Mother’s Day Pretty in Pink Crochet Pattern Round Up

Mom’s are the best, they give so much of themselves for their children. They pray for, teach, guide, love and cherish their children all their lives. Growing up, I always felt blessed to have such an amazing mom and today, being a mom to 3 children, I strive to be like my Mom. Here is my Mom on Mother’s Day, I believe in 1984 (I am the one of the right).

Mother's Day 1984

Mother’s day is wonderful day where we get to tell our Moms, or the Mother figures in our lives, how much we appreciate them and all they do for us.

Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.”

History.com

Traditionally, we present our Mother’s with gifts. As young children we always made something handmade. Whether it was a hand painted card, a paper plate crown with glitter or a bright and awkward big beaded necklace that they had to wear and show off (oh, the memories).

Bring Back Handmade for Mother’s Day

This year, you can bring back the “handmade” part of the Mother’s Day gift. Let us all shower our Mother’s with one of these beautiful crochet patterns. Each one is unique, is a fairly quick project and can be customized to fit your Mother’s personality perfectly.

Summer Daze Wrap: Crochet Patterns

Some Days you just need an extra layer for just a little extra warmth. Well, the Summer Daze Wrap is one of those key pieces you need in your wardrobe. It adds a touch of warmth, but not too much, sounds like that could be the best accessory this year!

Summer Daze Wrap

I designed this Wrap a few years ago, but it just never felt like it was complete or quite fit my style. I had a skein of Lion Brand Mandala sitting around and I was trying to decide what to make with it. My daughter had been begging me for a lightweight poncho style wrap. This is when it dawned on me to re-make my Summer Daze Wrap in her size!

I instantly knew that it was going to be fabulous with the natural color changes of the Mandala yarn. The light weight (#3) yarn allows the wrap to have a nice drape to it. It is crocheted with easy and basic stitches but has a very intricate look to it.

The pattern comes is so many size you can make them for nearly anyone.

  • Children’s Sizes: 2-4 years old / 5-7 years old / 8-10 years old / 11-12 years old
  • Adult Sizes: Small / Medium / Large / X-Large

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.

Whispering Willows Poncho – Crochet Pattern

The Whispering Willows Poncho is a beautiful summer wrap. Made in the right colors this poncho can dress up any evening attire with it’s elegant look. It can be a cute swim top cover, with a cute pair of shorts, because of it’s free flowing design. And, it can add a fun whimsical look to a simple jeans and t-shirt day!

The stitch combination in the Whispering Willows Poncho creates a lovely texture and natural lay of the accessory allowing a slight breeze to go through, but there is still enough close stitches to keep you warm.

About the Whispering Willows Poncho Pattern

The pattern comes in only 2 sizes because ponchos have a forgiving fit and will fit a range of sizes. The pattern has a small/medium size as well as a large/XLarge size. You can easily add additional rows to make the poncho longer to cover more of the arm and/or to add length to the design.

Made in a lighter worsted weight yarn and a crochet hook I (5.5 mm), the Whispering Willows Poncho works up quicker than you might think.

Cross My Heart Triangle Shawl Crochet Pattern

I am so excited to release the Cross My Heart Triangle Shawl.

The Entire Collection has been so popular with so many lovely comments on the pretty stitches. But, the triangle shawl shows off the stitches best because of the alternating colors. The detail really makes the punch I was hoping for.

The Cross My Heart Triangle Shawl is a classic shawl design made in a triangular shape that easily wraps around to create a beautiful warm wrap. I choose a classic grey but wanted to add a soft touch with the light yellow used to crochet the Cross My Heart Stitch.

Imagine all the different colors you can use, the combinations will change the entire look of this scarf, and there are unlimited possibilities! For a little less “pop” you can make the scarf in a solid or ombre yarn. The Triangle Shawl is sure to become a go to piece in your closet. 

About the Pattern

The Cross My Heart Triangle Shawl is made in a One Size Fits Most size. However, if you want a larger shawl just continue adding rows until the desired size is achieved.

Where to get your Cross My Heart Shawl Pattern

You can get a copy of the shawl on Ravelry: HERE

Do you love the Cross My Heart Stitch?

The Triangle Shawl can also be found in an ebook that is a Collection of multiple Cross My Heart Designs that includes a: scarf, headband, hat, fingerless gloves, vest and now the triangle shawl.

Cozy Shawls & Scarves – Crochet Patterns

Are you going to keep warm on these cooler days of fall? They will be here before we know it and wearing a shawl or scarf is a fun way to add some fun pieces to your wardrobe. One of the more popular, fun and versatile pieces to add is shawls and scarves.

I am beyond excited to share my latest project, with Leisure Arts, and show you the Cozy Shawls and Scarves book that includes 7 different patterns.

Sweet Potato 3

I strived to give you 7 different designs that are all different in style, look, texture and design. By using a variety of yarn brands, weights of yarn, and combining colors that compliment each design, I hope you love each one as much as I do.

The colors I decided on in the Cozy Shawls & Scarves book where inspired by nature. I feel closest to the beauty of the great outdoors in the Sawtooth Mountains that I visit multiple times every year with family and friends. Therefore, each design included in the book, is named after one of the mountain lakes in the Sawtooth Mountains.

I hope you enjoy seeing the details of each design included in the Cozy Shawls & Scarves book.
