Chiq Oh my Stars lace scarf

I love the new Vanna's Sequin from Lion Brand and thinking back to their fashion show in January I was inspired to pair it with Vanna's Glamour for this lace scarf 

The top part of this photo is VG and the bottom is VS .. I love the how different but subtle the change is between to 2 yarns! It's like they were meant to be used together! 

1 ball Vanna's Glamour 
1 ball Vanna's Sequin 

** would look awesome in just one 4 ply yarn as well... ***

Size G crochet hook

Stitches used : ch,dc,sc tr, thats it! if you know those give this lace a shot you will be amazed on how quickly it grows!! 

Ch 26 
Row 1 sc in 2nd ch from  your hook, *ch2 , skip 3 ch's ,work 1 dc,ch5,1dc in next ch, ch2, skip 3 ch's 1 sc into the next ch* repeat until the end, turn

Row 2 ( and every even row ) ch 6  dc into first sc, *ch2, sc into 3rd ch on the 5 ch, ch2, work dc,ch5,dc into next sc*repeat until the last dc, ch5,dc instead work a dc,ch2, tr.   turn .... This may sound confusing ... however just think this: dc,ch5,dc always goes into the sc's and an sc always goes into the 3rd sc of the 5 sc.

on the left you see the dc,ch2 tr...

Row 3 ( and every odd row ) ch 1 sc into tr, *ch2, dc,ch5,dc into the next sc, ch 2, sc into the 3rd ch of 5 ch,* repeat until end 

I did worked this pattern and switched between the 2 yarns every six inches.

Block if desired

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.. **

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

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
