Lily Pad Hexagons...
Hello from not so sunny Scotland! I haven't forgotten you all, it's just taken me longer than expected to get organised, and I also wanted to have something good to share....... but first.... Scotland in the rain is lovely; I'm really enjoying my new job and I love my new home. This is the view from my kitchen window - and these were my moving in treat to myself... I can see a loch from my bedroom window, but I'm not taking any pics until I can get out there when the sun is shining, and that has only happened so far while I've been at work. Now enough of the necessities of life and on to the good stuff! And if you look from the side I think they look rather like lily pads...... Now I'm aware that my instructions for the puffed daisy hexagon has stumped some readers who are not quite as experienced in the crochet techniques required, so I have produced a photo-heavy tutorial below that I hope can be followed by all.

le crochet géant! Bon, vous aviez bien compris, malgré vous peut-être, que nous sommes dans une période crochet . C’est comme ça, ça ne s’explique pas, c’est l’air du temps… Et dans la grande tendance CROCHET il y a une niche encore plus chouette: le crochet géant . (photos trouvées sur Pinterest) Pour le crochet géant , c’est bon, le sourcing est désormais accessible, chez brutalux (clique) : si vous avez envie de vous y mettre, voici quelques pistes pour commencer (avant le tapis, plus ardu): les cols rapides et graphiques, les corbeilles et les poufs… pour les corbeilles voir ce blog par exemple : En ce qui concerne les poufs, voici ce que j’ai réalisé récemment, en crochetant en même temps 3 grosses pelotes (pour ce pouf de 70cm de diamètre il faut 15 pelotes) au crochet n°20. et enfin le plus facile et le plus rapide, les cols, il suffit de 3 pelotes de laine n°6. Il faut monter 25 mailles puis crocheter un tube en mailles serrées. Vous aimerez peut-être aussi :

A Better Granny Rectangle « crochet again Well, I think it is better : ) As I said before, in my other Granny Rectangle post (don’t go there, I think this one is better), I have always been unsatisfied with how the center of granny rectangles line up in the middle, instead of alternating like it does in the rest of the fabric. It seems weaker and is not as pleasing to me, I just don’t like it : ) Don’t know why I didn’t do it this way the first time I got the idea, but at least I thought of it now. For the size I did in the example: Ch 22 Ch 21 (corrected 8-24-13) In the 6th chain from the hook, 3dc. In the space on the end created by the dc and foundation ch; 2dc, ch3, 3dc, ch3, 3dc. 2 corners on the end made. 3dc in each space between across… At the next end; in the ch 5 space 3dc, ch3, 3dc, ch3, 3dc to make the corners on the other end. Now, go across the other side, making 3dc in each space between… Slpst into the top of the beginning ch3 and there you have it! Like this: Like Loading...

crochet house shoes sur Etsy, la plateforme de vente internationale du fait main et du vintage. Puffed Daisy Hexagon Season's Greetings! I'm sorry that it has been a while since my last post, but I've had some technical gremlins here that have kept me off-line! It's been wet, wet, wet here for so long that I've forgotten the last completely dry day we've had – mainly miserable rain, but mixed with some snow for the last few days. Not pleasant to be out in, but the perfect excuse to stay by the fire and crochet! I'm still bobbling along, but the rounds seem to take an age to complete now, so I can only manage one or two rounds at a time... Of course, my itchy fingers have needed something smaller and quicker to create between marathon rounds so some experimenting was in order. Puffed Daisy Hexagon - FOR A PRINTABLE PDF OF THE PATTERN CLICK HERE. I despair when I read my patterns; if any of you manage to decipher it/them you deserve a medal! Anyway, I'm obsessed with these at the moment, so enough typing, I'm getting back to bobbling. xx

Crocheted Linen Grocery Tote It's always a good time to eschew the plastic bag in favor of an earth friendly one. My favorite choice is the netted grocery tote. It has all the conveniences of a plastic bag and none of the detriments. I love that it scrunches up into a tiny ball inside my purse, weighs nothing, and fits more groceries than I can even carry - magic! Our knit version of this bag has been a perennial favorite at Purl (check out Elisa's Nest Tote), so here, finally, is a crocheted option. The Materials 1 skein of Louet's Euroflax Original, 100% linen. The Pattern Gauge 5 1/2 single crochets = 1 inch Finished Size Approximately 17 inches tall x 11 inches wide and very expandable. The Bottom Chain 6 and slip stitch into the first chain to form a ring. Round 1: Make 11 single crochets (sc) into the ring. Note: Mark the first stitch of the next round with a removable stitch marker, safety pin or paper clip. Round 2: Make 2 sc into each stitch of the round. (22 stitches) The Body The Handles

African Flower Pattern I’ve gotten so many compliments, questions, and pattern requests lately about the motif up there in the center of my blog header that I thought I better get a post up about it. Some of you commented that it looks a little like the African Flower motif. Well you are correct! It is the African Flower motif … kinda. What I mean by that is it is only the first 3 rounds of the traditional African Flower pattern. Here’s what you need: 3 colors worsted weight yarnH hooktapestry needle, scissors Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart. Add this pattern to your Ravelry library. Special Stitches: Long single crochet (Lsc): Insert hook in designated space and pull up a loop to height of row being worked, complete as single crochet. With CA, make a magic ring. Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as 1st dc), work 1 dc in ring, ch 1, *2 dc in ring, ch 1, rep from * 4 more times, join in top of beg ch 3, fasten off — 12 dc and 6 ch-1 sps. Here is where I stopped for this project.

fiche52 Changement de tissu Lors de la fabrication de votre tapis, vous aurez à changer de tissu dans trois occasions : si une portion de votre tissu est endommagée (ex. il y a un joint dans le tissu), si votre rouleau est vide ou que vous voulez changer de couleur. Dans un tapis rond, on peut faire un joint n’importe où dans le tapis. Dans tous les cas, la technique est la même : (1) commencer une maille serrée en insérant le crochet dans la maille du tapis, en faisant un jeté et en le passant dans la boucle – bien serrer la boucle sur votre crochet (2) couper ensuite ce bout du tissu en laissant une queue d’environ 6 pouces (3) prendre votre nouveau tissu et le poser à plat, en exposant l’intérieur du tissu vers le haut (4) juxtaposer la queue du tapis sur le nouveau tissu et repliez chaque côté du nouveau tissu fermement pour bien emprisonner le tissu rattaché au tapis (5) Tenir fermement et terminer votre maille serrée, suivi d’une maille en l’air.

{Lily Hexagon} May is considered to be the month of flowers and spring! Although this year it reminds more of summer since the temperatures are quite high here in Greece. I recently found Karen's blog by chance, and started reading away! She has some fantastic patterns which I recommend you check out! One of them was the pattern of the Lily Hexagon which I simply adored and started crocheting away! The pattern uses the bobble stitch which I had never done before but I have to say I'm addicted to it now! Granny Bobble Spiral Hi all, My attempt at a spiral bobble pattern posted here - has been a hit with all you pinners out there, and so I have refined the pattern... Granny Bobble Spiral - And there you have it. It's a bit fiddly at first with lots of ends and loops, but once you get past the 2nd row and the pattern is set the only problem is keeping the 4 balls of wool untangled! Anywho, I hope you like it... Happy crocheting, Karen xx
