On the Hook

Image

This has been a week to finish up some scarves The first being the Red Heart Swerve Yarn scarf. (Pictured above) This particular scarf was crocheted by hand (with out a hook) using my fingers and literally was finished in four minutes and twenty five seconds. This would be a great pattern to use for any last minutes gifts.

You unwind the yarn, fold in half and then precede to draw through loops around the size of the palm of your hand. It was that simple. I believe this would be a great pattern to induce young crocheting to the art. It is quick, requires no hook and produces a scarf when you are done. I could see my self using this to help get the younger generation started on their own journey in crocheting.

The second scarf was from Red Heart Sassy Fabric collection. Technically, it was not yarn -it was fabric, but it was crocheted. I will be writing more on this later, as I plan on doing a tutorial on this scarf later this month and will talk more of it at that time.

Other projects I am working on for this month is the Annie’s Hook & Needle club project. This is the “Elegant Table Runner”. I am over half way done with it and should post the review on it next Monday. When I am finished with this I will start the Waffle pillow pattern and post the Crochet Along.

The last project is the shawl I am crocheting to wear for Easter. It is crocheted in flower motifs that are then connected into strips and then crocheted together to create the shawl. I am excited about the project and am anxious to see the end results.

As you can see I have a lot of crocheting to keep me busy the next few weeks. Would love to hear about some of your projects.

Until next week, keep those hooks flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
