Gatlinburg Hat Crochet Pattern

 

The Gatlinburg Hat pattern was originally designed during the devastating wildfires taking place in the smoky mountains. A portion of the pattern sales were donated to the relief efforts. The crochet community came together in such an amazing way!

This hat is made with fair isle crochet techniques. It is very much like tapestry crochet except you float your yarn along the back instead of working around it in your stitches. I really love this technique to create different pictures within your crochet! This pattern is a great beginner pattern for those who have never done fair isle or tapestry crochet. The pattern includes written instructions, links to video tutorials, picture tutorials and a graph!

I LOVE the Herringbone Double Crochet stitch and I love sport weight yarn, so I combined the two to create this fun baby blanket!

I used Knit Picks Brava Sport for this pattern and it worked up beautifully! Brava Sport is one of my favorite yarns to work with because it is soft, sturdy, and very affordable at just $1.99/skein!

The Siesta Sweater is my new favorite design! This design has been an idea I’ve had on the back burner since last winter and I finally was able to complete it! I wanted something simple, but something that looked intricate! I also wanted something great for fall or spring as the weather was changing! It turned out just as beautiful as I had hoped! The Siesta Sweater is made with Knit Picks Brava Sport and comes with instructions for women’s sizes XS through 2X!

Celtic Weave Crochet Stitch- Left Handed Video Tutorial

The Celtic Weave crochet stitch is one of my favorite stitches to use in my projects! I currently have three patterns published that use the Celtic Weave stitch! This stitch is what I would consider an intermediate crochet stitch. Although once you get the hang of it, it becomes quite easy. I’ve created a video tutorial to show you how to do the Celtic Weave stitch if you are left-handed. If you are working my Celtic Weave Pillow Cover pattern, my Celtic Weave Kitchen Set pattern, or the Celtic Weave Mini Slouch crochet pattern, this tutorial should be very helpful! 

The Celtic Weave Stitch Video Tutorial is made for left handed crocheters, but it can also be helpful for right-handed crocheters. The concept is the same, right-handed crocheters will just be working from right to left, instead of left to right. 

You can find the full video tutorial on my YouTube channel HERE

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flowers & Showers Blanket Crochet Pattern

Flowers & Showers Blanket

 

I’m on a blanket kick as of late and I’m loving making blankets out of some of my popular stitch patterns! My first blanket design from a previous pattern is the Flowers & Showers Blanket! I used the brand new Caron Cakes that are all the rave right now, and it turned out just perfect!

This blanket pattern comes with instructions for a baby blanket, but also has a chart with stitch counts for every size up to a King size blanket! So I’ve already done half the work for you! The Caron Cakes are fun to work with, but this blanket can be made with any worsted weight yarn! It’s a fun stitch pattern that works up quickly. Great for a baby shower or Christmas gift!
