knick knacks & ric rac just listed 54 swatch bundles in my etsy shop here! each bundle is approximately 1 sq. yd. i end up with a lot of fabric swatch odds and ends from making skirts. these swatch bundles feature sample prints, test ink colors, test dye colors, test fabrics, leftover pieces from print runs and dye lots, prints that i smudged but still have plenty of usable area, and other experimental fun! based on suggestions after the last batch of swatch bundles, i did not trim these pieces, so pieces may have imperfections like uneven printing (light areas with not enough ink, or blurred areas with too much ink), smudges, stray ink or dye spots or small fabric defects. just in time for your holiday crafting, use them for all sorts of projects like patchwork, pouches, coin purses, dolls and more! fabrics are mostly mid-weight cotton twill or duck, and are machine washable and dryable.

Shara Lambeth Designs: Crochet Chain Link Necklace Tutorial Hello friends!

Handspun Yarn Shop and Fiber Art Blog by Neauveau: patterns I thought I'd take some time to write about the issue of copy-catting in the fiber art world. What is copying, how to avoid copying, how to infuse someone else's idea with your talent & aesthetic, and where I personally draw the line on this issue. You must have the right attitude. When I was doing some research on the history of spinning for Lexi Boeger, I was fascinated to learn that wool completely disintegrates after about 3,000 years. We are all standing on the backs of those before us: our teachers, our mentors, our fellow artisans. Consider music: Every pianist uses the same tools: a piano, notes, keys, tempos, pedals, and chords. Can a musician "own" a chord? The same concepts belong to the skills of knitting, crochet, spinning, colorwork, and the entire realm of fiber art. Now that the foundation for my thoughts have been laid, here is how I use other people's ideas & patterns as a springboard for my own: 1. 2. 3. In short: What if I don't want someone to EVER copy my idea?

Coco Rose Diaries Making gloves with i-cord? Genius! Wandering on Ravelry I ended up on a pattern that suggested using the i-cord technique to make fingers for gloves. I found the suggestion simply amazing. I've never made gloves because working the fingers with the 4 needles techniques was too boring event to think. But now I had a hint! My next step was finding exactly how to do it, and that's where nonaKnits entered the scene. Finally I can say goodbye to mittens and welcome back fingers! p.s.It's so easy and fast you can't believe it! Sew Sweet Violet Cloudy Crochet Little Tin Bird » Basic Granny Square Pattern As promised, here is my pattern for the Basic Granny Square. I didn’t invent this pattern in the slightest, (obviously) but I’m going to show you step by step how to make the basic granny square. When I started to learn I couldn’t find a pattern that I could understand easily and so I hope to change that by doing one with lots of pictures :-) This is the pattern I used to make the squares for the Granny Alice blanket (above). For this pattern, you will need to know how to chain stitch, and how to make a UK treble (TR) stitch. This is equivalent to the US double (DC) stitch but I will be using the UK terminology for this pattern. If you don’t know how to make a TR stitch, have a look HERE. I am using Rowan Handknit Cotton DK (and a 4mm hook) to write this pattern as I think it’s easier to see the stitches with cotton than wool.

I-Cord Gloves - 2nd Installment « Spiral Madness | Main | Peaceful Palms Weekly #3 » November 06, 2005 I-Cord Gloves - 2nd Installment When last we met, we were knitting i-cord fingers ala Meg Swansen. Did you knit one with a fox? I-Cord Gloves: Serial Pattern: Installment 2 Previous installments of the I-Cord Gloves serial pattern include: Installment 1 -- In which we kick started the gloves and knit the 10 fingers using Meg Swansen's I-Cord finger technique. Please remember this serial pattern is still in the "prototype" phase and may contain errors. Joining the FingersWe'll be joining the ring, index, and middle fingers together, knitting a few rounds, and then adding in the pinky. The first step is to get the 3 fingers onto the needles: Knitting in the round, join the 3 fingers and close the gaps as follows: Join the pinky to the other fingers as follows: Round 4Needle #1: k6 (6, 7), ssk, k5 (6, 6), k2tog, k7 (7, 8) ==> 20 (21, 23) stitches. I love this technique for finger joining. Comments This is just too cool. Hi!

Daisy Granny Square pattern Hello Lovelies, thank you all so much for your wonderful "Yorkshire" comments. I'm so glad you enjoyed sharing my pictures :0) Here is a photo tutorial of my latest square .Quite a few you you lovelies seemed to like it . I expect there are similar patterns already in existence , but this is my own creation and thought you might like to try it ..... It's a simple pattern . The only part you may find tricky is the puff stitch . Don't worry if you are not familiar with how to do these as I've taken lots of pictures to help you master it. The pattern is written in U.S. terms. using yellow yarn.......... begin by chaining 4 and slip stitch in first ch to join to form a ring........... ch 1 ........ and work 7 sc into ring, the space you want is the bottom space in the picture above ............ I crochet over the loose end as I make my sc stitches , that way you can pull the centre tighter with it if you want slip stitch into first sc to join and fasten off......... yarn over hook 3 loops on hook

Three Beans in a Pod: Retro Circles - The Tutorial I’m calling this a ‘tutorial’ rather than a pattern as I’m not re-inventing the wheel. Although I didn’t work from a pre-existing pattern when making my blanket I know there are many ‘circle in a square’ patterns out there. One from Little Tin Bird that is very similar to what I had done, so I would hate anyone to think that I’m claiming their pattern as my own. Abbreviations: US crochet terms SS- Slip stitch SC- Single crochet HDC- Half-double crochet DC- Double crochet TC- Treble crochet Ch- Chain Select the hook that works well with the yarn you have. Note: Rounds 2-4 worked entirely in the BACK LOOP ONLY. Round 1: Start with a magic circle and chain 3 (counts as first DC), 11 more DC into the circle, tighten circle. Alternatively, if you’re not sure how to do a magic circle you can chain 4, join to make a ring. Round 2: Chain 3, DC into same loop. Round 3: Chain 3, DC into same stitch. Round 4: Chain 3, DC into same loop. * DC in the next two back loops, 2 DC in next. Now make lots more.
