Bullion’s in Bloom

This site contains affiliate links and I may be compensated for items purchased…..which means more FREE patterns for you!

Here is my second 12′ square.  This one did not come near as easily as the first one did! The biggest problem was trying to figure out which stitches I wanted to use.  After several attempts at making a flower that was not turning out anywhere close to what I was picturing in my head; I decided it was time to go in a completely new direction.

Now something you may not know about me is I like to push myself; so I figured why not learn a new stitch!? So after searching around a bit I came across the Bullion Stitch.  This stitch is a beautiful, but apparently it is a bit of a challenge to master; and I now was down to 3 days to master this stitch and design a square using it.  Can we say ‘procrastinate much’?  But, that’s okay; I love the rush as a deadline quickly approaches.

Don’t forget to Favorite this design and add it to your Library in Raverly!

Chevron Belt

Chevron Belt - KatiDCreationsI have recently learned how to do a Chevron Stitch!  and one of the first ideas that came to mind was to do a belt!  Now, this belt seemed to design itself.  All I thought was belt, and my very vivid mind immediately pictured a wide belt that would be worn high on the waist, it would be slightly stiff and would button close with little buttons.

I love this belt I think it looks so crisp and clean!  The buttons are great and allows you to easily wear the belt high or low on your waist, or even better… share it among girlfriends!

Aunt Lydia’s size 10 thread – Working with 2 strands
3.5mm hook
Buttons of choice

Chevron Belt - KatiDCreationsChevron Belt Pattern

CH 17

1. DC in 3rd CH from hook (skipped CH’s and first DC count as dc2tog), DC in next 5 CH’s, 2DC in next stitch, CH2, 2DC in next stitch, DC in next 5, DC2tog.

2. CH2, Turn, DC2tog, DC in next 6 stitches, (DC, CH2 DC) in CH2 space, DC in next 6 stitches, DC2tog.

Repeat row 2 until desired length is reached.  (You will want the belt to overlap a bit so you can button it together).

Edging – Working with Color of Choice, determine which side you want to be right side

With right side facing, Join in on the edge of any DC and evenly SC along the edge toward the base chain.  Work 2SC in corner of base chain, 1SC in each CH across, 2SC in next corner of base chain.  Evenly work SC along other edge towards point of belt.  Work 1SC in the top of each DC, work 3SC in CH2 space, continue working 1SC in the top of each DC.  Evenly SC along original edge until you can Join with Invisible Join – Tutorial found HERE

Attaching Buttons – I highly suggest taking your belt with you when you pick out your buttons to make sure they fit through the CH2 spaces!

Materials:
Buttons of choice
Matching sewing thread
Sewing needle

I have 4 buttons that are stitched to the CH2 on the right side of the belt that is worn closest to the body.  I have 1 small black flat button that is stitched to the wrong side of the point of the belt.  This single black button helps the point to lay flat regardless of if there is a button at the point.  Making it possible for larger and smaller framed ladies to wear this adorable belt.

Crochet Love Triangle Shawl – Pattern Review

This site contains affiliate links, I may be compensated if you make a purchase which means more free patterns for you!

I first saw this beautiful design in Hookers Anonymous  and noticed that a very talented designer was looking for a few crocheters to test her video tutorial for this stunning piece.
Love Triangle Shawl
So naturally I was super excited when the designer, Dearest Debi, asked if I still was interested.
Heart Love Triangle
This video is amazing, and so easy to follow.  This was actually my first time working a crochet pattern from a video and Dearest Debi made it so easy (and may have spoiled me)!  Debi speaks very clearly and is easily understood and is careful not to crochet so quickly that you cant follow her stitch placement.  She also provides a graph if you prefer to work patterns that way.
Love Triangle Shawl

You can view this beautiful pattern Crochet Love Triangle Shawl by Dearest Debi Here!

Materials I used:
Red Heart Unforgettable – Just over 1 skein
5.5mm Hook
Straight Pins

Gauge: Not really that important but if your curious
1Heart – 2 x 2 1/2 inches

Blocking:
I used lots of straight pins for this! and put 2 pins in almost every heart.  This way I made sure that they dried in the correct Heart shape

I did a total of 14 hearts for the first row which gave me a finished size approximately of 57×30 once it was fully stretched and blocked.  It was only 47wide prior to blocking.

If you only have 1skein to work with then I would recommend only doing 12 for your starting row and you should be able to finish the project with a bit of yarn left over.  Would make your shawl approximately 40 inches wide, prior to blocking.

Unforgettable Broomstick Lace Shawl

This was my first time working with Red Hearts Unforgettable yarn, and it will not be my last!  It is so soft, beautiful and I L O V E the way the variegated yarn so slowly changes colors!  There is such a loose twist in the yarn that it almost has an ‘eye lash’ look.  I love the way the finished product looks and cant wait to start my next using this yarn! Broomstick Lace Shawl
I am calling this a Shawl instead of a Scarf because of the width of the item.  That being said, this is one of those patterns that you can modify with no problem; so, if you would prefer a narrower finished project simply start out by doing fewer chains.

Peaks and Valleys Beanie

Ok how cool does the top of this hat look?!
Peaks and Valleys Beanie

This hat starts out using a continuous circle and then moved onto and Invisible Joining, and then your traditional slip stitch joining.  Which manages to produce a finished hat that has virtually no visible joining seam (and the crowd goes wild)!  Don’t get overwhelmed this is a great pattern to stretch your skills and after a few rows it repeats itself.

Peaks and Valleys Cowl

The idea for this stitch pattern honestly came to me as I stood at the store staring at this beautifully colored yarn from Red Heart with Wool, wondering what I could make with them to justify me buying it (as I already had a hand basket full of beautiful yarn).  Then it hit me!  I had been wanting to make myself a cowl and I had been wanting to try out the Cluster Drop stitch, so into the basket this beautiful yarn went.

Peaks and Valley Cluster Drop StitchBe sure to Favorite on Raverly!

I am so happy with this cowl!  I love this yarn also, it is so soft and warm!  And it felt great in my hands as I worked with it!  I think a few more items shall be made with the bit of yarn I have left!
