  1. I have started a guest blogging series on my website where I share patterns from other designers. The first one in the series is a Tunisian Scarf pattern by Richard Gartland. Here is the free pattern: https://knitterknotter.com/zig-zag-tunisian-purl-scarf-free-pattern/
  2. I recently heard about ‘Christmas in July’ and just thinking about the holidays made me very happy! I designed this wine bottle cozy and made a few for gifting at the end of this year! This is an intermediate level Tunisian crochet pattern and comes with two options - one that ends at the neck of the bottle and another that goes all the way to the cap of the bottle and ends with a ruffle.. The only tricky part is to work in a round with such a small circumference. If you know how to make a handful of basic Tunisian stitches and how to work in a round, this should not be too difficult and you will have some very pretty handmade gifts ready in no time! Here's the free pattern: https://knitterknotter.com/a-taste-of-honey-wine-bottle-cozy-free-pattern/
  3. This scarf is made up of a simple lace pattern that makes a beautifully textured and breathable fabric. Since it is made up of bulky weight yarn, it works up quickly too. I made this scarf for my husband but I could wear it too! This is a really fun pattern and can be easily made while relaxing or watching Netflix https://knitterknotter.com/frosty-ridge-scarf-free-pattern/
  4. July 4th is almost here and if you have not made something yet, this bunting is a quick and easy pattern that you will be able to make in no time! This is also perfect to make with kids because who doesn’t love tassels!? https://knitterknotter.com/patriotic-july-4th-tunisian-bunting-free-pattern/

  6. A mask mate or an ear saver is an accessory that can be used with a face mask to prevent sore ears. Prolonged use of a face mask with elastic bands that go over the ears can make the ears very sore. There are a lot of health care workers who could benefit from using these mask mates because they have to wear such masks on a daily basis for long hours. These mask mates are made up of 100% cotton and are washable. They require a small amount of yarn and 2 buttons and are really quick to make! 1. They prevent ears from getting sore because of prolonged use of masks.2. They help people with small heads because the mask fits better with them.3. They are made of cotton so they can be washed in hot water and disinfected.4. They need a tiny amount of yarn so they can be made out of scraps.5. If you haven’t tried Tunisian crochet, this is a great pattern for beginners The free pattern is available on my blog - you can find links for downloading the free PDF here too: https://knitterknotter.com/tunisian-mask-mates-ear-savers-free-pattern/
  7. If you are looking for a new pattern to work on while you stay at home, here is something you might be interested in: https://knitterknotter.com/luxury-plaid-tunisian-poncho-free-pattern/ Plaid was a favorite this winter and I wanted to make something for myself. I decided to make this poncho because I was pregnant and this was something I could wear even after the baby was born! The poncho is made with the entrelac technique and is really easy to make. I have photo and video tutorials to follow along that cover all the basics of making this poncho along with some tips - including how you can carry yarn for the diagonals that have blocks of alternating colors so you won’t have a million ends to weave in! In the end, I added a faux fur trim to give it a luxurious feel and look. The pattern consists of a chart, and a photo tutorial. Since the pattern works up slightly differently for left and right handed people, you will receive two sets of PDF documents - one set with left handed instructions and the other with right handed instructions.
  8. Have you wanted to try Tunisian crochet but did not because they require a whole set of new hooks?The Join Me - Easy Tunisian Mittens can be made with a regular hook and are super easy to make. Each mitten is worked in panels that are joined using the ‘Join as you go’ technique. Free pattern: https://knitterknotter.com/join-me-easy-tunisian-mittens-free-pattern/
  9. This poncho is made up of three rectangles so you don’t have to deal with any increases / decreases. It only requires basic knowledge of Tunisian crochet since it is made up of just two stitches - Tunisian Simple Stitch and Tunisian Purl Stitch. It is made using bulky weight yarn so it works up really quickly too! If you are interested in making something simple yet fun with Tunisian crochet, this will be perfect! https://knitterknotter.com/sparsh-poncho-free-pattern/
  10. I am happy to introduce my latest free pattern - A Taste of Honey Shawl!! I made this triangle shawl because when I learnt the Tunisian Honeycomb Stitch, I couldn't stop thinking of it https://knitterknotter.com/a-taste-of-honey-shawl-free-pattern/ This is a beginner friendly pattern, totally netflixable because you don't have to remember counts and it is a one line repeat! I also have a video tutorial that you can use to follow along and make the shawl with me: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnNoasT8F8LN6qNvr6mad4A
  11. I recently made a graphgan using Tunisian crochet but the amount of vertical distortion present was not appealing for me. I dont have this issue when doing sc crochet graphgans. I tried to do numerous swatches with a bunch of different tensions (tight, loose, super tight, etc) but they all came out closer to rectangles when the stitch count was a 10x10 square. The photo I attached was a 34x36 graph and while I still think it looks good, I would really prefer to avoid this amount of distortion for other graphs. Does anyone have any tips or links to blogs/videos that could help explain what I'm doing wrong?

  13. Hello! I posted this under Tunisian Crochet, but as the last post in this section was from April and I'm new to crochet forums, I'm not sure if this was in the right place--I'm reposting this here because I desperately need help! I'm trying to crochet my first pair of gloves (I asked my boyfriend what he'd want me to make him for Christmas and he, of course, chose the hardest thing possible). I found this pattern that I love, and so far it's gone well; I've reached the part where I'm supposed to chain a new section to begin making the thumb. This is where I get tripped up, though! The pattern states, "Ch 9 loosely, draw up a loop in 2nd st from hook and in each st of ch; 8 loops, work pat. until there are 22 loops on hook; work off loops. Work on these 22 sts for 2½ ins." My first issue is that when I "draw up a loop" in every stitch of the chain I end up with 9 loops on my hook, not 8. Not a big deal, I figured that's such a small difference I can work with it, it'd be fine. But with the next part, I literally have no idea what it means. How do I get 22 loops out of 8 (or 9)? Am I supposed to draw these off of the hook first, and then increase in that new section until I have 22 loops? It states that I'm supposed to work on these 22 stitches, so obviously that number is important, but it doesn't give me any instruction as to how to do that. My first instinct was to work the loops off of the crochet hook before increasing, but if I do that it makes a foundation that is significantly smaller than what 22 stitches from the get-go would give me. Why wouldn't I just chain 22 or 23 to start? I've looked online to no avail, and there's no way to contact the creator of the pattern that I can find. You can view the full pattern here Men's Afghan Stitch Gloves Pattern. (I figured once I started that "Afghan Stitch" is either another name or a type of Tunisian crochet; correct me if I'm wrong! Also, it might just be me, but the way this pattern is written gives me a headache--it's just the best I could find without having to knit with a set of double pointed knitting needles, and that seemed harder than figuring this type of pattern out). I'm bolding my two questions just because I know I've written a lot, so hopefully it's easier to read. I'm also adding a series of photos to show how I'm interpreting the first portion of the instructions for the thumb. I feel like I don't even know enough to try and guess around until I figure something out! This is my first time working with this type of stitch, and I've loved working in it so far--if I can just figure out what they mean by this one part, I think I should be able to finish this pattern and make a beautiful pair of gloves. Thank you!

  15. Hi! I am working on my first tunisian crochet pattern and it is a bit fiddly to explain. I am hoping one of you seasoned tunisian crocheters can put a name to what I am doing. 3 main things: is there a specific name for the row of chain-like stitches running up the beginning of each simple stitch row? If I were to pull up a loop in the next vertical bar in the forward pass (so only one vertical bar) and then pull through both loops on my hook (like making a standard single crochet), what would I call that manoeuvre? is there a specific name for the vertical bar of the last stitch (so the left edge of my work)? Or do I just call it the ending vertical bar? Please contact me if this isn't clear enough and you need me to elaborate. Thank you in advance, Dedri
  16. Hi everyone. I know it's been way too long since I posted anything. I am a 'lurker' . Yesterday I started transferring my patterns from my old blog to my new one. This is one that I finished. It has NOT been tested. I would say the level is at intermediate as you need to know tss and tsk Tunisian crochet. I came up with this right after a class with a local fiber artist who specializing in tss. Pattern link If you do try it out let me know if you have any problems following the way I wrote it out.
