Crochet Pattern: Alphabet’s End Scarf

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 31st, 2017 by Candace – 1 Comment

When I bought a skein of deliciously soft fall-themed yarn, I knew I had to use it–even if it was still feeling more like summer than autumn. With that in mind, I decided to go for something open and airy that I could later bunch up for warmth when the weather turns. So I decided to turn to letters that come in toward the end of the alphabet– Y, X, and V–to create a pattern that fit my needs. The pattern is easily changed if you like a wider or longer scarf.

Crochet Pattern: Chunky Basketweave Earwarmers

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 25th, 2017 by Amy – Be the first to comment

In the winter, chunky and bulky yarns are my favorite to crochet with. I love the feel of the material as I crochet as well as how they wear or look when finished.

Another thing I find indispensable in the winter are earwarmers. My ears always freeze, so if I am not already wearing a hat, I must have earwarmers with me at all times. This pair of earwarmers is the perfect choice with it’s chunky yarn, basketweave stitch, and wooden buttons.

Make the earwarmers in four rows of basketweave material and then single crochet around for a finished piece. Buttons add just the right touch, and you don’t have to worry about buttonholes because the fabric creates them naturally.

Here’s to warm ears this coming winter!

How to Crochet a Wire Bracelet

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns, Tutorials and Help on September 6th, 2017 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

If you’ve been following along recently on the blog, you’ve come across a few beginner level wire jewelry crochet patterns: Circle Wire Earrings and Wire Fashion Ring. In this post, I have a video that demonstrates a bracelet being crocheting. Hopefully this video will help those that are having trouble working with wire.

As usual, the crochet pattern itself is super easy, but the tricky part is getting used to crocheting with wire. The pattern used is simply a few rows of single crochet stitches. 30 gauge wire is used to crochet the bracelet, which is softer and easier to work with compared to my previous patterns. The softer wire, also works wells to create a flexible bracelet.

The video below, by Beaducation, will walk you through crocheting a practice swatch with regular yarn, to crocheting the wire bracelet from beginning to end. It is a long video that is very detailed, so feel free to skip around if it is too slow for you, or pause it every now and then if you are crocheting along.

I’m a huge fan of Beaducation (with no affiliation), and love their tutorials and supplies for jewelry making! What do you think of this video? Did you enjoy crocheting jewelry?
