How to do a Magic Ring for Crochet - Video Tutorial

Magic Ring - Basic Technique for Crocheting in the Round


I am over the moon excited to be releasing my first ever You Tube Video!

croceht video tutorial

Yes that's right, I now have a You Tube Channel The Apple Tree Crochet (follow the link to subscribe). I will be posting video tutorials on how to; crochet/knit techniques and stitches as well as free patterns. 

My husband is a super handy, super techy, super great guy! He spent all weekend helping me set up a studio in our basement for recording videos and taking photos. 

It's not the fanciest set up, but I love it.

Having somewhere permanent to work is SO much better then setting everything up only to have to pack it all away every time I want to take a photo or make a video of my knitting or crochet creations. 

I have so many ideas, patterns, creations, tricks and tips that I have learned/developed over the years that now I can begin to share more frequently and with ease. 

Look out world, it's time to create!

Crochet Chair Socks Free Pattern

How to Crochet Chair Socks, Free Pattern I am excited and a little nervous to be writing this blog post. I have wanted to blog and share my patterns and newly learned knowledge for crocheting for the longest time now,but the idea was kind of overwhelming for me. Where do I start? What do I write about? Will people like it? Will it be useful if there is already information exactly like it on the world wide web?

Ugh! So much overthinking!

No more overthinking for this gal.....okay I will probably still think about it way to much and for the first few posts I will probably write something and delete it 100 times, but at least I am doing it.

I will be posting about current projects, interesting information that I have gathered through various sources and products that I have tried and liked or not liked.

One of the many projects that I currently have on the go is......you guessed it. Chair Socks. A friend messaged me a picture of some chair socks that her cousin saw and liked and asked i…

Too Cute Washcloth and Scrubby All-In-One

Crochet Scrubby - Free Pattern

Crocheted washcloths are a timeless piece. 
I remember my grandmother making washcloths by the dozen. As soon as she would get one made, someone would come along and scoop it up. 
I myself, have made many different washcloths and scrubbies and have never been left with one to spare. 
I was wandering through the yarn isles at Michaels the other day (always a dangerous idea), when I spotted scrubby yarn. 



I stopped dead in my tracks and did a double take. WHAT?! Scrubby yarn! YES PLEASE!

I had no idea what I was going to do with the scrubby yarn, but I NEEDED it! 
Later that evening, I was trying to decide what kind of scrubby I wanted to make with my new scrubby yarn.
 I like using scrubbies for tough to wash dishes and washcloths for the rest. Too bad I couldn't get an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo...…..Wait  a minute, I'm the maker, I can make an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo. 


For my all-in-one washcloth and scrubby design I …

Easy and Quick Mother's Day Gift

Easy 20 minute Mother's Day Gift!



Oh and did I mention it is also inexpensive.

Time is of the essence in my household. I just recently relocated and have spent the last month moving, unpacking and getting my family settled into their new surroundings.

With Mother's Day just around the corner I needed a super quick and easy idea that didn't break the bank. For one gift I made a jute owl basket and filled it with dishcloths and pot scrubbers.



I wanted to add a little something more. So I decided to make a jute pot holder with the left over jute twine I had purchased from the local dollar store.

Here is what I came up with;
