Abstract Autumn Scarf

I recently lead a mystery crochet along and this was the project I came up with!  I wanted something easy all skill levels could do but also something that wasn't going to be boring!!!

Doesn't this just SCREAM it's fall!!! To me I think it looks like leaves, but with blocking it looks more like flowers depending on your color choices. This is Vanna's choice in terra cotta


Supplies

1 ball ( i didn't use the whole ball!) of 4 ply yarn  * used Vanna's choice in Terra Cotta*
and size G crochet hook


Scroll down for videos

Beginning motif

Chain 6, join, chain 6 ( in loop made by first ch 6) repeat 4 times for a total of 5 ch6 and 5 sc.

Foundation single crochet (fsc) * scroll down for videos 2 and 4 where you can see how to do fsc* repeat Beginning motif Sl into a close ch 6 loop

from here on out is the abstract part, we will basically be repeating this motif with a fsc in between ( the fsc helps so that the motifs are not on top of each other) as you can see in my picture above in some areas I just ent back and forth but in others i would add and extra motif before going to the next side.. You decide and play around with it. I always view patterns as outlines. If you have any questions feel free to email ( crochetchiq@gmail.com) or comment below. 

fsc, repeat motif, sl into a nearby ch 6

Continue until you have 60 motifs or have the length you desire.

This pattern was written about here

*** you can always cut the yarn and weave in your ends if you go too far one way and can't figure out how to get your scarf back on track.  if you like the way this scarf goes back and forth check out my Queen Anne's Lace





Here is a lovely example from viewer  Sandy Branch!

  5. Very nice..I love this pattern..Thought I could make a table runner for my Autumn table OR a scarf ....One suggestion though, next time use better lighting when doing a video..I had difficulty seeing especially when demonstrating on how to do a FSC and when doing a SC on the other side of the FSC as seen in the second video. Thanks!

  6. Written instructions with an illustration or two would help. I have to agree with Vicky. I have tried the pattern and ripped it out many times before giving up...maybe I will try again later. Nice concept and very pretty. I was hoping I could create one for my granddaughter for Thanksgiving.

  8. I was actually relieved to see that others had had problems with this scarf. At first attempt (it seemed easy enough), I too was frustrated that it just didn't seem to work like I thought, but after trying again, I was able to get it going. Yay! Thanks for the cute idea and tutorial :)

Cross Bangle

I wanted to crochet a sideways cross bracelet for some time now but it wasn't until I received this lovely STARDUST( by Red Heart yarn ) that I actually sat down to make it!  This project will fly by you will want to make one for everyone at church :)


Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
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.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

***Add the cross part***


attach the yarn to the sid…

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook.

Make a magic circle

Round 1
Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Bottom of the cross
When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.

Chiq Shell Shorts

Say the name 10 times fast hahahaha!




I wrote this pattern at the request of AFC Check  them out to see all the other amazing patterns and videos they have!!!


Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50


3- make shells (2hdc,ch1,2hdc) across skipping 3 sc in between each shell. 4- do six rows of shells ( skipping 4) …
