Crochet Pattern: Airy Hooded Cowl

By Candace – September 15th, 2013 Be the first to comment
My favorite jacket and coat share several things in common, but the most inconvenient similarity is the lack of a hood, so accessories become a necessity. A hooded cowl is an easy alternative to a hat and scarf when it’s time to face cooler weather. This open shell patterned cowl is easy to customize. It is crocheted from the bottom up, all in one piece. crochet airy hooded cowl

Crochet Pattern: Sweet Baby Doll Booties

By Amy – September 12th, 2013 5 Comments
When I was little the items of doll clothes I lost the most were socks and shoes. I never seemed to be able to keep them with the rest of the clothes. Of course, some little girls don’t care much for putting socks and shoes on their dolls. But I’ve always had a love for shoes so it annoyed me to lose them. Well, despite whether she loses them or not, crochet these for a little girl and see if she doesn’t think you’re the best! Sweet Baby Doll Booties

Crochet Pattern: Diamond Ruffle Scarf

By Candace – September 8th, 2013 1 Comment
There’s a new crochet pattern in the Crochet Spot Store! Transitional weather calls for cool accessories like skinny scarves – enough to keep you warm without making you hot. The mixture of taller stitches and shorter ones give the edges a gentle lettuce effect. This scarf works up quickly, and the ruffled sections can be done while watching TV. The cabled diamonds require a knowledge of tall stitches and a few other tricks. crochet diamond ruffle scarf

I love crochet thread earrings (and other jewelry for that matter), and these are no different. They are very light in weight, but for a little more heft, you can add beads either in pattern or dangling as an afterthought. crochet_trista_earrings

How to Crochet a Floppy Ruffle

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – September 5th, 2013 2 Comments

Ruffles can be a lot of fun! They are great to add to the bottom of a sweater, a hat, or even as a floofy fringe alternative on the ends or sides of a scarf! There are hundreds of ways to crochet ruffles, but we’re going to learn just one here. Excitingly, this version uses both the classic double crochet and the long, slim triple crochet!

By Amy – September 3rd, 2013 8 Comments
My little sister has a stuffed bear collection that she just adores. But like every little girl she also has a baby doll. She often begs me to crochet clothing for her doll, so I decided to pull this project out of the hat. She’s pleased with it but I think she would have been happier if it had been pink!
This project is quick and easy, and will make a wonderful gift for any little girl!
