Lemon Peel Stitch BeanieThis crochet beanie pattern is part of a pattern bundle using the lemon peel stitch, one of Tahryn’s favourite stitches.

To make this hat, Tahryn used Paintbox Simply Aran yarn, which I couldn’t find on Amazon, but found this gorgeous Blush Marriner Aran with Wool yarn instead!

Crochet Turtleneck Dog Sweater Pattern:

This is just so adorable!! Made by Memory Lane Crochet, you can visit their site to see what else they create by clicking here.

Crochet dog sweater

How it’s made

The turtleneck dog sweater crochet pattern is easy skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches. Additionally you’ll need to know how to work into the front and back posts and loops. You’ll also need to be okay with working into the raw edges.

Crochet pattern info

Hook sizes

6.5mm crochet hook

Yarn

Chunky yarn – 148yd / 136m. We recommend Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn in Baby Pink.

Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn
Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn (Amazon paid link)

Abbreviations

  • ch – Chain
  • blo – Back loop only
  • st/sts – Stitch/stitches
  • sl st – Slip stitch
  • sc – Single crochet
  • hdc – Half double crochet
  • 2hdc – Increase (2 half double crochet in 1 space)
  • sc2tog – Decrease (single crochet 2 together)
  • hdc2tog – Decrease (half double crochet 2 together)
  • BPdc – Back post double crochet
  • FPdc – Front post double crochet

Gauge / tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

6.5mm hook – 2” x 2” = 5 rows of 7 hdc

Finished size

The following measurements are taken of the garment at its smallest size and its stretched size.  Using an acrylic yarn will give your sweater more stretch than other fibres such as cotton.

  • Back length : 16cm
  • Neck circumference : 24cm – 40cm
  • Waist circumference : 42cm – 50cm
  • Leg circumference : 13cm – 20cm

Pattern notes

  • I do not count chains in my stitch count.
  • Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.
  • Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch.

Ebun Hat Pattern

ebun hat crochet pattern
 This hat is available in one size and would fit most adults.

Skills required:

Chain (ch), Foundation crochet cord, Tunisian crochet technique (alternating forward (FP) and return (RP) passes), Tunisian simple stitch (tss), Tunisian purl stitch (tps), Tunisian knit stitch (tks), end row changing colours, changing colours as you go, binding off in Tunisian crochet, blocking, Locking Mattress Stitch.

Skill level:

Finished measurements:

The final cowl measurements (blocked):

51.5 x 28 cm (when ribbing is not folded or 21 cm with folded ribbing) cm (approx. 20.75 in x 11.25 in (when ribbing is not folded or 8.5 in with folded ribbing))

Materials and tools:

Expression Fiber Arts North DK (66% Extra Fine Merino Wool, 34% Pima Cotton | DK | 100 g (3.5 oz) = 241 m (264 yds)) – (A) try this yarn in lilac, and (B) this yarn in powder! 1 skein each.

Gauge:

Blocked Gauge:

5.5 (I/9) mm hook: 19 sts x 15 rows = 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 in) over st pattern

5 (H/8) mm hook: 19 sts x 15 rows= 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 in) over ribbing pattern

 

Stitch guide:

Tunisian crochet stitches are worked in forward and return pass from right to left, with the number of stitches (loops (lps)) increasing on the hook during the forward pass and decreasing during the return pass.

Return pass is worked in the same way for all stitches (rows of stitches) used in this project as follows:  1 ch, *yrh, draw through 2 lps on hook, rep from * until 1 lp on hook.

Edge stitches:

Right edge stitch- This is the first stitch and is not usually worked into because there is one loop on the hook left after completing the return pass of the previous row. This one lp corresponds to the first stitch of the new row.

Left edge stitch- This stitch is referred to in the pattern as the End Stitch (ES) and is crocheted as follows: Rotate the end of the fabric towards yourself, insert the hook under both bars (left and right) of the last st, yrh and pul.

  • First row of Tunisian crochet: Insert the hook in the back bump of second ch from hook, yrh and pul across. Standard return pass.
  • Tunisian simple stitch: Insert the hook from right to left under front vertical bar of the next st, yrh and pul. Standard return pass.
  • Tunisian purl stitch: Bring yarn to the front on the work and hook, insert the hook from right to left under the front vertical bar of the next st, yrh and pul. Standard return pass.
  • Tunisian knit stitch: Insert the hook from front to back between the front and back vertical bar, yrh and pul. Standard return pass.

Bind off: Insert hook from right to left under front vertical bar of the next st, yrh, pul and pull through the lp that is on the hook. One loop remains on the hook.

RP End row changing colours in Tunisian crochet: The new colour is added when finishing the return pass of the previous row and 2 lps are remaining on the hook. Yrh with the new colour and draw through 2 lps.

Changing colours as you go: When changing the colours within a row in Tunisian crochet, place the new strand of yarn over the old strand. This locks the old colour in place and prevent gaps occurring between the different colour sections.

 

Stitch charts:

Ribbing

 

Main stitch pattern (colourwork)

 

Notes:

The Ebun Hat is worked flat, RS facing from right to left, and assembled using the Locking Mattress Stitch along the short sides of the project.

The ribbing is worked in two parts; first half is worked continuously from the foundation cord till Row 10. The project is then placed RS down and another 9 rows of ribbing are worked from the other side of foundation cord, followed by the colourwork section to the top of the hat.

Ribbing is made using smaller hook, while the main body of the hat is made using larger hook.

In the stranded colourwork (the background colour is carried over and wrapped around the pattern colour every 2-3 stitches to avoid loose floats.

It is important to keep the passive yarn taut but not too tight to avoid distorting the diamond pattern), use colour A for tks and colour B for tss (EXCEPT for Rows 40-41, which are in worked colour A). This combination gives the final project a distinct texture.

Both Edge Stitches are worked in colour A.

Instructions:

Ribbing

With A and smaller hook, make crochet foundation cord 98 sts long.

Row 1 FP: Insert the hook under top front and back lps of second st from hook, yrh and pul across. 98 lps on hook.

Row 1 RP and all other RPs: Standard RP.

Row 2: *Tps, 2 tks; rep from * to last st, ES.

Rows 3-9: As Row 2.

Row 10: Bind off.

Place the ribbing RS down with Row 10 being at the bottom. Attach A to the first st of the other side of crochet foundation cord (under front and back lps).

Finishing:

Weave in ends and block to final measurements as in schematic. It is recommended to block the project in two stages, first with the project laid flat and second with the ribbing folded at the crochet foundation cord.

Join two short sides by Locking Mattress Stitch (See Special Techniques).

Turn hat inside out with WS facing. Using yarn needle and approx. 20 in of yarn, thread yarn between every 2-3 sts of last row around the whole row. Pull the yarn tight enclosing the crown. Make a knot securing the closing and turn hat right side out (RS facing). Attach a faux fur pompom using loose ends of drawstring if needed, otherwise these can be woven in on the inside of the hat.

Special techniques:

Foundation Crochet Cord

  1. Make a slip knot allowing enough yarn on the short end for the length of the foundation cord
  2. Place the short end of yarn over the hook from front to back
  3. Yarn over the hook with the long end of yarn and pull through both lps on the hook
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for required number of stitches.

Create this cute winter waves crochet headband with this easy pattern! It looks complicated but it’s not! Lots of great texture and a design that looks like you spent a lot of time on it. Thanks to Traverse Bay, this is a quick make for busy hands!
 

Materials:

Abbreviations:

ch- chain

st(s)- stitch(es)

With contrasting color pull up a st on the side in between the first two rows. Sc in between each st across. Fasten off a long tail and weave it into the first st to join.

Repeat the texture accent every other row for a total of 3 rows.

Weave in all ends.

Cut a small piece of yarn, about 6″. With blunt needle sew together the two rows of color at the ends of the headband and every 12th stitch. Fasten off on the back and weave in ends. Makes sure to weave in your ends securely so it does not unravel.

For the top row, sew together the top and second row of color every 6th stitch. Fasten off on the back and weave in ends.
