Free Pattern: Crochet Censer

Recently I was asked to make a crochet censer for playing church. I couldn't find a pattern I liked so I made up my own.  It's just like a real censer, with a top that slides up and down and a little black coal brick that you can take in and out.   I wanted to make it perfect for playing church but I also had parents in mind;  it's bell-free, making both quiet and less of a choking hazard.  The trickiest part is attaching the chains but I've taken some pictures to help you along the way. As always, I'm available for help and support over  Facebook  messages and  Ravelry  so don't hesitate to contact me.  Pin HERE for later. Add to your Ravelry queue and favorites. Warning: Not suitable for children under three. Use common sense and always supervise your children when they play with this.  Instructions: What you'll need: D/3.25mm hook 55 yds. worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in Gold)   Small amount worsted-we

Crochet Abbreviations (US Terms)

This is not a complete list and may not use the same terms/abbreviations as your pattern. If you don't see the term you're looking for, most patterns should have a list of special stitches/abbreviations.  This list is the most common stitches and abbreviations used on Stuck with Ewe and compiled from my own knowledge.  Feel free to print this out and keep it in your project bag. I made an easy, ink-and-paper-friendly PDF for just that purpose:  Click HERE for the Printable PDF For easy online access,  Click HERE to Pin. * ... * Repeat these instructions { } or [ ] Repeat these instructions ( ) Work these stitches in the same stitch/space Alt Alternate Aprox Approximately Beg Begin/beginning BLO Back loops only BP Back post (usually combined with a stitch, eg.

Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Scrubbie

I haven't posted anything in a long time but I'm finally back with a simple flower scrubbie. It's a mere three rounds, requires little counting, and takes about ten minutes to make. You can make a bunch in a single sitting, making them perfect for Croflixing (Crochet+Netflix). They're also versatile-- I've been using mine as face scrubbies but they would be just as good in the kitchen.  I included some round-by-round photos to help with construction. It's such an easy, straightforward pattern it probably doesn't need a photo tutorial but now it's got one anyway.  I ' ve been working on better photos and hope to eventually take good  photos myself.  I don't know if I'm improved much but I certainly have been having fun.  But enough about photos. Let get right into the pattern.  Add this to Ravelry  HERE. Pin this  HERE. Abbreviations: Ch: Chain Sl st: Slip stitch Dc: Double crochet Shell: 5 dc in the same st Sk
