Crochet Pattern: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on January 14th, 2017 by Rachel Choi – 1 Comment

Who can resist chocolate covered strawberries, especially if they are zero calories! Crochet a bunch of strawberries as a gift, as play food for children, or as decoration for your home. Each strawberry is crocheted seamlessly in the round with a special technique for a smooth color change. Make a variety of strawberries with brown yarn for milk chocolate, white yarn for white chocolate, or even all red for no chocolate at all. Embroider designs onto the strawberries if you’re feeling ambitious.

Crochet Pattern: Solid Granny Square Blanket

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on January 8th, 2017 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

This crochet pattern was requested by a Crochet Spot reader!
Here is a granny square pattern that gives you the classic granny square look, but without the extremely large holes and gaps between stitches. This pattern creates a more solid fabric since it does not use chain spaces like a traditional granny square blanket. Although the blanket isn’t completely solid, it is more suitable for babies and kids since the “holes” are much smaller. The blanket is crocheted in the round from the center out. It is designed as one giant square that will not warp or distort in shape like a lot of other patterns that are crocheted in the round. Easily customize the blanket to be any size desired by crocheting more or less rounds. As a bonus, the pattern includes a step-by-step photo tutorial.

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on December 17th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – 1 Comment

This crochet pattern was requested by a Crochet Spot reader!
This hat is designed for the messy buns and the high ponytails. No need to squish your hair when you wear hats, let it stick out the top. Each hat size is crocheted with an elastic opening so that it stretches easily over the hair and doesn’t leave a large gap between hair and hat. A tutorial for crocheting with the elastic is included. This pattern comes in 5 sizes, ranging from baby (if they’re blessed with lots of hair!) to adults, so that everyone in the family can have one!

Crochet Pattern: Cozy Keyhole Scarf

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on December 10th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

Forget traditional scarves when you can wear a keyhole scarf! This scarf has a small hole strategically placed that allows you to pull the end of the scarf through to secure it around your neck. You don’t have to worry about knotting the scarf or wrapping the scarf around your neck multiple times and having it unravel. Keyhole scarves also use less yarn than traditional scarves, making them less bulky to wear and quicker to crochet.
