Mother Bear Flower Skirt

April 2, 2019 No comments yet

Here is a new Mother Bear idea that I wanted to share. Add a flower skirt to your bear. I crocheted this Mother Bear body all in BLO and added this skirt to finish off my bear. The head is crocheted in both loops.

This bear was crocheted using Red Heart yarn in a Flamenco stripe skein to crochet the Mother Bear. Then I added a skirt around the waist using some plum Love This Cotton yarn. I had just a small piece of the Flamenco stripe yarn left in pink so used that for the reverse SC trim around the bottom of the skirt.

Directions for skirt:

Starting at back of bear for attaching row, single crochet (SC) around the waist of the bear to start the skirt and join to beginning. *Ch 2 and working in the round and without turning, work 1 Double Crochet (DC) in next stitch then 2 DC in next stitch*. Repeat around and join with slip stitch to top of chain 2.

BLO Mini Christmas Stockings

July 14, 2018 1 comment

I have a new mini Christmas stocking pattern to share here at My Recycled Bags. This stocking is crocheted all in the back loop only or BLO as the commonly known abbreviation in the crocheting world.

The pattern can be worked in worst weight yarns for a 6 inch long stocking from top to toe. Or if you use an Aran or light weight yarn, the stockings measure about 5.5 inches long using a G (4 mm) crochet hook. I have shared a few photos here of the basic pattern, but feel free to crochet this pattern in stripes, work the first few rounds of the toe in a different color or even make a scrap yarn stocking by crocheting a mash of colors.

As always, here is the free BLO mini Christmas stocking pattern for your crocheting pleasure.
