I get crochet ideas from books, Pinterest, and YouTube. I have made several crochet projects in the past few months that I found on social media, such as crocheted cotton washcloths and facial scrubbies. I make a lot of granny square afghans, baby afghans, and lap afghans, and scarves from yarn.
When I was little, my paternal grandmother, Elvina Yorgensen, taught me to crochet chains. I made a lot of them. My maternal grandmother, taught me to make granny squares. For years, that was all I could do in the world of crochet. I have learned how to do more by watching videos online.
I have been crocheting granny square afghans and ripple afghans for many years, most of which are made with acrylic yarn.
I learned about cotton yarn so I bought some when Michael's was having a 99 cent sale. I have been making washcloths with it.
One of my next crochet projects is to make kitchen scrubbies and dishcloths. At the Christmas show where I was a vendor today, a lady asked me if I had any. She said they are made with a textured yarn that cleans pots and pans well. Tulle is the ingredient in the yarn that makes it good for scrubbing. I looked this up online and found that there are several varieties of this type of yarn. I will visit some stores where I buy yarn and see if I can find some and give it a try.Update:
I bought some scrubby yarn. It is very hard to work with because of the "scrubby stuff" on the yarn. It makes it difficult to see where the next stitch goes. See the photo below.
