Featured Member Crochet: December 23

Good evening from Starting Chain. It’s been so much fun to see the photos of all the wonderful crochet projects that our readers have been sharing with us. The Christmas ones especially have been a delight to see. We’re going to take a bit of a break from showing Christmas crochet right now and, instead, look at some wonderful works that can be used or worn for a very long time. They include a classy throw, a arty scarf, an award winning dress and a Bengal cat….

Thanks to everyone who has shared their work. As a community, we inspire each other in crochet…one chain and one stitch at a time.

from Jill Marcengill:Finally finished my big fancy scarf. This was such a fun project! I think I might make a lighter weight one in Pastel colors for Spring.”

from Mary Dennison: “Christmas Gift to my sister. Throw sized, done in Super Saver Cornmeal color. I did not join the way Pricilla does, just a slip stitch join with my own edging done on it.”

Mary also writes that the pattern comes from Priscillascrochet.net. The link is: https://priscillascrochet.net/MatelasseBuy.html. She adds, “Even though this looks amazingly hard it was one of the easier patterns that I’ve ever done. (in case a newbie needs encouragement to try something difficult looking.”

from: Debbie Delano: “This won second place in 2009 at a local Grange Fair My favorite project. The bows on the arms are from Christening outfit I was christened in.”

from: Kimberly Ann Near: “Christmas sweater for Thor, my Bengal cat. I didn’t have a pattern, exactly, since it is custom fit… I followed this though for sizing: https://adoginasweater.blogspot.com/2011/02/dog-sweater-tutorial.html#.Urae7LSjE8BThe great thing is, it is just loose enough that he can escape from it if he works it just right! 🙂 Merry Christmas!”

This is darling!

Thanks to everyone who loves crochet, is creative and who shares both! It makes for so many smiles!
