Basketweave Afghan. Speed of Light Cowl Crochet Pattern | Speckless Blog. Dang, it has been crazy ’round here. December is a historically hectic time for us: the holidays (and everything that goes along with them), the traveling, my birthday, and the SNOW. We really got payback for our dry winter last year.

Crochet Sock Hats - All Sizes + Tutorial. Crochet Sock Hats My sock hat is inspired by work socks. They remind me a lot of my dad as he is one of the hardest working people I know. I know my work ethics from from my dad with the creativity inspired by my mom. Looking at these socks, it reminds me of seeing these in the hamper when I was exceptionally young. Today, we are seeing these types of clothing in the main stream stores that are in hats, scarves, mittens and sweaters.

For my design, I decided to put in ribbing as there is ribbing in the original socks. While in the store, I clued in that Bernat Super Value has a colour in the collection called Grey Ragg. As you can see from my picture, my design is very close to allow others to think it’s authentic. Other two colours are Bernat Super Value, Natural and Bernat Super Value, Berry.

Then I saw a circular version of this idea and realised I could make my own! This uses a technique similar to thrumming, where you crochet over another thread to add bulk to a fabric.

If you have ever crocheted over your ends to avoid weaving in, this works the same way. In this case I used rope instead of another yarn, which is a lot bulkier but great for adding stiffness and making each row deeper. This project had the added bonus of using up a single skein I had left in my stash! The resulting basket is rectangular with rounded corners. Finished article You will need: Length of rope (mine was 38m in length and 6mm diameter, for a 22x42x17cm basket)Stash yarn (I used 310m of Patons 100% cotton 4ply in a cream colourway)Size 5.00mm crochet hook (use a metal hook if possible as the work is quite stiff), or larger if your rope is thicker.

Online Selling Question A crocheter writes, “I need to find a website where I can sell my stuff where they don’t take any percentage away from me or require a credit card in order for me to list my items for sale. I cannot set up ETSY because I have no credit card. Please send me a list of websites where I can list for free and doesn’t keep any portion of my money?”

I get where this crocheter is coming from. The customer point of view comes out in me but also the business side of me in operating The Crochet Crowd in funding our expenses to run a free service. Listing items for sale in the crochet world online is really a tough gig. Finding a website that will list for free, sell and not take a percentage of the sale to cover their operational expenses is a bit unrealistic. At one time, I contemplated selling an e-Book and keep it cheap for everyone at 99 cents. I was pretty upset about it but as The Crochet Crowd grew and had to get other companies involved with programming and more. Crochet Elf Hats for the Entire Family - Free Pattern and Video.

Although I’ve crocheted many different items over the years, it was only recently that I heard the term “prayer shawl”. One of the ladies in my monthly craft group was crocheting them for a ministry at her church. She explained to me that when she crochets, she says prayers for healing and comfort for the soon to be recipient. I think this is a lovely thing to do for someone. I rarely ever sell anything I make, but I really get more pleasure in giving a crocheted gift to someone. I asked my friend if her ministry is in need more shawls and she said absolutely. In this season of giving, do you know anyone in need of thoughts and prayers? Be creative! – Jeanne – The Crochet Crowd. Crochet Large Pumpkin + Tutorial.
