** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

A scrap round ripple


Some of you may remember this post:




Well - I changed my mind and started a round ripple with the scraps ball instead of the hexagon. I just love crocheting the round ripple. Here's what I have so far. (notice my Redskins colors crochet hook? I don't know why I made that - Redskins pretty much stink now)
Here's the pattern I use:

Little clown


After crocheting one of the closed grannies using Red Heart Kids "bikini" - I thought of a clown - so I came up with this little clown face. I think I'll give it to William and James to put on their refrigerator.
It also reminds me of the episode of the Simpson's where George Bush ended up with a rainbow colored afro wig glued to his head. Cracks me up. :)

New yarn & more closed grannies




Erica, Richie and the boys had given me a $25.00 gift card to Joann's for my birthday and I finally used it yesterday. Vince and I drove to the Annapolis store (they closed my beloved Bowie store) and I picked up 8 skeins of different variegated yarns for my closed grannie afghan I'm working on.

"Round in circles" scarf


I've started working on a new scarf for me. It's simple and kind of cute.

Materials:
- 4-ply ww acrylic yarn (I used TLC Heathers)
- I crochet hook

Size: each circle measures approximately 4 3/4" across

Notes:
- ch 2 at beginning of rnds 1 - 3 do not count as a st.
- I crochet tight so you may want to adjust the hook size
Directions:

#1st circle:
Rnd 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with a sl st to 1st dc. (12 dc)

Rnd 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around. Join as before. (24 dc)

Rnd 3: Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc, dc in next dc. *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from * around. Join as before.

Rnd 4: Ch 1, 2 sc in same dc, sc in next 2 dc. *2 sc in next dc, sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * around. Join with a sl st to 1st sc.

Rnd 5: Ch 1, sc in same sc, ch 3. *Skip next sc, sc in next sc, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join as before. End off.

#2nd circle:

Rnds 1 - 4: Repeat Rnds 1 - 4 of 1st circle.

Rnd 5: Ch 1, sc in any loop on 1st circle. Ch 1, skip next sc on 2nd circle, sc in next sc. *Ch 1, sc in next loop on 1st circle, ch 1, skip next sc on 2nd circle, sc in next sc. Repeat from * 2 more times. @Ch 3, skip next sc, on 2nd circle, sc in next sc. Repeat from @ around. Ch 3, join as before. End off.

#All remaining circles:

Rnds 1 - 4: Repeat Rnds 1 - 4 of 1st circle.

Rnd 5: Ch 1, sc in 9th loop on previous circle. Ch 1, skip next sc on working circle, sc in next sc. *Ch 1, sc in next loop on previous circle, ch 1, skip next sc on working circle, sc in next sc. Repeat from * 2 more times. @Ch 3, skip next sc on working circle, sc in next sc. Repeat from @ around. Ch 3, join as before. End off

Crochet as many circles as you would like to get the length you need.

*Thanks to Aluajala for this idea = Try crocheting the 1st 2 rnds in yellow, and then the rest of the rnds in different flower colors.
