The 4th of July is coming up so quickly! I initially wanted to work up a much larger project inspired by the 4th of July, but as my daughter saw me working she begged to use what I had already worked up as a headband. My daughter is the QUEEN of headbands, so if this has been a huge hit with her I am sure there are many others out there who will enjoy it.
I know, I know. This is a crochet blog. I’ve been crocheting for years and it is most definitely my favorite fiber craft, but some months ago I taught myself how to knit. At first I wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t very great at it and I felt discouraged every time I picked up my needles. At first I was sure that knitting wasn’t a good fit for me, until one day my sister introduced me to Twitch.tv.
It has been about a week since I’ve last updated my blog. I am usually crocheting on a daily basis, but I must admit that lately I haven’t been crocheting at all… I’ve been knitting! I’ve only recently learned to knit and have been participating in a knit-along. I am anxious to finish my knit-along shawl so it has been my main focus lately. I wanted to take some time to give you all a blog post packed full of amazing and FREE patterns today, so since I’ve got knitting on the brain, I compiled a list of knit-alike crochet patterns.
Father’s Day is less than a week away. I put together a nice collection of Mother’s Day inspired crochet patterns, so I thought I’d continue the tradition and put together a Father’s Day inspired collection as well. I brainstormed to think of items that a father would love to be gifted and then searched for crochet patterns to create them. I hope you enjoy these patterns. Please make sure to stop by and thank all of these wonderful artists for sharing their amazing talents with us!
EVERYONE has already heard of a Caron Cake, right? If not, a simple Google search will open a very wide Caron Cake door for you. As opposed to coming wrapped up as a skein, a ‘cake’ of yarn is wound much differently and (in my opinion) is much easier to work with. Caron Cakes have gorgeous color changes and a few different color options to choose from. There are a few different brands of yarn that offer a product very similar to the Caron Cake, but so far the CCs are my absolute fave.
The count down to summer is officially here! Can you believe spring will only be around for less than three more weeks? I’ve enjoyed the warmer weather and all of the colorful crochet projects it has inspired. I wanted to share the spring inspiration I’ve witnessed with fellow artists, so I took a bit of time to throw together this beautiful collection of FREE spring inspired crochet patterns. I hope you enjoy them! Feel free to leave a comment below to let me know which pattern is your favorite.
Have you all seen the BEAUTIFUL crocheted cocoon cardigan that is all the rage right now?! This gorgeous cardigan was designed by Annoo Crochet Designs. The cardigan is essentially one large granny square worked up with worsted weight yarn and a large crochet hook- super easy!
It’s almost June! Can you believe this school year has almost come to an end?! I recently shared my free crochet pattern for my Kindergarten graduation cap so I thought I would put together a fun collection of free graduation crochet patterns for graduates of all ages.
I can’t believe this school year is already coming to an end. I remember the beginning of the year; the fear of letting my child go. I was so anxious to see my 5-year-old start her first year of school. Now with only 14 days left of Kindergarten, the anxious feelings have turned into excitement and my daughter is almost a first grader.
