Crochet Tutorial: Chain-Link Tunic

Crochet Tutorial: Chain-Link Tunic

Part of Nate’s Halloween costume includes a mesh like vest under Link’s Tunic. As I was creating it, I thought to myself how nice this would be worn on it’s own! You can wear it as the costume piece it was intended for, a vest over a cute top, or as a swimsuit cover-up! This turned out to be better than I expected with more versatility than I could imagine! An easy pattern that is adaptable to all sizes!

Crochet Tutorial: Diamond Block Granny Square

I created this Diamond Block Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting design! 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.
