    1. Nope. It's two squares together. The thickness and cotton is the "batting".

    1. Yes. I used the Peaches n Cream cotton yarn. Never use acrylic, it can melt!

  6. I have recently gotten this pattern and used it quite a number of times. It is a fast, easy pattern and does provide an ample thickness. The only difference is I put a scalloped edge on mine. Probably the best pot holder pattern I've had.

  7. Hi Shelly. This is such a cute pattern. I made 2 sets but I was wondering if you have ever made just one (not the 2 specified for a pot holder) and used it for a dish cloth? It might not stretch out of shape if I tried a crab stitch border. What do you think?

  8. I made several of these potholders as gifts and they are great. I just finished making an afghan with this stitch pattern and it looks super. Thanks for the pattern.

  9. I have done 5-6 rows and my edges are curving up. Is this how it is supposed to be or am I doing something wrong? Thank you!

    1. What do you mean curving? Like the edge is curving to where the rows are shorter or the sides are just curling in? Would need to see a photo to see what you did. Send to missed.stitches@yahoo.com

  15. I am a new crocheter. This pattern looks a lot easier than the stitch I am using for a dishcloth. Do you think I could us this stitch to make a dishcloth. I am using a wave stitch to make a dishcloth but it can be very confusing. I have not got vety far with it because I have to keep taking it out to redo it. Getting a little frustrated and I just put it down.

  16. It works up so quickly and is so pretty!

  17. I love this pattern for potholders...I have many of these for gifts. But I do mine a little different. Instead of making two potholders and attaching them together, I crochet with two strands of yarn. It works really well and I can make a potholder in half the time. :-)

A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.


There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket.







I'm not perfect at making crochet patterns but I hope all the information any crocheter would need is in here!

Hook Size: H8 Gauge: 1” across cluster Measures: 32” wide by 34"-36” long (sizes vary by crafter) Supplies: 2 skeins each of three contrasting yarns. I used one of my favorite brands of yarn- Caron Simply Soft in Soft BlueRoyal Blue and Off White.
Instructions: Ch 122
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and across
Row 2: ch 1, *(sc, ch 2, 4 dc) all in next sc, sk next 3 sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc
Row 3…

Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

This lacy crochet blanket made of rows of tilted clusters is perfect for your next stashbuster project! The lacy spacing between the crochet stitches goes great in Summer for your little one!

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!










Supplies: Hook Size: 5.00mm 1.5 skeins each of pink, green and cream I used Bernat Satin Yarn in Fern and Flamingo mixed with Caron Simply Soft Off-White
Sizing information: Gauge: 1 pattern repeat = 3" Finished Size: 27" x 32" Skill: Beginner/Intermediate
