CRAFT Pattern: Crocheted Reversible Swiffer Sock : Daily source of DIY craft projects and inspiration, patterns, how-tos | Craftzine.com - StumbleUpon By Linda Permann I’ve always hated buying refills for my Swiffer sweeper — even though I use both sides of the cloth, it just seemed silly to throw them away. My sweeper had been languishing in my closet because I had no refills when I realized I could crochet my own reusable cover from some yarn I already had in my stash. I came up with this reversible version that’s loopy on one side (to grab the dust) and flat on the other (for damp mopping). Materials About 125 yards of worsted weight acrylic yarn in two colors: 75 yards in color A and 50 yards in color B. Swiffer Sock Pattern With A, ch 33. Directions Step 1: With A, chain 31 stitches. Step 2: Working in the front loops only, *chain 4, slip stitch in next double crochet; repeat from * across. Here’s how the work will look once you’ve completed the first row of looped stitches. Step 3: Turn your work, chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), then double crochet in the front loop only of each double crochet (from first row) across.
Koala Bear Amigurumi | Free Pattern &Tutorial at CraftPassion.com I found a Koala Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koalas for my kids in reverse color. Some ideas to make it differently: 1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on it’s head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper. 2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler etc… 3. 4. Follow the crochet pattern at the above pattern link to crochet all the parts of the koala, which consist of: 1 head (stuff firmly and complete) 1 body 1 nose 2 ears 4 limbs Remember to leave a long yarn end (about 6-8″) for every part so that you will have enough yarn to sew. Lastly, stuff and sew the limbs to the body.
strikkefrenzys 14 Totoros The dolls in this pattern were too sugar cute for me, although I think they look great. In my head, I had 3 versions, maybe I can inspire someone to make the other two? - here they are: I. The just as sugar cute version: Since one of my passions is diving, I wanted to use the free sea horse pattern found HERE. II. Notes The I-cord cast-on kills my fingers… took me 2 days to finish! Why why WHYYY must everything always turn out too big? The decreases in this pattern look bumpy and ugly, not really recommended. Sleeves done! Yoke: 308 sts. The Totoro pattern can be found here!! Did 3 decrease rounds before the one in the written instructions. Used about 40 g of Pesto and 35 g My Old Blue Jeans. Photo session time!
Carina's Craftblog: Granny square joining tutorial Just a warning before we get started with the tutorial, there's LOTS of pictures and I may go into too much detail, but that's just what I do. ;-) By the way, this is the yarn I use. Dc/treble: this refers to the same stitch. Dc if you use US crochet terms and treble if you use UK terms. July 2012 - Please note: these days I do very little crochet because I'm working on an embroidery book. There are loads of methods of joining (granny) squares, my method is just one, and may not even be the best. If you have particular layout for your blanket in mind, lay out your squares in that pattern. Then stack your squares so you can keep track of what goes where. Because of how this method works, it is best to have as few squares in each stack as possible. Take the top square and put it on the left and then the next square and keep that on the right. Now put those 2 squares together, with the back of the squares facing each other. Next make 3 dc/trebles in the next space in the yellow square.

do you mind if i knit: Sewing up knitting or crochet with an invisible stitch. Hello! Would you like to know how I join all the seams of my knitting and crochet? You would?! That's great. I hope the following instructions are clear enough, and that they help you. The invisible stitch I am using, is also known as the 'ladder stitch', because the line of yarn joining your work, looks like a ladder, before it has been pulled taught. In these instructions, I'm joining up the squares of my 'Little Squares Scarf'. Right, here goes! Having lined up your middle squares of the first row ready to be sewn up, thread your needle with some yarn. Although I have four squares in each row of my scarf, I am going to start by sewing up the centre of the middle two rows of squares. Make sure your squares are all lying with the right side, (the front), facing up. 1. Above is another photo, to try and make it extra clear. In the photo above, you can see what I've just done. 2. You can see what I've just done, in the picture above. 3. Above you can see how your stitch is starting to look.
how-to: woven circles trivet I found the gold and pink crocheted trivet pictured below at the thrift store this weekend, and it was a total "I can make that" moment. The structure of the circles is made from plastic rings cut from one of those pieces that holds together a six-pack of soda. The hardest part will be in finding plastic rings that are actually circle. The sodas that were in my fridge (a Pepsi product) had "rings" that were more of an oval, almost D-like shape. Luckily I had a rounded version laying around, though I have no idea what kind of soda it came from. I am going to have to go to the 7-Eleven for research. What you need: Worsted weight cotton yarn in colors that you like. Round six-pack rings, trimmed apart into circles. Size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook Begin by attaching your yarn with a slip stitch to a ring. If 45 dc seem to be too many or too few to fill up your ring, you can adjust accordingly! Now lay them out like this with each ring overlapping the next: You're ready to make the center ring.
Lesson Plan: Worlds Easiest Skirt My sewing skills are pretty much limited to making my machine go forwards and backwards with a straight stitch. If you can do that (and also handle a pair of scissors), you can make this skirt. This lesson plan comes largely thanks to Susan of freshly picked, whose incredible and much more lucid elastic-waist skirt pattern you can find here. The first several steps are hers, and are much easier to understand on her blog. Thanks also to Kendi, who told me that I could add text using Picasa and contributed to any clarity this lesson plan has. P.S. In between these steps, measure your waist and the length you'd like the skirt. And remember to wash, dry, and iron your fabric before you begin, since fabric often shrinks! I like to fold my cloth and lay the pattern on top of it so I cut two pieces at once. You can only find the pocket pattern on freshly picked--you can find it here (thank you, Susan!) This is where this pattern deviates from Susan's. Whew, this was long!
Sweet Flower Granny Blanket :: Ta-dah! Hello my lovelies, thanks as always for taking time to call in and see me, so happy to have you here. As you can see, we're ta-dah-ing today and I am so happy, it feels to me like this moment has been such a long time coming it really does. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it's spanned across the turn of the year, you know? It makes it seem so long ago when I think about it starting way back Last Year. July to be precise, so six months ago. The thing with this sweet little blanket is that it did in fact turn out to be very fiddlesome and time consuming. This was where I was up to at the end of August. Slowly, slowly, the blanket began to grow. ....and on into October. November saw me put a real spurt into it and I think this is when I really fell in love with it. The sweet flowers pretty much hibernated throughout December as I pushed them aside to make way for snowflakes and stars and the such like. First work a row of UK double crochet. Which I do think it is.
