Infinity Scarves

I am showing off two infinity scarves. One is done in a chevron pattern and the other is done in a granny pattern. The Chevron pattern one is my Mobius Ripple Cowl pattern. A co-worker had found my pattern on Ralvery, which inspired me to make another one for me. I did add more stitches to the beginning chain. If you and to do this, make sure you add an amount dividable by 13.

I totally winged  it making the granny square square shawl, I used I Love This Cotton for the granny square cowl and Simply Soft for the Chevron Scarf.

Granny Stocking Ornament

I had a reader ask how to make a granny square stocking. So I am going to show how it is simply done. So make a five sided granny square.
Take a corner and designate it as a toe. Fold the wrong sides together so that the other four corners match up.


You should see the shape of a sock. Sew along the bottom and the side.

Turn right side out.

There you have it, a granny square sock ornament.

Crochet Stocking Hat

Over the past month or so I have been making stocking hats. I have made up a crocheted version using alternating front and back post dc's. 


So here is how I made my hats.

You will need:
Size H hook
One 6-8 ounce skein of worst weight yarn

FPDC = Front Post DC. You are doing a dc around the dc on the previous round, bring the hook around the dc from the front.
BPDC = Back Post DC. You are doing a dc around the dc on the previous round, bring the hook around the dc from the back.


Chain 3, 7 dc in magic ring, or a ring of chain 4. Join with beginning chain 3 (8 DC)
Working in rounds .
Row 1: ch 3,  FPDC around beginning ch 3. *dc in next dc, FPDC around the same dc* repeat around, join with beginning chain 3

Row 2: ch 3, FPDC around next dc *BPDC around next dc, FPDC around next dc* repeat around, join with beginning chain 3

Row 3: ch 3, BPDC around the same dc *FPDC around next dc, dc in the same dc, dc in the next dc, BPDC around the same dc* repeat around ending with FPDC around next dc, dc in the same dc, join with beginning chain 3

Row 4: ch 3, BPDC around the next dc, *FPDC around the next 2 dc, BPDC around the next 2 dc* repeat around ending with FPDC around the next 2 dc, join with beginning chain 3

Row 5: ch 3, BPDC around next dc, *(FPDC around next dc, dc in the same dc) twice, BPDC in the next 2 dc* repeat around ending with (FPDC around next dc, dc in the same dc) twice,  join with beginning chain 3

Row 6: ch 3, BPDC around the next dc, *FPDC around the next 4 dc, BPDC around the next 2 dc* repeat around ending with FPDC around the next 4 dc, join with beginning chain 3

Row 7: ch 3, BPDC around beginning ch 3, dc in the next dc, BPDC around the same dc * FPDC around the next 4 dc, (dc in the next dc, BPDC around the same dc) twice* Repeat ending with FPDC around the next 4 dc, join with beginning chain 3

Row 8: ch 3, BPDC around next 3 dc, * FPDC around the next 4 dc, BPDC around the next 4 dc* repeat around ending with FPDC around the next 4 dc, join with beginning chain 3

Repeat row 8 until you hat measures about 8 inches or longer if you want to fold up and have a brim. Finish off.

Hooded Scarf

 I finished the hooded scarf I made for my daughter. I did not follow a pattern to make this. I totally winged it. The pattern stitch is alternating 2 sc and 2 slip stitch. It did make a really nice texture.

Road Trip

So my husband and I are again at Mesquaki Casino. We to took a bus tour and the long drive means I am able to finish my stocking cap.
So I took the picture at the lobby and the dome was reflecting on the glass table.
So I took another picture of just the table. It will be perfect for the Weekend Reflections meme later on this week.

I also started a hooded scarf at the request of my daughter. I am doing alternating 2sc and 2 slip stitches. I like how the texture looks, but I is a little stiff. I am hoping that it will soften up a little once I wash it.

Crochet Flying Disc

My husband and I were out Christmas shopping this past Saturday, and I had seen indoor crocheted frisbees for sale. I knew right then that I had to make one. Actually, I made two
