Crochet Pattern: Rosalind Scarf

By Candace – August 23rd, 2016 Be the first to comment
Don’t let the holes fool you. You can be warm and snug with a thick, lacy scarf. The combination of bulky yarn, a thick afghan hook, and Tunisian crochet makes for a scarf that is super squishy. You’ll be ready for winter in no time.

This pattern requires familiarity with Tunisian crochet. Click the link for a great list of resources if you’re just learning or even if you just want to learn more.

Crochet Pattern: 4-Point Felted Square Coaster

By Candace – August 16th, 2016 Be the first to comment
I’ve been working on a big project and, at the end of a ball of yarn and needing a break, I decided to try my hand at felting again. This time I added bobbles to see how they’d show up in the finished product. The result is a project you can easily find time to work on and get some hands-on felting experience with (and wool coasters that you can run through the washer and dryer). crochet_four_point_felt_coaster

You can even crochet a bunch of them to create an entire set. Although not required, the container can be stiffened or starched if desired.

Crochet Pattern: Pineapple Applique

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 4th, 2016 Be the first to comment
Have you noticed how popular pineapples have been lately? Artistic renderings of pineapples are adorning all kinds of things from clothing to accessories to school supplies! This crocheted pineapple applique was inspired by a cartoon image I found online. I like how this one is a little unsymmetrical. For some reason that appeals to me. It would be fun to crochet this in different colors to decorate a tote bag, t-shirt, pencil case, or even a book cover. Just use strong glue to attach them.

How to Crochet: Standing Single Crochet

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 2nd, 2016 4 Comments

Standing single crochet is a method for joining a new yarn and/or color to your work. It is as simple as starting with a slip knot on your hook with your new yarn and making a single crochet stitch. You can use this technique in place of having to tie your new yarn to your work.
