Baby-Blanket-And-Booties-Round-Up

In honor of the large number of my friends having babies right now, the next 4 weeks of Round Ups will be baby themed. I will do my best to make each one a mix of knit and crochet, free and paid. This first round up will be baby blankets and booties!

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Bunny Lovey ~ Free Crochet Pattern by The Stitchin’ Mommy
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working on a few new items for my shop and also trying to de-stash some of my yarn. I’ve been able to donate a ton of yarn that I felt that I wouldn’t use to two charities that are really in need of yarn. I’ve been crocheting up a storm and I’ve been writing everything down but now I finally have a chance to post one of the projects I’ve been working on…this adorable bunny lovey.

2) DC Blankies ~ Free Crochet Pattern from mainlycrochet.com
This is one of the free patterns offered from mainlycrochet.com, but there are quite a few wonderful baby patterns (and many other types of patterns as well) with a subscription to mainlycrochet.com, including several of mine which will be added to the site in the not to distant future.
Here are pictures of some of the baby patterns included in the subscription.

mainlycrochet

3) cozy tosies ~ Knit Pattern by Heidi Yates
Simple, easy to read knit pattern with lots of pictures. Can be made with novelty or regular yarns to fit newborns. These are always the hit of baby showers! People just love them on teeny feet.

4) Honey Sweet Baby Blanket ~ Free Tunisian Crochet pattern by Kim Guzman

5) Sock Monkey Baby Booties ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Cre8tion Crochet
These adorable sock monkey baby booties are quick and easy to create. They would make an adorable gift for a new baby.

6) X-tra Sport Baby Blanket ~ Free Crochet Pattern by CrochetNCrafts
At last, I present to you my X-tra Sport Baby Blanket. (with photo tutorial!)

7) Rainbow Dash Baby Blanket ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Beatrice Ryan Designs
This Free Crochet Pattern is an adorable baby blanket that is bright and cheery…It can be made using one or more colors to get the effect you desire. Great texture front and back too!

8) Owlet Lovey ~ Free Crochet Pattern by JessieAtHome
I’ve always found lovies rather adorable. The mix of blankie and stuffie is just too cute for words. So, without further ado, here is my little tutorial for a crocheted owlet lovey.

9) Loopy Love Blanket ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Tamara Kelly (Moogly)
The Loopy Love Blanket is so fun to make! The pattern is easy to memorize, the stitches just fly by, and the end result looks way more complicated than it should. And in 3 colors, you can change colors every row and never have to cut the yarn!
~and~
Loopy Love Newborn Baby Booties ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Tamara Kelly (Moogly)
After sharing the Loopy Love Blanket and matching Loopy Love Hats, I had a request for matching booties! And so, I took on the challenge of creating my very first baby booties pattern – the Loopy Love Newborn Baby Booties!

Love-Round-Up

Today is my 9th wedding anniversary, so it seemed right to theme tonight’s round up: “love”

I asked some of my designer friends for patterns with the theme of love, and this is what they sent me.

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Heart Coasters, Appliques, or Bunting by JessieAtHome

This is a quick and simple crochet heart that has many uses. I like to sew them onto a piece of felt to make coasters. I use a sewing machine and stitch along the sc boarder. They can also be used as decorations on hats, scarves, skirts, purses, or whatever makes you happy!

2) Crochet heart ring box by Maz Kwok’s Designs
Put your precious jewelry in this crochet heart ring box, show off the perfect and unique crafting love especially when giving it as a gift.

3) Encircled Heart Coaster by Kim Guzman
This pretty coaster was designed by Kim “In Loving Memory of My Very Dear Friend Diane Morrissey”

4) Layered Daisy in a Heart by Cre8tion Crochet
This Daisy in a Heart can be used any time of the year as a applique for a hat or scarf, on a baby blanket or even as a pin.

5) Conversation Hearts Dog Collar by Posh Pooch Designs
As I was cleaning out some 20 + year old Crochet magazines and books, Some from my Mother-in- law and some from many different Garage sales, a piece off paper fell out. ( I Love old vintage crochet patterns) On it was a hand written crochet pattern. No pictures, all it said was “Lil’ Heart Pattern”. It was written in pencil, so the pic I tried to take of it, did not come out well. But it looked so easy, I just had to try it…And I loved it so much I wanted to share it!

6) Queen of Hearts Crown by Dearest Debi

7) Nothing says I love you like…. A flower that never dies! by Crochet Chic
SO Maybe it’s that I am LOVE with this awesome guy but I am thinking of all sorts of Lovey dovey type things so watch out…. even after February 14th I will be posting all sorts of fun love and great gifts for your man patterns!

Video-Tutorial-Round-Up

Good evening my friends! This muggy Wednesday night I have put together a round up of crochet patterns that include video tutorials. Enjoy!

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.
1) Stars and Stripes Bunting ~ Free Pattern by Jessie At Home
Show off your patriotic pride with this quick and easy Stars and Stripes Bunting! The stars are motifs that can be made in a solid color; in a red, white, and blue variegated yarn; or you can even make each of the 3 rounds a different color: one red, one white, and one blue. The stripes come in at the ribbon holding the stars together.

2) Bright Stripes Crochet Beanie ~ Free Pattern by KT and the Squid
The other day I made the kids some matching hats. My son is obsessed with this bright green color so he loves it and The Squid is always happy to get a new hat. This pattern was so simple I’m happy to share it here with you all. *the video with this one is in Italian, but it is still helpful to see. 🙂

3) Emma Skater Skirt ~ Pattern by Jessie At Home
Emma is a playful skater skirt inspired by a UK reality star, and the lovely ice skating ladies of the 2014 Olympics. This pattern features my unique less~bulky crochet waistband and a decorative border which can be made in another color for a bit of variety! The fun raised stripes down the skirt make the increases very easy.

4) Simple Chunky Cable Crochet Slippers ~ Free Pattern by Moogly
The Simple Chunky Cable Crochet Slippers…only an evening to make, fit both narrow and wide feet sizes 6 – 11, and use just one skein of yarn…But making the cable portion has tripped some people up, and they asked for a video. So here’s how to make the Simple Chunky Cable Crochet Slippers!

5) Flower Hexagon Granny How-To ~ Free Pattern by Jessie At Home
In my search for a Granny Hexagon to make blankets for my girls, I just couldn’t find one that I really LOVED. Then I realized that there were some gorgeous crocheted flowers with six sides, and I could make a hex from one of those. So this pattern was born.

6) Pretty in Pink ~ Free Pattern by Rebeckah’s Treasures
This free crochet pattern has everything you need to crochet serval sweet outfits for children fashion dolls like Kelly in no time at all.

7) Happy Handle Coffee Cozy ~ Free Pattern by Moogly
The Happy Handle Coffee Cozy makes a great gift – fun to make and use, and sized so a gift card slips right in the handle to put an extra big smile on their face!

Round-Up-Stripes

Stripes!!! Stripes are fun!! So fun that I had a hard time keeping this round up from overflowing! The majority of these patterns are free, but there are a few sale patterns included as well.

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Simple Rainbow Bracelet ~ Free Crochet Pattern from Jessie At Home

2) Butterfly Garden Afghan ~ $4.99 Crochet Pattern from Crafting Friends Design
Looking for a baby shower gift? This is a beautiful afghan anyone would love to receive.

3) Rainbow Dash Baby Blanket ~ Free Crochet Pattern from Beatrice Ryan Designs
This Free Crochet Pattern is an adorable baby blanket that is bright and cheery… It can be made using one or more colors to get the effect you desire. Great texture front and back too!

4) Easy Baby Blanket ~ Free Crochet Pattern from Daisy Cottage Designs
Doesn’t it seem like it’s the season for baby showers? I love going to those fun events and getting ready to welcome new life. Whenever I have time, I love to make a homemade gift. Whether it’s a baby blanket or a crocheted “lovey,” it makes me feel like it’s something a child might treasure forever.

5) Joseph’s Puff Stitch Blanket ~ Free Crochet Pattern from Jessie At Home
Here is a fun puff stitch pattern I designed for a baby blanket for a friend of mine. By working the puff stitches around the posts of the row below, they create little polka dots that drop down into the previous color. The texture of the little dots are fun for little fingers as well!

6) Striped Stash Buster Blanket ~ Free Crochet Pattern from Simply Collectible
When I started this stash buster blanket, I wanted something handsome for my son’s room. He’d just turned 4 and was ready to graduate from the toddler decor and I was definitely excited about that.

7) Fanny Skirt ~ $4.00 Crochet Pattern from Jessie At Home
Fanny is a fan stitch and double crochet skirt with a slight flare. The top of the skirt is made of 6 panels of fan stitch alternating with 6 wedges of double crochet. The panels/wedges are made one at a time and connected to their neighbors as they are made, so only one yarn is being worked at a time; no multiple bobbins or skeins being worked at once! The bottom is ringed with alternating bands of double crochet and fan stitch and then finished off with a lacey trim stitch.

8) Candy Twist Bag ~ $4.99 Crochet Pattern from Glamour 4 You
The Candy Twist Bag is a great bag to make a child for a Halloween Trick or Treat bag. Or for anyone that likes Candy, it can be used as a purse all year round!

9) Forest girl hood ~ free crochet pattern from A Crafter xD
Pixie hat style for adult hmm… but I made a hood : D

10) Fat Striped Bag – Purse Crochet Pattern ~ Free Crochet Pattern from Posh Pooch Designs
This Bag is the perfect shape and size to take to the beach, pool, picnic, on a trip, or even to the farmers market.

11) Crochet Striped Dishcloths ~ Free Crochet Pattern from The Stitchin’ Mommy
A few weeks ago my mom asked me to make her some custom dishcloths to go with the decor in her kitchen. She loves fruit and has A LOT of bright colored fruit-themed items in her kitchen. Instead of making her fruit shaped dishcloths, I decided to make her dishcloths that were more practical but still had pops of color.

12) Toddler Ribbed Shell Top ~ Free Crochet Pattern from Cre8tion Crochet
This super sweet girls shell ribbed tee is perfect for the upcoming spring weather. Perfect, worn over a tank or tee. You can even add extra shell rows on the arm to make it a long sleeve.

13) Star Divine Wristers ~ Free Crochet Pattern from The Country Willow
Cute, stripey, fingerless mitts.

Wednesday Round Up 5/28/14 ~ Spring/Summer Wraps

Round-Up-Warm-Weather-Wraps Even in the warm months, there are evening when a cool breeze blows through. Here is a collection of 6 patterns to take the chill of those evenings. Enjoy!

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1)Chevron Lace Wrap ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Moogly It’s only August, but already the sunsets are earlier, the temps are dropping a little lower, and Autumn is surely on its way. Fend off the chill of overactive AC now and cool temps later with this Chevron Lace Wrap! Made with fingering weight cotton it’s a not-too-warm shawl in the fall and spring, and a warm breathable scarf in the winter.

2) Down the “Rocky Road” to Pick Spring Flowers – Crochet Shawl Pattern by Glamour 4 You This fabulous shawl is the winning shawl from the 1st round of The Battle of the Stitches.

3) Extended Ripple ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home This ripple pattern adds a lacey look to the classic ripple. This is really more of a stitch pattern; however, there are several finished project photos with details to help you with ideas. This pattern can be used with just about any size yarn and the coordinating hook. I do not recommend novelty yarns, as the textures of the yarn can make the stitches difficult or just take away from the look of the stitch pattern.

4)Zinnia Flower Shawl ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Fiber Flux The Zinnia Flower Shawl is a breath of fresh sunshine, crocheted in bright and happy colors. This triangle shawl is worked in an all over V stitch and finished off with a super simple edging. Perfect when you need a little something extra to throw over your shoulders.

5) Abstract Shawl ~ Free Crochet pattern by Posh Pooch Designs I am totally in love with this Shawl and how the pattern turned out, and especially this yarn. I used Red heart Boutique Treasure ABSTRACT. It is amazingly soft and light. The colors gently flow from tone to tone and shade to shade. The light weight yarn and the Long V Stitches are perfect for a Spring Shawl.

6) Natalie Crochet Net Shawl and Wrap ~ Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home This net shawl or wrap is lightweight and perfect for a spring or summer accessory. Rather than using the popular net yarn to make ruffles or a scarf, it connects the yarn top to bottom to create an airy fabric. The shawl is half circle in shape, and the wrap is a bit more stretched out, becoming longer and thinner than the shawl.
