So, what are you guys making? I’ve been having no go for much of anything and thus have not gotten any more done on my project.
I have gotten some work on the cloak done since I posted last, but not much. Seems I just can’t motivate myself to crochet. I have no idea where the pictures I took went to. So, I’ll have to get around to taking some more so I can post them. Maybe I’ll have a day off soon that doesn’t have a full agenda. Never seems the case, but I always hope.
You can buy the materials for this pattern here: Cube in Tones | Red Heart. It’s kind of a neat idea. Red Heart has this for a lot of it’s patterns.
Cube in Tones
Create your own four-part harmony with four different shades of yarn! This crocheted ottoman cover is the perfect way to add warmth and color to your surroundings. Or you can stuff it and have a giant cube pillow!
Designed by Tracie Barrett
Measures 14.5″ x 14.5″
Gauge 13 stitches in 4″ and 11 rows in 4″ using half double crochet. Recommended to use an I hook, but use the one that gets your gauge.
Stuff You Will Need
Recommended yarn: RED HEART® Super Saver®. 2 skeins 707 Pink Tones (A), 1 skein each 629 Green Tones (B), 1 skein 546 Purple Tones (C), and 1 skein 847 Blue Tones (D).
The squares are stitched separately and then stitched together. Thus, you will also need a yarn needle.
A, B, C, D = color A, B, C, D; ch = chain; hdc = half double crochet; mm = millimeters; sc = single crochet; st(s) = stitch (es); * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated;  = work directions in brackets the number of times specified.
(Make 2 with A and 1 each with B, C, and D) Ch 46. Row 1 (Right Side): Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across; turn – 45 hdc. Rows 2-37: Ch 2 (does not count as st), hdc in each hdc across; turn. Row 38: Ch 2, hdc in each hdc across; do NOT turn but pivot to work Edging.
Ch 1, working down length, * [sc in each of next 4 row-end sts, 2 sc in next row-end st] 7 times, sc in last 3 row-end sts, ch 1 *, working across foundation ch, sc in each ch across, ch 1; repeat from * to * once more; sc in each hdc across Row 38, ch 1; join with a slip st to first sc. Fasten off.
Join panels as shown in diagram: with right sides together, join yarn in corner st and sc through back loops of both squares matching st for st.
With the D panel as the top of cube, wrap the tops of the A, B, A panels around to form a cube. Join panels as before around 3 sides of the D panel and then down last side between the A and C panels to form a cube. Turn right side out.
With right side facing, join D to bottom edge of cube in any stitch; ch 1, sc in each st and each ch-1 around; join with slip st to first sc. Fasten off. Weave in all ends.
I’m at the IOCDF conference and thus have no been doing any crochet. Once I get home and catch up on my sleep, I will be grabbing up that yarn.
Because life is so busy for me, I am changing the way that I will be working with this site. I’m not going to be making daily posts. That just isn’t working. Instead, I will be making posts about once a week and they will be reflecting what ever my current project is. If I find a pattern or comic that I like I will still share those, but not as often. I’ll continue to post tips and tricks as well, but these will likely come when I’m not working on a project or when I think there is something in the current project that would be helpful to those still learning the craft. However, these aren’t going to be things that I go looking for any more. I’m hoping that this will give the site more focus. And this will give me more time in my life which has been (and likely will continue to be) a high premium as late.
