Cable Crochet Hook Case {Free Crochet Pattern}

What crocheter doesn't need a hook case? Chances are, you have a few of them.
I wanted a small case that I could throw a few hooks, a pair of scissors, a small pack of yarn needles, and a tape measure in. Oh, and it had to be pretty.
That isn't too much to ask for, is it? 
I didn't think so either, so I came up with this simple Cable Crochet Hook Case.

#OuiCrochet,Crochet, Free Crochet Pattern, Crochet Hook Case, Crochet Cable,

The case is made in a round, with a simple cable on the front. I closed it with a small flap and button. You could easily forego the flap and put in a zipper or other closing mechanism instead, but I liked the ease of a flap and button.

Seed Stitch Cuff Bracelet {Free Crochet Pattern}

You may remember the Lace Cuff Bracelet that I shared recently. Well, that cuff bracelet reminded me of this very simple Seed Stitch Cuff Bracelet that I made a while back. It is a cute, fashionable bracelet, so naturally, I wanted to share this one with you, too.

#OuiCrochet, Crochet, Free Crochet Pattern, Crochet Seed Stitch Cuff, Crochet Jewelry, Crochet Bracelet,

The seed stitch is very easy. It is just a single crochet and a double crochet made in the same stitch. The seed stitch has a very nice texture to it, and I know it is hard to tell, but there is a strip of gold color in the craft twine that I used that really makes the texture "pop".

Yes. You read that correctly. I used craft twine. It was perfect for this project, and fun to work with. Alternatively, you could use crochet thread, or a fine weight yarn. I do encourage you to experiment with crocheting with the craft twine, though. In fact, I would encourage you to crochet with a variety of materials... embroidery thread, ribbon, that plastic craft thread, wire, etc.
I would love to hear the different things you've crocheted with or would like to try to crochet with. Please leave a comment below to share your thoughts.

Seed Stitch Cuff Bracelet

Supplies:
Size 0 (3.25) crochet hook
Cotton craft twine (I used Gold Shimmer)
3/8inch (9mm) button
Needle & thread to sew button

Pattern:
Ch 12
Row 1: (sc, dc) in the second ch from hook (seed stitch made), [skip 1 ch, (sc, dc) in the next stitch] repeat across. Turn. (12 seed sts)
Row 2: ch 1, skip first stitch, [(sc, dc) in the next stitch, skip 1 st] across. Turn.
Row 3-34: Repeat row 2.
Row 35: Ch 1, slip stitch in first 6 sts, ch 7 (for button hole), slip stitch in the last 6 sts.
Finish off and weave in ends.
Attach button in the center between the 4th and 5th rows.

Arm Warmers {Free Crochet Pattern}

It is hard to think about things that keep you warm when the temperatures outside have been so high, but if you want to get a jump on your cooler weather crochet items, these arm warmers are the way to go! You can crochet quite a few pairs and have them ready as Christmas gifts for your family and friends. The best part is (besides how quickly they work up), they are small. This means that not only do they take up less space while you are saving them, but they won't be draping over you as you crochet in the heat!

#OuiCrochet, Crochet, Free Crochet Pattern, Crochet Arm Warmers, Arm Warmers, Crochet Gifts,


Arm warmers are a stylish and functional addition to your wardrobe. They are perfect for chilly days, especially when you are indoors and don't want to wear your coat. You may want to make a few pairs: one to keep in your desk or locker at work, one for your car, and another for home.

Arm warmers make great gifts and they are sure to be a hit in your craft booth or boutique.

Fiber Tuesdays #20 {Link Party}

Are you ready to party on Fiber Tuesdays? Link up with us, and invite your friends! It is always inspiring to see what you have been working on!


Link Party, Fiber Arts Link Party, Fiber Tuesdays

The heat has been making its presence known, so I have been working with cotton yarn, and making smaller projects lately. Hopefully my two projects will inspire you to put your hair back and relax with a cold drink!
I am thinking of adding an occasional crochet along here on Oui Crochet. I am getting my toes wet with my Scraps of Yarn Water Bottle Carrier (below). It is an unofficial crochet along, but if you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen me share my idea. I am inviting you all to join me, and make the water bottle carrier with whatever yarn combos you have or like, then share pics with me on Facebook and/or Instagram. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

 Just click a pic to view.
