My lengthy hiatus!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Valentine's Day, to you all. I hope you all had an awesome time with family and friends celebrating these holidays.

It is now March and I apologize for a long three (3) months since my last blogpost ARROW HEADS CROCHET COLLECTION in November.

Between November and now there has been quite a bit going on in my personal life and I have not been able to crochet or knit since September 2018 (if you want to know more, click HERE, then scroll down to More Recently). 

However, I am aimimg to catch up, by working on writing up some of my patterns which I designed and crocheted/knitted over a year ago and at the time I was unable to write up and share with you.


I have finally added the last two (2) crochet patterns to my Arrow Heads Crochet Collection EBook, 1. Double Arrow Scarf and 2. Multi-Arrow Hat. 

1. Double Arrow Scarf

Double Arrow Scarf is an easy, enjoyable crochet experience working back and forth, you should be able to make a quick scarf in no time and dare I say from one (1) ball of yarn (of course it depends what you use, but it can be done).


SIZES: One (1) size
MEASUREMENTS: Length 68in (173cm); Width 5.5in (14cm)
YARN USED: Lincraft Winter Warmth ● 100% Acrylic Mohair ● 50g ● 306yd (280m)
YARDAGE: Approx. 306yd (280m)
SUBSTITUTE YARN: Any Lace Weight mohair yarn.
TENSION: Approx. 18sts x 16 rows to 4in (10cm) in arrow stitch. Scarf is worked with larger hook and looser tension than recommended on label.
NOTIONS: 5.5mm hook, Yarn needle
PATTERN NOTES: Scarf is worked flat. Photographs accompany the written instructions at the end of the pattern.

2. Multi-Arrow Hat

To finish off the collection I have included the Multi-Arrow Hat which uses the arrow pattern all the way around the body of the hat. If you use a yarn which changes colour gradually for the Arrow round you will get this cute multi-coloured hat, I chose a darker shade of plain coloured yarn to accentuate the awesome colours in the variegated yarn, I think this has to be my favourite!


DIFFICULTY: Easy Intermediate
SIZES: One (1) size - Hints on size adjustment at end of pattern
MEASUREMENTS: Circumference 20in (51cm) Length 7.5in (19cm)
Hayfield Bonus Breeze DK ● 100% Acrylic ● 100g ● 306yds (280m) ● MC Embers (477)
Hayfield Bonus DK ● 100% Acrylic ● 100g ● 306yds (280m) ● CC Purple (840) ● 1 ball of each
SUBSTITUTE YARNS: Any similar DK yarn, one ball plain bold colour, one ball variegated colour. Always check with YARNSUB website to get the best match.
YARDAGE: Approx.: 41g = 125yd (114m);
TENSION: 22sts x 20 rows to 4in (10cm) in sc stitch
NOTIONS: 4mm hook, Yarn needle

PATTERN NOTES: Hat is worked top down in the round. Instructions are for a two (2) colour hat. Each round is completed before changing colour. Photographs accompany the written instructions at the end of this pattern.
