Crocodile Scarf Tail « Cult of Crochet. So this is where I’m up to with the crocodile scarf.

Crocodile Scarf Tail « Cult of Crochet

I looked at a few different websites explaining the crocodile stitch and while everyone does seem to do it slightly differently once I got my head around the general idea it was actually very easy. I also discovered that my main issue with watching videos to learn stitches is that I get bored after about 10 seconds. Apart from videos there didn’t seem to be much of anything else and what there was was quite sketchy and vague. So for everyone out there like me here is a detailed photo tutorial of how I created the scarf so far…. Crochet terms are English as always so have a look at the conversion chart for the American alternatives. Some of the instructions I watched flipped the work back and forth to create the scales however I found it easier to always have the front facing me and spin the work. Step 1. Step 2. tr into the 3rd chain from the hook. Repeat steps 5-7 until the tail is as long as you would like it. Step 10.

How to crochet ric-rac.

What are you up to this fine Monday morning? Since my post last week, I've had so many emails and comments asking about the recipe for homemade, hooked ric-rac, that I thought I'd do a little how to. Before we start there are a few things to keep in mind. I am using US crochet terminology.I usually use a size 2 hook but its fun to experiment. The smaller the hook-the smaller the ric-rac, the bigger the hook, the bigger the ric-rac.I use 4ply mercerised cotton but its fun to experiment with different plies and yarns.My words describe the picture above them.The stitches I am using are chain (ch) and double crochet (dc).

STEP ONE - Chain four. STEP TWO - dc into the fourth chain from the hook, ie. the first chain you made. STEP THREE - Do another dc into the same chain as in step two, chain, then do a final dc into the same chain. STEP FOUR - Chain three. STEP FIVE - Turn your work so that the crochet you just did is up the top as per the photo. Then chain three. and turn. Fasten off.

Crocheted Bobble Edging Tutorial

I mentioned before that I wanted to play around with ideas for edging off Nani's Hexagon blanket and I wanted something that reflects her happy, quirky personality. The hexagon blanket is being made (and here I assure you...I have stuck to the goal of doing two hex's every day until it is finished...yes, yes, I know the year is only 4 days old :) .....) in hectic, bright colours, because that just what Nani is like! So, without further ado...here is the tutorial... I have crocheted a simple sc base on which to work. Above you can see that I have just turned the work and chained one. Slip stitch into the FIRST space of the row. Chain 2. Repeat the same again...yarn around hook, insert hook into same space again, yarn around hook, pull through, you have 4 loops on your hook, yarn around hook, pull through TWO LOOPS only...you now have THREE loops on your hook...

Rectangle Granny with full pictures

When I say "working in rounds" I am talking about where you start in the middle and your piece grows outward, getting larger, until it is the size you need. Most grannies are worked on one side without turning. Most grannies are also square. We are going to learn different methods of making a rectangular granny.

If you want to view all the videos on rectangle grannies, you can find them in this playlist at the Crochet Cabana YouTube channel. METHOD #1 - Basic Rectangle Granny In the first method, we start with a short chain and work along both sides to achieve a rectangular shape. For the first method we will loosely make a chain (ch) of 13 stitches (sts). Partially completed round 1: Rounds two and three, respectively: Back to top METHOD #2 - Rows to Rounds.

Trying Something New » Creative Fidget

I reckon these baskets are made with the same method. I decided to give it a go, using loom ends and some thick acrylic yarn my Mum used to make a hooked rug out of in the 70s. I didn’t like the method. The main pro was that I could use up loom ends, the main con was that the constant joining in of a new bit of yarn and the sewing was time consuming. I kept thinking that I could probably do this using crochet, with one continuous strand. It is there, though with a much less appealing cover. Hmm. Anyway, I looked at my macrame supplies and there were two thicker kinds of rope that would work well, in natural and black. I’m really pleased with the result. And there is so much potential for using other materials.

I could be even more adventurous, and substitute the rope with strips of paper or card, fabric, wire, or even electrical cord. The book went onto my wishlist at Fishpond.

I am sure many of you who can crochet fairly well may not know how to crochet a granny ripple. While I was crocheting my vibrant pillow 3 I thought I would make a tutorial on granny ripple but for some reason I couldn't do it then. Here it is now. Once you get started and go in the right direction granny ripples are fun to make, but getting started is what irks me a lot.

The major problem here is deciding upon the number of chains to start with. Since you are not going to work in a straight pattern the length of the chains that you make at the beginning have to be somewhere around one and half times the length of the finished pattern. So to start with, make chains of length that you desire. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Since some of you are having doubts about ending and starting a row I have included these additional instructions and photos to elaborate on them. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. The below picture shows the end of row 4.

And end of row 5. PS: This is a not a cushion cover. Virkattu kukka - ohje, Crochet flower instructions. Carina's craftblog: No foundation chain crochet tutorial. No foundation chain crochet tutorial Did you know that you can make crochet rows without the foundation chain? It was news to me until very recently. But bloody 'ell, what a brilliant concept! The reason this is so great is that when you make a foundation chain first, it can sometimes screw with the tension at the beginning of the project, making it tighter than the rest of it. The ripple blanket I made last year is an example of this.

Anyway, here's the tutorial. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Now we are starting to see a pattern, right? Here's what a (small) no foundation chain row looks like. And here are example swatches of no foundation chain and foundation chain.
