Urban Reflection Wrap

One Size Fits Most
72" long x 10" wide

F (3.75 mm) crochet hook
Fingering weight yarn
Color A (437 yrds)
Color B (437 yrds)
Yarn Needle

Ch - chain
Herrhdc - herringbone half double crochet (this is a specialty stitch. If you aren't familiar with it you can look through my photo tutorial HERE.)
Sc - single crochet
Sk - skip
St - stitch
Tc - trebble crochet

14 tc x 6 rows = 3" square

Difficulty Level

The "reflection" part of the Urban Reflection Wrap is created by a stripe pattern that is made up of Fibonacci numbers that fade into each other from opposite ends. You need to keep track of your row counts as you work the pattern so that you know when to change colors.

Herrhdc: Yarn over, insert hook in st indicated, pull up a loop and draw it through the first loop on hook, yarn over and pull through two remaining loops on hook.

The first color section is a lot of rows so you'll be able to spend that time becoming familiar with the pattern.

The pattern is a simple two row repeat, once you get started use the instructions for these two rows and the table that shows you how many rows to work in each color to complete the Urban Reflection Wrap.

Be careful and check your stitch counts at the end of each row. Working with fingering weight yarn and small stitches can make it easy to miss a ch sp or a stitch. 

Ch 68

Row 1: Tc in 6th ch from hook (skipped chs count as one tc and one skipped ch), tc in next ch and in each ch across to last ch, 2 tc in last ch, ch 3, turn. (65 tc)

Row 2: (Beg ch 3 counts as herrhdc and ch 1 sp) *Herrhdc in next st, ch 1, sk 1 st,* work * to * across, work last herrhdc in last tc leaving chs unworked, ch 4 turn. (33 herrhdc)

Row 3: (Beg ch 4 counts as tc) Sk next ch 1 sp, tc in next st and in each ch 1 sp and st to last st, 2 tc in last st, ch 3, turn. (65 tc)

Repeat rows 2 and 3 changing colors as stated by this chart:

21 rows: Color A
1 row: Color B
21 rows: A
2 rows: B
13 rows: A
3 rows: B
8 rows: A
5 rows: B

These are the color changes for the first half of the Urban Reflection Wrap. Next week in week 3 we will work the other half of the wrap.

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!! Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

Infinity Hooded Scarf

Ok friends, I know that I have been promising this pattern for a while on FB. Hope it was worth the wait! {Fingers crossed} This is an infinity scarf which means it is made in one continuous circle. {No weird awkward ends to tuck in somewhere!} In this version I have attached a hood for extra warmth in the wind, rain, and snow that come with fall and winter. The nice thing about this particular pattern is that you have the option of making it with and without the hood. They are worked separately and then attached. The scarf looks beautiful both ways. Enough talking - lets get hooking!! Infinity Hooded Scarf This pattern has been sold to All Free Crochet and can be found HERE .

Bobble Car Seat Blanket

This is a gift EVERY new mother needs! How many times have you been leaving the store, bags in one hand, baby carrier in the other and up blows the wind? Trying to shield the baby and keep the blanket on them without dropping all your bags can be one challenging balance act for even the most talented contortionist! Or there is the ever so simple problem of the active child that kicks off every blanket that you place over them. NO MORE! This blanket is specifically designed to be locked into the car seat without adding extra bulk under the straps that can jeopardize the safety of the baby.   It has two slits in the blanket that allow you to slip the bottom lock of the car seat through the blanket and then strap the child underneath it. The blanket is designed to fit right over the car seat without extra length hanging off the edges and the bobbled stitches give your little one something to touch and feel. So let's get started!! : ) This is the perfect baby shower gift and
