#Crochet #TipsTuesday: How to join granny squares using the whipstitch. I love crocheting granny squares, and over the years, I’ve tried many different joining methods but I’ve never settled on a favorite.

#Crochet #TipsTuesday: How to join granny squares using the whipstitch

I shared a tutorial for joining grannies with the mattress stitch last month, and with the Mystery Lapghan crochet-a-long underway, I thought now would be a good time to share another joining method. Using the whipstitch is another easy way to join granny squares, or any other crochet or knitting project that needs to be seamed. This post contains affiliate links. Just as for the mattress stitch, you’ll need a yarn needle for the whipstitch join. Yarn needles are blunt needles with very large eyes. My favorite yarn needles are the Susan Bates 2″ steel yarn needles and the Clover Chibi Jumbo Darning Needle set (which comes with a little carrying case). Thread the yarn needle (preferably with the yarn tail of one piece).

I generally leave a yarn tail that is about 3 times longer than the piece I’m seaming. Pull the yarn through both loops. Fallin' Back Cowl ~ FREE Crochet Pattern by CrochetNCrafts.

The flower motifs are fairly quick and easy to crochet up and are joined to each other as you make them. The only time consuming thing about making this bag is to weave in all the ends.

Bead Stitch Gift Card Case

In my first case I worked only one row of bead stitches, but for this one I worked the bead stitches in every other round/row. It’s on the bulky side, but if you have the room for it in your purse then it’s all good. Otherwise, it’ll make for a perfect sleeve for gift cards. Bead Stitch Fingerless Gloves. Bead Stitch Fingerless Gloves And yet another pattern with the bead stitch … a pair of fingerless gloves.

Bead Stitch Fingerless Gloves

What can I say except that I’m in love with the stitch. I love how you can put the beads into rows in order to create that little bit of texture. Not only that, the stitch is super easy to work with! The great thing about fingerless gloves is that they warm your hands and wrists while keeping your fingers free. These gloves fit small hands, but if you need a larger size, use a larger hook or thicker yarn. Also, these gloves are designed to fit both the left and right hands. Cross-Over Long DC Fingerless Gloves. Cross-Over Long DC Fingerless Gloves Here is my first pattern with the cross-over long double crochet stitch.

It is for a pair of fingerless gloves to help keep your hands nice and cozy in chilly weather. They are great for working on the computer. They reach just past my knuckles, which is a bit long if you want to use them for crocheting. But they would be just perfect if you made them one round shorter than what is instructed in the pattern.

This post is a bit different than most of my posts, but I couldn’t resist because I thought it would be such a good match. This post has not been paid for, however, the company did purchase an ad slot on this website.

I’m simply writing about it here, because I believe their woven name labels will be of value to many of my readers. These woven name labels are great if you have a shop where you sell finished handmade items, or if you give a lot of handmade gifts. The labels are sew on labels, so they can be attached to anything that is crocheted, knit or sewn.

The name for this crossing over beanie crochet pattern came as a result of the cross stitches used … and also because I’m always crossing over new bridges in my life.

Some bridges are fun to cross, while others are not so fun. Sometimes they are wobbly and give you the creeps as you are crossing over. Other times they run through dark tunnels; tunnels so dark that you can’t even see your own steps. And you have no idea if there’s a light at the other end, or if you’ll even make it that far. But you keep going anyway because you don’t have the option of turning back. Then after a while, you begin to see a tiny light at the end of the tunnel and you start moving faster.
