FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Offbeat Baby Cardigan

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Offbeat Baby Cardigan

Before you know it, sweater weather will be upon us here in the northern hemisphere. I know it is hard to think about it on a balmy summer day, but as we have learned in previous years, time flies. Why not get ahead of the season with some awesome baby wear? I made this Offbeat Baby Cardigan for Nasir, and it turned out so sweet!! Even though it is way too hot to be dressed in this sweater today, my sweet boy still modeled it like a champ!

Using an eclectic mix of thick and thin striping, this mismatched pattern makes a striking cardigan that is a compliment to any baby wardrobe. I made this one using Brava Yarn by WeCrochet (KnitPicks) in the colors Asphalt Heather and Denim. This combo works so nicely for Nas, but it can be done in any combination of color. And don’t worry if the stripes throw you off, you can follow along without changing colors and make this solid or use only the elements you like to make it your own. Be sure to share your photos with me when you finish!!

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

Shell: [2DC, Ch 1, 2DC] in specified location

Pattern:

If you have any confusion or difficulty with reading this pattern, please watch the video tutorial that is linked above in this blog post to have visual instructions.

Front Panel and Back Panel:

The front and back panel are made exactly the same, just make 2 then sew them together (Watch the video tutorial to learn how to do this)

With Main Color
Ch 75 (or any multiple of 5 that is HALF of your Bust Measurement)

Row 1: Shell in the 6th Ch from hook, *Sk 2 Chs, DC in next Ch, Sk 2 Chs, Shell in next Ch, repeat from * across ending with DC in last ch, Turn. (You want to end this row with one double crochet, if you have extra chains, you can ignore those and sew them in later when we sew our panels together.)

Before going onto Row 2, Mark 2 lines where you want your ribbing lines to be, these should be evenly spaced. See video tutorial at 12 minutes, 20 seconds to see this demonstration. My written instructions are for the pattern I’m demonstrating, but you can understand the idea and do it according to your measurement and stitch count.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as DC), *Shell in ch 1 sp of next Shell, Sk 2 sts, DC in next st, repeat from * until you get to your marked st, FPDC on marked st, **Shell in ch 1 sp of next shell, Sk 2 sts, DC in next st, repeat from ** until you get to the next marked st, FPDC on marked st, ***Shell in Ch 1 sp of next shell, Sk 2 sts, DC in next st, Repeat from *** until the end, ending with DC in last st, Turn.

Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as DC), *Shell in ch 1 sp of next Shell, Sk 2 sts, DC in next st, repeat from * until you get to your marked st, BPDC on marked st, **Shell in ch 1 sp of next shell, Sk 2 sts, DC in next st, repeat from ** until you get to the next marked st, BPDC on marked st, ***Shell in Ch 1 sp of next shell, Sk 2 sts, DC in next st, Repeat from *** until the end, ending with DC in last st, Turn.

Rows 4-40: repeat Rows 2 and 3 (you can continue this method until you have the shirt as long as you want it to be. I ended on Row 40)
Fasten off, weave in ends.

After both front and back panel are made, Sew them together up the sides (leaving room for arm holes) and across the shoulders (leaving room for a head hole) Be sure that your foundation row is the top of the shirt and your last row is the bottom of the shirt. You want the wavy look to be at the bottom of the shirt, and the shells to be upside down.

Sleeves:

Do this method for BOTH arm holes to make BOTH sleeves.

Round 1: Attach main color (Clarity) to any section of the arm hole (I started at the armpit), Ch 3 (does not count as a stitch), Evenly space 70 TR around entire Arm Hole. (see video tutorial for visual instructions) I worked around the ch 3 sps from each row of the body part of the shirt. Sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 2: With new color (Sunshine), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 3: With new color (Sky), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 4: With main color, (Clarity), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 5: With new color (Sunshine), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 6: With new color (Sky), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 7: With main color (Clarity), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 8: With new color (Sunshine), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 9: With new color (Sky), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 10: With main color (Clarity), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, DO NOT fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 11: Continue with main color Clarity, Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 12: With new color (Sunshine), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, DO NOT fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 13: Continue with same color Sunshine, Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 14: With new color (Sky), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 15: With main color (Clarity), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 16: Continue with main color Clarity, Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 17: With new color (Sunshine), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, DO NOT fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 18: Continue with same color Sunshine, Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 19: With new color (Sky), Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, DO NOT fasten off, Turn.

Rnd 20: Continue with same color Sky, Ch 3, TR in each st around, sl st to first TR, Fasten off.
Be sure you are looking at the OUTSIDE of your sleeve and then attach your main color to any stitch and continue onto Round 21.
Making the cuff
Rnd 21: Ch 1, SC2TOG in each st around. (you will have half the number of sts around plus one extra SC, I had 36 sts around), Sl st to first SC, Ch 1, DO NOT TURN.

Rnd 22: Working in BLO, SC2TOG in each st around, sl st to first SC, Ch 1, Do not turn. (18 sts)

Rnds 23-32: working in BLO, SC in each st around, Sl st to first SC, Ch 1, do not turn.

Fasten off main color, attach Sunshine in any st around. Work in BOTH LOOPS
Rnd 33: SC in each st around.

Fasten off, weave in all ends.

You can change the colors, add knee patches, use smaller buttons or eliminate the buttons altogether. The creative ideas with this fall & winter pattern are endless!

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:

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!

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 cotton yarn

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.

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.

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!
