“Professional Auntie” Goes Baby Crochet Crazy!

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 19th, 2014 1 Comment

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!

The dress can easily be made as long or as short as desired. The lace pattern is made up of shells and V-stitches to make a striping effect. Ribbon is used for the straps, but the straps can also be crocheted if desired. The thread used in this pattern creates a thin fabric which is great for layering or wearing as-is on a warm day.

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 6 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.

Crocheting covers for your phone is an excellent way to protect it while personalizing it.

Working with this stitch pattern is fun and adds its own element of personalization. Choose to crochet it in as many colors as you like, it’s up to you.

By Candace – August 7th, 2014 Be the first to comment
For those who want to add a bit of avian flair to a project, try this bird silhouette applique. It is easy to make and in no time you can have a nice-sized flock to adorn bags, blankets, sweaters, hats, and anything else you would like to decorate. The bird is made all in one piece, so the only sewing you have to do is when attaching the applique to a project. crochet_bird_applique
