How to Crochet Lace Scarf with Flowers Design, Mile a Minute, Crochet Video Tutorial


Hello Crocheting Friends, 

I can't believe it's June already! Where does the time go? I feel like the older I become, the faster time flies by! 

I've been super busy over the last three month as I started working full time outside of home. 

Not only I'm busy with my full-time day job, I've been working hard on my Youtube channel

I now reached 5,000 subscribers! And I was also approved for the advertisement on my channel.  So hopefully, my hard work will start paying soon. 



I am excited to share my most recent project with you! 

I so much enjoyed making this lace scarf with flowers design! I also want to try this pattern with cotton thread size 10 to make delicate curtains. I think it will look lovely! 

This pattern works in long strips. I believe such technique is called mile a minute. 

It was easy for me to show it in a video, but a written pattern would be to complicated to follow. So no written pattern this time, only a video!

And actually, now that I have a Youtube channel, I am considering doing only videos for my free patterns. 

I've shared so many of my free, written patterns on my blog over the last several years. And I often see my patterns being misused, posted on other sites without my permission, etc. 

It's not fair that other people are making money from my work while I struggle to pay my bills. So right now I'm rethinking my crochet business strategy and exploring new ways to monetize my work. 

Wish me luck! :) 




The video tutorial for my Lace Scarf with Flowers Design is available on my YouTube channel

Happy Crocheting!

Beautiful Crochet Lace Stitch for a Baby Blanket, Free Pattern and Video Tutorial



Here is a beautiful lacy stitch for a baby blanket or a scarf! 

The skill level is intermediate. I'd say this stitch is a bit complicated, but I filmed a detailed video tutorial! 

Multiple of 8, plus 3

Row 1: (dc, ch 2, dc2-clustser) all in 3th ch from hook, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch, *skip next 3 ch, (dc2-cluster, ch 2, dc2-cluster, ch 2, dc2-cluster) all in next ch, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch* across to last 4 ch, skip next 3 ch, (dc2-cluster, ch 2, dc2-cluster) all in last ch. 

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in top of 1st cluster, ch 3, dc in next sc (make dc right in the middle of sc, because if you simply make it in the top two loops, the stitches on the right side of your work will be shifted; see my video tutorial for visual help), *ch 3, sc in top of 2nd (middle) cluster of next group of clusters, ch 3, dc in next sc* across, end with ch 3, sc in top of last cluster. 

Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc in 1st sc, *(dc2-cluster, ch 2, dc2-cluster, ch 2, dc2-cluster) all in next dc, sc in next sc* across.

Row 4: ch 6, turn, sc in top of 2nd (middle) cluster of next group of clusters, ch 3, dc in next sc, *ch 3, sc in top of 2nd (middle) cluster of next group of clusters, ch 3, dc in next sc* across.

Row 5: ch 2, turn, (dc, ch 2, dc2-cluster) all in same 1st dc, sc in next sc, *(dc2-cluster, ch 2, dc2-cluster, ch 2-, dc2-cluster) all in next dc, sc in next sc* across, end with (dc2-cluster, ch 2, dc2-cluster) all in 3rd (counting from bottom) ch of turning ch-6. 

Repeat Rows 2-5 for the pattern.

Crochet Rose Granny Square Afghan, Baby Blanket, My Free Pattern and Video Tutorial


This is the first ever granny square afghan that I made! 



I first made a bunch of crochet roses, which I used for squares! 

Then I connected all the squares together using the slip stitch method. I made a simple border of single crochets in two colors - green and pink. 



The written pattern is available on my website 


And I also made video tutorials. 







I hope my pattern and videos will be useful! 

Happy crocheting!
