This pattern set includes 3 skinny scarves with unique eyelet patterns: offset eyelets, striped eyelets and diamond eyelets. Each scarf is designed to be only 3″ wide to create a narrow scarf that is great for warm summer or spring weather. The eyelet patterns along with the narrow width create a relaxed drape in the scarves. Accessorize your outfits with these skinny scarves without adding too much bulk or warmth.

Crochet Pattern: Doll Pioneer Bonnet

By Amy – July 9th, 2015 5 Comments
Are you one of those people that have always loved the pioneer lifestyle – bonnets, stretches of prairie, covered wagons, cooking over a campfire, and sleeping under the stars? Maybe you’re not. Maybe the pioneer life sounds hard, dusty and just plain exhausting. You’d probably be right but who can deny the adventurer inside? Braving the unknown, starting anew, living off the land. It’s fun to think about any way. But there doesn’t have to be any “braving the unknown” with this doll’s bonnet. It’s easy and works up quickly. Add it to the rest of the crocheted doll clothing repertoire! Doll Pioneer Bonnet

Crochet Pattern: Jungle Rhythm Baby Blanket

By Amy – July 2nd, 2015 5 Comments
Designing a new baby blanket is a lot of fun. I like to customize them specifically for the little one that is going to receive it. I created this one with my little niece in mind — bright colors to catch her eye, soft to the touch but with lots of texture. Normally, I design them in neutral colors in case the mother would like to use it for multiple children, or if the parents do not yet know the gender of the child. Whichever you choose to do, I hope you enjoy making this blanket. I can guarantee the recipient of yours will be just as pleased as my niece will be with the one I made! Jungle Rhythm Baby Blanket

20 Great Crochet Patterns for the College-Bound

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – June 30th, 2015 Be the first to comment

Did your eyes well up with tears this past month as you watched someone special walk across the stage and receive a high school diploma? The college years are a very special time in someone’s life. I remember when my mom dropped me off at the residence hall with all my stuff. She came running back in to make sure I had a quarter for a phone call. (Yes, I’m dating myself, but I don’t care! It was the 1990s!)

It was during my college years that I learned how to make a space like home and uniquely my own. I missed my family quite a bit but I was comforted by the things that reminded me of home and family. Why not send your child/friend/family member off to college with something special and crocheted especially for them by you!

Crochet Pattern: Square Scrubbie Set

By Rachel Choi – June 27th, 2015 Be the first to comment
These multipurpose scrubbies are great to have on hand. Use them as a dishcloth to scrub your dishes, clean your counter tops, stove, and all areas of your house. You can also use them as washcloths for kids or adults while bathing. Toss them in your washing machine when they get too dirty so that you can reuse them again and again. The small squares fit great in the palm of your hand, but if you want a larger or smaller size the scrubbies can easily be adjusting by following the instructions within the pattern. Each scrubbie has a loop at its corner so that it can easily be hung to dry. crochet square scrubbie set

Crochet Pattern: Frilled Doll Apron

By Amy – June 25th, 2015 1 Comment
Do you remember those lovely, untouchable dolls? The ones with the tight curls, powdered cheeks, bright eyes, and old-fashioned wardrobe? I received my very own porcelain doll as a gift one year and on occasion I couldn’t resist taking her out to straighten her hair or dress. What attracted me most to these delicate dolls was their old-fashioned outfits made of satin and lace frills. This dolls apron brings back the old days where an apron was a must for cooking and cleaning of any kind. Made with light weight yarn and using simple crochet techniques, you can work this apron up in a jiffy. Frilly Doll Apron

How to Calculate the Length of Yarn by Weight

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – June 23rd, 2015 7 Comments

Have you ever wondered how much yarn you have left to go in your skein? How about how much yarn you’ve used in your finished project? I didn’t realize this when I first started crocheting, but it is possible to know the length of yarn used or how much yarn is left in a skein without taking out a yard stick. All you need is some information and a kitchen scale.
