Happy Flower Decoration

Happy Flower Decoration
This is a pattern/tutorial to show you how to make this Happy Flower wall hanging. You can read more about the design and making of the original decoration in this post. I'm using a cotton yarn to make this decoration, it's Rowan Handknit Cotton, a fairly robust DK weight yarn which I work on a 4mm hook. I love using this yarn for decorative projects as although it is soft and lovely to work with, the resulting crochet tends to be quite stiff and holds it's shape well. Plus aren't the colours scrummy?! Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) dtr [double treble] :: yarn over TWICE, insert hook, yarn over, pull loop back through stitch (four loops on hook).

Happy Baby Crochet: Hiding Your Stitch! Crochet Baby Shoes - Photo Tutorial Guide My first love when is comes to crochet is making baby shoes. Happy Baby Crochet actually started as Happy Baby Shoes but then progressed more to hats and photography props. What can I say....I love all baby stuff! I started making baby booties before my first son was born. I love soft sole shoes and wanted to make some of my own colors and designs. Crochet bythehook ww yarn, I hook Gauge is not important to this project, different size hooks and yarn weights yield different size flowers. The pink flower is 5 1/2 inches and the white flower is 5 inches from the edge of one petal to the edge of the opposite petal. Both were made with an I hook and worsted weight yarn.

May Roses This is my pattern for these adorable May Roses, a sweet little floral decoration for all sorts of prettifying projects. Make them into brooches, attach them to hats, bags, hair slides, cardigans. Assemble a whole bunch of them to prettify a tea cosy, a bag, a cushion. String them together to make a pretty floral garland. Stitch them to crochet triangles to make some pretty rosy bunting.

Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me?: Sharing the tea cosy love! Ok, so it started with one tea cosy and now there have been three more! One for a gift, one ordered by a friend and another to pop into my shop. They are just so lovely to make and seeing them sitting together with their different coloured roses makes me smile. I've had quite a few emails asking if I have a pattern for these and until now I'd just made them up as I went along.

Crochetology by Fatima: Layering Lace – Cropped Cami and Bralette In this project, I used an all-over stitch pattern to make a cropped camisole. I worked with that stitch pattern again but this time, I made a gauge swatch and made crochet symbols charts showing the modifications done to the pattern. So here is the basic stitch pattern. It is worked in rows. I want my camisole to be worked in rounds, from the bottom up, seamlessly. Newborn Ballcap Pattern I've made many ballcaps using a light weight baby yarn, however I wanted to use a worsted weight yarn. I adapted the pattern to compensate for the different yarn and wanted to share the end result. I haven't had this pattern tested, hopefully it is clear and error-free. Please contact me if you find any problems with it or have difficulties understanding the directions. Enjoy Newborn Ballcap
