Whimsical Stitches: A Modern Makers Book of Amigurumi Crochet Patterns
About this deal
As you are auditioning stitches (from any stitch source), count the number of canvas threads on the diagram that match your mesh size. And there you have what an inch of the stitch will look like. Evaluate that against the area where you plan to use the stitch and make your final decision. If you start integrating this step into your stitch selection process, you may be surprised at how many stitches you think are large are much smaller than you realize. Reflect your brand: Choose a name that aligns with your brand's values, style, and target audience.
Tom’s book contains over 30 knitting and crochet patterns including stylish wardrobe essentials and chic homewares and that’s why we love crochet books. They are choc-full of creative inspiration and crochet projects to keep you happy, especially during the winter months when getting cosy at home with a hook and a ball of yarn is a the perfect way to spend an evening. This is a great all-purpose small stitch, perfect for almost all clothing. I would love to see an overdyed wool and solid wool for a sweater or pants. I’m using this for some architectural accents (with two metallics) for Big Ben on a current project I’m working on. It will also make a cute little tree trunk with two shades of Vineyard Silk. I'm Lauren, the gal behind A Menagerie of Stitches! I'm a self taught crocheter and a published author of 4 amigurumi books and 1 children's picture book (Whimsical Stitches, Crochet Cafe and Animal Amigurumi Adventures Volume 1&2, and First Words With Cute Crochet Friends. I have a deep love for all things cute and designing amigurumi is one of my very favorite things to do. Besides crocheting, I also enjoy knitting, cross stitching and baking sweet treats. When I'm not crafting or baking, I'm usually on some sort of adventure with my husband, Carl, and our two pups, Thunder and Storm.This tall symmetry of this stitch also lends itself for elegant architectural applications, such as the columns of a fireplace mantle, or a door.It would make a fantastic roof, especially on the horizontal axis.
Mary’s Whimsical Stitches Volume 4 is coming in June! It’s filled with the content you love, with a specific focus on small stitches. Content includes: Well, I love it! But first, a little about the diagram and the stitched sample. The diagram uses two colors in the open gingham area to help distinguish the two steps I use to create a gingham pattern. The stitched sample uses a single color of Soie D'Alger for the entire open gingham area. (I used two plies for the satin columns and three for the open gingham.) The pattern was created for a tabletop (open gingham) and a wall above it (satin columns).Review: Bought for my sister as a gift and I’d almost like to take up crochet to make the things in this beautiful book Be unique: Aim for a name that sets you apart from competitors and captures the essence of your crochet business. It had been a long time since I had tried to crochet anything, but the clear directions and the charming photographs inspired me to try. I made the Tomato creature, using red sport yarn and a size C hook. It came out so cute, smaller than the pattern (only 2 ½ inches), because of the change in yarn and hook size. It was easy, I learned some new skills, and ended up with a darling finished product. This book will spark your creativity to craft your own unique creations.
