? It is still on hold.

And do you remember how I said I wanted to finish the Voodoo Rug that is in progress? It is on hold too.

One reason is that I wrote up and posted the Soap Pocket pattern. But that is done. So what is the other excuse?

Well, I like to do small projects. Things that don't take forever to complete. I need instant gratification. And cutting up all those bags and rolling them up just doesn't sound appealing right now.

So, even though this next project is not really "small" ~more like "medium"~ I want to do it.

This is the pattern: Crochet Kitty Cozy.

I have a bed for my kitty now. But she doesn't sleep in it. But she always wants to curl up in my crocheting stuff. So I figured, if I make her something she will probably lay in it. She always likes to climb into EVERYTHING. I will probably make the sides a little higher since she likes that.

Here are a couple of pictures of my pretty prissy princess.

Soap Pockets©

Here is my version!

H hook
Worsted weight cotton yarn (here I used Peaches & Cream Potpourri)

Chain 26.

Row 1: sk 1st ch, sc across (25 st).

Row 2: ch 1, sc in each front loop across, turn (25 st).

Row 3-22: Repeat row 2.

Finish off.

Sc around 2 sides to make a pocket. When you reach the end of the second side, ch approximately 65-70 st, depending on how long you want the loop to be. Leave a long tail to pick up at the end.

Weave the ch through the open spaces of the top row that is open. attach the ch row to the corner of the pocket. Fasten off.

To use, put soap in the pocket and pull the opening closed.
