Crochet Pattern: Beaded Eyewear Retainer

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 30th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – Be the first to comment
With crochet thread and seed beads, this eyewear retainer will keep your glasses handy with personality. The fine chains of crochet hold the straps on the earpiece without the need of rubber to keep them in place. Experimenting with size hook and thread will give you different results, if you prefer a thinner strap. Don’t forget to add more chains if using smaller thread. Enjoy this pattern and let me know your ideas! Beaded Eyewear Retainer

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 20th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
Sometimes the easiest projects are the most enjoyable to make because of their simplicity. This scarf is a great way to show off your favorite chunky yarn, as well as work with a super large hook for a change. The scarf in the picture was made with Hometown USA in colors Washington Denim and Dallas Grey, both wonderful colors from a lovely yarn. For an extra chunky scarf, double the amount of chains. You can also add more chains, and knots, to give it your own personal flair. As always, have fun! Chunky Chain Scarf

Like its predecessor (the Giselle Earrings) this necklace exhibits charm and delicacy on its wearer. Make it in your favorite crochet thread and complement it with your choice of beads. The beauty of this pattern is that it works up quick and easy. If you like, use a little craft glue to stiffen the ends of the thread to prevent fraying after wear. Giselle Necklace1

Crochet Pattern: Medina Dishtowel

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 4th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 2 Comments
If you are somebody that works a lot in the kitchen, by now you know that good absorbent dishtowels are hard to come by. You can search and search and still be unsatisfied. So why not make your own? Choosing a good cotton yarn is the first step. There are many cotton yarns on the market, some which are mixed with other fibers. Cotton is essential for kitchen towels and cloths because of their durability and resistance to fraying. Make as many of these as you might need and never buy another factory-made towel again!

This child’s accessory is simple enough for a child to complete and narrow enough for a regular crochet hook. It is worked widthwise with just a little seaming. If made with cool, absorbent yarn, it also makes a good sweatband. crochet_child_tunisian_band
