Diagonal Tunisian Crochet Stitch Pattern 101712 by M. J. Joachim Owl Granny Square Crochet Pattern I posted this pattern on my friend Kara's crochet blog, Petals to Picots, back in August in honor of her Granny Month. But I thought I would share it with you again and show you how the owl squares are being used! I made them into an owl bunting for my friend Shannon's owl-themed gender reveal party! It was first displayed over the party food table... But now it sits over her daughters crib! They are expecting their baby girl in early January 2013 :) Luscious One Skein Cowl Recently, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a skein of Lion Brand’s new yarn Unique, in the Grapevine colorway. And it was so yummy I couldn’t wait to turn it into a new pattern! The Luscious One Skein Cowl can be made in just one evening, and I think it’s going to be a staple in my wardrobe – as soon as we get some Fall weather to go with it! Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links. The Luscious One Skein Cowl is just long enough to drape beautifully and frame the face (and keep the chest warm!). If you prefer a longer infinity scarf style, you’ll need another skein or two, but it’s easy to upsize – just add to the starting row by a multiple of 8 sts!
Tropical Delight Square Photo Guide For Rounds 1-9 This beautiful crocheted square is a pattern called Tropical Delight and it was designed by Susan Stevens. The pattern, which has been out of print for some time, was recently made available for free by mellie of Mellieblossom.com. After I made this square, I posted a picture of it on a Ravelry forum thread, where it garnered a lot of interest! But because it is a very, very involved....and challenging pattern, I thought it would be nice to have a photo guide of the first 9 rounds to go along with the pattern. Hopefully... it will make the instructions a little more clear. This is only a photo guide with minimal notes.
an 'ordinarily extraordinary' blanket how to... for me i like to do simple crocheting projects, and this blanket could not be more simpler... i often wish i was the sort to lay out all the yarn before hand, and have some clue as to what one is aiming for. Search Results Three days sweater October 30, 2011 § Super bulky yarn, a big cowl and cables = one great sweater! Pas à pas écharpe/snood au tricotin (ang) Like I said in my previous post, this post has nothing to do with cooking, so look away if you’re not interested. After posting a picture on my Instagram about my recent knitting obsession, I had a couple of people ask me about knitting with the loom. There are tons of tutorials online to learn how to knit using sticks, but not as many using a knitting loom. Since I had a camera and was starting a new project, I figured I’d make my own tutorial if anyone else wanted to learn the easier way to knit.

soda fountain scarf I pretty much adore anything mid-century mod, and this style is happily somewhere in the late 50s and early 60s. It’s got that “quilted” look so characteristic of that era. (You know what I’m talking about – you see “quilted” bowls and console cabinets at West Elm all the time. Well, I do.
