Starry Night Bauble Necklace



Premier® SpangleTM is the perfect yarn for making jewelry and accessories. But did you know that you can combine it with Starry Night® to make even more beautiful jewelry? We've combined these two favorite yarns to make this gorgeous Bauble Necklace, pattern found here




Starry Night is a number 5 bulky weight ribbon yarn that comes in 9 beautiful colors. We've used it in the past for arm knitting, where we also combined it with other yarns. For the Bauble Necklace, Starry Night comprises the actual bauble or puff stitches. Spangle is then used to crochet the border around the baubles and to make the button closure. You can make the necklace as long or short as you would like. You can also make a bracelet!

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.

Suede Circles California Dreamin' Vest

For many of us, this winter has been brutal, and we're ready for warm weather. This California Dreamin' Vest, pattern found here, will have you dreaming of sunshine and a life on the west coast with this long and groovy crocheted vest.

suede-circles-vest-crochet-pattern-free-optw

This retro vest is crocheted using Premier Suede Circles, jewelry yarn at its newest...perfect for creating casual jewelry and accessory items as well as projects to give your home sparkle. This yarn has a bulky suede-like texture and comes in a variety of color blends. While it is considered to be a jewelry yarn, it also works well in fashion pieces like this vest.

This project is relatively easy to do. The California Dreamin' Vest is a great project for those who are learning to crochet. The daisy chain motif at the bottom of the vest adds interest and is a bit challenging to new crocheters. However, the rest of the vest is very easy, consisting of chain 1, double crochet repeats.The vest is made in three panels and then sewn together at the shoulders and underarms. Let's watch the video and see how it's done.
