PATTERN: Prayer Squares

About a year ago I crocheted a few prayer squares and donated it to a fellow CreateCrochet team member. She then sold them at a Relay for Life event to raise money. The items that she did not sell were donated to a local hospital.

Prayer Squares - pink

Prayer Squares

This is a fantastic way to use up your scrap yarn. Have fun with combining colors. If you make enough squares you can attach them to make a scrap happy afghan.

The idea behind these squares is that the person making them is praying while working on them. So the person receiving the square can be touched and blessed by your prayers.


Prayer Squares - 1


Materials:
Small amount of worsted weight yarn
Crochet Hook Size 5 (H) - or whatever size your comfortable with

Abbreviations/ Special Stitches:
Hook = HK
Chain = CH
Stitch = ST
Single Crochet  = SC
Puff Stitch = PS: YO, insert hook in next stitch, yo, pull through and bring yarn up to height of rest of stitches (3 loops on hook), YO, insert hook in SAME stitch, yo, pull through and bring yarn up to height of rest of stitches (5 loops on hook), YO, insert hook once again into the SAME stitch, yo, pull through and bring yarn up to height of rest of stitches (7 loops on hook).

Instructions:
Chain 12
Row 1: sc in second ch from hk and in each ch across. ch 1, turn (11sc)
Row 2: sc in each of next 3 sc, puff st in next sc, sc in each of next 3 sc, ch 1, turn
Row 3: sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 4-9: repeat rows 2 &3
Row 10: *sc in 1st sc, puff st in next sc, sc in next sc*, repeat to end
Row 11: sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 12-14: repeat rows 2 & 3
Row 15: sc in each sc across

Once your square is done you can use a single crochet stitch around to create a neat border.
If you have any questions regarding this pattern please let me know.

If you try this pattern I would love to see how it came out. Feel free to share your pictures with me.

Other Stuff:
I would very much like it if this pattern is used for charity and personal use only.
Please do not sell my pattern in part or whole.

CottageCarries Blog Giveaway

I am very excited to bring you my very first giveaway sponsored by Rachel from CottageCarries.

A little bit about Rachel:

Well, I am a stay-at-home mom of an amazing little boy. I am one of those mommies with extra time on my hands. So I wanted to start a hobby, one that I would love and be able to do when I wasn't chasing my little boy around. And it would also be a plus if I could make some extra moo-la too. So I tried painting and other hobbies, but I just was not passionate about them. My husband kept encouraging me to find that one thing that would make me happy, that one thing that I would keep doing and doing and never quit. PURSES! It just popped in my head. I started reviving vintage purses, and then I was reading a purse blog and got inspired to make framed clutches. Wah-la!

 

This giveaway will be a winner’s choice! The winner will be able to pick their choice of either a lovely Coin Purse OR a wonderful Tissue Holder!

Funky Stripe Scarf Free Pattern

After completing a custom order I had some left over yarn. I decided to play around with the leftover yarn and see what I could come up with. It was my plan to try a plaid type design but it didn’t come out the way I had pictured it. But I think it’s nice and funky! It’s a really easy pattern than anyone can do so I thought I’d share. Now I don’t normally write patterns for anyone other than myself so if you don’t understand something let me know. A picture of the scarf I created is at the bottom of this blog.

Funky Striped Scarf: I used Worsted Weight yarn & a H hook – but you can use whatever works for you.

Scarf
Ch 202
Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook, *ch1, skip 1ch, dc in next ch* repeat from * across end with dc in the last ch, turn
Row 2: ch 3 (will count as first dc), *skip ch, dc in next dc* repeat from* across end with dc in the last ch, turn
Repeat row 2 to make scarf as wide as you want.

Weaving
Pick two or more colored yarn you would like to use to weave into your scarf. Measure and cut two strands of yarn. The length should be about 6inches longer than the scarf. Take the two strands of yarn and weave it through the “holes” (made by the chains) of the scarf. There is no right or wrong way to do this. Just use your imagination and make it as funky as you want!!
Enjoy!!!
