Love is in the Air Ring Bearer Pillow Pattern Release

 

“Love is friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce,
but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes
as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.” Bruce Lee

Love is in the Air Ring Bearer Pillow
The Inspiration: The first thing I think of when I think love is: my husband. I am married to the love of my life. He is my soul mate, my equal in the things that matter, and my opposite where it counts. He completes me. If I had to create something that said “LOVE” to me, I would have to be inspired by my own marriage to him. I wish I crocheted more during the planning of my own wedding because I would have loved to have created my own ring bearer pillow. This set matches perfectly with the Love is in the Air Wedding Gloves/Wristlet pattern and the Love is in the Air Wedding Veil pattern, which both also utilize the solomon’s knot stitch or lover’s knot stitch.Materials: To create the Love is in the Air Ring Bearer Pillow, you will need an F hook, a tapestry needle for weaving in ends, scissors for cutting the yarn, a measuring tape to check gauge and about a yard of fabric for lining the pillow. The preferred yarn used in this project is Loops & Threads Woolike. It is a superfine or size 1 thread, but it has the feel and look of regular wool yarn.

Attaching Buttons to Yarn Items

At some point in time when you learn to crochet, you will need to know how to attach a button to a crocheted item.This can be used as a closure for wallets, bags or wearables. It is also frequently used as eyes or noses on character beanies and other amigurumi items.

I think the trick to securing it is tying the knot before weaving in the ends.

To learn how to weave in ends, see tutorial here

How to Make Graph Paper in Excel

 I have found that using graph paper when drawing out graphs can be very helpful in crochet. HOWEVER, graph paper costs money, AND it can be difficult to find without going to an office store. If I can get away with going to the smaller store I will definitely do so! I also use excel to create the graphs I draw in my patterns. It looks MUCH more professional than a graph drawn in pencil and scanned in.

Here is another way to use excel to do the same thing.

Once you finish putting in your graph, you can highlight all the area of the graph and change the outline of the cells so that they show up nicely.

You can then print the pattern out onto paper, OR you can print the file to pdf.

To print to pdf: Click File –> Save As –> There will be a space for “File name” and “File Type”. Name it as you wish, but change the file type to PDF. Now you can push save and Adobe (If you do not have Adobe Reader, download it here) will open up and you will have a beautiful copy of your graph!
