By Claire Golden – April 4th, 2019 Be the first to comment

For many kids, the most fun part of playing dolls is dressing them up. This mermaid tail is an especially fun outfit that can be enjoyed by both kids and older doll collectors. It uses the cobble stitch, a pattern of alternating single and double crochet that’s much easier than it looks. The stitch makes the tail durable for many afternoons of play, and you can use any color combination you like for a variety of looks. You could even include a mermaid tail along with a Barbie doll for a unique gift.

Try mixing up the colors to make something that will brighten your winter days!

How to Crochet: Slip Stitch Increase

By Amy Yarbrough – March 7th, 2019 2 Comments

You know how to increase in crochet, right? Just add two stitches to the indicated space instead of one.

However, have you ever tried to increase with a slip stitch?

Let me give you an idea of how it works. You would insert the hook into the indicated stitch, pull up a loop and pull that loop through the one on your hook. When you go to make another slip stitch in the same space you would undo the stitch you just made.

Scrunchies are regaining their popularity, which makes me happy because they’re such a fun accessory. It’s a great way to spice up a plain ponytail or bun, and it’s a perfect stash-buster for those tiny balls of yarn. I made this scrunchie with some leftover purple yarn and the finished result reminds me of a sea anemone. Try it out and add some ruffly flair to your hair!

Free Crochet Pattern: Catty Corner Throw Pillow

By Amy Yarbrough – February 25th, 2019 Be the first to comment

I’m not going to lie, I frogged this design so many times. The theory was sound, I kept telling myself, and I did not want to give up, but the uniqueness of the stitch I had chosen caused me a great deal of question. I first had to find how to count rows of slip stitch, where the turning chain was, whether I wanted to work into the turning chain for a finer edge, and etc. However, once I had it figured out, the going was a breeze!

If you’ve ever worked from corner to corner then this pattern should be easy as pie for you. If you haven’t, then just know you will be increasing on both ends until you have the width of the pillow, working even by increasing on one end and decreasing on the other, and then decreasing on both ends to finish. Sound complicated? It really isn’t, trust me.

The only thing you need to know is how to increase while working a slip stitch pattern. Don’t miss the instructions below on how to do this!

This was really an exciting pattern to design. I hope you like it. Let me know if you give it a try!
