Crochet Pattern: Felted Flower

By Candace – May 24th, 2016 Be the first to comment
Felting is something that I wasn’t originally interested in, but over time, the idea has grown on me. For my first pattern, I wanted to start with something small. An accent is a great first felted project because even if you don’t felt it enough or you felt it a little too much, the difference in size won’t be disastrous. Try adding a cluster of felted flowers to a finished hat or scarf or wearing one as a brooch to finish off an outfit. crochet_felted_flower

Crochet Pattern: Beaded Arc Necklace

By Rachel Choi – May 22nd, 2016 Be the first to comment

This fashion necklace is one of my new favorites. It’s really all about the beads. Choose a few beads in your favorite colors and string them together with crochet. The beads can be all one color, or different colors. Blues are my favorite to wear, but feel free to make the necklace in any color that you like. Imagine the necklace with vibrant orange or yellow to add a pop of color to a summer outfit. Try it in black, silver or gold for an elegant look. Whatever look you choose, it’s sure to look great tied around your neck!

Before starting your beaded crochet project, you’ll have to string your beads onto the yarn or thread. If you’re lucky, the beads will string on with no problem. However, many beads have small holes that are intended for jewelry wire, not crochet thread or yarn. In this post, I’ll discuss some tips and tricks to string your beads on. Sometimes the trick is really simple and quick, other times it can take a bit more work to get those stubborn beads on.

Add a pop of color to your pillows with a classic chevron pattern. Following the instructions within this pattern, you can create a pillow cover for any sized square or rectangle pillow. Unlike other chevron patterns, this pattern is solid and is crocheted with sharp peaks and valleys to ensure a bold stitch.

What’s Your Favorite Color Combos?

By Rachel Choi – May 12th, 2016 19 Comments

Have you ever started a multi-colored crochet project and realized that your color combo doesn’t look good at all? I certainly have! Even as a crochet designer I sometimes find it hard to choose great color combinations for my projects. Not all of my ideas turn out the way I think they will. Sometimes I create a fabulous color combo and sometimes it’s a flop (hey, I’m only human).

Crochet Pattern: Thermos Cozy

By Candace – May 10th, 2016 Be the first to comment
I have a nice steel thermos with a sleeve that had a small carrying strap. That sleeve seemed like it would be useful until the first time I used it, and my thermos full of tea slipped out of the sleeve and clattered to the ground. Since then, I’ve been meaning to make a cozy with a bottom for it.

This cozy is easy and quick to make and will make carrying your drinks (or soup) easy as pie.
