New Kay's Flannel Crochet Edge Rotary Blade in Stock!

woohoo we finally have our crochet edge blade for Flannel in stock and ready to ship! This blade is great for thinner materials like flannel, t-shirts, handkerchiefs, etc. My flannel crochet edge blade makes the cuts a bit closer together than the fleece blade.To purchase my blades please see my website or Etsy store.

Here is an adorable flannel baby receiving blanket I am working on. I used crochet thread on this one instead of yarn to see how it would look. It gives it a pretty lacier look than yarn so I am really happy with it!

Free Crochet Pattern for Halloween Towel Toppers!

I just made these cute Halloween towels last night while I was watching tv. Super fun and easy to make using our CroEdge blade for fleece. And they are good for using up leftover bits of yarn. To purchase your own crochet edge blade see my website here

Towel prep/Foundation Row
Be sure to choose towels that have the same design on the top and bottom. Use a rotary cutter to cut the towel evenly in half. Use our CroEdge Blade for fleece to make the crochet holes about  ½” from the edge of the towel. This will make a nice hem.
With the front of the towel facing you; slip stitch into the first hole on the right and then chain 1. Crochet into the next hole and chain 1 all the way across. Ch 3 and turn

Row 1 – DC in each stitch across. Ch 3 and turn

Row 2 – DC2tog in each stitch across. Ch 3 and turn

Row 3 – Repeat row 2

Row 4 - Repeat Row 2 (if you have an extra on the end just make 1 DC in the extra stitch)

Row 5 – DC evenly spaced across the row (total of 7 DC counting chain 3) Ch 3 turn

Row 6 – DC in each DC across. Ch 3 turn
Row 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 - Repeat Row 6.

Row 12 – 1 DC in next 2 DC, ch 1, skip 1 DC and 1 DC in next 2 DC (button hole made). Ch 3 turn

Row 13 – 1 DC in next 2 DC,  1 DC in ch 1 space, 1 DC in each of next 3 DC.

Fasten off yarn weave in ends and  sew on button.
