3  Granny square Christmas Tree block in Winter Holidays by bethntim on: December 23, 2017 06:40:48 AM
Why do I start projects 2 days before Christmas?Huh
This has the makings of an afghan but at this point it'll probably end up as a hot pad


Edited to add graph and written pattern:

Pattern:
I hook ( It will be almost 8 inches square)
Green, Red, and White Yarn (or whatever colors you like)
This is a basic granny square with carefully placed color changes
Round 1
With green yarn and I hook make a magic circle and secure with a stitch
Chain two (counting as 1 dc), then work two double crochet (dc) into the ring. Chain one and work three dc into the ring. *ch1, dc3* around, until you have four 3dc-clusters separated by ch3.
Pull the yarn tail to close the circle, and then finish the round by slip stitching into the back loop of your beginning chain two.
Round 2
Chain three (counting as 1 dc), then work two double crochet (dc) into the ch1 space from the previous round. Chain 1.  Work *3dc, ch1, 3dc*  into each of the next corners. When you get to the last corner, work three double crochet into the ch1 space, chain 1 and join with a slip stitch.  Slip stitch into the top of the 2 dc from previous round then sl st into the ch 1 space.  
Round 3
Chain three (counting as 1 dc), then work one double crochet (dc) into the ch1 space from the previous round.  Work one more double crochet but when there are 2 loops on the hook attach red yarn by making a slip knot, inserting it on the hook and pull through the 2 loops (of green) on the hook.  Break green yarn and weave in ends.  (Working in red) Chain one, Work *3dc, ch1, 3dc* in each corner and *2dc* in next stitch, work one more double crochet but when there are 2 loops on the hook attach green yarn by making a slip knot, inserting it on the hook and pull through the 2 loops (of red) on the hook.  Work 2 corners and 1 side in green changing to red during the last dc of green in the corner.  With red, work three double crochet into the ch1 space, Work *3dc, ch1, 3dc*  into the corner, slip stitch to top of beginning ch.
Round 4
Change to red yarn, *3dc* in next stitch, Work *3dc, ch1, 3dc* in corner, work *3dc* in next stitch twice, change to green during last dc (DO NOT BREAK OFF RED), work *3dc, ch 3, switch to red yarn, break green, work *3dc* in next stitch twice, work 1 dc in corner in red, ch 3, switch to green (DO NOT BREAK RED) work *3dc* in corner , break green, work *3dc* in next stitch twice, work *3dc, ch1, 3dc* in corner, work *3dc* in next stitch, join with sl st in top of beginning chain. sl st in top of 2 dc and into ch 1 space of previous round
Round 5
Ch 3, 2 dc in same stitch, Work *3dc* in each side and *3dc, ch1, 3dc* in each corner, join with sl st in top of beginning chain. sl st in top of 2 dc and into ch 1 space of previous round

4  Crochet Santa Boot Cuffs-with pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: December 21, 2017 06:00:39 AM
Getting in the Christmas spirit isn't complete without boot cuffs!  I saw the idea on Pinterest but there was no pattern so I made my own
Materials:
H hook
small amounts of yarn:
Red
Black
White
Yellow
With Red:
Ribbing Row 1: (this is the ribbed cuff)-Ch 11, slip stitch into 2nd chain from hook and each chain, turn (10 stitches)
Ribbing Row 2: ch 1, slip stitch into back loop only, turn (10 stitches)
Continue row 2 until ribbing stretches comfortably across area between calf and knee cap (this ribbing has wonderful stretching capabilities.)  I made 20 rows of ribbing which is actually 40 rows but the way the ribbing bunches up it makes 20 rows
bring cuff up to first row and single crochet edges together.  (if you want to check if it will slip over your calf at this point before proceeding go ahead)
Row 3: chain 1, place 30 stitches around edge of cuff (I did 1 sc in each of the tops of 2 ribs, then 1 sc in between the next 2 ribs all around), join with slip stitch.  Don't cut the red yarn yet, you'll use it again real soon
Row 4: Change to black, 1 sc in each stitch around (30 stitches), join
Row 5: 1 sc in each stitch around (30 stitches), join.  Cut black yarn
Row 6: Change back to red, 1 sc in each stitch around (30 stitches), join
Row 7: 1 sc in each stitch around (30 stitches), join. Cut red yarn
Row 8: Change to white yarn, 1 sc in each stitch around (30 stitches), join
Row 9: 1 sc in each stitch around (30 stitches), join.  Cut white yarn
Weave in ends.  The basic cuff is done!  YAY!
Now to make the buckle:
With yellow yarn chain 16, join to form a circle.
ch 1, 2 sc in same stitch, sc in next 3 stitches, 3 sc in next stitch, sc in next 3 stitches, 3 sc in next stitch, sc in next 3 stitches, 3 sc in next stitch, sc in next 3 stitches.  Join and cut yarn.  Stitch to cuff using an invisible stitch
Now go out and deck those halls!

3 trees?!?  Totally jealous!
1 tree, 2 dogs and a mish mash of ornaments, no color scheme, some handmade from the kids, some handed down for generations, but all filled with love

I am showering my Secret Santa with crochet gifts this year, she has a Frenchie named Auggie Doggie and he's the cutest stinking kid!
Here is the graph (I totaled out the numbers of each color on the side to make for easier counting)
Finished!

Here it is sort of finished, I was so excited I snapped a quick pic in the car

I still have to crochet a back, I was thinking about a Frenchie butt! and add a border (esay peasy)

8  Rudolph Corner to Corner in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: November 29, 2017 05:57:10 AM
Repeat crafter me is slowly becoming my favorite pattern go-to site!  Her patterns are wonderfully written and easy to follow
I made this for my secret Santa at work and although I should have paid attention to the size better I am pleased with it.  I was hoping it would be bigger but it'll be perfect for a table topper or a chair
Here is the pattern:

9  4 pies 1pan-best Thanksgiving ever in Dessert by bethntim on: November 22, 2017 01:56:10 PM
To maximize oven space we decided to combine all 4 of our pies into 1 pan
I did make a wall out of leftover pie crust so they wouldn't run together. We've got apple, pumpkin, cherry, and pecan
Best idea ever!

Before:

After I got my slice (I had to get in on all the action
