Handmade Crochet earrings

Free online patterns make Christmas crocheting easy!

Don’t tell her but I finally made my granddaughter the fingerless gloves she asked me for a while ago.

I used a skein of the Stitch Studio by Nicole yarn that I was sent (free of charge) to try from AC Moore. (Thank you AC Moore!) My granddaughter loves the color purple so I used the Orchid yarn and I think it turned out spectacular! Take a look.

Before I go any further I want to say that this post does NOT contain any affiliate links. I just really like using the yarn I got in the kit.

I like the way it drapes, and that isn’t only because of the hook size I’m using. Part of the pattern calls for a hook size of 5.5mm and the other part calls for a 6.5mm crochet hook.

The yarn is a 4 worsted weight and they recommend using a 6mm hook so you can see that the hooks being used for the owl poncho create both a tighter and looser stitch than what is recommended. Both are still giving me a nice drape.

Sprightly yarn is 100% acrylic, machine washable, made in Turkey and it’s sold in skeins that are 201 yards/ 184m 100 g/3.5 oz.
