Free pattern: Triangles Beanie

Triangles Beanie, free tapestry crochet pattern in 8 sizes newborn through adult by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter.
Welcome to my themed blog series, Crochet Specialty of the Month! Each month in 2015, I’ll feature a specialized crochet technique, stitch pattern, or project type through several posts.

Hats are some of my favorite things to crochet (and knit). They’re functional, quick to make, and great stash busters!

Triangles Beanie, free tapestry crochet pattern in 8 sizes newborn through adult by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter.

I knew I wanted to make a hat as part of my exploration of tapestry crochet this month, and I had just the right amount of leftover yarn!

I used some of Carol Ventura‘s tapestry crochet graph paper (available here), though, to be fair, this pattern is so simple I could have used regular graph paper.

This is a simple hat pattern that is perfect for your first explorations of tapestry crochet. I’ve even included both a chart and written instructions for the triangles pattern.

I’ve also included 8 sizes, from newborn through adult large, so I’m sure you’ll be able to find the right size for your next hat project! (I’m wearing the adult small in the pictures.)

Add the Triangles Beanie to your Ravelry queue or favorites! I’d love to see your pictures if you make your own version. You can share pictures on Ravelry or on my Facebook page. Enjoy!

Free pattern: Rippling Peacock Scarf

Rippling Peacock Scarf, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

I love ripple patterns. There’s something amazing about the way the peaks and valleys materialize right off the hook.

There’s also something about ripples and stripes. The color changes highlight the peaks and valleys, so naturally, stripes and ripples pair well. Until, of course, you get to the ends. No one likes weaving in ends, and color changes mean more ends to weave in. But with Cascade Casablanca, you can let the yarn do the striping for you.

Rippling Peacock Scarf, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

This stitch pattern isn’t just your standard ripple, though. There’s also texture because of the popcorn stitches, and a little eyelet action to give it a nice drape.

Rippling Peacock Scarf, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

The yarn has a great texture and feel, too, because it is a wool/mohair/silk blend. The colors remind me of spring, which is always welcome during the dark days of winter.

And, as you can see, it’s wide enough for full neck coverage, and long enough for an extra wrap around.

Free pattern: Warm and Textured 1-Skein Cowl

Warm and Textured 1-Skein Cowl, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

Back in 2011, I went to my favorite local yarn shop, Knitty City during the NYC Yarn Crawl and picked up four beautiful skeins of yarn.

Underground Crafter yarn haul from Knitty City

From left to right: Dream in Color Classy in Spring Tickle, Malabrigo Rios in 16 Glazed Carrot and 859 Primavera, and Dream in Color Classy in Happy Forest.

My original plans were for a sampler blanket, but over the years the other skeins were used for different projects until just the one remained.

Dream in Color Classy in Spring Tickle on Underground Crafter

I even tried planned to include it in my Temperature Scarf, but (based purely on weather patterns) I only ended up using it for one row! It’s such a lovely skein that I knew I had to make something I could use frequently with it, but since all the coordinating skeins I purchased with it were used up, I wanted to make a one-skein project.

Warm and Textured 1-Skein Cowl, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

This snug cowl is a great small project to test out your post stitch skills. It has two different types of clusters to make a richly textured surface.

Free pattern: Triptych Sampler Infinity Cowl

Triptych Sampler Infinity Cowl, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter
Welcome to my themed blog series, Crochet Specialty of the Month! Each month in 2015, I’ll feature a specialized crochet technique, stitch pattern, or project type through several posts.

Back in November, I talked about the yarn my family brought me back from their trip to New Zealand.

Countrywide Opals yarn on Underground Crafter blog.

Countrywide Opals, a DK acrylic yarn my mother and sister bought me back from their trip to New Zealand.

I loved the contrast in colors, and when I began this series, I knew this yarn would be the perfect fit for a design using the intermeshing crochet technique.

Triptych Sampler Infinity Cowl, free crochet pattern including intermeshing crochet, post stitches, and puff stitches by Underground Crafter

I also knew I wanted to create a circle scarf with that was completely reversible and combined the multi-color appearance of intermeshing crochet with solid blocks of color.

Triptych Sampler Infinity Cowl, free crochet pattern including intermeshing crochet, post stitches, and puff stitches by Underground Crafter

Rather than fumble through an intermeshing crochet pattern in one color, I decided to make a sampler, using two other reversible stitch patterns.

Triptych Sampler Infinity Cowl, free crochet pattern including intermeshing crochet, post stitches, and puff stitches by Underground Crafter

I combined a basketweave pattern made with front and back post stitches along with a shell stitch using puff stitches to add a little texture.

Free pattern: Faux Fabric Circle Scarf

I’m releasing a new free crochet pattern every week through December. Each one can be made with 3 skeins of yarn or less, and would make a great gift (for someone else, or as a reward to yourself for all of your holiday crafting!).

One of my best friends loves stretchy, jersey-style infinity cowls. This year, I decided to make her a crochet version as a holiday gift.

A detail of the stitch pattern.

Back in November, I took a trip to Saratoga Springs for work, and I had a chance to visit Common Thread and pick up a skein of Holiday Yarns FlockSock Sock Yarn in Wolverine. This color is a blueish gray that is perfect for my friend’s mostly neutral color palette.

Using a much larger than recommended sized hook and crocheting into the back loop only creates a gently textured and super stretchy fabric.

The finished circle scarf is long enough to wrap around twice. It’s very lightweight and breathable, too.
