Book Review: Crochet Adorned

By Claire Ortega-Reyes – December 12th, 2013 4 Comments
I’ve always kept a lookout for Linda Permann’s crochet patterns. I’ve always thought her creations were whimsical yet elegant and practical since the first creation I saw from her: “Pinups” from Stitch ‘n Bitch Crochet. So when I found out that she had authored her own book, I immediately set out to get a copy. Crochet Adorned: Reinvent Your Wardrobe with Crocheted Accents, Embellishments, and Trims was everything I had expected it to be–it was just so Linda (“linda” by the way is Italian, Spanish and Portuguese for beautiful or pretty, which makes it even more appropriate).

How to Crochet: Long Double Crochet (ldc)

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – December 10th, 2013 7 Comments

There are certain things I do without intention and one of them is recognizing crochet or finding crochet inspiration in the movies. And I know I am not the only one. (See this post by Cami for example). What I noticed lately inspired me to design my new pattern, the Abigail Hat and Scarf. The pattern uses a very basic stitch to which I’ve added a “twist”. If you want to know how to make it follow along and I’ll show you.

Crochet Pattern: Trellis Christmas Ornament

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – December 6th, 2013 2 Comments
After seeing a pattern for crocheting ornament covers in a crochet magazine I thought they would make a great holiday activity for my family to do together. But even though it’s an easy pattern, there are still elements a newbie would struggle with. So I decided to make my own design using the very basics of crochet. And here it is! Add a little glitter for some sparkle and don’t forget the ribbon! Trellis Christmas Ornament

Crochet Pattern: Gracie the Butterfly

By Candace – December 1st, 2013 3 Comments
Gracie is a butterfly with an amigurumi body and open wings. She is a great addition to a child’s room and would look neat on a shelf or among other stuffed animals. The wings have a lot of shaping but intermediate crocheters should have no problem. The wings are crocheted separately and then sewn onto the main body. Feel free to mix and match colors to create a butterfly that is uniquely yours! crochet butterfly

Add a little sparkle to your party outfits this holiday season with a Sparkly Rose Ring. It’s easy to make and whips up quickly. The pattern is made in two pieces, the ring band and the rose. You can adjust the beginning chains on the ring band to fit any size finger, so they also make perfect gifts for everyone on your list. They only take a few yards of yarn, so they are a good way to use up your yarn stash too. For colorful variations, you can use two different colors one for the band and one for the rose. Blog Ring
