FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Ruffled Trim Sweater Vest

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Ruffled Trim Sweater Vest

I decided to get back into fashion pieces. I have been taking time to ease back into filming following Nasir’s diagnosis and felt it was time to dip my hook back into the fashion pool with my Ruffle Trim Sweater Vest. I used Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend Yarn on this piece and am SO PLEASED! This is so cute over a long sleeve t-shirt or blouse, but can also pair nicely with a tank top for a warmer weather look. If you are so inclined, you can also wear nothing under it and just use a little boob tape to hold it in place (or wear it over a sexy bra). You can adjust the length to make it a crop top or a little longer for a full vest look. This can be entirely flexible to your taste. Add bows to the front (check my vid here) or adorn with floral appliques! You can make the same pattern multiple ways for a new look every time! This would also make a great gift!!

Lion Brand Yarn Comfy Cotton Blend (1100 yards or 3 cakes of this specific yarn)
Size -H-5.00mm Crochet Hook
-Measuring Tape
Yarn Needle
Scissors

NOTES:

-Use a smaller hook to make this smaller

-This is written in US terms
-This took about 1 week to make but I did not work on it continuously.
-You can check out yarnsub.com to see yarn substitutions that are equal to the Lion Brand yarn I used in this project.
-This pattern with video tutorial shows the measurement as 40 inch bust, 40 inch waist, 20 inch length
-For Panel 1 and 2, measure from your armpit to the center of your chest and that is how many ROWS you will make. To measure the foundation chain of these panels, you need to measure from your navel, up around your shoulder to the back where your navel would hit on your back, that measurement needs to be the WIDTH of your panel or the length of the foundation chain. (See video tutorial for more visual instructions)
-For the bottom waist piece, you need to make the foundation chain the whole measurement of your waist and the length of it can be as long as you want to make the shirt.

Special stitches:
Ch(s): chain(s)
YO: Yarn Over
St(s): Stitch(es)
Sl st: slip stitch
SK: Skip
FSC: Foundation Single Crochet
FDC: Foundation Double Crochet
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
DC: Double Crochet

 

Pattern:

Panel 1 and 2 (Left and Right)

Ch 101 (or FSC 100) (yours might be longer or shorter depending on your measurement–see NOTES section)

Row 1: SC in 2nd Ch from hook and across, Ch 1, Turn. (100)

Row 2: SC in each st across, Ch 1, Turn.

Rows 3-28: Repeat Row 2

Row 29: SC across and also continue to crochet around entire piece putting 3 SC in corners.
Sl st to first st and fasten off with long tail for sewing later.
If this is not wide enough or too wide, make more or less rows (See NOTES section for how to measure)
(Be sure to make 2 panels before going onto the bottom piece)

Ruffles:

On outside of each panel attach yarn to corner and only work along ONE SIDE of the panel.
Row 1: Ch 2, 2 DC in each st across, Ch 2, Turn

Row 2: *2 DC in next st, DC in next st, Repeat from * across. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Bottom Waistband Piece:

Ch 120 (or any amount that measures your waist measurement when the foundation chain is semi-stetched)

Row 1: Sl st to first Ch to form a large ring, Ch 1, SC in each Ch around, sl st to first st, Ch 1, TURN.

Row 2: SC in each st around, Sl st to first st, Ch 1, TURN.

Rows 3-24: Repeat Row 2
If you want this piece shorter or longer, feel free to make more or less rows.

Assembly Step:
overlap your panels across the front and back and line them up with the bottom of your shirt. Sew across the front, then across the back. Be sure that your “Seam” on the waistband part is on the back side of your piece when you’re sewing. (See video tutorial for visual instructions on how to line everything up together) I used the whip stitch to sew it all together. Weave in all your ends when finished.

Ties:

Chain 150 (or more) and fasten off (make 2)
Weave them in and out of the waist piece across the front for one and across the back for the other, then cinch it and tie into bows.

Weave in all ends.

Enjoy!!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Chunky Rainbow Pom Scarf

As I work my way back to filming regular crochet tutorials, I am also thinking ahead to our annual Halloween costumes. Here is the first of several pieces that will lead up to our big reveal. This is my Chunky Rainbow Pom Scarf. Perfect for the cool weather we are starting to experience here in Wisconsin.  The time for warm weather apparel is going to be here before we know it and we need to be prepared! My Rainbow 🌈 scarf can be made exactly how I made it but use your imagination and find your own color combination to match your look! There are many possibilities! These make great gifts for anyone. You can always make it with or without poms to change the look! Now that is versatility!! I used Hometown yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. You will want to grab yours too because the softness is divine!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Aspen Baby Blanket

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Aspen Baby Blanket

There many different reasons to be inspired. The Aspen Baby Blanket was inspired by friends celebrating the birth of their baby. The Aspen tree was the foundation for this piece. Created using series of front and back post stitches, it creates a repeat texture leaf pattern.  The striking three dimensional profile of this project took my breath away. When you look at this overall piece you would never guess that it is easier than you think! I used Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling yarn by Lion Brand Yarn and it was THE most luxurious fiber giving this blanket the absolute softest feel. Follow my video tutorial or written pattern and get your started today!

Time to Change Direction

Time to Change Direction

Very often, I’ll make a list or itinerary of what projects I want to work on or which ones pique my interest. I have no idea how many works in progress I have going on because sometimes the inspiration is so strong to work on something and then a few days later…meh…and there it sits. Yet, there is always something that gets my creative energy charged, and that, my YARNutopians, is the key to picking my next project.

What’s on my hook today?

I started off with the best intentions to work on a few summer projects and started them in hopes to film before the snow flies. Well, all the best intentions are just that, intentions. I have them started, they are not going anywhere, I will finish them, SOMEDAY. Just not today. Instead, my direction has changed because of the most exciting news that a close friend had a baby! So, I guess in the world of crochet, we go with the creative flow. Because I went from hooking up a swimsuit cover-up to a baby blanket all in the matter of minutes! Talk about a 180!

Babies and Blankets, oh my!

This particular blanket is using a new design which is so fun to make! I am using Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch in the color Frost to begin this fabulous piece. Look at that texture and softness!

 

There is just something so alluring about this minty color in a baby layette! I can’t wait to see the impact this is going to make when I am done!

What about you?

What inspires you? Is it personal wants or needs? Is it something you are creating to gift to someone? Is it based on when the inspiration hits, or is it the news of someone having a baby, getting married, a holiday or some event that gets your hook moving???

Share your inspiration here!

 

 

Thank You

Thank You

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to read my latest blog post regarding my absence from YARNutopia lately and the next chapter we are heading into with our son Nasir. I have been overwhelmed with so many emotions from the outpouring of love and supportive kind words you left on my posts, in my messages, and the texts I received all day.

There is no way for me to individually reply to all of you, but just know I read every word and took it all to heart. I appreciate all the openness you shared from your personal experiences with friends, family members, or even first-hand experiences with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am currently educating myself on all the different types of therapies and discussing with the specialists what they advise in helping Nasir progress. We hope to see some changes in the first month of this new therapy. We are extremely hopeful.

Reading all the comments and messages that flooded in gave me so much encouragement and hope for my little guy. I know he will accomplish great things in his life, and luckily, we can be his advocates for his success.

In the meantime, please continue to support YARNutopia by sharing my patterns, watching my videos on YouTube, visiting my blog, and purchasing the Wood Be Fancy Crochet Hooks. That helps tremendously during this transition!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all,

Nadia

 

Where’s Nadia?

Where’s Nadia?

Lately, I have been receiving quite a few inquiries asking for new crochet video tutorials. So many of you have been kind and thoughtful to reach out to ask if everything is ok simply because I haven’t posted videos or new content for a while. A lot has been happening and many of the recent events have made it difficult to find time to post or film.

We are halfway through a rough year.

Covid quarantine had already hindered my video production because it was difficult to film, travel, get together with my parents to help with my posts. During this time, Nate and I noticed Nas was not meeting his baby/toddler milestones. We chalked it up to being so isolated from other kids and lack of activities because who has any data about raising babies during a pandemic? Naturally, we didn’t want to think there was anything amiss, but over time we noticed Nasir was falling further and further behind on meeting these markers. He wasn’t responding to his name when called, he was transfixed on specific shows, his attention span was non-existent, he had no fear of danger, he wouldn’t parallel play, didn’t listen, didn’t make eye contact, began hitting aggressively because he was unable to communicate only a few words, he had very little verbal skills and much of what he gained would be lost after one or two days. Yet, here he is so silly, adventurous, funny, smart and just being our cute little Nasir in so many other remarkable ways, we didn’t know if these things we were observing were ok or should we be concerned? He is our first child, so we had no way to fully know.

One or two of these things would be no cause for alarm, but we started adding up more and more then questioning more and more until we couldn’t deny the fact that we might be dealing with something more than just the lack of socialization because of the stay at home order.

Tests, Tests, and more Tests

We took Nas to doctor after doctor, therapist after therapist and to make a long story short, the doctors and specialists have told us he is on the Autism Spectrum. In some of his abilities, he is excelling and is testing in a much higher percentile. In other ways, he is testing quite low. He is struggling with language the most which he is currently testing at an 8-9 month level. He is almost 26 months old at the time I’m posting this. Nate and I felt heartbroken at first, but not for long. We put ourselves into 5th gear and did all the things within our power to make things easier for Nas.

 

Our lives are turned upside down

We have speech therapy and occupational therapy in home (Finally! It was virtual for the first few months because of Covid) The therapists we have in-home were instrumental in pointing us in the right direction to get Nasir the help and support he needs. We were recently approved for even more early intervention programs which we have learned are extraordinary in what they are able to do to help Nas. We are hopeful and optimistic. Although we have to wait a short bit to enroll him for those programs, there is a beginning in sight!

Oh my heart…

Nasir is our whole world. His struggles and his energy have kept our hands and hearts full. There has been little to no time to do more than take care of him, keep up with his never-ending energy, and get him the best resources we can to help him navigate this challenging path. Our entire life has been devoted to his care and to the success he can achieve by this early intervention. I know that this is a process and I have to trust the process, but I am not going to lie, I have cried a million tears, I have filled out thousands of pages of paperwork, I have made a hundred phone calls and some days it still doesn’t feel like enough. I have some serious mom guilt. I can’t even describe it. We are tired, worn out, frustrated at times, hard on ourselves, you name it, we have felt it. I don’t leave the house for days because it’s just too much. We go to my parents’ house for a break from time to time because they are such a big help for us when we are exhausted.

This has tested us as parents, it has tested us as a husband and wife. But at the end of the day, we have this incredibly sweet boy who needs us SO much. Our hearts explode with the love and need to keep him safe and happy and do whatever we can to get him to reach all of his potential. One day, we are hopeful that we may hear him say Mama and Dada..

One day at a time

I haven’t forgotten about my YARNutopian family. Quite the contrary – in fact, I actually feel so anxious to get back to my crochet, but I simply have to sacrifice something in order to manage life right now. I am still working, but very minimally. I still check in every day and post older links to some fun patterns I’ve shared in the past. I have great expectations in the mornings, but by mid-day I am wiped out by the challenges we have in our home at the moment. This is hard.

I am currently working on a new crochet project. It’s going at a snail’s pace, but it is going. I am trying to navigate this new chapter of our lives while giving myself some grace to be ok with the status quo. When the time comes, Nasir will have some one-on-one time with specialists who will provide what he needs to help him talk and reach his goals, then I will have a few hours each day of respite to get back to crochet. In the meantime, I appreciate your patience, support, and understanding as we keep moving forward. Please continue to watch my videos, visit my blog, and support my pages. I promise, I will be back.

With love and hugs,
Nadia

This Winter Stripes Scarf is a wonderful way to use up your scrap yarn. Using a multitude of color, this scarf adds a fantastic pop of color to your winter wardrobe.

12 Days of Christmas: Yarn Art Jingle Trees

12 Days of Christmas: Yarn Art Jingle Trees
Yarn Art Jingle Trees are the next project in our 12 Days of Christmas. I have seen many of these trees adorned in chunky yarn online and in stores. I always see these and think I can make them myself! So I did!
With a few simple tools and a skein of chunky yarn, I was able to assemble these two adorable trees! I added tinsel poms to give a cute burst of color, but you can be as creative and simple as you like!
Supplies you will need:
Chunky Yarn (I used Hometown Yarn from Lion Brand Yarn)
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks
Dowel Rod (small)
Wooden coaster or something for the base
Puff balls (optional)
First we wrapped the cones in yarn using hot glue to help them stick. (Disclaimer: Be EXTREMELY careful with the hot glue, do not burn yourself, it is very difficult to glue and wrap, so maybe having 2 sets of hands to help will be useful)
Once you have them completely wrapped in yarn, stick a dowel rod through the bottom center, then stick the rod into the wooden coaster.
Add puff balls with hot glue to the outside of the tree as well. Add a star on top if you want too! Enjoy!!

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

Bring a bit of *Joy* to your holiday home this season. Using a little yarn-art, you can create this door/wall hanging in a few short minutes using my step-by-step instructions. This lovely homemade, home town decor piece is sure to bring joy and happiness to any home it graces.

Disclaimer: this project requires the use of a hot glue gun. Please be careful using any type of heated tool as these can cause burns. Please supervise children when attempting this project.
I used the following supplies listed below to complete this project

To make the feather, I used the feather crochet tutorial I found on YouTube by Claudetta Crochet and you can view it HERE.

The feather is NOT my own design, but I found the video tutorial extremely helpful in making the one I attached to the wreath in this project.

Supplies needed:
Click on the links to shop online for these same products.

J and Y wooden letters

Mini Wreath (8 inches)

Holly Berries

Hometown Yarn in off white color

Wool Ease yarn in red

Basic Stitch yarn in Green

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks

Red Ribbon

G-4.25mm crochet hook

Scissors

Yarn Needle

 

 

I first wrapped the letters in the chunky yarn and used hot glue to keep it attached

Next, I glued the J and Y to the wreath using hot glue, and I also attached the ribbon on the back of the letter J with hot glue as well

 

 

Next, I crocheted the feather using this video tutorial as a guide

 

Then I attached the feather and the holly berries to the wreath with hot glue

 

 

 

This is how it all turned out!! I LOVE IT!!

12 Days of Christmas: Pine Cone Wreath Ornament

12 Days of Christmas: Pine Cone Wreath Ornament

Grab a glue gun, some pine cones from the yard (or store), and a few yarn scraps to make this sweet holiday wreath ornament! This is a perfect craft for kiddos at home and it takes almost no time at all to assemble.

You will love brightening the cones with colorful yarn. A little hot glue and you form a wreath! Now add a loop for hanging on the tree. You don’t have to make a wreath. Fill a decorative bowl with yarn wrapped pine cones and you have a lovely centerpiece!

I bought these pine cones from the craft store.

 

I disassembled the pine cones from the stem they were attached to.

 

I hot glued the pine cones in a circle form to make the wreath.

 

 

 

Once they were all hot glued together, I made this loop with yarn. I chained 32 and Double crocheted in the 3rd chain from the hook and all the way across, then I sewed the two ends together after I wrapped it around the pine cone wreath.

 

I wrapped yarn inside each of the pine cones in all different colors and glued it in.

 

 

This is the final outcome and how it looks on the Christmas Tree

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!!
