Crochet Pattern: Sailboat Appliqué

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 14th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 4 Comments
Unlike most girls, I have always loved a nautical theme. I decided early on in my life that I would learn as much about the world of water and man’s history on it as I could. And though some children may grow out of this interest, almost all love the adventure the sea promises. Whether you are designing a nursery or a simple blanket or piece of clothing, choose between this and some of Crochet Spot’s other nautical and marine inspired appliqués as well: the Anchor Appliqué, the Fish Appliqué. and the Something’s Fishy Appliqué!

Crochet Pattern: A Rose for a Ring

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 31st, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 2 Comments
One of the most enjoyable things to crochet is jewelry! Rings, earrings, necklace pendants, and brooches, all with the artistic flare yarn or thread naturally gives. Making your own jewelry says a lot and lends something noticeable to your appearance. To make this rose you begin with a strip of crocheted fabric and wind it around itself to resemble a rose. Then you simply sew it together from the bottom. Visit this page to see an example: How to Roll Up a Crocheted Rose. You can use this tiny rose on anything. Here’s a tip: for a tiny rose, try size 10 crochet thread! Rose Ring

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!

Crochet Pattern: Easy Bookmark

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 19th, 2014 by Candace – Be the first to comment
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
