Under the Awning Blanket Crochet Pattern Update

Under the Awning Blanket Crochet Pattern Update

I suppose it happens. I must accept change. I'm not talking about changes like my kids growing up, or the crows feet at my eyes, or the tire treads on my car wearing thin. I'm talking about changes required to keep my crochet patterns updated. Fortunately, updating my Under the Awning Blanket pattern was a no-brainer. I knew the first time that I held Scheepjes Softfun in my hands it was the perfect substitute for the discontinued yarn used to make the original blanket. Let me show you the colors I chose for this one...

YARN 8 Book-a-Zine: How to Make Felted Mitts

Ever since discovering the magic of felting, I'm honestly gleeful when I get to create anything with the technique. Recently I was asked to design a pair of felted mitts for the newest issue of Scheepjes YARN Book-a-Zine Tea Room*. Off to the thrift store I scurried to find the perfect wool sweater/jumper that could be upcycled into some handwarmers. Needless to say, I hit the jack-pot with a beautiful blue and purple vintage fair-isle cardigan! But let me show you...

Rainbow if brightly colored crochet flowers blanket with yellow centers, Waikiki Wildflower Blanket crochet pattern made with Scheepjes Cahlista, by Susan Carlson of Felted Button colorful crochet patterns

Waikiki Wildflower Blanket Pattern Anew

When I contemplate the beginnings of Felted Button, one of my fondest memories is the creation of my Waikiki Wildflower Blanket inspired by my trips to the beaches of Hawaii. The yarn that I used to make it was a brightly-colored superwash wool that has since been discontinued, so I decided an update was in order. I recruited the help of a friend, Sabrina, who has a knack with both crochet and...

Riverstone Asanas -- Updated Blanket Pattern

One of the most gratifying things about designing crochet patterns is seeing what people are able to do with my patterns as a spark of inspiration to make a piece uniquely their own. Just recently, a fellow crocheter, April, shared with me a little tweaking she did with my Asanas Blanket pattern. Now I'll share that "tweaking" with you...

Scheepjes Yarn Reef and Skies

Some crochet can be ugly. I'll admit it. Sometimes it's just lumpy, old-fashioned and tacky. But then there's that crochet that makes your heart sing--that is true fiber art--beautiful, functional, stylish, trend-setting. YARN book-a-zine is all of that and more. The newest edition of the book-a-zine was just released and it is a sight to behold, I tell ya! Not a tacky or unstylish thing in...

Window to the Whirl Part 2

Last week I shared the free crochet pattern for Part 1 of my Window to the Whirl Blanket which included the panel with the nifty little "windows" created by the intermeshing crochet technique. Today I'm sharing Part 2 of the blanket. This section, made with its own coordinating Scheepjes Whirl, is really rhythmic and relaxing but perfectly highlights the gradient fade of the yarn. Let's get on...

Window to the Whirl Free Crochet Pattern Part 1

The flowers of spring are now officially proclaiming their presence here in Utah--the pinks and purples of the phlox, the vibrant red tulips, the bright white blooms of candytuft, the pale pink floral popcorn adorning the cherry trees, and brilliant yellow of the creeping buttercups. They all make me happy as they foretell of the warm and colorful days of summer. But no matter the time of year, my...

Window to the Whirl Blanket Reveal

In my part of the world, the crocuses and hyacinths have peeked through the ground, the forsythia is shouting in bright yellow blossoms, and in some southern facing flower beds the daffodils are in bloom! I'm still waiting on the tulips, but it will be soon, very soon. All these flowers spark my dream of opening my own flower shop one day. For now, I'm happy to sit and crochet in the crisp spring...
