Sewing Together Crochet Motifs

Recently I filmed this VIDEO on how to put together this super cute bag, and in the video I promise a Blog post photo tutorial on how to sew together the motifs in more detail.
Yay! Here it is! ❤️❤️
Begin with your motifs, scissor, yarn needle and yarn (use a yarn that is closest to the yarn you used in your crochet, I used white to show off the stitches)

 Check out the corresponding stitches..........................

Flip over your motifs, Wrong side up!

Take your yarn and needle and go through your first two stitches.......

Create a knot..... However you like...........

Now go from one side to the other.......

Do not cross over your work, Side to side............

Should be looking like this about.....Now..............

Keep going...............

DONE!! Yay! Good Job! That wasn't bad, Right?                                  

Now admire your beautiful crochet work...................                                     

Gorgeous! Now move on to the next one :)

Thank you all so much for reading my blog, watching my videos and supporting me!
Have a lovely crochet day.

Four Corner Virus Poncho


Hello everyone! I've finally finished the Four Corner Crochet Virus Poncho!! Yay! It has been one of those projects that I've been bumping to the side to make room for other works in progress, but now its done and so is the video tutorial. You can check that out HERE
Pattern NOW available!! It comes in three sizes, small medium and large.
My Ravelry HERE

This red or cranberry poncho is made with Red Heart with Love Yarn. It is a little bit chunky in my opinion, but still lovely, warm and so soft!  I used an H 5.00mm crochet hook and 5 of the 350 yard skeins. If you are going to make this poncho with the same kind of yarn I suggest getting 6-7 skeins just to be on the safe side. I am rather short (5.2) so I didn't have to make it very long.  This poncho can be very very long if you like!
Just keep building!

Now on to my pink variegated Poncho with a cowl style collar.....................

This is my FAVORITE! The yarn is very soft and a lighter yarn, still a worsted weight, but defiantly not as thick as the Red Heart.
So this lovely pinkness is Lion Brand Ice Cream Yarn. It comes is so many colors and I want to use them all for this project! :) This is Strawberry.
I used a 4.25mm Hook and about 6 of the 394 yard skeins. I made my cowl collar with 20 rows in front and back post half double crochet.

The lighter yarns make your poncho much more flowing. I also LOVE the super cozy cowl collar.
Snuggle into that on a rainy or snowy day with a good book or a crochet project and I'll promise happiness!

I hope you all enjoyed my YouTube Video. Please check it out if you haven't seen it yet :)

Have a lovely crochet day, Jonna
