I know it might seem early, but trust me, back to school is right around the corner. A friend of mine has kids that start school on August 10th! Seriously! So I thought I would post this round up of fantastic crochet patterns for back to school! Since these are all relatively small, you have plenty of time to whip something up before the kids head off to school again this year.

Crochet Pattern: Striped Eyelet Wrap Sweater

By Rachel Choi – July 25th, 2015 Be the first to comment
This is an easy pattern that creates a sweater by wrapping a single, long, rectangular wrap around your body. The stitch pattern used to create the wrap is one of my favorites. Alternating between solid rows and mesh rows, the fabric created is a great combination of being lacy and solid, so that it drapes easily. A photo tutorial is included for wrapping the wrap around the body to create the sweater look. This wrap sweater can be made to fit any body shape and size! Feel free to use any weight of yarn you desire, to create a thick or thin sweater.

Hairpin Crochet Lace for Summer

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – July 21st, 2015 3 Comments

Man, it is hot up here in the northern hemisphere! Summer is truly upon us and I’ve seen some lacy clothing come out of storage and have a day in the sun. Summer is perfect for crochet and it seems that each year, every season, I see more and more crochet in stores, online, and on the runway. Hairpin lace is a classic crochet technique that people may not know is crochet. It was originally crocheted using a lady’s hairpin as a loom. As I researched for this essay, I became fascinated with the history of hairpin lace.

Crochet Pattern: Nautical Coaster Set

By Amy – July 18th, 2015 Be the first to comment
Years ago I visited a home where the living room was decorated with a nautical theme. Being a nautical enthusiast and self-proclaimed maritime expert, I would do the same to my own room given half the chance. Coasters are necessities for protecting furniture from the inevitable danger posed by cups of liquids. Here are four nautical themed patterns for coasters. A ship’s wheel, coiled rope, a compass, and a sail, all quick to make and the best of fun. I’d love to know what you think! Nautical Coasters Set

Crochet Pattern: Pineapple Upside-Down Earrings

By Candace – July 16th, 2015 2 Comments
These earrings may not be the traditional Fibonacci-based crochet pineapples, but looking at the finished project made me crave fruit. They’re a quick and fun project you can do in many “flavors” of yarn and beads. The number of beads give the earrings some weight, but they’re still quite light and easy to wear. crochet_pineapple_upside-down_earrings

Willow Yarns Daily DK Review

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – July 14th, 2015 4 Comments

Isn’t it exciting to find a new product or company that you just love? Well, that’s how I feel about Willow Yarns. The company is new to me, but what a wonderful product they have to offer. I don’t even remember how I heard about them, but I am glad that I did because they just provide another affordable option for getting good yarns. And what I love about their website is that they give free shipping on orders larger than $50, so if it is time to stock up, they are a good option.

This pattern set includes 3 skinny scarves with unique eyelet patterns: offset eyelets, striped eyelets and diamond eyelets. Each scarf is designed to be only 3″ wide to create a narrow scarf that is great for warm summer or spring weather.

Crochet Pattern: Doll Pioneer Bonnet

By Amy – July 9th, 2015 5 Comments
Are you one of those people that have always loved the pioneer lifestyle – bonnets, stretches of prairie, covered wagons, cooking over a campfire, and sleeping under the stars? Maybe you’re not. Maybe the pioneer life sounds hard, dusty and just plain exhausting. You’d probably be right but who can deny the adventurer inside? Braving the unknown, starting anew, living off the land. It’s fun to think about any way. But there doesn’t have to be any “braving the unknown” with this doll’s bonnet. It’s easy and works up quickly. Add it to the rest of the crocheted doll clothing repertoire! Doll Pioneer Bonnet
