I’ve been wanting to design an easy yet versatile pattern that could be made into a cowl OR a scarf depending on my crochet ADD mood ;) OH you know exactly what I mean my friends! Well I finally sat down & worked one up. I am thrilled with how it came out! I hope you like it too.

You are free to work this pattern as skinny or as thick & as long or as short as you like! You can join the ends together and make a cowl or leave it open and make a scarf. See how easy it is! You can make a few all different styles and colors from the SAME pattern. Love it!

2 in 1 Cowl/Scarf FREE Pattern2 in 1 Cowl/Scarf FREE Pattern

Materials:
Any WW (Worsted Weight) yarn ~ I used Vanna’s Choice & Lion Brand Wool-Ease
You will need 1 skein for the scarf and 2 skeins for the cowl if using those brands.
Size I 5.5mm hook
Yarn Needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations:
st(s) – stitch(es)
sp – space
sk – skip
slst – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
BLO – back loop only
FHdc - foundation half double crochet ~ follow this link for instructions on how to work this: http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-crochet-the-half-double-crochet-chainless-foundation/

NOTE 1: The ch1 NEVER counts as a stitch.
NOTE 2: The tutorial photos are for instructional purposes ONLY. Do not rely on them for stitch counts.
NOTE 3: Your beginning chain, no matter how skinny or thick you want, make sure it is in multiples of 3 PLUS 1 st.
For example: 9 (multiple of 3) + 1 = 10 for your beginning chain.

TO START:

Row 1 – FHdc beginning ch count, ch1, turn. (I did 31 for the cowl & 16 for the scarf)
Row 2 – hdc in BLO across, ch1, turn.
backloop

Row 3 to whatever desired length you want (I did 83 for the cowl & 153 for the scarf) - Repeat Row 2.

*After the last row is worked ~
IF you are working the COWL:
ch1, now work 3sc in the indicated spaces around. See picture below.
3scsps

When you reach the end, line up the side of the cowl and slst up the seam.

After you slst up the seam, ch1, 3sc in the indicated spaces around (just like the other side), slst to join. Fasten Off and weave in all your ends!! :)

IF you are working the SCARF:
ch1, and instead of sewing up the seam you will work 3sc in each space indicated from pictures above and 3sc in each corner. When you reach the ends work *3sc, sk2* repeating across (see picture below), slst to first sc made to join. Fasten Off and weave in your ends!

Easiest Headwrap EVER!!!

Featured

, , , , , , , , ,

Welcome everyone!

I needed to work up a headwrap super fast and couldn’t find an easy basic pattern so I’ve decided to type up my own! I just recently worked up this flower and thought it would be the PERFECT embellishment for this awesome headwrap! I hope you love it as much as I do :)

If you know the crochet basics then you can do this! This headwrap is fantastic by itself OR embellished with whatever type of flower or bow pattern you like.

Bonus…it’s works up in NO time!

Big THANK YOU to my wonderful friend Amy from Photography by Amy for her amazing eye behind the lens and my gorgeous friend Emily from Elevate Salon for modeling last-minute for me! She said this was HER color…I couldn’t agree more :)

DSC_4163 copyDSC_4177 copy copy

This is, from now on, my GO-TO, no-brainer Easiest Headwrap EVER Pattern! I hope it quickly becomes yours.

Materials:
any WW yarn
Size H 5.0mm hook
Yarn sewing needle
One button

Abbreviations:
ch – chain
sk – skip
sp(s) – space(s)
slst – slip stitch
st – stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc – double crochet

Gauge: 7hdc x (almost) 6 rows = 2″ square
Finished headwrap measures approx. 22″ long

Note 1: When working the hdc stitches insert hook BETWEEN the stitches NOT in the top 2 loops. I love the way the stitches lay when worked this way and since the piece is worked back & forth it provides a more uniformed look. See picture below.

20121230-113532.jpg

Note 2: The ch1 NEVER counts as a stitch.

Note 3: I tend to crochet on the loose side so if you find as you’re working this up that it may be too short for you, just add some extra rows right before starting the decrease.

Row 1 - ch5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc across to end, ch1, turn. (4)
Row 2 - hdc in 1st st, ch2, sk 2 sts, hdc in last st, ch1, turn. (2 sts & a ch2 sp…button hole)
Row 3 - 2hdc in 1st st, 2hdc in ch2 sp, 2hdc in last st, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 4 - hdc in each st across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 5 - 2hdc, hdc in next 4, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 6 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 7 - 2hdc, hdc in next 6, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 8 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 9 - 2hdc, hdc in next 8, 2hdc, ch1, turn. (12)
Row 10 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (12)

Rows 11-55 – REPEAT Row 10. (12)

Row 56 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 9, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 57 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (10)
Row 58 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 7, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 59 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (8)
Row 60 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 5, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 61 - hdc across, ch1, turn. (6)
Row 62 - sk 1st st, hdc in next 3, sk 1 st, hdc in last, ch1, turn. (4)
Row 63 - hdc across, ch1, DO NOT TURN. (4)

*NOW work SC down the side of the piece all the way around by putting 1sc in each hdc row & 2sc in each corner. Slst to the first sc made to join. Finish off and weave in your ends.

Line up your button hole to the other side and sew on your button of choice!

EASY PEASY!!

I think this would make an awesome scrap yarn project with different colored rows!!

Now the FLOWER PATTERN:
Ch5, join with a slst to the first ch to make a loop.

Picture1
Round 1 - ch1, (sc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, sc) in the loop FOUR times, slst to the first sc made. {Now remove hook from loop, take your hook and insert it from behind and pull the loop from the front to the back and continue on the Round 2} (4 petals total)

Picture2

 The Design Wars alumni thought it would be fun to put something together for the holidays. So we are hosting a 12 Days of Christmas {Design Wars Style!} Celebration! There will be FREE patterns and lots of great pattern giveaways from some of your favorite designers!
Here is my contribution…the Hot Cocoa Mug Ornament! Although since I’ve made it and I see it just chilling on my counter top I realize that it would be adorable displayed ALL year round! I can see making a few of these for a little gal to play with or as some added decoration to the kitchen. :)

slst – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc - half double crochet

NOTE 1: The mug and the cocoa sections are worked in a continuous round. Do not join.
NOTE 2: You can add a piece of ribbon to the handle or use the handle itself to hang from your tree. It’s so cute you may want to keep it out all year round!

MUG – (use teal yarn, or whatever you choose)
Ch2.
Round 1 – work 6sc into the 2nd chain from hook, DO NOT JOIN. (6)
Round 2 – 2sc in each st around. (12)

Ch3, slst to first ch. Fasten off. Use the 2 tails to tie each marshmallow to your cocoa piece. Trim all loose ends.

Assembling the 2 pieces:
Line up the stitches. (There are 24 in each.)
Grab the yarn that you didn’t fasten off from the first piece and sc though BOTH loops of BOTH pieces around to connect. (Work about half way around then start filling with poly-fill.) Work to the last 3 sts and fill the mug all the way. (Be sure to “over stuff” it slightly so it pushes the cocoa up a little.) Finish working the last 3 sts, slst to join. Now slst all the way around. DO NOT JOIN.

HANDLE:
Ch8, count 7 rounds straight down, slst around a st. Ch1, turn.
Slst in next 4 sts back up the ch, sc in next ch, 2hdc in next, sc in next, slst in last ch, then slst into the mug. Fasten Off and weave in your ends.

Frayed Knot’s 15 min Coffee Sleeve!

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Looking for a FAST and EASY project? I have just the thing! These coffee sleeves are great for the coffee (or tea ;) ) lovers in your life. Pair it with a $1 reusable Starbucks cup and you have the perfect little gift.

I’m calling it Frayed Knot’s 15 min Coffee Sleeve because that’s how long it takes me to work one up! I would say the “15″ minutes will vary with everyone BUT either way the results are FAST, FUN, and FUNCTIONAL! :)

The lovely Alessandra from Just Be Happy whipped up 10 THAT night! She was gracious enough to allow me to use her beautiful picture <3 She used Patons Classic Wool to create these beauties.

Cup Cozy

Materials needed:
Any worsted weight yarn
Size H 5.0mm hook
Stitch Marker
1 Button (optional)
Yarn sewing needle

Gauge: 4hdc = 1 inch

Abbreviations used:
slst – slip stitch
st(s) – stitch(es)
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc - half double crochet

Size: Measures 4.25″ wide x 3.25″ tall.
*If you want a taller sleeve just repeat Round 7 until you reach your desired height.

NOTE: All the hdc stitches (except in Round 1) and the sc stitches in Round 8 are worked in the 3rd loop. To locate the 3rd loop, find the front loop and back loop. Now look directly below the back loop on the back side of the stitch. That horizontal “bar” is the 3rd loop that you will be working into.

Ch28, join with a slst. (Be sure not to twist the loop.)
Round 1 - ch1, hdc in same st and around. DO NOT JOIN. (Attach stitch marker to help keep track of your rounds.) (28 sts total)
Round 2 thru 5(Remember the NOTE!) hdc around. (28 sts total)

I would try and try but something would always seem “off”. So I was thrilled when I worked up this brim on the Emersyn Newsboy Hat and it was PERFECT!… in my opinion at least ;)

Perfect 'Buttoned' Cowl Pattern

When I designed the original Perfect Cowl I had no idea how successful it would be! I’m blown away by the attention it has received. I truly believe it helped make Frayed Knot…well…Frayed Knot! I LOVE the design and have made a TON of them as gifts. They work up so fast :)

I have received a lot of wonderful feedback about the pattern and it’s so encouraging to hear how much people love it! With ONE exception ~ people want a buttoned version of the cowl. Apparently there are quite a few ladies out there that don’t want to mess up their hair by slipping a cowl over their head! ;)

With those requests in mind I got to work and this is what I came up with! It’s a whole brand new pattern. You will love the versatility of this piece!
