How to Crochet: Invisible Join

When you make any crochet project, like a round coaster, a granny square or anything, usually you close it up with a slip stitch at the end. That's ok to finish in that way, but you can see the end because there is an obvious unevenness in that place. So, here is the technique that you can use to prevent this from happening: the invisible join. Is a very simple trick but it'll be a big difference because it'll give a very professional finish to your crochet projects.

Chunky Scrunchie – FREE Crochet Pattern

I don't know what happened, but the scrunchies are back! When I was at the school, at least in my country (Chile), it wasn't very fancy to use a scrunchie, it was the opposite, but for me, they were the best because I've always had a lot of hair, so a big scrunchie was perfect, just not fashionable. But know... WOW, the '90s are back, and I love it!!! So, now I can make my scrunchies and do them how big as I want.

FREE Printable Tags for Crocheters and Knitters

Have you been in the situation when you are selling your products, and the people ask you about the care instructions for that? As a crocheter, I been in that situation a lot of times. The people usually don't know how to take care of handmade products, and they are worried because they don't want to ruin the unique piece. Because of that, I thought it was a good idea to make a tag to mark and inform your clients of the care instructions of every crocheted/knitted item.

Bunny in Dino’s Pajamas – Free Crochet Pattern – Add-on

Last time, I told you about my new amigurumi pattern, the bunny in pajamas, and I was pleased with the result, but after looking at him for a while sitting in my desk, I asked myself, "Why not brighten this pattern even more?" So, a couple of minutes after thinking about it, I knew it! It had to transform the pajama from a simple one to a dinosaur, and I did it right away!

Reusable Face Scrubbies – Free Crochet Pattern

I know in this “pandemic” time, a lot of us aren't using makeup in our houses, but that doesn’t mean we are not doing skincare routines. In fact, for me, this moment was right to commit to a night face routine. I’m very strict with my morning face routine, but at night I’m just lazy, so I decided to start with something simple, just washing my face every night, and after some weeks I noticed that you need a little help with that, so I made this face scrubbies.

How to Crochet: Puff Stitch

The puff stitch used to be confused with the bobble stitch or popcorn stitch, and it can actually happen, and it will continue happening because people change the name depending on where they come from or who wrote the pattern.
The important thing to know is how to distinguish according to the way they are made because even though they are similar, the finish in our project is a lot different.

Hello, and welcome to my new blog!

I'm very happy with this new beginning. I've been working very hard at making a new brand for my shop. I started eight years ago with my old shop "Hina Palitah", and it was ok but now it no longer represents me, so I needed a change, and here there is Nightly Crafter Shop.
