Crochet Patterns from the Outside In!

Crafts March 12, 2017

crochet this outside in (

Does it ever feel like you’ve run out of projects and patterns to try, and you feel like you need a little bit of a challenge? Do you like unraveling the mysteries of crochet patterns? If so, you might consider attempting a little bit of sleuthing and re-working patterns that come in other languages.

This Polish Star crochet pattern from a Russian baby blog might be just the thing to pique your interest. And of course, the rest of us who wish we had an English version of this pattern would love it if you posted the results! The Polish Star may look complicated, but from the tutorial video I watched, it might not actually be that difficult.

The stitches look simple enough, it’s the joining and working around the color scheme that seem to make it look complicated or detailed at the end. It’s a gorgeous pattern, which I’m sure could be cobbled together from a few other patterns, like a star pattern and a hot pad.

What’s unique about this pattern is that it’s crocheted from the outside in – you begin the pattern by creating the edges and then slowly work your way up to the star in the middle. Which means the beginning of the pattern would be relatively simple.

If you’re curious about this Polish Star pattern and want to try your hand at either translating the video’s pattern from its original language into English, or if you’re intrigued by the video and want to write out your own pattern based on your experience creating a Polish Star, you can find the video tutorial at Baby Blog.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
