  1. I'm not a very experienced knitter but I do enjoy making one or two skein garter stitch scarves for gifting. Last weekend at a church sale I bought three skeins of a Red Heart yarn called Boutique Magical. The colors were pretty and I liked the way it had different textures to it. Gracious, what a hoot it turned out to be. There were at least four or five separate weights/textures in each skein as well as fairly long color bands. I'm glad I decided to knit with it because I think crocheting would have made me tear out a few handfuls of hair.....lol. Has anyone used this yarn? Do you have suggestions for patterns, either crochet or knitting?
  2. This half-finger gloves pattern can be made with or without the separate fingers. The body is made with a modified half-double crochet stitch – it looks a lot like the knit garter stitch. It’s a firm, textured stitch but still has some stretch to it. While not overly difficult, the modified half-double crochet may take a bit to become comfortable to work. I recommend taking the time to stitch a gauge swatch both to check your tension against what is listed in the pattern as well as to practice the stitch. Once you develop a rhythm to creating this stitch, your gloves will be completed quickly! In addition to the modified half-double crochet, this pattern uses the foundation double-crochet stitch. Instructions on how to do this are in the pattern as well as a link to a video tutorial. Other stitches used are slip stitches, single crochet and post double crochet stitches with minimal shaping. My pattern testers reported it took 3-5 hours per glove (with the half-fingers). Don't be afraid to try this pattern; recent feedback from a customer: Awesome pattern, easy to follow. And that's saying a lot since I hardly know how to crochet! Very cute! Pattern available for immediate download at: My Etsy Shop My Craftsy Pattern Store On Ravelry
