Ribbed Lace Bolero

Ribbed Lace Bolero
I’ve finished my ribbed lace bolero, with pattern as promised ;) I decided not to give the sleeves ribbing, like most of you suggested. I liked how it was sort of dainty, even with worsted weight yarn, and I thought ribbing on the sleeves would be too heavy for it. The shape of this is based on the Circular Shrug on Craftster. If you have questions, please contact me by email or through ravelry. Here you are,my ribbed lace bolero. -Kelly Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease 2 balls Needles: US8, US10.5 (circular or straight) Gauge: 4st/inch with in rib stretched US8 I’m including directions for a size small and easy calculations for a custom fit.

Free Crochet Lacy Bolero I wanted to make a bolero for my daughter for the cold mornings we have been having. They are not cold enough for a jersey but a lacy bolero is perfect. She was sleeping when I made it and sadly this turned out an inch to small but that just means I get to design another one and I already have an idea of what I would like to do. Size 1 Front Back Ribbing Materials: DK yarn, I used Acrylic Super Yarn from Spotlight. 5.00 mm and 4 mm crochet hook Tape measure ScissorsYarn needle DC V stitch – dc, ch1, dc in the same space.

No-Seam Crochet Shrug Pattern | Bianchi's Barn This is a free pattern for a beautiful, comfy shrug that is relatively easy to make and has no seams! I used Lion Brand Homespun Yarn in Windsor, a great color choice for spring- reminds of the beach side! But of course can be worked up in the many other colors Homespun Yarn has to offer for any time of year. I love making and wearing shrugs, but a lot of patterns I find for them require making the pieces separately and then sewing them together. I made this shrug on commission a couple of months ago before I started blogging, so I don’t have step-by-step pics for this particular shrug. This pattern is roughly a size large, but it’s not form-fitting so it should work well for anyone in the M-XL range. If you decide to try it out and have problems working it up, just leave a comment and I will be more than happy to guide you! Yarn: 4 Skeins Lion Brand Homespun (185 yd/169 m per skein) in Windsor Supplies: Crochet Hook size Q / 15.75mm Marker Yarn Needle Scissors Large Button (optional)

Of course, it doesn’t have to be a cat – change the ear style and it can be any animal at all – the colors had me thinking both wolf and Totoro!

Hello Kitty Granny Square Scarf Crochet Pattern (Note: I haven’t finished putting in some of the links I mention but know that some of you want this in time to make Christmas gifts) This is a free pattern for a scarf made up of rectangles joined together and surrounded by a picot-edged border, a fun accessory for anyone who loves Hello Kitty. Each rectangle features either a cute kitty face or a traditional granny square (modified slightly to make it oblong). It is very long. I have already been informed of some errors (wrong stitch total, missing stitches, etc) and have fixed those. Also, I did not think of this idea/design/motif myself; rather, I saw it as a pattern on Ravelry (which in turn was an adaptation, I believe, from a pattern in a Japanese crochet book), then I also found other versions online. OK, then. 5.00mm/US H(8) crochet hook 6.00mm/US J(10) crochet hook Yarn needle Optional but highly recommended: Stitch markers (Alice at has a tutorial on how to make stitch markers out of paper clips.

Winter Sunrise Scarf The Winter Sunrise Scarf proves I can’t get enough of this cluster stitch pattern! The Autumn Sunset Infinity Scarf featured this basic motif in a long repeating loop worked in the round, but I wanted to play with it in a more classic scarf. Classic, but not boring! This scarf is light, beautiful, and the perfect accessory for a chilly day. The finished crochet scarf pattern as written is about 6 inches wide and about 6 feet long, but as it’s a scarf, gauge isn’t terribly important – just work the pattern with the hook and yarn that give you the result you like. To make it with just one skein of yarn, stop the first half when you’re not quite halfway through the skein, then make the second half, leaving enough to work the sc edging. UPDATED 11/11/12 – Now there’s a chart – it’s the international language of crochet! Winter Sunrise Scarf Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue Special Stitches: Click here for a Video Tutorial!

Virkad döskallesjal. Med mönster // Crochet skull shawl. With pattern. Har ni någon gång googlat på ordet döskallesjal? Det har jag. Många gånger. Även googlat på engelska. Men aldrig hittat en döskallesjal som jag tyckt var snygg. Och när det är så...ja, då får man tydligen ta saken i egna händer och hitta på en egen variant. Jag har använt mig av 4 nystan Tilda-bomullsgarn och virknål nr 3,5. I min döskallesjal används fastmaskor, smygmaskor, stolpar och trippelstolar. Pattern is now also in English. I didn´t find any skull shawls that I liked on google, so I created my own shawl by combining bits from this shawl pattern and this skull pattern. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 5. 6. 7. 8. Och nu är det dags för själva döskalleögon-delen. Gör ytterligare 14 lm och slut till en ring med en smygmaska i samma maska som du slöt den förra ringen. Virka nu 18 fm runt varje ring. Now hold the eyes together with the shawl. De 5 rosamarkerade maskorna( två bilder upp) ska du inte virka alls i. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.
