I like reality shows. I like Betsey Johnson. I’m somewhat familiar with the ups and downs of her business. I’m definitely tuning into this!! XOX Betsey Johnson premiers tonight T 8pm on the Style Network (which is Channel 235 for me on DirecTV)! I think it’s kinda neat it premiers on Mother’s Day, cuz it looks like her daughter Lulu will also be on the show!
I’ve decided to try this thing. I was going to post a new pattern in my Etsy shop, but FIRST, I’m gonna post it here for free. For 48 hrs. Commence Crochet!!! (p.s. if you find any booboos or confusing spots, please let me know!)
Small print time! This crochet pattern is intended for personal use. Please do not distribute or sell this pattern, or sell finished items made from this pattern without my permission. Thank you!
Mother’s Day is only a few days away, but you still have time to DIY something special!
When I needed some emergency help in proof-reading my Asparagus Pen Cozy pattern, Kim came to the rescue and then also suggested that the pattern could be used to create lavender flowers. I loved this idea, since my mom loves lavender, so I decided to make a crochet lavender bouquet for her… of pen cozies! (Dad, don’t tell Mom!)
What You’ll Need:
my Asparagus Pen Cozy crochet pattern at Michaels.com. In the pattern, I refer to working a Leaf, but they left out the part where I explained how to work a leaf! Regardless, for my lavender flowers, I changed the leaf a tiny bit. To work a lavender leaf: Ch 3, sk 1st ch, 1 sc, 1 sl st. Done! I also worked a shorter green stem and a longer purple top than for the asparagus spear.
small amount of worsted weight yarn in Green
small amount of worsted weight yarn in Purple
regular ball point pens
optional: small terra cotta flower pot (the green one I used is biodegradable)
dried beans or pebbles to fill the flower pot
The particular yarns I used were just from my stash. I picked 2 shades of Purple.
