The Beginning of my Knitting Adventure

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.

Free Knit Look-alike Crochet Patterns

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 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!

Caron Cake Jellyfish Free Crochet Pattern

 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.

Kindergarten Graduation Cap Crochet Pattern

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.

Free Crochet Bear Handband Pattern and Tutorial

  

Headbands are all the rage right now for my 5-year-old daughter. She loves to coordinate her headbands with her different outfits and wears one almost every single day. This past weekend we visited our local zoo. A few days beforehand my daughter mentioned that she wished that she had some sort of animal headband. A light bulb went off for me (a crocheted one, of course) and I knew I could whip something together for her.
