221  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Went to the moon and hooked some stars... on: February 26, 2011 10:41:17 AM

I keep them in a jar that used to house little bears.

Peel off as much of the label as possible (the jar i used was from an empty gummy-bear vitamin container).  Rub some cooking oil over any sticky residue, then rinse with warm soapy water.  Repeat this a few times until the surface is nice and clean.  Bore holes with a wood-burning tool.  Be sure you have some safety glasses on, and that you do this in a well ventilated area.  PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL IN SELECTING THE PLASTIC MATERIAL YOU USE, AS SOME PLASTICS CAN LEACH HARMFUL TOXINS WHEN BURNT.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON DECODING THE RECYCLING NUMBER OFTEN SEEN AT THE BASE OF PLASTIC CONTAINERS, START HERE: http://www.thedailygreen.com/green-homes/latest/recycling-symbols-plastics-460321.

Work in the round with SC until you have about 5 rounds; increase as you go so that you end up with 24-30 stitches.  Make one round HDC.  Make another round with SC (insert the hook behind the HDC to give a nice chain at the top rim of the pin cushion).  Make another round with SC, and then finish with one round of HDC.
Sew on one of the stars.  Line and stuff the inside with left-over yarn, and cover the lid with its new beanie.

Magic Circle 5 SC, and close with a SL
(CH3, SL back into 2nd chain, CH1 and SL into the next SC of the circle) X 5
Fasten off and leave the strands for decoration, or weave them in based on your preference.
Sew one star onto the lid.

Now you can insert your hooks for easy access!

Make variations or use container to store pencils, brushes, etc.

I really like this neck warmer. What is the base chain? Is it 10 like for row 1? Or do you BST:Ch 2, sc in front loop of first chain for your fondation? Seems pretty easy, but I get confused easy too. Smiley

Hi Kat - Thank you.  The base chain is row 1, which just repeats "CH 2, SC in front loop of first chain" ten times.

Winter is fast approaching and the mornings are starting to get cold, so the turning of seasons inspired me to make this scarf.  I made one for my cousin for her birthday and it's pretty quick.

This is the first pattern I've made, so any constructive comments would be much appreciated.

This is made from 4-ply acrylic medium weight worsted yarn; two colors totaling to about 1 skein.  I used an H hook.  

In a nutshell, here is the pattern for a single color.  If you want to know how I added a different color or how to weave through rows to interchange colors, please see the tutorial.

These are the stitches I used:
CH- chain
SC- single crochet
BST (this is one that I made up to stand for Back Stitch): CH2, SC in front loop of first chain
DC - double crochet
FPDC- front post double crochet

Row 1: BST 10
Row 2: CH3, (DC in same chain that the next SC is in, BST)X9, 2 DC in chain of last SC
Rows 3 -? (however long you want): CH3 and turn, (FPDC, BST)X9, FPDC, DC on top of last DC (not in the CH3)

The scarf seen on the pic has 50 rows, and from start to finish, the project takes about 2 hours.
