Oasis Cluster Top - Free Crochet Pattern

*This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase by clicking on them, I make a small commission at no extra cost to you. Thanks for your support!
This top was first published in the Happily Hooked Magazine, Issue 27 for June 2016, which features Summer Vacation makes. I wanted to create a lightweight, kinda open, oversized top that could be worn as a cover up, or over a white tank top paired with some white shorts -- oops, speaking from my own wardrobe, hehe! This top features a super easy construction and assembly, and allows the freedom of adjusting the straps/shoulder length, and overall length to give you a custom fit that you’ll love!

Materials:
    - 1175 - 1645 Yards of #1 Fine Weight Yarn - I used Premier’s Wool Free Sock Yarn in the Oasis Stripe colorway
    - H8/5mm Crochet Hook
    - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends & Assembly

Time Spent:
    I worked the medium size in several seatings, putting in about 14 hours.

Measurements:      
Teen/Women XS, S, M, L, XL
Finished Measurements:
Busts: 28”, 32”, 36”, 40”, 44”
Lengths: 21⅜”, 22⅛”, 22⅞”, 23⅝”, 24⅜”

Gauge:      
20 DC = 4”

Abbreviations:
    - DC - Double Crochet
    - dc4tog cl - double crochet four stitches together to equal a cluster
       To dc4tog cl: work the following all into one stitch: Yarn over, insert hook into the stitch, yarn over, pull through (3 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through two loops on hook, yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, yarn over, pull through (4 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through two loops on hook, yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, yarn over, pull through (5 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through two loops on hook, yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, yarn over, pull through (6 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through two loops on hook, yarn over, pull through all 5 loops on the hook.

Pattern Notes:
    Beginning chain counts towards final stitch count.

Each dc4tog cl counts as one stitch.

Top is designed to fit a little oversized given yarn type used.

Instructions for smallest size given, with larger options in brackets.

I chose to slip stitch the pieces together as I think this creates a strong bond, however, you may feel more comfortable sewing the pieces together. If you choose to sew the pieces, you may want to use stitch markers.

As far as the shoulder/neck opening part goes, you can create thinner straps and a larger, more flexible neck opening by slip stitching through less stitches. You may want to slip stitch through this part, and then try on before fastening off so you can adjust as desired. And for the length, you can work less repeats for a shorter top.

Pattern:
    
Main Body - Make 2:
    Chain 73, (82, 94, 100, 112). DC in the 4th chain, and each chain across. (71, 80, 92, 98, 110 DCs)

Round 2:  Chain 2, turn. DC in the 2nd and 3rd stitches, chain 2, skip 2 stitches, (dc4tog cl in the next stitch, chain 2, skip 2 stitches) 21x (24x, 28x, 30x, 34x), DC in the last 3 stitches. (21, 24, 28, 30, 34 clusters and 6 DCs)

Rounds 3:  Chain 2, turn. DC into the 2nd stitch, and each stitch across. (71, 80, 92, 98, 110 DCs)

Round 4 - 57 [59, 61, 63, 65]: Repeat Rows 2 and 3.

Fasten Off as usual after first piece, but do not fasten off after second piece.

Shoulders/Neck Opening: Chain 1, turn. Lay the piece together with right sides facing. Working through both layers, slip stitch in the 1st 18, (21, 26, 28, 34) stitches;
Working through just the top layer, slip stitch into the next 35, (38, 40, 42, 42) stitches;
Working through both layers, slip stitch in the last 18, (21, 26, 28, 34) stitches.
Fasten Off.

Sides: Still working on wrong side, leave 7”, (7½”, 8”, 8½”, 9”) unsewn for armholes. Reattach yarn through both layers afterwards, and slip stitch across to end of top. Repeat on other side.

Fasten Off, and weave in all ends.

Two-Tone Shrug - Double Stitch Twins/Red Heart - Crochet Pattern Review

10.06.16: This post was drafted back in July of 2014 - yikes! Good to be clearing out my draft and WIPs boxes. 

Back Then: Awhile ago, I purchased some Cotton-Ease yarn to crochet up the Light 'n' Lively Tank. I did attempt it, and didn't match my gauge up so I ended up having to frog it. I do plan on going back to it.

In the meantime, it has been sitting around my room. I decided it was time to pick it back up and work a project. I found the Two-Tone Shrug on the Red Heart site. The project is courtesy of the Double Stitch Twins. Check out their Ravelry page - they are so talented! They cover all aspects from jewelry to hats and scarves to child and woman's clothing. Beautiful work!

Materials I Used:
     - Almost two skeins of Cotton-Ease yarn in the color Seaspray
     - H8/5mm Crochet Hook (as recommended)
     - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends - I used a #18
     - Two-Tone Shrug, Free Crochet Pattern on Red Heart by the Double Stitch Twins

Material Notes: 
     Yarn Alternatives: Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft, Caron's Simply Soft, or any lighter Worsted Weight Yarn. 

Time Spent:
     This shrug works up fairly quickly - in just over 3 hours. The time seems to fly by faster!

Measurements:
     I worked the S/M Size. My finished shrug measured 26.5" wide by 7.75" tall (from the shoulder to end) - shorter and a touch smaller than pattern measurements are on site. I did not take a gauge before beginning this project though, so could have just been me. The width is good as is. It is simply meant to reach from one elbow to another.
     L/XL instructions also included.

Pattern Notes:
     While the pattern shows the shrug in two tones, I chose to do one. 
You could also split the two colors making half of the bottoms of the shrug in one color and the top halves in another or use four colors to make all quarters a different one! So many options. 

     The pattern is really easy to follow and repetitive so it is easy to remember the pattern without the need to keep looking back at it. Would be a great stitch pattern for several other projects. If you would like to see any, drop me a line below :)

     I really do love the look and construction of this shrug, though it is not my style. It is great to wear over a tank top or to cover your shoulders over a sleeveless shirt or dress (or even to use as lingerie - so my aunt mentioned, hehe). It would look great in any and every color, and by simply changing the yarn fiber, it can be great for any season too!

With so many size, yarn type and color options, I would love to see them! Please share your photos on my EyeLoveKnots Facebook page.

Single Solid Granny Square Ottoman Cover - Free Crochet Pattern

*This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase by clicking on them, I make a small commission at no extra cost to you. Thanks for your support!
Yay! This is the seventh post of the year for the 2017 GrannySpiration Challenge! I am so excited to see what everyone has been working on, especially you! At the end of this post, you will find the information for this month's giveaway, and link up.

This month, I wanted to create something for my home. I moved in with Todd back in February, and shame on me, I haven't created anything for our home! I have been talking about making some curtains, and we've been discussing colors and getting a new couch, but right now, I have decided to go with black to match the large area rug we have in the living room. Since creating this ottoman cover, I have many ideas for other ones, and the great thing about them is that they are removable and easy to change out depending on your mood and decor.
From Your Hosts: Granny Square Shrug (Tutorial) from Mariam's Creations, Simple Granny Dishcloth (Free Crochet Pattern) from Rhelena, Be Squared Top (Free Crochet Pattern & Tutorial) from Crochet is the Way, Sweet Coaster (Tutorial) from Kat Kat Katoen, Granny Square Heart Cushion (Tutorial) from Hakelfieber, Lose Granny Square Jacket (Tutorial) from Atelier Marie-Lucienne, and Vintage Granny Square Scarf (Free Crochet Pattern) from Me! EyeLoveKnots.
Please make sure to stop by our other co-host and see what they've been working on too. In the image above, you'll find their projects (and mine) from last month's challenge.

*Sigrid from Kat Kat Katoen will no longer be participating in our Granny-Spiration Challenge :( Her blog is AWESOME! Make sure to visit, read her latest blog post about returning to blogging and subscribe! It's soooo worth it!

Marjan from Atelier Marie-Lucienne
Sandra from Hakelfieber Austria (in German)
Jenny from Crochet is the Way
Rhelena from Crochet n Crafts
Mariam from Mariam's Creations: Recycle and Create

Materials:
     - 900 Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Red Heart Super Saver in Black
     - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
     Yarn Alternatives: Caron's One Pound, Bernat Super Value

Time Spent:
     My cover took about 8 hours to complete.

Measurements:
     Fits my ottoman that is 18.5" wide by 16" tall

Gauge:
     End of Round 4: Solid Granny = 5.5"

Abbreviations:
     DC - Double Crochet
     SC - Single Crochet
     Rev SC - Reverse Single Crochet

Pattern Notes:
     I have a beginner friendly photo tutorial on How to Work a Solid Granny Square.

Beginning chain counts towards final stitch count, except in single crochet rounds.

Chain 2 in the last corner of the first round of granny square is intentional to keep a more even square with future rounds.

Join to the first stitch, not the beginning chain.

I worked the body of the ottoman cover by alternating placement of the first stitch into the first and second stitches. This will help create a straight seam. On the rounds where you start in the second stitch, you will end with the last stitch in the first stitch on the right side of the beginning chain 2.

To custom make an ottoman cover, work your solid granny square about two inches smaller than the width of your ottoman, then begin working in the round to the desired height. I added a round of reverse single crochet because I like the finished look, but while it is on, you cannot see it so you could easily replace this with another round or two of regular single crochet. Why the finish with single crochet? To help keep the shape of the piece.

Essence Fringe Top - Crochet Pattern Review - MermaidCatDesigns

Last Summer, I pattern tested this for my friend Stacey of MermaidCatDesigns. I was really excited when I received an email from her with the photo of this one asking if I was interested in testing it out. It is such a fun piece with great coverage, is lightweight and would look great paired with some shorts, a skirt or jeans as well as over a bathing suit top or not. It worked up fairly quickly. 

*06.25.17: It's come to my attention that this crochet pattern has been retired from the MermaidCatDesigns shop :(  I did reach out to Stacey, and she said she may be releasing this as a free pattern so make sure to favorite her shop, and keep your eyes peeled! Aside from that, this is good inspiration for working up a similar top. There are so many other crochet summer tops. You could start with a basic bikini/top base, and then added a fringe to the bottom, and knot it just the way you like.

Materials:
     - Less than 1 skein of Baby Bee's Sweet Delight in Hot Orchid (which I found on Clearance at my local Hobby Lobby so not sure if that color is available anymore)
     - 3.5mm Crochet Hook (Larger than Recommended)
     - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
     - Essence Fringe Top, Paid Crochet Pattern by MermaidCatDesigns

Material Notes:
     I opted to use Sweet Delight Yarn on this top because I wanted something soft and lightweight with good stretch. Cotton would definitely make this top better for the summer and help keep you cooler, but I don't like how cotton yarn tends to not stretch back or keep it's shape too long. I think the top would be just fine worn out during the day (or at night).

Time Spent:
     I am not sure how long this project took me, as I misplaced my original notes, but fairly quickly.

Measurements:
     I worked the Medium size, but sizes Small and Large are also included in the pattern.

My Gauge:
     With 3.5mm: 24 SC by 30 Rows = 4" (Larger than Recommended)

Pattern Notes:
     I worked another pattern by MermaidCatDesigns that had the same gauge as called for in this pattern, and after meeting the gauge and working the top, it turned out to be too small for me, so when I saw that this pattern was with the same size hook and gauge, I opted to use a larger hook which produced a larger gauge. It worked out perfectly for me, and the top fits great! I have a feeling that had I worked it with the smaller hook, it would have been too small. A factor that contribute to this though is the yarn type - I used a 100% acrylic yarn, while she used a cotton yarn.

This is a beautiful and fun pattern. The knotting has always been intimidating to me but after I did a few I found that it wasn't scary at all and they all came out to be pretty consistent - just go slow, and be patient.

Finishings: I worked the pattern as written with the long, criss cross ties along the back to tie in the front, but I didn't like two things about this:
     1. The thin straps were cutting into my back, and not a lot of support. Also, not that pretty looking along my back;
     2. It was causing the sides where the ties were attached to not lay flat and sorta poof up.
I opted to take the ties down to a chain 100, slip stitch down the chain in the back bumps and use a single tie along the back. With both back ties, front support was no issue.

To Care For: If machine washing and drying - I would highly suggest using a lingerie bag or pillowcase, but handwashing is definitely recommended.

Eclair Cake - Recipe Review - The Country Cook

This is one of the most simple, easy crowd-pleasing desserts I have ever made. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and will disappear in less than half that time.
My first experience with this dessert was at a family reunion about 10 years ago. Since then, I have made it numerous times and always get the best compliments. Even the most picky eaters love this delicious dessert. It has such a lovely creamy texture with a sweet hint from the graham crackers. Followed by a punch of chocolate on top. What could be better?
I most recently made this last week for a family dinner. It was the perfect ending to a hearty meal. Even those who have had it before said it was even better than they remembered. I prepared it the day before as suggested and by dessert time it was so easy to pull out and serve. Many people went back for seconds. It’s also another great recipe to have your kids assist with.
I slightly altered the recipe, one ingredient unintentionally. I don’t usually use cinnamon graham crackers, but my kids were helping shop and grabbed that one instead of the honey flavored. It turned out to be a yummy mistake. It gave it a slightly sweeter taste, which is always a good thing in my eyes. No one seemed to notice it wasn’t supposed to be like that. I also added some vanilla extract. About a teaspoon. I love the extra enhancement vanilla extract gives to baked items. So I always add a little extra and every recipe or at a little if it doesn’t include it.
This recipe is as easy as 1….2….3!
The Country Cook may not have been the originator of this recipe, but it’s the one I like the most - No-Bake Eclair Cake from The Country Cook.
