Crochet ric-rac

Crochet ric-rac
Hey there! What are you up to this fine Monday morning? Since my post last week, I've had so many emails and comments asking about the recipe for homemade, hooked ric-rac, that I thought I'd do a little how to. Before we start there are a few things to keep in mind. I am using US crochet terminology.I usually use a size 2 hook but its fun to experiment. STEP ONE - Chain four. STEP TWO - dc into the fourth chain from the hook, ie. the first chain you made. STEP THREE - Do another dc into the same chain as in step two, chain, then do a final dc into the same chain. STEP FOUR - Chain three. STEP FIVE - Turn your work so that the crochet you just did is up the top as per the photo. Then do two dc's, chain and another dc into the chain space from the previous round. Then chain three. and turn. STEP SIX - Repeat step five until you reach your desired length. Always ch3 after each cluster and then turn. Fasten off. Here's the whole thing again in crochet language; Chain 4 (only this once) See ya! Related:  Stick och virkmönstermiscellaneous

Tapestry Crochet - Harlequin Pattern Tutorial Hello! So today I thought I'd chat a bit about the very cool crochet technique called tapestry crochet. Tapestry crochet allows you to create a piece of crochet that plays with colour changes and flat patterns. You use two coloured pieces of yarn and crochet over the colour not in use, so you can alternate between two colour as the pattern requires. That is pretty much it in a nut shell, so if you know how to crochet, draw up a pattern on graph paper and give it a try! Tapestry crochet creates a nice thick fabric, and you can be very creative with the patterns. A few people asked for a pattern, so if you want a bit more detail, I have done a little tutorial and step by step guide, I hope it doesn't get too confusing. So this is how I made my basic harlequin pattern: Firstly, I used graph paper to draw up my pattern, as you can see it's very simple! Each square represents 1 sc stitch. I am doing 3 repeats, so the first row of my pattern is 6, 1, 13, 1, 13, 1, 6 = 41 chains to start. xxxxxx

Free Vintage Crochet Doily Patterns from Beeton's Book of Needlework by Jane Lake The vintage doilies shown on this page are the first four of a set of ten vintage crochet patterns contained in the BEETON'S BOOK OF NEEDLEWORK, written by Isabella Beeton and first published in 1870. The invention of the doily is credited to Mr. D'Oyley, a successful 17th century milliner. Mr. Doilies are still used today to protect the surfaces of furniture from scratches or stains, but they also offer a feminine style element to any room from the boudoir to the basement. The Beeton Book of Needlework uses the word "D'Oyley" in all its crocheted doily patterns, but regardless of how you spell the name, the intricate designs in these doilies are clearly heirlooms in the making. If you look at the doilies shown here, you'll see many of the design elements are repeated, but in such a way that each doily remains, like a snowflake, a uniquely beautiful creation. Used reprints of the original Beeton's Book of Needlework are usually available through Amazon. Print this Page

Mormorsrutor med Prästkragar/Daisy Squares De här underbart vackra mormorsrutorna med Prästkragar får en nästan att känna doften av sommar, inte sant!? *** Information to my English speaking crochet friends: For a pattern in English, follow the link to Color’n Cream, where Jenn Poort has made an excellent photo pattern in English, called Vintage Flowers, which inspired me to make my Daisy Granny Squares.

Recycled Plastic Fat Bottom Bag  | My Recycled I present my plarn fat bottom bag that I crocheted using recycled plastic newspaper bags. You may remember me saying that it is difficult for me to obtain pretty colors in plastic bags for my crafting. Well thanks to a suggestion from a blogger friend, I asked my local library to save their newspaper bags for me. They have been giving me one pink and one orange plastic bag daily from their newspapers. You may notice that the pink shade on the last few rounds of the bag and handles are darker. As I mentioned this is my first fat bottom crocheted bag. Below you will find some pictures I took as I worked the pattern. Click on any of the photos to supersize them Here is shell started and also a photo after the base shell was completed. Here is the lining pinned in place before the gathering and the handles are crocheted. My Fat Bottom Bag Flap: Several people have asked about the flap I added and wanted instructions on how to create this flap. Mark the center 12 stitches on bag opening.

untitled Crocheted Produce Bag Well, I thought since the produce bag was something I just made up real quick I should post the pattern. I am sure there are way better ones out there, but most of them end up decreasing at the end to get a smaller opening, but I wanted mine large so leafy stuff that I buy in multiple little bunches could poke out, like baby broccoli or bok choy. So here is the pattern, just in case you want to make a couple as well. Materials: 1 skein Lion Brand Organic Cotton Yarn (#680), or similar worsted weight yarn Size I-9 Crochet Hook Little scrap of fabric (optional) Rnd 1: Begin with an adjustable loop, and crochet 12 double crochet (dc) into the loop and pull tight. Rnd 2: *Chain 7, skip 1 dc and slip stitch in next dc.* Repeat around. Rnd 3: Chain 7, Slip stitch (slst) into 4th chain (ch) of round 2. Rnd 4: Ch 7, slst into the point where the last two rounds meet, then ch 7 and slst into the 4th ch of the last round as well. Rnd 16: Single crochet (sc) in every chain around, join with a slst.
