Quick corkscrew scarf

I crocheted this scarf in no time. The main part is half double crochet with a Q hook the to give it the corkscrew effect I did the last two rows in single crochet with smaller hooks.

Tunisian Crochet Wall Hanging

 

 

 

This is a wall hanging I made in a basic Tunisian crochet stitch.  I made it from an Italian wool and stained the wood to go with the tones on the yarn.  I also added hanging brackets to the back of the top so it could be easily hung on the wall.  I might have to do more of these!

Striped scarf

This is a jumble of nylon, silk, cotton, merino wool, and microfiber. It turned very bumpy but soft from the sublime merino wool. See photos for yarns used. I also used a bamboo 8mm hook and the stitches are all half double crochet.

Baby blanket

I made this baby blanket for a colleague’s baby shower. I used Bernat softee and a G hook. I added a simple dc ruffle edge and made it as a giant granny square.

Lana bambu purples scarf

I used this wonderful Lana bambu yarn to make this scarf. The stitch is a half double crochet through the back loop which makes little ridges and gives the fabric a wonderful texture.

Poncho

I made this for a colleague’s daughter and she loves it! I used two skeins of Yarn Bee Surprise Yummy white. I used two different hooks and a basic poncho starter pattern diagram I found online. I did a simple double crochet stitch border and for the collar I did a simple single crochet stitch for about 6 rows. Then I added a pompon to complete it.
