Lovely Ladders Cowl – Crochet Pattern

If you see me wearing it, you know I love it! When I designed the Lovely Ladders Cowl crochet pattern I fell in love with the drape and the warmth so much I wore it in our family photos.

Naugle Family

The cowl is made using one of my favorite yarns, Lion Brand Jeans which is a very soft yarn but also buoyant which means it is ever so cozy and warm. I made my cowl an infinity cowl so I can wrap it twice around my neck for that extra warm feeling. However, you can make yours a single wrap for a lighter look and feel.

Lovely Ladder Cowl Crochet Pattern


The stitches used in the cowl allow a lovely drape and ease especially with the “double ladders” that are created as you crochet. These ladders is what gives this cowl a little extra texture when it wraps around your neck and helps it lay so lovely.

Lovely Ladders Cowl Test Samples

I love making new designs, but when I send the pattern to my amazing testers and they get to work up the pattern and then I get to see their photos, that is when I really fall in love with the designs. Check out how gorgeous theirs turned out.

Michelle Wulf Lovely Ladders Cowl

Sample Made by tester Michelle, she made her Lovely Ladders cowl using Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek. I love how her cowl seems a little more bulky and warm. Plus the amazing red looks fabulous on her and she looks ready for the holidays!

Tester Vicki whipped up her Lovely Ladders cowl in a neutral cream color. If you know me, I am a sucker for colors that go with everything. In this sample you can really see how lovely the texture is in the stitches around the “ladders”. Well done Vicki!

Pattern Tester Jillian used Lion Brand Ferris Wheel. I am usually not a fan of variegated yarns like this but with the Lovely Ladders design you don’t lose anything with the color changing. I actual LOVE it made in the Ferris Wheel!

Tester Heather used Red Heart with Love in the color Pewter. You guessed it, I am adore this look and color. This yarn is a little heavier than I used but it gives the cowl a very warm and cozy look. I also love how she left the cowl long, it would be more like wearing a blanket to keep you warm from the chill of winter.

Hidden Pocket Cowl – Crochet Pattern

What is Hidden in this design?

It is a lovely cowl that will keep you warm, but wait there is so much more! A pocket is hidden in the cowl!

That is right, just reach inside and warm those chilly fingers. I love how this cowl works double duty, but it is just plain fun! These Hidden Pocket Cowls will be a huge hit this winter for anyone of any age! One of my testers husband requested one and now she has made 4 more for her neighbors!

The Hidden Pocket Scarf

The idea of hiding a pocket in a cowl came to me because of all the popularity in the pocket scarves right now. I love the idea of the pocket, but prefer wearing cowls. This was a simple way to meld the two together into a fun and stylish wearable.

For my first Hidden Pocket Cowl I wanted a basic stitch that didn’t take away from the unique design. The stitch works up quick and you will love it. I do have a couple more hidden pocket designs with some fun stitches that will be released soon. Until then check out these lovely ones made by some of my testers.

Hidden Pocket Cowl Test Samples

Sample Made by tester Tanya, she loved this design so much she made a second one by a special request from her husband.

Tester Erin, from Pink Crochet, customized her pocket to feature Santa’s Belt! Isn’t that the cutest idea!

Pattern Tester Debbie did a great job showing how to wear the Hidden Pocket Cowl.

Tester Nicolee, had her co-worker model her finished Hidden Pocket Cowl. They both loved it, I love how cute she looks wearing it even while at work.

Nicolee’s sample was made using Premier Yarn Everyday Worsted.

Materials Needed for Hidden Pocket Cowl

  • Crochet Hook L (8.00 mm)
  • Crochet Hook J (6.00 mm)
  • Worsted Weight Yarn (#4) – 550-600 yards

Winter Tracks Scarf / Cowl – Crochet Pattern

A favorite accessory in todays winter closets is a warm and cozy scarf or cowl. They come in all sorts of designs, colors, textures and styles. I have designed many but there is something about the Winter Tracks Scarf/Cowl that makes it my favorite this year.

Winter Tracks Scarf

The Winter Tracks Scarf

I fell in love with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn awhile ago and had this skein in my stash for awhile. I knew I wanted a warm scarf or cowl but I just wasn’t feeling a good design until I stumbled upon this gorgeous stitch one day. It is funny how things happen, I was trying out a stitch and didn’t like it so I switched it up all of a sudden I was drooling over the look and knew right then and there what I was going to make!

It is funny how crocheters seem to like the look of knit but cannot switch to the craft and stick with their hook and continue to crochet. Well, that sums up my attempts to knit, but yes, I love this stitch because it reminds me of a knit look.

I loved the stitch but couldn’t decide between a cowl or a scarf. So, I added buttons and made it so you can wear it either way.

Materials Needed for Winter Tracks Scarf

  • 312 yards Bulky (#5) Weight Yarn – be sure to see note:
  • Sample made with 1 Skein Lion Brand Scarfie yarn / color: Cranberry Black
  • Note about yarn: Scarfie yarn is a lighter bulky yarn, so please check your gauge, a true bulky yarn will be thicker, use more yardage and will have a chunkier look and size.
  • Crochet Hook K (6.50 mm)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Measuring Tape
  • 5 Buttons 1”

A pattern testers finished scarf

One of my pattern testers, Jillian, did an outstanding job on her Winter Tracks Scarf. It shows the perfect color changes in the scarfie yarn and the look of the tracks in the stitches so well.

Another gorgeous sample was made by Heather, she made her Winter Tracks in Lion Brand Scarfie yarn in the color, “Teal & White”. I love the bold color with the white contrast, it really reminds me of those cool winter days.

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.

Snow Drifter Cowl Crochet Pattern

Warm, Soft and Inviting is what we need during this time of year and a cowl can do just the trick! The Snow Drifter Cowl is my latest design and I know you are going to fall in love with it.

The rich texture and warmth in the stitches makes this design luxurious at the highest level. The V Puff stitches are the perfect thickness and really show off the natural stripes of the yarn.

Snow Drifter Cowl Crochet Pattern

Isn’t this cowl striking. I could seriously wear this each and every day, it is warm and plush.

Snow Drifter Cowl is all about the Yarn!

I have been so fortunate to work with BluPrint on different crochet projects. So, when they sent me a couple skeins of Sprightly Acrylic Self Striping yarn that they were going to release this season I was beyond excited to create a pattern with it.

I played around with a few different stitches, and having multiple projects in my mind, I had to dream about it for a few days. But, it didn’t take long for me to decide on the perfect design.

The stitches in the Snow Drifter Cowl showed off the Self Striping yarn perfectly. Check out all the amazing color ways The Sprightly Acrylic S comes in (aff) by clicking HERE.

When I received my skeins I was obviously in love with them because they were so soft and plush yarn. As I was looking at the specs I noticed it has some wool in it. The wool makes the yarn very warm, and even though it has wool in it, there is no itchy feel or scratchiness to it at all.

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

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.

3-in-1 Summer Wrap Crochet Pattern

  • Post author:
  • Reading time:3 mins read

Spring has sprung and it won’t be long until summer is in full swing! I love this time of year and the newness of crochet projects. Our mind shifts from warm cowl, scarves, hats and blankets to fun wraps for around the pool, home accessories and small projects. So, this is the perfect time to share my latest 3 in 1 Summer Wrap crochet pattern.

The 3 in 1 wrap is ideal to toss into your bag for everyday use. If a slight chill comes into the air you can easily grab this wrap and drape it across your shoulders for just enough of a layer to warm you a bit. The open stitches allow for a breeze to get through – and also make the wrap a quick project which we all kind of like.

Are you headed to the store in your leggings and just need a little cover up? Once again, this is the wrap for you! A quick knot around your hips and it provides a little coverage and a very sporty look. You’ll feel more confident as you run in and out of shops.

Class up an old skirt to give your outfit a little boost. This was my daughters favorite way to wear the wrap. It provided the fun colors that she loves to wear and the softness was just an added bonus. Or better yet, wear it tied around your waist as you sport your new summer swimwear at the pool or beach.

About the 3 in 1 Wrap

The wrap is made with Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn which creates these fantastic summer colorways. The yarn naturally changes from one color to the next so no need to be changing yarn colors. The yarn has a very soft feel to it, so having it next to your skin is no problem at all.

About the pattern

The pattern comes in a child/youth size and an adult size. Materials Needed to completed the pattern are as follows:

  • Hook size J (6mm)
  • Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable (Worsted Weight Yarn)   
  •             Sample is made in color “Candied”
  •             Child Sizes – used about 280 yards (full skein)
  •             Ladies Size – uses about 530 yards (almost 2 full skeins)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn Needle

Cable Bucket Wrap Free Crochet Pattern

  • Post author:
  • Reading time:10 mins read

Newborn photos are a family keepsake. Photographers who specialize in capturing this precious time in a newborns life are beyond talented. They rely on trending photo props and soft textures are so appealing and trendy right now. My latest crochet pattern, the cabled bucket wrap, has all those features.

The bucket wrap is designed to simply tie around a bucket. No need for the photographer to search high and low for the perfect side of bucket to nestle the baby in. Instead wrap it around your favorite one for a whole new look.

Cable Bucket Wrap

Making the Cable Bucket Wrap

The luxurious cables intertwine using a super bulky yarn, so it works up quick and creates the rich texture in no time at all. The wrap is made as a flat wrap that ties around the bucket allowing flexibility in used. The bucket in the image shown above is about 9″ tall and 11″ across the top opening.

Materials needed to make the Cable Bucket Wrap:

  • Crochet Hook size P (10 mm)
  • Super Bulky Weight Yarn ~ about 185 yards  / Sample was made using Lion Brand in Houston Cream
  • Scissors
  • X-Large Yarn Needle or smaller crochet hook to weave in ends

Stitches & Abbreviations Used in the Pattern

  • Ch = Chain
  • Hdc = Half Double Crochet
  • Dc = Double Crochet
  • Tc = Treble Crochet
  • FP = Front Post
  • BP = Back Post
Cable Bucket Wrap

Size Gauge:

  • Please check gauge for appropriate sizing, change hook to correct size to obtain gauge.
  • With Hook P: 5 rows with 8 hdc = 4 ½” wide X 4” tall

Finished Cable Bucket Wrap Size:

Bucket Wrap will be 9” tall and 33” long (made to fit a 9” tall X 11” across bucket)

Pattern Notes:

  • The wrap is made to fit most buckets. It’s tie in the back allows it to fit buckets that may vary slightly in size or be larger on the top or bottom.
  • The beginning chain always counts as a stitch.
  • Due to the nature of crocheting cables, each stitch needs to be a different length to result in an even row. Rows will have a combination of dc & tc stitches.

The Cable Bucket Wrap PATTERN

The pattern for the Cable Bucket Wrap is below. I looks long, but I broke it down in step by step bullet points. Be patient, it is easier than it looks.

Cable Bucket Wrap Flat Lay

Repeat Rows to finish the cable bucket wrap:

the sections below will be repeats of the above rows.

  • Row 22-36: repeat Row 2 – 16
  • Row 37: Ch 2, hdc in each st across, fasten off.
  • The bucket wrap is simply tied around a bucket. I attached 2 ties on each end of the wrap.
  • Joining with a slst around 2 stitches will leave a more stable base for the ties. Slst around the 5th & 6th st from the top of row 36, ch 20 and fasten off.
  • Join with a slst around the 5th & 6th st from the bottom of row 36, ch 20 and fasten off.
  • Repeat the steps above joining with a slst around the 5th & 6th st from the top (and then the bottom) of row 2, ch 20 and fasten off.

Mohair elevates your newborn photographs to a whole new level. The latest design from my shop, Sweet Potato 3 is easily my favorite design this year. The Mohair Bonnet & Wrap set can be used in so many different ways, you are going to want one in all the colors.
 
 
The Mohair Bonnet & Wrap crochet pattern now includes multiple sizes for the bonnet including:
  • newborn
  • 3-6 month
  • 6-12 month.
 
 
The Mohair Bonnet & Wrap are stunning together and you can grab the pattern for both through the following links:
 
 
Of course you would be able to tell how beautiful this set is without the talent of Christy Mitchell Photography. She is an amazing photographer to work with from Wallingford, Connecticut. Christy is the inspiration behind many of my designs and always goes above and beyond with her images. Just take a peak at her work in the images below of the mohair set.
