Sandy's Beach Bag

Summertime means going to the beach, and what is the most important thing to take to the beach? Sunscreen, of course, but you’ll need something to carry that sunscreen in. Sandy's Beach Bag is the perfect accessory for the beach or any other vacation spot.

Parfait Baby Booties




Baby booties are always fun to crochet! Their small size means they work up quickly, and they're great for learning some new techniques like working on the opposite side of the starting chain, working in the round, and decreasing stitches. These Parfait Baby Booties are super cute. They look a little bit like Uggs, don't they?

Click on the photo for Parfait Baby Booties pattern


We've chosen Premier's Parfait yarn for these cute little booties. Parfait is a super soft chenille yarn that comes in 16 colors and prints. New technology makes this a chenille yarn that will not "coil" or "worm", so you won't be spending tons of time untwisting your yarn. Parfait is a #5 bulky weight yarn, which means you're projects will work up quickly when you choose Parfait.

Crocheted Cafe Curtain





Cafe curtains are perhaps the most basic type of curtain there is. Typically a cafe curtain is nothing more than a straight panel hung from loops or rings from a simple curtain rod. Another feature of a cafe curtain is that it usually only covers part of a window.



Basic cafe curtain (image from http://www.womansday.com/home/craft-ideas/diy-home-decor-cafe-curtains-107373



Our Cafe Curtain free crochet pattern consists of a basic panel done in Filet Crochet. The hanging tabs are added to the top of the curtain after the panel is completed. If you're not familiar with Filet Crochet, this project will be a great lesson for you. Filet crochet is really nothing more than crocheting in two types of blocks: an open block and a closed block. Maggie will be teaching you all about filet crochet in the videos.

Our cafe curtain is crocheted using Afternoon Cotton. This yarn is a #3 sport weight that comes in 20 beautiful solid and multi colors. Afternoon Cotton is a light weight 100% Egyptian Giza Mercerized Cotton that is perfect for home decor projects.

Flower Fall Shawl



This Flower Fall Shawl is quickly becoming one of our favorites around the office. Isn't it beautiful? Flower Fall is an intermediate skill level project, mainly because it is a join-as-you-go. No sewing motifs together and weaving ends - we love that.

Click on the photo for Flower Fall Shawl crochet pattern


Premier Yarn's Serenity Garden is perfect for this project. Serenity Garden is a #2 lightweight yarn that is easy care - just toss it into the washer and dryer and you're all set. Saturated colors and unique prints are two of the amazing features of this yarn. The printed yarn does all the color work for you, so you get the result of Fair-Isle type knitting or crocheting without all the bobbins and yarn ends to weave in at finishing. Serenity Garden is great for soft wraps and tops that drape, and throws made with Serenity Garden are especially luscious!

Razzle Dazzle Easter Eggs





 Are you getting ready for Easter? We have already shown you two different Easter baskets, a small one that will hold jellybeans or other small candies, and a larger one that is big enough to hold Easter eggs. Now it's time to make the eggs for your large Easter basket.

You will be making covers for plastic Easter eggs. We have two different patterns for making Easter egg covers. The pattern we will be showing you in the video is for crocheted Easter eggs, and can be found here.




 Our crocheted Easter eggs can be made with several different yarns, including Ever Soft, Hipster, Serenity Chunky (we used Serenity Chunky Sequins for the blue egg shown above) or Afternoon Cotton. The trick is to make the beginning crocheted circle the same size as the opening of the large side of your plastic egg. Crochet hook size is going to depend on what type of yarn you are using, and gauge is not important on this project.

Watch the Right-Handed Video Tutorial:



 
Watch the Left-Handed Video Tutorial:



There is also a pattern for knitting your Easter egg covers that can be found here. Again, you may use any of the yarns mentioned above, and your knitting needle size will depend on what yarn you are using. Whatever yarn and construction method you choose, you will love your Easter egg covers.



If you haven't made your Easter basket yet, you can find out how to make a Serenity Chunky Easter Basket here.

Primo Cutie Bug Cardi

beginning-primo-child-sweater-cardigan

Have you ever tried to make a sweater, but had trouble sewing it together after all of the pieces where completed? This adorable Cutie Bug Cardi sweater, pattern found here, is crocheted in one piece starting from the neckline. This type of garment construction is called top-down with raglan sleeves. A raglan sleeve is simply a sleeve that continues in one piece from the neck of the garment down to the end of the sleeve and does not have a shoulder seam. And because the body of the sweater is worked all at once, you don't have a side seam either! Top-down raglan construction is one of the easiest ways to crochet or knit a sweater. If you've never tried it, here's your chance.

Home Cotton Flower Dishcloth






Dishcloths are a favorite project for many crocheters. There are several good reasons for this. One, dishcloths can be very easy projects, making them great for beginning crocheters. Also, dishcloths can be completed in a very small amount of time, as opposed to other projects that can be very time-consuming. And because they are small, they are great take-along projects. Dishcloths can also have more complicated stitches and patterns, making them an excellent learning tool for more experienced crocheters who are looking to master new skills.




We have an adorable pattern called Spring Flowers Washcloth, pattern found here, that is basically an embellished Granny Square. We've used Home CottonTM for our dishcloth. Premier Home Cotton Yarn is cotton blended with polyester which means projects dry faster, colors stay brighter longer and hand-made projects last longer! This cute floral dishcloth can also be used as a washcloth, or as a springtime decoration for your kitchen or bath.



You will need 3 colors of Home Cotton to make your washcloth, and a size G crochet hook.

Arm Knit Scarf - Starry Night and Starbella Lace

With all of the specialty yarns available today, it's easy to create beautiful fashion scarves or cowls quickly. As a matter of fact, it's so easy we've taught our friend Eddie how to arm knit and he's now making beautiful scarves for his wife!


eddie-arm-knitting-starry-night6-optw

The scarf Eddie is making here uses two of Premier's specialty yarns: Starry Night, our new favorite ribbon yarn, and Starbella Lace, typically used as a ruffling yarn. Starry Night is a wide variegated ribbon featuring bars of silver and gold glitter in a palette of 9 fashion colors. Starbella Lace is a super bulky yarn with all the fashion of the ruffle trend with a delicate lacy edge, and it comes in 12 vivid colors.
When you combine Starry Night in Majesty with Starbella Lace in Thistle, you get this amazing scarf.
