Howdy everyone - I am on Ravelry and Crochetville have been posted my patterns and projects there and on my blog...decided to share the ones I have designed with all of you here! Here's my own design of a star-stitch scarf - very simple and easy to make! http://janetmariespage.blogspot.com/#!/2011/10/free-crochet-pattern-how-to-make-star.html STS = star-stitch; pull up 6 on hook, pull thru, ch1 (see Crochet By Teresa's on how to make the stitch - there are more tutorials out there on this cool stitch - but I like Teresa's the best) I used a standard Red Heart multi-colored yarn for this scarf (If you want looser stars, use a larger hook) With size K Hook, CH24 (use multiples of 6 for the desired width) ROW 1 = make 7 STS ; HDC in last; CH2 turn ROW 2 = 2 HDC in center CH of STS across (should be 7 sets of HDC); HDC in last; CH3 turn; REPEAT ROW 1, then ROW 2 till desired length for TRIM - I used a light blue that was almost lavendar, did SC all around, twice, then added FRINGE (model in 3rd pic is my son's friend, Monica)
Here's my latest "easy" crochet scarf design using simple cables and the star-stitch. http://janetmariespage.blogspot.com/#!/2011/10/free-crochet-pattern-how-to-make-cables.html (For this scarf, I used Misti Baby Alpaca Yarn, 10 ply) If you want a wider scarf, use multiples of 6 STS = Star Stitch (for first row of STS, pull up 6 loops, pull through all 6; then pull up loop in 1st stitch (the center of the STS, then on the next, which is the last of the STS you just made, you should have 3 loops on your hook, then pull up next 3 = 6, then pull through all 6 - if you don't understand, go to Janet's You Tube - from there, I have saved the demo from Crochet By Teresa - she has a hands on demo that's easy to follow - you can also go to my Ravelry Site, and search for free patterns on how to do this wonderful star stitch) ________________________________________ With size K hook, CH20 (should be 4-inches wide - use size J hook if needed to make gauge) ROW 1 - HDC in 4th CH from hook; HDC across; CH2, turn ROW 2-12 - FPDC around next HDC; BPDC around next; repeat across; HDC in last; CH2 turn ROW 13 - HDC across; CH3 turn ROW 14 - begin STS (pull up 6 on loop; YO; pull through; continue across (will have 7 STS per row); HDC in last; CH2 turn ROW 15 - 2HDC in center of each STS; HDC in last stitch (7 sets of 2HDC); CH3 turn repeat ROW 14-15 till desired length but leave 1/2 of last skein left; then do 1 row of HDC; then 12 rows of the simple cable; bind off This is a great alternative to the standard fringe trim.
I designed these very simple baby mittens for a friend's upcoming shower. Got lots of "oooohs" and "aaaahhhhs" - very fast when you need something quick. http://janetmariespage.blogspot.com/view/sidebar#!/2011/10/free-crochet-pattern-how-to-make.html I wanted to design something simple and easy. This looks so precious and you can make these up very fast. The mitten should be around 1.5 to 2 inches wide and 3.5 to 4 inches long (counting cuff) - the baby yarn I used is very soft and flexible - if you want tighter, just use a size F hook - if you are using a stiffer yarn, stick with G and increase the rows or try H ________________________________________ with size G hook, CH32 ROW 1 - HDC in 3rd CH from hook; HDC across; CH2, turn ROW 2-7 HDC in next HDC (back loops only); repeat across; CH2; turn on ROW 7, don’t CH2, instead, fold the mitten in half; with yarn still on your hook, sew up the side; tie off. on other side, starting from the top of mitten, sew down the side - TURN INSIDE OUT; now you can trim around the cuff any way you like - I made 2 sets of DC all around, then tie off. For a girl, you can use a shell or other border. Weave satin ribbon through bottom near the cuff - tie in a bow - you’re done!
