Free Crochet Pattern: Noelle Shimmer Cowl

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 3rd, 2018 by Amy – 9 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.

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.
