Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

Five point flower accent

Does the purse, hat, dress, or blanket you just made need a little extra something?? Here is a great five point flower accent that works up really quickly and can add just the perfect little something to any finished project. I used it to accent my sunhat (to be released soon).



If your project needs a little accent this is the perfect one! 

Five point flower accent


Materials
H (5 mm) hook
Worsted weight yarn
Yarn needle

Abbreviations
Ch - chain
Dc - double crochet
Hdc - half double crochet
MC - Magic circle (This can be substituted by ch 3, joining into a loop by sl st to first ch. You will then work into the ring just created.)
Sc - single crochet
Sl st - slip stitch

Special Stitch
Picot - ch 3, sl st to first ch.

Directions
Round 1: Create MC, 10 sc in MC, join with sl st to top of first sc. (10 sc)

Round 2: Ch 10, sl st to next sc, *sl st in next sc, ch 10, sl st in next sc,* repeat *to* around. (5 ch 10 spaces)

Round 3: *(sc, hdc,13dc, hdc, sc) in ch 10 sp, sl st betwen prev ch 10 space just worked and next ch 10 space.* repeat *to* around. Change to accent color, if desired, on last sl st. (5 petals)

Round 4: Sc next 9 sts, *picot, sc in same st as last sc, sc next 17 sts,* repeat *to* around, sc in same st as last sc, sc next 8 sts, join with sl st to first sc.

Break yarn weave in ends that you will not be using to attach to your projects and attach five point flower accent to the project of your choice.

Owl Dish Scrubbie

Here is the window dressing promised in the Scrubbie Teaser Post from a couple weeks ago! How freaking adorable are these little owls???? I was so excited when my friend came to me with this idea! I approached Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and asked her what she thought about me linking to her post and I was soooo glad that she was ok with it! Look how cute these are!!!!! 
Alright, so step one is going to be to complete the scrubbie from the previous post, found HERE. Once you have completed that you can follow along with the rest of the pattern here:

Notes You can put a scrubbie in front, or in back or in both places. However you think it will work best! I have completed one owl with the scrubbie in the front (the orange an…

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!!
Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

If you are a member of pretty much any crochet group on social media I'm betting by now you have heard of or seen the new planned pooling argyle craze. To catch you up in case you have no idea what I am talking about: color pooling with yarn is what happens when you work with a variegated yarn and the colors either seem to group together or form distinguishable patterns within your finished item. I'm sure you've made a hat or and somehow the green in the variegated yarn always seems line up or something similar. Planned pooling is basically planning ahead of time to make your variegated yarn come together in a way that creates a …
