Legacy Mandala – Free Crochet Pattern

Ready to start working on your Legacy Mandala pattern? Here we go!

Below is the pattern using UK terminology. You will be able to get your hands on the US version via a pdf from my Ravelry store or LoveCrafts. I’ll work on an NL translation too, but this will take time.


GET THE YARN

You’ll need two skeins of Scheepjes Legacy No. 6 in off-white (ecru) and a wire hoop. I found my 90cm hoop at Lampenkapmaterialen.com here in Almere, but there are places that you can find them everywhere; have a look to see what’s local.

For the yarn, Scheepjes has a full list of stockists on their website, you can search for one close to you.

Chart

Please note, the chart shows only a segment of the full mandala and rounds 15, 17, 25, 27 and 29 slip stitch backwards on the chart. This is to keep the start and finish of the rounds in roughly the same place on the chart. You can ss forward, as normal.

Also note, the chart shows rounds 1-30, when the written pattern has a repeat of rounds 15-24. Please also repeat rounds 15-24 when working from the chart (unless making a smaller mandala).

The chart key has both UK and US terms (dc/sc)

Rainbow Ridge Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

styled photograph of blanket

It’s pattern day!

I LOVED making this blanket SO much! I mean, you know how few blankets I make, right? I simply struggle with making something so huge, it takes me months! This one however, is perfect for my instant gratification heart. I could smash it out relatively quickly as it’s sized for a baby, and the rhythm of the stitches means you just want to keep doing “one more row.”

The Scheepjes Softfun is a wonderful blanket yarn. It has loads of stretch to make it squishy and a bit of weight to add warmth, plus enough cotton to make sure you can still use it all summer long.

No baby? No problem! It also makes a great lap blanket 😉

There will be US terms available on Ravelry and Lovecrafts, and this free version below uses UK terminology.

Nederlandse versie vind je hier.


Get the Yarn

There are five different Softfun colour packs to choose from including Pastel (which I have), Jewel, Rich, Rainbow and Cloud. There are a full list of stockists on the Scheepjes website, but you can also find the packs at your favourite LYS or online retailer including:
Wool Warehouse* (global)
Caro’s Atelier* (NL and Europe)
Love Crafts* (US)
Dot’s Yarn Den (US)
Belle Mae Yarns (AU)

You’ll need one colour pack in the colours you like best, plus 6 balls of Softfun in a complementary colourway. I chose 2622 Latte.


Materials

6 balls of Scheepjes Softfun in 2622 Latte
1 Scheepjes Softfun minis colour pack in pastel
5mm hook (body of blanket)
4mm hook (border)
6mm hook (SS round to begin border)

Tension

18sts and 19 rows over 10 cm in pattern. Stick as close to the tension as possible as the mini balls are limited and you may run out if your tension is looser than indicated.

Measurements

100 x 70cm blocked (will contract a little due to the stretch in the yarn)

Abbreviations

(UK terms)

Ch chain
Ss slip stitch
St(s) stitch(es)
Ch chain
Ch(2)-sp chain (2) space
Dc double crochet
YUdc yarn under double crochet
MC main colour (2622 Latte)
CC(1) contrast colour. Number denotes which colour to be used
Rep repeat
RS right side
WS Wrong side

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked back and forth in rows using the yarn under colourwork technique to make the blanket.  The double border is worked in rounds.

Each row begins with a ch1, this does not count as a stitch.

Work instructions inside brackets and parentheses [(…)] the indicated number of times.

Sort the colours into the following order:

CC1: 2514 Rose
CC2: 2513 Light Rose
CC3: 2620 Starfish
CC4: 2466 Peach
CC5: 2518 Canary
CC6: 2496 Banana

The Carolyn – A Crochet Hat Reveal

Introducing The Carolyn – a celebration of Autumn.

Close up image of woman wearing crochet hat

GET THE YARN

You’ll need two skeins of River Washed and one skein of River Washed XL (or Stone Washed, choose your favourite).

Scheepjes has a complete list of stockists on their website. Most of their retailers stock Stone Washed and River Washed, but if not, don’t be afraid to ask them to get it in!

Wool Warehouse* stocks both River Washed and River Washed XL and ship all over the world.

Black Sheep Wools* in the UK also stocks River Washed and River Washed XL

Here in the Netherlands, Caro’s Atelier* has River Washed and River Washed XL, plus they’re my LYS (and awesome).

In the US check out DotsYarnDen who also stocks River Washed, plus a bunch of other Scheepjes yarns.

In Australia Little Woollie also stocks Stone Washed and Stone Washed XL.


Close up image of woman wearing crochet hat

The Carolyn is a completely different design and construction to most usual hats.

We have a double brim for warmth, which is also shaped in a way so that the crown sits perfectly on your head and snuggles into the back of your neck and keeps your ears covered.

We make the brim first, and then work upwards, decreasing as we go. The puff stitches add a textural dimension and interest, without losing warmth.

The River Washed is warm enough to wear all through the winter, but still breathes so you can wear it on days when there is just a bit of a chill in the air.

Can you sense that I’m a bit obsessed with warmth? Seriously, before I moved to Northern Europe I didn’t even own a proper winter coat, let alone a scarf or hat! Now these three items make up half my wardrobe.

But why Carolyn?

Well. Carolyn is a good friend of mine. She’s a north American who LOVES Autumn and she was the inspiration for the shape of this hat. I like to choose the names of people who are dear to me to name my designs, and Carolyn was the obvious choice. We walk our dogs together and I love her excitement when October rolls around. She’s always extolling her love of this time of year while I’m too busy complaining about the cold 😀

The pattern has been tested, and I’m adding the finishing touches. I plan to launch it in the coming days, so do get your yarn order in. This will make a fantastic Christmas gift for that one person in your life who complains about the cold as much as I do!

A New Crochet Design – Scheepjes Organicon

Aren’t these colours just the best?

I have a seriously cool design coming up, using all of these colours, I can’t wait to share it with you over the coming weeks.


Get The Yarn

Scheepjes has the complete list of stockists available on their website, at scheepjes.com. If your favourite retailer doesn’t have Organicon, you can always ask them to get it in – don’t be shy!

Wool Warehouse* is shipping globally again (with some small delays due to C-19), so you can pick it up there.

As you know, Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store, so I would also love you to support them. They ship all over Europe.

Black Sheep Wools* is one of the best bricks and mortar stores in the UK, and they’ll also ship to you.

(If you own a yarn store and stock Organicon, please feel free to add direct links to your product page in the comments of this post.)


About Organicon

Scheepjes Organicon is a 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, which is part of a strong push toward sustainability and the need to improve production methods and conscious consumption.

A benefit of this is that Organicon is a deliciously soft yarn which is soft on skin and has a beautiful drape for garments and projects for baby.

Not only is Organicon produced in a sustainable way and unbelievably soft, it’s also vegan friendly, containing no animal products from the production of the cotton through to the dyes used to colour the yarn.

Yarn Stats

The yarn comes as 50g balls, with 170 metres.
It’s a 4ply (fingering) weight yarn, and a 3mm hook/needles are recommended.
There are 21 colours to choose from, and what I love is that there are light and bright versions of the same colour, so they all work together and can be interchangeable.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the colours I’m using. You’ll have to wait and follow my Instagram feed to keep up with the progress over the next few weeks.

Just a small hint: my project is huge, and is many, many more balls than the three I’ve just shown you. It’s going to be completely worth the effort, and I’m going to have a great pattern to share with you at the end of it.

Stay tuned!

Berry Smash Cowl – Free Crochet Pattern

It’s pattern day!

Today I’m launching the free version of my latest design – the Berry Smash Cowl!

I’ve been talking about this for the last few weeks, you can see some more pics here: https://missneriss.com/2020/01/18/winter-cowl-reveal/

I asked on Instagram for your suggestions, and Berry was a recurring theme, and I loved the idea of Berry Smash, so here it is!

Winter Cowl, Scheepjes Whirl Fine Art

GET THE YARN

Scheepjes has all of their stockists here.

Wool Warehouse** ships to the UK and globally
Caro’s Atelier** ships to the Netherlands and Europe

Note: this version uses UK terms.  If you’d prefer US terms, or a PDF printer friendly version you can find it on Ravelry for a small fee. As always, the Dutch version will appear in the near future.

6mm (J-10) hook

Your Last Slippers – Crochet Pattern

Are you ready to get started on Your Last Slippers?

IMG_4682

I know I keep saying it, but these babies truly are the last slippers you’ll need.  I’ve made loads of pairs with different patterns over the years, and they always stretch out of shape, or don’t stay on my feet, or are complicated to make.  These are none of those things.  They’ll always stay on thanks to the firm ankle opening, they’re designed to stretch so they’ll fit all feet, and they’re warm.

The free pattern below uses UK crochet terminology.  There is also a printer friendly PDF version available on Ravelry for a small fee, which includes US terms and a chart.

Again, for the Dutchies, a translation is coming, but it always takes me a bit longer.  Sit tight, I’ll get there.  Thanks for your patience!

Want to get your hands on Chunky Monkey for yourself?

Scheepjes has a comprehensive list of stockists so you can find one near you.
Netherlands and Europe: Caro’s Atelier*
UK and global shipping: Wool Warehouse*, Deramores*
Australia: Yarn Inspired

What You’ll Need

1 (2) balls of Scheepjes Chunky Monkey in your colour choice (samples made in 1435 magenta, 2002 orange and 2018 dark grey)
5mm (H-8) hook
Tapestry needle
Blocking mats and pins

Measurements

Kids: 20cm heel to toe
Adults: 23cm heel to toe

Tension

14 sts and 12 rows to measure 10 x 10 cm over htr3lo st, but tension is not important for this project.

Abbreviations

(UK terms)
Ch chain
Sts stitches
dc double crochet
htr half treble crochet
htr3lo half treble crochet in 3rd loop only
dc2tog 2 double crochet stitches decreasing into one stitch
Ss slip stitch
(RS) (WS) right side/wrong side
Rep repeat

Notes

This pattern is two sizes fits all, one for kids, and one for adults. The kids sizes will fit between the ages of about 5 and 10, and then the adult sizes should fit. However, it’s easy to customise the fit, by adding or removing stitches and rows for bigger or smaller feet.
The pattern is worked back and forth in rows to make the body of the foot and sole, then the piece is turned 90 degrees to work the tops of the feet, then the piece is slip stitched together and finished.

The kid’s size will be described, with stitch/row counts in parentheses for the adults. Eg. ch21 (31) or rep row for a total of 20 (22) rows.

Instructions

(Make two)
Row 1 ch 21 (31), dc into second ch from the hook, htr to last, dc in last ch, turn.[20 (30)sts]
Row 2 ch1 (does not count as a stitch here or throughout), dc, htr3lo to the last, dc last, turn .[20 (30)sts].
ow 2 for a total of 20 (22) rows .[20 (30)sts].
Row 21 (23) (RS) Turn work 90 degrees, ss in each row across to have 20 (22) sts, turn
Row 22 (24) (WS) ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), dc in all stitches across, turn [20 (22)sts]
Row 23 (25) (RS) ch1, dc2tog, dc to second last, dc2tog, turn [18 (20)sts]
Row 24 (26) (WS) ch1, dc2tog, dc to second last, dc2tog, turn [16 (18)sts]
Rows 25 (27)-31 (32) rep row 24 7 (8) times until the stitch count is 2.
Tie off, cut yarn.

Turn work 180 degrees, and ensuring that you work on the RS, attach yarn to the opposite corner and repeat rows 21 (23) to rows 31 (32). Do not tie off.

Assembly

Take your work and fold it in half, triangle edges together, RS facing each other. Using the yarn that is not tied off, ss down one side of the triangle, and then all the way to the bottom. Tie off. This has formed the toe.

slipper laid flat

Now working at the heel, join the yarn at the bottom, ss the two sides together to the start of the triangle. Now turn the slipper the right way out, and leaving an opening for the foot, dc in each row around, working a dc2tog at the top of the triangle. SS to join. Cut yarn, weave in all ends.

photo to assemble

There are a couple of points where you can adjust the foot opening in that round; you can skip the dc2tog to make a slightly looser fit, or you can work a second dc2tog at the heel before joining.

To make a larger size, add rows in multiples of two in the first stage. This will also make your triangles larger, but you can skip sts while slip stitching across the in the foundation triangle row to give the slipper more length but a firmer top.

467B415F-2468-47D8-A690-F8263D61512D

What You’ll Need

1 skein of Scheepjes Whirl in your colour choice.  Colours used in this pattern are Dark Grape Squish and Coral Catastrophe
4mm (G) hook
Tapestry needle

Measurements

160 x 120 cm blocked

Tension

23 sts and 14 rows (in pattern) to measure 10 x 10 cm (4in) using a 4mm (G) hook

Abbreviations

(UK terms)

Ch chain
Miss miss instructed number of stitches
Htr half treble crochet
2htrcl  2 half treble cluster (see notes)
HtrInc Half treble increase (2 htr in the same stitch)

Notes

This is a beginner friendly pattern, worked back and forth in rows, increasing at one side only.  The shawl will become a large triangle.

Repeat instructions between brackets (…) where instructed.

Ch2 at the beginning of each row, this does not count as a stitch throughout.

The 2htrcl at the end of each second row is to straighten the edge, making a border redundant. To work the 2htrcl, yarn over hook, insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over hook, pull through 2 loops, insert hook, pull up a loop, yarn over hook, pull through all loops.

Stitch counts are deliberately left out of this pattern to condense the length.  Each row will increase by one stitch. Remember, when working a fast lane (htr, ch1, miss 1) row, you should always have an odd stitch count.  The return row will be even.

Instructions

Row 1 Ch3, 2htr in the third ch from the hook, turn.
Row 2 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch here or throughout), htr in the same, ch1, 2htrcl in the last. Turn
Row 3 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, htr in the ch space, htrInc in the last, turn.
Row 4 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, ch1, htr next, ch1, miss 1, 2htrcl in the last, turn.
Row 5 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, (htr in ch space, htr), repeat to and into second last, htrInc.
Row 6 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, ch1, (htr, ch1, miss 1) to and into second last, 2htrcl.
Row 7 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, htr to and into second last (including ch spaces), htrInc.

Repeat rows 6 and 7 five more times.

Now work the slow lanes:

Row 18 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htrInc in the same, htr to and into second last, 2htrcl.
Row 19 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, htr to and into second last, htrInc.
Row 20 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, ch1, (htr, ch1, miss 1) to and into second last, 2htrcl
Row 21 Ch2 (does not count as a stitch), htr in the same, htr to and into second last (including ch spaces), htrInc

Repeat rows 18-21 twice more.

Now work in the following sets:

(Repeat rows 6 and 7 seven times, then repeat rows 18-21 three times), which will create one full set of fast and slow lanes.

Continue in these sets until there is just enough yarn so that you will finish with a slow lane.  Do not finish on a row 6/7 repeat alone. If the tension has been matched, there will only be a small amount of yarn left over. Weave in ends and block to size.

rainBOOM! Wrap – Crochet Pattern with US Terms

Welcome!

I’ve updated the the rainBOOM! Wrap pattern, just in time to kick off the #rainBOOMMAL in collaboration with Scheepjes. Is this the first you’ve heard of it? All the info can be found in this post.

Before we start, if you’re looking for the version which uses UK terms go here, and the Dutch translation can be found here.

In this version you can find the pattern using UK terminology. I also have a tips and tricks post (which will be online Wednesday 30th Jan) which talks about all the little things that you may find to be a bit challenging, including a couple of short videos which should help if you get stuck at all.

Ready to go?

Materials

One Stone Washed River Washed Colour Pack (all fifty colours)
5mm crochet hook
Tapestry needle
Blocking mats/pins

Measurements

Ch chain stitch
Inc increase – two double crochet stitches in one stitch
DC2tog decrease – double crochet made over 2 stitches from previous row.
(…)
repeat instructions between brackets as directed.
[801] denotes colour number from the yarn label.

Notes

This is a beginner friendly pattern, designed touse all 50 colours of the Scheepjes Stone Washed and River Washed colourpack. 

The wrap will be constructed in two pieces,working back and forth in rows. First making two triangles, then diagonal rows,and finally joining the two pieces and adding tassels from the leftovers.  There will be minimal yarn left over, so do payattention to your tension. Use either colour 801 or 803 and make a swatch.

At the start of each row you should ch2, thiswill not count as a stitch throughout. At the end of each row you should turnyour work. The instruction is only mentioned in rows 1 and 2, as a reminder.

While making the triangle, the rows willincrease by 3 stitches each side (6 per row), with an increase at the flatedge, and in the ch space. Weave in your ends as you go, this will vastlyreduce the amount of work at the end of the project.

Where the colour number is noted at the beginning of a row [801], you should tie off at the previous row and start using the next colour.

[815]
[825]
[953]
[951]
[954]
[826]
[806]
[819]

Make sure you always start your new colour on the long side, not where you tied off on the short side. This will ensure that you always have a straight edge on both sides.

Repeat rows 38 and then 37 with colour [827], then saving a long tail, whip stitch the two pieces together, with the long edge of piece two matching up with the point of piece one. Don’t pull the stitches too tight, otherwise a ridge will appear.

[827]
[962]
[812]
[959]
[832]

Make sure you always start your new colour on the long side, not where you tied off on the short side. This will ensure that you always have a straight edge on both sides.

Repeat rows 38 and then 37 with colour [809],then saving a long tail, whip stitch the two pieces together, with the longedge of piece two matching up with the point of piece one. Do not pull thestitches too tight, otherwise a ridge will appear.

Tassels

Separating the leftover colours from piece one and piece two, cut 30-40cm lengths, and double stranded, knot tassels in each stitch along both short (diagonal) sides. Adjust spacing according to the amount of remaining yarn. Block to size, enjoy!

Chart

Do note: the chart is just an example of how you should begin, and how the diagonal rows are worked. Please do not follow this exactly from the start, but instead use it as a guide
