After understanding the basics in filet crochet, many crocheters run into the same problem. After completing a few rows or a section or even an entire piece, they realize that their filet open and closed spaces (also called “squares”, “mesh”, “blocks” and others) have more of a rectangle shape.

Crochet Pattern: Feather Cable Fingerless Gloves

By Candace – February 19th, 2016 4 Comments
There’s been a lot of spinning talk around here lately, and since I’ve been getting more spinning done, it’s time I used more of my handspun up. This yarn called for texture, so I chose cables, and it is easy to adjust the sizing. Not a spinner? Don’t worry! While the pattern was written for my handspun, it will work for any comparable solid-colored or semisolid yarn–handspun or commercial. crochet_feather_cable_fingerless_gloves

In this post we will be traveling back in time to the days when every household had doilies on display and every armchair had antimacassars. (What is an antimacassar? Read on…) I will be discussing the thread and patterns needed to achieve the vintage look.

How to Crochet a Tube, or How to Crochet in Rounds (Version 1)

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – February 13th, 2016 Be the first to comment

When we talk about crocheting in the round, it can mean many things. For example, you could be crocheting a flat circle in rounds or in spirals. You could also be crocheting an oval in the round. However, there is another way to crochet around and around. Instead of crocheting flat, like a coaster or a placemat, you’re crocheting up, like a basket or hat. This techniques creates a three-dimensional piece and can be used in countless applications.
