If you like to play with color, these earrings are great for experimenting with combinations. Two squares in one are made by adding another color along two edges of the first. They are a good way to use up any scraps you may have in your stash that are looking for a project. crochet_corner_square_earrings

“Professional Auntie” Goes Baby Crochet Crazy!

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 19th, 2014 3 Comments

I am a “professional auntie!” This means I have a huge number of nieces and nephews (at least a Baker’s Dozen), and I’m not actually related to any of them! It’s great being a professional auntie who crochets because if I ever feel the need to impulse crochet something cuter than cute I have an instant reason to do so!

Look!  I found a baby-friend!

Crochet Pattern: Child’s Tunisian Cuff

By Candace – August 16th, 2014 Be the first to comment
This child’s accessory is simple enough for a child to complete and narrow enough for a regular crochet hook. It is worked widthwise with just a little seaming. If made with cool, absorbent yarn, it also makes a good sweatband. crochet_child_tunisian_band

Crochet Pattern: Sailboat Appliqué

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – August 14th, 2014 4 Comments
Unlike most girls, I have always loved a nautical theme. I decided early on in my life that I would learn as much about the world of water and man’s history on it as I could. And though some children may grow out of this interest, almost all love the adventure the sea promises. Whether you are designing a nursery or a simple blanket or piece of clothing, choose between this and some of Crochet Spot’s other nautical and marine inspired appliqués as well: the Anchor Appliqué, the Fish Appliqué. and the Something’s Fishy Appliqué!

Yes, This IS Your Grandmother’s Crochet! (Because Grannies are COOL!)

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 12th, 2014 7 Comments

Yeah, I said it! I love granny squares and with a granny square there is almost nothing you can not do! People sometimes say, ‘This isn’t your grandmother’s crochet.’ I know what they mean by that. They are trying to get at the idea that crochet is fresh, hip, and fun. But who said that grannies aren’t all of those things? I think it depends upon the person! Let’s talk about grannies!

My grandmother was a really interesting and cool person for all of her years. She was someone who, while keeping her foundation firmly implanted, kept moving forward, learning, growing, and changing with the times. I learned perseverance from her and she served as a strong role model. Through her example I know that we never have to stop changing, and never have to stop growing.
