Honey Bee Scarf Crochet Pattern

Tuesday, May 12, 2020




The Honey Bee Scarf crochet pattern is a quick and beginner-friendly design that has the option of using one or two skeins of Lion Brand's Basic Stitch. With the help of open lacework, the scarf comes out with a nice drape.


It is a great winter accessory and this could easily be turned into a nice rectangle wrap by repeating the rows of this pattern. 


The yarn used for this scarf is by far my favorite yarn that they have come out with yet, at least the ones that I have tried.


The basic stitch yarn is a worsted weight that has 185 yards and anti-pilling, which is a plus in my book! They offer an array of color choices so I hope you can find a color that pleases you.


If you are wondering about the color choice I made for my Honey Bee Scarf, it is in Gold Heather. It has a mustard color mixed with some brown.

La Vie En Rose Shawl Knit Pattern

Friday, January 31, 2020




Are you looking for a one cake (skein) project? The La Vie En Rose Shawl is the perfect knit project for you. 


The knit pattern calls for one cake of Caron Latte Cake. The yarn itself is super soft and I really enjoyed working with it. Another yarn that is similar to this yarn is Red Heart's Hygge yarn. They are similar; however, the thickness of the yarn is a little different. 


Caron Latte Cake is a bit thinner than the Red Heart Hygge. If you are unable to find the Caron Latte Cake (which seems to be a seasonal yarn that only comes out in the winter time), you can substitute with Red Heart Hygge if you don't mind the slight gauge difference. You will end up with a slightly larger shawl. I actually have an extra skein of Red Heart Hygge from my Homeschool Cardigan design so I will likely make another lovely shawl with it. 



The only downside to using the Hygge yarn for this project is that they only come in one solid color whereas Caron Latte Cakes come with color changes. 




Pattern

For an inexpensive ad-free version of this pattern, please visit Etsy or Ravelry.
To pin this pattern for later, visit Pinterest.



Materials

-6.5 mm knitting needles
-1 skein of Caron Latte Cake
-tapestry needle

Gauge

13.5 sts and 21.5 rows equals 4 inches



Measurements

8.9 inches in with and 11 inches in length


Notes

To make this shawl larger, cast on in multiples of 2+6.

If you decide to make this shawl larger, you will require more than one cake of this yarn.














Remember to tag me on my socials with your beautiful knits. I look forward to seeing yours!


Happy knitting!

Earl Grey Scarf Knit Pattern

Wednesday, January 8, 2020




Introducing the first knit pattern of year 2020: The Earl Grey Scarf.

The knit Earl Grey Scarf pattern is a beautiful gender neutral scarf that uses the eyelet lattice insertion stitch. I wanted to design a scarf that would suit my grandfather so I planned on a criss-cross look and I am very pleased by it's turn out. 

Growing up in a Korean home, my brother and I were taught to bring a box of fruit or some food to offer to the people we were visiting. (When I lived in Korea to teach, parents always brought a little gift or something yummy to eat; this may have been when my donut obsession began as it was a common snack that was gifted.) This past Christmas I decided to bring him something handmade. As the years go by, we've noticed that his appetite for food has dwindled a lot. My father mentioned that food goes bad in the fridge all the time because my grandfather just cannot finish the food that is bought. So this year, I gifted him the Earl Grey Scarf.

I love how you can wear a traditional scarf in so many different ways. The pictures I took for this scarf, I wore it the two most common ways I like to wrap my scarf.  But trust me, there are still so many different ways to use your scarf.

I hope that this knitting pattern finds you well and that you'll be interested in making one for yourself.


Pattern

For an inexpensive ad-free version of this pattern, please visit Etsy or Ravelry.

To pin this pattern for later, visit Pinterest.






Materials
-5.0mm knitting needles 
-1 skein of Caron Simply Soft Tweed in Gray Heather
-tapestry needle                                                                                         

Gauge
Every 18 stitches and 24 rows equal 4 inches.

Measurements
7 inches x 56 inches


Notes
-The length of the scarf can be shortened or lengthened to your desired length simply by knitting more or less of rows 7-10.

-Take note that if your desired length is longer than the measurements described in this pattern, you will require another skein of yarn.








Make sure to share your finished Earl Greys on Instagram with the hashtag #modestybylaura. Can't wait to see yours!


Happy knitting!

Free Crochet Pattern-- Horizon Wrap

Thursday, March 28, 2019




The Horizon Wrap has soft notes of pink and purple. It can really bring such a feminine touch to your look. This rectangle wrap can also act as a scarf for the winter months! 

I personally don't wear shawls or wraps too much but I do love scarves. When I browse through Instagram, I really admire all that you can do with a shawl in the design aspect. There are some really beautiful shawl designs out there and those posts inspired me to give wrap designing a shot. 

The Horizon Wrap is my very first shawl design but I look forward to growing as a designer to make some intricate and beautiful ones in the near future.

Pattern

To purchase an inexpensive PDF version of this pattern, visit Etsy or Ravelry
To pin this for later, visit Pinterest.


Materials

4 skeins of Red Heart Unforgettable in Pearly
6.5mm hook
tapestry needle

Gauge

Half Double Crochet section 3.25 sts and 2.5 rows = 1”
Textured section (spatter pattern stitch) 2 rows = 1”

Measurements

69”long and 18” wide






Notes


-The length is created first with the foundationless half double crochet and the width is crocheted with each row.

-When you crochet the texturized section, try to keep your tension loose. It’s easy to tighten up with the chains that are crocheted in this section, which can result your piece to shrink in length as you crochet more and more rows.

-If you are unfamiliar with the foundationless half double crochet and would rather begin with a foundation chain, chain 226 and half double crochet in the 3rd chain from the hook and continue with half double crochet to the end.

-To alter the length of your wrap, chain multiples of 4 + 2 or FHDC multiples of 4 +1.
