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.

  • Place your Stitch Marker where you want to stop the opening on both sides of the top.

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.

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.

Rugged Slopes Cowl Crochet Pattern

Jo’s Crafty Hook Designs is bringing you another free crochet pattern, the Rugged Slopes Cowl.  The Rugged Slopes Cowl Crochet Pattern has a matching hat, the Rugged Slopes Messy Bun & Beanie which you can find here on my website.  Just like the Rugged Slopes Beanie crochet pattern shown on my website the size offered below is size Small Adult.

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!

The Rugged Slopes Cowl also uses the Sedge Stitch, which is a new stitch I learned not that long ago.  I love learning new stitches and I hope you do too!  I currently learned how to do the Celtic Weave, the Crunch Stitch, the N Stitch and more.  This year has opened so many new things that I never tried before.  You can read more about some of the new things I have tried here on my website.

If you are like me and have Scoliosis, Depression, Anxiety this is the perfect crochet pattern to take your mind off of your troubles.  Crocheting always seems to calm my worries and gives me a sense of hope in creating something for someone to love!

If you are wanting to crochet a larger size you can find the Rugged Cowl Crochet Pattern at my Ravelry Store here or at my Etsy Shop here.  I hope you enjoy the Sedge Stitch as much as I have, so let’s get started!

Fairland Sweater Free Crochet Pattern

The Fairland Sweater Free Crochet Pattern was inspired by one of my crochet pattern testers, Laura.  We both fell in love with the Herringbone Half Double Crochet, which is used in this crochet pattern.  Laura told me the design I was using for the Rain Drops Mittens would look awesome in a sweater.  Therefore the Fairland Sweater was born.

The great thing I found in designing this sweater was the feedback I received from my pattern testers.  It led me to look at the design from their point of views.  I always encourage my crochet pattern testers to be completely honest with me whether the comments are good or bad.  I ask them:  “How am I going to grow as a Crochet Designer if no one gives me feedback; asks questions, or comments on a particular part of the design?”  Below you will hear from another one of my testers, so be sure to look for it.

So let’s get started on crocheting the Fairland Sweater!

Another one of my crochet pattern tester was interested in sharing her viewpoint about the Fairland Sweater’s sleeves.  Below is what she has to say about altering sleeves to YOUR fit:

The construction of this sweater offers a unique opportunity to easily alter the sleeves for a custom fit. Due to the drop shoulders the sleeve opening will fall on a different place on your arm depending on how you choose to have your sweater fit (form fitting, or loose). I prefer to have my sweaters more form fitting. I made the medium sweater and the sleeve openings felt a little tight for me because they fell very close to my shoulder. All I had to do was go up one size on the sleeve portion and then they fit perfectly!  The transverse is also true. If you like a very loose fit to your sweater you may want to go down a size on your sleeves.

Sleeves Make 2 (repeat on opposite side) 

Step 1:  From the Top of the Sweater measure 6.5” (7” 7.5” 8” 8.5” 9”) and place Stitch Marker in Stitch on each panel.  Leave Stitch Marker in place as a guide to where you will place your first and last stitch for your Sleeves.  

Optional:  Use the Halfway count from Table above or count 18 (20, 22, 24, 26, 28) from the Top of sweater and place Stitch Marker in Stitch on each side.  You will have a total of 36 (40, 44, 48, 52, 56) st for your armhole.

Step 2:  Sew Panels together, using the Mattress Stitch, from the bottom using your Stitch Marker, at the Armhole, as a guide for when to stop.
