11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / bottle holder with strap - PATTERN INCLUDED on: October 04, 2008 05:31:59 PM
I'm FINALLY getting around to posting the pattern for a water bottle holder I made for the Ongoing Wish List swap.

Close up:


    * hook of your choice - what ever is recommended for your yarn.
    * cotton yarn with some stretch (I used yarn that was lighter than worsted weight)


    * chain 4
    * sl in 1st chain to form a loop
    * work 8 sc in loop
    * sl to join round


RD 1 - ch 1, sc in same stitch (2 sc - ch1 counts as 1st stitch), *sc in next stitch, 2sc in teh following stitch* repeat from * to * until you get back to the join - sl into ch1 stitch of round [12 stiches]
RD2 - repeat Rd 1 [18 st]
RD3 - repeat Rd 1 [27 st]
RD4 - repeat Rd 1 [40 st]
RD5 - repeat Rd 1 [60 st] - this should be enough for a smal bottle with small yarn - you can keep going if you need a larger bottle size.
RD6 - repeat Rd 1 [88 st]


RD7 - ch1, sc in same stitch, sc each stitch in rd, sl to join round (this row should now appear to be on the edge of the circle you just made).
RD8 - Begin mesh - ch 6, skip 2 sc, 1 tr in next stitch repeat from * to * (all sc in round) sl into 4th ch on 1st stitch to join rd.
REPEAT RD8 until the holder is the desired height.


RDx - ch1, sc in each stitch around, sl to join round
RDx+1 - sc in next 8 stitches
RDx+2 - ch1, turn, sc in each stitch across.

REPEAT RD x+2 until strap is desired length

Flatten the main body of the holder to determine placement on other side of holder (should be directly opposite from the other side of strap).

sl into sc to join strap to holder.


Weave in ends


hope you enjoy!!

Hi hi! been going crazy with the button stash this weekend. I made a pendant with 2 buttons and some sterling silver wire...



As you can see, my wire bending skills need to be improved, but I think I'm in love with this new piece!

What do you think?
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my watch and button stash exploded and this what came out! earrings and pins... on: September 20, 2008 01:02:27 PM

Aqua button earrings:

Gear pin:

and look what I found in my last grab bag of buttons from the thrift store:

15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pink overload - completed baby set on: September 16, 2008 12:47:25 PM
My coworker and friend Becky is having her baby girl, Bella, a week from Friday. So my team set up a baby shower for her on Monday and this is what I contributed as well as setting most of it up Wink.

12 pointed Star Afghan (stoller sized) with 3 rows of white (one for each of the girls in the family once Bella is born, mom, big sister, and little sister). https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=156890.0

Baby hat - made from the Happy Hooker book (sock monkey hat with no monkey or color change)

1 pair baby mary janes found randomly on crochet pattern central (can't find pattern now).

And this would be why you need to use stainless steel pins for blocking:

Hello there!

I whipped this up a few weeks ago. It's a vintage button I got from sewinglori in the button swap with watch parts sewn to it.

What do you ladies and gents think?
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / protect your pants! ankle pant hem wranglers for bike riding on: August 12, 2008 12:58:16 PM
anyone riding a bike knows that your pants legs will get caught in the gears if you don't make them behave. I made these to match a panierre set I made for buglady in the Bicycle swap

what do you ladies and gents think?

And yes - I've posted like 4 other projects here today... I'm just catching up - I never used to post my projects separate from swaps, so I thought I'd give it a try.
