Asanas Pillow Reveal

Since the beginning of the new year, I've been super busy planning lots of crochet designs for the year, hosting my 5th Dimension Blanket CAL, and keeping my hook flying! I probably should have spent more time on my computer than with my crochet hook, but who wants to do that? Not me. Let me show you one of the things that has recently rolled off my hook.

5th Dimension Scarf -- Free Crochet Pattern

The 5th Dimension Blanket CAL is now underway as folks are busy gathering materials and working out their gauge. I decided it might be fun to share "one dimension" of the pattern with you. See, when I was designing the blanket in panels, the first one I made magically made its own little scarf design.

Another Way to Avoid the Turning Chain Hole

You may remember this post from a while ago...


3 options for avoiding those holes on dc-turns by Felted Button

In it, I show 3 ways to work turns for a dc (US terms) when working in rows that helps reduce the gap rather than working a chain 3. The 3 ideas work for me--my favorite being the third--made by stacking two sc's on top of each other. You can see all 3 methods and which one is your favorite here.

The Art of Crochet Blankets Book Review

I've spent a bit of time lately contmeplating my crochet.  Why do I do it? What is its purpose in my life? Does it play a role in other's lives? There are varied and convoluted answers to these questions, but one answer that emerged during my deep think was that it is a means for expressing myself artistically. This is the piece that is much stronger than just making something functional--or even merely stylish. It is an expression of my inspiration, feelings and art. It is literally a piece of me. Guess what?

How To Crochet a Clean Edge Along a Rough Edge


How to Crochet Clean Edges along Rough Edges Tutorial by Felted Button (Colorful Crochet Patterns)

Maybe it's a blanket border. Maybe it's around a dishcloth or sweater. Or maybe along the edge of a scarf or cowl. But anytime you are instructed in a pattern to "work stitches evenly along edge" you are faced with a challenge. Where do you put your hook? How do you keep the stitches along the back from looking uneven and horrible? Particularly if it is in a contrasting color!

Let me show you what I mean, and then I'll provide you a simple technique to help make it look super neat and tidy--on BOTH SIDES!
