Free Crochet Pattern: Southwestern Beanie

Southwestern Beanie | Crochet Spot

Did you catch the Southwestern Cinch Cowl crochet pattern posted here a few days ago? Well, here’s a hat to go along with it — the Southwestern Beanie!

There is really nothing complicated about this beanie at all. The ribbing for the band is simple single crochets worked in the back loops only, and the body also is single crocheted. And though the striping might look complicated, all it is is beefed up single crochets! Yep, just like the Southwestern Cinch Cowl, the texture is created by working a single crochet puff, which means you just tack on a few more loops when making a regular single crochet.

Top it off with a pom-pom of your color choice and you have a perfect fall accessory! Be sure to check out the first half of this pair, the Southwestern Cinch Cowl!

Free Crochet Pattern: Southwestern Cinch Cowl

Crochet Pattern: Southwestern Striped Cowl

Looking for a project with bold color? I’ve long been inspired by Mexican blankets with their bold color and geometric prints, and finally I found a chance to incorporate this beauty into a project with my Southwestern Cinch Cowl.

Worked with 6 different medium weight yarns, this cowl is also an excellent stash buster. It is crocheted with alternating rows of single crochet and single crochet puff stitch, an easy and fun transition with a gentle twist of texture.

It only takes a few hours to make so go ahead and grab some colors from your yarn stash and give it a try!

Free Crochet Pattern: Gail Slouch Beanie

Gail Slouch Beanie at Crochet Spot

It is officially Autumn and I am just itching to start crocheting hats and scarves! Some of my favorite hats to crochet are slouch beanies because they fit loosely on the head, and I can’t stand a hat that smooshes my hair down.

With the Gail Slouch Beanie, the fit is just right. (And if you want a different size than suggested, look on down for instructions on how to adjust the size of your beanie). First you will crochet the ribbing in rows and then turn the hat to work the body, which is made of alternating puff stitches. Though the hat may look complicated, it really is quite simple and crochets with ease.

Give the Gail Slouch Beanie a try and let me know what you think!

Are you a keychain collector? It’s funny how many of those things you can collect involuntarily. This is a fun and quirky keychain to crochet with little bits of vibrant color to make it resemble neon. Crochet it by first working two panels and adding ears. The embroidery is very simple and so is the finish. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Free Crochet Pattern: Lilac Puff Cowl

Chunky Puff Cowl at Crochet Spot

Chunky yarns are so much fun to work with. I recently was given a few different colors of Bernat Blanket yarn, a yarn that I had not had the pleasure of using yet and was dying to get my hands on. I had to give it some thought before I could decide what to do with it — you know it has to be just perfect. I chose to design a simple cowl and let this lovely lilac yarn be the main feature.

Though it is still blazing summer here, I imagine I am hastening fall by designing a chunky cowl. Want to give it a try? The cowl is very easy to make. Puffs are essentially a cluster of hdc, and you can have as many hdc in one cluster as you can manage. However, since the yarn is so bulky, a 2 hdc puff is adequate for this project.

Free Crochet Pattern: Granny Square Key Chain

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 18th, 2018 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

Take a little piece of crochet with you wherever you go! Crochet this classic granny square in a miniature form and attach it to your keys. Use scraps of yarn for this tiny project. The pattern uses #1 super fine weight yarn / sock yarn / size 3 crochet thread, but if you don’t have something that thin, feel free to use whatever you have on hand. If using a different weight of yarn, the size of the square will be different, and that’s perfectly okay!

There’s nothing more refreshing than a nice cold bottle of water on a summer day! The only down side of a cold bottle of water is the bottle “sweat” that gets everywhere. Crochet this easy cozy to absorb the moisture and help keep your cold bottle insulated. The cozy is adjustable for different bottle sizes, just follow the instructions within the pattern to customize the size.

Free Crochet Pattern: Beachrock Tablet Cover

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 4th, 2018 by Amy – 2 Comments


[Updated September 6, 2018]

With summer comes pleasant thoughts of the beach — sandy shores, waves lapping against the shore. I wanted to emulate that feeling with this tablet cover by using stripes of aqua, tan, and cream.

The first few rows are worked in single crochet before beginning a textured pattern of single crochet and double crochet. It is a very easy pattern and works up quickly! Add a bamboo toggle with natural cord for just the right beachside touch.

Free Crochet Pattern: Rounded Bow

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on June 27th, 2018 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

This bow is crocheted in the round to create rounded edges, as opposed to the pointed corners of a traditional bow. Worked in only three rounds, the bow works up quickly so you can make a dozen in no time. Crochet a bunch in a variety of colors to use as appliques or hair accessories. Feel free to change the size of the bow by changing your crochet hook size or even your yarn weight.
