I chose testicular cancer because my son has it.  He has been fighting it since January 2010.  He is back to receiving treatment after being in remission for a couple of years.  So, for me this hits very close to home.  
I also lost a grandpa to lung cancer, a grandpa to brain cancer, a grandma to breast cancer, and an Uncle to bone cancer.  Cancer is all around us, not one of us has not had it personally touch our lives.  Even I have had my own battle with cervical cancer, and later pre-cancerous cells in my uterus, ovaries, and cervix that resulted in a radical hysterectomy…but no other treatment, thankfully.

Emerald Stone Crochet Hat Pattern

      16 Comments on Emerald Stone Crochet Hat Pattern

We are entering into the month of October and that means so much to me. October is Cancer Awareness Month. Many of us have unfortunately been touched by this horrible issue in our lives. Unfortunately, I lost a wonderful and amazing uncle 6 years ago to cancer. The Emerald Stone Hat was designed in honor of my uncle.

Emerald Liver Cancer Awareness

This year I wanted to focus on Liver Cancer in my hat design, the color of the awareness ribbon for liver cancer is, emerald. I find the emerald color beautiful. It is deep, rich in color and striking to look at. The meaning behind the emerald brings the color more meaning as well.

The emerald psychological benefits: brings courage to face difficult trials, eases feelings of worry, enhances the benefits of reuniting with loved ones.

https://www.karmaweather.com/astrology-gemstones-crystals
Emerald of Hope

Explaining it a little further:

Called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love.

www.crystalvaults.com

Emerald Stone Hat

The Emerald Stone Hat, was made in a beautiful “emerald” color. While I was working up the stitches I kept thinking the design was looking like stones in a river bed. I find rivers to be peaceful and soothing to the soul. Emerald Stone Hat was easy to name due to the look and meaning behind the Emerald Stone and the connection to Liver Cancer and honoring my uncle.

Emerald STone Hat

The Emerald Stone crochet hat pattern comes in 3 sizes: child (3-12 years old), youth/womens, and adult/mens. Easily customize the hat with an oversized button or attach a pom to the top for a more youthful look.

Crochet from a Graph: learn today

      2 Comments on Crochet from a Graph: learn today

I am hosting a LIVE session in my Crochet & Conversations group about how to crochet from a chart! That’s right. I have received so many requests regarding this topic. I finally decided it was time to sit down and do some show & tell.

Where can I watch the LIVE video?

The Facebook LIVE will be hosted in my Crochet & Conversations group on Facebook. This is a fun and interactive group of fellow crocheters. We chat about, post about, and see everything about crochet. We support one another and cheer one another on as we learn new things. That is why this session will be hosting in this supportive group. You can join now by clicking HERE.

pattern group

What do I need?

The LIVE session will be visual based. But, you are welcome to work along with me as I show the details. I will be working slow so you can see each step of the way. If this is your very first time trying to crochet from a chart it may be helpful to just watch and then watch the replay and work along side me.

All you will need to work along with me is some small amounts of yarn. A smaller crochet hook, I will probably be using a Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm) and a crochet graph to work off of. I have created a small graph that goes with the upcoming holiday to practice with. Click this link to download and print an easy crochet Jack-O-Lantern graph to try out.


Let me know how it goes

I would love to hear how your progress is going with this new skill set. There are so many amazing patterns that are worked using charts. Knowing how to crochet from a graph will allow you to crochet from so many more patterns, you will be very thankful once you have it mastered.

Want to Try a Bigger Project?

One of my best selling patterns uses this crocheting from a graph method. It also will use the same stitches that I showed in my LIVE tutorial so you can see how I worked it up. Check out my Deerly Beloved Blanket by clicking this LINK.

Knot Your Average Bag – Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Knot Your Average Bag – Crochet Pattern

Using the traditional Japanese Style Bag to design the latest crochet pattern from Sweet Potato 3, I am excited to share with you the, “Knot Your Average Bag”. A fun and unique style combined with some super fun stitches that look like bows or diamonds or just a whimsical design.

Knot Crochet Bag Pattern

Knot Your Average Bag designed Just for YOU

The style of this handbag design was a special request. A member in the Crochet & Conversations FB group (Join HERE) requested a traditional Knot Bag. When she suggested this knot style bag I knew it had to be designed and it had to be fun. My hope is that that this crochet pattern inspires you to “make one just for yourself”! Many crocheters never crochet anything for themselves, but this project was designed just for you <3

Where did you find that Yarn?

Made in a worsted weight yarn the Knot Your Average Bag works up with about 400 yards of your favorite yarn. Finding a yarn that is ideal for a crochet bag can be a challenge. I was lucky enough to have a few hanks of Cloudborn Superwash Merino Worsted yarn sent to me and I knew it was going to be perfect for the Knot Your Average Bag pattern.

Shop the entire line, all 34 colors, of Cloudborn Superwash Merino Worsted yarn to find your perfect color (affiliate link): HERE

What makes the Design Unique

Featuring two straps of varying lengths is the key to the Knot Your Average Bag design. Simply pull the longer strap through the short strap and it naturally closes and opens with ease. A short strap acts as the closure. While the longer strap is the handle. You can easily customize this for your ideal bag. Leave the handle short to use as a wristlet. A medium length is great for a traditional handbag as shown in the modeled photos. Crochet the strap extra long for a cross body bag. The options are endless.

2019 Crochet Cancer Challenge

      42 Comments on 2019 Crochet Cancer Challenge

Mark Your Calendars! Grab Your STASH!

The 2019 Cancer Challenge is almost here….

October is Cancer Awareness Month. The 2019 Crochet Cancer Challenge will be the 6th annual event and trust me, this is gearing up for the best year ever!  

Crochet Cancer Challenge

Each year the challenge is essentially the same with some small changes. The goal is the same:

We (all the designers participating) are calling all crocheters out there to pledge to crochet as many hats as possible. Crochet the hats from our newly released patterns that we are offering for free in exchange for your donation of that hat to a cancer patient or cancer center near you. This will reach so many corners around the world and will touch so many people during a very challenging time in their lives.

Sound Fun and Want More Details? 

Many / Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way. It is difficult to see someone go through cancer and/or chemotherapy. But with a community standing beside them makes the battle slightly less daunting.   In honor of my Uncle Jeff, who lost his battle in September of 2014, I am hosting the 6th annual Cancer Challenge.  

Crochet Cancer Challenge

How does the Crochet Cancer Challenge work?

It is pretty simple and straight forward. I am asking all of you crocheters out there, to help make hats for cancer patients and cancer survivors. The hats can be made for someone you know, someone your friends know, a co-worker, teacher, neighbor, or even a complete stranger. You can make as many hats as you can and donate them to your local cancer center. If a cancer center is not in your area you can contact me and and I can help you find a place or organization to send them to.

How long does the crochet cancer challenge last?

Crochet Cancer Challenge Month Calandar

The challenge will begin October 1 and run through October 31. Each day of the month there will be a featured designer who will offer a FREE hat pattern in exchange for your pledge to make a hat to donate. That is 31 Free Hat Patterns as long as you promise to Donate 31 Hats. To keep everyone on track I am asking that all pledges be fulfilled by the end of 2019.

Stay tuned!

Sign up to follow by email (sign up below), this way you won’t miss any posts, updates, or patterns during the Challenge. More information will be posted over the next couple weeks. I will be highlighting the following topics and will add links as a reference once they have been posted:

Mountain Peaks Mitts – crochet pattern

      No Comments on Mountain Peaks Mitts – crochet pattern

I love seeing beautiful Mountain Peaks silhouetting against a stunning sky. It is so majestic and brings a sense of peace to me.

That beauty is what inspired me to design the Mountain Peaks Crochet Mitts. Sitting at the base of a majestic mountain with a chill in the air and some warm mitts on keeping me nice and toasty.

I was so excited to create these mitts in a super soft Cloudborn Superwash Merino DK yarn. The yarn is a perfect weight for mitts, they are not bulky at all and are a comfortable fit. The Mountain Peaks Mitt pattern comes with 3 adult sizes, so you can make a pair that will fit perfect.

Deep Waters Prayer Shawl CAL

      3 Comments on Deep Waters Prayer Shawl CAL

During the month of September, I will be hosting a Crochet Along. The Crochet Along will feature a Prayer Shawl with beautiful textures and natural color changes.

The design of the prayer shawl is to be appealing to the eye. It has a subtle pattern change within the color changes. The stitches create a top that gives you the warmth your body needs. While the lower portion of the shawl is an open, flowy stitch that provides a beautiful drape and open look. I just love the design and hope you do to.

What is a Prayer Shawl?

You may be asking yourself, What is a Prayer Shawl. I found this beautiful description from the Lion Brand website:

Prayer shawl. Peace shawl. Comfort shawl. Mantle. Whatever name you give them, they serve the same purpose. These are a wearable hug crafted with love and intent from maker to recipient. Whether it be personal words, verse, song, prayer, mantra, or something else, it is these thoughts imbued in the shawl with each stitch that make them what they are.

Lion Brand Website ( http://www.lionbrand.com/blog/what-is-a-prayer-shawl/ )

I couldn’t have explained it better myself. It’s a “Wearable Hug” that has been crocheted, with thoughts and prayers, of the recipient through the entire process of making the shawl. For this design, that process will include a crochet along format.

What is a Crochet Along?

A crochet along, also known as a CAL, is a group of people who work on making the same project together at the same pace. The wonderful part about online, is that we can do this with a larger group of people who enjoy our same craft of crochet. We have the ability to show our progress with one another and cheer each other on, all while being in the comfort of our own homes.

Deep Waters Prayer Shawl CAL Schedule

Crochet Cute Critters Amigurumi Review & Giveaway

I recently had the opportunity to review Repeat Crafters amazing new book, “Crochet Cute Critters: 26 Easy Amigurumi Patterns“. The book is set to release on August 20th, but you can pre-order it now. Upon reviewing the book, my first thought was, “these designs are all so dang cute!”

Cute Critters Crochet Book

But then, I opened the book and began to thumb through the first pages. Sarah went above and beyond and included written and photo tutorials for every step of crocheting amigurumi.

She included the basics like types of hooks, yarn recommendations, how to begin with a magic circle (which those that know me, know this is always a struggle for me). She shows how to sew the different pieces together, how to add eyes, and so much more.

The book really has a great explanation for beginners as well as those that are experienced making amigurumi.

The Crochet Cute Critters

After the first 23 detailed pages of instructions, the cuteness really begins. Sarah features 26 animals that correspond to the 26 letters of the alphabet: Alex the Alligator, Benny the Bear, Callie the Cat, and so on. All the animal designs are a little different fun have a fun personality with their design. Some of my favorites are: Alex the Alligator, Xavier the Xray Fish, and Yoland the Yak.

Again, you can pre-order the book on Amazon, HERE. The Crochet Cute Critters: 26 Easy Amigurumi Patterns, will be released on August 20, 2019. Or read below on the change to win your copy!

Teachers Take Note – Crochet Gift Set

Teacher Appreciation Week is fast approaching! This year it is May 6-10, 2019. We all know how wonderful and amazing those folks that teach, inspire and love our children all day long are. So we like to devote an entire week to show them how much we appreciate them. Now, the dreaded question, what do I get them?

Teachers Take Note Snap Pouches Gift Set

I designed this fun and unique set just for teachers, but could also be given to writers, librarians, or anyone who enjoys writing. The Snap Pouch is a fun way to create a small carrying case. The top of each pouch simple “snaps” shut! The set includes a snap pouch that looks like a notebook paper, another snap pouch that looks like a pencil and then it is topped off with a cute apple cozy.

I love to include new techniques and stitches in my patterns and of course I created a couple easy to follow YouTube tutorials to go along with the pattern. This set will even introduce you to the fun technique of Tunisian crochet (yes there is a video to show you just how to do it), no special hook is needed though for this pattern.

Where to get the pattern

Supplies Needed

I used scrap yarn for most of the Teachers Take Note Set. Any worsted weight yarn will work, I did use Red Heart Super Saver from my stash. All the specific colors are listed within the pattern. Other supplies needed are as follows:

  • Crochet Hook H (5.00) mm & Crochet Hook G (4.00 mm)
  • An old tape measure that is at least 3/4″ wide
  • Tin Snips (or old scissors that you don’t mind ruining)
  • Tape (electrical, duct or packaging)
  • Yarn Needle and Regular Yarn Scissors

Sweet Serendipity Blanket – Crochet Pattern

Sweet Serendipity… what do you do when a box of this amazingly soft and scrumptious yarn (Sprightly Spectrum) arrives on your doorstep?

First off a Happy Dance!!! LOL-I am not kidding. Then, just sit and admire the colors and dream of crocheting with it. I typically am not a fan of self striping yarns, but the Sprightly Spectrum yarns colors fade into one another in a very eye-appealing way. The transition is soft and lovely. See their entire colorway of the Sprightly Spectrum yarn, HERE.

Because the yarn is self striping I knew I needed to finds some fun stitches to make the blanket fun to work up. I wanted it to be a little airy, have a little texture and a new stitch that will allow me to hopefully teach you all something new. Bam, the Sweet Serendipity Blanket was created <3

How to get the Pattern

When I look at the striping blanket, it brings a peaceful feeling with the warm colors that remind me of spring blossoms. The Sweet Serendipity Blanket is perfect for those cool spring/summer nights.

The pattern for the Sweet Serendipity Blanket comes in two different throw sizes:

  • 38” X 52”
  • 50” X 60”

The pattern also includes photo tutorials and a video tutorial for one of the stitches. I hope you learn something new as you crochet the new pattern. You can purchase the pattern on the following sites:

Purchase a KIT

The Sweet Serendipity Blanket is also available in a Kit through BluPrint. You will receive the pattern along with the yarn to make the blanket. The colorways of the Sprightly Spectrum yarn is lovely and I am sure you will find one that you love. The Photos are done in the Plum Crazy color but I also have a sample of the blanket made up in the Raindance color:
