Granny Square No 6 - 2D Flower - For Foggy Dawn Sweater Project

Finally, after a few months, I am able to publish another granny square for my crocheted "Foggy Dawn Sweater Project," a "Granny Square No 6". Just like a granny square #5 in my previous post (see link below), it is feminine and romantic. It is a 2D flower design. It is easy to crochet, especially if you crochet along with my detailed video that will guide you step-by-step. You can use it in any project no matter what weight of yarn, yarn type or color you chose. Use it for my sweater project, make a baby blanket, a vest, or how about a poncho? Take it beyond your imagination.

Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you who finds an error in the written pattern, so please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem.

Knitted Confetti Socks

I bought this yarn and made these socks over a year ago. I just didn't have time to finish editing my video and writing the pattern. But here I am a year later to make a little write up before I will publish all - the video and the pattern.

The yarn's colors were appealing to me so strongly that I just had to have it. I am sure you all know the feeling. I feel like a child in a candy store when I see yarn around me. Gold, turquoise and magenta colors intertwine in such ways that they look like confetti fell on the uncolored yarn. This yarn is hand-painted and reflects one of ancient South American color combinations, and it just may brighten anyone 's day.

However, you may replace this yarn with another fingering sock yarn of your choice, the one that appeals to you. Sock yarns are so beautiful these days, and there are a lot of talented yarn "painters". I may try to paint my sock yarn (or any other type of yarn) one day myself. I will keep you posted.


FOR THIS PROJECT YOU WILL NEED:

Yarn:
  • 1 ball of Araucania Yarn - Huasco Sock; Color: Guacamayo; 75% Superwash Wool; 25 % Polyamide; 3.52 oz/100 g; 433 yd/396 m 
  • DPN or Circular (long ones to knit using a magic circle)
  • Knitting Needles - 2.75mm
  • Yarn Needle (for weaving in the tail)
  • Scissors 
Size:
  • Shoe size: ~ US size 6
  • Ankle Area: ~ 6.5-7” circumference
  • Ribbing Height: 2”
  • Sole width: 3.25” (circumference is ~ 6.5”)
  • Length of the sole: ~7.5” (you can make it longer if you chose so)

B&W Fuzzy Scarf With iCord Edge For Fashion-conscious

Today, I would like to write about knitting my black and white fuzzy scarf, which I absolutely love.

Not too long ago I went to check out a yarn store that I like to visit occasionally. In this store, they had a knitted dark gray caplet with green fuzzy pieces sticking out and green edging around it. The effect of the green edging vs. green fuzzy pieces sticking out of the gray yarn was divine.

Then, I noticed they had these fuzzies in different colors too. One of them was a yarn with fuzzy white tufts. I knew right away that this yarn would be perfect for a scarf, which would go well with my white jacket that has black trim. So I bought four skeins of the fuzzy yarn and two skeins (per store owner's recommendation) for the trim. I had a hunch that I will not need two skeins for the trim. Instead, I should have bought five of the fuzzy yarns and one for the trim. Well, that's OK, I will make good use of the leftover white yarn in the future.

Knitting with "Lang Yarns" is not complicated. For my project, I used a seed stitch so my edges would not curl and my scarf would have a reversible effect. I could have used a garter stitch also, but I thought that seed stitch would allow for a longer scarf.

After wearing my scarf, I noticed that the tufts shed, which is fine with me because I wear my new scarf with my white jacket that has a nylon surface. But I cannot wear it with a cotton fabric, because I would look like I played with a dog.

I made a detailed video too. Enjoy.

Yarn

  • Lang Yarns, "Drago"; Color: 999.0094 (white tufts); Fiber: 41% Mohair - 25% Wool - 18% Nylon - 16% Acrylic; 50g/1.75 oz; 110 yds/100 m; Care: Use detergent for fine wash without softener
  • Berrocco, "Comfort"; Color: 9700 Chalk; Fiber: 50% Super Fine Nylon, 50% Super Fine Acrylic; 100g/3.5 oz; 210 yds; 


Knitting Needles - Long needles - 6.00 mm (for scarf); 2 short DPNs - size 5.5mm (for an i-cord)
Yarn needle
Scissors

Abbreviations:
CO - cast on
K - knit
P - purl
st, sts - stitch, stitches
WS - wrong side
RS - right side
K2togtbl - knit two stitches together through the back loop
BO - bind off



Gauge:
My gauge corresponds to a manufacturer's gauge on the yarn label

Size:
Length: 33"
Width: 7"

Step-by-Step:

Using Lang Yarns knit a rectangle of our desired width and length

Working with two long knitting needles CO 49 sts (or your desired number of stitches). I CO an odd number of stitches to work every row the same way (the seed stitch)

Row 1-??          (RS) *[K1, P1]* repeat to last st, K1

Knit as many rows as desired, do not bind off.

Work along the last row

CO 3 (or 4) stitches onto DPN and bind off using an i-cord technique. When finished with binding off, work using two DPNs - knit 3 rows in the round (K3), then (if you are right-handed) work i-cord as such:

Work along 1st long side

Rnd 1               pick one loop (leading yarn) along the side with your left END of your DPN (that has 3 sts on it), slide all 4 stitches toward the right side, K2, K2togtbl (white and dark stitches)

Rnd 2               pick second loop (leading yarn) along the side with your left END of your DPN (that has 3 sts on it), slide all 4 stitches toward the right side, K2, K2togtbl (= white and dark stitches)

Rnd 3               slide all 3 stitches toward the right side, K3

Repeat until you reach next corner, then knit 3 rows in the round (K3)

Work along the CO side (the bottom)

Rnd 1-49          pick each loop (every CO stitch) along the bottom with your left END of your DPN (that has 3 sts on it), slide all 4 stitches toward the right side, K2, K2togtbl (white and dark stitches)

Repeat until you reach next corner, then knit 3 rows in the round (K3)

Work along 1st long side

Rnd 1               pick one loop (leading yarn) along the side with your left END of your DPN (that has 3 sts on it), slide all 4 stitches toward the right side, K2, K2togtbl (white and dark stitches)

Rnd 2               pick second loop (leading yarn) along the side with your left END of your DPN (that has 3 sts on it), slide all 4 stitches toward the right side, K2, K2togtbl (= white and dark stitches)

Rnd 3               slide all 3 stitches toward the right side, K3

Repeat until you reach next corner, then knit 2 rows in the round (K3) - finish the i-cord by sewing both ends together and weave in all loose ends.

Granny Square No 5 - Flower

Today I am publishing another granny square for my crocheted "Foggy Dawn Sweater Project," this time it is a "Granny Square No 5". Just like Channel perfume No 5, it is feminine and romantic. This square has a 3D feel to it, with the flower centerpiece. It is not difficult once you understand the concept. I have a quite detailed (what else is new?) video that will help you with grasping the construction of this design. I am sure many of you, who are fairly new to crocheting, saw variations of this 3D flower and wondered how it is done. Do not let anything stop you from crocheting this 3D square. You can use it in any project no matter what weight of yarn, yarn type or color you chose. Use it for my sweater project, or make a baby blanket using as many "granny squares no 5" as needed. Give power to your imagination.

My Mom's Old Fashioned Scarf

When I was a child, my mom used to make scarves for my siblings and me. These scarves' one end would go through an opening on the other end that my mom made while knitting our scarves. That way we would not lose them.
Today I would like to share with you my mom's design (which was very popular then) for such a scarf. I also made videos for knitters (for lefties and righties - see below) who prefer to knit along. The pattern can be adjusted by simply changing stitches to lower or higher number when increasing or decreasing, and knitting the middle part shorter or longer than I described it below and in my videos. I used worsted (#4) yarn, but you may knit this scarf from thinner or thicker yarn as well - then you will have to adjust a number of increases and decreases, and a number of rows in the middle as well.
To knit this scarf, you need to know: how to cast on, knit, purl, knit two together, increase, transfer stitches from one needle onto two needles and then back, and how to bind off.

VIDEO TUTORIAL FOR RIGHTIES

VIDEO TUTORIAL FOR LEFTIES

Materials:
Yarn - any yarn of medium weight (#4, worsted) - your choice;
In the video I am using: Cascade Yarns, Cascade 220, worsted weight #4, 100g/3.5 oz; 220 yds/200 m; Colors: #1 - 9559 (light gray), #2 - 8505 (white)
Knitting Needles - US #8 (5.00 mm): 3 long DPNs (minimum 8" or longer; three 10" would be better) OR 2-3 circular needles (EITHER one 30"+ long, plus one 16"long, OR three 9" to 16" circulars)
Scissors

Abbreviations:
CO - cast on
K - knit
P - purl
st, sts - stitch, stitches
WS - wrong side
RS - right side
incr - increase; insert your needle purlwise through the back loop, knit it, don't take the stitch off the needle yet, knit the same stitch regular way, only then take the stitch off the needle - you increased by 1 stitch
K1-ptbl - knit one stitch purlwise through the back loop
K2tog - knit two stitches together
BO - bind off

Gauge:
My gauge corresponds to a manufacturer's gauge on the yarn label

Size:
Length: 33"
Width: 7"



Step-by-Step:

  • HEART/LEAF SHAPED END #1
Yarn color #1 (gray)

Working with two long DPNs, OR one long 30" circular (knitting back and forth with each end), OR two shorter circular (using them the same way as DPNs)  CO 4 sts

Row 1          (WS) K4

Row 2          (RS) incr, K to end
Row 3          (WS) incr, K to end

repeat Rows 2 & 3 as many times as you need, I increased my stitches in each row until I had total 32 stitches on my needles

Row 30       (RS) K32
Row 31       (WS) K32

Repeat Rows 30 & 31 as many times as you need. For my width of 32 stitches, I knitted total 16 rows (half of 32 sts), which means I finished with Row 45.

  • OPENING #1
Before you will continue knitting do this first:
While you have your 32 (or your desired even number of stitches, that can be divided by two into another even number) stitches on your needle take either two DPNs, OR two shorter circulars, OR the other end of your long circular and one short circular and transfer stitches from the one needle onto two needles in alternating fashion - first transfer one stitch onto needle #1, then transfer the second stitch onto needle #2 and repeat to end. You should end up with 16 sts on needle #1 and 16 sts on needle #2

Knit stitches on needle #1, the one closer to your body, first:
Row 46     (RS) *[K1, P1]* - to end
Row 47     (WS) *[K1, P1]* - to end

Repeat Rows 46 & 47 nine more times, until you are finished with Row 65, then fasten off the yarn while keeping a tail long about 8"-10"

Fold the first knitted piece forward toward your body, then knit stitches on needle #2, the one further away from your body, starting on the same side as you started when you were working with needle #1, second:
Row 46     (RS) *[K1, P1]* - to end
Row 47     (WS) *[K1, P1]* - to end

Repeat Rows 46 & 47 seven more times, until you are finished with Row 65, DO NOT fasten off the yarn

Transfer stitches in the alternating fashion from two needles onto just one needle as such: starting with the back needle #2 move your first stitch onto the single knitting needle, then take the first stitch from needle #1 and move it onto the same single knitting needle - repeat until you have all 32 stitches back on one knitting needle only.

  • MIDDLE PANEL
Note: if you knit this scarf with only one color yarn, knit as many rows as needed to wrap around your neck. My middle part measures 14.5".

This is how I knitted my middle panel:

Row 66              combine tail from the knitting needle #1 and the yarn from the knitting needle #2 and K all stitches to end (with combo tail/yarn you will knit only a few stitches, then continue with yarn only - this will eliminate weaving in the ends)
Row 67-105       K32

Color #2 (white)
Row 106-113    K32

Yarn color #1 (gray)
Row 114-121    K32

Color #2 (white)
Row 122-125    K32

Yarn color #1 (gray)
Row 126-129    K32

Color #2 (white)

Row 130-137    K32

Yarn color #1 (gray)
Row 138-145    K32

Color #2 (white, from now on till end)
Row 146-185    K32

  • OPENING #2
In Rows 186 through 205 repeat knitting this opening same way as in Opening #1 - separation of your stitches onto 2 knitting needles, then knit side #1, then side #2, then put these two sides back together onto one knitting needle only.

  • HEART/LEAF SHAPED END #2
Continue working as such:

Row 206-221   K32

Row 222          (RS) K1-ptbl, K2tog, K to end
Row 223          (WS) K1-ptbl, K2tog, K to end

Repeat Rows 222 and 223 until you have 4 sts on your needle.

In your last row BO all your stitches. Then weave in all the tails/ends.

Granny Square No 4 - Shell Stitch - For Foggy Dawn Sweater Project

Another detailed video tutorial of our granny square for crocheters for our Foggy Dawn Sweater Project - this time it is a #4 shell stitch square. If you would like to make this sweater, click on the link "Introduction to this project" (see my link below) OR on one of the two links for a PLAYLIST (left-handed OR right-handed crocheters) so you can crochet along. All of my videos are quite detailed for anyone that needs help with crocheting. But if you are more experienced, use it just as a reference and skip over the parts that you know how to do - this way you don't get too bored.

Use this pattern for any project - my sweater, a granny square blanket, a scarf, or any other project that requires crocheted squares.

To crochet this square, you need to know how to crochet chain, slip stitch, single crochet stitch, and double crochet stitch.

Very Easy Fuzzy Puff Stitch Scarf

Fuzzy Puff Stitch Scarf 
I have been working on my "Foggy Dawn Sweater Project" for quite some time, and I needed a break. When I was teaching knitting and crocheting class one of my students brought Caron's "Latte Cake" yarn. Since I haven't been to a yarn store for quite some time, I decided to drive after class to buy this yarn. I checked on my Michaels app if they have "Late Cake" on sale and yes they did - for $7 plus 20% off including sale price items. So, I went and bought me 2 balls for a scarf and a hat.

I decided to make my scarf wider than I usually make them, and to my surprise, I used both balls! So I had to go to the store get one more ball for my hat (Pattern for this hat coming soon). So please be aware that you will need a lot of yarn for this project. However, it will look great when you are finished. I love it. And so did my daughter because she requested one for her in her preferred color.

This scarf took me 2 full days to finish (and I am reasonably fast in crocheting) - so depending on your width (make your own), length (make your own also), and speed you may be done with it within two (or more days).

Look for a pattern and video of a matching hat in the near future.

Granny Square No 3 - Mesh - For Foggy Dawn Sweater Project

Here is another detailed video tutorial of #3 mesh granny square for crocheters for our Foggy Dawn Sweater Project. If you would like to make this sweater, click on the link "Introduction to this project" below OR on one of the two links for a PLAYLIST (left-handed or right-handed crocheters), to crochet along. My videos are quite detailed for anyone that needs help with crocheting. But if you are more experienced, use it just as a reference and skip some of the parts so you don't get too bored.

Use this pattern for any project - my sweater, a granny square blanket, or any other project that requires crocheted squares.

To crochet this square, you need to know how to crochet chain, slip stitch, single crochet stitch, and double crochet stitch.

Granny Square No 2 - Corner 2 Corner - For Foggy Dawn Sweater

In today's post, I will introduce to you my second granny square for "Foggy Dawn" sweater. This "corner to corner" granny square is unusual, and although as you crochet this square it may seem that it is a diamond - but proper stretching by hand or blocking will help you shape it into a square.
You have to know how to crochet: chain, sl st, single crochet, double crochet, and puff stitch. You can follow my written pattern or crochet along my video (see links below).


Stay tuned for a few more granny squares (including video tutorials in my YouTube Channel) to make your sweater unique.

Granny Square No. 1 For Foggy Dawn Sweater

In my last post, I wrote about "Introduction To Crocheted Sweater 'Foggy Dawn'". There, I published links to videos where I am demonstrating how to join granny squares used for this project.

Today, I will introduce my first granny square for "Foggy Dawn" sweater. Please, take your time and read few pointers (I will talk about them in my videos as well), which I figured out later while I worked on my project, and which lead to my realization that I have to rework parts of my sweater or rejoin squares.
As I mentioned in my "Intro" post you need to attach each "granny" to another one as you go.

So here are tips that will make your work easier:

  • If you are a right-handed crocheter, you should start attaching rows from left to right, and then top down. If you are a left-handed crocheter then you should join squares right to left & from the top down. Start with the back first - from one end of your arm to the other. (Note: I started attaching squares haphazardly and it got more difficult to fit some of them later) 
  • If you are using several colors, make sure that your colors alternate in the best possible way. Plan each square color ahead of time - draw a diagram of your sweater and fill the colors into each square as you would like them on your finished project.
  • Try to alternate your different type of squares so they are also visually pleasing to the eye. Number your squares and write those numbers into each square of your diagram.
  • Leave weaving your tails (ends) as the last task, just in case you need to re-work your joining.
Have fun creating something beautiful. You can use these squares not just for a sweater, but also for blankies, vests, purses (for a purse you would need to sew in a liner), etc.

Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you who finds an error in the written pattern, so please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem. Many future knitters & crocheters from our artsy and crafty virtual world will thank you for your good deed, including myself.
