99 Days of Crochet - Day 89 Stand-Out Posts

This stitch is quite simple, but I really like it. This would be another great candidate for a scarf or afghan.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Medium Purple yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 88 Interruption

I really like the colors I chose for this pattern. It called for front post double crochets, but those made the whole square curl too much (I did them for the first three rows), and triple (double treble) crochet was too tall. Instead, I switched to a half triple stitch that was exactly the right length.

Instructions for half triple (double treble) stitch:
Yarn over twice. Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull through two loops. Yarn over, pull through remaining three loops on hook.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Petal Pink, Turqua, and Medium Purple yarns with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 87 Shell Spires

This stitch is fairly boring. It's not very unique except for the very tips of the "spires," for which I had no idea what the instructions were saying so I had to improvise a bit. They didn't turn out very good but the book's picture doesn't look any better so I'd say it was a success overall.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Carrot yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 86 Boxed Clusters

I quite like this stitch, and I'm glad I used yellow yarn; the clusters look a lot like bananas! This is a pretty light stitch so it would make a good summer scarf, and it's simple enough for anyone to do.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Bright Yellow yarn with a J hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 85 Bricks

This is a simple pattern and pretty similar to some others in the book, but still nice. I decided to use two bright contrasting colors this time, instead of matching colors or something with white. I really like it when a square turns out nice and flat and rectangular.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Bright Yellow and Caron One Pound Royalty yarns with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 84 Snug as a Bug

I have to say, this stitch is very... interesting. Perhaps pink was not the best color for this stitch, but the book's demo used brown yarn so it was impossible to see what the pattern was before I started.

I used Lion Brand Pound of Love Pastel Pink yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 83 Full Bloom

I actually quite like how this turned out. It didn't curl up, and didn't take forever to work up because it's in half double crochet. This color was a bit difficult to photograph with the popcorn stitch, but it looks nice in person.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Pumpkin yarn with a K hook.
