Crochet Pattern - Chunky Bobble Bows These bows are great because they can be added to virtually anything. I sewed on some brooch backs that had crocodile clips attached (I'm not sure what these are called but I found them on eBay). This meant I could use them to decorate cushions, cardigans, hats, scarves, coats or even hair clips without having to commit to sewing them on! The bows measure around 19/20cm and are best made using super bulky/chunky weight yarn and a smaller hook than recommended. I found this the best way to get a nice firm bow that doesn't curl in on itself. Lion Brand Notebook - Part 2 Archive for the 'Crocheting' Category 6 Quick & Easy Patterns for July 4th Celebrations!

Decoding Decreases by Sandi Rosner For a sweater to take shape in a form other than your basic rectangle, you’ll need to add and/or subtract some stitches along the way. In the Winter issue, we explored a variety of ways to increase the number of stitches on your needles. Since most garment shaping requires the use of decreases as well as increases, in this installment, we’ll look at different types of decreases. Note: The instructions that follow assume you knit in the Western style, where the leading leg of your stitch sits in front of the needle. If you are an Eastern style or combination knitter, you will need to modify these instructions.

Increasing Your Options by Sandi Rosner It is entirely possible to make a sweater without ever increasing or decreasing the number of stitches. Four plain rectangles can be sewn together to make a perfectly serviceable covering for your upper body and arms. Most of us, however, prefer our garments to bear some relationship to the shape of the body underneath. Producing such garments requires a working understanding of increases and decreases. In this article, we will take an in-depth look at increases.
