National Crochet Month

March is National Crochet Month! I'll be taking the opportunity to show my love of crochet all month long. There are many go-to websites, informative blogs, techniques, and patterns for those who love to crochet or for those who want to learn.

A great place to start is Crochet.About.com. For years Sandi Marshall posted classic stitches and patterns with tips for the beginners to the experts in crochet. Now, Amy Solovay is the Crochet Guide at About.com, continuing to provide fresh and inspiring ways to enhance your crochet repertoire.
If you want some ideas for an edging for a project or to find a flower pattern, About.com offers a great selection. New to crochet? About.com offers step-by-step tutorials and how-to videos.
A great way to start is by making a dish cloth. Kitchen cotton is readily available and there are many crochet dishcloth patterns to choose from.

Here is my favorite stitch or pattern for dischloths from Crochet 'N' More. Dishcloths work up quickly and make great gifts.
I'll be celebrating National Crochet Month with more patterns, websites, and design inspirations. Feel free to share some of your crochet favorites!

Thank you for this pattern! I'm a novice at crochet but I managed to make this fairly quick. Easy to follow instructions. Can't wait to get more yarn to do another one!
