http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blue-mist-cowl

Skill Level: Beginner

This slip stitched cowl is light and airy but will provide plenty of warmth during the cool months. With the chunky yarn and the large hook, it makes a perfect project for a beginner or a quick project for an advanced crocheter. Although the stitches create a different pattern on each side, both are equally beautiful making it completely reversible and adding interest when twisted around the neck.

This pattern calls for 2 skeins of Cascade Yarns Baby Alpaca Chunky which gives it amazing drape and coziness but any chunky yarn can be used as a substitute.

Finished Size (if blocked):  11" wide x 54" long

Originally I had no plans of writing up a pattern, but once the cozy was completed, and I liked how it turned out, I wanted to share. Plus, I figured that if I wanted a cozy for my thermos then someone else might want one too.

new crochet pattern - post stitch dishcloth sampler by tara schreyer.



SKILL LEVEL: Easy

This pattern is for a set of 3 different dishcloths that allow you to practice your post stitches.  While each cloth uses similar stitches each has a unique look as illustrated in the pictures. Careful consideration was given to the stitches as well so that the dishcloths are completely reversible, providing texture on both sides.

The pattern calls for one 123 yard ball of Knit Picks Cotlin DK (70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen) per dishcloth, but any DK weight (3) cotton can be substituted.  Each cloth measures 9" x 9" using the suggested weight of yarn but any size can be made as the pattern provides the multiple needed to change the size.

The 3 patterns use a variety of simple stitches but concentrate on post stitches.  If you are not familiar with front /back post double crochets or front/back post treble crochets here is your opportunity to practice!!  Here is a helpful tutorial on post stitches to get you started - http://knotsewcute.blogspot.ca/2011/06/how-to-work-post-stitch-in-crochet.html

finished project - Spring Bunny

I fell in love with this pattern design, Spring Bunny, from Josephine Wu and I just had to make it. She was so much fun to work on.  She got cuter and cuter with every step and piecing her together became quite addicting.

This little bunny has made her way to the Dominican Republic, into the hands of my sweet little niece.  Aren't the two of them precious together? I think she likes her :)




Here is Spring Bunny enjoying the warm sunshine at a resort, overlooking the pool.  Is it possible to be jealous of a stuffy?? 




Have a wonderful weekend everyone and don't forget to check out Josephine Wu's collection of cute crochet patterns for yourself.  You will find her designs on Etsy, Craftsy, and Ravelry.  Enjoy!!

Textured Pot Holder by Kim Miller

pot holder, but any worsted weight (4) 100% cotton may be substituted. The pattern uses the following stitches: single crochet, double crochet, bobble, and picot.

The finished, unblocked pot holder measures 20.3 cm (8”) by 20.3 cm (8”)

new crochet pattern - basket of owls baby blanket by kim miller.


http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basket-of-owls-baby-blanket
 
Basket of Owls Baby Blanket by Kim Miller

Skill Level: Intermediate

This gorgeous, cabled baby blanket is full of texture, and will make a timeless gift that is sure be enjoyed and treasured for years.

This crochet baby blanket, featuring a border of 16 cabled owls, is worked from the center out. The owls buttons eyes are attached as you go, making it safer for baby. Also, the textured stitches hide the join at the end of each round, so other than the last few rounds of the owl panel (as shown in the last picture) the border is barely noticeable.

This crochet pattern includes lots of colour pictures to help you to successfully complete your project, but please note that the pattern is written in a condensed manner, so good pattern reading skills is recommended. The pattern calls for 4½ skeins of Berroco Vintage worsted weight yarn [100 g (3.5 oz)/200 meters (217 yards) per skein], and 32 – 16 mm (5/8”) buttons. The pattern uses the following stitches and techniques: adjustable ring, ch, sc, hdc, dc, fpdc, bpdc, fptr and picot and cluster. Instructions for the latter 5 stitches are included.

Finished Size: Unblocked = 68.6 cm (27”) by 68.6 cm (27”). Blocked = 71 cm (28”) by 71 cm (28”). Please note that the size is approximate and will be affected by the gauge and the brand of yarn.

sneak peek.

The crochet pattern for this baby blanket was inspired by a very dear and sweet customer. It just so happens that as I was pondering a design for a square baby blanket, one of our customers contacted us, and suggested designing a pattern for a square baby blanket with a cabled owl border. I was immediately inspired and spent the rest of the day looking at stitch dictionaries and researching yarn.
 
Working from the center out presented all sorts of design challenges! After much frustration and tearing out, I'm so pleased with the finished results and happy to share with you a sneak peek.....
 
 
Just a few details to work out and the pattern for the "Basket of Owls Baby Blanket" will be ready for publication.

that nasty word "gauge".


I can't think of 5 letters that can evoke more stress in the mind of most crocheters then the word "gauge". We've all seen it written in patterns, and we all know that it is something we should check, but it is so much easier to ignore it. Really, all we want to do is relax and crochet. Then when our project turns out to be any size, other than what we intended, we do what every good crocheter does...we cast all blame on the pattern and the designer. I know that I'm guilty of this and I'm sure that I'm not the only one, so I thought that I would take a few minutes to talk about gauge (also known as tension). Hopefully, this will take away some of the mystery and fear.

First off, what is gauge? Simply put gauge, or tension, is your guide as to how tight or how loose the designer crochets. Each of us is unique. Not everyone holds their yarn the same, or crochets the same. Some us crochet loosely while others of us crochet tightly, and for some of us our gauge is dependent on our mood. When we are happy and relaxed our gauge is loose, and when we are upset or tense our stitches are tighter then normal. The gauge is added to the pattern so that you are able to match your gauge, or tension to the designers. If your gauge is different then the designers then not only will this affect the finished size, but it will also affect the drape and feel of the fabric.

Now, comes the question...how do you check gauge? Before you start your crochet project you will want to work up a small test swatch. You want to know how many stitches and rows you are getting in a given measurement. Often, the designer will suggest a 4" (10 cm) square, but it is best to work up a few more stitches and rows then the gauge instructions recommend. This will ensure that you get a accurate measurement. Also, be sure to use the yarn weight and hook size recommended, and to follow all instructions regarding blocking and pressing. After you have crocheted your test swatch as directed, lay it out on a flat surface and using a metal or rigid ruler measure the length horizontally across the square. Mark the length with a pin at either end as shown.



Next, take the same measurement vertically across the square and again mark with a pin at either end.



If you are measuring the gauge over a pattern of stitches then the same principle applies.


Now, count the number of stitches and rows between the pins. If you have the same number of stitches and rows, as the pattern suggests, then you can proceed with your project. If you have more stitches, this means that you crochet tighter then the designer, and if you have less stitches you crochet looser.

The next question is, how do you match your gauge to the designers? We have found that the simplest way is to change your hook size. When a designers adds the hook size to a pattern this is meant to be used as a guide. There is no hard and fast rule that this is the hook size that you should use. The most important thing is to make sure that you are getting the same gauge or tension as the designer. If the designer crochets tighter then you do then this would mean that you would need to choose a smaller hook, and don't be alarmed if your hook size is drastically different then the hook size called for in the pattern. I'm a fairly loose crocheter so for amigurumi I've been known to use a hook as small as a 3.00 mm to a 3.50 mm (E) using a worsted weight yarn, whereas someone else may achieve the same gauge as me using a 5.00 mm (H) crochet hook.

Another way to match the gauge is to try holding the yarn in a different manner. If your stitches are too loose you can try wrapping the yarn around your ring finger as well as your little finger. If your stitches are too tight you can try not wrapping the yarn around your fingers at all. You will need to make up a new test swatch for each trial, but it is well worth the effort as it will help you to successfully finish your project and ensure that you have something that you are proud of and able to enjoy for years!

finished project - seafoam shawl.


I've been eyeing up this one skein of Blue Heron Rayon Metallic in my yarn stash for some time now. Although, I tend to stick to more neutral colours I was drawn to this gorgeous colour way, and I've been pondering for a while now about what to make with it. I'm not a big fan of colour pooling so I was looking for a quick, lacy project that would really show off the yarn. I finally decided on the Seafoam Shawl by Kimberly K. McAlindin. Not only did I love the pattern, but it also turned out to be a great match for the yarn.


Seafoam Shawl by Kimberly K. McAlindin
  
Seafoam Shawl by Kimberly K. McAlindin
  
I thoroughly enjoyed crocheting with this yarn as it is amazingly soft, and not at all itchy, which is unlike most metallic yarns. Also, the drape is simply delicious! I used a 3.75 mm (F) crochet hook and if you compare my shawl to the original you will notice that I didn't follow gauge....ooops. I really should of taken the time to work out a test swatch as I would have preferred my finished project to have turned out a bit bigger. Totally my fault, but  in the end it is a nice size for a scarf. To open up the stitches and to stretch it out a bit, I lightly steamed blocked the shawl/scarf when it was done.
