October 2002 Group Project Pillow

October 2002 Group Project Pillow@2003 By N.L. Banks


This pattern is copyrighted, and may not be used on any media, including websites,
lists, or newsletters. It is for your personal use only.

Materials list:
1 bag stuffing (one that is washable)
2 pieces of material, washable, 14 1/2 x 14 1/2 square (or if you don't have a sewing machine, just buy a 14 square pillow form. I like to make mine because I can stuff it fuller than the store ones.)

G crochet hook

Yarn, different colors, textures, like regular yarn, rug yarn, chenille (if it's too thin, use two stands held together) thick & thin yarn, etc. If you use a variegated yarn, make sure you have other colors to use also. Just make sure it can be used with a G hook.

If you are new to crocheting and don't know how to change colors, just use one color of yarn, it will be easier for you this way.

What you will learn:
We're going to first make a pillow, sew it together, and stuff it. Then make a sampler cover for it. You'll learn the difference between Clusters, Bobbles, and Popcorns. And maybe a few other stitches too, and get a pillow out of it for what ever you that you've chosen your colors for.

Step one Making the Pillow
1 Zic-Zac around outer edge of each piece.

2 Sew around three sides, using a 1/2 inch seam allowance.

3 Sew the last side, leaving the center 6 to 8 inches opening for stuffing.

4 Turn the pillow right side out, (I iron the 1/2 seam down so that it is easier to sew shut.)

5 Stuff pillow, be sure an put stuffing into each corner. Stuff really full, makes a nicer pillow.

Now for the sample.

Row 1 With main color yarn, ch. 45, 1 dc in 2 ch from hook and in each ch across row, work 5 dc in last chain, now working on other side of beginning chain, 1 dc in each chain across row,
work 5 dc in last chain. Join with slip stitch, ch 3. Do not turn, will we be working in rounds.

Row 2: Now we'll do some Bobbles. Work 4 more dc in same place, leaving the last loop of each dc on hook, (you should have 5 loops on hook), yo,draw through all the loops on the hook, ch 1. SEE you just made a bobblestitch. Now * Skip one dc, 5dc in next dc (leave last loop of each dc on hook (you should have 5 loops on hook, yo, draw through all the loops on the hook), ch 1, *. Repeat from * to * around, do 1 pop corn in EACH of the three end dc's,(the two ends of the pillow) join with slip stitch to top of beginning chain 3. Fasten off, attach 2 color here.

NOTE: I'm using brown as my main color, for a textured (2 color) I'm using Lionbrand's Homespun. You can also use a variegated color for round 3.

Round 3, ch 1, sc in each ch and top of Bobble, join with slip stitch to beginning ch 1.

Round 4 & 5 sc around, fasten off, attach 3rd color. ch 3.

Round 6. Dc in each sc around. Ch 3.

Round 7 Here we are going to do some Back Posts stitches, they leave a ridge on front side of the fabric that is really different, so let's get started.

Back Post Stitch (BPS) yo, insert hook from back to front and to back again around the vertical post of stitch (DC) below, yo (three loops on hook) and draw thread through two loops on hook, yo, draw through two loops on hook. One loop remains. Bps completed. Repeat around.
NOTE: Do you see how the top of the stitch sort of lays on it's side and forms a ridge?

Round 8 & 9 repeat round 7. Fasten off, attach 4th color.

Round 10 ch 1, sc around.

Round 11 On this row, you'll learn what a Cluster Stitch is. Ch 3, work a dc into each of the next 2 sc leaving the last loop of each dc on the hook, yo and draw through all four loops on hook.
Cluster made. * ch 1, cluster stitch over next 3 sc, repeat from* around. Join with slip stitch to top of ch 3, ch 3.

NOTE: you can have clusters made of 3,4, or even 5 stitches.

Round 12 Now we are doing to do a reverse Cluster. Or upside down cluster. * In the top of the next cluster, do 3 dc, repeat from * around. Join with slip stitch to top of ch 3. ch 1.

Round 13, sc around. Join with Slip Stitch Fasten off. Attach a variegated here.

Round 14 ch 3, 1 dc in each sc around. Join with Slip Stitch.

Round 15 Ch 3, dc in each dc around, join with Slip Stitch, Fasten off. Attach main color.

Round 16 Now we'll do more Bobbles. Work 4 more dc in same place, leaving the last loop of each dc on hook, (you should have 5 loops on hook), yo, draw through all the loops on the hook, ch 1. Now * Skip one dc, 5 dc in next dc (leave last loop of each dc on hook (you should have 5 loops on hook, yo, draw through all the loops on the hook), ch 1, *. Repeat from * to * around, join with slip stitch to top of beginning chain 3. Ch 3.

Round 17 Work 4 more dc in same place, leaving the last loop of each dc on hook, (you should have 5 loops on hook), yo, draw through all the loops on the hook, ch 1. Here things will be a bit different, * Skip one Bobble, work 1 Bobble stitch in next ch 1 space, ch 1 *. Repeat from * to * around, join with slip stitch to top of beginning chain 3. Fasten off main color, attach 2 color and Ch 3.

Round 18 ch 1, sc in each ch and top of Bobble, join with slip stitch to beginning ch 1.

Round 19 ch 1, sc around. Fasten off, attach 3rd color again, ch 3.

Round 20 Dc in each sc around, join with slip stitch to beginning ch 3.

Round 21 NOTE: On row 7 we did back posts, this time we'll do front post stitches (FPS), you'll see the difference between the two. FPS can also be used for ribbing.

Front Post Stitch: Working in front row just make, yo, insert hook from front to back and front again around the vertical post of stitch below, yo (three loops on hook) and draw thread through two loops on hook, yo, draw through two loops on hook. One loop remains. Fps completed. Repeat across row, join with slip stitch to beginning ch 3. Ch 3.

Round 22 yo, insert hook from front to back and front again around the vertical post of stitch below, yo (three loops on hook) and draw thread through two loops on hook, yo, draw through two loops on hook. One loop remains, repeat across row. Fasten off, join 4th color. ch 1

Round 23 Sc around, ch 3.

Round 24 Now we'll do some popcorns, in same place work 4 dc, take the hook out of the working loop and insert it into the top of the first dc made, fron front to back, now pick up the working loop and draw this through th close the popcorn, ch 1, * 1 dc in each of the next 2 sc, ch 1, 5 dc in next sc, take the hook out of the working loop and insert it into the top of the first dc made, fron front to back, now pick up the working loop and dreaw this through th close the popcorn, ch 1* repeat from * to * around, join with slip stitch to top of beginning ch, ch 1.

Round 25 1 sc in each dc and top of each popcorn, fasten off, attach 5th color. Ch 3.

Round 26 1dc in each sc around, ch 3.

Round 27 & 28 1 dc in each dc around, fasten off, attach 4th color, ch 1.

Round 29 sc in each dc around, ch ch 3.

Round 30 Now for some puff stitches. * skip 1 sc, yo, insert the hook in next sc, yo, and draw up a loop, (three loops on the hook), repeat this step twice more, inserting the hook into the same stitch each time, (7 loops on hook), yo, and draw through all the loops on the hook, ch 1,* repeat from * to * around. Join with slip stitch, ch 1.

NOTE: pull up the loops the same level as the chain 3 at beginning of row.

Round 31 sc around, fasten off, attach main color, ch 3.

Now we'll start the last part of the pillow cover, closing it.

Round 32, first try pillow cover on pillow, if it gaps out at the sides, then on this round, do four or five evenly spaced decreases. 1dc in each sc around, (remember the decreases if you need them. )

Round 33, same as round 33, fasten off main, attach another color here, any that you've used already in your pillow will do, slip the pillow form into the cover sc 1, sc around, and do some decreases if you need more to close the pillow.

NOTE: depending on the size of the form you've made or purchased, you can remove one row of dc, or add more rows of sc, to make it fit the form you have.

Round 34, sc around. Ch 1

Round 35. Slip stitch across the top of the pillow to close, fasten off. Weave in the last thread.

Well now, I hope you enjoyed this group project. You have learned about Front & Back Post stitches, Bobbles, Popcorns, and Clusters. Let me know how you did with this project.

Raised Half Double Crochet Stitch

November 2002 Stitch of the Month



Raised Half Double Crochet (R hdc) for sample, ch 20, and do a row of dc's across. turn.

First example is on a foundation row of half double crochets, (has hook in it)

Yarn over hook, insert hook from front to back to front around the stem of the stitch in the row below, yarn over hook, pull up loop, complete as a half double crochet.

These are like post stitches, you can also work this same type of stitch doing single crochet.

The second example shows the R hdc, using double crochet as the foundation row.

Notice how the back looks, you can use this stitch showing front or back, depending on the affect you want to show. Like the group pillow we did, I used the back of the post stitches (double back post stitch) on the front of the pillow. It will make a edge on the front, if you do three or four rows.

Try it and see how it shows. This is great for a textured affect on pillows, the bottom of sweaters for ribbing, etc.

At My House Knitting and Crochet list

This coming December 8th, the At My House Knitting and Crochet list will be on the Internet for 12 years, yes you read it right 12 years. The exchange leaders and myself have tried to make it the best place to be. We have added many features in the past years from Member of the Month, stitches, more exchanges, patterns, and even the contests. We hope you have enjoyed the list as much as we have and that you will continue to tell your friends and family about it. With over 3400 members, we must be doing something right.

Because the exchanges are closed during December and to help celebrate our 12 years of being on the net, we will have about 4 contests this month, so you will need to check your inbox to find out when. BUT read the rules, as I still have to delete so many simply because you just do not read them.

Coming in January we will have our member of the year. This list member adds a lot to the group by posting, helping other members, answering questions, joining in and offering help whenever she or he can. If they have joined any exchanges, then they have never been late, have helped the exchange leaders out when needed, and has followed all the list rules.

And if you are wondering how the name At My House came about, well when I first started it back in December 1998, it was on One list, who listed the groups alphabetically, and so it became At My House, so that it would be first one on the list, lol. You have Pat Haker and Penney Wilfort to blame for me starting it. They wrote me over and over again, so here it is 12 years later and still going strong.

Right now I would like to take the time to thank all my exchange leaders, who have given so freely of their time and sometimes money to help run this list. Without you, this list would not be what it has become today. Thank you.

Knitting Machine

My sister, bless her heart kept one of the sweaters that I had knitted about 25 years ago for my mom. It's pink, and her daughter is wearing it in this picture.



I had her take a picture of the inside of the sweater because I couldn't remember how I did the neckline. But when looking at it, I had hand sewn the neckline hem in. While the bottom was hung.

Cole's Sweater

I finished a hooded sweater in navy and red for my grandson, Cole. He's about 8, and told me that he wanted one. It was to be for Christmas, but he knew it was in the bag, and now he is wearing it. lol. Just happy that he liked it.

more stuff

It rained here last night. We went from really hot to rain, now it's chilly. But I like it better, gas is cheaper than running the air. Have bad headache. Hate that, can't think right when they are this bad.

Had some more of my patterns checked for 2011. Some of my exchange leaders are testing them for me. All 2010 are done, and now working on all the ones for 2011, of which I have done about 6or 7 months worth.

Also have been sewing, and relearning to use my knitting machine. But sometimes I get sick, and life gets in the way, and can't do a thing. Still not up to par for the knitting machine, have forgotten how to use it, but did do a couple of gifts for my sister. I would put the pictures up, but then she would know what I made her, lol.

Will be sewing again today, as soon as I can get rid of this headache, hurts really bad.

Sunday, October 3, 2010

today

I have been working on my knitting machine, trying to relearn what I have forgotten in the 20 or so years I haven't been using it. Got it fixed. Can't find the 3/11 or 3/12 yarn I really liked, but do have a bit on hand to relearn with. But I sure have forgotten a lot about using it. What's the saying use it or lose it, well I lost it and am trying really hard to find it. lol.

It's been raining (cooler weather) now it hot again. Good reason to stay indoors and learn to use it. Did do a swatch for a sweater. But really would like to find that 3/11 yarn I liked so much, but have been told they dont make it any more. That's life.

Knitting Machine

I have an sk700 knitting machine since the mid 80's and just now getting back to using it. I've had to send my carriage in for repair, so while I am waiting, I am trying to relearn everything that I have forgotten, which is a whole darn lot. I can't even remember how to cast on with it.

So I am using the lace carriage, learning to cast on, and trying to relearn everything! Makes me mad, because at one time I made sweaters and sold them. I still have the patterns, but darned if I know how to do them anymore. lol.

So when I have relearned it all. I will post a few free patterns here. Or anyway that is what I am planning on doing.

Heaven needed another angel

Heaven needed another angel, and our exchange leader Diane Focht answered the call at 4am today. We will miss her very very much, as she was a dear friend and sister to us all.

I've known Diane a long time over 12 years, she always just jumped in when I needed some extra help on the list. Or if I needed a shoulder to cry on, I will miss her so very very much.

Spring Meadows Crocheted Baby Blanket


Spring Meadows Baby Blanket

Please Note: When I did this pattern it was a free pattern from Elmore Pisgah, Inc. They are not owned by the same people any more. The Double Worsted weight yarn is no longer made.

I am guessing here, I no longer have the wrappers that the yarn comes with. Use a J hook.)

At My House Knitting and Crochet list

At My House Knitting and Crochet list
This past December 8th, the At My House Knitting and Crochet list will be on the internet for 11 years, yes you read it right 11 years. The exchange leaders and myself have tried to make it the best place to be. We have added many features in the past years from Member of the Month, stitches, more exchanges, patterns, and even the contests. We hope you have enjoyed the list as much as we have and that you will continue to tell your friends and family about it. With over 3100 members, we must be doing something right. Because the exchanges are closed during December and to help celebrate our 11 years of being on the net, we will have about 4 contests this month, so you will need to check your inbox to find out when. BUT read the rules, as I still have to delete so many simply because you just do not read them. Coming in January we will have our member of the year. This list member adds a lot to the group by posting, helping other members, answering questions, joining in and offering help whenever she or he can. If they have joined any exchanges, then they have never been late, have helped the exchange leaders out when needed, and has followed all the list rules. Below is a list of a few of the things this member will receive as member of the year."doilies, Potholders, Coaster Set,Towel Topper, Glass Cozy, Tea Pot Cozy, Crochet Book, Dishcloths and microwave potholder, Thread bookmark, Granny square slippers, Hot Stuff Hot Pad, yarns, and many more items. " And if you are wondering how the name At My House came about, well when I first started it back in December 1998, it was on One list, who listed the groups alphabetically, and so it became At My House, so that it would be first one on the list, lol. You have Pat Haker and Penney Wilfort to blame for me starting it. They wrote me over and over again, so here it is eleven years later and still going strong.Right now I would like to take the time to thank all my exchange leaders, who have given so freely of their time and sometimes money to help run this list. Without you, this list would not be what it has become today.

Thank you.Nina, list Mom http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Atmyhouse
