The "Andy" Button Scarf -free crochet pattern-

The Andy Button Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern // by Rescued Paw Designs

How pretty is this?!  At first glance, i thought it was a button cowl, which I love.  But this design gets even better, because it's really a long scarf, that you can make look like a button cowl!  This clever pattern uses ribbing along the entire length to give that nice fitted look, along with end buttons so that you can simply turn it into a cowl, keeping the scarf in place around your neck.  I think I'll be making one of these for myself in the very near future!

  • Yarn needle
  • 340 yards of Lion brand Vanna’s choice yarn in Linen (or any worsted weight (4) yarn.

Fast Blanket Mittens -free crochet pattern-

Do you need mittens, and need them NOW?!  Well, if you have about an hour of time, a ball of super bulky yarn and a big hook, you can have new mittens today!  These mittens work up super quickly, and they are very cozy and warm!  I've been using a lot of this type of blanket yarn lately, for accent pillows for my home and I love working with it.  There's a certain gratification that comes with finishing a project quickly and admiring your work.  I fell in love with this yarn so much for its softness and ease, that I wanted mittens of the same texture.  This is an incredibly easy pattern, only requires one ball of yarn (which will actually make more than one pair of mittens), there are only 21 rounds, and requires basic crochet knowledge.

These mittens also make great gifts! (Christmas is around the corner), and these are a wonderful item to make for charity, as they work up so fast, that you could make several pairs in a day.  To sum it up, they are kind of a "super mitten".

(6sc)

**Note: If you have large thumbs, you can add a st or 2 in the first thumb row, by adding an sc in any (or both) corners where the sc2tog stitches are instead of using sc2tog.  This will make 7 or 8 sc.
