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!!

 

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

Happy Halloween!

This blog is compiled to show the costumes I made for Nate and myself. You can find them all in one place rather than navigating through my blog to find each individual pattern. Here, I have them all in one spot for your convenience. You can click the links in the paragraphs before the photos or you can simply click the photos to view the video tutorials and written patterns for each individual piece for these costumes.

We start with the Beast Hat. It’s perfect not only for a costume (although, I will warn you, it is very warm, and won’t last long in a crowd of people), but also for cold days! It’s an easily adaptable and versatile pattern by changing colors and embellishments to make any animal-istic creature that you fancy!

Second, you will find the Beast Gloves here. With some simple modifications, you can take these very scary beast gloves and turn them into an easy pair of hand-warmers, just by omitting the finger portion of the pattern. These were made to enhance the crochet costume. Have fun with it!

Next up, by making a very simple chain, I was able to create this embroidery embellishment detail that I sewed onto the costume jacket. I first traced out the design in a chalk pencil, chained the length needed for each scroll design and sewed it on using a yarn needle. I added some lace and just pinned it inside the sleeves and on the collar.

beastcoat

Lastly, I made these simple foot coverings. These are a very basic flat panel using double crochet with an ankle cuff that wraps around the bottom of the leg. Once complete, I sewed fur through the stitches to give it a paw-like look that can be worn over shoes. (These do not have a written pattern or a video tutorial)

For the Princess costume, I created the shirt here. This is one of two pieces for the dress ensemble. I added tulle and embellished the outfit with medium sized flower roses that I used in my Floral Dream Crown tutorial.

bellecostume8

The Princess Costume Skirt was the second piece I crocheted for this ensemble. As you will see in the pattern, you can make this as big or as small as you want it to be. This can modified to be made in a variety of princess dresses by changing colors or adding different embellishments.

Lastly, I added the Enchanted Rose Cape that can be found here as a finishing touch to this princess costume. This cape can also be modified into a poncho or a bridal cape.

Crochet Tutorial: Chunky Beanie Hat with Pom

Every year I get orders for these chunky beanies with a pom. I ended up having to fill a few orders of this hat again this year, and I loved the color combination of this one. Some time ago, I had made a video tutorial on how to make this hat, but I never posted here to my blog. It’s a little bit overdue, but here are the instructions on how to create your very own chunky beanie.

Chunky Hat with Pom
This is such an easy pattern, you can watch the video to see how to make it in smaller or larger sizes to fit all ages.

Crochet Tutorial: One Skein Beret

With the change in seasons, it always gets me excited to try new winter projects. Although today is August 25th, 2015, the temperatures in the past few days were autumn-like here in Wisconsin, USA. The kind of weather where you feel the need to grab a jacket on your way out the door or wrap up on the couch in a warm afghan. I found this pattern by Lion Brand Yarns. It’s for a tam/beret. It appeared to be something I would enjoy making in a quick sitting, and it didn’t disappoint!

One Skein Beret

In less than 2 hours I was able to make this cute chunky yarn tam. After completing the beret, there are a few things I would have changed. One would be the size, I made it a hair too small. I would adjust the hook size and use a 10.00mm hook (which the pattern calls for) instead of the 9.00mm hook I used. I also would have widened the brim band that fits around my forehead maybe making 16 or 18 rounds instead of the 14 that the pattern calls for. That is just my own personal preference to this pattern. Overall, I am very pleased with how this turned out. It is your classic tam beret, and it is extremely fashionable for the upcoming cooler weather.

To view the written pattern, visit Lion Brand’s website or click here. You need to register and have an account with them to view the pattern.
