Crochet Tutorial: Summer Shawl

Standard

It’s that time of the year when those summer days can turn into cool summer nights and you need that perfect wrap just to cut that chill while you’re sitting around a fire or taking a walk along the beach. Why not create this shawl that would be beautiful and the perfect accessory to any outfit. It would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift, a gift you could make for your bridesmaids, or a hit for anyone on your gift list, any time of the year!

I used this ombre yarn by Lion Brand Yarns Shawl in a Ball in the color Community Coral. I fell in love with the feel and look of this textile! I designed a simple repeat pattern making this a quick, easy, yet stunning wrap in less than two days. Perfect for a cool evening to wear over a sundress or top. The versatility of this piece allows for several ways to wear!

Summer Shawl
This summer shawl is perfect for cooler nights, chilly mornings, and anytime you need to be wrapped in a bit of warmth. Shown below is the front view with it tied.

Crochet Tutorial: Hometown Honey Sunhat

Standard

For the first time, I tried my hand at crocheting with raffia yarn. It was definitely an interesting experience in trying something new. I made this floppy brim Hometown Honey Sunhat! Just in time to protect yourself from the rays! Whether on the beach or in the garden, this will come in handy!

Working with raffia while creating this hat was interesting. I may have to try again on another project to fully provide a fair opinion of this type of yarn. I ran into a few frustrating challenges, but still managed to achieve a decent result. Some tweaking and blocking this hat pattern will continue to improve its look.

Hometown Honey Sunhat2
When working with Raffia Yarn, always remember, you will have to give your hands a rest from time to time. Depending on the type of Raffia you use in your project, it can be a little rough on the hands.

Hometown Honey Sunhat3
In making this hat, my initial concern was over the hook size because of the pattern it was creating. The yarn looks thick/bulky, but it is actually quite thin when you start working with it. It created a stitch that wasn’t as tight as I expected it to be using my G6 crochet hook. Be aware of that when you start your project. This Raffia yarn is also not as firm as I expected it to be in the final product.

Hometown Honey Sunhat
When I wore the hat, the brim of the hat was very floppy and did not hold a firm shape. I had a feeling that would happen while I was crocheting this in the video tutorial. At that point, I realized I had to do something to acquire the the wide brim look that I was hoping for. I decided to block this piece after I had my dad photograph it.

Below you will see the photo of the hat in the blocking process. I pinned it to a towel and saturated it with water. It will be dry within 24 hours and it should hold a better shape. Upon doing further research, I have learned that you can also starch raffia/straw sunhats by using liquid spray starch or making your own starch with 16 oz. of hot water mixed with a tablespoon of corn starch. You can spray the mixture on your hat. It will not wreck it, and it will give you a more desired shape.

For those of you who want a floppy brim, the original result will give you that. It’s cute no matter what!!

Blocking Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Beach Swimsuit Cover-Up

Standard

I braved the chilly temperature to showcase my latest design for summer. My Mesh Beach Swimsuit Cover-up is here just in time to enjoy sand and surf. I would not recommend heading to the beach quite yet if you live in a climate like mine! My toes have finally started to regain feeling! Haha!! Things will be heating up soon!

Beach Cover3
Below a closeup photo of the Mesh Beach Swimsuit Cover-up. Made with 100% cotton, this piece can be worn over a swimsuit or as a tunic top. I have paired it over a swimsuit to show you how wonderfully useful this will be for summer at the beach
Beach Cover
I’m like a kid in a candy store when it comes to being excited for warm weather and fun in the sun! This cover-up was just the right piece to get me in the mood for summertime! This versatile tunic is not only perfect over swimwear, but it makes a nice summer top that can be worn over a sundress or tank top.

Beach Cover1
Removing the drawstring belt is optional, to give this piece a new look. The wide boat neck collar is perfect for wearing off the shoulder. Ooh, la, la! Summer, here we come!

Beach4
Here, I have paired it over a white dress for a more modest fashion tunic.
