A Little About Me

Hi maker! My name is Jade, and I’m the designer behind Jaded Crafts and Creations. I started knitting 3 years ago after a tough personal loss. I heard that knitting was a great way to relax but also keep your hands and mind busy, which was just what I needed! I took a class (thank you, Michael’s) where I learned basic stitches. I enjoyed knitting but it didn’t flow well for me, however, my obsession with yarn was already deeply imbedded! 

A few months later, a friend taught me a few crochet stitches. I was instantly hooked! (Ha!). I practiced crochet for the rest of that day and almost everyday thereafter. I often found myself adjusting patterns to better fit my needs and eventually started making my own designs. I enjoy creating home decor items and women’s fashion but may soon be dabbling in some baby items as well. 

I’m also a Mom to a sweet 6 month old baby girl. She makes appearances often as she’s is a great little model! Finding the balance between Mom life and business life has been tough but I’m slowly pursuing my passion again, one nap at a time!

Inspiration

The inspiration for this pattern came after completing my first cabled blanket. I was so amazed by the way a simple front post stitch could add so much dimension to a project! I also love working with Bernat Blanket yarn, so I look for any opportunity to use it! It’s a very cozy, chenille style yarn and works up with gorgeous texture. This boho twist scarf is like a beautiful portion of a cabled blanket! It’s an oversized long crochet scarf, super warm, and luxuriously soft.

Techniques Used in the Pattern

Cabled projects can seem daunting if you’ve never tried them, but you’ll soon find them addicting! This is definitely a technique you’ll want to learn! You have to pay careful attention to counting your stitches. However, it’s no harder than following a regular pattern, and the results are pretty amazing! Soon this braided crochet cable pattern will come naturally to you. Since this is made in Bernat Blanket Yarn, the big stitches will help you keep track of your cables, and help make this an easy crochet pattern. Let’s get to the pattern!

Boho Twist Blanket Scarf Pattern:

Row 3: (Cable fountain): 2SC, 2FPTC, 2SC, 6FPTC, 2SC, 2FPTC, 2SC. CH1, Turn. (8SC,10FPTC) *This row sets where your cables will be for the rest of your scarf*

Row 4: Same as row 2. (18SC)

Row 5: *Work front posts around front posts from last row. Work single crochets into current row. Single crochets anchor the cables.*

2SC, 2FPTC, 2SC, 6FPTC, 2SC, 2FPTC, 2SC. CH1, Turn. (18SC,10FPTC)

Row 6: Same as row 2.

Row 7: 2SC, 2FPTC, 2SC, Skip 3 FPTC, 3FPTC, go back and work 3 skipped FPTC (You are crossing back to the skipped stitches. This creates the cable twist.) 2SC, 2FPTC, 2SC. CH1, Turn.

Row 8: Same as row 2. * be sure to count your stitches, it’s easy to miss one in the cable crossover.*

Row 9: Same as row 3. * First 3 FPTC will be hidden behind cable crossover. You can see them from the back – it helps to grab hold of the stitch to make sure you get the right one.*

Repeat rows 2-9 until desired length – ending on row 9. CH1, turn.

To finish:

Row 1: SC across, CH1, turn.

Row 2: SC across. Tie off leaving a 9 inch tail (if you are having fringe)

Add 1 piece of fringe to each SC. To add fringe: fold one strand in half, insert into SC, bring end of strands through the loop (created by folding in half), pull tight.

This pattern doesn’t have fun summer vibes but I know a lot of you are working hard on the fall market prep! Bernat has some new colours and the burnt mustard is drool worthy! Does that get any more perfect for fall? I think it would look gorgeous with this pattern… just saying!

How to Crochet a Convertible Wrap

It’s time for another guest blog post here on the E’Claire Makery blog, and this week I’m featuring a beautiful convertible crochet wrap sweater from Susanna of Crochet Fosbas. I love crochet garments that can be worn all sorts of different ways, and one of my favorites is how many ways you can wear a crochet wrap. This free easy crochet wrap pattern has so many different ways that you can wear it! Wear it as a crochet wrap scarf, a wrap sweater, a wrap with a hood, and so many more. It’s an awesome versatile pattern that can be worn in an endless combination of ways!

What makes this design even better is that you can do it in any weight of yarn. Isn’t that awesome?! For this pattern, Susanna designed it using Hobbii Cotton Kings yarn, which is a fingering weight yarn. In her pattern she says that this crochet wrap can be made with more types of yarn though too. It will just change how heavy it is. If you don’t have access to Hobbii yarns and want to use a fingering weight, Red Heart It’s A Wrap Yarn or Lion Brand Shawl in A Cake would be great substitutes.

With that, let’s get to Susanna’s pattern!

Love this design? Pin it to your favorite Pinterest Board!

I’m Susanna Biaye the face behind @crochet_fosbas. I’m a wife and Mum to a Toddler. I learned knitting and crocheting from my Mum when I was about 8, I made lots of baby Booties and beanies then. I had a break from crafting while I focused on my studies. However, after many years, my interest was rekindled during my baby’s pregnancy since I wanted to make all his needed cardigans, booties, blankets. The rest is history!

Since then, I’ve made lots of items majorly accessories and clothing items. This craft has become part of me and I love every moment. I also have few of my patterns published in Crochet Magazine (Happily hooked Magazine). I’m honored to be sharing my pattern with you here.

The pattern was inspired by my first ever convertible beanie (I love making convertibles)! I’ve always wanted designs which can be used in different ways and serving numerous purposes. This wrap design fits those two purposes, and I hope you love it as much as I do. The design itself can be adapted to many different sizes. This pattern is made by crocheting a VERY wide rectangle (which would wrap around the chest) and then the sleeves. The good news is that – There are no sewing! It is basically a repeat of same stitches but they won’t bore you.

Supplies:

    • Estimated yarn: S -1093 yards, M – 1311 yards, L – 1575 yards XL – 1575 yards
    • I strongly recommend using a light weight yarn for this project– I have included the gauge and measurement of each petal, to make it easier. Please note that if using a worsted weight yarn, it would be bulky and fit perfectly as a winter wrap
  • Hook – 4.0mm (G/6)
  • Yarn needle (to sew in the ends)
  • Scissors

Gauge:

For cotton 4 ply – 30DC, 6 rows = 7” by 3”

Skill level – intermediate

Pattern size calculation: (chest – bust) measurement x 1.5) + (sleeve length x 2)

i.e for small – chest measurement is 34”, sleeve = 18” = (34 x 1.5) + (18 x2)

Notes:

  1. Each petal measures approximately = (using cotton 4ply yarn – 2” wide and 1.5” tall)(worsted weight yarn – 2.5” wide and 2”tall)
  1. Numbers of petals per size is as follows, Small – 20 petals, m – 21 petals, l – 24 petals, X-large – 26 petals
  1. Number of starting chains is 15 x number of petals + 2 (Chains are in multiples of 15 plus 2)
  2. The first part to be made is the part labeled A, while the sleeve is then made on the sides of the large rectangle
  3. The breath of the front panel must be wide enough to wrap around your upper arm
  4. You can decide to make a short sleeve
  5. You can use a bigger hook to make your chains, or make your chains loosely, which would make working on the chains much easier. do not forget to switch back to 4.0mm hook

Soceles Triangle Wrap: Free Crochet Triangle Shawl Pattern by Christa Co Designs

Looking for a gorgeous triangle wrap pattern that is fantastic for those spring and summer days, or to cuddle up with in fall or winter? Well you’re in luck because today my guest blogger, Crystal from Christa Co Design is sharing her beautiful Soceles Triangle Wrap free crochet pattern on the blog this week!

A simply accessory that can add a lot of style to any outfit, the triangle scarf is one of my favorite crochet accessories to make or wear. When I saw this pattern, I was instantly in love! It is a super simple design that is made with double crochets, but it has this modern style to it that I just love. This pattern is the perfect triangle wrap to make anytime of the year, and will also work up super fast.

Another thing that I loved about this design is that Crystal used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn, which is a beautiful and very affordable yarn that you can get at almost any craft store. I use this yarn a lot in making amigurumi, but it would also be ideal for crochet garments or accessories if you want a yarn with a great price point that comes in lovely colors. If you don’t like this yarn, another great option would be Red Heart Soft yarn.

Are you excited about this pattern yet? I know I am! With that, I am happy to introduce Crystal and her Soceles Triangle Wrap to you.

Hi, I’m Crystal, the designer and blogger at ChristaCoDesign.com! I am so honored to be able to share one of my patterns here with you on Claire’s blog. Her designs are just so adorable and inspiring!

I love creating modern, fun and easy patterns for the family, especially garments. I actually never crocheted a garment until I started designing my own. I kept to hats and little things, but I’ve since grown to love crochet clothing. I aim to keep my designs simple enough for beginners, and love including photos or videos to help you along the way.

I’m a mama to my four little loves who simply adore it when I create special things for them. Since I have 3 boys quite a few of my creations are geared toward them. We were blessed last with a daughter, so really I get the best of both worlds! As you can imagine they keep my busy in the best ways, and that’s another reason my designs stay simple-this mama doesn’t
have time for counting!

Carry The World Crochet Tapestry Crochet Bag Free Crochet Pattern

Every time around April I find myself thinking of ways that I could help protect this beautiful planet we live on, and one of my favorite practical ways to do this is to use re-useable tote bags! Growing up I lived in San Luis Obispo County, which was one of the first counties in the U.S.A. to get rid of plastic bags being used in stores. At first it was so strange to get used to bringing my own bags everywhere, and I didn’t like that extra step at all. However, I soon learned that making and buying reusable tote bags can be completely addicting! So as I was trying to come up with some ways that I could crochet to help the planet, I was inspired to design my Carry the World Tapestry Crochet Bag!

Inspiration Behind Design

This inspiration for this design mainly came from my desire to use crochet to help the planet during Earth Day. A lot of times using reusable bags can be at the back of your mind when you are shopping because it’s so much easier to just use plastic. If you love to crochet, guess what? We can make our own fun bags! We can combine one of our favorite things to do along with using a little less plastic. It’s a win win!

Giving Back

Along with thinking about making reusable bags, I also wanted to create a pattern where I could use some of the proceeds from the design to give back to a non profit organization. I thought that making a pattern around earth day was the perfect way to raise some money to help some great causes that are helping protect our planet! Half of the proceeds from the paid version of this pattern are going to an organization that I think is aligned with exactly what I was hoping for. The organization I chose is the Surfrider Foundation. Growing up by the beach, I’ve had an awareness of how much we need to help take care of the ocean. The Surfrider Foundation does a wonderful job of not only bringing awareness, but also helps clean up the beaches and takes actionable steps to protecting the ocean. I’m a huge lover of the ocean, so this charity is perfect for what I wanted to do! I’m so excited to be donating half of the money from this pattern to them.

How You Make It

Sometimes having to make a bunch of different pieces for a crochet bag pattern makes me not want to make it at all, so I decided to simplify the different steps of this pattern. The main part of the bag is crocheted in one piece using half double crochets, and then you sew up the sides of the piece to make the bag. I used a combination of tapestry crochet and intarsia crochet to create the globe on the front of the bag. You can really use either technique, but I often find myself doing a lot of tapestry crochet to carry the yarn throughout crocheting. The straps of this tapestry crochet bag are created by using both the blue and green yarns I made the globe from, and together they create this beautiful sea foam color! All in all it’s a super straightforward bag!

The Yarn

Now, let’s talk about the yarn. In an effort to cut back on spending more on yarn, I decided to use some pastel yarns I had in my stash. I wanted the bag to have an old world map type of coloring, and Premier Yarns Everyday combined with Hobby Lobby was the perfect combination. I love using Premier Yarns Everyday because it is super soft, and it is anti pilling so you don’t get all of those flyaways from the yarn. Hobby Lobby was such a beautiful green color to pair with the other yarns, and it has a really nice sturdiness to it because it’s made with a combination of acrylic and cotton yarns. Together these yarns created a nice and sturdy crochet tote bag that I can’t wait to take on all of my shopping or library excursions. Let’s get to the pattern!
