Cozy Slippers Crochet Pattern

A pair of handmade slippers are a welcome gift that anyone will love. All these designs are unique and there is sure to be one that speaks just to you.

Grandioso Guitar Crochet Blanket Pattern

I have always felt that music is an important part of life. The best way to appreciate music is to play an instrument. Growing up I took piano lessons for 5 years. Now as a Mom, all 3 of my children play an instrument.

When a musician learns to read, play and perform music, they gain mental, cognitive and emotional health benefits that will last throughout their lifetime.

The benefits of music amazes me, if your interested in reading more about the benefits of music, click HERE.

Guitar

Here my son is playing at his first guitar holiday recital. He was so cute and so proud of his performance. I cannot wait to see and hear many more.

Grandioso Guitar Blanket

My guitar player is my 2nd son, he loves trying new songs out and is a great musician. He is a very cheerful kiddo and so I was immediately drawn to the Red Heat Roll with It Melange (color: Paparazzi). Wanting different angles than the violin, I had the silhouette split center of the guitar by to one side of the blanket for a unique look. The blanket is reversible (all the designs are) so the guitar can be on the left or the right side.

The name Grandioso was suggested by, Chasity, as soon as I heard it I knew this had to be the official name. Grandioso is Spanish for “Great” and this just fits this blanket and the kiddo it was designed for.

Grandioso Guitar

The Grandioso Guitar Blanket is a fun, funky, unique, modern and classic blanket with a young vibe to it. However, any generation will love the classic design of the instruments and the music theme.

The blanket is made from the bottom up (this is NOT a C2C).

Music to My Soul Stitch Sample

I love the beautiful transition in the colors of the Red Heart Roll With It Melange yarn. It is a soft yarn and the color changes are natural, there won’t be any huge jumps in color or abrupt changes. It is a beautiful change in colors and specks, the yarn itself reminds me of sock yarn only because of this. The yarn is a worsted #4 weight.

Vibrato Violin Blanket

The Violin was my first design that I crocheted. My oldest son really wanted me to use purple and the Red Heart Roll with It Melange (color: Autograph) was perfect. The name of this blanket is self explained, thanks to Shanan for the suggestion:

vi·bra·to/vəˈbrädō/a rapid, slight variation in pitch in singing or playing some musical instruments, producing a stronger or richer tone.”a clean, light sound without vibrato”

Piano Recital

Here my daughter is playing at her first piano recital, she even composed her own song after only a few months of lessons. She was very nervous (if you couldn’t tell) but played so well.

Piano Pizzazz Blanket

What a fun way to describe the jazzy colors in the Piano blanket (name suggested by Angela)! My daughter is the pianist in our family and saying she is the Pizzazz in the household is an understatement-LOL.

Piano Pizzazz Blanket

The piano blanket has the keys laying along the top or the bottom edge. In my sample photos the piano keys are shown along the bottom of the blanket. However, with no adjustments the keys can lay along the top of the blanket resulting in the keys being at your hands when you pull the blanket over you!

The Piano Pizzazz Blanket is a fun, funky, unique, modern blanket with a young vibe to it. However, any generation will love the classic design of the instruments and the music theme.

The blanket is made from the bottom up (this is NOT a C2C). The piano blanket begins with the details in the keys, this can be a little tricky but is so worth the time. Just be patient and once you finish the first 30 rows, you get to sit back and enjoy a fun stitch that works up quick.

Behind the Designs of the Music Blankets

Whenever I sit down to crochet a new design I research and see what is already out there. I saw many graph piano blankets and even some C2C guitar blankets. However, I wanted something different and needed something completely new. I was in search for a fun, funky, unique, modern and young vibe.

I finally decided on the split silhouette of instruments resulting in that modern twist. Next I knew my kids wouldn’t want traditional colors, therefore the popularity of self striping yarns was a natural pick. I couldn’t be more happy with the results.

Red Heart Roll with It Melange

One of the most difficult parts of this blanket was finding a unique stitch that would work in the graph. It was important to me to work the design from the bottom up and horizontal rows. I finally found a fun, easy and quick stitch that stacks directly on top of the stitch from the prior row. This results in the best graph with nice lines.

Howling Wolf Blanket – Crochet Pattern

The Howling Wolf Blanket is a new individual pattern that coordinates with the rest of the blanket designs in the Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket ebook. All the blanket patterns feature a striking animal silhouette that is framed with a beautiful crochet texture in a frame (border) of the blanket. 

The Howling Wolf blanket was inspired by the lovely bold Native American decor that I love seeing in so many different settings. This blanket will appeal to so many different people though. It will touch everyone on a different level giving them that “warmth of home”, “weekend at the cabin” or “my native land” feel.

Howling  Wolf

The design in the blanket panels features a unique feathering look to the stitches. This is actually a very easy stitch to crochet and you will love the look and feel it creates.

Howling Wolf Side Panel

The corner pieces of the Howling Wolf blanket feature a whimsical look. Resembling a dream catcher or some have said wagon wheel, this cornerstone to your blanket will set off just the right detail to make it pop!  

Howling Wolf Corner Square

About the Pattern

I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn for the rich burnt orange color. I love working with this line of yarn. It is soft, works up nicely, makes your stitches stand out and washes up well. For the white background color it is essential that you either use the same brand and weight of yarn, or use a yarn that has the same WIP (wraps per inch). I used Caron Simply Soft for the background resulting in 2 different yarns that worked well together.  

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats in the pattern for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is used to crochet the bear silhouette. At the end of the pattern, there is an included enlarged graph, simply print off all 4 pages and tape them together.

howling wolf

If you are unfamiliar with crocheting from a graph then your in luck. A supplement has been added to the pattern to assist you along the way. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in a little more detail. Essentially, it states how many stitches to complete in each color. This supplement can also be used as a way to double check the accuracy of your work.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Winter Wishes Scarf is one of my favorite cozy scarves I have designed. It crochet design shows off one of my favorite thing… lots and lots of texture!

I made the scarf in a classic grey and it shows off the stitches and design so well. An easy button helps the scarf stay in place as it warms your neck on those brisk days. The optional fringe keeps the classic look of a winter accessory. You can dress up the Winter Wishes Scarf or keep it simple by switching up the button from a wooden to a sparkly gem filled button (see samples of this further in the post).

Fish On Blanket – Crochet Pattern

Releasing a new pattern is always a nervous moment because I question whether others will love it as much as I do. As I release the Fish On Blanket today, I am pretty confident this one will be loved by many. I poured so much energy and love into this design that I made for my hubby. 

The Fish On Blanket was designed as a new matching afghan to the entire Wildlife Cables Afghan Book. The striking silhouettes of the animals with an intricate border make designs appeal to many. Anyone who love the great outdoors and wants that “warmth of home” or a “weekend at the cabin” feel will think this blanket is a show stopper.

Fish On Blanket Crochet Pattern

The design of the blanket features a detailed and intricate frame that has twisting cables and an eye catching pattern. Likewise, the corner piece has a touch of whimsical charm. It is designed in a circle pattern that features a little more elegant look of maybe a wildflower. Well, that is kind of what I think of as I sit streamside watching my husband fish.

About the Pattern

I used Premier Yarn in Christmas Green and White for the Fish On Blanket. I really liked working in this yarn, it gave the blanket a little more of a plush feel than the other wildlife blankets. The bright, but not too bright, color of the Christmas Green was just what I was hoping for and it paired perfectly with the stark white contrast of the silhouette background. 

Fish On Blanket pattern by Sweet Potato 3

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is included to help create the fish silhouette. At the end of the 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.

However, If you are not familiar with crocheting from a graph, a supplement has been added to the pattern. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in detail, but essentially, it states how many stitches in each color to work. This piece of the pattern can also be a good way to double check your work.
