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. 

Materials:

300 yards (275 meters) sport weight yarn
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

Crochet stitch pattern

Pin It

Hi, how are you all? I have an interesting stitch pattern for you. It's my current favourite and I'm itching to create something using it but since my hands are full right now I'll have to shelve it. So I hope  you make something out of it and I would love to see what it is. 

Use any yarn and a suitable hook. For the sample pattern shown here I used light worsted weight/DK weight yarn and a G/4 mm crochet hook. You will need 2 colors for working this stitch. It looks gorgeous if you use a variegated yarn as the main color.

Let's begin!

Using the main color (A), make chains in multiples of 6 + 4

Row 1: Skip 3 ch, 2 dc in the 4th ch (called half shell) (the skipped 3 ch will count as the 1st st), skip 2 ch, sc in next ch, skip 2 ch, **5 dc in next ch (called shell), skip 2 ch, sc in next ch, skip 2 ch** Repeat from ** to ** across, 3 dc in the last ch (half shell). Pull the complementing color (B) through the loop and tighten it. Cut off color A.

Row 2: Using color B, ch 1, sc in same st, ch 1, dc in the 1st dc of next shell, ch 1, dc in the last dc of the previous half shell, ch 1, **sc in the 3rd dc of next shell, ch 1, dc in the 1st dc of next shell (forms X), ch 1, dc in the last dc of previous shell, ch 1** Repeat from ** to ** across, sc in the last st. Join color A and turn.

Row 3: Using color A, ch 1, sc in sc, **shell in the ch-1 space of X, sc in next sc** Repeat from ** to ** across. Join color B. Turn.

Row 4: Using color B, ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in same st, ch 1, sc in the 3rd dc of next shell, ch 1, **dc in the 1st dc of next shell, ch 1, dc in the last dc of previous shell, ch 1, sc in the 3rd dc of next shell, ch 1** Repeat from ** to ** across, 2 dc in last st. Join color A and turn.

Row 5: Using color A, ch 3, 2 dc in same st, sc in next sc, **shell in the ch-1 space of next X, sc in next sc** Repeat from ** to ** across, 3 dc in last st. Join color B and turn.

Row 6: Using color B,  ch 1, sc in same st, **ch 1, dc in the space after sc one row below, ch 1, dc in the space before sc one row below, ch 1, sc in the 3rd dc of next shell**  Repeat from ** to ** across finishing with sc in the last st.

Repeat rows 3 to 6.

Tunisian crochet simple stitch cowl - free pattern

Pin It

 

Learn how to crochet a Tunisian simple stitch cowl using my video tutorial for absolute beginners. I used about 120-125 grams of light worsted weight/DK weight variegated yarn and a 5 mm Tunisian crochet hook. You can say Tunisian crochet is a combination of both crochet and knitting techniques. The stitches are worked as you work crochet stitches using a hook similar to a crochet hook except for the length but the loop of each stitch is held on the hook as in knitting and completed later as you make a return pass. Here you are working only one side. There is no turning over. A forward pass is made moving from right to left and a return pass is made from left to right where the stitches made during the forward pass are completed. The cowl that I made measures about 30 cm wide and 22 cm high and fits snuggly around the neck. The length and width is adjustable.
