Meet and Make: Julie Huston

Pinterest

This week’s featured Meet and Make designer is Julie Huston. Julie picked up a crochet magazine in the mid 1990’s from a thrift store and taught herself how to crochet from the instructions in the magazine. A new hobby was born and she has not looked back; she has been “hooked” ever since. Julie has many free crochet patterns on our site that we just love so much!

Here is Julie’s Featured Project:

Crocheted Wreath Ornament

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Materials:

  • Green worsted weight yarn
  • Size F crochet hook
  • Pipe cleaner or 5-6 inch ring

Instructions:

If using a pipe cleaner, form to make a ring.

Row 1: sc around the ring until it is completely covered, exact number isn’t that inportant, just as long as the ring is cover

Row 2 and 3: Working in continuous rounds, 3 sc in each sc around. Make sure you marked the beginning of the round.

Row 4, *ch 3, sc in the next stitch* repeat around.Slip stitch in the next stitch. You can finish it off here.

Or..

I added a chain loop of about 50 chains, unfortunately I do not remember exactly how many I did. I made the loop long enough to fit around a door knob.

Embellish the wreath as you see fit.

The pattern and more pictures are found on my blog

    Hi Julie.

    I love your Solomon knot möbius scarf. You say to use “homespun yarn with a bit of sparkle”
    What color(s) did you use & what yarn for the “sparkle”?
    I’ve been trying to color match online (I’m stuck in a rehab facility for several months due to a fall) without success. I’d love to work on this scarf for my daughter while I’m confined toy bed & wheelchair.

    Thanks!
    Joy
