ZigZag Scarf (free Crocheting pattern)

Zig Zag Scarf

I had a bunch of worsted weight leftover yarns from knitting or crocheting other things, and I decided to find me something to use them up. After fiddling around a bit and finding a pattern, I discovered the crocheting pattern itself isn’t new, I discovered single coloured potholders made in a similar way, but this ain’t a potholder 😉

This pattern can be downloaded as a PDF version here. (This is a Rapidshare download; if you don’t hold an accound with them, choose the free download. This might take a few moments, thanks for your patience!)

Crocheted Coral Brooches (free pattern)

Crocheted Coral Brooches


all

I don’t know how it is in your region, but when I buy safety pins over here, there are always a couple of those really big ones in the lot – like 5 cm or 2 inches long.

Too short to use as stitch holder unless you have only a couple to put on hold, too long to use for anything else. In any case, I have no use for them.

So I decided to try making brooches of them, and I was really surprised by the results.

Not only are the pins themselves invisible – they are also big enough to support the weight of the added yarn to stay stable and not droop.

Although all of the patterns follow hereafter, if you prefer a hard copy you can download a PDF version here and print it. This is a rapidshare download, you’ll need to choose the option applicable to you (premium user or free user). Free users will have to wait for a moment before their download begins. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

All patterns are mine. Please  do not distribute or sell either pattern or finished objects. Thanks.

Chain Maille Scarf – Free Crocheting Pattern

Chain Maille Scarf

chainmaille 02

I once talked to a guy about crocheting, and he told me he “knew how to crochet”. When I scratched that surface, I found out that all he could do was chain stitch…

This thought never left me, and I decided I’d create a pattern made exclusively of chain stitches and slip stitches (a slip stitch is nothing but a chain stitch worked through a previously formed loop).

But I didn’t just want a simple mesh – boring! So after some trial and error, I came up with this – and it produced a lovely scarf!

Light and airy, drapy, and yet it scrunches up to form a lovely warm neck-wear and is an eye-catcher at the same time.

As I only had one skein of this particular yarn, I worked the scarf lengthwise to have more control over the length, but it also worked up to a nice width.

You can download the pattern here to print it out for a hard copy, or read it online hereafter! (the download link is a rapidshare link, so if you are not a subscriber with them, you can use the free user button – this will take a while so be patient, thanks!

The downloadable pattern also includes a little tutorial at the end.
