Lettering

Use CC and smaller hook for lettering.

Lettering can be added in either surface crochet in a slip stitch or in embroidery using the chain stitch. Choose a word and either write it in cursive or find a cursive font, then use the image as your visual aid as you work.

Separate the letters into 3 sections, top, middle, and bottom. The top section starts after Rnd 14 and ends after Rnd 18 (4 rows). The middle section starts after Rnd 18 and ends after Rnd 22 (4 rows). The bottom section starts after Rnd 22 and ends after Rnd 26 (4 rows).

Make each letter 4 stitches wide in the middle, with 1 stitch space between them.

Use pins to mark where your letters will go on the brim before you begin stitching.

Finishing

Block brim. Spray starch can be used for a stiffer brim if desired.

Finishing

Sew the starfish flowers to the front of the bag. I placed them on a bit of an angle so they cover the joining stitches. The large one is near the top, then the medium followed by the small one a little bit above the base of the bag.

You can add a button to the centers of the starfish for some added texture and interest.

I Like Crochet Magazine by Rosann Fleischauer - 3w ago

 

Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: 71” wingspan x 31” depth

Gauge: 16 sts and 8 rows = 4” [10 cm] in Double Crochet

Materials

Yarn: Feza Baby Gradient Kit (50% Cotton, 50% Viscose; 960 yards [878 meters]/400 grams): #500 Red (1 set)

Hook:  US Size G/6 (4.0mm)

Notions: Tapestry needle, Shout Color Catcher

Pattern Notes

Triangle is worked in one single piece, starting at the top from the middle.

At the beginning of each row, one stitch is added by working a stitch into the first stitch of the row where it meets the bottom of the turning chain.

At the end of each row, increase one stitch by working twice into the last stitch of the row.

To maximize the size, work until only 3″ of a color remains then add new yarn. Prototype was crocheted and pattern written such that all color transitions remain along one of the selvedge edges.

The nature of the stitches used creates a two-sided project with no “right” or “wrong” side per se.

Colors as described as Color 1-4 are C1 – White, C2 – lighter of the two mixed white and solid skeins, C3 – darker of the two mixed white and solid skeins, C4 – Solid Color

Turn work at end of each row.

Because not all clothes washers maintain the same temperature throughout the wash load, a Shout Color Catcher is used to ensure colors do not run when laundering your finished shawl.

This pattern was developed to compliment the exceptionally soft and slick hand of Baby yarn, substitutions should be carefully considered as they may not yield the same results.

Pattern

Using C1, ch 5, join with sl st to form small circle.

Note: Row 1 is worked through the center of the circle.

I Like Crochet Magazine by Amy Gunderson - 3w ago

Looking for a fun lace pattern to try out this summer? We’ve pulled together a few of our favorite stitches for you to work up. Not only can lace crocheting be fun and addicting, but crochet has so many more possibilities to create lace compared to knitting.Lace can be as simple as working double crochet, chain 1 to create an open mesh. It can be short stitches paired with tall stitches along with chain spaces to create cool looking scallops. And more!

Have you ever seen a lace pattern that you like the look of but aren’t crazy about the finished item? No problem! It can be easy as cake to use a lace pattern in a simple item like a scarf or rectangular shawl. Just take a look at number of stitches required in each lace repeat, cast on a multiple of stitches that works, add a few stitches to each side for edging, and you’re good to go!

Below are a few examples of lace repeats taken from projects, and put into a simple rectangular form. The yarns used in these swatches are different than the yarn originally used in order to show just how much the look of the pattern can change. We promise; once you start, you won’t be able to stop crocheting lace!

Dancing Diamond Dolman Top from June 2016

Yarn: Radiant Cotton (originally in Cotton True Sport)

Notes: The all-over single crochet-based diamond pattern paired with the scalloped edging at each end would make a cute summer scarf

Boho Beauty Fringe Tank from August 2015

Yarn: Kelbourne Mojave (originally Flax)

Notes: In the original project, the body of the tank top was mostly double crochet, while the hem used the Windows lace pattern. In the swatch shown here, I’ve striped the Windows pattern with a single row of double crochet. Wouldn’t this look cute as an all-over pattern on a scarf or stole?

Seaglass Tank from June 2017

Yarn: Cottonwood (original yarn Flax)

Notes: The Seaglass Tank used the Shells stitch pattern on the lower part of the body, and increased to create a swingy shape. In this swatch, I’ve worked the Shells pattern outward from the center to illustrate how a scarf could be made. I love the scalloped edge formed by the shells!

I’m a first generation American, and both of my parents came to the as World War II refugees. Crafts were not a part of their lives. Until I was on that houseboat I had no experience crafting. That turned out to be a good thing – I knew nothing about making garments and dived into it with no preconceived notions or fears. At a CGOA conference, I met publishers in the yarn industry  – the great Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss — who were interested in my designs, and who mentored me through the process of becoming a professional designer. I’ve been learning on the job ever since.

One thing that’s always fascinated me in crochet is the limitless number of stitch patterns and the fabrics they create. Crochet fabric can be light and airy or dense and heavy, and the designs one can create on the surface range from simple and clean to intricately patterned laces and dazzling color work. Naturally I’ve purchased every stitch dictionary I could find, both old and new. A major part of my studies in designing has involved hours of swatching stitches to discover which yarns and fibers bring out their beauty.

Phase two of my training involved how to design with stitch patterns. Information about this topic is quite scarce. I found some excellent guidance in a book by James Walters, a highly influential British yarn artist, in his 1979 book Crochet Workshop. Another source for my education has been Japanese knit/crochet magazines with full pages of charted garments showing exactly how a particular stitch pattern could be used to create the shape of an armhole or neckline. The rest of my study was done on the hook with many experimental swatches.

What does it mean to shape in pattern?  Crochet stitches can easily be manipulated to form surface designs, and the legibility of these designs is dependent on maintaining the stitches in the same order. If we need our fabric to grow or shrink, stitches must be added or subtracted. The challenge is to do that without distorting the surface design. James (now an email friend) and the Japanese designers taught me a lot about how to approach the task. Designing hundreds of patterns for magazines and my own books helped me gain further knowledge and confidence.

I resolved to do a stitch dictionary that included shaping – something that, to my knowledge, has not been done before — in the hope that it sheds light on crochet’s possibilities and allows many more people to design with crochet. This book shows you the inherent shaping potential of each stitch spelled out, and can help you gain a deeper understanding of how crochet stitches can be maneuvered to make whatever you can imagine.

I’ve learned so much from working on this book and the swatches have yielded countless design ideas right at my fingertips. I encourage you to make some of the swatches for the sheer pleasure of it, and because I firmly believe learning on the hook is the best way to study crochet.

My heartfelt thanks to the folks at Abrams who have given me the opportunity to write this book. Its contents are a record of my crochet studies that I hope will benefit all those who love working with the hook.
