1. Three-Piece Scrubbie Towel Set
This set comes with a dish towel, scrubbie and towel pattern for all your kitchen cleaning and drying. The scrubbie is much more eco-friendly than a sponge since you can wash it and use it again and again, and having a matching set will make your kitchen look neat and coordinated.

6. Hot Cocoa Mug Ornamentp>Most people have the same magnets on their fridge for decades. When I spotted this little mug ornament, I immediately saw it as a cute magnet. All you’d have to do is glue a store-bought magnet to the back. These would also be fun as a garland you can hang in your kitchen. So many possibilities!

8. Cross-Stitched Cloths Kit
Embroidered details make these dishcloths look intricate, but the bulk of the cloth is stitched in simple double crochet stitches. Once you’ve made the cloth, you can create any cross-stitch design you want. This crochet kit comes with eight bright skeins for the embroidery — the possibilities are endless!

9. Crochet Towel Holder Pattern
Tired of your towels slipping off handles and onto the floor? This crochet towel holder solves that problem! The texture of the yarn against the towel’s cloth keeps it from slipping and sliding. Work this up with a bit of scrap yarn in a color that complements your kitchen for an instant dose of adorable style.

10. Bread Basket
Who said bread baskets have to be made of wicker? This crochet version, when lined with a paper or cloth napkins, is a perfect handmade substitute. Don’t have fresh bread? You could also use it to hold fruit or any other kitchen necessity.

12. Owl Apple Cozy
If you love crochet owl patterns as much as we do, you’ll want to whip up this apple cozy as soon as possible! Keep your apples from bruising by protecting them with these owl cozies. You can even use stash yarn, and if you don’t have buttons for the eyes, try embroidering them on.

13. Double Thick Potholder
Crochet potholders can be risky — if you have a loose tension or use a big, open stitch, it won’t do much good in protecting you from hot pans and dishes. That’s why this double-thick option is great! But it’s not two layers of fabric (that can be less-than-sturdy). Be sure to use a cotton or wool yarn — acrylic will melt!
