The Best Crochet Project Bag

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – April 14th, 2015 9 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been toting my crochet around with me wherever I go these days. It makes me so happy! I bring my crochet with me to work and gaze upon it, though I never have time to work on it while I’m there. It’s okay because it keeps me motivated and if I do get a rare moment to make one or two stitches, well, that’s progress!

I’ve been taking a little of my own advice and I’ve been Finding My Crochet Time. For me that means just doing a few rows or a few repeats every day. It feels great to see my projects grow and I’ve been enjoying the beautiful yarn from my local yarn shops (and my stash, of course!) I had been using a variety of different project bags, but the one I decided to take with me just last night felt completely perfect. Here’s a picture!

It's cute, right?

Crochet Pattern: Doll Blouse and Jumper

By Amy – April 12th, 2015 Be the first to comment
When I was a little girl, there was nothing I liked more than making my own doll clothes. Today, I may not play with dolls, but the ability to crochet for the little one’s that do is even more satisfying. The blouse is worked from the top down and attached in the back with buttons. The jumper has two buttons for the straps and an easy-to-make, full skirt. Sizing is for average sized baby dolls with measurements to be more exact. The blouse and jumper can easily be lengthened by adding more rows for taller dolls if needed. crochet doll blouse and jumper

Crochet Pattern: Puffy Flower Bookmark

By Candace – April 11th, 2015 Be the first to comment
When it starts warming up, it’s a great time to grab a book and head outside to enjoy the sunshine. If you have to run in for a drink, keep your page with a pretty floral bookmark. The petals make a fun, cute way to work on bobbles, and the whole bookmark is easy to make, so you’ll be out there with your new find or old favorite in no time. crochet_puffy_flower_bookmark

Crochet Pattern: Mesh Cardigan Sweater (9 Sizes)

By Rachel Choi – April 5th, 2015 Be the first to comment
The mesh cardigan sweater is light weight and great for layering. The sweater is crocheted from the top down with no sewing required (other than the buttons). It can be made in 9 different sizes from X-Small to 5X. Try it on as you go to ensure the proper fit. The sweater is intended to have a tight fit, but if a looser fit is desired simply crochet the next size up. As an adjustable sweater, you can make the sleeves as long or short as you like to create short sleeves or long sleeve. crochet mesh cardigan sweater

By Amy – April 2nd, 2015 9 Comments
You know spring has arrived when flowers and trees begin budding and blossoming. It’s a time that brings a joy to our hearts and adds a little extra spring to our step. The crochet pattern for today is a simple daisy. The stamen of the flower is created in two parts and the petals are added afterward. If you don’t already have an idea of what you want to do with your flower(s), here’s a few suggestions: attach one to a headband, wear it as a pin on your clothes, or make a bunch and lay around your house for decoration! Let me know what you decide to do! Spring Daisy

Stash Busting Tip: Double-Stranded Crochet!

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – March 31st, 2015 6 Comments

I am very excited to share a technique I recently rediscovered while working on my newest crocheted shawl for spring. The technique is called “double stranding.” It is actually quite simple and it can really come in handy when you’re trying to stash down (as I still am doing!)

Crochet Pattern: Woodland Book Bag

By Amy – March 29th, 2015 1 Comment
Bags are one of those items a person just can’t have enough of, I always say. This book bag pattern is created using an interesting stitch design that is surprisingly simple to create. It gives the bag texture that makes it stand out from the crowd. For accent, I chose to use a tree and a cute hedgehog but you can use your own appliques as well to give it a completely different look! Feel free to line the interior of the bag for extra strength if you’re going to carry heavy books. crochet woodland book bag
