Crochet School

Crochet School
Sorry I've taken so long to post this very last post of the crochet school series. Would you believe me if I said I don't want it to end? haha That's not the real reason, although it is a little weird to be writing the last crochet school post (for now). I've just been busy designing new patterns and crocheting my butt off for the craft show I'm in next month, Deluxe. I was also waiting for all of you to have time to put in questions you want answered in this post. Let's cover those questions first: Carly asked "I think you mentioned that you can weave in ends with a hook. Hi carly, Since you're making a blanket, I would probably just try to find a bigger needle. Nia asked "I understand how to make the corners when seaming horizontally but what about vertically.. do we skip the corners and just seam the sides? Since you only do one corner from each side when seaming horizontally, you'll pick up those other two corners when you to the vertical stitches. Don't be afraid to ask for help!

How to cut glass I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string. I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is. FINALLY! You will be able to learn how to cut glass. Sloane Hat – crochet pattern release! Today’s the day! The Sloane Hat crochet pattern is now available! Woot! It comes in sizes baby to adult large, and it’s perfect for a boy or a girl. Which is why I named it the Sloane Hat…since Sloane works for a girl or a boy. Painting Lilies newborn pointy hat There’s something so satisfying about knitting baby items. They’re as close as it comes to instant gratification with knitting.

Free knitting patterns I knit this stocking flat A) because I don't enjoy knitting in the round andB) because I think it gives greater flexibility in working fairisle and other intarsia designs. I tend to work it on double pointed needles because during heel shaping you need to switch from working one side to the other. You can knit it on regular needles but slide the work across onto a second needle at appropriate time. Apart from the stocking top it is worked in stocking stitch (knit on right side and purl on reverse)

25 Free Beginner Knitting Patterns Take a second and think back to when you first started knitting. Were you intimidated by difficult techniques? Was it hard to find patterns at your skill level? Free Crochet Patterns, Crochet Cowl Patterns, and Free Knit Patterns Last weekend (March 14 – 16th), I attended the 10th annual Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival in Cranberry, PA. I’d heard of the festival before, but was never in town to attend. The festival attracted over 70 different booths and some big name teachers. I talked to the coordinator, Barb, and she said there were well over 3,000 attendees. Not too shabby for a knitting festival! From my perspective, the festival was largely geared towards knitters, but I didn’t mind – it seems to be the preferred craft among fiber artists (don’t worry, crochet, you’ll always be my first love).

Braided Rag Rug pin your three sewn strips anywhere you can be comfy (you are going to be there for a while! i did mine to my runner on my dining room table) this is the start of your braid. once you get close to the end of your braid you are going to fold over the end of your strip and snip with your a slit. grab the end of your new strip (the end without the slit) and pull through both slits (from behind) this will adjoin your strips and you will be able to continue your braid
