Last week I received a surprise in the mail from Lion Brand Yarn. Normally I do not like surprises, but when it comes to yarn companies, I am all for them!!

When the package arrived, I giggled in anticipation, then impatiently ripped it open to find this:

Lion-Brand-Mail

Ohhh! So pretty. And soft. And cuddly. I giggled some more.

These are new members of the LB Collection family. I am a big fan of the LB collection. I actually have several other LB yarns on my shelves, waiting to become patterns (or samples for patterns) to share with you!

I started with the Silk Chiffon Ribbon yarn. It wanted to be a knit scarf. I didn’t want the chiffon to have to handle all the abuse I give my scarves, so I needed to pair it up with something. I searched and searched my stash. Eventually I came up with some single ply yarn I had made with Lion Brand Homespun roving (which can be bought at the Lion Brand Outlet in NJ). You can see some pictures of some 2 ply yarn I had made with it back in May toward the bottom of this post.

I held the Silk Chiffon Ribbon and the handspun Homespun (now that is just fun to say) together as one to make the scarf. I came up with a simple pattern that shows off the yarn. I took a few photos yesterday, but they are not great, so I need to snap a few more. I should have better pictures and a pattern for you on Monday!

Chute-and-Ladders-Scarf-Take-One

*See ~ fuzzy photos. I’ll get some better snaps for the pattern photos.

As for the Crepe yarns, they are also on my knitting needles. For some reason, both of these yarns wanted me to knit them. Though I think I will need to get some more of the crepe for some crochet patterns at a later date. Anyway, the crepe yarns are both being used for a knit cowl. It is not that far along, but you are going to LOVE it when I have enough done to share. ūüôā

Happy yarning, my friends!

Oh, my, just as I was about to post this, I received more fun mail!! Two crochet books I am going to review for you this month. So much fun to come!!

Unchained Shawl
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

If you can make a chain stitch and a single crochet, you can make the Unchained Wrap! It is super simple, and utilizes the beauty of variegated yarn to create a stunning piece that will make everyone take notice. For those of you who like charts, I have created one for Unchained, in addition to writing out the pattern.

Unchained-Free-Crochet-Pattern-by-Jessie-At-Home

Sizes:
Any! Just keep going until you have reached your desired size.

Yarn:
RED HEART¬ģ Boutique Unforgettable: 3 skeins (270 g)
Or more or less if you want to change the size

For the sample seen in the photos, I used the left over yarn from my Fall Leaves Wrap, plus 1 additional full skein. Here are the colors I used, in the order I used them, and the amount that I used:
9942 Cappuccino, 10 g
3956 Polo, 18 g
3950 Petunia, 30 g
3940 Echo, 36 g
3932 Springtime, 75 g
3935 Dragonfly, 100 g

Hook:
US 8/H/5.00 mm

Other Supplies:
Yarn needle

Gauge:
Not really important in this pattern, as you can just go until you reach your desired size.

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

Getting Started:
Starting with row 2, every row starts with a sc. There is no starting chain. This may seem odd, but just make the first sc, it will work out fine.

Big things in the works! (yarn and home)

Wow, I have a lot of things in the works right now!!

First I have some big news that will make a lot of you happy.

I have started the CROCHET versions of the Kat/Katherine coats!!!

First I will be making the child’s pattern, sizes 3 to 12, same as the knit version. I am using Lion Brand Heartland for this one. It is soft, shiny, and oh, so pretty. Plus it is washable and made in the USA. It will most likely be fall before the child version is ready to send to the testers, and then 3 or 4 months with the testers before the pattern is ready for the public.

Kat-Coat-Child-Knit-Pattern

Once the child version is with the testers, I will start on the adult version. Sizes XS to 5X, just like the knit version. I am thinking of using Heartland Thick & Quick, but I’m really not sure on that one. I am very excited about this! Fairy coats for EVERYONE!!!

Fairy-Coat-Knit-Pattern-Katherine-Coat-Cover-Photo

Have I told you my parents were transferred? Mom is now teaching on a base in Sicily (I think it’s in Sicily). I’m not sure if it is an Army or Navy base, but my guess would be Navy.

Yarn-From-Mom

I received a package in the mail from my mom today. This fun yarn was in it. It is called Balocco, and it is from Tropical Lane. I have no idea what I am going to make with it, but considering I have about a million WiPs, maybe I should just think on it for a while…

Jack's-Scarf

Speaking of Mom, a while back she told me about a gentleman she worked with who had a great scarf that his grandfather had made for him. I had her take some photos and send me an email with a bit about it.

Jack-and-his-scarf

Here is the email she sent with the photos:

This is Jack. His grandfather made him the scarf when he was 12. His grandfather was a carpenter and made the scarfs to supplement¬†his income.¬†Jack didn’t see him make it but was told that his grandfather took a board,¬†pounded nails in it, and somehow wove the scarf. I thought of you as soon as¬†I saw it.

Love,
Mom

I wonder if it was something like the knitting looms that are so popular now. Or maybe it is something else entirely. If you have any idea, let me know. I would love to figure this out!

 

Back to my home, I have way more knit and crochet WiPs then I would like to admit. So what is there to do, but start another?

Kyla-reno-start-of-rug

This¬†is going to be a rug for Kyla’s Pink Princess Room. I am using 4 strands of Red Heart Super Saver at a time with size 35 knitting needles. As you can see, I am knitting it in panels, and using a join~as~you~go method to add on to it. This way it fits on my needles, and I can easily make color stripes.

Yes, I am writing down the pattern as I go, and I will share it when I am done. The cable pattern is one that has been floating about in my head for a while. I am thinking of making a smaller version for a pillow as well.

Kyla-reno-Ready-to-reno

As for the Pink Princess Room…

We went to Home Depot on Friday and bought most of what we would need to fix up the room. Those floor boards are as wide as the box. They really look like something you would imagine in a castle, and it was still less than $100 for enough for the whole room!

Kyla-reno-almost-done-drywall

We ended up pulling down all the plaster from the ceiling. It just was not going to look good if we patched it. And really, it only took 3 sheets of drywall to do the whole ceiling.

Most of my renovation knowledge comes from my father, and I have to thank him for that! I don’t even want to know what would have happened if he hadn’t taught me so much. Not to mention the vast amount of awesome tools in my garage. Doug’s friends come over, drool over the tools, and then are shocked to learn they are MINE!! Anyway, there is one thing I have to thank the DIY network for: teaching me about the drywall lift! For less then $30 we rented that thing for 4 hours and got the ceiling up without any injury or even much strain.

Kyla-reno-drywell-is-up

There were a few little hiccups, but considering neither of us had ever put up a ceiling before or even watched someone put up a ceiling (other than on the DIY network), I think it is pretty good!

Kyla-reno-tape-and-mud

Ready for some paint. Did you know there is special ceiling paint. I had never really thought about it before, but ceiling paint is a bit thicker so it doesn’t drip. You know, gravity and all.

Kyla-reno-this-needs-another-coat

One coat wasn’t cutting it. The green from the mold and mildew resistant drywall was showing through.

Kyla-reno-Kyla-helps

Kyla helped Doug with the second coat. Do you like my paint roller extender? That would be one of those nifty tools. Thanks Dad!! The silver part spins back into the rest, making the length adjustable, and the storage size just about 2 feet tall.

Doug laughed at me when I got so excited about that thing when Dad gave it too me a few years ago. Guess who isn’t laughing anymore?

Kyla-reno-lots-of-white

With the last of the ceiling paint, I had Doug go over the nicotine stained walls. They were so gross. (No, we do not smoke, this room was an office before, and the previous owners smoked in there.)

We bought a can of eggshell paint and a can of dark pink paint, with the intent of making 3 colors in between the eggshell and the dark pink, so 5 colors all together. The plan was then to paint the panels of the wood paneled walls in the 5 colors, and put the polka dots of the 4 pink on the ceiling.

Kyla-reno-white-on-white

Well, once I started painting one of the eggshell stripes, it became quite apparent the the eggshell was actually grey in comparison to the ceiling white. So, that meant I had to paint that little valley between all the panels in the eggshell in order to give the whole room a unified look. Don’t worry if that didn’t make since, as the project goes on, you will see…

Kyla-reno-more-stripes

Here we have the start of the first pink. I am going light to dark. After finishing the eggshell, I poured some off into an old Rubbermaid container for trim and touch ups; and then added some of the dark pink to get the lightest shade. We actually have a color card we are using to to determine the shades.

Kyla-reno-2-colors-done

Once I finished the light pink, I stored some of that in another container, and tomorrow I will repeat the process twice more for the 2nd and 3rd pink. The last pink will be the dark pink from the can, so I won’t have to mix that one.

OK, I have to get to my yarn, I have been neglecting it for paint, and it is sad.

Pretties in the works

One of the hardest things about selling designs is having to sit on things. Any design that I may want to sell to a yarn company, magazine, or some other website/company/what~have~you, I have to keep quite. No one will buy it if I have posted photos of it, and once I sell it, I can’t share until it is published. Obviously I can’t share the pattern at that point, but I can share where you can get the pattern, and photos of what I have made.

Anyway, this means I have to keep a lot of secrets. This week I have made some decisions on some of my patterns in the works, so those set for this blog, or for me to sell on my own can now be shared!

I have always know that the Katherine coat will be one I sell myself, and that will still be a few months off, though the testers are making some real beauties! I did make a new set of video tutorials for joining vertical stripes as you knit them. I still need to get them up in the tips and tricks section. The videos will be free for all, as they are not the pattern, just a technique used in the pattern.

Join-as-you-go-knit-vertical-stripes

Many moons ago I came up with this little swatch. It is based on fans, and has been waiting to be transformed into something fun.

Fan-shawl-swatch

After starting and frogging (several times) a shawl using this pattern as the basis, I finally think I have a great idea. Here is the beginning of my “I Love Fans” knit shawl. The fourth beginning. I will take photos each time I place a lifeline so you can see the journey. I think when it is done I will make a crochet version as well.

start-of-fan-shawl

I will be posting a crochet hat and scarf set over the next week or two. They are a pair, but I will post the hat and the scarf separately. Then I REALLY need to stop with the winter stuff and move onto some more spring/summer patterns.

raised-stripes-hat

The Raised Stripes hat and scarf set will feature raised vertical stripes, and colored horizontal stripes. I will have my wonderful testers use various stripe patterns to give you lots of ideas!

front-of-raised-stripes-hat

I LOVE the brim on this hat. You can leave it down to be toasty warm, fold it up for a shorter hat, or just fold the front up for a fun look that still keeps your ears warm.

flipped-brim-raised-stripes-hat

I also did some cleaning in my basement work room. I finally got my Berocco stash all organized. This is JUST the Berocco yarn, no other brands. And there are 2 wips I have in project bags that are not shown here.

this-is-just-the-Berocco-yarn

Over the weekend we had some company. On Saturday my friend Marsha came over. We put out lots of fun foods to pick at all day.

yummy-spread

Vada made a very tall Ritz and Almond Cocoa spread layered sandwich. She was quite pleased with herself.

Vada's-super-cracker-sandwich

Whew, this is going to be hard.

whew

It was very yummy.

yummy

Marsha brought peanut butter covered chocolate chip cookie brownies.

mmm-cookie-brownies

Later we had Japanese ice cream ~ you know the kind wrapped in rice dough. Mmm. Green tea flavored. My favorite. I think I could live on this stuff.

Mochi-ice-cream

I have lots more to make. I will keep sharing what I can. Hopefully some of the designs I have sold will  be available soon, and I will share those as well!

Leo Scarf: Chunky Weight ~ Free Crochet Pattern

| Crochet, Pattern, Scarf, Tutorial

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.


Eli-Scarf-Free-Crochet-Pattern-Homespun

Leo Scarf ~ Chunky Weight
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Eli-Scarf-Free-Crochet-Pattern-Chunky

This double strand, double crochet scarf can be worked vertically or horizontally. The Leo scarf is so easy, quick, and fun. If you can chain and double crochet, you can make Leo! It is quite simple to adjust the size of this scarf, or just use the sizes given in the pattern that will fit a child on up to an adult, male or female. You can even add fringe or pom poms on the ends for even more fun! You can also find a pattern for this scarf made with 2 strands of worsted yarn, here. Make a matched set with the Eli hat or make a coordinating cowl for a friend with the Ali cowl.

Sizes:
Small (Medium, Large, XL)
Measurements: 4 x 40 (6 x 50, 8 x 60, 10 x 70)

Yarn:
Chunky weight yarn in two solid colors, or one solid and one variegated, such as Loops and Thread Charisma, or Lion Brand Homespun, or even 3 strands of worsted weight.

Supplies:
US 13/N/9.00 mm crochet hook
Yarn needle

Gauge:
Holding 2 strands of yarn together and working them as one: 7 stitches and 4 rows in dc make a 4‚ÄĚ square.

Stitches and Skills used:
Ch ~ chain
dc ~ double crochet
sl st ~ slip stitch
St(s) ~ stitch(es)
Beg ~ beginning
Rep ~ repeat

Getting Started:
Hold 2 strands of yarn together and work as one for entire pattern.
There are notes in the pattern to change the size as you desire.

Vertical scarf:
Row 1:
Ch 9 (13, 16, 20), dc in 4th ch from hook dc in each remaining st across. (6 (10, 13, 17) dc)

To change the width of the scarf, multiply the width you want by 1.75, than add 2. For example if you want your scarf to be 14 inches then 14 x 1.75 = 24.5 + 2= 26.5, so you would start with 27 chains.

Row 2: Turn, ch 3 (counts as first dc) dc in each remaining st around. (7 (11, 14, 18) dc).

Rep row 2: until scarf is 40 (50, 60, 70) inches long, or desired length. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Horizontal scarf:

This double strand, double crochet scarf can be worked vertically or horizontally. The Leo scarf is so easy, quick, and fun. If you can chain and double crochet, you can make Leo! It is quite simple to adjust the size of this scarf, or just use the sizes given in the pattern that will fit a child on up to an adult, male or female. You can even add fringe or pom poms on the ends for even more fun! You can also find a pattern for this scarf made with 2 strands of chunky yarn, here. Make a matched set with the Eli hat or make a coordinating cowl for a friend with the Ali cowl.

Sizes:
Small (Medium, Large, XL)
Measurements: 4 x 40 (6 x 50, 8 x 60, 10 x 70)

Yarn:
Worsted weight yarn in two solid colors, or one solid and one variegated, such as Red Heart Super Saver or Red Heart with Love
68 (128, 203, 297) yards of each color, 62 (117, 186, 272) grams of each color

Supplies:
US 13/N/9.00 mm crochet hook
Yarn needle

Gauge:
Holding 2 strands of yarn together and working them as one: 8 stitches and 5 rows in dc make a 4‚ÄĚ square.

Stitches and Skills used:
Ch ~ chain
dc ~ double crochet
sl st ~ slip stitch
St(s) ~ stitch(es)
Beg ~ beginning
Rep ~ repeat

Getting Started:
Hold 2 strands of yarn together and work as one for entire pattern.
There are notes in the pattern to change the size as you desire.

Vertical scarf:

Row 1: Ch 10 (14, 18, 22), dc in 4th ch from hook dc in each remaining st across. (7 (11, 15, 19) dc)
To change the width of the scarf, multiply the width you want by 2, than add 2. For example if you want your scarf to be 14 inches then 14 x 2 = 28 + 2= 30, so you would start with 30 chains.

Row 2: Turn, ch 3 (counts as first dc) dc in each remaining st around. (8 (12, 16, 20) dc).

Rep row 2: until scarf is 40 (50, 60, 70) inches long, or desired length. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Row 1: Ch 82 (102, 122, 142), dc in 4th ch from hook dc in each remaining st across. (79 (99, 119, 139) dc)

Row 2: Turn, ch 3 (counts as first dc) dc in each remaining st around. (80 (100, 120, 140) dc).

Rep row 2: until scarf is 4 (6, 8, 10) inches wide, or desired width. Fasten off and weave in ends.
