Apache Tears afghan

Apache Tears afghan
Beautifully textured, captivating and fascinating! I’m referring to the strikingly mesmerizing Apache Tears crochet pattern. I’ve had quite a few enquiries in regards to this pattern, so today I thought I’d share my tips and technique with you. It’s not a complicated pattern so let’s get started! The following are the ‘basic’ rules when working this pattern: Each row is worked from the right side.Each row is worked from right to left.Ensure to leave a 6 inch tail of yarn when beginning and ending a row.To begin each row, form a slip knot on your hook and commence row.Work all dc in the back loop of stitches.Work all dtr in the front loop of stitch 3 rows below, whilst missing the dc behind on current row. The pattern may also be customized to your own preferences, producing a dense fabric! When it comes to customizing it all boils down to . . . the spacing . . . you can choose to customize your blanket by working 8 dc, 6 dc or 4 dc etc. Sample 1: Spacing of 8 dc With Red, ch 37. Fasten off. Related:  Afghanscrochet 6

A Touch of Southwest Afghan This is one of three afghans that I received for my wedding many years ago. This one is from my husbands grandmother on his mother's side. This won her 1st place at the Lincoln County Fair in Nevada one year. Make starting chain as long as you wish to make the afghan start with a tail and leave a tail at the end of every row when you cut the yarn at the end of every row. below is the rest of the pattern pretty simple really leave tail, chain to desired length of afghan, leave tail again. Original was done in wool and felted a little. Also the original was also mirrored from side.

Seventies Granny Square Blanket Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing another tutorial with you: the Super Retro Seventies Granny Square Blanket. Or, in short, the Seventies Blanket ;) This blanket came to life because I wanted to make something for our new moss green sofa.

At the same time I needed squares that were fast and easy to make, but didn't look the part. In short: I love my Seventies Blanket and I would love to share with you how I made it. Hope you enjoy!

Stitches Double crochet (dc): yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull loop through stitch (3 loops on hook). Double crochet two together (dc2tog): yarn over, insert hook into stitch and pull loop through stitch (3 loops on hook). Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 You get it?

Irish Crochet Lace: 10 Free Patterns Irish crochet lace dates back to the the 19th century famine in Ireland, where it was a way for women to make money. It used several weights of thread, and motifs were made separately, tacked to paper, and the spaces filled in with mesh. Specific patterns and designs were often closely guarded secrets, and the finished lace was highly valued! Today, Irish crochet lace has evolved and expanded a bit, but the mesh and the rose are still iconic facets of the art. Irish Filigree Necklace by Annie Potter, on Talking Crochet Newsletter: Made with size 10 cotton thread, it’s breathtaking! The Irish crochet lace industry died out as fashions changed and machine-made lace took over.
