Crochet Pattern: Sporty Pacifier Holders

By Rachel Choi – June 25th, 2016 Be the first to comment

Pacifier holders are great if you’re always loosing your pacifiers. The end of the pacifier holder that is appliqued with a sport ball is clipped to the baby’s clothing while the other end dangles with a pacifier. These holders can also be used for small toys, not just pacifiers! Pacifiers and toys can easily be removed from the holder so that they can be washed. The pattern includes the pacifier holder pattern that you can crochet in an assortment of colors, and the 4 sport ball appliques: baseball, basketball, football, and soccer ball.

How to Crochet an Edging for your Bullet Journal

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – June 23rd, 2016 Be the first to comment

As I have an interest in virtually all things crafty, I have recently become enamored of bullet journaling. Bullet journaling is a relatively new concept that combines a planner, to-do list, and diary into one volume. I have only been bullet journaling for less than two weeks, but I can say it is a system that works well for me and allows me to incorporate my artsy craftsy side into my daily planning. A big bonus is that it really helps to keep me organized!

It occurred to me that crochet could (and should!) be incorporated into bullet journaling. This tutorial focuses upon crocheting an edging for your bullet journal. For the purposes of this tutorial, I will be using a piece of cardstock cut to 4.75 in (12 cm) x 8.25 (21 cm) because those are the dimensions of my bullet journal.

How to Crochet: Entrelac

By Candace – June 21st, 2016 Be the first to comment

Have you tried our other entrelac tutorials yet? If you have, you’ll find this one a breeze to follow, but even if you haven’t, you should be able to follow along. This method for starting entrelac is a lot like the Tunisian entrelac method, but unlike Tunisian entrelac, this method only works for blocks that have an off number of rows.

Crochet Pattern: Airplane with Runway Scarf

By Rachel Choi – June 19th, 2016 2 Comments

Crochet an airplane for the aviation enthusiast and a runway inspired scarf to match! Image your child zoom around in the air with his or her new airplane and land it on the runway. The scarf is designed to be child sized, but can be easily lengthened for adults by adding more rows. The airplane is crocheted amigurumi style, seamlessly in the round like a spiral. My favorite technique is used to created smooth, neat color changes.

Tunisian Crochet

By Rachel Choi – June 16th, 2016 3 Comments

I’ve always thought of Tunisian crochet as a cross between crocheting and knitting. With Tunisian crochet you can create fabric that is completely different than ordinary crochet. It is a unique technique to learn if you haven’t tried it already. We have a lot of Tunisian crochet tutorials here on Crochet Spot, and in this post I’ll round them up and organize them for you. Use the tutorials below to give Tunisian crochet a try!

How To Crochet: As-You-Go Crochet Entrelac

By Candace – June 14th, 2016 1 Comment

Entrelac is a fun technique to use to create all kinds of projects. While toying around with the technique in my head and on my hook, I found an easy way to start off an entrelac project that eliminates one of my least favorite parts–the long chain. If you’ve been wanting to do a big project like a blanket but dread starting it, this technique will help make things much easier and more palatable.

Crochet Pattern: Panda Purse

By Rachel Choi – June 12th, 2016 3 Comments

Crochet this purse for yourself or for anyone who is a panda lover! How adorable would it be to tote this bag around? It’s a cute purse for adults and kids. The bag is crocheted from the bottom up in one piece, seamlessly in the round like a spiral. Then the strap and the panda’s face is sewn on. The strap can be made as long or short as you desire to create a shoulder bag or a crossbody. Feel free to add you own lining or closures if desired.

Do You Sell Items Made from Crochet Spot Patterns?

By Rachel Choi – June 11th, 2016 Be the first to comment

If you sell crocheted items that are made from any Crochet Spot patterns, I would love to add you to a directory I’m creating. Often times non-crocheters see a Crochet Spot pattern and would like to purchase the finished item. However, I do not always have the time to make the items. If you use Crochet Spot patterns often and even sell the finished items already, I would love to add you to a list I’m creating so that non-crocheters can easily find someone who can crochet a pattern for them.

If you would like to be added to this free directory, please email [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Your full name and business name (if you have one)
  • Link to your online shop (Etsy shop, personal website, Facebook page, etc.) so that folks can see your work
  • Email address, which will appear publicly in the directory
  • 2 – 3 sentences about yourself and/or your crochet work, to be displayed with your information
  • List the CrochetSpot.com patterns that you enjoy crocheting the most. These patterns will be noted so that customers can choose a crocheter that matches their needs.

If you have any questions about this directory, feel free to let me know!

How to Crochet: Invisible Decreases

By Rachel Choi – June 9th, 2016 Be the first to comment

Increasing and decreasing creates shape in your crochet projects, but traditional decrease stitches don’t always blend well and can stick out and be unsightly. The invisible decrease technique can be used with a lot of different stitches. The technique is similar for each stitch.
