Made in K-town: Little Spring Mandala

Made in K-town: Little Spring Mandala
Pattern: Made in K-Town by Barbara Please respect my rights as designer: do not sell, share, translate, or publish any parts of my patterns (including pictures) online or elsewhere without my permission. Do not claim this pattern as your own. Feel free to sell the finished items you’ve made from my pattern! Material: As usual, I used small amounts of Catania by Schachenmayer and a 2.5mm hook. Some general notes: For this pattern I use US crochet terms. I did NOT write down the chains at the beginning of each round: for the first stitch in every round, work chains (e.g. 3 chains for the first dc) OR start with a “standing stitch” i.e. join the new color with a slip knot or a simple loop ON YOUR HOOK and just work the first sc or dc as usual. I hope I haven't lost you already :) Here we go: 1st Round: start with a magic ring and work (1dc, ch1) 12x inside the ring, fasten off (12 ch1-spaces) 2nd Round (new color): work (1sc, ch2) in every ch1-space, fasten off (12 ch2-spaces) Related:  Crochet Mandalas, Blocks, MotifsStick och virkmönster

interweave I have always felt a lot of stress and anxiety. A ludicrously disproportionate amount, in fact to the amount of actual hardship in my life. It may not be my favorite aspect of my personality, but I’ve learned to find the advantages. One of them is a deep appreciation for the power of busy hands, especially the newest craft in my arsenal, crochet. There are countless stories of the very real healing powers of crochet; stories of crocheting combat veterans, crocheting through long-term illness, and using crochet to help those in need. Don’t get me wrong: I love my other fiber arts too, for a wide variety of reasons including their impact on my mental health. In particular, I have lately become obsessed with crocheting mandalas. I recently decided to sit down and make a deliberate practice of stitching an entire crochet mandala in one night. 1. I chose a night when my roommates were both out of town and I decided to devote some time to the wall hanging I’ve been envisioning for weeks. 2.

Nesting Rainbow Owls | Moji-Moji Design Here’s a set of wide-eyed Rainbow Owls and a mossy nest for them to snuggle up in. Of course you don’t have to stick with the rainbow theme. These little guys would look good in any color combinations. The owls and the leaves that decorate the nest are made with light worsted weight/DK yarn (worsted weight would work just as well) while the nest itself is crocheted up in lightening fast time with super bulky yarn. I like the contrast between the two different weights of yarn. The heavy yarn looks kind of like bark so the nest really did end up looking like it was straight out of the forest. I’ve nicknamed the green owl Kevin as he definitely enjoys being home alone! For the English Language version click on the button below.

Crochet Star Making - A Tutorial. Hello. I have been making crochet stars this week. For no good reason really, just because they're fun to make. So I thought some of you might like to have a bit of crafty fun too. These stars use up tiny amounts of wool, so get your scraps box out! I used a mixture of hot colours.... .....and a nice mix of cool colours. You need to make 10 star 'points' or diamonds ( 5for the front and 5 for the back). You can make your stars bigger or smaller by varying the number of rows or by changing the yarn weight and hook size you use. (leave a long tail at the beginning so you can use it to sew up later) Ch 2 row 1: 2sc into 2nd ch from hook, turn. row 2: Ch1(turning chain) 1sc into first st, 2sc into 2nd st, turn. row 3: Ch1, 1sc into 1st st, 1sc into 2nd st, 2sc into last st, turn. row 4: Ch1, 1sc into 1st st, 1sc into each st across until last st, 2sc into last st, turn. Start decreasing. The decrease pattern is as follows: Ch1, sk1st st, sc into next st and each st across, turn. (see photo above).

beckycafe crochet I recently saw a similar mandala from a German crochet artist and created this tutorial. I am crazy about these colors, and am so pleased at how it turned out. I've just painted a 12 x 12 inch canvas to mount the mandala on so that it can be a piece of crochet wall art! This is my first attempt at a tutorial, so please feel free to comment or question if something doesn't make sense. I'm using US terms. Here goes . . . Create a magic ring, there are lots of great tutorials on the web so I didn't take photos - just google. Round 1: ch 3 (this counts as first dc) then 1 dc, ch 2, then 2 dc. Round 2: slip stitch into the first ch 2 space, ch 3 (counts as frist dc), then 2 dc, chain 2, then 3dc. Round 3: change color, join in any ch 2 space, ch 3 (counts as first dc) 2dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 1, then in next space, 3dc,ch 2, 3 dc (you are stitching 3 double crochet cluster, chain 2, 3 dc cluster in each space around, totaling 6). Round 6: Join new color. Round 7: change colors. Ta-Dah!

איך מכינים חוט לסריגה מחולצת טריקו | סורגות בזמן מה צריך? חולצת טריקו, ישנה ומוכתמת, כזאת שממילא אין בה שימוש, זוג מספריים טובות עיתון מניחים את החולצה על משטח ישר וגוזרים את הקצה שלה (זה שיש בו תפר) אנחנו לא הולכים להשתמש בו מקפלים את החולצה כמו בתמונה, עד שנשארים שוליים של בערך 7 סנטימטרים מהחצי התחתון שלה עכשיו אנחנו מתחילים לגזור. מודדים בערך שתי אצבעות, וגוזרים רצועות עד אחרי הקיפול. ממשיכים עם הגזירה הזאת, עד שמגיעים לקו של השרוולים כשמגיעים לקו הזה, גוזרים את החולצה עד הסוף, בחלק של השרוולים אנחנו לא משתמשים. עכשיו יש לנו מעין "חצאית אינדיאנית" ואותה אנחנו הולכים לגזור בצורה ספירלית ולהפוך, למעשה לחוט, צמר-מחולצת טריקו. "מלבישים" את החצאית האינדיאנית הזאת מעל העיתון, הוא הולך להחזיק אותה (על משטח העבודה) בזמן הגזירה. מתחילים לגזור מצד שמאל. התמונה הזאת ממחישה את המשך הגזירה והנה החולצה גזורה כולה, וכל שנותר הוא למתוח אותה ולגלגל לכדור צמר ככה נראה החוט שגזרנו כשהוא "מבולבל" על הרצפה אוחזים בקצה החולצה ומותחים אותה בקטעים קטנים. מגלגלים לכדור קטן עכשיו אפשר להתחיל לסרוג!

Heart Bunting Super cute heart bunting, just what every home needs! I searched around the internet for a heart shape I liked, round and perfect and hearty enough. Alas I couldnt find one… so I made one up instead. These hearts are made with 8ply cotton and a 4mm hook. 1. 2. Double crochet once into each of the next three stitches, 5 double crochets into the next stitch. So this round goes: 5dc into first stitch, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc-1tr-1dc into next stitch, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 5dc into next stitch, ss into last stitch, when you are done it should look like this: Join your next colour into the ss and chain 1. Repeat as many times as you desire… Cute aren’t they?? If your hearts don’t sit as flat as you would like give them a gentle iron on the reverse side (use a hanky or tea towel between your heart and the iron) To make the bunting; chain 20 attach chain to your first heart using a ss, chain 6 attach with ss to the other side of your heart. Hang and enjoy… Hope you are having a great week! Like this:
