Nettie’s Super Simple Stitch in Rows Video Tutorial

Stitchopedia - Nettie's Super Simple Stitch in Rows from Jessie At Home

The Nettie’s Super Simple series of patterns all use the same st, sometimes worked in the round, and sometimes worked in rows. This stitch is, as advertised, super simple! It is a stitch pattern that has been used probably since the first hook met hand. This video will show you how to make this stitch pattern in rows, so even a brand new crocheter can create these patterns!! If you are just learning to crochet, and need to know how to make your starting slip knot, a chain stitch, and a slip stitch (which are all the stitches you need), then check out the Learn To Crochet section here.

Red Heart and Red Cross – Give back!!

Did you know that according to the Craft Yarn Council, 6 out of every 10 knitters and crocheters crafted a project for charity in 2014? If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know how much I love and encourage crafting for charities.

Pick-Up Mobius Ear Warmers

Pick-Up Mobius Ear Warmers - free knit pattern by Jessie At Home

Pick-Up Mobius Ear Warmers
Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This pattern was so much fun to create. I’ve always been fascinated by mobius strips, and I prefer ear warmers that come in at the top, so mixing the two seemed only natural to me. This pattern is first worked in rows, then the long strip is joined into a mobius, and then it’s finished off in rounds. This pattern can be used to create ear warmers with nearly any weight yarn. I hope you enjoy creating these ear warmers as much as I did!
