Moon Star Motif

flower, posies or a star? I couldn't decide what it looked like more, all I know is It makes me think of spring and makes me smile!



If you are unfamiliar with the puff stitch please read my how to guide here

I used Loops and Thread Necessities  in Butter and teal/ turquoise and a size J hook.
RedHeart soft or any other 4 ply worsted weight yarn can be used


Start with a magic circle using Butter
Rd 1 Make 1 puff, 1 chain repeat so you have 8 and 8, sl into top of first puff
Rd 2 in each space make 1 puff, chain 2, 1 puff for a total of 16 puffs, sl into top of first puff
It shouldn't look pointy at all yet but like a circle
Rd 3 Make *1puff, chain2, 1 puff, in next stitch make one puff* repeat until the end for a total of 24 puffs.
 It will not look like a circle and may lay funny until the last round now

Here is a close up of the puffs



Switch to Teal attach in any color and be sure to continue crocheting on the right side in the right direction
Round 4  Make a puff, chain 2, make a puff ( do this for every corner), chain 1 make a puff in the next stitch ( do this for every side.  for a total of 32 puffs, slip into the top of the first puff
Round 5 chain 1, 5 sc in each  corner ( 7 if you would like it extra pointy) 3 sc in each side
Last round!!!!!!!!!!  2 sc in the third sc of each corner and one sc in every other stitch!!!

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 h
