When we upgraded our video editing equipment here at Moogly headquarters at the end of last year, one of the things we most wanted was the ability to create left handed videos as well as the usual right handed ones. And I’ve been very glad to hear how much all the lefties out there have appreciated it! So I’m very happy to be able to share two more left handed videos that have been a long time coming – Standing Double Crochet and Chainless Starting Double Crochet for Lefties!

The Standing Double Crochet stitch is one I came to late – and I wish I’d known about it years earlier! It’s not a stitch that you’ll usually find specified in a pattern, and as such it has no standard abbreviation. What it is, is a technique – one that will allow you to start a new row on a crochet project without having to use the telltale “join with a slip stitch and chain 3” – and I can’t wait to share it with you!
The Standing Double Crochet tutorial is popular for showing how to join a new color to a project without having to slip stitch and chain – very cool! And it’s easy enough to extrapolate it to taller stitches – just wrap the yarn an extra time (or two, or three) at the start. But using this the technique to start a row of half double crochets also works – with one extra step to make it just right. This is how it’s done.
This free crochet area rug pattern is the bee’s knees! The Bee’s Knees Crochet Rug features granny hexagons all put together with a pretty edging, in super cushy yarn for that bold, boho chic look that’s always hot!
Whether you believe in astrology or not, this applique set can be fun to make! Add these appliques to whatever you like – and even if astrology isn’t your bag, they stand alone as a crab applique, lion applique, and girl applique! In 2016 I’m creating applique patterns for the entire zodiac – 3 at a time. The first set, including Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces can be found by clicking HERE, and the second set, featuring Aries, Taurus, and Gemini can be found by clicking HERE. Now, it’s time for the Cancer, Leo, and Virgo appliques!
This is the end… (cue 1970’s thunder…) … of the 2014 Moogly Afghan CAL! Except not, because while this IS the last square for the year, we’ve got joining and borders and showing off left to do! So I’m giving you this square a day early, so you can have the long holiday weekend to work on it. (And because I’m taking tomorrow off to cook for 25 people!) But if this is the first you’ve heard of the 2014 Moogly Afghan Crochet-a-Long, then start HERE to read how it works – and plan on joining in next year! I’ll be announcing the plans for the 2015 CAL in December so we all have time to plan!
