Crochet Pattern: Trundle the Hedgehog Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 26th, 2015 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 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!

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

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.

Crochet Pattern: Turban Headband

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 22nd, 2015 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
The turban style headband brings back memories of the old days when women adopted the style as a part of fashion. Though wearing the turban for fashion has existed for centuries, in the 20’s it was reintroduced by a fashion designer with an Eastern flair. Many of us will recall pictures of a later era with women wearing them while working in factories during World War II. This headband is simple and easy to make, perfect for that Lana Turner-inspired outfit. As an added benefit, it will keep a bit of winter chill from your ears. Turban Headband

I really enjoy taking the time to choose a Homespun yarn that perfectly suits the person I am making it for. And with the great variety of colors Homespun has to offer, this can become pleasantly difficult. Give it a try! Classic Homespun Scarf
