The Cast Iron Handle Cover pattern was inspired by my sadly burned and endlessly dirty handle covers. We only cook with Cast Iron Pans in our house, but I found that the covers I was given were not a good fit and were NOT easy to clean! Crochet Queen to the rescue y’all!
Hey y’all! This summer is really flying by! Before it winds to a close, I am so excited to bring you another fun and functional (my fave combination 😉 ) Free Crochet Pattern! I know you’re going to love making the DC Dice Bag and Tray Crochet Pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it!
The DC Dice Bag pattern was inspired by a problem I found when playing board and dice games. We love games in our house, but I find we are forever either chasing dice across the floor, or they knock over pieces when rolled on the board. Add to this that my 11 year old son has a rather extensive collection of dice for D&D play.
Happy National Donut Day! In honor of this day, I am so excited to bring you another fun and functional Free Crochet Pattern! I hope you enjoy making some Delicious Donut Dish Cloth as much as I enjoyed designing the pattern!
I created the Donut Dish Cloth Pattern in honor of National Donut Day, which is the first Friday of June. The day honors both the lovely and delicious fried doughnut and those who served in the US Military in the first World War. The short version is that donuts and coffee, and other baked good were distributed to soldiers at canteens at the war front to help improve the soldiers’ morale. These were handed out by Salvation Army volunteers who became known as Doughnut Dollies, and the resultant Chicago Salvation Army fundraiser led to the creation of National Donut Day. You can read more about the history of this day on wikipediea <– right here! So now you know! 🙂
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! 🙂
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!
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! 😉
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.

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!
