Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets – Crochet Pattern Bundle

Growing up in one of the most beautiful states, Idaho, I have a deep love of the outdoors. The forests and mountains are where I feel the most relaxed and recharged. Watching wildlife is always so mesmerizing and I wanted to capture that in a handmade crochet blanket.  

A blanket is used to wrap yourself up and keep you cozy and warm, howeder, it can also be displayed across the back of a couch, on a blanket ladder or just draped across a bench. Essentially, it can be turned into a piece of art. No matter what you do with the blanket, these wildlife blankets are a masterpiece. 

Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets

The Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket Bundle is a unique set of crochet patterns. Each blanket features a bold silhouette of a animal found in the forest, the animal stands out against a contrasting background. The wildlife animal is then framed with a tich textured border to finish off your masterpiece.

Why do you call the Wildlife Blankets bundle “interchangeable”?

INTERCHANGEABLE [in-ter-cheyn-juh-buh-l]: adjective

1. capable of being put or used in the place of each other:interchangeable symbols.

2. capable of replacing or changing places with something else:an interchangeable part.

source: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/interchangeable

Each piece of the blankets can be changed out for the same pieces of another blanket. Each pattern is a stand alone pattern, but they are all made the same size so they can be interchanged.

Wildlife Animal Silhouette Information and Options

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats for you to choose from. A chart, (or graph), is included to help create the wildlife animal silhouette, in addition, at the end of each pattern the graph has been enlarged so you can print it off on 4 pages and tape together for a larger format you can follow.

There are 5 different animal silhouettes that you can pick to crochet. Each one is very distinguishable and pops with a bold contrast in colors, therefore, it may be a tough decision. Now choose from a: fish, moose, bear, wolf or deer.

Wildlife Animal Silhouettes

However, If you are not familiar with crocheting from a graph, I have also included a quick written out reference. This is a written form of the graph and is explained in detail with how many stitches in each color to work. This piece of the pattern can also be a good way to double check your work.

Choose one of the Textures Side Panels

Once you have chosen a silhouette you can then pick one of the beautiful textured side panels. These panels are used to frame out the silhouettes, because they run along each side, top and bottom of the blanket creating an astounding look!

Pick a Corner Square

The corner pieces of your blanket can be detailed or simple, however, they all can look very pleasing with any of the panels. The possibilities are endless. Which corner square is your favorite?

I hope you get excited about all the possibilities in designing your own blanket. I need to mention that all these designs (with the exception of the fish on blanket) are available in a book by Leisure Arts. If you have already purchased this book, then you will only need to add the Fish On Blanket to your collection.

Where to get the patterns for the Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets Bundle

I hope you enjoy crocheting these masterpieces and seeing them come to life. As you work all the pieces and seam them together, the result in each step, is a rewarding process. I would love to see your finished blankets, so please share them in my Crochet & Conversations group (info to join is below).

Cropped Motif Cardigan – Crochet Pattern

The Cropped Motif Cardigan is an ideal light layer to cut the chill off on spring days. Designed to be a lightweight layer the cardigan will become a staple in your closet.

Designed in a unique square motif style the cardigan is easy to make in steps or on the go. Each square features a flirty floral design that gives is a perfect look of spring and will coordinate with most attire.

Cropped Motif Cardigan

The versatility of the cardi is endless. Pair it with a lightweight long sleeve shirt, like my daughter did (above image) and it works as a vest. Wear it over a spring sleeveless dress or tank top to add a little warmth.

About the Cropped Motif Cardigan Pattern

The cropped design is seen in the capped/cropped sleeves that cover the shoulder and in the length falling mid body. If you prefer a longer cardigan, you could add an additional row of motifs, however, I have not made one. If you do, I would love to see how it turns out.

The pattern comes in adult sizes ranging from Adult Small up to XLarge.

Made in a light (#3) weight yarn and a crochet hook H (5.00 mm) and crochet hook I (5.5 mm), the Cardigan works up quicker than you might think.

St. Patrick’s Day Crochet Pattern Round

The feast of St. Patrick’s Day is nearly here and it is time to get your crochet on and whip up some lucky patterns for the occassion.

Every March 17, the United States becomes an emerald country for a day. Americans wear green clothes and quaff green beer. Green milkshakes, bagels and grits appear on menus. In a leprechaun-worthy shenanigan, Chicago even dyes its river green.

https://www.history.com/news/st-patricks-day-origins-america

However you plan to celebrate, I can guarantee that one or many of the below St. Patrick’s Day crochet pattern finds will warm up your home and get you ready for the big day.

St Patrick's Day Pattern Round Up

A few St. Patricks Day Facts According to History.com

  1. For several centuries, March 17 was a day of solemnity in Ireland with Catholics attending church in the morning and partaking of modest feasts in the afternoon.
  2. The party atmosphere (in America) only spread to Ireland after the arrival of television when the Irish could see all the fun being had across the ocean.
  3. For decades, Irish laws prohibited pubs from opening on holy days such as March 17. Until 1961, the only legal place to get a drink in the Irish capital on St. Patrick’s Day was the Royal Dublin Dog Show, which naturally attracted those with only a passing canine interest.
  4. The meal that became a St. Patrick’s Day staple across the country—corned beef and cabbage—was also an American innovation. While ham and cabbage was eaten in Ireland, corned beef proved a cheaper substitute for impoverished immigrants.

Harlequin Infant Sleeper Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Harlequin Infant Sleeper Crochet Pattern

The Harlequin Infant Sleeper is a perfect crochet project to gift when you just don’t have the time to make a blanket. A sleeper is a way to keep those babies warm, just slip it on over a onsie.

The detailed Harlequin, or stacking diamonds, pattern is a popular look for babies and in nursery decor. It adds a whimsical and charming look that will be adorned on a precious newborn. This is a must make item that will become a favorite to gift at showers.

Harlequin Infant Sleeper

The Harlequin Infant Sleeper Pattern Details

The sleeper pattern is made using a finer worsted weight or a dk weight yarn (just make sure you match gauge to have the correct finished size). In the photographed sleeper, I used Baby Wonder yarn by Herrschners, in the color, naptime.

Other supplies you will need include a crochet hook H (5.00 mm), measuring tape, scissors, tapestry needle, stitch markers and two 1″ buttons.

The completed size of the sleeper is 0-3 months old. It is designed to fit loosely and is long so it will fit children that are different lengths.

See it in Self Striping Yarn!

I was so excited to see the finished sleeper from one of my testers, Laura from Simple Stitches. She used a DK weight yarn called Ice Yarns Magic Light. I think the sleeper is gorgeous on her little Eliza, she is such a doll and the stripes look beautiful.

Collana Lace Cowl – Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Collana Lace Cowl – Crochet Pattern

With cool weather still lingering on it is nice to add a new neck warmer to your accessory pile. I am in love with the newest crochet design, the Collana Lace Cowl.

As I sat down to design a new cowl style neck warmer, I began with some beautiful shimmery yarn by Lion Brand, called, Summer Nights. When you see and feel this yarn you know it will be ideal for an elegant accessory.

Collana Lace Cowl Long Option

The Collana Lace Cowl made in the Lion Brand Summer Night yarn had to be a long design, almost worn as a necklace. In fact, the word Collana is an Italian word that means, “necklace”, according to the Cambridge Dictionary.

Collana Lace Necklace or More Cowl?

I love the softness and the slight shimmer of the Cowl, it is ideal for a cool day. However, after I made my first cowl we had a huge storm that dropped the temperatures to below freezing. I was in need of something warmer.

After looking in my stash of yarn I found a lovely skein of Cloudborn Alpaca Wool Silk Fingering yarn. Oh my, this was so warm and had a unique look to it. I knew I wanted to make another cowl with the exact same stitch but shorter so that it would be closer to the neckline.

Collana Lace Cowl Short Version

Long or Short? That is the Question.

I fell in love again with the short version. It is crazy how the same cowl pattern can be made to have two completely different looks. The stitches work up the same but with different textures the yarns make the appearance of the cowl completely different.

About the Collana Lace Cowl Pattern

The pattern comes in two sizes that will fit most people. Both styles are made using a super fine (#1) weight yarn and is crocheted using a crochet hook size H (5.00 mm) hook.

For the longer version plan on using up to 375 yards. Where as the short version only used about 300 yards of yarn. The pattern could be altered to be longer or shorter because it gives you the number of stitches to either increase or decrease by.

I love seeing how my pattern designs work up and my testers do an amazing job each and every time.

FREE Merino Thick & Thin Newborn Hat Patterns

      No Comments on FREE Merino Thick & Thin Newborn Hat Patterns

Newborn photographs are one of the most treasured keepsakes you will ever have so you must have the right props. The fresh and delicateness of newborn life is embraced with the uniqueness of Merino Thick & Thin yarn but it doesn’t take away from the focus of the newborn.

Crocheting with custom dyed yarn will not only result in a new love of yarn to crochet with, but you will also find these hats to work up quick. As you crochet you will feel the luxuriousness of the yarn in your fingers and be so excited to put it on a newborn baby.

Three Different Merino Hat Styles To Choose From

Each hat design has a different personality, but they all share the sweet look to them. The uniqueness of the thick and thin yarn creates almost a bubble like look to the fabric that is crocheted. It naturally tightens and loosens between each stitch.

The Merino Thick & Thin Hat pattern styles that I will be sharing with you include a Pixie Hat, a traditional Beanie and a Pixie Bonnet style.

Which style do you want to make? The great thing about these patterns is the minimal amount of thick & thin yarn they use. For Instance, with one 90 yard skein, I was able to make one hat of each design.


Newborn Merino Pixie Hat Pattern

You will need the following supplies:

  • about 28 yards of Merino Thick & Thin Yarn
  • Crochet Hook N (9.00 mm)

Newborn Merino Bonnet Pattern

You will need the following supplies:

  • About 35 yards of Merino Thick & Thin Yarn
  • Crochet Hook N (9.00 mm)
  • Measuring Tape, Yarn Needle, Scissors

Crochet Pattern for the Bonnet

  1. Ch 14, hdc in the 3rd chain from hook, hdc in each remaining ch, rotate work (you will now continue your hdc in the opposite side of the ch), hdc in each ch to end, turn (26 counting beginning ch now and throughout hat)

  7. Ch 2, hdc in each st across, turn (22)
  8. Ch 2, hdc in each st across, fasten off and weave in ends
  9. Continue to tassel instructions

Adding Braid / Ties & Tassels to the Bonnet

There are 2 options that I have used for the ties and/or tassels. I usually use whichever one I have enough yarn for. If you are running short of yarn, check out the top row of images in the above graphics. Those hats demonstrate the ties/braid option resulting in using less yarn because they feature a small braid and small tassels. However, in the bottom image there are longer tassels with no braid.

Ties / Braid Option: Begin to create this option by taking 2 strands of yarn and measure about 3 feet long, then fold the yarn in half. At the fold, join with a slst in the front lower corner of the bonnet. After that step, complete as many chains as possible leaving enough yarn for a small tassel (usually about 15-22 chains), tie them off and trim up the tassels to have even ends.

Tassel Only Option: To complete the longer tassels, take the remaining yarn and fold it in half, continue folding in half until you have about 4, 6 or 8 strands, just make sure it is an even number. Split them in half and then place them in 2 separate piles. Take the first pile and fold those strands in half, now, at the fold, pull through the front lower corner of the bonnet. Continue by tying tightly with a scrap piece of yarn around the folded area and then repeat on the other side with the second group of measured out strands.

Sweet Potato 3’s Home Office Display

      No Comments on Sweet Potato 3’s Home Office Display

I moved about 18 months ago and am fortunate to have a home office. Having a designated space to keep all my books, supplies, office materials, and more has been amazing. But, it wasn’t a “fun place to go”.

Office Space Boring

The office is designed with ample storage, which I would never complain about, but there is not much room to decorate. So, I had to put on my thinking cap to come up with a simple and fun way to add some fun decor that will make my time doing “book work” a little more fun.

Considerations in the decor

The workspace is great to have with a large countertop to spread out my paperwork and get organized. However, it isn’t very deep, so I needed to make sure whatever I added was not going to stick out from the wall very much.

Feeling a little clueless on what to do, I turned to Pinterest and found some fun ideas to display yarn. A yarn wall wasn’t really the look I was going for, but who couldn’t resist a nice showcase of some of your favorite yarn cakes.

Shopping for Ideas

Supplies for Office

Wooden Crates are always cute no matter what you are using them for. I found a coupe different shaped ones that would be cute to display some yarn in and I had to add the cute wooden vase. You can find similar crates and vases by clicking HERE.

My space is very long and narrow, therefore I needed something larger for one side of the display. After searching high and low I decided to create a unique crochet wall piece, so I grabbed a 11X14 photo frame that you can find by clicking HERE.

Creating The Custom Wall Art

I was in the middle of teaching a class on crocheting from a graph so I decide to create a graph with my logo in it using the program Stitch Fiddle. I was excited to crochet the graph and figure out how to add it to the frame.

Feeling excited about my custom logo, the challenge was in attaching it to the frame. It was important to have it evenly stretched across the frame. I decided wrapping yarn through each row end and around the entire frame was the way to go.

The even stretch was perfect, but the black frame showing through was NOT the look I was hoping for. After attempting to single crochet around the frame, the edge wasn’t very clean, it looked bulky and uneven. I decided to just continue with wrapping the yarn. The corners were a bit tricky so I left a little of the frame showing.

Frame Yarn Wrap for Display

Finishing Touches

With the wall art completed it was time to put it all together. Using command strips (found HERE), the crates were attached to the wall and then filled with some of my favorite yarn remnants that had been wound into little cakes using my yarn winder (found HERE).

Adding my crochet hooks in the wooden vase, they slipped all the way in! I realized it was too deep, never fear, because a touch of greenery was perfect. I happened to have a small wooden clip board that matched perfectly, which turned into an ideal way to add my family photo.

Adding my Great Grandmothers old ceramic honey pot with some greenery helped bring in another contrasting element. Then I slide my old office name plate under the crate and it filled in the empty spot perfectly.

It is a small display with little hight to work with, in between my cabinets. However, this display added a warm “crocheters” touch that was desperately needed. This small touch makes my office feel like it is just for me. I can now admit, a very small part of me gets excited about having to sit in here to do the dreaded “bookwork”.

After the craziness of the holidays I know many of us like to have a little down time. For some that is spent crocheting and for other that is a time to take a short break from crochet. No matter what category you might fall into, I am willing to bet you are ready for some new projects.

How about quick and warm projects such as: hats, scarves, wraps, shawls, mittens, and gloves. I like quick projects that I can complete and start wearing right away or have on hand to share.

Darling Animal Applique Crochet Patterns

      3 Comments on Darling Animal Applique Crochet Patterns

My popular Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Blanket is one of the cutest additions to any nursery. However, Teddy Bears may not be the theme of your decor. So have some fun and switch it up to customize the blanket with other Darling Animal Appliques.

I rounded up some of my favorite Darling Animal Appliques. These would all be ideal to add to your Sleep Tight Blanket or to any other blanket, sweater, bag, or more.


If you use any of the appliques, I do recommend you double check the sizing. Appliques can be made slightly larger or smaller by adjusting your hook up or down a size. Have fun making them and please share your projects in my interactive facebook group: Crochet & Conversations

How to Sew on Appliques

I created this tutorial on how to sew on appliques to your crochet piece. This technique makes it so you cannot see the applique or stitches on the the reverse side. This will give your project a professional look.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set

Using any of the Darling Animal Appliques would be so cute on the Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set. You can find more information about the blanket, lovey, stuffed animal, pillow and hat by clicking this LINK HERE.

Cascading Fringe Wall Hanging Tutorial & Kit

Wall Hangings with fringe are all the top trends in home decor right now and I love the simplicity of the look to the Cascading Fringe design.

I worked in collaboration with BluPrint to come up with a beginner level wall hanging. We decided on a neutral color scheme with blush tones and used basic supplies to create the look.

Cascading Fringe Wall Hanging Sample Photo

Cascading Fringe Video & Photo Tutorials

The Wall Hanging has 3 video tutorials hosted by, Vanessa Vargas Wilson. Vanessa did an amazing job showing the details in each step to create the perfect look therefore, even a beginner can easily follow along.

Supplies Needed to Create your Own Cascading Fringe Wall Hanging

Cascading Fringe Supplies Needed

To make the Cascading Fringe Wall Hanging you have a couple of options. Purchase the Kit through BluPrint and you will get everything you need including the 3 skeins of yarn, wooden dowel and the metal ring.

You can also purchase the supplies on your own or use your own scrap yarn from your stash. If you are looking for the supplies used in the sample you can see the affiliate links included below:

  • Sprightly Yarn (3 skeins – 1 of each color), click HERE
  • Wooden Dowel (this one is slightly shorter but has the end caps on it so will work just as good), click HERE
  • 10″ Metal Ring, click HERE
