It’s chilly, but you don’t want to deal with the ends of a scarf or you don’t have enough time to make one. Keep away the cold and your worries with this neckwarmer. It’s big enough to get over your head, so it’s not too snug to be comfortable on your neck. It’s perfect for a fall day, and autumn is almost here. This pattern uses post stitches to make the ridged pattern. It is crocheted flat and then sewn together. Crochet Ridged Chevron Neckwarmer

Summer’s almost gone, so it’s time to think about keeping warm. What better place to start than right at the top? The flaps on this hat will keep your ears as toasty as your head while you enjoy the cooler weather. Wear this while you admire the changing colors of the leaves–or jump in them!

This is a no-sew project, so finishing should be a cool fall breeze.

Crochet Pattern: Miss Mouse Cat Toy

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 14th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
I have two cats at home who are crazy about catnip. I’ve made felt cat toys in the past and filled them with my kitten’s herb of choice, much to their pleasure. I’m away from home on a business trip now and so in a fit of homesickness I crocheted this mouse for my comedic kitties, Crazy and Maggie. I know they will have as much fun with this as I did making it. I can’t wait to watch them! This mouse is jumbo sized for a heaping helping of catnip, but you could also use this as a child’s toy (minus catnip). If you want, you could add beads for eyes too!

Crochet Pattern: Book Cover

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 9th, 2011 by Claire Ortega-Reyes – 9 Comments
Nowadays, when people say “notebook” they mean a portable computing device. I miss those days when I lived for school-supplies-shopping and got brand-new notebooks, pencils and pens. If I had known how to crochet way back then, I would have wanted to cover all my books and notebooks with a crocheted cover!

This pattern is for a notebook or book cover done in medium weight yarn, and is crocheted all in one go from end to end. It is written for a book 8 inches tall, but the pattern is easily adjusted to accommodate any size. Make this cover for books, notebooks, journals, or scrapbooks–add a decorative touch to the plain covers, to give it a little personality.

Crochet Pattern: Sandman Aromatherapy Pillow

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 8th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 8 Comments
I love essential oils and learning more about aromatherapy. Occasionally I like to put a little essential oil on my pillowcase before drifting off to dreamland. Since I travel so much, and don’t want to drag my scented pillow along with me, I decided to whip up this pattern. Simply slide the mini “pillow” inside your pillowcase before hitting the hay. The felt inside the crocheted enclosure will keep your essential oil’s fragrance for days. These little pillows, lightly scented with lavender, also work great in the pockets of wool coats in storage to keep moths away!

Crochet Pattern: Simple Pouch

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 7th, 2011 by Candace – 6 Comments
This pattern is great for beginners who want to practice but still make something. You can practice three of the most common stitches, single, double, and half-double crochet. After you complete these short rows, fold it, sew it, and you now have a functional pouch for pens, crafting supplies, or whatever else you need to store.

It is also a good quick project for non-beginners; its frequent stitch variation should keep you interested until the end.

Spa products are typically pricey-but in reality you can make your own! One of my favorites are soap savers. They actually save you money by making the most of soap bars, make sure your soap doesn’t jump out of your hands, and also give you extra exfoliation. The great news is, they are easy to make! Rachel has already shared some fantastic patterns: 5 Simple Soap Savers and Absolutely Easy Soap Saver. These patterns use medium weight yarn; and so I decided to try my hand on a thread version.

Crochet Pattern: Bookworm Bookmark

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 24th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 11 Comments
It’s hard to believe that summer is winding down. Since it’s back to school time, I thought a bookmark would be the perfect project. This little bookworm will keep your place in the latest read or textbook. You can make him as short or long as you want. You could also make each little medallion, that makes up his wiggly body, a different color. I’m going to use this same little worm as an applique on baby blankets and toddler shirts too. This little guy is so versatile and a snap to make! There are a million and one variations and A+ applications. Have fun!
