2  Make Your Own Foxy Loxy Shawl in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: August 19, 2018 03:27:54 PM
Here's an incredibly quick stash-busting project that happens to also be kinda cute.



Materials:

1 skein Lion Brand Heartland in Yosemite (or 250 yds of any other color worsted weight yarn)
1 (partial) skein Studio Classic by Nicole in White (or about 200 yds of any other worsted weight yarn in white)
Small amount of any worsted weight yarn in Black
Size J/6 mm hook
An afternoon with tea and most any Colin Firth movie or an evening with wine and most any Colin Firth movie.
Finished Size: 48" wingspan, 28" from center top to bottom peak.

This is a very vanilla pattern that is perfect for either a beginner crocheter or a seasoned hooker that might need a super quick gift. The entire shawl is worked in double crochet in back-and-forth rows, and the eyes are double crochet in the round. Easy peasy!

Ch 4, sl st in first ch to make a loop.

Row 1: Ch 3 (this will count as the first dc on this row and every additional row), (2 dc, ch-2, 3 dc) in loop. You will have 6 dc and 1 ch-2 space.

Row 2: Ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch as ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in top of ch 3. Now there's 12 dc and 1 ch-2 sp.

Rows 3-22: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in each st across to ch-2 sp, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 space, dc in each st across to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3. 132 dc and 1 ch-2 sp at end of row 22. This is where my 251 yds of orange yarn ran out, so I fastened off the orange, switched to white and continued on. If you'd like a larger shawl, this is where you can keep on crocheting and switch to the white yarn whenever you feel like it.

Row 23: Attach white yarn, ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 59 st. Change to black yarn and dc in next 6 st, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 6 st. Attach white yarn again and dc in each dc to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Row 24: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 61 dc. Change to black yarn and dc in next 7 st, (2dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 7 st. Attach white yarn and dc in each st to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Row 25: Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 64 st. Change to black yarn and dc in next 7 st, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 7 st. Attach white yarn and dc in each st to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Rows 26-30: Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in each st across to ch-2 sp, (2dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in each st across to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.  Fasten off.

Eyes (make 2): With black yarn and size J hook, make a magic loop.
Round 1: 6 dc inside loop. Pull yarn tail to close. You will be working in a spiral so there's no seam.
Round 2: 2 dc in each st around. You will have 12 dc.
Round 3: [(2 dc), 1 dc] 6 times. 18 dc
Round 4: [(2 dc) 2 dc] 6 times. 24 dc
Round 5: Change to white yarn and sc in each st around. Fasten off.
Sew eyes onto scarf, weave in ends, and admire your work! Hopefully your daughter won't walk by and comment on "the weird Dorito" you've just finished like mine did. Happy hooking!

Great new cards in the gallery, I see! I'm really digging the unicorn card. It would be awesome to have socks with that pattern. The heart card is sweet and the background is really cool. Is it thick like handmade paper? All of Mountain And Cloud's Keep Calm cards are so gorgeous; I want the entire collection! At least I am fortunate enough to have one:



Thanks for the great card, Mountains And Clouds! I believe that is a crafting dilemma that several artists have.  Cheesy

Beautifully stitched beach card, curiousfae! I know what you mean by having to stitch something when the urge is there, and your card is a wonderful example of a tiny work of art. Speaking of works of art, I received a stunner of a card from blu, and I can't keep my eyes off it! It is simply perfect. She chose my Dilapidated Buildings theme and I could not love it any more. Thank you, blu!



As amazing as She-Ra is, I have to say Teela gets my vote as most bad-ass warrior princess. She rides a unicorn, is most likely a vegetarian, and is a tomboy. I'm guessing she's also an Aries, as she has a hot temper and is sometimes reckless, but she does ride her unicorn in a leotard, and we all know leotards tend to creep up in an uncomfortable manner. Plus, these 1983 sheets may or may not be currently on my bed.  Roll Eyes

5  Chaircat's Apple Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: August 06, 2018 08:29:54 AM
"What do you mean summer's nearly over?!"



"And now you're telling me THIS is my back-to-school hat?"






Well, at least she's home schooled!

6  Chairy Potter in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: July 31, 2018 10:53:38 AM
Chaircat Mao is celebrating Harry Potter's birthday with a little cosplay and an HP movie marathon.



She must enjoy Goblet of Fire the most, as her wig is very much "fourth year", but I can see she also took inspiration from Sorcerer's StoneCheesy



Happy Birthday Harry!

7  Fairy House in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: July 26, 2018 09:05:07 AM
My kids and I had been collecting bits of things on our nature walks and displayed our findings on a little table. Well, the cat decided to claim the table as her own (it is in front of a window and gives a nice view of the outside world, so I couldn't be upset about it) and we had to do something else with our treasures. I thought a fairy house was a good idea and constructed the little abode inside a half scale corner room box from Alpha Stamps. It is a 6" x 6" x 4" area which fit all of the bark, sticks, acorns, vines, shells, and leaves we gathered.





We added a few dollhouse items like plates, silverware, and the smallest picnic basket imaginable. It's 1" wide!



I built a hutch from cardboard and twigs and painted it with white acrylic paint. The red button on top is one we picked up on a walk.



And finally, a shell made a pretty nice sink that tucked perfectly in the corner.



My girls can now enjoy their nature findings and the cat can have her sunshine in the window!

8  Chaircow Moo in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: July 10, 2018 01:43:11 PM
Happy Cow Appreciation Day! Why not celebrate the holiday with a delicious veggie burger (like this one from Oyhana)?  Cheesy



Chaircat Mao thought a catnap was a more suitable way to enjoy the day.



Happy summer!

Chaircat Mao is beating the summer heat the only way she knows how.



By lying on the couch and requesting treatsies.

Stay cool!

10  Miniature Apothecary in a Tin in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: June 29, 2018 04:06:22 PM
I made a wee cabinet out of basswood and wondered what the heck to do with it, so I painted it black and stuck it in an altoids tin (because that's what you do with these sorts of things, right?). It was pretty boring until I added an Altoids Tin Facade from Alpha Stamps, which transformed it into a tiny shop that one of my kids named Stop Your Coffin Remedies and RaritiesCheesy



There's lots of teensy bottles made from beads and upturned dollhouse glasses, as well as a few books, a skull, and some mossy bits for good measure.



The cabinet was originally going to be made from cardboard, my go-to material for mini furniture, but I found pre-cut basswood rectangles at a craft store and thought they'd work out. I trimmed a few and they worked better than the cardboard for this project. But I still used cardboard for the "doors"!
