Round-Up-Chains

When you learn to crochet, the first thing you learn is how to make a chain. Miles and miles of chain. What can you do with a chain? Well, as it turns out, a lot! Here is a collection of patterns made mostly of chain stitches. As a matter of fact, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 9 are made entirely with chain stitches, making them great projects for a beginner who wants to complete a project after learning the chain stitch. Of course, these are all great patterns for any level crocheter. Sometimes simple is just plain beautiful!

If you do not yet know how to crochet, well, here is a tutorial on how to make the chain stitch! It includes written instructions, lots of photos, and even a video.

Stitchopedia-Getting-Started-Slip-Knot-and-Chain-Stitch

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Loopy Love Blanket: Free Crochet Pattern in 7 Sizes! by Moogly
The Loopy Love Blanket is so fun to make! The pattern is easy to memorize, the stitches just fly by, and the end result looks way more complicated than it should. And in 3 colors, you can change colors every row and never have to cut the yarn!

2) Drop Chain Shawl ~ Free Crochet Pattern by I’m Hooked
This is an airy type of shawl with flower tassels; a simple and yet classy-looking design. This easy project is perfect for beginners. You can make this shawl in any length or width that you desire. You can also use any type or weight of yarn and any sized crochet hooks. The shawl is made in one piece with no cutting involved. However, the tassels are made separately but they are all in one piece too.

3) Beach Glass Crochet Necklace ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Fiber Flux
This necklace celebrates the joy of being by the sea. I gathered different shell, glass, and stone beads and incorporated them on a simple crochet chain. If you have never added beads to your crochet projects, this is a great place to start. Likewise, if you can crochet a chain, you can make this easy and pretty necklace.

4) Spinning Summer Slouchy Beanie ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Moogly
The Spinning Summer Slouchy Beanie will help you wind down the summer in style. The design came to me at the same time as the Tallulah Waterfall Scarf. One stitch theory, two very different results! This beanie is light and airy; perfect for summer, or any time of year. It’s all about the fashion – and these spinning stitches are ready for the runway!

5) Pewter Statement Crochet Bracelet ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Fiber Flux
I got so excited making my Beach Glass Crochet Necklace that I decided to make a fun bracelet too. This pretty bracelet is made using beads I recycled from a piece of jewelry I no longer wore, so I turned it into something new! Multiple strands are crocheted using simple chains and tied together onto a toggle clasp. If you have never added beads to your crochet projects, this is a great place to start. Likewise, if you can crochet a chain, you can make this easy and pretty bracelet.

6) Simple Chain Stitch Necklace ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home
If you can make a crochet chain, you can make this necklace! It is super simple, and tons of fun. This necklace is a great way for those just learning to make a finished item, it is a wonderful project for kids (what a great Mother’s Day gift!) and it is even fun for the more advanced. It also makes for great craft fair stock!

7) Chainy Chain Necklace (Pattern + Project) ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Fiber Flux
Good morning lovelies! Just had to share this project I recently finished. This cute necklace is all about chains, but combines two different materials for lots of texture and a unique look. Made using three metal strands and three crochet chain strands, it makes for an interesting combination. To echo the shine of the silver, I used shiny, satiny embroidery floss and a small hook. The result was a super quick instant gratification project.

8) Lazy Daisy Chain ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Posh Pooch Designs
Here is a fun pattern for a crochet daisy chain that can be used in so many ways!

9) Chain Wrap Bracelet ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home
This simple bracelet is great for beginners all the way to experts. All you need to know is how to make a crochet chain, and how to sew on a button. There is a video that shows how to make this bracelet from beginning to end. Even a new crocheter can show off a pretty finished project with this chain wrap bracelet!

10) Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Moogly
The Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf is a great one skein project that really shows off interesting and luxurious yarns. Perfect for thick and thin yarns, as well as yarns with long color changes, it can be made with any size hook and yarn – just start by chaining until you’ve got your desired length in a multiple of 7 sts and go from there. Using this pattern, every cowl will be unique. In the right yarn it’s a wearable work of art!

11) Tween Throw ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Kim Guzman
This afghan features a deceptively easy stitch pattern, suitable for the beginner. It’s easily and quickly memorized and produces a look that no one will ever guess was achieved with such easy stitches. It also features my all-time favorite color of Simply Soft: rubine red. Absolutely gorgeous color.

Don’t forget to check out some of the other great Round Ups that have happened in Blogland over the last week!

This simple bracelet is great for beginners all the way to experts. All you need to know is how to make a crochet chain, and how to sew on a button. There is a video that shows how to make this bracelet from beginning to end. Even a new crocheter can show off a pretty finished project with this chain wrap bracelet!

Chain-Wrap-Bracelet-Free-Crochet-Pattern

Sizes:
Any size you want

Yarn:
Any sport, DK, worsted, or even a slightly chunky yarn will do.

Hook:
Whatever hook gives you the look you like with your yarn

Other Supplies:
Yarn needle
A 3” scrap of non~fuzzy yarn, or a stitch marker
one 3/4″ to 1″ button
Sewing needle
Sewing thread

Gauge:
Not important

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip stitch

Here is a video showing how to make the bracelet start to finish.

Getting Started:
Choose your yarn(s). Try making a chain that is about 6” long with the hook you think might be the right size. If your chain is too loose, switch to a smaller hook, if your chain is too tight, switch to a larger hook. Once you have found the hook that makes a chain you like, then get started!

Chain-Wrap-Bracelet-Free-Crochet-Pattern-by-Jessie-At-Home

Pattern:
Chain: Make chains until your piece wraps around your wrist twice (or as many times as you want your bracelet to wrap).

Place a marker: If you have a marker, attach it now. If you do not, grab a scrap of yarn that is not fuzzy. Place the yarn against the hook and make a chain, catching the yarn as make the chain. This will mark the start of your button loop.

Simple-Chain-Stitch-Necklace-Marker

Simple-Chain-Stitch-Necklace-Place-Marker

Button Loop: Chain until the part of your chain after the marker can make a loop the correct size for your button to go through. Start with about 6 chains for a worsted weight yarn and check the size. You can take chains out or add more to get the correct size loop. Once you have the right size, sl st into the marked stitch, remove marker. This will make the button loop.

Chain: Keep on making your chain. Make the chain so that it is the same length as the chain that leads up to the button hole. Once it is the same length, chain one more, clip the yarn, and pull the cut end through the last chain. Give the cut end a tug to tighten up the end.

Second Color: With the second color, chain until you have a piece that is the same length as the other 2 lengths of chain leading up to the button loop. Sl st into the bottom of the button loop, in between the 2 lengths of chain. Chain again until the last length of chain is as long as the rest, chain one more, clip the yarn, and pull the cut end through the last chain. Give the cut end a tug to tighten up the end. You will now have 4 chains, all the same length, hanging off the button loop.

Button: Thread your needle and sew the 4 chains together at the opposite end from the button loop, just where the chains all start/end. Fold the tails over and stitch them together, then clip them. Place the button over the cut ends and sew it on.

Puff-Stitch-Choker-Free-Crochet-Pattern

Practice your puff stitches and make this attractive choker all at the same time. This choker is great for an evening out, or just used to dress up a tee shirt and jeans. Try adding some beads for a more glamorous look! Make this choker with or without a border, or make it shorter for a bracelet. There is also a video for the visual learners!

Puff-Stitch-Choker-with-beads

SKILL LEVEL:
Easy/Intermediate

YARN:
Crochet thread through worsted weight, any will do. The thicker the yarn, the wider the choker.

TECHNIQUES USED:
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
sl st ~ slip stitch

puff st ~ puff stitch: [yo, insert hook into st, yo, pull through st] 4 times, all in the same st (9 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 9 loops, puff stitch made.

HOOK:
Use the hook that coordinates with your yarn

SIZE:
Any, just stop when the choker is the correct length.

VIDEO:

Puff-Stitch-Choker-with-or-without-beads
PATTERN:
Ch 3, puff st in first ch made, * (ch 2, puff st in ch-2 sp on side of previous puff st) rep from * until choker is desired length. Make sure to have an even number of puff sts so that the choker joins correctly.

Puff-Stitch-Choker-starting
If you do not make a border, ch enough to make a button loop, then join back to the choker, and fasten off.

Border:
Ch 2, turn, * 4 sc in long loop under the next puff st, rep from * across to other end, ch 4, turn, 4 sc in the long loop under the first puff st made, ** 4 sc in long loop under the next puff st, rep from ** across to other end, fasten off. Add button to this end, the ch 4 is the button loop.

Beaded-Puff-Stitch-Choker-Free-Crochet-Pattern

To add beads:
String ALL beads onto the yarn before starting your choker. It is OK to put on too many, as you do not need to use them all, but if you do not sting on enough you will have to add more from the other end of the yarn. So be sure to string on more than you will need.

When making the choker, simply, slip one bead into place while making the 3rd set of (yo, insert hook in st, yo, pull through) on each puff st that you want beaded. Watch the video for clarity of this step.

Wear or give and enjoy!

Free-Crochet-Puff-Stitch-Necklace-3-lengths

Puff Stitch Necklace
Crochet Pattern
Easy/Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This simple and elegant necklace works up quickly using chain sts, puff sts, and a few slip sts. It is reminiscent of a layered chain and bead necklace, but much lighter to wear. With 3 different lengths to choose from, you can pick the one that looks best on you! This pattern is written out with photos to help along the way, and a video to aid the more visual learners. This necklace looks stunning in variegated yarn, but it would also be lovely changing colors every round with 2 or more solid colors, or even just in one color.

SKILL LEVEL:
Easy/Intermediate

YARN:
Almost any ribbon yarn will work, for the samples seen here I used Prism Yarns Tencel Tape in Mojave.
One skein will make all 3 necklaces.

HOOK:
4.00mm/US G

TECHNIQUES USED:
ch ~ Chain
sl st ~ Slip Stitch

puff st ~ puff stitch: [yo, insert hook into st, yo, pull through st] 4 times, all in the same st (9 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 9 loops, puff stitch made.

I have a fun and simple pattern for you today! It is a striped bracelet with tied ends. I make many of these bracelets in a rainbow to sell at InsaniTea. They are a best seller of mine! I use Tahki Cotton Classic yarn to make these fun bracelets; though you can use another yarn of your choice with the corresponding hook size, you just may need to adjust the beginning chain number.

Not quite what I wanted, but it will work

I started writing a wrap pattern at the beginning of October. It was beautiful in my head. Somewhere in the initial planning/math stages, something went awry. I think I tried to do too much. The pretty little picture was much more simple then what happened as I started writing.

Paula-Poncho-knit

So, in the end, I had something much more in the poncho department, then the wrap department. After the initial, “crap! this is so not what I wanted!” I decided I liked my poncho. So I will be putting the finishing touches on the pattern and start testing it, hopefully by the end of the week. If you want to test this pattern, drop me a note in my testing group on Ravelry, and you will be at the top of the line!

We have been told to stay home as much as possible during the Sandy clean up. At least those of us who still have a home, which, thankfully, is most of us in my town. Most of our damage is downed trees and branches, flying debris, and power issues. I took the time to catch up on house work, including washing a pile of blankets and afghans that sorely needed it. After washing, this old afghan of Doug’s was a little…damaged.

Fixing-Doug's-crochet-blanket

It took a bit of thinking and trial and error, but I was finally able to repair it to the point where you can barely see the fix. My tension was a bit tighter then the original  but I had to be sure I had enough yarn, as matching really old acrylic is kind of hard sometimes!

fallen-tree-at-the-park

I did take a trip to the grocery store in the middle of the week for some essentials. The street leading to the store was stop and go. I took a few snaps of the park across the street while waiting. Look at that tree, roots and all.

another-fallen-tree-at-the-park

And another all the way over. Still, we are so much luckier then most around here.

preparing-for-the-holiday-boutique

I also took some time to make up some little items for the girls’ school’s Holiday boutique.

bag-o'-pretties

They ask that all items sold during the school day are $5 or less, so I’ve been making little button flower accessories.

lots-of-crochet-flowers

I’m just about flowered out!

starting-a-new-project

I also started my next pattern. It’s one that has been rolling around in my head for a while.

fancy-knitting

I am making one for each of the girls for Christmas presents, so I needed to start before it was too late!

in-the-works

I’m really happy with how it is turning out, and can’t wait to start testing. It’s a fairly simple pattern.

I think after I make these for the girls, I need to work on another crochet pattern. Knitting takes too long for me!

Hope you all have a safe and happy week. Remember to be nice to each other tomorrow. We all want what we think is best, even if we don’t agree on what that is!

After our long day out an about on Saturday, we stayed in most of the day Sunday.

The girls took some time to read the comics.

They have been working on sharing.

girls-reading-the-Sunday-comics

Doug and I have been doing a bit of pre~packing. At this point, most of the stuff that can be packed early is boxed up. Now we just wait for the actual move 3 weeks from tomorrow. In the mean time, there is now space were I need it to get some patterning, commission, and other crafty stuff done.

packed-and-waiting

This morning when I went to get the girls up they had their noses pressed to the window, staring at the rain. They wanted to test out their new umbrellas, and jump in the puddles.

So on went the plastic shoes, and out went the girls.

Before breakfast.

Still in pajamas.

It was fun.

Eventually I had to get some stuff done. I can’t just play with the girls all day, as much fun as it is.

voting-tokens-medieval

I finished up these voting tokens for an A&S competition we will be having at a medieval event next month.

voting-tokens

Sorry they are a bit fuzzy. I made 40 sets. I have been working on them for a week, so it was nice to finish them. Next I have to make the prizes. I’ll share them with you as well. Most likely some necklaces, some limp bound books, and belt pouches.

lots-of-voting-tokens

I am also working on finishing up a pattern to start testing next week.

Lastly, I am waiting for purple. I have a few rainbow~ie things in the works, but I had to order the purple to go with this lovely cotton yarn (Tahki Cotton Classic)

Have a lovely week, my friends!
