Crochet Pattern: Alora Earrings

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 1st, 2015 by Candace – Be the first to comment
This pair of crochet earrings is as fun to wear as they are to make. The chain lace is simple yet pretty, and it’s quick to make. The open shape gives you a variety of options when it comes to how to wear them. Place your earwires in different parts of the earring and orient them differently to see how the look changes. For a popular style, try adding a chain to the open ends and dangling them lace side down. crochet_alora_earrings

Crochet Pattern: Rugged Coffeemaker Cozy

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 29th, 2015 by Amy – 2 Comments
Are you familiar with Chemex coffee makers? Years ago, our coffee maker died and we set out to find something better. We have been making coffee with a Chemex for a few years now and we agree that it is the best way to make coffee. All it takes is a kettle for warming water and Chemex filters and you have coffee in minutes. Because of its simplistic style I was inspired to make an easy cozy with pure cotton yarn. Let me know what you think! (Note: depending upon yarn thickness/fiber, temperature of coffee, quantity in pot, etc, cozy may not prevent you from burning yourself). Rugged Chemex Cozy

Crochet Pattern: Susie Bear Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 20th, 2015 by Amy – 4 Comments
Bears are some of the most popular animals to emulate. The “teddy bear” was first created in the 20th century when a cartoonist depicted an incident with President Theodore Roosevelt and an American Black Bear. Since then, stuffed bears have changed in design greatly, but they are still the epitome of a stuffed toy. This latest design follows in others footsteps. It is a bear applique made with easy crochet stitches in a simple design. The embellishments that create the bears features are made up of the easiest embroidery stitches. Cut out a flower from felt, or choose your own hairpiece, for the finishing touch. Susie Bear Applique

Crochet Pattern: Hedgehog Potholder

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 13th, 2015 by Amy – 2 Comments
If I’ve said it once… I’ll have to say it again. Hedgehogs are too cute! Their rotund bodies, spiky fur, and little pointy noses all add up to one adorable creature. Recently I was shopping at a craft store, and while browsing the fall decorations, I found many great hedgehog things. It seems this year, hedgehogs are in! So I’ve added my own special project to the mix. This potholder is made using fairly simple instructions and basic crochet techniques. Hang it on your wall for decoration, use it in your kitchen, or give it to a friend. Be sure to let me know what you think! Hedgehog Potholder

Crochet Pattern: Pineapple Upside-Down Earrings

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 16th, 2015 by Candace – 2 Comments
These earrings may not be the traditional Fibonacci-based crochet pineapples, but looking at the finished project made me crave fruit. They’re a quick and fun project you can do in many “flavors” of yarn and beads. The number of beads give the earrings some weight, but they’re still quite light and easy to wear. crochet_pineapple_upside-down_earrings

Crochet Pattern: Doll Pioneer Bonnet

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 9th, 2015 by Amy – 6 Comments
Are you one of those people that have always loved the pioneer lifestyle – bonnets, stretches of prairie, covered wagons, cooking over a campfire, and sleeping under the stars? Maybe you’re not. Maybe the pioneer life sounds hard, dusty and just plain exhausting. You’d probably be right but who can deny the adventurer inside? Braving the unknown, starting anew, living off the land. It’s fun to think about any way. But there doesn’t have to be any “braving the unknown” with this doll’s bonnet. It’s easy and works up quickly. Add it to the rest of the crocheted doll clothing repertoire! Doll Pioneer Bonnet

Crochet Pattern: Jungle Rhythm Baby Blanket

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 2nd, 2015 by Amy – 5 Comments
Designing a new baby blanket is a lot of fun. I like to customize them specifically for the little one that is going to receive it. I created this one with my little niece in mind — bright colors to catch her eye, soft to the touch but with lots of texture. Normally, I design them in neutral colors in case the mother would like to use it for multiple children, or if the parents do not yet know the gender of the child. Whichever you choose to do, I hope you enjoy making this blanket. I can guarantee the recipient of yours will be just as pleased as my niece will be with the one I made! Jungle Rhythm Baby Blanket
