The Holidays are on their way!

The holidays are coming!!! There is no stopping it, no matter how hard we try sometimes. For me, personally, I LOVE the holidays. The lights, the decorations, the magic of the season, and yes, the COLD weather!!!

I finally picked up my “pen and paper” and made this wonderful little afghan pattern. It was designed to be worked in either C2C or the Bobble Stitch. If you choose to use SC or something similar, the finished size will be fairly small. It is 55w x 65h.

You will be able to find this pattern:\

Its Been Awhile, Let me update you

Its been awhile since I have posted. Bad Blogger!!! I have been a little busy. I have finished 2 awesome projects & wanted to share with you. First, I completed this awesome hooded unicorn blanket from MJ’s Off the Hook Designs. Hooded Unicorn Blanket

 

Let me tell you, the child size blanket worked up so quickly. It uses a HUGE hook, a size I’ve never used before, so I had to adjust my hooking style. Regardless of my hooking style, this was amazing to work with. I used the recommended yarn & colors. It turned out amazingly soft, squishy, & super warm!!! I cannot wait until its new owner receives it. Its already arrived, but its a gift so it has not been opened yet!!!

I really cannot say enough good things about this pattern. It was so easy to follow and as long as your gauge is correct, you will have no problems attaining the proper size you need. I only changed the horn a bit. I didn’t like how many holes it had between the stitches when following the stitch that it used. I think it still turned out quite nice!!

The Jersey Beanie

Its been a pretty mild winter here in New Jersey, but that hasn’t stopped the winter hat addiction I seem to have. I love hats. This is one of my favorites so far. Its a super squishy, really soft & warm hat that is quick and easy to make. It works up ridiculously fast. I made 3 different hats in one day!!! I crochet slowly too! If you’re ready for the pattern, keep on reading!! You can download an AD FREE pdf from my shop or from ravelry for $1.00.

The Jersey Beanie

By At WIPS End Crochet – A Work In Progress

February 3, 2017

The Jersey hat is a two color fully ribbed beanie that looks great and is soft & warm. This hat works up quickly, uses 3 colors in total, less than 1/2 skein of each! It’s perfect if you have partial skeins laying around. It is also worked from the top down.

Supplies:

  • Hobby Lobby I love this yarn in 3 colors or any other worsted(4) Weight Yarn- 1 ball of each color
  • J/6.0mm Crochet Hook
  • K/6.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Pompom Maker
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle

Crochet Terms used are US/American

  • Ch– Chain
  • M/R – Magic Ring/Magic Circle
  • SlSt– Slip Stitch
  • dc – Double Crochet
  • Fpdc– Front Post Double Crochet
  • sc–Single Crochet
  • SSC – Split Single Crochet
  • F/O – Finish Off
  • C1 – Color #1
  • C2–Color #2
  • C3 – Color #3
GAUGE: Gauge is important to attain proper size.This swatch is completed by using the following pattern:row 1 dc, row 2Fpdc, row 3bpdc repeat row 2 & 3. When measuring for gauge height, turn your swatch over. You will be able to better distinguish rows. * See gauge photos on last page

Gauge is, using 6.5 mm hook and I love this yarn (4) is:
2 inches = 6sts& 4 rows

Pattern Notes:

*The Split Single Crochet (also called the wainscoat stitch or the center single crochet)is performed by inserting your hook in the “V” of the stitch from the previous round/row. Y/O pull up a loop, Y/O pull through both loops. It is essentially a “SC” but it is not done in the traditional loops of the stitch. –see figure 1

Ch1, Ch2do NOT count as stitches

In this pattern, I join to the 2nd fpdc in the round. This moves the CH2 to the inside of the hat. It also creates a seamless beanie, while not “messing” with the final dimensions. Each fpdc is started around the 1st fpdc from previous round (see figure 2)

Pattern photos are at the bottom of this post Continue reading “The Jersey Beanie”

Sleepy Owl Graph

Its a sleepy day here at At WIPS End. We’re in the middle of a Nor’ Easter, which is making me want to just cuddle up and go to sleep!! This cute little sleepy owl is 50 x 60 stitches and can be done using any type of yarn. It depends on how big you want the afghan to be. This graph was designed to be completed in either C2C (Corner to Corner) or Bobble Stitch. Personally, I think this one would be amazing done in bobble stitch. If anyone completes this one using that stitch, please post a photo of it on my facebook page. I would love to see any versions completed. I love to see others visions. Please share with me!

Peanut Butter Jelly Time!!

pbjHappy New Year!! I am happy to share with you my very first pattern of 2017!!!

You’re the Peanut Butter to My Jelly! This afghan says it all!! With Valentines day coming up, why not tell your significant other that they are the PB to your J?

Pattern requires:
Several Colors worsted weight yarn (Red Heart or similar)**
Recommended 5.0 or 5.5mm hook size or Similar Afghan Hook

Finished Size (In stitches):
50w X 60h

Pattern Notes:
You will notice that it either says “RHS” followed by numbers or “DMC” followed by numbers. These colors are used as a guideline for choosing the colors you wish you use. DMC is a type of embroidery floss used in cross stitch as well as many other projects. By looking up the floss number, you have a good idea of what color YARN to choose in your project.

By downloading this pattern, I am assuming you have basic knowledge of creating graphgans. If not, please feel free to visit my facebook page (linked below) if you have questions or run into problems.

This graph is designed to be worked using either the Corner to Corner technique or using a bobble stitch. If you are unsure how to work these stitches, YouTube has some wonderful tutorials. I have linked one for C2C and One for Bobble Stitch. You will find these on the PDF itself.

You can download the pattern from my Craftsy Store HERE

I hope you will love this one as much as I do!!

New Years Resolution

hny

 

I cant believe 2016 is coming to an end already! Its been a great year & unfortunately, I have not offered many patterns at all this year.  As a New Years Resolution, All of my graph patterns will be HAND Drawn. I will not be using any type of clip art or web images to clean up and graph to offer to you. I have tons of already premade images just waiting to be graphed for your use.

I will still take some requests, but they may take longer as I will be re-drawing them. I prefer to have my own work, rather than someone elses.

As another resolution, I am going to get these ideas out of my head and onto “paper”. I have several non-graph patterns in the works and I cannot wait to show them to you!!!

Now we say goodbye to 2016 & Hello to 2017!!!
