Heart dishcloths

Oh my, it's such a gloomy, rainy day.  I'm so ready for warmer weather and sunny days.  Since I'm stuck inside, I'm spending the afternoon with crochet, audio books, hot chocolate, and a dog snuggled on my lap.  Being lazy on a Saturday feels pretty good.



Currently I'm listening to Lying in Wait by J. A. Jance.  I love audio books and download them from audible.com and the library.  Lately I've been devouring books by Jance and Anne Perry.  I'm partial to mystery.  With my name, I'd better.  However, I loved mystery long before I got the name through marriage.

These are my crocheted heart dishcloths from the pattern that I released yesterday.  I'm getting a wonderful response on that pattern.  I can imagine all the colorful hearts being crocheted this month.  If you missed the pattern, you can find it on my January 31, 2014 post.  

My original coaster hearts were made with DK weight yarn, but for these dishcloths, I used worsted weight cotton and a 6 mm hook.  I also added an extra row of sc color to increase the size a little. On the additional row, I increased each side of the heart by 4 stitches following the same stitch pattern as the other sc rows.

Have a blessed day!
