Granny Heart Tutorial
Following my post and pattern for the Grannie Heart Bunting, I thought the hearts would make an excellent starting subject for my first tutorial. So, here we go.

To clarify, the British terms that I have used are below in black and the American terms are given in green in brackets: British (American) Slip Stitch (Slip Stitch) Chain (Chain) Double (Single) Treble (Double) Double Treble (Treble) WRITTEN PATTERN - If you'd like the written directions only, please visit the Cherry Heart Boutique and download the Granny Heart Bunting pattern, which contains the heart instructions.

Crafty Habit: Anthropologie Inspired Tuxedo Scarf Tutorial I saw this scarf on and loved it so much that I decided to make one. It isn't too pricey for non-college students working for $$ (its just $38.) but I thought it would be fun to make my own especially since I've been wanting to sew a scarf since forever. Follow the tutorial to make your very own tuxedo inspired scarf. Materials: 2 yards of knit fabric (It required less than 2 yards but that is what I had, maybe more like 1 and 3/4 yards. Instructions: Using your groovy scissors cut a long strip of your fabric measuring 20 inched wide x 66 inches long (the length of the fabric I bought). Cut smaller strips of fabric 6" wide and long enough to make ruffles to fit scarf (I joined 2.5 66" strips to cover my scarf.This will depend on how tight/loose you want your ruffles to be) (Join the smaller fabric strips to each other by stitching seams at ends to form one long continuos strip. Fold long, wide strip of fabric in half (length ways) and determine middle of this piece.

The Woodstock Blanket I’ve never had to think so much before. As you know, my usual way is to toss a bunch of yarn into a pile, grab whichever one rolls the closest to where I’m sitting, and just start. You know, whatever happens, happens. I more or less abandoned my plan somewhere between the green and the purple and went back to my usual method of just using the next color that looks good, though I did try to maintain the general move from cool to warm. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to move from one color combination to the next. The stitch pattern I used is a version of the Catherine Wheel, called Harlequin, so named (I guess) because an extra ch1 at the top of the clusters makes them square instead of round. Anyway, I also didn’t like the edging the pattern suggested, a simple round of crab stitch, which looked great in the photo, but all the sc-ing into the side of my rows just looked awful and I couldn’t stand it. I love that depending upon how I fold it, it looks like a different blanket!

And I Went With . . . . . . none of the options I was considering in this post. Instead I made this giant crocheted flower for the center of my table. I used this vintage potholder pattern and just kept adding rounds until it was the size I wanted. It's definitely bright and cheerful! And this pattern is really fun to work with not to mention, a great way to use up scraps of yarn.

Fanciful Flower Potholders Introduction: These Fanciful Flower Potholders are made of 100 percent dk weight cottons in bright and bold colors. Cotton is the preferred yarn for potholders because acrylic yarns can melt when handling hot pans or dishes. What to Expect: Your first Fanciful Flower potholder may take a little longer but after that, you can probably crochet one in under two hours. The finished potholder will measure about 7—7.5 inches across. Delights-Gem's Difficulty Rating: Easy Background: While leading my first CAL (crochet a-long) using a different potholder pattern I learned that, while I prefer finer and medium density cottons, most of the participants preferred denser cottons such as Lily's Sugar 'n Cream, Pisgah's Peaches 'n Creme, and Lion Brand Lion Cotton to make their crocheted potholders. Objective: The purpose of this blog page is to lead crocheters through the creation of one (or more) of these Fanciful Flower Potholders. This Fanciful Flowers Potholder pattern is copyrighted.

Blooming Flower Cushion Here is my tutorial showing how to construct this wonderful layered flower and then make it into a Blooming Flower cushion/pillow. First of all I would like to say that this pattern is not my own. I found it via Two Butterflies blog. Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) htr [half treble]:: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US hdc stitch) To begin :: ch 6 and join to form a ring. Round 1 :: Ch 1, then work 15 dc into the ring. Round 2 :: Ch 3 (counts as 1 tr), then work 1 tr into the same st (as above)
