Star Motif Pattern

You can use this pattern for so many different things.  You can connect them to make a scarf by single crocheting along the edging, or you can use the join-as-you-go method to create an afghan!  I was looking for a star motif pattern and just could not find anything that I liked, so I did it myself.

Materials:

  • 2  colors worsted weight yarn
  • Size I Crochet hook.

Gauge:  Not critical, but you can increase or decrease the hook size if you want a larger or smaller star.  This one measures about 7 inches from the tip of the left arm to the tip of the right arm.

Round 1: With first color,  ch 5, join with sl st in first ch to form a loop,  ch 1, 25 sc in loop, join with sl st to first sc.

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in same st, hdc in next sc, [dc, ch1, dc] in next sc, hdc in next sc, sc in next sc, * sc in next sc, hdc in next sc, [dc, ch 1, dc] in next sc, hdc in next sc, sc in next sc, repeat from* three times more, join with sl st to first sc, finish off.

Round 3: Join next color with sc in first hdc of any section, hdc in next st, [2dc, ch2, 2 dc] in ch 1 sp, hdc in next st, sc in next st, skip next 2 sc, * sc in next st, hdc in next st [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in ch 1 sp, hdc in next st, sc in next st, skip next 2 sc, repeat from * 3 times more, join with sl st to first sc.

Round 4: Sl st in next st, ch1, sc in same st, hdc in each of next 2 sts, [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in next ch 2 sp, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in next st, skip next 2 sts, * sc in next st, hdc in each of  next 2 sts [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in next ch 2 sp, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in next sc, skip next 2 sts, repeat from * 3 times more, finish off.

Round 5: Join next color with sc in second st of any section, hdc in each of next 3 sts, [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in next ch 2 sp, hdc in each of next 3 sts,  sc in next st, skip next 2 sts, *sc in next st, hdc in each of next 3 sts, [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in next ch 2 sp, hdc in each of next 3 sts, sc in next st, skip next 2 sts, repeat from * 3 times more, join with sl st to first sc.

Round 6: Sl st in next st, ch 2, dc in each of next 4 sts, [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in next ch 2 sp, dc in each of next 4 sts, hdc in next st, skip next 2 sts, *hdc in next st, dc in next 4 sts, [2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc] in next ch 2 sp, dc in each of next 4 sts, hdc in next st, skip next 2 sts, repeat from * 3 times more, join with sl st to first ch 2, finish off.

Pocketed Scarf

This, ladies and gentlemen, is my Mom!   I had made several scarves before Christmas thinking I would give them as Christmas presents.  But then I had another idea for presents.  So I “scrapped” the scarf idea and put the ones I had already made aside for the time being.

My Mom then recently mentioned that scarves were so “in” this year, and I asked her if she wanted one.  So I took the three I had made over to her and let her pick the one she wanted.

I have an MP (mass-produced) scarf that has pockets in it and I just love it.  I can put my hat and gloves in the pockets when not in use and they don’t get lost!  So I decided to make some of my own.  The pockets are very easy to do.  They’re just slip stitch joined with the right-sides facing at both ends and then turned right-side out.

I also decided to do cable stitches to make it even more interesting.  This is a very simple four-stitch cable where the cables wrap around each other in pairs.  If anyone would like the pattern let me know and I’ll be glad to post it.

Sorry for the slight blur of the detail pic.  I thought I’d gotten a clear shot.

Thanks to Mom for agreeing to appear on the site.  Hope you enjoy!

Bubble Gum Hat & Scarf

This is my Niece, Kaeli, and the first of the Christmas presents that I will post for this year.  I had this yarn that I had started a knitting project with but never finished.  I had wanted to learn how to knit and picked up a book and taught myself the basics.  But I just don’t enjoy it as much as crocheting so I’ve all but given it up. 

So instead I decided to use the rest of the yarn for this set.  The yarn is bulky and fun.  The colors make me think of bubble gum and just seemed perfect for a little girl.  It is hard to work with though as you can’t really see your own stitches in the last row or round, and I had to crochet it mostly by feel of where the loops were.  The Scarf was a little easier than the hat as I just used a single crochet and chain one stitch.  That way I could single crochet each row in the spaces from the previous row, making it much easier to feel where to insert the hook. 

I had to modify the pattern for the hat slightly so it wouldn’t be too big for a little girl’s head, and I was so worried that it wouldn’t fit.  But it seemed to work nicely. 

Stitched in Love,

Super-Long Scarf

My boss is moving to our office in Rockland, Maine.  So I made him this scarf to keep warm.  He had mentioned that he used to have this really long scarf that was very thick.  He said that he could fold it in half, wrap it around his neck and thread the loose ends though the folded end.  So I made him one that he could do just so with.

This monster is 58 inches long, folded in half

It is made with a bulky yarn by holding two strands at once to make it extra thick and warm.  But to keep it flexible, I used single crochet and chain 1 stitches.  The ends are made in single crochet stitches with a two stitch increase (at the beginning) or decrease (at the end) for 4 rows.

That ought to keep him warm!

Stitched in Love,

Tatha
