Free Crochet Pattern: Strawberry Favor Bag

By Amy Yarbrough – May 13th, 2019 3 Comments

Here we are again, another Spring and I’m dreaming of strawberries. For some reason, though I have never been overly obsessed with strawberries, I always start adding them to my designs when Spring comes around. Perhaps it’s because the splash of red against the pleasing green is always a delight.

Not surprisingly then, I have a new design for you completely centered on the beautiful fruit: the Strawberry Favor Bag. Recently I designed the Carrot Favor Bag and had a great time visualizing how the natural greenery would look in a crocheted fashion. Then I thought, why not try the cinch bag idea with other fruit and vegetable designs?

The Strawberry Favor Bag is very easy to make. The bag is worked from the bottom up in simple crochet increases while the greenery is worked in a simple but unique stitch pattern to create the pointed leaves of the strawberry plant. Add little stitches of light green or yellow for the seeds and you’re ready to fill the bag with candy or trinkets to give as a gift!

Free Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi Pigeon or Dove

By Claire Golden – May 2nd, 2019 2 Comments

I absolutely love watching pigeons and I’ve wanted to crochet one for what seems like forever. But the colorwork is tricky, so I went with a solid color to start, and the finished bird ended up looking like a dove. While researching for this pattern, I learned that doves and pigeons are both part of the Columbidae family, which explains why they look so similar. So this pattern is really a two-in-one, depending on the colors you choose. The bird can stand on its own and is about the size of a real dove or pigeon, but much more cuddly. I hope you have as much fun with this pattern as I did designing it.

Free Crochet Pattern: Dewdrop Boho Headband

By Amy Yarbrough – April 29th, 2019 2 Comments

Everyone has a little hippie in them, am I right?

At least, that’s what I tell not-so-hippie-inclined people. However, whether you go for the hippie/boho style or not, this headband is the perfect choice. Wear it either way you like: across the forehead, for an eclectic look, or over the head, for a more traditional look (see picture below).

What is great about this pattern is that it utilizes taller crochet stitches. (See post, How to Crochet Tall Stitches) The headband is worked in separate circle motifs, from large to medium and small, and then sewn together. A light border is worked over the band of sewn circles to bring it all together and simple ties are attached to the ends for easy wearing.

Ready to give it a try?

(Kudos to my sister for looking smashing in the headband! Doesn’t her long, thick hair just fit perfectly?)

Free Crochet Pattern: Juggling Balls With Carrying Case

By Claire Golden – April 17th, 2019 3 Comments

A few months ago my dad asked if I could crochet juggling balls, and I was happy to oblige. They were easy and fun to make especially with this colorful sock yarn I had in my stash. I filled them with rice to make them heavy enough for juggling balls. Since juggling balls are easy to misplace I made a mesh bag to keep track of them. My dad was delighted with his Christmas present, which now lives on his desk at work much to the amusement of his coworkers, who sometimes stop by to juggle. Why not make a set for someone you know who could use a new hobby?

How to Crochet Tall Stitches

By Amy Yarbrough – April 15th, 2019 14 Comments

Are you familiar with tall stitches in crochet? You know, the ones that seem to have no name past treble crochet (tr)? When I was learning to crochet I fiddled around with the lengths of crochet stitches but never actually used them in a pattern.

Recently I realized even after all this time I still hadn’t crocheted much with tall stitches. I thought it was about time I delved into that area of crochet to find out more about it.

Do you have any questions about crocheting tall stitches? Keep reading to find out!
