Crochet Pattern: String of Shamrocks Garland

By Amy – February 21st, 2017 Be the first to comment

I love a chance to decorate for another holiday. No sooner is one over before I put up decorations for the next. St. Patrick’s Day is coming soon but rarely do I find any decorations in the stores that I really like. As always, I say, make your own! And I do. Here is a lovely strand of little shamrocks just dying to be hung up in your home. The shamrocks are small and can be made in a matter of minutes. Make them in one color or get creative and use a handful of different greens. The garland string is made with two strands of yarn held together and features little circles at both ends for an easier means of hanging. Make nine shamrocks as suggested or make as many as you like!

Leprechaun Hat Crochet Pattern – Updated!

By Rachel Choi – February 19th, 2017 Be the first to comment

The popular Leprechaun Hat crochet pattern has been updated just in time to crochet one (or several) for St. Patrick’s day! The pattern still has the same hat shape and contains 5 sizes: baby, toddler, child, adult (recommended for women), and large adult (recommended for men). The new, updated version of the pattern provides a clearer gauge and adjusts the bottom of the hat so that it fits more snugly around the head. This new version replaces the old pattern, so if you already purchased the pattern, feel free to log into your store account and re-download the pattern and the new version will be provided for free.

Crochet Pattern: Toilet Seat Cover and Contour Rug

By Rachel Choi – February 4th, 2017 2 Comments

This pattern was requested by a Crochet Spot reader!
Crochet a matching toilet seat cover and contour rug. Choose a yarn that is machine washable so that you can easily toss them in the washing machine when needed. The patterns are crocheted with a large crochet hook and 2 strands of medium/worsted weight yarn held together, to achieve a thick fabric. The large crochet hook makes the patterns fairly quick to crochet. Although not required, apply puff paint along the underside of the rug for an added nonslip grip.

Crochet Pattern: Ruffled Flower Face Cloth

By Candace – February 2nd, 2017 Be the first to comment
A good face cloth is something nice to add to a cleansing and beauty routine, especially one with texture and eye-catching color. Use your favorite soft and thick (and shrinkproof) yarn and treat your skin. The flower also works as a big and bold accent on hats, bags, and other projects.
Don’t forget your stitch marker! This pattern is worked in a spiral.
