Neat Ripple Pattern

Neat Ripple Pattern
Ahhhhhhhh look at all those hooky ripplesome ripples, aren't they glorious? I love crocheting this pattern, its relatively simple, rhythmic and soothing, but playing with colours in this way is also energising, exciting and a lot of fun. Well to me it is any road. there's something magical and mesmerising about the way the ripple effect makes the colours sing and dance next to each other, and it's a pattern I can see myself coming back to time after time. When I made my first ripple blanket last year (finished in August 2008), I followed a pattern in Jan Eatons book (the Soft Waves pattern), and it has to be said that at first this pattern was not plain sailing. But I persevered and eventually I cracked it. But truthfully I always think crochet patterns look and sound far too complex, more than they actually need to be. So what I've done here for you is to write my own pattern. To start out, you need to crochet your foundation chain. That whole thing is a tr2tog (treble two together)

Dinosaur applique So, I was looking for a pattern for an applique dinosaur and came up blank so I decided to try making it on my own:eek. I have never done this designing thing so I just wrote what I did as I went along. It hasnt been tested and I am sure others could have come up with something better. It turned out a little bigger than what I need so I am going to do another and make a change or two (will post those too if anyone is interested). I am not sure if the directions are written in proper format so if anyone tries it, please let me know if I could have made it more clear or said something differently.

Andersen Art Hi! I'm Karen M. Andersen - welcome to my tutorial on how to make crocheted covers for your clothes hangers! I learnt to crochet around 6 months ago and, with Summer coming on here in Australia meaning it is way too hot to crochet blankets, I was on the lookout for a crochet project that was easy, fun, colourful, functional, and quick to make up. After seeing so many pretty hangers online, I decided to try my hand at making up some crocheted covers for the many old wooden clothes hangers hanging in my wardrobe. I quickly became obsessed with making them and putting my modern-vintage take on an old favourite.

CRAFT Pattern: Crocheted Reversible Swiffer Sock : Daily source of DIY craft projects and inspiration, patterns, how-tos By Linda Permann I’ve always hated buying refills for my Swiffer sweeper — even though I use both sides of the cloth, it just seemed silly to throw them away. My sweeper had been languishing in my closet because I had no refills when I realized I could crochet my own reusable cover from some yarn I already had in my stash. I came up with this reversible version that’s loopy on one side (to grab the dust) and flat on the other (for damp mopping). This “sock” is fun and quick to crochet, easy to complete with scraps, and a great use for acrylic yarns, since they create static, which makes dust and hair cling. Once you’re done dusting, you can brush the excess dirt and dust into the trash bin (really, it’s okay to touch dirt!) and then throw the sock in the washer and dryer with your other laundry.

V stitch crochet blanket ~ Free Patterns Point V. It is an ideal point for any fabric, since it is neither too closed nor too open, in the crochet it is fast; Maintaned basis points, so it is ideal for beginners and allows increases and decreases in fabric very easily. It can also be used as a way of doing increases to two points when weaving at the point rod, because instead of knitting 3 points at the same base point, we weave 1 point and a chain.
