Crochet Olive Shell Rectangular Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Olive Shell Rectangular Shawl

Shawl or Wrap plays an important role in woman’s wardrobe as an all-rounder accessory. There are various different styles to carry a shawl; as a prayer shawl, a party shoulder robe for dresses, a winter cowl or scarf, or as a stole to go along with Indian kurta.

This multi-purpose accessory is a wonder and a gift to every woman. I wanted to make a shawl that not only brings warmth but also adds contrast to a gorgeous sequin dress. I chose to make a shawl using Olive colour yarn. Traditionally, this colour olive green represents the peace and brings comfort to eyes.

Easy to wear and carry around, the thickness of the wool promises ample warmth. You can either wear as a day-lunch or an evening outhouse party. 

Process:

I like the corner to corner (C2C) style Shell pattern by Hillary on her blog. I did some calculations and modifications to make a rectangular shawl. The process contains series of double crochet stitch (DC), Single Crochet (SC) and Chain (ch).

R1: chain 68+3. Multiples of 4+3.

The chain was 19″ long.

R2: Starting with 3 DC in the 4th hook on the chain, *skip 3 ch, SC in next ch, ch 3, 3 DC in same Ch*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with SC in the last Ch; Ch 3, turn.

R3: 3 DC in 1st SC, *SC, Ch 3, 3 DC in the Ch 3 space of the previous row*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with SC in the last Ch; Ch 3, turn.

Repeat R3 until the desired shawl length.

Last Row (LR): 2 DC in 1st SC, * SC in next Ch 3 space, Ch 3*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with SC in the last Ch. Slip Stitch and sew.

Remember: to give any lacey effect the crochet hook should be more than 2-3mm bigger than the recommended hook. 

Since the yarn was bulky and stretchy, I used 5.5mm, a smaller hook, than recommended.

Caution Section:-

  • Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.
  • Check the initial 3-4 rows to get the desired width. The number of chains and the stitching style will change the width.
  • Every person works loose or medium or tight stitch. Thus, the width and length of the scarf changes. I focused on medium stitch to give the smooth flow.
  • I used a small crochet hook than recommended as the wool has elasticity.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 65″
  • Width: 18″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, blue, olive will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.
  • Decrease the width and convert this wrap/stole/shawl into a beautiful lacy scarf.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Tiranga Loop Wristlet Mobile Cover - Knot My Designs

Tiranga Loop Wristlet Mobile Cover

Being an Indian, it was no brainer that I was planning to make something depicting my national flag. It’s independence day! after all. The day we got freedom from colonisation.

India has a rich culture and history. If analysed deeply, we can find that people from all over the world have attacked India but Indians were never travelled far to capture other countries in the world. We do have wars and victories within regions and over decades, to gain authority but we never conquered any country for centuries.

After more than 200 years of British suppression, India saw an uprising among people, who came together to fight for freedom. The Indian Freedom struggle continued for almost a century (from 1857 to 1947). All over India, various battles occurred over the century and finally, after World War II, we got freedom.

Process:

The process is series of Single Crochet stitches with the change in colour as per Indian Flag.  The rows depend on the total length of the phone and equally divided in 3 colours.

This mobile pouch does not have wristlet attached in the corner but designed to close up the cover and provide the handle.

Pouch:

R1: starting with Ch 34, join with Slip Stitch (SL ST )at the 1st chain. 

R2: CH 1, Single Crochet (SC) in each chain. Join at the 1st SC with SL ST. Total 34 SC.

Using Green colour yarn: Repeat R2 14 times. Turn the work inside out and slip stitch the base. Turn right side up and continue.

Using Cream colour yarn: Repeat R2 12 times.

Using Peach colour yarn: Repeat R2 12 times.

Use stitch markers to detect the centre of the cover on both sides. 

Loop:-

R1: In this case, SC up to 8 counts, skip 2 SC, ch 5, SC in 8 counts on the side and SC 18 counts.

R2: SC up to 8 counts, 5 sc in chain 5, SC in next 8 counts. and continue making the handle.

Handle:-

Row: In this case, Single crochet(SC) up to 9 counts, ch 60, SC for next 9 counts.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarns is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose one crochet hook and changed my technique for different yarns.
  4. The number of initial chain counts differs as per points 1 and 2. Thus it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″ and avoid any rework later. 
  5. Frequent checks of the measurement will save a lot of time and energy.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl

Have you ever been in a situation in which you have a certain dish in your mind and you enter the restaurant to curb the craving for that dish, but the moment you glance at the menu, you change your mind?

Like a kid in a candy store, confused and excited at the same time, you change your mind and end up buying something else. Somewhere you still crave for the first choice but the chance is gone. The purchase is made and you cannot get it anymore now.

“I was in the same shoes. I am like a crocheter in a pattern store”. With hundreds of intricate and colourful patterns floating around me and attracting me, drilling down to one pattern is a huge task. There is a vision, a look, and my journey to find that particular design continues till I get it.

When I started the Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl, I do not even remember the number of patterns I had already tried; shells, picots, closed stitches, trebles, star stitch, arcade stitch etc. Frogging 5-10 rows and again looking for a different design. I still kept trying for that particular pattern that kept reappearing in my dreams.

Crochet Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Attempt 1 – failed

Crochet Yellowstone Wraparound Shawl for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Attempt 2 – failed

The pattern was V-Stitch. After every unsuccessful attempt, I concluded that v-stitch was the best suitable design. Although, I still get tempted to try out another pattern. I, finally, redirected myself to follow the initial gut feeling.

Process:

The process contains series of double crochet stitch (DC) and Chain 1 (ch).

R1: chain 90. Multiples of 3+4.

The chain was 21″ long.

R2: Starting from the 4th hook on the chain, DC, ch 1, DC, *skip 1 ch, DC, ch 1, DC*; repeat from *-* till the end of the chain with 2 chain stitches. skip next ch and DC.

R3: Ch 2, *(DC, Ch 1, DC ) in next ch 1 space; repeat * in all the ch-1 space, ending with DC in the last row DC.

Repeat R3 until the desired shawl length.

Remember: to give any lacey effect the crochet hook should be more than 2-3mm bigger than the recommended hook. 

Since the yarn was bulky and stretchy, I used 5.5mm, a smaller hook, than recommended.

Caution Section:-

  • Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.
  • Check the initial 3-4 rows to get the desired width. The number of chains and the stitching style will change the width.
  • Every person works loose or medium or tight stitch. Thus, the width and length of the scarf changes. I focused on medium stitch to give the smooth flow.
  • I used a small crochet hook than recommended as the wool has elasticity.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 70″
  • Width: 18″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, blue, olive will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.
  • Decrease the width and convert this wrap/stole/shawl into a beautiful lacy scarf.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Griddle Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch for a female - Knot My Designs

Griddle Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch

With the advent of spring come the life and the colours. Trees that looked withered in winters are full of life; flowers blossom creating a mystic view. As if someone has painted the world around. Remember the Cherry Blossom tree?

I captured this from a Cherry Blossom Festival. This festival is celebrated every year from March 15- April 20, in various states of the US. It is celebrated as a token of friendship with Japan. Cherry trees, also called “Sakura” in Japanese, were planted in Sakura Park, Manhattan in 1912. It was sowed across the eastern US and San Diego over the years.

Cherry Blossoms

P.C. Missouri Cherry Blossom Festival

 

In Japan, Hanami (flower viewing) is a traditional custom celebrated every year during this season. It is to remind us about the changing seasons and inspire us to adopt and adapt to the change. After a harsh winter, the leaves, the buds, the flowers blossom to greet the new season.

The pictures and its colours motivated me to bring this look in a mobile wristlet pouch. I used peach –the shade most resembling the cherry blossoms– as the base colour and white edging to give a feel of the white snow melting off the edges of the tree branches.

Process:

This pouch is created from the bottom to top, and to do this we start with the 1st row by turning the cover inside out. Once done, we change back to right side and start with the edge. I added a crocheted loop on one side of the mobile cover to tie wristlet band. I also stitched the button and loop on the cover to close the opening.

The pattern is series of Single Crochet stitch(SC) and Double Crochet stitch(DC) alternatively.

R1: Starting with chain 35, join at the initial chain to form the loop. Total 35 chains.

R2: Ch 1, *SC, DC*; repeat *-* throughout the row ending with SC and join at the ch 1. Total 35 stitches, 18 SC, 17 DC.

R3: Ch 1, *DC in previous SC, SC in previous DC*; repeat *-* throughout the row ending with DC and join at ch 1. Total 35 stitches, 18 DC, 17 SC.

Repeat R2 and R3 alternatively till you achieve the desired height.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: Change the yarn to white and continue R3 for 1 row. Total 35 SC.

R2: Chain 3, SC from 1st stitch from the previous row. Total 35 SC, 3 Chain.

R3: SC around including 3 SC in the chain. Total 38 SC.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Change to white colour, single crochet (SC) around. Total 35 SC.

Continue R1 for 4 rows and sew the end.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″
  • Wristlet Size = 9″-10″ with 60-70 chains.
  • Button Loop Size = 2.5″-3″ is obtained by chaining 20.

The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

Remember: do not overdo it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Quotidian Tote Bag Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Quotidian Tote Bag

Every year we spend thousands to replenish our wardrobe; throw away some of the old to embrace new. The newness instils excitement and freshness taking away the dullness and boredom.

It is a great therapy for boosting the morale and keeping things lively, be it the house or one’s life. However, this investment towards the change often ends up digging a deep hole into our pockets, making us wonder would be there a more affordable way to do this?

The answer is in the accessories. These pocket-friendly small trinkets can do magic if matched rightly. Look at the handbags such as. These have been one of the best ways to define the style statement.

For me a handbag is everything. A ladies handbag is always a mystery to men, of course, it goes without saying that unlike them, we never travel light. We have a wallet, mobile, keys, makeup kit, medicine kit, notebook, pen, a bottle, a small umbrella and the list never ends.

With similar thoughts, I decided to make an every day ( i.e. quotidian ) tote bag for my best buds (3+1). I wanted this bag to be funky yet subtle, so I used funky colours and contrasted them with a simple pattern and honed texture. Great to carry along in a mall for shopping, to the office, or even at a casual occasion like catching up a friend or going to beachside; just grab this tote bag and head towards your destination.

I played a little game with my buds, I had four colours in my mind. I attached these colours and assigned a number to each from 1-4. Each of them picked a number and voila that’s the colour they are flaunting now.

Process:

The process is very simple. I used cotton yarn to make this bag. Crochet stitch is a series of a Single-Crochet pattern made in a spiral pattern running around each other in a circle from bottom to top. The handles add up in a seamless form. The Edge is also made in a Single-Crochet series. The process is divided into 4 parts:

  1. Base
  2. Body
  3. Handles
  4. Edging

Base:-

R1: Starting with a magic circle, Ch 1, Single Crochet (SC) 6 times; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 6 SC.

R2: Ch 1, 2 Single Crochet (SC) in one SC; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 12 SC.

R3: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 18 SC.

R4: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 2 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 24 SC.

R5: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 3 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 30 SC.

R6: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 4 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 36 SC.

R7: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 5 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total  42 SC.

R8: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 6 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 48 SC.

R9: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 7 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 54 SC.

R10: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 8 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 60 SC.

R11 – R20: Repeat for another 10 rows in the same manner. Total 120 SC.

Remember: The diameter of the base should depend on the width of the Tote bag you are looking for. I aimed for 9″.

Body:-

R21 – R60: Single Crochet around. Total 120 SC.

Repeat the last row till the tote bag reaches to the desired length.

Handle:-

Handle Marks – Count 30 stitch put a marker. Use one marker for every 30th stitch. There will be 4 marks on the body of the bag.

R61: Ch1, Single Crochet (SC) 30 stitches. turn. Total 30 SC.

R62: Ch1, Single Crochet Together (SCTOG), SC 26 stitches, SCTOG. turn8. Total 28 SC.

R63: Ch1, SCTOG, SC 24 stitches, SCTOG. turn. Total 26 SC.

R64: SCTOG, SC 22 stitches, SCTOG. turn. Total 24 SC.

R65 – R72: Repeat decreasing the stitch count by 2 till you reach 6 SC.

R73: Ch 1, Single Crochet, turn. Total 6 SC.

R74 – R154: Repeat R73.

OR 6 Single Crochet for 80 rows.

R155: Ch 1, 2 SC in SC, SC 4, 2 SC in SC; turn. Total 8 SC.

R156: Ch1, 2 Sc in SC, SC 6, 2 SC in SC; turn. Total 10 SC.

R157 – R167: Repeat increasing the stitch count by 2 till you reach 30 SC.

R169: Straighten out the handle. Slip Stich with the body of the bag between 3rd and 4th markers. Cut and sew the stranding yarn.

Edging:-

R170: Join the yarn, Ch 1, SC from 2nd marker side of the handles to 3rd marker. Cut and sew the stranded yarns.

R171: Join the yarn, Ch 1, SC from 4th marker side of the handles to 1st marker. Cut and sew the stranded yarns.

Caution Section:-

  1. Take precaution while making the handles. The handle stretches as the weight of the bag increases. Unless you are using faux leather, suede, fabric or something else (which do not have much elasticity); the handle/s should be smaller.
  2. The overall bag usually expands because of the elasticity of the yarn; unless you provide a lining inside the bag.
  3. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn vary the diameter of the base.
  4. The crochet hook recommended vs the crochet hook used defines the design.
  5. The total number of stitches per row is different for SC, HDC, DC etc.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Diameter of the base: 9″
  • The height of the bag: 9″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can use a crochet chain, ribbon, resin strap, snap-button or even a zip for the pouch drawstring.
  • Pom-pom, tassels, charms, miniature idols, mini toys, amulets make a good match for the colour with the edging or the base colour.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.

Remember: do not overdo it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet This N That Sunglasses Cover Free Pattern for Female - kNot mY deSigns

This N That Sunglasses Cover

By now, your brain must have properly registered that we always go for the centre point in designing. Too many embellishments are overdone. Be it in fashion, interior decoration, art, designing etc. Keeping it simple and minimal is the modern mantra!

Bored with the same old plain black Bulky sunglasses cover, the customer asked me for a funky, colourful and bright cover. Something which was sturdy to hold the sunglasses and stylish to carry along. So, I chose a bright funky cotton yarn ombre and decided to follow a simple basic pattern. Voila! I achieved that.

Process:

The procedure to make this pouch is very simple. To give a closer stitch look, I have used a smaller crochet hook than what is generally recommended to make this sunglasses cover. The design is alternate Single Crochet Back Loop only (SCBLO) and Single Crochet Front Loop Only (SFLO).

R 1: Ch 11, Single Crochet (SC) in the 2nd ch from the hook, SC in each remaining ch to end; turn. (10 sts)
R 2 – 3: Ch 1, SC in each st across; turn. (10 sts)
R 4: Ch 1, SC in 10 sts across, SC 3 along the side, SC 10 across the foundation chain, SC 3 on the other side; join with a Sl st in first SC of the round, do not turn. (26 sts).

R 5: SCBLO, SCFLO around 26 stitches.  Continue this step until you reach the desired length of the cover.

R 6: Reverse Single Crochet/ Crab Stitch around to give that finishing touch to the edge.

You can create the edging with one round of SC only. It all depends on what kind of finishing look you prefer.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: Change the yarn to white and Chain 2; Double Crochet (DC) around; join at the beginning of the row.

R2: Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Double Crochet alternatively around till the brim is 1″.

  • in the last row add a chain 3 in the end and join at the beginning of the row.

R3: Finish off with Reverse single crochet stitch or crab stitch to give a fine edging; Single Crochet in the ch 3 space; join at the beginning.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Double crochet around with white yarn.

R2: Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Double Crochet alternatively around till the brim is 1″.

R3: Finish off with Reverse single crochet stitch or crab stitch to give a fine edging.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch. 

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook smaller than recommended one to give a tighter and closer stitch.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″

The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Contemporary Triangles Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch Free Pattern - kNot mY deSigns

Contemporary Triangles Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch

I stumbled upon the article Triangles in Design written by @larissameek. I agree with her completely. As per design, incorporating triangles in your art in the smart choice. The shape not only creates an attraction like the Pyramid of Giza or the Louvre Pyramid; they evoke modernism. “No matter how you look at a triangle, it points to something”, says Larissa. The edges focus your attention towards your art that makes it look contemporary.

I was looking forward to including triangles in my creations too. I achieved that while creating a crochet cell phone wristlet pouch.

Process:

I loved the Crochet iPhone Case by  Jeanette – LutterIdyl. The pattern is very simple. It contains single crochet stitch (SC) across the starting with chain 35. Total 35 SC.

I added a crocheted loop of 70 chains on one side of the mobile cover to form a wristlet band.  To close the opening, I stitched the press button inside the pouch. I didn’t go for the regular buttoned loop as it would have destroyed the aesthetic.

Triangle:-

upside down triangle is made in the last 8 rows.

Last Row 8: Start with 1 single crochet(SC) of the opponent colour(OC) and continue with the base colour(BC).

Last Row 7: 2 SC of OC and continue with BC.

Last Row 6: 3 SC of OC and continue with BC.

Last Row 5: 4 SC of OC, 4SC of BC, 1 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 4: 5 SC of OC, 3SC of BC, 2 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 3: 6 SC of OC, 2SC of BC, 3 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 2: 7 SC of OC, 1SC of BC, 4 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 1: 13SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: modify Last Row 2: 7 SC of OC, 1SC of BC, 4 SC of OC; continue with BC for- next 7 SC, ch 3, SC till the beginning of the row.

R2: modify Last Row 1: 13SC of OC; continue with BC for- next 7 SC, 3 SC on ch 3, SC till the beginning of the row.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Change to BC, single crochet (SC) around. Total 35 SC.

Continue R1 for 4 rows and sew the end.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch. 

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different techniques ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook smaller than recommended one to give a tighter and closer stitch.

Crochet Capri Backsided Mobile Cover Free Pattern with closed loop and wristlet - Knot My Designs

Capri Backsided Mobile Cover

Have you ever worn your top inside out by mistake and spent an entire day roaming out in that and to realize it much later in the day? oopsy! what now? You start to think should I change back to correct side or carry it, in the same way, assuming no one noticed. Well, when I face such scenario, I try to style it with a jacket and make sure I never take off my jacket.

But what if the similar incident happens while designing your product? I started making a mobile cover for a customer with enough spaces to carry meal coupons and cards along with a mobile phone and a buttoned loop to close the opening along with wristlet to hang it on the hand. While stitching one end of the cover, in order to hold the phone, I realized that I have sewed inside out. I liked the back side of the Single crochet stitch and decided to show it neatly and create a new design with good visuals.

Process:

The process is very simple. It is a series of Single Crochet stitch(SC) with changing yarns as per your choice. Sew and close one end on the correct side and turn the complete cover inside out!

I added a crocheted loop on one side of the mobile cover to tie wristlet band. Also, sewed button and loop on the cover, to close the opening.

Body:-

R1: start with ch 34, join to the 1st chain with Slip Stitch (SL ST).

R2: Ch 1, single crochet (SC) around. Do not join the with Sl ST, instead continue with next row. Total 34 SC.

R3: Single crochet around with cafe yarn. Total 34 SC.

Continue R3 till the pouch measures 3″. Change the yarn to blue colour, continue R3 till the pouch measure 3″.

R4: Change the yarn to blue colour, continue R3 till the pouch measure 3″.

Brim:-

R1: Change the yarn to white and continue R3 for 1 row. Total 34 SC.

R2: Chain 3, SC from 1st stitch from the previous row. Total 34 SC, 3 Chain.

R3: SC around including 3 SC in the chain. Total 37 SC.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook smaller than recommended one to give a tighter and closer stitch.

Winter / Fall Seasoned Crochet Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat

Ever confused while naming your product? I was. It took me 3-4 attempts to finally come up with the name – Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat.

At first, I decided to name it as Women’s Pixie hat. Then I renamed to Women’s Pixie Slouchy Hat because of the slouchy effect. Later, it was rechristened as Women’s Pixie Bonnet Hat but then, it is neither a pixie hat nor a bonnet hat. It is a combination of the two with a slouchy effect at the base.

Unlike pixie hat with the straight split at the base, I gave it a round base with a split in the end. It resembles more closely to a Slouchy Bonnet than a Slouchy Pixie. Thus the name.

Process:

I was looking for Pixie hat patterns and I stumbled upon Ganymede Hat by Sheila Toy Stromberg.  This was the exact pattern that I was visualizing in my head. A Pixie hat but without pointy end with bonnet split in the back. Her Ganymede Hat pattern helped me to understand the process. Her Facebook page is creative and welcoming to follow too.

The customer shared a specific colour and design of the pixie hat that she wanted. Thus, I followed the above pattern up to Row 17 and then created a different edging.

Since I used 6mm crochet hook, I added one more row of extension with a final count of 64 DC. 

Edging:-

R 18: Ch 3, *Puff Stitch¹, skip the next stitch, repeat from * till the end of the row. Complete the row with DC  on 3rd ch of the last row, turn.

R 19 – R 20: repeat R 18.

R 21: Finish the hat with one round Single Crochet (SC) around covering the base of the split.

[1 – Puff Stitch – Yarn over, insert the hook in the defined stitch, draw up a loop  (a total of three loops on the hook), yarn over and insert the hook in the same stitch and draw up a loop (a total of 5 loops on the hook). Yarn over and draw through first 4 loops on the hook, yarn over and draw through the last 3 loops on the hook.]

Finishing:-

Continue making ties for pixie hat and add tassels. The ties length is 5″, which I felt shorter than I anticipated. Thus I added tassels to give a more fuller look.

DIY Yarn Tassels is a great link to follow for first timers.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook larger than recommended one to give a free flowing and open stitch.
  4. Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the edge can be set.
  5. The positioning of the edging size along with the knowledge of the gauge will reduce the rework.

 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels or crab stitch edging to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Half Herringbone Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Half Herringbone Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch

It must sound crazy but have you ever fell in love with a design so much that you begin using it everywhere?

Well, I have never fallen for any crochet pattern more than the Herringbone stitch, especially, the Half Herringbone stitch. The day when I learned it, I wanted to make anything and everything, around me, using the Herringbone stitch. In that excitement, I made 2 cell phone pouches with loop and a side wristlet.

The pattern is best suitable for circular items like beanies, pouches, bags etc. When I started using the same stitch for open items like blanket or scarf, the flow of the texture didn’t come out that perfect as I was visualizing in my mind. I need to analyze and associate with different crochet stitch to give a finished look. Not a problem now as I’ll achieve that one day.

Process:

I learned the pattern from Moogly Blog – Herringbone Half Double Crochet. The written instruction explains the twist in Half double crochet stitch. The video is also there for more clarity if you aren’t able to catch the twist. Even after looking at the video I was able to get the twist.

As the pouch is created from to bottom to top, sew the 1st row by turning the cover inside out. Change back to right side and start with the edge. I added a crocheted loop on one side of the mobile cover to tie wristlet band. Also, stitched the button and loop on the cover, to close the opening.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: Change the yarn to white and continue R3 for 1 row. Total 35 SC.

R2: Chain 3, SC from 1st stitch from the previous row. Total 35 SC, 3 Chain.

R3: SC around including 3 SC in the chain. Total 38 SC.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Change to white color, single crochet (SC) around. Total 35 SC.

Continue R1 for 4 rows and sew the end.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″
  • Wristlet Size = 9″-10″ with 60-70 chains.
  • Button Loop Size = 2.5″-3″ is obtained by chaining 20.

The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
