Tulips Aplenty Dress

 A Free Crochet Pattern


I can not tell you how happy I am that spring is on the way. We will get more chances to go outside and play, and we won't have to deal with those bulky coats. I am adding another old pattern to the blog this week.

This sweet little dress is also from the Crochetvolution archives. I have very slowly been bringing those patterns over to the blog so they can be found in one place. The pictures I have of Little One in this dress make me wonder where all the time as gone. She is not so little any more.

This is a longer pattern but it comes together quickly. Because it is so long I have provided a pdf that is available to purchase for $3.00.
Just click the buy now.
It will take you over to my Ravelry Store. This is a great option if you want an ads free printer friendly version.

Celebrate spring with me by trying out this little big pattern.

Coil Baskets

I want to share some inspiration with you. I have been really jealous of all the home decorating sites that have the giant baskets that sit under end tables and such. You know what I am talking about. Like this one from World Market or This one from Pottery Barn. So obviously those are out of my price range. That meant I had to come up with something else. I had been seeing how to make crocheted coil baskets on Pintrest, so I thought that I would give it a try. I decided at first that I would use t-shirt yarn for the coil part, and size 10 thread for the crochet part.
It ended up being to small. But it is perfect for my daughter's Easter Basket this year. I love how it looks, even if it was to small.

I knew that I then had to come up with something bigger to use as my coil. We just moved again to another apartment and that means I took inventory of everything we had and if we really needed everything. I came across some clothesline that we have moved with 4 times and we still had not used it. I thought, "finally I can use this. I'm so glad we kept packing it up."
The clothesline was 100 ft, and it was just the right amount I needed. When I was done, in went "some" of my scrap yarn. I am designing another scrapgahn to help use it all up so be on the look out for it.


Recipe or loose guideline.

Size: The basket ended up being 11 inches tall with a circumference of 35 inches.

Materials: 100 ft of clothesline, 4 balls of Sugar and Cream cotton yarn.
Hook: H



I started by tying a knot with both the clothesline and the cotton together, then just using the cotton I made 8 sc around the clothes line.

Then I moved the clothes line so that it would wind around and I started to make 2 sc in the starting sc and then I made 2 sc in each of the next 7 sc (making a circle), With a stitch marker you can keep track of where your starting sc is, or like me you can just wing it, but I would recommend the stitch marker.

One the next level I made an increase st every other sc, the next level I increased every second st, the next level I increased every third st. I continued increasing in this pattern till I got to round 10.

 I made one more row of an increase every 10 stitches. At this point I had gotten to the part of the clothesline where it had stopped coiling around itself.  After that I just crocheted around and around and around. I ended with 33 rounds.


For the handles I crocheted 15 sc around the clothesline without going through the sc below, skipping 15 sc, then I crocheted 30 sc, then 15 sc without going below and skipping 15 sc, then I crocheted another 30 sc.

I also made this small rectangle one with t-shirt yarn and Luster Sheen yarn.

 For This basket I used t-shirt yarn and size 10 cotton thread.
 
These baskets were a lot of fun to make. I hope they bring some inspiration for you to think outside the box.

Super Chunky Twisty Neck Warmer

A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern


I have this yarn:


I think that maybe it is rug yarn. I used to have a lot of this yarn. I tried making it into a rug, and it looked awful.
I threw it away.
I know "Bad Julia, Bad!"
You do not throw yarn away, even when it has been made into something awful. You could find another purpose for it.

I have been seeing these knitted neck warmers all over Pintrest and Etsy, and then my friend made one. I had to have one too. I would much rather crochet than knit so I hurried up and made a pattern for myself using Tunisian crochet. I am pretty happy with the results.

Where Can I Get This Pattern?

I have made a PDF Available for this Tunisian Crochet Pattern. This is a great option if you want to print it off, and it will be ads free. You can Find it in My Ravelry Store for $3.00.
