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

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!

(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.

  1.  Cut pieces of yarn 10”-12” long

  3. Put the ends together and create a loop that can be threaded into the edges of the Poncho. Knot pieces of Fringe onto the Poncho.  This will give you 4 strands of yarn to create the Fringe. 
  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.

Switch to H or 5 mm Hook

Attach yarn in any stitch along the Neck Opening, slip stitch, chain 1 and sc in the same stitch.  sc in each stitch around.

For a Smaller Neck Opening, add 2-3 more rows of Single Crochet.

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.

Below you will find out more about the Summer of Love Tank Top and the free crochet pattern that follows.  Again, thank you for taking part in the Summer Solstice Roundup!

The Summer of Love Tank Top Crochet Pattern is another design I created in recognition of Cancer Awareness Month and the women in my family who were diagnosed with one form of Cancer or another.  I am glad to say they all are cancer FREE right now.  I am so proud of them and their survival, so I decided to design another crochet pattern called the Summer of Love Tank Top!

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.
