FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Summer Breeze Triangle Shawl

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Summer Breeze Triangle Shawl

I’m springing into summer with a new pattern and lots of new changes. My Summer Breeze Shawl is just what you need on your empty hook! Perfect for weddings, cool summer evenings or wrap around sarong! Made with Lion Brand Mandala Baby yarn in Pixie Hollow is extraordinary as it creates this beautiful colorway in this triangular shawl. It’s a ten row repeat pattern and uses many different stitches making it more of an intermediate pattern but with the video tutorial anyone can do it! Give it a try today!!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Winter Stripes Scarf

This Winter Stripes Scarf is a wonderful way to use up your scrap yarn. Using a multitude of color, this scarf adds a fantastic pop of color to your winter wardrobe. I used the Crunch Stitch throughout this project to create texture for this piece. I love that the added fringe gives this scarf an overall boho feel.

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Winter Stripes Scarf

This Winter Stripes Scarf is a wonderful way to use up your scrap yarn. Using a multitude of color, this scarf adds a fantastic pop of color to your winter wardrobe. I used the Crunch Stitch throughout this project to create texture for this piece. I love that the added fringe gives this scarf an overall boho feel.

12 Days of Christmas: Yarn Art Jingle Trees

12 Days of Christmas: Yarn Art Jingle Trees
Yarn Art Jingle Trees are the next project in our 12 Days of Christmas. I have seen many of these trees adorned in chunky yarn online and in stores. I always see these and think I can make them myself! So I did!
With a few simple tools and a skein of chunky yarn, I was able to assemble these two adorable trees! I added tinsel poms to give a cute burst of color, but you can be as creative and simple as you like!
Supplies you will need:
Chunky Yarn (I used Hometown Yarn from Lion Brand Yarn)
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks
Dowel Rod (small)
Wooden coaster or something for the base
Puff balls (optional)
First we wrapped the cones in yarn using hot glue to help them stick. (Disclaimer: Be EXTREMELY careful with the hot glue, do not burn yourself, it is very difficult to glue and wrap, so maybe having 2 sets of hands to help will be useful)
Once you have them completely wrapped in yarn, stick a dowel rod through the bottom center, then stick the rod into the wooden coaster.
Add puff balls with hot glue to the outside of the tree as well. Add a star on top if you want too! Enjoy!!

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

Bring a bit of *Joy* to your holiday home this season. Using a little yarn-art, you can create this door/wall hanging in a few short minutes using my step-by-step instructions. This lovely homemade, home town decor piece is sure to bring joy and happiness to any home it graces.

Disclaimer: this project requires the use of a hot glue gun. Please be careful using any type of heated tool as these can cause burns. Please supervise children when attempting this project.
I used the following supplies listed below to complete this project

To make the feather, I used the feather crochet tutorial I found on YouTube by Claudetta Crochet and you can view it HERE.

The feather is NOT my own design, but I found the video tutorial extremely helpful in making the one I attached to the wreath in this project.

Supplies needed:
Click on the links to shop online for these same products.

J and Y wooden letters

Mini Wreath (8 inches)

Holly Berries

Hometown Yarn in off white color

Wool Ease yarn in red

Basic Stitch yarn in Green

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks

Red Ribbon

G-4.25mm crochet hook

Scissors

Yarn Needle

 

 

I first wrapped the letters in the chunky yarn and used hot glue to keep it attached

Next, I glued the J and Y to the wreath using hot glue, and I also attached the ribbon on the back of the letter J with hot glue as well

 

 

Next, I crocheted the feather using this video tutorial as a guide

 

Then I attached the feather and the holly berries to the wreath with hot glue

 

 

 

This is how it all turned out!! I LOVE IT!!

12 Days of Christmas: Pine Cone Wreath Ornament

12 Days of Christmas: Pine Cone Wreath Ornament

Grab a glue gun, some pine cones from the yard (or store), and a few yarn scraps to make this sweet holiday wreath ornament! This is a perfect craft for kiddos at home and it takes almost no time at all to assemble.

You will love brightening the cones with colorful yarn. A little hot glue and you form a wreath! Now add a loop for hanging on the tree. You don’t have to make a wreath. Fill a decorative bowl with yarn wrapped pine cones and you have a lovely centerpiece!

I bought these pine cones from the craft store.

 

I disassembled the pine cones from the stem they were attached to.

 

I hot glued the pine cones in a circle form to make the wreath.

 

 

 

Once they were all hot glued together, I made this loop with yarn. I chained 32 and Double crocheted in the 3rd chain from the hook and all the way across, then I sewed the two ends together after I wrapped it around the pine cone wreath.

 

I wrapped yarn inside each of the pine cones in all different colors and glued it in.

 

 

This is the final outcome and how it looks on the Christmas Tree

12 Days of Christmas: Candy Cane Place-card Holder with a Bow

12 Days of Christmas: Candy Cane Place-card Holder with a Bow

On the first day of Christmas we take a candy cane, we add a cute bow, and a lovely name tag…🎶🎵

This is how you make an adorable holiday place card holder. Add this to any table setting to bring some Christmas flair to your family dinner!

Here is a list of supplies I used:

Candy canes

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks

Size G-4.25mm Crochet Hook

Scissors

Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice

Paper for the Name Tag

 

 

To start, I crocheted a bow.

Pattern for this small bow is as follows:

Ch 30

SC in 1st chain to form a loop and continue to SC around in each Ch, Work in continuous rounds working in the BLO for 6 rounds.
Fasten off with a very long tail.

Follow along with this tutorial to learn how to make a bow:

 

You can make your bow any size, but I only chained 30 at the beginning for the foundation row.

 

I used the long strand of yarn that I cut at the end to wrap around the center of the bow to cinch it in.

 

Then I took hot glue and glued the THREE candy canes together so they would stand up.

 

Once they were dried and attached, I hot glued on the bow.

 

I added a place card with the name written fancy. You can add this to your table setting for an extra detail to your holiday decor!

Enjoy!!

 

 

 

I did this project in just a few minutes. It was sooooo easy!!

Happy Halloween 2020

Happy Halloween 2020

We had such a fantastic Halloween, and I wanted to share all of our costume pieces in one blog post.  Below you will see each piece that I crocheted and links to their crochet patterns. Simply click the image or the title of each pattern to go to its pattern.

Here is our little Bee Family Photo!

 

 

 

For my Bee Hive costume, I made one large spiral using Lion Brand Basic Stitch yarn.
I do not have a crochet pattern for this, however, at the very bottom of this blog post, I will share a mini “recipe” of how I created this beehive.

 

I added mini Felt Bees that I purchased on Amazon. You can get them here.

 

 

 

For Nate’s costume, I purchased a Bee Keeper Outfit on Amazon. You can find it here.

I also used some Tulle from the fabric shop and added it to the Honey Bee Sunhat that I made for his costume. I added the same Felt Bees to his hat with floral wire.

 

 

On Nasir’s Costume, I share all the components of his costume in this blog post here. I made the wings out of Nylons and coat hangers. I have a FREE crochet pattern and video tutorial for his whole outfit. It’s called the Baby Bee Costume and you can find it here.

 

 

This Baby Bee was *SO* done after our photo shoot!

Thank you for another fabulous year of costumes!

Happy Halloween!!

 

 

 

Below you will find information about the Large Bee Hive costume that I am wearing:

 

For the body and hat:
Work in continuous rounds
Ch 35
HDC in 1st Ch to form a ring, and in the next 23 chs, SC in last 11 chs.
Then I just HDC’d in each HDC st and SC’d in each SC st until it formed a spiral. I stuffed this tube as I went.

I did the same exact thing for my hat. I made 4 spirals for the body and 3 spirals for the hat.
I sewed the beginning and end of the tube and sewed it together in the shape of a beehive.

For the straps, I just did a row of 50 double crochet stitches to make a basic strap and sewed it in on the inside of the bee hive.

I hope this gives you a good idea of how I made the bee hive. If you are interested in making it and have questions, feel free to email me (nadia@yarnutopia.com) and I can help you as best as I can!!

Enjoy!

Here’s the pattern!!

 

Triangle #1

 

(Click the image above to go to the video tutorial)

This part of the bag was designed and made by Nicki. She filmed a tutorial which you can find HERE.

**Make 6 Triangles**

Start with a color you only have ONE skein of.

I picked Caution Yellow (Nicki’s image above shows color Freesia)

Each triangle has the dimensions 7.5 x 5.5 (if stretched it could also be 6 inches). Try to make sure your measurements match that.

The triangle is made in rows and finished off with 1 row (just one edge) of single crochet stitches. All atc’s are the height of a tr (so 3 stacked sc’s) which are counted as a stitch.

Row 1: 1 atc, 3 dc, 1 tr, 3 dc, 1 tr, turn, close the magic ring

Row 2: [1 atc, 2 dc] all on top of the tr from the previous row, 1 dc on top of each dc from the previous row, until you reach the tr from previous row, place [2 dc’s, 1 tr, 2 dc’s] on top of the tr from previous row, 1 dc on top of each dc from the previous row, until you reach the last stitch, place [2 dc’s and 1 tr] on top of that last stitch, turn

Rows 3 – 5: repeat R2

Once you have finished the last row, simply crochet evenly 24 sc’s across the long side of the triangle (where the edges of the rows are).

Fasten off, weave in ends.

 

Triangle #2

(Click the image above to go to the video tutorial)

This part of the bag was designed by me, Nadia, from YARNutopia. I filmed a video tutorial which you can find HERE.

Make 6 Triangles

Use a color that you have ONE skein of

I picked Marina

Each triangle has the dimensions 7.5 (long side) x 5.5 (both short sides)  (if stretched it could also be 6 inches). Try to make sure your measurements match that.

Start with a Magic Ring (or Ch 4, sl st in first ch to form a ring)

Row 1: Ch 1, [SC, Ch 2, SC] into Ring, Ch 1, Turn.

Row 2: SC in first SC, Ch 1, [SC, Ch 2, SC] in ch 2 sp, Ch 1, SC in last st, Ch 1, Turn.

Row 3: SC in first st, Ch 1, SC in next Ch 1 Sp, Ch 1, [SC, Ch 2, SC] in Ch 2 sp, Ch 1, SC in next Ch 1 sp, Ch 1, SC in last st, Ch 1, Turn.

Row 4: SC in first st, *Ch 1, SC in next ch sp, repeat from * until Ch 2 sp, Ch 1, [SC, Ch 2, SC] in ch 2 sp, **Ch 1, SC in next ch 1 sp, repeat from ** until last st, Ch 1, and SC in last St. Ch 1, Turn.

Rows 5-14: Repeat Row 4
when your triangle is big enough, SC along the LONG side of your triangle 24 sts evenly. Fasten off and weave in all your ends.

 

Base of the Tote Bag

 

(Click the image above to go to the video tutorial)

This part of the bag was designed and made by Nicki. She filmed a tutorial which you can find HERE

**Make 1 rectangle**

Crochet with a color you have TWO skeins of. But you will likely use only one of the skeins for this rectangle. Nicki used the color Mulberry in the photo above, I used  Asphalt Heather for mine.

The rectangle needs to measure 7.5 x 15 inches at the end.

Remember, measurement is more important than row or stitch count!

Ch 53

Row 1: starting from the 2nd ch, 1 thermal stitch in each ch, turn

Rows 2-46: ch 1, 1 thermal stitch in each st, turn

*remember that you need to count each side to know the full number of rows

*If you need to do more or less rows to get the measurement correctly, then do that.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

 

Square Pattern

(Click the image above to go to the video tutorial)

This part of the bag was designed by me, Nadia, from YARNutopia. I filmed a video tutorial which you can find HERE.

**Make 6 squares**

Crochet with a color you only have TWO of (not the same as the rectangle).

I used the color Fairy Tale (used a little more than 1 skein). The squares need to measure 5.5 x 5.5 inches at the end.

Magic ring or Ch 4, Sl st to first ch to form a ring.

(RS) Rnd 1: Ch up 3 (Counts as DC), 2 DC into ring, [Ch 2, 3 DC into ring] 3 times, Ch 2, sl st to beg ch up 3 st, ch 1, do NOT turn.

(RS) Rnd 2: FPDC on first st, *DC in next, FPDC on next, [2 DC, ch 2, 2 DC] in corner, FPDC on next st, repeat from * around, ending with corner sts, Sl st to first FPDC, ch 1, TURN.

(WS) Rnd 3: DC in same st you sl st’d into, [BPDC on next st, DC in next st] until corner, *[2 DC, ch 2, 2 DC] in corner, [DC in next st, BPDC on next st] until corner, repeat from * around, ending with BPDC on last st, Sl st to 1st DC. Ch 1. Do NOT turn.

(if your square is large enough at this point, just skip round 5 and work a single crochet round like round 6 – just be sure to SC around while looking at the RS of your work)

(RS) Rnd 5: DC in same st you sl st’d into, [FPDC on next st, DC in next st] until corner, *[2 DC, Ch 2, 2 DC] in corner, [DC in next st, FPDC on next st] until next corner, Repeat from * around, ending with FPDC on last st, sl st to 1st DC, ch 1, do NOT turn.

Assembly and Straps:

(Click the image above to go to the video tutorial)

This part of the bag was designed by me, Nadia, from YARNutopia. I filmed a video tutorial which you can find HERE.

 

If you have any confusion or difficulty with reading this pattern, please watch the video tutorial to have visual instructions.

**Make 2 Straps**

Start with a long strand of yarn for sewing before making your slip knot.

Round 1: Ch 12 (or any number that is double the width of the strap you would like), SC in the first ch to form a ring and continue to SC around the whole chain (12)

Work in continuous rounds

Rnds 2-50: SC in each st around
(you can make your strap shorter by doing less rounds or longer by doing more rounds depending on your liking)

Attaching the triangles, squares, and rectangle:
Using your rectangle as the base, you will sew that on last.
Line up your squares as diamonds and place the triangles with their short sides touching the squares and their long sides facing out. (See video tutorial for visual instructions)

Using the Single Crochet method, Single crochet your pieces together in a zig-zag direction. When all your squares and triangles are attached, line up the rectangle to the bottom and single crochet around the whole piece attaching it to your triangles.

Top Brim: Single crochet around the whole top of the bag, Continue to SC around the top of the bag until your height is what you want the bag to be. I did 10 rounds around the top of the bag.

Sew your straps on the inside of the bag for a more sturdy hold.

Add a button and a loop to clasp onto the button (optional)

This is the Sign Of The Times Hat and like the name, it really is indicative of the times we are living in.
As we approach colder weather in the northern hemisphere, we will not only have to deal with the cold and wind, but also the season of colds and flu. We are already doing everything to combat Covid-19 by social distancing and wearing masks, washing our hands, and not touching surfaces. My new hat design comes with buttons to accommodate a face-mask and then an attachment to cover the face-mask underneath.

We all want to enjoy the outdoors and with so much ahead of us-sport events, holidays, and other situations where we may be near others, this hat is the perfect way to accommodate a face-mask while battling the elements!
