Easy and Quick Mother's Day Gift

Easy 20 minute Mother's Day Gift!




free crochet pattern

Oh and did I mention it is also inexpensive.

Time is of the essence in my household. I just recently relocated and have spent the last month moving, unpacking and getting my family settled into their new surroundings.

With Mother's Day just around the corner I needed a super quick and easy idea that didn't break the bank. For one gift I made a jute owl basket and filled it with dishcloths and pot scrubbers.



I wanted to add a little something more. So I decided to make a jute pot holder with the left over jute twine I had purchased from the local dollar store.

Here is what I came up with;


Quick and Easy Jute Pot Holder Pattern;


free crochet pattern

Materials you will need are;

*crochet hook K (6.5mm)
*yarn needle
*scissors
*jute twine (I found mine at dollarama)

You will Need;
To start begin with a magic ring;

Round 1: Chain 4 ( this counts as a double crochet plus chain 1 -2sts-)
*Double crochet 1, then chain 1* repeat directions between the * for a total of 9 times. Join with a slip stitch to the third chain at beginning. 20 sts

Round 2: Chain 1, turn work. Single crochet in chain space and at the top of every double crochet all the way around including the beginning chain from round 1. 20 sts

Round 3: Chain 3, turn work. *double crochet 1, chain 1* repeat directions between the * for a total of 20 times. Join with a slip stitch. 41 sts

Round 4: Chain 1, turn work. Single crochet in each chain space and in the top of every double crochet. Join with a slip stitch. 41 sts *****It is very important that you end this round with 41 stitches so that your next round will work out nicely. *****

Round 5: *Skip 1 stitch, then double crochet 5 stitches into the next stitch, skip the next stitch, then slip stitch into the next stitch* repeat the directions between the * for a total of 10 times. the last slip stitch will go into the first stitch at the start of the round. Fasten off and weave in ends.

And there you have it a quick and easy jute pot holder for Mother's Day.

You can add this pot holder into a gift basket or make a few and give them as a set.

I would love to see any creations you came up with by tagging me on Instagram @ the_apple_tree_crochet

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

Too Cute Washcloth and Scrubby All-In-One

Crochet Scrubby - Free Pattern

Crocheted washcloths are a timeless piece. 
I remember my grandmother making washcloths by the dozen. As soon as she would get one made, someone would come along and scoop it up. 
I myself, have made many different washcloths and scrubbies and have never been left with one to spare. 
I was wandering through the yarn isles at Michaels the other day (always a dangerous idea), when I spotted scrubby yarn. 



I stopped dead in my tracks and did a double take. WHAT?! Scrubby yarn! YES PLEASE!

I had no idea what I was going to do with the scrubby yarn, but I NEEDED it! 
Later that evening, I was trying to decide what kind of scrubby I wanted to make with my new scrubby yarn.
 I like using scrubbies for tough to wash dishes and washcloths for the rest. Too bad I couldn't get an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo...…..Wait  a minute, I'm the maker, I can make an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo. 


For my all-in-one washcloth and scrubby design I …

Crochet Chair Socks Free Pattern

How to Crochet Chair Socks, Free Pattern I am excited and a little nervous to be writing this blog post. I have wanted to blog and share my patterns and newly learned knowledge for crocheting for the longest time now,but the idea was kind of overwhelming for me. Where do I start? What do I write about? Will people like it? Will it be useful if there is already information exactly like it on the world wide web?

Ugh! So much overthinking!

No more overthinking for this gal.....okay I will probably still think about it way to much and for the first few posts I will probably write something and delete it 100 times, but at least I am doing it.

I will be posting about current projects, interesting information that I have gathered through various sources and products that I have tried and liked or not liked.

One of the many projects that I currently have on the go is......you guessed it. Chair Socks. A friend messaged me a picture of some chair socks that her cousin saw and liked and asked i…

Custom Fabric Labels for Crochet and Knit Items of Any Kind

Where'd you get those labels from?  For me, the final touches are just as important as creating the piece or project. For a while after I started selling my crochet and knit pieces, I wanted to find the perfect label. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted other then something that would make the piece look finished and professional. Something that told people that I, The Apple Tree Crochet, made that item. Something that tells people that I take pride in what I create because I put my name on it.

So the search to find the perfect label began. Wooden or leather labels came to mind first because that is what I was seeing everywhere on social media and it also seemed to be my only choice for knit or crochet pieces. I spent countless nights mulling over my options but none of them seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.  Eventually, I settled on ordering custom wooden labels.


These labels were very nice, but not really what I was looking for. I wasn't able to fit my full …
