Crochet Pattern: Peppermint Coffeemaker Cozy

By Amy – September 6th, 2015 Be the first to comment
A Chemex is a manual coffeemaker with a simple and yet sophisticated design going as far back as the 40’s. I’ve been making coffee with a Chemex for many years now and I will readily admit it is the best coffee I’ve ever tasted. I designed the Rugged Chemex Cozy with a rustic feel in mind. But today I want to share with you my Pepperming Chemex Cozy pattern. It is made by first crocheting a rectangle and then cinching it up with ribbon to fit the Chemex. Let me know what you think! (Note: depending upon yarn thickness/fiber, temperature of coffee, quantity in pot, etc, cozy may not prevent you from burning yourself). Pepperming Chemex Cozy

Crochet Pattern: Lacy Chevron Scarf

By Rachel Choi – September 4th, 2015 1 Comment
Here’s a lacy and dainty take on the popular chevron pattern that uses only one color. Of course you can use multiple colors if desired, but this chevron pattern is still visible with a single color since it alternates solid rows with lacy rows. The pattern contains instructions for adjusting the size of the scarf, so you can make it as big or small as desired. You can even make it into an elegant shawl wrap! Feel free to crochet the scarf with your favorite yarn, thick or thin. The thinner yarns will give more drape.

Crochet Pattern: Alora Earrings

By Candace – September 1st, 2015 4 Comments
This pair of crochet earrings is as fun to wear as they are to make. The chain lace is simple yet pretty, and it’s quick to make. The open shape gives you a variety of options when it comes to how to wear them. Place your earwires in different parts of the earring and orient them differently to see how the look changes. For a popular style, try adding a chain to the open ends and dangling them lace side down. crochet_alora_earrings

Crochet Pattern: Rugged Coffeemaker Cozy

By Amy – August 29th, 2015 2 Comments
Are you familiar with Chemex coffee makers? Years ago, our coffee maker died and we set out to find something better. We have been making coffee with a Chemex for a few years now and we agree that it is the best way to make coffee. All it takes is a kettle for warming water and Chemex filters and you have coffee in minutes. Because of its simplistic style I was inspired to make an easy cozy with pure cotton yarn. Let me know what you think! (Note: depending upon yarn thickness/fiber, temperature of coffee, quantity in pot, etc, cozy may not prevent you from burning yourself). Rugged Chemex Cozy

6 Fun Crochet Patterns for the Sukkah

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – August 25th, 2015 3 Comments

Have you ever heard of Sukkot? Like Hanukkah, it is a Jewish Festival that lasts about a week. Unlike Hanukkah, it takes place during the autumn season. It is a time to give thanks for the fall harvest. During this time, people who observe this festival build sukkahs, which are temporary shelters meant to symbolize the shelters used by Jews during the 40 years of wandering.

During the festival, people spend time in the sukkah, eating there, having guests, and sometimes even sleeping there. Decorating the sukkah can be a fun activity for the whole family. Since Sukkot begins on September 27, 2015 and ends on October 4th this year, there is plenty of time to crochet one of these projects for your sukkah or to share these project with friends who may celebrate the holiday.
