Crochet Pattern: Frilled Doll Apron

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 25th, 2015 by Amy – 1 Comment
Do you remember those lovely, untouchable dolls? The ones with the tight curls, powdered cheeks, bright eyes, and old-fashioned wardrobe? I received my very own porcelain doll as a gift one year and on occasion I couldn’t resist taking her out to straighten her hair or dress. What attracted me most to these delicate dolls was their old-fashioned outfits made of satin and lace frills. This dolls apron brings back the old days where an apron was a must for cooking and cleaning of any kind. Made with light weight yarn and using simple crochet techniques, you can work this apron up in a jiffy. Frilly Doll Apron

Crochet Pattern: Dish Soap Apron

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 18th, 2015 by Amy – 8 Comments
Here is a crochet pattern requested by a Crochet Spot reader! Why should crocheting for the kitchen stop with towels and wash rags? Customize your soap bottles too! This dish soap apron is rather simple and easy to make. I used a cotton yarn, which is always a good idea for the kitchen, and began with some simple designs. If your favorite kitchen soap happens to be a little shorter than this one, simply leave off a few rows at the beginning. I hope you enjoy it! Dish Soap Apron

Crochet Pattern: Doll Basket

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 10th, 2015 by Amy – 3 Comments
Sometimes the most enjoyable things to make are the ones that only take a few minutes. Then again, it might be simply because they are often small projects. After crocheting an extensive pattern it’s helpful to come back to the little things. It’s refreshing and re-inspiring! This doll basket can easily be paired with any outfit, but I suggest would make a good addition to the Doll Peasant Dress just recently posted. It only takes a minute to make using basic crochet techniques. I hope you like it as much as I do! Doll Basket

Crochet Pattern: Vintage Tiara Headband

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on May 15th, 2015 by Amy – 3 Comments
Quite a few decades ago a person wouldn’t walk out of the house without a hat — man, woman, or child. Hair pieces for women were plentiful and varied, worn when going out or at home. Barrettes, tiaras, headbands, clips of every sort. It’s a lost era, I’m sorry to say. But who says we can’t bring it back! This tiara-style headband is fashioned after the hair pieces of the early 1900’s. Women wore their hair wavy and put up neatly with accessories like this one. Now you can make your own; it’s terribly simple and very glamorous! Vintage Tiara Headband

Crochet Pattern: Démodé Summer Cowl

–Pattern has been corrected!–
When the weather begins to grow warm you might hesitate to wear some of your crocheted accessories. The answer? Crochet lacier projects and you won’t have to sacrifice your style. This cool summer cowl has an antique lace look, hence the French name for “old-fashioned”. But contrary to some belief, lacy doesn’t have to mean more difficult. The stitch pattern is fairly simple, and with a lovely variegated yarn, will present just the right amount of character. Wear it with any summer outfit for the perfect look!

The border on this bracelet is textured with a very ordinary stitch while the middle sports shells and clusters.
