After the Rain ~ free crochet child tank top pattern by Jessie At Home

This sweet little tank is a great accessory for any little girl’s summer! It can be worn with jeans, a skirt, or anything in between. This pattern is only available in child small, I may one day go back and make it in more sizes, but that would most likely be a paid pattern. For now, this is the size I needed for a fun piece for one of my daughters for Easter, so this is the size you get for free. 🙂 I made it using some leftover Lion Brand Modern Baby yarn from another rainbow project I made. You can make yours in just one color, or however many make you happy!!

Askew ~ Free Crochet Wrap Pattern by Jessie At Home

Askew
Free Crochet Wrap Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

I received quite a few skeins of yarn in various goodie bags at the last Knit & Crochet show I attended. One skein that really caught my eye was JoJoLand Melody Superwash. It was so pretty and squishy and just needed to be worn! At first I planned on a smaller, asymmetrical bandana~type item, but I was so in love that I ordered 2 more skeins and Askew was born.

Askew is an asymmetrical wrap made in a variation of the spider stitch. It increases every other row on one side, and decreases every 4th row on the other, creating a fun wedge shape that makes an appealing wrap or scarf. This pattern includes a written pattern, a video and a chart as well.

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.

Simple-Chain-Stitch-Necklace-Marker

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 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.

Simple-Chain-Stitch-Necklace-Start-Chain

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.

You won’t believe the simplicity of this pattern! It is simply a linen stitch rectangle with a slit in the middle, which is then folded in half. The vertical stripes add a fun accent to this easy tee. Plus, AUNT LYDIA’S® Baker’s Cotton is machine washable, and so very attractive!

Gauge:
26 sts and 27 rows in a 4” square in linen stitch. It is very important that you obtain gauge, use whatever size hook is needed to get the correct gauge. If your gauge is off, your tee will not be the correct size.

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

Getting Started:
Keep a row count throughout the entire pattern. Follow the color chart at the end of the pattern

Pattern:

Row 1: With smaller hook, ch 266 (274, 288, 294, 296, 300, 300, 306, 306), switch to larger hook, sc in second ch from hook, [ch 1, skip 1, sc in next ch] until 1 ch remains, sc in last ch.
*If you want your top to be longer, please see the instructions at the end of the pattern. The top is made longer by starting with more chains.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp] through last ch-1, sc in last sc.
Repeat row 2: until there are a total of 53 (61, 67, 75, 81, 89, 95, 101, 109) rows.

Neck opening row: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp] 35 (37, 38, 40, 40, 40, 40, 41, 40) times, switch to smaller hook, ch 89 (89, 91, 95, 95, 99, 101, 101, 105), skip 89 (89, 91, 95, 95, 99, 101, 101, 105), switch to larger hook, sc in next ch-1 sp, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp] through last ch-1, sc in last sc.

Next Row: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 1, skip 1, sc in next st] until 1 st remains, sc in last sc. (on this row the single crochets worked over the linen st sections will be worked in the ch-1 spaces, and the single crochets work over the ch section will be worked in the chains.

Repeat row 2: until the color chart is completed, do not end off the last row, pull the loop long so it does not come undone, and remove hook.
Weave in all ends.

Bakers-Tee-laying-flat

Border: Insert hook back into the loop from the last row and pull loop back around the hook. Ch 2, rotate piece, (sc in the edge of the next row, ch-1, skip the edge of the next row) across bottom of piece, rotate piece, ch 2, (sc in next ch-1, ch 1) along side of piece, ch 2, rotate piece, (sc in the edge of the next row, ch-1, skip the edge of the next row) across bottom of piece, join with a sl st to the first st of the last row made before the border.

Finishing: Fold the tee in half, so the long edge is folded and the short edges are lined up at the bottom; the fold is the top/shoulders of the tee. Sew up sides starting 2” above the bottom, and stopping 6.5 (7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5) inches below the top. **optional: Instead of using the measurements given, try the tee on and determine the point that looks best for the end of the side seam. I suggest leaving a long tail on the seaming yarn, so after completing the seam you can try on the tee and raise or lower the armhole as may be needed.

To make the top longer:
If you want it longer you will start off with more chains. Determine how much longer you want the top to be, and add on 13 sts for each extra inch, then round up to the closest multiple of 4, (so for 1 inch you would add 1×13=13, round to 16, for 2 you would add 2×13=26, round to 28, for 3 you would add 3×13=39, round to 40, and so on) this will add 2 inches to the rectangle for every inch you need in length, but as it is folded in half, that is one inch to the bottom of the front, and one inch to the bottom of the back. When you get to the row for the neck slit, you will have to add half as many stitches before your neck slit. So if you added 16 stitches to your chain, you will have to make 8 more sts before starting the next, which is 4 more repeats of the [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp].

Obviously, adding length will affect the yarn amount used, be sure to buy enough yarn.

The other option is to add more onto the short ends of the rectangle after it is made by adding more rows of linen stitch after completing the border. This will effectively make a horizontal stripe at the bottom of the tee.
