Crochet Pattern: Watermelon Applique

By Emilee Gettle – April 19th, 2012 2 Comments
One thing my garden can’t be without is several hills of watermelon. My family can’t resist it’s mouthwatering sweetness; it’s my daughter’s favorite summer treat! So, I created this watermelon applique to embelish her summer dresses. I’m also going to sew it on one of her white t-shirts to add a touch of pizzaz! Why pay lots of money for something similar at a boutique when you can make it yourself for little to nothing! This applique would also be great sewn onto picnic napkins to catch some of the juicy sweetness of summer’s favorite fruit.

What to Do With Those Tiny Crochet Hooks

By Tameko Barnette – April 18th, 2012 32 Comments

My favorite size crochet hook is “J”. However, most of my creations are made with a size H, I, or K. When I started attending a crochet group around the end of 2011, one of the members gave me two tiny crochet hooks.

I believe they are sizes B and C. Very small. They are so small I can’t even see the hook without my reading glasses.

My mind scrambled to find uses for these tiny crochet hooks because quite frankly, I couldn’t then and still can’t imagine now actually using them for a pattern. Now, I’m sure you extremely advanced crocheters from way back can really work with any crochet hook that comes your way. But I have to admit these tiny crochet hooks got me stumped. So I figured out another use for them.

There’s a new pattern in the Crochet Spot Store! This pattern is very similar to the Super Quick Family Beanie Set (also available in the store). Due to recent requests, this pattern uses light weight yarn instead of the traditional medium weight yarn.
