A Simple Set

Yesterday I released these washcloth and soap saver sets on my Etsy shop, as well as the free patterns for each in my Ribblr Shop.

Today I have also listed the PDF patterns for free download on my Ko-Fi shop: Washcloth pattern and Soap saver pattern.

The washcloth is knit and measures 8 inches by 8 inches. The soap saver is crocheted and measures 6 inches total length, 4.5 inches inner length where the soap goes, and 6.5 inches around. It’s even large enough to fit my 8 ounce brand new bar of soap with a small bit of work.

The best part about these is that you can make them in any 100% cotton yarn you choose. These samples in particular are made in Premiere Yarns Just Cotton which is available exclusively through Dollar Tree. I have also made the washcloths in Lily and Cream and Peaches and Cream yarns.

Ribbling Mitts

Don’t know how I missed it, but I have recently discovered Ribblr, a crochet, knitting, sewing and Tunisian crochet crafting platform with a new form of interactive e-pattern that translates, highlights, and lets you mark off your progress. I’ve already transferred two of my patterns into e-patterns on Ribblr, which you can find in my Ribblr shop.

In my exploring around this new platform, I came across a very cool pair of gloves made in Tunisian crochet. I had never seen Tunisian crochet used for anything other than a blanket, so I immediately set about finding a yarn to create the gloves.

This pattern is Perfect Fingerless Gloves by Hayley Joanne Robinson. It’s currently free at the time of this posting.

A pair of blue Tunisian crocheted gloves lay on a laptop keyboard. One is dark blue with a light blue thumb and the other is light blue with a dark blue thumb.

I had two colors of Knit Picks Comfy yarn that complemented each other, but neither were enough to make a full pair. So I decided instead to make each glove in one of the colors and add the other color in for the thumb so it’s a coordinating pair.

The only modifications I made were the color change in the thumbs and slip stitching the seams instead of sewing them.

I’d say this pattern is great if you are looking to learn more Tunisian crochet. It was super easy to follow and perfect for a beginner.

I know a lot of us are not using Ravelry right now, so if you are looking for a new way to buy or sell patterns, go check out Ribblr. Their pattern editor is super easy to use, so it might even be an easier way to start designing and selling patterns if you have been intimidated by figuring out how to write patterns.
