Crochet Pattern: Braided Bangle/Cuff Bracelet

This bracelet is simply made using a half double crochet stitch. You can easily make it shorter or longer to your preference. This can have different looks using different colors or fibers. I even found that stitched to the wrist of a pair of pre-made gloves gives you a great decorative cuff! Give it a try – it only takes a few minutes! cuff bracelet 013

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

Crochet Pattern: Christmas Pickle

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 19th, 2012 by Candace – 3 Comments
The Christmas pickle is part of a German-American tradition in which the children of the family search for the pickle on the Christmas tree. The first one to find it gets a reward such as the privilege of opening the first gift or good luck. You can adjust the difficulty of this game in your own home by adjusting the size of your hook and yarn or the color of your yarn to make the search easier or harder. crochet_christmas_pickle
