Finding little to not-much on the internet for tatting with crochet hook, I dreamed up this little design. I used No. 10 cotton, and a cro-tat hook for that size thread. For the "crochet" functions, you will use the hook. Begin with a normal first crochet loop. Begin the Ring (R) on the shaft of the hook: A tatting stitch is a two-part double hitch stitch (ds). Second half of the double hitch stitch (ds): wrap the thread over finger from the back as shown, pick thread up and off the finger onto shaft; slide loop thus made down to the first half of the stitch. Make another double hitch stitch (ds). Now make a picot (p). To complete the ring: Do (double hitch stitch, picot, double hitch stitch or [ds,p,ds] ) 3 times, then another double hitch stitch (ds).

Owl be Green! - Upcycled owl purse My 13-year-old daughter is huge into owls right now, so I thought I would make her an owl purse for Christmas. Ssshhh! Being the thrifty-green sort, I found a wool tweed suit jacket that had seen better days. The moth holes on the collar and ripped up lining made it undesireable... not to mention the ginormous elbow patches and the leather braid buttons. So... old wool jacket, wool scraps, thread, and dye on hand, and those nifty leather buttons from the coat - all I needed was some lining fabric. Ugly, worn coat - wash and dry! Start cutting! And embroidering and appliqueing... Waste not, want not! Sew it all together and stitch in the lining. To anyone who plans on making one: I used a really stiff fusible interfacing on the tweed, to keep it structured. When you do the lining, Leave the bag right side out, with the lining inside out. If you can think of a better way to line it, please share. =)

Double Knitting - Knitting Community Double knitting is the exception to many knitting rules. You can double knit a stockinette scarf, and it will lay flat instead of curling. Color knitting will be reversible, showing a negative of the image on the back of the work instead of floats. How is this possible? Double knitting produces a fabric with the right sides showing on both sides of the work. This technique is fun to do and produces a thick fabric that is ideal for winter accessories, hot pads, and there are even patterns for double knit sweaters! Cast on Cast on with double the number of stitches The cabled cast on is great for double knitting because it creates a flexible edge. Cast on with yarn held double You could also use the cast on of your choice, but with the yarn held double. How to Double Knit Single color double knitting instructions Double knitting with one color in the front and one color in the back Bring both yarns to the front and purl the next stitch with only the contrast color

Boden Boulevard Necklace Knockoff Did you know Mother’s Day is about a week and half away?? Eek!! I don’t know about you but I’m scrambling a bit here. ;) So I thought I’d help you out. Actually, Melissa and I are helping you out. :) Melissa sent in a Tutorial Request for a darling Boden Necklace – and I knew that it would be perfect for a Mother’s Day idea. Or a “I’m going to make that myself for Mother’s Day” idea. ;) Here is my version of the prettiness - And here is the Boden version – with a crazy retail value of $78 - I like the navy they used but I went for a more neutral color scheme. This necklace is super easy!! Here’s what you’ll need to make it: twill or other ribbon (approx 50″) large link chain (you’ll need a piece about 13″ long) bead assortment – enough for 5 13″ strands beading cord crimp beads (10) (All supplies came from Michael’s) :) Start by weaving your twill piece through the links of the chain. Continue weaving the twill through until the chain piece is centered in the twill. Pretty cute already huh?
