Pattern Release: Fence Hopper Ankle Socks

It’s been a long time coming, but they are finally here. Meet the Fence Hopper Ankle Socks:

The pattern of raised stitches is created by a simple 1/1 cable that doesn’t even require a cable needle. Once I had the repeats down, I was even able to work on these while walking.

This particular pair is made in Valley Yarns Huntington by WEBS Yarn, but I also made the original prototypes out of Hawthorn by Knit Picks. Really any fingering weight sock yarn will work.

You can find your copy in my Ko-Fi Shop, in my Ribblr shop (where it is 50% off until June 11), or on LoveCrafts.

Pattern Release – Walk in the Park Mitts

Back in January, I started creating a pattern while out on a walk, and joked that I would have to name it something with walk in the title. The result is the Walk in the Park Mitts, and the pattern is finally finished! This pattern is available on my Ko-fi Shop, Ribblr, and LoveCrafts.

It features crossed slip stitches that create the feeling of walking through grass or a drifting park path. The pattern is sized for sizes X-Small (6 inches around, 6 inches tall, modeled below by a 9 year old) through X-Large (8 inches around, 8 inches long), making it great for anyone 8 years old and up.

Because of the crossed stitches, I have labeled this pattern as intermediate, but could be good for an adventurous beginner ready to dip their toes into cable knitting without requiring a cable needle.

Materials specifics: 

Yarn – 1 ball of Premier Yarns Anti-Pilling Everyday DK (approximate yardage for each size: 100(125,150,175,200) yards)

Size 6 circular or double point needles, depending on personal preference

Stitch holder

Stitch markers (optional for marking beginning of round)

Scissors

Yarn Needle

Trusty Tunisian Tee Pattern Release

I recently had the pleasure of testing the Trusty Tunisian Tee pattern for Amy Kate of The Graceful Tangle, and it is finally available to purchase!

This pattern uses the Tunisian crochet simple stitch and a regular single crochet stitch. There is minimal shaping done only in single crochet, making this a perfect beginner Tunisian crochet project.

I made mine in Lion Brand Mandala Ombré yarn in the colorway Happy. It took 2 full balls and a small bit of a third to complete the sleeves and the full hem of the medium size. I originally left off the sleeves and the final row of the hem when I only had 2 balls of the yarn, so it is possible to just use 2 for the size medium if that’s all you have on hand, and you definitely only need 2 for the extra small and small sizes.

If you have a good grasp of the Tunisian simple stitch, this project works up fairly quickly. Working on this and several other projects at the same time, I was able to finish in 3 weeks spending around 30 minutes every few days.

This is my first full garment in Tunisian crochet. I’ve only done the simple stitch in a baby blanket prior to this. I did also make gloves using a different Tunisian stitch, but I am still fairly new to this and it was super easy.

All the seaming and details are done in single crochet, so this can be a good project for a true beginner to crochet all together if you want to learn both techniques in a single project.
I love the simple details on this design and the texture of the panels as well.
