My Updates

I am sorry that I have been silent for a few months here. Trying my hardest to figure where I have been wanting to go. Like honestly, wondering if I want to continue to crochet or just let it go.

When I first started, I feel deeply in love, like head over heels. Constantly teaching myself, new stitches, even going into the advanced stitches. I even taught myself how to read patterns, even the things to look for and how to write patterns. That is literally, why it has been extremely hard, to want to give it all up together.

I am telling y’all, that is literally not the case. After, putting myself out there and working with so many different yarn companies, I can’t just walk away. With that, I have so many designs to write and bring out of time out to complete.

In July, I registered to retake my CNA course again and so that I can reinstate. I am literally excited for this next step in my journey and taking care of patients again. I am one step closer to accomplishing this dream and achieve this goal. I have submitted everything need to the board, now I just play the waiting game. I can remember ever since I was a kid, that I wanted to do was to take care of others. Its a sense of pride and joy, that make me happy. That is why I decided to bring myself into the crochet community. To create art in a whole new form, by helping others bring out their creative side and to show the world what you create on a whole different canvas, with just a piece of fiber and a hook.

So, with that being said, I am here to stay and keep doing what I love the most …. Crocheting with my whole heart and not stopping. It also helps me stay focused, motivated, relaxed, calm and reduces my ADHD in the full aspect of my being.

In other news, why I have been wanting to step away, is literally in my own mind, because I have told myself in my own mind, that what I am doing isn’t good enough or even worthy enough to be good. But I and I mean I, is 100% good enough. Just need these horrible thoughts to quit torching my mind with horrible parasites. Now, going to be bringing in all good everything vibes into my mind and keep doing what I love the most and sharing my creativity with others, that find it special.

Also, I have considered stop letting people test my designs, because others have ruined that for me. But, like why you may ask? Because, I have been ghosted numerous times, to where I haven’t and still haven’t heard anything. All they wanted was my design.

THAT STOPS NOW AND GOING TO STOP. I am over it. My husband doesn’t quite understand the whole part about the testing process. Even, when I literally try to explain it to him. Still is like, huh or is like ‘Whatever I am getting cheese fries.’

Explaining the testing process to my husband:

“It’s where they get a chance to create my idea, but while giving me feedback and finding errors within the pattern. Even looking for things that don’t make sense or need to be rewritten. Also looking for grammatical errors and mathematical errors. Making sure my final measurements and yardage are about the same. FINISHING THE TEST IN THE GIVEN AMOUNT OF TIME, IF NOT THAN COMMUNICATING TO ME FOR EXTENSION. Also, when they have completed the pattern providing me with good quality photos and their notes, so the pattern is ready for others to enjoy. At the end of the test they will receive the final copy of the pattern, from their hard work, to make this pattern great.”

My husband tells me, “it sounds they are getting a free pattern to me.”

Me, “yes they will receive that if they finish.”

My husband, “if they don’t what happens?”

Me, “than I will be sending them an invoice and will have to purchase the pattern.”

My Husband, “oh ok, but that is confusing and I am going to get something to eat.”

With that here is my boundaries with testing. Also, be linking this post in my Pattern Testing Page, so everyone understands where I am coming from now and moving forward.

I take pride while I am designing and making from the depths of heart. I want to bring pieces from my memories and to share a part of me with the world. So, this why I have been wanting to close my crocheting door and seal it shut. So many people and including my husband, don’t do it as you will be letting them control you and walk all over you. You are amazing and create beautiful pieces, so keep doing what you love and set boundaries.

Below you will find these boundaries and I stand by them.

My Testing Boundaries

1. Make sure you have the given time to complete in the given time frame, before wanting to commit.

2. Make sure you have or can get the materials to complete the task in given time frame, before wanting to commit to the task. If you are still waiting for the materials make sure you COMMUNICATE with me what is going on, just don’t LEAVE ME IN LIMBO and wondering. I know we can’t control the shipping and what will happen, just COMMUNICATE with me is all that I ask. Respect me and I will do the same.

3. Make sure you are able to give thoughtful feedback and advice, while looking for errors throughout rough draft of the pattern. Before wanting to commit to the task.

4. I know that life happens and things come that are unexpected through what we can’t control, but please let me know so we can work together.

5. If you are almost finished with the task at hand, but you don’t think you are going to finish within the time, than communicate that with me, so we can work together. Just give me the courteous and don’t just ghost me or go rogue on me.

6. When you have accepted the given task, but you feel like it ain’t just going to work out, let me know so I can make the adjustments.

These have all happened to me and I have set these boundaries for now on. I love what i do and where I want to go from here forward. This is my journey and my joy. That is the big reason why I got into designing, to share my passion with others.

Please respect me and I will do the same to you as well. Let’s continue to work with one another.

Also, I am excited to become a CNA again and follow my biggest dream to become a Nurse.

Thank you for being here and supporting me on my journey’s.

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.

Difficulty/Skill Level

Additional Notes

Ch’s don’t count as a stitch.

In the pattern below I have included three ways you can enjoy this pattern, just to have a little versatility to enjoy it.

If you aren’t comfortable with doing the SCFCH, you are more than welcome to ch36, join ch to the first ch (making sure you have no twist), ch1 and sc in same stitch and repeat across. Join to first stitch and carry on with r2 of the pattern.

Pattern

R1: 36SCFCH and join together.

R2: ch1, sc in the blo same stitch and each blo of the next 35 stitches. Slip stitch to first stitch to join. (36)

R3: repeat r2. (36)

R4: ch2, puff in the same stitch and each of the next 35 stitches. Slip stitch to first stitch to join. (36)

For making the Beanie, FO and leave a long tail for cinching the top closed. Now, grab your large eyed needle and thread it with the long tail still attached to your hat. You will be weaving your needle in and out every other front loop, when you get to the beginning, pull your yarn tight closing the top of your beanie. Tie a knot to secure it and weave in your ends. Here you may attach any kind of pompom you would like or you can leave it as is.

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.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked from the bottom up, cinching the top closed.

Pattern is written in Adult size.

Once you have completed the last row of the brim and seaming it together, your stitch count will still the same.

To complete the extended bobble stitch, you need basic knowledge of how to do the Treble Crochet, here I have provided a link to a video that helps me out when I need a recap https://youtu.be/RH3u-wIOuJg hope it will help you out.

When you are working your bobble stitch rows, you will turning your work after previous sc row and after completing your bobble rows.

I have included some notes throughout the pattern, to understand my thinking.

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.
