Crochet, where have you been all my life?


I got a simple dc pattern from one of the ladies in my charity group, and this was a great way to use up all those little golf-ball-sized leftovers. And they crank out quick, in about 40 minutes or so each.

I was a woman possessed, figuring out color combinations so I could use every last inch of the yarn.


As requested, here's the pattern.

With F or G hook and baby yarn, chain 4.
Row 1: 15 dc in fourth chain from needle (first 3 chains counts as 1 dc): 16 dc. Connect with slip stitch (on this and at the end of every row)
Row 2: 3 chains, *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next, rep from *
Row 3: 3 chains, 1 dc in same stitch, * 1 dc in next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch, rep from *
Row 4: 3 chains, 1 dc in same stitch, *1 dc in next 3 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch, rep from *
Row 5: 1 dc in each dc,
Row 6-9: repeat row 5

Could you please post the pattern or email it to me? My mom and I have lots of leftover yarn from different projects. She usually knits her hats, but is looking for a crochet pattern.

Told ja! crocheting is soooo much faster. and yeah, baby hats or the bags for wheelchairs/walkers use up all the ends and bits.

Someone teach me to crochet. I'm still cheat knitting (looming) little hats when I can, but I'd love to learn to crochet. Knitting with two needles ain't my gig, but maybe, just maybe, I can crochet. I can make a chain. In one direction. Can't turn and come back.
