Crochet Abbreviations

As a beginner to crochet, it is quite daunting to start reading and working from a pattern. There just seems to be a lot of random letters all together, kind of like a whole new language. Well that is right! Crochet has a language of it’s own. And every combination of ‘random’ letters mean something.

I wrote up a list of the most common crochet abbreviations for you and I have a YouTube tutorial: https://youtu.be/Ii4QpYM8YpM

The photo is sideways so that the writing is larger and easier for you to read.

Inspiration

We all have those days when we are full of inspiration and then we are on the go with making, planning and competing projects, but what about the days when that doesn’t happen?

There are so many great ideas there… And one can’t have a quick look, trust me I’ve tried, you will end up by browsing Pinterest for hours!!
Go have a look and you won’t be disappointed 😁.

Quick easy scarf-necklace

Hi all

This scarf-necklace is very easy to make and so quick. 

Pattern: 1 ball of 80g wool in colour of choice.

Chain 10, sc in chain across, turn, and sc across. Keep sc until the piece measures 4cm from top to bottom. Finish off.

With the remaining wool, chain as many chains as you can get, join to the beginning of the starting chain made. Now all you have to do is loop the long chain piece until it is all looped up. It doesn’t have to be equally wound up.

Take the little crocheted piece made at the beginning, the little swatch-like piece, and sew it over the looped chains to hold them all in place and to hide the join of the chains.

Viola! Completed scarf-necklace.
