Sea Breeze Slippers & Happy Friday!

1HTslipsfbI had the extreme pleasure in testing the newly released pattern “Sea Breeze Slippers” from Pattern Paradise! And… let me tell you, I <3 them…

In fact I enjoyed the pattern so much, I not only made a size 7-8 for myself, but then made another pair (size 5-6) for my beautiful mother as a gift.

1momSBslips2When in the house, my new Sea Breeze Slippers are always donned! I really enjoyed using the houndstooth stitch pattern and the soles are doubled for extra padding and comfort. The pattern is written with left and right slippers for added comfort and goes from a size 5 through size 11. To distinguish right/left slippers, I added yarn bows to mine and cute little pom-poms to Mom’s… I do so <3 me some cute pom-poms!

Overall, this pattern gets five out of five stars from me! Excellent job, Pattern Paradise! You can find the pattern on sale through 7/19 for the special release price in Maria’s Ravelry Shop :)

Happy Friday!

Week #1 ~ Stitch’n Style Handbag Blog Hop CAL

1-1&2-sqRwpWelcome to the first week of our July Crochet-Along Blog Hop. If you haven’t joined the event on Facebook yet, Follow this link July Stitch’n Style Handbag CAL Blog Hop. This week you will begin your CAL by crocheting up blocks in two different stitch patterns – the Diagonal Spike stitch and Ridged String Network stitch. You’ll need to make two of each block. Ready, Set, GO!


  • Approximately 600 yards of yarn, we used DK weight, but really you can use any yarn you want as long as you adjust the hook size
  • A 3.75mm/US F crochet hook
  • ½ yard – 1 yard of lining fabric (optional, but we recommend it)
  • Iron on interfacing strip (optional, but we recommend it)
  • Basic crochet tools such as a yarn needle and scissors
  • A good attitude and fun spirit!


  • Beg = Beginning
  • Ch(s) = Chain(s)
  • Dc =Double crochet
  • Dec = decrease
  • PUFF st = Puff stitch
  • Ldc = Long double crochet
  • LKDC = Linked double crochet
  • R = Row
  • Rep = Repeat
  • Sc= Single crochet
  • Sdc = Spike double crochet
  • St(s) = Stitches

How to read this pattern

  • Asterisks indicate to repeat stitches within the ** as instructed.
  • Parentheses () at the end of a round = total sts for that round.



Diagonal Spike Stitch

Square One (make two)

Yarn: DK, sport, category 3

Model made with Omega Sinfonia

Hook size: F-5 (3.75mm) or size needed to make gauge

Gauge: 22 st x 9 rows = 5×5”

Spike double crochet (Sdc) = yo, insert hook into same space that first dc of previous 3 dc block was worked, yo, draw loop through long and even with working row so as not to crush 3 dc block,  *yo, draw through 2 loops* twice. Find the videotutorial here for a visual reference.

R1: Ch 23 with moderate tension (rather loosely).

R2: dc 3rd ch from hook (count as 1 dc), *1 dc into each of next 3 chs, skip next ch and work 1 Sdc over it instead* repeat ** across, ending 1 dc into last ch, turn. (22)

R3: ch3 (count as 1 dc), skip 1 st, *1 dc into each of next 3 sts, skip next st and work 1 Sdc over it instead* repeat** across, ending 1 dc into top of turning ch, turn. (22)

R4-9: Repeat R3.  DO NOT FASTEN OFF – skip to SC Border for joining squares

1sq2wp Ridged String Network Stitch

Square Two (make two)

Yarn: DK, sport, category 3

Model made with Omega Sinfonia

Hook size: F-5 (3.75mm) or size needed to make gauge

Gauge: 28 sts x 18 rows = 5×5”

Find the videotutorial here for a visual reference.

R1: Ch 30 with moderate tension (rather loosely).

R2:(right side) 1 sc into 2nd ch from hook, *ch 3, skip 3 chs, 1 sc into next ch, repeat** to end, turn. (29)

R3: Ch1, working into back loop only of each st work 1 sc into first st, *ch 3, skip 3 chs, 1 sc into next sc; repeat ** to end, turn. (29)

R4-18: Repeat R3. DO NOT FASTEN OFF – skip to SC Border for joining squares

SC Border For Joining Squares:

Ch1, *work 22 sc evenly to st before corner, 3sc in corner st*, repeat ** 3 more times. Join with sl st to beg sc. Fasten off.

Tip: To assist in placing the 22 stitches evenly across the square, divide the square edge into 4 sections and figure out how many stitches you’d need to have in each section to make it even – I did 5 in the first section, 6 in the next 2 sections and 5 in the final section.

Each Monday, beginning July 7th, the host (that’s me this week!) will start a post on the Facebook event page for the week’s WIP (work in progress) projects – we’d love for you to comment on those posts and add a photo(s) of your WIP, so we can all ooh and aah over them!  Also, I would be remiss in my duties as the blogger of this website, if I didn’t encourage you to click on that area to your right ———-> and subscribe to this blog 

Week #2 of the July Stitch’n Style Handbag CAL Blog Hop will be July 8th over on Janaya’s Blog - Charmed by Ewe

Happy Hooking and see you next week over at Charmed by Ewe!
