Sweet Honeycomb Super Wrap

Crochet Pattern by Stitch in Progress

Free crochet pattern: Sweet Honeycomb Super Wrap in Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran yarn by Stitch in Progress for Underground Crafter | smiling model wearing shawl against tree background

Hello Underground Crafters! I am so excited to share this super wrap with you!

It really is super…super stylish, super long, and super fun to crochet!

I love, love, love to make patterns that are a repeat of something geometric and this honeycomb trellis stitch is one of my favorites. It is very easy and looks simply stunning when worked with a a stiff cotton yarn or a bulky yarn. The key is to use something sturdy that will hold the stitches wide open.

I used the Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran generously supplied by LoveCrochet and when I saw all those fun summer colors in one pack of 10 balls, I was all in!

At Stitch In Progress, I focus on Learn More, Make More, so I usually provide a tutorial for all the stitches that I learn and use. If you would like to see how this stitch pattern is created, you can check out my honeycomb trellis stitch tutorial post for the honeycomb trellis stitch pattern.

Crochet Pattern: Kitty in a Romper amigurumi

Free crochet pattern: Kitty in a Romper in Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Chunky yarn stuffed with Fairfield Poly-Fil Royal Silk Fiber Fill by Underground CrafterKitty in a Romper is a cat amigurumi crochet pattern for a standing cat in a cute little one-piece outfit. At 17″ (43 cm) tall, this cat is ready for play time with 18″ dolls. She is also ready to be hugged and loved.

Free crochet pattern: Kitty in a Romper in Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Chunky yarn stuffed with Fairfield Poly-Fil Royal Silk Fiber Fill by Underground Crafter - cat amigurumi standing at edge of couchYou may have noticed I like cats. They are my favorite characters to crochet (and I have several free cat patterns in different styles). This is my first marmalade cat pattern, so let me share the inspiration.

Free crochet pattern: Kitty in a Romper in Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Chunky yarn stuffed with Fairfield Poly-Fil Royal Silk Fiber Fill by Underground Crafter - cat amigurumi with ears upBack in September, I was able to add this Duck Egg Blue Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Chunky to my stash at an event with LoveCrafts. They had previously sent me the Blood Orange, and I loved how the two colors worked together. I knew I would have enough Blood Orange to make a jumbo softie, but I wasn’t too sure about the Duck Egg Blue.

Free crochet pattern: Kitty in a Romper in Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Chunky yarn stuffed with Fairfield Poly-Fil Royal Silk Fiber Fill by Underground Crafter - cat amigurumi with ears downAfter a few false starts, the Kitty in a Romper was born. I usually add a mouth to my amigurumi characters, but I really felt that she was more expressive without it! Just move the ears up or down and you can tell a lot about her mood.

Free crochet pattern: Kitty in a Romper in Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Chunky yarn stuffed with Fairfield Poly-Fil Royal Silk Fiber Fill by Underground Crafter - cat amigurumi sitting against pillowUnlike the cats I know in real life, this amigurumi cat stands tall, making her much more like a doll than a toy cat.

Free crochet pattern: Kitty in a Romper in Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Chunky yarn stuffed with Fairfield Poly-Fil Royal Silk Fiber Fill by Underground Crafter - cat amigurumi on bedI used Fairfield Poly-Fil Royal Silk Fiber Fill, an extra soft fiber fill stuffing, to make this kitty extra huggable. And, with the bulky yarn, she really works up quickly. She would make a great gift for any child on your handmade holidays list. (If the child is under 3, substitute embroidered eyes and nose instead of using safety eyes and an animal nose, as I did.)

Crochet Pattern: Mitered Square Scarf

Free crochet pattern: Mitered Square Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Chunky Pots yarn by Underground Crafter

The Mitered Square Scarf uses a classic crochet design to create a textured, unisex scarf that looks great in any color combination. Make it your own by customizing the width or length following the pattern notes.

Free crochet pattern: Mitered Square Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Chunky Pots yarn by Underground CrafterI love the mitered square in crochet, but I don’t love predicting how many stitches I’ll need on each side to get the width I want. That’s why I like to use increasing, rather than decreasing, to create my mitered squares. (Or, at least to make the first one!)

Free crochet pattern: Mitered Square Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Chunky Pots yarn by Underground CrafterCrochet increases are also easier than crochet decreases, and I wanted to make this mitered square scarf beginner friendly. After all, it’s has a great, unisex look so it would be a wonderful gift for anyone on your handmade holiday gift list. It’s easy to adjust the width and the length to make the perfect size.

Free crochet pattern: Mitered Square Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Chunky Pots yarn by Underground CrafterI used Paintbox Yarns Chunky Pots, a new-to-me yarn, for my version. It’s a self-striping bulky yarn and it’s both soft and affordable. It’s only available online through LoveCrochet.com (and LoveKnitting.com). I loved the earthy tones of this colorway, which is called Making Hay.

2018 Holiday Stashdown CAL Schedule and Yarn List

The Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along has always been a mystery CAL where projects are kept secret until the date of release. This year, we decided to change things up by providing a yarn list ahead of time. Each pattern uses up to 3 skeins of Paintbox Yarns from LoveCrochet. Exact colors and yarns are listed next to each designer’s date, but you’ll still be surprised when the pattern is released. This will give you time to order yarn before the CAL starts, or, if you’re working from stash, to find a substitute. This list will be updated during the CAL to include links to each pattern as it is released.
