Rainbow mitts for Maia Maia started back at preschool this week and because its so wintery I wanted to make her some new fingerless mitts. The beauty of fingerless mittens is in their simple design… there really is nothing easier to crochet than a small rectangle in Half Double Crochet (HDC). These fingerless mittens are sure to brighten any little girl’s day! Easy Crochet Fingerless Mittens Tutorial (sized for a 4-5 year old) Using a 4mm crochet hook and DK (8ply) yarn of your choice.

Winterberry Headwrap. I love this headwrap. It works up in about 30 minutes (depending on how fast you crochet). It is made with Homespun yarn, so it feels nice and warm. For this pattern I dropped a couple hook sizes, from what I usually work with for this yarn, to give a bit of a warmer/tighter stitch. Have you tried using Lion Brand Homespun? I promise, it gets easier! Ok, now for the Winterberry Headwrap pattern. :) This headwrap is "one size fits most". You may not copy, change, or sell my patterns in part or in whole. What you will need: Lion Brand Homespun Yarn I hook Scissors Yarn needle Abbreviations: ch-chain dc-double crochet sl st-slip stitch Ch 16 Row 1: 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across. To join, Ch 1, sl-st first and last row together. For the flower I used my 3 Layer flower pattern with Homespun yarn and an I hook.

Star Seams: a New Paper-Pieced Star, If You Dare One evening while perusing a catalogue, I found a shape that I wanted to try replicating in fabric: this mirror. I love the look of outlined stars (evidence: Lone Starburst), and immediately had visions of this new paper-pieced specimen. This new 12.5-inch (unfinished) block, which I call Star Seams, was born. I tried it out first with some lovely scraps... And then twice again with more limited, deliberate selections. The template looks quite neat on paper. I discovered that you have to be very careful with this template, and since I'm not the most careful sometimes, I had a few oopses. I don't love the process of paper-piecing. While I haven't been able to create the perfect exemplar yet (and may never...), here are the (free) templates I came up with if you're an intrepid crafter. Instructions: print 2 copies of the pattern to have 2 templates for each piece, A to F. Once each piece is complete, 1. join A -> B, C -> D, and E -> F, matching up outside edges and corners. 2. then AB -> CD,

Sols(tr)ikke Sirkel i kvadrat… Circle in a square... Her skal eg prøve å skrive ned ei oppskrift. Det finst sikkert mange forskjellige måtar å lage bestemorruter som dette, men her er min metode. Håper de gir beskjed dersom noko er vanskeleg å skjøne. (Heklespråket er lettare å lese enn å skrive ned… ) ETA: You can find an all English version of the pattern here. I will try to translate this to English. (Follow the link to pages explaining the stitches.) Start: Hekle 5 lm, samle til ein ring m 1 kjm i første lm. Start: make 5 ch, join with ss into a ring. 1. runde: 4 lm (=1 st,1 lm), 1 st + 1 lm 11 g. 1st round: 4ch (=1dc,1ch), 1dc + 1ch 11 times. 2. runde: Start i ei av lm-buene. 3 lm (=1 stav), 1 st, 1 lm, *2 st, 1 lm* i resten av lm-buene. 2nd round: Start in one of the ch spaces. 3 ch (= 1dc), 1dc, 1ch, *2dc, 1ch* in the remaining ch spaces. 3. runde: Start i ei av lm-buene. 3 lm (=1 st)+ 2 st i lmb, 1 lm, *3 st,1 lm* i resten av lm-buene. Eg likar samlebandsmetoden, så eg heklar opp ein haug med sirklar før eg tar siste runda.

Crochet Tutorial: Mermaid Tail Afghan Pattern—3 Sizes (Small: Child, Medium: Teen, Large: Adult) | YARNutopia by Nadia Fuad Several weeks ago, a few of my friends contacted me showing me a photo they found online of a mermaid blanket.
