Free Crochet Pattern: Country Chic Jar Cover

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 30th, 2017 by Amy – Be the first to comment

I never tire of finding new ways to showcase granny squares! Designing with them always adds a little reminder of tradition to a modern style, and I am always in for a little retro. These little jars are great for holding tealights, or tiny potted plants, like succulents.

The pattern is quick and easy. First you will crochet 4 simple granny squares and border them in a round of white single crochet. Then you will join them using a simple single crochet method. There are tips at the bottom of this post explaining how to make this cover for a different sized jars, too.

Mini jars covered in granny squares are just too cute. I would love to see them lining a long table at a country themed wedding or party, wouldn’t you?!

Free Crochet Pattern: Wire Fashion Ring

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 18th, 2017 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

Have you tried crocheting wire jewelry yet? Here’s a simple pattern to crochet your very first ring! While the pattern is super easy, the tricky part is getting the feel for crocheting with wire. You will make all the stitches the same way you would if you were to crochet with regular yarn or thread. But the stiffness of the wire will give your hands a workout. The large crochet hook will help you crochet with the wire more easily and help to create a lacy look. Be sure to check out the Circle Wire Earrings Pattern to create a matching set.

Free Crochet Pattern: Curling Ribbon Flower

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 14th, 2017 by Rachel Choi – 2 Comments

Tired of the same old gift bows? If you have an ample supply of curling ribbing, but don’t actually feel like curing the ribbon, try crocheting a quick flower instead. In the same time it would take to curl all of those strands, or possibly even quicker, you can crochet this simple flower. This ribbon flower is crocheted primarily with chains and only uses 3 yards of ribbon, probably less than what you would use for a curly bow. If you don’t have curling ribbon feel free to use any light weight or medium/worsted weight yarn that you have.

Free Crochet Pattern: Kawaii Pineapple Amigurumi

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 25th, 2017 by Amy – 2 Comments

Two of the most popular themes this summer has been pineapples, and of course, kawaii!

Though a little late to the pineapple bandwagon, I couldn’t help jumping on after seeing so many adorable designs from fellow crafters. One in particular I saw was a pineapple pot cover with the plants aloe vera leaves making the top of the pineapple. This intrigued me and got me to thinking of an open amigurumi with the leaves poking out of the top, like a drawstring bag with leaves popping out the top.

I wasn’t at all sure how it would turn out, but then whoever is?

The pineapple body is made like a simple drawstring bag and stuffed. The three leaves are crocheted separately, sewn together, and then sewn into the bag. For the kawaii features, meaning “cute” in Japanese, I used simple french knots and a few scraps of felt. I topped it off with a contrasting colored ribbon and am now proud to present my Kawaii Pineapple!

I hope you enjoy this pattern! Let me know what you think!
