Crocheted Clover Amour Hook Case

I have been wanting to make a case for my hooks for a while because I didn’t quite like the plastic version I purchased. It was too tight and only 8 of my hooks fit in it. This project doesn’t eat up much yarn, in fact less than a ball is sufficient. I use aran size yarn but you can use any size of yarns just follow the length according to the instruction.
 

This pattern is available as PDF and free from my Raverly Store. Just click this link to download.

Terms: American
Difficulty Level: Easy
Yarn: 60 gr/112 yards of any Aran size, small fabric for lining.
Hook: G/4 mm
Gauge: 18 sc to 4 inches/10 cm, 19 rows of sc to 4 inches/10 cm
Finished Size: 7 x 9 inches when flap is opened
Pattern for the flower and leaves are not included. Please use any pattern of your choice for the appliques.
Stitches Used:
Yo = yarn over
Ch = chain
Sc = single crochet
Dc = double crochet
Sl st = slip stitch
Fpst = front post slip stitch
Special stitches:
Shell: 5 dc into next st
The flower was based on this Youtube tutorial
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05m6zj0PgRg
Make enough length of chain stitches and sew it to the middle part of the purse. Attach tassels to both ends. Instruction on how to make the tassels is in the PDF.

 

Using a yarn needle stitch between the hooks for a good grip. This is how the purse look like from the back.

I love my personalized crochet hook case very much. You can embellish yours with any ornaments you like including beads. I would love to see what you make.

Joining Blocks using Raised Zipper Stitch Method

I accidentally found this new stitch while working on my crochet ball projects and I was quite happy with the way my project turned out after using it. The first ball project I used needle and thread but I wasn’t very happy as it looks a bit weak although technically it is quite strong as I double both the thread and the stitches was done twice. Here is the first ball I made…

… and here is the second ball.

Which one do you like better?

I have created a video tutorial on how to do the stitch if you would like to learn.   I am not happy with the quality of the video, it’s blurry although on my iPhone it was ok and it was just cut off near the finish line. Obviously I need o learn more about videography and uploading Youtube videos. That being said, I hope you still get the idea how to join this stitch. The pattern for the pentagon and the ball is free till September 26, 2014 from  Ravelry. Included in the pattern is the chart and step-by-step pictures to guide you in making the pentagon and to stitch them together to form a pretty crochet ball.
If you have been crocheting for a while chance is you might not need to buy new yarns for this project. 25 meters in total is approximately what you need to make one pentagon and you only need to make 12 of them.


If you like what you see and made something from my free pattern, all I ask is that you credit me by mentioning my name and my blog and provide the link to my blog. Please DO NOT re upload my files by any means to another blog or website. All my photographs are copyrighted. Thank you.

Strawberry Stitch Tutorial

The inspiration came from Bloggang Strawberry tunisian crochet when the blogger posted her pic and pattern diagram in Thai to an FB group. Everybody wanted to make it  but nobody knew how to read Thai. I didn’t know either, and neither do I know Tunisian crochet so, I came up with traditional Tapestry Crochet instead, and loo, the result is stunning, with the perfect choice of color! Looks so suave!

I have been neglecting my 5DM2 for so long because of my illness last year. Nearly a year I did not touch it and when I opened the camera bag the other day I was just grateful I did it then and not later because the fungus has already started to grow on the camera strap. I went testing it and fiuwhh it is still functioning as the last time I used it. Here is one of the pictures I recently took: a crochet purse I just made using the strawberry crochet stitches. I use double strands size 8 cotton for the white, and similar size of rayon for the green and fuchsia (because I don’t have the cotton in green and fuchsia color), and make a slip stitch cord to tighten the purse. 
Alhamdulillah, yay, I was featured in Crochetville Facebook Page.
