With any luck, it’ll continue to be a big hit.

How to Crochet A Curlicue Crocheting culicues are one of the most simple and fun things I've made in a while...oh and they are addicting too!For this I'm using an H hook and some worsted weight yarn I had laying around (here's a hat pattern for you I made a while back with this yarn) To begin, make a chain as long as you would like your curlicue to be plus 3 chains (the one shown here is 20+3), Retro Circles - The Tutorial I’m calling this a ‘tutorial’ rather than a pattern as I’m not re-inventing the wheel. Although I didn’t work from a pre-existing pattern when making my blanket I know there are many ‘circle in a square’ patterns out there. One from Little Tin Bird that is very similar to what I had done, so I would hate anyone to think that I’m claiming their pattern as my own.
équipe Pantoufles a ajouté : GREEN ZEBRA – Crochet Baby Booties FREE Hello! It’s time for another free crochet pattern for baby booties. This time you will need two shades of green DK weight 100% cotton yarn, 3.5 mm crochet hook, stitch markers, yarn needle and some buttons. They are super cute and easy to make. The pattern is also available as a PDF file and a YouTube tutorial. Basics of the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf The Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf pattern includes written instructions and a chart… and now there’s a video that gives a basic overview of how to get it started! Getting past the start of Row 2 was tripping a few people up (so if it gave you trouble, you’re not alone), but hopefully the following video will make it all clear! So as you can see, the spiral forms because you don’t slip stitch and chain to start each new row – they’re just made in continuous strips around and around in a circle. If you look at the photo below, you can see that it just keeps going and going and going.

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!
Star Decoration I designed these little hanging decorations to add some colourful, homespun Hooky Goodness to my Christmas Tree this season, but there's no reason why they can't be used all year round and in all sorts of ways. I've had suggestions for using them as baby rattles, baby mobiles, as tags on wrapped gifts, or simply just as little decorative gifts to pass on to friends and family. These are quick and satisfying little things to work up, ideal to use up those little itty bits of stash yarn that you might have lurking somewhere. I personally prefer to use cotton yarn for making decorations (here I've used Rico Creative Cotton), but any yarn would be fine. I also tend to switch down a hook size for making decorations which keeps the stitches quite tight and prevents the polyester stuffing showing through the gaps. So for example where the Rico cotton suggests a 5mm hook size, I switch down to a 4mm hook.
Ombre Basket Pattern I am so amazed at the interest with this basket I used 9 colors and tried to achieve an ombre effect. The size is about three times larger than the chunky basket.
