Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Crown Headband

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 18th, 2019 by Claire Golden – 1 Comment

I’ve always loved wearing flower crowns because they have such a fairytale feeling. A boring day gets much more exciting when you feel like a princess. But daisy chains wilt and flower crowns aren’t always that comfortable to wear, so I crocheted an alternative. This flower crown is quick and easy to make if you know the basics of Tunisian crochet, and the headband is easily adjustable to fit any size head. Try mixing up the colors to make something that will brighten your winter days!

Free Crochet Pattern: Sea Anemone Scrunchie

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 4th, 2019 by Claire Golden – 3 Comments

Scrunchies are regaining their popularity, which makes me happy because they’re such a fun accessory. It’s a great way to spice up a plain ponytail or bun, and it’s a perfect stash-buster for those tiny balls of yarn. I made this scrunchie with some leftover purple yarn and the finished result reminds me of a sea anemone. Try it out and add some ruffly flair to your hair!

Free Crochet Pattern: Catty Corner Throw Pillow

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 25th, 2019 by Amy – Be the first to comment

I’m not going to lie, I frogged this design so many times. The theory was sound, I kept telling myself, and I did not want to give up, but the uniqueness of the stitch I had chosen caused me a great deal of question. I first had to find how to count rows of slip stitch, where the turning chain was, whether I wanted to work into the turning chain for a finer edge, and etc. However, once I had it figured out, the going was a breeze!

If you’ve ever worked from corner to corner then this pattern should be easy as pie for you. If you haven’t, then just know you will be increasing on both ends until you have the width of the pillow, working even by increasing on one end and decreasing on the other, and then decreasing on both ends to finish. Sound complicated? It really isn’t, trust me.

The only thing you need to know is how to increase while working a slip stitch pattern. Don’t miss the instructions below on how to do this!

This was really an exciting pattern to design. I hope you like it. Let me know if you give it a try!

Free Crochet Pattern: 2-Round Snowflake

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 6th, 2019 by Claire Golden – 4 Comments

Snow is one of my favorite things about winter. There’s something so cozy about watching the snow fall outside while you curl up with a blanket and a crochet project. It doesn’t snow much where I live, though, so this little snowflake is my solution. They’re perfect for a gift topper, hair clip, or strung together in a garland. With only 2 rounds, you can make a pile of them in a few hours…and these snowflakes won’t give you frostbite.

Free Crochet Pattern: Classic Beret

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 28th, 2019 by Amy – 2 Comments

Beret’s are very simple and versatile hats to crochet. They are created with simple intervals of increases, decreases and working even. Use a smaller hook for a stiffer hat or a larger hook for a slouchy hat. Or you can always crochet less in the beginning circle to create a smaller hat, or more to create a wider hat. Leave it as is for a casual addition to your wardrobe, or attach a pom-pom for a more traditional look.

If you haven’t tried making one yet, give it a try and see what I mean!

Free Crochet Pattern: Noelle Shimmer Cowl

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 3rd, 2018 by Amy – 11 Comments

You know that feeling you get when you create something simple but it turns out looking exquisite? That’s my feeling about the Noelle Shimmer Cowl!

Though the design is super simple, pair it with the right materials and you have something worthy to be worn in the most formal occasions! And by simple, I mean all you do is work half double crochets in the back loops throughout. See what I mean?

I cannot say enough about the character of this cowl. It is lightweight and stretchier than most crochet fabrics, making it the perfect go to piece for your wardrobe, from fall to spring. I used Patons Glam Stripes in White Gold (I was oohing and ahhing over the shimmery goldness the entire time!) but try it with your favorite yarn to admire the difference it makes!

If you give the Noelle Shimmer Cowl a try be sure and let me know what you think!

Free Crochet Pattern: Easy Crochet Fingerless Gloves

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on November 20th, 2018 by Amy – 9 Comments

When I first got into crocheting many years ago, fingerless gloves were my favorite to crochet. I made many versions for different people, as well as for myself, and played around with length and style. I remembered a pair that I made that were short and simple and decided to design another “short and simple” pair with a few techniques to make them look more advanced, like adding a cuff and reverse crochet trim.

These gloves really are surprisingly simple to crochet. And they don’t take a lot of yarn either! Make yourself some over a weekend or make up a handful to give as gifts this Christmas.
