Amy Pullover Free Crochet Pattern

This post contains my Amy Pullover FREE Crochet Pattern.  I designed the pullover back in November of 2018.  It took me a  while to get it just right and now I have and I get to share it with You!  I couldn’t have done it without my pattern testers.  Thank you Lindsay Silvestrini, Sally Hayes, Sherry Dickenson, Jennifer Secord and Tara Smith.

Explore the wide variety of yarns we offer: from basic to fashion, 100% acrylic to 100% wool and everything in between. We have the yarn to fit your project and style.

With the colder months already here, this would be a GREAT project to do while you are cooped up in the house.  You can binge watch Netflix or Hulu while crocheting the Amy Pullover.

As a Scoliosis Survivor I have a lot of free time on my hands.  Because I suffer with Chronic Pain I sit or recline on the couch crocheting and watching Netflix.  Since I watch a lot of TV I got the idea for the Amy Pullover from Season 7 of American Horror Story.  Weird right? lol

Ribbed Crop Top Free Crochet Pattern
Sarah Paulson

Sarah Paulson wore roomy, comfy and warm looking tops a lot in Season 7, like the image above. Yes, you may find this silly or funny, but I loved the way they look SO much so I designed a crochet pattern around her wardrobe.  The images below depict my version of her tops.  I hope you find it roomy, warm and comfy as much as I do!

JOANN Stores

Sara Paulson also reminds me of my sister, Amy.  Amy was in town while I was designing the Pullover.  She isn’t into crochet and she actually didn’t like the color of the top.  lol  My sister wears the latest fashion and I can see her in this roomy, warm, and comfy Pullover.  That is another reason I named the pullover after my sister, Amy.  I have been waiting to share this post because Amy’s birthday is in December.  I wanted to give her a gift and to let her know how much her support means to me.  Thank you and Happy Birthday Amy.

I hope you enjoy my Amy Pullover.  The Amy Pullover Free Crochet pattern has 6 sizes to choose from.  I hope you share your version of the Amy Pullover with me.  You can post your version at any of my social media sites listed below the pattern.  I’d love to hear from you, so be sure to comment here at my website.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at jo@joscraftyhook.com.

If you would like to purchase the PDF pattern you can do so from my Esty Shop here or from my Ravelry Store here.  This pattern is a long one, so if you’d like a pdf version, please stop by my Etsy Shop or Ravelry Store.

Pet Scarf Crochet Pattern

Did you think I forgot?  Were you getting worried?  Well I didn’t forget to write up a blog post and share a free crochet pattern.  lol  Today I want to share with you my version of the Pet Scarf Crochet Pattern.  I tried surfing Pinterest to find a crochet pattern for a pet scarf and I didn’t find what I was looking for, so I decided to design my own for a Craft Show that was coming up.  As you can see, by the picture below, I used a version of the Granny Square and I just tweaked by looking at the patterns I did find on Pinterest.

This post contains affiliate links.  You can make a purchase using these links that I provide where I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you.)  Purchases you make will help keep my website, Etsy Shop, and my Ravelry Store going and provide quality designs just for you!

Pet Scarf

Below you will find 3 different size crochet patterns.  This Pet Scarf is so adaptable, all you do is keep adding Rows until you get the desired length you are looking for.  The 3 different sizes are designed for cats and dogs.  If you have other pets you want to dress up, all you do is crochet more or less rows, depending on your pet’s neck.  Below you will see my cat, Maze and how good the Scarf fit her.

Top 20 card making projects! See them right now

Maze


This pet scarf crochet pattern is a good way to use up you scrap yarn you have laying around, like me.  lol  The pet scarf crochet pattern is also good for us Scoliosis Survivors and chronic pain sufferers to do.  The pattern works up so quickly and will give you a great sense of accomplishment!  It will also help with people who deal with anxiety, stress, or depression.  When your finished you not only have a cool pet scarf but your spirit will be lifted.  Crochet for me is my life line, it helps me by taking my mind off of my pain, anxiety, and depression.  So crochet this pet scarf and have a great day!

October is Cancer Awareness Month and the Wrapped in Love Headband Crochet Pattern was designed specifically for Cancer Awareness Month.  There are a number of crochet patterns in the Wrapped In Love Line (see below) that are dedicated to the women in my family who have faced one type of cancer or another and SURVIVED!  I am SO thankful to God for delivering them from this horrible disease!

As a Scoliosis Survivor, I know some of the struggles cancer patients go through.  I deal with chronic pain, anxiety, depression and more.  Cancer patients may go through these things as well.  Surviving Scoliosis is an ongoing battle, that is why I am so thankful the women in my family battled cancer and survived!

The Wrapped in Love Headband uses the same technique found in the Wrapped in Love Hat and Cowl set crochet patterns that can be found on my website here.  There are a number of Video Tutorials from my YouTube Channel here that do Row by Row with you.  If you would like to receive the FREE PDF version of this pattern all you have to do is sign up to be on my Mailing List.

You can also find the Summer of Love Tank Top crochet pattern here on my website as well.  The Summer of Love Tank Top uses the same Video Tutorials as the hat, cowl, and headband.  You can find the Video Tutorials at my YouTube channel here as well.

The Wrapped In Love Headband and Summer of Love Tank Top are just some of the crochet patterns you can find in the Wrapped In Love Line.  The Wrapped In Love Headband crochet pattern is another quick  one that those with Scoliosis or chronic pain sufferers or anyone can do because it is a ‘short and sweet’ pattern.  lol  So scroll down and let’s get started!

I designed the Ombre Waves Tank Top around this time last year, but I only offered it in 1 size.  One of my crochet pattern testers said she would LOVE to do the tank top, but I didn’t offer a Small.  I heard the same thing about sizes from others, so I decided to add 5 more sizes to the pattern.  So now YOU can take advantage of these changes as well!

Straps:

Make 4 – 2 on each side

Placing of Stitch Markers:  With (RS) facing you, fold the shirt in ½, making sure the Waves line up correctly and count over 2 Waves from the Left and 2 Waves from the Right.  Find the 3 dc group in the center of the wave and count over 1 stitch and put your stitch marker in that place. This will be where you start the strap.  

Notes:  

You will follow Placing of Stitch Markers 4 times.  2 Straps on the Front of the Tank and 2 Straps on the Back of the Tank. If the Straps are not long enough for your size, feel free to add as many Rows as you need. 

 Once you have completed attaching the Straps, using your Tapestry Needle sew the straps together using the Back Stitch or the Invisible Stitch.  

Use your Tapestry Needle to weave in loose ends and trim off.

Jo’s Crafty Hook’s Patchwork Mystery CAL Afghan

This is it, the end of the Patchwork Mystery CAL, well it’s ALMOST over!  In today’s post I will be sharing the Joining Squares and Adding a Border for the Patchwork Mystery CAL Afghan that I did.   Don’t worry because if you just joined us for the CAL or are behind, the schedule will stay up in the group and our patterns will remain FREE on our websites or blogs!  If you are just coming across our CAL, you can find our Facebook Group Patchwork Mystery CAL here!

Joining my Afghan Squares was a challenge, with SO many different techniques out there it was hard to choose from, but I find one perfect for mine!  I used a DC techniques to Join my afghan squares.  Below is a picture on my Join and a Video Tutorial to show you exactly what I did.

DC Join

DC Border around whole Afghan

Once I joined all of my Afghan Squares, I added a DC Border around the whole Afghan.  After I did this I searched and searched Pinterest until I found the perfect decorative border I was looking for.  I call it the “Lollipop” technique.  lol  The actual pattern came from My Crafts which can be found here.

I also made a Video Tutorial of my “Lollipop” Border and you can find it below which is from my YouTube Channel.

And here is my finished Patchwork Mystery CAL Afghan!  I hope you like it and are able to find the perfect Join and Border for your Patchwork Mystery CAL Afghan!  Be sure to finish your Afghan and enter it in our Contest for a chance to win prizes!  You can find more about the Contest inside our Facebook Group Patchwork Mystery CAL here!
