How to Crochet Tutorial: Patchouli Poncho

How to Crochet Tutorial: Patchouli Poncho

There are a variety of fiber textures that I used to create this eclectic boho-inspired poncho! I decided to create this free-flowing Patchouli Poncho that just begs you to get outdoors on a beautiful day and feel the sunshine pour down upon you! I used my Sublime Light Granny Square from the 365 Days of Granny Squares for the border design, and it was just the right touch for this avant-garde piece! This project is coming to you just in time for the holidays! Get ready to make one for yourself or for someone you love!

Crochet Tutorial: Autumn Nights Cardigan

Crochet Tutorial: Autumn Nights Cardigan

As summer is at it’s peak, it’s hard to imagine that in less than two months the weather will be quite different here in Wisconsin. I love the four seasons, but I am much more of a warm weather girl than one who embraces the cold. For that reason, I try to be prepared for the cold weather by having the warmest wardrobe ready!

Not much will be warmer than the Autumn Nights Chunky Cardi! This lush sweater will blanket you from the cold. It is about as cozy of a sweater that will ever find. The most wonderful part? You can make it yourself!

Using Red Heart Yarn Grande, I was able to design and make this project in less than one day. You can too! Here are my easy to follow instructions for this chunky cardigan along with the video tutorial on how to make one for yourself. Don’t get caught in the cold weather this fall and winter and make yours now!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this cardigan:

 

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.

-The measurements for the cardigan I demonstrate in the video tutorial are: 72 inch panels (36 inches (92 cm) in length from shoulder to bottom), Sleeves measure 20 inches (50 cm). You can make as many stitches as you need because this pattern goes off measurements and not stitch counts.

-On the Front/Back Panels, To make this longer, make more stitches on  your foundation row.
-On the sleeves, to make them longer, make more stitches on your foundation row.
-To make the cuff longer, add more rows on your sleeve cuff.
-I used 828 Yards of yarn in this project
-I used Red Heart Grande Yarn in this project, but if you cannot access this yarn, go to YARNSUB.com and search “Grande” yarn, and click on Red Heart Yarns Grande. It will list all the yarns that are equal to this yarn so you can find a similar weight yarn if you cannot get Grande.

Crochet Tutorial: Pom Poms and Pineapples Poncho

June marks the official start of the summer season here in the northern hemisphere. It is the month when I get geared up to create a lot of fun-in-the-sun crochet patterns that are perfect for this time of year. Here is a pattern to launch that collection of great summer designs!

My Pom Poms and Pineapples Beach Poncho will have you feeling ALL KINDS of SUMMER VIBES! Seriously, this is one of the most delightful fashion pieces I have ever designed!! With a plethora of stitches, this creative piece will make the perfect swimsuit cover-up!! Picture yourself at the pool or sinking your feet in the sandy beach, sporting this adorable cover-up over your fun and sassy swimwear!! This is the picture-perfect piece to wear anytime all season long!

Made with Scrubby Smoothie Cotton by Red Heart Yarns, this project will be a sure-fire hit as you head to the water! Go from sea, sun, and sand by day, pairing this over your swimsuit, and wear it into the evening with a cute summer sundress or tank-top and capris for those summer nights! You can’t go wrong with this fabulous poncho no matter which way you wear it! I LOVE mine and you will too!

This is one pattern you won’t want to miss!!! A fun tip: add a few tacking stitches under the arms to create sleeves and turn this awesome poncho into a cute summer top! Now, go grab your hooks, your fave cotton yarn (here is my latest obsession) and let’s get started! The sooner you begin, the quicker you can head to the beach! See you there!

Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hearts Baby Dress

Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hearts Baby Dress

It has been quite a while, but I finally completed my latest infant fashion piece! My Happy Hearts Baby Dress is a lovely one piece cotton frock made with Red Heart Yarns Scrubby Smoothie.

This lovely dress has tiny popcorn stitch detail on the skirt creating two stacked hearts. The simple ruffle creates a cap sleeve on the bodice. I added a tiny ribbon accent to complete the piece. Each detail was carefully thought out to create this wonderful project.

Easy enough for all stages of crocheters, this infant attire will be a hit for everyone!! As a crochet artist you will love the simplicity of this design while making it, and the final product is sure to WOW the masses! Andddd, I can guarantee that any little baby will look adorable in this frock

Below is a view of the back of the dress.

Crochet Tutorial: Fairy Tunic

Crochet Tutorial: Fairy Tunic

My very last installment in the Link and Zelda costumes is The Fairy Tunic. I spent each night well past midnight the week before Halloween, trying to finish and achieve some level of authenticity to these costumes. I made this tunic a bit larger than my frame as it had to fit over the dress I had purchased at a thrift store. It can easily be altered by adding corset ties down the back to help cinch it in a bit.

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this shirt:

Crochet Tutorial: Chain-Link Tunic

Crochet Tutorial: Chain-Link Tunic

Part of Nate’s Halloween costume includes a mesh like vest under Link’s Tunic. As I was creating it, I thought to myself how nice this would be worn on it’s own! You can wear it as the costume piece it was intended for, a vest over a cute top, or as a swimsuit cover-up! This turned out to be better than I expected with more versatility than I could imagine! An easy pattern that is adaptable to all sizes!

Shop Red Heart, America's Favorite Yarn

NOTES:

-This project uses 1,220 yards of yarn. I am making the size Small/Medium. Keep reading to learn how to make this smaller or bigger.
-Use a smaller hook to make these smaller
-Use a bigger hook to make these bigger
-Watch the FULL video tutorial for visual instructions for each round and tips on how to make this smaller and bigger.
-Weave in all the ends as you go so you don’t have to weave them all in at the very end.
-Your starting chain should be any multiple of 5 (I start with 75, you can start with 65, 75, 85, 95), Round 2 increases 5 stitches evenly. Rounds 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 increase by 10 stitches evenly each round. If you need to increase more, you can continue with the established pattern of increases and then go onto the instructions for the front of the poncho and the back of the poncho to create the front slits.
-If you want to make this smaller, stop increasing at any round (maybe round 5 or 6 so you have about 120 sts), then go onto instructions on making the front and back of the poncho.
-TURN YOUR WORK FOR EACH ROW!!!
-If the instructions above are confusing, please message me on Facebook, and I will answer any questions you may have. Please be specific in your questions. Thank you!!
-The measurements for this poncho are as follows: Tail: 9 inches (22.86 cm), slits in the front: 10 inches around (25.4cm), Shoulder to bottom: 27 inches (68.58cm), Across shoulders: 17 inches (43.18cm), Hood length: 16 inches (40.64cm), Waist: 48 inches around (121.92cm), Hips: 50 inches around (127 cm), Pockets: 4 inches deep (10.16cm)
-Please know you can make this bigger or smaller with very few mathematical changes.

If you need to make this bigger, here is the start of the pattern for a foundation chain of 85.

Ch 85

Rnd 1: Sl st to 1st ch to form a large ring (this should fit over your head), Ch up 2 (does not count as st), DC in each ch around, sl st to first DC. Turn. (85)

Rnd 2: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 16 sts] 5 times, sl st to first DC, Turn. (90)

Rnd 3: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 8 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (100)

Rnd 4: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 9 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (110)

Rnd 5: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 10 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (120)

Rnd 6: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 11 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (130)

And so on.. I hope this makes sense and you are able to make this poncho. After Round 6, it is the established pattern to increase however big you need the poncho to be. Then you can go on to making the slits.

Special stitches
:
Ch(s): chain(s)
YO: Yarn Over
St(s): Stitch(es)
BLO: Back Loops Only

Rnd 2: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 14 sts] 5 times, sl st to first DC, Turn. (80)
(if you chained a different amount than me, be sure to calculate your original chain amount + 5, then divide that sum by 5, that will be the amount of stitches you will have between your increases) (If that doesn’t make sense, let me know, send me a message on Facebook)

Rnd 3: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 7 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (90)

Crochet Tutorial: Sharp Dressed Man Vest

Crochet Tutorial: Sharp Dressed Man Vest

Over the course of the week, I designed and created this Sharp Dressed Man Vest. This semi-formal fashion piece for men can be paired with a shirt and tie or worn over a plain jersey shirt. A versatile piece that would be perfect for the man in your life. A collection of stitches provide rich texture and great elements of design in this two-toned sweater vest.

sharp3

I want to give a special shout out to Nate for waking up early and braving the freezing cold weather to model this piece. He wears it so well! I really go crazy over this Sharp Dressed Man!

sharp

The best thing about this Sharp Dressed Man vest is that with a bit of basic math, the stitch calculations can be adjusted for any size!! From infant to adult this design can be modified for anyone!

Although I didn’t make this design with pockets, adding that detail would be an easy adjustment for an entirely new look.

Crochet Tutorial: Beach Swimsuit Cover-Up

Crochet Tutorial: Beach Swimsuit Cover-Up

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.

Crochet Tutorial: The G.G. (Gorgeous Gal) Cardigan

Crochet Tutorial: The G.G. (Gorgeous Gal) Cardigan

Designer, Rosetta Getty, created The Granny Square Mixed Media Cardigan. Fashion model, Gigi Hadid, was photographed by paparazzi wearing that sweater, and it exploded all over the Internet. Being the fashion maven that I am, I had to have it! So, I designed my very own! My G.G. (Gorgeous Gal) Cardigan was an intense work of creative fashion art. I designed it based off the photo. Here I am modeling my version next to the photo of Gigi Hadid wearing hers.

NOTES:
-This pattern is in American crochet terms.
-The cardigan that I made measures: Shoulders: 16 inches, Arm Length: 25 inches, Length of sweater: 37 inches
Recommendation: I would use softer yarn for this project (Caron Simply Soft or Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice). The yarn I used was quite stiff and bulky.

For Larger Sizing:
My recommendations for larger sizes would be to use a larger crochet hook as well as making more rounds on your granny squares. Working a repeat of round 6 once or twice should make your squares larger. You may also make this longer by adding more squares to the length of your cardigan. Another suggestion would be to add additional rounds around each panel when you single crochet around each piece to give it a larger size/width to accommodate your size. To determine the fit of the upper arm: You will have to take your upper arm measurement and make sure your squares are made accordingly. ALL SQUARES HAVE TO BE THE SAME SIZE IN THIS ENTIRE PROJECT.

Gauge:
1 square is 6 inches x 6 inches

Ch: chain
St(s): Stitch(es)
YO: Yarn Over
Sl st: slip stitch
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
DC: Double Crochet
Beginning Cluster (Beg. Cluster): Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO insert hook back into the stitch, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, (You should have 3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through all loops.
Cluster Stitch (Cluster):  YO, insert hook into st, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, insert hook back into st, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, insert hook back into st, YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops (you should have 4 loops on your hook), YO and pull through all 4 loops.

Crochet Tutorial: Candy Corn Leg Warmers

Crochet Tutorial: Candy Corn Leg Warmers

Who else is ready for hoodies, bonfires, crisp cool air, hot cocoa, football, and beautiful fall colors? This time of the year brings to mind all things cozy, and that is the premise for my candy corn leg warmers!

These colors always bring to mind the harvest season, Halloween, and cooler days. Today’s tutorial shows how to create these great pair of leg warmers in striped yellow, orange, and white.

Candy Corn Leg Warmers

 

My original pattern developed out of a discovery I made at a thrift shop. While hunting through a basket of vintage jewelry, I stumbled across a pair of wooden maple leaf earrings. I immediately thought these would make great buttons, but what to pair them with?! After careful consideration, I decided to remove the backings and drill some button holes and transform these into an embellishment for these leg warmers!

These are SUPER easy to learn and you can adapt these to any size and any color you’d like! They do not have to be Halloween themed. You can make them one plain color, you can make them team sport colors, you can get as creative as you desire! The video shows how to change color to create this striped effect, but if you wish to continue in a solid tone, just follow the directions without the color changes.

Candy Corn Leg Warmers
