Basic instructions on how to make a crochet clock

Hello all! I am posting this from the blogger app on my phobe so forgive me if the layout is off. This is the basic guideline and pattern to make a crochet clock. I will do a more indepth one with pictures later this week and a video next week!

I saw a cute clock last week on facebook and had to give it a try!

I went with a arsy looking one using Jessie yarn but the next one I will make will have 4 ply :) When using novelty yarn make sure your clock hand have extra clearance so they don't get caught!

The supplies I used was a thin wooden circle about the size I wanted my clock and I had the framing department make a small hole in the center so I could put the clock through it. I glued my crochet to the wood circle.
I used the clock kit which is 7.99 there were also ones for 9.99. (All my supplies are from michaels arts and crafts). You also need glue and yarn plus embelishments such as buttons, gems, or crochet flowers.

I used a basic circle pattern for the base.

Make a magic circle9 I worked in a continual round using a stitch marker. I used an h hook),
R 1 10 hdc in circle ( don't pull to tight until after its attached t the clock)
R 2 2 hcd in each for a total of 20hd
R 3 2 hdc in the first hdc, 1 hdc in the next repeat for a total of.     30 hdc
R4 2 hdc in the first hdc, 1 hdc in the next 2 repeat for a total of 40 hdc
R5 2 hdc in the first hdc, 1 hdc in the next 3 repeat for a total of 50 hdc.
I did 5 rounds and a border of ch3 sl repeat

If you would like a larger face on you clock keep increasing but adding 10 each round.

Next I followed the instructions ongthe clock parts. The thick part goes behind the wood and crochet circle you push the hands into place and they snap. Make sure the hands are not smashed againest the crochet or your clock will not work. Once everything fits decide if you are going to sew embelishments or or glue. Sew first then glue ( using fabric glue) you crochet to the wood. Then gule any embelishements and make sure they are cear of the hands. Also most clock peices have a hanger so be mind full of which drection your clock will hang when designing it! Will you make this? Comment below!

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
