A BIG Announcement!

Well hello there everyone! I’m Esme, a crochet designer from the beautiful East of England, and I’m thrilled to be working with Scheepjes to bring you the SNAGGLETOOTH MAKE-ALONG, or MAL for short! This MAL kicks off on September 22 and runs for 4 weeks. 


This beautiful, geometric Snaggletooth throw is made using the 2-row mosaic crochet technique, and even if you have never tried it before or need to brush up on your skills, don't worry! I'll be giving you lots of step-by-step help, top tips and pictures to get you Snaggletoothing in no time!

If you want to get involved, the Scheepjes Snaggletooth MAL will be taking place on these facebook pages:


OFFICIAL SCHEEPJES INTERNATIONAL GROUP


And 


OFFICIAL SCHEEPJES NEDERLANDSE GROEP



You’ll find plenty of help and support from the amazing Scheepjes team and from myself there, so I look forward to seeing you all and having a look at all your amazing projects! I am delighted to tell you the pattern will be available for FREE on Ravelry, as my gift to you from the start of the MAL on 22 September! But if you would like to get ahead and start early, the Snaggletooth pattern is available to purchase in both ENGLISH and DUTCH on Ravelry HERE and on Etsy HERE right now. But of course if you prefer, just wait until 22 September when you can receive the pattern for free using the code ScheepjesMAL on Ravelry! This code will be available for the duration of the MAL from 22 September to 20 October.


In addition, pop in here to my blog every week from 22 September to 13 October 2021 to find lots of information, explanation and inspiration to help you on your Snaggletooth journey! In Week 1, we’ll be looking at the technique of 2-row mosaic crochet with a handy step-by-step photo tutorial. Week 2 will be all about the edging techniques. Tassels and pompoms will be on our minds in Week 3, and Week 4 will wrap everything up with looking at different colourways, yarn weights, and how easy it is to adjust the pattern to make Snaggletooth your own!


DESIGN INSPIRATION

This is a design which encompasses everything I love about crochet: It’s bold, it’s fun, it’s geometric and cool, and most of all, it’s far easier to make than it looks! My kind of crochet! 

My inspiration for Snaggletooth is of course a traditional houndstooth pattern. I found this gorgeous yellow and black coat in a charity shop and HAD to try and make a crochet houndstooth design. Much chart work and frustration followed, until I got it! I’m so pleased with its simplicity and style.




And the name comes from my cat Hank Deluxe as he pulls some really excellent snaggletooth faces. Like many cats, he often has a tooth hanging out which makes him look fierce and cute at the same time.



WHAT DO YOU NEED?

To make your very own version of this lovely throw with its zingy pink pattern and fun yellow edging, you will need the following yarn:

Scheepjes Colour Crafter (100% Premium Acrylic (Anti Pilling); 100g/300m):

Yarn A: 2017 Verviers x 3 balls for the background

Yarn B: 1257 Hilversum x 3 balls for the pink zing!

Yarn C: 1712 Nijmegen x 1 ball for the edging and pompoms

Plus a 5.5mm crochet hook, and a 65mm pompom maker or some cardboard to make pompoms, should you wish! (Pompoms not obligatory... I just happen to be obsessed with them.)


BONUS PATTERN

In addition to the Colour Crafter version, I thought it would be fun to show you how great this design looks using different yarn weights and hook sizes. So, at the end of the pattern, you will find all the information you need to make a version in Scheepjes Chunky Monkey yarn, which is just SO SQUISHY and COSY! I totally love this version! This heavy hitter (it weighs in at 1.8kg!) is made from the following:

Scheepjes Chunky Monkey (100% Premium Acrylic (Anti Pilling); 100g/116m):

Yarn A: 1011 Slate x 9 balls

Yarn B: 2017 Stone x 8 balls

Yarn C: 1422 Aqua x 3 balls

on a 6.5mm crochet hook.

As the pattern is completely adjustable to a starting chain multiple of x 14 + 6, I reduced the starting chain to ch118, so I had 117 dc at the end of Row 1.





FUN WITH COLOUR

But of COURSE I want you to have fun, explore the colours, go your own way with your interpretation of this pattern, because this is a project all about you making it your own. To help you get the colour ideas flowing, I have made a colouring chart to help you try out some combinations. You’ll need 2 colours for the main throw, then an extra colour (combined with one of the main colours if you like) for the edging.

You can download the handy colouring chart HERE

Here are some of my own charts which I coloured in to play along!






In addition, I really want to share some fantastic versions made by the crochet community to give you even more ideas! Check out these beauties from some of my friends and testers on the socials:


Anneli from @kottaia100 has used some beautiful soft shades of Stone Washed













This vibrant orange version in Colour Crafter is by Claire @crochetfromtheoast












Fabulous: it looks so cool when you invert the pink and white! This beauty is by Benita from @senoritabenita

This amazing purple and black Snaggletooth is being beautifully modelled by its maker, the lovely Toyah from @penelopeandthesquish, made in Colour Crafter








...and last but not least this lovely coral and teal version in Softfun by Erin from @USC2000












Thanks so much to everyone for letting me share their fabulous pictures with you all!


So that's it for now, I hope I have whetted your Snaggletooth appetites and I look forward to seeing you here on September 22 for Week 1 of the MAL, where we start making a swatch using this fantastic 2-row mosaic crochet technique. See you then!

How to crochet a 2-tone granny square

Well hello there! Long time no ramble. So, as many of you wanted this pattern for my easy 2-tone diagonal granny square, I thought I'd give you the pattern here. To make the big crazy technicoloured blanket for my niece, I used a 5mm hook and an assortment of random DK yarn in clashy colours. Once I'd made as many squares as I needed, I simply slip stitched them together to join, before adding a border. Hank Deluxe approves... I think??


Here is the basic pattern, which uses UK crochet terms. Once you get to Round 5, you will be on a roll, so it's easy to add further rounds to make your squares bigger using exactly the same method. I think I made these squares using 8 rounds.

Hints and tips

1. Turn work over at end of each Round, where indicated, working next Round on opposite side.

2. Each square is made of 2 colours, both yarns stay connected throughout. Leave the yarn not in use dangling down, ready to pick up again later. Fasten off both yarns when square is complete.

3. Blocking each square before joining makes for a beautiful crisp finish. Join squares together by placing 2 squares with RS tog and slip stitch into outside stitches on edge only.

Pattern Instructions

With Yarn A, ch4, join with ss into first ch to form a ring. 

Round 1 (RS):  Ch3 (counts as first tr throughout), 2tr into ring, ch2, 3tr into ring, ch1. Change to Yarn B by dropping Yarn A  to rear of work, then draw through loop of Yarn B. Do not fasten off Yarn A. With Yarn B, ch1, (3tr into ring, ch2) twice. Join with ss into top of ch-3 in Yarn A from start of round. Gently tie loose end of Yarn B onto Yarn A at your colour change-over point to secure. [3 tr per side made]. Turn work over to work next round on reverse side.

Round 2  (WS):  With Yarn B, ss into ch-2 sp just made, ch3, 1tr into same ch-sp, 1tr in each tr from previous round to next ch-2 sp, (2tr, ch2, 2tr) in ch-2 sp, 1tr in each tr from previous round to next ch-2 sp, (2tr, ch1) in ch-2 sp where colours join from previous round. Change to Yarn A by dropping Yarn B to rear of work, pick up Yarn A and pull through loop of Yarn A making a single strand to same height as a tr st (this strand does not count as a st throughout, it should be ignored!), ch1, 2tr in same ch-2 sp. Gently pull Yarn B to secure. 1tr in each tr to next ch-2 sp, (2tr, ch2, 2tr) in ch-2 sp, 1tr in each tr to next ch-2 sp, making final tr into top of ch-3 from start of previous round, in same place as the Yarn B join can be seen. (2tr, ch2) in ch-2 sp. Join with ss into top of ch-3 in Yarn B from start of round. [7 tr per side]. Turn work over.

Round 3 (RS): With Yarn A, ss into ch-2 sp just made, ch3, 1tr into same ch-sp, 1tr in each tr to next ch-2 sp, (2tr, ch2, 2tr) in ch-2 sp, 1tr in each tr to next ch-2 sp, (2tr, ch1) in ch-2 sp where colours join from previous round. Change to Yarn B (using colour-change method as described in Round 2). Ch1, 2tr in same ch-2 sp. Gently pull Yarn A to secure. 1tr in each tr to next ch-2 sp, (2tr, ch2, 2tr) in ch-2 sp, 1tr in each tr to next ch-2 sp, making final tr into top of ch-3 from start of previous round, in same place as Yarn A join can be seen. (2tr, ch2) into ch-2 sp. Join with ss into top of ch-3 in Yarn A from start of round. [11 tr per side]. Turn work over.

Round 4:  Rep Round 2. [15 tr per side]

Round 5:  Rep Round 3. [19 tr per side]. Fasten off Yarn A and Yarn B, weave in all ends securely.

Block squares to shape. Arrange squares as you wish, then join together (see Hints and tips) before adding the Edging.

Edging

Use 4.5mm hook if a slightly tighter edging is preferred.

Round 1:  Join yarn into any st on edge, 1dc into each st around, (1dc, ch2, 1dc) in each of the four corners. Join with ss into first dc.

Round 2: Ch1, rep Round 1.

Fasten off yarn, weave in all ends.


This technique is so versatile! You can go with a random pattern, or a very stylish geometric pattern like this:


This version is called Wild Goose Chase and I made it using an aran yarn and 6mm hook. It first appeared in Crochet Now magazine, issue 16.


OK, that's it for now, hope you enjoy this pattern!

New Kid On The Block: A funky throw and a fab tote bag!

Oh the joy of mosaic crochet! So versatile! With a single design 'recipe' you can happily fall down the mosaic rabbit hole into as many project variations as you please! In this blog I'm going to talk you through how to adapt one of my most popular designs, New Kid On The Block, from this rather beautiful throw into a funky and useful tote bag.


I absolutely love this design, it's based on a teacup my Granny owned in the 1970s. She loved her cups of tea and the teacup had to be the right one. Very discerning, Granny Rosa was! This beautiful blue and off-white throw shows off the blocky pattern really well. Then it dawned on me that this pattern would look equally fun as a tote bag. Practical, sturdy and simple to make, this bag gets a lot of good comments when it goes with me to the supermarket. Maybe it's the bright orange happy vibes... 


So, let's get making. To start, you'll need to get your hands on the New Kid On The Block Throw pattern (available in my Etsy Shop here and Ravelry Shop here). Next, follow the stages below. Remember you can use any yarn, any colours you like for your tote. This is a great stash-busting proj. 

I used:

Scheepjes Colour Crafter

Yarn A: The Hague (1256) x 2 balls

Yarn B Zandvoort (1218) x 2 balls

Hook Size 3.5mm (or a hook to suit your yarn, you are aiming for a fairly tight weave to your crochet fabric so it is dense and strong)

Other Materials

You will need lining fabric if you wish to line your bag (I recommend you do, just to make it stronger). A cotton/calico fabric works well. You could use an old sheet, pillow case, or even an old item of clothing if you want to upcycle.

I used upholstery jute webbing for my handles (2 lengths of approx. 75cm, but you can make handle length to suit you). Again, to upcycle, you could use old fabric or leather belts as handles, or sew simple long strips of fabric into a 'tube' on the wrong side, then turn to the right side to cover the raw edges. Get creative!

Needle, thread and pins (a sewing machine is useful but not essential, you can hand-sew if you prefer. I machine sewed mine for strength) 

Other Info

Panels are worked from the bottom up. Pattern works to a multiple of (x 12 chain) + 4 chain for your starting chain (e.g. ch40 or ch52 etc), then work the pattern from Foundation row 1. Your starting chain length will be approximately the width of your bag, so make your chain to a length to suit you.

How to make your bag

To make the front and back panels (make 2 identical panels):

With Yarn A, ch76 (or length to suit, using the multiple above).

Now follow the pattern from Foundation row 1, (you will have 75 dc at the end of row 1 for my version). 

Foundation rows 2-6: Ch1 (does not count as a st throughout), 1dc in each st to end, turn. [75 dc per row]. Change colour to Yarn B at end of Foundation row 6.

Now follow the Main Pattern from rows 1-22 once, then work from rows 3-22 a further 4 times. 

Finish with 6 rows of dc sts in Yarn A to make the top edge of the bag. Fasten off, weave in ends. Note that these 2 panels are NOT edged like the throw.

Assembly

Measure the height and width of one of the crocheted panels before you start sewing. Cut out 2 identical pieces of lining fabric to the same width as the panel, but add 2cm to the height for the top seam. Put to one side.

Panels

Place the 2 crocheted panels together, with the wrong side facing out. Tack or pin along side, bottom and other side edges, then hand or machine sew around these 3 sides with a 1cm seam allowance. To add depth to the bag if required, make box corners: With wrong side still facing out, pinch each bottom corner to make a triangle, so the side seam sits directly on top of the bottom seam. With seams opened out to reduce bulk, sew a straight line across, 2cm in from the corner to make a triangle. Sew the loose corners to the bottom of the bag to hold in place. Turn to right side out.

Lining

Join the 2 pieces of lining fabric togther in the same way as the crocheted panels, including the box corners if necessary. Note that a wider seam (e.g 1.5cm) might be necessary as the lining will be slightly narrower to fit inside the bag. Check to get this right before sewing. Once sewn, and with wrong side still facing out, fold down and iron a 2cm hem around the top edge onto the wrong side. Insert the lining into the bag with right side showing inside. The lining should sit just under the top edge so it is not visible on the outside. Pin or tack into place, then neatly sew it into place, approx. 0.5cm under the top edge.

Handles

If you are using jute webbing like me, fold each end under by approx. 2cm so no raw edges are visible. Pin each handle into position on the outside of the bag, at a length to suit you. My handles measure 3cm down from the top edge of the bag, but of course, adjust to suit you. Sew handles securely in place to finish. If you don't want the handles visible on the front and back of the bag, sew them to the inside instead.

And there you have it, one absolutely fabulous original tote bag! Don't forget, now you know how to adapt this pattern, you could use it to make lots of other things, such as cushion covers, rugs, all sorts of geometric fun...

Happy Mosaic Crocheting!

A Gift for You! Free pattern and colouring project!

Hi there everyone! Such exciting news today, about an amazing designer-maker-illustrator called Florencia. You have to check her out! She goes by the name Ullvuna, and she is wonderful! Once I'd seen her work (I'm talking stunning tapestry crochet and she's also rather well-known in the pin loom world for her work, including a book called 100 Pin Loom Squares), I had to get involved. Here's her blog:

Ullvuna Blog

Anyway, she wanted to offer a free crochet pattern and colouring project for you all, I mean what an incredible gesture. What with the state of the world right now, I'm all for sharing creativity so I said yes. Immediately! Florencia lives thousands of miles away in Chile, so this is an international project!!

So, we set about it. I offered my Starflower pattern, which is a beautiful hexagon motif with a big flower in the middle, as the name suggests. Florencia made the pattern into a colouring diagram, and also made her own hexagon- I love this picture of her!


...And here are the hexies I made... you can make a few and join them to make a little baby blanket or a throw for cold winter evenings...


... AND here's what the colouring page looks like!



So, if you'd like all this lovely creative joy for free, just click HERE for the downloadable pdf. 

With love from me in the UK and the lovely Florencia many many miles away. Reaching out across the world to collaborate! That's creativity at its finest I think. I hope one day Florencia and I might meet. I need to give that woman a hug... when hugs are back on the menu...

HOPE

This doesn't need much introduction... 


Here's the free pattern for my HOPE design; it comes from a deep need to connect with you all, to create, to cling onto what hope we can in these strange times. Creativity goes hand in hand with hope... I hope the making of this brings you some happiness, and I hope wherever your HOPE design ends up (for you, for a loved one, for the community) it brings a ray of positivity. 
Use #hopecushion on the socials so we can all see your beautiful work! 
Please respect my work, always credit me (redsparrowcrochet) when you post pics, do not pass this design off as your own or sell the pattern. Respect for designers always please!

mtr mosaic treble crochet: work tr as normal but work it in skipped st of same colour 3 rows below, working st in front of intervening 2 rows of chs in contrast colour. All mtr stitches are worked on RS of work

Pattern Notes
This pattern uses mosaic crochet techniques:
Change colour (cc) every 2 rows. To change colour, work last st of row in old colour to final 2 lps on hook, yoh with new colour and draw new colour through lps on hook to finish. Continue with new colour.
The first row of a colour creates the pattern, the second row reinforces it. Where a dc or a tr is made in the first row, a dc is made in this st in the second row (make sure to work into all tr sts from the first row as they can easily be missed). Where a ch-sp is made in the first row, the same ch-sp is made in the second row. 
Work all tr sts (referred to as ‘mtr’- see Special Stitches) into ‘skipped’ sts 3 rows below.
