Hey, it's been a while....

Vintage Childs Collar

In US terms

This pattern can use any yarn and hook combination. I have generally gone for a DK with a 4.5mm - 6mm hook.
This gives you a collar that should fit a toddler.

Chain 54

Hdc in the 2nd chain from hook (53)

Ch 3, Trb in next 3 St, *2 Trb in next Stitch, Trb in next 3 St*  Repeat to end (67)

Ch 1, Sk 1st St, 5 Trb in next St, *Sk 1 St, Sc, Sk 1, 5Trb* Across. Slst into turning chain of previous row.

I'm on a creative streak!!

So I had some Eskimo left over from my last project and I hate having bits of yarn sitting around.

I decided as my last pattern was well received I would create another!!

Here is my chunky bracelet pattern-

Super Bulky yarn

6mm Hook

Chain 20

SS into 1st chain

chain 3, 1 tr into each sc around

SS into 3 chain.

1 tr all around

ss into 3 chain

1 tr all around

ss into 3 chain

Fasten off.

Darn foundation chain into last chain off trebles to create a 'sausage'

I found this way much quicker than making a tube then folding down.

You may have realised by now I have a very short attention span!!

Thanks again for reading and I hope I make sense.

My first crochet pattern for Ravelry.

My addiction is and I saw someone make a knitted key cosy.
I wanted one!!!!!

So this is where my first published pattern is (for free of course)

Crochet Key Snuggly

Any light weight yarn and an appropriate hook to make snug tight stitches.

I used a sock yarn and 2mm hook.

Chain 6.
SS to chain 1.
6 sc.
2 sc, 2 sc in the same stitch, 2 sc, 2 sc in the same stitch.
8 sc.
3 sc, 2 sc in the same stitch, 3 sc, 2 sc in the same stitch.
10 sc
1 sc, dec 2sc, 1 sc, dec 2sc, 1 sc, dec 2 sc, 1 sc

At this point you can put it on the key and stitch up the top by sc on side to the other.

I hope you can all understand what I'm talking about!!
