You Can Crochet With Sheets I don't know about you, but this is my perfect vision of summer! Well of course I'd like to be sitting next to a beautiful lake with an iced coffee, but for now I'm quite happy sitting next to our largish wading pool with a gorgeous mountain view beyond. You see, when you need to watch your kids in the pool, there's nothing better than a little (or a lot in my case) crocheting! In fact I'm probably the only mother begging her kids to get into the pool, so that I can have an excuse to relax with my current favorite craft! If you're wondering what ever happened to the crocheting with t-shirt yarn, well suffice it to say I ran out of yarn, and my little rug turned out to be so lopsided that I had to tear about 1/3 of it out. Not to worry, you'll see the results sometime. Now before you start dreaming of crocheted rugs everywhere, I should tell you that you'll need quite a few sheets! You'll Need: How To: Remove all elastic from fitted sheets and cut corner seem so you'll have a flat piece.

amigurumi I made this little guy as a belated birthday gift for a friend, and I thought I should post the pattern! It's a great beginning amigurumi pattern because if it comes out a little wonky it's fine, because it's a mushroom, and they're all a little wonky in real life, right? I think it would be super cute with white pins in the top too so it can me useful. I was also playing with the idea of doing a "How I Make Amigurumi" photo or video tutorial using this pattern, might be fun... Mini Mushroom Amigurumi Pattern This pattern is worked in a continuous spiral, so be sure when you need to skip stitches for decreasing that you skip the very last stitch, which will simultaneously put down the first stitch of the next round, so you'll get the correct number of stitches. Size US G7 (4.5mm) Hook, smaller is fine. Peaches & Creme or Sugar & Creme 100% cotton worsted weight yarn in cream and 191 Peppermint Small amount of batting 5 glass pebbles or rocks Start with Peppermint colored yarn.

Joining Amigurumi When making amigurumi, you will often need to join an open-ended crocheted piece (e.g. the top of a leg or tail or a muzzle) to a closed crocheted piece (e.g. the body or head). Sewing these together neatly can be tricky and can make the difference between a cohesive finish and an untidy messy join. In this tutorial I will demonstrate the method I developed for sewing pieces together neatly, with an almost invisible join. Both pieces are usually the same colour, but, for the purpose of this tutorial, I will be joining an open-ended brown piece (right) to a closed grey piece (left): You will usually have a long yarn end left over from the open-ended piece to sew the two pieces together. Hold the two pieces together in their final position, with the yarn end towards you. Begin the first stitch into the main piece, just outside the place where the two pieces touch: Draw the yarn all the way through so there is no slack, but do not pull it overly tight. I hope you find this tutorial useful!

How To Crochet: Broomstick Lace You can use a very large knitting needle for bigger loops and you can create different rows with different size stitches. The only stitch that you need to know is single crochet, can you believe it? For this tutorial, I used my favorite crochet thread in size 3 with a size C crochet hook and a size 17 knitting needle. The usual grouping of stitches is 4 to 6. Your initial chain will vary in length depending on how many groups of stitches you want to make. Chain 20. Insert crochet hook into each chain, yarn over and bring the loop up onto the knitting needle. You should now have 20 loops on your knitting needle. In groups of 5, gather the stitches off the knitting needle. Now begin to draw up your working yarn and chain 1 to close the group. Now make 5 single crochets in the space for the gathered stitches. Continue across row gathering 5 stitches, and making 5 single crochets in each group. Now 4 groups of 5 stitches made. Hook a loop onto your knitting needle at the working end of your row.
