Crochet Pattern: Whimsy Snowman Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 20th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 4 Comments
Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? As a kid snow on Christmas was a pretty high priority, but not so much that we couldn’t drive to my Grandma’s house for all the holiday festivities. Those years have long since passed and since a white Christmas isn’t in my forecast for this year I thought I’d whip up a little snowman applique to remind me of all those warm Christmas time memories. This frosty fellow would be perfect perched on your gift tags, for embellishing kid’s clothes or any other project that might need a bit of sprucing up for the holidays.

Crochet Pattern: Open Capelet

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 15th, 2011 by Candace – 5 Comments
This capelet is light and airy, but it’s also surprisingly warm. It uses tall stitches, so it’s quick to work up and very open. The cape has a very loose drape but can be blocked or starched for a more crisp fabric.

Close it up with ties or a pin or leave it open for a more casual look.

I love Christmas and shopping for the perfect gift for everyone on my list. It’s a special time of year to show those close to you how much they really mean to you. I have several people on my list who love crafting as much as I do. Since we all dabble in about a 101 different projects at a time it’s sometimes hard to know what supplies to buy and stick beneath the tree. So, for the yarn lovers I crocheted this gift card holder that will be home to a gift card from one of my favorite yarn shops. This quick project adds a handmade touch that your creative friends are sure to love!

Crochet Pattern: Christmas Holly Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 6th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 5 Comments
While digging through my boxes of holiday decorations I found garland after garland of holly. So, this week’s pattern is, you guessed it, a holly applique. I think this would look so sweet around the hem of a child’s dress. It could also be used to spruce up your Christmas gift tags. You could also turn it into an ornament and send it in your holiday cards as a small gift. If you give baskets of baked goods to your neighbors, you could sew this applique on the towel lining the basket. Your creativity is the only limit to the uses for this pattern. Have fun!

Crochet Pattern: Faux Drop-Stitch Scarf

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 2nd, 2011 by Candace – 7 Comments
While thinking about the problem of replicating the knitted drop-stitch effect in crochet, I hit upon an idea. Solomon’s Knot might work if it was stacked instead of worked as a net. Fortunately for those of us who like the look of strategically dropped knit stitches, it does work, and once you get past the foundation row, it’s easy for an experienced crocheter to work up. If you get stuck, remember to check out the links in the Special Instructions section to get an idea of how the stitches should be made.

It’s that time of year again! Time to pull out all the Christmas decorations from the attic and spruce up your home. Every year I love searching for the perfect wreath for my door. As a special treat, I like taking a walk through the woods and cutting my own greenery. I bring it home and wire wrap it onto a grapevine wreath for an inexpensive but beautiful and welcome sight on our front door. This week I made a Christmas wreath applique, which is a great project when you need a little holiday embellishment quick. You could use it on cards, clothes and linens.

When I was a child I remember one afternoon, while I was taking my nap, my mom crocheted some play food for me. When I awoke there by my pillow was some sweet handmade goodies! Now it’s my turn, and as soon as my little girl awakes from her nap she’ll have these little cookies waiting for her. They are so easy to make and a lot of fun. You can whip up a batch in no time! Make a baker’s dozen and give in a small tin to a little one in your life. Don’t forget to take some for children on your baked good delivery route this holiday season!

Crochet Pattern: Cupped Bauble Bracelet

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on November 23rd, 2011 by Candace – 6 Comments
This wire bracelet has a cool and sophisticated look when made with pearls, and the wire crochet gives it an interesting texture. The simple shaping creates the “cups” that the beads rest in.

Remember to be careful when making this pattern because mistakes in wire are not as easy to take out as mistakes in yarn are.

It’s hard to believe the holidays are knocking on our door! I love Thanksgiving! It is one of the only days of the year when I get to see most all of my family. I love recalling childhood days and sharing those memories with those dear to my heart. This week my crochet project is a turkey applique in honor of Turkey Day! This little applique can be used in many ways for clothes, kitchen or dining room linens, cards or even as a pin to wear. I used a finer crochet thread for the feathers and a bit chunkier fingering yarn for the body to add definition.
