  1. Help! I can't figure out what this yarn is! Does anyone recognize this? The closest thing I can find is Red Heart Boutique Fur. But that only comes in 11 yard skeins. Plus it doesn't look as full. This is three ply and Jumbo, I have attached photos. Thanks! This is all one skein!
  2. I would like 3 testers. This pattern is designed to go over a baseball or duckbill cap, or worn as a headband (see photos). Gauge: Size K/6.5mm. 13sc × 13 rows = 4" × 4". Yarn suggestion is Bernat Blanket Yarn, but a similar super bulky yarn that matches the gauge should work well. This muff is adjustable, so the pattern only comes in one size, though if you are an experienced crocheter, you could easily adjust the size. This pattern takes about 45 minutes to complete. Deadline is January 15, 2020 but is flexible Supplies Needed: Bernat Blanket Yarn or similar yarn, Size K/6.5mm. Crochet hook, 1" button, hair band, yarn needle, cotton thread. Level of expertise: Advanced Beginner, need to know basic crochet stitches, as well as dc2tog. All stitches used are explained in pattern. This is PDF pattern type Full Written w/ Photos What I would like done: * Photos of FO from different angles, modeled would be great, but not necessary. * What difficulty you would rate this pattern * Any notes, corrections, and comments. * Time taken to complete pattern * Description of yarn and hook used to gain gauge * If you can think of a better name for this pattern, I would love to hear it. * Your estimate of used weight and yardage If interested, please email me at craftingatthepoole@gmail.com with Muff Pattern Testing in the subject line, or reply to this post. A quick history and description of your skills would be great, but not necessary. Compensation will be a digital copy of my Squishimo Stress Ball Buddy Crochet Pattern. Thanks! And Happy Crocheting!
  3. This is an easy crochet pattern, perfect for advanced beginners, though I do include a no-frills copy for experts. Pretty simple stitches are used, lots of photos, and the result is an adorable little friend I call a Squishimo. These things make perfect stress balls, dog toys, and stuffies! Though I would omit the eyes if it is to be a dog/cat/pet toy. This will be one of your favorite gift in-a-pinch patterns!This pattern is worked in Bernat Blanket Yarn, and only takes about 14 yards.Guage: Size K hook, and 13 stitches by 13 rows makes a 4" square.Stitches used: Slip Stitch, Single Crochet, Single Crochet increase, Magic ring technique Find my pattern here! https://www.etsy.com/listing/705117607/easy-crochet-pattern-squishimo-stress?ref=shop_home_feat_1&pro=1
  4. Whoops! Forgot to close it! Thanks for reminding me! And no, this post wasn't just for that pattern. I am in the middle of writing the next one. But I think I'll just open a new one...
  5. No, they are more like really short and fat worms. Here's the link if you'd like. https://www.etsy.com/listing/705117607/squishimo-crochet-pattern-stress-ball?ref=shop_home_active_6
  6. Sure! I'll need your email to send you the pattern, if I post it here anyone can grab it! Not a huge issue but I'd rather not have copies floating around the internet. That yarn is a size smaller, so the Squishimo will be a bit smaller.
  7. Hi Lilly! Here's a direct link, if you really want to see it. I don't have everything listed yet, and some things are expiring tonight I won't be renewing. 20 cents per listing for four months isn't worth it, I'll wait for a Christmas bazaar. https://www.etsy.com/shop/craftingatthepoole/ Sadly, unless you use a parent's account as your own, you can't open an etsy shop in your own name until you are 18. Ask your parents first, 'cause you need to hook up a bank account. Just some small things to start with, here's a pic of the one I have the pattern for finished. They're little stress ball amigurumi, which will hopefully interest you, since I think you said that's all you like! I too can't just sit down and crochet a baby blanket. Not unless I have a really good reason and am watching a movie. The other stuff I have so far to convert into patterns are a new design of fingerless gloves in a stitch pattern I came up with, a muff that goes over a baseball cap made out of bernat blanket yarn, and some other random stuff.
  8. I am 17 and have been crocheting since for a little over three years now, I have my own Etsy shop that I am currently writing patterns for, I need pattern testers! The first one is done and ready to be tested. Check the testers section for more info. craftingatthepoole.etsy.com or craftingatthepoole at gmail dot com. Happy Crafting!
  9. I am an experienced crocheter, and am designing some cute and simple patterns to start with. I do need some pattern testers, and you would keep the pattern of course, all I ask is a good photo and any comments and/or corrections. If you would like to test my patterns, send me an Etsy Convo here: www.craftingatthepoole.etsy.com Or email me here: craftingatthepoole at gmail dot com. Or reply to this post! I hope to hear from some enthusiasts soon! Edit: Most of what I make is in Bernat blanket yarn, and the pattern I have available for testing at this moment uses it.
