Checked Edge Washcloth Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

  Checked Edge Washcloth 
Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs



The Checked Edge Washcloth is another Crochet Pattern
 in my Cotton Yarn Series. It's a lovely simple pattern that is
 wonderful for everyday use, and also makes great gifts.

It's a great way to use up some cotton yarns, and mix
 and match the yarn colors to make something beautiful. 


I designed it using 2 colors but you can use 3 or more.
I used Peaches and Cream cotton yarn from my yarn stash
 and I really love the sweet look of the washcloth.
It looks a little complicated but once you get going on
 it, you will see it's not really complicated at all.
You will want to stitch a bunch of them.

COFFEE AND CROCHET PODCAST -What Is Yarn Ply? And More Happy Mail | Posh Pooch Designs

COFFEE AND CROCHET PODCAST 
What Is Yarn Ply? And More Happy Mail
 With Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs



I received a lovely House Warming Gift from
A Yarnie Friend - Dawn Tenneson

Thank You So Much!


2 Super thick hot pads that Match the house warming gift
 I received last week. And A really sweet card.
I love Them. My New Kitchen will look so pretty!

☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕☕

Today's Question - What is Yarn Ply?

Ply means layers, as in Bathroom tissue may
 be 2 or 3 play or layers.

 For Yarn is means strands spun or wound together
 to form the thickness of the yarn.


It used to be we totally relied on the ply for the
 thickness of the yarn, but not anymore.
Keep In mind a thick yarn can
 have less strands and a thinner yarn have more,
 because it depends on the
 thickness of the original strands.

Kaboom, The Firework Stuffie 
Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

**********************************
**********************************


Kaboom, The Firework Stuffie  is a cute little
 stuffed plush toy that resembles
 a firecracker or rocket.
It has a silly face and is super fun to play with, 
as well as, decorate your house with.
They are safe and quiet fireworks the
 kids, and adults, will love to play with.

I put mine in my Patriotic Wreath
 on my door.

I designed the toy in Patriotic Colors, because I 
was thinking, 4th of July, but you can stitch it up
 in any colors of your choosing. It measures about 12 tall
 and is the perfect size to toss around the room, 
and not break any thing.

Bumpy Soap Bag Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Bumpy Soap Bag 
Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs



This is another Pattern In our 
Cotton Crochet Pattern Series.
 The Bumpy Soap Bag Combines a Soap Bag 
and Body Scrubby into one.

Just put Your favorite bar of soap in the bag, and 
scrub yourself clean. It's soft enough to use on your
 face, but strong enough for the rest of you.
Regular size bath bars fit perfectly in the soap bag.
Once the bar is used up, toss the bag in the wash 
with your towels.



It's also a great way to use up some of your left over
 cotton yarns from other projects. They make great gifts
 paired with some lovely washcloths and towels.
