Crochet Pattern: Tall Ice Cream Cone Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 6th, 2016 by Caissa "Cami" McClinton – Be the first to comment
Ever since I attended a craft party for the charity Sole Hope, I have been thinking about crafting with denim in new ways. During the party, we cut up old jeans into pieces to make shoes for children who need them. Thinking of old jeans as a textile, I began imagining painted denim canvases and tote bags. And a denim tote bag would look great with a crochet applique like this one on it!

Crochet Pattern: Tunisian Eyelet Cowl

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 25th, 2016 by Candace – 2 Comments
Talk about yummy and squishy! Tunisian crochet just seems to give the right amount of squishy bulk for winter projects. Take this cowl with its simple eyelet pattern. Made with a ball of DK weight yarn, it has a thickness that belies the yarn weight.
The cowl is a quick project for those familiar with Tunisian crochet and my Tunisian crochet in the round technique. (If your afghan hooks don’t have cords, you can work it flat and seam it together.) Remember to block after finishing to open the eyelets up.

Here’s a pattern that’s great for both simple and busy colorways. If you’re like me and love the speckled colorways that are popular now, you’ve been looking for the perfect pattern to use it on. Such a busy yarn would swallow anything too complicated, so keep it simple with alternating ridges. The hat has a slightly slouchy fit that can be adjusted by adding to or subtracting from the the height of the plain double crochet section. crochet_lackdaisy_hat

Crochet Pattern: Happy Links Necklace and Bracelet

I bought a bag of beautiful embroidery floss from the craft store and I have been loving the experimentation process. How can I combine different strands to achieve a different look? Since embroidery floss will always remind me of friendship bracelets, I wanted to make a chunky bangle to keep or give to a friend. I had so much fun with the technique that I kept going! The end result was a jewelry piece that could be used as a necklace or bracelet, featuring links that are perfect for attaching charms. Fun for adults, and kids, too!
