Leaf Crochet Pattern:
**I made my leaves in 2 different colors.  2 leaves will be attached to each flower**

Step 1:
Starting with a long tail of yarn (about 2”) ch 15.

Step 2:
sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next st, hdc in next 2 st, dc in next 2 st , trc in next 2 st, dc in next 2 st , hdc in next 2 st , sc in next st, 2 sc in last st.

Step 3:
turn your to crochet on the other side of the foundation chain. 

Step 4:
2 sc in 1st st, hdc in next 2 st, dc in next 2 st, trc in next 2 st, dc in next 2 st, hdc in next 2 st, sc in next st, sl st in last st and in 1st st to join.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Repeat Steps 1-4 until you have 14 leaves or as many as you desire.

**********************************************************

Flower Assembly:

  

Step 1:

With your tapestry needle and the long tail of yarn you created at the beginning ch, sew a leaf on each side of the loop you just made.  **I glued my leaves to the back of the flowers to hold them in place.**

Repeat for each flower.

Step 2:

Cut a long piece of rope or cable about 8” – 10” (or as long as you desire) for your bunting string.  This is what you will use to hang your flowers on.  You can also crochet a long foundation single crochet chain instead of using a cable or rope.

Step 3:

Weave your bunting string through each loop made on the flower.

Step 4:

Measure 4” from the beginning and end of your bunting string and place a stitch marker in each place.  

**this will give you enough string on each end to attach your bunting to a nail or hook placed on the surface the bunting will hang from.**

Step 5:

Evenly space your flowers apart on your bunting string.  

Step 6:

Using your twist tie or a small piece of yarn fasten your flowers in place.

Step 7:

Hang your bunting to your wall, fireplace, tree, or any place you like.

Diamonds Square Crochet Pattern

I am happy to bring you my Diamonds Square Crochet Pattern that was designed specifically for the Friendship Blanket CAL hosted by Helen and Sara of 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, my Ravelry Store, my Etsy Shop, and LoveCrafts  going and provide quality designs just for you!

In designing the blanket, we wanted to bring you squares that have texture and definition.  When crocheting the diamond square you will see a lot of texture and definition in the shapes that appear.

When designing the square and thinking about the blanket, I wanted to cover you in what every person loves, Diamonds!  With the finished look of the square it reminds me of the diamond pattern that shows up in Argyle Socks.  lol

The diamonds square crochet pattern uses the basic crochet stitches found in many crochet patterns.  I used the Argyle Shell Stitch.  If you are unfamiliar with this stitch, there are helpful picture and video tutorials in the pattern below.

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

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!

JOANN Stores
(Optional)  Finishing Stocking:
Here you will be making your “Loop” that you use to attach the ornament to the tree or whatever you will be hanging it from.  I chained 5 which makes a small “Loop” for me to attach the mini stocking ornament to my tree but you can chain as many as you like.

After you join on Round 16 ch 1, sc in same st, ch 5, and sc in same st.

Fasten off and weave in loose ends with Tapestry Needle.

Congratulations!  You now have a 4 inch Mini Stocking Ornament.

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.

Twisted Twizzle Set Crochet Pattern

The Twisted Twizzler Set crochet pattern is a great crochet pattern if you LOVE doing Cables/Braids like I do.  If you do then this set is perfect for you!  If you haven’t had much practice with Cables, that’s ok too!  I have supplied Video Tutorials to help you crochet the stitches used in this set!

In this post the Twisted Twizzler Set contains a hat and a scarf crochet pattern.  The crochet patterns for the hat and scarf have multiple sizes, so you can do one for each member of your family and friends.  The hat and scarf sizes range from newborn to adult large.  This crochet pattern is part of my Twisted Line of Head Gear, where all the crochet patterns are unisex, which means that the finished items can be worn by men and women.

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.

Leave a long tail for sewing shoulders closed.

Sides:

  • Lay Right Sides of the panels facing each other.  
  • Use the Table at the top of the pattern for the size of your Armholes.  I measured from the top of the panels and placed Stitch Markers where you will stop when sewing sides closed.
  • Start at the bottom of the panels and sew the sides together using the Whip Stitch, or Mattress Stitch until you get to the Armholes.  
  • If you would like more room at the hips, leave a 2”-4” slit at the  bottom on each size of the Panels.  I made a 2” slits.

Shoulders:

  • Using the Table at the top of the pattern, find the size of the neck hole opening.  
  • 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.
