 Playing with a rug idea... 
August 17, 2016

I found this Rug Pattern a while back and I have been playing around...do I want to crochet it in 1 color, 3 colors, should I have many roses to sew together, or one big rug/ one big rose... 
I will keep you posted!  Check out the pattern here!



Small Brain Skein Project Ideas

- Shirani Straker
Drop Stitch Cowl
Ribbed Cowl

Supplies:

1 Small Brain Skein

Size 19 needles, 24" circulars

 

Cast on 78 sts

Join in the round.

Knit 2 rounds

Next round:

When knitting all the stitches in the next round wrap the needle twice (instead of once like you normally would), then finish knitting the stitch.  You will have an extra loop on the right hand needle. Do in each stitch all the way around.

Next round:

Knit one loop of each stitch, dropping the other loops (as you knit to them).  This will give you a long stitch.

Knit 4 rounds

Next round: 

When knitting all the stitches in the next round wrap the needle twice (instead of once like you normally would), then finish knitting the stitch.  You will have an extra loop on the right hand needle. Do in each stitch all the way around.
