    Valentines

    Here is the pattern for the woven heart in the upper left corner. Sorry I cant tell you designed it, just copied it from the web. It was a free pattern so I don't think she will mind it I put it on the Ville. Charlotte Make 2, contrasting colors looks best I think. Fold them each in half so the half circles at the top and bottom meet. When you weave them together, you won't be using an over/under weave, but instead, it's around and through. One side will sandwich the other side, then you pass the folded strip through the next strip, then sandwich the strip from the other side again. So the first and second set of strips alternate like this pretty bad illustration. If this doesn't make it clear enough, check out the paper instructions I linked to at the start of this. Alternate that way,since my pattern is only 3 strips, the final row is just a repeat of how you wove the first one. You can either stitch the top closed to use it for a scrubbie or tawashi, or you can make another strip and sew it on with decorative buttons to make a basket. I haven't decided what I'm doing with mine yet. The woven parts are 4 layers of crochet, and the half circles on the top are 2 layers of crochet, so it would also make a serviceable trivet made in a non-synthetic yarn that's reasonably heat resistant. The pattern for mine: Using a size H hook and Peaches & Creme cotton. Strips: Make 3 each in 2 different colors Chain 5, chain doesn't count as first single crochet here or throughout. Row 1: Single crochet in second crochet from hook, crochet across. 4 stitches Row 2-31: ch 1 to turn, single crochet across. Pull yarn through last loop on hook, and break off. Single crochet across the top and bottom of each set of strips. (12 stitches). Pull yarn through last loop on hook, and break off. Half circles: Make 2 each in both colors. Magic ring or chain 2. Round 1: 3 single crochet in first chain or magic ring. (3 sts) Round 2: ch 1 to turn, 2 sc in each stitch (6 sts) Round 3: ch 1 to turn, 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in last st (9 sts) Round 4: ch 1 to turn, 2 sc in first st, sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts (12 sts) Round 5: ch 1 to turn, 2 sc in first st, sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts (15 sts) Round 6: ch 1 to turn, 2 sc in first st, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 4 sts (18 sts) Pull yarn through last loop on hook, and break off leaving a tail to stitch the half circle to the strips. Stitch the half circles to the top and bottom of each set of strips. Weave as explained above. Make a hanger or stitch half circles together to make a scrubbie.
