Motif of the Month July 2014: Diamond Granny

 

July 2014: Diamond Granny
July 2014: Diamond Granny

This month’s motif of the month was a last minute viewer request.

She had asked for a diamond shaped granny “square”. So I worked up a simple change to a normal granny square to make this shape a true diamond.

I also show a different way to weave in your ends this month.

Using a latch hook (here is the one I use if you’re not sure what a latch hook is) instead of a yarn needle, you can weave in any size yarn fast and easily.

The video will show you how it works.

You can download the pattern and watch the video here.

New Free Pattern ~ Triangle Neckerchief or Head Scarf ~ Your Choice!

This new pattern is a 2fer!

One pattern will get you not only a cute neckerchief, but also a handy head scarf.

Using linked double crochet this easy project will give you a solid, yet thin fabric. Plus it is a single row repeat, so it’s perfect to take on any upcoming trips.

Download the pattern and watch the video tutorial here.

You can also watch a review I did on the yarn used. This is from the Zealana company (the one’s who use brushtail possum.) It’s called Air and it’s really fantastic to work with. Check out the full review right below.

Starting A Two Color Spiral In Double Crochet

I had a viewer request on how to begin a two color spiral. I already have a pattern that has a two color spiral in it, so this was an easy tutorial.

Baby Sensory Tummy Time Mat
Baby Sensory Tummy Time Mat

The Baby Sensory Tummy Time Mat already had a photo tutorial in the pattern for the first round (which is usually the most difficult to make), so I made up a video (see below) for the first three rounds.

If you have your own spiral pattern and the stitches are different, just substitute those stitches for the ones I show and the spiral will work out just the same.

If you are a leftie, here is your video.
