co Rose Diaries: Hot Water Bottle Cover Tutorial Well........ After such a response from my last post requesting a hot water bottle pattern. I have made one for you. But.......hey.......hold on there before you start whoop whooping and get too excited...... It's a loose pattern What I mean, is that I have given loose instructions on how to make one. For this tutorial I have used a mini hot water bottle. I have made hot water bottles using two methods. For mine, I used Wendy Serenity Super Chunky yarn in Ivory, and a 5.5mm hook. I am also assuming here with this pattern that you know the basics of crochet.........dc, Increase and Decrease. As this is a loosely based pattern and your stitch amounts will probably vary, it is essential to make a note of your rows as you do them, because don't forget, you will need to make 2 sides! So....let's begin...... I made a foundation chain of 12 + 1. Row 1. Row 2. Row 3. ( You should start to see some rounded corners appearing, and they should contour the shape of the hot water bottle at the bottom. xxx

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.

Remembrance Poppy Crochet Project | Emma Leith Get those hooks out…… here’s a free Remembrance Poppy Crochet Pattern. Trying to take photographs of crochet stitches worked in black wool is challenging to say the least! I did upload some but they just looked like black blobs….most unhelpful! This crochet pattern is worked in acrylic dk wool on a 3.75mm hook, but you can use any hook and any wool…..get creative! UK crochet terms. You will need a small amount of black wool and a bit of red. In Black wool: Chain 6 and join to first chain with a slip stitch to form a loop. Chain 3 (counts as your first treble), Work 11 trebles into the centre loop. Change to Red Wool (now I can start showing you in pictures!!!) Work 2 doubles into each stitch. See how we work over the red ‘tail’ – this makes it secure and neat….but don’t worry if you find this too fiddly it’s just the perfectionist in me! You have now worked 24 stitches. Now let’s work our first petal. Work 1 double into the first stitch. You now have 1 double and 8 trebles.

Knitted, Crocheted. Felted Christmas Mushroom Tree Ornaments! The little 'shroom' tree ornament project begun earlier this year is completed! At least until I find another pattern I can not resist! My earliest memories of Christmas include little red and white "Raggedy Ann" mushrooms dangling from the Christmas tree branches - twinkling in the shimmering glow of bubble lights. And although I have managed to find a few glass 'shroom' ornaments over the years, I definitely wanted more "Raggedy Ann 'shrooms" on my tree!! Thanks to several brilliant designers I have 8 lovely fiber versions to hang this year! Four Crocheted Mushrooms - clockwise from upper left: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. For now, i am sharing this little 'shroom' ball! Trust me, once you practice the ball pattern a couple times, making Christmas balls becomes addictive - which is good! Thank you to all the designers linked above for sharing your talent and designs.

Annaboo's house: Why did the Toadstool leave the party? Because there wasn't mushroom !! Oh dear. So sorry, but couldn't resist. *ahem* Moving on.... Who wants to make a toadstool? You do? Yay! I have two patterns for you. Both are worked in the same way- amigurumi-style (in the round) from the top down, in one piece (I am a true lazy crocheter, as you should know by now, so no fiddly joining) You will need: Yarn of your choice and a hook to match (this is a great stash-buster, as you only need little bits) I used RICO Creative Cotton and a 4mm hook Stitch Marker Toy stuffing Tapestry (blunt needle) Felt (for base) PVA or similar glue Stitches and Abbreviations: I use US terms, so single crochet is the same as UK double crochet here. Chain (ch) Single crochet (sc) Stitch (st) Single Crochet 2 Together (sc2tog) To single crochet 2 together: Insert hook into next stitch. Yarn over, pull up a loop. (2 loops on hook) Yarn over, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook) Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops. PATTERN (small toadstool) (beginning with top and working down) 3. 4. 5.

How to Crochet Autumn Leaves to Decorate Your Table September 7th, 2012 Email 123 users recommend Try making the leaves in different sizes and yarns for different effects. The two solid colors are worked in Cascade 220 with a size F (3.75-mm) hook, and the variegated version is leftover sock yarn and a size 3.0-mm hook (Japanese size D). Linda Permann To make a picot, chain 3 and slip stitch in the 3rd chain from your hook. After you chain 5, skip the first chain from your hook and work 4 single crochets into the opposite side of the ch-5 you just made.

Pattern for Crochet Acorns and Fantastic Ways to Use Them | Squirrel Picnic Hodge and Eric showed us over the last few weeks how acorns are a treasured gift among squirrels, but I think the crocheted variety could come in handy for us humans too. Below are some unique and creative ways you might use these acorns. And, as always, here’s the free pattern to make your very own! My pattern includes instructions on making a cap and a bottom, which you sew together to form an acorn. If instead you don’t sew the cap to the bottom of the acorn, you’ll have a unique gift box in which to hide a little present. Add acorns to a fall wreath or mantel display. Crochet your acorns in holiday colors or all white and hang them on your tree or display them in a decorative bowl on your coffee table. String a cord through the stem and wear the acorn as a necklace. Use bright colors and a crochet hook size H-8 (5.0 mm) or larger to make an acorn like Eric’s bioengineered one. Crochet Acorn Pattern Materials: Instructions: Acorn Bottom With light brown yarn, ch 2. Acorn Cap Acorn Stem
