Crunchy Stitch Neck Cozy

Best Blog Tips

I came up with this stitch while tinkering with my hook and starting to make this neck cozy. Since it has some texture to it, I named it Crunchy stitch. It is very easy to make.
Materials:

Red Heart Hunter green
G crochet hook
3 green buttons about the size of a dime
green sewing thread
sewing needle
measuring tape
scissors

with G Ch 16. Row 1- 1 sc in 2nd ch of hk and in every ch across. Ch 3, turn (counts as 1 dc throughout). Row 2- 1 dc in each sc across. Row 3- 1 sc and 1 dc in first dc, skip next dc, 1 sc and 1 dc in next dc, *skip next dc, 1 sc and 1 dc in next dc, rep from * across until you reach the last stitch. Work 1 dc and 1 sc (inverted) in that last stitch. Ch 1, turn. Row 4- 1 sc in each sc across. Continue alternating rows 2 to 4 for pattern. Continue in this manner until your neck cozy measures 23-1/2 inches long,(or 59 rows) ending with a dc row. When you reach the end of your last row, ch 1, and insert the hook in the same dc you just made. Row 60- Make 1 row of sc across the edg widthwise.
Edging: Row 61- Ch 3, turn, 1 dc in each of next 2 sc, ch 3 skip 3 sc, *1 dc in each of next 3 dc, ch 3, skip 3 dc, rep from * across. Row 62- Ch 3, turn. Skip last 2 dc of prev row and make 4 dc in ch-3 space , * ch 3, skip next dc, make 1 sc in next dc, skip next dc, ch 3, make 4 dc in next ch-3 space, rpe from * across. Finish with 1 sc inthe middle of last 3-dc group from prev row. Fasten off. Hide tail. Place one end of the neck cozy over the other, crossing it and measure where you want your buttons to be placed. Sew the buttons on the side that would be underneath when you cross the cozy to close it up, place them so that the dc row that crosses over the buttons will serve as buttonholes.
You’re done!

Double Duty Cowlette

Best Blog Tips

This is a nifty idea. A short cowl that can hug your neck and warm it, and which, by simply pulling at the cord and making a bow with it, can turn into a little hat!
Easy and fast to make with the nice texture of a pebbly Offset Cluster, you can make it in a single sitting if you are a fast crocheter!
Here's the pattern:

Materials:
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Cherry Red
Red Heart Soft Navy
Crochet hook size H
Scissors
A small piece of cardboard to make tassels (about 4 inches)

With Cherry Red and H hk, ch 17.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hk and in every ch across (15 dc). Row 2: q dc in next 2 dc, ch 1, skip next dc, 1 dc in next dc, then make an Offset Cluster in this last dc this way: Yarn over, insert hk around the post of the this last dc made as if to make a dc, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hk, hold the last loops onthe hook and repeat until you have 5 unfinished dc in the hook, yarn over and pull up a loop through all loops on hook and slip st to secure, ch 1, skip next dc, dc in each of next 3 dc, ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next dc, work another Offset Cluster in this last dc made, ch 1, skip next dc, 1 dc in each of next 3 dc. Ch 3, turn. Row 3- 1 dc in each dc and ch across, including in top of each Offset Cluster. Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have completed 36 rows. Fasten off, leaving a long tail to sew with. Row 37-With Soft Navy, sc across edge of the red fabric just finished. (71 sc made). Ch 1, turn. Row 38- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. Row 39- 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 2, turn. Row 40 (Eyelet row)- Skip 1 sc, sc in next sc, ch 1, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc, repeat across. Ch 1, turn. Row 41-1 sc in each st across. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew with.

Row 45-Rep row 44. Rows 46-47: Rep row 1. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew with. Turn cowlette on wrong side and sew, using the tails you left as you worked.
Cord: Holding together a strand of Cherry Red and Of Soft Navy at the same time, and H hook, crochet a chain of 97 chains. Sl st in last loop, leave a medium-length tail on both ends. Make a knot on each end of the cord (do not tighten it). Straighten cowlette so that the back seam is int he middle of the back and threading a blent needle with one of the tails left on the cord, thread the cord in and out through the eyelet row, making sure both ends of the cord wind up in the center of the front of the cowlette.
Make two tassels (short like I made htem or long, if you like them that way), sew them to the ends of the cord. Fasten off.
You're done!

"It is just as easy to go through life looking for the good and the beautiful instead of the ugly; for the noble instead of the ignoble; for the bright and cheerful instead of the dark and gloomy; the hopeful instead of the despairing; to see the bright side. To set your face always toward the sunlight is just as easy as to see always the shadows, and it makes all the difference in your character between content and discontent, between happiness and misery, and in your life between prosperity and adversity, between success and failure." –Orison Sweet Marden
