Tunisian Classes

Here soon, (first week of March) I’ll be teaching a basic Tunisian Crochet class at our local Fine Arts Center, in downtown Rock Springs.

I’ll be writing up some simple patterns for these classes, as well as some tutorials, so those may make an appearance here.

Please message me if you’re interested in my class! I’ll be posting days and times soon. I’m hoping to get a nice interchangeable crochet hook set to take with me..I may post a review about it once I decide upon and buy one.

Wee Dolly

My daughter has a strong affinity for babies lately, and I thought I’d make her a soft lil baby that she could carry around with her.  I made it fairly simple too, no facial features but I did make some rosy cheeks with one of Roxy’s red crayons (works well!) but feel free to embroider a face or whatever you like.

Snappy Cowl

So, with the other half of that skein of hot pink red heart, I whipped up a cowl really quickly. I love when I can get 2 projects out of 1 skein!

It’s not a tight cowl, but rather hangs a bit loosely. And I think it took all of an hour to make.

M hook

WW yarn-I used half a skein of red heart

Ch 60. Being careful not to twist, join to first ch w sl st.

Round 1: ch 1, sc in same st as join, sc around. Join w sl st to first sc. 60 sts

Round 2: ch 2, dc in same st as join, dc in each st around thru the back loop. Join to first dc w sl st. 60 sts

Round 3: ch 1, sc in same st as join, sc in each st around thru the back loop. Join to first sc w sl st. 60 sts

Repeat rounds 2 & 3 four more times.

Break yarn, fasten off. Weave in ends.

 

It’s a simple cowl, but nice and cushy because of the big stitches!

Megan’s Hat

So, I’m still making Christmas presents>.< I was quite behind this year!

Today I whipped up a hat for my friend Megan..still need to do her husband Mark’s hat!

I really like how this came out! I’m gonna make myself one and play around with the post stitches some more.  See how much I can get them to twist! If  I get the patience I’ll probably do this in a blanket too.

And because of the K hook this works up really fast! hooray!

K hook

H hook

WW yarn-I used some hot pink red heart

 

With k, 10 dc into magic loop.

Round 1: Ch 2, 2 dc in each st around. Join to first dc. 20 sts

Round 2: ch 2, dc in first st, *2 dc in next st, fpdc around next* around. 30 sts

Round 3: Ch 2, *dc in first 2 dc, fptrc around previous fpdc, dc in top of fpdc* repeat *to* around to end, 2 dc in last st. 40 sts

Lights out! Eye Mask

My mother is prone to the occasional migraine, so I thought she might like a nice eye mask as part of her Christmas present. However, I didn’t like any of the patterns I came across. So I decided to write one up for her! I made it a little over sized to block out more light, and tried to give it some lift over the eyes. It holds onto your head by way of chains that go around your ears, as I didn’t want anything you had to lay your head uncomfortably on, though you could easily change this to some elastic or a band that goes around your head if you so desire.

Lights Out! Eye Mask

Size E hook

WW Yarn in MC and CC

With MC, Ch 16

Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook in the back loop and in each back loop across. 14 sts

Row 2: ch 2, 2 hdc in first st, hdc to last st, 2 hdc. 16 sts

Row 3: ch 2, hdc across 16 sts

Rows 4: ch 2, hdc to last st, 2 hdc in last st  17 sts

Rows 5-6 :ch 2, hdc across

Row 7: ch 2, hdc to last st, 2 hdc in last st. 18 sts

Rows 8-9: ch 2, across

Row 10: ch 2, hdc2tog, hdc to end. 17 sts

Row 11: ch 2, hdc to last 2 sts, hdc2tog. 16 sts

Row 12: ch 2, hdc2tog, hdc to end. 15 sts

Row 13: ch 2, hdc in next 6 sts, hdc3tog, hdc in next 3 sts, hdc2tog. 12 sts

Row 14: ch 2, hdc in next 3 sts, hdc3tog, hdc to end. 10 sts

Row 15: ch 2, hdc across

Break yarn, fasten off.

Make a second half, same as first. Break yarn, leaving tail for sewing. Sew two halves together. Weave in loose ends.

I did a picot border on mine.

For a no frills border, join CC on a corner and sc around, placing 2 sc in corners.

For some fun, join CC on a corner, *sc, [sc, ch 3, sl st into side of sc]* around. This makes a little picot border.

Whichever way you choose to make a border, at the end of it, sl st to first st, ch 20, sl st to matching corner.

Join yarn to other side, ch 20, sl st to matching corner.

Weave in ends

Close up on the chain on edge.

I’ll try to add a picture later of me wearing it. Hard to take a pic of yourself whilst wearing an eye mask..

Petunia

I realize that all my posts of late have been free patterns, but that’s where my mind is during the holidays. Crafting and creativity and fuzzy yarn/feelings.

I made a lovely cabled neckwarmer by request for a lady recently, and decided I wanted one for myself tonight after seeing this cabled tunisian scarf : (http://nikkiinstitches.wordpress.com/2010/03/09/tunisian-crochet-cabled-scarf/)

I decided to do mine in tunisian as well so I could practice cables in tunisian. I took the good advice to do yarn overs in between cables that nikki in stitches mentions on the above link. It works well to space out your cables.

I’m sure I’ll keep up on the free patterns, and don’t forget to check out my other blog, cloverchild.wordpress .com for additional patterns and ideas! 🙂

Petunia Cabled Tunisian Neckwarmer

Size H hook-recommend afghan or long H hook with a stopper of sorts

Cable hook/double ended needle

WW Yarn

Button

Needle & thread

Note: Always skip first st when working pattern

Ch 16

Pick up back loops across chains. 16 sts

Return pass-yo, pull thru one loop, *yo pull thru 2 loops* *to* across. Work this return pass same throughout pattern.

Rows 1-2:  tps in 2nd st, tks in next 4 sts, [tks2tog, yo] twice, tks in next 4 sts, tps in next st, tks in last st. Work return pass.

Row 3: tps in 2nd st, tks in next 2 sts, yo, tks in next 2 sts, [tks2tog,  yo] twice, tks in next 2 sts, yo, tks in next 2 sts, tps in next st, tks in last st. Work return pass.

Rows 4-5: repeat row 2, and do a yo above the one previously made between cable, and do not do a st into this yo. Work return pass.

Row 6: tps in 2nd st, tks in next 2 sts, slide these onto needle, skip the yo made, tks in next 2 sts, slide 2 sts from needle back onto hook, [tks2tog, yo] twice, tks in next 2 sts, slide these onto needle, skip the yo made, tks in next 2 sts, slide 2 sts from needle back onto hook, tps in next st, tks in last st. Work return pass. (be careful on the return pass-if you made your cable twist especially tight you may decrease on accident)

Repeat rows 1-6 nine more times.

Next row: repeat row 1

Buttonhole row: tps in 2nd st, tks in next 5 sts, yo twice, skip next 2 sts, tks in next 5 sts, tps in next st, tks in last st. Work return pass.

Next row: tks across, working 1 tks in buttonhole space. Work return pass.

Last row: bind off.

Fasten off.

Sew button onto first edge.

Mommy ‘n Me Mitts

It’s been freezing cold here in Wyoming, with below wind chills the past few days. It’s starting to warm up, but it’s still the beginning of winter here so we have a long winter to look forward to.

My daughter needed some gloves and so did I to combat the cold, and since I didn’t seem to like the patterns I came across I wrote us up a new one. It’s fairly straightforward, worked from top to bottom so you can try on as you go, and if you need to shorten or lengthen it’s easy to just add or subtract a a round 🙂

Materials:

WW Yarn-I used Vanna’s Choice-nicer to work with than I first thought!

F hook

D hook

Sewing Needle

Rounds are worked by turning your work after chaining, and putting your first hdc in the3rd st from your hook-your sl st from your last round. Then you join your round ends to the first hdc, not the chain. This pulls your round ends more tightly together than if you were not to turn your work, something important in mittens! Just count your stitches and remember to turn!

Baby’s Mitts

With F hook

Using the Magic loop,

8 hdc in magic loop, sl st to first hdc. Ch 2, turn.

Round 1: 2 hdc in each st around, sl st to first hdc. Ch 2, turn. 16 sts

Round 2: 2 hdc in first st, hdc in next 7 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in last 8 sts. Ch 2, turn. 18 sts

Round 3: 2 hdc in first st, hdc in next 8 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in last 9 sts. Ch 2, turn. 20 sts

Rounds 4-7: hdc in each st around, making sure to turn after ch 2. Do not ch 2 after round 5. Turn.

Round 8: ch 4 sts, skip 4 sts, hdc in next st, hdc to end of round. Do not join. Ch 2, turn.

Round 9: hdc around, including in each of the 4 chains. Join with sl st to first hdc. Ch 2, turn. 20 sts

Round 10: hdc in each st around. Ch 2, turn

Round 11: hdc2tog, hdc in next 8 sts, hdc2tog, hdc to end. Ch 2, turn. 18 sts

Round 12: switch to d hook, dc in each st around. Ch 3, turn. 18 sts

Rounds 13-14: *bpdc around first dc, fpdc around next dc* repeat * to * around, join to first bpdc. Ch 3, turn. 18 sts

At the end of round 14 on first mitten, ch 120 with f hook and leave a tail for sewing to other mitten.

Thumb:  With F hook, join yarn to thumb hole. Working in hdc, pick up 10 sts. Join with sl st to first hdc. Ch 2, turn.

Round 1: hdc2tog, hdc in next 3 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in last 3 sts. Ch 2, turn. 8 sts.

Round 2: hdc around. Ch 2, turn. 8 sts

Round 3: hdc2tog, hdc in next 2 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in last 2 sts. Break yarn leaving a tail for sewing. Sew last 6 sts together by threading needle with yarn thru the front loops of each st and pulling tight, thereby pulling sts neatly together.

Weave in ends.

Make second mitten as for first, omitting the big ol’ chain.

Sew chain to second mitten on cuff edge.

Mommy Mitts

UPDATED 12/2/10-A very nice reader pointed out that I mislabeled my rounds and mistyped some sts. Thanks for your comments!

Using Magic Loop and F hook,

Hdc 12 into loop. Ch 2, turn.

Round 1: 2 hdc in each st around. Ch 2, turn. 24 sts

Round 2: 2 hdc in first st, hdc in next 11 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in last 12 sts. Ch 2, turn. 26 sts

Round 3: 2 hdc in first st, hdc in next 12 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in last 13 sts. Ch 2, turn. 28 sts

Rounds 4- 15: hdc in each st around. Ch 2, turn. 28 sts Do not ch after round 15.

Round 16: Turn, ch 7, skip first 7 sts, hdc in next stitch, hdc in next 20 sts. Do not join. Ch 2, turn.

Round 17: hdc in each st around, and including an hdc in each of the 7 chains made. Join with sl st to first hdc. Ch 2, turn. 28 sts (Make sure you have one hdc after the chains, or you will end up with a hole in your work)

Rounds 18-19: Hdc in each st around. 28 sts.

Round 20: hdc2tog, hdc in next 12 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in last 12 sts. Ch 2, turn. 26 sts

Round 21: hdc2tog, hdc in next 11 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in last 11 sts. Ch 3, turn. 24 sts

Round 22: switch to D hook, and dc in each st around. Ch 3, turn. 24 sts

Rounds 23-24: *bpdc around first dc, fpdc around next dc* repeat *to* around, join to first bpdc. Ch 3, turn. 24 Sts

Break yarn, and weave in loose ends.

Thumb:  With F hook. Join yarn to side of thumb hole & pick up & hdc 16 sts. Ch 2, turn.

Round 1: hdc2tog, hdc in next 6 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in last 6 sts. Ch 2, turn. 14 sts

Round 2: hdc in each st around. Ch 2, turn. 14 sts

Round 3: hdc2tog, hdc in next 5 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in last 5 sts. Ch 2, turn. 12 sts

Rounds 4-5: hdc in each st around. Ch 2, turn. 12 sts

Round 6: hdc2tog, hdc in next 4 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in last 4 sts.

Break yarn leaving a tail for sewing. Thread tail onto sewing needle and thread and sew stitches together by going thru the front loops only of each stitch, thereby pulling sts neatly together.

Note: I like to have my joining round ‘hidden’ by being on my palm side. To do this, I flipped one glove (my right glove) inside out after doing the top increase rounds. The left side will have this happen already.

I did not put a chain on my pair of mommy mitts because I didn’t want one, but it would be easy-just work as for baby mitts, and make a little bit longer than the length of your arms so there is some slack to thread thru your coat arms.

I tried really hard to get the lil one to hold still in her mittens this morning, but she was so excited by them she ran around squealing trying to show the cat. At least she likes them, right? 🙂

Chunky peas baby hat

I keep getting hat ideas stuck in my head and they are just demanding to be let out! That and Roxy needs a few more hats for winter since it’s starting snowing more and more here …sigh.

This one came out looking like chunky peas..or, in my mother’s opinion, a moldy muffin! :p Ick! But, babies look absolutely adorable in anything, at least I think so.

I’ll add some more pictures tomorrow…as an afterthought I embroidered some circles and x’s onto it as well. Lighting at night is terrible in my house!

Chunky Peas Baby Hat

Nuance Hat

I’ve been on a hat kick lately..mostly for other people! So, I set out to make myself one the other day. I didn’t see a pattern that stuck out saying makememakeme! So I whipped up something for myself on a whim. I’ve been working on a sweater for my daughter using a certain pattern to make it look like knit ribbing, so that’s what I started with for this hat.

I then just added stuff as I felt like as I went along. I made it into a slightly slouchy hat, so it’s comfy and warm..good since it’s begun to snow off and on here :/

You can see the path of destruction by my daughter, since she’s had to stay inside because of the weather. .

So, if there are any errors in here I apologize. I’m writing this as an afterthought, just because I was pleased with how this turned out. More of a recipe than an exact pattern.  🙂

Nuance Hat

Size G hook

Size I hook

WW yarn-I just used some basic Red Heart because it’s overflowing in my stash..

Sewing needle

Special stitches-

Dss/double slip stitch-insert hook into stitch just worked, yo and pull up a loop, insert hook into next stitch, yo and pull up a loop, pull loop through two loops on hook.

X stitch- Skip first stitch, hdc in next stitch, hdc in skipped stitch.

Big puff stitch-yo, insert hook and draw up a loop four times, yo and pull through all loops on hook.

Small puff stitch-yo, insert hook and draw up a loop three times. yo and pull through all loops on hook.

With smaller hook, Ch 80 and without twisting join with a sl st to first chain.

Round 1: Ch 2, and hdc in each chain in the back loop of chain. Join with a sl st to ch 2. 80 sts

Round 2: Ch 1, turn. Starting with first hdc, dss around. Join with sl st to ch 1.

Round 3: Ch 2, turn. Hdc in the back loop only in each st around. Join with a sl st to ch 2.

Repeat rounds 2&3 four more times.

Round 12:  Ch 2, hdc in first st, *ch 1, skip next st, hdc in next st* repeat * to* around,  join with a sl st to ch 2.

Round 13: Ch 2, hdc around. You should still have 80 sts.

Round 14-17: Switch to I hook. Ch 2, hdc around.

Start decreasing-

Round 18: Ch 2, *hdc in next 8 sts, hdc2tog* repeat *to* around. 72 sts

Round 19:  Repeat Round 12. 72 sts

Round 20: Ch 2, *hdc in next 7 sts, hdc2tog* repeat *to* around. 64 sts

Round 21: Repeat Round 12. 64 sts

Round 22: Ch 2, *hdc in next 6 sts, hdc2tog* repeat *to* around. 56 sts

Round 23: Ch 2, x stitch around. 56 sts

Round 24: Ch 2, *hdc in next 5 sts, hdc2tog* repeat *to* around. 48 sts

Round 25: Ch 2, *hdc in next 4 sts, hdc2tog* repeat *to* around. 40 sts

I worked in a lil medallion here, and am just writing from memory soo I hope this works out right! If nothing else do whatever you want to close up your hat.

Round 26: Ch 3, dc in first st, *ch 1, skip 1 st, dc2tog, ch 1, skip 1 st, dc in next st*repeat *to* around.

Round 27: Ch 3, *big puff stitch in ch 1 space, ch 1* repeat *to* around.

Round 28: Ch 3, *small puff stitch in ch 1 space, ch 1* repeat *to* around.

Round 29: Ch 1, sc in each st around.

Cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing. To close up, thread tail onto needle and insert needle into front loop of first stitch and into front loop of every stitch. Pull yarn tight to close up and then finish off.

Lacy Rib Coffee Sleeve

I keep seeing cute lil coffee sleeves all over Ravelry-and have been wanting to make some of my own. I figured it would be a good way to practice some Tunisian as well! 🙂 I think it’s a great reusable project, and a cute way to dress up your coffee! ❤

Repeat this pattern until piece measures almost around your mug/thermos/cup. You want it to be a lil bit short-almost 1/2 an inch.

Next row: Bind off in knit st. Don’t break yarn!

Ch 10, sl st to opposite end, turn and sl st back across chain thru the back loops. Finish off.

Sew on a button opposite the chain and you’re done!

I added a lil flower to it as well 🙂 dress it up as you see fit! You’ll now have a stylish reusable sleeve!!
