Okay..my name is Sally, I just started posting the other night, put up some of my knitted hats and a toy box/bench thing I made and now I'm going to share my fav crochetworks.. All VERY simple.
When I made these last summer, I was thinking to myself I'd make some winter wear and started with gusto, then quickly fizzled after making these and now they're all sitting in a cute box in a big crate full of other adorable things I made that will probably stay there for a while. I am the first to admit I get really lazy if I'm not challenged. Since I think they're cute and maybe someone else can get inspired by them why not share here?!
This is one of my favorites, I think I used double or tripple crochet, with a small amount of yarn I found at goodwill..just used it until it was gone. Attached some cute extra large buttons I found at a fabric store and also attached little hooks (like the ones on a bra) on the underside of one edge so the buttons, although useable, are more for show. Here's the best part, it can double as a belt!
This one I have mixed feelings about, I like the design but I'm not a fan of the yarn. Made a rectangle using single crochet and then turned the piece and single crocheted twice into each single crochet on one side, from the top of the piece down making waving ridges. (If you didn't already know just adding extra stitches into one make it wavy like that), again added hooks.
This one I made just like the first but with a different yarn, obviously, and only one button, again makes a great belt, in this case, a better belt than a cowl.
When I dreamed up this one I imagined it bigger, but I'm still happy with the end result. I just half double crocheted a big rectangle then made the flowery part seperate, made a chain connected it into a circle, single crocheted around then single crocheted twice into each single crochet in the row before to get the wavy affect again. added hooks and done. I like it.
This one is alot trickier than it looks, it looks similar to knitted i-cord but alas it's not. I crochets 4 or 5 rows really really long..I think 150 across and then stitched it up the seam and pulled the end through the entire tube using a safety pin attached to the end and pulling it through, connected the ends and done.Pain in the bootay! But still cute.
This is another one of my favorites, it's 2 pics too, ooOOooo! Same piece just closed different, again buttons are for show, love these buttons.. and attached hooks to the inside edge, I believe it's half double crochet.
I also made some other big a..rse, not sure of language rules here but trying to cut back on my sailor talk... cowls but they're knitted so that's it for now. Hope you enjoyed and maybe get inspired to make your own cowls.. I can't get enough..down with scarves!! ..kidding, but it sounds good.
