Crochet Buff White Ribbed Beanie Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Buff White Ribbed Hat

Last week, I shared how I creatively turned my mistake into a new style beanie. The only downside of the experience was that I had to devote additional time to start the search again. But the upside is that I didn’t stop the work since the final product wasn’t for the exact age group.  It still made a good gift and I can happily gift to someone and so can you. 

Yes, mistakes do pull us down. Afterall, every creation takes a lot of time, energy, effort, love and passion. And a small and silly mistake in these makes the effort go in vain and just adds to the anxiety. So, whenever I start to feel so I just leave the work at that point and take a break. This break can continue for the rest of the day, but it definitely is healthy. 

Next morning, I get back to work with a fresh mind. If I get an idea, I start fresh especially when the delivery date is near, or I start looking for newer ideas online. Exploring the creative and talented world through the window of Pinterest gives me a fresh perspective and newer ideas on ways to think differently. Have you tried this? You should give a try…

I can say that unless the customer is specifically asking for a pattern, you can go as imaginative as you want. Who knows you might produce your best work!

Since my last beanie was a bottom-top approach, which gave me a wrong size. I didn’t take the risk to proceed with the similar approach again. I believe I am much comfortable with the top-bottom approach. Adding another row to increase the height is lesser risky than setting the base circumference. 

Process:

In this process, I followed the top-bottom approach using Single crochet (SC) and Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC). The pattern is exactly the same as Men’s Black Reversible Beanie

The yarn is completely different than the ones generally found in US Stores. I had to precautiously calculate and measure the hat circumference and size. Even as experienced crocheters we tend to miscalculate because we are comfortable with the certain thickness of the yarn. 

I have added 2 rows of single crochet stitch (SC) at the end followed by Reverse Single Crochet (RSC) to give a soft nudge.

I added a pom-pom at the top to pop up the hat.

Caution Section:-

  1. The yarn is 4 ply yarn. Thus instead of going with 72 counts (which is general total counts for adults female), I measured and checked and did 84 count stitch. 
  2. So, measure again and calculate again, if you are completely changing your comfort zone. I went from worsted weight (10ply) to sport (4ply) yarn.
  3. Almost a complete 50 gm yarn was consumed for pompom. Plan and buy your yarn accordingly. You might want to increase the count by 1 for pom-pom.
  4. Furthermore, the elasticity of the yarn impacts the sizing and count of stitches. If you are beginner then you might prefer checking after every 2 rows to see if the size is fitting or not.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

Circumference: 22″-23″

Height: 9″

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 to give a different touch.

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

Crochet Sincerely Ribbed Adult Beanie Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Sincerely Ribbed Adult Beanie

Can you think of a flower whose smell and colour both are favourite to everyone? I have one in my mind. Lavender. It is loved by everyone and has its own charm, which is attractive yet very pleasing.

Do you love Lavender? I do too. This week, I am bringing another beanie pattern. This can be made for both kids and adults (especially men). Here, I have tried to bring that magnetism with mildness through this design. It is simple but appealing. I hope you are liking the new patterns that I am presenting these days.  

Process:

The process involves working sidewise rather than in rounds. You make a rectangle of 9″x22″ and join them. The pattern includes Slip Stitch in back loop (BLOSLST), Single Crochet Stitch (SC) and Single Crochet in Back Loop (BLOSC). If neatly done, this can be also be used as a reversible beanie. 

Pattern:-

R1: Start with Ch 70 +1. 

The number can change based on the target audience. For a teen, it can be reduced to Ch 60; for a big size Ch 80, depending on the final circumference. 

R2:  From 2nd ch, SC in every chain and turn. Total 70 counts.

R3: Ch1, BLOSLST in every SC loosely and turn. Total 70 counts.

R4: Ch 1, BLOSC 70 times and turn. Total 70 counts. 

R5-R6: Repeat R3-R4.

R7: Ch1, BLOSC 70 times and turn.  

R8-R14: Ch1, SC in every stitch across and turn.

R15: Ch1, BLOSLST in every stitch and turn.

R16-R18: Ch1, BLOSC across and turn,

R19- R26: Ch1, SC across and turn.

Repeat 15- 26 till you get 9″ in height.

Join at sides and sew at the top. 

Caution Section:-

  1. The pattern is pretty easy to follow. You need to make sure the count does not increase or decrease every row.
  2. The starting chain should be equivalent to the circumference of the head size. For that, ch and join the chain in around and measure the circumference. 
  3. You can also work a couple rows of SC and then measure the length to get the idea.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

Length: 9″

Circumference: 22″

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • This is a Unisex beanie. So in case you are using it as a female 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 to give a different touch.
  • For men, keep it simple. The colour selection should catch the eye.

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

Simple Mom-Daughter Beanie

Happy Mother’s Day!!!

Every relationship is celebrated and cherished specifically to remind us about the importance they hold in our lives.

With the busy lifestyle and with the rush to make more money to sustain a living, we sometimes take these relationships for granted. We forget to express the love and care. 

Wishing explicitly, saying “I Love You, Mom”, matters more than buying gifts or taking on tours. So, specific weekends are devoted to spending time with your family showering all our love and gratitude.

For me, I do not believe in celebrating days like Woman’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Sibling’s Day, Valentine’s Day etc. I don’t need a special day to show my love to my family or my loved ones. The special privileges on Woman’s Day, don’t excite me either, rather they make me realise that I am not equal to men and therefore the special care and attention.

Keeping these personal thoughts aside, I do wish every Mom a Happy Mother’s Day and hope you’all have a great weekend ahead.

With Mother’s Day celebration knocking at the door, get your hooks ready and make this simple beanie combo. The simplicity of the design will be the last minute gift you can make for your mom.

The value of handmade gifts is much more powerful than any factory-made gadget or device. It shows that we have not only invested money but love and time to make something for you, MOM!

Process:

The pattern is very simple. The top-bottom approach uses Single Crochet stitch (SC) around in every row. The only difference between the mom and daughter beanies are adjusting the diameters and the height of the beanie. That is why the pattern name is Simple Mom-Daughter Beanie.

For mom, you can increase to 7″-7.5″ diameter and 6″-6.5″ for the daughter.  For the base, I started with SC 10 and increased by 10 at every row till I get the desired diameter. Once that is achieved, I continued the total count from the last row for 5″-6″. This increases the height to 7″ for daughter and 7.5″ for mom. 

For brim, I added 4 rows of taupe colour continuing the same count and single crochet around. This increased the overall height of the beanie to 1″ more respectively.

Caution Section:-

  1. When working on beanies or hat from top to bottom, the crown sizes matters based on the diameters. 
  2. When you start increasing every row evenly, the work should lay flat without any grooves or bumps. You should measure the diameter of the circle created not around the circle. 
  3. For child (3-10), the diameter of the crown should be 6″-6.5″. For an adult female, the diameter is 7″- 7.5″. 
  4. Single crochet gives a tighter snug. thus depending on the elasticity of the yarn you can use the recommended hook or increase the hook size. The beanie should be stretchable when made. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Circumference for daughter: 18″-19″
  • Height for daughter: 8″
  • Circumference for mom: 22″-23″
  • Height for mom: 8.5″

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 to give a different touch.

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

Crochet Section Ribbed Adult Beanie Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Section Ribbed Adult Beanie

Have you visited Yellowstone National Park? I haven’t, it is one of the spots left in my to do travel list. But I have seen the pictures and I am in awe of the pristine beauty of nature. Looking at Grand Prismatic Spring, I felt an urge to capture that image somewhere in my crochet creations.

I couldn’t bring out everything of that beauty to present in my works, so I decided to look for the yarn that will give me a starting point for the design. 

The Lion Brand’s Heartland Yarn was closest to my expectation and had just the right shade I wanted. A colour paints just the right effect of the Yellowstone. No wonder why the yam manufacturer also named it Yellowstone as it captures that tint. It inspired me to make Yellowstone Microbial Mats as a fashion accessory.

It was indeed ‘love after first project’. The appreciation for the colour and material grew and as the next challenge, I wanted to enhance its beauty further. So what shall be the right product, A beanie? A warmer? A shrug? I decided to go with a beanie with but I was clueless about the pattern that would make my vision a reality. After numerous hits and trials, I went with a Ribbed beanie design. 

I call it Section Ribbed to suggest that part of the beanie (the body) is ribbed.

Process:

The process of creating this pattern is very simple; using Top-bottom approach. I am defining the base first and continuing downwards in rounds. The pattern is using Double Crochet Stitch (DC), Front Post Double Crochet Stitch (FPDC), Single Crochet (SC) and Slip Stitch (SLST).

Pattern:-

BASE:

Starting with a Magic Circle, Ch 2, 12 DC; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 12.

R1: Ch 2, 2DC in each DC; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 24.

R2: Ch 2, * DC in DC, 2DC in next DC*; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 36.

R3: Ch 2, DC in 2 DC, 2 DC in next DC; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 48.

R4: Ch 2, DC in 3 DC, 2 DC in next DC; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 60.

Note: For a child size beanie, you can stop at R4 and continue with the Body. 

R5: Ch 2, DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in next DC; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 72.

Note: At this level, the diameter of the base should be 6″-6 1/4″ for an adult beanie. To make a large size head, you can increase by 12 in next row and then start with the body.

BODY:

R1: Ch 2, FPDC on DC, SC in next DC; repeat till the end; join at the 1st FPDC with SLST. Total 72.

Repeat R1 to get the desired length. 

Note: For a tighter edge, add a row of SC.

Caution Section:-

  1. To create the slouch, increase the height of the beanie to more than 10″ but do not exceed 13″-14″.
  2. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn may affect the diameter of the base.
  3. The crochet hook recommended vs the crochet hook used defines the design.
  4. The diameter of the base should be 6″-6 1/4″ for an adult beanie. To make a large size head, you can increase by 12 in next row and then start with the body.
  5. Concentrate on the base diameter of the beanie and increase or decrease the rows. Generally, for any adult beanie 60-84, DC is suitable. 72 count is ideal for medium head size for men and medium to large head size for women.
  6. Keep measuring the circumference and the height to avoid frogging or rework.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 9″
  • Circumference: 22.5″

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

[Note: The height of the hat is measured from the closed tip to the bottom when the hat is laid flat. ]

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • This is a Unisex beanie. So in case you are using it as a female 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 to give a different touch.
  • For men, keep it simple. The colour selection should catch the eye.

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

Crochet Rich Electric Blue Beanie Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Rich Electric Blue Beanie

Just like Knobbly Textured Adult Beanie, I taking another dig at non-conventional contemporary style beanie pattern. This Rich Electric Blue Beanie will find many admirers in the feminine couture, however I will be extremely pleased and surprised if I get any orders from men for this pattern. 

The focus here is the same as the previous pattern, which is to bring out a new pattern that can go very well with both; male and female. With the uniqueness of the design, I am targeting a new entrée in the modern look that I believe would redefine the Unisex styling.

I hope that you all like the pattern. I aim to bring the best of two worlds; simplicity in creation and exquisiteness in the overall presentation.

Process:

Th process of creating this pattern is very simple. Using Top-Bottom approach, I am defining the base and continuing to the bottom in rounds. The entire beanie is made using Double Crochet Stitch (DC). The horizontal lines are created by working on the 3rd loop of DC (L3DC), the same way as we work on the 3rd loop on Half-Double Crochet.

Pattern:-

Body:

Starting with a Magic Circle, Ch 2, 12 DC; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 12.

R1: Ch 2, 2DC in each DC; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 24.

R2: Ch 2, * DC in DC, 2DC in next DC*; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 36.

R3: Ch 2, DC in 2 DC, 2 DC in next DC; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 48.

R4: Ch 2, DC in 3 DC, 2 DC in next DC; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 60.

Note: For a child size beanie, you can stop at R4 and continue with the Body. 

R5: Ch 2, DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in next DC; repeat ; join at the 1st DC with SLST. Total 72.

Note: At this level, the diameter of the base should be 6″-6 1/4″ for an adult beanie. To make a large size head, you can increase by 12 in next row and then start with the body.

Body:

R1: Ch 2, *L3DC on DC across; join at the 1st L3DC with SLST. Total 72.

R2-R4: Repeat R1 for 3 rows.

R6: Ch 2, DC on each L3DC across; join at the 1st DC with SLST.Total 72.

R7: Repeat R6.

Repeat R1 to R7 2 times for the final height of the beanie.

Note: For a tighter edge, add a row of SC.

The size reaches around 9″-10″. Cut the yarn and sew the end.

Caution Section:-

  1. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn may affect the diameter of the base.
  2. The crochet hook recommended vs the crochet hook used defines the design.
  3. You can increase or decrease the count to get the head size. 72 count is ideal for medium head size for men and medium to large head size for women.
  4. Concentrate on the base diameter of the beanie and increase or decrease the rows. Generally, for any adult beanie 60-84, DC is suitable.
  5. Keep measuring the circumference and the height to avoid frogging or rework.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 9″
  • Circumference: 22.5″

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

[Note: The height of the hat is measured from the closed tip to the bottom when the hat is laid flat. ]

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • This is a Unisex beanie. So in case you are using it as a female 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 to give a different touch.
  • For men, keep it simple. The colour selection should catch the eye.

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

Crochet Skipped Loop Adult Beanie Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Skipped Loop Adult Beanie

With so many patterns floating around over the Internet, it becomes really challenging to create something different. To grab that attention from the other co-crocheters, your pattern should be catchy. Knowing this, I can develop a complicated design pattern – if I really dig deep, yet I am always inclined to create easy formations from the existing stitches. 

Complex and intricate work definitely attracts buyers but if I want to bring more creators in the world of crafts and hobbies then I need to focus on easy methods and styles. To this end, I am coming up with series of easy patterns in the coming months. 

Here, I am presenting one of these easy designs, which I felt will bring out the WOW factor of the ombre or multi-colour yarn. I hope it looks as attractive to you as it looks to me.

Process:

The procedure involves Double Crochet(DC) stitches. But instead of using regular DC, we will be focusing on Back Loop Double Crochet (BLODC) and Double Crochet(DC) alternatively. Since we are skipping Front Loop of DC, it is named as Skipped Loop.

Pattern:-

R1: Starting with a magic circle, Ch 2, 10 DC; join with Slip Stitch (SL ST) in the 1st DC. Total 10 DC.

R2: Ch 2, 2DC in each DC; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 20 DC.

R3: Ch 2, BLODC, 2DC; repeat in each DC; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 30 DC. 

R4: Ch 2, BLODC, 2DC, BLODC, DC, BLODC, 2DC; repeat to the end; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 40 DC.

R5: Ch 2, BLODC, 2DC, BLODC, DC; repeat to the end; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 50 DC.

R6: Ch 2, BLODC, DC, BLODC, 2DC, BLODC, DC, BLODC, 2DC, BLODC, DC; repeat to the end; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 60 DC.

Note: You can stop here for a child size beanie and repeat R8 to get the desired length.

R7: Ch 2, BLODC, 2DC, BLODC, DC, BLODC, DC; repeat to the end; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 70 DC.

R8: Ch 2, * BLODC, DC*; repeat to the end; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 70 DC.

Repeat R8 till you get the desired length. 

Here, I continued for 8 rows to get the 8.5″ height of the hat. 

In the end, I added an edge using Reverse Single Crochet stitch to create a little tighter stitch to set perfectly.

Caution Section:-

  1. Make sure every consecutive/alternative stitch is opposite of the previous one.
  2. Every row starts with BLODC and DC.
  3. To increase the circumference you can add another row or you can increase the initial count from 10DC to 12 DC.
  4. Similarly, to decrease the circumference you can stop at the previous row or you can decrease the initial count from 10DC to 8 DC.
  5. Since the circumference of the front head is smaller than the crown, the last row is made using a tight stitch or one size smaller crochet hook.  This will give a close snug at the brim of the beanie for a proper fit.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Circumference: 20″
  • Height: 8.5″

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 to give a different touch.

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

Crochet Tangerine Punch Travel Pouch Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Tangerine Punch Zipped Pouch

Brownfield and Greenfield; these words are often used in business. But they very much apply to my work as well. Brownfield is working on an existing project/site, while Greenfield is a new project or site. In my world of crochet, a brownfield is continuing a theme or a pattern, or even improvising on something existing, whereas any new project is Greenfield for me.

What do you think is the trickiest work – starting a new pattern or continuing a theme? For me, the latter is more difficult than the former. While working on a new pattern for a new customer I have to just take care of his/her ideas (which is not so easy as it sounds) and present them the final item (which they have loved till date, TOUCHWOOD!!)

But when an existing customer comes back with more demands; it becomes challenging for me. I have to give something new and exciting. The visualization becomes more arduous when I have to maintain the same theme but still provide a unique punch. The faced the same challenge while creating this Tangerine Punch Zipped Pouch. I have to not only make it funky and attractive but also ensure that it blends together. Is it confusing?

Well, let me share the pictures and hopefully, it will be clearer. After making a mobile cover with blue and coffee brown tint, I made a multi-colour sunglasses cover to go with it.

When the need for a Travel Pouch or makeup kit pouch arose, I confidently promised to make something peppy but still combine them with previous items.

Now the engine started. With so many colour choices around, I played and tried a dozen combinations and patterns. Finally, I arrived at below selection. I was overjoyed with this achievement. But here comes the hiccup. The calculation went wrong! Now I am on the verge of completing this project and the yarn is over and the size is smaller!!!

Tangerine Punch Zipped Pouch in Progress - Knot My Designs

At this juncture, I am contemplating to undo the pouch and start from scratch again but at the same time, I do want to let my hard work go in vain. So I am experimenting again with an extension. Hopefully, my customer will love it the way she has loved all my other products.

Process:

The pattern is very simple (I know I always say this, but believe me once you get hold of the basic stitches of crochet, it is really simple). The pouch is a combination of Single Crochet (SC), Center Single Crochet (CSC), Back Loop Single Crochet (BLOSC) and SC-2-Together (SC2TOG) stitches.

Pattern:-

Colour Selection – Blue Yarn(BC) for base or side circles. Multi-colour yarn (MC), tangerine (TC) and yellow(YC) for the body.

Base:-

Starting with a Magic Circle and using BC, Ch 1, 6 SC; join at the beginning SC with a Slip Stitch (SLST). Total 6 SC.

Increase every row by 6 till you reach a total of 54 SC.

To know how to increase every row, click  Grandpa Beanie.

End Row: Back-loop SC (BLOSC) in every SC; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 54 BLOSC.

Body:-

1: Select MC and start working on CSC around;  join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 54 CSC. Check out the video from Moogly to get the stitch.

2: Continue Row 1 for another round. Total 54 CSC.

3: Using MC, start another round of CSC. Do not join the ends. turn and Ch 1. Total 54 CSC.

4: Continue Row 3 for another 5 rows.

5: Switch to TC and continue Row 3 for another 9 rows.

6: Switch to YC and Continue row 3 for another 9 rows.

7: Switch to TC again and continue row 3 for another 9 rows.

8: Switch to MC back and continue row 3 for another 5 rows.

9: Repeat row 3; join at the beginning CSC with SLST.

10: Ch 1, Repeat row 9. Total 54 CSC.

11: Change to BC; Ch 1, start working on SC in every CSC; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 54 SC.

12: working on Back Loop, Ch 1, continue SC in every SC; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 54 SC.

Base:-

13: decrease the count now.  Ch 1, SC in 7 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 48 SC.

14: Ch 1, SC in 6 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 42 SC.

15: Ch 1, SC in 5 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 36 SC.

16: Ch 1, SC in 4 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 30 SC.

17: Ch 1, SC in 3 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 24 SC.

18: Ch 1, SC in 2 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 12 SC.

19: Ch 1, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 6 SC. Sew the end and pull tightly to close.

Buy the zip and revert the inside out and sew the zip. Change back to right side.

Caution Section:-

  1. CSC will become tighter to work on as we are working with cotton yarn. The elasticity of the cotton yarn is nearly zero.
  2. To make a closed loop, a smaller hook can work better than the recommended one. For me, I went with the suggested hook because working on the next row was getting tighter.
  3. To measure the gauge up to 1″, count the number of rows. Here, it took 6 rows to make an inch.
  4. As I miscalculate the gauge, I had to buy another yarn and include in the product. But it is always important to count your gauge to avoid such blunders.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 9″
  • Base circumference: 5″

Optional Alterations:-

  • Add different charms on the zip. I have made a mini ball with the base colour and added in the zip puller.  Free pattern to make the mini ball.
  • Choose different colour combinations for the pouch.
  • You can add tassels or pompom on the zip puller. Link to create pom-pom / DIY-Tassels.
  • You can attach a plain key-ring too.
  • The size of the pouch can increase or decrease. Focus on the base count and make the item your own.
  • Insert a lining to avoid the small items falling out. Since the pattern is close-knit stitch and the purpose of the pouch does not deal with any mini item. I haven’t added any liner.

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

Crochet This N That Zipped Pouch Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

This N That Zipped Pouch

I love making baby blankets. It was awesome and overwhelming to see so much demand and love for custom graphics baby blankets. Thank you all for loving the idea. If you are wondering what I am talking about then please click  Pixel Graph Theme.

After making four blankets in a row, I needed a break; a good long break from blankets. That drove me towards smaller single-day projects. I love making pixel art and using those designs in my blankets. But the blankets are the time-taking affair and it takes really good effort and a lot of perseverance before you could taste success. This gets daunting at times. Therefore, I decided to switch over to smaller projects in between to refresh myself for the bigger task.

I worked on designing a zipped pouch to carry it around as my daily travel kit. My old pouch is getting stuffed and I was thinking to make a bigger size to accommodate my entire first-aid and makeup kit.

You might have come across This N That Sunglasses Cover. If not, then you can visit the link given. With the same idea in mind, I made this zipped pouch and named it as This N That Zipped Pouch.

Process:

The pattern is very simple (I know I always say that but believe me once you get hold of the basic stitches of crochet, it is simple). The pouch is a combination of Single Crochet (SC),  Front Loop Single Crochet (FLOSC), Back Loop Single Crochet (BLOSC) and SC-2-Together (SC2TOG) stitches.

Pattern:-

Colour Selection – Tangerine(BC) for base or side circles. Multi-colour yarn (MC) for the body and the zipper charm.

Base:-

Starting with a Magic Circle and using BC, Ch 1, 6 SC; join at the beginning SC with a Slip Stitch (SLST). Total 6 SC.

Increase every row by 6 till you reach a total of 54 SC.

To know how to increase every row, click  Grandpa Beanie.

End Row: Back-loop SC (BLOSC) in every SC; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 54 BLOSC.

Body:-

1: Select MC and start with SC; BLOSC, FLOSC; repeat till the last 2nd stitch; Sc in the last SC;  join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 54 counts.

2: Continue Row 1 for another round. Total 54 counts.

3: Using MC, start another round of Row 1. Do not join the ends. turn and Ch 1. Total 54 counts.

4: Continue Row 3 for another 30 rows or till you get the desired length.

5: Repeat row 3; join at the beginning SC with SLST.

10: Ch 1, Repeat row 5. Total 54 counts.

11: working on Back Loop, use BC and Ch 1, continue SC in every SC; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 54 SC.

Base:-

13: decrease the count now.  Ch 1, SC in 7 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 48 SC.

14: Ch 1, SC in 6 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 42 SC.

15: Ch 1, SC in 5 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 36 SC.

16: Ch 1, SC in 4 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 30 SC.

17: Ch 1, SC in 3 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 24 SC.

18: Ch 1, SC in 2 SC, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 12 SC.

19: Ch 1, SC2TOG next 2 SC; repeat ; join at the beginning SC with SLST. Total 6 SC. Sew the end and pull tightly to close.

Buy the zip and revert the inside out and sew the zip. Change back to right side.

Caution Section:-

  1. SC will become tighter to work on as we are working with cotton yarn. The elasticity of the cotton yarn is nearly zero.
  2. To make a closed loop, a smaller hook than the recommended one can work. For me, I went with the suggested hook because working on the next row was getting tighter.
  3. To measure the gauge up to 1″, count the number of rows. Here, it took 4 rows to make an inch.
  4. I used the whole ball to get the size. It is always important to count your gauge to avoid any mishap.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

Length: 8″

Base circumference: 4″

Optional Alterations:-

  • Add different charms on the zip. I have made a mini ball with the base colour and added to the zip puller.  Free pattern to make the mini ball.
  • Choose different colour combinations for the pouch.
  • You can add tassels or pompom on the zip puller. Link to create pom-pom / DIY-Tassels.

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 a 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 into 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!!

Style Aisle:

  • Hang inside/outside your purse as a go-to pouch for mobile and cards.
  • Add a keychain to the wristlet hole to add your keys along with phone and cards.
  • Use long sling instead of wristlet to carry as a compact pouch on the go OR simply treat as a cell phone case without any handles.
  • Choose the yarn colour based on the palette in your wardrobe. Experiment and enjoy the beautiful colours.
  • Go creative with the button choice.

Materials:

  1. Yarn: Lily Sweet N Cream – Sea BreezeLily Sweet N Cream – Soft EcruLily Sweet N Cream – Tangerine
    • Note: you can play around with different branded yarns as far as they give the synchronous flow of the pattern using a constant crochet hook.
    • You can either go for the yarns with the same recommended crochet hook OR decide the yarn and change the crochet hooks along with the tightness on the crochet stitches as you proceed with the pattern.
    • You can change the pattern to get the continuous flow.
  2. Crochet Hook: 5 mm
  3. Needles
  4. Scissors
  5. Measuring Tape
  6. Stitch Marker: My stitch markers are the mini safety pins we get from clothing tags.
