Rock Cress Scarves Crochet Patterns by Susan Carlson of Felted Button

When I sat down with my huge stash of Scheepjes *Colour Crafter to begin the motif that was in my head, I really wanted to make something with some depth and dimension. I wanted it to be a good sized square (this one is 5.5"). I wanted something that "moved". And something magical happened! This little motif came together in just over an hour! That NEVER happens in my design world! Magic, I tell ya!

How to Crochet an I-Cord

Maybe you have the same problem I do with eyeglasses? You take them off, set them down, and can't find them when you need them. I decided to solve this little dilemma by crocheting an I-cord Eyeglass Holder. And I'm thrilled to share a little tutorial with you in case you might want to make one, too. Wanna see? (Haha. Pun intended.)

Eye Need a Free Case

I'm getting older. And with that increase in age comes the need for reading glasses. The other day, I removed my favorite glasses and dropped them in my purse. Bad idea. A sharp edge of something scratched them--right in the middle of the lens. But with a crochet hook and some yarn--a lot of problems can be solved, right? So, I'm sharing a free crochet pattern for an Eyewear Case with you!

I immediately went to my Scheepjes Catona yarn as the mercerized cotton is perfect for the durable project I needed. And the colors are so fabulous!

There are so many things about this blanket that make me happy...the little gift boxes, the bows, the simple fun, the border (that lays so flat and has the perfect heft to it), the options for size and color, the portability of squares,and the COLORS! Well, of course, the colors.

I'm a Scheepjes Blogger

It's official! I was invited to join with Scheepjes and their amazing group of bloggers. It's a pretty elite gathering of designers, and I'm honored.

I've been ogling Scheepjes yarn for years--mostly from things I watched the talented Wink of A Creative Being make. But my first opportunity to work with their yarn was during my recent Design Wars challenge.

Felting is Fabulous

Felting really is fabulous! And magical! One of the reasons Felted Button exists is because I love felting my crochet designs--with colorful button adornments, of course, too. But here are six reasons why I love felting so much...

1. Mistakes can easily be hidden so there's less frogging and professional finish work required. And it's almost impossible to mess up when felting.
