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!

Free Crochet Pattern: Beachrock Tablet Cover

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 4th, 2018 by Amy – Be the first to comment

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.

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.

Free Crochet Pattern: Crinkle Cat Toy

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on May 23rd, 2018 by Amy – 2 Comments

Have you ever thought of making your own cat toys? We make everything else, right? So why not cat toys? What I wanted with this toy was something easy to make with the same elements that attract cats featured in store bought toys, such as the crinkly sound and catnip smell.

For this project you will fill the toy with a crinkly material, like parchment paper or cellophane paper, (one person even used a foil emergency blanket), and you can also add some catnip before closing it up. The pattern itself is very simple and works up quickly!

Knit Stitch Dishcloth at Crochet Spot

The knit stitch is a remarkable stitch to use when you want something unique but still basic, because it is worked just like a single crochet, only shallower. Check out the tutorial for this stitch here!

Using this stitch for a dishcloth is a perfect way to add character to an everyday piece. Crochet this dishcloth in only a few hours or less and add it to your linen supplies for a rustic, handmade touch! And don’t be surprised when your friends want a few as well.

Free Crochet Pattern: Chunky Knit Stitch Mittens

Crochet Pattern: Chunky Knit Stitch Mittens

Have you ever made a pair of mittens before? It may sound a little daunting if you haven’t but believe me, it’s really quite simple. Using the knit stitch, I’ve designed this simple mittens pattern to be basic enough for new crocheters.

Don’t let the details get you down. I suggest two ways of working this mittens pattern – following the instructions straight through, or sizing it accordingly as you go. If you’re the hands-on type (ahem, no pun intended), then I would recommend tailoring each step to your size. For example, try the cuff around your arm and adjust it appropriately. Then the length before the thumb, and next the opening. If you find my instructions don’t meet up with your sizing then simply subtract or add a row here and there. What is important about this pattern is the basic steps: cuff, wrist, thumb-hole, hand length, and thumb length.
