Thick and stylish, this rug is great for winter decor! Use it as a doormat, kitchen sink mat, bathroom rug, the options are endless. Adjust the size of the rug to be as big or small as you desire by using the instructions within the pattern. The main design is a cable stitch pattern that alternates large and small cables. The backside of the rug has a simple, elegant, ridged pattern making the rug reversible. The cable pattern, using front and back post stitches, creates a very thick fabric that is soft and fluffy to step on.

Free Crochet Pattern: Wire Fashion Ring

By Rachel Choi – August 18th, 2017 Be the first to comment

Have you tried crocheting wire jewelry yet? Here’s a simple pattern to crochet your very first ring! While the pattern is super easy, the tricky part is getting the feel for crocheting with wire. You will make all the stitches the same way you would if you were to crochet with regular yarn or thread. But the stiffness of the wire will give your hands a workout. The large crochet hook will help you crochet with the wire more easily and help to create a lacy look. Be sure to check out the Circle Wire Earrings Pattern to create a matching set.

Free Crochet Pattern: Curling Ribbon Flower

By Rachel Choi – August 14th, 2017 2 Comments

Tired of the same old gift bows? If you have an ample supply of curling ribbing, but don’t actually feel like curing the ribbon, try crocheting a quick flower instead. In the same time it would take to curl all of those strands, or possibly even quicker, you can crochet this simple flower. This ribbon flower is crocheted primarily with chains and only uses 3 yards of ribbon, probably less than what you would use for a curly bow. If you don’t have curling ribbon feel free to use any light weight or medium/worsted weight yarn that you have.

Doily Crochet Patterns

By Rachel Choi – August 2nd, 2017 2 Comments

Doilies are often thought of as outdated, but it doesn’t have to be that way! Forget the traditional, white crochet thread and pick up a bright, bold color. Choose a thread that’s thicker than size 10 to give it some bulk. Try a pattern that’s new and different from the rest. Crochet doilies of all sizes and shapes. Crochet one that’s big enough to be a rug! In this post, I rounded up some of the doily crochet patterns that we have here on Crochet Spot. Some are free patterns that are published on the blog, while others are for sale in the Crochet Spot Store.
