Video Tutorials

For the most part, I like to keep my crochet patterns pretty simple.  I use the same stitches and techniques over and over to create my designs.

My friend, Courtney, is back to demonstrate these stitches for us.  Starting with the most basic stitches like single crochet, half-double crochet, and double crochet…then moving on to slightly more advanced techniques like single crochet increase, invisible decrease, invisible join, cluster stitches, surface slip stitches, and reverse single crochet.  I hope you find these videos informative!!

Please welcome the newest member of the One and Two Company Crochet family – Franklin the Little Fox!

Franklin the Little Fox loves handmade things. His mother makes him cute jackets, silly scarves, and anything else he can imagine! This adorable fox is a quick and easy project. You will have an amazing gift for a very special person in just a few hours! 😉

A few years ago I was looking for some really soft and squishy yarn to create a new line of patterns with, and that’s how Big Hugs yarn came to be.

Crocheted Eyes for Amigurumi

posted by Carolina Guzman January 19, 2018 4 Comments

I love seeing the different ways crocheters add facial features to my patterns.  Different interpretations of eyes, noses, and mouths can give each creation such original expressions!

Adding eyes to amigurumis can add a lot of personality to a project.  For the most part, many people – myself included – like to use safety eyes.  But sometimes safety eyes aren’t easy to find or they’re a little more costly than you might like.  Or maybe you’re just unsure of how they will hold up in a toy given to a baby or small child.  A great alternative to using safety eyes is to crochet your own!  My friend, Linda, crochets all of the eyes for her creations, and she helped me create the following tutorial for you.

I love making loveys!!  They’re just so much fun.  But sometimes sewing the head on the blanket can be stressful – especially when you’re assembling a lovey with a square blanket without a well-defined center.  My friend, Courtney, took some pictures to help explain the process a little better.
