Crochet Pattern: Bobble Berry Washcloth

Free crochet pattern: Bobble Berry Washcloth by Underground Crafter | CAL Central 2018 Washcloth Crocht AlongI’m kicking off CAL Central’s 2018 Washcloth Crochet Along with the Bobble Berry Washcloth, a free crochet pattern for a textured washcloth in the granny square style. This washcloth uses post stitches and bobbles to create a gentle, exfoliating texture. If you’re new to bobble and post stitches, I’ve included video tutorials after the pattern to walk you through these special stitches. This post is also part of Granny Square Month, my 30-day celebration of all things granny square.

When I first got the skein of Cascade Ultra Pima Paints in the mail, I knew that I was going to need some lavender soap as a photo prop.

Free crochet pattern: Bobble Berry Washcloth by Underground Crafter | CAL Central 2018 Washcloth Crocht AlongLavender by the Bay is a local, family owned and operated lavender farm that sells some amazing lavender scented goodness at my neighborhood Farmers Market every Sunday. I’m always looking for a reason that I need to have some lavender, and taking pictures seemed like a perfect reason. (If you love lavender, too, and also sew, you may like my Upcycled Denim Lavender Sachets tutorial.)

I actually tried a few different variations before settling on the stitch pattern for this washcloth. I really wanted something that had some texture, but I also wanted something that wasn’t too busy because the yarn has a lot going on and I didn’t want to over-complicate things.

Free crochet pattern: Bobble Berry Washcloth by Underground Crafter | CAL Central 2018 Washcloth Crocht AlongI decided to start with a wheel using front post double crochet stitches as the spokes. Then, I added in bobbles around the edges of the circle. Once I squared the circle, the bobbles were just added at the corners.

I love using face scrubbies in the summer to help remove the sweaty gunk that builds up on your face when you live through a New York City summer day!

Crochet Pattern: Double Irish Chain Granny Square Blanket

Free crochet pattern: Double Irish Chain Granny Square Blanket by Underground CrafterIf you love the look of classic quilt block patterns but prefer to crochet your blankets, today’s free crochet pattern is for you! The Double Irish Chain Granny Square Blanket (as the name suggests) uses granny squares to mimic the traditional double Irish chain quilt pattern. Get the instructions to make your own version today. This blanket fits a double bed and includes overhang on all four sides.

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase using these links.

Long time readers may remember this blanket, which I finished back in 2012 for my younger sister. At the time, she was living in New Orleans and wanted something in Saints colors. I didn’t think she’d end up there permanently, so I wanted to pick a classic pattern that could move with her somewhere else. (She’s in Houston now, by the way.) I always loved the look of the classic double Irish chain quilting pattern, and we all know I love granny squares, so after a little bit of measuring and sketching, the idea for this blanket was born.

Free crochet pattern: Double Irish Chain Granny Square Blanket by Underground CrafterThis is a beginner-friendly pattern, but due to the large size you will need plenty of patience. My one tip is don’t wait until the end to weave in all the ends. It’s much more manageable if you weave in the ends after you complete each square or as you join each section together.

Free crochet pattern: Double Irish Chain Granny Square Blanket by Underground CrafterI used Cascade 220 Superwash in 877 Golden as the CA for my version, along with a discontinued superwash wool yarn in cream and black. You can use any three colors of medium weight yarn for yours!

Crochet Pattern: Peacock Shell Triangular Scarf

Free crochet pattern: Peacock Shells Triangular Scarf free crochet pattern in Cascade Heritage Wave yarn by Underground Crafter (Scarf of the Month Club 2018)The Peacock Shell Triangular Scarf is made with a self-patterning sock yarn that does all the colorwork for you.

Free crochet pattern: Peacock Shells Triangular Scarf free crochet pattern in Cascade Heritage Wave yarn by Underground Crafter (Scarf of the Month Club 2018)I don’t want to give up my crochet when the warm weather comes, do you? That’s why I like to use sock yarns to create light accessories that I can use to layer against the air conditioning or when the temperatures dip at night.

Free crochet pattern: Peacock Shells Triangular Scarf free crochet pattern in Cascade Heritage Wave yarn by Underground Crafter (Scarf of the Month Club 2018)

I used Cascade Heritage Wave yarn, a super fine (also known as sock) weight yarn that is self-patterning. It makes its own gentle stripes so there are fewer ends to weave in at the end and you can wear your scarf right away.

Free crochet pattern: Peacock Shells Triangular Scarf free crochet pattern in Cascade Heritage Wave yarn by Underground Crafter (Scarf of the Month Club 2018)This project also makes a great gift! It’s thin enough to fold up and wrap cutely, even though it has a triangular shape. And if you’re shipping, it’s even better because it won’t take up much room in a box or padded envelope once you fold it.

This pattern is part of the Third Annual Scarf of the Month Club with The Stitchin’ Mommy and Oombawka Design.
