Crochet Bag Pattern

Crochet Bag Pattern
Way back in July, you may remember me making this bag. It's my own design, made on a whim and I was/am absurdly proud of it. It has received much admiration when I jaunt about with it on my shoulder, and it has proven to be a very practical bag for stashing yarn in. Very Crochety indeed.I've had countless emails and requests for this pattern, and in truth I have been putting it off a little. Well more than a little, seeing as it is now more than three months down the line. First some yarn info :: I used Debbie Bliss yarn, called Merino Aran. Now before we begin, can we just clarify the difference between UK and US terms :: this bag is made using a UK treble crochet (tr) stitch, which is equivalent to US double (dc). For the very first round you will work out of the central ring, but for all other rounds, work out of the stitches. Round 1 :: chain 3 (counts as 1 tr), then work 10 more treble stitches INTO THE RING. Round 2 :: slip stitch into first tr stitch to begin. xx Thank you xx

Hearts and Twigs Awwwwwwww teeny tiny little hooky hearts, so cute you gotta love 'em! I've made dozens of these hearts in the past week or so, I think I've developed a slight addiction to be honest. The thing is that they are so quick and easy to make, it's near impossible to make just a few. You start out with just a few but before you know it you've made a small stack, then a handful, then a whole heap. They multiply in front of your very eyes. They are very dinky look...I made mine using Rowan handknit cotton DK and a 4mm hook, and they came out measuring about 4cm across and 4.5cm from top to bottom. ........I've had a play with little crochet hearts a few times in the may remember this one from way back last year? So off I trotted to find out more at Meme Rose blog, and discovered a lovely happy place where lots of happy hooky happens. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cutesy, dinky, sweet little teeny-tiny itsy-bitsy hooky hearts!!! Go on!

Cosy Stripe Blanket I am addicted to making blankets and I think much of the appeal lies in finding a pattern that delivers a huge amount of feel good throughout the making process. The very act of crocheting row upon neat row of glorious colour is so therapeutic and relaxing that I never want it to end. Having said that though, it is pretty fabulous to end up with a beautiful blanket at the end of the journey. This pattern uses just one crochet stitch - Treble Crochet (this is called a Double Crochet in the US). Some notes before we begin........ ♥ I have used 15 x 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK worked on a 4mm hook to make my Cosy Stripe Blanket. ♥ These 15 balls are enough to make a single bed size blanket with a finished size of approximately 4ft x 6ft / 120 cm x 180 cm. ♥ If you crochet loosly, you will need to make sure that your starting chain and first row measures roughly 120cm otherwise you will need more than 15 x 100g balls. ♥ I'm writing this pattern in UK crochet terms, as follows ::

Patterns : Coasters and their Basket thank you for all the enthusiastic replies to the first viewing of the new coasters and their basket ! very encouraging so here they are, the patterns ~ I hope you enjoy making this cute set as much as I did ! might be a perfect make for this weekend, right in time for Easter ? the patterns should be doable for the experienced as well as beginners among you please let me know if you have any questions or if you find mistakes in the pattern it would benefit us all yarn the yarn I used for this set is 3 balls of Martha Stewart's cotton hemp yarn : 65% cotton, 35% hemp that gives it the nice matte finish and little rough look - to me a perfect combination with the girly style of this this design. I used hook size 5mm (8 US) for this yarn and it is washable on 40C, not unimportant for coasters I figure. The colors I got from Molly are blue icing, sour cherry and picnic green, but there are many more combinations of three colors possible. stitches used chain - yarn over and pull through loop on hook

Crochet Daisy Afghan Well folks, HERE IT IS!! It's finally finished! I decided to make this a smaller blanket (mostly because I lost patience after the first 10 squares), measuring about 2ft x 3ft. Kudos to those of you who make large granny square afghans, I don't know how you do it! Thanks to my family who has been living under mounds of yarn and yarn scraps and who have been watching me walk around with this project, using every spare moment to crochet. If you do have the time to make one of these blankets, it would be an absolutely wonderful baby gift or perfect for a little girls room. I hope you have enjoyed the series of tutorials posted so far and will be inspired to make your own Daisy Afghan! Materials used: • Worsted Weight Yarn • Size H Crochet Hook • Tapestry Needle Goldfish, Pink, Lamb, Sweet Pea, Mustard, White. Now lets go over the border. Starting at any place on the edge of your afghan, attach white yarn, ch 1 and SC around the enter edge, join to your first SC.

{ WIP Wednesday } Here are my Work In Progress projects this week… Well I have plenty to work on as far as crochet and Christmas projects! First off, I am making some Christmas colored Woman’s Hats. I am not sure what I am going to do with them yet! I am thinking I will just put them in the Etsy shop and see what happens. I just love this red and off white color I caught Hailey trying one on last night. Next I am making two more ear warmers. I love making these! **Speaking of this pattern, I have been getting a lot of comments and emails about it. Lastly, I get to make three awesome sock monkey hats! I made this one for my older nephew last year. I also have some other projects I hope to try when I get some orders done. Have a great day everyone Link up! Afhechten, kleur wisselen en aanhechten Ik ga een rond haakwerk maken, dat elke toer van kleur wisselt. Bij veel haakwerk zie je waar de wisselingen zijn. Ik probeer het zo onzichtbaar mogelijk te doen. Ik ga hier laten zien, hoe ik dat doe. Je ziet op deze foto een gehaakt rondje. In de meeste beschrijvingen moet je de ronde afsluiten met een halve vaste boven op het eerste stokje, dat is gevormd door 3 lossen. Ik doe dat niet. Nu steek ik de haaknaald door de bovenkant van het 2e stokje (in dit geval de eerste steek na de 3 beginlossen): En ik trek de draad erdoor: Nu steek ik de haaknaald door de voorste lus van het laatste gehaakte stokje: En ik trek de draad er door: De naald steek ik door dezelfde steek van achter naar voren: En trek de draad erdoor: Het ziet er nu uit als een normaal gehaakte steek. Het draadje zit aan de achterkant, dat kan je later wegstoppen. Het aanhechten van een nieuwe kleur. Ik maak een lus aan de haaknaald, zoals een beginlus van elk haakwerk: En haak een stokje: Zo zien alle stokjes er hetzelfde uit en ook het

Gehaakte vaatdoek met patroon Een klant kocht in onze winkel een handdoek en theedoek en wilde in een bijpassende kleur een vaatdoekje hebben. Dat hadden we niet, dus ik riep: Ik brei er wel even eentje. Helaas kon ik zo snel geen dikke katoen vinden in een goede kleur, wel katoen nummer 8, maar dat wordt zo'n dun vaatdoekje als je dat gaat breien. Dus toen ben ik op zoek gegaan naar een haaksteek met "body". En dat kwam er zo uit te zien. Het is een lekker dik vaatdoekje geworden met een ruitjespatroon, ik vond het wel leuk ouderwets. Ik heb het vaatdoekje als volgt gemaakt: 61 lossen opzetten. Toer 1: De eerste 3 lossen tellen als 1e stokje. Toer 2: 3 lossen om te keren. Zo dus. Dan weer twee gewone stokjes haken. En dan weer een stokje om het onderliggende stokje haken en weer twee gewone stokjes. Deze drie steken steeds herhalen. Toer 3: 3 keerlossen haken. Hier zie je het gewone stokje, wat een beetje naar achteren ligt. Zoals je ziet ziet de achterkant er anders uit.
