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.

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on November 18th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
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.

Crochet Pattern: Amish Nine Patch Potholder

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on November 9th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 9 Comments
When I was young I knew an Amish lady who became a dear friend of mine. I loved visiting her small mercantile that was filled with every kind of calico and solid colored fabric imaginable. Amish ladies in the community made crafts to sell in her store to earn a little extra spending money. I love the simple color combinations of Amish crafts and created this potholder along the lines of what Lizzie might be selling in her store today. Since it is super thick it will guard against hot pots and pans perfectly. This project would also make a cute little pillow!

Crochet Pattern: Apple of My Eye Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on November 5th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 5 Comments
I love visiting orchards this time of year and buying apples by the peck or the bushel. Growing up I have fond memories of making apple butter with my grandma in a giant copper kettle over and open fire. The woodsmoke and sweet apple scent filled the air. After cooking down for hours we canned the yummy treat to preserve for the chilly days of winter. This week, I created this applique which can be used hundreds of ways. It would look darling on kitchen towels! As a gift, I plan to sew this on a onesie and embroider, “Apple of My Eye” for a sweet little girl I know.

Crochet Pattern: Sleep Mask

Sometimes it’s hard to get to sleep with all the distracting sources of light out there. If your neighbor has outside lights or someone in your house needs a light on, it can be hard to block out. A sleep mask helps you get to sleep without inconveniencing anybody else by blocking the light where you need it most–around your eyes.

When crocheting, make sure your stitches are nice and dense to get the most out of your mask.

Fall to me is beautiful leaves, the smell of wood smoke, apples fresh from the orchard, pumpkin pie and a handful of candy corn.

It’s perfect for holding your cell phone, dollars and small necessities! Children love this project. Make up a few for your favorite little friends and fill them with the real deal: candy corn!
