Round ripple lovey





Materials:
* 4-ply worsted weight yarn 
* J hook
* hair elastic tie

Note:
* I crochet tight so you may need to adjust the size of your hook
 


Sc around hair tie 32 times.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  



Ch 1, sc in same stitch.  Ch 3, *skip next sc, sc in next sc, ch 3.  Repeat from * around.  


Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  Sl st in 1st ch3 loop.


(Ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same ch3 loop.
 

*Skip next ch3 loop, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next loop.  Repeat from * around.  


 Join with a sl to to top ch of beginning ch 3.


Sl st in next dc, ch 3.  Dc in next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the ch2 space.  Dc in next 2 dc.   


Skip next 2 dc.  Dc in next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the ch2 space  Dc in the next 2 dc.  


Repeat all the way around. 


Join as before.  


Sl st in next dc.  Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch2 loop, dc in next 3 dc.  Skip next 2 dc.

   

*Dc in next 3 dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch2 loop, dc in next 3 dc,  skip next 2 dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before. 




Repeat the last round increasing the number of dc's on the sides.  

I have wracked my brain trying to come up with an easier way to explain this, and I can only come up with this:

Keep in mind that at the beginning of each Rnd, the ch 3 counts as a dc.

Rnd 6: dc in 5 dc's, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc), dc in next 5 dc's

Rnd 7: dc in 6 dc's, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc), dc in next 6 dc's

And so on.  The number of dc's will increase by one on each Rnd.


10 or 11 Rnds make a nice size lovey.

~ child's braided headband ~



The plastic circle headbands were purchased from the Dollar Tree.  They come in a pack of 3 - clear, brown, and black.

Cut 18 (eighteen) 7 foot long lengths of white 4-ply worsted weight acrylic yarn.  I used Red Heart Super Saver.

Take 3 strands and loop it in the middle.
Attach to 3rd circle from the end with a larkshead knot.
Attach 3 strands to the 2nd circle.
Attach 6 strands to the end circle.
Flip headband and attach 3 strands to the other side of the 2nd circle.
Attach 3 strands to the other side of the 3rd circle.


Attach 1 strand with a sc to the 4th circle, sc in same circle.  
Work 2 sc in each circle across to the end circle.  
Work 4 sc in last circle.










Working around the opposite side, work 2 sc in each circle until the 4th circle from the end.


Weave in the ends.
Braid the 3 sections.







Fold the braid over the headband and either sew or glue down.

Decorate as desired.

~ painted crochet hook ~

Good morning ladies.  I haven't been doing much crocheting the last week.  The only thing I have to show today is a painted crochet hook.


It is a size U 25mm wood crochet hook that I bought at AC Moore for $8.99.  I dipped it in aqua acrylic paint, hung it up on a cup hook to dry, then dipped it in blue acrylic paint and hung it up to dry again.  I then added the dots with a chopstick.  I haven't used it yet, but I'll be ready if I ever get the idea to crochet a rug or a really thick blanket.  

Have a great week everyone.  :)
