Hey! Couldn’t sleep last night thinking about what to blog next! Is that silly??? Anyway, here’s an idea that will perhaps help inspire and motivate one of you.
I purchased this little book several years ago at a local store. I have 2 others as well. And a knitters guide which I have not become brave enough to tackle.
I hadn’t given them any thought until the other day when I decided to share my Seed Stitch Throw, which is where I got my inspiration:
Preview this book on Google Book Search (I hope this works!)
This concise handbook offers you 19 crochet pattern stitches and the basic guidelines for using them to jazz up your own designs.
Multiple of 8 + 5 chs. Row 1 (right side): Dc in fifth ch from hook *skip next 3 chs, 5 dc in next ch, skip next 3 chs, (dc, ch 1 dc) in next ch; repeat from * across. Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn; 2 dc in next ch-1 sp, skip next 3 dc (dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc, *5dc in next ch-1 sp, skip next 3 dc, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc; repeat from * across to last sp, 3 dc in last sp. Row 3: Ch 4, turn; dc in first dc, *5dc in next ch-1 sp, skip next 3 dc, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc; repeat from * across. Repeat rows 2 and 3 for pattern.
So there is what I have started. My first thought was . . . dishcloth. But, this yarn is so soft and beautiful, now I am thinking . . . Spring scarf??? (Some nice long fringe)
I’ll keep plugging away and see what I come up with.
