I’m joining in with over a dozen of my fellow designers for the Sweet Potato 3 60 Minutes or Less Left Over Yarn Crochet Patterns Blog Hop! For two weeks, we are sharing new patterns that can be made with small amounts of yarn and finished within an hour. Whether you are looking to bust through your yarn scraps and solo skeins, or for quick crochet patterns, or for both, you’ve come to the right place! The PDF version of each of these patterns is available for free with a coupon code for 24 hours.

I am not the type of crocheter who typically makes patterns within an hour, so I was a bit stumped about what to make for this Blog Hop. But, when I saw King Cole’s new yarn, Celestial Super Chunky, I had an idea! Celestial Super Chunky is available from your local yarn shop or online at SewProCrafts on Etsy | Wool Warehouse UK. This yarn has a lovely sparkle strand and it’s super chunky, so I came up with the idea for jewelry. To add a little extra bling, I crocheted holding the Celestial Super Chunky with a strand of Cosmos glitter yarn.

My contribution to the 60 Minute or Less Left Over Yarn Crochet Patterns Blog Hop is the Disc Necklace. I was, in fact, able to finish it within an hour and it uses just a small amount of yarn. Depending on the yarns and colors you choose, you could make this quick crochet pattern to wear, as last-minute gifts, or (with more radical color/yarn texture choices) as “dress up” jewelry for kids.
