Nothing says I love you like.... A flower that never dies!

SO Maybe it's that I am LOVE with this awesome guy but I am thinking of all sorts of Lovey dovey type things so watch out.... even after February 14th I will be posting all sorts of fun love and great gifts for your man patterns!

HUGE HOOK size M, N or Q will do... I used a Q
Size F hook that is metal ( wire can ruin wooden ones)

Green floral wire ( its like 2-4 dollars for ALOT in the floral department of craft stores!
Red Heart Botique Ribbons yarn  less than 1 hank.. I could MAKE SOOOO many with this one hank! REMEMBER this yarn comes in a hank... DON"T try to use it without first winding it into a ball! *tip* I put mine around a chair, cut the strings and then wind into said ball! soo much easier and less chances of .... dun dun dun YARN VOMIT.....

Optional * I also used green thread along with my floral wire, it looks great both ways it's up to you, green crochet thread any size would look nice too :)

Make flower top:
With Ribbon's yarn and Q hook

chain 3 and join or make a magic circle

Round 1-work 5 hdc into the loop
*turn inside out
Round 2
chain 1, work one hdc post stitch ( around the first hdc of the first row, working in the round don't join) work 2 hdc post stitches around the next.. keep going until your bloom is the size you want. The flower pictured is a total of 5 stitches for the first round and 9 stitches in the next ( technically the last 2 are the start of the 3rd round... but stop when you have the size you want and weave in your ends.)

The stem

DON"T use your wooded hooks!! use your older beat up metal ones!!!
Using floral wire ( thread optional held with floral wire) and a F hook
** reminder working with wire is slower than yarn so don't freak.. alos your chains don't have to be exact it will not be noticeable**
chain 25 ( more or less depending on how tall your vase is..) dc in the third chain from the hook, hdc into the dc , chain 3 sl into the same chain as the dc, chain 8 to 15 more ( I chained eight, but if you use a bigger vase or make a lot you may want to vary)work 4 sc into the 2nd chain from the hook, working in a continual round work 2sc in every sccut the wire with a 10 inch tail weave it into the bottom of your bloom several times so it's secure then wrap it down the steam to give it more stability so when in the vase it will stand up and not look wilted. I also then took my wire and wrapped started at the bottom of my steam and wrapped until the top.

And thats my flower? Will you be making one??? If you do please share it over on the Crochet Chiq Facebook Fan page

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. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here

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***

Easy simple no shaping stocking ornament

Step 1 This is the star stitch but you can make these any size and any stitch just make it in this shape. The above sample has 19 star stiches on the bottom ( 2 rows plus beginning hdc row)and reduces to 10 star stiches ( 3 rows) step 2 turn so the right sides are facing each other, and sew them together like the above picture,. isdsjfklajlkdsjc step three turn right side out! attach a chain 5 if desires so you can hang it. I am making about 30 of these for my 6 year old to hand out as Christmas gifts at school with mini candy canes in them! Below is a crochet chart for a basic hdc stocking but you can use any stitch. * turn at the end of every row,  * ch1 and hdc in the first stitch of every row Row 1 ( starts from the bottom up) chain 38 Row 2 38 hdc Row3-6 repeat row 2 Row 7 starting 11 stitches over ( you can do this my sl or if you alternate colors just attach the yarn on the 11th stitch) hdc in the next 18 stitch  Row 8 until- (desires length i
