Warmer Than a Witch's Knits: Erishkigal Skully Snowflake. Here is the pattern you've been waiting for! This winter, a friend posted a picture of a paper skully snowflake. I was absolutely enchanted! I had just begun to crochet, being confined to a cast after breaking my hand. This friend then challenged me to come up with a good skull snowflake, and so this pattern was born.

The inspiration for this pattern comes from The Lost Souls Shawl, a great pattern; I recommend you check it out! For this pattern I recommend that you have some experience with crochet. Here's a huge caveat. Materials: #10 crochet thread Hook appropriate for you and the thread; I use a 1.75 mm Begin: 1) Ch 6, join with a ss to the first stitch on the chain. 2) Ch 12, tr into ch sp, *ch 8, tr into ch sp.

Here's where we're going to repeat a lot. 5) "Start". *7dc onto the 7ch from previous round, ch 3, (2dc, ch 1, 2dc) into ch 1 sp, ch 3. Now it should look like a chin, open mouth with a little nose hole. 9) "Start". 11) Sl st over to the skull.

It’s really difficult to come up with a price that is fair for both you and your costumers. I have seen several methods for pricing, but, none of them ever really seem to be fair for all projects. I know some people who charge per hour. I know others who use materials x 3. I even know people who charge hourly + materials. Personally, I use a mixture of these three methods and a method of my own. First, I am going to explain to you the three common pricing methods.

Method 1: Charging materials times 3. Method 2: Charging per hour at a rate of $10.00 Method 3: Charging per hour and adding materials Keep in mind that when you are pricing your crochet projects, charge for total materials, not just the materials that were used. In a perfect world, method 3 would be the one that we should use, but, for the costumer, it just isn’t feasible.

First, find the category of what you are making. Headbands/Ear Warmers Scarves Cowls Shawls/Ponchos Hats. Hexa-Puff Baby "Quilt" A long time ago at our local craft circle, I was introduced to the Apiary Puff and the concept of a crochet/knit "quilt" of sorts, using stuffed crochet tiles in a larger blanket design. I fell in love immediately, but I knew it would be quite the endeavor to make a whole project out of them. Well, when Lydia (a fellow crochetter) found out she was expecting, I knew I couldn't do anything less! I changed the pattern, because I was trying to find a simpler way of making, stuffing, and then sewing together the puffs. Here is what I came up with! Yarns: Pound of Love (in Pastel Yellow), Red Heart Super Saver (in Coral), I Love This Yarn (in Hot Rose).Hook(s): 5mm for Pound of Love, 4mm for Red Heart, and 3.5mm for I Love This YarnGauge: Overall gauge is unimportant, however, you'll want all of your hex pieces to be the same size in the end, so with every different yarn you use, test the gauge with different hooks until you match the gauge of your existing hex pieces.
