Crochet Pattern: Autumn Leaf Earrings

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – October 23rd, 2013 7 Comments
If you’ve paid any attention to the earrings I have designed so far on Crochet Spot, such as my Spring Flower Earrings and Giselle Earrings, you will notice that I am a big fan of the long, dangle-y type. One reason is because I wear my hair down most of the time and they are the only ones that show. So I am adding to my “collection” a set of fall earrings. These earrings are loose and breezy, perfect for the season. Choose any colors you please and have fun! Autumn Leaf Earrings

Crochet Pattern: Trellis Wrap

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – October 19th, 2013 Be the first to comment
In the crisp morning air there is nothing more pleasant than being able to wrap a handmade shawl or wrap around your shoulders. This wrap has beautiful drape and, contrary to many beliefs due to the “holes”, is very warming. I chose Bernat Bamboo yarn because I wanted something delicate and comfortable. I’m happy to say that it turned out extremely well. Try it out and tell me what you think. You can wear it for both warmth and style. Either way, be sure and have fun crocheting! Trellis Wrap

The Crochet Foe

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – October 17th, 2013 14 Comments

Did you ever have a project that just haunted you? I mean, a project that you were really, really excited about but just fell flat? A project you have labored over for hours and hours only to have it look completely hideous when you put it on?

Let’s be honest, folks, they can’t all be winners.

Maybe you have guessed by now. I have such a project and I must be a glutton for punishment, because I am considering taking this crazy project up again. I can’t let it rest!!!

Crochet Pattern: Slouchable Fingerless Gloves

By Candace – October 13th, 2013 5 Comments
A fun casual fall accessory, these fingerless gloves have a bit of drape in the arms, allowing you to scrunch them if you choose. They are perfect for a day when the weather is cool and the drinks are hot. The pattern is quite simple, but requires the invisible decrease technique, so advanced beginners may want to give it a try. The gloves are crocheted all in one piece and no sewing is required! crochet slouchable fingerless gloves

How to Crochet: Vertical Chains

By Candace – October 12th, 2013 7 Comments

While playing around with yarn and a hook, I came up with something I call the vertical chain. It’s simple: a chain that’s worked into a stitch so it stands up as opposed to going across your work. The chain is flatter than a normal crochet stitch, so it creates a thinner fabric.

The general idea behind it is that you insert your hook into the next stitch, make a few chains, then finish the stitch.

Crochet Pattern: Indian Bracelet

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – October 10th, 2013 13 Comments
I have always been proud of my Cherokee heritage. Of course, I’m equally proud of the Irish and Scottish blood in me as well. But as autumn rolls around we tend to remember the vital role the Native Americans had in the settling of the New World. I love this time of year and I look forward to hearing the stories once again! This bracelet is an example of my love for the season and the events surrounding it. I hope you enjoy crocheting it! Indian Bracelet

How to Crochet: Tunisian Reverse Stitch (Trs)

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – October 8th, 2013 1 Comment

Hooray for Tunisian Crochet! Since I gave you 3 Reasons to Try Tunisian Crochet, have you done it yet? Well, if not, grab your long crochet hooks and join me! A while back, Rachel posted a great photo tutorial of the “setup row” of Tunisian crochet, which is the standard first row in each Tunisian crochet project. The tutorial can be found as steps 1-13 of the Tunisian Simple Stitch Tutorial.

Please note: Steps 11-13 of the Tunisian Simple Stitch Tutorial could also be called, “How to Work the Reverse Pass in Tunisian Crochet”. These steps remain the same in all basic Tunisian crochet patterns.

Rachel also posted the beautiful Tunisian Knit Stitch Tutorial! Today we’re going to add a stitch to our library by learning the Tunisian Reverse Stitch, abbreviated (Trs).

Crochet Pattern: Candy Colors Baby Blanket

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – October 6th, 2013 4 Comments
After I had been crocheting for a little while I wanted to move on to something more advanced, so I decided to make a baby blanket for my cousin’s first baby. I chose Bernat’s Baby Coordinates and found an adorable pattern with double crochet shells. It took me about six months but when I was finished I was thoroughly satisfied with my work. Since then I have made many baby blankets and found that they are my favorite project to come back to. Now I let my creativity roam free and come up with whatever design I feel like at the moment. crochet candy colors baby blanket
