Crochet Pattern: Arctic Edge Brimmed Beret

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – June 29th, 2014 Be the first to comment
For a great style, and necessary warmth for those cold days, this beret is sure to come in handy! The brim is made onto the beret using double strands and simple crochet stitches, while the band and button add the finishing touch.
Being typically the beret-only type of girl, this brimmed design was a new twist for me. I really enjoyed designing it and I hope you will have as much fun making it!

Spring into Summer Crochet Along Winners

By Rachel Choi – June 28th, 2014 8 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I had a great time during the Spring into Summer Crochet Along (CAL)! It’s been four weeks of crocheting, filled with a bunch of quick summer and spring themed patterns. As I mentioned at the beginning of the CAL, there is suppose to be a winner, but I’ve decided to choose a winner for each week of the CAL instead! Why have 1 winner, when you can have 4?

Crochet Pattern: The Polly Belt

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – June 26th, 2014 3 Comments
After watching an episode of Mission: Impossibe (the 60’s TV series) I saw a lovely lemon yellow belt paired with a navy blue suit and matching yellow pumps. My fashion interest was piqued. I set about making a similar belt pattern, complete with lemon yellow yarn. And now you can too!
Belts are all the rage these days because they highlight nearly any outfit. The best thing about them though is that they are incredibly simple to make. All you need is some yarn, a crochet hook, and a belt buckle, and you can whip one of these up in no time!

I know, right!?

Translation: “My goodness, I am entirely fond of tote bags. Don’t you agree?”

I may sound a little giddy, but I don’t mind admitting that I do feel quite enthusiastic about crocheted totes. They’re so useful and so easy to make! I love a quick project and a good tote is definitely worth the return on investment.

This table runner featuring an open edging is versatile and fun to make. It looks good on both its right and wrong sides and can be used with many different table settings. The pattern is written for a more intimate setup but can be adjusted to fit tables of varying widths and lengths, by making the runner as long as desired. crochet honeycomb table runner

Crochet Pattern: Easy Bookmark

By Candace – June 19th, 2014 Be the first to comment
I recently realized that I don’t have many rectangular bookmarks. The easiest way to change that was to take out my thread and hook and work one up. Beginning crocheters who want to try fine yarns and small hooks can use this easy pattern to get comfortable with fine-gauge work. crochet_easy_bookmark

Expanding Geometric Motif Crochet Tutorial

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – June 17th, 2014 5 Comments

I’ve designed quite a few patterns using granny squares because I like how simple and easy they are to make. It’s easy to create something remarkable by using granny squares as a base. But it’s not the only easy motif to choose from.

After crocheting the Expanding Pentagon Motif a few weeks back, we received requests for the same design but in different shapes. So today I’m going to give you a tutorial explaining how to make the motif in any geometric shape you desire.

Crochet Pattern: Floral Table Runner

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – June 15th, 2014 Be the first to comment
Table runners are great pieces for spicing up the tables in your home. Here’s one made with motifs so that the length, and width, are customizable. Simply add more flowers to lengthen and widen the runner, or make less for a smaller piece. Each floral motif is lightweight and easy to make. Once you’ve made as many as you wish, stitch them together for a handmade conversation piece perfect for summer days and lemonade! crochet floral table runner
