how-to: woven circles trivet I found the gold and pink crocheted trivet pictured below at the thrift store this weekend, and it was a total "I can make that" moment. The structure of the circles is made from plastic rings cut from one of those pieces that holds together a six-pack of soda. The hardest part will be in finding plastic rings that are actually circle. The sodas that were in my fridge (a Pepsi product) had "rings" that were more of an oval, almost D-like shape. Luckily I had a rounded version laying around, though I have no idea what kind of soda it came from. stitch Archives - Deramores Dig out your needles and try the latest Something for the Weekend instalment! This week it’s the Double Lattice Stitch. The Double Lattice stitch incorporated the technique of left and right twist stitches. Worked over a 12 row pattern this stitch is ideal for an adventurous beginner and can add interest to any knitted project. We’re using our very own Deramores Studio DK in this swatch. Abbreviations

Circle Pendant Necklace This is so easy to make and if you use left over yarn from your stash, with just the cost of the pendant, it is easily under $5.00! I originally made this necklace over a year ago, every time I wear the teal one, I get compliments. When I say, “I made this myself” the usual response is “no way!” Well…”yes way!” Crossing stitches: one way to avoid a hole on a vertical opening in knitwear On the community knitting board Ravelry, the subject has twicelately come up of crossing stitches to avoid a hole where a vertical opening (pocket slit, buttonhole, sleeve opening, division for the heeltab of a sock) is being made. Although it is not the only method for avoiding holes in this area, crossing stitches is a decent utility method for solving the problem and deserves a post of its own. Illustration 1 shows the nature of the problem. Specifically, when two columns of stitches are to be separated, the only thing holding the fabric together under the separation is a single stand of yarn (illustrated in green). That single strand tends to stretch out, and will eventually leave a hole in this area. Illustration 2 shows that by crossing the stitches in the row just under the separation, there will now be five strands of yarn to take the strain (green) rather than the single strand in illustration 1.

This Vintage Chica: Rag Rug Tutorial Finally! I first blogged about this rag rug back in early September and immediately got several questions about how to make one. I googled "rag rugs" to see if there was an easy tutorial to send people to, but I couldnt find directions that were not too complicated or quite right for how I am crocheting this rug. I guess there are several ways to use rags to make rugs...hooked, braided, sewed, crocheted, binded, etc.

Understanding Instructions Learning about crochet is like immersing yourself in a foreign culture where another language is spoken and written, and where there are unfamiliar rules and customs. It can be a little intimidating and a tad frustrating at times, but the payoff is big and totally worthwhile. So continue to follow along as we explain what you’ll need to know before you make your very first project! The longest journey begins with the first step, and knowing the meaning and importance of gauge is your first step to crocheting a garment that comes out the correct size. Every pattern direction will have a recommended gauge, plus finished measurements. Celtic Cross Granny Square I have always been intrigued with Celtic knots and the Celtic cross. Two years ago I began to design crochet pieces with knots and crosses. I think the Celtic cross is beautiful; the ornamental value is stunning. For me, it's not necessarily the religious aspects, it is pure beauty.

My knitted wool top hat I was asked how I made my hat and I figured I should do a write up. It started when I found this site and a pattern for a tricorn hat: I recommend thoroughly reading that article site and getting comfortable with the process.
