Cocoon with Beanie Crochet Pattern

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Information about Snuggle Bug Preemie Baby Cocoon and Beanie Crochet Pattern below.

With the cocoon being part of this scrap busting event, I used 5 different crochet stitches for each part.  I used:

Half Double Crochet
Herringbone Half Double Crochet
Feather Stitch Stitch
Half Double Crochet in the Back Loop Only
Braided Puff Stitch

Notes:

The Cocoon is worked in the round.  

Some rounds of the Cocoon will have turning rows.

There will be a color change for each type of stitches used.

Due to different stitches used in each color block the Gauge will be different due to types of stitches used.

Each designer uses a different technique for their Puff Stitches, so the Right Handed Video Tutorial may be different from how the Special Stitch instructions for the Puff Stitch are written.

The Braided Puff Stitches are created using a 2 row repeat using my version of the Puff Stitch.

Placing a SM in 1st st of every round keeps a nice even st and it helps you not lose your place when going into the next round.

 

There are Left and Right Handed Video Tutorials inside the Snuggle Bug Preemie Baby Cocoon Crochet Pattern.

Size:
8” x 13”

Materials:
300-500 yds of #4 Ply Worsted/Aran Weight Yarn
US H Crochet Hook or 5 mm
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

The baby cocoon can be customized using the Gauge below.

Gauge:
US H Crochet Hook or 5 mm
16 hdc x 8 rows = 4”

 

You can find the premium copy of the Snuggle Bug Preemie Cocoon with Beanie Crochet Pattern at my Ravelry Store and LoveCrafts starting January 19, 2023.

Oyster Shell Scarf Crochet Pattern

I designed a stitch a couple of years ago that I called the Lilac Cluster Stitch.  I always wanted to use the stitch in a design that works in rows.  The Lilac Cluster  Beanie and Cowl I designed are worked in the round.  I think it turned out pretty good!  lol 

 

The Lilac Cluster Stitch uses the basic crochet stitches with stitch decreases thrown in.  I used the Double Crochet 3 Together and the Double Crochet 6 Together.

I know this sounds complicated, but once you practice these stitches you will become a master at them.

You can find a Left Handed Video Tutorial on my YouTube Channel that teaches you how to make the Lilac Cluster Beanie using the Lilac Cluster Stitch.  You can also find more of my Left Handed Video Tutorials on my YouTube Channel.

CAL-Crochet A Long’s Design-a-Scarf Challenge

The Oyster Shell Scarf was designed as part of a Design-a-Scarf Challenge Contest hosted by CAL-Crochet A Long.

There were a lot of beautiful scarves designed by a number of crochet designers.  You can find out more information about the Design-a-Scarf Challenge on CAL-Crochet A Long’s website.

There are many CALs going on year round at CAL – Crochet A Long.  You can always find them at their website, their FB Page, and inside their FB Group.

Tester’s Testimonies about the Oyster Shell Scarf Crochet Pattern.

Joke PatrickVandecasteele-Wegsteen 

Very nice pattern with a very clear explanation. By repeating the rows over and over, you will quickly master the stitches. I think it’s a plus that there are step-by-step pic tutorials for left-handed crocheters.


Carol Ann Reddy

The Oyster scarf is a great pattern. Written with clarity and easy comprehension.  I found it very easy to work on and finished it in no time! Working with Joey was a pleasure. This scarf can be tackled even by a beginner and the result is very satisfying. I hope that I can test any of her future patterns as well.

Winter Pine Table Runner

During season changes, in certain areas of the world, you can see all of the beautiful pine trees change colors. 

I live in NE Ohio and I love to watch as my son’s pine trees change to beautiful colors in each season. 

With the Winter Pine Table Runner crochet pattern I want to show off some of the colors of the pine trees I see during the winter seasons.


More information about my Winter Pine Table Runner Crochet Pattern.

I used a filet design to create the pine trees.  I added a white border to create a ‘snow like’ affect.  I think the white border adds a little something extra to the design.

Inside the crochet pattern there are 5 sizes to choose from to fit any size table.  There are 3 panels, showing the different colors of the pine trees.  There is also a gauge inside to help you create the perfect size for your table.

Inside the premium crochet pattern you will find picture tutorials to help you see the pine tree repeats; how to add the edging of each panel; how to connect the panels; and how to add the border.

You can find the premium crochet pattern for a small fee at my Ravelry Store

I used 3 colors of KnitPicks 100% Premium Acrylic Yarn.  #4 Worsted Weight Yarn.  (218 yds / 100 g)

I used Dublin, Avocado, and Green Tea Heather.

You can find these colors and more at KnitPicks.

Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs

The Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs crochet pattern uses a stitch I fell in love with a couple of years ago, the Sedge Stitch.

As a crochet designer I try to incorporate new crochet stitches in my newer designs.  But, I recently saw the Sedge Stitch and remembered I used it in a couple of my previous designs.  I used the Sedge Stitch in my Messy Bun and Beanie crochet pattern and my Rugged Slopes Cowl crochet pattern.  

The Sedge Stitch is an easy stitch to do because all it consists of is a single crochet and 2 double crochet all in the same stitch.

Inside this post you will find a free crochet pattern for my Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs for 9″ wide by 4″ in height.

You can find the premium crochet patterns for my Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs, Rugged Slopes Messy Bun and Beanie; and Rugged Slopes Cowl at my Ravelry Store.

Inside the Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs premium crochet pattern, there are 5 different sizes to choose from based on the width of your calf and the height you prefer to do.

There are also step-by-step picture tutorials to help you figure out your width and how the other steps you may need to crochet your boot cuffs.

You can purchase the premium copy of the Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs to find the right size for you from my Ravelry Store for a small fee.  Click the button below to get a copy of the Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs.
