Capri Beaded Scarf Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Capri Beaded Scarf Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs


Capri is an Italian Resort in the Bay of Naples in Southern Italy. It is a tourist attraction noted for it's beautiful scenery. 

The perfect Name For my new beaded scarf.


The Capri Beaded Scarf Is a versatile Scarf. 
You can wear it as a scarf, A head wrap/scarf and a Belt.
It looks playful and fun no matter how you wear it. And will  make you feel like you are on a Italian resort vacation, even if you are on a stay-cation in your own back yard.


The Scarf is designed using Medium (4) yarn. It is a Blend of Cotton And Acrylic. The brand is Yarn Bee from Hobby Lobby, called Lil' Dollop. I stitched it up using an H / 5.00 MM crochet hook. And I added a cute fun touch with a beaded trim using mini pony beads.

COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (113) What Are Mill Ends? | Posh Pooch Designs

 COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (113) 
What Are Mill Ends?
With Sara Sach Of Posh Pooh Designs


This Week' Shout Out Goes To

"Summer's Tips And Stitches"
Find Her Youtube Channel At This LINK

Please Head Over to her channel and 
Like, Share and Subscribe. I completely enjoyed  watching
 her videos, and I just know you will, also. 
She is so real and you can see she
 really enjoys doing them for others.

************************************************

I Picked up Some Mill End Bags of yarn at my 
Local Dollar Tree. 14oz. bags For $5.00 Each.


It's can be a  great bargain. 
But What are they?

1. They are NOT 2nds or inferior yarn.
They are the same quality as the regular yarns.

2. They may be underweight or over weight
 balls or skeins. So they are rejected for retail sale.

3. The Dye lot might be slightly off.
So They can not be sent for retail sale.

4. They are what's left on the end of the "mill" and 
Again is rejected For retail sale. and may have an 
extra knot or smudge.

So They discount the yarn, bag it up, 
divided yarn weight and  by ounces
 and we get the fun of buying mill end bags of yarn. 
Usually when you purchase on line you never know 
what you are going to get.

May Stitch Of The Month – Larksfoot Stitch Larksfoot Dish Towel | Posh Pooch Designs

 May Stitch Of The Month – 
Larksfoot Stitch  Larksfoot Dish Towel
 By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs


This Month's Crochet Stitch Pattern is 
The Larksfoot Stitch Crochet Pattern
This Crochet Pattern Demonstration was requested
 by a friend. And I really enjoyed designing the dish towel
 with this pattern. It measure about 10 X 14 inches,
 the perfect size for drying the dishes or counter tops. 


It's really quite simple once you learn the repeat rows.
I designed the dish towel with 3 colors of Premier Home 
Cotton Yarn since I was stitching up a dish towel. 
This stitch pattern also makes lovely blankets, scarves,
 hats, bags and many other projects.
I stitched up the towel with a 5.00 MM / H crochet hook
 for a nice crisp tension to show the pattern details.

Catalina Tie Headband Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Catalina Tie Headband 
Crochet Pattern

By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

The Catalina Tie Headband is a fun headband to wear.
 It's perfect to take along on vacation or just a quick trip
 to the super marker. 


It can be made in any colors of your choosing. 
Ombre, stripes, variegated or solid colors. It is a great
 way to get some of those left over yarns made into 
something stylish and useful.



The Catalina Tie Headband is designed using 
Redheart Stripes / Flamingo, which is a medium (4)Acrylic
 yarn. Any Medium (4) weight yarn will work for this Headband. 
I stitched it up using a I / 5.5 MM crochet hook.
I absolutely love the way the colors looks.
The Pattern will fit a 22- 24 inch head,
 just remember the headband is very stretchy.
