My New Favorite Knit Shawl

How to Make this Amazing Knit Shawl


free knitting pattern



I absolutely LOVE making shawls/ neck wraps. I have tried various different patterns of shawls in the past. Some crocheted and some knit, but I have to say this pattern is by far my favorite one to date. 

The linear design of this pattern is what attracted me to it. It just looks so simple and stylish. Not to mention the fringe. I mean seriously, who doesn't love fringe. It's such a cute way to give it that little extra something.

Love the linear design and simplicity of this shawl




Other shawl patterns that I have tried in the past have either turned out way too big or just a little bit too small to wrap nicely with the perfect draped look to it. This shawl drapes perfectly on me when I wear it and doesn't feel too big or bulky.

Love how it drapes on me when I wear it. 


I found this pattern on Pinterest one day when I was in search of the perfect neck wrap. I was looking for something quick, easy and stylish and this pattern at Fine Craft Guild was exactly what I was looking for.

Sweet November Triangle Lace Shawl design by Caryl Pierre.

I followed the pattern pretty exact other than I ended up with just a little over 180 stitches and I added the fringe to every second stitch.

For the yarn I used Lion Brand Yarns, "Scarfie" color Cream/Taupe one full ball. This yarn is a blend of 78% Acrylic and 22% Wool and I am not kidding you when I say it is soft and cozy. Sometimes I get itchy and irritated when wearing a neck wrap from the material. But this yarn does not bother me at all. Another cool feature about this yarn is the multi color pooling. It gives your shawl and nice color pooling effect without actually having to change colors while your knitting.

I used the recommended 6.5mm needles 


I really enjoyed making this shawl and will definitely be making more. The pattern was super easy and I could put my work down and keep coming back to it in between projects. I'm thinking about selling them as I make them and want to try it with a few different types of yarn. I found this super cool yarn at Michaels, which is going to be on my hook next. I will keep you posted with the results.

Going to try making the same pattern with this yarn next. #wip




Happy knitting everyone.

Too Cute Washcloth and Scrubby All-In-One

Crochet Scrubby - Free Pattern

Crocheted washcloths are a timeless piece. 
I remember my grandmother making washcloths by the dozen. As soon as she would get one made, someone would come along and scoop it up. 
I myself, have made many different washcloths and scrubbies and have never been left with one to spare. 
I was wandering through the yarn isles at Michaels the other day (always a dangerous idea), when I spotted scrubby yarn. 



I stopped dead in my tracks and did a double take. WHAT?! Scrubby yarn! YES PLEASE!

I had no idea what I was going to do with the scrubby yarn, but I NEEDED it! 
Later that evening, I was trying to decide what kind of scrubby I wanted to make with my new scrubby yarn.
 I like using scrubbies for tough to wash dishes and washcloths for the rest. Too bad I couldn't get an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo...…..Wait  a minute, I'm the maker, I can make an all-in-one washcloth and scrubby combo. 


For my all-in-one washcloth and scrubby design I …

Crochet Chair Socks Free Pattern

How to Crochet Chair Socks, Free Pattern I am excited and a little nervous to be writing this blog post. I have wanted to blog and share my patterns and newly learned knowledge for crocheting for the longest time now,but the idea was kind of overwhelming for me. Where do I start? What do I write about? Will people like it? Will it be useful if there is already information exactly like it on the world wide web?

Ugh! So much overthinking!

No more overthinking for this gal.....okay I will probably still think about it way to much and for the first few posts I will probably write something and delete it 100 times, but at least I am doing it.

I will be posting about current projects, interesting information that I have gathered through various sources and products that I have tried and liked or not liked.

One of the many projects that I currently have on the go is......you guessed it. Chair Socks. A friend messaged me a picture of some chair socks that her cousin saw and liked and asked i…

Custom Fabric Labels for Crochet and Knit Items of Any Kind

Where'd you get those labels from?  For me, the final touches are just as important as creating the piece or project. For a while after I started selling my crochet and knit pieces, I wanted to find the perfect label. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted other then something that would make the piece look finished and professional. Something that told people that I, The Apple Tree Crochet, made that item. Something that tells people that I take pride in what I create because I put my name on it.

So the search to find the perfect label began. Wooden or leather labels came to mind first because that is what I was seeing everywhere on social media and it also seemed to be my only choice for knit or crochet pieces. I spent countless nights mulling over my options but none of them seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.  Eventually, I settled on ordering custom wooden labels.


These labels were very nice, but not really what I was looking for. I wasn't able to fit my full …
