PATTERN as PDF – You glow when you’re happy –


You glow when you’re happy PDF pattern. ready to be traced and hooked by you.

In stock (can be backordered)


NOTE: THIS IS A PDF PATTERN THAT YOU WILL PRINT AND TRACE ONTO YOUR BACKING!!! (The pattern on linen is available as a separate listing. )

When I first hooked this personal pattern, I  received many requests to share it.

I’ve originally titled it You glow differently when you’re happy…we know that happiness comes from within but it does glow outwards. We can feel this glow in our own energy and in others around us. More about Elle below.

This pattern, when traced on your backing, measures 10 x 14 inches inches PLUS whatever size border you wish to add to the backing on which you will hook. I encourage you to add a generous 3.5 – 4 inch border all around to make it easier to insert in your hoop or place on your frame to hook. The pattern will print on 2 pages that will need to be joined together before tracing it on your backing.

I’ve hooked this piece several times now and have shared photos of all of them on Facebook and on Instagram (both under the name of Lonely Oak Alpacas). So please do check them out to further inspire you. Use the best yarns and wool cloth you have. Even add silk cloth if you have it. Choose colours that bring light and happiness to you.

Once your piece is completed, simply fold the border to the backside and stitch it in place. (Many videos are available online).

You can choose to hang your finished piece on the wall or turn it into a cushion. You might even want to make a frame for it.


This PDF pattern will be sent to you by email directly after your purchase. You will have to print it and trace it onto your backing (linen, rug warp or burlap).

We also have the pattern already on linen, so be sure to check out that listing if this is something you are looking for.

Be sure your email address is added to your information when you place your order. Remember to check your Junk Mail Folder if you do not see the pattern within 48 hours in your Inbox.

This pattern was designed by myself (Lise Marleau Nesbitt). Please do not share it or sell it to anyone. It’s only fair that you respect this request. They can purchase their own pattern from me.

Please share your completed hooking piece on either Facebook or on Instagram by tagging us at Lonely Oak Alpacas. I would love to see it!

Returns on this purchase will not be accepted for obvious reasons. 

Her name is Elle, she represents the Divine Feminine.


The following has been written by  EMILY TORRES and you can read the whole article HERE

Feminine energy is connected with fertility, but again, it doesn’t need to be reduced to human reproduction. Growth, whether it’s spiritual, physical, or emotional, celebrates a feminine energy in that we give life to something that was not there before.

The divine feminine is the spiritual concept that there exists a feminine counterpart to the patriarchal and masculine worship structures that have long dominated organized religions. The divine feminine extends well beyond one belief system, and instead can be used as a spiritual lens to balance our perspective. 

The feminine and the masculine are not singular and siloed energies—instead, they exist in balance. For example in ancient Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang are a balance between receptive and productive, introspective and extrospective, feminine and masculine. But the two energies depend on one another—note how the symbol doesn’t cut harshly in a straight line down the middle. The black and white shapes swirl into and out of each other in harmony, changing, flowing, and making room for every possible version of balance.
