Patterns of the Week
Desperately Seeking Shallow SC Crescent
by Min G.

A top-down, center-out, shallow crescent shawl with a wide lace border. No long starting chain! The wings are long enough to throw over your shoulder and stay put, or fasten behind your back.
Regular or extra shallow size. The extra shallow size is designed to wear cowboy style.
Block it hard for a lacy look, or block it softly for a warmer, stretchier wrap.
The body is all single crochet. Single crochet in the front loop yields a thin, drapey but solid fabric.
Join our CAL starting Sept. 1, 2014 in the  Crochet Shoulder Wrappers group! 


Cabled iPad Sleeve

A cabled, buttoned slipcase for the iPad. It is worked from the bottom-up using Judy's Magic Cast On, and features alternating cables. The flap is reinforced with single crochet, and a knitting alternative is provided.
Uses worsted yarn but can be adjusted for Nooks, Kindles and Mini iPads.pocket
Front pocket can be added as well as lining for extra support.

 



Lotus Hat
This is a really beautiful hat that is fun and easy to make. Chart instructions are included.  The Lotus Hat can be knit for a newborn all the way up to adult size. The decreases for the crown produced unexpectedly delightful results. The hat is based on a crosshatch lace stitch pattern "I call it "Lotus Hat" because the decrease at the crown forms a lotus-like pattern, while the lace on the body looks rather like stems and leaves. I made it beanie-style, designed to only cover the tips of the ears, but have included instructions for lengthening it."

Free Patterns of the Week
Nancy's Waves Scarf



This pattern is so simple that once you get the hang of it, it becomes tv crochet! Such a range of colors would look great in this scarf. Use your favorite hook size and pick a yarn that suits it! Light yet beautiful project. Quick and very portable crochet! Not too heavy for summer crocheting.




Laughingbird
 


"This scarf pattern was inspired by watching swirling water in the wake of a boat that was ferrying my family to Laughingbird Caye, a small island park off the coast of Belize. The Carribbean was a remarkable light, fresh blue, and I was very happy to find this colorway of tosh sock to help me realize this pattern. Blocking really opens up this pattern and emphasizes the wavy edges."



 
Business Casual
  "My dad is the best and he deserves custom designed socks for Christmas. I've done it once before, and I think that this may become a new Christmas tradition! This year I decided that dad needed a pair of cool, preppy socks. So I designed these faux-argyle cabled socks. You get the fun diamond shapes of argyle, but without all that tricky stranded knitting and with the added bonus of lots of cool texture! - Tanis

Kind of Lacy

"I was playing around with different types of lace and came up with this pattern. Hence the name: "Kind of lacy"
I think you can use any weight of yarn from cobweb to at least sportweight and get equally pretty results. The important thing is that the yarn and needles you choose makes pretty stitches together."

Sunflower Barefoot Sandal
Barefoot Sandal is best accessory for your feet in Summer days. All you need is a little bit of yarn and a couple of hours!

Patterns of the Week
Lacy Zig Zag Shawl

This is a perfect pattern that can be turned into a scarf or a stole by the amount of stitches that are cast on. So many different types of yarns looks beautiful in this, such as self striping, long variegated to solid hues. Knit it on big needles or small to get your desired gauge.


Anastasia Socks

Absolutely perfect for those variegates sock yarns that are hard to pick patterns for, but you love. The design doesn't get lost in the yarn . The more variegated the better. 340 yards for mid-calf. Self-striping yarn is an alternative to the variegated. It's simply stunning. For project pictures make sure to click the pattern link.


Botanical Cowl

"Named after the tide pools at Botanical Beach.This cowl uses an airy double-eyelet pattern that gives it plenty of drape and visual depth, and is edged by 4/4 ribbing. Instructions are written for either a single or double loop size. The double loop size also works nicely folded flat and worn with a pin as a neck warmer."
"What's on Our Needles?"
