Do You Sell Items Made from Crochet Spot Patterns?

By Rachel Choi – June 11th, 2016 Be the first to comment

If you sell crocheted items that are made from any Crochet Spot patterns, I would love to add you to a directory I’m creating. Often times non-crocheters see a Crochet Spot pattern and would like to purchase the finished item. However, I do not always have the time to make the items. If you use Crochet Spot patterns often and even sell the finished items already, I would love to add you to a list I’m creating so that non-crocheters can easily find someone who can crochet a pattern for them.

If you would like to be added to this free directory, please email [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Your full name and business name (if you have one)
  • Link to your online shop (Etsy shop, personal website, Facebook page, etc.) so that folks can see your work
  • Email address, which will appear publicly in the directory
  • 2 – 3 sentences about yourself and/or your crochet work, to be displayed with your information
  • List the CrochetSpot.com patterns that you enjoy crocheting the most. These patterns will be noted so that customers can choose a crocheter that matches their needs.

If you have any questions about this directory, feel free to let me know!

How to Crochet: Invisible Decreases

By Rachel Choi – June 9th, 2016 Be the first to comment

Increasing and decreasing creates shape in your crochet projects, but traditional decrease stitches don’t always blend well and can stick out and be unsightly. The invisible decrease technique can be used with a lot of different stitches. The technique is similar for each stitch.

Crochet Pattern: Felted Bowl

By Candace – June 7th, 2016 Be the first to comment
Felting is one method you can use to give your crochet projects a whole new look. One benefit of it? Once it’s good and felted, you don’t have to worry about it shrinking and getting ruined in the wash. Give felting a try by making this easy felted decorative bowl.

Remember that to make a project felt, you have to use the right yarn. Break out your natural animal fibers for this one.

Crochet Pattern: Rose Bush Scrubbie Set

By Rachel Choi – June 5th, 2016 4 Comments

Inspired by the rose bushes in my garden, this set includes rose shaped scrubbies and green cleaning cloths. The scrubbies and cloths can be displayed in a cute flower pot to resemble a rose bush, making it a great gift idea and decoration for your home. The rose shaped scrubbies are crocheted with ordinary yarn and nylon netting held together to create a rough texture that’s great for scrubbing. Use a scrubbie for your dishes and another to exfoliate your face or body. The cleaning cloth has a leaf inspired stitch pattern and a hexagon shape. It can be used to clean dishes and counter tops, or used as a washcloth or face cloth. Crochet with 100% cotton yarn for extra absorbency. Pattern includes a tutorial for preparing and crocheting with nylon netting.

Crochet Pattern: “I Love Crochet” Beaded Bracelet

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – June 4th, 2016 Be the first to comment
You can find alphabet beads in the kids’ section of your craft store. But why should kids have all the fun? I love using alphabet beads for various crafts, and since we’ve been exploring beads quite a bit here on Crochet Spot, I decided to design a bracelet that proudly proclaims to the world my love of crochet! I hope you like it as much as I do! This pattern is written to accommodate the “I LOVE CROCHET” message, but you could substitute other words.

An Honest Review of the Yarnit

By Rachel Choi – June 2nd, 2016 11 Comments

Is that a magical, crystal ball with yarn I see?? No, it’s the Yarnit! It’s a nifty, new gadget for holding your yarn while you crochet (or knit). The yarn sits inside the globe so that it doesn’t roll around on the floor or get dirty. You can use it at home, but it’s also great for folks who like to travel with their projects. Is the Yarnit for you? With any item there are always pros and cons, and in this review I’ll share with you my honest opinion.

Tips and Fun from Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival 2016

By Candace – May 31st, 2016 Be the first to comment

Who loves fiber festivals? I do! And if you haven’t been to one yet, I wholeheartedly recommend looking up ones near you and going. This year, I was fortunate to be able to make it down to Maryland for the annual Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, and between festival itself and time I got to spend with friends, I had a ball! As with any event, it’s more fun when you keep some things in mind.

Aren't these little guys cute?  Look at those spots!

Crochet Pattern: Colorful Rainbow Mug Rug

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – May 26th, 2016 Be the first to comment
I could not stop with just one Mug Rug pattern, especially with the merry month of June upon us. Show your pride and/or love of diversity this summer with this versatile Colorful Rainbow Mug Rug! I made mine using (some of) a jumbo package of embroidery floss. Each color used just over one 10-yard skein of floss held double (two strands of floss held together while crocheting), meaning each stripe used the length of about 5.5 yards as held double, or about 11 yards total. These stripes could be changed to any colors to suit your mood. The cotton floss held double ended up being about the weight of a sock yarn.
