Cross Tapestry Crochet square

It's Holy week so I thought I would come up with a simple cross that is a great introduction to tapestry crochet. The color changes are simple :) Do this up in cotton and it's a cute wash/ dish cloth. Or use just about any yarn and make a scarf, or blanket by making lots of these and attaching them. Try out a variety of colors.
Before starting this pattern I recommend you do a square of 16 by 16 sc. If your stitches aren't even I wouldn't recommend this pattern just yet.


Supplies
I used green, pink and off white. and a size "H" crochet hook

** it doesn't matter which yarn you use but use the same brand because different brands are not always the same size***

Skill level is Intermediate 



 Before beginning here is a helpful link on what tapestry crochet is at
http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/ 

* every stitch is single crochet , chain 1 and turn at the beginning of every round. Starting at the bottom.

I will write out either G,W,or P, each one represent 1 stitch


feel free to use your own colors G=green O= off white P= pink


We are making a 16X16 square

16 fsc or chain and one row of sc in green

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.


I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here
