Design Story

If you are as big of a Korean drama fan as I am, you may have recognized more crochet and knitted items making the screen. And boy do I get super excited when the lead men of these K-dramas pick up knitting needles and start to knit and purl.

The Holly Earmuffs were inspired by the granny square earmuffs that have been getting quite popular in South Korea. To provide some fun to my design and definitely extra heat, I used faux fur yarn. In the past, I used faux yarn to create a keyhole type scarf called the Polar Bow Tie Scarf. If you are someone who gets easily cold, this scarf will do the job and keep your neck nice and warm.

The Pattern

The one-hour Holly Earmuffs pattern is crocheted using Lion Brand's Go For Faux Thick and Quick as well as Vanna's Choice. Both the motif and inner earpiece (faux fur) are crocheted separately and then sewn together later. The headpiece and straps are seamlessly crocheted to complete the project.

-tapestry needle

With your 10.0mm hook and Go For Faux yarn, make a magic circle and chain 3. Make 11 triple crochets into the circle. Slip stitch into the 2nd ch of the beginning chain 3. Fasten off. Close the circle by pulling the beginning yarn and weave in the ends.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 to desired length to reach the opposite inner earpiece. (Take into consideration that when worn, the headpiece will stretch slightly when the earmuff is tied under the chin.) Slip stitch the strap to the opposite earmuff. Fasten off and weave in the ends. 



Bottom Straps


Take an earpiece and slip stitch 6 times with worsted weight yarn directly opposite from the headpiece.


Row 1: ch1, sc across

Row 2: ch2 (counts as a st), *skip a st and dc in the next st, dc into the skipped st; repeat from * one more time, dc in the last st (6)

Design Story


The Middleton Market Bag was designed last year along with two other crochet bags. The Middleton Bag Collection came about because I was at a loss for inspiration for summer wear. So, I visited the world of accessories. The Middleton Market Bag went through not 1, not 2, but 4 revisions. It was a learning experience and I enjoyed designing the perfect market mesh bag.


The Pattern


This crochet pattern is quick and beginner-friendly. It is constructed from the bottom-up starting with a magic circle and slowly making its way up with multiple chains.

The Aisling Scarf by The Cozy Chipmunk

Monday, April 13, 2020




Not too long ago I had the pleasure of testing for the amazing Laura from The Cozy Chipmunk. She is a sweet friend of mine and one of the very first designers I met in my maker journey. She designs more Amigurumi patterns but has recently ventured into making wearable items!

The pattern I tested was the Aisling Scarf. It was such a fun experience as it was my first time ever testing for a designer. Sure, I have made many things designed by others but never tested an unreleased pattern before. I hope to test for more designers including for Laura in the future as it was a pleasant and relaxing experience.



The Aisling Scarf is easily a weekend project. With its fun bead and cross stitches, you really can't get bored with this one. I used Lion Brand's Heartland for this project which made the gauge a little different from what was suggested. Being a scarf, I wasn't too concerned with that and was really pleased with the way it came out.

I was happy to do a little photoshoot for the Aisling Scarf. Enjoy the silly pictures of me and yes, I realize these pictures will last forever on the internet but we all gotta live a little, right? Haha..


Don't mind the tired look. The two weeks that this scarf was in testing, I was also scrubbing, cleaning and packing my house to prepare it for selling. What great timing we had (being sarcastic here)! For those who may end up reading this way in the future... we are currently enduring a pandemic and practicing social distancing which has put showing the house on the back burner. Meanwhile, almost all of my yarn is packed away in boxes and yarn that's been ordered is taking quite a bit of time to ship. Clearly, yarn should never be packed away. 🤣





I hope that you decide to put this one on your list of projects to do. Also, follow Laura on Instagram and get to know her. She is a wonderful person inside and out and you won't regret following and getting to know this amazing and gentle hearted spirit. 



Until next time, stay safe! Stay healthy!

Happy crocheting and knitting!



XO,

Laura
