Nellie Poncho

Today I am SO excited to be sharing with you the Nellie Poncho Free Crochet Pattern!  I designed the Nellie Poncho in the Spring of 2020 after learning a new stitch while testing for another crochet designer.  The Nellie Poncho uses the N Stitch, once you get the hang of it I promise you will LOVE it too!

The Nellie Poncho Free Crochet Pattern has 5 sizes to choose from, so I am sure you can crochet this for yourself or any woman/teen in your life!  Also in this crochet pattern you will find picture and video tutorials on how to crochet the N Stitch and on how to sew your 2 panels together.

This Nellie Poncho can be warn in any season no matter where you are in the world.  It is perfect for those chilly Spring days, those chilly Summer evenings, in the crispy Fall air, and of course in those cold Winter seasons.

  4. You can use your crochet hook to pull the loops through the edges of the Poncho and then thread the fringe through the loop.  Pull tight to create your knot.  Make sure to pull the loop in the same direction.  This helps all of your knots to match.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Attaching the Pockets

With the right side of your shawl facing you and the right side of your pockets facing you, center each pocket near the bottom of your shawl’s short sides.  

I used a Diamond as a reference and center over 1 Diamond with the Diamond rows centered in the Pocket.  If your Shawl is too big, center your pocket over your middle rows.

Sew the pockets onto your shawl using the whipstitch or whichever stitch you prefer to sew on pockets.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Pocket Full of Diamonds Shawl

Fringe

Optional

Step 1:  For each space you are going to place your fringe, cut three 14” pieces of yarn.  I place mine 2” apart.  

Step 2:  With the right side of your shawl facing you, line up the short end in front of you on a flat surface.  

Step 3:  Fold 3 pieces of yarn in half and line up their ends. Use your hook to pull their center down into a space at the very bottom of your shawl’s short side.

 

Step 4:  With the pieces still on your hook, loop all the ends over your hook, and pull them through.  

Repeat Steps 1-4 on both short ends of your shawl.

Trim your fringe so tassels are even across the bottom of your shawl.

That’s it!

Preemie Crochet Challenge 2020

Jo’s Crafty Hook is taking part of The Preemie Crochet Challenge.  The Preemie Crochet Challenge runs the whole month of August.  This is a first annual event being sponsored by Sunflower Cottage Crochet to bring awareness to the challenges faced with premature babies.  The Preemie Crochet Challenge 2020 is a charitable event to help preemie babies, families, charities, and the NICU or neonatal intensive care unit at a local hospital.

 

 

 

This page 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!

 

The event is like a blog hop.  There are 31 crochet designers that will have a free pattern for you to download.  Each pattern you download is a pledge you are taking.  You are pledging to make at least one item that you download and donate to a family, hospital or charity in November for Preemie Awareness Month.

 

I designed a blanket specifically for this event, the Sweet Dreams Preemie Blanket.  In designing the blanket I incorporated a new stitch that I had just learned, the Crunch Stitch.

 

I used 490 yards of Premier Sweet Roll in the Color Gelato Pop. I really love the feel and color of this yarn!  I used and US I Hook or 5.5 mm Hook.  The size of the Sweet Dreams Preemie Blanket is 23” x 23”  The blanket can be made bigger or smaller using the stitch count of 2. The Crunch Stitch always starts with a half double crochet and ends with a slip stitch.

 

Sweet Dreams Preemie Blanket

 

I wanted to help raise awareness of this event because I remember the struggles my aunt and uncle went through when their baby was born premature.  I remember that they didn’t have all of the items a baby needs.  I remember my cousin was kept in the hospital in the NICU because he was having problems with his heart.  When my cousin came home he was still hooked to a heart monitor.  Even though I was a teenager at the time the family was not expecting these problems.  He is a healthy young man now.  The family came together and supported my aunt and uncle through these times.

 

 

Because this cause is so worthy of our time and sacrifice I have decided to extend the free pdf copy of my crochet pattern.  From August 10th – August 17, 2020.  To take advantage of free pattern, click on the button below and that will take you to my pattern at Ravelry.  Use the Coupon Code:  PREEMIE2020 at check out

 

 

I would LOVE to see your version of the Sweet Dreams Preemie Blanket!  You can add your Project to my crochet pattern at Ravelry.  You can also find me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.  You will find all of the places to connect with me below.  When sharing your version please use #sweetdreamspreemieblanket.  Thank you for stopping by Jo’s Crafty Hook!  The button below will take you back to the Preemie Crochet Challenge.

Here is a little bit of information on the Shelly Crop Top to help you decide if you would like to do the Shelly Crop Top crochet pattern.

 

The Shelly Crop Top is the newest crochet pattern in my Wrapped in Love Line eBook of crochet patterns.  All of the crochet patterns inside the eBook can be found in one place, at my Etsy Shop JosCraftyHook here.

 

In designing the crochet pattern I used Lion Brand Mandala yarn when crocheting my crop top.  You can use any 3 Ply Lightweight yarn or DK weight yarn.  I used an I crochet hook or a 5.5mm hook.

 

The crop top is crocheted as one piece.  You start from the bottom and crochet up to the top, working in the round.  The crop top is seamless.  The only sewing involved is of the front and back straps.  The cool thing about the straps is that the pattern repeats in the straps design.

There is even a Video Tutorial in my YouTube library that shows you how to do the repeat rows that make up the crop top.  If you check out the Video Tutorial please Subscribe to my YouTube channel.  You will be notified when I create more designs, helpful tips and more.  You can Subscribe here.  You can find the video tutorial here.

 

Be sure to stop back by Jo’s Crafty Hook where you can find FREE crochet patterns, Roundups, and latest designs that you can find on my website!  Thank you for stopping by Jo’s Crafty Hook and reading about my newest design the Shelly Crop Top!  If you have any questions about the Shelly Crop Top or anything else, you can email me at jo@joscraftyhook.com.

Nellie Summer Tee Free Crochet Pattern

Today I would LOVE to share with you another free crochet pattern by Jo’s Crafty Hook Designs!  The Nellie Summer Tee Free Crochet Pattern started with a new stitch, the N-Stitch.   I learned the N-Stitch during the Spring while testing for another great crochet designer group, Sunflower Cottage Crochet.

This page 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!

If you have never crocheted the N-Stitch, there are Video Tutorials listed in the information about the pattern.  The Left Handed Video Tutorial is done by me and the Right Handed Video Tutorial is done by Sunflower Cottage Crochet.

My crochet pattern testers fell in LOVE with the N-Stitch just like I did!  I would LOVE to give them a BIG shout out because they worked really hard on this design.  There were many hiccups because of the trying times we are in right now.  There were yarn delivery delays, finding time to finish the test, and just trying to function during these troubled times.  I appreciate EVERY single one of them!  They are Jolanta Urb, Anita Reinisch, L. Holly George, and Laina Mann Malcolm.  Below are their versions of the Nellie Summer Tee.

If you would like to receive news when I release another free crochet pattern, or take part in another giveaway, or when I am having a sale please use the form below to sign up for my Newsletter.

  • Place your Stitch Marker where you want to stop the opening on both sides of the top.
  • Sew the panels together using the Whip Stitch or whichever method you prefer to sew the shoulders closed.
