Rampenisse/Gnome/Tomte Hat | Crochet Pattern

Optional ribbon can be added for that Scandinavian flair,

 And a removable nose.

 
 With eye openings and a nose                                          and without either...  
   


See the naughty rampenisse; he is eating the "Firklover" without removing the wrapper!?!?!

Mitered Blossom Dishcloth | Crochet Pattern Listed!

The Mitered Dishcloth Crochet Pattern is now listed!
and can be found at the
Apple Blossom Dreams
Etsy shop by clicking here.
or
USA buyers may also purchase the pattern from the
Apple Blossom Dreams Collection
on
 Felted Button by clicking here.
And that's especially cool because you'll receive 25% off one pattern using the code:
 GRANDOPEN25
And that's double especially cool because Felted Button has
the most awesome collection of patterns and information ever!

I love these dishcloths for holiday gift giving.

These Mitered Blossom Dishcloths are so fun to make, keep and to gift. 
The pattern includes dozens upon dozens of step-by-step photos, as well as a shortened version 
AND four video links for extra added assistance. 
Once you make a few for yourself you will likely find your friends and family requesting them. 

The really great thing about using these as a dishcloth is that, after use,

 simply rinse and wring them thoroughly
 then hang them from a hook by the sink or from the faucet
 with that convenient handle; 
a drying technique keeps them smelling fresh and resisting germs.

These were crocheted in Scheepjes Catona yarn.
Clicking here will direct you to where you can purchase this beautiful yarn
that comes in every color imaginable. 
This yarn keeps its color longer than any other yarn I have used for dishcloths in the past.

These dishcloths have been a real hit among those that have received them as gifts,

 especially with the added thoughtfulness of coordinating the colors with the recipients kitchen,
 or paired with a bar soap or liquid soap. 

This has been the most fun I've had writing a pattern!
It filled the "Koselig Hekler Hus" with lots of
Warmly,
