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.

Crochet Pattern: Lacy Hair Scrunchie

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 4th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 8 Comments
Over the summer I have been in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco. While on business and vacationing I’ve had the opportunity to window shop and browse a variety of stores. I love adapting my wardrobe to the latest style without paying big bucks. As of late, I’ve been seeing a lot of lace and some really cute, feminine hair accessories popping up everywhere! So, I whipped up this super simple hair scrunchie. This is the perfect project for using up leftover bits of yarn. Don’t forget to make some for the little girls in your life! They make great gifts too.

Crochet Pattern: Ruffled Cuffs

If your winter style is warm and bold, this project is for you. Cuffs keep your wrists warm while adding flair to an otherwise boring top. These are worked in the round with several tiers of ruffles added throughout the cuff. These would look great peeking out from under a coat sleeve.

Crochet Pattern: Blue Raspberry Lollipop Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 29th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 4 Comments
There’s a candy store just down the street that sells huge lollipops in every color of the rainbow. Wide eyed children try to reach for the heavenly treats that are just out of their grasp. I suppose the manager has had a few broken lollipops over the years and so keeps them safe on the counter for the splurging parent to snatch. So, in honor of all those little ones who grow teary eyed for lollipops I created this sweet applique. It’s prefect for sewing on onesies or toddler shirts! You can make this project as large as you want by adjusting the chain and yarn weight!

The only thing cuter than a happy baby is a happy baby in a pair of cute booties. These will keep the lucky infant’s tootsies warm with a dash of feminine style. Contrasting colors and a ruffled edging makes these booties hard to miss. The symmetrical shape makes them identical and eliminates the hassle of figuring out which bootie goes on which foot.

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!
