Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Blanket

Thank you for stopping by Jo’s Crafty Hook to get a free pdf copy of my Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Blanket and for supporting the Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021 hosted by Helen and Sara of Sunflower Cottage Crochet!  The Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Blanket is a new design just for this challenge!

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

This is my 2nd year designing a baby blanket for the Preemie Crochet Challenge.  I feel strongly about showing my support because even though my daughter was born on time, she was unresponsive when she was born.  The umbilical cord became wrapped around her neck during delivery and it cut off her oxygen supply. She was in hospital’s NICU for 3 days.  She stayed unresponsive for hours after she was born.

My husband asked our church to pray for our daughter and God answered our prayers!  Later the same day our daughter was born, she recovered!  By the 3rd day she was responding well and we were able to take her home!

My baby wasn’t born premature, buy I still designed a Preemie sized blanket along with a Cradle, a Stroller and a Receiving Blanket sizes.  Below you can see the different sizes done by my testers.

 

Here’s what Catherine had to say about this design:

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby is such a fun project to
make. It would have to be one of my favourite projects so
far for 2021. The pattern is so well written, easy to
understand and works up beautifully. I found that it can be
a great scrap buster, where stitch markers are a great
help…It can be made to any size you like…Being one of
the testers I was having so much fun making it, that I
found it so hard to put my work down to do those things
like housework and other daily chores.

 

As part of year 2 of the Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021, hosted by Sunflower Cottage Crochet, you can get a FREE pdf copy of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Blanket!  To get your free pdf copy, until August 31, 2021 please use the download button below and use the Coupon Code:  LITTLESTAR

I am hoping you will donate your version of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Blanket to a preemie baby in need.  You can donate to your local hospital’s NICU or to someone you know who has had a preemie baby.

Thank you for your support!  I would LOVE to see your version of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Blanket!  You can find me at any of the social media sites listed below.  To return to the Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021 please use the button below.

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.

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.

Hi!  My name is Sarah from Rich Textures Crochet! Thank you so much for stopping by, and a big thank you to Jo for allowing me to visit today! I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, but am now residing in Rural Southwestern Ontario.  I am a wife and a mom to four energetic children and an equally energetic border collie.
In crochet I love to play with texture.  I also love to learn new stitches and play with colour, although in my crochet I tend to gravitate to more earthy tones.  My favourite crochet hooks are wooden and I love to work with super bulky weight yarn.
On my blog you’ll find a mix of patterns, from afghans to baby blankets, hats, mitts, scarves and cowls such as the one featured here for Valentines Day.  I’m so glad you stopped by and I look forward to connecting with you on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube! Happy Crocheting!

For the last but not least featured artist for the Blog Hop is Catherine Venner of Crochet Cloudberry.  Below you will meet Cat and find the links to her Hygge Heart Cushion Cover and the discounts she is giving for here pillow cover.  So with out further ado, meet Cat:

My name is Cat and I absolutely love crochet. I picked up a hook for the first time a couple of years ago and have never looked back. With in weeks of learning to crochet, it became an obsession and I started spending every spare minute with a hook and some yarn. Sound familar?

Over time, I started developing my own patterns and ideas of what can be made using crochet techniques. In 2019 I made a new year’s resolution to start my own crochet blog to share tha patterns that I have devised as well as the ideas behind them.

The hygge heart cushion has been inspired by scandi cosiness. As a student I spent the summers living and working in Denmark and so I became familar with the concept of hygge and wanted to bring it into my designs. The Danes frequently use the heart motives in their handicrafts and using self-striping yarn adds to the hygge effect.

For the Valentines promotion – I am submitting to you the Hygge Heart Cushion Cover. I have set up a 20% discount code in Etsy and Ravelry for it. It runs until Feb 16th and starts today. The code is “BEMINE2020”.
You can hop over to Cat’s blog post she wrote about her Hygge Cushion Cover: https://crochetcloudberry.co.uk/crochet-journal/hygge-heart-cushion-cover/
You can also hop on over to Cat’s blog post about this Valentine’s Day Blog Hop: https://crochetcloudberry.co.uk/crochet-journal/valentines-day-blog-hop/ 
I want to thank all of the fiber artists who joined me for my very first blog hop, the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop 2020!  I want to thank you, the readers as well!  Be sure to Hop on over to all the websites listed above so you can crochet their loved designs for your loved ones!
Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Crocheting!
