31  Crochet Skip One Two Baby Blanket ---> Fre pattern link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: March 27, 2013 06:06:52 AM

Close Up of Stitch

Close Up of Border

Made entirely of single crochet stitches, but placed in a way that the fabric made is soft, but not hole-y. I also used a K/6.5mm hook so that the the stitches would be more springy. Size is 24x32 inches.
Here is the pattern:

33  Crochet pineapple stitch warm weather summer sexy beach hat ---> pattern link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: March 16, 2013 12:40:03 PM

One of the prettiest stitches in crochet is the pineapple. In this project, it is worked in the round. Here is a lacy hat, suitable for warm weather, which is crocheted in 4 ply cotton. There are plenty of open spaces and four big beautiful pineapples to show off. Can be made in less than two hours and uses less than one skein of thick cotton.

Materials: 1 skein of as Lily Sugar nCream4-ply cotton yarn, either the 2 ounce variegated or the 2.5 ounce solid color. You will need 1.4 ounces in color of choice. Models were made with colors Key Lime Pie and Red.

34  I Netted a Heart Shawl ----> free pattern link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: February 21, 2013 05:39:39 AM

Detail of heart

When I saw Babukatorium's post about the beautiful heart shawl she made from a vintage pattern, it jogged my memory. The vintage pattern she used was from a French magazine that is in my personal collection.. The directions were very sketchy, not written in modern terminology and assumed that the person making it was skilled. I completely re-wrote the directions in row by row detail and added an 18 photo slide show help.  I also added a border to the top of the shawl to finish it off nicely.There was no name for the stitch used, so I'm calling it Netted Heart Stitch.

Here is the pattern:

I have a lot of paper punches and wanted to see how I could use them in different ways. I used a recycled clothing catalog and a tree and heart punch.

39  Recycled catalog to Heart Bookmark in Valentine's Day by Maria Merlino on: January 27, 2013 09:49:09 AM

Clothing catalogs that come in the mail can be a good resource for paper with color and textural designs. Recycle the pages into a stacked heart bookmark by using a heart shaped paper punch. For the base of the bookmark, use the white glossy card stock divider that comes in boxed teas. They are the perfect size. However, any card stock or even a recycled cereal box will do. There is a short slide show. Video is provided at the end of instructions for the more detailed close up step-by-step

Here are two images for your MLK Day of Service. Print them on card stock or index card weight paper. If you use plain copy paper, glue them to the back of a cereal box for sturdiness.
