FREE Written Crochet Pattern: The Uptown Blanket Scarf

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: The Uptown Blanket Scarf
As soon as the summer ends and the temperature starts to change, I get started on all my fall and winter fashion pieces. I love creating new designs for Nate, but this piece isn’t just for the guys in your life! This can be made for anyone. Here, I am using Comfort yarn from Red Heart Yarns. This yarn is perfect for this Diamond Trellis stitch! It gives it dimension and texture to create a wonderful look. It also provides warmth without being too heavy. Blanket scarves are becoming more and more popular. I love the extra wide look of this piece.
Don’t need a scarf? You can take this pattern and by repeating it, turn this into a great blanket. How’s that for versatility?

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sweet Dream Romper

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sweet Dream Romper

This Sweet Dream Romper has been designed to be part of our Halloween costume. I am planning to release pieces of this ensemble from now through mid-October. Each piece will complete our three cosplay costumes that we designed for “Where The Wild Things Are,” a book by Maurice Sendak. Nasir is going to be Max. Here is the first installment to his costume. This one-piece romper , although made for this purpose, was actually designed with versatility in mind. I considered the other possibilities this could be used for. This could be added to a winter baby layette set. You could change the buttons or eliminate them, make it in any color, or sew on leather knee patches for when a baby crawls.

So many options in one piece! I have released the written pattern that you can find here. Below is the video tutorial for The Sweet Dream Romper. Enjoy!

Each year, we try to find a fun and exciting costumes for Halloween, and I love to take you on this journey with me. As each piece of the costume is released, I will update my blog to bring more and more pieces to life. Be sure to follow along to see all these updates!

The first installment of this year’s Halloween costume, is this Sweet Dream Romper. Although my intent is to use this outfit for Nasir’s cosplay costume as Max from the book “Where The Wild Things Are,” you will be able to follow through my video tutorial to create one of your own as part of a baby layette. 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! One thing I think we can all agree on is that Nas will be the perfect Max. 😍 He’s already happy about it!

Below is the release of my *FREE* written crochet pattern for those who prefer the written instructions. The video tutorial for this pattern can be found here!

Candy Swirl Pillow Remix

Candy Swirl Pillow Remix

I was browsing through Instagram, and I came across a fun living-room set up that was decorated in shades of grey and white. There were a lot of yarn accents including a collection of throw pillows throughout the room. Several were fun knit or crochet looking patterns that really caught my eye. It really started to give me some inspiration.

Some of you may recall, last Halloween, Nate and I wore cosplay costumes inspired by Willy Wonka. Part of the set up we had included the Candy Swirl Pillows. Today, after seeing all the fun ways to dress up a room with throw pillows, I decided to embellish my already existing pillows with some poms to give them a little fun boho flair! This is the Candy Swirl Pillow Remix! Simply put, I took an old pillow, with a little bit of tweaking, I made it new again! How fun it is to add a small detail and change the look of this project!

Get the pattern for the pillow covering here!

Here is a step by step photo tutorial of how I made my poms.

I received this cute pom maker from pommaker.com, so I am using that today. You can click the first photo below to shop for these fabulous pom makers!

First I wrapped the yarn around each of the wooden pieces (there are instructions in the pom making kit to walk you through)

Then I cut the yarn.

 

Once they are both wrapped and cut, I put the outer pieces on the spokes of the inner wooden pieces.

Then I squeezed with one hand, and cut the strands down the middle with my other hand.

That’s what it looks like when all the pieces are cut! I had to be sure not to let go of it at this point!

 

Then I took a long strand of yarn and tied a few knots around the center of these little strands, as you can see in the photo below.

 

 

Then I popped off all the pieces and a pom was made!!

 

 

I trimmed any longer strands to make it a perfect pom!

 

 

 

Here is the pillow I made and added poms to the outer edge!

 

See the full video tutorial on how to make this pillow here:

Changing Gauge to Adjust Size

Changing Gauge to Adjust Size

I am often asked if one of my patterns can be resized. I know that it can become frustrating to see a pattern you love and yet, not be able to make it in the size you need. I do try to make most patterns in a variety of sizes to accommodate all, but sometimes, the pattern I design is size specific. I don’t have a variation or the stitch counts to make it in other sizes. Today’s blog is JUST A GUIDELINE to show you how changing your hook size can make a pattern slightly smaller or bigger JUST by changing this one detail.

Experimenting!

I decided to do a quick trial experiment because, not only do I love to crochet, I love to get answers to longstanding questions. The question posed to me quite often is: Can I make this pattern bigger or smaller?

If I don’t have the pattern adapted to various sizes, I have offered the suggestion to try different hook sizes.
Here I give you a better visual on how much changing the hook size does increase or decrease the size of your piece.

In this experiment, I took six different hooks:
1. D-3.25mm crochet hook
2. F-3.75mm crochet hook
3. G-4.25mm crochet hook
4. H-5.00mm crochet hook
5. J-6.00mm crochet hook
6. K-6.50mm crochet hook

I then crocheted THE EXACT SAME granny square using each different hook. (See this pattern here for the granny square pattern)

I used Red Heart With Love yarn in color Jadeite (worsted weight) Size 4 Medium (equal to DK or Aran yarn).

Once I completed each square, I placed all together using a US quarter coin as a point of reference to show proportion.
Each square increased somewhat in size but also, notice the stitching is not as tight as you increase the size.

The difference in size from the first square using a D-3.25mm hook to the last square using the K-6.50mm hook is a difference of 3 inches (~8cm)

Visuals Help!

If you are like me, it is so much easier to have a visual to be able to put into perspective how much change happens just by changing your hook. It helps so much to see it right in front of your eyes rather than trying to picture it in your mind how much difference this will make.

This trick may not work for ALL patterns but for some, this adjustment will be very handy in making something just a bit smaller or larger.

Keep in mind, this doesn’t allow for HUGE variations in size but just enough for some to get the desired result if you want to go a bit up or down on a specific pattern.

Also, remember, the larger you go, the looser and open the stitches will appear.

Share with us your experience if YOU have tried resizing by changing your hook gauge. Let us know how that helped you make a pattern smaller or larger. We’d love to hear from you!

 

Below are photos of each square by itself using the quarter as a point of reference.

Crochet Tutorial: Egg Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Egg Amigurumi

I’ve been a little “terra-fried” to try another year of Valentine Puns. I was so “eggs-cited” to give it a “fry,” but at the last minute I “scrambled” to come up with some funny, punny projects. So, I sat down with an “egg-spresso” and got to work on seven new puns that are pretty “egg-cellent” if you ask me! I hope these are “eggs-actly” what you are looking for this Valentine’s season! I love making up these ridiculous “yolks” and I hope they “crack” you up as much as they do for me! Ok, Ok, “omelette” this slide by for now and I “shell” put the puns to rest. I am sure you all are “shell-abrating” today’s stream of punny-ness is over!

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

Memory Lane 2018

Memory Lane 2018

Each year, at this time I find myself becoming very reflective. I look back and see how far I have come in the past 12 months. This particular year has been a year of big changes and growth not only here on YARNutopia, but in my personal life as well. The following blogs are my top memories of 2018.

#8:

One of the highlights of the past year was day-trippin’ through three states just for yarn. We are all crazy like that…amiright? Follow this link below to read about this fun adventure I had with my mom!

#7:

Well it is no secret that 2018 was a BIG year for me! As we work our way through these memories, one of the best parts was getting to share my wedding day with my squad! My girls lived all over the globe, and it was such a special event for us to all get together for my wedding. Sarah came from Comoros, Africa, Nida arrived from Texas (and now is studying medicine in the Caribbean!!), and Samantha lives on the complete opposite side of the state from me. My wedding was one day where all my beauties could be with me and share in my joy. To commemorate this occasion, I made each of my bridesmaids these beautiful shawls! This memory is such a special one that holds such a dear place in my heart. Click the link below to read all about it and to discover the pattern for a great shawl!

2018 we launched our first mailing list! I did my first email blast and sent out a fun newsletter! So much to share in the new year so be sure to follow the link below so you too can be part of my email inner circle!

#5:

Oh boy! One of the most hilarious and wild weekends I had this past year was a trip to Chicago for Stitches Midwest! That was one weekend I will never forget! Have you attended one of these events? If not you will have to check it out! Go to the blog below and be sure to read all about our weekend adventure with The Marly Bird, Erin Lane, Leon Alexander and so many others! I still smile when I think of all the fun!

Drop everything and hear this! 2018 was EPIC in more ways than I can count! You know why?? Because this year marked my 10th year without a colon. You know the old saying No Colon, Still Rollin’ – yeah, I know that one isn’t popular among the masses, but that one is practically my life motto! LOL That is because I am living it! 10 years of an insane roller coaster ride with illness that has pretty much commandeered my life. It hasn’t always been pretty, but I have survived, for 10 years, and I thank God every day. I’m not cryin’ nope, not me 😢 It really is a miracle. There’s not much more to say than that. Go read about it…
https://yarnutopia.com/2018/10/30/ten-years-later/

#3:

Ok, well, we all know that my list of fave memories of the past year can’t pass us by without paying a bit of homage to Halloween! Each year, I try to outdo my past costume ensembles, and this year was definitely a challenge. So much thought, planning and preparations go into making these costumes that Nate and I wear each year. Nate was born to wear that Oompa Loompa Costume! We always have so much fun and enjoy bringing this to our YARNutopians each and every year! We already are thinking ahead to 2019. I wonder what’s in store for us next year?! Go check out more great pictures of our costumes here:

Queue the ooooooohhs and ahhhhhhs! Seriously one of the best memories of 2018 was adding these two furballs to our family! We rescued Fern and Jade in April 2018, and for the past 8 months they have brought so much joy and happiness to our home and our lives. I know you will all be seeing them much more in the year ahead. They love the camera! Read about how we rescued these two kitties and how excited we are to have them!

#1:

Ok, so our countdown to the best memory in 2018 goes without saying…It was our wedding. I crocheted so many details for our big day and here I share all the highlights along with some special photos of our wonderful event. Thank you all for being part of not only this special day, but the journey of this past year. I love that you are a part of all these memories! ♥ ♥
https://yarnutopia.com/2018/05/15/its-all-in-the-details-crochet-wedding-flowers/

 

Thank you for sharing this journey with me and letting me stroll down memory lane. The holidays always bring out the nostalgia in me as I look back at all that lead me to this moment and look to what is ahead. Stay tuned for many more exciting events in the new year!! Thank you for joining me on this memorable, yarn-filled journey!

Share in the comments some of your memories of the past year and what is in store for you in the year ahead!

There are a variety of fiber textures that I used to create this eclectic boho-inspired poncho!

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!

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.
