Etsy Customer Yvonne Explains Mobius Crocheting Experience

I’ve always had the best experience talking with Yvonne. She is one of my best and enthusiastic Etsy customers. She always comes back and explain to me how well she created her designs using my patterns. It’s so awesome when someone tries your patterns. I like the way she explains her experience with the patterns. It’s gratifying to know that someone finally gets what you’re thinking. Yvonne is one of my favorites. She is one of those customers that always stands out. I featured her many times in my previous blog posts and it’s always refreshing and exciting to talk to her.

 

She always comes forward to tell me what she did. Here is an Etsy conversation that says that. I asked for her permission if it was okay if I post the conversation. She said it was okay. Here I am as I will quote how well she explained her experience on the Mobius hats and patterns scarves. She explains in her own words.

Hello Lenore,
I am sorry to say, I just this minute got to see this message (a month later)! 
I have been very busy and not keeping up online, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or Etsy. Sorry! 
I have missed you and your posts the most though.

I love the blog post! Thank you! I can’t believe my Gele (your Gele!) is featured! Thank you!

I have many more finished hats made from your patterns (17 patterns in all! So far!) 
However, I haven’t been able yet to get them photographed like I would have liked too. 
Now, I am really motivated to get them to you! 

Usually by the time I have completed your pattern, I have somehow changed it a bit, and all of a sudden, I discover so many different ways that same pattern can be created and/or styled! Unique! One-of-a-Kind! Formal! Elegant! Casual! Playful! 

Make it your own! Anyone could do any of your patterns over and over again, and no two would ever really be the same, or “style” the same. 

Each time I complete one of your patterns, I am challenged! I am excited! as it grows, I can hardly wait to complete it! to see whether or not I got the pattern correct and achieved the desired result! 

I will admit, the process can be a bit challenging for me, because I am so used to creating my own patterns, it is difficult to blindly follow someone else’s written directions, without the benefit of knowing, up front, “Why?” I am doing a certain Stitch or Row, BEFORE I reach the desired, (or necessary to complete the next row) end result. I am always anxious to know EXACTLY where the hook goes, (in the front loop, in the back loop, under both loops), or EXACTLY how many stitches I am supposed to end EACH Row with, or EXACTLY why I am increasing or decreasing THIS Row. What is this Row SUPPOSED to look like? Etc….

However, this all ends when I see the end result! 
I scream, “I did it!” “Look at it! I can do this with it! I can do that with it! Oh, my goodness! Look! I can do this too!” “Where is my camera!” “How many colors can I make it in?” ……..on and on!……

The Möbius Twist is a game changer! It is NOT just an “INFINITY” Scarf! It is a “Möbius Twist” Scarf! 
It is NOT just a Hat! It is a “Möbius Twist” Hat! (Or should I say, a Hat created using the “Möbius Twist”?) 

Whatever you call them, call them “Ingenious”! The completed Hat or Scarf will be worth the initial challenge and investment of time and patience! Each pattern gets easier as you become more comfortable with the techniques and stitches used to create the Twist! 

And Lenore you are the genius! I could never have done it without your patterns, your constant 911 HELP! Your support! and patience! Thank you! Thank you! 

I will send more photos soon, along with the story behind each one. 

Don’t forget you should already have photos of another hat I completed (in white/eggshell). 
I believe it was the Virginia Steampunk, that I said turned out to remind me of the Gele, (only with a Brim). 

I had promised, a few months back, to send more photos of the other Hats I had completed, but I dropped my camera in a toilet at Burger King, BY MISTAKE! I did not have an SD card in it, so unfortunately, many of those photos will have to be taken over again! (What a bummer!)

This was supposed to be short and sweet, but as is usual with me, short never seems to be the case.
Thanks for listening, caring, and especially the “Shout Out”! 

Ms Yvonne

Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern In The Round Single Extended Crochet Stitch

Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern In The Round Single Extended Crochet Stitch

In the previous article I mentioned about the crochet gele hat. It showed you ways how to wear it on the head. This time I will show you how you can wear it around your neck and fashion it many ways. Wear it as the crochet infinity scarf. This is the crochet infinity scarf pattern in the round single extended crochet stitch.

 

 

 

Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern In The Round Single Extended Single Crochet Stitch
Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern In The Round Single Extended Single Crochet Stitch

Make it is as a crochet infinity scarf pattern in the round using a stitch I always use called the single extended crochet stitch. First of all, what is it? It is the extended version of the single crochet stitch. We crocheters know how to single crochet. In case you don’t here’s how.

 

Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern In The Round Single Extended Crochet Stitch

Crochet Infinity Scarf Pattern In The Round Single Extended Single Crochet Stitch

Step 1: Hold crochet hook in right hand and make a slip knot on hook.

Step 2: Bring yarn over hook from back to front and grab it with hook.

Step 3: Draw hooked yarn through slip knot and onto hook. This makes one chain stitch.

Step 4: Skip the first chain stitch.

Step 5: Insert hook into center of next chain stitch. Draw yarn through the chain stitch and up onto the hook. There are now 2 loops on hook.

Step 6: Bring yarn over hook from back to front, and draw it through both loops on hook. One loop remains on the hook, and you have just made one single crochet stitch.

Otherwise here is the entire technique.

Learn Single Crochet | Welcome to the Craft Yarn Council

Repeat Steps 5 and 6 in each of the remaining 27 chains – be sure to work in the very last chain. You have now completed one row of single crochet. Measure your work; it should be about 7″ wide. If it is too wide, try again with fewer beginning chains.

As a result, here is where the extended comes in. Step 6 says to bring yarn over hook from back to front, and draw it through both loops on hook. One loop remains on the hook, and you have just made one single crochet stitch.

Instead, bring yarn over hook from back to front. Pull loop through the first loop only. There are 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over again. Draw it through both loops on hook. One loop remains on the hook, and you have just made one single extended crochet stitch.

This technique is not new. I learned on Nextitch. However, the website no longer exists.

Meet Yvonne, one of my great pattern customers, is at it again. She crocheted this wonderful Gele crochet African head wrap hat It looks like the Deitra head wrap or headwrap hat and the Joan hooded infinity scarf. Wear it for many hair wrap styles. It has amazing ways of coming together. Wear the hat many ways.

Take your crochet up a notch. You don’t need a pattern for the Gele hat. All you need is the Deitra hat or Joan scarf pattern. They are the exact same pattern. I marketed one as a scarf and the other as a head wrap hat. It’s so versatile and the ideas of wearing it are endless. I would like to recommend this for expert crocheters who like to take their crochet up a different level.

Below is the Deitra Hat Pattern is the African Gele Hat.

Speaking of skill level, imagine yourself sewing the same design with 2 pattern brands. One is from Simplicity and the other from Vogue. Of course Vogue is going to be a little more advanced yet it has a more elegant appearance. Therefore, this is the same effect here. This article will help you appreciate the different ways of making this hat and scarf. It’s all done by one simple half twist. the entire design depends on this half twist.

Yvonne Makes Amazing Navy Gele Crochet African Head Wrap Hat

As a result, imagine yourself crocheting an infinity scarf. You work in the flat and work back and forth. Once finished, twist it a 180 degree angle and then join the 2 ends together. In this case, you will do the same thing except it is in the chain. Therefore, you cut extra time from crocheting it back and forth. Moreover, my technique works an endless seam. As a result, the work appears to move up and down in both directions. This may be grasping to understand all at once but once. When you start it’s simpler than it looks.
Yvonne Makes Amazing Navy Blue Gele Crochet African Head Wrap Hat
Yvonne did a wonderful job. She asked tons of questions which is good. One of her main concerns was half twisting in the wrong direction. It doesn’t matter which direction you twist the chain in the beginning. The whole idea is having fun and welcoming a new challenge that is easier than it looks. 
Below are pictures taken by Yvonne herself. She proudly displays her accomplished works of art.
