Zelda, you continue to amaze me! I love how different they look depending on the colors you used (fantastic, by the way). As much as I want to make 50 different ones, I'll probably end up repeating a couple of patterns. Like the Face Cloth and the Bark Sedge and the Granny Wink

Oh, and on the striped Face Cloths, did you carry the yarn across? And how many chains did you start with to make it bigger? Thanks!

Numbers 6 & 7!

This is the Bark Sedge in Sn'C Summer Sky. I just love it! It is a bit wonky, though. I crochet on the tight side, and one turning chain at the end of each row just wasn't enough. So, I added a second one, and it worked out better...

This is the Face Cloth, and I can't believe how easy it was! It only took me about an hour to make it. I'll be making many more of these once I'm done with my 50. It's a bit small, so I may make future ones bigger. I used Sn'C Shades of Green and it started out with a cool pattern (sadly, no DNA), but shortly after I noticed the pattern, it shifted and the effect was lost- I may have skipped a stitch or two, or loosened/tightened my tension. Wouldn't surprise me...

ETA: After I posted, I realized that I could see DNA in the Face Cloth- the angle of the photo makes it look more apparent...gotta love science Wink

inkberry, I really like the Pink Shells cloth! I think I'm adding it to my list of the ones I'll be doing. I really want to try to make 50 different ones...

Of course, thanks to CraftADDchick, I now see partial strands of DNA every time I crochet something!! Cheesy

Ha! And I do see it in the one you just posted Wink

I actually have 2 more practically done- I just need to weave in the ends. I'm going to go and do that now and then I can post pics.

I'm so glad that the tutorial worked for you! And, I know what you mean about the tabs- the tabs on the bag I used as a model were a bit small, so I enlarged them...only I enlarged them too much Wink Next time I make one I'll make them smaller.

And, I think fabric handles should work just fine, especially since you top-stitched them!

Folding the top edges down first is probably a good idea- I realized after I had it the pieces stitched together that I'd have to hem them. Would have been easier if I had done it first!

Thanks for sharing your changes, and if you ever do get a picture, I'd love to see it!

Very, very cute! And, thanks for posting the pattern link. I like the modifications that you made because it makes it look more finished (although I don't get what ch st 4 means...how it works, really).

Sorry about the fuzzy directions.  Basically after you finish the body you slip stitch into the first chain stitch at the bottom of the body (the first ch st of the project).  Chain 4 then single stitch into the next chain stitch on the body (repeat until you get all the way back to the first chain stitch).  Slipstitch into the first chain stitch on the body.  Finish off by tucking in the loose yarn. 

Does that make sense?

I just tried to quickly explain and did a poor job, LOL.

It makes perfect sense! I thought it might be something like that, but I wasn't sure if there was a new technique I needed to learn. Thanks for explaining Wink

Very cute! I'll have to make one of these soon! And, a blank one would be a lot of fun as well. Thanks for sharing it!

Dragon*Fly, your dishcloths came out great! I like the Twists yarn you used, too. I haven't seen that color yet. I also like how the pattern came out with the Landscape yarn- kind of looks like part of a DNA strand Wink

I was able to work on one yesterday (Bark Sedge) while waiting for perpetually late friends. I was prepared, so I sat in in the car in the parking lot of a restaurant and crocheted until they arrived. And, I should be able to do some more tomorrow- I have a meeting that ends at 2:30 and then I have to tutor at 4:00. So, I have a chunk of time to...sit in the car in the parking lot and crochet!

I'm so glad that more folks have joined in! But, I still might get left in the dust Wink

I love the DNA bag! It's beautifully subtle- it's totally geeky, but only to those in the know, and it is so pretty! The needle roll is also fabulous! The package was definitely worth the wait!

Thanks! The pattern is just great! And, I love how they each have little personalities when their eyes and nose/mouth get added, and then even more personality when the ears get stitched on. It's almost a shame to knock them over Wink
