COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (26) Let's Talk About Velvet Yarns | Posh Pooch Designs

COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (26) Let's Talk About Velvet Yarns
By Sara Sach of   Posh Pooch Designs 


Velvet Yarns
Working with velvet yarns can be a little tricky to
 work with, but the time spent is well worth the results.

Here Are  Few Hints To Make It Easier.

1. Choose a larger project.  
Do not try to make little intricate designs.
Most of the color variegation can not be seen 
with a small project. I suggest scarves, throws, 
blankets, cowls and pillows.


2. Choose a project with very little detail. 
Most intricate detail is lost because of the 
fuzziness of the yarn.


3. Crochet loosely - It is better to be too lose then 
too tight with this type of yarn. It is hard to find the
stitches if you crochet too tightly, and just as hard
 to work with if you stitch tightly. 
So relax and loosen up a bit.


4. Don't let the yarn frustrate you. 
Make a practice swatch, and study how to find your
stitches, and where to place your hook.

If you are struggling with it, set it down
and come back later.

Some really great things about Velvet Yarns_

It has a beautiful feel and makes very luxurious items.

It has great drape and flows nicely for a scarf or shawl.

Once it is crocheted or knitted it becomes more stretchy.

The colors a rich and beautiful.

Chunky Granny Bag Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Chunky Granny Bag Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs


I have gotten many requests for a more 
sturdier Shopping bag, lately.
I came up with a really easy and sturdy bag, 
that can hold up to heavier items.

The Bag can be made from a Bulky (5 or 6) yarn
 or made holding 2 strands of Med (4) together. 
It can be made from Cotton, Cotton bland or Acrylic yarns.
 It's really your preference and what you have in your
 yarn stash.


One is made using Chunky Caron Cakes and 
One us made using Yarn Bee Cotton XXL

Skill: Easy

Materials:
Crochet Hook - N / 9.00MM
Yarn – Bulky (5) Cotton yarn (10. 5 oz. total)
            I used Yarn Bee Cotton XXL (Butter Cream, Celadon,  Lilac Hint)
            You may also use 2 strands held together of a Cotton (4)
Yarn Needle with a large eye
Large Button of Choice - 1.5 to 2 inches

Stitches:
Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (slst)
Single Crochet (sc)
Double crochet (dc)
Space (sp)
Stitch (st)

Size: 13 inches tall and 24 inches around, not counting the handle.

Notes:
Ch1 Does not Count as a sc.
Ch3 Counts as a dc
Rounds are joined to the ch 3 with a slst
When Changing colors, Ch3 After the Color Change
Color changes at R: 6 and R: 11

R: 1 – Ch 29, 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook,
1 sc in each ch across,

Turn Working down the opposite side of the Chain,
1 sc in each ch across, join to the 1st sc, ch 3
(28 + 28 = 56 sc)

R: 2 – 1 dc in the next sc,
*Ch 1, Sk the next sc, 1 dc in the next 2 dc*
Repeat From * to * around, join,
Slst to the 1st ch 1 sp, ch 3

Slst to the 1st ch 1 sp, ch 3
(19 sets of 2 dc, 18 ch1)

R: 4 – R: 13 – Repeat R: 3

You will notice that the joins will move father round the bag for each row.
Don’t worry, it’s supposed to do that.

Add More rows if a longer bag is needed.

R: 14 – 1 dc in each dc and ch1 sp around, join, ch 1
(56 dc)

R: 15 – 1 sc in each sc around, join, tie off weave in your ends.
(56 sc)

 tie off weave in your ends.

Handle:
With 2 strands of your yarn, join yarn to one side of the top of the bag, 
making sure it is centered, ch 30, 
attach handle on the other side of the bag, with a slst,
slst in the next st, turn, ch1 and  sc back across the ch,
Join to the sc next to the beginning slst, tie off.
Weave in all your ends securely.

Button Loop - Cut a 10 inch piece of yarn, center and slide through the top
 of the bag to form a loop, make sure to tie to the inside of the bag, trim off extra yarn.
Line up button on the front of the bag and sew in place with matching yarn.

It's a perfect for shopping, going to the beach or pool, 
going to the library,

We talked about Scarf lengths last week, 
but about infinity scarves and cowls?

The Cowl / Circle Scarf - Should be about 18 inches around, and about 24 inches if you want to wear it as a Hood / Snood.
It is a short scarf joined into a circle.

The Infinity Scarf/ Mobius Scarf 
 The scarf is the same length around as a regular scarf,
Only it is twisted and joined.
Click This Link for the Scarf Measurement  Chart - LINK



The Terms Cowl and Infinity Scarf have been used interchangeably. 
They both refer to a scarf that is joined.
The cowl usually means that the scarf is joined, by not twisted.
 An Infinity or Mobius Scarf has a
 twist to look similar to the infinity symbol.
