Here is a pattern I’ve created for YouTube subscriber that requested it. It was such a fun pattern to create, and I learned so much while working on this pattern! Thank you for the suggestion! If you have suggestions for video tutorials or patterns, let me know! I’m happy to try 🙂

So what was the biggest lesson I learned from creating this pattern? I learned to crochet Fair Isle patterns!

Have you ever seen the beautiful knitting atop an Icelandic sweater before? Well, that’s Fair Isle knitting. It’s a knitting technique that uses a spreadsheet-like pattern to create pictures on one side of your work, leaving you with an amazing work of knitted art on one side and a bunch of stranded knitting (which looks like a mess) on the other. Generally, the not-so-pretty side is hidden inside the project, or covered up, so no worries.

This pattern is written for folks who have some experience with Tunisian Crochet and are comfortable working a Tunisian Simple Stitch. If you’re a beginner crocheter, you may have a difficult time following along, as I do not cover basic stitches in the pattern or in the tutorial. Don’t be discouraged, I will be posting more beginner-friendly patterns here and on YouTube so you can also create some amazing work. 😉

What you’ll need:

Yarn: Medium size yarn (4), in two colors.

Hook: 4 mm Tunisian Hook and 3.75mm regular hook

Additional materials: Scissors, needle (any needle you can fit your yarn through will work).

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
