Sew the soil to the inside of the pot most of the way around – fill gently with polyester fill so that soil does not rise higher than edge of pot, then sew closed.

Learn To Crochet With Spotlight – Easy Knitting + Crochet Projects

INSTRUCTIONS

To begin, grasp your crochet hook between the thumb and middle finger of your dominant hand. Rest your index finger near the tip of the hook. There are two common ways to hold the hook, the knife grip or pencil grip. Either is correct so choose the one that is most
comfortable for you.

Figs 1,2
Pencil Grip Knife Grip You begin crochet by making a slip knot on the hook, several inches from the yarn end. Tighten the knot so it is secure, but not too tight.

Fig 3
Hold the working yarn in your other hand in any manner that is comfortable. Most crocheters guide the
yarn with their index finger and thumb and maintain even tension by wrapping the yarn around their little finger.

Fig 4
CHAIN STITCH (abbreviation: ch)

Almost all pieces of crochet start with a lengthof chain stitches, which resembles a series of Vs. This is called the foundation chain. Hold the slip knot between your thumb and middle finger. Bring the yarn over the hook and draw yarn through loop on hook. One chain stitch made and one loop remains on hook. It is important to always bring the yarn over the top of the hook from back to front catching the yarn in the throat of the hook. Turn the hook slightly toward you to help prevent the yarn from slipping off. Fig 5 Continue to make chain stitches moving your middle finger and thumb up the chain as you work to keep your fingers close to the hook. Practice until you develop a rhythm and your
tension and stitch appearance are even.

Note: When counting the number of stitches in the foundation chain, do NOT include the loop on the hook.

Fig 6
Now you are ready to learn three basic crochet stitches: double crochet, half-treble crochet, and treble crochet. Each will be taller than the last. This variation in height is the result of the number of times you wrap the yarn around the hook as you work. As you learn each stitch make sure you practice until your stitches are even and not too tight.

DOUBLE CROCHET (abbreviation: dc)
Double crochet is the shortest of the basic stitches. It is dense and makes a good firm fabric when little open work is desired. To begin, make a foundation chain of 13 stitches (do not work too tightly). Insert the hook in the second chain from hook (under the back loop).

Fig 7
Yarn over hook and draw a loop through. There are now two loops on your hook. Yarn over hook again and draw the loop through both loops on the hook.

Fig 8
One double crochet made and one loop remains on hook. Work a double crochet in each following chain across the row. Make sure your foundation chain is kept flat with Vs facing you. Since you skipped the first chain, you will have 12 double crochet stitches in the row.

Fig 9
At the end of the row, chain one. This is called the turning chain and is made in order to give the necessary height to begin next row. Turn your work around until the opposite side is facing you. Fig 10
Work one double crochet in the first stitch of the previous row under the top 2 loops.

Fig 11
Work a double crochet in each stitch across row. Be sure to work the last double crochet under top two loops of last stitch.

Fig 12
Repeat rows of double crochet until you have mastered the technique and can work with ease. To fasten off at end of work: Make a chain stitch, then cut the yarn, leaving 10cm end. Pull end up tightly through the loop on hook.

HALF-TREBLE CROCHET (abbreviation: htr)
Half-treble crochet is taller than double crochet, but shorter than a treble crochet. It is a simple stitch to master. To begin, make a foundation chain of 13 stitches. Yarn over hook, insert hook in 3rd chain from hook (under back loop). Yarn over hook and draw loop through. There are now 3 loops on hook.

Fig 13
Yarn over hook again and draw loop through all 3 loops on hook. One half-treble crochet made and one loop remains on hook.

Fig 14
Work a half-treble crochet in each chain across. The two chains you skipped at the beginning of the row count as one half-treble crochet, so you will have a total of 12 stitches in the row (11 stitches plus the chains at the beginning of the row).

Fig 15
After working the last half-treble crochet of the row, chain 2 for the turning chain. This counts as the first half-treble crochet of the next row and gives proper height to continue the row.

Fig 16
Turn the work until the opposite side is facing you. Work a half-treble crochet in the second stitch of the previous row (under top 2 loops).

Fig 17
Work a half-treble crochet in each remaining stitch across the row. End by working a half-treble crochet in the top of turning chain. (remember that the turning chain counts as one stitch).

Fig 18
Repeat the previous row as many times as desired. Count your stitches frequently to make sure you maintain 12 stitches per row. Fasten off and cut the work when you feel comfortable making rows of half-treble crochet.

TREBLE CROCHET (abbreviation: tr)
Treble crochet is one of the most popular stitches because the stitches are tall so it works up quickly and the resulting piece is firm enough to form a sturdy fabric. To begin, make a foundation chain of 14 stitches. Yarn over hook, insert hook in 4th chain from hook (under back loop). Yarn over hook and draw loop through stitch. There are now 3 loops on hook.

Fig 19
Yarn over hook and draw loop through first 2 loops on hook. There are now 2 loops on hook.

Fig 20
Yarn over again and draw loop through both loops on hook.

Fig 21
One treble crochet made and one loop remains on hook. Work one treble crochet in each remaining chain across. The three chains you skipped at the beginning of the row count as one treble crochet, so you will have a total of 12 stitches in the row (11 stitches plus the chains at the beginning of the row).

Fig 22
After the last treble crochet of the row, chain 3 for the turning chain. This counts as the first treble crochet of next row and gives proper row height.

Fig 23
Turn your work until the opposite side is facing you. Work one treble crochet in 2nd stitch of previous row (under top 2 loops).

Fig 24
Work treble crochet in each remaining stitch across row, ending by working last treble crochet in top chain of the turning chain (remember that the turning chain counts
as one stitch).

Fig 25
Repeat the previous row as many times as desired. Fasten off and cut yarn as before.

Congratulations you can crochet!

Our Top Beginner Friendly Knit & Crochet Patterns

Where To Start: The Best Patterns For Beginner Knitters & Crocheters

Just because you might not have the most advanced skills in knitting and crocheting, definitely does not mean that you can’t create beautiful knit or crochet items! Everyone has to start somewhere when learning how to knit or crochet, and that’s why I have many patterns offered that I specifically designed for beginners in mind. Specifically, designs that I think would make lovely holiday gifts. The patterns discussed in this blog post are all beginner-friendly and require only simple stitches and techniques that are super easy to follow. If you’ve never picked up knitting needles before, and would love a resources page of where to start, you can visit my “Learn” page, which is loaded with tutorial photos, detailed descriptions, videos, and more!

The Nora Scarf Knitting Pattern: Beginner Friendly & Stunning!

Of all the knit and crochet beginner friendly patterns offered at Darling Jadore, I personally think The Nora Scarf has quite the impact. Paired with variegated yarn and classic stitches only, the finished scarf looks far from “handmade”. This scarf is a super simple knit, works up in no time, and once you get in the rhythmic flow of the stitches, it is the most relaxing, meditative knitting pattern ever. Even when I’m busy designing complex patterns during the day, I usually have a Nora Scarf on my needles because it’s the perfect, soothing knitting project to wind down with or grab and go on a road trip with. Friends and family will definitely be in awe that you knit this by yourself if you’re a beginner. 

If you’ve never picked up knitting needles before, you can learn how to Cast On here, and then learn how to knit here and purl here (which are the only two stitches required by this pattern. Lastly, you can learn how to Bind Off your scarf here. And literally, that’s it! The finished Nora Scarf would make the perfect holiday gift for someone special, and they’ll be really surprised you made it yourself…handmade gifts are always the best, aren’t they!

The Chateaux Throw Crochet Pattern: The Coziest Beginner-Friendly Pattern

Looking for a home decor item that you can crochet but that’s super beginner-friendly? Then The Chateaux Throw crochet pattern is definitely for you! If you’re new to crocheting and want a pattern to practice your skills but that involves only simple stitches and techniques (seriously, this pattern only involves one stitch), then you’ll find this crochet pattern relaxing and fun. I think a cozy, wool throw blanket makes for the perfect holiday gift to give to a friend or loved one, and because this blanket requires super-bulky (category 6) yarn, it works up at lightening speed. You’ll be surprised by how warm and cozy the finished throw is, and also by how lovely it looks in almost any decor space. The Chateaux Throw is a timeless decor piece that can be shared and loved for generations.

The Haze Scarf Crochet Pattern: Light, Breezy & Super Easy!

One of our fan-favorite patterns this summer has been The Haze Scarf, an airy, lightweight super easy scarf that can be worn a variety of ways: a neckerchief, bandana, wrapped in your hair, tied onto a purse, etc. This super simple crochet pattern allows you to crochet a classic triangle-shaped scarf with two tapered ends and only basic crochet stitches. Even though the pattern calls for super-fine weight yarn, it works up so quickly because of how small the finished scarf is.

Antique Crochet Spotlight | Interweave

I geek out over antique crochet. I’ve been known to go into an antique shop and stare at a doily for what my husband describes as “longer than the person spent making it.” So when I go visit my husband’s aunt Betty at her ranch in Wyoming, I get a little lost. She collects antiques, and every room in her home has antique crochet in it. While the boys go play with the tractors, I go stare at bedspreads. The last time I went, I grabbed the camera, thinking you guys would appreciate a photo montage of some of the really neat pieces she has in her house. I hope you like pictures!
She also collects dolls, and every one of them has a cute crocheted outfit!
I kind of want this outfit for myself.
For every towel, there is a filet crochet edging.
And the crochet-edged towels are everywhere.
This wee crochet dress was missing its doll, so it became an ornament.
A truly amazing filet crochet piece with a lion and shield motif.
Oh the doilies. So many doilies!
Cute wee doilies!
And doilies that were more like tablecloths.
This kerchief won me over instantly.
And then there was the crochet thread bedspread.
Someday, I’m going to make one of these…
You know…with all that spare time I have.
My relatives were somewhat amused by my obsession with getting pictures of all of these pieces for you, but they’ve known me long enough to expect this sort of thing from time to time. I hope you like the pictures! If you’re as bonkers about crochet lace as I am, check out our Five Free Crochet Lace Patterns eBook here on Crochet Me. It includes my crochet bracelet pattern that was inspired by antique crochet lace pieces like the ones above. Enjoy!

Until next time,

Patterns – Fandom Knitting & Crochet

The spotlight is on the Women of Disney (at least a few of them)! Get knitting and crochet patterns, yarns inspired by the characters, and some awesome fandom gear.

Women of Disney-Inspired Knitting and Crochet Patterns, Yarn, and Fandom Gear

Welcome to the second-ever Fandom Spotlight here at Fandom Knitting & Crochet!  The first one, our Harry Potter Fandom Spotlight, was so much fun to put together, and I got such wonderful feedback I decided to continue the series.  So, today, I bring you the Women of Disney.

So, why not Disney Princesses?  Well, I thought about that, and some of them aren’t really princesses.  So, I got to thinking, how about Disney Royals?  Well, that didn’t give the right “girl power” vibe, so I went with Women of Disney.

What you’ll find here is a collection of hand-picked knitting patterns, crochet patterns, yarn, and fandom gear that I personally love and find oh-so-fitting for celebrating the Women of Disney in the proper crafty fandom fashion.  While there are some “literal” interpretations of the characters these patterns and yarns inspire, I (as always) have also included a nice sampling of more loosely-related selections. 🙂

I hope you enjoy!

Royalty-worthy Yarn: Yarns Fit for a Princess

If you are looking for some perfectly princess-worthy yarn to create one of the projects above (or one of your own), I suggest using a yarn that comes in a variety of Women of Disney-type colors.

My recommendation for a general yarn is Swish DK from Knit Picks.  It is superwash, squishy, lovely, and affordable.  The best part is all of the colors! I have curated some of them in Disney-inspired combos in the photo above.  Here are the exact colors I pulled together:

  • For Elsa: Wonderland Heather
  • For Rapunzel: Sugar Plum & Carnation
  • For Merida: Rainforest Heather
  • For Snow: Dusk, Serrano, and Honey
  • For Tiana: Green Tea Heather
  • For Belle: Honey
  • For Anna: Bordeaux, Blak & Dusk

You can get all of these colors from Knit Picks right here.

So, if you’re like me, you want to show off your fandom.  It’s not just picking fandom-related projects to knit and crochet and carefully selecting yarn.  Sometimes it’s also about finding a cute fandom item that just brings a smile to your face.  So, if you’re looking for some Women of Disney fandom gear, here are my picks:

  • Mrs. Potts Ceramic Teapot available here.
  • Women’s Princess T-Shirt available here.

10 Cozy Fall (Free) Knitting Patterns · Craftwhack

Knitting is a strange thing. I taught myself to knit maybe 5-6 years ago with round looms and made some atrocious hats. This gave me the nerve to try my hand at using needles, and I made a bunch of semi-okay hats. Hats are my favorite things to knit, but I’ve only knit 1 baby hat in the last 3 years. I still have a giant drawer full of yarn, and I can feel the itch to knit some more hats coming on strong.

In fact, I owe Christian another hat like this one that’s slightly bigger for his giant noggin. This is an awesome pattern, and was a blast to knit. A veritable hoot, in fact.

Do you knit? Do you want to learn to knit? I taught myself by watching videos. We’re so lucky to have this resource to learn new crafty techniques, don’t you think? Bluprint has some super-awesome knitting videos. I want to take this one, simply because I want to make this hat.

Anyway, why don’t you just go ahead and check out these knitting projects, and get all excited about fall and knitting and sipping brandy by the fire and all the Halloween candy that’s coming your way.

This little bunny and bear patterns are free, PLUS you get patterns to make them tiny clothes. This is the only size sweater I would ever attempt to knit.

Effortless Beanie (orange beanie)

Aise Wrap (light grey shawl)

Ten Stitch Blanket

Epipa Baby Booties (English versions of patterns toward bottom)

Knitted floor mat  – I really, absolutely want to knit this big.

Lemon Twist hat – this is so cute!

Mittens (do you like saying this this word as much as I do?)

Now that next week around here is going to be in the nineties every day, I may put off my dreams of knitting for a little while and still grasp onto the end of summer with every fiber of my desperate being. I love you, hot weather.

Olga P.

– Once in my childhood my grandmother tried to teach me how to crochet, but that was a long time ago and there was no ardent desire.And now I wanted to knit, but my grandmother is gone … It’s good that there is an opportunity to take courses. I was very lucky both with the teacher and with the choice of the training center. Thank you, I will definitely continue my studies!

Simple crochet patterns – patterns, patterns, description

It is worth learning just a few basic knitting techniques and simple crochet patterns can be considered mastered.They are obtained by alternating different elements, depending on the pattern. But, despite their simplicity, they are quite presentable. Things made from them are uncomplicated, but unique.

How to crochet simple patterns

If you know how to make a chain of air loops, single crochet and crochet columns, then you can easily crochet any pattern from this section of the trend-city.ru site, and download the photo from our catalog for free.

We offer a description of one of them.

  • First, cast on 32 loops;
  • Turn them over, placing them on the index finger of the left hand. We make a double crochet in the fifth loop, then we knit the same to the end of the chain. They should be 28 plus 1 due to the lifting loops;
  • * Turn the canvas, weave four loops. Now we make a double crochet from the third in the previous row. * Further air, column through one at the base *. We repeat from * to * to the end of the row;
  • The third row is performed with double crochets.*

For the sample, it is best to repeat from * to * five times.

All patterns for beginners have a similar design principle. They differ only in the number of loops and columns that alternate.

In order to diversify the ornament, columns are introduced without crochets, with two or three crochets. It is fundamentally important in which loop of the previous row the tool is threaded. The patterns of knitting depend on this, the photographs of which are offered by us.

When making the fabric, you need to adhere to the same number of elements throughout the entire knitting process.Some products are knitted from the center. In this case, the number of elements increases from the middle to the edge.

Which yarn to use

It is possible to make products in this technique from a wide variety of yarns. These can be thick or thin threads, well twisted and with a smooth texture. If necessary, work with a thread in two or more folds.

A product made of homemade yarn looks original, although it is more often knitted from factory yarn.It has a uniform texture, the quality of the thread is the same in length.

Yarn data, tool number suitable for it are written on the label. Having such information, and a photo that can be printed for free from us, and novice knitters will correctly make the necessary calculations.

Suitable for which products

We can safely say that any simple crochet pattern is suitable for the main part of the product and for decoration, diagrams and descriptions are also presented on the site.

The following models can be crocheted with simple crochet patterns:

  • On hats, berets, scarves, snares, stoles and shawls, and if you decorate with lace to top it off, it will come out great;
  • Blouses, jumpers, sweaters, ponchos, vests, jackets and more will be peculiar. Knitted of wool, they will be able to warm and decorate a girl, a girl, a woman and males;
  • Interesting dresses, sundresses, skirts with basic drawings, we presented photos of very original and unusual;
  • Only a simple pattern is suitable for a swimsuit, shorts or trousers, the part that is worn on the hips;
  • This technique is also used for socks, shoes (sneakers, sandals for babies), mittens, mitts.Made in this way, and then decorated, they will be both warm and inimitable.

How to use the website catalog

We have tried to make our catalog understandable for all guests. On each of its pages there are several samples, and by clicking on the one you like to view it enlarged, familiarize yourself with the diagram.
