Yesterday I taught you the foundation chain. Today I will teach you the Single Crochet(sc) stitch. The single crochet is a basic stitch that creates a fabric that does not have a lot of holes. Each row should look straight, flat, and dense. A great building block to other, more elaborate crochet stitches.

This pattern is for a Reversible Dish Mat. It will finish as a thick material to hold lots of water! I used approximately 375 grams of Peaches & Creme Cotton Yarn. This cotton is great for water absorbtion.
Some of us do not have dishwashers, or prefer to allow their dishes to air dry. This will finish up to be an approximately 18 1/2 inches x 13 inches reversible dish mat. Use it to replace that dirty old dish tray under your dish rack, or all on it's own.

My husband never stops amazing me with his wood projects. This funky, colourful Mushroom can house multiple bird nests, while adding a conversation piece to the yard. He built it, and the children and I painted it. So many hours of creativety.
This Mushroom has 14 holes, that lead to 14 completely seperated, private bird homes.
