Bath Mat

Well Hello everyone!  Isnt it a beautiful day?!?  I have just been so busy around here and just loving it.  I have been working on this Bath Mat for several days and Im going to give you the pattern.  I tried it out last night for the first time  and it worked great! It needs to be washed and blocked to make it look right but it is really pretty.  Finished size: Approximately 16 X 20″.

Im going to make another one for my husbands bathroom.  Im just sure he will love it.  So here is the pattern.

Bath Mat

Use 2 contrasting cotton color yarns.  I used a cone of each color and didnt use all of either color.  If that helps.

Stitches used: ch (chain), sc (single crochet), tre (treble crochet).

Size G hook

Row 1:  ch 44,  sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 1, turn.

Row 2:  *sc in first sc, tre in next sc*, repeat from * across, ch 1, turn.

Row 3:  sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn.

Rows 4-7: Repeat rows 2 & 3 twice.

Row 8 – 52:  sc in ea sc across, ch1, turn.

Row 53-60:  repeat rows 2 & 3 three times, fasten off.

Border: Using contrasting color slip stitch to any corner.

Round 1:  sc 3 times in corner, sc in each stitch across to next corner, sc 3 times in that corner, work sc in spaces along edge to next corner, sc 3 times in corner, sc in each stitch across, sc 3 times in corner, work sc in spaces along edge to next corner, sl st to first sc made, ch 1.

Rounds 2-10:  sc 3 times in middle sc of 3 sc group, sc in ea sc across, sc in middle sc of 3 sc group, sc in each sc across, sc in middle sc of 3 sc group, sc in each sc across, sc in middle of 3 sc group, sc across, sl st to first sc made, ch 1.  At the end of row 10 fasten off or if you prefer a bigger border then just keep on going.

Weave in ends. Enjoy.

Pocket Scarf

Aren”t these cool?!?  I found this pattern at www.allfreecrochet.com .  Its great!  I love it! I helps keep me warm. But not too warm.  And the pockets can carry my kleenex or whatever else I might want to stick into them.  It was so easy to make too! Make one for yourself or someone you care about.  I made mine out of wool so its extra cozy. The lapel is done in my favorite rib stitch.

 

So As always may your handwork be blessed and your feltwork be fulfilling!  Happy Creating!

Potholder

Well, I found a great stitch to use as a potholder.  Its called the rib stitch in crochet.  I just love it!  It has depth to it which makes it perfect for a potholder.  Heres the pattern:

you will need:  worsted weight 100% cotton yarn, size F crochet hook.

Stitches used:  ch,dc, fpdc,bpdc, hdc.

1 skein makes 2 potholders.

Make a slip knot and put it on your hook. Chain in multiples of 2.  I chained 20. DC in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch accross.

Row 2:** * FPDC around 2nd dc, BPDC around next DC * repeat from *to* across, hdc in last dc or ch 2 made, ch 2 turn** repeat from ** to **  for entire piece.

If there is a fpdc put a fpdc and if there is a bpdc put a bpdc. Follow what the pattern does.

Watch the video. Click here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4DBUUScYgY  This is super easy!  You will love making things with this stitch.  And as always may your hands be blessed and your fiber work fullfilling!                 HappyCreating !
