Hello friends! Thanks so much for stopping by! Welcome to the next installment of Weekend Crochet – Tips & Tricks! Today I will share one of my favorite methods that I have learned as a Crochet Artist. Magic Circle Crochet!
I will be sharing a both a photo tutorial with written description and a video tutorial for each of the Magic Circles. Included are Single Crochet Magic Circle, Half Double Crochet Magic Circle, and Double Crochet Magic Circle methods.
The Magic Circle Foundations are a great technique to give a good foundation for any pattern worked in the round! I love to use a Magic Circle when making hats, dish cloths, and amigurumi patterns to name a few! I highly recommend the Magic Circle method for the first round of the following Free Crochet Patterns so you can get lots of practice with this technique!!
May the Fouth be with You! Happy Star Wars Day, y’all! I wrote this fun little Light Sword Freeze Pop Holder pattern last year in 2017, just before I started this website and blog. It is posted on my old blogger blog, and I will share a link to the Free Pattern below! Other –> Free Crochet Patterns <– can be found here, on my current site Hope you enjoy this quick and easy pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it!
Why post just a link? The popsicle holder comes a bit too close to copyright. I don’t have any ads or other associated ways to make money from the old blog, so there it will stay. Free free to use the pattern and make all the Light Sword Popsicle Holders you want. Be aware that Disney owns the rights to all Star Wars related items. I made these for my kids and they love them! Hope yours will too! 🙂
My Rainbow Crown Crochet Pattern is ready and I am so excited to share this pattern with you! This Crochet Crown Pattern is ON SALE for just 3 days, MAY 2nd – 4th! Read on to get the details!
The Rainbow Crown is by far my most popular Crochet Crown Design! Similar to my Flora Crown, the Rainbow Crown idea came about because of my love of color, but also because I wanted to expand upon my Basic Crochet Crown. I have had numerous requests over the years for the pattern, and it’s finally ready for you! For those who don’t crochet, but still want in on the Rainbow Crown fun, I also sell my finished Rainbow Crowns on Etsy.
The Rainbow Crown has a lot of options for striping patterns, colors, and more so you can customize it to suit anyone! Beyond the Classic Rainbow Crown of 7 colors, you can create yours in an ombré pattern, create a color block crown with 4-5 colors, a striped crown with 2 colors or create a striping pattern of your own! I have also included a detailed photo tutorial, and link to video tutorial for weaving in all those ends and hiding them really well! I hope you love the Rainbow Crown Crochet Pattern as much as I do! 🙂
The Rainbow Crown Pattern is an Easy Crochet Pattern, that can be completed by an advanced beginner and beyond. The color changes take place at the beginning of each round, so even an advanced beginning can make this with my thorough instructions! The Rainbow Crown Pattern, comes in 8 sizes, and includes photo tutorials to help you add the Crown peaks, and detailed photos and written instructions for creating the foundation half double crochet, as well as a link to my Fhdc video tutorial! You can learn to create a foundation hdc tutorial and many more stitches in my Learn to Crochet section. I have many tutorials here on my blog to learn any Crochet Techniques that are new to you, as well as video tutorials on my YouTube Channel! I am also more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the Rainbow Crown pattern, stitches, or techniques! 🙂
I don’t know what Spring looks like where you live, but here in Minnesota spring has looked like a whole lot of snow so far. Not quite the April Showers that bring May Flowers we were all promised in that nursery rhyme long ago… Despite the unseasonable weather, I wanted to design a pattern called April Showers for this month, just for fun. I am so excited to bring you another functional Free Crochet Pattern that just happens to fit the bill. I hope you enjoy making the April Showers Dish Cloths as much as I enjoyed designing them!
The April Showers Pattern started off quite differently in my head. I still have the original idea tucked away for a Rainy Day, (I know – so punny!!) but it wasn’t coming together quite as I had envisioned it in my mind. I made a bunch of round dish cloths a while back, without a pattern, just because we needed some new ones. The stitch pattern on one of them caught my eye and made me think of a sun and sun rays, and so this new idea crept in. 🙂
Congratulations! You are about to learn a stitch beyond the basic stitches in your Learn to Crochet Journey – the Treble Crochet Stitch! Now that you’ve got that half double crochet stitch and that double crochet stitch down, you are ready to ace the Treble Crochet! I think it goes without say that with the Treble Crochet you can crochet even bigger and faster, and create some really interesting projects with just 2 additional steps beyond the double crochet. High five! Read on to follow my easy photo and video tutorials for the Treble Crochet Stitch!
The Learn to Crochet Series was designed to help you learn to crochet the same way I did! Since I was already a busy mom when I learned to crochet, I found it easiest to learn with the help of well written beginner patterns, YouTube videos (like those you will find below!), and beginner stitch books. There are some fantastic programs out there to teach you to crochet, but it was hard for me to find the time and babysitter needed to attend a formal class. So for me, I preferred the “self taught” method.
Other benefits to the self taught method include cost savings, lower pressure, and the ability to learn at your own pace, and in your own time. Crochet is a wonderful creative outlet! I’m not kidding when I say that once I learned to crochet, I never wanted to stop (and I haven’t since)! 🙂 I hope you find as much joy in crochet as I do, but if you don’t, learning this way is the lowest commitment level, and maybe another craft is your jam instead! So, let’s get started and find out!
My newest crochet pattern is ready and I am so happy to share it with you! The Flora Crown Crochet Pattern is ON SALE this week for 3 days ONLY, MARCH 30 – APRIL 1st! Read on to get the details!
The Flora Crown was actually one of my earliest designs! I wanted to embellish my Basic Crochet Crown with a flower and leaves, and so the Flora Crown was born! Back then because I was still very new to designing, I used another designer’s flower and leaves pattern to sell my finished Flora Crowns on Etsy shop. It wasn’t until this year that I finalized a flower and leaf design of my own that I truly loved!
The Flora Crown actually features two sets of flowers and leaves, both with multiple size options, so you can truly customize this beauty! The first set were published as part of my recent release the Crown Ear Warmer, the Rolled Rose and Chain Leaves. The second set was designed exclusively for the Flora Crown Crochet Pattern and I think they are something special! The Button Flower and Leaves that are only available with the Flora Crown are some I’ve been working on for a number of months (off & on) to perfect. I am in definitely very pleased with the final result, and I hope that you are too! 🙂
The Flora Crown Pattern is an Easy Crochet Pattern, that can be completed by an advanced beginner and beyond. The Flora Crown Pattern, comes in 8 sizes, and includes photo tutorials to help you add the Crown peaks, and detailed photos and written instructions for creating the Flowers, Leaves, and other details! You should definitely visit my Learn to Crochet tutorials here on my blog to learn any techniques that are new to you, as well as my YouTube Channel for video tutorials! I am also always available to answer any questions you may have about the Flora Crown pattern, stitches, or techniques! 🙂
Hello Friends! I am so excited to bring you this Free Crochet Pattern! Just in time for those last minute Easter gifts, I have a pretty cute little pattern for you! I hope you enjoy my Tiny Bunny Amigurumi Crochet Pattern as much as my own kids are enjoying them!
The sweet Tiny Bunny Amigurumi is the perfect accompaniment to the Easter Toy Tote pattern! Tiny Bunny would be so hoppy to play in the toy tote with the other toys! (So punny, I know! 😉 ) The Tiny Bunny Amigurumi was inspired by the popularity of my Tiny Dinosaur Amigurumi. I knew I wanted to design another pattern like that one, and Easter was the next big holiday. So it was only natural that this fun Tiny Bunny Amigurumi pattern should be created!
But I couldn’t have done it without the inspiration of my sweet kids! It’s so much fun designing for excited recipients! I hope the sweet kids in your life enjoy the Tiny Bunny Amigurumi too! Don’t crochet? Send me a message through my Contact Page or through my Etsy shop here! I would love to create a Tiny Bunny Amigurumi just for you!
Hey y’all! Is it just me, or is this year flying by even faster than last year?? I can’t believe it’s almost spring! In honor of this exciting time of year, I am so excited to bring you another fun and functional (my fave combination 😉 ) Free Crochet Pattern! I hope you enjoy making the Easter Toy Tote Crochet Pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it!
The Easter Toy Tote pattern was inspired by a need I saw with my younger 2 kiddos. My 6 year old wants to bring a set of dolls to play with everywhere we go. I happily encourage this because then she can pretty well occupy herself, and everybody wins! My 3 year old needs a variety of items to keep him happy, and this is a nice way to bring a variety of small items along, without weighing down my purse! 😉
I am so excited about this amazing new Crochet Pattern y’all! The sweet Cookies and Milk Crochet Pattern is ON SALE this week for 3 days ONLY, FEBRUARY 23-25! Read on to get the details!
I originally designed the Cookies portion of this pattern for my youngest son, for his second birthday last year! He loved then (and still does) to play with play food and his play kitchen set. This is such a fun set at any age though, I can attest that my older kids enjoy playing with these just as much as my now 3 year old does! If you don’t crochet, I do offer the Cookies and Milk set for sale in my Etsy shop.
I love that this fun play food set can be for boys and girls alike! So many ways to customize this pattern and make it your own. Some of the details of this delicious pattern are created using hand embroidery and surface crochet. The Crochet Cookies and Milk Pattern includes many photo tutorials to help you with these techniques for adding the chocolate chips, sprinkles, and icing and more! My Cookies and Milk set is an Easy Crochet Pattern and I am definitely available to help you with any part of the pattern if you need it! I really love how this fun pattern turned out, and I hope that you will too!
Welcome to my Crochet Decrease Stitches Guide! I created this Guide to common Decrease stitches to accompany my Cookies and Milk Crochet Pattern. More details about this pattern are below, or you can read all about it in the Blog Article HERE.
You will find some of these crochet decrease stitches more often than others. Sc2tog is most common, and you will find it frequently used in making amigurumi and other toys. The Hdc and Dc Crochet Decrease Stitches may be found in patterns such as Ripple or Chevon Blankets, and in hats worked from the bottom up, just to name a few. Read on below for the tutorials!
