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!

The Facebook Group consists of me and 11 other fiber artist designing a 12″ x 12″ Square for their mystery CAL.  All of the designs were to be and are to held a secret until each artist’s Square is revealed.  Also when we were creating our square there had to be a meaning behind the design.  Therefore each of us 12 fiber artists have a story to tell when our Square is published.

The purpose of the group’s 12 squares is to create an amazing work of art by joining the 12 squares and creating an Afghan.  The creation of the Afghan has you joining 3 Squares across by 4 Squares long.  You can arrange your 12 squares any way you prefer or join them in the order of the CAL.

Even though it is week 2 of the CAL, you will have plenty of time to join us and crochet a Square.  Today is the release of Square #2.  I will be adding to this post weekly, as the next fiber artist’s square is revealed.  So if you have want to join our CAL you can do so here.  Check out the Announcement section of the group for ALL the information you need to start crocheting your Squares!  Also, be sure to subscribe to my email list and you will receive the next Patchwork Mystery Square when it is released!

Well I kind of did things backwards last month with sharing my Twisted Cindy Messy Bun Hat crochet pattern with you.  I should have introduced the first crochet pattern in the Twisted Line I designed.  So without further ado the first crochet pattern in the Twisted Line, the Ribbon Ear Warmers Free Crochet Pattern.  It is called Ribbon because the ear warmers design used a version of the Rib Stitch.

There, now that that is out of the way, in today’s post I will be sharing with you another Free Crochet Pattern that I have designed, the Rib-bon Ear Warmers.  You will find picture tutorials to go along with this pattern.  I even designed the flower that is attached to my version of my pattern.  I hope you enjoy it!

If you are looking for something to calm your Anxiety, lessen your Depression, or help you Cope with your chronic pain from Scoliosis or another disease, this pattern would be Perfect for you!   The pattern is not very long and it uses some basic stitches that won’t cause more pain.

But before we get started I wanted to remind you about our Facebook Group Crochet-A-Long with Us!  We just finished up a CAL by Emily Lagler and her Alphabet Crochet Letters.  You can still find the CAL in the Units Section of our Facebook Group, just in case you wanted to join and take part in the past and future Crochet-A-Longs!  You can find our FB Group here!

The next CAL in our FB Group will be starting soon, March 9th to be exact!  Kat Rombold of Kat’s Krafty Korner will be doing Silly Monster Birthday CAL.  If you are interested in participating, she will be sharing this crochet pattern for FREE when you join our FB Group Crochet-A-Long with Us!

From the Designer:

The Wrapped in Love Set is one of my patterns I feel the strongest about. I designed it with LOVE in mind for the women in my family who have beaten cancer and for those that are facing it now. I also LOVE it because I was able to get my family involved in this project.  They supported me, helped with the design and allowed me to use them as the models!

They are true Survivors and the inspiration behind this pattern!  Anyone who has beaten cancer are true Survivors and an Inspiration to their loved ones, friends, and even complete strangers like me!  Please show YOUR support for Cancer Awareness!

Today I will be sharing with you my Twisted Messy Bun Hat Crochet Pattern.  I am SO excited about bringing you one of the designs in my Twisted Head Gear Line!  That’s right, ONE of the head gear of my Twisted line.

This post contains affiliate links.  If you make a purchase using these links I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you.)

For the rest of 2019 I will be offering you a FREE crochet pattern from my Twisted Head Gear Line.  this line of Head Gear will be Unisex patterns.  I know what you are thinking “A messy bun hat for Men?!?”  Yes, a messy bun hat for Men with long hair can wear this.  I have designed 5 so far and the next 6 are in production (my head lol)!

So right now you can take advantage of this FREE version of the Twisted Messy Bun Hat in size Tween or Small Adult.  You can find the rest of my designs the for this hat at the Ravelry Store here.  The sizes range from Newborn to Large Adult.

I have made a Video Tutorial that goes along with this pattern.  You can find my Video Tutorial for the Tween or Adult Small Messy Bun Hat at my YouTube Channel.  Not all the Rows/Rounds are completed yet, but R1-R4 are available below.

This hat would also be good for chronic pain sufferers or those with Scoliosis to do.  It is not a very long pattern and it would give those who deal with chronic pain from Scoliosis, like me, a feeling of accomplishment.  Crocheting is a Great tool to use if you suffer from Anxiety, Depression, OCD, and Chronic Pain.  It really helps me keep my mind off of pain and it leaves me with a sense that I still can be productive.

With that being said, let’s get started!  Scroll down and you will find the pattern.

3 Crochet Hat Patterns Designs by me, Jo

In today’s post I’d like to share some of my Handmade Crocheted Creations and 3 Crochet Hat Pattern Designs by me, Jo.  I have been testing patterns for other Crocheters these last couple of weeks. I wanted to see how other Crochet designers created their patterns. I learned a lot crocheting for them and really enjoyed my time creating their Crocheted Creations.

I have 3 Crocheted Hat Patterns in my Etsy Shop and here on my website. The first one is called Mint Julep Hat Pattern. In this hat pattern I used the crochet technique of going behind the chain stitch or bump as you Single or Double Crochet. In this technique you get a unique raised stitch that really stands out. You can view this stitch across the rim and the crown of the Mint Julep Messy Bun Hat below.

I also added the technique of going behind the bump in the stitch across the crown and rim of my Purple Waves Hat Pattern. I really like this technique because of the texture it adds to the hat. You can really see the ‘waves’ across the whole hat and especially the rim. I also went in the back loops of the stitches made, adding more texture to the ‘waves.’ Check it out below.

The last pattern, is called the Spiral Messy Bun Hat Pattern here. The Spiral Stitch I used is where you keep crocheting around, not worrying about slip stitching in the first stitch of the round. You can see this technique in the pictures below.

Taking Care of Your Crocheted Cover Ups

[sc name=”Amazon”]

In today’s post I want to talk to you about taking care of your Crocheted Cover Ups.  When taking care of your crocheted cover ups you should know that when using yarn most of them need to be washed specially.  Cotton yarn and Acrylic yarn are some of the most washable friendly yarns, but if you want your handmade crocheted creations to last, you should take special care in how to do it.

I myself wash ALL of my handmade crocheted creations on the Delicate Cycle.  I never throw them in the dryer, I like to air dry them.  When air drying I like to add liquid fabric softner to my wash cycle.  By doing this it ensures the material is still nice and soft when you go to wear it.  It also smells GREAT depending on which liquid fabric softner you use.

This is where Amazon Prime comes in.  By taking advantage of their Prime Membership you can purchase things like Downy and Tide to take special care of your Handmade Crocheted Creations.  Plus you get 2 days shipping!   How COOL is that?!  Click on the Amazon image below and start saving today!
