#TogetherWeCrochet Projects from YOU!

At a time when many of us are finding ourselves with a bit more free time than we’re used to, we’re reminded that crocheting brings us joy and comfort. We’re going to keep crocheting, and we hope you’ll join us. Here are some highlights from our crochet community.

How to Make a Yarn Swatch Book

We absolutely LOVE this DIY Yarn Swatch book our friend Lisa at HelloHappy made to keep track of her Brava yarn. Get the tutorial (and printables!): DIY Yarn Swatch Book.

Joyce’s Meditative Mandala

“This is what I’m working on. Helen Shrimpton’s ‘Mandala Madness‘ using Brava sport weight. I’m having a grand time keeping my hands busy! Thirty more rows to go.”
-Joyce R.

Handmade Hermione

Deborah sent us a photo of her current project: “Amigurumi keeping me busy.”

Hooray for Hats

“We in the 55+ community where I live, have several ladies who are knitting and crocheting hats, scarves and gloves/mittens for homeless people in the northern states.  I am so proud to be a member of the group.  I feel I am making a difference, no matter how small.

I like unusual hat patterns and to that end, I have quite a collection!

This is the hat I am working on right now, called the Pinetree Hat.  It is made with fingering yarn. Crocheting is my passion!  I do knit (if I have to😊) and also tat, a lost art.  I am self-taught in everything and also left-handed!” -J Morreale

Amazing Rainbow Abacus Blanket

Mister Domestic is working on this lovely rainbow blanket, made with the Abacus Blanket pattern, and a Hue Shift Crochet Afghan Kit.

“Crafting keeps me sane and I wouldn’t want to imagine my life without it. Knowing how important it is for my self care, my family supports me taking time each day for myself to craft. I’ll either go into my craft space and crank up the Enya or grab a skein and hooks and watch some Netflix and, when I’m really in a tizzy, I find that repetitively working the one stitch or an activity in a project has this way of forcing me into presence and basically resets my energy to tackle the rest of my day.” – Mathew Boudreaux- Mister Domestic

Heirloom Crochet

“Just listened to the most recent podcast. I smiled a lot while listening to all the stories. I am so thankful for my mother and all the needle crafts she taught me, especially crochet!  When my mom passed away she left me this beautiful crocheted spread that her grandmother had given to her. It’s a treasure!”

Brava Bunnies

Yaya’s Hook and Yarn made these adorable crocheted bunnies for her Etsy shop… and they sold out! We love her Brava Worsted color palette!

Un-Planned Pooling in Dishie Multi!

dd_glenn on Instagram made this pretty plaid pattern with Dishie Multi.

“This ACCIDENTALLY happened! All this time I wanted to do Planned Pooling crochet to get that look of plaid- and I get it without even trying. I absolutely LOVE this Dishie Multi in Berry Basket that I ordered from @wecrochetofficial!!!”

To Try this Plaid Pattern Yourself:

Using Dishie Multi, dd_glenn says: “I used a 4.25 mm G hook–smaller than recommendation, and did the Moss Stitch with a chain of 28.”

#TogetherWeCrochet Blocks for Warm Up America!

The WeCrochet team has been using up our leftover yarn and making blocks for Warm Up America. If you’ve been following along with our blog and our emails, you’ve probably noticed that we are working to create afghan projects or 7×9″ squares to go to those in need in our communities. #TogetherWeCrochet to keep us creating and collaborating!

The Warm Up America offices are temporarily closed. For now, hold onto your blocks and we’ll be ready to send in a lovely box of blocks when they reopen.

Stacey, Knitting Outreach Coordinator

5 rectangles of crochet in the granny stitch in a range of blue and white colors

Stacey has been using the Granny stitch (3 double crochet, and a chain) to create her 7×9″ blocks for Warm Up America! We love her blue color palette!

Kerry, Crochet Outreach Coordinator

A collection of crochet rectangles spread out on the table in 14 different colors

Kerry has discovered if you get the gauge JUST right, you have just enough yarn in a Brava mini 25g skein to make a 7×9″ block. She has committed to working her way through an entire Brava Mini-Pack! That’s 24 blocks going to Warm Up America! Go, Kerry, Go!!!!

Kerry’s Block Pattern:
Yarn: Brava Worsted (will work with a 25g ball from mini-packs)
Hook: H (5.0 mm), or size needed to obtain gauge
Gauge: 14 sts and 12 rows = 4″ in HDC

Ch 26
Row 1: HDC in 2nd ch from hook, HDC in each ch across, turn. 24 HCD.
Row 2: Ch 2, HDC across, turn. 
Rep Row 2 until block measures 9 inches long, cut, and fasten off. 

Sarah, Digital Content Creator

3 yellow rectangles of crochet in Tunisian simple stitch and treble crochet stitch

Sarah took advantage of the opportunity to make small blocks and learn a new skill! Check out this awesome block from Sarah in Tunisian Simple Stitch!

Heather, Crochet Marketing Coordinator

A rectangle of crochet in gray and mint next to a cute tape measure, owl-themed scissors, and crochet hook

Heather created an awesome mix and match block out of bulky yarn so it went fast! This is a great way to use up any yarn leftovers you have around the house!

Sara, Crochet Brand Director

Six crochet rectangles in varying colors and patterns, one with a purple heart, in front of a llama-shaped planter filled with crochet hooks.

Sara’s been trying out different stitches, patterns, and techniques for a few of her blocks. So far the intarsia crochet heart (color chart is in WeCrochet Magazine, Issue 2) is the favorite!
