V Stitch Blanket and Scarf Pattern

February 22, 2017 4 comments

I have a new crochet stitch that I am just in love with. It is called the V Stitch and it is very easy and simple to crochet many different projects using this stitch. I have already used the stitch pattern to make a blanket and a scarf.

There are several different versions of the V Stitch and I do mine without a chain stitch between my double crochet stitches. It makes for a less-holey project and works up faster for me without having to chain between stitches.

To crochet the small blanket or lapghan, I chained 101 stitches to start with a H (5 mm) crochet hook.

Seahawks Heartwarming Scarf

September 13, 2016 1 comment

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.

Ashlyn Scarflet

July 10, 2016 1 comment

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

Crocheted Seahawks Gear

November 6, 2015 1 comment

It’s football season and people love to have their favorite team’s gear on. I found that if I combined Red Heart Windsor Blue yarn and Spring Green, they were a near match for the Seattle Seahawks gear colors. So… I crocheted several hats and scarves using the Seahawks yarn colors.

I am very pleased with these yarns as they are reasonably priced and are just the right shades to represent the Seahawk colors.

Baby Doll Fun Fur Hat & Booties

August 16, 2015 1 comment

Here are a few baby doll fun fur projects I crocheted. I crocheted a hat and booties for this 11 inch small baby doll. I also crocheted a little matching scarf to go along with the doll set.

I didn’t really follow a pattern for the hat but started with a H (5 mm) crochet hook with a chain of 3 and joined to make a circle. Next I worked 6 single crochets (SC) in the ring, and next round I worked 2 SC into each stitch (12). Then next round, work 2 SC in next stitch and then 1 SC in next stitch, repeat around. I evenly increased to about 28 stitches for the hat and worked even a round or two so it fit my small baby doll as shown. Finished size is 4 inches long with a 9 inch circumference.

This isn’t written as a precise pattern directions as you have to just check the hat as you go along to make sure it fits your particular doll’s head and you get the size you need. Working with fun fur is hard to find each stitch so I just focused on getting the fit I needed rather than the stitch count. So just improvise as you work the rounds to get the size and look you desire for your doll.

Booties

For the booties, I chained 3 and joined into a circle.

As you may know, I love basic and easy crochet patterns. So I set out to crochet myself a basic winter cowl scarf that I could wear to keep me warm. Not only can this cowl scarf keep my neck warm, it also can double as a hooded scarf.

I just love this crocheted cowl scarf. It’s is simple to crochet and works up fast. I hope you will find this pattern useful and let me know if you have any questions as you work the free crochet pattern below.

Crocheted Chain Stitch Scarf

August 26, 2014 1 comment

I wanted to share my recent crocheted chain stitch scarf project. Chain stitch scarves are nothing really new but I wanted to try out the technique and post the results. Here is my first crocheted chain stitch scarf.

The finished size of this scarf is 5 inches wide by 6 feet long. I did a total of 20 rows. I would have crocheted a larger scarf but I only had a half a skein of each color of vintage sparkle yarn. One skein was a solid blue and the other was a variegated white to blue skein. The 6 foot length is a youth sized scarf and 7 feet is a more suitable length for an adult scarf.

Chain Stitch Scarf Pattern

H (5 mm) crochet hook
2.5-3 ozs Medium weight yarn in 2 colors (total yarn needed is nearly 6 ozs for youth size or 7 ozs for adult)

Chain a length of 6 feet long or more for the scarf.

Crocheted Neck Wrap Scarf

November 13, 2010 11 comments


I present my crocheted neck wrap scarf. It is crocheted in the round and just slips over your head. As shown, it can be worn up over the chin and nose. It would make an excellent neck warmer and face warmer for winter and for snowmobiling.

You can make it smaller and larger as desired by just adjusting your beginning chain. I have made several of these and found the snugger fitting ones work better for staying up on the nose. You can wear it just around the neck but this scarf gives you the option of pulling it up around the chin and nose to keep you extra warm.

This is a very quick and easy project that uses less than 3 ounces of worst weight yarn. These neck wrap scarves make excellent gifts and would be a great Christmas gift too. Enjoy the free crochet pattern below.
