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

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on November 3rd, 2011 by Candace – 10 Comments
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.

I have a toddler in the house and that means that bath time is synonymous with play time! So I made this little goldfish for her to swim away with. I used old fashion cotton worsted weight yarn for super absorbency. Plus, it will lather up perfectly with her favorite bubble bath. This pattern could easily be adjusted to be a soap saver too!

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 11th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 9 Comments
I love to go for walks on fall evenings. Since the temperature has been dropping briskly, I like to have a little something around my neck to keep me toasty. I hate to pull out the full fledge scarf this time of year, so I decided a neck warmer would do just the trick. This project is so simple! Depending on the type of yarn you use, it can look dressy for a night out or it can be quite practical while you’re getting down and dirty winterizing. Not only do I love this pattern, but it even looks cute on my 3 year old daughter!

Crochet Pattern: Spiral Coaster

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 6th, 2011 by Candace – 1 Comment
Protect your furniture from rings with this quick and easy-to-make coaster. It’s a great stash-buster or scrap project, and the color combinations are endless. Coordinate it with the colors of any room you like to have a cool drink in.

The two-color pattern makes the spiral construction stand out. Since it is crocheted in a spiral the rows have no proper beginning or end, so be sure to use a stitch marker if you need it or just use the color changes as a guide.
