Crochet Pattern: Little Arbor Fingerless Gloves

By Candace – May 29th, 2014 2 Comments
These gloves get their name from the little trees that decorate the wrist and forearm. Fingerless gloves are great to have on hand (no pun intended) when it’s cold outside or when the air conditioners turn on and indoor spaces get chilly. Made in juicy summer colors, they’re a great reminder that spring and summer are right outside. Made in deep, warm colors, they’re a great compliment to wintery outfits. crochet little arbor fingerless gloves

Public Displays of Crochet Planned for WWKIP!

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – May 28th, 2014 6 Comments

It’s that time of year. It’s time for crochet to come out of the woodwork and into the streets! As you may already know, we yarn crafters have a special event each year called “World Wide Knit in Public Day,” or WWKIP. Yeah, I know the “K” in there stands for knitting, but I am not going to split hairs about it today. As far as I am concerned, I consider the existence of the phenomenon an invitation to bring yarn to the parks, beaches, and sidewalk cafes! This is our time to be ambassadors of our craft by simply doing what we do.

Crochet Pattern: Cliffside Infinity Scarf

By Amy – May 26th, 2014 2 Comments
As with most clothing accessories, infinity scarves can differ in length and width as well as thickness and weight, making them available for wearing year round. In the summertime a lightweight scarf is preferable while the winter begs a more fibrous and heavy stitch. This scarf is a longer version giving you the ability to wrap it three times or just twice for a more draped look. With a thick stitch texture, your neck won’t lack for warmth. A strap holds the layers together for a stylish twist. Don’t you think the button adds just the right touch? crochet cliffside infinity scarf

Your Go-To Crochet Pattern Brings Optimal Experience

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – May 24th, 2014 17 Comments

Tell me what you think of the following assertion: The soothing motions of crochet are made even more comforting when your brain doesn’t have to work too hard to figure out what comes next in a pattern. When you can easily select your hook and yarn and just stitch, crochet takes on a different, meditative dimension.

Am I right, people? …

What brought on this sudden episode of “deep thoughts?” Well, it’s just that I think that most of us probably have a pattern or two that we go back to over and over again because it’s just comfortable. Maybe we’ve made it so many times that it’s fun to see what else this pattern can become for us. And working on this pattern so often allows us to move our attention from the physical movements and mental concentration required for other patterns and experience crochet in an entirely different way.

Crochet Pattern: Patriotic Flag

By Amy – May 20th, 2014 3 Comments
To those of us who live in the United States of America, the three colors that make up our flag is the essence of patriotism. When Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag, little did she know the effect it would have on her growing country. And yet it’s hard not to take it all for granted. During these summer patriotic holidays let’s try to keep in mind how blessed we are to be Americans! Patriotic Flag

What’s a Color Card? Why Would I Need One of Those?

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – May 17th, 2014 8 Comments

That sweater! You love it and you have to make one! When you feel motivation like this, you know that you’ll practice project monogamy and work on it and only it until you can wear it proudly. But since this is a significant investment of time and attention, you want to make SURE the final product is one that you’ll absolutely love. You need to KNOW that will be well worth the time, effort, and I’ll say it, MONEY that you’re about to put in.

There is nothing worse than the following scenario: You’ve spent a lot of time thinking, comparing, asking for advice, and dreaming about your perfect yarn. You’ve excitedly selected it right down to the color that will perfectly compliment your wardrobe. You anticipate the package arriving at your doorstep, and eagerly tear into it to find that the COLOR of this yarn, this perfect, perfect yarn is just… not what you thought. Crestfallen.

Actually, this did happen to a friend of mine, and this exactly why a color card can save your life!

Crochet Pattern: Mrs. Muir Afghan

By Amy – May 15th, 2014 6 Comments
In the 1947 movie, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, there are two granny style afghans belonging to Mrs. Muir that are very noticeable. One is a granny motif afghan while the other looks like this one here. I loved the second one so much I decided to redesign it for Crochet Spot. This afghan is a perfect square that you can adjust to make as large or small as you desire. There’s no turning involved with this pattern so the right side of the stitches will all appear on one side. Have fun mixing and matching colors to make this granny square inspired afghan your own! crochet granny square afghan
