Crochet Pattern: Doll Basket

By Amy – June 10th, 2015 3 Comments
Sometimes the most enjoyable things to make are the ones that only take a few minutes. Then again, it might be simply because they are often small projects. After crocheting an extensive pattern it’s helpful to come back to the little things. It’s refreshing and re-inspiring! This doll basket can easily be paired with any outfit, but I suggest would make a good addition to the Doll Peasant Dress just recently posted. It only takes a minute to make using basic crochet techniques. I hope you like it as much as I do! Doll Basket

Crochet Pattern: Tunisian Entrelac Keychain

By Candace – June 4th, 2015 2 Comments
Crochet keychains are great to have around because they are so lightweight. While this keychain isn’t very big (about the size of an alarm fob), it can be made in bright, eye-catching colors to make it easy to find. This keychain is quick and easy to make if you have the hang of Tunisian entrelac. crochet_entrelac_keychain

4 Ways to Hold Crocheted Pieces Together for Seaming

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – June 2nd, 2015 4 Comments

Hello, my Crochet Spot friends! My crochet life has been full and inspiring as of late. I have been working on a lot of different projects which will be used as samples at my local yarn store! It’s all very exciting and it has led me to this post about how to hold your crocheted pieces together for seaming. In case you need a refresher, here is my post on How to Join Crochet Pieces Using Slip Stitches and the Outside Loops.

For the longest while, I had wanted to make a tissue box cozy that looks like a piece of cake, and finally, I did it! Since the cozy is crocheted in pieces, seaming was required. Furthermore, this particular pattern is really helped by pinning or holding the pieces together in some way. Today I’m going to share four ways to hold your crochet together for seaming.

Crochet Pattern: Chevron Basket

By Rachel Choi – May 31st, 2015 1 Comment
If you love the chevron pattern, here is a basket just for you! The basket is crocheted in the round from the bottom up. You can make it as big or as small as you like using the instructions within the pattern to adjust its size. Make it big enough to store your craft projects or small enough to use as a pencil holder. Being able to adjust the width and length of the basket makes the possibilities endless! The chevrons created in this pattern have sharp, crisp, pointy corners. Feel free to use more than 2 colors if desired. crochet chevron basket
