Cherry Ice Cream Warming Collar

Best Blog Tips




This is my after-Christmas gift for all of you who love pretty things! A warming collar is a lovely piece that can substitute a scarf in a really nice way. This one is very easy to make, I hope you enjoy it.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all you blessings and good things in the coming New Year!

I used Red Heart Candy Print for this collar. I love the way this yarn turns almost anything you make into a swirl of delicious pink!

Materials-1 skein Red Heart worsted weight variegated yarn Candy Print
Red heart worsted weight Pretty ‘N Pink (about half of a skein or less)
Crochet hook sizes H and G

We will start the scarf on its narrow end and will form the width this way, then we will work upwards.

This is not exactly the same scarflet but a play on colors and stitches to make a nice opposite.
If in your future list of gifts you have two sisters, these two scarflets would be a nice thing to give them. They are a lovely match without an exact "sameness." Often, not even identical twins like to dress alike!


Materials-

Red Heart worsted weight yarn Cherry Red
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Royal
Button of your choice (appropriate size for buttonhole formed by space between 2 tr stitches)
Crochet hook size H
Blunt needle (to weave in ends)
Scissors
Sewing needle
Sewing thread (color of button chosen)

Note- Each ch 3 counts as 1 dc and each ch 4 counts as first tr of row throughout.

Row 4- 1 tr in each dc across. (22 tr) Ch 3, turn.
Row 5- 1 dc in each tr across. (22 dc) Ch 4, turn.
Rows 6 to 36- Alternate 1 dc row and 1 tr row, ending with 1 dc row. (22 sts) Fasten off Cherry Red, weave in tail.
Row 37- Join Royal. Work 1 sc in each of first 9 dc, sc2tog over next 2 dc, 1 sc in each of next 11 dc. (21 sc)
Lace Edge- (Do not work too tightly!)
Row 38- 1 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip 2 sc, *1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip 2 sc, 2 dc in next sc, ch 1, skip 2 sc, rep from * across till you reach
last 2 sc, 1 dc in each of last 2 sc. Ch 3, turn.
Row 39- 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, *1 dc in center ch-1 sp of next shell, ch 1, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, ch 1, rep from * across. Ch 3, turn.
Rows 40 to 49- Rep row 39. Fasten off Royal, weave in tail.
Row 50- Join Royal to opposite edge of Scarflet. Work 1 sc in each of first 9 dc, sc2tog over next 2 dc, 1 sc in each of next 11 dc. (21 sc)
Rows 51 to 61- Rep Lace Edge as done previously.

Weave in all remaining tails and clean up scarflet. Sew button to 11th dc of 3rd row on the right side of scarflet. Fasten off. To button up scarflet, simply

Frog Closure-
Let’s make a bit of rope for the frog. With Pumpkin, ch 2.
Row 1- 1 sc in second ch from hook. Turn. (No ch 1.)
Row 2- Insert hook in little loop that formed on the side of the sc and pull up yarn, you and complete sc. Turn. Continue repeating row 2 for the length of the rope you want to make.
In this case, the rope should measure 14” long. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew with.

Thread blunt needle with leftover tail and, taking one of the ends of it, begin to turn the rope around itself, as if you were going to form the shell of a snail. As you turn, secure each turn onto itself by making small stitches on the loops on the sides. Turn a bit, and inserting the needle into the loops that will meet at the top, where the rope turns and at the bottom, where you just turned, stitch the curl in place. When you have turned the rope three times, secure and fasten off. Weave in tail.

Repeat on the other end, leaving the center unworked for now. When you are ready to sew your frog on, Join some yarn to the back of the frog in a discreet spot, thread blunt needle with the yarn you just joined and sew the center of the frog together, using the loops on the outside edges of both sides of the large loop, until you have a hole that will comfortably fit the button you have chosen. Pin the frog in place and sew it to the capelet. Fasten off, weave in tail.

Thank you, GemmiPopDesigns for the award!
For awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award! I am very honored! I'm sorry to say that I've been given awards before, and have not always been able to figure out what to do to accept them, so, I apologize to the givers, it was that I refused you, it was that I was confused when it came to your instructions. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated!


7 Things about me. . .

1- I love making my toys but have trouble "finding" their face, and sometimes have to wait for weeks before I get one that I like.
2- My favorite color is supposed to be blue, but then if I go to buy yarn I will buy it red or peach, or something else!
3- I have a cat named Lilly who thinks she's a person, and will not snag my yarn, which to me, makes her tops among felines!
4- I love pistachio ice cream, which I do not get to eat much because I'm diabetic.
5- I enjoy sunsets and a humming bird visiting a blooming bush under my window.
6- I have friends that I have kept for years!
7- Roses are my favorite flowers but I also love sweet peas and pansies.

Lacy Necktie Too

Best Blog Tips













While revising and remaking the Lacy Necktie pattern of a year ago that has been so popular, I decided to remake the Lacy Necktie a second time, in another color and with a different edging, just to give you guys a new option for this lovely pattern, and here it is. For a girl who works and who likes a neutral palette for her wardrobe or for any woman who likes neutral or earthy colors that go with just about anything, this is a great and still very feminine choice. Hope you like it!

Materials- Worsted weight yarn (color of your choice. I used Red Heart Coffee.)
Size H crochet hook
Blunt needle to weave in ends and sew necktie strap
