By Rachel Choi – April 8th, 2012 4 Comments
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. The light weight yarn will create a lighter beanie that is great for warmer weather during the spring or fall. The pattern uses primarily double crochet stitches, making each hat fairly quick to crochet.

Crochet Pattern: Bow Tie Quilt Block

By Emilee Gettle – April 5th, 2012 3 Comments
I really love quilting. Mixing and matching all my favorite fabrics together to make something beautiful is so rewarding. So, the thought occurred to me, why not use my favorite quilt patterns for crochet patterns? This week I made a bow tie quilt block pattern for you to enjoy. You could make this block into something special for a baby with all the beautiful baby yarn available. You don’t have to break the budget either; it’s a great way to use up scrap yarn. Make several blocks with different colored bowties to create an afghan.

How to Crochet: Butterfly Stitch

By Candace – March 30th, 2012 13 Comments

The butterfly stitch is a simple technique that creates a lace-like accent. It’s worked between other stitches, usually double crochet or taller. The butterfly stitch is worked over four rows and uses long chain spaces. In this tutorial, the chain spaces are 8 chains long.

Hovering over the pictures will give you a left-handed view.

Start by beginning your row as usual. You’ll need at least one stitch on each end of the butterfly stitch to anchor it to. Make the required number of chains and finish your first three rows.
