priscillascrochet.net/free patterns/Afghan Squares/Sunburst Granny Square.pdf

Chain 5. Join with a sl st to form a ring.

Chain 3.

The chain 3 will count as the first dc , work 15 more dc in the ring;

join with a sl st.(16dc). Fasten off.

Attach next colour with a sl st to any dc,

puff st in the same st and in each dc around. Here is how to do the puff st:

Yarn over,insert hook in the st and pull up a long loop

yarn over

pull up another long loop from the same stitch

yarn over again(3 times in total)

yarn over and pull through all remaining 7 loops on hook,chain 1 to lock.

puff st in each dc around,join with a sl st to the first puff st.

Hello!

I am still searching the ‘ perfect pattern’ for my new project. Yesterday I tried two patterns:

This pattern is from http://www.garnstudio.com. They have lovely – gorgeous-wonderful-fantastic! patterns; both knit and crochet.

I did a change in the last row in this pattern though. Now instead of one  project idea , I have two perfect project ideas!!!!

This pattern is from ‘rosehip’. Such a wonderful pattern; I got carried away and already made six of them!

And as I have mentioned red carnations in my last post,I have received some for the ‘International women’s day’ yesterday.

I hope you all have a nice day!

I love to use this things look so much nicer. The center is smoother and flatter than the traditional start to a circle, great for hats, mittens, anything really!

I love these, what a great way to use up extra yarn. I love to read and am a firm believer that you can never have too many bookmarks

Thanks Zen Garden Angel

I had some lovely green cotton yarn left over from my bags project and wanted to use the rest up. So I crocheted this little round box and a few tatted bookmarks.

The top and bottom of the box are doubles. 4 circles are used and then a small border or side/middle. It’s like having a thicker base by using 2 rounds sewn together. And the double one’s for the top of the box are great for keeping whatever treasures are inside, safe from falling out. 🙂  I sew half of each round on the top with a whip stitch. Then I tuck one full circle on the inside and the other for the cover.  I am using the little bit of yarn left over to make a tassel and I’ll add that to the box later.

The shuttles in the picture are of my own making and design. I…

Chi-Town Crochet Cowl
by Kathy Kelly

Yarn: 1 skein Lamb’s Pride Worsted 190 yards
Size K 6.5 mm hook, or size to achieve a relaxed stitch and flexible fabric, gauge is not important.
darning needle
This pattern uses a multiple of 4 + 1 stitches.
Example is 30” long and 8” wide, joined with a single twist to make a moebius.

Stitch abbreviations U.S. Terminology used
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
sp = space
sk st = skip stitch

Instructions
Make enough chains so that when the ends are joined it will easily fit over your head. Be sure the final number is a multiple of 4 + 1.  (I chained 81).
Note: When working dc rows do not work into 1st stitch directly underneath turning ch. Ch 3 turning chain counts as a dc throughout.

Row 1: dc in 4th…

Say Very Sweet Things

These are the last two crocheted baskets I will be making for a while. I have moved on to something else using yarn instead of thread.

I made a square one and put a little flower and some color into the round one-

The square one took a little longer to make and I wasn’t too happy with the end results. I couldn’t find just the right molds for the square.

I was happy with the little flower on the cover and the added color to the body of the round basket-

Without the covers-

All in all, I had fun making these and haven’t decided if I want to post the pattern.

It was such a beautiful day today that I sat outside on the front stoop and crocheted.  I am working on a crocheted pillow.  Last night, I finally came up with a design after 5 attempt.  I…
