Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL

Welcome to my Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL!!  The Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL starts today, May 10th and runs until May 31, 2022.  This is a FREE Crochet-a-Long and we will be making a Throw Size Afghan.

 

 

 

Thank you for your interest in my Mae’s Flowers Crochet Pattern.  This is a project that has been in the works for over 25 years.  My gram started making these flowers for an Afghan back in 1994.  I inherited the Afghan when she passed away about 20 years ago.  It moved from house to house, taken out every once in a while, and I always said I was going to finish it and I have.

I decided I would write out the steps she did and turn it into a crochet pattern.  I took the flowers apart to learn the stitches she used, so I could make my own.  This pattern is dedicated to Gram.  She was a very important part of my life.   I hope you enjoy making the Mae’s Flowers too!  

 

You can now purchase the Mae’s Flower Garden Crochet Pattern for $3 at my Ravelry Store.  Inside the PDF copy of the Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan crochet pattern there are a lot of extra goodies for Right & Left Handed crocheters.

  • 2 Sizes to Choose from – Throw or Lapghan
  • Step-by-Step Picture Tutorials
  • Video Tutorials of Flowers and Assembly

 

There will also be a Contest with Prizes!!  See how you can enter below!!

Throughout the month of May there will be Sneak Peeks of the beautiful WIPs from my testers!  There will be their versions of their Flowers and Afghans!  You will also find out below how YOUR WIPs can be added to my website each week!!

At the end of the Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL I will have a BIG REVEAL!!  I will be revealing the finished versions of mine and my testers’ afghans!  You can even get YOUR versions added to the BIG REVEAL!!

The CAL will be in 3 stages.  I will add the crochet patterns for each stage using the schedule below:

The afghan can be made in a solid color or a variety of colors as you like.  The flowers use such a small amount of yarn that you can use up ALL of that Scrap Yarn you have laying around!

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

I was updating some of my earlier crochet when I came across the stitch I fell in love with when I was first designing, the Tulip Stitch.  I had some beautiful yarn I bought at a fiber fair that I was chomping at the bit to use, so I used that here with my Jaide Wrap. 

I used Custom Yarn by Knitting on the Fringe. (Skein Weight:75g/2.64 oz
Yardage/Meters: 200 meters/217 yards)

 

Materials:
US G Crochet Hook or 4 mm
217 yards of # 2 Fine Yarn or Sports Weight Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Stitches Used/Abbreviations:
dc – double crochet
sc – single crochet
ch – chain
alt ch 2 – alternate chain 2
fsc – foundation single crochet
sk – skip
rem – remaining

Special Stitches:
Shell = (2 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) all in the same stitch.
Foundation Single Crochet – is where you create the starting chain plus a row of single crochet all at one time.

Special Notes:

My yarn was handmade.  With the different weights of 2 Fine Yarn or Sport Weight Yarn it may make your gauge a little different from mine.  You can try going up or down a hook size to meet the gauge.

Video Tutorials:
foundation single crochet – Left Handed
foundation single crochet – Right Handed
alternate chain 2 – Left Handed
alternate chain 2 – Right Handed

Finished Size:  14” x 64”

Pattern Notes:
Pattern is written in U.S. Crochet Terms
beginning chain 3 counts as the 1st dc
alt ch 2 counts as the 1st dc
alt ch 2 takes the place of a double crochet and counts as your 1st dc.  It is used to create a cleaner edge.
Row count is a multiple of 3
Due to different yarn types, the gauge may be off.  Try going up or down a hook size to meet gauge.

Gauge:
US G Crochet Hook or 4 mm
18 st x 8 rows = 4”
6 Shells x 8 Rows = 4”

Gauge Swatch:  4” x 4″

R1:  ch 19, sc in 2nd ch from and each rem st across.  turn (18 sc)

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

 

Customizing:

Width: 
To create a wider wrap (short rows) add multiples of 3.  The basic width of a wrap is 14” – 18”

Use your Height plus 4” – 8” to reach your desired length by continuing to repeat R2 & R3.

4 st x 2 rows = 1”

Two Faced Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

Thank you for stopping by Jo’s Crafty Hook!  In today’s post you will find my Two Faced Scarf Free Crochet Pattern.

Have you ever crocheted a scarf and the design looks great on one side, but the other side of the item is upside down?  Well I have.   When making a design I want to see the design the right way on both sides.  That is how I designed the Two Faced Scarf Crochet Pattern, seeing the pattern the right way on both sides.

Wigs for Kids Charity Drive

Have you ever done something for someone else that made you feel really good? Or because you knew it would help make a little girl feel really special?

Here’s a little back story about how I got involved with Wigs for Kids.

I was loosing my hair a few years ago.  I was SO upset and going crazy.  I didn’t want to go anywhere, have anyone see me, I was so self conscious.  Eventually, I found out it was one of my medications.  I stopped taking it, got help from my adopted daughter, Vicki, and slowly my hair started growing back.  
After about a year, I went to a beauty salon to get my hair leveled out and I saw a sign advertisement for Wigs for Kids.  I asked the beautician what that was about and she gave me the details.
My experience was so traumatic that I wanted to do something to help because I could just imagine how a little girl losing her hair would feel.  After I seen the advertisement I let my hair grow out, and when it got long enough, I donated it to Wigs for Kids.  When I sent my hair to them, I asked it there was any way to see how my donation helped.  I got to see a picture of a little girl who got just a little of my hair helped out!  That was one of the best feelings ever!  I just donated my hair again about a year ago.  So you can see why this cause is very close to my heart ❤️

 

 

I joined Melanie Jane of Simply Melanie Jane in her Crochet Business Hop for Charity because I wanted to do more to help little girls feel special.  Melanie Jane has joined with 12 other crochet designers to raise money for the Wigs for Kids organization.  Her goal is to raise $1,800 to support this organization.

Melanie’s hop is a little different from most blog hops.  Each day she is spotlighting a crochet designer, sharing what it is that the do and letting you know how they are helping raise money for the drive.  The spotlighted designers are offering discounts and donating part of the proceeds to the Wigs for Kids charity drive.

If you would like to take part by donating your hair or help in some other way, visit Melanie’s Crochet Business Hop for Charity or you can donate directly to the Wigs for Kids Donor Drive.

You can check out the other designers beings spotlighted by clicking the button below.

 

 

Jo’s Crafty Hook is being in the spotlight again on February 18, 2022.  To change things up, I decided to offer another way to raise money for the Wigs for Kids Charity Drive.  Starting February 17-20, 2022 you can take advantage of my 50% off sale at my Ravelry and Etsy Shops.

 

 

 

You can still take advantage of the Child Size Pocket Shawl Bundle that offers you a discount as well as raising money for the charity drive.  50% of the proceeds of the Child Size Pocket Shawl Bundle will go to the Wigs for Kids Charity Drive.

 

 

Inside the bundle there are 2 child size pocket shawl crochet patterns, the Pocket Full of Diamonds and the Diamond Arches.  These shawls are designed specifically for little girls in mind.

My Child Size Pocket Shawl Bundle price has already been marked down, so you get a discount and the rest of the proceeds will go right to the Wigs for Kids Charity Drive.  You can take advantage of the bundle from my Ravelry Store (no coupon code needed).

Spread the word about this great Crochet Business Hop for Charity and more importantly the Wigs for Kids organization.

Please show your support in any way you can.  Thank you.

The story behind this pattern comes from the Christmas song you hear during the Christmas season, ‘O Holy Night’

“O holy night, the stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth; Long lay the world in sin and error pining, ‘Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn; Chorus Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angel voices! O night divine!”

The stitches used in the pattern will create the stars and angels motifs from the lyrics of the song.  I hope you enjoy crocheting the O Holy Night Wrap.
