I just finished my daughter’s Christmas gift and would like to publish the pattern on the blog for Thanksgiving. If you’re interested in testing the pattern, please join my Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/875538646117910/. Lately I’ve been working with Bernat blanket yarn quite a bit, and this pattern is a pillow shaped like a ranch dressing bottle. The pillow is crocheted using Bernat Blanket Yarn, and the vegetables that embellish the label are crocheted with worsted weight yarn. This would make a fun gift for that family member who dips everything they eat in ranch dressing. Every family has one!
We’re still in 100-degree weather in San Antonio, but I’m still in a Halloween mood. This week I will be publishing three different designs for chair socks to get your dining room ready for Halloween. Today’s pattern is a ghost chair sock, which will be followed by Frankenstein’s monster and a spider.
The ghost chair sock takes only 11 yards of white yarn and takes just a few minutes to crochet. Eyes and mouth can be painted on, embroidered with black yarn, or glued on with felt. Grab your scrap basket and make up a few in one evening.
