Recently I wrote about crochet patterns for dogs. Not to worry, I didn’t forget about our feline friends! I have 3 cats in my house who all love crocheted items. They probably love them even more than my dogs. If you don’t have any kitties at home, you can always crochet for those at your local shelter. There are lots of things you can crochet for cats. Here is a roundup to give you some ideas!

Crochet Pattern: Barely There Scarf

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on April 17th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – 2 Comments

Are you a scarf lover that wants to wear scarves all year around? Winter scarves are easy to find, but no one wants something bulky and hot in the heat of summer. Crochet this scarf to add texture and color to your outfit, without the warmth. It’s so light, airy, and lacy, you’ll barely notice it’s there around your neck. To add just a touch of weight to the scarf, beads are used to create a subtle, fringe-like edging. The length and width of the scarf can be adjusted to be any size that you desire – from a little scarflette to a full size shawl.

Crochet Pattern: Trio Mesh Shawl

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

This shawl is made with three mesh stitch patterns that are very similar, but vary in openness. The stitches work together to create a shawl that is more solid at the top and bottom and more open in the middle. Crochet this shawl for yourself or for a friend. It can be adjusted to be any size that you wish by following the instructions within the pattern to adjust the width and length. This light weight shawl is great for the warmer weather of summer. You can even wear it to the beach as a cover up! The pattern includes a tie strap to secure the shawl in place around your shoulders or wrapped around your waist, however you want to wear it.

Crochet Pattern: V Pendant Necklaces

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on April 3rd, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

This set includes 4 V-shaped pendants to crochet: a solid pendant, a striped pendant, and 2 different lacy pendants. Crochet your very own fashion necklaces with these quick patterns. Each V-shaped pendant is quick to crochet, you’ll have ready to wear necklaces in no time! I love the contrast between the soft look of crochet with the metal of the necklace chain. But if you prefer an all crocheted necklace, feel free to crochet a chain in place of the metal chain. The chain can be made as long or short as you desire. You can also crochet the pendant in different weights of yarn and/or different hook sizes to create a bigger or smaller pendant.

Crochet Pattern: First-Timer Doily

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on March 27th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

Are you ready to crochet your first doily? Here is a pattern just for you! Doilies can be intimidating, but this pattern uses basic crochet stitches and a slightly thicker thread to make a doily that is easy to crochet. Even though the pattern is easy, it doesn’t lack in interesting shaping or lace work. The doily has a classic look that even experienced doily crocheters can enjoy. If you’re having trouble crocheting with thread, feel free to try the pattern with a thicker thread or regular yarn first. Once you are comfortable crocheting with thread, try the doily with thinner weights of thread for an even lacier look.

Crochet Pattern: Lilac Trellis Mandala

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on March 20th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

This crochet pattern was requested by several Crochet Spot readers and even named by one. The Lilac Trellis Mandala would make a beautiful addition to your home decor this spring. Crochet it with light weight yarn as recommended in the pattern to create a doily sized mandala that can be used as a trivet or hot pad. If crocheted with medium/worsted weight yarn, it will turn out even larger, about the size of a placemat. Use thinner yarns to create smaller mandalas if you wish. Feel free to crochet the mandala with 3 or more of your favorite colors to give it a different and unique look. The pattern is not recommended for beginners as it will require frequent color changes, and unique stitchery to create the colorful and intricate look.

Crochet Pattern: Lacy Top Cosmetic Bag

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on March 13th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – 5 Comments

Looking for a cute pouch to hold your makeup? Crochet this bag to store all of your cosmetic goodies or use it as a regular clutch style purse. This bag is designed with a rounded, wide bottom so that it can stand up on its own, but is also flexible enough to lay flat. The stitch pattern is solid with minimal holes between stitches so that small items will not fall out. It is crocheted seamlessly in the round, like a spiral, from the bottom up. No sewing is required, other than the single button. Crochet the body of the bag in a solid color and choose your favorite contrasting color to crochet the lacy flap. Although not required, feel free to line the finished bag if desired.

Crochet Pattern: Doily Rug

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on March 6th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – 2 Comments

I’ve been wanting to crochet a doily rug for quite some time, but could not decide on the material to crochet it with. Factoring in cost, thickness, and availability, it finally hit me that I can simply use the same yarn that I always crochet with! Medium/worst weight yarn is used in this rug pattern. Medium/worst weight yarn is the most popular weight of yarn there is, and can be found in a variety of colors in any store that sells yarn. To achieve the look of bulky stitches, 3 strands of yarn are held together throughout the entire pattern. In just 22 rounds, you’ll have a rug that will show off your crochet skills and make a statement in your house.

Crochet Pattern: Boho Bracelet Set

Posted in Best Crochet Patterns on February 28th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

Inspired by the cords and beads of Bohemian style bracelets, this set is crocheted with tan thread and bright beads of various sizes. These friendship bracelets look great worn by themselves or stacked together. The set includes 3 different bracelet patterns: a bracelet that is crocheted with large beads, a bracelet that is crocheted with small beads, and a bracelet that is crocheted with alternating bead sizes. Each bracelet is crocheted in the round. Previous experience crocheting with beads is not required, as a photo tutorial is included within the pattern. Experience crocheting with thread is recommended, but not required. Finish off the bracelets with a clasp and an extender chain to make the bracelets adjustable. Bracelets can also be adjusted by adding more or less beads if desired.
