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

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

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

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

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

 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
