Crochet Pattern: Wrap Flower

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 31st, 2013 by Candace – 3 Comments
This pattern uses an alternative technique for creating twirls (increasing vertically instead of horizontally) to make a flower. It is simple to make, and the turning chains actually create humps to differentiate the petals. You can work the flower without the stem to make a simple floral brooch or 3-D applique. crochet_wrap_flower

Crochet Pattern: Lace and Ribbon Headband

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 29th, 2013 by Emilee Gettle – 5 Comments
There are so many cute hair accessories in the stores now. The prices range from super cheap to out of this world expensive. I enjoy traveling to craft shows where home businesses sell their handmade goods. I’ve seen many takes on the crocheted headband. This pattern is my own twist by making lace and weaving a satin ribbon through it. The ends of the ribbon work perfect for tying on the headband. These crochet up ultra fast and are great for adults and kids alike. Make several while watching TV to sell at craft shows and bazaars in the spring!

An embellishment inspired by a wish for spring to hurry up and return, this busy little bee can be used alone, or it can pollinate all those crochet flowers you’ve been working on. As a tip, you can carry the yarn as you work to minimize the number of ends to weave in at the end. crochet_busy_bee

Crochet Pattern: Half-Round Mini Bag

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 9th, 2013 by Candace – 5 Comments
This mini bag is worked both in the round and flat with no sewing necessary for the body. It’s great for stashing a few bills and a tube of lip gloss or, if you install a zipper, loose change. Feel free to line the mini bag if desired, but you really don’t need to unless you plan to store really small objects in it. crochet_half_round_mini_bag

Crochet Pattern: Mini Sweater Ornament / Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 29th, 2012 by Corinne Munger – 5 Comments
After I made the first one of these, the ideas started flowing… make them in all different colors, attach to string as if on a clothesline, how about in your child’s school colors, or make a set for coasters? These can also be used as an applique on whatever you’d like. They’re small at only 3 1/2″ high and quick to make. You can embroider letters on the front, or use more than one color and make patterns. Lot’s of fun for a cute little shape. Hint: Don’t make the sleeves as long as the pattern suggests, and you have a T-Shirt shape instead! Have fun with this! sweater mini 003
