Another Angelece Blanket…

I made this blanket a few weeks ago now. If it looks familiar, it’s because it is my Angelece blanket, which has been a free pattern here on my blog for a good while now. It has proven to be a popular pattern in the past and I have really enjoyed re-visiting it. I love this pattern for its simplicity. You can certainly put your feet up and get lost in a box set and still hook this as you go, which makes it a pleasurable project. This blanket is also the perfect introduction to filet crochet, so if you have never done a bit of filet before, you should definitely try this pattern out.

I used this aran / worsted weight yarn which I found in Hobbycraft. It is beautifully soft and it is made from mostly recycled bottles…I still don;t understand how it feels so soft and squishy!!!

So here are the pattern details, for this blanket I added an additional round of double crochet – UK (single crochet – US) to make a wider border and I made my tassels super chunky by wrapping them more. I actually cant remember how many balls of yarn I used…I think it was 6…which works out at 300g and I have some left over too!

Mini Heart Beanie…Free Pattern

This is a super cute and quick make, so perfect to hook if you have an upcoming craft fair or if you wanted to make in time for Valentines Day as a treat for yourself or as a Galentine’s gift for your Bestie! The pattern is only available in adult size at the moment, hopefully I can carve out some more time to grade it for other sizes.

I get lots of questions about where I get my labels for my hats…the answer is Etsy! My labels are cork labels made from 100% sustainable material that is vegan. There are lots of custom sellers, so if you are looking for some labels or tags go and check them out.

The pattern is suitable for beginners and just uses a double crochet stitch (single crochet stitch), and some decrease stitches. It is important not to have your tension very tight or the teeny, tiny hearts become pinched. I used Stylecraft Softie which is a chunky yarn blend 20% wool 80%acrylic. I did try with some other chunky yarn, but I got the best results with the Softie, it just gives a subtle amount of drape which feels lovely to wear.

You can also purchase a printable PDF of this pattern which is available in both UK and US crochet terms over in my Etsy shop for less than a cup of coffee which you can access just here

You will need:                          

6.5mm hook

Stitch Markers (optional)

Scissors

Darning needle

Tape measure

Faux fur pom or you could make your own.

Yarn – chunky / bulky see further below for recommended yarns.

20% superwash wool 80% acrylic blend

Adult –  approx. 95g

Main colour – approx..80g

Accent colour approx. 15g

Size Guide.

Adult – to fit head circ. 22” / 55.8cms

Measurements are approximate and I advise you measure the intended head wherever possible.  This beanie allows for a 2” / 5cm negative ease (the amount of stretch)

Stitch Abbreviations.

Ch – chain

Slst – slip stitch

Dc – double crochet

Hs – Heart stitch

Dec – decrease

BLO – work st into the back loop only (see photo at back of pattern)

Dc: Insert hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook.

Hs: Insert hook under both loops of stitch, in accent colour – yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on hook (1st loop in main colour, 2nd loop in accent colour), in main colour – yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook to complete st.  See top tip below! See Pic 1 – 4

Dec: decrease st worked over 2 stitches: insert hook under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on your hook, insert hook into next st, yarn over and pull through so there are 3 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

Top Tip:

When working the heart stitch and you yarn over and pull through in accent colour, pull loop up a little higher than you would for a regular dc stitch as this helps to keep the heart lying flat instead of pulled too tight.

Pattern Notes.

This pattern is written using UK crochet terminology and the stitch abbreviations can be found below. 

Ch1 does not count as a stitch throughout the pattern unless otherwise stated. Repeats are marked by asterisks *.  

The hat is worked by making the ribbed brim and joining one end to the other to form a circle. The main body of the hat is then worked in rounds.

When working Rounds 3 and 5 and subsequent repeats carry non-working yarn along the round (see pic 5)

When working rounds 4 and 6 and subsequent repeats drop accent colour yarn and pick up again on next round

Top Tip:

When working a dc in round above heart st, insert hook into side of heart as shown in Pic 6 as this will make it easier.

Yarn Suggestions.

Stylecraft Softie chunky is the recommended yarn for the pattern, but here are some similar substitutes…

King Cole Timeless Chunky

King Cole Big Value Baby Soft Chunky

King Cole Shadow Chunky

Red Heart Gemstone

Bernat Wavelength

Gauge

It is very important to check your gauge to ensure your beanie will fit.

To do this make a gauge swatch in the yarn you will be using for the body of the hat.  If this matches the gauge, you’re good to go!   If your swatch is too big, try using a smaller hook to obtain correct gauge.  If your swatch is too small, try using a larger hook to obtain correct gauge.

Using chunky / bulky yarn swatch 11dc x 14 rows = 4” x4” (10cm x 10cm)

In main colour

Row 1: Ch8, dc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch along, turn do not ch1 (7dc)

Row 2 – 62: IN BLO dc in each st across, turn do not ch1 (7dc)

Slst row 62 to beginning row to form a circle. Turn brim inside out so the seam is on the inside. We will now be working in rounds around the brim of the hat.

Working with right side facing you in main colour

Round 1: ch1, 64dc evenly around top of brim – 2dc in first and last st then aim to place a dc at the top of each rib, join with a slst to 1st dc (64dc)  

Round 2: ch1, dc in each st around, join with a slst to 1st dc (64dc)

Round 3: ch1, dc in same st, hs * dc, hs * repeat around, last st is a hs, slst to top 1st dc (32dc / 32hs)

Round 4: repeat round 2

Round 5: ch1, hs in same st, dc * hs, dc * repeat around, last st is a dc, slst to top of 1st hs (32hs / 32 dc)

Round 6: repeat round 2

Repeat Rounds 3 – 6: 2 more times(total of 8 rounds)

Round 15: repeat round 3

Round 16: repeat round 2

Round 18: ch1,dc in same st,decrease * dc,decrease * in each st around, skip last st, slst into 1st dc (21dc / 21dec)

Round 19: ch1,dc in same st,decrease * dc,decrease * in each st around, st, slst into 1st dc (14dc / 14dec)

Round 20: ch1,decrease in each st around, skip last st (13dec)

Hat measures 8.5” from brim to crown

Fasten off cutting yarn leaving a long tail approx. 20cms from hat.  Thread darning needle and weave in and out of the top loops of last round. Pull the end tight to gather and secure with a few stitches. Weave in any loose ends. Now add your pom (see end of pattern for details)

Add pom

Add a faux fur pom to complete the look. Or alternatively make your own pom. I added a Trimits pompom as they tie into the hat easily, which makes them really easy to remove for when you want to launder your beanie.

If you are making your own pom you have a couple of options. You could use a pom pom maker however, I favour making my pompoms using the method my Grandma taught me; using 2 pieces of cardboard.  I like my pompoms to be really full and lush and so I wrap each pompom with a minimum of 3 layers of yarn.  My card circles have an outer diameter of  approx. 4.5” / 11cms.

Here is a useful link for making pompoms with 2 discs of card https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXFCO3LBJss

TOP TIP:  If making your own poms leave long tails when you tie your pompoms off as it will make attaching them to your hat much easier.  If your pompoms are in a different colour to your hat, tie your pompoms off with the main colour of the hat as it makes weaving in the ends much neater.

REMEMBER: IF MAKING YOUR OWN POM YOU WILL NEED MORE YARN THAN STATED IN THIS PATTERN.

Happy New Year…

crochet deer lovey, crochet pattern

Happy New Year to you and welcome 2023.

What did you do to celebrate?

Don’t judge me…but I went as far as the living room. We watched TV, I crocheted of course, drank a few glasses of bubbles, ate good food and fell asleep…only to be woken 5 minutes before midnight to watch the fireworks on the TV from London. Not so exciting, but Mr R had the lurgy, so it suited us this year, especially as the grown up Robins were out celebrating with their tribes.

Have you set your plans? Your resolutions? Let me know what they are if you are happy to share…you may inspire me! I have set some plans here at the Nest, you may be pleased to know. I have lots of pattern ideas as well as lots of plans to share free patterns and tutorials with you.

I am currently writing a new pattern for a bottom up beanie, which is a completely new way to make beanies for me. I’m just doing the grading, so it can be made for all the family. Here’s a sneak peek…

I have treated myself to some new yarn too, so I will show you that as soon as I take some photos. But for now, I will leave you with some crochet highlights from last year.

Crochet Baby Teethers…Free Pattern

Today I’m going to share with you my amazingly simple pattern for making Yarny Crochet Teething Rings. The pattern is suitable for a beginner and they literally take 15 minutes to make.

A word on yarn choice

I have opted to use Drops Safran 100% cotton as it is not only affordable, but it has a great colour pallete too.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is written using UK crochet terminology and the stitch abbreviations can be found below. I have included US terminology in brackets if you wish to convert.

Repeats are marked by asterisks *.

Stitch Abbreviations:

Ch- chain / chain (US)                               St – stitch / stitch (US)

Slst – slip stitch / slip stitch (US)              Dtr – Double treble / treble crochet (US)

Dc – double crochet / single crochet (US)   BLO – back loop only

Petal Teething Ring

Begin by securing yarn around the teething ring with a slst (this does not count as a st)

28dc around teething ring

ch1 and turn,

miss a st, *9dtr in next st, miss 2 sts, slst into next st, miss 2 sts* repeat * – * 3 more times, 9dtr in next st, miss a st, slst into last st.

Because you are cramming 9dtr into one st, it is easy to miscount the 2 missed sts immediately after; as the 1st missed st tends to hide under the petal made, so if your stitch count isn’t working for you check this first!

Fasten off and weave in loose ends.

Sew long sides of rectangle together around the teething ring, using a whip st. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Jubilee Bunting…free crochet pattern

With Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee just around the corner I thought I’d share my progress on my Jubilee decorations and share the pattern with you. After all what good is a garden party or afternoon tea without a bit of bunting?

To make the bunting flags please see my previous post just here They are simple to make and the lace trim gives a pretty, vintage vibe. What’s more if you tie your embellishments to the flags rather than sew them on, the bunting can be recycled and dressed up again for the next occasion / holiday season in your calendar…clever eh!

I wanted my Jubilee bunting to be traditional in colour , so of course it had to be red, white and blue, but I wanted it to look pretty and almost understated, so you won’t find any navy or lipstick red here! instead I chose a more muted red tone and coupled it with a mid blue. I also wanted to incorporate the Union Jack and found these gorgeous little buttons, which again are more subtle in tone.

Yarn: Drops Saffran in cherry and denim blue

Buttons: Buttonboxdevon

Pattern Notes

This pattern is written using UK crochet terminology and the stitch abbreviations can be found below. I have included US terminology in brackets if you wish to convert.

Stitch Abbreviations:

Ch- chain / chain (US)                               St – stitch / stitch (US)

Slst – slip stitch / slip stitch (US)              Tr – treble / double crochet (US)

Dc – double crochet / single crochet (US)  

Dc: Insert hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook.                  

Tr: Yarn over hook, insert hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 3 loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through last 2 loops on hook.

Large Jubilee Rose

In cherry

Leave a long tail, ch 50

Tr in 2nd ch from hook, tr in each ch along, dc in last ch

Ch3, turn

2tr in same space, 3tr in each st a long, dc in last st. Fasten off leaving a long tail

Small Jubilee Rose

In denim blue

Leave a long tail, ch 33

Tr in 2nd ch from hook, tr in each ch along, dc in last ch

Ch3, turn

2tr in same space, 3tr in each st a long, dc in last st. Fasten off leaving a long tail

To assemble

Spiral flower in an anti-clockwise direction with one long tail at the front of the rose and one long tail at the back of the rose. With a darning needle take the front tail through to the back of the rose to secure centre petal. Now make several passes of the needle at back of the rose making sure you catch all the layers of the rose. With other tail, thread darning needle and make several more passes at the back of the rose. Tie tails together in a knot to secure. Attach to bunting by passing both tails with a darning needle through to back of flag and tie neatly so tails tuck neatly behind flag and can be easily removed when you wish to re-dress your bunting. Add buttons to string in between flags with hot glue / glue gun.

If you like this pattern and would like me to continue to share my patterns please give me a clap and follow me on instagram

I would love to see your Jubilee Roses, so please tag me in your makes on social media and I will share your lovely makes.

Dress Me Up Bunting Free Pattern…

Hey lovely people, I wanted to share this crochet pattern for this beautiful, understated bunting, which has a distinct vintage vibe. I’ve called it ‘dress me up bunting’ because the whole idea behind this bunting is that you can dress it up for different celebrations with add-on decorations and then re-dress it all over again…think crochet flowers, faux flowers, ribbons, buttons etc.

I didn’t want to have to make bunting over and over again to fit themes and colour schemes, so I thought I’d make some pretty bunting flags which look great on their own and then I can dress the flags accordingly and temporarily, making them just about as versatile as they can be.

I think this bunting looks so pretty and I have had fun trying it out around the nest. I have strung them for now on some hessian garden twine by simply pulling the twine through a few stitches at the back of each flag.

I really wanted to share the pattern with you, so keep reading if you are itching to make your own. The pattern is quick to make and would make a lovely gift for a crafty friend. The pattern is simple and ideal for beginners, using half treble crochet (UK) or half double crochet (US) and some decrease stitches.

I already have plans to dress this bunting for the Queens Platinum Jubilee celebrations which are just a few weeks away now…so watch this space as I am currently hooking some Jubilee roses.

You will need to gather some simple supplies if you want to hook up your own ‘dress me up bunting’.

I used Drops Safran cotton yarn in off white. I made 7 flags from 50g and by keeping short tails.

A 3.5mm hook, scissors and darning needle

I chose a simple white lace with a depth of 4cms. I used 22cms per flag, so just over a 1m 50cms for the 7 flags I made.

I also used a glue gun to attach the lace, but you could also sew this on if you prefer.

You will also need some ribbon or twine to string your flags with.

Don’t forget to tag me with your bunting makes using #dressmeupbunting @yarnyrobin I would love to share your lovely makes!

Stitches Used.

Ch: chain st

st: stitch

Htr: Yarn over before inserting hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, insert hook, yarn over and pull through so there are 3 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook.

Htr-dec: Yarn over before inserting hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, insert hook, yarn over and pull through so there are 3 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over, insert hook into next st, yarn over and pull through so there are 4 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

The pattern is worked in rows and you will need to turn your work at the end of each row. Turning ch1 does not count as a st

Ch 31

R1: htr in 2nd ch from hook, htr in each ch along, ch1 turn (30htr)

R2 – 4: htr in each st along, ch1 turn (30htr)

R18: htr-dec, htr-dec, ch1 turn (2htr)

R19: htr-dec, (1htr) fasten off and weave in ends.

Use glue gun to attach lace across the top of the flag, making sure to secure a small overlap of lace at the back of the flag to give a neat edge. Alternatively, you could sew the lace in place with a needle and thread.

Make as many flags as you desire and simply string with ribbon or twine by hooking it through a few stitches at the back of the flag, behind the lace.

To make the flags hang nicely I hooked the twine through at 3 points on each flag, on the left, the right and in the centre.

You can now dress your bunting up with whatever you choose. In order to dress this bunting up and down attach any accessories so that they can easily be removed, that way your bunting can be dressed and re-dressed to your hearts content.
