Black Gradient Yarns Collection



Whenever I have a yarn delivery, I grab one or two for myself, who can resist these beautiful yarns! It is also my way of testing the quality of the yarn, to see how's the color changing, and how it looks like in a finished project. For this Black Gradient Yarns Collection, I used the Black - Red - Light Red color to make this scarf. I used Shellscape By Lisa Cook, this is a perfect pattern to showcase the beautiful color-changing of the yarn. 


My scarf has an almost equal amount of color black and red. I have plenty left over for one cake of yarn, I didn't get to the lighter color of red. The leftover yarn can be used to make a small doily, tassel earrings, or barefoot sandals.


Here are all the colors for Black Gradient Yarns Collections, and there will a Black - Pink - Light Pink version coming in my next yarn delivery. You can buy them at my Etsy shop: anabelletracy. If you like something be sure to grab it quick as they sell fast! My best sellers color is the Black - Purple - Light Purple, it sold just a few minutes after I post it!

Are you looking for a specific color combination? Comment below and I'll try my best to make it for you!

Crochet Rainbow Skull Parasol




It's all started with this sparkly rainbow yarn/thread!

This is one of the yarns that I imported from the Philippines. My supplier is so kind and gave me a cone of a metallic thread too! I decided to re-wind my yarn together with the metallic thread to give it a sparkly effect. It will be available again in the first week of April at my Etsy shop: Anabelle Tracy. The last batch sold quickly, so if you want this rainbow yarn, grab it as fast as you can!

gothic parasol

I've been wanting to make a parasol, I want something unique. Until I saw this talented designer in one of the crochet group that I'm in. I sent her a message and ask her if it is possible to have a big skull doily and the skulls are facing outward because I'm planning to make it into a parasol and she is happily accepted my challenge! It takes a while before she finally releases the pattern and it is superb! It's more than I imagine. If you will look closely it is not just skulls, there are also full skeleton!

Crochet Lace Rainbow Parasol

I will not be able to make this beautiful parasol without the awesome pattern made by Ann Wanamaker. You can find this pattern at her Ravelry shop: Skelly Go Round With Skulls Of Plenty

I applaud my husband for taking a decent picture of me hahaha.

Crochet Parasol

My love of crochet, rainbow, and sugar skulls in one masterpiece.


Skulls and skeletons tan lines anyone?

After this, I know there will be more parasol in the future! I'm searching now for the next pattern and perfect yarn!

Demelza Infinity Scarf



Flower Crochet Pattern

Lace Crochet Pattern

Crochet Treasures Pattern

Ombre Thread

Hi everybody! It's been a while since the last time I design a crochet pattern, and here I am so excited to show you my very first pattern for this year, Demelza infinity scarf! Okay, who are watching Poldark here? If you are watching this British drama series for sure you knew who is Demelza! I adore her so much hence, I named my latest pattern after her. The scenes where she picks up flowers beside the seaside is where I got my inspiration, a combination of flowers and ripple pattern. And of course, the yarn that I used makes my scarf looks more amazing, don't you think?

You can find the pattern at Ravelry: Demelza Infinity Scarf
Yarns are available to buy at my Facebook group: Crochet Treasures 
and at my Etsy shop: Anabelle Tracy Etsy Shop

Crochet Lace Gown & Beautiful Yarns

DIY Wedding Gown

 A very delicate and beautiful gown I made using handmade gradient color-changing yarn.

It's been a while since the last time I crocheted, even a snowflake. Last month, I decided to import beautiful yarns from the Philippines and create a project to check the quality of the yarn. I made the Chrysanthemum Gown that is designed by Chi Krneta. Using the suggested crochet hook sizes and in the size small, I finished the gown with still a lot of leftover yarns that I decided to buy the "Chrysanthemum Gown Train Addition" pattern for the longer gown version. Using only one cake of yarn, I only got to round 40 of the train. The Chrysanthemum Gown Train Addition has 54 rounds plus the edging or you can continue the gown and add the optional flare at the back side which has another 40 more rounds. I can say that I'm very happy with this yarn's quality and the beautiful gradual color-changing. I'm already searching for my next project!


I keep seeing these beautiful yarns from my fellow Filipino crocheter and knitters friends and I'm really itching to try it. Even though the price is affordable, you can't just buy one or ten of it because of the expensive shipping fee. You need to buy it in bulk order, like 80 cakes of yarns to justify the shipping fee!


So last month, I decided to order in bulk and re-sell the other to my fellow crocheter and knitters here in the US and outside the country. These are 8-ply of cotton threads that they wind together by hand. They mixed at least three to eight different colors carefully for gradual color-changing effect. I found it weird that they are selling it by grams, not by yards. There are 250 grams to 300 grams each cake. My vendor said it is 1100 yards or more. Yes, indeed it is more than 1100 yards since the Chrysanthemum gown that I made requires 1500 yards for the short version and another 1500 yards for the additional train!

These beautiful handmade yarns are available at our Etsy shop: www.anabelletracy.etsy.com 

Join us at Facebook Group- https://www.facebook.com/groups/crochetreasures/ to get these yarns at more affordable prices, as I post there first whenever I have a sale!
