Crochet Pattern: Blanket Stitch Baby Hat

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 1st, 2017 by Rachel Choi – 2 Comments

Requested by a Crochet Spot reader, this hat pattern was designed to match the Blanket Stitch pattern. Crochet a blanket and a matching hat to create a wonderful gift set! The hat is crocheted in the round from the top down. It starts with double crochet stitches, then transitions to the blanket stitch pattern. The hat will fit most babies. If you are interested in other sizes, please let me know in the comments section and I can work on putting together more patterns.

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.
