Crochet Pattern: Thermos Cozy

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on May 10th, 2016 by Candace – Be the first to comment
I have a nice steel thermos with a sleeve that had a small carrying strap. That sleeve seemed like it would be useful until the first time I used it, and my thermos full of tea slipped out of the sleeve and clattered to the ground. Since then, I’ve been meaning to make a cozy with a bottom for it.

This cozy is easy and quick to make and will make carrying your drinks (or soup) easy as pie.

Crochet Pattern: Tasseled Mug Rug

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on May 5th, 2016 by Caissa "Cami" McClinton – 4 Comments
What’s a mug rug? It’s bigger than a coaster, and smaller than a placemat. While sitting on your desk or side table, it can accommodate your cup and also a small snack. Mug rugs show their beauty even while being used. For these reasons, I knew I had to make a mug rug. The pattern is easy and addictive. Soon you’ll be making mug rugs in many different color combinations. Crochet a Mug Rug Free Pattern by Caissa McClinton @artlikebread for @crochetspot

Crochet Pattern: Tunisian Check Scrubbie

It can be hard to find a project for variegated yarns with short color repeats, so sometimes it’s best to think small and simple. A square scrubbie with a checkerboard pattern fits the bill quite nicely. This pattern requires some knowledge of Tunisian crochet. Be sure to use the chart linked below to brush up on abbreviations if you need it. crochet_tunisian_square_scrubbie

Crochet Pattern: Bit of Honey Earrings

Are you looking for a good accessory to go with your spring and summer wardrobe? How about a pair of earrings that look like honeycombs? You can make them in yellow and on the theme of buzzing bees out to gather something sweet. Or you can play with thread and bead colors for a unique look that’s all yours. Either way, crocheting a pair of these is much safer than bothering a real honeycomb! crochet_bit_of_honey_earrings

Crochet Pattern: Lover’s Knot Flower Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on April 21st, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment
This lovely, little flower applique uses the Lover’s Knot stitch (a.k.a. Love Knot, Solomon’s Knot, or simply Knot Stitch). The Lover’s Knot stitch is simple and lacy, which I love to use for clothing patterns to achieve nice drape. Never did I think I would use it for an applique, but it works very well to give the flower light and lacy petals. If you aren’t familiar with the Lover’s Knot stitch, please see the Lover’s Knot stitch tutorial before getting started. Crocheted in only 2 rounds, the flower is quick and easy to crochet. Crochet a few flowers and attach them to a headband or hat, or add pins to the backs and use them as brooches. crochet flower applique

Spring is certainly dragging its feet where I live, so a scarf is still handy to have around. This skinny scarf isn’t too bulky, and is perfect for wrapping around your neck on cool mornings and evenings and wearing draped over your shoulders for the rest of the day.

If you are familiar with Tunisian crochet, it’s a great TV project. If you are not familiar with it, take a look at some of our Tunisian crochet tutorials, including How to Crochet :Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS) and How to Crochet: Tunisian Increase at the Beginning of a Row before you start.

If you want to try your hand at stitching with multiple beads, this simple pouch is a great place to start. The beads on the front of the pouch create stripes that add weight and need no color changes–great for people who don’t like weaving in ends.
Use the bag to hold your tiny treasures or as a gift bag for jewelry and other small items. Or you can line it and keep your notions–like yarn needles–in it.
