I made another V Stitch bag using my refined pattern. I made it for one of my crochet classes, so that I could show my students how to make a flat circle, how to make increase stitches, and how to make simple bag handles. They learned other things along the way as well. I used Cascade yarns Pacific Chuncky, 2.5 skeins of it, and I size J hook.
I made this granny square style orange kerchief using Plymouth yarn Dreambaby DK yarn. I made it a little to large. Next time I'll make 16 rows instead of 18. I really like this yarn. It lays really nicely and feels very soft. It is considered a good yarn for baby items.
During one of my classes the ladies want to learn how to make a flower. This is a pattern that the store that I teach at had. Its a strange pattern, and I'm not fond of the flower. This week I'll be teaching them how to make one of my favorite flower patterns. I used kool aid dyed Fisherman's Wool by Lion Brand for this flower.
For one of my classes I wanted to show the ladies how to make a bobble stitch, so we worked on this bobbled Christmas tree pattern. Some of the ladies finished their trees, and one lady even made a pillow out of her 2 trees. I'm currently making another one that I designed. It will be a pillow for the store that I work at.
Here are the candy corn amigurumi that I made earlier this month. The smaller one was made using an E hook and Plymouth yarn Dreambaby DK yarn, and the other one was made using an F hook and Caron's Simply Soft yarn. Here is the free pattern for it. I used puff paint for the faces.
Here is another pattern that I like to teach to my crochet students, the granny square. I used the same Plymouth yarn Dreambaby DK yarn as I used for the candy corn amigurumi. I started making another one using the white yarn last week. I think I'll make a blanket out of a single large granny square.
