I’m super excited to share the latest #CbyDH pattern! The Aleteo Scarf. This crochet pattern is very easy and is a great introduction to lace crochet. The pattern includes written instructions as well as a chart and works up really quick. I made the sample in a couple hours. It even includes blocking instructions and photos.
Did you know? Aleteo is Spanish for “flutter”.
While I was taking photos of the sample scarf, a baby cardinal was taking her first flight. The nest was located in the bushes next to my front porch. All spring the parents guarded the nest. When I set up my camera and white board for the photos I had no idea what was about to happen. The baby was ready to take her first flight. She flew back and forth over my head searching for a safe place to land. I could feel the flutter of her wings as she passed above me. What fun it was to witness the beauty of nature up close.
You can work this scarf in yarn weights from 1 to 3 (fingering to dk). And you can easily adjust the length and/or number of stitches.
I’m super excited to share the latest #CbyDH pattern! The Tiffany Scarf. Create a beautiful lace scarf with this easy crochet pattern. If you use the suggested yarn, you can make the scarf as it is written with just one ball! Written for fingering weight yarn but instructions are provided to adjust the length for any gauge and any weight from lace to DK. The scarf is stitched the lengthwise. A chart is included with the full written instructions. The entire scarf can be completed in just a few hours.
So, why is it called the Tiffany Scarf? I don’t know! I just thought it fit. 🙂
YIPPEE! They arrived! The packaged didn’t even make it to the house before I ripped it opened. And they are gorgeous! In May I posted about a crochet potholder swap (Post 1 and Post 2) and I’m super excited to share with you the three beautiful potholders I received in the swap. I can’t wait for the next one 🙂
The round purple/teal was crocheted by Sybil. The pattern is called Disc Disc.
I’m super excited to share the latest #CbyDH pattern! The del mar Scarf. The crochet pattern is pretty easy. There is one tricky part where one motif ends and another begins (all worked in one piece, seamlessly!) but the scarf is charted so if you get a little confused, you can always refer to the chart. After you make a couple motifs you won’t even need the pattern, it is that easy!
Did you know? del mar is Spanish for “from the sea” or “of the sea”.
I remember, in either 1st or 2nd grade, an elementary teacher of mine having a huge calendar in her room. Each month had a saying but the only one I really remember was March-In like a lion, out like a lamb. I remember thinking it was really weird-how could a lion turn into a lamb??? and what does that have to do with March??? For whatever reason this saying stuck with me for many, many (many…) years. So when it came time to publish my latest design, I thought the perfect day would March 1! I’m pleased to announce that March 2016 is indeed, coming in like a lion. A Peek-a-Boo Lion to be exact.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Also perfect for weddings, anniversaries or “just ’cause I love you” days! What’s different about this pattern? Pattern includes instructions for hearts as well as pre-made templates. Crochet, print and mail. It’s that easy!
I finished what will likely be my last charitable project for 2015, the Melo Hat by ACCROchet. It’s a super cute hat. I had to adjust the pattern a little as my yarn was much thinner than the suggested yarn. I ended up adding an additional pattern repeat and working a lot of extras rows. It’s super slouchy with a removable pom-pom. I hope a young teen will enjoy it. I’m super happy I was able to complete this during the Gift-A-Long on Ravelry. There is a slim chance I’ll have time to finish another hat before 2016 starts. But if not, I’m pleased with the results to date!
The hat weighs over 4.25 ounces.
