Crochet Tutorial: Desert Shell Granny Square

I created this Desert Shell Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create a look that reminds me of the heat!! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Lace Collar Necklace

In keeping with the accessories I have been making this week, I created this vintage inspired crochet lace collar. Add a bit of dimension and flair to a plain sweater or top with this elegant scalloped design that is reminiscent of days gone by, yet it is brought to life in contemporary fashion. I paired it with a jewel brooch for an extra vintage touch because that’s how I roll! Have fun with it!

Lace collars have a long history in fashion. I always enjoy finding something vintage and putting a new modern spin on it, yet keeping the historic essence of the piece.

Crochet Tutorial: Leaf and Flower Lariat

In an earlier post, I had mentioned that Nate bought me yarn this past Christmas. Some may think, “Well that is a no brainer, she crochets, she loves yarn. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!” Right? But to that, I say this: I thought about this man going through yarn types and brands trying to choose the right ones, the best fibers, deciding on variety without a clue as to what he’s doing, except he was doing it because he loves me. It made my heart skip. The picture of this in my mind was incredibly endearing.

Today’s leaf and floral neck lariat necklace is inspired by some of those skeins of yarn and the love behind them. Leaves are symbolic of life and the red flower symbolizes love. So, it is appropriate that it all comes together in this great creative piece. He truly has woven his way right into my heart giving it life. What better way to show that love than through my work?!

Lariat
You can make this as a belt, as a bunting, garland. You can customize this piece to your own desire. Make it longer, make it shorter, make it in different colors! The possibilities are endless!

Lariat

Crochet Tutorial: Football Headband

Crochet Tutorial: Football Headband

Growing up in the Green Bay area, Wisconsin, USA one cannot help but be a Green Bay Packers fan. They say we bleed green! Well this girl is no exception! With the NFL playoffs right around the corner, I designed this football headband.
Football Headband
Although this is in the colors of my favorite team-Green and Gold, this can be modified to your team colors either in Pro sports, college sports, or high school/middle school sports. This can also just be made into a seasonal headband with no team involvement if you are not the competitive type! Unlike me who wants the Pack to GO ALL THE WAY! I love me some football!

Football Headband
What’s really nice about this headband is that although I made it in the football format, by simply changing up the colors, you can make it in a variety of ways for other sports. Orange and black can be for basketball, white and black can be for soccer, red and white could be for baseball, solid black for hockey, simply by changing the striping and adding a few other embellishments. You can also make this a solid headband and just add a flower that will be cute for anybody on any occasion. Again, creativity knows no bounds!! Have fun with this and be sure to share your finished work on Facebook!!

Crochet Tutorial: Turtleneck Fringe Cowl

Fashion has always been a passion for me. I am often inspired by different designs, colors, and styles. I’m always trying to think outside the box and create pieces that are fashion-forward. This particular piece is no exception. The minute I saw the yarn, I knew it had to be made into something very special. Somehow this particular piece came to mind. This didn’t just come from nowhere, there’s a special story behind the making of this cowl….

Turtleneck Fringe Cowl
Over the holiday season, Nate asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I jokingly said, “If you buy me yarn, I will love you forever!” (my love isn’t contingent on whether he buys me yarn, don’t worry. Haha!!)

On Christmas day, he gave me a gift bag with wrapped gifts inside. I was giddy with excitement because I picked up one package thinking it was yarn, and I squealed out, “I love you forever!!” I tore at it to find a stuffed penguin that looked like a skein of yarn, and the joke was on me! My face must have registered every emotion when I was caught in his prank!

PenguinDoesn’t it look like it could be a skein of yarn??

Turtleneck Fringe Cowl
But, further into my package were skeins and skeins of yarn! He gave me two engraved crochet hooks as well. All these gifts had to be put to some amazing use. This gift inspired me so much! I made this crochet turtleneck fringe cowl to add to my Downtown Collection fashion line.

For anyone looking for something different during the cold weather, this design is for you. A special note to my sweetheart, Nate: I will love you no matter what, but your support and sharing anything yarn related with me is a one way ticket to having my heart forever! Thank you for the inspiration! ♥
