The Sue Renee Lapghan, named after my sister, is easily made using the Linen Stitch & Vanna’s Choice Yarn in Linen & Cranberry.  I love how Vanna’s Choice works up with this stitch…beautiful!

If you want to make your lapghan wider & taller, make your starting chain longer (even number of chains).  To make it taller, add equal amount of extra rows between rows 36 – 56 & 77 – 97.  You will want to end your lapghan on an even number row so that your border is worked on the right side.

Crochet-A-Long Afghan

 

Inspired Wren – Crochet-A-Long

I made this afghan a few years ago from the Inspired Wren website.  We had just remodeled our living room at the time & I wanted to make an afghan that would match our new colors.

I chose this pattern because the swatches use different patterns & textures, then it is seamed together at the end.  If you follow her chart with color schemes, you will use 4 different color #4 weight yarns.  I used Caron Simply Soft Yarn in Soft Blue, Bone, Chocolate & Light Country Blue.

I played around with my colors & arranged them how I wanted them.  Check out the tutorial!!

 

Fairy Shell Stitch (Modified Version)

Maria Infinity Scarf Using My Modified Version of the Fairy Shell Stitch

If you are looking for a beautiful crochet stitch, the Fairy Shell Stitch is gorgeous!  I had an order for a scarf (pattern for the above picture coming soon!) & my customer had special requests regarding her order….so I took the opportunity to create a new pattern & to modify a gorgeous stitch!

The Fairy Shell Stitch would be considered an Intermediate Level crochet stitch. It uses the Shell Stitch (see below) which I also modified.    Get your yarn & crochet hook & let’s begin!

For the Modified Fairy Shell Stitch, your beginning chain count will need to be divisible by 6.  Add 4 for the beginning chain.  For example:  We are going to do a practice swatch.  You will chain 64.  (6 x 10 = 60 + 4).

The best way to remember the stitch pattern beginning in Row 4:

  • [SC, CH 2, SC] in the CH 1 SP of Shell ST from previous row.
  • Shell ST [2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC] in CH 2 SP of [SC, CH 2, SC] from previous row.
  • Odd number rows = 1 DC beginning of row
  • Even number rows = 2 DC beginning of row

SPECIAL STITCHES:

  • Shell Stitch – In the same stitch [2 DC, CH 1, 2DC]

Ch 64.

Row 1: CH 2.  SK 3 SC.  SC in 4th ST.  *SK 2 ST.  Shell ST (see NOTES) in next ST.  SK 2 ST.  [SC, CH 2, SC] in next ST.*  Repeat from * to * across to last 6 ST.  SK 2 ST.  Shell in next ST.   SK 2 ST.    [SC, CH 1, HDC] in last ST.  Turn.

Row 2:  CH 2.   2 DC in 1st ST.  *[SC, CH 2, SC] in CH 1 SP of Shell ST from previous row.  Shell in CH 2 SP.*  Repeat from * to * across to last CH 1 SP. [SC, CH 2, SC] in CH 1 SP.  [SC, CH 1, HDC] in last ST.  Turn.

Row 3: CH 2.   DC in 1st  ST.   *Shell ST in [SC, CH 2, SC] from previous row.  [SC, CH 2, SC] in Shell ST from previous row.*   Repeat from * to * across to last CH 1 SP.  Shell ST in last CH 2 SP.    [SC, CH 1, HDC] in last ST.  Turn.

Rows 4 – 10 :  Repeat Rows 3-4.

 

 

Linen Stitch

Sue Renee Lapghan using the Linen Stitch

I finished my lapghan crochet pattern using the Linen Stitch & am excited to get it posted!  There are just a few edits to make yet & I will have it ready for everyone.  The Linen Stitch is an easy crochet stitch that works into a beautiful crochet project.  It only uses single crochets & chain stitches.  That’s it!  So…without further ado…here is how you do the Linen Stitch (as shown in the above picture of the lapghan I made).

  1.  Chain an even number of stitches.
  2.  Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook.  CH 1.  [Skip next chain.  Single crochet in next chain.  CH 1].  Repeat from [  ] across.  Single crochet in last chain.  Turn.
  3. Chain 1.  Single crochet in chain space from previous row.  Chain 1.  [Skip next stitch.  Single crochet in next chain space from previous row.  Chain 1].  Repeat from [ ] across.  Turn.

That’s all there is to it!  Easy does it!

I kept envisioning a crochet pattern for a cowl or scarf that broke the rule of not twisting your chain or stitches when joining in the round.  I love how the Hannah Infinity Cowl turned out and hope you do too!
