2016 was a busy year for me here at Home made hats. I was a contributor to the Designer's Potpourri Crochet A-Long, bringing group members 6 new unpublished patterns; I submitted several patterns to All Free Crochet and some of them were picked up by them. Here are the most clicked patterns by Home made hats in 2016.
#1. The first pattern is the 8 inch Berry Stitch Washcloth/Afghan Block. I created this in 2015, and I have had an overwhelming response to it. I used a #4 weight cotton for my block. It works up nicely in acrylic as well. You can find the pattern here. Berry Stitch Washcloth
