Top 5 Crochet Styles 4U Patterns

In case you missed it I’m bringing you my Top 5 crochet patterns since I began crocheting.  I’ve always admired other crocheting patterns and ventured out on designing my very own Crochet Styles 4U patterns.  Designing a pattern is not always easy because I always get caught up in other patterns that I see online.  As of today I have over 1000 patterns saved in my Ravelry library. How many patterns do you have saved?  I know I’m not the only one with a massive crochet library, lol.

Criss Cross Dishcloth

Whew, it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged.  This pattern was written awhile back and I had every intentions on getting it posted.  But instead I carried it in my bag for months, smh.  Again, I like simplicity and this turned out to be a very quick dishcloth to make.

Now let’s get down to business and do some crocheting.  Depending on your speed it should take between 30-60 minutes.  You can knock this out while watching your favorite show.
