Crochet Tutorial: Pommin’ Around Cowl

Crochet Tutorial: Pommin’ Around Cowl

Although winter will officially end next month, Wisconsin weather is very temperamental. We see snow even as late as May. As I plan out my future projects, I decided to add a quick cowl to the mix. This Pommin’ Around Cowl is an easy repeat pattern using Grit Stitch. The pom detail on the one border adds a touch of fun and whimsy to this simple design. Perfect for the beginner to advanced crocheter!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

Crochet Tutorial: Wrapped in Jewels Shawl

My wedding is in March 2018!! I chose regal jewel tone colors for my bridesmaids. Each one of my girls will be gifted my Wrapped In Jewels Shawl accented with pearlized beads and created in their coordinate colors! This beautiful ombre shawl uses Red Heart Super Saver Ombre to create this elegant and striking gradient color. Getting married in Wisconsin in March means those temps are still going to be a bit chilly! My girls standing by my side will be wrapped in a warm hug on my wedding day and beyond. This is a great gift for anyone.

Grab your hooks and this beautiful ombre yarn and get yours started today! Don’t have this yarn? This lovely shawl would look amazing in any color. Imagine ivory as another bridal alternative or match your bridesmaids in a different tone. This is one piece you cannot go wrong with!

GIVEAWAY ENDED: Yarn Pooling Made Easy Blog Tour & Book Review

GIVEAWAY ENDED: Yarn Pooling Made Easy Blog Tour & Book Review

This Giveaway has ended
Thank you to all who participated!
Congratulations to the winner Stephanie Parish Buser!!

 

If I were to start this blog post a year ago, you would have heard my howl of frustration across the globe as I spent most of my efforts attempting to Yarn Pool in utter failure. No joke. I can’t even begin to count how many times in the past year, as yarn pooling began to trend, that I have been making feeble tries to make a go of it. After a few failed attempts, I would give up. Many people here on YARNutopia would ask for my help or write to see a demonstration, and I had to honestly admit defeat. Yarn pooling was something I wrestled with and lost. I started to reconcile it was NOT for me.

 

A few weeks ago, I was invited to participate in a Yarn Pooling Blog Tour hosted by Marly Bird. She has a great book Yarn Pooling Made Easy. I was provided a copy of the book and asked to give one of the projects a try by combining her detailed instructions with her comprehensive video tutorials. This was my chance! My last-ditch effort to make it through and understand this incredible technique. So, I agreed. I WAS going to overcome this challenge! I was bound and determined THIS time I was going to succeed.

 

Crochet Yarn Pooling

The instructions say to use a variegated yarn with a repeated color way. I had my yarn Red Heart Super Saver in Platoon that I felt would be perfect for this. I decided to not over shoot my first attempt by getting over zealous taking on a huge pattern, so I decided on a scarf as my first project to try yarn pooling. I was ready. I was excited. I was optimistic. I was geared up to tackle something that previously tried to defeat me. This time I was NOT to be defeated!!!

However, things did not go as smooth as I had hoped in the beginning. Have you ever tried to do something and no matter how hard you try, something just doesn’t click? I lacked the coordination to understand some key elements and my first several attempts I had to frog my work. I was not going to let Marly Bird down! So, I kept going. I watched her video tutorials and read the instructions in her book very carefully. I started over and over. I put my headphones on, tuned out everything, and listened to each word of her videos. By the time I reached the end of her segment, I was sooooo inspired!! Marly, you inspire me so much!

Crochet Yarn Pooling

I began to work my yarn into to the right calculations and GUESS WHAT, it works!!!! It worked out for me!!! I started to see how the pooling effect created the argyle pattern, and boy, I did an epic happy dance all over my house!!!! How thrilling!! This has been the ONLY helpful guide for me to be able to succeed on something that I was about to give up on. I am typically NOT a quitter and thank goodness, because if I was, I would not have found my way to this great book and Marly’s fantastic videos and I would not be Yarn Pooling today! I am so thankful to have stuck it out and succeeded. Marly, thank you!

 

To make this even more exciting, I am giving ONE copy of this book away to ONE lucky follower here on YARNutopia!!!! NOW YOU TOO CAN HAVE THE KEY TO UNLOCK THE MYSTERY OF YARN POOLING OF YOUR VERY OWN!!
WOOT, WOOT!!

Congratulations to the winner Stephanie Parish Buser!!

Who Can Enter? Only open to those 18 years of age or older and US residents. (sorry…legal reasons prevent us from making this open worldwide)

My Giveaway will end on September 20th, 2018 at 11:59pm and the randomly chosen winner will be announced and contacted on September 21st. The winner then has until September 24th to claim their prize.

Here is a schedule of the blogs that will be sharing a review and doing a GIVEAWAY:

I can’t express the excitement it is as a seasoned crocheter to be able to find a way for this to make sense!  Now the opportunities are endless! If you are like me, struggling to understand this technique, this is a fabulous instruction manual and pattern book you won’t want to miss. Combine these great instructions from the book with Marly’s step by step video tutorials and you have yourself a winning combination!!

A few notes:

My persistence paid off in one day! From the moment I sat down to try this to reaching success, was only a few short hours.

My scarf using the pattern in her book took me a combined 4-5 total hours once I got the hang of yarn-pooling.

The book is titled ‘Yarn Pooling Made Easy’ and you can purchase your copy now.

Crochet Tutorial: The Gentleman’s Scarf

This time of year I am often asked to design gift ideas for men. I literally saw a photo of the perfect scarf and thought “I could make one like that!!” A couple nights ago, I actually dreamt about how I was going to create such a handsome piece.

Gentleman's Scarf

Once I started, it was quite a challenge to put the design in my head into an intricate yet easy to learn cable type stitching and still keep a masculine feel. This is my finished product.

Gentleman's Scarf

“The Gentleman’s Scarf” will be perfect for the man in your life. Mine was willing to model for me to demonstrate how handsome he looks wearing one. Just in time for the holiday season!

Shop Red Heart, America's Favorite Yarn

The bulk of the stitches make it very cuddly and soft. (awww!)

There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
