Each Wednesday of the month, starting Sept. 16th I will be adding a pattern from the set.  The first week will be the Hat, the second week (Sept 23rd) will be the Cowl and the third week (Sept 30th) will be the Gloves.  I will post the web address at Connie’s Crochet Guild on each Wednesday.

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.

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!

Wrapped in Diamonds Wrap

Jo’s Crafty Hook’s design,Wrapped in Diamonds Wrap, is being featured in the Sun at Home Blog Hop that starts May 11, 2020 and runs until June 1, 2020.  Jo’s Crafty Hook Designs design will be featured on May 21, 2020.  This Wrap is perfect for those warm summer days and those long chilly nights.

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!

Helen and Sara of Sunflower Cottage Crochet are sponsoring the Sun at Home Blog Hop.  There are 22 fabulous crochet designers that have the perfect crochet pattern to match the Sun at Home theme.  To see the free crochet pattern of the day and more information about this event, click on the button below to be directed to Sunflower Cottage Crochet.

On May 21, 2020 you will be able to download an Ad Free PDF crochet pattern of my Wrapped in Diamonds Wrap for 24 hours!  There are 2 ways you can get the free crochet pattern.  One way is to use the Coupon Code SUNATHOME at my Ravelry Store here.  The second way is to click on the Button below and you will be directed to Ravelry and the crochet pattern.  Be sure to save the crochet pattern in your Favorites while at Ravelry!


In designing my Wrapped in Diamonds Wrap I was scrolling through Pinterest trying to find some inspiration for a new design.  I was scrolling through my Crochet Stitches Board, which can be found here, looking for that perfect stitch.  I came across the Argyle Shell Stitch and fell in LOVE!!

My Wrapped in Diamonds Wrap measures 26″ wide x 73″ long.  The yarn I used is Lion Brand Coboo Yarn.  I used 1000 yards of this beautiful lightweight cotton and bamboo mix.  You can make yours any size you like.  I wanted it long to be able to wrap around myself.

The Argyle Shell Stitch consists of a 4 row pattern repeat.  The pictures below show how the Diamonds take shape after each row is added.  Rows 2-5 create the pattern repeats that build the Diamond shapes.

As you can see by the picture below the Argyle Shell Stitch creates the perfect Diamond shapes that come out in the Wrapped in Diamonds Wrap.  The picture below also shows the Edging that I created to surround the beautiful Diamond shapes.

You can use the Argyle Shell Stitch yourself and create a beautiful Wrap,  Blanket, and so much more!  I have a Video Tutorial that has a great example on how to crochet the Argyle Shell Stitch.

To purchase the Wrapped in Diamonds Wrap’s Ad Free PDF Crochet Pattern from Ravelry you can find it here.  While you are there, be sure to check out some of my other crochet designs here.

I LOVE the Argyle Shell Stitch so much that I have designed a lightweight Summer Tee!  The crochet pattern will go into the Testing Phase next month!  If you are interested in Testing the Summer Tee or any of my newest designs, you can join me at Jo’s Crafty Hook Designs Tester Group here!  The Nellie Summer Tee below is in the Testing Phase right now.
