FLASH SALE | Oceanside Triangle Scarf

 

This scarf was designed with Sunkissed yarn, from Scheepjes, exclusively for the August issue of The Pattern Pack, and it’s now available for individual sale in my shop!

This is one of my first attempts at a triangle scarf, and the yarn really helped to mold the style of this design; the light and soft feel of cotton gave me a large, billowy project without a lot of weight.

Sunkissed is a 100% cotton, fingering weight yarn, and has a naturally comfortable and fluid drape to it. It’s soft, not stiff, and I found it to be very easy to work with.

Each 50 gram ball is roughly 185 yards, and priced just over $3, so it’s quite affordable! I suggest looking for this yarn at Deramores.com.

This design can easily be made in other yarn weights and types, too! Just make sure you swatch, and do measure as you go along.

Design Wars Challenge | Pam’s Market Tote

I’m participating in Design Wars again this week!

You can read more about it over on our blog.

Luster Sheen Yarn | Red Heart Yarns | Salena Baca Crochet

I signed up for this challenge because I knew this yarn had to be transformed into a tote!

Luster Sheen is a sport weight yarn that is woven to be very durable, doesn’t split, and does a brilliant job of holding up under a lot of weight.

There are a hand-full of colors available in this line, and the tones pair together quite nicely; from classic colors like Black, Cherry Red, Natural and Vanilla, to more colorful options like Hot Pink, Ocean, Lime, Violet and Mid Blue. I love Cherry Red as a solid color option, and quite liked the way Natural, Lime, Mid Blue and Violet looked together!

I designed Pam’s Market Tote for this challenge; it’s worked with an F hook, so it does take a bit of time to construct. I typically prefer quick results, so I had to remind myself to be patient with this design – I don’t work with sport weight very often, but the finished results are so very rewarding!

Using this weight yarn allowed me to input more design elements into my tote; giving me more opportunity for detail, and giving me space to use more of this awesome stitch pattern!

Pam’s Market Tote is written in two sizes; Medium: 12” tall x 20” around (10” flat), and Large: 12.5” tall x 25” around (12.5” flat). Each one has handles that sit comfortably on the shoulder, and should let the tote fit nicely under arm. I incorporated a drawstring with toggle bead, and two closure beads, for function. And, I just really love buttons and beads, so anytime I can add them to a project in a functional way that looks great, I’m excited!

One last feature is the Clasp Cord; a cord with a bead on one end, and a Lobster Claw clasp on the other. I’ve designed this with a slit gap in the center so that it can easily be attached or removed to the handles of your tote. Use this for decoration, to hold your decorative key chains or loyalty rewards cards, or for your keys – it’s pretty, and it works!

FLASH SALE | Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking!

Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking  | Salena Baca Crochet PatternI was in Design Wars this past week!

You can read more about it over on our blog.

2037-01-20 00.16.18

For this challenge, I decided to follow in my annual tradition and make a Christmas stocking! I love the rich tones this line displays, and the Cream contrast to the Greens and Reds made this particular stitch pattern really stand out boldly. This yarn has so much rich color, depth, and texture without losing the stitch definition. Plus, this yarn is ideal for pompom making! Seriously, I’ve made the best pompoms ever with yarns just like this. Overall, this  was the perfect yarn for my Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking design!

Holiday Sparkle Christmas Stocking | Salena Baca Crochet

This design is written in three sizes (Small, Medium, Large); each size is slightly larger than the last, giving these designs a traditional look that  pair together in a classic way. You can make one for everyone in your family, and size each according to age (Large for Mom and Dad, Small for the kids). Or, you can make each one the same size. Whatever you choose, the brickwork design will make each stocking blend together perfectly, giving you years of holiday joy!
