Crochet Pattern: Easy Pen Case

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 27th, 2015 by Candace – 4 Comments
It takes almost no time for my purse to become a complete mess, and perhaps the greatest tragedy is that my pens become nearly impossible to find. My best bet? Keeping them all together in an easy-to-grab case. The yarn is held triple, giving the case bulk and color. If you’re like me, this small step in purse organization can be a great help. crochet_pen_case

Most girls have grown up playing “dress-up”, and young girls usually always love to accessorize. The fact that some girls never grow out of it is beside the point. Making this belt with its French knot accents and tassels will delight almost any young girl. And if she decides she wants to make it herself, the pattern is easy to understand and takes little time to complete. If you are not familiar with making French knots, a quick internet search reveals how simple the technique really is. Let me know what you think. And in the meantime, enjoy! Polka Dot Accent Belt

Anytime I think “woodland”, mushrooms are sure to follow. There is such a variety, with each one unique to the other. They are truly fascinating pieces of creation! And so, adding to the Woodland Tree Appliqué and my various hedgehog appliqués (Hedgerly and Trundle the hedgehogs), include this mushroom pattern to your woodland stock for a complete picture! As with most appliqués, this one was designed using the basics of crochet and works up in a jiffy. Enjoy! Woodland Mushroom Applique

Crochet Pattern: Woodland Tree Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 5th, 2015 by Amy – 4 Comments
Nature is one of God’s beautiful gifts to His children, and those who know how to enjoy it are the happiest. I’m a sucker for beautiful scenery and love the chance to recreate it in an impressionistic style. The design was inspired by a lovely woodland throw given to me recently. This applique is worked in the round with a lovely technique called surface crochet for the branches. Add some leafy accents to finish it off. What will you do with your applique? I had a great time crocheting this and I hope you will too! Woodland Tree 1

Crochet Pattern: Trundle the Hedgehog Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 26th, 2015 by Amy – 2 Comments
For my second hedgehog appliqué I give you Trundle! (If you missed Hedgerly then click the link to check him out.) There are many ways to create simple little animals with basic crochet stitches. For this little guy, you crochet the body row by row by creating a half circle with picots for texture. Add the head and feet to the body with simple slip stitches, and an easy embroidery technique called the French knot for the eye. It’s great fun and you just can’t go wrong choosing hedgehogs!

Crochet Pattern: Starburst Baby Bib

If you’ve ever been around babies you’ll know how important bibs are for keeping their adorable little outfits clean. Handmade bibs are easy to make and so much fun to design. Using cotton insures the durability of the piece and washes really well, two essentials in baby products. This bib ties at the neck with braided straps. Embellish the front with the starburst pattern or choose your own appliqué. It’s sure to make the little one wearing it very happy! Starburst Baby Bib

Hedgehogs are some of the cutest creatures, and though I haven’t yet had the opportunity to get one of my own, I hear they make very good pets. As an old time collector of hedgehog paraphernalia, I thought it was about time Crochet Spot had some of its own. Crochet this adorable hedgehog using a variation of basic stitches for some basic shaping techniques. It’s simple and fun, a perfect element for that woodland blanket, pillow, or you name it!

This sparkly embellishment can be made in a wide variety of ways just by changing the yarn color and beads. It can be used as an applique or as as an element in a piece of jewelry. It’s a great way to use up scrap yarn– make a bunch and use them to make necklaces or garlands or cover a bag or blanket with them. crochet_sparkly_crescent

Even dolls need something to keep them snug and warm when the temperature drops and snow covers the ground. This shrug, with its simple shaping, does the trick. Switching between round and flat crocheting makes an easy open-front shrug. crochet_barbie_shrug

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 31st, 2015 by Rachel Choi – 1 Comment
Here is a coaster pattern that is great for beginners! Instead of a basic square crocheted in rows, this coaster gives you practice crocheting in the round. When crocheted in the round, it allows you to make concentric squares that are noticeable when changing yarn colors! If you need help changing colors, feel free to check out the How to Change Colors in Crochet tutorial. You can vary when you change colors to give each coaster a different look. Crochet a bunch of these coasters to create an entire set. crochet classic square coasters
