Knotty Knot Boot Cuffs V2

It’s another  boot cuffs pattern again yall!  Since the first pair of Knotty Knot Boot Cuffs were in the making I already had it in my mind to combine the colors.  It’s hard to decide which style I like best so I say I love them both.  Same concept as the first one and I think I changed a row.  Boot cuffs are becoming one of my favorite things to make.  I love the instant gratification of completing a project and they are great stash busters.

Something Quick

Here’s something quick and fast to make for that last minute gift.  It’s a cowl using 3 strands of yarn.  Grab 3 skeins of your favorite worsted weight yarn and a Q hook.  I chose I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.  This yarn is soft and squishy compared to Red Heart Super Saver.

  • I Love This Yarn (3 skeins)
  • Q Hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors

Row 1:  Ch 18 (loosely), dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next ch, dc in each st from hook, turn.

Row 2:  Ch2, dc in each dc from previous row to end, turn.

Row 2-14:  Repeat Row 2 or until desired length

Finish off and with wrong sides together whipstitch short sides and weave ends.

It’s that easy.

I made this with Loops and Thread Urban in Red.  I scored this yarn at Michael’s in the clearance section last summer for a $1.  Oh boy, I love a bargain.

Sorry for the picture quality, it’s been raining here for days.  I hope the sun will come out soon.

Rainbow Twist Infinity Cowl

This is an easy infinity scarf to make, it should take between 2-3 hours to crochet.  Variegated yarn makes this scarf burst with color.  The stitches used are basic and you must know how to foundation double crochet, front and back post double crochet.   Remember the internet is your friend, there are many tutorials and videos on these stitches.  This scarf can be worn around the neck, doubled around the neck and as a hooded scarf.  The choice is up to you.  I’m stuck on the Big Twist Rainbow Classic yarn for the moment and this may be my go to cowl yarn.  Make sure you check my post on Joann’s Big Twist yarn.

The pattern can be found below.

Big Twist

If you have noticed Joann’s yarn section has been looking pretty slim to none during the last 4 weeks.  I was able to pick up many skeins on clearance and yarn that I normally wouldn’t purchase.  Something new must be coming.  Every Saturday I would go back to watch the disappearance of the yarn.

Beyond the shelves were full again and behold a new brand of yarn by Joann’s called Big Twist Collection Value Worsted Yarn.  The regular price $3.19 for 6 ounces, but I was able to get it with a coupon, of course.  In my opinion, the colors were alright, nothing new and exciting.  There were some colors that caught my attention.  I would compare this yarn to the Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn at Michaels.  It was a tad bit softer than Redheart Super Saver Economy.  Big Twist looks like it will hold up during washings and will make a great sturdy blanket.

This is the color palette I chose, black, cream and scarlet.

Cold Weather is Coming

It’s not hardly cold here in Virginia.  It was in the upper 70’s today and it’s still September.  Christmas and Halloween decorations are out already.  Why do they rush the holidays?

During my trolling on social media I’ve come across some cold weather crocheting patterns.  These are free patterns but if you would like for me to make one please send me an email.

Cowl was made with LionBrand Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton yarn.  That’s a mouthful to say.
