Thread Rose Ring

Thread Rose Ring

I was playing around with some thread  came up with a rose ring i thought you might like  to make your self. Or even for fingers that swell, or can’t wear some metals.  I could think of Many Reasons Why to make them, so  here it is:)

Thread Blue Rose Ring

Thread Blue Rose Ring

American Terms. used. 

stitches used

ch~ chain

sc~ single crochet

dc~ double crochet (only for leaf) 

Tr~ Triple crochet  (only for leaf)

What you will need~

scissors

your choice of needle~ i used a shape end with a large eye for the thread to go threw.

Number 4 steel hook( i used a #4 steel hook).  or what ever size  helps   (most suggest a #7 to work this thread with.) 

 you will need thread. i used # 10 Thread. 

in this case i used

Dark red, Blue, off white, and hunter green. all # 10 thread.  you will not need much  takes very little for a single ring.

ok  if your ready lets get started:)

start with the off white  or what ever color you would like to use for the base of the ring. 

leave a long tail to sew in to the ring on both your starting thread and ending thread. 

Row 1: ch 4.  work  sc across chain for 3 sc total.  ch 1 turn,

Row 2:  3 sc ch 1, turn  Repeat this Row tell it fits over the knuckle of the finger you want to wear it on.    will be hard to see  the rows and count stitches.  i used 20 to 23 rows.  

sl st the 3 sts. don’t cut tell it fits over the knuckle a little tight but sides on and  back off finger.

fitting over the knuckle will work best,

 if you get the ring wet it will stretch out  so if it’s a little snug this will help it.

 If it is loose already  you may want to wear it on another finger and make a tighter one. 

Ring Base

Ok now that you have the size as you like  put your hook down,  Cut the thread leaving a tail to sew with.  Fold your ring in half with your first and last row matching.  your 3 sl stitches. on top. with 2 thread ends from ring. 

Now  take one thread end  and thread your needle (or if you rather tie them then do that.) work the thread end back and forth threw the 3 sl sts.  weave it threw a few stitches in the row below to lock it in.  The other end you can hold on and use it to weave back threw your rose or just weave it in and cut it off. 

 Now test your ring  Does it fit?  If  it fits and your ready lets get to the  next part.

Ring base

Rose

Blue , and Gold one made with #1 rose pattern. Dark Red, and Purple in #2 rose pattern.

The Rose and leaves~ 

#1~  In Blue or your choice color~   leave a long tail on both ends to sew with.

Ch 20,  sc in 3rd chain from hook, ch 3, skip 2 stitches and sc, across.  if you don’t have a sc in the last chain it’s not the end of the world.  no one will see it.:)  cut. leave a long tail 

#2~ in Dark Red~ or your choice color.  

ch 20, sc in 3rd from hook. ch 2, sc in same stitch, sc next st, ch 2, sc in same stitch.( repeat sc ch 2, sc  to end).  cut leave long tail.

now roll the starting end up to  the end with thread tails. ( like a cinnamon roll. )

Thread your needle and sew thew the center of the rose like slicing the cinnamon roll in half.  work threw the other side the same when you have it ready to sew to ring slip needle to center and sew to center closing seam on your ring.  this will cover your  seam on ring. ( the 3 sl sts on top)

Starting Leaf can crochet on or just sew on.

Starting Leaf can crochet on or just sew on.

Now for the Leaves ~  make 2.  Leave long tail on both ends to sew with.

(you can sl st on ring and start leaf or make it and sew it in place after.  I did sl st on, worked leaf, then  sl st to ring at end of leaf.  used a long tail to sew leaves down not working all the way threw the ring. just picking up a loop or 2 to hold  or tack it down. )

Chain 4,  tr in 4th ch from hook. dc in same place cut.   leave tail to sew to ring. both sides. 

Ending leaf. sl st. or just sew on.

Ending leaf. sl st.
or just sew on.

take one end thread needle and sew to ring just next to rose weave in end (or tie off on the  under side.) thread other side and  sew down and weave off or tie on under side and repeat with other leaf.

100_1299 100_1295 100_1294 100_1292 100_1291 100_1298

your done. i hope you enjoy your ring.  :)  the sewing is the hardest part of it and getting one to fit you just right.  you might have to make  more than one.  If you don’t like the sewing part you can tie them off like i said before:)  i hope that helps:)

Finished Ring. ends all weaved in. Will last longer than a life time :)

Finished Ring. ends all weaved in. Will last longer than a life time:)

Finished Ring. Notice no knots, or threads on inside of ring other than a sl st on both sides of the leaves.

Finished Ring. Notice no knots, or threads on inside of ring other than a sl st on both sides of the leaves.

my first one fits my pinky finger better than my ring finger:)  but after i get it wet it will fit perfectly:)  

Shell:)   Lets see your rings:)

By the Way~ last night i thought it would be cute to have a corset like ring or a guarder like ring:)

the inspiration is endless:)  

Other rings i have been playing with. Notice the Gold one made with gold thread, and the Silver thread.  different Thread  works very differently.

Here is a close up of the popcorn. salted, butter, and caramel. i didn’t find the color i needed for cheesy popcorn.

The Bag i made for the popcorn, was made from an old CD. 

If your interested in  making this bag  i used this method to make it. follow this  link 

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/plastic-yarn-cd-basket-with-lid

i used worst weight yarn, hook H, pulled my starting loop threw the center opening on the CD. slst over edge of CD this stitch does not count.

sc 44 times around CD. total. 

to make it red and white alternate 4 red sts, and 4 white sts, for 8 rows.

carry over the other color, on last dc you will switch colors on the last yo, to complete the dc. your new color should be on top of  finished dc, to start your new color. 

use a reverse sc to finish it off and give it an edge.. cut your done. 

i hope that helps. 

this pattern uses very little yarn.

fast and fun.

not to mention a load of laughs when you trick some one into thinking they are real:)

Now you just need the Movie😀

 

 

Stash yarn monsters

 

Stash yarn monsters were inspired  by a picture i found online.

these would work great on any garment crochet or not, weather you want to make some thing more monster like or just place them in random places they are a lot of fun.

These eyes are made with stash scrap yarn. takes very little yarn and less than 2 cotton balls of cotton or fiber.

I made some adjustments so  if you don’t like loosing your eyes you wont:)

Adding fuzzy eye lash yarn around the eyes really makes them come alive. You could make a pair of Lorax eyes  with these.  I wish i had thought of making these for my Agent “T”.  well  there is always  another day  right?

ok lets get to it.  here is what you need.

Worst weight yarn~ some scrap  pieces

scissors~  cut  yarn only.

Blunt needle~ to sew in ends

Hook ~H or smaller to obtain  the Gage you need.

eyes

 

again i didn’t weave in the ends and started next to the last sts made.

eye

 

the first 3 rows made, now to decrease the next row.

eye

 

7 sc2togs and sc the last st.  about this much cotton or scrap yarn.

eye

 

4 sc2togs on top, ch 2.  to attach it to  eye lid.

100_0046

 

pull the center sting back threw to other side so you can work the eye ball in, now flip it inside out so you can see.

100_0047

 

place your hook from one side to the center opening(magic ring) to attach your eye ball sl st or sc,  across from  the stitch you just made sl st or sc again. then ch 2, and sl st back to eye ball.

100_0048

 

weave in that end. and your done with the eye:)

100_0049

 

this is what you should have now.

100_0052

 

now if you want the 2 eyes to stay together and keep the look you made sew the lose end you finished the lid with to sew them together in the middle of the 2 eye.

Remember  your eye will move freely in the lid, but the lid is set. so  when sewing  the 2 lids together make sure you have them where you want them first.

then  go Crazy they are monsters after all:)

i didn’t use button’s  for this Super Girl Minion.

i will note : i used Pipe cleaners for the arms. folded a jumbo pipe cleaner, they helped a lot.

I did change the pattern of the feet i didn’t like the way it was made, and i made my pockets one row bigger to make sure my Gru sign fit.

Since i don’t really use plastic eyes and what not. I would rather made them.  I did.

slowly pull your magic ring now not too much. weave in this end.

you will want to check it against, your pocket, make sure your “G” sign is centered and just inside your  yellow Dash Line.

After sewing this G on,

use some Black~ and just out line the G out side edge and in center using the  yarn to  work over the center to hold the blue thread and cover it, and define your G<~ line better.

all this done before pocket is sewed down to overall’s.

 100_8852

My adventures not over yet. i am still making more.

I have made a shorter chubbier~~ one all i did there was ~

Increase the Round 2 more Rows.

( in other words i increased the head 2 rows from the last increase at 7 sc, 2 sc in the next st, around to =  9 sc, 2 sc in the next st. i added 2 more rows.)

then~ i decreased the 55 Rows of sc, by only 5 rows. then worked as you would to close.

nothing any different other than i used~ Mouth 2 for Chubbier minion. it’s just a better one.

i hope this helps some one making their minions.

We all need a little help.

Well, i will see you later,  these minions  keep you pretty busy just trying to remember their names:)

I found this  Skull Shawl Pattern Free.  As well as this Chart .skull shawl

The Creator  was very clever, created it back in April.

Since then i have been working on it, playing with it. It’s a lot of Fun:)

The pattern is written in Swedish and English. There are 2 methods work eyes first, or Work them in as you go. I worked them is as i went. You can find it down the Skull Shawl Pattern Page, Along with a Cheat Sheet when you get the hang of it.

I have made every mistake you could lol  i feel your pain  if your having problems getting pasted 3 working on the Shawl.

I discovered i made it too hard on my self, Mistakes i made~

So, i will save you some trouble, always increase on the 6th Chain across. Not the 5th or it will change your pattern and will not work right beyond. Check and Re check.

next, always check your chains to head ( if you ch 2 by mistake you will be frogging it shortly after. )

Make sure your ch 2, hdtr are there and chains are correct. ( starting chain ) or it will be lopsided.

All stitches need to be the same, not too loose, not to tight don’t change tension.  or your shape will change on the Diamonds.

Check all your 4 dc make sure it’s not 5 or 3.  unless working wrap where that changes.

Using the Pattern  Created,  i made my own Head Wrap and wanted to share  it with you.:)

***If you have not worked the Skull Shawl Pattern,  and would like to make the head Wrap You Will Need the link   i posted above to start the Wrap.  You will stop working on the link page at End of Row 14. ***

****  I used  hdtr~ Half Double Crochet ,Rather than dtr~ Double Treble crochet****

100_8718

This Wrap will pick up from here. You may still need to refer back to the pattern for help at first.

U.S. terms

What you will  need ~

Hook and yarn of your choice.  not a lot of yarn used here. a 7 oz, will give you more than one.

i used a H hook, and worst weight yarn.

Stitches Used~

Yo~ wrap yarn on hook.

ch~ Chain

sl st~ Slip Stitch

sc~Single crochet

dc~ Double crochet

(I used  hdtr~ Rather than dtr~ Double Treble crochet)

hdtr ~ Half Double Treble   ( Yo 3, put hook in loop , yo draw threw 2, yo draw threw 2, yo draw threw last 3.)

Now, as i said before  you will need the link  above.  Work threw Row 14.

This picture shows the end of Row 14.   (I am Left Handed by the way.)

01

this is a close up.

02

Here i have the skull head wrap folded in half.

It should look the same on both sides.   Check it over make sure there are no mistakes.

100_8733

Start~ with a sl st. This starts the Head Wrap Row 15

04

Next ch 3, work 3 dc in this first space. ch 2, 4 dc. look below at next picture  to see it better.

work as you would 4 dc, ch 2, to center top ch 6, ( Rather than 9 or 8)

05

this picture shows the end of Row 15, and Start of 16.  This Row 16:  you will need work over that center ch 6, ( 4 dc, ch 2, 4dc )

100_8738

This is a better look at Rows  15, 16, and the start of 17.

06

I made this Chart  for help Row 15~19 to finish the skull head wrap.

100_8743

Here is the picture with out the dots. So you can see the stitches. Remember i am left handed.

If your Right handed this may be backwards to you.

That is it, on the Skull Head Wrap cut and weave in ends.  look below for more on this.

100_8742

Back side of the Wrap measured  3 1/2  to 4 inches.

100_8745

12 inches long.

20 inches for a head so it will stretch some if needed for a larger head.

If you have a smaller head i made a tie for mine, ch 4, dc,* ch 3, dc,  repeat* 52 total.  cut weave in ends.

100_8747

Your Finished Skull Wrap should look like this, if you use a tie like mine  you can weave it in the spaces or in between the 2 dc in middle of 4. like i did.

100_8748

Here is a close up.  Tie in front between 2 dc, and threw the 2 middle dc around.

100_8749

Here is the tie in front

100_8750

Here is the Tie in back only threw the 2 middle dc of the 4.

100_8751

100_8752

This is your Finished Picture and how to put it on.

100_8753

If you do not want it connected, Would Rather a button and loop.

you will need to stop the Increase on the sides, skip the ch 2, hdtr  and ch 8. Starting at Row 15. instead repeat the ch 3, and ch 5, method for a flat Edge.

I think for smaller heads the Tie works Great in back.

You can even tuck the corner in back looks nice too:)

I have been Working a lot of Projects up with this Clever Pattern. I hope to Update this post soon with more of my work in This skull pattern. I hope you like  this pattern and find it fun to make too.:)

011 (4)That is the end of the Ichigo Adventure:) I hope this Inspires you on your next project.

By the way this pattern is not fully Tested.

So, if you find a problem let me know.:)

I came across this post from {Mommy}Creations heart bracelet it didn’t read it tell after i made this but the picture was so inspiring  i made a rose  from this ideal.

Rose Bracelet/ Necklace

It was an easy thought after seeing the heart bracelet.

Here is what i did for the Rose:

Worst weight yarn Red, and Variegation’s of green.

G hook 4.25 mm

American Terms.

sl st~ slip stitch

Rose bracelet/ necklace

ch~ chain

dc~ double crochet

picot ~ ch 3, in 3rd from hook make a sc or sl st.

I made a rose, with a ch of about 20 and 7 dc for a petal and sc the next st.

(You can use any Rose pattern you like for this.)


Then in my Green i ch 7, dc in 4th ch from hook, ch3, sl st in same st. For a leaf.
For a tiny bump like a thorn make a picot.
/
What i did with the vine was  ch 7, make a leaf, ch 7, picot ,ch 7, to length doubled for around my neck.
Then sl st back to rose for a long loop vine.
Use the end of the loop to loop over the rose  to wear it on the neck, loop it 2 times over the arm before looping over rose.
That is it.
super easy right?  It makes a great choker as well  :)
/
/
/

Rose Necklace/ bracelet
This one was inspired from the one above its just as easy. I got it done in less that a few mins.  So i know you can too .:)  The difference is this :
Tr~ triple crochet


I started with a ch 12, 3 dc in the 3rd ch from the hook.  Work 3 dc each st.

~Amigurumi Turtle~ Baby Shelly

Free Turtle pattern

Meet Shelly, just a baby Turtle.

I got the ideal of making this Baby Shelly, after starting Agent ” T “.

When i got started on Shelly, i got an ideal to make Shelly look like a sailor.

Later, i thought it would be very cute for all Military Branches.
How cute would Shelly look , with an Army Helmet , and Boots?

Or even a set of Goggles and Scarf for the Air Force?
This led me thinking that some one some where would love that ideal so ,

This pattern is free and i hope you love Shelly as much as i do:)

I wanted to share this story with you ~~

Friend commented on your Amigurumi Turtle~ Baby Shelly
 February 1, 2013

I’m going to assume my eight year old granddaughter got onto my ralvery account and hooked this adorable little guy for me. She even printed the pattern and gave it to me. I think its to funny. She likes this so much. She has never done anything like this before. Thank you so much for sharing.

 Friend commented on your Amigurumi Turtle~ Baby Shelly
 February 2, 2013

I wasn’t aware she knew how. Whats so great about it is, she had a brain injury a few years ago which left her impared somewhat. She has trouble wth short term memory and she has a comprehension issue as well as loosing a few years of memories. For her to figure that out on her own was a big enough deal to notify our Nuerolgist. I hope you keep this story for yourself and i totally give you permission to use it how ever you like, even with your pattern if you like. I dont know what to say to you. thank you, NO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATTERN!

Tyvm Friend, for letting me share this info. it’s inspiring and touching to my heart beyond words.

Things like this make the work worth it all:) so i thank you for that it keeps me going.

Bless you, my Friend, your little Grand baby.

Truly up lifting to hear great things happen with a simple little pattern i wanted to share for  Free :)

I only hoped some one would like this little turtle, i never expected more.

This is why i crochet.  What moves you?  If your not Inspired then you should be:)

Amigurumi Turtle~ Agent ” T ”

Agent " T "

My son asked me to make a turtle for him. Keep in mind he is 18 , and loves turtles.

I looked around the web. Didn’t find one  with a free pattern he liked. Found a picture of one. We discussed  how he would want it to look.   First, he wanted certain colors, and fun. I thought he would be  cool as Agent  “T”  with a Hat like Perry from  Phineas & Ferb.  Add a mask and you have a Ninja Turtle  i thought  lol.  Super spy,  Double 00  Turtle:) Turtle in Black .

I was starting to have too much fun thinking about the  possibility’s  with this turtle.

As, i was making it , i got a few ideals i wanted to try.

This spawned  another ideal, to make a baby turtle.

He can be altered in a few ways to make the turtle of your dreams.

There you have it. Finished secret  Agent  Turtle.

If you would like to just skip the bends you can.

I also came up with a spinning eye, it turns with eye lid attached.

Hints:  for a spinning eye, i poked my blunt needle under the eye where the edge of a smile would be,

left a tail at that end, poked under the cotton in head to  the middle where i planned to put the eye.

Drew the needle up threw the middle of the  black eye circle, then back down threw the outer edge of the eye side, to  then link it to a stitch on the head.

like a button on  each side.

  i sewed it threw a stitch on the head then poked it threw the head to the other eye finished it  poked it back threw other side of smile and  then took  my ends and poked them one at a time to the back of the head tied them and hid them back in the head with the hook.

I hope that helps:)

Agent " T "

He could be a super turtle, or any thing you can think up:)

Thank you for your interest in this pattern. Shell:)

I would love to see your Turtle @   http://www.facebook.com/ShellsYarnicles

Made this video slide show. may help show you how i put it together. you might need to stop this video a few times.
