Quick Little Bag

Quick Little Bag ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Quick Little Bag
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This Quick Little Bag is just that, and it came about due to a lack of pockets! I was at a trade show and realized most of my outfits for the long weekend had no pockets. I had a big shoulder bag, but my phone and business cards kept getting lost in it. So I grabbed some Red Heart Unforgettable and a crochet hook and whipped up this bag. Problem solved! I made a new sample for the pattern that is a little thinner, longer, and has a flap. Enjoy!

ELK Studio Round Up

This week I am very pleased to share patterns from ELK Studio ~ handcrafted crochet designs with you. ELK Studio is owned and run by Kathy Lashley, a very talented and wonderful woman. Kathy is a southern girl in the best of ways! Her designs often show her country roots, making them feel very warm and comforting. She uses wonderful stitch patterns to bring interest to her designs. It’s no surprise that her designs are very popular.

Kathy is currently hosting a Christmas CAL, and it’s awesome! You can find the info about the CAL on her blog, here. You can also join her Facebook group to share your photos and chat with others about the CAL. There are 2 patterns in the CAL, a cowl and matching hat, and both patterns are written for worsted weight and bulky yarn, so you can choose!

Stitch ‘N’ Pitch

Hello there! A few weekends ago I attended the 2015 Stitch ‘N’ Pitch at a NY Mets game. The Stitch ‘N’ Pitch is an event that happens at various pro baseball games around the country in association with TNNA (The National Needlearts Association). The Stitch ‘N’ Pitch that I attended was also sponsored by Lion Brand Yarn. They gave all the attendees a goodie bag with some yarn so that everyone could make some afghan squares for Warm Up America, a wonderful organization that makes and collects hand made blankets for those in need.

It was tons of fun! I went with Amy of Stitchin’ Mommy. We met there, as she lives in Queens, and I live in NJ. I miss living in Queens, it was so much easier to go play in Manhattan, and to go to fun events without having to drive and park.

Anyway, I drove to the game. The bus from here only runs every 2 hours on the weekend, and would require a transfer to the subway as well. By the time all the tickets are purchased, it is pretty much the same cost as tolls and parking, so I decided I would rather drive. Public transit is not as affordable or convenient coming from NJ. I got in at noon for a 1:10 game, and I still ended up parking pretty far away. I snapped a photo of where I was parked so I would be able to find Thor again after the game.

Once I got to the gate, I met up with Amy and we went in. As we arrived, we stumbled upon [click to continue…]

Fall Cowgirl

Fall Cowgirl ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Fall Cowgirl
Free Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Fall Cowgirl is a cowl with a small shawl attached. It is a crochet version of my popular Spring Cowgirl knit pattern. This fun little neck warmer can be worn as an accessory to your fall outfits, and is made to neatly tuck into most coats. The size of the bottom portion is large enough to keep you warm and tuck into even a v~neck coat, but not so large as to be uncomfortable when it is tucked in. Of course, you can also wear it on top of your coat to show off your lovely crochet skills! Fall Cowgirl is made with 2 balls of Crystal Palace Mini Mochi.

Kim Guzman Round Up

Many of you know of Kim Guzman as the Tunisian Crochet Queen. She certainly is one of the top Tunisian crochet designers out there, but did you know she has more “regular” crochet patterns then Tunisian? AND she designs knit patterns as well. Really, there aren’t many designers out there as skilled as Kim.

On top of that, Kim is a very kind and helpful individual. She is often answering questions from crocheters and designers. Kim has helped me along in my career more times than I could count. She is an amazing woman, and I am so happy to share some of her beautiful designs with you here.
