2nd Anniversary Celebration

2nd Anniversary Celebration

Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber is turning two!


Can you believe that this LYS is turning two years old? Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber has been providing great yarns, patterns, tools, fibers, and more to our community for two whole years now. That’s something to celebrate!

Remember when this was just a tiny hole-in-the-wall yarn shop? Since opening in 2020, this shop has moved into a bigger location, become a Kromski Looms & Wheels dealer, taught over 60 classes, added a dye studio, created a hand-dyed yarn and fiber label, won the Upstate Unsung Hero award, been invited to speak at Carolina FiberFest (next year!) and encouraged so many new friendships and watched them grow. And guess what? This shop is still growing and growing and growing!

Here's how we're Celebrating


~ BIG giveaway basket full of goodies. Every $20 spent in-store AND online earns you 1 entry into the drawing.
~ 1 free ball of Coastal Cotton with every $40 spent.
~ Free R&R Y&F sticker with every purchase.
~ Yummy snacks
~ Batt blending demo on the drum carder at 2pm. Everyone gets a turn!


In addition to all of these wonderful things, I am trying to get us some new Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber T-shirts made, and we will of course have lots of R&R hand-dyed yarn and fiber available.

Bring a friend and let’s party all day! Don’t forget your punch card 🙂

Wanna see what's in the giveaway?

Remember that every $20 spent in-store and online on September 22 will earn you an entry!

Autumn Stitch-along

Autumn Stitch-along

It’s all about the accessories!

There’s just a bit of crispness in the air. Everyone’s home from their vacations, and the kids are back to school. It’s time for another stitch along!

Let’s take a break from the big projects for a while and get back to just enjoying the yarn! Accessories are quick, and can be used to play around with stitch patterns, colorwork, and techniques (not to mention a great way to knock out your holiday gifts.) Each accessory you complete will count as one entry for the prize drawing. This time, instead of a Fashion Show, we’ll have a big group picture of all the accessories together! Won’t that be fun 🙂

Schedule

Starty-Party: Saturday, Sept. 3 at 2pm

Halfway check-in: Saturday, Oct. 1

Fashion Show: Saturday, Nov. 5 at 2pm

Feel free to reach out or swing by the shop for help with patterns, yarn options, and books on techniques and ideas. Here are a few patterns I found on Ravelry that would be just perfect…

Pattern Fudgin’

Pattern Fudgin’

Making it work for the crocheter

How often have you gotten to the end of a row, only to realize that your stitch count is off by one? Or maybe a few… Or hey, what about when you realize that the mistake you made is actually six rows back? Doesn’t that just burn you up?!

Heavy sigh, and maybe a bad word of two, and then I guess it’s time to frog. Or is it? Maybe not!

We all know that there is a time and place for ripping out hours of work (ugh) in order to make our finished item exactly how we want it (although I’m a huge fan of using blocking to hide a multitude of sins.) If the mistake is clearly noticeable, or if it is messing up your stitch counts in a way that can’t be faked, then sometimes we have to suck it up and get to ripping. However, it’s just not always necessary. We want to enjoy the journey of our craft, so if there’s a way to hit on a quick fix and move on where nobody would ever notice, then shouldn’t we give that possibility a day in court? Let me help you with some easy fixes so you can continue on with what you love. We’ll leave the frogs in the pond.

 

Adding Stitches

Sometimes when your stitch count is short just one or two, it’s easiest to squeeze in a couple of stitches here and there and keep going, rather than frog. However, putting two stitches into one stitch can be noticeable, especially if you’re using bulky yarn or working at a tight gauge.
My preferred method is to work a decrease as an increase. Yes, you read that right! Ready? Here we go!

  • work your next stitch as usual
  • now work a decrease in the SAME stitch as the stitch you just worked AND the next stitch
  • and now work a new stitch in the same stitch into which you finished your decrease

    Do you see what just happened? You just worked three stitches (regular stitch, decrease, regular stitch) into two stitches. I have found this to be the least noticeable way to squeeze in stitches, although it works better with single crochet than it does with double. Give it a try on a swatch and see what you think!

Decreasing Like a Pro

Just as there can be less noticeable increases, there is a little known decrease that is equally less detectable when done correctly. I can’t figure out why this isn’t the new standard way to decrease, as it’s super easy and almost can’t be found even when you’re looking for it later. I did not create this decrease, but you can thank me for the info when you decide that your life has been changed 😉
Let’s do it!

  • To decrease the next two stitches, insert your hook into just the front loop of the next stitch. Do not draw up a loop!
  • Now insert your hook into just the front loop of the next stitch. Do not draw up a loop! You should now have two front loops on your hook.
  • Work your stitch as usual (a regular sc, hdc, dc, or whatever you happen to be doing.)

    Yep, that’s it. Dead easy, right? Once you’ve worked a couple of rows/rounds, go back and look at that decrease. It’s almost invisible! It also uses less yarn than the standard 2tog stitches. You are very welcome.

Fudge for the win!

Are you liking how this is working? Fudging is my favorite way of getting a project back on track, as long as I can make it work. Using these two tricks can help you modify so many other stitch patterns so that your mistakes are mostly covered up without the need to rip out so much of your precious time and effort.

Sometimes we want things to be perfect (wedding dress, perhaps?) We also sometimes can’t fudge in a way that won’t be glaringly obvious (ask me about the V-stitch turned dc right smack dab in the middle front of a sweater I made…) When we can though, saving ourselves the time and aggravation tends to be our best bet for continuing to enjoy our project. As my friend Kristy says, “If they can’t see it when you’re riding by on a galloping horse, then it doesn’t matter.” 

Til next time, friends. Enjoy your stitching ♥

Summer Lace-Along

Summer Lace-Along

Don’t be scared! It’s just lace.

It’s finally summer, and you know what that means….. a brand new KAL/CAL! This season, we’re all about that lace. Be it lace-weight yarn, a lace stitch pattern, or both, summer is the time to kick back and enjoy all the light and lovely things.

So here's the plan

I want to do something a little different and you will have the chance to earn multiple entries into the prize drawing! You may choose how YOU define lace. 

You’ll get one entry into the Fashion Show drawing if you use a lace weight yarn, you’ll get one entry if you make something using a lace stitch pattern, but you’ll get THREE entries if you use both!
(As always, entries only count if you participate in the Fashion Show) 

Here’s our timeline:
Cast-on (or chain) Party: Friday, June 17
Halfway check-in: Friday, July 15
Fashion Show!: Saturday, August 13

Rainbow Banner

Rainbow Banner

FREE Crochet Pattern

Nothing brightens up a day like a rainbow, am I right? This rainbow banner is just what we all need to feel cheerful and happy! Crocheted in simple motifs and strung together with a simple chain, you can whip this banner up in no time at all. In fact, why not make a bunch to sell at craft shows or in your Etsy shop? They’re so quick and easy, I just know you’ll be hooked at first stitch.

Want a printable .pdf of this pattern for just $1.99? Click here.

First of all...

Stitches:  Ch, sc, dc

Yarn:  Any worsted weight (#4) cotton in rainbow colors, or any colors you like. Get creative and rep your flag! Clean Cotton at Rows & Roses is an excellent choice.

Hook:  H8/5mm

Sizes:  Adjustable. My motifs are approx. 7” wide and 3.5” tall.

Gauge:  Absolutely not important 

NOTES:
~ Picot is worked as follows: ch 2, sl st in first ch made
~ Please make the starting dc of each row however you like. I used a standing double crochet, but you can use a “ch 3, (counts as a st,) dc in first st” or a “ch 2 (does not count as a st,) 2dc in first st.” This is yours. Make it how you like it.

Let's Go!

Pattern:

Motif:
Ch 4. Join with sl st to first ch made. Now you have a ring.

1) 6dc in ring. Do NOT join. Turn.

2) 2dc in each st across. Turn.

3) (dc, ch 1) in first st, *dc in next st, (dc, ch 1) in next st; rep from * to last st, dc in last st. Turn.

4) Dc in first st, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in ch-1 sp, dc 2; rep from * to last ch-1 sp, (dc, ch 1, dc) in last ch-1 sp, dc in last st. Turn.

5) Dc in first two st, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in ch-1 sp, dc 4; rep from * to last ch-1 sp, (dc, ch 1, dc) in last ch-1 sp, dc 2. Turn.

6) Ch 1, sc 3, *(2 sc, picot, sc) in ch-1 sp, sc 6; rep from * to last ch-1 sp, (2 sc, picot, sc) in last ch-1 sp, sc 3. Do not turn, do not cut! Continue to border.

Border:

Work two more sc in same st, sc evenly across the top of motif. Work two more sc in last st and join with sl st to first sc from Row 6.

Cut yarn, weave in ends.


Make as many motifs as you like. I made seven, one in each ROYGBIV color to create a true rainbow. Once you are finished making motifs, join them with a long chain, working into the top border stitches of each motif and chaining between them.

This is how I joined mine, but again, please make this your own.


In white, ch 12, join with sl st to first ch made (this makes a hanging loop,) ch 20, sl st into the back loop of each st across top of first motif. After final sl st, ch 1, and continue working across top of second motif.

Once finished with the final motif, ch 20, place marker in ch on hook, ch 12 more, join with sl st to marked ch, remove marker.

Weave in ends. Hang anywhere you need to remember how amazing you are and how bright and happy life can be <3

Please show us your banners! Share a pic to your favorite social media and tag @RowsAndRoses and #RowsAndRosesPride so we can all see what you’ve created. As always, if you need me, I’m only a click or two away.


LYS Day

LYS Day

April 30, Let’s Celebrate!

Are you ready for an amazing good time at your Local Yarn Shop? Join us on Saturday, April 30 for the 5th Annual LYS Day. This is the day where we all celebrate our local yarn shop, get to know the local yarn community, participate in a community project, and enjoy snacks, coupons, and fun, all day long!
This year, Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber will be participating for the very first time, and we have a super fun project for you to get in on. We’re making squares to frame the front windows, so everyone driving by will KNOW where the yarn shop is.
Yarn and hooks will be provided to use while in store to make your square. At this time, I do not have a set of “shop needles” for public use, so knitters, bring your own needles! Knit or crochet a square, any size (within reason, of course,) right here in the sitting area while sipping coffee or tea, munching on goodies, and enjoying the company of other local yarn lovers. Once your square is complete, I’ll trade you a coupon for it with no expiration date. In fact, you can turn right around and use it that very day!

All the fun details...

There are so many things happening on this special day! Come on into the shop to enjoy:
~ Exclusive LYS Day colorway, “Orchids,” will be available in Rows & Roses Hand-dyed Yarn in multiple bases.
~ Free copy of knit Coterie Shawl pattern with purchase of any two skeins/balls of fingering weight yarn.
~ Special Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber merch will be available.
~ Light refreshments provided. 
Orchids

As if this weren’t enough of a good time…… perhaps we’ll put a few things on sale. You know, to make it interesting.
We’re open 10am-5pm that day, so come early, bring a friend, make a square, and enjoy all the fun and friendship your LYS can provide.

Karma Vest

Karma Vest

FREE crochet pattern

Get glitzy and glam this spring with a brand new vest! Karma Vest makes the most out of your Lang Karma by letting this shimmery yarn do it’s thing. A super easy fold-over construction makes this a cinch to seam, and the ability to just toss it on (or off!) allows for ease of wear. The open stitch pattern makes it a quick stitch, and the FRINGE! Oh my, that fringe is everything.

Want a printable .pdf for just $1.99? Click here.

The Details

Stitches:  Ch, sc, dc, sdc (standing double crochet)
Yarn:  Lang Karma, DK (#3) 311 yards per ball, 2 (3) balls
Shown in color 0003
Hook: I9/5.5mm
SizesWomens S/M (L/XL)
Across the back, from armhole to armhole, measures 20” (24.25) at rest
Gauge: 5 V-st x 7 rows = 4″, blocked

NOTESListen, this is a VERY forgiving, shapeless, fluttery, flappy garment. It doesn’t need to “fit” as much as other garments. I would say the S/M would be good for anyone with average sized back and shoulders, or up to a  size L in most womens clothing. The L/XL is best suited for those with a broader back and shoulders. It hangs open in the front, so no need to fit around the bust.


Karma Vest

Let's Gooooo!

Pattern:

Ch 83

1) Sc across. Turn.  = 82 st

2) Sdc in first st, sk 1, *V-st, sk 2; rep from * to last 3 st, v-st, sk 1, dc in last st. Turn.  = 27 V-st

3) Sdc in first st, *V-st in space of V-st; rep from * to last st, dc in last st. Turn.

4-31) Rep Row 3

Divide for front panels:

Panel 1:

Pm in center of 14th V-st. There should be 13 V-st on each side of m.

1) Sdc in first st, *V-st in space of V-st; rep from * until you have 1 V-st left before m, dc in center of that V-st, leaving marked V-st unworked. Turn.   = 12 V-st with 1 dc on each end of row.

2) Sdc, *V-st in next V-st; rep from * to last st, dc in last st. Turn.

3-30) Rep Row 2

Cut yarn.

Panel 2:

1) Join yarn in V-st just before marked st with a sdc, leaving marked V-st unworked, *V-st in next V-st; rep from * to last st, dc in last st. Turn.  = 12 V-st with 1 dc on each end of row

2) Sdc, *V-st in next V-st; rep from * to last st, dc in last st. Turn.

3-30) Rep Row 2

Cut yarn, weave in ends. 

Fold front panels “over the top” to touch end-to-end with back panel. Seam sides as you like them. I left 2” vents at the bottom of mine, and large armholes for a loose, fluttery fit.

Block to measurements (this yarn takes a block pretty well, so don’t be afraid to pull and stretch and pin how you need it. You won’t hurt it.)

Once dry, remove from blocking mat and use remaining yarn to make fringe. I like to wrap mine around a small book over and over so they’re all the same size.

Attach fringe however you want! I attached 3 strands in each V-st sp on both front panels and back panel. You can do more, or fewer, or even add beads to your fringe for a boho look. Make it YOURS! That’s the most important part.

Thank you so much for making a Karma Vest with me! I’d love to see what you’ve created. Post a pic to your favorite social media and tag @RowsAndRoses and #RowsAndRosesKarmaVest so we can all see what you’ve done with yours. As always, if you need me, I’m only a click or two away.

Spring Cardi-along

Spring Cardi-along

Any pattern, any yarn. Let’s get stitchin’!

Springtime is upon us, and there is nothing like a good cardigan for the chilly mornings and evenings. Here in the South, spring weather is especially fickle and we never know how to dress from one day (or hour) to the next. A light-weight cardi is just what we need. Let’s make one together! 

This Cardi-along, like all of the -alongs at Rows & Roses, will err on the side of less rules rather than more. It’s not super structured, and the schedule is just to keep you on track IF you need it. If you can’t make the cast-on party, or you’re not quite halfway at the halfway mark, please don’t stress! This is supposed to be fun. As long as you wear your finished cardi in for the Fashion Show, you’re good.

Schedule

Cast-on Party: Tuesday, March 8 at 2pm (I know it’s called “cast-on” but it’s just a term we’re using. This is for knitters AND crocheters!)
Halfway check-in: Saturday, April 2 (you can swing by for a WIP pic, or you can simply post your own on the page or in the group.)
Fashion Show: Friday, May 27 at 2pm

You can find all of the info, as well as a discussion thread, in the event on Facebook. If you can’t make it into the shop, or if you have pictures to post, questions to ask, or ideas to share, this is where you can do that!

Perfect Yarns

Not sure which yarn you want to use? I’m here to help! All of the yarns shown below are excellent choices for a spring cardigan.
Some of these yarns have limited quantities (such as Divina, which has been discontinued by the manufacturer,) and others have not yet made it into the shop (the ones that say “sold out” on the website.) Don’t worry, we have plenty of choices for the cast-on party, and if you want to wait a little longer, MUCH more on the way.

Come shop all of them here. 

I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations. Come to the cast-on party if you can make it, and be sure to bring your cardi into the shop to work on throughout the spring if you’re local. If you’re not local, you may post all of your pictures and ideas in the facebook event. There are tons of pattern ideas listed in the event discussion, as well, so if you’re needing inspiration, that’s the place to go.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns- whether about yarn, patterns, sizes, gauge, blocking, or anything else- I’m just a click or a phone call away.

Crocheted in a chevron stitch but in one solid color, this lightweight scarf is  a great summertime weight, and super quick to work up. Tassels on the ends make it extra fun to wear. If you’re looking for a quick project to try out a yarn, this is it.

The End of a Season

The End of a Season

A closing door can mean freedom

Hello, friends. I hope you have all had a great start to the new year. 2022 should be kind to us after all we’ve been through, don’t you think?

I come to you today with a bit of an announcement, as well as just some ramblings and wonderings. I hope you can indulge me.

A little over a week ago, I received some pretty shocking and upsetting news: WeCrochet, the crochet company and yarn brand which I have been so quick to support in every way, and have been entwined with in so many ways since they first went live, made a very strange decision. Without a word of warning, they pulled almost all of their lace and fingering weight yarns from their site. Their explanation, when asked by a concerned Ravelry user? “Those yarns aren’t really used for crochet.”

I lost my breath, my stomach hit the floor, and I stared aghast at my computer screen for probably a full minute. Is this real life? Not used for crochet? Since when?!

So many of us designers, who not only design with their yarns but actually FOR THEIR BRAND, use these yarns often. We have patterns in their Independent Designer Program using these yarns. These patterns are sold on their site, with the intentions of having visitors purchase the yarns for the patterns. How, then, are we to sell our patterns if the yarns are not also available?

Before anyone helpfully reminds me that Knit Picks is basically the same company and sells these yarns, so we can just go get them there…… that is completely beside the point. WeCrochet is supposed to be all about crochet. They are supposed to support crochet designers and offer a spotlight for showing what crochet can do and be, without the overall implication of being a counterpart to knitting. You cannot claim to be a crochet advocate while simultaneously limiting the yarns for your crocheters to use. I have designed crochet patterns and created crocheted items from #10 thread all the way up to super-bulky. Saying that lighter weight yarns aren’t used for crochet is just ignorant and enhances the stigma that crochet is only good for certain things.

Due to all of this madness, I have a two part announcement to make.

First...

After my latest pattern goes live in March (a pattern they asked for, using a yarn that they don’t even sell now, so…huh? Whatever.) I will be distancing myself from the WeCrochet brand. 

I will no longer be designing patterns in their yarn, considering that not all of their yarns are “for me.” My existing patterns will remain in their IDP program for as long as they will leave them there. I mean, every little bit helps for us starving artists, right? However, no more new patterns for them. I’m appalled at their attitude and cannot in good conscience continue to support them.

I will still test patterns when they send them to me, as we crocheters NEED the patterns tested! I feel better knowing that patterns go through such rigorous testing (they really do) before they are released. And again, every little bit helps.

Also...

I have decided to take this year off from designing in a “designing as a business” capacity. I miss creating new things and trying out new ideas simply for the sake of enjoyment. Being an ambassador for two years brought me 24 hard deadlines. I was happy to do it, and it was a wonderful opportunity, but now I am ready to relax into creating for fun. 

I’m not saying I won’t release any new patterns this year. I’m just saying that I will not be shackling myself to deadlines or contracts that will push me to go go go like I’ve had to do for the past two years. I will self-publish as I choose, and I hope to work with Expression Fiber Arts  and Interweave again this year if they will be willing to work with my self-imposed LACK of designing schedule. I’m happy with a deadline that’s 10 months away. Not so much with 4 weeks…. you feel me? It’s been stressful and I’m ready to unwind and relax with my yarn again!

In closing...

If you have made it this far through my self-indulgent rant, I thank you kindly from the bottom of my heart. The friends, fans, and customers of Rows & Roses are the lifeblood of this brand. You are all in the details of everything I do and every pattern, yarn, and event that I put out there. Never have I felt more validated, more appreciated, or more loved than when I am in the thick of it with all of you. Every like, every share, every page view, every download… they all mean the world to me. 

Thanks for being my friends. Thanks so much for your support. I adore every single one of you. You are what keeps me going ♥
