Rosie Posie Grannie Square Tutorial What you'll need... Various colours of yarn (I used Patons Smoothie DK) Appropriate size crochet hook for your yarn (I used a 4mm - USA G) Yarn needle for weaving in ends Difficulty: Easy - ★☆☆ Crochet Terms: This pattern is written in UK terms. American terms are given below in green. sp - Space ss - Slip Stitch (Slip Stitch) dc - Double (Single) htr - Half Treble (Half Double) dtr - Double Treble (Treble) WRITTEN PATTERN: Abbreviated instructions for the pattern can be found at the end of the post, if you're happy to work from them alone, free feel to jump to the end right now. Start by making a magic loop and chaining 1. Then make 8 double crochet stitches into the loop. Pull the tail end of the loop up tight so the dc's come into a circle shape. Then make a slip stitch into the 1st dc that you made to close the circle. Next, chain 1 and make 2 dc's into the same stitch you just made your clip stitch into. Continue round the circle, making 2 dc's into each stitch. Fasten off and row one is complete.

Tunisian Crochet How-To… The Bias Stitch Hey folks! It’s time for another Tunisian Crochet Tutorial This one is called the Bias Stitch. I also recommend you practice the Basic Stitch and the Crossed Stitch before trying this one. Let's get going! Chain 15 (or whatever amount you would like for practice) Work the Foundation Row (Same as Basic Tunisian Crochet Stitch here) Row 1 is just like the crossed stitch * Keep all loops on your hook * For Row 1, Skip the next vertical bar of the previous row then skip the NEXT vertical bar. Yarn over And pull up a loop Now you will go to the previously skipped vertical bar. Yarn over and pull up a loop… Now you will continue doing this to the end. As you can see, it looks just like the crossed stitch. Do your return pass to get your vertical bars Row 2 will be the same except at the beginning you will draw up a loop before you start crossing your stitches. Starting Row 2, you will insert your hook into the second vertical bar Yarn over and pull up a loop Yarn over and draw up a loop Insert your hook

something pretty – the pattern | mille makes... about this pattern: i found this pretty picture on pinterest and was totally smitten. after a lot of googling and searching i wasn’t able to find the pattern, so decided to figure the pattern out myself. dottie angel‘s pictures of her thrifty find was very helpful, and i was happy to find out that this is actually a pretty simple pattern, so novices – don’t be alarmed! just go ahead and try it out :) for more pictures, check out this, this or this post. about yarn/hook: any yarn with corresponding hook will do, i find that moving up a hook size from what the yarn says makes a softer material that would work better with a blanket. i’ve made pillows with these squares so that wouldn’t matter so much. i used sandnes duo (dk weight) and hook 4 mm and the square measures 8×8 cm, with garnstudio drops paris (aran) and hook 5 mm one square is a bit over 10×10. first a couple of basics: 2. the first dc on row is made by chain 3 begin with colour of flower. chain 4, make circle with one slip stitch

Itty bitty crochet heart tutorial Here is a super-easy, super-fast project that is ideal for last-minute Valentines. I'm making a whole bunch of these this afternoon while waiting at the doctor's office. I'm making them out of different shades of leftover yarn to add to barrettes for Annalivia's female preschool classmates. If I get really organized, I'll show you what I'm planning for the little boys tomorrow. First, make a magic ring. Then, chain 4. Then inside of the magic ring make 2 triple crochet, 3 double crochet, chain 1, 1 triple crochet, chain 1, 3 double crochet, 2 triple crochet, chain 3. Pull the magic ring tight. Slip stitch to the center of the circle. There you are!

Squaring the Big Circle Tutorial This is going to be my first attempt at writing up one of my own designs. Because there has been a little more interest in the first blanket I made from this pattern, (and the fact that I was so happy with how it turned out), I thought it would be a great excuse to attempt a written pattern/tutorial to share! I think this square (like most crocheted squares) has limitless potential, so I see this as more of a guideline than an exact pattern. Once you get the basic pattern down you can play with colors and joining methods. For example, for the first blanket I made, every circle had a white background and I used the join-as-you-go method that I learned from Sarah London. For the blanket that I'm working on now, I'm making different colored backgrounds and plan on adding a row of single crochet in white on the last round and then sewing the squares together. Ok, on to the pattern! Worsted weight yarn (I used Vanna's Choice) Size J hook Written in US stitch terms

African Flower Square Tutorial Pattern: Made in K-Town by Barbara Please respect my rights as designer: do not sell, share, translate, or publish any parts of my patterns (including pictures) online or elsewhere without my permission. Do not claim this pattern as your own. Material: For my square I used small amounts of Rico Essentials Cotton DK and a 3.5mm hook. Some general notes: For this pattern I use US crochet terms. I did NOT write down the chains at the beginning of each round: for the first stitch in every round, work chains (e.g. 3 chains for the first dc) OR start with a “standing stitch” i.e. join the new color with a slip knot or a simple loop ON YOUR HOOK and just work the first sc or dc as usual. 1st Round: start with a magic ring and work *2dc, ch-1* eight times inside the ring (8 dc-2 groups, 16 dc's). 2nd Round: with a new color work *3dc, ch-1* in each ch1-space around (8x3 dc's) 3rd Round: with a new color work *2dc, ch-2, 2dc* in every ch1-space (8 shells) Enjoy!!

An Introduction to Sun Printing on Fabric It’s been about 25 years since I’ve used sun printing paper but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while! Who knew there was sun printing fabric?! I made this easy little square pin cushion using 8.5″ cotton cyanotype fabric squares and buttons: This applique shirt was so simple… …and I love the extra button detail: The squares I used are the Blueprints on Fabric(pink on blue) shown below: In a nutshell, the 8.5″ fabric squares in the kit are pretreated with a chemical that makes them change color in sunlight. I pinned buttons to the fabric in the shape of a heart: I pinned one of my mother’s old necklaces in place: I layered different types of lace: I used a transparency with a superhero “POW” on it: Stay tuned for more sun printing soon!
