It's time for the fourth installment of yarny things I make while hiding from the world and waiting for spring! For Christmas I made my roommate an ear warmer she wanted and learned a new technique that changed my life... the chainless foundation double crochet stitch. The entirety of my crochet knowledge comes from what I manage to glean via google so it's safe to say that I practice some pretty bad habits; one of which is crocheting into the initial chain. I have never understood which loops you're supposed to crochet into and just continually fought with the yarn until something resembling a single or double crochet stitch happened... until now! With a chainless foundation stitch you can bypass the uncertainty and struggle! Now I never have to learn how to actually crochet properly, a wonderful solution for a lazy girl like me. Plus, chainless foundation double crochet stitch sounds deceivingly complicated so you can be all fancy in front of your knitter friends...and/or cat.
All of this is beside the point... the point is I had left over yarn from my roommate's Christmas present and decided to make yet another accessory for myself (still you should really check out that tutorial). I don't fully understand the point of boot cuffs because like... what happened to the rest of your sock? But when you have half a ball of yarn left and already a zillion mug cozies what else is there? So I made these things and I think they're pretty cute if not very functionally warm. Gotta love a scalloped edge.
You can find the tutorial I used here.
See you next time when I expand into full on leg warmers... but like for real.
