Crochet Pattern: Bridgette Bunny Pillow

By Amy – April 5th, 2017 6 Comments

Do you remember the animal shaped pillows that used to be popular some years ago? I vaguely remember my brother having one growing up. They have made a comeback more recently, like everything always does, and you can buy them from various crafters today. While brainstorming a pattern for Easter, following the line of thought where bunnies and eggs were concerned, I began considering a way to adequately create a chocolate bunny. I started designing a 2D bunny form when I recalled these pillows and my design idea took on form.

This bunny-shaped pillow is crocheted just like a normal pillow, with two identical panels, but with extra shaping to create the bunny form. Before the panels are joined, the details like the face and arms are embroidered with simple embroidery and surface crochet. Joining the panels tops off the bunny shape with a few decreases in the indentions and increases at the tips. And for the finishing touch, a lovely floral ribbon bow!

Give a more lasting gift this Easter of homemade quality, and simultaneously bring back a little bit of vintage!

Crochet Pattern: Shelly Mesh Plarn Bag

By Rachel Choi – April 2nd, 2017 Be the first to comment

Recycle your plastic grocery bags by cutting and tying them into plarn (plastic yarn) and crocheting a brand new tote bag! This pattern uses about 50 average sized grocery bags. The pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up, including the handles, with no sewing required. The stitch pattern is solid on the very bottom of the bag and changes to a shell stitch mesh pattern for the body. The plarn material is sturdy and does not stretch like traditional yarn, making it perfect for crochet bags.

Prisoners Crochet Plarn Mats for the Homeless

By Rachel Choi – March 31st, 2017 1 Comment

Recently we discussed different charities that we all crochet for, and one of the activities mentioned was crocheting plarn (plastic yarn) mats for the homeless. So I wanted to share this fantastic video that I came across where prisoners crocheted plastic mats for the homeless as well.

If you are interested in using up your grocery bags to crochet mats for the homeless, feel free to check out our free plarn tutorial to get started creating your plastic strips. Once you have your plarn made, you can crochet single or even double crochet rows to create your mat!

Crochet Pattern: Tunisian Eyelet Hat

By Candace – March 29th, 2017 Be the first to comment
A Tunisian crochet hat that isn’t seamed and doesn’t require a double-ended hook and use of multiple balls of yarn at a time? Yes, please! The eyelet pattern is sandwiched between sections of Tunisian simple stitch, making it a cinch to follow if you know the techniques.

You will want to be comfortable with Tunisian crochet and crochet in the round, so you can follow the pattern. For extra help with Tunisian crochet in the round, see the tutorial.

Alternative to the Magic Adjustable Ring

By Rachel Choi – March 22nd, 2017 12 Comments

The magic adjustable ring and the adjustable double ring are popular methods for starting a project in the round without having a large hole in the center of the work. However, I know a lot of folks who aren’t fans of those techniques, or have trouble working the adjustable rings, and prefer to crochet the traditional way by starting with chain stitches. In this post I’ll show you a very simple technique that I often use to achieve a closed circle when starting a project in the round with chains.

Crochet Pattern: Dusting Mitt

By Rachel Choi – March 19th, 2017 3 Comments

Ditch those expensive, disposable dusters! Go green and environmentally friendly, by crocheting your very own dusting mitt that can be reused over and over again. Choose an inexpensive, machine washable yarn. Acrylic and cotton yarns both work well to attract and hold dust. The pattern uses a special loopy stitch (photo tutorial included) to create fibers that will get into small crevices and corners. Once it’s dirty and full of dust, shake off the large clumps of dust over a trash can and then toss the mitt into the washing machine. Crochet a few dust mittens so that you always have a clean one to use.
