Did you go to fairs as a child? What about amusement parks? What is your favorite ride? Or did you stay down on the ground, to just watch the excitement and eat the delicious food?

Fairs and amusement parks, were my enjoyment hands down. I can remember going there with my Grandparents every summer, it was always my special place and fantasy place.

Design

As a kid, I was a total adrenaline junkie and still am as an Adult. Lived for the rides. Especially the classic, Ferris Wheel. But, I could never, also pass up a good Roller Coaster either.

But, you find me on the FERRIS WHEEL. Riding it for hours and never bored.

Being able to get the highest point, to feel the light breeze on a hot summer day. Seeing the beautiful lights upon a great stary summer night. Just, the best feeling in the world.

So, I thought, why not create this memory in a keepsake piece. Bringing you a fun and decorative coaster, into your home or giving it as a gift to someone.

You won’t just stop at one, once you start, they multiply quick.

Yarn

Lately, I have been falling more in love with Caron Simply Soft Solids Yarn. This yarn has a sheen look to it and it’s super soft. It is 100% acrylic yarn and love the way how it works and the squish factor it gives off.

This yarn comes in multiple ranges of color. The 2 colors shown in these samples I used, Country Blue and DK Country. Each skein holds 315yds. I knew it would be the best fit for this pattern.

You may substitute for any other type of worsted weight 4 yarn. Furls Crochet has there Wander Yarn that would work with this as well and many great colors to choose from. You can also use cotton yarn as well.

Here are some other great yarns you could choose from as well for this pattern 👇🏻….

Quick Mountain Star Coasters

My latest design — Mountain Star Coasters, are a free pattern here on the blog.

Read through what inspired this design, keep scrolling down for the free pattern or you can simply purchase the inexpensive printable PDF here.

Mountain Star Coaster under my favorite mug.

“Embrace your placement. We can’t always chose what season of life we’re in, but we can determine what we do while we’re there.”

Unknown

—Inspiration—

This design came to me, when I was asked by @creativesundayapp if i would like to design something for them. They thought it would be really cool if i did a coaster, something people could use around the house, like a quick little cute project. But, they didn’t limit me to just make a coaster — it could have been anything.

I took that offer with a grace of God. Mind was racing around each bend, trying to grasp that perfect little stone to make and capture me. Thinking of something a little more sturdy, that would hold up for any occasion and not loose it’s shape over time.

Got my little hands busy, like working bees making their delicious honey. I wanted to capture, what I love the most – the outdoors of course. The design was under construction.

Using more of simple based stitches, so that it will be minutes rather than hours, to have your coasters ready for any adventure they will travel through. The center circle base is made with single crochets worked in a spiral (no joining) to create the lush valleys based below the high peaks. The border around the base is made with double crochets, picot stitches and chain2’s, made into a Star look, creating the high peaks towering into the clouds.

LoveCrafts

—The Yarn—

I got my mind thinking of the possibilities colors, weight and type. Should I use lightweight, worsted, bulky and even super bulky yarn.

I crossed the lightweight and super bulky of the list, that left me with worsted #4 and bulky #5. I know that i wanted to use 2 strands of one type, just to create a different color texture. I got to thinking, if i used 2 strands of bulky, that would make it more bulkier and take away from the vision.

Once, I grabbed 2 strands of worsted weight #4 yarn, it just felt right. It’s just like using bulky #5 yarn, but you get to choose different color combinations, by showing off your personality through your making process. But, you can also use Bulky #5 yarn as well with this pattern.

I chose to use Red Heart Yarn Super Saver in black and white (worsted weight 4). I went for a neutral feel to stay in the roots of this design and to showcase my personality as a person, so you can have feel more about me.

Feel free to shop here and browse through their selection to find your yarn, for your new project. They have many to chose from.

Rising Hope Beanie, Free Crochet Pattern

Sometimes when you’re in a dark place, you tend to think you have been buried; what if you’ve been planted? — Mindfully Glam

Wearing the Rising Hope Beanie

When, I was young my only dream was to be in the medical field. Being a nurse or a doctor was my only passion, I ever wanted to accomplish and become. A care taker was what blinded me. It was the only thing I wanted, it literally was in my blood, and tired fighting for it.

When, I was in middle school, I had this teacher tell me, “you are never going to achieve anything in your life, you just need to quit while you are ahead, your dreams are going to be nothing.” For the longest time this is what was embedded in my brain. I couldn’t let it go nor let it become me, because it did.

I ended up proving myself and my teacher wrong. It was what I wanted to do four the longest time. Graduated high school and even after 3yrs of my graduation, I even went to college. A moment that I am forever happy for and proud to have done. A moment I saw the light and path, that was for me.

It made me see that there was a light at the end of tunnel for me. I was in college for 3yrs, I got my CNA (certified nursing assistant), it was the best feeling in the world to see I accomplished something and pass on my love of life to other people.

I was a proud CNA for 2.5yrs and it was the only thing that made me happy in this life. That changed in 2016, my life and path changed. I let that piece of me go. It was the absolutely hardest for me to do. But, again there was another light in my tunnel that made me see another path in this life of mine.

It was a couple days after Thanksgiving of 2016, that I picked up my first hook and a ball of precious yarn. If you could what I made it was something else, but with the practice and teaching myself patience, I can say I love what I do and what I make. It was the best change I made for my life. I haven’t stopped since.

In the beginning of March 2017, is when I started MM_Crochet17. It was a tough start trying every turn I can make to get my name out there to people. I just never gave up and kept pushing myself to where I am today. Being apart of an amazing community of designers, which inspire me each day.

All the inspiration I have witnessed, this Beanie was brought forth for me like a phoenix rising from the ashes to be reborn. To rise and conquer my dreams for this journey I am on.

Inspiration

I made this beanie as a contribute to my life. That there is always hope and you have to believe in yourself, no matter what life throws in your journey. If things don’t work out, you stumble, and you get told “NO”, just remember it’s just a sign that it wasn’t your time at that moment, don’t let it stop you. Those are the things I think about every time my eyes meet with this beanie, you have to Keep Rising Hope and keep going. There is still Hope. There is still a chance for you, brush it off, now it just means you have to work harder for the next opportunity. This isn’t the end of my journey, I will get my time, but this beanie gives me this Hope I need to understand.

Where The Name Came From

I posted a picture, as a way to help me name this pattern, nothing was coming forth. A handful of people helped and came up with some names that were amazing, but one I saw just stood out from @ryanparkerdesigns

I just couldn’t pass this name up, the perfect piece to fit my own puzzle.

The Yarn

Trying many possibilities. Looking over so many types in my stash, but I just couldn’t decide what to use. After, a day went by, I got to thinking, I need to keep more on the neutral side, than for me trying to make it pop. So, I grabbed my Red Heart Yarn Super Saver in White and Ombré in Anthracite and the colors just flowed through my vision. My color pallet was decided to design this pattern in the neutral state. The fiber choice for this pattern works best with Worsted Weight #4 yarn.

My Testers

I had some really amazing testers that brought this design more alive. They took this pattern to the next level, to help get where it is. I couldn’t have done without their skills, knowledge and expertise. So…. my thanks is to them.

Pattern Notes

US Crochet Terminology. (Please don’t translate into any other language without contacting me first to do so.)

The ch’s at the beginning of the row, don’t count as stitches. Also, ch3’s don’t count as stitches.

This pattern is worked from starting with the brim, body and then decrease rows, finally cinching top closed.

The brim is worked in rows by ch’ing and turning, before beginning the next row.

The DC (double crochet) for the first three stitches and last three stitches, are worked in the stitches and also around the ch3’s. While the rest of the double crochet’s of the row are worked into the ch3 space, not going into the stitches of the previous row.

Abbreviations/Stitches Used

  • Ch: chain
  • R: row
  • H: height
  • W: width
  • SC: single crochet
  • DC: double crochet
  • EXSC: extended single crochet
  • Dec: decrease
  • BLO: back loop only
  • SK: skip
  • **: to be repeated
  • YO: yarn over
  • FO: fasten off

Special Stitches

ExSC (extended single crochet): this stitch is completed just like that of the single crochet, the only difference is when this stitch is placed you will just pull up a little bit on your hook and yarn, to get that height. This stitch is also worked in each single crochet’s of previous rows.

Dec (decrease): there are several ways to make a decrease, the one I am going to explain here will simply be your traditional decrease. To begin, insert your hook into indicated stitch, yo, pull up a loop, 2 loops on your hook, insert hook into next stitch, yo, pull up a loop, 3 loops on your hook, yo, pull through all 3 loops to complete your decrease.

Now Let’s Dive Right In…

Brim

Starting with your H (5.0mm) and ch8.

R1: sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in the remaining four ch’s. Ch1 and turn. (7)

R2: sc in the first stitch, sc in the BLO of the next 5ch’s, sc in the last stitch. Ch1 and turn. (7)

R3-65: repeat R2. (7)

After completing your last row, bring both ends together, simply slip stitch them together, and turn inside out (so your seam is on the inside). Your brim should measure 17” wide and 2” high.

How your brim should look!!

R23: ch1, sc in each stitch, slip stitch to first stitch to join. (26)

FO and leave a long tail for cinching your beanie closed.

Cinching Up Your Beanie

You will be weaving in and out of each stitch. Once you get to end, begin pulling your yarn tight (not so tight that you don’t break your yarn, like I did), then simply tie a several knots to secure it. Weave in your ends and she is completed. At this point, you may add a Yarn or Faux Fur Pompom, it’s your choice.

Foxy Loxy Pompom, Free Crochet Pattern, MM_Crochet17

Here lately, I have been seeing the love with this fur yarn from Lion Brand Yarn and beauty behind it. My heart melted and screamed in joy. Possibilities and designs started pouring in my head, with what I could make with this yarn. Just only one stuck, a full on crocheted PomPom to add to so many projects or making a fur ornament for decoration. Keep reading for the free pattern.

©️2020 MM_Crochet17
Foxy Loxy Pompom in Baked Alaskan

When, I was trying to figure out how to do a pompom with this yarn, I came by Left In Knots fur crocheted PomPom, but I just couldn’t get it to work out for the life of me. It was like my brain was out of order at this time. Then, recently shortly after, I noticed that Crazy4crochetmama had come up with a pompom out of Red Heart Yarns Hygge, such a beautiful crocheted PomPom (that I need to try out, as well), which both were my inspiration for this pompom. Plus, even Bhooked inspired these with her podcast explaining on how to use this yarn. Which got me to thinking, I want to create something special to be used with this yarn.

©️2020 MM_Crochet17
Chinchilla, Blonde Elk and Baked Alaskan Foxy Loxy Pompom

I love faux fur, as it is super soft and has a very luxurious touch to it, that had me dreaming to make a pompom that would resemble the same effect to it. This design just kept dancing inside the front of my brain, letting nothing else come forth until I produce this item.

Then, one night sitting on the couch, I grabbed this beautiful yarn out of stash and my big Boye size N/19 (10.00mm) Hook, started creating this design, the best idea I had, from the depths of my creativeness.

©️2020 MM_Crochet17
Chinchilla Faux Fur Yarn

This project resembles a squared piece of fur fabric. As it is the same soft touch, that all you want to do is keep petting it, like you would your dog. After, you have finished getting to your last measurement, FO and you don’t have to weave in your ends, then you begin cinching it up like you would a faux fur fabric and then stuff her up to get the same roundness as all those faux fur pompom’s on the market, but the greatest touch and best secret, is that is all crocheted up. That is the goal that I was looking for, once I started creating this joy. Plus, this yarn will not disappoint you in anyway, it will have you wanting more.

This yarn can be found at Lion Brand Yarn in many different shades: black panther, grey wolf, pink poodle, blue bengal, blonde elk, violet sterling, baked alaska, chinchilla, mink, Pomeranian, and bear. I have yet to try them all, but I can’t wait and the colors are to die for. The next color I am making these in are pink poodle and blue bengal, as these two are a gorgeous luxurious look. These will be available in my Shop soon for purchasing.

This pattern is written in US terminology.

When using this yarn, I suggest you be in a well lit area to see your stitches, as it’s hard to see them or you will have to feel for them, as it’s in the category #6 super bulky.

This pattern is worked in rows, chaining 1 and turning, before starting next row.

Ch1’s don’t count a stitch.

You don’t need to weave in your ends, as you will stuff them inside your pompom, before cinching up.

After, you are finished cinching up, pull tight, tie several knots to keep in place, then take one of the two strands and add your needle, poke needle across from where you are and pull through, tie several more knots and you’re done.

You will also notice that you can’t deal which row you are, I suggest you grab your tape measure and measure. until you get to 6.5″ and then carry onto finishing up your pompom.

Abbreviations/Stitches Used

Ch: chain.

SC: single crochet.

R: row.

FO: fasten off.

ST: stitches.

H: hook.


Now, Let’s begin making your Pompom!!

To start, grab your N H and ch13.

R1: in the second ch from h sc, and sc in the next eleven ch’s. Ch1 and turn. (12st’s)

R2-12: sc in same st and next 11 st’s. Ch1 and turn. (12st’s)

Once your piece measures 6.5″ long and 6.5″ wide, FO and don’t weave in your ends, as they are easily to be stuffed inside your pompom when cinching. 

Now, it’s time to be cinched up. 

Grab a long piece of any color of your choice, of worsted weight yarn. Place your farming needle on your strand of yarn. Poke your yarn through the last stitch before FO’ing off, then continue around until you get to where you started, both tails should be facing on the same side. Un-string your needle and then begin pulling tight, before you close the pompom all the way closed, take your filling and stuff your pompom, continue to stuff until you have your desired look. Once, you’re done stuffing, pull on your two strings to have a tight hole, then begin tying several knots to secure it. Then begin stringing one of the two strands with your needle, then poke your needle across or diagonally from your knots, pull strand through, release needle from strand and tie several knots to secure. Cut your strings to desired length and now you can attach to your next project or tie knots to leave as an ornament for decorating for the seasons.

Strike Threw Snowcapped Earwarmer/Cowl/Beanie, Free Crohet Pattern, MM_Crochet17

©️2020 MM_Crochet17, wearing The Beanie

”No One is you and that is your power.”

Shanna Skidmore

When you think that something wouldn’t work, but after many tries, the envision finally took place. I just wasn’t going to give up on this, not at all. Many rip it’s and rip it’s ran through this yarn. It’s just like life, when something doesn’t work and you think you have failed yourself, never give up, because trust me it’s there. Put it aside for the time being and pick it back up the day after. Trust me it will work.

If you know me the one things I am a sucker for are super chunky yarn, big hooks, and puffed stitches. They bring out the joy and happiness in my life. It makes me drool and wanting more. This yarn from Lion Brand Yarn in Hometown USA, was the perfect fit for this design and I couldn’t resist it, but you can use any super bulky #6 yarn that you have been eying. Plus, when I found my N hook from Boye Yarn Crafts my heart was in love at first sight. These two pairings are a dream come true. They make items that are super comfy, warm and squishy items, that just make my world a happy place.

I like big hooks and can’t lie. I like big yarn and I can’t lie. I like big puffy stitches and I can’t lie. These three sentences are all that go through my head, when I get to pick them up and work with them. It just makes me chuckle, while my husband just gives me a weird look each and every time. I look back and say, “What?” He tells, “I just love seeing you this happy with whatever you do.”

If you love super fast projects that work up quick, then you are going to enjoy making this. I wanted to incorporate stitches that were simple and easy to work. The single crochet is my best friend, as you can see it’s just a dream to work, as there isn’t much required knowledge. I then decided to add a little texture, by going into the back loop in the next two rows, to give the effect of a strike through. Which, gave its name.

When it came time doing my puff stitches, I wanted a little twist. Instead of doing the traditional puff with a ch1 to close it, I don’t close the stitch, as it groups each together. It just makes it easier for you to go into the stitch, plus gave it a more definite texture that speaks to me. Always love taking a twist and spin just to play on the textures.

One more thing to add before we get to the deets, this free crochet pattern comes as three patterns in one. Who doesn’t like that? I love it so much when this happens.

Summer Snowball Beanie, Free Crochet Pattern, By MM_Crochet17

©️2020 MM_Crochet17

”Productivity is how you run away from yourself. Creativity is how you become yourself.”

Unknown

The past 2 days, sitting on the couch, a big debate started roaming around my head. Should I or not put this pattern here on my blog, and drop the price in my shop. It was the biggest twilight idea that went off, I did it and I feel so honored to be bringing you this pattern.

This last summer, My husband and I, took an adventure to go to my family reunion which is up in Northern Wyoming where I was born and raised. My husband has never gotten the opportunity to see my hometown. While we were up there, he also got to meet my mother side of the family at a family reunion, so that was good and rewarding that they greeted him with loving arms. 

When we were heading back home, My husband looked over at asked me if I was ok -knowing that I didn’t want to leave that place. I told I want to show you the part of Cody, WY you haven’t seen yet, which was the west portion, like you were heading to the East entrance to Yellowstone National Park. We ended up saying, “what do you say Vie, another Uie?,” and headed towards a magical land, where life disappears to the captivating Mountains and valleys. 

It was like being a fairytale from the books. Being surrounded by mountains and trees that took to the sky like skyscrapers, but better. He told me with tears streaming down like a gushing river, I never want to leave this place. 

Those words were music to my ears. Inspired this design and a memory from my childhood, when looking off into the distance seeing those snowcapped Mountains.

I can remember as a kid there was this wonderful time in June it snowed in the middle of beautiful Sunny day. I told myself this can’t even happen and I am not complaining whatsoever, because it was snowball fight time. We went in the house, put on our gloves still in shorts and tank tops, balled put the fresh white ground and the fight was on. Perfect for cooling off on a 85 degree day. Trust me you are thinking this can’t happen, but it did no joke at all.

You can also purchase this inexpensive pdf here, to have on the go and to be printed.

When you get to this point, FO and cut a long tail. This is where we will begin cinching the top closed. To begin the process, you will cinch in every third stitch. When you get to your last stitch, pull your yarn tight to close the middle. Then, begin sewing around the top of your beanie. Then, take your needle and poke it through the middle, so that it will come to the inside of your beanie. Now, you can simply weave in all your ends. You’re finished. You can add a pompom or just leave as is.

I really hope you enjoyed making this beanie, as much as I had the pleasure of designing it for you. Thank you for all your support, I really appreciate it.

Double Cross Shawl, Free Crochet Pattern, By MM_Crochet17

©️MM_Crochet17

After, seeing so many inspiring shawls and different patterns coming alive, I just knew it was time to take the plunge. My heart understood that this wasn’t going to be easy, just knew I needed to do this. Sometimes we can’t change the path we are destined for. Personally, I believe this was my path to embark.

Intimidation’s, frustration’s, give ups and put downs I was feeding myself all day, something told myself to fight the power. Put the bugger away and start again. These were the things I knew I needed to do, but it was hard to break the heartache. The pain was hard to fight and pull it off, but nothing changed. Our instincts show us where the footprints in life are to be placed. What we think that maybe impossible is the possible. These were the things that kept racing throughout my mind.

As, three days passed, I decided it was time for my hands to pick it back up and finish what I started. People in my life have always told me, I never finish what I start. Now, this was my time to prove I can do this. This was my win-win for myself, to make me feel proud and accomplished, plus it becomes one of many life-changing experiences I needed.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and make this shawl. Can’t wait to see the colors you choose to whip this up in.
