Rugged Slopes Cowl Crochet Pattern

Jo’s Crafty Hook Designs is bringing you another free crochet pattern, the Rugged Slopes Cowl.  The Rugged Slopes Cowl Crochet Pattern has a matching hat, the Rugged Slopes Messy Bun & Beanie which you can find here on my website.  Just like the Rugged Slopes Beanie crochet pattern shown on my website the size offered below is size Small Adult.

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 Rugged Slopes Cowl also uses the Sedge Stitch, which is a new stitch I learned not that long ago.  I love learning new stitches and I hope you do too!  I currently learned how to do the Celtic Weave, the Crunch Stitch, the N Stitch and more.  This year has opened so many new things that I never tried before.  You can read more about some of the new things I have tried here on my website.

If you are like me and have Scoliosis, Depression, Anxiety this is the perfect crochet pattern to take your mind off of your troubles.  Crocheting always seems to calm my worries and gives me a sense of hope in creating something for someone to love!

If you are wanting to crochet a larger size you can find the Rugged Cowl Crochet Pattern at my Ravelry Store here or at my Etsy Shop here.  I hope you enjoy the Sedge Stitch as much as I have, so let’s get started!

Fairland Sweater Free Crochet Pattern

The Fairland Sweater Free Crochet Pattern was inspired by one of my crochet pattern testers, Laura.  We both fell in love with the Herringbone Half Double Crochet, which is used in this crochet pattern.  Laura told me the design I was using for the Rain Drops Mittens would look awesome in a sweater.  Therefore the Fairland Sweater was born.

The great thing I found in designing this sweater was the feedback I received from my pattern testers.  It led me to look at the design from their point of views.  I always encourage my crochet pattern testers to be completely honest with me whether the comments are good or bad.  I ask them:  “How am I going to grow as a Crochet Designer if no one gives me feedback; asks questions, or comments on a particular part of the design?”  Below you will hear from another one of my testers, so be sure to look for it.

So let’s get started on crocheting the Fairland Sweater!

Another one of my crochet pattern tester was interested in sharing her viewpoint about the Fairland Sweater’s sleeves.  Below is what she has to say about altering sleeves to YOUR fit:

The construction of this sweater offers a unique opportunity to easily alter the sleeves for a custom fit. Due to the drop shoulders the sleeve opening will fall on a different place on your arm depending on how you choose to have your sweater fit (form fitting, or loose). I prefer to have my sweaters more form fitting. I made the medium sweater and the sleeve openings felt a little tight for me because they fell very close to my shoulder. All I had to do was go up one size on the sleeve portion and then they fit perfectly!  The transverse is also true. If you like a very loose fit to your sweater you may want to go down a size on your sleeves.

I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, but am now residing in Rural Southwestern Ontario.  I am a wife and a mom to four energetic children and an equally energetic border collie.
In crochet I love to play with texture.  I also love to learn new stitches and play with colour, although in my crochet I tend to gravitate to more earthy tones.  My favourite crochet hooks are wooden and I love to work with super bulky weight yarn.
On my blog you’ll find a mix of patterns, from afghans to baby blankets, hats, mitts, scarves and cowls such as the one featured here for Valentines Day.  I’m so glad you stopped by and I look forward to connecting with you on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube! Happy Crocheting!

For the last but not least featured artist for the Blog Hop is Catherine Venner of Crochet Cloudberry.  Below you will meet Cat and find the links to her Hygge Heart Cushion Cover and the discounts she is giving for here pillow cover.  So with out further ado, meet Cat:

My name is Cat and I absolutely love crochet. I picked up a hook for the first time a couple of years ago and have never looked back. With in weeks of learning to crochet, it became an obsession and I started spending every spare minute with a hook and some yarn. Sound familar?

Over time, I started developing my own patterns and ideas of what can be made using crochet techniques. In 2019 I made a new year’s resolution to start my own crochet blog to share tha patterns that I have devised as well as the ideas behind them.

The hygge heart cushion has been inspired by scandi cosiness. As a student I spent the summers living and working in Denmark and so I became familar with the concept of hygge and wanted to bring it into my designs. The Danes frequently use the heart motives in their handicrafts and using self-striping yarn adds to the hygge effect.

For the Valentines promotion – I am submitting to you the Hygge Heart Cushion Cover. I have set up a 20% discount code in Etsy and Ravelry for it. It runs until Feb 16th and starts today. The code is “BEMINE2020”.
You can hop over to Cat’s blog post she wrote about her Hygge Cushion Cover: https://crochetcloudberry.co.uk/crochet-journal/hygge-heart-cushion-cover/
You can also hop on over to Cat’s blog post about this Valentine’s Day Blog Hop: https://crochetcloudberry.co.uk/crochet-journal/valentines-day-blog-hop/ 
I want to thank all of the fiber artists who joined me for my very first blog hop, the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop 2020!  I want to thank you, the readers as well!  Be sure to Hop on over to all the websites listed above so you can crochet their loved designs for your loved ones!
Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Crocheting!

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.

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!


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.
