Crochet Pattern: Promenade Shawl (Make It For Me 2019)

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterI’m excited to be participating in ELK Studio’s Make It For Me Event for the fourth year in a row! The Promenade Shawl crochet pattern is a one-skein triangular shawl that works up easily with simple stitches. Wear it as a scarf in cold weather and as a shawl in warm weather. No need to measure your gauge and it’s easy to customize the size. What more can you ask for?

Kathy from ELK Studio has her Make It For Me Event going on again this year. After all that holiday crafting, you need some “crochet for me” time, right?

It’s no secret that my favorite crochet projects to make for me are triangular shawls. If you’ve met me in real life, you may have even seen me wearing one! That’s why I’ve always designed shawls for the Make It For Me Event. In 2016, it was the Rainbow After the Storm Shawlette

Beach Stroll Memories Shawl, free crochet pattern in Cloudborn Superwash Merino Worsted Twist yarn by Underground Crafter | I love the soothing, repetitive motions of making granny squares. This rectangular shawl uses a variation on the traditional granny square pattern. It’s easy to adapt the pattern to your favorite size. The stitch pattern allows for a bit of air flow so you don’t get too hot when wearing it.And, in 2018, it was the Fire and Ice Shawl.

I wanted something REALLY relaxing for that post-holiday stress crash, so I decided on the granny stitch, one of my favorites.

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterI wanted something portable, so I made this a one-skein project in Red Heart It’s a Wrap yarn. It’s a yarn with 3 color changes to make color-blocking easy. I worked the main body of the shawl with the granny stitch and then for the border, I decided to use another favorite stitch pattern: the v-stitch.

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterThis is an easy-to-customize pattern since you can just repeat Row 3 until you reach the size that you want. Use any weight of yarn you like with a hook that is 1-3 sizes larger than what is recommended. Try out the stitches until you like the drape. Make your Promenade Shawl with stripes, solids, or color-blocking — make it yours!

The Brooklyn Promenade is a favorite place to take a little stroll during lunchtime when I’m at work, and, in my humble opinion, it has the best view of the Manhattan skyline. What do you think?

Promenade Shawl, free crochet pattern in Red Heart It's a Wrap yarn by Underground CrafterI love that the yarn is lightweight enough that I can wear my Promenade Shawl as a scarf inside of my coat if I want, or on the outside. You choose what works best for you. And, the cotton blend yarn makes it breathable enough to wear as a shawl in warmer weather, too.

Make it for Me! Crochet-a-Long with ELK Studio

Make it for Me! #crochet along with ELK Studio January 1-31 2016I’m excited to be one of the participating designers in ELK Studio’s Make it for Me! crochet-a-long. Kathy at ELK Studio has organized a wonderful CAL focused on crocheting for YOU instead of for gifts for others. There’ll be plenty of designs to choose from, and lots of giveaways to enter.

You can read the official announcement on ELK Studio, find updated links to the patterns as they are released, and join the ELK Studio Crocheter’s Facebook group.

I’ll be sharing a brand new design for this CAL on Wednesday, January 6, 2016, so check back for more details!

#Crochet #TipsTuesday: How to add a project to Ravelry for an online crochet- or knit-a-long

How to add a project to Ravelry for an online #crochet (or #knit) along on #TipsTuesday with @ucrafter

We’re only one week into July and it’s already shaping up as the summer of the online crochet-a-long (CAL). I just started the Picnic Basket Shawl CAL last week, and there are several more fun crochet-a-longs in progress, including the Sea-Foam Mandala Pillow CAL on Crochet Memories, the Christmas Present CAL on ELK Studio, the Wildflower Shoulder Bag CAL on Little Monkeys Crochet, and the Amigurumi Timothy Turtle CAL on Rebeckah’s Treasures.

This post contains affiliate links.

If you’re new to the world of online crochet-a-longs (or knit-a-longs), you may have found that many of these are taking place on Ravelry. Today, I’m sharing tips for adding a project to Ravelry so you can share it as part of a CAL or KAL.

By the way, even if the CAL or KAL is taking place elsewhere online (or offline!), a Ravelry project page is a really great way to share your project’s progress!

Adding a project in Ravelry

If you’re new to Ravelry, you may not have used the projects feature before. First, let’s walk through how to add a project to Ravelry.

Click to enlarge.

1) When you login in, hover over “My Notebook” in the upper left corner.

2) Choose “Projects” from the drop down menu.

3) Click “Add Project.”

4) On the project page, give your new project a name.

5) Click the drop down menu under “which craft?” to select your craft of choice.

6) Choose the option that best describes the pattern source under “Where can people find the pattern…?”

7) Type in the name of the pattern and the source, if you know it.

8) Click “Continue.”

9) Review the options and click “Choose This Pattern” when you find the right one.

You’ve now added your first project to Ravelry! You’ll be returned to the project page.

Customizing your project page

10) You can choose to type in who/what/why the project is “Made for.” Some people type in the name of the CAL, while others will add in the recipient, or the purpose of the project.

11) You can link the project to another Ravelry member by typing in their name next to “Link to Raveler” and then selecting the right choice from the drop down menu.

12) Type in tags. If the CAL has it’s own tag (i.e., picnic2015 for the Picnic Basket Shawl CAL), include it here. This makes it easy for other participants to search through projects. Ravelry members can see all of the picnic2015 tagged projects here. Some CALs involve multiple patterns, so this is a great way to see what other participants are making.

13) Click the drop down menu next to Hook (for crochet projects) or Needle (for knitting projects) to select the size you are using for the project. This information can be helpful later if you want to make another version of the same pattern, or if you separate your hook from the project temporarily.

14) You can then choose your yarn. Tip: If the CAL/KAL is sponsored by a yarn company, they will often share pictures of projects made in their yarns, so don’t forget this step!

15) If you’ve already added the yarn to your stash on Ravelry, activate the drop down menu by clicking the small basket next to “Use Stash Yarn.” Then, click “Use” to select your yarn of choice.

16) Or, enter the yarn manually after clicking the + sign next to “Add Yarn.” Begin typing the name of the yarn and then click the link to the left to link to Ravelry’s yarn database.

17) Click on the underlined yarn of choice in the drop down menu, or, if it isn’t in the Ravelry database, click “None of the Above.”

18) Type in notes, if you’d like. (These, like all of the fields in your project, can be updated later.)

19) Click “Save Changes.”

You’ve now customized your project. You’ll be returned the project page and can start sharing it!

Share your project page and photos

There are just a few more steps to take to share your project and the pictures of it with the other CAL or KAL participants and the world!

20) On the upper right of your project page, click “Share This.”

21) In the small pop up window, click the underlined “Share This Page.”

22) Choose “Public – Visible to All” from the drop down menu.

23) Ravelry will give you a short link and several sharing options. This project will also be visible (along with any of your other public projects) at http://ravelry.com/projects/YOUR-USER-NAME.

24) Click on the underlined “Add Photos” tab.

25) Choose from any of the tabs to either upload a photo from your computer or link to a photo in your collection on Flickr, Photobucket, or Instagram. Choose “Slurp from Web” to use a picture posted to your blog or elsewhere online.

26) You can also share the project with any Ravelry group you are a member of by clicking “Share with a Group.” Each group has to be selected from the drop down menu. Start by sharing the project with the group hosting the CAL!

Now that you’ve completed and shared your project page, you can really be part of the CAL (or KAL) experience online!
