Yarnie items I have and love!

I won!!

{ 9 comments }

OK, it is pretty clear I did not win the community choice vote for the Stevie Nicks shawl contest. First and second place both doubled my votes, but third isn’t bad.

However, the title of this post is not a lie. You see, I won something even better then $500 (though that sure would have been nice after having to buy a new washer last week).

When the contest was announced, I had quite a few people bring it to my attention and tell me I should enter. When I did enter, people started sharing like crazy. They wrote some of the most touching things about me. Not just about this one design, but about ME, and all my designs. As much as I know that the crochet designer and blogger community that I am a part of is incredibly supportive, I still was floored to see it in action for me.

Even though this is not the first time they have come to my aid, it is still overwhelming to see that support. I know it’s what we do for each other. Whenever someone does something especially wonderful, or needs support, or is just having a bad day, we all rally together. Spread out all over the world, we are one family, as close as can be.

I spent a long time looking for a place where I fit. I realized last night that I found it. I won.

Scrappy Scoodie ~ Crochet Version

Scrappy Scoodie ~ Crochet Version
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

I have been wanting to make a scoodie for a while now, and then last week I made some yarn from left over little balls I had, and it was screaming “scoodie!!” to me. So here is my fabulously fun scrappy scoodie pattern for you. :)

Scrappy-Scoodie-Crochet-Jessie-At-Home

Size:
Child small (18~20”) and large (20~21”) ~ sm (lg)

Yarn:
Loops and Threads Charisma
220 (300) grams

Hook:
US 10.5/K/6.50 mm

Gauge:
15 sts (5 sets of (sc, ch-1, sc)) by 11 rows in stitch pattern in a 4″ square

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
st(s) ~ stitch(es)

Getting Started:
I had a lot of small balls of Charisma yarn left over from last year’s Christmas gifts. I cut it into 2~4 yard pieces and tied it back together to make this yarn. You can read more about how I “made” my yarn here.

Charisma Loops and Thread yarn is part of Michaels store brand yarn. If you do not have a local Michaels, you can replace it with another chunky yarn, just be sure to get the correct gauge.
Scrappy Scoodie

There is no need to weave in ends. Just make sure to tie a knot (really!!) and clip the end to the same length as all the other ends sticking out.

Stitch Pattern for a gauge swatch:
Chain 17
Row 1: (Sc, ch 1, sc) in the second ch from the hook, * skip 1, (sc, ch 1, sc) in the next ch, repeat from * until 2 ch remain, sc in last ch.
Row 2: Turn, ch 1, (sc, ch 1, sc) in each ch-1 across row, sc in last st.

Row 3~17: Turn, ch 1(counts as first sc), (sc, ch 1, sc) in each ch-1 across row, sc in last st. (19 (21) sets of (sc, ch-1, sc))
