Mini DIY Plant Plots

I’m SO going to try this wonderful DIY craft: Mini DIY Plant Pots as blogged about on Sugar & Cloth. Aren’t they perfect to tuck in here and there on shelves or on your desk?


Great Idea For Unused Scarves

How fantastic is this? I don’t know about you, but I have several unused scarves hanging around in my closet and love this idea for giving them new life.

You just need to start with a large, rectangular scarf that’s very lightweight. Using size 10 crochet thread, you can create a lovely pineapple stitch back panel with straps that will make their way up above the shoulders. I can’t believe I never thought of doing this!

Head over and check out the full pattern with tips at 365 Crochet.

Notes: Do not skip a stitch when ch 1, do when ch 2.

Sizing: Measurements for 22.5 in. head. Sizing starts out with basic bucket increase, so check against your own head. Chart pattern works if you stop at any even row. Still, numbers for size I made…
