Rainbow Cluster Stitch Scarf Tutorial (Giveaway #1)

February 11, 2013
In: Crochet

The first tutorial in my rainbow giveaway series is this colorful and warm scarf. This project is easy to make, and requires only one type of stitch and a lot of weaving in. But the result is entirely worth it. At least, that’s how I feel.

By the way, if you haven’t entered the giveaway yet – there’s still time! For details click here. It’s open until February 28th, and you can win this item or enough yarn to make it (and more).

Crochet Cat Toy/Scarf Tutorial

August 28, 2011
In: Crochet

A while ago I got a truck load of yarn from my mother. The black yarn is always useful, and the turquoise and light blue were used in a boy’s baby blanket I made as a gift. Here I am, “stuck” with about 5-6 balls of grey yarn, without an idea what to make. I asked some friends and readers, and everyone suggested various grey animals: mice, elephants and cats. I already made an elephant once and wasn’t happy with the result (I need to think of a better design than the pattern I used). Mice can be cute, but I really like cats, so I decided to go in that direction. Maybe I’ll make a mouse for the cat to play with next…

I made the body flat because I thought it was softer and more cuddly that way, but it can also be made into a cute scarf if you make the body long enough. You could also make it into a pillow by making 2 body pieces, stuffing them and sewing closed.
