Crochet Mason Jar Lantern I love the look of mason jars! So, I created this Crochet Mason Jar Lantern out of Size 3 cotton crochet thread and a pretty lacy crochet stitch. Can you tell which stitch it is? It is the Solomon’s Knot! At first glance this stitch looks complicated but it really isn’t that difficult to do.

Two Color Crochet Baby Blanket

Two Color Crochet Baby Blanket This Two Color Crochet Baby Blanket is easy to make with basic crochet stitches and color-changing yarn. The gradual color changes of one yarn along with the constant color of the other yarn make for a beautiful and unique look. The secret to this look is in the combination of stitches and the yarn used. Would you believe that even though the color changes every row, there are only about 10 ends to weave in?![Read more]
