Starflower Mandala: Row by Row Two or so weeks back I posted my STARFLOWER MANDALA PATTERN The original plan was to provide photos of each row - but there was such a high demand for the pattern (long weekend = lots of crochet time) - so I decided to go ahead and publish with just the few photos of the first four rows!Hundreds (maybe thousands?) of people have by now made the Starflower Mandala (the pattern has been viewed some 65 000 times! - and counting!) YAY! My original STARFLOWER MANDALAS were crocheted with Stylecraft Special DK and a 3.50mm hook, giving a finished Mandala of 33 cm in diameter. The Starflower Mandala in this post was made with Raeesah Cotton Soft DK and a 4.00mm hook, giving me a finished Mandala of 45cm in diameter. The photo above is a little bit out of focus (I was precariously perched on a wall when taking this photo!)

One Skein Crochet Gifts for Men Can you believe how close the holidays are already?! Time to give thanks for quick projects!

Men’s Crochet Hat Pattern on JJ Crochet’s Blog: (90-100 yds) This quick beanie is dressed up with a ribbed style brim, great for guy who prefer their style simple. Looking for even more ideas? Crochet gifts for men don’t have to be a cause for stress! Project bag essentials with Lulu Loves' Emma - Simply Crochet Emma at Lulu Loves shares her must-have crochet accessories… I use this Cath Kidston basket for keeping my projects in. It’s just the right size to keep everything together and I can move it from room to room or out into the garden easily. I do most of my crocheting at home in the evenings but if I’m out and about collecting/dropping off the children I will pack what I’m working on into a smaller bag and crochet in the car. Like most people I know who knit or crochet I usually have several projects on the go. I always carry a notebook and pencil with me for jotting down ideas and pattern notes. My ipad usually lives in my basket too. I keep the hooks I’m using in a small pencil case that also carries a tapestry needle, tape measure, small scissors and a stitch counter. Lastly, a couple of pom pom makers because you just never know when the urge to make pom poms will hit you – plus, they are great for distracting bored children.

25 Crochet Techniques to Learn Cro-tatting – learn more Continuing on with the series, here is a list of 25 crochet techniques to learn to help jumpstart your crochet creativity. Some of them are specific techniques for traditional crochet and others are variations on traditional crochet. I’ve included seom information on getting started with learning each of these things. 1. Do you learn better from words and still photos than video? Many people prefer to use the magic ring to start their in-the-round project. 2. I like the tutorial from Stitch Diva that shows the anatomy of crochet stitch and explains where to put the hook to crochet in either the front or back loop only. 3. The best resource for getting started is the WonderHowTo page that shows a variety of different variations of two color crochet including how to crochet using two threads at once. 4. The most common crochet motif is the granny square so you can always start there but there are tons and tons of other motifs out there. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
