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

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
