Fall Leaves Wrap Take 2!!

{ 2 comments }

Well, after  lots of work, and lots of fun, I have finished the additions to the Fall Leaves Wrap pattern. It now has even more process photos, a chart for the leaves, and a 2 color leaf option, where the leaves are one color on one side of the vein, and another color on the other side of the vain.

I even made a sample of the 2 color leaf version. The original is made with Berroco Remix yarn, and the 2 color leaf version is made with Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable. If you use Unforgettable with the recommended hook, you will get a smaller gauge and end up with a smaller wrap that really resembles more of a capelet. Of course, you can always use a larger hook to create a larger wrap.

You can see more about the wrap and how to get the pattern here.

BUT WAIT!! Would you like a discount? I have set up a coupon good for 15% off your ENTIRE purchase from my Ravelry store for fans of The Crochet Lounge. So that means you can buy several patterns and get 15% off everything! Go on over to The Crochet Lounge post to get the details. The coupon expires on the 7th, so don’t miss out.

Would you like to see a picture of the 2 color leaf version?

Labor Day Blast!

{ 2 comments }

I have been working hard all weekend, with the house to myself. I still have a lot to do before I feel caught up from all the craziness over the summer. No, I have not forgotten to share, there will still be more posts to show the rest of our summer fun.

Anyway, part of what I need to catch up on is sharing all the awesome patterns and crochet fun that has appeared on the internet over the past couple months. I normally share about 6 links a day, but I have a very long list of things I have STILL not gotten to.

So, for the rest of today through midnight eastern, and tomorrow from 7 am to midnight, I will be sharing 3 to 4 links every hour!!

Where do I share? Well they all show up simultaneously on Twitter, my Facebook page, on my G+ page, and in my Facebook group. So be sure to follow one (or more) of those for lots of awesome crochet goodies!!

Speaking of crochet goodies…

You only have through tomorrow night (midnight eastern time), to get my Fall Leaves Wrap pattern for just $4.50. After that the price will go up to $6.00. I am adding a chart to the pattern, more process photos, and a 2 color leaf option as well. Would you like to see what the 2 color leaf pattern looks like? I have worked up a sample using Red Heart Unforgettable yarn. It works up in a smaller gauge than the Berocco Remix, so it is more of a capelet. Of course, you could use a larger hook to get the gauge larger. All the details will be in the updated pattern. As I said before, anyone who buys the pattern at $4.50 will get the updated pattern automatically, just check your Ravelry library on Wednesday.

Here is a snap of it blocking on my table top in my little basement work room.

OK, I have a lot of crocheting and pattern writing to do. Oh, and those shares, lots of shares to schedule…

Chain-Wrap-Bracelet-Cover-Square

Chain Wrap Bracelet
Crochet Pattern
Beginner Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This simple bracelet is great for beginners all the way to experts. All you need to know is how to make a crochet chain, and how to sew on a button. There is a video that shows how to make this bracelet from beginning to end. Even a new crocheter can show off a pretty finished project with this chain wrap bracelet!

Chain-Wrap-Bracelet-Free-Crochet-Pattern

Sizes:
Any size you want

Yarn:
Any sport, DK, worsted, or even a slightly chunky yarn will do.

Hook:
Whatever hook gives you the look you like with your yarn

Other Supplies:
Yarn needle
A 3” scrap of non~fuzzy yarn, or a stitch marker
one 3/4″ to 1″ button
Sewing needle
Sewing thread

Gauge:
Not important

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip stitch

Here is a video showing how to make the bracelet start to finish.

Getting Started:
Choose your yarn(s). Try making a chain that is about 6” long with the hook you think might be the right size. If your chain is too loose, switch to a smaller hook, if your chain is too tight, switch to a larger hook. Once you have found the hook that makes a chain you like, then get started!

Chain-Wrap-Bracelet-Free-Crochet-Pattern-by-Jessie-At-Home

Pattern:
Chain: Make chains until your piece wraps around your wrist twice (or as many times as you want your bracelet to wrap).

Place a marker: If you have a marker, attach it now. If you do not, grab a scrap of yarn that is not fuzzy. Place the yarn against the hook and make a chain, catching the yarn as make the chain. This will mark the start of your button loop.

Button Loop: Chain until the part of your chain after the marker can make a loop the correct size for your button to go through. Start with about 6 chains for a worsted weight yarn and check the size. You can take chains out or add more to get the correct size loop. Once you have the right size, sl st into the marked stitch, remove marker. This will make the button loop.

Chain: Keep on making your chain. Make the chain so that it is the same length as the chain that leads up to the button hole. Once it is the same length, chain one more, clip the yarn, and pull the cut end through the last chain. Give the cut end a tug to tighten up the end.

Second Color: With the second color, chain until you have a piece that is the same length as the other 2 lengths of chain leading up to the button loop. Sl st into the bottom of the button loop, in between the 2 lengths of chain. Chain again until the last length of chain is as long as the rest, chain one more, clip the yarn, and pull the cut end through the last chain. Give the cut end a tug to tighten up the end. You will now have 4 chains, all the same length, hanging off the button loop.

Button: Thread your needle and sew the 4 chains together at the opposite end from the button loop, just where the chains all start/end. Fold the tails over and stitch them together, then clip them. Place the button over the cut ends and sew it on.

Simple-Chain-Necklace-Cover

Simple Chain Stitch Necklace
Crochet Pattern
Beginner Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

If you can make a crochet chain, you can make this necklace! It is super simple, and tons of fun. This necklace is a great way for those just learning to make a finished item, it is a wonderful project for kids (what a great Mother’s Day gift!) and it is even fun for the more advanced. It also makes for great craft fair stock!

This necklace can be made with one strand of yarn or many. If made with several strands of yarn and a large hook, it becomes a wonderful winter infinity scarf!

White-Simple-Chain-Stitch-Necklace

Sizes:
Any size you want

Yarn:
Any yarn you want

Hook:
Whatever hook gives you the look you like with your yarn

Other Supplies:
Yarn needle
A 3” scrap of non~fuzzy yarn, or a stitch marker
Optional: scrap of fabric and needle and thread to make a fabric band around the necklace

Gauge:
Not important

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain

Here is a video showing how to make the necklace start to finish. In addition the video explains about making the necklace with different yarns, various uses, and how to match your yarn with the right size hook.

Getting Started:
Choose your yarn(s). Try making a chain that is about 6” long with the hook you think might be the right size. If your chain is too loose, switch to a smaller hook, if your chain is too tight, switch to a larger hook. Once you have found the hook that makes a chain you like, then get started!

Pattern:
Chain: Chain, chain some more, keep chaining. Make the chain until your piece can make a loop the size you want for your necklace. Basically, once you think it is the right length for one loop, hold the starting end and the end on your hook together and see what the length looks like. Try it on, or compare it to a necklace or cowl that is already the length you like.

Place a marker: If you have a marker, attach it now. If you do not, grab a scrap of yarn that is not fuzzy. Place the yarn against the hook and make a chain, catching the yarn as make the chain. This will mark the length of your loop.

Simple-Chain-Stitch-Necklace-Marker

Chain: Keep on making your chain. Once it is long enough to make 3 loops, take a look at it with the three loops and see if you like it. If you want more loops, keep going. Keep on looking at it each time you make enough for another loop until you like the number of loops you have. Clip the yarn and pull the end through.

Simple-Chain-Stitch-Necklace-First-Loop

Wrap and tie: Once your chain is the length needed for the number of loops that you like, lay the necklace down on a table, and tie the beginning and end together. Put your hands inside the necklace and stretch it a bit to even out the loops (unless you want them uneven, which I like on the longer winter scarves). Wrap each end of the yarn in opposite directions around the necklace and tie it tight to hold all the loops together.

Simple-Chain-Necklace-Tie-Ends-Together

Band: Cut a piece of yarn about 4 feet long. Thread a yarn needle on one end. Sew it through the bundle where you tied the loops together, leaving about a 2” tail. Now start wrapping around the loops, starting at least ½” away from the knot, working over the knot, and ending at least ½” away from the knot on the other side. Do not cut yarn, do not worry if some of the loops show through. Wrap the yarn around back in the other direction making a second layer. Make a third layer if you want. Sew the end of the wrapping yarn back and forth through the wrapped section. Clip all the ends of your yarn.
