Super Easy 3 Square Sweater [knitting pattern]

Super Easy 3 Square Sweater [knitting pattern]
Last month I posted a children's version of this sweater. I finally finished the adult version and I'm really happy with the way it turned out! I make a few changes. I used Bernat Home Dec yarn which has a good weight and hangs nicely. Since it's a cotton/nylon blend it's perfect for this transitional weather. The other change I made was the hem. I made it longer in the back to create some asymmetry. 
 
Yarn: Bernat Home Dec (2 skeins- I used Pebble Beach Varigate)
Needles: size 11 straight
Knitting pattern
Gauge: 2sts = 1 inch
Sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
For the front square:
Cast on 54 (58, 62, 66) sts. Work in Garter Stitch until piece measures 18 (19, 20, 21, 22) inches. Bind off. 
For the back square:
Cast on 54 (58, 62, 66) sts. Work in Garter Stitch until piece measures 23 (24, 25, 26, 27) inches.
For the turtleneck:
Cast on 54 (58, 62, 66) sts. Work in Garter Stitch until the piece measures 10 inches. Bind off.
Finishing
1)  Sew the pieces together at the top (to make the shoulders) - 4 1/2 inches on each side. Fold over and sew the side seams together, leaving a 12 inch opening for arm holes.
 2) Fold the remaining piece in half lengthwise to create the turtleneck. Sew the side seam. Sew the turtleneck on to the sweater.

How to Build a Cedar Window Box [video tutorial]

How to Build a Cedar Window Box [video tutorial]
I've had many requests for more video tutorials and I'm excited to announce that they will become a regular feature on the blog! These DIY Cedar window boxes were one of my favorite additions to the exterior of my house. I originally planned on purchasing the planters online, but after I found out they would be almost $150 apiece I decided to go the DIY route. These were less than $20 apiece! They're really easy to make. Check out the video and Robert will show you how it's done.

Relaxed French Braid Tutorial

Relaxed French Braid Tutorial
Today I'm going to show you a different take on the traditional French Braid. Normally, with a French Braid, you add new strands of hair to each outside section. With the Relaxed French Braid, you add new strands of hair every other outside section. The end result is a looser and more full braid.
