Crochet Society Box 35 | Argon Triangular Scarf

I’m really excited to share with you today one of my favourite designs of recent times! In the latest Crochet Society Box (No. 35) I’ve got a brand new triangular scarf pattern for you called the Argon Scarf.

Box 35 has now officially been unboxed, by the lovely Sarah-Jayne of Bella Coco, which means that the box should now be with subscribers and I can now share with you all the details of the box and the design.

It’s called the Argon Scarf as the theme for this particular box was ‘Neon Lights’ with shades of purple yarn. Argon is actually the gas used in neon signs to produce shades of purple or lavender which just perfectly matched with the yarn that is part of the box.

I’ve been having a bit of a love affair of the textures of puff stitches lately, and my idea of using puffs in this design was represent pops of neon gas.

For this design I used 2 x 100g Bella Coco Yarn which is a DK (8ply / Light weight) yarn that comes in 100g (210m) balls and is a really soft. The shades that I got to use were so pretty in their own right that I’m glad they got their own showcase in this half and half design.

I used a 3.25mm hook for this particular design, and I would recommend the use of a row counter and stitch markers to not only mark your first stitches of a row, but to also help keep track of the increase / decrease sides of the scarf – handily you get both a row counter and a stitch marker as an extra gift in your box.

Textured with bright splashes of colour, the Argon Triangle Scarf, with colour matched tassels, is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd this season!

As well as my design in this box there are several Tunisian crochet patterns to compliment the Tunisian hook that comes with the box; there is a table runner, a pom pom hat and a faux ‘neon sign’ making up the fab collection of projects.

Happily Hooked Magazine | Beelinda the Bee Fairy

Can you be ‘fairy’ certain that bees are not fairies in disguise? After all appearances can bee deceiving! With that intriguing thought I’d like to introduce you to Beelinda the Bee Fairy – the un-bee-lievably cute little fairy doll that’s sure to bring a smile to your face!

When she’s not off frolicking in the flowers she’ll be ready to enchant anyone who sees her. And her pattern is available now in the June 2022 edition of Happily Hooked Magazine.

Beelinda is most definitely the bee’s knees when it comes to imaginative play, or as a decorative addition to your home, and she’s sure to become a firm favourite with anyone that wants to sprinkle some of their very own floral fairy magic around.

For my version of Beelinda I used Ricorumi DK with a 3mm hook (closest US size D/3). If you are not not familiar with the yarn it is 100% Cotton which comes in 25g [57.5 meters] balls. I used six colours in total; just 1 ball of Nude (023), Saffron (063), Black (060), White (001), Nougat (056) and Fuchsia (014). I love Ricorumi DK for amigurumi as it comes in the cute little balls in loads of different colours so I can usually find the shades that I’m looking for.

It retails for about £1.25 per ball (approx. $1.67) so it’s perfect for when you need just a small amount of a colour – though it’s hard not to just want all 80 shades!

The only other materials you would need are 2 x 8mm black safety eyes, toy stuffing, black sewing thread, a yarn needle and some blusher (optional, but it’s just normal makeup).

If you love bees or fairies then you need to add this cute crochet fairy doll to your collection! Beelinda is just waiting to share her magic with you.

The pattern is available now! Happily Hooked & Pattern Pack Pro Are TWO monthly US digital magazine assembled by makers for makers and you can find out more details about it on the Happily Hooked Magazine website.

With it being a US publication patterns are written using US crochet terminology – if you are not sure how that differs you may find my post British vs. American Crochet Terms: What’s the difference? of use.

Are you looking for some new summer favourites? Well Let’s Get Crafting Knitting and Crochet magazine have several fun options that you might want to look into – including a couple of new patterns from me; and I’m delighted to say that my Red Squirrel is issue 141’s cover star!

My little red squirrel, with his stripy hat and cute little bowler hat were very fun to make. I used every colour in the yarn kit (which comes with the magazine) and I especially enjoyed using the variegated yarn to make the tail – colourwork has never been easier!

This fun amigurumi would make a great gift for an animal lover, or how about a cute decoration in a woodland themed nursery? Got the magazine and going to make him later, then save the pattern to your favourites on Ravelry at the link below.

❤️ SAVE THE RED SQUIRREL PATTERN ON RAVELRY ❤️

Speaking of nurseries, my second pattern in issue 141 is a bead and ball mobile. I have a bit of a thing about wood, I love it! So for this project I mixed crochet with some wooden beads and a wooden hoop, with some crochet balls, in several different sizes, hanging off with embroidery thread.

The mobile is very easy to make and would make a great beginner project, in fact the whole process of making up the mobile was very enjoyable. And if you don’t have little ones to make it for how about making it for your craft room or conservatory!

Happily Hooked Magazine | Pastel Pop Shawl

Ahhh May! It’s a month of UK bank holidays and getting that summer feeling as the weather (hopefully) gets sunnier! I don’t know about you but the months seem to be zooming by, and I’ve not even had chance to tell you yet about my new design called the ‘Pastel Pop Shawl’ which is available in Issue 98 of Happily Hooked Magazine.

Pastels are the perfect hues to compliment summer neutrals, and are classic enough to wear year after year, now you can claim your pastel powers with the Pastel Pop wrap. Both in-style and with beautiful drape, the bright and summery pastel shades are combined with interesting texture to create a beautiful modern wrap.

The Pastel Pop wrap is a fun one to make, it’s a large rectangular wrap featuring interspersed panels of popcorn stitch, so it’s got some lovely texture, and then I’ve combined it with some crossed stitches, and with the colour changing in too it makes for a rhythmic pattern with enough to keep you interested.

Now I wouldn’t call myself much of a pastel kind of person, I do so love a bright rainbow, that said, every now and then, I do get a bit of a hankering for some softer tones. I’d recently used some King Cole Cotton Soft DK in a project and as I was impressed with how soft and flexible it was for cotton. They have a nice range of pastels colours and it made me wonder how it would work if it was used for a wrap.

If you’re not familiar with King Cole Cotton Soft it’s a 100% cotton DK (8ply / Light Worsted) yarn that comes in 100g balls (210m / 229yds). It’s available in 21 different colours which include a lot of pastels, with a few bright shades, and it’s often used for baby makes and summer clothes. The recommended hook size for the yarn is a 4mm and that’s what I used for my wrap.

The finished wrap is heavier than a acrylic shawl might be, but there is that wonderful drape and the stitch definition is just marvellous (it always seems to be with cotton!).

Pastels are certainly optimistic colours I think, these bring pastels are sure to lift your mood all year round! But I do also wonder how this wrap might look in other colour combinations; think dark greys or black with neon’s, or a neutral maybe with hand dyed popcorn sections – oooo, the possibilities!

The pattern is available now! Happily Hooked & Pattern Pack Pro Are TWO monthly US digital magazine assembled by makers for makers and you can find out more details about it on the Happily Hooked Magazine website.

Crochet Now Magazine | Geo Zing Wrap

For the latest issue of Crochet Now magazine (Issue 81) I’ve paired the popular corner to corner (C2C) technique with a bold geometric design in a new wrap called ‘Geo Zing’.

Picture of C2C Geo Zing Wrap featured in Issue 81 of Crochet Now Magazine
© Practical Publishing 2022 (Crochet Now Issue 81)

If you’re not familiar C2C crochet, it’s a stitch that creates a solid fabric by creating ‘squares’ which is worked on the diagonal. Once you’ve learnt the C2C stitch it’s easy to work and it’s fantastic for creating shapes (or pictures) with crochet.

Changing colours might seem a bit scary, but once you perfected your technique it’s more about keeping your yarn organised so that you don’t get in a tangle which can seem like the tricky part!

Picture of C2C Geo Zing Wrap shown on mannikin

I’ve actually kept this design to just two colours so as to keep tangling issues to a minimum! I used 2 balls of Scheepjes Whirlette in Tasty Treat (878) and Rose (859) with a 3.25mm (US D/3) hook. It’s a yarn cake made from 40% Acrylic / 60% Cotton with a weight of 100 grams [455 meters length].

Unlike the bigger sister Whirls, which you might be familiar with, Whirlettes are balls of solid colour, fabulous for mixing with a Whirl to extend a Whirl cake project or perfect for using on their own like I have.

I then used some matching Scheepjes Catona (in Cyan shade 397, and Tulip shade 222) for the tassels at either end. Catona is 100% mercerised cotton and comes in 10g, 25g or 50g balls, it has a soft delicate sheen that I thought would work brilliantly in a fringe.

This striking geometric print wrap will certainly add a zing of colour to your wardrobe as the sun starts to shine – and would make an ideal cover up for spring evenings or summer parties.

Crochet Now Magazine | Flora Filet Wrap

If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’ll know that I have a bit of a thing about filet crochet – I just think it’s such a fun crochet technique, and it just so happens I’ve got a brand new filet crochet wrap design in the latest issue of Crochet Now magazine.

© Practical Publishing 2022 (Crochet Now Issue 80)

The Flora Filet wrap is a one ball shawl that creates a wearable bouquet! Worked in the filet crochet technique the wrap features create a large stylised flower pattern in a long light shawl that is easy to style.

With regards to filet crochet I love to try and think of designs that are perhaps a bit different from the idea that filet crochet is great for doily’s or mats with tiny thread and a tiny hook. For this latest wrap I wanted to go big and bold with a vibrant oversized flower motif – and I love how it turned out.

For this wrap I used a Scheepjes Whirl in Pink to Wink (Shade 552) with a 3.25mm (US D/3) hook. I used pretty much all of the 215g (1000m) of the yarn cake, which is a 4ply (Fingering / Sock Weight) yarn with a blend of 60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic, to make this lovely lightweight wrap.

It’s a perfect pattern to use with your favourite gradient yarn cake; for this version, though you could of course make it with any 4ply (or light DK / sport weight yarn).

The Flora Filet wrap would make a lovely addition to your spring / summer wardrobe to lift any outfit and make you the pick of the bunch!

If you are new to filet, you might find my post Top Tips for Filet Crochet useful to look at first, but this wrap has a lovely repetition of easy stitches that any level of crocheter could tackle.

Happily Hooked Magazine | Colour Wheel Cowl

I’ve got a lovely bright new pattern to share with you today! A stylish and easy cowl, made in a range of lively colours will definitely banish any lingering winter blues.

Allow me to introduce The Colour Wheel Cowl (aka The Color Wheel Cowl for my American friends) which is out now in the latest issue of Happily Hooked magazine.

Using a minimum of 12 colours The Colour Wheel Cowl has been designed with mini balls of yarn in mind; such as small skein yarn advents, or it would also make a great stash buster project with each colour using (approximately) only 20g / 56m for each section.

For my cowl I used Scheepjes Softfun it’s a 60% cotton, 40% acrylic blend which usually comes in 50g / 140m balls in a whopping 89 different shades. It’s a yarn I’ve used before specifically for The Stitch Story CAL and for my Unicorn Booties, and if you’re not familiar with it, it’s as soft as it’s name implies!

Not too long ago Scheepjes released some Softfun Mini Colour Packs and I knew I needed to try one! Available in five different colourways; Pastel, Jewel, Cloud, Rainbow & Rich they all looked lovely, but it was the Rainbow tones I went for in the end.

Did you know that studies show that rainbow colours are high in saturation and contrast, which creates an energising effect for humans! The brighter and lighter the colours, the more happy and optimistic it will make you feel! Maybe that’s why I have a bit of a rainbow obsession! Again and again I find myself drawn to the vibrant colours of a rainbow because they are just so cheerful, and give me such a boost when I’m working with them.

The cowl is a sort of sampler of stitches for the 12 sections, 7 different stitch patterns are used in total, with the 7th repeated 6 times to tie the cowl together. It would be a fab project for a beginner to learn new stitches, or for a more established crocheter as a lovely mindful project.

I’ve used a 4.5mm hook (US size 7) to help give the cowl a nice drape, and I would suggest that a couple of stitch markers are useful to add to the start and end of each row to help you keep track of stitches.

Although the pattern is for one size (which should fit most adults) at 75cm long x 23cm wide (29.5” Width 9”) it’s large enough to double over to keep your neck extra snuggly.

The resulting cowl is a lovely bold and bright textured cowl that will cheer you up in the gloomiest weather!

Crochet Now Magazine | Clangers Mobile

I hope it doesn’t seem a little frivolous to be posting about crochet (especially with what is currently happening in the Ukraine). Whilst I am obviously extremely concerned about what is unfolding in the world, for me crochet is my comfort and distraction for my anxiety. And actually one of the patterns I’ve created for the latest issue of Crochet Now magazine was a lovely nostalgic trip down memory lane.

I’m delighted to say I had the opportunity of designing a sweet “Clanger” themed mobile for Issue 79. If you aren’t familiar with The Clangers, it’s a classic BBC British stop-motion pre-school children’s tv series about a family of knitted mice-like creatures who live on a small moon-like blue planet.

Now I’m not old enough to remember the original series (which ran between 1969-74), but when I had my eldest daughter my mother-in-law bought us a DVD of The Clangers, so I became well acquainted with the adorable creatures and the gentle storylines, and became rather fond of the sweet whistled dialogue that typifies the characters of show.

And if you have young people at home you may have seen the The Clangers re-vamp (2015 to present), which I’ve enjoyed watching with my youngest. There’s just something so appealing about these handmade looking knitted mice!

But if like me, you don’t knit as well as you should like, and you are a Clanger fan, or you have Clanger friends or family, then you’ll be as happy as I was to be able to crochet my own version.

On the mobile we have Tiny Clanger, who is kind and gentle by nature. She’s the youngest of the Clanger family, and so seemed the perfect character to showcase in the centre of the mobile.

Then on the arms of the mobile we have the blue planet, complete with dustbin lid openings, and a froglet (those small orange aliens who traditionally travel around in a top hat!). Finally I’ve added some moon shapes and sparkly stars to help send your little one into a sweet slumber.

For my Clanger mobile I used some of my favourite Ricorumi DK with a 3mm hook in 9 different colours, and also included some sparkly Rico Creative Lame DK for the stars and parts of the blue planet.

If you are not not familiar with Ricorumi DK the yarn it is 100% Cotton which comes in 25g [57.5 meters] balls, it’s perfect yarn for amigurumi making as it comes in the cute little balls in over 80 different shades so I can usually find perfect colours to match my project.

Aside from the yarn and hook the only other things you will need are; a DIY Mobile, Black embroidery thread, 2 x 8mm black safety eyes, 2 x 6mm black safety eyes, toy stuffing, stitch markers and yarn needles.

Crochet Now Magazine | Milo the Mindful Moose

The latest issue of Crochet Now magazine is focusing on the importance of being mindful and there’s nothing more mindful that a bit of quality ‘me’ time crocheting! So if you are looking for a new project to get lost in the stitches, then how about Milo the Mindful Moose!

© Practical Publishing 2022

Milo the Moose enjoys getting out his yoga mat and unwinding after a busy day! Are you interested in yoga or mediation? I used to enjoy going to yoga classes before I had children and have recently been considering trying to find a local class again that I could go to.

But of course I also use the rhythmic motions of crochet as a conscious way to slow down a bit, be present in the moment with my stitches and relieve stress – and that’s what Milo is all about!

Enjoy taking the time to hook up Milo and his tasselled yoga mat, he makes a quick and easy project and would be the perfect gift for any yoga loving family and friends.

For my Milo I used some of my favourite Ricorumi DK with a 3mm hook. If you are not not familiar with the yarn it is 100% Cotton which comes in 25g [57.5 meters] balls. I went for calming teal and brown tones, just 1 ball of Wood (073), Cream (002), Aqua (074), Slate (080) and Teal (040). I love Ricorumi DK for amigurumi as it comes in the cute little balls in loads of different colours so I can usually find the shades that I’m looking for.
