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!

To download this pattern, please visit my pattern shop or Click here


AWE Sleepy Owl – C2C

By At WIPS End – a Work In Progress..

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 – Finished size in inches depends on your yarn, hook, and your gauge.

Pattern Notes:

On the graph pattern, you will notice that it “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, of course, these are just guidelines & you may choose whatever colors you would like. 🙂

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.

New Years Resolution



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!!!

Lined Minion Inspired Bag


Free Pattern alert!!

Who doesn’t love these adorable yellow guys who love bananas and fart noises?? I know my little one just adores them. I came up with this wonderful little pattern. I DID find that the handles may be off center and uneven when working in the round with HDC. There are some video’s on YouTube that may help you out. Please view either THIS video or THIS video to help you out.

You can download this pattern in my SHOP or on Ravelry for $1.

This pattern calls for 5 colors of yarn, using less than 1/2 – 3/4 skein of yarn of each color. The finished size of this bag is approximately 9 inches high (before handles) x 10 inches wide. The pattern is worked in the round, except for the eyelid portion of the pattern.
It includes instruction for lining the finished bag using fabric & #10 crochet thread.


Without further ado, Here is the written pattern:

Attach eye to bag slightly off the black band. Add mouth with black yarn.

To add lining to bag: 

I have no actual tutorial for sewing in the liner. I will tell you what I did though. I took a piece of scrap fabric lying around. I believe it was purchased from Walmart (the red heart packs). I turned the bag inside out and attached the fabric with pins to the bottom. I lined up the top of the fabric to just above the black band and pinned in place. Using black #10 crochet thread and an embroidery needle, I tacked the bottom into place (you can sew all around the bottom if you wanted, I chose to just tack it). After attaching the bottom, I sewed up the sides using a whip stitch (I did not attach the sides to the bag) and then attached the top to the bag using a yellow #10 crochet thread.

I hope you have enjoyed this pattern!!
