This week’s roundup is another reader request! Self striping yarns are uhhhhh-mazing. Color changes without ends to weave in? Check. Long repeats that can prevent weird pooling issues? Check. Multi-color projects without worrying about which colors go together? And check! The only downside is, it can be hard to find a lot of patterns written for these yarns in one place. So I asked my crochet designer friends to share best self-striping crochet patterns, and here they are – free crochet patterns for self striping yarn!

Hi Tamera, I was able to print the ripple puff dishcloths, but couldn’t print the shawl. ??????
Can you do a crochet Pokemon roundup?
I’d love to Stacy, but I’ve had to stop doing roundups of copyrighted characters due to legal issues. :/ What I can do is share this link you might find interesting… 😉 http://rav.to/1gUfDPz
what do you mean by self striping yarn?
Yarn with color changes, where each section of color is quite long – as opposed to variegated, where each section of color is quite short. 🙂
Luv your website and your beautiful patterns!
Thank you so much Julie!
I would love to make the cafe curtain made of flower motifs with ties at the top. I can’t find the pattern on your website. Is it possible to get this pattern. The curtain is gorgeous. Thank you!
The link should be here I think: https://www.mooglyblog.com/10-free-crochet-curtain-patterns/
Pattern #2 A MALEFICENT COWL by Mary Kathryn of CROCHET CHIC is not available. Tamara, can you help me find this pattern with the star stitch? I love it and realize it was posted a while back but hopefully I can find it.
This is my second request as the first one today has disappeared.
Hi Carolyn! When it’s the first time commenting with a particular email address, it gets held for review, and only approved by me – this it to prevent spam! Once you’ve had a comment approved (like this one!) the rest go through without having to wait.
It looks like her site is down right now for maintenance – hopefully it will be back up soon! I’m afraid that’s the only place it’s located, as far as I know.
