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!

GAUGE is NOT important, BUT measurements will be! PLEASE MEASURE!

Ch(s): chain(s)
St(s): Stitch(es)
Sl st: slip stitch
SK: Skip
WS: Wrong Side (Back of square)
RS: Right Side (Front of Square
SC: Single Crochet

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.

(WS) Rnd 4: BPDC on same st you sl st’d to, [DC on next st, BPDC on next st] until corner, *[2 DC, ch 2, 2 DC] in corner, [BPDC on next st, DC on next st] until next corner, repeat from * around, ending with DC in last st, Sl st to 1st BPDC, ch 1, 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.

(RS) Rnd 6: SC around entire square putting [2 sc, Ch 2, 2 SC] in each corner, sl st to first SC. Fasten off. Weave in all your ends.

 

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)

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Sign of The Times Beanie Hat

LIMITED TIME ONLY! Get this FREE PDF Digital Download for the LEAP INTO FALL EVENT Hosted By Nicki’s Homemade Crafts HERE!!
(Or click the image below to save the pattern)

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!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos even if we don’t live together.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
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.

Assembly Step:

Sew a button on each side of the hat near the ears so the mask can be buttoned on. I sewed my buttons on the inside of the hat but you can sew them on the outside if you’d like. I liked the idea of flipping the hat brim up and having the buttons exposed if I wanted them to be. Otherwise they are hidden inside and your mask can attach to the inside buttons.

2020 Mystery Crochet-Along

2020 Mystery Crochet-Along

**To see the written instructions for each part, scroll down to the Schedule Section Below.**

This is my first ever Crochet Along that I will be hosting with another blogger and good friend of mine, Nicki from Nicki’s Homemade Crafts! We are keeping it a complete secret until the end, so we are calling this a Mystery Crochet Along to make things interesting.  This entire CAL is free and will be broken up into 5 PARTS throughout 2 weeks with a special *GIVEAWAY* at the end.

This is sponsored by WeCrochet.

The Mystery CAL Hosts

This Mystery CAL is hosted by me, Nadia from YARNutopia and my friend Nicki from Nicki’s Homemade Crafts.

While you work on each part of the crochet pattern, we encourage you to share your progress pictures in our Facebook Groups using the hashtag #MCALNN

You have until 9/24/20 to finish the pattern, post the image of the final product using the hashtag #MCALNN to qualify for the GIVEAWAY!

Part 5:

Now Available by Nadia and NIcki

YAY!! Part 5 – both of our versions are now available!

Did you guess the mystery correctly?

Please remember, in order to support us both, watch BOTH of our VIDEO TUTORIALS ALL THE WAY THROUGH!

That will really help us, and it allows you to learn all the things you need to make a decision which PART 5 you will go with.

Mine – Nicki’s – OR your own version

Now let’s get right into MY part 5:

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

 

Here’s the Video tutorial:

Straps: **MAKE 2**

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)

Nicki’s Version:

Click on the image to see her version or click the links below the image to go to her tutorial or her written instructions. Her bag looks FABULOUS!!!!!!

If you are interested in trying Nicki’s version of finishing the bag, Find her tutorial here: https://youtu.be/7zj7BUOaaHM

Also, find her written instructions here: https://www.nickishomemadecrafts.com/mystery-crochet-along/

Now, make sure to show off your FINAL RESULT as a picture in our Facebook Groups (both Nicki’s and Nadia’s) and use the hashtag #MCALNN for us to see and celebrate you!

After all the parts are published, I will publish this pattern as a stand-alone – still free – crochet pattern shortly after.

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Offbeat Baby Cardigan

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Offbeat Baby Cardigan

Before you know it, sweater weather will be upon us here in the northern hemisphere. I know it is hard to think about it on a balmy summer day, but as we have learned in previous years, time flies. Why not get ahead of the season with some awesome baby wear? I made this Offbeat Baby Cardigan for Nasir, and it turned out so sweet!! Even though it is way too hot to be dressed in this sweater today, my sweet boy still modeled it like a champ!

Using an eclectic mix of thick and thin striping, this mismatched pattern makes a striking cardigan that is a compliment to any baby wardrobe. I made this one using Brava Yarn by WeCrochet (KnitPicks) in the colors Asphalt Heather and Denim. This combo works so nicely for Nas, but it can be done in any combination of color. And don’t worry if the stripes throw you off, you can follow along without changing colors and make this solid or use only the elements you like to make it your own. Be sure to share your photos with me when you finish!!

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

Materials you will need:
Get the supplies individually by clicking the links below
Brava Worsted by WeCrochet in any color (I used Clarity 1080 yards, and Sky 200 yards)
Mighty Stitch by WeCrochet in Sunshine (200 yards)
Size I-5.50mm Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle
Scissors

NOTES:

-Use a smaller hook to make these smaller
-Use a bigger hook to make these bigger
-The video tutorial and written pattern showcase a size Women’s Large US size.
-This is written in US terms
-The neck hole measures 20 inches around (and it stretches)
-The shoulder is 5 inches sewn
-The sleeve is 24 inches long, but if you do more or less rows you can make them as long as you want.
-The Length from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the shirt is 23 inches (but you can make yours longer if you want it to be a tunic style)
-The bust measurement is 40 inches around
-This project goes off measurements, and the front and back panel need to be half of your bust measurement wide. (mine is 20 inches wide because my bust is 40 inches around)
-This piece is made crocheting the front panel, then the back panel, then sewing them together, then adding the sleeves last.
-This took about 3 days for me to create.
-You can check out yarnsub.com to see yarn substitutions that are equal to the WeCrochet yarn I used in this project.
