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!

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 …

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…

Custom Fabric Labels for Crochet and Knit Items of Any Kind

Where'd you get those labels from?  For me, the final touches are just as important as creating the piece or project. For a while after I started selling my crochet and knit pieces, I wanted to find the perfect label. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted other then something that would make the piece look finished and professional. Something that told people that I, The Apple Tree Crochet, made that item. Something that tells people that I take pride in what I create because I put my name on it.

So the search to find the perfect label began. Wooden or leather labels came to mind first because that is what I was seeing everywhere on social media and it also seemed to be my only choice for knit or crochet pieces. I spent countless nights mulling over my options but none of them seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.  Eventually, I settled on ordering custom wooden labels.


These labels were very nice, but not really what I was looking for. I wasn't able to fit my full …
