Crochet Granny Shrug

Look at me getting 2 posts in the same week. I’m trying to get it together crochet-wise so hopefully you’ll be seeing and reading more from me. 

This is my Crocheted Granny Shrug. I’m pretty sure it’s a universal pattern but I’m giving credit to Nadia at Yarnutopia. I love her YouTube videos. She’s very easy for me to follow. 

Here’s the details on my particular shrug:

Yarn used: Bernat Pop in color Scarlett Sizzle (3 skeins)

Hook: K

Dimensions: pattern calls for square to be 40 inches but I made mine 35 inches and used a smaller hook size because I’m short and thought it would’ve been too big and long. Next time I’ll be doing the full 40 inches. Also I ran out of this yarn so I didn’t do 2 rounds of edging or the cuffs on the sleeves. Even still it is very comfortable and cozy.

Crochet Granny Triangle Cowl

Hello to all. I can’t believe it’s apparently been 18 days since my last post. Thanks WordPress for informing me via Stats. 
Today I’m sharing a Crocheted Granny Triangle Bandana Cowl. I knew in my head exactly what I wanted but didn’t know how to translate it into my Cowl. Thanks to Youtube I found exactly what’s been in my head and how to achieve it. The pattern and method I used is from Tea Time Crochet. Yarn used is Yarn Bee Sugarwheel in color Soda Pop Party. Hook size used is J. Since this is a self-striping yarn I did need to cut the yarn to ensure each of the 4 colors made into my cowl. This was a really quick project and I will be making more to add to my craft fair inventory as well as my Etsy shop.

Another Christmas tree skirt completed. This the second. I’m having a hard time getting myself to realize that maybe I also need a couple of non-traditional colors for a skirt. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

WIP Wednesday 9/6/2017

Here’s what I’ve finished and started this past week.

Yesterday I got registered for the Holiday Creation Craft Show. My main item I want to have are Christmas tree skirts. This morning I completed the first.

I also worked up one granny square. I need to grab another Bernat Pop in Scarlett Sizzle complete my granny shrug by Yarnutopia.

How’s your weekly projects coming along?

Overcoming Myself

So here’s the thing: I usually don’t do WIP Wednesday because I have this “thing” about showing unfinished projects. I love seeing other people’s projects even if they are unfinished so today I’m overcoming myself and putting my incomplete projects out there. I’m working all these simultaneously so no project gets left behind.

The first 2 projects are actually finished but that’s just as of early this morning so they’re worth mentioning.

1. Phone cover wristlet. I just made a cover of half double crochet and got the wristlet part from Pinterest ideas.

2. Basic Apron. I made this for someone at work. I used a crossover stitch based on a YouTube video.

Christmas Tree Skirt by Smooth Fox. This one will just be solid red. I’m using Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn.

Bernat Pop Granny Square Cocoon by Yarnutopia. This has made me kinda obsessed with Granny Squares.

Time Flies

I didn’t realize until just now how much time has passed since my last post. I truly am sorry. Nevertheless, my fingers must crochet at least a few stitches everyday. Some days I’m blessed to get that.

Even as time flies and life moves on Christmas season is now on the minds of many crafters. I’m no exception. I’ve been busy trying to make items for my first craft show. Unfortunately I missed out last year but not this year!

Here’s my first item which will be available for $20.
