Crochet Pattern: Rosette

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 29th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
I admit I miss my beautiful flower garden, which my family tends from the first crocus to fall mums. So, to satisfy my longing I enjoy crocheting flowers, especially with fingering yarn. They look so lacy and feminine and can be used in a myriad of ways. This rosette can be used as a bow on packages, on a child’s headband, or a pin for a hat or coat. They can be crocheted in no time and can be quite addictive. I hope to make several of these rosettes in a rainbow of colors to join into a lacy scarf that can be worn into early spring.

Crochet Pattern: Christmas Holly Applique

While digging through my boxes of holiday decorations I found garland after garland of holly. So, this week’s pattern is, you guessed it, a holly applique. I think this would look so sweet around the hem of a child’s dress. It could also be used to spruce up your Christmas gift tags.

After cooking down for hours we canned the yummy treat to preserve for the chilly days of winter. This week, I created this applique which can be used hundreds of ways. It would look darling on kitchen towels! As a gift, I plan to sew this on a onesie and embroider, “Apple of My Eye” for a sweet little girl I know.
