A doily and some snowflakes

They are still wet, half blocked, but couldn’t wait:

I used handmade dyed (by me, before Easter, lol) mercerized cotton and a 2.5 mm hook.

Now patterns:

For snowflakes I used Pinterest and this blog: http://sexycrochet.com/es/2011/03/20/esquemas-de-copos-de-nieve/ . You can choose your favorite snowflake, all are gorgeous.

For the doily I used a free pattern too, which I modified a little to look more appropriate to Christmas; the pattern is from CoatsCrafts.co.uk, you can find it here: http://www.coatscrafts.co.uk/NR/rdonlyres/B7B10681-3952-4C4C-BF36-BC1EE1828BE5/21176/CrochetRoundDoilie.pdf


Something new: a rug

A rug for my dog. He doesn’t look very interested on it… I made it from an old pair of jeans and some scraps. It still needs to be block, but I like it. I used a tutorial posted on my FB, never made such thing before, but I will repeat the experience for sure.

You can find here the photo-tutorial: http://www.olinohobby.com/2013/02/crochet-rug-from-t-shirts-and-yarn.html

5 fingers gloves and a slipper!

This is what I made last week, and the scarf, of course.

These are the gloves. I didn’t have any #pattern and I didn’t write this one, but I found this one, which is a #free pattern, by the way, and looks prety close: http://freevintagecrochet.com/mittens/631-gloves-pattern.html .

If you want more #free patterns for gloves, on the same site: http://freevintagecrochet.com/search/node/gloves .

And I finally finished a slipper:

my slippers crochet slipper slipper crochet slippers

For the slippers: you need a H crochet hook , 50 g worst weight yarn of MC (main color = black), and 2-3 colors scraps.

1. Flower:

R1: ch 3, 9 dc [tr, UK] in the first ch, join with sl st [sc] in the 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3 to form a circle.

R2: Change color: ch 3,  2dc tog [2tr tog] in the same st, ch 1,* cluster of 3 dc {3 dc worked together} [cluster of 3 tr] in the next dc, ch 1*, repeat *_* 9 times, join in the 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3. (10 petals)

R3: Change color: ch 3, 2 dc in the same st [2 tr in the same st], ch 1, *3dc in the next ch from the previous round, ch 1 [3 tr in the next ch from the previous round, ch 1]*; repeat *_* 9 times, join in the 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3.

Fasten off.

2.For sole: You can buy one felted, or whatever you want, or you can make one with a 5 mm crochet hook, and 2-3 strands of yarn . You can use this one , or you can google for another one:) ( it should be symmetrical, that means half circle for the heel too).

3. After you made your sole,

R1: ch 2, ( work in the back loops only) 1 hdc [dc for UK] in each st around, join in the second ch from the beginning ch 2.

R2+3: Repeat R1.

R4: change color and repeat R1.

R5: change color ch 2, and work 1 hdc [dc]  in the third loop of each st (not in the front loop, neither in the back loop; behind the back loop it is a third loop, there:D), join.

Changing colors repeat R1 twice. Fasten off.

In the front join your flower working 1 sc in the slipper, ch 1, 1 sc in the flower, 1 sc in the second st from the slipper (skip 1), ch 1, 1 sc in the second st from the flower [hdc, ch 1], and so on.

For embellishment: for the front part 1 row of dc [tr] in the flower, with MC (main color), and around crab stitch (or reverse sc) with a color at your choice.
