11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet pineapple stitch warm weather summer sexy beach hat ---> pattern link 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.

12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I Netted a Heart Shawl ----> free pattern link 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:

17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Recycled catalog to Heart Bookmark 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
