Pattern review and update 19-02-2020

I don’t have to many scarfs or shawls designs, but I decided to give to this Jeanie Triangle Scarf a refresh, because it has a beautiful stitch pattern and because is that kind of accessory  that you are making to be worn for good.

Imagine that I made this Jeanie Triangle scarf, almost 2 years ago, and all the photos in this post update are made recently. This scarf was worn and washed so many times in this 2 years and I am really happy that it’s still gorgeous and it’s looking like it was finished yesterday.

If you already purchased this pattern, please send me an e-mail at contact@by-katerina.com and I will send you the new version.

I have to mention that the main pattern of this Jeanie Triangle Scarf is the same. I only added a few more information about supplies, measurements, gauge which I didn’t mentioned in previous version.

I learned so many thinks in these 2 years, about how important is to know how to promote and put in value the things you’ve made. Back then I did’t paid to much attention on how I was taking photos with my makes and didn’t realized  that this is one of the most important thing in this job.

It doesn’t matter that you make amazing staff, if you don’t know how to show them to  people.

Because this is a great pattern and a great scarf that deserves to be made in many others versions of colors, I decided to bring it back to life with this pattern update.

Even I, started to make another one, using some amazing yarn that I had in my stash for so long.

This yarn is from Lana Grossa, Goia, and I love the colors.

Anyways, I hope you are happy with this pattern update and you will want to make this Jeanie Triangle Scarf. Can’t wait to see all your versions. Happy Hooking!!!

But let’s see what is all about:

Materials you will need

  • Yarn
    • Category 2, Fingering weigh Yarn
  • Crochet hook
    • 4 mm crochet hook (US G size)

Chain 3 at the beginning of the row, counts as first double crochet.

Ch 1, at the beginning of a single crochet row, doesn’t count as first single crochet.

The pattern is one size and you can make a bigger or smaller scarf just by working more or less rows.

Fall Colors Dress. Free Pattern and Tutorial

You can purchase the easy printable add-free pdf pattern from here

The idea of this Fall Colors Dress, came to me while I was working on the Bat Wings Sweater.

I loved the shape and how easy is to make it. So, I was thinking that, maybe, this season we will see a lot of sweaters and I wanted something else.

About the design

The design of the Fall Colors Dress is very simple.

First we will work the top part, which is the same design and the same pattern as for the Bat Wings Sweater.

Then, after finishing the top part, we will start the skirt, working in rounds, starting at the bottom of the top part.

So basically we will do a sweater and then add the skirt.

Pretty simple, isn’t’ it?

Fall Colors Dress

Now, about the materials I used and some suggestions.

I used Scheepjes Whirlette, which is a 4 ply, fingering yarn. But, since I wanted to obtain a beautiful degrade, I worked with 2 strands of yarn.

Working with 2 strands of yarn, I obtain approximately the same weight as a DK, Worsted Yarn. That means that you will have a lot of option to make this Fall Colors Dress.

I worked with a 5 mm (H US Size) crochet hook.

You will also need 2 stitch markers, Scissors and a tapestry needle.

About the amount of yarn you will need.

You will need in total :

Size S – 1620 m / 1770 yds

M – 1760 m / 1920 yds

L – 1900 m / 2079 yds

XL – 2000 m / 2180 yds

XXL – 2130 m / 2320 yds

I calculated the yarn taking in consideration 2 strand of yarn. So basically I bought  twice more yarn than the length listed above.

To be more specific, for size S, I used 2.5 spheres of Scheepjes Whirlette Chocolate, 2 in color Banan, 1.6 in color Mango and 1 in color Mint.

Fall Colors dress

How I used the colors  

I started with 2 strands in color Chocolate, then when I finished the number of rows with this color, I cut 1 strand of chocolate and joined one strand of Mango.

Then I added Banan, working with one strand of mango, one of banan, and the last color was with one strand of Banan, one strand of Mint. So I had in total 4 colors ( obtained with 2 strands of yarn)

I divided the total number of rows by 4 ( the number of shades) and the result was the number of rows worked with each shade.

But feel free to choose your colors as you wish.

So, the pattern is available for sizes from S to XXL and is wrote in US (continental terms).

As I said we will start with the top part, which is the same pattern as for the Bat Wings Sweater.

Abbreviations used in this pattern

  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Hdc – half double crochet
  • Dc – double crochet
  • FPDc – Front post double crochet
  • BPDc – Back Post double crochet
  • St (s) – stitch (es)
  • Inc – increase ( 2 hdc in the same st)
  • Dec – decrease ( sc2tog – 2 single crochet worked together)

Gauge

15 hdc = 10 cm (4″)

11 rows = 10 cm (4″)

The Final measurement of the top part are listed in the diagram bellow. The skirt will have the circumference of the bottom of the sweater and in length is up to you, depending on how long or short you want the Fall Colors Dress to be.

bat wings sweater diagram

 

Make the foundation chain (you can also start with a foundation double crochet if you want)

  • S – 76 sts
  • M – 90
  • L – 105
  • XL – 120
  • XXL – 135

the top part of the Fall Colors Dress is oversized, so it should fit bigger hips, but if you know that you have bigger hips, measure your hips circumference, divide the length in half, add a couple of inches ( 5 cm) and this will be the starting length.

Row 1

1 Hdc in each st to the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn.

For size S, repeat this row 4 more times (5 rows in total)

M – repeat row 1, 6 more times ( 7 rows)

L, XL, XXL – repeat row 1, 7 more times (8 rows)

Row 6 (8, 9,9,9)

1 inc in the first st (2 hdc in the first st), 1 hdc in each stitch to the last one, 1 inc in the last st. Ch 2 and turn.

Rows 7 – 44 (9 – 44, 10 – 44, 10 – 44, 10 – 44)

I worked with each color 14 rows.

Repeat row 6 (8, 9,9,9)

After 44 rows you will have:

S – 154 sts

M – 164

L – 177

XL – 192

XXL – 207

Starting with the next row we will continue working straight without increasing:

  • S – 11 rows
  • M – 13
  • L – 14
  • XL – 15
  • XXL – 16

Now it’s time to let a space for the neck. On this step you will need 2 stitch markers or 2 strand of a different color yarn.

For the neck we will mark in the middle:

  • S – 36 sts ( 59 sts left on each side)
  • M – 38 sts ( 63 sts left on each side)
  • L – 41 sts ( 68 sts left on each side)
  • XL – 44 sts (74 sts left on each side)
  • XXL – 47 sts ( 80 sts left on each side)

Row 56 (56, 58, 59, 60)

1 hdc in each sts to the first stitch marker ( make 1 hdc in the stitch marked too), ch 36 (38, 41, 44, 47), 1 hdc in the second marked stitch and 1 hdc in each stitch to the end of the row.

After this row we will start to work the back side of the top part of the Fall Colors Dress.

Basically we will repeat the pattern for the front side but in mirror.

So, we will continue to work the same number of straight rows as we did for the front side, before the neck opening.

S – 11 rows

M – 13 rows

L – 14 rows

XL – 15 rows

XXL – 16 rows.

Now to obtain the same shape as for the front side we will start, beginning with the next row, decreasing with 1 st at every beginning and end of the row.

We will do the decrease by making sc2tog in the first 2 sts and in the last 2.

We will work like this:

S – 39 rows

M – 37

L – 36

XL – 36

XXL – 36

Now we have the same width as we started and of course the same number of stitches.

We will continue with straight rows, without decreasing:

S – 5 row

M – 7 rows

L – 8 rows

XL – 8 rows

XXL – 8 rows.

And the top part of the Fall Colors Dress is done. Fold it in half and sew the edges.

Skirt

Start in one side of the bottom of the top part. We will work the skirt in half double crochet, but working in rounds this time.

Round 1

Ch 1, 1 hdc in the same st. 1 hdc in each stitch of the bottom of the top part. Sl st with the first hdc.

Repeat round 1 for as many rounds as you want, until you have the desired length.

I made 12 rounds with 2 strands in Chocolate color and then 10 rounds with each of the next color.

Fall Colors Dress

After finishing you will have to make one cord for the waist. I made 1 chain off 180 sts and then 1 sl st in each st to the end. Make it as long as you need.

Fall Colors Dress

Then with a yarn needle insert the cord trough the sts in the middle of the dress.  Aa…..nd done.

Lovely dress !

You have to give it a try because it’s looking so nice and can’t imagine how easy is to make.

Bat wings sweater might sound as a creapy name, but lately I made a passion in finding unusual names for my designs.

For this piece, the name Bat Wings Sweater is perfect. Even the color takes you there, so I liked it and this is how I make this sweater known ??

About the design

This sweater is so simple. Only one piece to make and done.

All you have to know is how to increase and decrease and how to make a half double crochet. And if you don’t know how, you still can try, because this pattern come with a video tutorial that might help you out.

So, we will start from the bottom of one side of the sweater. We will make an elastic band at the beginning and then we will work only in half double crochet, increasing, until we get almoast to the neck line.

Then we will stop increasing and working some rows without increasing. Let a hole for the neck and then continue working in the mirror the first side.

Fold the piece in half and sew the edges.

Now let see what we will need to make this Bat Wings Sweater.

First, Yarn.

I uses Katia Saigon, which is a 5 ply, sport weight yarn. The recommended hook size for this yarn is 2 mm – 2.5 mm ( B – C).

I can say that I found it easier to work with a bigger hook, so for the Bat Wings Sweater I used a 5 mm (H) hook size and it worked very well.

For each size you will approximate need:

S – 300 g/ 900 m / 980 yds

M – 330 g, 970 m / 1060 yds

L – 350 g, /1040 m / 1140 yds

XL – 370 g / 1100 m / 1200 yds

XXL – 400 g / 1200 m / 1310 yds

Like you noticed, this pattern is available for sizes from S to XXL and is wrote in US terms.

Now, let’s see the final measurements for the Bat Wings Sweater. They are listed in the diagram bellow. The diagram is facing just one side of the sweater.

Between brackets are the measurements for size M, L, X Large and 2X Large.

We will work like this:

S – 39 rows

M – 37

L – 36

XL – 36

XXL – 36

Now we have the same width as we started and of course the same number of stitches.

We will continue with straight rows, without decreasing:

S – 1 row

M – 3 rows

L – 4 rows

XL – 4 rows

XXL 4 rows.

And the back side is done. We only have to add the elastic band. To make this, just repeat the first 3 rows that we make on the elastic band at the beginning of the front side.

After finishing the elastic band all you have to do is to fold the piece in half and sew the edges.

And done. The Bat Wings Sweater is ready to be add in your wardrobe.
