Crochet Pattern - Jar cosy ... I first tried these back in February and used this pattern by Nature Nut Notes, and I recently came across this lovely granny jar cover pattern by Meanyjar, but I was greedy and wanted to try more! I played around with a couple of different stitch patterns I'd wanted to try out and the one I was most taken with was the arcade stitch. I really enjoyed this stitch, so I thought I'd have a go at making a jar cosy using it. I loved the way they turned out so I've attempted to write out the pattern below :) This is the first cosy I made, I used crab stitch to finish off the top. I then got filled with Christmas spirit and thought these would be a great way to decorate bottled gifts, I used the Jolly Holly pattern from Lucy at Attic24. And these are the cosies I have created a pattern for - I hope you like them as much as I do - but if not I've added a picture of them looking all warm and glowy to try and win you over ;) Crochet Jar Cosy Pattern download now Hook: 3.5mm Stitches: Slip Stitch = Ss

Crochet Cuffed Baby Booties Pattern I started playing around with my Crochet Rain Boots pattern and adapted it into these cute little cuffed booties! Enjoy the the pattern and be sure to follow my instructions on where to start, end and join your rounds since it is different than the rain boots pattern! Always begin your rounds in the same stitch as your chain. In rounds 2-5 you will end your rounds in the same stitch as your chain. So technically you will be adding an extra stitch to each round. I have found that this helps keep the heal flatter. Crochet Cuffed Baby Booties Size: 6-12 months Supplies: Vanna’s Choice® medium worsted weight yarn in two colors Crochet hook size G-6 (4.0 mm) tapestry needle for weaving in ends Buttons for embellishments Abbreviations: ch – chain SC – Single CrochetHDC – Half Double Crochet *** You may make and sell products from my patterns but if you do I ask that you link back to my post.

L definition name Knowing the definition name of a child will assist in matching the chosen name with their compatible star sign. The name origin, it's meaning, and the star sign under which the child was born, all contribute insight into the qualities and personality traits this child may possess. My favorite top 5 “L” names are as follows – Girl’s Baby Names – Lacy, Lachelle, Layla, Lara, Larissa – Definition Name - From Greek origin meaning “cheerful, grateful.” Boy’s Baby Names – Liam, Lindsay, Lewis, Lucas, Lyle – Definition Name - From French origin meaning “from the island.” Work the baby’s definition name onto your child clothing or baby toy making your baby gift unique. The free monogram patterns available here may be worked in lighter weight yarn or thread, depending on the finished size required. If the terminology used in this pattern differs from what you're used to, check my equivalency tables for easy conversion. Capital Letter “L” Pattern Materials: 8ply yarn, 3.50mm crochet hook. Work 14ch.

Beaded Chains Bracelet and Necklace If you’re having difficulty at Row 13 “end the row with ch sts”, this means that you end the row not with beads but rather with 3 or 5 or so chain stitches. The bracelet looks nicer if the beads weren’t directly next to the placket.Thanks, Laurie, for raising this question! The April CAL at the Ravelry Group on Crocheted Jewelry is Gene Pascual’s 7-Days Summer Bracelet. When Merri posted one of her projects on the group I saw that it was a beaded version of Gene’s bracelet. The chain and beaded chain design is a very versatile one and from the photos, it is possible to come up with your own pattern. Below is the pattern for my Beaded Chain Bracelet.

Heidi Hedgehog Several months ago I had been given some James C Brett Vixen yarn - I had no idea when I would ever use it. Then it came to me, this is destined to become a hedgehog or two. Apparently the yarn is discontinued but it is an eyelash yarn - whatever that means. I was so pleased with the end result that I have copied the pattern here, so anyone can make a cute friend for themselves. Yarn – Double knitting oddments in beige and black. PATTERN (English terms used) English dc = US sc Finished size – approximately 14 cm (5½ inches) in length.

Linda Cyr LOVES yarn | When Linda Cyr was 5 years old, her mother (out of desperation to keep two active children occupied) taught her how to knit. Fast-forward many years. Linda graduated with an engineering degree from Princeton and entered the corporate world. Following the birth of her second child, Linda gracefully exits the corporate world.

Granny Square Pattern I have been asked to share my granny square pattern and since I customized my version from various patterns I thought I'd jot it down. My pattern is a smorgasbord of bits and pieces and came about after many yarn trials and abandoned grannies. I am sure this one is not a new one however and must exist somewhere? Hope it makes sense and enjoy! Chain 4 and join into a ring with a slip stitch. ROUND 1: Ch 3, work 11 dc's around and join to third chain of beginning chain with a slip stitch. (12 dc's total) Cut yarn and pull through. ROUND 2: Ch 3, work 1 dc in between 2 dc's of previous row. ROUND 3: Ch 3, work first corner (dc1, ch2, dc2) between dc of previous row, then work 2 dc's in between each of the next 2 dc spaces from previous row. Weave in all those annoying and pesky yarn ends. Still working on my blanket in progress, below.
