Off my hook

Reminder that I no longer keep up this blog regularly. My main posts are at https://crochetcabanablog.wordpress.com/ .

Here are a few things off my hook recently.

The first few are from a course with the American Crochet Association. Some of the stitches have videos. There are 30 stitches in the course I'm currently taking. I'm enjoying going through them. These are paid courses, not free.

The first one is the Bobble Stitch.

This one is the Jeobneun stitch

This is the Cable Towers.

This one is #24 Climbing Shells. Very simple repeat. I used I Love This Yarn #353 Menthe Dye Lot 911010 and an I hook.

You find the pattern in Leisure Arts leaflet 63 Easy to Crochet Pattern Stitches Combine to Make an Heirloom Afghan. This is a 1987 leaflet that has been reprinted oodles of times. You can find it many places. At Knit Picks  the leaflet is on sale as I write this. You can buy and read reviews at Amazon as well.

These scarves are straight double crochet, worked horizontally.  I chained 203 with a Furls K hook and the Woolspun yarn on this one. The color is Forest Print. They are about 6-7″ by about 76″.

This is my Super Bowl scarf. I saw a pattern at Lion Brand to make one and even though I didn't actually watch the Super Bowl, I made the scarf. 

I chained a little bit more to make it wider. For half time I worked 25 rows of double crochet. There were 99 rows without half time ones. I measured it at the end of the 4th quarter section and it was about 48″. I decided to just add more on the end to make it close to 60″ which I think of as the average length needed for a scarf.

I used I Love This Yarn cranberry and a gold that did not have a label. It wasn’t planned, just what I had on hand.

The darker cotton is Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend. The color is called Cloud Nine. The blues and greens are made with Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Emerald Energy Ombre.

Happy crocheting!
