I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Crochet Finishing touches

 

Whether you crochet or knit, you desire nice ways of finishing your garments, accessories et all with a nice edge.  I have enjoyed the FPsc and the Reverse Single Crochet for a long time.  As I was talking to my friend Tom Belunis the other day at the Ravelry Meet up, he show me two alternate ways of making a sc that looks like a reveres single crochet.  He learned these from a Lady named Marian Nelson. So the stitches she learned from some Japanese Crochet Technique I believe. I am happy to pass them along and make them in a video that can be share with a lot more people. I added the clockwise and counterclockwise, because is how I look at things. I have been designing hats like crazy and later this week I will have a new hat published. I will have to say that my passion is to make Hats in Tapestry Crochet and I really enjoy doing that. Enjoy the video and thanks for stopping by!
