Here is my Seahawks inspired Red Heart heartwarming crochet scarf. I used Red Heart comfort yarn in melon green for the main body of the scarf and trimmed it using Red Heart navy. I followed the heartwarming crochet scarf pattern but did do a few extra rows so the scarf was a bit longer. My finished length is 60 inches long and the scarf is 5 inches wide.
Overall a simple and easy pattern to crochet by Red Heart. The only thing I wasn’t sure about was the placement of the edge trim but I think it turned out fine with the contrasting yarn. Here is a closeup of the stitching I did with the contrasting blue yarn.[…]
Mandala crocheted dishcloths are just so pretty. I love how you can use different scraps of yarn to create beautiful designs. I have such a big bag of cotton scraps that I thought this would be the perfect idea to use some of it up. So… I found this easy Mandala pattern and tweaked it just a bit to crochet some dishcloths.
Pattern note: In the pattern when it says to work 2DCtog in the next stitch, it means […]
Everyone at Ravelry has been celebrating the Olympics and the Mother Bear Group has been busy making Olympic Mother Bears. I crocheted 3 Olympic bears during the games. It was fun to make the bears for charity and also participate in the 2016 Ravellenics Games at Ravelry.
Here are the 3 different teddy bears I completed in the Toy Toss event. The first bear is Katie bear I crocheted in honor of Katie Ledecky. Katie bear is posing with her first gold medal she won in swimming for the USA.
Next is Aly bear in honor of Aly Raisman of the 2016 USA gymnastics team. […]
It was super hero theme in July for the Mother Bear Project at Ravelry. I decided that I wanted to crochet a Superman teddy bear for the project.
Here is Superman or maybe I should say Superbear.
I crocheted my bear in the round and seamless using this crochet bear tutorial. I used a piece of gold felt to draw the S logo for my Superman costume with markers and then just glued it onto the bear. I crocheted the red cape by attaching red yarn to the side of the neck and single crocheting around to the other side of the neck. I then crocheted in double crochet stitching until I had the desired length for the Superman cape.
These theme teddy bears are just so much fun to make. You can see all the different bears that were crocheted and knitted for the children at our Ravelry […]
I crocheted this keyhole scarf using the Ashlyn Scarflet pattern. This is a free crochet pattern found over at Craftybegonia’s blog with the scarflet pattern found here.
The pattern stitch is very pretty and here is a closeup of the scarf end area.
I used 3.6 ounces of worst weight yarn to complete the scarf as I did a few extra rows on the decorative ends to make it a bit longer. I used a H (5 mm) crochet hook on my project. The finished length of my scarflet is about 38 inches long by 5-1/4 inches wide. One correction I did find was on second side at end of row 1, I believe should be only Ch 1, turn; rather than Ch 4. Also on row 3, I repeated row 2 of the Urchain Stitch in each Ch 2 space by working 1 SC, Ch 2, 1 SC in the space.
Here is one more photo showing the scarf open […]
Each month the Mother Bear group over at Ravelry features a theme for the Mother Bear Project. I wanted to share these two Star Trek characters I crocheted.
Meet Mother Bears James T Kirk and Scotty Scott of starship Enterprise. I tried my best to copy their uniforms from the original Star Trek series including the emblems on their uniforms.
Both of these bears were crocheted using the seamless crochet pattern from the Mother Bear Project. I have a seamless mother bear tutorial that I have posted with helpful tips. In my tutorial I show how to crochet the bears seamless, […]
It is time again to start making baby blankets for the 2016 NICU Baby Blanket Drive. Each year Kathryn over at Crochetville makes and collects baby blankets for the yearly delivery just before Christmas. This is the 10th year of the drive and my 7th as a contributor.
Here are two round ripple baby blanket I crocheted this month. Both of these were crocheted using Aggie May’s round ripple pattern.
The centers were crocheted just using up scraps of yarn I had on hand. Then I used pink and white Red Heart yarns on the first one that measures 24 inches wide. The 2nd round ripple blanket was crocheted […]
Sharing my latest granny stitch kitchen items I crocheted. I used jute cotton yarn for the main yarn color and added forest green cotton for contrast while creating these granny square items.
Potholder crocheted using the granny stitch potholder pattern. I crocheted the center in forest green cotton and then worked the pattern in jute cotton until row 8. Worked row 8 in forest green and row 9 in jute cotton. Trimmed in single crochet with the forest green and added a hanging loop from a recycled water bottle ring.
The granny square dishcloth was crocheted using my […]
This is post to help those using the seamless crochet pattern for the Mother Bear Project. I purchased the seamless crochet pattern from the MBP site. After participating in a CAL for the bears, several of us found some valuable tips to help in crocheting the seamless bears. I want to share with you all the helpful ideas and pattern tips that we want to pass along.
I love to crochet in the round without having to turn or join. So after getting the seamless crochet bear pattern, I set out to figure out a way to do just that.
Go to the official Mother Bear Site by clicking on the logo below.
So as I have stated, I wanted to crochet my bear in the round without joining or working chain 1s for each row. Here is a leg piece to show the outcome. This particular leg has just 4 rows in the bear body color and then 11 rows for the pants up to the point where you join the legs together to work the rest of the pants. This varies from the original pattern but depending on your yarn, design, and other factors, crochet as needed to obtain the size and design you desire.
Here is a leg piece to share, I end at the side of the leg and simply join a new color with a SC (single crochet) stitch and work in the round. […]
