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

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.

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.

Crochet Pattern: Chick Pincushion

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 8th, 2016 by Candace – 3 Comments
I’ve been in need of a new pincusion, and wanted to crochet one, but a lot of the available patterns looked too smooshy. I wanted something more solid and came across some foam balls used to make Christmas ornaments and other crafts. Perfect! Now I don’t have to worry about the pincushion possibly being squished and pins coming out the other side. The chick design makes it a fun Easter gift idea from one crafter to another. You can substitute other colors to make a chubby version of another bird. crochet_chick_pincushion
