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.

All books will be sent at the same time at the end of the tour, regardless of when the winner was chosen. Winner must have a US or Canadian address.

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: Steampunk and Stars Cowl

Crochet Tutorial: Steampunk and Stars Cowl
steam·punk: /ˈstēmˌpəNGk/ noun — a style of design and fashion that combines historical elements with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction.

This Steampunk and Stars Cowl has me feeling fierce! This design includes elements like buttons, cogs, chains, and leather to add to the steampunk fashion feel. I was working to achieve a more edgy design by adding asymmetry.

Change this look up by eliminating or replacing the buttons with other embellishments. Add fringe to both sides. Change the yarn color for an entirely different look. Bright colors would add whimsy whereas dark colors would add edge.

-You can adjust the size for measurements but this one measures 12 inches wide which is 30 centimeters and it is over 6 feet long but you can make it shorter if you’d like.

Crochet Tutorial: Winter Snowman Coasters

These Winter Snowman Coasters will be perfect on any table this holiday! Make this fun holiday accent for your guests. It’s perfect for serving your beverages! Try a new technique of working with cork board to crochet with!

snowmancoaster2
Some fun suggestions by changing up the color are that you can change the look of the coasters. Going around the coaster with black yarn and putting a beak instead of a carrot nose, you can transform these snowmen into penguins or other varieties of characters. Want to change the shape? Use square coasters or cut squares out of your cork board and work around the squares using the same technique. Also, you can use the same technique on a larger cork and create a single hot pad for your Christmas Tabletop. Have fun with these ideas! They don’t have to be holiday related. You can make a few changes and have them all year round.

Crochet Tutorial: Classic Man Scarf

It starts with a chill in the air and dew on the grass, the time of the year when we begin to add an extra layer for warmth. Why not do that in style for someone you love? With a touch of old-fashioned elegance and sophisticated elements of Jay Gatsby, The Classic Man Scarf is the perfect accessory for the man in your life. I have a personal bias with this particular model, being that he happens to be the man in MY life! This scarf is very versatile and can be worn in a multitude of ways as shown in these photos. The length provides possibility for many different looks.

ClassicManScarf

ClassicManScarf6
ClassicManScarf3

I combined a variety of stitches and textures to create this lovely piece that is sure to please even the most fashion conscious individual. Using the waffle stitch, half double crochet ribbed stitches, and waves, this multi-textured scarf is a perfect design for anyone. My design was made with three colors of soft yarn giving it all the comfort and warmth needed when we can’t get away from the cold weather.

Whether it’s a cool autumn day and Jack Frost is nipping at your nose or there is a Polar Vortex chilling you to the bone, The Classic Man Scarf is the perfect accessory for all those times you need to keep yourself nice and toasty, but still look fantastic doing it!

Crochet Tutorial: Summer Shawl

It’s that time of the year when those summer days can turn into cool summer nights and you need that perfect wrap just to cut that chill while you’re sitting around a fire or taking a walk along the beach. Why not create this shawl that would be beautiful and the perfect accessory to any outfit. It would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift, a gift you could make for your bridesmaids, or a hit for anyone on your gift list, any time of the year!

I used this ombre yarn by Lion Brand Yarns Shawl in a Ball in the color Community Coral. I fell in love with the feel and look of this textile! I designed a simple repeat pattern making this a quick, easy, yet stunning wrap in less than two days. Perfect for a cool evening to wear over a sundress or top. The versatility of this piece allows for several ways to wear!

Summer Shawl
This summer shawl is perfect for cooler nights, chilly mornings, and anytime you need to be wrapped in a bit of warmth. Shown below is the front view with it tied.

In an earlier post, I had mentioned that Nate bought me yarn this past Christmas. Some may think, “Well that is a no brainer, she crochets, she loves yarn. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!” Right? But to that, I say this: I thought about this man going through yarn types and brands trying to choose the right ones, the best fibers, deciding on variety without a clue as to what he’s doing, except he was doing it because he loves me. It made my heart skip. The picture of this in my mind was incredibly endearing.

Today’s leaf and floral neck lariat necklace is inspired by some of those skeins of yarn and the love behind them. Leaves are symbolic of life and the red flower symbolizes love. So, it is appropriate that it all comes together in this great creative piece. He truly has woven his way right into my heart giving it life. What better way to show that love than through my work?!

Lariat
You can make this as a belt, as a bunting, garland. You can customize this piece to your own desire. Make it longer, make it shorter, make it in different colors! The possibilities are endless!

Crochet Tutorial: Turtleneck Fringe Cowl

Fashion has always been a passion for me. I am often inspired by different designs, colors, and styles. I’m always trying to think outside the box and create pieces that are fashion-forward. This particular piece is no exception. The minute I saw the yarn, I knew it had to be made into something very special. Somehow this particular piece came to mind. This didn’t just come from nowhere, there’s a special story behind the making of this cowl….

Turtleneck Fringe Cowl
Over the holiday season, Nate asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I jokingly said, “If you buy me yarn, I will love you forever!” (my love isn’t contingent on whether he buys me yarn, don’t worry. Haha!!)

On Christmas day, he gave me a gift bag with wrapped gifts inside. I was giddy with excitement because I picked up one package thinking it was yarn, and I squealed out, “I love you forever!!” I tore at it to find a stuffed penguin that looked like a skein of yarn, and the joke was on me! My face must have registered every emotion when I was caught in his prank!

PenguinDoesn’t it look like it could be a skein of yarn??

Turtleneck Fringe Cowl
But, further into my package were skeins and skeins of yarn! He gave me two engraved crochet hooks as well. All these gifts had to be put to some amazing use. This gift inspired me so much! I made this crochet turtleneck fringe cowl to add to my Downtown Collection fashion line.

For anyone looking for something different during the cold weather, this design is for you. A special note to my sweetheart, Nate: I will love you no matter what, but your support and sharing anything yarn related with me is a one way ticket to having my heart forever! Thank you for the inspiration! ♥

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!

Gentleman's Scarf

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

Crochet Tutorial: Cheshire Cat Hoodie

Crochet Tutorial: Cheshire Cat Hoodie

As winter approaches, the need to bundle up becomes more prevalent. From top to bottom, we pile on layers to keep ourselves from the bitter cold. Although I made this particular hood for my costume this Halloween, once made, I realized how warm this actually is (since I wore it all night long).

Cheshire Cat
Many of my blog followers on Facebook and Instagram inquired about me making a video tutorial for this project. It occurred to me that this would be perfect for the season as winter apparel. It offers a very stylish option, and it is very different than your average winter hat or scarf.

Cheshire Cat


This is a cat hoodie of course, however, it is also very versatile. You do not have to put on the ears, or you can replace the ears with bear ears or fox ears. Custom make this to any animal of your choice! The creativity that is in this project knows no bounds! You could take it to a different level and line the face with fur around row 1. I’m sure you will find this to be a very fun and easy project. These make great gifts, and they are incredibly warm to wear!

Cheshire Cat
When I was looking up inspiration online for the Cheshire Cat, I came across this photo. I could NOT find a pattern, but knew I could make one myself. This photo served as the inspiration to the hood I made. The original designer for this hood shown below is Archaical. You can find her work here on here website or here on her Facebook.

Inspiration
Below are some more photos from this Halloween. You can see Nate and my full length costumes as well as a close-up. I tried to pay attention to the details in creating both ensembles to emulate the characters from Alice in Wonderland.

Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter
If you are interested in making the full costume, You can find the Leg Warmers pattern here. You can find the Hand warmer Paws Pattern here. You can find the Cheshire Cat Tail pattern here. And you can find the Top Hat that Nate is wearing right here! Enjoy!

Hand Beaded Silk Yarn - 7 Pack

Crochet Tutorial: Passion for Fashion Scarf

I know it’s early in the season, but my rule of thumb is that there’s always a good time to sink your crochet hook in a great fashion item. Infinity scarves are quite the statement accessory! This one is no exception! It’s my Passion for Fashion Infinity Scarf. This very easy and fantastic scarf makes a bold statement with the massive wooden buttons on it. The buttons I got on Etsy at Wood Be Fancy.  You should check out all the cool buttons that are available on that shop!

This is perfect for the approaching cold weather in the winter. Anyone is sure to stand out in this piece. This can be worn with a heavy sweater, a cardigan, over a sweatshirt, or with a great winter jacket!

From the moment I tried it on to showcase it in this blog, I fell in love with its versatility. I have to keep one for myself. I have a feeling that a lot of you will think the same way when you’re all finished making one!! After I made the charcoal one in this tutorial, I started picturing it in bold colors such as a deep wine red color or even a dark turquoise or a rich blue tone. This is a fun project geared toward beginners, but anyone can enjoy this project!
