Free Crochet Pattern: Country Chic Jar Cover

By Amy – August 30th, 2017 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

By Rachel Choi – August 18th, 2017 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

By Rachel Choi – August 14th, 2017 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.
