  1. Perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Thanks for the pattern.

    • You are welcome

    • Hi
      Thank you for all you do for all of us crocheters who can’t make our own patterns!! Thx. I need to get back to making chemo beanies to donate. I had to resort to selling on ebay, because I got laid off and there’s no big market out there for a 56 year old handicapped high risk pregnancy nurse who has to work at home even in insurance where I was laid off, so…..I did start an cancer awareness shop and make jewelry but not for that reason. I’ve lost both of my sisters to two unrelated cancers, so I can donate a portion of the sales. My first sister died from ovarian cancer 7 years ago and I could not find any support jewelry to wear, it was very frustrating, so now I just make my own in their honor. I am sorry for your loss but you do her great honor.

    • This is my first visit to your site. Amazing work, and thank you for not charging for the patterns. Your work is beautiful and colors all work together. Beautiful!

  2. ksinc33 (Kathleen)

    Thanks for the pattern. It will go great with the other ones. ksinc33

  3. Thanks for this pattern – I can’t wait to get started on it. I have the perfect yarn in my stash so it won’t be long!

  4. This great thank you for all of your patterns.

  5. Alice Scroggins

    Is row 21 of Amazing Grace snoodie missing on the pattern or just a miss print in row numbers? Thank you

  6. Cynthia Wingate

    Thank you so much for your beautiful patterns that you have given to the public! You are so talented. May I ask what yarn you used for the Snoodie? It’s so pretty. Thank you. May God bless you for your generosity.

  7. This is lovely Elena 🙂

  8. The Purple Poncho

    Great pattern Elena! I can’t wait to make this, thank you.

  9. Reblogged this on ELK Studio – Handcrafted Crochet Designs and commented:
    Beautiful free pattern!

  10. Beautiful pattern Elena, and the colors are gorgeous too!

  11. Reblogged this on FutrellCrochet.

  12. OMG~ I thought I loved your other Amazing Grace Patterns but this one tops them all for me!

  13. Tis is so pretty! I work with a lady who is undergoing treatment. I will definitely be making this for her!

  14. Thank for the pattern. One question please how to do the reverse sc. Thanks.

    • A Reverse Sc is simply working your single crochet in the opposite direction than the usual left… you work your stitches going to the right… So insert your hook in the first stitch to the right and continue just like a normal sc ,,, continuing in each stitch going right… It is a little tricky the first couple stitches,,, but once you do it you will see how easy it is… It creates a rope like effect for a nice finishing edge…

  15. Absolutely gorgeous Elena!!! Thank you so much for entering the Made It 🙂

  16. Reblogged this on Pattern Paradise and commented:
    I just had to share this beautiful Amazing Grace Snoodie designed by Beatrice Ryan Designs.

  17. I hopped over from Moogly. Great pattern, thank you for sharing! M

  18. Just finished this beautiful snood. Am I wrong or is the trc count 15 and not 30. Or maybe I did something wrong. Please advise.

    • Yes it is 30… Not sure how I did that… lol I was trying so hard to finish typing by the last day of Oct… I just missed that… Thank you and all fixed… post your pic to my Ravelry page if you can… I would love to see it!!

  19. Thank you for this beautiful pattern! I am making it for my mom for Christmas, beautiful stitch pattern. I am almost done with the hood part, I’m having trouble understanding where and how it attaches. Can you help?

    • Just sew the bottom base of the hood onto the top edge of the cowl… I stitched it in place on the inside edge of the cowl… like the back loops of the Rev Sc… You can attach at any point and sew around… It will take up a little more than half of the cowl … The part of the cowl that doesnt have the hood attached is the front… Kind of like a hoodie sweatshirt ( How the hood is attached to the sweatshirt.

      Hope that helps

    • If you still have problems email me and I will send you additional photos… [email protected]

  20. That makes it seem so simple, I think I got it now, you’re so sweet, thank you so much 🙂

  21. This looks like a beautiful pattern! It’s my first cowl though and I seem to be having trouble with keeping it from twisting. Do you think your pattern will work if I simply go back and forth and then sew the two sides together?

  22. Lovely! Thanks so much for linking up on Hookin On Hump Day!

  23. Liz or Elizabeth

    I love this. To the point that I posted it to FB, Tweeted it, Pinned it, plus posted it on Google+ Thank you for sharing.

  24. Love it thanks for sharing!

  25. Love it! Thank you for sharing

  26. Beautiful design. Surprisingly easy to sew together. Thank you for sharing this pattern. I have just finished my snoodie.

  27. I will be making this for my aunt who is suffering from advanced stage breast cancer. Thank you so much for the pattern. She has already lost all her hair and says her head and neck get quite cold at night so this is perfect for her. Thank you again

  28. Gorgeous 🙂 It will really be a very pretty addition to the other items I donate each year to our cancer center, the children’s hospital 🙂

  29. Thank you as some gals are in cool evenings and this could be a helper? Lovely.

  30. Hi, I am currently making this using a Dk weight yarn, so I went up a hook size and have kept the tension looser than I normally crochet, it measures 11 and 1/2 inches wide (23 inch circle), does that seem right? BTW Love the design

  31. Did you block your snoodie afterwards and if so how? I can’t find anything on the net that says how to do a snoodie, lots on scarves, cowls and beanies

  32. My mom was just diagnosed with stage1 uteran cancer and asked me to make a cowl for her to keep her head warm for this winter aftergoing chemo. She is going to love this so much more than just a cowl 🙂
    Thank you for sharing your patterns, I love each one!

  33. Thank you so much 🙂

  34. I finally have the perfect yarn to make this!

  35. I love this pattern! I have never made a snoodie but I will have to try it! Thank you for this pattern!

  36. I just finished hooking up your ‘Snoodie’. I first saw it on a share from Elk Studio Crochets and fell in love. This was so easy to work up. Your directions are simple and very clear to follow. I will be completing on my Ravelry project (Rav I’d is lil4star) and adding pictures. While I am there, will be browsing for more Amazing Grace accessories. Hopefully something to use up the rest of this yarn.

    Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents.

  37. I’ve checked this pattern out a few times and think I’m gonna try for it. The snoodie.. it’s very pretty

  38. Thank you so much for the Snoodie pattern. I made it and the day after I finished, I found out my friend’s sister had been diagnosed with liver cancer ao of course, it was sent to her and she loves it! I am finishing another for my 30 year old OR nurse friend who just began radiation for a brain tumor. Just
    Thought you would like to know how much we appreciated your sharing this pattern for free, and to know it is going to good use. Thank you!

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Thank you! I love hearing about people using my patterns to comfort others… so sorry for your friends Cancer’s!!!

  39. This hoodie is super cute! I added a pair of cat ears on the hoodie too ^_^ thanks!

  40. God Bless you for your generosity in sharing your God given talent with the rest of us. Your patterns are amazing and easy to follow. I’m a newbie to the crochet world. At 56 who would have ever thought. My friends are shaking their heads wondering if I was kidnapped by aliens. I now belong to a group of ladies who crochet projects to give to those in need. I’m going to suggest the next be for Breast cancer. It is near to me heart. My sister in law has been cancer free now for 9 years and I pray for many more. A close friend just had a double mastectomy rather than a single in hopes to prevent and ting seeking up in the future. Thanks you again for sharing your talent and creativity. Bonnie

  41. I and many others have Trigeminal Neuralgia, a severely painful facial nerve pain disorder. Wind is a big trigger that can start the pain that is very hard to control. This hood, I am making the cowl into a longer scarf to wrap around closely, will go over hats and masks making everything look pretty and be functional. I am making one for my Valentines exchange sister warrior using lots of teal, our awareness color. Thought you would like to know the pattern is helping people with other diseases too.

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      I have heard of this disease… so sorry for your suffering… I hope wearing this helps… Thank you for letting me know!

  42. I just wanted to thank you for your work and creativity. You have been blessed with a lovely gift. I knit house shoe at home and crochet prayer shawls with the ladies at church. I send the house shoes all over the world to different people who are ill. The prayer shawls are given to different people for a need, i.e. illness, grief, difficult time, and more. I really like your patterns. I am not creative in that I am able to create a unique work. I can take other ideas and change them to meet my needs. I am currently knitting a pair of house shoes for someone who needs a special pair. I adjust the length, width of the bottom, and around the top of the foot based on measurements. I have been knitting house shoes for 47 years. Thank you so much for your ideas and patterns. God Bless You. Kathy

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Thank you so much for your kind words… That is so generous of you do do so much charity too!

  43. Thank you so much for blessing so many people, including myself, with your generous gift of your patterns. Being a cancer survivor of 12 years I am going to attempt this snoodie for myself.

  44. I so love the granny square pattern on this page. Could I please have yarn color and quantities? I think it would be great as lapgans for friends (and myself) in wheelchairs. Thank you so much for all you do.

  45. Love the pattern. Thanks for sharing. Did one for some one who asked me to give as a gift.

  46. How long does this take to make for an intermediate crocheter?

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      I’m not really sure… each person crochets at different speeds even if they are very proficient… But probably a weekend project…

      • Perfect! I’ve been looking for a weekend project and just ordered the yarn for this. I’m making it for my Aunt fight cancer now. Thank you for a beautiful pattern for a beautiful cause.

  47. This is a wonderful pattern. I will be making two. One for myself and one to sell in aid of breast cancer awareness. Our Woolly Wednesday group have already raised a lot of money making a “topless” calendar for 2016, posing with our knitted and crochet projects. We range in age from our twentys to sixtys!!! We did it because one of our friends who comes to woolly Wednesday has had breast cancer and at the moment going through a hard time because of the affects of her treatment. We did it to cheer her up. She has posed for the calendar too. We had great fun doing it and have managed to raise awareness because of the publicity. I am sorry for the loss of your friend and can only hope that with enough research lives can be saved.

  48. I am working on row 2 and 3 of Hood. I’m not sure what to do,
    Row 2 (end) ch 2 sps. Turn
    Row 3 ch 3
    Don’t all of these chains run together? ?
    Thank you!

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Its just telling you that the row has a total of (=)27 chain 2 spaces. And that you will turn at the end of row 2… Row 3 you are just starting with a chain 3 and that counts as a double crochet.

  49. This is my third attempt at writing to you. The boxes should signify what is required to be filled in. Thank you for the free patterns. Amazing Grace means a lot to me as my Mum’s name is Grace and my Dad (now passed almost 2 years) used to call her Amazing Grace and is very significant to me. She has also had cancer in the mouth for 16 years and now has it in the jaw bone but it has not spread anywhere else.

  50. Sarah Proudfit

    I like this pattern a lot. I got the cowl done all right, I think. But the hood part (I have frogged twice already) seems to look crooked? I have the right number of shells, but it seems to be losing on one end and gaining on the other?

  51. Hello, Is there anyway to print the free pattern? It is beautiful and I’d like to try it! I’m a newbie and I tried to print the dishcloth patterns too for the knit along on Ravelry , but couldn’t print them efficiently. Thanks so much.

  52. Thank you for the Feature!!!!

  53. Hello you pattern is amazing to me, I have a question do you post on the pattern different sizes I didn see any I want to make this for adults and girls and another question is there a way I can make the cow part a little wider if so how do I do that Please

  54. Beatrice Ryan Designs

    This pattern is one size fits most. To make the cowl wider you can repeat rows 3 & 4 as many times as you like.
