grumpygirl: Tutorial: The amazingly flat crochet seam Alrighty then, here goes. Works best with contrast colours. And a smaller hook. Step 1. Prepare to be amazed. Springtime Wreath This is my design for a little Springtime Crocheted Wreath. The pattern/tutorial that I'm writing out here is for the circular green part of the wreath, and the general putting together of the whole thing :: you can use whatever flowers you like to adorn it with (the flowers I've used here are my Little Picot Flowers, pattern found here). I've hooked my wreath on a 4mm hook, using Rowan handknit DK cotton. The wreath measures approx 15 cm/6 inches across.
DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage.

Crochet Dilly Bag Pattern In response to further requests, I've endeavoured to write a pattern for the crochet dilly bag. A much more difficult project, both for me to write and for you to make. To keep it as simple as possible, the pattern is for a smaller version of the large bag previously shown.This bag measures 15" (37.5cms) in circumference x 8 " (20cms) in height, an ideal size for a young girl, and also useful on many occasions for a big girl. Large enough to hold a phone, medium purse and glasses, keys plus other small belongings.The yarn can be any sturdy acrylic, wool or cotton. 8 ply and a 3.50mm hook were used.Because of the stitch variations, a plain colour would also look nice. Abreviations : As before, I've used English/Australian terminology, with some abreviations such as ch = chain, dc = double crochet, tr = treble, sl st = slip stitch, st = stitch, sp = space.BASE : make 5 ch, join with sl st to form a ring.Round 1 : 3ch (counts as 1tr), 14tr into ring.
Sliding loop : an easy way to begin granny square! The double sliding loop is my favorite way to begin a granny square. I find this method fabulous as I can make the beginning ring the size I want. I worked it with a double ring as I find it more safe and easier to weave in end the tails.
