One Skein Skinny Scarf

This will be a quick post on how to make a One Skein Skinny Scarf.  I had one skein of RedHeart Boutique Unforgettable yarn that I wanted to get rid off.  This is not my favorite yarn to use because it rips quickly and it’s not very forgiving when you have to rip apart.  My main complaint is finding knots in the skein but other than that it’s a very soft yarn to use and I love the gradual color changes.

I made this scarf in about two hours and used every bit of this yarn.

Twisted Textured Pillow

The Twisted Textured Pillow was inspired from the Statue of Liberty Pillow by RedHeart.  I thought it would be fun to design and make my own.  I love bright colors and I thought the orange and green would be nice for the summer.  Scroll on down for the pattern.

Twisted Textured Pillow

Supplies:  Big Twist Value Yarn –  6 0z/170gm

Colors:  Pumpkin and Lime

Crochet Hook: H(5mm)

16 X 16 Pillow Form

Tapestry Needle

Scissors

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

fpdc – front post double crochet

Notes:

Ch 3 counts as stitch.

Make sure your foundation chain is wide enough for your pillow by adding  or subtracting stitches.

Before you find your rhythm crochet a couple of rows and measure it against your pillow form just in case you need to make some adjustments.  Be sure to allow for the fluff (height) of your pillow.  In this example the square measured 16” and I was lucky that it stretched a bit.

Stitch count given once unless it changes.

Gauge:  4 X 4 = 15dc X 8 rows

I wouldn’t worry about the gauge so much

Instructions:

Multiples of 2 + 3

Make 2  (Should measure approximately 16 ½ X 16 ½)

Row 1:  (RS)  Ch 57, skip 3 chs (counts as st), dc in next st, dc in each ch to end, turn. (55)

Row 2:  (WS) Ch1, sc in same st, sc in next st to end, turn.

Row 3:  Ch3, *fpdc around dc one row below, dc in next st; repeat from * to end, turn.

Row 4:  Ch1, sc in same st, sc in next st to end, turn.

Row 5:  Ch3, *dc in next st, fpdc around dc one row below; repeat from * to last 2 sts, dc in last 2 sts, turn.

Row 6-53:  Repeat rows 2-5 12 times and end at row 5.

Finish off and weave ends.

With right sides together seam/whipstitch 3 sides.

*I single crocheted mine around*

Flip outside in and insert pillow form and seam/whipstitch last side.

Fluff and you are ready to show off your new Twisted Textured Pillow.

Crochet Coffee Cup Coasters

How many times has someone placed a glass on your table and it left a ring or liquid ruining your tabletop?  Happens all the time in my house and I’m guilty of it also.  Hot weather equals more drinking.  To solve that problem why don’t you crochet a few coasters and leave them laying around.  Maybe if it is seen it will be used and you won’t have to yell

Since I love drinking coffee I thought it would be cute to make coffee cup coasters.  Again, Pinterest is your friend.  Divine Debris designed Cocoa Mug Coaster which can be found on Ravelry and on her blog.  The directions were easy to understand.  It was very simple to make with little cotton yarn used.  You should be able to make a set of four with a skein of cotton yarn.
