Yarn …

This Design I wanted to pick a yarn that brought on the warmth and would keep you cozy, by providing that much needed comfy.

For this, I used Red Heart Yarn Super Saver in Grey Heather and White, more geared for the neutral take on colors (all colors are a total wonderful option). You can also use any type of worsted (4) weight, as it’s in the same category. Furls Crochet Wander Yarn, is perfect option as well for this pattern, it packs the same punch as well to give warmth, cozy and comfy snuggles

Hall-O-Ween Night Pumpkin — Crochet Pattern

Happy Saturday Y’all. I got another pumpkin pattern for y’all. Time to keep growing your pumpkin patch.

It’s quick and easy to work up. I literally timed myself while making this one, you will have it worked up from start to finish, in 45 minutes. This is a stash buster or even a scrap yarn project, trying to use up all the yarn — you’ll want to make this one hands down.

Yea I got a question for y’all, when you do stop making pumpkins? Do you only make them from September-October or do you make them all year long? I can honestly tell you, I might not stop. But, I do have a few more I need to finish writing up and designing as well. So, yeah, I just might be making pumpkins the rest of the year, I think that will be ok.

THIS POST DOES CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS.

You can’t use up CREATIVITY. The more you USE, the more you HAVE.

Design

Have you ever wondered what holding 2 strands of yarn can create? This pumpkin uses double strands. It creates a bulky piece, you will fall in love. This pumpkin is constructed with using half double crochet and using a yarn under technique and using single crochet with a yarn under technique for the seam. With your double strands held together, not one will come out the same with your color scheme. You will make a rectangle, taking the 2 ends together to seam them and to form a tube. To bring more into a pumpkin shape you will cinch bottom closed first, turning inside out so your seam will be placed on the inside, stuff it and cinch your top closed. Now, comes the best part, you get shape it to form it into a pumpkin, by wrapping your yarn around 4-6 times pulling them tight to create the shape you want. You will enjoy this pumpkin.

Yarn

I want to say thank you to Furls Crochet, for sending me their Wander Yarn for this design. They sent me Thatch and Obsidian, to design this pumpkin. This yarn is 100% acrylic based yarn in worsted weight, category 4. I am telling y’all you have to try this yarn and get yourself some. It’s super soft to the touch, making you not wanting to leave your hands. It slides off your hook like butter. It also has a very nice sheen look to it as well. But, the best feature I love about this yarn and for this design, is the SQUISH factor it beholds. One thing I want to say, it does snag with your top of your hook, so really pay attention to that. You can use my Back End Hook Pull Tutorial, to help not snag your yarn. In closing, this yarn is a new love of mine. It’s affordable $5 a skein, buy 5 or more you get a Free Tote with your yarn. Also, it comes in 24 amazing color options. Don’t forget this as well, Furls Crochet, even offers 14 Palette Packs to choose from.

Hook

Again, I want to thank Furls Crochet for sending me Streamline Galaxy Solar Flare Swirl I/9 (5.5mm), for this design. The Swirl Hooks are my favorite completely. They are medium lightweight, making you soar through your projects in no time. They don’t cramp my hands, leaving me crocheting for hours. They are also my big Eye Candy, by the blending of colors, creating the Swirl. They came in 11 different color options and in 10 different sizes (G+-P). You will fall in love, like I have over the years. I have using Furls Crochet Swirl Hooks since 2017 and I won’t stop.

Crescent Moon Appliqué — Crochet Pattern

Quick and easy make. A stash buster and scrap yarn project. Bringing the moon to your hands. Finally, you can say to everyone, you have the moon in your hands.

This post does contain affiliate links.

Have you ever made an appliqué before? Do you know what an appliqué is or what you can do with them?

There are so many appliqué patterns out there. They are a little project you can make, with less amount of yarn. They bring amazing characteristics to any make you are making or use them in the photos you capture.

Here are projects you can add them to:

  • Beanies
  • Bags of any kind
  • Cardigans
  • Cowls/Scarfs
  • Gloves/Mittens
  • Sweaters
  • Tee’s

They can bring them all together. These little items are just perfect to add, rather than, using tapestry crochet. You just simply add them by sewing them on or you can even crochet them onto your projects. Me personally, I love sewing them on.

I can honestly tell you this: this project is literally perfect for both and I made it this on purpose. Sometimes … things like the just happen and they did here.

Pin It For Later

Here is a little information about Crescent Moons and why they are my favorite and why I created them:

When the Moon appears early in its first quarter or late in its last quarter, only a small arc-shaped section is visible and illuminated by the Sun.

The orientation of the crescent Moon depends on the time of day, the season, and the viewer’s location.

  • During evening twilight, from January through March, in all of the northern temperate latitudes (from 25° to 50° north latitude, encompassing Canada, China, all of Europe, Japan, Russia, and the United States), the changing angle of the lunar orbit with respect to the horizon orients the crescent with its points, or horns, aimed upward, displaying a benevolent smile.
  • For the remainder of the year, the crescent appears sideways, like an archer’s bow.

At no time of night from any location on Earth does the Moon appear to be frowning; this occurs only around midday, in full sunlight.

The year-round view from the tropics is of a smiling crescent.

If you want to read more about Crescent Moons read them here: https://www.almanac.com/content/captivating-crescent-moon

Once you start, I can tell you that you won’t just stop at one moon. You will have a million moons.

Design

Halloween had been in my mind all month long. From watching all the horror movies, Halloween designs I have made and that eerie Halloween night when you can see the moon while Trick or Treating, the moon is hanging about you. I had yo captivate that feeling. To create that Crescent shape and moon like feeling, I can say it took me awhile, but settled on this one. You start with a chain, your first and last stitch are made in the actual ch’s, the stitches in between are made around the chain. Even, if you choose to make them right on your project, it will be the same sequence as not making them right on your project. I haven’t set a certain hook or yarn, because the hook or yarn will give you a small or x-large size moon. I will give you sample sizes in the hooks that I used so you get a feel.

Yarn

There is no exact yarn for this project. For the samples, I used a worsted weight 4 100% acrylic yarn, which is Red Heart Yarn Super Saver in White and Gold. It just had that more heavier feel I love to use and holds it shape, plus the colors are a wide spectrum that is endless. Feel free to use any yarn weight or type, you have on hand for these moons. Feel free to use any color from your favorite color or the yarn you have been wanting to use for a while now.

If you would like, shop a wide variety of yarn from the links below of my favorite yarn companies:

Hook

I used my absolutely favorite and best hooks in the world for this design. I used my Furls Streamline Swirl Hooks. They are a medium lightweight hook, they float through yarn like frosting a cake. They glide with the yarn like a match made in heaven. They come in 11 different color styles and 10 different sizes. They are perfect for hands, not leaving them cramping and crocheting for hours, but they are totally Eye Candy, just as much.

Gauge

Gauge isn’t crucial to this pattern, as I have made it towards using any hook or yarn of your choice.

Measurements

~ Length — Tip to Tip: 1.5”

~ Width — middle stitch: 0.75”

Materials

  • Hook: Any Size
  • Yarn: any weight, any type and any color
  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors
  • Stitch Marker (optional)
  • Tapestry Needle (weaving in ends)

Abbreviations/Stitches Used

  • Ch: chain
  • Slst: slip stitch
  • SC: single crochet
  • HDC: half double crochet
  • DC: double crochet
  • TRC: treble crochet
  • BLO: back loop only
  • YO: yarn over

Special Stitches

DC: to being this stitch, YO, insert your hook in indicated stitch, YO, pull up a loop (3 loops on your hook), YO, pull through first 2 loops (2 loops on your hook), YO and pull through last 2 loops

TRC: to begin this stitch, YO over twice, insert your hook into indicated stitch, YO, pull up a loop (4 loops on your hook), YO, pull through first 2 loops (3 loops on your hook), YO, pull through next 2 loops (2 loops on your hook), YO and pull through the last 2 loops

Pattern Notes

There are a few, as this a super quick and easy make.

  • Uses US Crochet Terminology
  • Ch’s don’t as a stitch
  • Instead of going in the actual Ch, you’re going around the base Ch’s
  • The size of your moons, all depends on the size of your hook and yarn you’re using
  • When you get closer to the end of the Ch, simply and lightly, push the stitches up on the Ch, to have more to complete the stitch sequence.
  • To measure your width: you’re just measuring the treble crochet, as they are the center of the moon
  • To measure your length: you’re going to start at the first sc to the Slst, which are the tips of the moon
  • I written this pattern in 3 different sizes all by the ch’s you start with. You get a more of a curve or a straight edge
  • You can make these Moons as a stand alone or right onto your project

Now …. Let’s start making MOONS

1st Moon:

Start by Ch8, in 2nd Ch from hook place a SC, place 2 HDC around the Ch, place 3 DC around the Ch, place 3 TRC around the Ch, place 3 DC around the Ch, place 2 HDC around the Ch, place a SC around the Ch, Slst into the first Ch made. FO and weave in your ends.

2nd Moon:

Start by Ch8, in 2nd Ch from hook place a SC, place 2 HDC around the Ch, place 2 DC around the Ch, place 3 TRC around the Ch, place 2 DC around the Ch, place 2 HDC around the Ch, place a SC around the Ch, Slst into the first Ch made. FO and weave in your ends.

3rd Moon:

Start by Ch7, in 2nd Ch from hook place a SC, place 2 HDC around the Ch, place 2 DC around the Ch, place a TRC around the Ch, place 2 DC around Ch, place 2 HDC around the Ch, place a SC around Ch, Slst into the first Ch made. FO and weave in your ends.

Attaching Your Moon …

Figure out on your make where you would like to attach your moon at. With that, cut a long piece of yarn, thread onto your needle, tie a knot on the bottom, with your moon in given place, sew your moon in place by simply going through the BLO’S along the edge of the moon, tie a knot to secure and weave in your ends.

Attaching Moon right on ….

Figure out where you would like to attach your moon. With that being said, attach your yarn with a Slst, simply follow the steps above for the type of moon you would like to make, after your last stitch you made, Slst it down, FO and weave in your ends.

3 finished Crescent Moons

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 👇🏻….

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)

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.

Jagged Ridge Beanie, Free Crochet Pattern, MM_Crochet17

“When thinking about life, remember this: No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of anxiety can change the future.” – Unknown

When, I was looking at designing this beanie, I had another envisioning was going for, but that idea went to the waste side and made me sad. It was that moment, when, I was cruising on Pinterest, at that moment that lightbulb clicked over and she was being born.

These are the moments that cease my heart into the creativeness that runs rapidly. These are the insistence’s that keep me alive. These are the moments that make me happy to be apart of an amazing community. These are the moments that make me happy to be a crocheter and a designer. These are the moments of seeing many people love what comes forth in my art.

©️MM_Crochet17 Jagged Ridge Beanie

A moment and a picture can change what I love, to make my hands keep going forth into the light.

With a little picture can make something and produce a design that wasn’t there before. We are all creative people, but we have to these depths to make them alive, maybe with a different outlook to what we call life. Sometimes just sometimes, life can be that turn that you need.

Life is just mysterious in how it works, thinks and acts. You have to be willing to make that effort. Halfway is all you life ask, before those footsteps fade into dust. Sometimes it’s gone before we knew it was there the whole time. Your effort is the price. Your effort is the key to making it out, because you have to know you’re not alone anymore in the fight, there is hope and time.

©️MM_Crochet17 Jagged Ridge Beanie

This design, as you can see, opened my eyes, to what we call life. Made me think, it’s time to reach out my hand. Letting people know that there is more to life, then me. This design keeps opening my eyes, every time I take a peer at it, shaping me back to my center core. Opening my heart and mind, letting me know there is more to life then myself.

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.

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)

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.

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.

You will be working in rows, turning your work after each completion of each row.

Ch3 does count as a stitch, but when you get to the border the ch1 isn’t a stitch.

** are used to be repeated.

() are used to be repeated in that section only.

You will notice that if your shawl is starting to curl up, it does workout, but you may want to block your shawl.

Adding tassels are an option to add to each corner, as they add character to your new shawl.

Measurements: Width- 4.9.” and Height- 27”.
