Rippled Timberline Crochet Pattern

Maker
12/15/2019

Hello Everyone! We are so pleased to be posting on The Hook Nook Life!  We are so excited about all the new things happening here and feel so privileged to be a part of it!  Warming the Heart is a team effort by two friends who are fueled by the passion of crochet and comfort. We have both been makers in various areas pretty much all of our lives. Our business began to take off in 2014, when we both became homemakers. Since then, we have published around 50 new patterns and continue to have more ideas than we have time for.  I guess that’s part of the maker life, but we love it.

Rebekah has been crocheting since she was a young girl, but really found a new passion for it 10 years ago.  She taught me to crochet shortly after that and we have been a team ever since.  Last year, we grew by leaps and bounds when we decided to launch our brand on social media, specifically on Instagram. We have received a warm welcome from the crochet community, have made many friends, and learned new things. It has pushed us to explore further branding this year as we have added our labels and tags to our original designs. This official branding has made us feel as though we have finally arrived at the professional level for which we have been striving and once we changed our branding, we saw an increase in hits on Etsy also!

Though a great team, we have very different personalities, and thus our inspiration comes from very different places.  Rebekah is inspired by the pure joy of crocheting. Her love for texture pushes her to grow in her craft. Her favorite part as a designer is seeing her creations come to life in the hands of another. I find nature to be my first inspiration. I also follow a lot of fashion and enjoy creating pieces with an "out-of-the-box flair". My children are a constant source of inspiration as well as encouragement.

In 2017, Rebekah began publishing a series of brim up designs, and I began working on fair isle designs. We began discussing combination patterns, which led us to creating this new pattern. We have spent hours discussing possibilities and brainstorming the best ways to combine our styles, both in design and the actual writing.  We are so excited to publish our first of these collab patterns here!  We love the texture generated by these stitches and the POP of the fair isle portion.

Okay, enough rambling, let’s get to creating!

Center Single Crochet (csc): insert hook into the center of the “v”created in the previous round. Pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook. (One Csc completed)

Special Notes

a) Unless otherwise indicated, always join in the top of the first stitch of the round.  In each round starting at round 3, the hdc will be made in the top of the sl st of the previous row, and the sl st will be made in the top of the hdc of the previous row. If this is not happening, something in your stitches is off.

b) Color changing: For a smooth color change, pull up a loop with CA, drop CA, YO with CB and finish the stitch.

c) Center Single Crochet/ Waistcoat Stitch: If you are not familiar with the center single crochet or waistcoat stitch, we have a tutorial here (https://warmingtheheart.wordpress.com/2019/11/29/waistcoat-stitch-tutorial). Be sure to crochet loosely. The stitch used in this pattern will be very difficult if you crochet too tightly.

d) Stitch explanation:

Center Single Crochet (csc): insert hook into the center of the “v” created in the previous round. Pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook. (One Csc completed)

Half double crochet decrease: Yo, insert hook in stitch, yo, pull up loop, skip middle hdc from previous row, insert hook in next stitch, yo, pull up loop, yo, pull through all 4 loops on hook
