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.

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: Autumn Meadow Granny Square

I created this Autumn Meadow Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting design! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Halloween Table Runner

Crochet Tutorial: Halloween Table Runner

Many times I have made suggestions of ideas on what you can make using the squares from our 365 Days of Granny Squares. Recently, I designed the Spinning Spider Granny Square (Number 266) and The Web We Weave Granny Square (Number 246). I began thinking about a project that I could make to tie these two in together that would work for a table runner or other Halloween related item.

I decided to create a look that has the spider spinning from the web. Doing that required a bit of adjustment on the placement of the spider on the square. In my original Spinning Spider Granny Square Video Tutorial, I demonstrated how to make the square with the spider running vertically on the square. In the Table Runner, I made a few stitch adjustments, I turned the spider to go on a diagonal to achieve the desired results for my finished work, allowing me to run Slip Stitches creating a web strand from the bottom (spinneret) of my spider to the Web square. Please see the video tutorial for instructions below to make this adjustment.

runner

Then, I created duplicate sets of square Numbers 246 and 266 of our 365 Days of Granny Squares to create the ends of our runner. I combined these blocks with the solid granny square (Number 2) that I used with various color combinations of black and orange or black and white to match the other squares in this project. Note: You do not have to make these adjustments nor use my colors. This is creator’s choice.

tablerunner

This video is a tutorial on how to assemble the squares and add the border detail to finish off this great Halloween table runner. You will find the links and videos to the squares that I have already filmed prior to this project. Not interested in the runner? Why not make additional squares to make a lapghan or blanket? Let your imagination be your guide.
