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 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.

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.

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.

 

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 accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Oblong Shell Stash Basket for Yarn - Knot My Designs

Oblong Shell Stash Basket

Increasing office space, ordering more raw materials etc. indicates growing business. Similarly, the need of another stash basket hinted at the growth of my work as I started collecting more and more yarn.

I already have a big Laundry basket full of wool. But it wasn’t enough to manage the stoke pile that was ending up lying around everywhere in the house. I do not own a separate crafts room in my current house, so I had to push myself to hold the current project to first make space and create another Stash Basket for myself.

I already have created a Stash Basket of Yarn. But I was not planning to create the same pattern again. I would take the blame that I do not like to replicate my work, rather add variety, unless ordered, to make the same thing. This always becomes helpful too!

Here, comes another pattern in the list of baskets for yarn. Every product is different and unique, so when you think storage and style and comfort, think about Oblong Shell Stash Basket from Knot My Designs.

Process:

I collected all left over yarns having the same crochet hook recommendation and then started working on constructing a new design. The procedure contains 2 parts: Base and Body

Base:-

At the base, I used all the leftover yarns to create a circular mat of 120sc (i.e. Single crochet stitch). Starting from 6sc and increasing 6 sc in every round up to 120sc. The picture shows various yarns I have used and completed.

Tip: Join all the left over yarns to create a big ball using Russian Join” method. This is the flawless and easy way to provide a seamless continuation of the yarn.

Body:-

There has been a lot of attempts in getting this final look.

Attempt 1: Continuing with Single crochet. This was giving me closed basket look which I wasn’t looking for at all.

Attempt 2: Following the same approach of the previous Stash Basket, I started with Double Crochet (DC). Instead of one SC and 5 ch, I worked on 3 DC and 5 Ch for one row. Then SC around next row and DC in the next and SC again in the next row. This completely distracted the synchronous flow from SC Base to DC Body.

Attempt 3: Continued SC up to 5 rows and then start using DC stitch. This was way too awkward and indescribable to me.

Attempt 4: I started browsing crochet stitches pattern from The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs. I decided to make Page139 – Shells- overall Patterns. SUCCESS!!! There is slight modification as this is going in circles with no turn at the end of each row.

Shell Overall Pattern:

R1: DC, *ch5, skip next 5ch, dc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * ending with DC. SS to join.

R2: Ch 3 (count as DC), *9 DC in each ch-5 space, skip 3 DC; repeat from * ending with DC. SS join.

R3: Ch 5, Skip 4DC, DC in each next 3 DC, *ch 5, skip next 6 DC, DC in each of next 3 DC; repeat from * ending with 4 sts, ch 2, skip next 3 DC, DC in the 3rd ch of the previous round.

R4: Ch 3 (counts as DC), 4 DC in next ch-2 space, *9 DC in each ch-5 space, skip 3 DC; repeat from * ending with 4 DC in ch-2 space, DC in the 3rd ch of the previous round.

Repeat R3-R4 till you get the desired height of the basket. I have used 3 different yarns and changed them after 6 rows.

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 smooth and open stitch.

 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 14″
  • Diameter: 12″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement. This bag expands further 4-5″ for wool to insert properly.
  • You can insert a liner inside the basket if you are keeping small items, to avoid falling off.
  • You can add pom-pom, tassels, charms, miniature idols, mini toys, amulets etc matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • 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 over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

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!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet White Snow Slippers/Socks Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

White Snow Slippers/Socks

“Happy Feet”,”The Chronicles of Narnia”, “Frozen”; pick any movie and you will realize the beauty of snow in these movies. Snowflakes, snow crystals, graupel, ice pellets etc whichever is the form of the frozen crystallized water; they are stupendous. The magnificent glaciers, the majestic view carries us away.

As spectacular or glorious as it looks; snowfall gets tough for the survival when this freezing weather continues for months. You are stuck in your own house doing nothing and waiting for skies to get clearer.

But we humans are a creative bunch, who don’t just stay hibernated in our shelter but find ways to enjoy the weather like making snow angels and snowman, skiing, sledging, making footprints, having a snowball fight, building a snow fort etc.

It is a good testimony to show that humans can face any challenge that comes in their way and live fully.

While I enjoyed playing out in the snow, making snowballs, it inspired me to make a white coloured Slippers/Socks for home.

Process:

The pattern is simple. I started with single crochet(SC) as Roller Slippers. Instead of continuing the process, I switched to Double crochet(DC) stitch for completing with mid to heel.

The pattern contains 3 parts:

  1. Foot
  2. Heel
  3. Leg

Foot:-

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 SC in SC, join at the beginning with SL ST. Total 12 SC.

R3: Ch 1, *2 SC in SC, SC in SC*; repeat *-* join at the beginning with SL ST. Total 18 SC.

R4 – R6: Ch1, 1 SC in each SC. Total 18 SC.

R7: Ch 1, *2 SC in SC, SC in 2 SC*; repeat *-* join at the beginning with SL ST. Total 24 SC.

R8: Ch1, 1 SC in each SC. Total 24 SC.

Repeat R8 until you gain 5.5″. Do not cut the yarn. Proceed towards heel section.

Heel:-

R1: Ch1, 1 DC in each SC.Do not join to the beginning but turn. Total 24 DC.

R2: Ch1, 1 DC in each DC, turn. Total 24 DC.

Repeat R2 until you have achieved 11″.

Lay flat. One side will be the foot. Join the other side together at the back with SC. Cut and sew the stranding yarn. Total 12 SC.

Leg:-

For the final edging, I did 1 row of SC and 1 row of DC with white yarn. Last 1 row of SC with pink- purple mixed yarn.

Decorations:-

I added a different colour to give a pop. Last 1 row of SC with pink- purple mixed yarn. Created 2 Simple Flowers from Little Abbee Patterns.

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Blue Backpost Slouch Beanie Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Blue BackPost Slouch Beanie

In the previous blog posts, I have been talking about gender-based fashion – feminine, masculine and unisex. But fashion is not only about “Shrink and Pink”, “Cool Blue Men”, Confused Identity Unisex, it is so much more. Fashion is change. As change is the only inevitable constant, same is with the fashion. It survives, breaths and brings joy when it challenges thoughts, outbreaks the defined set patterns and innovates new style.

So what is Fashion for you?

“To some, fashion is an art form. To others, it is almost like a religion. For most people, though, fashion is a method of utilising clothing, accessories, and grooming to show or hide something about yourself. Fashion can be an extension of your personality, allowing you to introduce parts of your personality to the world without saying a word. Conversely, the way you dress can also conceal parts of your personality or allow you to play a role: Clothing can be a costume, a uniform or a proclamation of independence. In 2016, fashion is whatever you want it to be. ” ( as described in about style).

Following the mantra of defining oneself through fashion, I selected a pattern, which will give a casual yet bold look to the customer who is both mellow and bold in nature.

Process:

The process is series of Double Crochet Stitch (DC) and Back Post Double Crochet stitch (BPDC). The beanie can be divided into 2 parts -> base and body.

Base:-

Start with a magic circle, ch2 and make 12 DC. Continue increasing by 12 for 6-7 rows and join at ch 2 of every row. To give a more slouchy look I made 84 DC in the last row of the base.

Remember: it should depend on the yarn thickness and recommended crochet hook. 

Body:-

1: ch 2, BPDC on 84DC each, join in the 1st BPDC.

2: ch 2, DC on each 84 BPDC. join in the 1st DC.

repeat 1 and 2 till you get the desired length. You can end the brim/edge with one row of Single Crochet or Slip stitch.

Measurement: circumference = 22″ , height = 10″.

Caution Section:-

  • FPDC and BPDC required a bigger crochet hook or loose stitching technique to get a flowy basketweave pattern.
  • Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one or you can loosely stitch FPDC and BPDC.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 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 to give a different touch.

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

Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt Free Pattern with Peppermint Candy Style - Knot My Designs

Christmas Treeskirt

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
(Big, fat Santa’s on his way)…

Christmas Carols, Christmas decorations, Christmas is on the way!

It’s Christmas! Every mall, every store, every home looks beautiful decorated with Poinsettia, candles, lights, stockings, gift-wrapped items, wreaths made with pinecones and lots of other ornaments. But any decoration is incomplete without a Christmas tree!

History (wiki) says that according to the Encyclopædia Britannica, “The use of evergreen trees, wreaths, and garlands to symbolise eternal life was a custom of the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, and Hebrews. Tree worship was common among the pagan Europeans and survived their conversion to Christianity in the Scandinavian customs of decorating the house and barn with evergreens at the New Year to scare away the devil and of setting up a tree for the birds during Christmastime.”

Another folk version defined Christmas tree as “Tree of Paradise in remembrance of the birth of Adam and Eve; where the tree with apples is now replaced with the red shiny baubles.”

In modern world, we decorate them with bells, candy canes, snow globes, lights, garlands, ribbons, tinsels, golden, silver and other different colored baubles; the tree skirt covers the tree stand;  snowman or reindeer shaped ornaments are hanged; and a star at the tree top is added to complete the decoration.

Process:

When my customer was decorating her Christmas tree, she approached me for Christmas tree skirt for her tree. After gathering the details about the decoration theme, I decided to make a peppermint candy style tree skirt with nude and red yarn. I followed the Redheart – Peppermint Candy Throw and Pillow pattern.

But it was difficult to get the initial startup. So, I used SmoothFoxLover – Christmas Tree Skirt to get the start.

My tree skirt dimension was supposed to be 50″ in diameter. I worked for 6 rows as mentioned in the pattern. Then instead of switching yarn at alternate rows, I followed the Redheart – Peppermint Candy Throw and Pillow procedure to continue further. I kept on increasing counts till the skirt diameter was 50″.

Pattern:-

The design is evolved from bits and pieces of 2 different patterns. It can be divided into sections for better understanding.

  1. Initial Shell stitch line.
  2. Expansion of the Open Base.
  3. Peppermint Style Body

Initial Shell Stitch line:-

R1: With Bone Color (Base Color- BC). Chain 5.

R2: Double Crochet (DC) in the 4th chain from the hook, DC in the 5th chain in the hook. (A shell is created) Do not cut the yarn; do not turn.

R3: Chain 5, DC in the 4th and 5th ch as in R2.

Repeat R3 or keep adding shells to the line 16 more times. Do not cut the yarn.  Total 18 shells, 36 DC, 18 ch-3 space.

Expansion of the Open Base:-

R1: Join Autumn Red (Contrast Color-CC) on the right side (RS); (Ch 2, DC, Ch 2, 2DC) in the 1st ch-3 space. Make [V stitch]¹ on every ch-3 space. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 72 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

R2: Continue with CC on the wrong side (WS); Slip Stitch on 1st DC. Ch 3, [V stitch]¹ in the 1st ch-2 space, DC in DC, *Skip 2 stitches, DC in next stitch, [V stitch]¹ in ch-2 space, DC in DC*; repeat *-* till the end. Skip the last stitch. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 108 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

R3: RS: Slip Stitch on 1st DC. Ch 3, DC in next DC, [V stitch]¹ in the 1st ch-2 space, DC in 2 DC, *Skip 2 stitches, DC in 2 DC, [V stitch]¹ in ch-2 space, DC in 2 DC*; repeat *-* till the end. Skip the last stitch. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 144 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

Peppermint Style Body:-

R1: using Base color (carrying CC in the back), Ch 2, DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 space, DC in 4 DC; *with CC in front and BC in back (DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 sp, DC in 4 DC), with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 sp, DC in 4 DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 10 DC.Turn. Total 180 DC. 90 BC- DC, 90 CC-DC.

R2: Using CC in front and BC in back; Ch 2, DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC; *with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC), with CC in front and BC in back (DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 11 DC.Turn. Total 198 DC. 99 BC- DC, 99 CC-DC.

R3: Using BC in front and CC in back; Ch 2, DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC; *with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC), with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 12 DC.Turn. Total 216 DC. 108 BC- DC,108 CC-DC.

Repeat R2- R3 till you get the desired diameter. I aimed for 50″.

¹[V Stitch] – (2 DC, Ch 2, 2DC) in same chain space.

Caution Section:-

  1. This tree skirt contains 2 colours divided into alternate Red and Bone colour 6 times.
  2. Make sure the next row should match the colour sequence of the previous row.
  3. Carry the other colour in the back to avoid knots and joining of the yarn.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • The diameter of the tree skirt: 50″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • You can add a different colour edging to the tree skirt.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.

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

Winter/ Fall Seasoned Crochet MishMash Minted Scarf Free Pattern for an Adult Woman - kNot mY deSigns

MishMash Minted Scarf

Why have people decided associated babies or gender with colours? If it’s blue, then it’s a boy, if it’s pink it’s a girl. Since the time I can recall, my wardrobe has had shades of blue, thankfully, rather than the gender stereotyped pink. Interestingly, when I grew up, I came across many who also considered blue as their preferred colour. With so many shades available, it is not at all hard to say that every woman has at least one blue outfit in her wardrobe. After all, Blue goes with everything!

Well, it was no surprise when the customer too asked for a minty blue colour scarf for herself, even though her favourite colour is purple. After looking at the colour of the yarn, I decided to go for a lacy stitch pattern which can be draped as a scarf as well as a cowl based on your need.

Process:

The pattern is selected from The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs. I have used 2-3 bigger size hook than the recommended one to give a lacy look. Chain multiples of 4 +1.

R1: Single Crochet (SC) in the 7th chain(ch) from the hook, ch 2, skip(sk) next ch, Double Crochet(DC) in next ch, *ch 2, sk next ch, SC in next ch, DC in next ch; rep from * across, turn.

R2: ch 1, SC in 1st DC, * sk next ch-2 space, (DC, ch 3, DC) in next SC, sk next ch-2 space, SC in next DC; rep from * across, ending with last SC in 3rd ch of the turning ch, turn.

R3: Ch 5 (counts as DC, ch 2), SC in next ch-3 loop, ch 2, DC in next SC, *ch 2, SC in next ch-3 loop, ch 2, DC in next SC; rep from * across, turn.

Rep Rows 2-3 for the pattern.

The female scarf measures 70″ by 6″.

Caution Section:-

  1. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the Lacey effects.
  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. To increase the gap or increase the Lacey effect, it is best if the crochet hook is 2-3 sizes greater than the recommended hook.
  4. playing with points 2 and 3 i.e. either increasing the crochet hook or changing the technique or mix of both you can give different flair to the same stitch pattern. For e.g. The recommended hook for Caron simply soft yarn is 5mm, but I chose 6 mm hook and loose stitch style.

Product Specifications:

Optional Alterations:-

  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, mustard will add the beauty.

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