April Showers Dish Cloths
Free Crochet Pattern
I don’t know what Spring looks like where you live, but here in Minnesota spring has looked like a whole lot of snow so far. Not quite the April Showers that bring May Flowers we were all promised in that nursery rhyme long ago… Despite the unseasonable weather, I wanted to design a pattern called April Showers for this month, just for fun. I am so excited to bring you another functional Free Crochet Pattern that just happens to fit the bill. I hope you enjoy making the April Showers Dish Cloths as much as I enjoyed designing them!
The April Showers Pattern started off quite differently in my head. I still have the original idea tucked away for a Rainy Day, (I know – so punny!!) but it wasn’t coming together quite as I had envisioned it in my mind. I made a bunch of round dish cloths a while back, without a pattern, just because we needed some new ones. The stitch pattern on one of them caught my eye and made me think of a sun and sun rays, and so this new idea crept in. 🙂

Learn to Crochet Series
Congratulations! You are about to learn a stitch beyond the basic stitches in your Learn to Crochet Journey – the Treble Crochet Stitch! Now that you’ve got that half double crochet stitch and that double crochet stitch down, you are ready to ace the Treble Crochet! I think it goes without say that with the Treble Crochet you can crochet even bigger and faster, and create some really interesting projects with just 2 additional steps beyond the double crochet. High five! Read on to follow my easy photo and video tutorials for the Treble Crochet Stitch!
The Learn to Crochet Series was designed to help you learn to crochet the same way I did! Since I was already a busy mom when I learned to crochet, I found it easiest to learn with the help of well written beginner patterns, YouTube videos (like those you will find below!), and beginner stitch books. There are some fantastic programs out there to teach you to crochet, but it was hard for me to find the time and babysitter needed to attend a formal class. So for me, I preferred the “self taught” method.
Other benefits to the self taught method include cost savings, lower pressure, and the ability to learn at your own pace, and in your own time. Crochet is a wonderful creative outlet! I’m not kidding when I say that once I learned to crochet, I never wanted to stop (and I haven’t since)! 🙂 I hope you find as much joy in crochet as I do, but if you don’t, learning this way is the lowest commitment level, and maybe another craft is your jam instead! So, let’s get started and find out!
