Main Square (Make 2):

An original pattern with photo tutorials can be found here. Video Tutorials can be found here. 🧶 If you need to look at the photos it can help. Then come back here and finish for assembly.

Color A:  Create a magic circle, or ch 4, and join ends, then…

Rnd 1:  Ch 2, dc 15 into ring, join – 15 dc.

Rnd 2:  Ch 1, sc 2 in sp between dc below, *sc 1 in sp between next dc’s, sc 2 in sp between next dc’s* repeat from * around, sc between last dc (the one directly below ch 1), join – 24 sc.

Rnd 3:  Ch 1, sc 1 in each st around, change to Color B when joining with sl st into 1st sc of round, cut Color A, and weave in tails – 24 sc.

Rnd 4:  Ch 4 (this will serve as your first treble in the tr3tog, so begin the 2nd part of the tr3tog in the next st – not the base of the chain) *tr3tog, ch 5,* repeat from * 8 times, join  in top of 1st tr3tog – 8 tr3tog, 8 ch-5.

Note: if you don’t have 50 stitches at this point, don’t fret. Just frog (pull it out) around 10 or so stitches and add the extras in there somewhere, it won’t throw off the pattern as long as you end this round with 50 sc.

Rnds 7:  Ch 2, (make first stitch of repeat in the base of ch 2), *dc 2, ch 1, dc 2 (in same st), dc 12,* repeat from * 3 times, dc in each of next 10 sts, join in 1st dc of rnd (make join behind dc in bar (see photo), sl st in next back bar of next dc) – 66 sts.

Wonder Woman Crochet Face Mask Cover | Free Crochet Pattern

Wonder Woman Crochet Mask Cover

*Disclaimer:  this mask is not a medical device, it is meant to be worn as a mask cover (to make those surgical masks a little prettier).

Crocheting in a pandemic is the one thing that brings me solace.  Creating something beautiful gives me a sense of accomplishment.  We all feel a bit powerless right now and to counteract that feeling I decided to spice up my surgical mask with something that makes me feel more powerful.

So I crocheted a Wonder Woman face mask covering!  I want to channel my personal power and take back some of the uncertainty, as well as make people smile a bit.  I am always here to help work through my patterns, if you would like to join my pattern support group, you can find that here…

Rainbow Unicorn Graphgan C2C & Row by Row Written Pattern

Rainbow Unicorn c2c Graphgan

Hey Makers!  The Rainbow Unicorn graphgan pattern is finally free! I hope everyone had a great holiday.  Mine was nice.  I’m in the process of moving right now, so honestly, it has been a strange one for sure.  No decorations up, but getting a fresh start for January is nice.

I’m in the process of setting up my crochet studio, and can’t wait to show you guys as it comes along.  Maybe you can help me with decorating tips!  I’m not so good at decorating but working on it. 😊.

Reverse side – Finished Graphgan by Nancy (thank you Nancy!)

The Rainbow Unicorn release is a long time in the making, and I’m very excited to share it with you.  The Rainbow Unicorn graphgan is a project I released last year and have been wanting to release for free for a while now. I hope you all enjoy it.

note: This graphgan has three versions.  A row by row version, and a C2C version in two sizes.  The dimensions are slightly different for C2C versions, and I will cover that in this post.

How Big Will My Blanket Be?

I get this question a lot. To solve this problem I created a couple of calculators that determine how big your blanket will be. These use your own personal tension, hook, and yarn choice.

(click photos to take you to blog post)

Row by Row Crochet Blanket Size Calculator

+ Pattern Notes – Please Read


This pattern includes written C2C instructions, written Row by Row, and a larger graph, all worked bottom up.  😊  If you have any questions about these patterns or need pattern support, please join my Pattern Support Group here:

Please post your creations on my Facebook Page:

***I work C2C using 5 ch’s, and chaining 2***

The traditional C2C is worked by chaining six at the beginning and chaining 3 after slip stitching in the new square, also known as 6/3 C2C.  I find the 5/2 C2C method reduces the size of the holes in the blanket.


Tips

  • Want to make it bigger? Use a larger hook and heavier weight yarn.
  • Make it smaller? Use a single crochet stitch or Tunisian crochet simple stitch, you can also decrease the weight of the yarn.
  • C2C – measurements for C2C using recommended yarn and G hook (4.00mm) will be about 4′ x 4.5′ – Remember to use the C2C calculator to find out how big your blanket will be with your chosen yarn and hook size.

All of these patterns can be worked in a single crochet or Tunisian crochet simple stitch.  Of course, that will alter the dimensions of the blanket, but here are some tips on dimensions:

These beautiful photos were sent to me by a maker who finished the graphgan using Vanna’s Choice yarn, and a G hook (4 mm).

Remember to check your e-mail for the welcome message & your FREE Pattern PDF of the Temperance Ruancho! Glad you are here!

The Temperance Rauncho is a simply elegant design you can dress up or dress down with jeans.  The name has a great story!  My friend Crystal’s daughter’s name is Temperance (after Temperance Brennan from the show Bones), she’s 3 years old.  She said, “It’s a rauncho!” because she tried to say ruana and poncho at the same time 😊, it was too cute!

The Temperance Rauncho was born! This has to be my new favorite go-to for going out, and if it isn’t too cold, it’s perfect. It’s great for wearing around the house too and will perfect for the office.

Temperance Rauncho

A little bit about the yarn…

I used Lion Brand’s Heartland yarn. This is one of my favorite yarns on the market. It is so easy to work with, and the color selections are very earthy, which I love. It comes in a wide variety of tones, with solids, tweeds, and flecks of other colors throughout. You shouldn’t have any issues with this yarn at all. It also rips back easy, so that’s a positive too! 😍

Yarn subs for the Temperance Rauncho…

The best place to check for other yarn substitutes is the Yarn Sub website here.

The beauty of this pattern is you can sub out just about any worsted (4) weight yarn and create it. However, I do recommend trying to match the gauge if you do sub. My tester, Crystal used a Red Heart yarn and a larger hook (because she crochets SUPER tight). Her holes for the beginning border were fairly large, so she modified hers by working Row 3’s stitches into the skipped hdc’s from Row 1 to close the gaps. (see photo below)

Mind you, this will change the look of the pattern slightly.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

As mentioned in the pattern notes below, the pattern is worked in rows. You work the left panel first, then the right panel. You assemble the two panels with a running stitch, then work the border, adding the tassels at the very end.

Tassels

Cut 3 strands around 11-12″ long, fold over and create the tassel. I extended the colors down from the pattern. I added one tassel at the end of each row. When folded over, they measure around 5-6″ long. I didn’t trim them after I attached them, however, I did wet block it. They still have a little bit of a curl to them despite the blocking, but I like that 😀.

Remember to check your e-mail for the welcome message & your FREE Pattern PDF of the Temperance Ruancho! Glad you are here!

The inspiration for the Hydra Spa Set is the scrubby yarn by Red Heart! 😍 I saw this yarn at Micheal’s a few months ago, and thought hmmmmmm….this is really cool! Of course, I had to try it out and after my friend Lidewij of Lilinette Crochet created a cool stitch called the 🌸 Lotus Bud Stitch, I loved it so much, I wanted to use it in my own spa set creation.

It’s also pretty hot now, and I thought hmmmmm…what can I crochet that is not a hat, scarf, or top? Right?

A bath set was the perfect solution and I’m so excited to be releasing this pattern for free today!

This pattern is my first published pattern! It was in the September issue #66 of Happily Hooked Magazine. You can get the issue here on Ravelry. 😃

A little bit about the yarn…

Working with this yarn is a bit of a challenge, because it is difficult to see the stitches, but after a few tries, it ends up working out okay. Here’s a few tips for working with Red Heart Scrubby yarn:

  • It’s hard to count stitches, so keep your measuring tape handy to get the right size. :).
  • Feel it! I found feeling for the stitches helps.
  • This yarn also gets thick and thin in various spots, so make sure you’re working through both top loops of the stitches.
  • Don’t fret. The pattern is so easy to follow, and the stitch count or gauge is not *that* important because sizing doesn’t matter here.

These tips should help you work with the Red Heart Scrubby Yarn. Of course you can use another 3 or 4 weight yarn, or complete the Hydra Spa Set completely in I Love This Cotton, or another similar cotton yarn. I recommend cotton for this set because it’s a natural fiber and softer on the skin.

I hope you enjoy this pattern!

Yarn subs…

I Love This Cotton Sub:  Lilly Sugar N’ Cream Solids, medium weight #4 yarn (100% cotton, 120 yds/109 m per 2.5 oz/70.9 g skein)

Scrubby Sub:  Lily Sugar ’n Cream Scrub Off Yarn, medium weight #4 yarn (100% cotton, 106 yds/97 m per 2.6 oz/75g per skein)

The best place to check for other yarn substitutes is the Yarn Sub website here.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

Hand Scrubby:

The hand scrubby is worked in rows, in one long piece, with a yarn change midway. When you finish the rows, you will work a border, then fold it along the center-line and continue a border to join the pieces together. The handle is worked last.

Back Scrubby:

The back scrubby is worked in rows, in one long piece, then you’ll create a border and the handles.

Face Scrubby:

The face scrubby is worked in two pieces, in the round. The pieces are joined and then the handle is created.

Here is one from my testers! Thank you to all the testers, I really appreciate you working through this pattern with me. Forever grateful 💗 💖 💞

Hi everyone! 👋🏼 Welcome to Stitch Explorers! This week’s stitch is a granny square! ☺. I never do granny squares, but this three-color square was calling to me. It’s not a traditional square because it uses treble crochets, and worked a little different than a traditional granny square.

It turned out really beautiful, and I love the colors 😍. Now I think I need to order more of the Scheepjes in these colors so I can make something pretty with these squares. What do you think? A pillow? Scarf? Blanket? ❓

For the tutorial I used Scheepjes Stone-Washed DK in the following colors:

Color A: 818 – Lilac Quartz

Color B: 801 – Moon Stone

Color C: 811 – Deep Amethyst

What can I make with the Three Color Square?


This square is actually larger than it looks. I used a 3 weight yarn with a 4mm hook, and it measure almost 5.5 ” (13.97 cm). Which is fairly large! So I imagine using a worsted weight yarn or chunky yarn would produce a very large square and so easy to work up a blanket.

Blankets, scarves, cowls, pillow covers, and just about anything you can think of!

Fuzzy Bee Winterset | Free Crochet Pattern | Stardust Gold Crochet

The Fuzzy Bee 🐝 WinterSet was born out of this beautiful yarn that I found at Hobby Lobby called Tender Touch (which happens to be on sale today, but dang, they are sold out of a lot of colors, so maybe head to the local store nearby?)

I wanted to design a set where each aspect (beanie, hand warmers, cowl) use up 1 skein of yarn! It worked out perfectly (almost!) 🤏, so you will need 4 skeins total. I am absolutely in love with this set. They are created using basic stitches with a beautiful textured striped accent.

A little bit about the yarn…

Hobby Lobby Tender Touch is a bulky (5) weight yarn, and comes in all sorts of colors, including soft blues, pinks, browns & gray’s. There are so many to choose from. This yarn has been around for a while and I don’t think it’s going anywhere, but just in case, I will post below some great yarn subs!

Yarn subs…

The best place to check for a yarn substitute is at Yarn Sub website here.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

The Beanie:

The brim is worked first, joined, then worked in rounds to top and sewn together. Add a pom pom as you want.

The Hand Warmers:

These are worked in the round, top down, with thumbs added afterwards.

The Cowl:

The cowl is worked flat in rows and buttons attached.

Here is one from my testers! Thank you to all the testers, I really appreciate you working through this pattern with me. Forever grateful 💗 💖 💞 – Isn’t she adorable!!!

+ Pattern Notes – Please Read


  • Beanie is constructed by working the brim first, then working in the round, with turns.
  • Mittens are worked in the round; thumb is added later.
  • See pattern for where to place first st, if not mentioned in pattern, it is made in same as ch.
  • Always skip stitch behind front post stitchess, unless otherwise indicated.
  • Sizing is written in pattern as follows: (S, M, L, XL)

Tips:  You don’t have to work super tight, make sure you meet the gauge. Some of my testers ended up using more yarn than I did, and I’m not super sure why? 🙃
