Crochet Pattern: Super Quick Slippers (9 Sizes)

By Rachel Choi – September 17th, 2015 Be the first to comment
These super quick slippers can be crocheted in one sitting. Using a large crochet hook and super bulky weight yarn, these slippers will be nice and warm to wear this winter. The slippers are crocheted from the toe up, in one piece, so that no sewing is required. Instructions are written out for 9 different sizes, U.S. women sizes 4 – 12. Since everyone has different feet, there are also instructions for customizing the slippers in case you want a tighter or looser fit. Feel free to decorate your slippers with cute flower appliques or fun buttons. You can even add you own straps to the slippers if desired.

Crochet & Cats Pattern Round-Up

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – September 15th, 2015 2 Comments

Last week we explored the Crochet & Cats phenomenon. This week it’s time to crochet in honor of and for our furry friends!

Cats are usually afraid of water, but the Cat Scrubbie will actually help you do dishes. Kind of. Help your child play dress up or express your catty side with the Child’s Cat Ear Headband.Your cat can play with any of these fun (& funny) cat toys! Crochet a lot with the 5 Quick Cat Toys pattern. Alternately, you could try the Miss Mouse Cat Toy. If your crochet skills are lacking, try the April Fools Cat Toy. (It’s really easy!) After playing, your sweetheart needs a cozy place to rest, so why not crochet the Super Versatile Cat Bed? I think it would look great in a multicolored yarn.

So what about you, my friends? Do think your cat would like these patterns? Are you going to try one? Please leave your thoughts, ideas and questions in the comment section below.

Crochet Pattern: Gradient Seashore Dishcloth

By Amy – September 13th, 2015 Be the first to comment
Dishcloths are excellent ways to show off some of your favorite crochet stitches and could be just as well called stitch samplers. Since my family really loves fresh produce, we tend to use such cloths for produce towels, and they work beautifully. Two strands of super fine weight yarn are held together constantly for this pattern and the colors are alternated, giving it a unique gradient. The stitch is a solid shell which is a popular stitch seen often in crochet projects and easy to do. Let me know what you think! Gradient Seashore Dishcloth

Crochet Pattern: Talia Earrings

By Candace – September 11th, 2015 3 Comments
Try something a little different with these dome-shaped thread earrings. You can choose how pronounced the shape is during blocking– choose a more subtle, shallow dome or a deep, dramatic dome to suit your style. Remember to use your stiffener of choice to hold whichever shape you choose. crochet_talia_earrings

Crochet Pattern: Merry Yeoman Hat (5 Sizes)

By Amy – September 10th, 2015 Be the first to comment
We all know the Robin Hood legends. Some say he was a knight returning from the Crusades to find his home and lands confiscated by the traitorous Prince John. And then there are others that say he is a simple villager who ended up an outlaw through a more simple incident of injustice. Here is a hat designed to look just like the style depicted on many Robins through the years. It is worked all at once with no seaming or special shaping. Make your next cosplay outfit the man (or woman) in lincoln green! crochet yeoman hat

Crochet & Cats: It’s a Thing

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – September 8th, 2015 19 Comments

I don’t know what made me think of it, but last week I decided to look up “cats” here on Crochet Spot. With a number of results displaying on Crochet Spot, I was inspired to go a little further and do just a bit more research. While in 2010 Rachel wondered, ‘Do All Crocheters Have Cats?‘ and got a whopping 253 comments and 135 facebook likes, today’s Google search retrieves over 2.2 million results for “crochet & cats”!

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
