Here are several more crocheted mini Christmas stockings I made for the Warmth for Warriors drive. These stockings feature a scalloped top edging.
The socks were crocheted using this Christmas stocking pattern which I just modified a bit. The edging was then added to the top of the sock by crocheting a scalloped edging and a hanging loop. The first two I used a lightweight yarn for the scalloped edge so I only worked 4 DC between 1 skipped stitch. The pattern is as follows:
Attach lightweight yarn at back heel edge of sock with a single crochet (SC) […]
I have wanted to learn how to crochet using a Tunisian stitch and decided to try a small recycled material project to start out. I used a strip of t-shirt cut about 1/4 inch wide and then stretched it gently to curl it into what I like to call curled t-yarn.
Using the curled t-shirt yarn and a I sized Tunisian crochet hook, I set out to crochet myself a t-yarn coffee cup mat. I found this Tunisian stitch picture tutorial very helpful in learning the basic stitch.
To crochet my coffee coaster, I started with a chain on of 16 stitches with my t-shirt yarn and […]
I present a pink and grey plastic bag tote featuring a netting stitch look. I crocheted this tote bag using recycled grey retail bags and pink plastic newspaper sacks. Both types of plastic bags were cut into strips using these plarn making tutorials.
I just love the fish net look of this stitch in pink plarn. It’s just so pretty looking. The contrast between the pink plarn and grey really works well together.
I made some minor changes from the original plastic net market bag pattern. I used a J (6 mm) crochet hook when I crocheted the pink plarn section. The pink recycled bags are thinner and the J hook makes a tighter stitch. I also did 23 rounds finishing […]
I love crocheting! I don’t know if you all know that but it’s true. I get caught up at times or as DH says obsessed with crocheting. I crochet with recycled plastic bags, vcr video and cassette tapes, and I crochet with t-shirts cut into yarn and I crochet with yarn. I’ll crochet with just about any material I can get my hands on. Anyway with that being said, I’ll share some of my latest crocheting.
I present my cotton candy baby set. The material looks like spun cotton candy as I used a strand of pink worst weight yarn along with a white fingering yarn held together when I crocheted these items. I followed my cuffed baby booties crochet pattern to make the booties. The hat is just a basic beanie and I added my scalloped crocheted edging to the hat to finish it off.
I just love these booties and the crochet pattern is free.[…]

A friend at Ravelry shared this pretty crocheted scalloped hat edging. It just looked so nice on the baby hat she crocheted that I wanted to try it.
You can use any baby or child’s hat pattern you have and just add this crocheted scalloped edging to the beanie once it’s finished. The pink and blue baby hats were crocheted using a basic beanie pattern. I then added the edging to both. The only difference is that the blue hat has a round of single crochet stitching around it before I added the scallop edging round.
Turn, Sc in back loops only working on the inside of the hat so the scallops face out when folded to the outside of finished hat.[…]
