Just $18! When you factor in all the patterns in the bundle, they are just $0.60 per pattern! That’s a steal for premium patterns!!

Stay Wild Moon Child & Wild Moon Wall Hangings

Today’s pattern release is extra special because its a DOUBLE pattern release! You’ll get both the ‘Wild Moon’ & ‘Stay Wild Moon Child’ wall hanging patterns. I designed them to be the same size so you could hang them side by side as a statement piece, stagger them, or hang them separately! From the nursery to the living room, these wall hangings will be the perfect addition to any moon lovers decor!

Tapestry crochet patterns in progress. Crystals, candle, smudge stick, and feather sit in and around a keepsake box.

Inspiration:

This series of patterns was created for one of my dear friends. She’s a fellow Moon Child and a wildly creative soul. She’s one of the people that the universe placed in my path at the perfect time. If you think you can’t find real friendships through social media – you’re wrong! We originally bonded over the fact that we were both artists, then we found out that we were pregnant just 6 weeks apart. When we met for the first time, everyone around us thought we had been friends for years because the connection was so instant. Her birthday is coming up and when I think of her, I think of the moon. After I showed her the first design (Wild Moon) – she suggested making a second one the exact same size – then they could hang over her bed like a headboard! I loved the idea and the challenge was accepted! The Stay Wild Moon Child design was born!

The Yarn:

For the both these designs (and most of my other tapestry patterns) I’m using Loops & Threads Impeccable. I love to use an affordable, stiff yarn for my wall hangings. We want the tapestry to hold its shape for months/years on the wall, so save that fancy, gorgeous draping yarn for a garment! I always make my designs in black and white to showcase the design but please feel free to use any creative color combinations you like! The Impeccable line has SO MANY beautiful colors to choose from. Comparable yarns for substitutions include:

  • Red Heart Super Saver
  • Big Twist Value
  • Phentex Worsted
  • Bernat Super Value

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Tapestry crochet is done using the basic single crochet stitch, and a technique of holding 2 strands of yarn. The tutorial below will walk you through all the basics while you make a little tree sampler!

Materials:

  • 960 yards, worsted weight ( 4 ) yarn. I used Loops and Threads Impeccable, (4.5 oz/127.5 gm, 285 yds/260 m), in colors: White (approx.440yds) & Black (approx. 520yds)
  • US Size 7 Crochet Hook (4.5 mm)
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle
  • Spray Bottle
  • Pins
  • Foam mat
  • Stick / Dowel

Gauge:

15.5 stitches x 15.5 rows = 4″ square in SC

Sizes:

18 x 25.5 inches (without fringe)

Abbreviations / Stitches Used (US Standard)

  • CH – Chain
  • SC – Single Crochet
  • SLST – Slip Stitch
  • ST(S) – Stitch(es)
  • RS – Right Side

Diamond Daze Wall Hangings – Free Tapestry Crochet Patterns

Inclusivity. Exclusivity. 

On Wednesdays we wear pink. You can’t sit with us.

We have all experienced cliques at some point in our lives. Be it in high school, The Cool Moms group (you know the one), or in the workplace. They exist. Often with cliques I find that your worth is determined by your stature and what you have to offer rather than who you are or how you contribute. 

If people were able to set aside their differences and focus on working together, how different a place the world would be. A sentence that we have all heard but sometimes rarely think about. The notion behind “being exclusive” is only really fun for those on the inside. For the rest of us looking in, we are left feeling like we have to have that or we are missing out. 

That is where the idea of sharing this pattern with you all came from. This pattern was initially created to be featured in Kristy’s KYC Yarn Party Crochet Subscription Box. We worked together on this idea until it was something we both loved. Together we decided that by sharing it here in this form it would give us the ability to focus on community rather than competition. The people over profits mentality can build up not just one or two businesses but also all those who benefit. It takes it from an idea to a reality. It turns it into potential; a gift for a friend, that missing piece of decor for a nursery or perfect background for your office plant. 

So much of life is focused on what we can do to get ourselves ahead, sometimes at the expense of tearing others down. We get much further building each other up if we take the time to focus on truly loving our neighbor and being a good human. The simplest thing can change someone’s whole day, a compliment, a smile; sharing a pattern. While it may not be in the same capacity as those who ordered the subscription box, it is still a labor of love from us to you. Our gift to you. After all, no one wants to be excluded. 

Materials:

  • 185 yard worsted ( 4 ) weight yarn. I used Craft Smart Value Yarn in colors:
    • 100 yds White (MC) & 85 yds Orchid Mist (CC).
  • US Size H/8 Crochet Hook (5 mm)
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle
  • Spray Bottle
  • Pins
  • Foam mat
  • Stick / Dowel

Gauge:

16 stitches x 15 rows = 4″ square in SC

*Not super important for this project.*

Sizes:

  1. 5.75 x 16.5 inches (without fringe)
  2. 5.75 x 17.5 inches (without fringe)

Abbreviations / Stitches Used:

  • CH – Chain
  • SC – Single Crochet
  • SLST – Slip Stitch
  • ST(S) – Stitch(es)
  • RS – Right Side
  • WS – Wrong Side
  • MC – Main Color
  • CC – Contrast Color
  • Approx – Approximately
  • [>>] – Change color at end of row before turning

Notes:

  • All stitches are done in SC using the tapestry crochet technique of carrying two strands of yarn.
  • Turn your work at the end of each row.
  • CH1 at the beginning of each row. (Does not count as a ST

Feel Good Mittens – A Quick & Easy Crochet Pattern

My inspiration for this pattern came from my desire to make a pair of cozy pair of mittens that were also warm enough to withstand the cold (and sometimes harsh) Canadian winters. As Canadians, we grow up learning that winter is always just a few seasons away. We have learned to adapt for this reason. We have also learned to create things that will enable us to go about our day to day lives as well as enjoy outdoor activities for the duration of this long season. I like to think that these gloves allow for both these scenarios. They promote movement, comfort and functionality. If you are pumping your gas in a snowfall, taking the dog for a walk with a friend or ambushing your family with a snowball fight, they will always be there to keep your fingers warm and hands dry. 

I asked some friends and family who I have gifted these gloves to over the years why they love them. A few of the responses that I got back were “they are comfortable”, “they are SO soft” and “they photograph well” from a goofy sibling. All of these are things I had kept in mind when creating this pattern. Some of the reasons why I have chosen to gift them are because they make great stocking stuffers. If you have a large family like I do, having a pattern that is also quick and easy to make is important as life gets a little busier heading towards the holiday season! 

The Yarn:

For this pattern we are using Bernat Blanket yarn. I LOVE this yarn! It is a deliciously soft, chenille type yarn that is most often used for baby blankets. However, it has so much versatility that it makes it a great choice for this project as it is machine washable (Mom’s favorite phrase!) as well as dryer friendly! So after a few hours outside playing in the snow with your loved ones, feel free to take them off and pop them straight into the dryer while you warm up with hot cocoa and the perfect amount of marshmallows. 

If you’ve never made a pair of mittens before, don’t worry! This beginner friendly pattern uses only single crochet and a few chains! I’ll walk you through step by step.

I’m so excited – On November 27, 2020, you can download this pattern as a free PDF on Ravelry through the Winter Fashion Blog Hop on the E’Claire Makery Blog. First, head to the E’Claire Makery Blog to get the coupon code. Then, come back to here to get the link to the pattern. The free PDF will only be available for 24 hours starting at midnight EST on the 27th.

Don’t want to wait? You can get this pattern and the 20+ other winter fashion patterns from amazing designers in one big, lovely bundle! By purchasing the bundle, you’ll be saving over 90% off the regular pattern prices!

Materials:

  • 80 yards, Super Bulky weight, ( 6 ). I used Yarnspirations Bernat Blanket Yarn, 10.5 oz/300 gm, 220 yds/201 m
  • US Size L Crochet Hook (8 mm)

  • Darning Needle

Skill Level:

Easy – Advanced Beginner

Gauge:

Rnd 1: 1.5 inches

Rnd 2:2 inches

Rnd 3:2.75 inches

Adult Woman – I’ll show you how to add or subtract length for a custom fit.

Stitches Used:

  • CH – Chain
  • SC – Single Crochet
  • SC2TOG – Single Crochet 2 Together (SC Decrease)
  • SLST – Slip Stitch
  • ST(s) – Stitch(es)
  • SK – Skip

Notes:

  • Each round ends with a SLST to the 1st ST.

Make your SLST tight

After CH1, pull your yarn tight

Autumn Bliss Cowl – One Skein Wonder – Free Crochet Pattern

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.” – Emily Bronte

There is something quite magical about the changing of the seasons. The vivid hues of yellow, orange, and red. The crunching of the leaves underfoot. As the the crisp fall air kisses your cheeks, you reach for your cowl and pull it up close. The Autumn Bliss Cowl is the perfect transitional piece for your fall and winter wardrobe. This textured beauty is a close fitting, collar style cowl that can be worn tall to cover your face from the elements or worn gathered around your neck for a relaxed fall vibe. Pair it with a long tunic and leggings or a jean jacket!

I wanted to design a pattern that was first and foremost, cozy. I also wanted to create something that could be made with just one skein of yarn (money saving!) and crocheted in under an hour (time saving!) so that it makes the perfect cowl for gift giving or for market prep! One skein – one hour! Yep! Who doesn’t love a quick and easy make?

Speaking of gift giving… I had the opportunity to collaborate with Kristine of Ambassador Crochet for her 30 Days of Gift Giving blog hop! There are 30 talented designers giving you a FREE PDF every day for the month of November! How wonderful is that?? On Thursday, November 5th 2020, you will be able to download the Autumn Bliss Cowl premium PDF for FREE as part of the 30 Days of Giving – Click here to find the download code and then click the button below to download from Ravelry.

Construction: This cozy cowl is crocheted bottom up, in the round and features one of of my favorite stitches – Half Double Crochet. We will use the HDC stitch a couple different ways, turning a basic stitch into the gorgeous textured ridges you see here! Half Double Crochet in the 3rd loop(3LHDC) and Half Double Crochet in the Back Loop(HDCBL). With just two repeat rounds, it makes the PERFECT Netflix and crochet project.

The Yarn: The Autumn Bliss Cowl uses just ONE skein of Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease Thick & Quick. I LOVE this yarn. It’s so versatile. 80% acrylic, which makes it a dream to work with. 20% wool for a touch of warmth but its not too scratchy on the skin! They have so many modern colors to choose from, it might be hard to make only one!

Materials:

  • 100 yards, Super Bulky ( 6 ) yarn. I used 1 skein Lion Brand Yarns, Wool Ease Thick & Quick, 6 oz/170 g, 106 yd/97 m, in the ‘mustard’ colorway.
  • US Size N Crochet Hook (10mm)
  • Scissors
  • Darning Needle
  • Stitch Marker (optional)

Gauge:

7.5 stitches x 5 rows = 4″ square in HDC

Skill level:

Easy – Advanced Beginner

Sizes:

The adult size is available for free here on my blog. I’ve included a toddler size in the premium PDF to make a Mommy & Me Cowl set! You can get that HERE in my Ravelry Shop.

Stitches used:

  • CH – Chain
  • FHDC – Foundation Half Double Crochet
  • 3LHDC – Half Double Crochet in 3rd Loop
  • HDCBL – Half Double Crochet Back Loop
  • SLST – Slip Stitch

Notes:

  • At the end of each round, join with SLST to 1st ST
  • If desired, mark 1st stitch of your round for ease of counting.
  • The adult size uses one full skein of yarn. You will need additional yarn for a toddler size.

Special Stitches

3LHDC – Yarn over, insert your hook into the 3rd loop only, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through all 3 loops.

HDCBL – Yarn over, insert your hook into the back loop only, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through all 3 loops.
