The dress features a ballet neckline that buttons for ease in dressing and undressing. A cute addition to the neckline is a fold just below the buttons, this can be accented in a contrasting color for extra appeal. The dress is made with a slight A-line that falls just below the knee. You can choose to shorten the length of the dress and it becomes a tunic, which can be worn as a sweater with leggings. 

Sizes included in the pattern are

Wrap Me Tender Hooded Scarf Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Wrap Me Tender Hooded Scarf Crochet Pattern
It’s getting cold outside, I think I need a hood and maybe a scarf. Well, why not combine them into one piece. Introducing the Wrap Me Tender Hooded Scarf crochet pattern.
The Hooded Scarf pattern is crocheted to be a convertible accessory. When it is chilly, wrap it around your neck to keep you nice and warm. As the sun comes out and warms you up, simply unwrap the scarf and let it hang to the side to keep you comfortable.
Hooded Scarf Wrap Me Tender

About the Wrap Me Tender Hooded Scarf Pattern

The hooded scarf is made with a combination of double crochets. Since the double crochet is one of the taller stitches, the fabric works up quick and before you know it, your project will be complete. Made in a worsted weight yarn creates an ideal warmth in the stitchwork.
Wrap Me Tender Hooded Scarf
I love the pattern made up in the plum color. But, I can totally picture this in a bright red for the holidays (or for Halloween-Little Red Riding Hood). A lovely self striping yarn would also create a lovely look to the scarf.
The pattern comes in 3 sizes. One for toddlers, one for children an one for adults.

Herringbone Brimmed Beanie Pattern Release

      No Comments on Herringbone Brimmed Beanie Pattern Release
Boys can be so hard to find a good hat pattern for. So I was on the hunt to design something perfect for those boys in our lives. The request I kept hearing from my kids and many of their friends was that they wanted it to cover more of their neck and shade their eyes. I also kept seeing visor beanies at the stores and so I grabbed my hook and yarn and went to work.
It didn’t take long before the Herringbone Brimmed Beanie came to life.
My boys are thrilled with it and I hope you like it too. The herringbone stitch is a turn change of pace to work (the pattern does include a photo tutorial on how to work it).
The Herringbone Brimmed Beanie can be found on:
Here are some more views of the beanie. Thanks for looking and join my on facebook to see all new releases, sales and giveaways.

Cancer Charity Challenge 2014 {Crochet}

      45 Comments on Cancer Charity Challenge 2014 {Crochet}
This past week I lost my Uncle Jeff to cancer. I had to do something, so I quickly threw together a Cancer Charity Event to honor him.
 
My uncle was one of the most lovable guys you could ever meet. He was always smiling, cracking a joke and had one of those laughs that was contagious to everyone that was around him.
 
Cancer is such a difficult journey that too many people have to face in their lives. In honor and memory of my Uncle Jeff I am starting a Cancer Charity Challenge.
 
This challenge is for everyone.
 
Cancer Charity Drive

For Crocheters

For those that know how to crochet, I am offering a coupon code for a FREE HAT PATTERN from my Ravelry shop.
 
I just ask that you pledge to make a minimum of 1 hat (please make more if you can) for someone battling cancer or to donate to a hospital. The hat you make does not have to be made from my pattern, the challenge is just to help someone fighting for their life.
 
Cancer Charity Drive
The coupon for the FREE HAT PATTERN is “CHALLENGE”. This coupon will be good  for any single hat pattern through October 31, 2014.
 
October is Cancer Awareness month, so this is just a jump start for you. If you are unable to donate your hat(s), or if you simply prefer, you can send your hats directly to me and I will donate them on your behalf. Just send me a message on facebook for the shipping address.
 

For Non-Crocheters

Cancer Charity Hat drive
 
If you do not crochet, you can still help. I am committing to making 10 hats and donating them to cancer patients. If you would like to SPONSOR A HAT you can order one in my etsy shop and I will make one (in addition to my 10) and donate it on your behalf. You can sponsor a hat for charity through Cancer Awareness Month (October 2014).
 
Please help me spread the word and share this post, God Bless You All.

See Updates on the Challenge

I plan on continuing this challenge each year. You can check in and see how we have done by clicking this LINK HERE.

Animal Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern

      2 Comments on Animal Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern

Check out how fun these Animal Ear Warmers are!!The perfect accessory to keep those ears warm on colder days, these are perfect for boys and girls of all ages (the pattern has sizes from newborn up to adult). WARNING: Hot Seller at Craft Fairs too…

animal ear warmers

Customize your Animal Ear Warmer Pattern:

Each Ear Warmer begins the same way. Make the basic band in any size from newborn up to adult. You will make it just the way you want with instructions/suggestions for color changes for the different animals. Wearing just the band is also an option for a more simple look.

Make the Band

Build each headband using the instruction for each individual animal. Make pieces for the eyes, nose and ears. Switch up pieces if you like (change out the open or sleepy eyes on the fox & owl) or decide to leave some off for a more simple look like the sock monkey option.

Sew on the pieces for an adorable ear warmer. If you haven’t sewn on appliques before, you may find this tutorial I created helpful, just click HERE. Using this technique can give your crochet work that professional look:

Your completed Animal Ear Warmers are sure to be a huge hit. Request will probably start coming in for more animals, or different colors, but the best part is, the options are endless.

All Boy Applique Crochet Pattern

      5 Comments on All Boy Applique Crochet Pattern
Living in a house of All Boys (well mostly) and am always on the lookout for a way to show off their rough and tuff personality. I was in search of a way to really personalize the crochet hats I was making them.
 
Growing up on a Farm, I thought immediately of tractors and farm equipment. Adding the cute applique to a hat was an immediate favorite and I had to send it off to one of my photographers that I work with. 
 
Tractor Applique Crochet Hat

All Tractors for All Boys

The popular green tractor came out so cute. However, my Dad had a blue tractor when I was really young and then a red one, therefore, I had to whip up a couple more to see how they would look.

Too Cute to Stop, Continue with more All Boy Appliques

I loved creating the tractor appliques so much that I had to keep on going. Designing more rough and tuff vehicles including the following: 

  • Tractor
  • Bulldozer
  • Dump Truck
  • Pick Up Truck
  • Sailboat
  • Train Engine
  • Rocket / Spaceship
  • Helicopter
  • Airplane

All Boy Appliques

All Boy Applique Details and Where to Get the Patterns

The All Boy Appliques are made using worsted weight yarn and a crochet hook G. Ranging from 2-3″ the appliques are small but adjusting the hook size and/or the weight of the yarn could affect how big/small they turn out. 
 
The appliques are great for children’s hats, as shown in the photos, but could be added to any crochet piece like: blankets, sweaters, scarves and so much more.
 
All Boy Applique Crochet Patterns
 
The appliques are sold as a set so you get all 9 patterns with your order. The pattern is sold in all my shops and you can find them by clicking the links below:

Tips for Sewing on Appliques

Appliques can add so much detail to a crochet project, but only if you are able to sew them on in a professional way. The back of the crochet piece still needs to look nice from the back side. After years of crocheting and through much trial and error, I decided to share with you how I sew on my appliques.

I hope the video tutorial is helpful and allows you to elevate the quality of your crochet pieces. If you like the video and would like to see more, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel by clicking the “subscribe” button on my page HERE.

Flower Motif Blanket Pattern Release

      9 Comments on Flower Motif Blanket Pattern Release

 

A beautiful flower motif pattern that works up so lovely in so many different ways. If you know my crocheting style you know that I don’t like sewing pieces together and a lot of color changes, but this pattern really was lovely to put together. The way I designed it was to make all the center pieces, then add the second color. Lastly you crochet the final rounds and as you do this you stitch the pieces together. No daunting task of hand sewing when you finish your last motif because it is done!
Get your copy of this lovely pattern in each of my etsy shops:
Please take a minute to notice that the edges are uneven along two sides. Upon the request of one of my pattern testers I did add a “half flower” pattern so you can even out the edges if you want to (but I did not include the detailed instructions on colors). Here is a sample of both edges:
Here are some fabulous images of the pattern tests that were completed. I asked the testers to be creative and make the blanket using as many or as few colors as they wish. Which is your favorite?
This beautiful version was completed by Nondas, owner of Yarn Medley’s From the Heart.
Nondas used 3 colors and made each motif the same and the final blanket is stunning!

 

The softness of this sample is so warm and inviting, this version was completed by
Sarah from Briar Rose Boutique. Sarah choose to make all the centers the same then complete the rest of the motifs using half blue and half pink and the outcome is beautiful.
This sample is in the works and I cannot wait to see it all done! Michelle decided to keep going once she finished the blanket, she is going to make it much bigger and has decided to use the motifs and make it into a shawl. I love the solid motifs with the border done with bold contrasting colors.

 

Another sample that just makes me smile! I love the brightness of the lime green and teal and the softness of the cream. Happy Dancing Willow always does such a nice job working up a fun version!

 

And one more version made with 3 colors but has a completely different look! Tanya from MaDukes Hook Up made all the centers the same then alternated the blue and yellow. This version makes me want to throw on some denim cut offs and go lay in a field of daisies!
