Method 7 Assembling afghan with a Mattress Stitch or Ladder Stitch

Method 7
Assembling afghan with a Mattress Stitch or Ladder Stitch

A: Sewn from the back (this causes a ridge to form on the front)(same  as method #7, but sewn from the back)

Working with the wrong side of the squares up on a table, place the two squares together. With a yarn needle, and  starting at one end of the square on the right, go BETWEEN the center the top and bottom loops of the first stitch and pull yarn through, now go to the first stitch on the left square, and go BETWEEN the center of the top and bottom loops of the stitch, pull yarn through.

Keep going back and forth between the two squares, weaving them together for four or five stitches,
then pull the yarn up, firmly, gently.    Keep adding squares and weaving them together, until
you have added all your squares. You can also use this method to join thread crochet, such as tablecloths, bed spreads, etc when they are squares. I would like to thanks Jenny Seymour for her help.

Method 6 Assembling the afghan

Method 6
 
Assembling afghan

Working with the right side of the squares up on a table,  place the two squares together. With a crochet hook, make a band around the square.

Join the motifs together crocheting one row in a fancy stitch on one side of each motif, making sure to leave sufficient space between the motifs.


Keep adding squares and whipstitching them together, until you have added all your squares.

You can also use this method to join thread crochet, such as tablecloths, bedspeards, etc.

Method 4 How to assemble an afghan

Method  4

Assembling  Afghan by crocheting it together

Working with the right side of the squares up on a table,
place the two squares together. With a crochet hook, take up
a loop from BOTH top and bottom loops of each square, and crochet
them together. Repeat across square, add two more squares,
crocheting these together, till you have the afghan, the
number of squares that you want it wide.

Go back and crochet the sides of each square together.
You now have completed two rows of your afghan.

Keep adding squares and crocheting them together, until
you have added all your squares.

How to assemble an afghan #5

Method  5

Assembling  the Afghan by crocheting it together

Working with the right side of the squares up on a table, place the two squares together. With a crochet hook, take up   a loop from the bottom loop only of each square, and crochet  them together. Repeat across square, add another square, crocheting these together, until you have the width of the afghan you want.  Repeat for sides and rest of the squares.

Keep adding squares and crocheting them together, until you have added all your squares.  This is my favorite way to put an afghan together, I like the "edge" you get by not using the top loops of each square, see the picture.

How to make Plastic Bag holders.


How to make Plastic Bag holders  By N.L. Bank
 This makes a fun and easy to do christmas gift.

What do you do with all the plastic bags you collect from the stores??  Toss them out, put trash in them, use them to line waste baskets like everyone else But where do you store them, like a lot of people you may use one bag and stuff all the others into it, then hang it in a closet. I have something for you. A Plastic bag holder.

You will need:
1 8 inch piece of elastic either ½ or ¼ wide
2 pieces of a matching material (a), flowers etc 6 inches by 14 inches
2 pieces of solid material (b) 6 inches by 14 inches.
1 piece of white or cream material (c) 5 inches by 14 inches
1 piece of iron on stabilizer 5 inches by 14 inches.
1 strip of material 3 inches by 12 to match a.
 
You will also need sewing thread to match a, a design to match your kitchen.
I used the cup and saucers set digitized by Laura at http://www.designsbysick.com/details/cupsandsaucers.
 
1.     Iron stabilizer to white or cream material, set aside.
 
          2.     Sew A to B, B to C, C to B, B to A.  See to left.








 
3. Do a stitch out of your chosen design first. Mark the center of the   fabric to center your design. Then lay your design sample on the white  or cream fabric (c), make sure the tablecloth part covers the solid fabric,  move your design by using your controls on your machine so that the table cloth part of the design hangs over the solid material. remove your sample, and stitch out the design.
 
   4.    With your machine's lettering, center Plastic Bags above the design you have stitched out. If you have a 4x4 like I do, you will have to un-hoop  your fabric, re-center and then stitch the letting in place. See sample.
  5.  Hem ends of plastic bag holder by folding up bottom of bag ¼ inch, sew in place, now fold up 1 inch and sew in place to make casing. Run the 8 inch piece
       of elastic thru and tac at each end.
   6.  Hem the top by folding the top down ¼ inch, sew in place and fold down again, sew.
    7. Sew back seam.
  
    8.  Sew hanger by laying the strip of 3 x 12 material flat, fold long eds to middle, iron, fold again,
    then sew. Fould up ends, sew in place.
 
   9.     Center handle at top to each side so that the design lays in middle,and sew in place. And you are done.

Alaskan Sweethearts

Alaskan Sweethearts by Janet Tronstad

         This book starts out slow, but the pace picks up, love the characters, and the story line (from Montana to Alaska). 

       The hero Hunter, is a lone cowboy with two brothers that were raised by his grandfather after the death of their parents. Now Colin (the Grandfather) wants to play match maker for Hunter. Colin spend his early years in Alaska working a gold mine. With the money he made, he purchased 80 areas in Montana, leaving the woman he loved behind to another.
       With all the schemes Colin does, Hunter is trying to save the heroine (Scarlett) from being cheated. But Scarlett is in no mind to listen to Hunter, she just wants the land the Colin is giving her and Hunter is afraid that it’s just another of his granddads crazy schemes.

       Colin, Scarlett and Hunter travel to Alaska, where Colin meets once again the love of his life. The action really picks up here. The ending of this story is great, but I am not telling you, you’ll have to read it yourself.

December 2012 Stitch of the Month Crochet


December 2012 Stitch of the Month Crochet

This is an easy and fun stitch to try.
Multiples of 6 chain plus 2.

For sample chain 20 (3 x 6 + 2 = 20)

Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, * ch 5, skip 5 ch, 1 sc in next ch, repeat form * across, ch 1, turn.

Row 2: 1 sc in first sc,* ch 5, 1 sc in next sc, repeat from *  across row,  ch 1, turn.

Repeat Row 2 until square or desired length.

These would make nice curtains if crocheted with a thinner yarn.  Or even place mats, and run ribbon thru the ladles.
