Huntress Cowl - size L

Isn't this Cowl just simply lovely and pretty?  I have been weeks wanting to make one and tonight was the night...yay, for me!!!  I know I won't be wearing it until the fall but it's never too early to make anything, in my opinion.  When inspiration strikes, I crochet - no matter what season it may be for.

This Huntress Cowl worked up rather quickly.  And, it used less than 2 skeins of Lion Brand's Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.  This was made in "Starlight" (since I had it on hand) using a 11.5 mm hook (P).  I made this using SC (single crochet) and DC (double crochet) stitches working in the BLO (back loops only) to create the ridges.

I started with a Chain 30 plus 1.  This made a size Large.  If you want a smaller Cowl, then decrease the starting Chain -- just make sure the number of Chains is divisible by 3 and then add a plus 1 Chain to that number.  

I'm really inspired with several variation ideas with this.  It's funny how the mind will just start racing with ideas....






Happy Crocheting...

Curtain Valence....

The last couple days has been busy here with commissioned crochet projects, the grand babies and church stuff.  One priority this week:  I have to get the goodie bags made up to take over to the cancer center to donate to patients undergoing chemo from our church...I've had the stuff in bags sitting near my bed for a few days now.

Have you ever felt so over-extended that you don't have enough time to do everything that needs to be done?  That's how I feel sometimes, but the hubby recently preached in one of his sermons about everyone having the same amount of time in a day and it's all about prioritizing and organizing.

I would appreciate some prayers....always welcomed, needed and appreciated!!!

Here's a look at a pair of curtain valences I just finished up for a lady in burgundy and hunter green.  I had to use my yardstick (as a curtain rod) since all the windows in my house have plantation shutters and I don't have curtains, except in my dining room and there's no way I'm tackling taking those down...lol!!!

I made these 49" long and 12" wide from the button tab to the bottom.

I used a 5.5mm hook and #4 worsted weight yarn:  the hunter green is Red Heart Super Saver and the burgundy is Hobby Lobby's, "I Love This Yarn."


I have the pattern written down on paper and may eventually edit this post to include it.  If you're interested in the pattern, please comment or shoot me an email.  

Happy Crocheting....

Newborn Dress Set - Dress, Hat & Diaper Cover....

I was asked to make an outfit for a newborn baby girl that is due to arrive in July.  I decided to make the outfit size 0 - 3 months so the parents may get a little more wear out of it.

I'm really happy wth the end result.






Happy Crocheting....




Messy Bun - Piggy Style....

I woke up way too early this morning.  Lol.  Still recovering from my slip and fall 2 days ago in the pouring rain.  I had parked the truck in the driveway and when I entered our garage it happened so quickly.  I slipped and landed flat on my tailbone -- and it hurt....I'm doing okay but it sure dampened my day since I was coming home from getting a massage to loosen up and rid myself of too many knots in my back.  So, I'm a day or so behind on several crochet projects I'm working on.

I did want to share this new Messy Bun Hat with you that I was commissioned to make.  This lady saw my Woodland Hats and asked if I could make one in a pig for her.  Of course, I can.  Isn't that the answer all crocheters seem to give!!!! Lol.

I will try to update this post later today with the pattern. 

Free Pattern is below.  If you give it a go, please comment on here, send a pic or post on instagram, Ravelry or pinterest. (My username on all is:  rilla2u)  I would love to see your work!!!!

Caribbean Summer Top...

I found this gorgeous cotton yarn at Hobby Lobby the other day and just knew I had to make something summery with it.  The brand is Crafter's Secret and was on sale...yay for me!!!  $1.87 per skein.  So, this cute top was very economically friendly.  It comes in 120 yards per skein.  I used Caribbean and Dark Teal.

Caribbean Summer Top

Size:  Women's Large
Difficulty Level:  Easy

Materials:
--5.0mm hook
--Crafter's Secret 100% cotton yarn (4 skeins Caribbean -- I didn't use all of the 4th skein; 1 skein Dark Teal)
--(5) 1/2 buttons in coordinating color
--tapestry needle for weaving

Abbreviations:
Ch: chain
Sl st: slip stitch
St: stitch
Sc: single crochet
HDC: half double crochet
Sk st: skip stitch
FO: fasten off

Note:  My chest measurement (around my breasts) is 42".  If you are bigger breasted, then you would want to adjust the hook size up a size.

Directions:
1.  With Caribbean yarn, ch120.  Into the 2nd ch from the hook, Sc and HDC, then sk st.  *Sc and HDC in next st, sk st.* Repeat across until the last st.  Only Sc in last st.  Ch1 and turn.  (119 total stitches)
--I wrapped the first row around my back/breasts to check sizing; the ends were approximately 2" short of touching which was fine since I was adding bands on each end in secondary color for the buttons and buttonholes--
2-30.  Repeat row 1.  At the end of Row 30, FO Caribbean yarn.  (119)

Button Bands:
Left side (this is the band I attached the buttons on):
1.  Join Dark Teal yarn in the corner and Ch1.  You will be working on the short ends.  1 Sc st evenly down the side.  There's 30 rows; so you should have 30 stitches.  Ch1 and turn.  (30)
2-6.  1 sc in each st across.  Ch1 and turn.  At the end of Row 6, FO and weave ends.  (30)

Right side (this is the band with the buttonholes):
1.  Join Dark Teal yarn in the corner on the opposite short end and Ch1.  1 Sc st evenly down the side.    You should have 30 sc stitches.  Ch1 and turn.  (30)
2-3.  1 sc in each st across.  Ch1 and turn.  (30)
4.  1 sc in the first 2 st, skip 2, ch2, *1 sc in next 4 st, skip 2, ch2,* repeat from * to * across.  1 sc in each of the last 2 stitches.  (You will have made 5 buttonholes) 
5.  1 sc in each st across with 2 sc into the buttonholes made.  Ch1 and turn.  (30)
6.  1 sc in each st across.  FO.  Weave ends.  

Important Step
Attach Buttons:  
At this point, attach buttons to the left side.  Make sure button placement aligns with the buttonholes. Once buttons are attached, button up each one.  We will now be working in the round....

1.  With Dark Teal yarn, join into any st of Row 30.  I joined mine in the first st of Row 30 (after the button band).  You will work 1 sc into each st around.  When you come to the first button band, make sure it is aligned on top of the second button band and continue to work your sc stitches (on button band, you are working thru both layers...).  Sl st to first st to join and Ch1. 
2-4.  1 sc in each st around.  Sl st to first st to join and Ch1.  
5.  This is an increase round.  2 Sc in first st, 1 Sc in the next 10 st.  Repeat around.  1 sc in any remaining stitches.
Stitch markers for straps 

Mesh Rounds:
1.  Ch1 and sc in same st.  *Ch5, skip 3, sc in next st,* repeat this pattern around.  Sl st to first sc st and Ch1.  
2-5.  Repeat pattern around:  Sc in same st as Ch1, then *Ch5, skip 3, sc in next st,* repeat this pattern around.  Sl st to first sc st and Ch1.  

Straps (make 2):
1.  With Dark Teal, I joined yarn on Row 1, 5 cluster stitches (Sc/HDC) over from each side of the button band, excluding the button band stitches (so count over 5 cluster stitches that was done in the Caribbean  yarn).  Work 5 sc stitches between cluster 5 and cluster 7 stitches.  Ch1 and turn.  (5)
2-55.  1 sc in each st across.  Ch1 and turn.  (5)

To attach Row 55 to the backside, I made sure my top was evenly aligned and then I sc the last row of the strap onto the backside.  If you don't want to sc the strap to the backside, then you can FO, leaving a long tail to whipstitch to the top row on the backside.  

Repeat for second strap.  

That's it!!!  If any part is confusing, please drop me an email or comment and I will try to help you and better explain any part of the pattern.
Happy Crocheting!!!

Boobies for Breast Cancer....

I had the privilege to crochet a set of boobs for a childhood friend of mine who had been diagnosed with breast cancer, underwent a double mastectomy and chemotherapy.  For me, I found it to be an honor to, in some small way, contribute something as she travels this scary journey that so many women face today.
                                          Size "D" Boobs

Eyes:  I placed the eyes on each side of the nose at rows 11-12.

Wolf:
The Wolf Hat is made exactly the same as the Fox Hat -- only difference is the yarn color; colors used were light grey, white and black.  (see pics if you need help)

Owl:
The Owl Hat, itself, is made exactly the same as the Fox Hat.  The only difference is in the yarn I used.  I used "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby in Brown Tweed as main color; light beige in contrast color; and a small amount of bright yellow, peacock, white and black.

Assembly:
I centered the eyes and placed the nose underneath the center of the eyes.  (see pic)

And, that's it!!!!  3 hats made from 1 pattern.  Plus, so many more hats that can be made using the same pattern.  On 2 of the hats, I used a ponytail holder and on the third one, I made a ch 30 and sl st into first ch to form ring.  All 3 hats fit the same.
