By popular demand, the children size of the hooded cardigan sweater is finally here! Crocheted from the top down with no sewing required (other than the buttons), this hooded cardigan is easy to crochet and easy to adjust to create the perfect fit. Top down construction allows for the sweater to be tried on as you crochet so that you can go up or down a size while crocheting if needed. You can also customize the length of the body and sleeves to your liking. Crochet the sweater for boys and girls! Check out the Hooded Baby Cardigan Sweater pattern for baby sizes.

Crochet Pattern: Bun and Ponytail Hat (5 Sizes)

By Rachel Choi – December 17th, 2016 1 Comment

This crochet pattern was requested by a Crochet Spot reader!
This hat is designed for the messy buns and the high ponytails. No need to squish your hair when you wear hats, let it stick out the top. Each hat size is crocheted with an elastic opening so that it stretches easily over the hair and doesn’t leave a large gap between hair and hat. A tutorial for crocheting with the elastic is included. This pattern comes in 5 sizes, ranging from baby (if they’re blessed with lots of hair!) to adults, so that everyone in the family can have one!

Crochet Pattern: Cozy Keyhole Scarf

By Rachel Choi – December 10th, 2016 Be the first to comment

Forget traditional scarves when you can wear a keyhole scarf! This scarf has a small hole strategically placed that allows you to pull the end of the scarf through to secure it around your neck. You don’t have to worry about knotting the scarf or wrapping the scarf around your neck multiple times and having it unravel. Keyhole scarves also use less yarn than traditional scarves, making them less bulky to wear and quicker to crochet.

Crochet Pattern: Tall Ice Cream Cone Applique

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – December 6th, 2016 Be the first to comment
Ever since I attended a craft party for the charity Sole Hope, I have been thinking about crafting with denim in new ways. During the party, we cut up old jeans into pieces to make shoes for children who need them. Thinking of old jeans as a textile, I began imagining painted denim canvases and tote bags. And a denim tote bag would look great with a crochet applique like this one on it!
