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:

-The measurements for the cardigan I demonstrate in the video tutorial are: 72 inch panels (36 inches (92 cm) in length from shoulder to bottom), Sleeves measure 20 inches (50 cm). You can make as many stitches as you need because this pattern goes off measurements and not stitch counts.
-On the front/back panels, To make this shorter, make less stitches on your foundation row.
-On the Front/Back Panels, To make this longer, make more stitches on  your foundation row.
-On the sleeves, to make them longer, make more stitches on your foundation row.
-To make the cuff longer, add more rows on your sleeve cuff.
-I used 828 Yards of yarn in this project
-I used Red Heart Grande Yarn in this project, but if you cannot access this yarn, go to YARNSUB.com and search “Grande” yarn, and click on Red Heart Yarns Grande. It will list all the yarns that are equal to this yarn so you can find a similar weight yarn if you cannot get Grande.

Crochet Tutorial: Frederick the Misfit Monster Toy

Crochet Tutorial: Frederick the Misfit Monster Toy

 

I had the wonderful pleasure of spending a few days with my sweet nephew. On Saturday afternoon, he and I set out to work on creating a character out of his imagination. My nephew chose the colors and the features as well as giving him a name. Meet Fredrick the Misfit Monster! This darling amigurumi was born from the imagination of a very special 4 year old.

 

Frederick is huggable and silly. He has lost most of his teeth but 3, from eating lots of candy that he sneaks at night. He loves adventures, finds mischief and mayhem, yet loves to cuddle. He protects and scares away creatures in the closet and under the bed or behind curtains! He likes to read books and play games on the iPad. Fredrick is a best friend. This is a great project to involve children. They can choose colors and features, as well as giving their very own misfit monster a name and personality! This simple project is sure to delight any child!!

Crochet Tutorial: Munching Monster Laundry Bag

Crochet Tutorial: Munching Monster Laundry Bag

This Monster has the munchies! My Munching Monster Laundry Bag Hamper is ready to chow down on your child’s dirty laundry. A great way to create a teaching moment and pint-sized responsibilities while having fun doing it! Socks, pajamas, t-shirts, towels, and undies, this monster will gobble them all up! This project uses Red Heart Super Saver Stripes Yarn!

There are a lot of ideas in this one project! Unleash your creativity and turn this project into a body pillow by stuffing it and sewing the mouth closed. You could make it shorter and add straps to the back to make a backpack. Adding a long strap, you could create a cross-body bag. You could put a handle on it and make it a cute Halloween candy sack!

Change the colors and add bows and eyelashes to make this more gender specific. There are so many cute ideas packed into one great pattern!! Have fun!!

Crochet Tutorial: Candy Corn Leg Warmers

Crochet Tutorial: Candy Corn Leg Warmers

Who else is ready for hoodies, bonfires, crisp cool air, hot cocoa, football, and beautiful fall colors? This time of the year brings to mind all things cozy, and that is the premise for my candy corn leg warmers!

These colors always bring to mind the harvest season, Halloween, and cooler days. Today’s tutorial shows how to create these great pair of leg warmers in striped yellow, orange, and white.

Candy Corn Leg Warmers

 

My original pattern developed out of a discovery I made at a thrift shop. While hunting through a basket of vintage jewelry, I stumbled across a pair of wooden maple leaf earrings. I immediately thought these would make great buttons, but what to pair them with?! After careful consideration, I decided to remove the backings and drill some button holes and transform these into an embellishment for these leg warmers!

These are SUPER easy to learn and you can adapt these to any size and any color you’d like! They do not have to be Halloween themed. You can make them one plain color, you can make them team sport colors, you can get as creative as you desire! The video shows how to change color to create this striped effect, but if you wish to continue in a solid tone, just follow the directions without the color changes.
