Crochet Pattern: Keychain Card Holder

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 13th, 2014 by Candace – 3 Comments
I have a bunch of mini cards on my keyrings from grocery stores, drugstores, the library–you name it. Over time, some of them have gotten a lot of wear, so to protect them and keep my newer ones from meeting the same fate, I made a little sleeve to keep them in. Not only does it protect cards, but it also keeps keyrings looking a bit neater. crochet_keychain_card_holder

Crochet Pattern: Expanding Diamond Motif

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 7th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 4 Comments
Recently I have written a couple of posts on making expandable geometric motifs, the Expanding Pentagon Motif, and the Expanding Geometric Motif Crochet Tutorial, where each shape follows a similar design. Unfortunately, not all shapes can be created so simply. My method is based on the amount of identical sides a shape has. But in the case of a diamond, for example, there are the same number of sides as a square but all sides are not identical. Expanding Diamond Motif

After reading a comment by a reader requesting help while using my tutorial to make a rhombus, or diamond, I set about making the necessary changes. So here is a pattern in the same expanding design but for a more unique shape!

Crochet Pattern: The Polly Belt

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 26th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
After watching an episode of Mission: Impossibe (the 60′s TV series) I saw a lovely lemon yellow belt paired with a navy blue suit and matching yellow pumps. My fashion interest was piqued. I set about making a similar belt pattern, complete with lemon yellow yarn. And now you can too!
Belts are all the rage these days because they highlight nearly any outfit. The best thing about them though is that they are incredibly simple to make. All you need is some yarn, a crochet hook, and a belt buckle, and you can whip one of these up in no time!

I recently realized that I don’t have many rectangular bookmarks. The easiest way to change that was to take out my thread and hook and work one up. Beginning crocheters who want to try fine yarns and small hooks can use this easy pattern to get comfortable with fine-gauge work. crochet_easy_bookmark

Have you ever tried crocheting a project with motifs of shapes other than squares? It can be challenging, especially when you’re not following an already made pattern. But it’s also a lot of fun. Here’s an elegant but simple pentagon motif that is very versatile. Choose to make it smaller by crocheting less rounds, or larger by following the same increasing method, whichever best suits your project. Expanding Pentagon Motif

Crochet Pattern: Patriotic Flag

To those of us who live in the United States of America, the three colors that make up our flag is the essence of patriotism. When Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag, little did she know the effect it would have on her growing country. And yet it’s hard not to take it all for granted. During these summer patriotic holidays let’s try to keep in mind how blessed we are to be Americans! Patriotic Flag
