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!
