INSTRUCTIONS:

NOTE: FOR A WIDER SCARF – use an odd number of chain stitches plus two additional chains. Example 25 plus 2 for 27 beginning chain’s.

Row 1:  Ch 19, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 15 ch’s.  MARK ANY STITCH AS THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCARF. (17 dc)

Row 2: WS Ch 4 (counts as dc plus ch-1 sp), turn, sk next st, dc in next st, *ch 1, sk 1 st, dc in next st* repeat from * to * across. (9 dc, 8 ch-1 sps)

Row 3:  RS Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, dc in next st or ch-1 sp across. (17 dc)

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your scarf is the desired length. Always end after a row 3 repeat.  Weave in ends of yarn when you are done

Attach the peace signs:
Lay out your scarf with the right side facing.  Arrange the peace signs in an attractive pattern.  Set peace signs aside in the order you want to sew them on. 

Once you know your arrangement of your peace signs that you find attractive, using small needle and thread, attach your peace signs to the scarf.

Remember that you will place half the peace signs on each side of the scarf so be sure to arrange them facing one direction on the left side of the scarf and reverse them on the right side of the scarf so they face the normal way and are not upside down on the second side of the scarf.

Join in the Designer Showcase Sampler CAL for 2013


I'm pleased to announce that I've been asked to participate in the Designer Showcase CAL with Melinda Miller and I'm looking forward to sharing my design with you all. Shhh….that’s all I can reveal at this time! :)

Here's the information regarding the CAL so get your yarn and hooks ready.

Melinda Miller from MoCrochet and Melinda Miller Designs on Ravelry is hosting a unique CAL for 2013. This year we will crochet a Designer Showcase Sampler. It will be comprised of twelve – 12” afghan blocks that are designed by various designers. Each month a mystery Designer will be revealed and you will get to know her and her designs.  At the end of the year, you will have enough blocks to make your very own Designer Showcase Afghan to keep for yourself or to give away.  

There are many talented crochet Designers, and this year we will put the spotlight on some of them. Please join us in welcoming some of these talented Designers as we create our new afghan. At the first of each month, you will be introduced to a new Designer and her design. She will also be available for questions and chat. Just follow the link to Melinda’s Ravelry group above.

Happy Crocheting!

Kelley H's crochet hook has the following

KELLEY H says:

Currently I am working on a few things. Trying to get my Christmas presents done. One of the gifts I am working on is a pair of fingerless gloves. Not the BEST picture but you can at least see the stitching on it. I got the pattern from another blogger. Pattern is found here  http://crochetedpanda.blogspot.com/2010/12/double-double-armwarmers.html  I did 1 thing different from the pattern. When I sowed them up I used a different color to give it a little bit of a border. I used my favorite yarn to work with right now. It is Hobby Lobby's brand called I Love This Yarn. 


The second one is a scarf for my mother that has a v-stitch. I believe I got the idea from a Lion Brand free pattern. I have a picture of it attached also. 

I could attach about 10 other photos of the stuff I have recently finished for Christmas but I will refrain today. 

Hope you are having a wonderful day and sorry to see that someone is giving away your patterns! :(

Kelley H.

What's on your hooks and needles?

Please make some comments and send me some pictures thru an email with what you're working on.  Include the links to where people can obtain the pattern and I'll post them on the blog.  In addition, please email me what you want me to make video's about.  I've been asked to make a couple of video's for knitting but I'd love to hear what everyone wants a video on.  It can be knitting or crocheting.

Happy Crocheting!

Designer's Showcase Afghan 2013

Melinda Miller of MoCrochet and Melinda Miller Designs (a Ravelry group) has given me instructions on how my followers can print out patterns from the blog instead of heading to Ravelry to download the pattern.  Please give it a shot. At the bottom of each post is a Joliprint icon.  Thank you so much Melinda.

Additionally, I'm pleased to say that Melinda has asked me to participate in the Designer’s Showcase Afghan 2013. Each month will showcase a new designer and their 12” X 12” afghan block.  So stay tuned and I hope many of you participate.  At the end of the year you will have a great afghan to stitch together.  Each month there will be one square added.

I also have been contacted by AllFreeCrochetPatterns and it's other affiliates over the past 2 years and asked to let them post some of my patterns.  Again this year, they are going to be featuring multiple patterns in various e-books.  This brings me great joy. 

Happy Crocheting!

INSTRUCTIONS:

CHART IS READ FROM BOTTOM UP.  RIGHT TO LEFT ON RIGHT SIDE ROWS (knit rows) AND LEFT TO RIGHT ON WRONG SIDE ROWS (purl rows).  THE CHART BEGINS WITH THE BOTTOM LINE OF THE ACTUAL WRITING

If you are unfamiliar with the wrap and turn method and picking up the wraps when knitting in the round, please watch this video from PlanetPurl.  There are many versions showing this technique but at least this video shows the technique using a hat although they don’t show a stitch marker showing the beginning of the round. 


This project can also be knit flat if you do not want to do the method above.

Measure hat to see if it is the approximate length you’d like. Smaller size hats are approx 6” before decreasing, larger hats can be from 7” to 8” depending on your preferences. Hat pictured is 7” before beginning decrease rounds. Follow decrease rounds if your hat is the proper length.  Repeat round 30 as many times as needed before your decrease rounds begin.

DECREASE ROUNDS - Use color A for all decrease rounds and change to dpn’s when sts get tight to knit.
Round 1:  *(K6, K2tog) repeat from *

Testers Found - Live Love Laugh Dream Blankie

I have enough testers now.

Thank you,

Donna

Testers Wanted - Live Love Laugh Dream Blankie



Please read this ENTIRE posting before responding that you want to test.

This blanket is an INTERMEDIATE project.  It requires concentration when working the words around the blanket. Blanket patterns always go super fast.  If you aren't fast, you will not be able to test it.  Once I have set out a posting that I have found enough testers, please don't ask to test.  Additionally, do not ask to test if you do not have quiet time in order to work the pattern.  

If you want to test, send me an email to the address below with your Follower name. Only the first FIVE people emailing me will receive the pattern to test. I respond to all requests. If you don't receive a response, send another email as your original email may have gone into spam. Please don't post a comment that you'd like to test. I can't send a copy of the pattern to a "comment." You have to email me as it states. Don't send me a comment through the Google feed that you want to test. You must use the email address below.

Read the rules below:

1. Must be a member of Ravelry, a follower of this blog and a subscriber to this blog.

2. Must be able to finish testing by Sunday September 30, 2012

3. Must be able to send me a picture of your finished item attached to an email. People not following through and sending me a picture or not posting on Ravelry will no longer be able to test future patterns.

4. Must be able to send me errors of any kind you find in the pattern. 

5. It is mandatory as of January 23, 2011 that all testers add their test projects on Ravelry after I post the link to the pattern. Once I post the pattern, you'll need to go back to Ravelry and link it to the proper pattern. If you posted your project ahead of time, it won't be linked to the pattern without using the exact name I called the pattern once it was posted. Anyway, believe me, I will be checking. If 10 people want to test, there should be 10 projects on Ravelry.

6. You can use whatever brand of 4 ply yarn you'd like to use. NO VARIEGATED YARN OR STRIPPED YARNS. The pattern will give you the specific's of what I used but you can use whatever colors of yarn you'd like to use.  You will need two skeins of white or whatever color you are using instead of white, two skeins of the other main color and two additional colors but you will not use the entire skeins.

Free SmoothFox's Beginner Knit Illusion Heart Pattern



BEGINNER KNIT ILLUSION HEART PATTERN

FOR A SCARF OR SQUARE

Created by Donna Mason-Svara a.k.a. SmoothFox  ©2012  
Version 08/05/2012

Hobby Lobby “I Love This Yarn” 4 Ply medium worsted yarn
Color A: BUTTERCUP (background color)
Color B:  LIMELIGHT (heart color)

NEEDLE Size: US 6 – 4.0 mm
Size:  9.5” Length x 7.5” Wide
Skill level:  Advanced beginner
Notions: 2 stitch markers, Yarn needle

Stitches Abbreviations
Knit – K
Purl – P
Place Marker – PM
Cast On - CO

My Crochet & Knit related gifts: httP://zazzle.com/smoothfox*

If you want a .pdf copy of this pattern or if you make this item – please click on this link below and add your own pictures as a project on Ravelry. Just click on the crochet hook with the words “Hook It” if this is a crochet pattern or if it is a knit pattern click on the words “Cast On” near the top right side and this will add your item as a project. Then you can add the pictures when you have completed your project.


GENERAL INFOMATION:

UNDERSTANDING ILLUSION/SHADOW KNITTING
Illusion Knitting uses flat Knitting (Knits on the right side, Purls on the wrong side) and raised Knitting (Purls on the right side, Knits on the wrong side) to raise the colors you want. This way, when you look at your item straight on, you see stripes of the two colors in your project and when you look at your project from a different angle, you see the magic of Illusion Knitting.

To Illusion knit one row on a regular chart it takes 4 rows of Knitting.  For this pattern, the first two rows are in one color (the heart color OR the image you are wanting to stand out) and the second two rows are in the background color.  Starting on the right side, the first and every odd row number are Knit across all stitches.  On the wrong side (every even numbered row) you will Knit the stitches you want to raise, and Purl the stitches you want to lay flat. 

Here is the video for this project:

As my blog consists mostly of crochet people I have made parts of the video very simple so that crocheter’s can learn to knit.  Speed thru the parts you don’t need.


Here is the link if you need it instead of watching the video here: 


INSTUCTIONS:

Using your background color with a long tail cast on – CO 5 stitches, PM, CO 21 stitches, PM, CO 5 stitches.

Knit 1 row BACKGROUND COLOR (in this pattern the yellow is the background color)

This is the FILLER section;
Row 1: K31 HEART COLOR
Row 2: K5, P21, K5 HEART COLOR
Row 3: K31 BACKGROUND COLOR
Row 4: K31 BACKGROUND COLOR
Repeat above rows 3 or 4 times





NOTE: THE PINK 5 SQUARES TO THE RIGHT AND LEFT OF THE ACTUAL HEART ON THE CHART ARE JUST THE BORDER STITCHES.  THE ACTUAL PATTERN IS FOR THE HEART BUT DOES INCLUDE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE BORDER.

Charts are normally read from the bottom up, right to left on all odd row numbers and from left to right on all even row numbers.  As this chart is the same when read from right to left or left to right you can read from right to left on all rows.  Start in the bottom right corner as line 1.

You can work strictly from the chart above, instead of reading the pattern below if you’d like and for each line of the chart do the following 4 rows:

Row 1: (heart color) knit one row plain
Row 2: (heart color) knit the border, purl the non-heart pattern, knit the heart pattern, purl the non-heart pattern, knit the border
Row 3: (background color) knit one row plain
Row 4: (background color) knit the border, knit the non-heart pattern, purl the heart pattern, knit the non-heart pattern, knit the border

If you are going to work strictly from the chart and are going to work a scarf, you must see the instructions at the end of the written instructions for the second half of the scarf as you must reverse some of the rows around.

Fourth - Row 42

Then you would go down a line of the chart and work
First – Row 39
Second – Row 40
Third – Row 37
Fourth – Row 38
