Free Patterns!

Thought I’d just announced that I’ve added a “Free Patterns” section to my blog and I have added two patterns to it!

These two patterns of coasters are created a few months back when I was asked to teach about basic crocheting techniques for an event at my workplace.

These basic techniques includes chaining, slip stitch, single crochet and double crochet.  If you’ve just learn about crocheting and wanted to practice your skill or you just wanted to work on a quick project.  These patterns are perfect for you!

Double-sided fingerless mittens

double-sided-mitten

I’ve had this idea of making double-sided fingerless mittens for a while, but had been having lots of issues as I work out the pattern.  Two of the issues I came across was figuring out what’s the perfect amount of stitches to cast on and how to create the “perfect” thumb hole.  There had been lots of frustration for me when working this out because  I find it hard to fix a mistake with double knitting.  However, after all the struggles, I was able to finish up my test mitten.

One thing that I definitely have to mention was the yarn that I used for this mitten. The pattern it made really interested me and I was amazed!

This is the yarn I used – Caron Simply Soft Camo Yarn, 4 Ounce, Night Camo.

 

And I thought I’d also share this great video I’ve watched about the double sided knitting method.
