What is Crochet Chiq?

So you maybe be asking yourself, what is Crochet Chiq? Isn't crochet something you see old ladys do? I have started this blog not only to share my own creations but other Chiq items. Crochet is a great and fun way to let your inner diva come out. 

First I will start with a little bit about me, Hello everyone I'm Mary Kathryn. I am 25 and a proud mom of 2 wonderful boys under the age of 5. I just got a job teaching as a crochet instructor at a local Micheal's Arts and Crafts store. I also will start another job in the fall as a children's choir director.  I learned how to crochet about two year ago via youtube.comThe following are the two sites that taught me what I know.

Mikey from the crochet crowd is an amazing resource in pretty much all areas of crochet and his stuff is always chiq and fabulous. you can find him @www.thecrochetcrowd.com 

Teresa is another great one to watch especially for cute crochet animals and hats. You can find her @ http://www.youtube.com/show?p=Nf83vF1w3bU&tracker=show_av
  
So this is my way to give back and just try to share my passion for the fiber art that is crochet! 
I will be posting (as much as possible) things I have made along with my own free patterns and useful links to all the other divas and divos that are interested in pursuing this fabulous art form!! If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
