Looking to winter and Christmas this year has been all about the men for me, which is what got me thinking about the stag placemat. Note: this post may contain affiliate links. Stags are universal – men, women and children like stags and your colour 

Acorn Square – Free 8″ Pattern

Acorn Square – Free 8″ Pattern

The Acorn Square was designed specifically for the Cozy Fall MAL hosted by Knitting with Chopsticks and Noors Knits.

When you think of Fall what do you think of? Falling leaves, the crunch under your feet as you walk, the brisk air, a hot drink? When Hortense and Noorain asked me if I would like to join their event and told me a little about it, the first thing I thought of was squirrels gathering their nuts! So within seconds I had the idea for the acorn square.

Usually I mull an idea over in my head for a day or two. But with this one within 24 hours the pattern was designed and written and I was half way through making it!

If you haven’t worked tapestry crochet before this one is a perfect project to get you started. Use those scraps from previous projects! I was so proud of myself for only using yarn from my scrap bucket.

 

 

Hints and tips for working up your Acorn Square using tapestry crochet.

Tapestry crochet is created using single crochet stitches. Here are a couple of hints and tips for working this pattern:

  • This pattern is reversible.
  • You can carry your yarn if you really really hate sewing in ends.
  • Personally I try not to carry yarn too much. Regardless of what you do you will always see a little of the carried colour through your work. With this particular pattern, if you carry the dark brown across the couple of caramel stitches in the top of the acorn it will be fine!
  • If you carry your yarn it makes it harder to block your project – pull it too tight and it pinches in your work, too loose and you will get loops of the carried yarn work its way out of your project.
  • When changing colour  do not work the final pull through on the stitch before. For a clean colour change finish the previous stitch with your new colour.
  • Work your starting chain fairly loose to help prevent your work from curling.
  • You can choose whether to start each row with a CH1 or just go straight into the sc stitches.
  • I recommend using a stitch marker to note the first and last stitches of each row.
  • Check your stitch counts! If you don’t have enough stitches to get to the end of the row, it is more than likely that you missed a stitch when you changed colour somewhere.

The free pattern is further down this post. However, if you prefer the pdf option which contains the chart, written and colour block instructions you can get a very inexpensive copy in the usual places.

I usually forget to add some tester photos for you! I love seeing how my designs come out in different colours and different yarns.

 

 

The Cozy Fall MAL

The Cozy Fall MAL runs throughout October 2021 and was designed both as a CAL and as a way of raising money for a fantastic cancer charity.

You can follow along each weekday and get the patterns as they are released, or purchase the bundle. 50% of all proceeds from the bundle go towards CURE which supports families in whatever way they can when a child is diagnosed with cancer.

The Acorn Square Pattern Information:

Materials:

  • #4 weight yarn 3 colours I used Caron Simply Soft in
    • White
    • Chocolate
    • Autumn Maize
  • 5mm hook
  • Stitch markers to mark first and last stitches (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle
  • Blocking mats and pins (optional)

This is a side to side graph and is worked left to right on the right side and right to left on the wrong side and from the bottom to the top.

To work out how much yarn you will need you will need to do a sample swatch and then measure how much yarn you used per stitch multiplying that by the number of stitches of that color and adding some for the tails to be worked in at the end.

The Pumpkin Placemat Pattern:

Pattern notes:

  • Written in US terms
  • Chain 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • There are no special stitches used in this pattern.
  • This is a side to side graph and is worked right to left on the right side (odd numbered rows) and left to right on the wrong side (even numbered rows) and from the bottom to the top. The arrows at the beginning of the row indicate which way you are working that row . It is a reversible pattern so remember to crochet over any yarn you carry!

However, to work out how much yarn you will need you will need to do a sample swatch and then measure how much yarn you used per stitch multiplying that by the number of stitches of that color and adding some for the tails to be worked in at the end.

A Handy Storage Basket – Free Pattern

A Handy Storage Basket – Free Pattern

I needed a handy storage basket so why not write it up as a free pattern? We had recently had a log burner put in and I needed something pretty to keep the logs in. I had also just gotten my first order of Hoooked 

The Bee Pillow – Free Crochet Pattern

  Can I say ‘Introducing the Bee Pillow’? Who doesn’t love bees? They have such an important role in our lives but sometimes I think it is way too easy to forget just how much they do for us! This pattern is actually reminding me 

Fireside Cottage Stocking

Fireside Cottage Stocking

Today we are introducing you to the Fireside Cottage Stocking and it is a free pattern below.

First, a little more info about the Stocking!

Did you know that this is the second stocking pattern that we have? Last year we released the Robin Stocking as part of our Robin Richard Christmas Collection. The collection also features a gingham look afghan and a gorgeous tree skirt! You really should check these patterns out.

I love our stocking patterns. They have a modern twist on a very classical look. The style of the stocking is quite traditional. But the stitches and stitch combo we use are most definitely not! I have made almost all of my stockings in Caron Simply Soft. I realise that for some this is not their favourite yarn, but I have not really experienced the untwisting of the fibres or any of the issues that some people have complained of. For me this yarn in autumn red and cream just works up fabulously and is perfect for our Fireside Cottage Stocking.

There is a reassuring weight to these stockings which help it maintain its shape and looks just fantastic!

The perfect gift

Do you find it easy thinking of that perfect Christmas gift for everyone you usually gift to? The Fireside Cottage Stocking is also the perfect gift for anyone who you consider difficult to buy for. Make them a stocking, add a gift card or some bathroom items (deodorants, aftershave etc) to create a great gift.

Special Stitches:

If you are new to the foundation stitches and want to give them a try then here is our right handed YouTube Tutorial below.

You can also find out left handed tutorial here.

N Stitch: This is a stitch that most people have not used before. This actually surprises me because it is a lovely stitch with a lot of texture and is not as difficult as it looks! Below is the right-handed tutorial but you can also find the left handed tutorial here.

The N stitch is worked over two stitches. To work the N stitch, sk next st, hdc in next st, going back to missed stitch, insert hook into front loop of missed stitch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull thru one loop only; YO, insert hook into stitch with the hdc and pull up a loop, YO and pull thru all loops on the hook.

DC2Tog: Wrap yarn around hook, insert hook into next st, wrap yarn around hook and pull through, wrap yarn around hook and pull through 2 loops on hook, wrap yarn around hook and insert into next stitch, wrap yarn around hook and pull through, wrap yarn around hook and pull through 2 loops, wrap yarn around hook and pull through remaining loops on hook.

The Pattern:

To make the boot:

Row 1— FHDC 44 or chain 46 and hdc in 3rd ch from hook and across

Row 2— Ch1, turn. NS across (see special stitches)

Row 3— Ch1, turn. Sc in 1st st and in each across

 

 

Row 4-40— Repeat rows 2 and 3 (NS even rows, sc odd rows)

Row 41— Ch1, turn. Hdc in 1st st and across

Step 1: Fold in half, right sides together, matching top row to bottom row and sew those rows together by either whip stitch or slip stitch join.

 

To make the heel:

Row 1— Grab the color you want for both your heel and toe.
Find the seam (this is the back of your work).
With RIGHT SIDE facing, from the seam, counting to the right side of it, count out 10 stitches. Attach yarn at the 10th spot and sc in the same stitch and in the next 19 sts

Row 2– Ch1, turn. Sc in first st and in the next 12 sts.

Row 3— Ch1, turn. Sc in the first st and in the next 6 sts.

Row 4— Ch1, turn. Sc in the first st and in the next 6 sts, then sc in the first unworked sc below.

Note:This is the next unworked sc from row 1 of the heel. At this point your work to start to curve, which is what we want!

 

 

Row 5— Ch1, turn. Sc in the first st and in the next 7 sts, sc in the next available sc below (9)

Row 6— Ch1, turn. Sc in the first st and in the next 8 sts, sc in the next available sc below (10)

Rows 7-15— Continue this pattern until you no longer have single crochets to work. FO

To make the foot:

With the main body color, attach yarn by folding the heel in half and attaching at the center-most point – this should be the 10th stitch along:

Rnd 11 Onwards: We are now single crocheting two together until you feel like stopping to sew the tip closed. Sew up the hole and weave in ends.

To make the cuff:

You can use either color or another accent color for the cuff:

Row 1— Ch 15. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and across

Row 2— Ch1, turn Scblo across

Row 3— Rep row 2. You can either fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing or you can use your hook and slip stitch the ends together to join. You need to make this to fit snugly around the top of the stocking.

 

Assembly of the cuff to your Fireside Cottage Stocking:

Round 1 With the cuff, place it over the stocking (right side facing you) lining up the top edges. Attach yarn at the seams and single crochet through both the cuff and the stocking edges to join them. It’s ok if you have to put two stitches in the stocking (the cuff is larger by a small amount to fit over the stocking) just make sure you cannot see that on the outside, and make sure you end up with a multiple of 3 stitches. Join.

Round 2: [Ch1, sk 2 sts, 5sc in the next st, sk 2 sts, sc in next]. Repeat between the brackets around and join your work. FO.

Making the hanging loop:

Ch 15, Hdc in 2nd chain from hook and each ch across. Fasten off leaving long tail.

Attach it using the tail, to the seam on the inside of the stocking, sewing the ends next to each other.

Fasten off. Weave in ends.
