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 – 5 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

Crochet Pattern: Frilled Doll Apron

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 25th, 2015 by Amy – 1 Comment
Do you remember those lovely, untouchable dolls? The ones with the tight curls, powdered cheeks, bright eyes, and old-fashioned wardrobe? I received my very own porcelain doll as a gift one year and on occasion I couldn’t resist taking her out to straighten her hair or dress. What attracted me most to these delicate dolls was their old-fashioned outfits made of satin and lace frills. This dolls apron brings back the old days where an apron was a must for cooking and cleaning of any kind. Made with light weight yarn and using simple crochet techniques, you can work this apron up in a jiffy. Frilly Doll Apron

Crochet Pattern: Dish Soap Apron

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 18th, 2015 by Amy – 2 Comments
Here is a crochet pattern requested by a Crochet Spot reader! Why should crocheting for the kitchen stop with towels and wash rags? Customize your soap bottles too! This dish soap apron is rather simple and easy to make. I used a cotton yarn, which is always a good idea for the kitchen, and began with some simple designs. If your favorite kitchen soap happens to be a little shorter than this one, simply leave off a few rows at the beginning. I hope you enjoy it! Dish Soap Apron

Crochet Pattern: Doll Basket

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 10th, 2015 by Amy – 3 Comments
Sometimes the most enjoyable things to make are the ones that only take a few minutes. Then again, it might be simply because they are often small projects. After crocheting an extensive pattern it’s helpful to come back to the little things. It’s refreshing and re-inspiring! This doll basket can easily be paired with any outfit, but I suggest would make a good addition to the Doll Peasant Dress just recently posted. It only takes a minute to make using basic crochet techniques. I hope you like it as much as I do! Doll Basket

Crochet keychains are great to have around because they are so lightweight. While this keychain isn’t very big (about the size of an alarm fob), it can be made in bright, eye-catching colors to make it easy to find. This keychain is quick and easy to make if you have the hang of Tunisian entrelac. crochet_entrelac_keychain

Flowers are some of the most popular pieces of nature to mimic or recreate. There are many crochet patterns for flowers or involving them. Here on Crochet Spot alone the list is quite extensive.

This simple flower necklace will add the perfect accent to any outfit. Each flower has four petals made in one easy round.

Crochet Pattern: Vintage Tiara Headband

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on May 15th, 2015 by Amy – 3 Comments
Quite a few decades ago a person wouldn’t walk out of the house without a hat — man, woman, or child. Hair pieces for women were plentiful and varied, worn when going out or at home. Barrettes, tiaras, headbands, clips of every sort. It’s a lost era, I’m sorry to say. But who says we can’t bring it back! This tiara-style headband is fashioned after the hair pieces of the early 1900’s. Women wore their hair wavy and put up neatly with accessories like this one. Now you can make your own; it’s terribly simple and very glamorous! Vintage Tiara Headband
