Stevie Crochet Pattern Set

Maker

Hey everyone! I am back again, and am so excited to be back on The Hook Nook blog! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Shannon, also known as @shannoncreates_, THN Dream Team Member, and Crochet Queen! For over a year I have been designing crochet patterns, and trying to create something unique to me and my style. When I make a crochet design, I usually think of something I wish I had or would want to add to my wardrobe.

After getting my hands on The Hook Nook’s “Yummy” Yarn, and seeing the beauty of the color and texture throughout the fiber, I knew I wanted to showcase that in my design. Texture is my favorite element when designing and the texture is so luscious, soft, and not scratchy. I was drawn toward the Tweeds in the collection and decided I wanted to create a perfect cozy winter set that I could squish against my cold cheeks!

I wanted to create something simple, and after doing a swatch of single crochet I felt it showcased the color perfectly when laid flat. I made the mittens and scarf within two days, and struggled to find a name for this set. After shooting the scarf and mittens with my photographer, Antonio, I still didn’t have a name. Nothing was sitting right, and just didn’t feel good enough for the beautiful set I had made. Once the final photos were sent, I had that enlightened moment; where all the dots connected for me… and she had a name.

Meet the Stevie Set! The Stevie Set is a simple, but beautiful Mitten & Scarf Set perfect for these cold weather months upon us. Inspired by the feel good nature of one of my favorites, Stevie Nicks. She is unique to you, and can be made with one, two, or four colors! The scarf is lightweight and long, with poms to weight it down so you can style it the way you’d like! The mittens are big, cozy, and this yarn makes them feel so soft on your hands. During the winter we can feel bundled, this set will make you feel free, whimsical, and beautiful!

TIPS FOR CLOSING TOP AND THUMB

Take your yarn needle and weave your tail in between the SC of the row you just did. Going in front of, then behind each stitch, repeating untilend of row.. Take your tail and pull it taut once you return to the beginning, so that the top of your mitten cinches shut.

(OPTIONAL): After pulling it tight, the mitten might be almost closed, but not fully. Therefore you can take your tail and stitch it closed. Start by going directly across and then attach the two sides. (Imagine making a + sign). Tie and finish off!
