With Cubbie’s addition to our family, it’s been a pretty crazy year. I was working on fall projects through the spring and summer, and when I started work on Plaid, I knew I wanted to bring something fresh this year. We love traditional buffalo plaid, but I wanted to create something different. This crochet tartan plaid technique came together much easier than I thought and I love the finished result.
One awesome thing as well is that this crochet tartan plaid technique uses the same stitch count as my original buffalo plaid technique (multiples of 6 for turning rows, multiples of 6 minus 1 for joined rows) so you can convert many of my older patterns to this color design easily.
The technique is slightly different so I have included a photo tutorial.
CROCHET TARTAN JOINED ROUNDS:
What I’m working on: Crochet Tartan Plaid Hat
ROW ONE: Begin with a project that is in multiples of 6 minus 1. Start your crochet tartan project with your red and wine color. Using your red color, ch Dc in same st and dc in next 2 sts. This is only 3 sts, but the chain makes it look like 4 sts, so this makes the seam look much nicer.
Switch to your wine color. Dc in the next 2 sts.
Switch back to your red color. Dc in next 4 sts.
You will repeat this color work all around. Join with the first st, not the ch 2.
ROW TWO: You will repeat row one. The main squares of the crochet tartan will be 4 dc wide and 2 rows tall, with the thinner stripes running through it.
ROW THREE: Pull up your wine color. Ch 2. Dc in same st. Dc in next two sts. This counts as the first 4-st block. Join your dark/black color. Dc in next 2 sts. Switch back to your wine color. Dc in next 4 sts. Repeat the pattern of working 2 dc with your black and 4 with your wine color all around the project. Join with the first st (not the ch 2).
(If you were working in turning rows, you would need to carry your red color through this entire row)
Repeat the three rows respectively until your project is as tall as you would like. That’s it!
The turning rows technique is similar when working turning rows, you just want to make sure that you are carrying your red yarn on row 3 so you have it when you need it the following row. In joined rows, you will just drop the yarn and pick it up at the beginning of the next row.

This pretty and modern collection of crochet plaid patterns includes all the patterns from Plaid Week 2017 plus four bonus patterns only available in the book. If you love these, you may like the Vol. 1 ebook, too!
For the last three years I have promised myself that I will start designing for Christmas and Fall in the spring and summer so there is no rushing and no stressing when Crochet Season and the Holidays roll around…So I guess I will add another year onto the pile. Maybe next year, right? I am relieved to finally get this book put together because I hit a few snags, one being that I could NOT get the counts and shaping right on one of the patterns I intended to include in the Crochet Plaid Collection Vol. 2 Book (Get it on Etsy and Ravelry). So, despite my promises, it only includes 4 bonus patterns instead of 5. I hope you love it anyway!
These are the 4 bonus patterns that are included in the book:
1. Plaid Clutch
I based this clutch on my very beginner-friendly wrap clutch. I just love the boho look of it. And of course, faux fur goes perfect with buffalo plaid so I made a small pom-pom to go on the end of the wrap. I would suggest using short pile fur, so it’s not too bulky.
2. Buckled Neck Warmer Scarf
The scarf turned out so cute! It’s simple to make, and has a unique look to it. I was originally going to put this pattern up for Plaid Week, but decided to focus on reader suggestions instead. I haven’t done too much with hardware, but I think I will change that, because it certainly adds a nice touch and it is simple to attach.
3. Market Tote
I designed this market tote with #6 bulky, the same yarn I used to make the Plaid Tree Skirt, so it works up quite fast and is thick and durable. I might line it and add some pockets. It’s the perfect size to take shopping, but it would also make a lovely yarn tote.
4. Moose Lovey
Oh plushies! I am not so good at designing them. This guy almost didn’t happen because I about threw in the towel. I decided to persevere, but he looks a bit like a caribou, and could possibly be a deer as well. You know how you say a word over and over and it loses it’s meaning? That might be my problem here…does it look like a moose?

These cute crochet woodland animal hats feature a cute plaid and gingham color scheme! They are worked from the bottom up and forming the ears is simply done by closing the top flat and cinching the ears a bit. The pattern includes sizing for the whole family
One of my favorite patterns from Plaid Week this year was my Plaid Fox Hat. It was a vision that came together beautifully and I was so happy with how the pattern turned out. When I shared in on Facebook, I had a few people throw out ideas for other animals. I loved the idea of a whole woodland animal set, so I got to work designing other Plaid Woodland Animal Hats. The Raccoon and Deer were simple enough, but the Bear was a bit tricky. Bears have roundish ears so I had to do a bit of experimenting. Luckily, and idea of how to make the ears round came to me, and it worked out beautifully!

Plaid Week turned out wonderful this year (mostly due to YOU). I hope you enjoyed all the new patterns because I had so much fun designing them. Due to your enthusiasm, I have decided to do Plaid Week for the next few years! At least for the foreseeable future while both you and I are excited about it. Or until I run out of ideas…That being said, I have written quite a few crochet plaid patterns to date and I decided to compile them all in one place for easy access.
