A while ago, I came up with a special stitch – at least, I didn’t copy it from anywhere, though it may have already existed – the Bar Front Loop Single Crochet. I created some scarves with it: How Deep Is The Ocean, Jean Genie, September, and You’re My Magician.
I shared the shawl with the Sand and Sea Knitting Guild a couple months ago and they asked me to do a workshop on the stitch. Not wanting to waste the time on just one stitch, I decided to change the workshop to a Single Crochet Workshop, showing different types of single crochet and the fabrics they create. As I am not a fan of waste, I am providing the workshop handout here for anyone to download: Download Single Crochet Workshop Handout. That way if one wants to print it out they can, leaving me with a clear conscience and saving a tree.
The workshop will be conducted at the September guild meeting, September 12, 2015 at Saint Andrew’s Lutheran Church; 11555 National Boulevard; Los Angeles, California 90064. Our guild meeting begins at 11:00 a.m. and lasts until 1:00 pm. Guests are welcome, should you like to attend. Send me an email for additional information.
As you can see from the image above, you will achieve a different finished object depending on the color runs in the yarn. I find both very attractive.
With the rebranding of Off da Hook Designs to A Hooker’s World, I have made some changes and one particular change is that the pattern for How Deep Is The Ocean Scarf is no longer available for free. The pattern is available for purchase in the AHW Store or in my Ravelry Store or by following the link above to the patterns page. As with all my patterns:
I condone any realized profit from selling your finished project
I ask that you do not duplicate or copy the pattern for dissemination among your friends, as $1.00 is a nominal fee
If you are on Ravelry, I would appreciate your linking your project to this recipe, so I can send a request to feature your finished object
