FEBRUARY GRANNY-A-DAY


This is basically a motivation crochetalong. If you want to work on a granny square, motif, one huge granny square blanket, this is a great way to set aside time everyday to get some serious work completed in an attainable amount of time.

People have come up with some really neat uses for grannys too! Different bags and blankets, shopping sack holder, slippers, scarves, a nifty pullover etc. I have made 7" grannys and after a month I have 30 squares that make a perfect size throw blanket.

If you are intrested and would like to join we would love to see your work! Post pics of progress and then at the end of the month post a pic of al that you accomplished! It would be great if everyone could post progress weekly (but not required). At the end of the month we can piece together our work and show off our afghans and Inga bags and whatever else you can come up with to make with nifty grannies! (Must post a completed project or progress pic in this thread.)

You can find many of the other threads in the crochet-a-long section to see how we have done it before!

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Eclipse Quotes Tote Bag on: June 29, 2010 10:53:28 AM
I made this for the Estatic about Eclipse Swap for juliminustheE. I thought I would share in honor of the opeing!


I purchased the tote at Hobby Lobby and then wrote a ton of quotes from the Eclipse Book all over it. There is at least one quote from each chapter. In bewteen each quote is a little heart or paw print if its Jacob.


It took about two hours but I thinks its cute and I like the subtleness of it.

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Eclipse Inspired Shrug - Tutorial Added on: June 29, 2010 10:37:59 AM
I made this shrug for the Estatic about Eclipse Swap for my partner juliminustheE. In honor of the opening I thought I'd share!

Thanks to mom for modeling for me.

Tutorial:
The nice thing about this shrug is you can easily adjust it to fit anyone. It is crocheted in one piece from one big rectangle. It doesnt take a whole lot of yarn. I made a XL XXL and used almost a whole ball of 4 oz chenille yarn. It was a really skinny yarn. Really quick and easy. I completed it in 2 hours.

Supplies:
- ball of yarn
- H hook
- darning needle
- stitch markers
- ribbon of choice

1) Start by measuring from sleeve to sleeve. Here you can decide the length of the sleeves. Short, long, sleeve. You will measure where you want the sleeves to come down on your arms up over your shoulders to the same length on the other sleeve.

2) Then chain this length in multiples of four stitches to form the correct base for the fishnet stitch.

3) Fishnet Stitch: Make a single crochet into the 8th chain from the hook, make 5 more chains, skip 3 chains, and make a single crochet into the next chain. Continue across the row until you get to the end. Finish the row with a single crochet. Chain 5 stitches and turn.

4) Next Row:  Make a single crochet in the first 5 chain space (not in a stitch). Chain 5. Make a single crochet in the next 5 chain space. Continue across the row until you get to the end. Repeat this process until you have a rectangle the can comfortably wrap around your arms to form the sleeves. *The fishnet stitch has a lot of stretch. Be sure to pull the edges of the rectangle out to make sure you are using the full length of the rectangle. Fasten off and weave ends.

5) When your rectangle is wide enough to form your sleeves it time to sew up the sleeves. Put the rectangle over your shoulders. (*you may need some help) Pull the rectangle around each arm to form the sleeve joining the ends with a stitch marker. Place another marker joining together the sleeve about 2-3 inches from your arm pit. You dont want it to be too close to your arms pits or it will cut and dig into your underarms. Make sure you are even on both sides by counting the stitches. *I also checked the size with a short sleeve cardigan that fits me well.

6) Sew with the darning needle and a length of the yarn stitch marker to stitch marker on each sleeve. Weave ends.

7) To form the cuff of the sleeve single crochet 3 rows around the sleeve opening. *careful not to make the stitches to tight. Fasten off and weave ends. Repeat on other sleeve.

Cool To make the collar:
Row 1: Single crochet around the opening where you would put on the shrug. At the end join and chain 3 and turn.
Row 2: Double crochet in the second stitch from the hook, chain 1, skip 1, double crochet, repeat all the way around. *should make a place to weave the ribbon in and out of. At the end join and chain 1 and turn.
Row 3: single crochet all the way around. Fasten off and weave ends.  

9) Weave ribbon through the double crochets. Knot or tie in a bow. You can change the ribbon to match what you are wearing or don't use a ribbon at all.

*Contact me if there are any question or something is unclear! Post pics if you make one, please.THANKS!
