Bi-Weekly Pattern Share

Hi everyone!

Time to share some patterns I have been following for the past couple of weeks and a project that I want to get started soon:) Here are the patterns.

The first pattern I want to share is a Lion Brand pattern that I found while looking for a scarf pattern for men. You can find the pattern on Lion Brand’s website here. It was really easy and it actually looks like waffles. Yummy!

Here are my results:

I really the texture this pattern gives and it’s just double crochets so it was a simple and quick project.

The second pattern I want to share was inspired by Stacey’s Vintage Style Scarf that is found on her The Veggie Mama blog. I like the look of the scarf, but didn’t have the right yarn at the time I was making it so I made up my own pattern. Here is what I did differently…

For Scarf

CH 28

Row 1: DC in 4th CH from hook and DC till  the end. Turn. (24).

Row 2: CH 3. DC in each ST across (24).

Row 3 – desired length: Repeat Row 2 until desired length.

Finish off. Weave in ends.

I just did the pattern until I ran out of yarn 😛

For the shell stitch edge, I followed Staci’s Very Pink Knit Youtube video and for the flowers I used the following patterns.

For Small Flower

Round 1: 6 DC in MR (6).

Round 2: 2 DC in each DC from Round 1. SLST to  (12).

Round 3: CH 3. 2 DC in same ST. SC into next ST. *3 DC in next ST, SC into next ST.* Repeat from * to * around. SLST into first ST.

Finish off. Leave a tail to sew flower onto scarf.

For Big Flower

Round 1: 6 DC in MR (6).

Round 2: 2 DC in each DC from Round 1. SLST to first ST (12).

Round 3: 2 DC in each DC from Round 2. SLST to first ST (24).

Round 3: CH 3. 2 DC in same ST. SC into next ST. *3 DC in next ST, SC into next ST.* Repeat from * to * around. SLST into first ST.

Finish off. Leave a tail to sew flower onto scarf.

That’s it! I think it will look great with different colour combinations 🙂

Here are my results:

I also want to try the original pattern when I have the right yarn because it looks really soft, but I think this pattern looks nice too 🙂

The last project I want to share is something that I want to start soon and have been eyeing for awhile. It is a Corner to Corner Baby Blanket Pattern that I saw on The Crochet Crowds blog. I have never made a Corner to Corner blanket before, but Sarah has been posting Corner to Corner Christmas Themed Squares for a blanket on her Repeat Crafter Me Blog and it made me really want to make one. I will be posting pictures of my progress when I start the baby blanket 🙂 I have to finish my bobble stitch pixel blanket first though…

Those are the patterns for this pattern share. Good luck if you want to try them for yourself!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Bi-Weekly Pattern Share

Hi Everyone!

Time to share some patterns again! I am sharing a pattern I used for an order that was a lot of fun to make, a project I completed that I am giving away, and the final pattern I want to share is something that I really wanted to make, but made it with the wrong kind of yarn so I unravelled it 😦 Lets get started!

The first pattern I am sharing is from Sarah’s Repeat Crafter Me Blog and it is a Minnie Mouse hat. I used the instructions for the Ninja Turtle Hat (also on her blog) since I was making a toddler size. I just changed to the pink yarn after 10 rows. It is really cute and I love how it turned out. I cut out little circles instead of using white buttons since I didn’t have any. It was a really quick project and makes the perfect gift if you are running in a hurry.

Here are my results:

I also made some adjustments for the ears and bow so it would fit the dimensions of the toddler hat.

Ears

Round 1: 12 DC in MR. SLST. (12)

Round 2: CH 2. 2 DC in each DC from previous round. SLST. (24)

Round 3: CH 1. 1 HDC in each DC around. SLST. (24)

Finish off.

For the Bow, I chained 23 instead of chaining 16 and I used a DC instead of HDC. I followed Sarah’s pattern for the structure of the bow and just had to attach the felt circles afterwards. For the dots, I used white felt and cut out 23 circles.

This was a really fun pattern to make, and I recommend you try it out!

The second pattern I want to share is a infinity scarf that I made as a present. I used Brenda’s pattern that I found on her Ravelry page. It is written in UK terms, so a treble crochet is actually a double crochet in US terms. This was an easy and quick project that looks really nice.

Here are my results:

Doesn’t the texture look great? Try making your own 🙂

The final pattern I want to share is my incomplete/unravelled project.  The pictures of the completed place mats found on Purl Bee’s website are really nice. I will definitely try this again when I have the right yarn. I think it will add a very nice touch to a place setting on the dinner table. As you can tell I used the yarn from this failed project for the cowl 😛 and also for the bag I just finished making. I posted about it in another pattern share, but will be posting pictures of the completed bag soon!

Here are my results for the place mat:

I was almost finished, but it started looking weird and curling. I will try making it again using thinner yarn next time 🙂 Enjoy!

Those are the projects I’ve been working on. What about you? Share them in the comments below!
