As a little girl, one of the first cloth quilting patterns Granny Smith introduced me to was the Yo-Yo. It took forever to cut out all those circles, and even longer to run a basting stitch around them. Then you had to iron them flat and sew them together. I noticed one of the designers options was making these YoYos into a bedspread. I can guarantee it wont take nearly as long as that pieced cloth version.

I just downloaded it from this link, so it may be a program issue for those of you who can't get to it. OR they've fixed it so it will print. What a wonderful cute way to use some scraps! and I like how versatile the size will be. I think I will throw some scraps in my purse and start make the little yo-yos.

Found it on Ravelry. Search Chris Simon for all her patterns. Easy to print from there.

I would really love this pattern. But it will not allow me to print it. Is it somewhere else?

since i did not get the legible pattern and then only part of the pattern I have been unable to attempt the pattern. When i tried to print the pattern out all i got was the blog and a picture of the yo yo square. Did I do something wrong?

well, I've looked and looked for the pattern itself but so far have not been able to find it. I saved it and then looked for it in my list of saved patterns and I still don't find a pattern. I have the picture and it is really cute..but where is the pattern itself. It looks simple enough but I really would like to see a printed pattern.

I inherited four lawn and leaf bags of little balls of yarn when my Mother passed away. Now I know what I can do with the scraps - this is something good for travel. I also got 7 lawn and leaf bags of yarn which went to a group who makes blankets for children in the cancer ward. She had over 200 pairs of knitting needles and a gallon ziploc of brand new crochet hooks - never used. My yarn friends had so much fun helping me sort. We have a group of people at work who sit and knit or crochet on Wednesdays at lunch. I'm going to show them this pattern! Thanks!

I made all the yo-yos but have never been able to do the continuous joining, they are still sitting in my closet!

This is so good to use up my scraps that I have been collecting over the last few months. Thank you.

what do you mean by sk and sc

sk is skip and sc is single crochet

I think this is a wonderful idea. Kinda a collector of memories of all your other crochet projects.

I guess I'm missing something ... I don't see the pattern that was adapted from Priscilla Hewitt's flat braid joining to the yo yo's. :(

This looks great.....I have always stayed away from yo-yo's because I didn't want to have to join all of them. I appreciate your time in sharing this with us. Love the king size one you made also.

Very pretty and delicate looking. Thanks for sharing.

I love this pattern! Now I can clean out my closet and use it for clothes now, instead of yarn!!! LOL

Awesome Pattern ! Thank you for sharing it here with us ! I started mine last evening... I am already up to 100 yo yo's . I want to get a good mix of colors made up then start joining them... I know it will be so beautiful ! Making this as one of my sons requested Wedding Presents... Both he and his future wife love the idea as well... Thank you again !

Fantastic, but I can't access the pattern!
