This issue includes five patterns, 10 book reviews, a yarn review of Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic yarn (I adore this yarn!), and a review of Amazing fa-Brick Textile & Fabric Hardener. In addition, the Just-a-Bowl pattern includes a photo tutorial on using the Amazing fa-Brick product to turn the granny doily (or any other doily) into a bowl.
My favorite pattern, and one that took the majority of my time to make, is the Grandma Spiked My Ripple Blanket that takes a granny ripple blanket and adds a spike stitch to it. This makes a very dense pattern that is extremely warm because the usual spaces in a granny stitch are closed up with the spike stitch.
The remaining patterns are a striped beanie (I've already made a total of five of these), a headband crocheted around an elastic hairband, and a headband made to look like a bow.
And here are the direct links to the patterns:
- Grandma Spiked My Ripple Blanket
- Let There Be Stripes Beanie
- Sunny Headband
- Tied in Bows Headband
As usual, all patterns can be downloaded as PDFs and have links to their Ravelry pattern page. In addition, two of them contain symbol charts which can be downloaded separately. They've also been added (or soon will be) to the Pinterest board, Google+ group, and Facebook fan page.
Links to our Facebook fan page, Google+ page, Twitter, and Pinterest board can always be found on the left menu on Crochet Uncut.
Enjoy the patterns and reviews!
