Crochet scarf with flower trim - free pattern

Pin It


Hey all, how was your week? Mine went pretty fast. I'm pretty excited to say that the past one and half months had been very busy for me. My YouTube channel keeps me quite occupied throughout the day and I'm not complaining. Starting a channel had been on my mind for over a year but I was quite skeptical. I thought that I did not have enough skills on the technical side as well as my crochet side. Had it not been for my son's encouragement I wouldn't have ventured into it. My son walked me through the entire process of editing and uploading and all other necessary technicalities and still assists me whenever I'm stuck. 

I upload at least 2 videos per week and if you haven't visited my channel go ahead and have a look and please subscribe. Click here to visit my channel.

Filet crochet bag - free pattern

Pin It

 

My first big project when I learnt to crochet was a filet crochet table cloth. It was very easy as you use only chains and double crochet stitches. Then I slowly progressed to more advanced stitches and techniques and filet crochet took a back seat. Lately I had been seeing a few filet crochet bags on Pinterest and I wanted one for me too. So I designed this very simple bag and I'm so much in love with this design that I'm considering making a pullover using this pattern. 



This pattern is written using standard American terms.

D/3.25 mm crochet hook
stitch markers
yarn hook

Stitches/Abbreviations Used

** - repeat instructions within asterisks as many times as instructed
[ ] - repeat stitches within parenthesis as a set as many times as instructed
Ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet (UK - double crochet)
dc - double crochet (UK - treble)

Crochet cluster V stitch pattern - video tutorial

Pin It

 

Hi, the cluster V stitch pattern is my latest video tutorial. I'm in love with this stitch. It's so easy and looks so beautiful. I really want to make something using this pattern but I haven't decided what, may be a blanket in multiple colors. It would be fun to make. 

To make this stitch, make chains in multiples of 3 + 1.

Row 1: (cluster, ch 1, cluster) in the 5th ch from hook (the skipped chains will count as a dc and ch 1), **skip 2 ch, (cluster, ch 1, cluster) in next ch** Repeat from ** to ** across until you have 2 ch left, skip next ch, dc in last ch. Turn.

If you are using a new color, pull the new color through the loop of the last st before turning. Tighten the loop and start working using the new color. Cut off the previous color.

Row 2: Ch 3, (cluster, ch 1, cluster) in each ch-1 space across, dc in last st. Turn.

Repeat row 2 until you reach your desired height.   

The cluster stitch here is worked slightly differently. 

Cluster - (Yarn over, insert hook into chain and pull yarn) 3 times, yarn over and pull through 6 loops on hook, yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops
