sneak peek.

My husband bought me a new thermos, soooo of course I had to crochet a thermos cozy. I seriously can't even stop myself! Originally I had no plans of writing up a pattern, but once the cozy was completed, and I liked how it turned out, I wanted to share. Plus, I figured that if I wanted a cozy for my thermos then someone else might want one too.

 
The crochet pattern for this cozy should be ready sometime this week.

new crochet pattern - post stitch dishcloth sampler by tara schreyer.



SKILL LEVEL: Easy

This pattern is for a set of 3 different dishcloths that allow you to practice your post stitches.  While each cloth uses similar stitches each has a unique look as illustrated in the pictures. Careful consideration was given to the stitches as well so that the dishcloths are completely reversible, providing texture on both sides.

The pattern calls for one 123 yard ball of Knit Picks Cotlin DK (70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen) per dishcloth, but any DK weight (3) cotton can be substituted.  Each cloth measures 9" x 9" using the suggested weight of yarn but any size can be made as the pattern provides the multiple needed to change the size.

The 3 patterns use a variety of simple stitches but concentrate on post stitches.  If you are not familiar with front /back post double crochets or front/back post treble crochets here is your opportunity to practice!!  Here is a helpful tutorial on post stitches to get you started - http://knotsewcute.blogspot.ca/2011/06/how-to-work-post-stitch-in-crochet.html

finished project - Spring Bunny

I fell in love with this pattern design, Spring Bunny, from Josephine Wu and I just had to make it. She was so much fun to work on.  She got cuter and cuter with every step and piecing her together became quite addicting.

This little bunny has made her way to the Dominican Republic, into the hands of my sweet little niece.  Aren't the two of them precious together? I think she likes her :)




Here is Spring Bunny enjoying the warm sunshine at a resort, overlooking the pool.  Is it possible to be jealous of a stuffy?? 




Have a wonderful weekend everyone and don't forget to check out Josephine Wu's collection of cute crochet patterns for yourself.  You will find her designs on Etsy, Craftsy, and Ravelry.  Enjoy!!
