FREE CROCHET PATTERN: BRICK STITCH BABY BLANKET



I found this amazing stitch and instantly fell in love. Its simple and creates a wonderful texture. I have a baby shower coming up and of course a lot of yarn laying around so I thought I'd give it a try. It turned out great and worked up rather quickly. I am looking forward to using this stitch for cowls and hats! Below is the free pattern. Give it a try and let me know what you think. As always share your photos.


BRICK STITCH BABY BLANKET

Skill Level: Easy

Materials Needed:                                                       
Yarn: worsted weight yarn.
Hook(s): Size H-8 (5.0 mm)

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
sk = skip
sp = space
st(s) = stitch(es)  

Pattern:
Foundation Row: chain 100 loosely to measure approximately 26 inches. Sc in stitch across, turn.

Row 1: ch 3, 3dc in 1st stitch, *skip 3st, [1sc, ch 3, 3dc] in next stitch* repeat across, end with 1sc in last stitch, turn.

Row 2. ch 3, work 3dc in the sc of the previous row. *[1sc in the space made by ch 3 of previous row, ch3, 3dc] in same ch 3 of previous row* repeat across, end with 1sc in last stitch, turn.

Repeat Row 2 throughout. Continue until the blanket is 26 inches long.


Help/Tutorials:
If you need help figuring out how to do a specific crochet stitch, I would recommend going to Annie’s Catalog. They have a huge selection of videos and picture tutorials that will walk you through the process.

I would love to see pictures of your finished work. Share them on my Facebook:  www.facebook.com/myhobbyshopfanpage

Blog Giveaway: Lexiphilia Print by Wordsilove

I am very excited to bring you this wonderful giveaway sponsored by Kasi from Wordsilove.

A little bit about Kasi:
I am a stay at home mother of four extraordinary kids, a wife to my best friend, a nursing student, a part time photographer and digital designer. I love to create, I love to write, and I love to be inspired! Most evenings find me in front of my computer, playing around in Photoshop or Lightroom, while reruns of The Office or CSI play in the background! :)

About the giveaway item:
Lexiphilia means "lover of words" in Greek. I have always loved words, and always preferred covering my walls with quotes, rather than posters or popular art. Once I realized I could use the same photoshop that I use to edit my photos to create art out of words, I was hooked and Lexiphilia was born!

We are a husband and wife team, who got started making jewelry, which is where the formedbyfire part came in. That led us to making glass beads. Our artistic muse has taken us to many places. She's led us to make paper, to photographic prints, to our book page prints.
By day, I’m an art teacher. My love of art led me to the love of my life, Larry. Twenty years ago, I painted a fish on his business window, and we have been inseparable ever since. By day, Larry is the energy behind all things formedbyfire.
We spend our free time, combing through antique stores, finding vintage books that we transform into art.

Blog Giveaway: Girl's Flower Clip by Flower Me Boutique


I am very excited to bring you this wonderful giveaway sponsored by Marija from FlowerMeBoutique.

A little bit about Marija:

My background is in interior design with client's home projects ranging from NYC, Telluride, San Francisco to Austin. After I had my daughter, my priorities changed and I opted for a more mellow, predictable schedule and not so creative job. Can't help myself, I yearn to make things and need to get the ideas out of my head.

What started out as a fun, simple project of making bows for my daughter to coordinate with her outfits, has evolved into a fresh concept for hair accessories. I've always been inspired by nature, and flowers appealed to the girlie, delicate side of me. After perfecting these hair clip constructions, I wanted to start sharing them with all the other "princesses" and their moms. They have been a big hit with my friends, family, and a local high end shop.

I donate part of my profit to a Christian organization that works worldwide to help raise families out of poverty. Helping the world one little pretty head at a time :)

About the giveaway item:
This is a winner’s choice giveaway! The winner will be able to pick their choice of ONE flower clip from this wonderful shop.
