Hello everyone.  I know it has been a while since I have posted anything.  My life has been really hectic lately.  I still crochet on a regular basis, but keeping up with my boys has left little time for my blog.  I'll try to get back in the swing of things so bare with me.

Hectic

Gosh it's been a hectic month!!  So, I had decided to make a new branch called Hook and Purl, since I knit also.  I'm thinking it was a bad idea.  I've already got almost 1000 fans on my Facebook page, and now I'm having to start all over again. Ugh.. I still knit, but I'm not near as good with it as I am with crochet.  I can't make a hat or beanie to save anything.  It's really frustrating because in retrospect knitting is far easier that crochet.  I haven't done much of either one lately.  I guess I've just been really lazy.  I'm not sure what's been going on.  Anyways, one of my last projects is a hat I made...

Easy wedding garder

Easy wedding garder 
Caron simply soft party yarn
Lion brand fetticcini yarn( or other stretchy)
Size N hook

Start by measuring around the leg, if you don't know, guess about how big the person is compared to you.  The stretchier the material, the better, to accomply  for error. * I do not recommend elastic, from personal experience*
With stretchy: measure, cut 1/4" longer than needed. Over lap ends and simple stitch sew( doesn't have to be pretty, but try to be straight), I did this on both sides of the overlap.
With Caron: tie your slip knot onto stretchy, single crochet while looping over the stretchy.
2 rows of single crochet or 1 row half double crochet, however thick you wish.
* I'd stay within 5 rows*
You may choose ruffles: 2xsc in 1, sc 2, 2xsc in next, repeate.
Finish with slip stitch.
Weave ends in, or make a simple flower by : chain 3, slip stitch( random) 1 around, chain 3, slip stitch 2
