Crochet Neckwarmer


Started with a chain of 34 but next time I think I will do less as it seems too BIG (to wide) so maybe around 28.. I wanted to create a scarf for my dad that he didn't have to worry about loosing it just slide right over your head and down your neck...plus less inches to get in the way or could in a zipper of a coat.


As you can see it can nicely fit up around your ear/nose to keep you warm on cold nights.


Or you can easily dress up an outfit or hid a few Love Marks...

Crochet Fingerless Gloves

I was asked by a co-worker if I knew how to make fingerless gloves however I had tried to make a pair over a year ago and ended up with them big SO Big that 3 peoples hand still had room in them so I tried again last night the blue pair is made with 1 ball of blue cotton Peaches and Cream Brand

Here is my hand modeling them boy is it hard to photo them on your own hands!!!!!

So I want to see how much different I needed to edit the pattern if I used RHSS yarn which at Walmart is only $2.28 a ball I figure I can yield over 2 pairs per Skein.....

So what do you think?????


Update: I made these using some baby yarn I used 2 strands to create these :O0 baby Soft

Crochet Purse for DD

After Frog it again I removed a few extra rows on the base piece found the center (of the wrong side) Should have been the RIGHT SIDE ie the INSIDE NOT the outside..

Using the Purple YARN when you find the inside center skipping 3-5 stitch spaces from the sides to keep it from being to close to the sides as those fold up/be stitched in later as you go around with the GRAY YARN. With the purple yarn single crochet down the center then continue creating enough rows I used a Half double crochet going up to create the center pocket divider up as far you want the pocket to be.

As I worked with the gray yarn I grabbed the purple pocket and single crocheted the purple/gray together attaching it together creating a pocket as you work the purse

As you can see now have a bag with an inside pocket as this solid purple ( note next time I would use double tread strand here as well as this flexes too much) I have crocheted using the MC Gray and add CC Purple to mix it up.

Currently I have completed the crochet part of bag only thing left to finish crocheting the strap and add the plastic buckles to keep the bag closed :O)
