Celtic Weave Stitch Instructions

I advice watching the video tutorial as it shows how to do this stitch. It is easier to learn by watching the tutorial then trying to make sense of the written tutorial.

This pattern uses US stitch abbreviation.

To crochet a Cable stitch, you must begin with a chain that is multiply by 4+2 and then add 2 chains in the foundation row.

In this example, chain 16.

Row 1. 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, 1 tr in each ch to end. Turning ch counts as first tr. 14 tr all up. Turn.

Crochet Front Post Treble Stitches (FPTR)

Row 2. Ch 3, *sk 2 tr, 1 FPTR around the next 2 tr, go back and crochet 1 FPTR around the 2 trebles you skipped. This creates a crossing over effect*, continue between ** to end. End with 1 tr in the last tr.

Crochet Back Post Treble Stitches (BPTR)

Row 3. Ch 3, 1 BPTR in the next 2 FPTR closest to the crochet hook (they are hiding behind the work), *sk the next 2 FPTR, 1 BPTR in the next 2 FPTR, go back and crochet 1 BPTR in the 2 FPTR you skipped*, continue between ** to end. End with 1 BPTR in last 2 FPTR and  1 tr in last tr.

Repeat 2nd and 3rd row until you have the desired length.

Crochet Mermaid Pattern

Crochet Mermaid Doll Pattern

crochet mermaid doll pattern

This crochet Mermaid is made in a very peculiur manner. Instead of crocheting rows and rounds, I crochet a chainless single crochet cord. The chainless single crochet cord was shaped into the different Mermaid parts and stitched together using a sewing needle. The head, arms, and torso was made this way. The Mermaid tail was created by stitching together yarn that was already folded into loops. This type of yarn is called Loopy Yarn.

Crochet Materials

Crochet hook size 2.0

Crochet yarn: 100 % Acrylic 4 ply in light pink(body), red (hairband and mouth), black (eye), yellow, green (for the bikini), and white(eye). Loopy Yarn for Mermaid tail.

Sewing needle

Scissors

Crochet Mermaid Step by Step.

Begin creating a Chainless SC cord and turn it into a round ball as the image below shows. Create another Chainless SC cord (about 15 scs long) and at the end crochet fingers as follows: ch 2, turn and sl st in last sc, ch 2, turn, and sl st in same sc). Make 2 arms. Crochet torso by folding a long Chainless SC cord into half. Crochet breast by folding a shorter cord the same way. Fasten the cords into place using a sewing needle. Stitch the body parts together.

When you crochet nose, you simple crochet: ch 2, turn, sl st in 2nd ch from hook. Use a sewing needle and stitch it into a ball and attach it to face using sewing needle. Stitch the eyes by creating the eyeball the same way you made the nose. Stitch on black using a sewing needle. Stitch on eyelids. Stitch on a mouth.

Attach hair the same way you would tassels.

Funny Mermaid Fact: The First Mermaid was a Merman! At least according to Terry Breverton’s book: A compendium of Monsters, Myths and Legends.

Crochet Dress with Polish Star Pattern

Crochet Dress Pattern with Polish Star

crochet dress with polish star pattern

This pattern uses US stitch abbreviation.

Crochet Polish Star Pattern is an advanced pattern, due to the weaving of the chain loops to create the Star shapes. The weaving technique will be shown in a video. Follow what I am doing in the video, and you will get through it. Begin in the middle and fold the loops over eachother by folding the right loop over the left loop. You will also pull the below loops unto the loops above. There is no way of writing a satisfying description how to Weave the loops together, only a video will do. This is how I learned this technique.

Crochet Giraffe Amigurumi

crochet giraffe amigurumi free pattern

Free Giraffe Amigurumi Pattern

For some reason, I had this image in my head of a Giraffe wearing a tutu dress and pink booties! This meant of course that I had to make it into a reality. This pattern has been an ongoing project since Christmas and it is now July. For some reason, it took forever to finish. It is the biggest Amigurumi piece I have ever made. I think I will stick to smaller patterns for a while. I did love making it though, and I could finally use up the doll hair I had laying around. The curly doll hair is the icing of this cute giraffe. I also love the fake eyelashes. The head will need to be leaning on something to stay up as the long neck can’t stay upright on its own. The Giraffe is great as a decoration for your home, so give it a go. 

If you like this pattern, please share on Pinterest and Social Media.

If you want to create a smaller crochet giraffe, then I have a few patterns for you that you might like. Both patterns below are miniature patterns. Click on images to get these patterns.
