Ever-Popular Throw Design . . . Re-Imagined in New Colors

Our Corner-to-Corner Throw has been around so long that we consider it a classic. It’s a design that is fun to make because you start crocheting at one corner, and keep increasing or decreasing to create the rectangle shape. There are no seams to sew at the end! I think that is one of the main reasons it is so loved. It is also a nice weight and doesn’t have holes to get your toes caught (a real plus for me).

A Complete Beginner’s (and I mean super beginner) Guide to Arm Knitting

By guest blogger Sarah Marland

After interning at Red Heart for 2 ½ months, I finally learned how to knit! I had been wanting to learn ever since I started, but I was nervous about it—it just looked confusing and difficult to me (even though I’m a pretty crafty person). But it’s actually not that hard! The other day, I learned how to arm knit. It’s incredibly easy, takes very little time, and it looks pretty cool once your project is finished. Here’s how I made my first cowl in 20 minutes:

Cro-Shayley makes a Stadium Seat Cover

As I was reading through Bobbie Matela’s, Back to School with Team Spirit blog post, I added a few of the free patterns to My Favorites.The following day I was perusing through the fun stuff at Goodwill and I came across a $2 seat cushion and remembered the Crochet Stadium Seat Cover free pattern I saved so I purchased it. My husband and I became good friends with some Ole Miss fans so I thought it would be nice to make them a seat cover to take to some football games. Sorry Mississippi State and LSU fans…don’t hate me! ;)
