Little boxy pouch tutorial « three bears My latest favourite thing to make, little boxy pouches. It took me almost an entire morning, lots of paper and sellotape and countless cups of tea to figure this out. I’m here to save you the bother. how to crochet a daisy chain necklace My mum described this thing she had seen on someone else, part necklace, part scarf, like a bunch of flowers for your neck and I was really taken with this idea of floral jewels. So after a bit of experimentation I came up with this design. It is simple to make with basic crochet stitches, and could have endless variations both in terms of the yarns and flower styles used to make it but also in the way it is worn. Materials * Yarn – I used Rowan Glace cotton in six different colours, a total of 33 gms. I chose the cotton yarn so it could be worn in summer as well as winter and I looked for something that was fine because I wanted the flowers to be small so they wouldn’t curl up too much.

Since they only have 2 rounds of crochet, thus, they are pretty simple and quick to make. You can use stash yarns or lace threads of various colors to crochet, the finished size depends on what kind of yarn or lace thread you used. I used lace thread and DMC perle cotton #8 which are the stashes from my previous projects of crochet bead necklace and lace trim handkerchief. The lighter / thinner the yarn or thread you use, the smaller the finished piece will be if crochet with a matching hook size.
Crocheted Stash Basket It doesn't take many years of knitting before one day you wake up to realize you have a lot of yarn. So you embark on a striped project campaign hoping to pare down, but end up buying more and more yarn because you don't have exactly the right colors, and finally you face one of knitting's truths: stashes are unbustable. And where there's a stash, there's a storage problem. Instead of heading over to the dreaded Container Store, I decided that I would crochet my own storage unit. I imagined something with the feeling of a handmade basket; I wanted it to be nubbly, beachy and beautiful, and so, I turned to Hand Jive's Rustic Silk.

'Dutch knitting' or Shepherd's crochet This is a technique which I learned from my mother who refers to it as 'knitting'. The technique does not actually use normal knitting needles, not does it use a conventional crochet hook, but a differently shaped, wooden one she calls a 'pen'. I've written this tutorial on request of many avid knitters and crocheters on BurdaStyle and elsewhere who want to learn this variation. A lively debate on the technique and its origins can be found on www.ravelry.com (search for 'Dutch Knitting Pen') where it was established that the technique is probably neither Dutch nor knitting. In honour of my mum I am going to be following our family tradition and continue to call this knitting in this tutorial.
Adding a Crochet Edge to Paper – Valentines & Frames I am so excited to finally share this fun crochet project! For the past month I’ve been trying to come up with a way to use my old 2011 calendars. They were far to pretty to just put in the recycling bin so I decided to recycle them in my own way.
