Spring Cleaning! Time to use up some of that scrap yarn to clean out your stash. I have collected some wonderful patterns for you that will use those small balls of yarn you have tucked away.

Scrap-It-Up-Round-Up-Jessie-At-Home

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

1) Free Crochet Pattern…Scrap Love Scarf ~ Fiber Flux
This scarf is full of scrappy goodness. A simple vertical granny stripe shows off the many colors of all of your beautiful yarn leftovers. Take a trip to your yarn stash and work up a scrappy scarf of your own. Stash busting is a wonderful thing! Instructions included if you are using a different yarn weight too.

2) Japanese flower motif Crochet Pattern ~ Daisy Cottage Designs
If you’ve followed my blog and seen my crochet patterns for any length of time, you’re well aware with the fact that I love to crochet flowers. I’ve seen a few Japanese flower motifs recently and fell in love. I decided to whip up one of my own, and after a few trial and error attempts, I came up with one that I’m pleased with. I think it would be beautiful to make an entire afghan out of these flowers, but it’s probably more likely that I’ll use them as a stack of coasters on the coffee table. Either way, they’re beautiful and I’m going to enjoy them.

3) Quick Scrap Yarn Slip Stitch Bracelet ~ Jessie At Home
This bracelet is a great way to use up those little balls of yarn you have tucked away! They also make great last minute gifts. You can even choose your team colors to show your spirit. These bracelets work great as wrist warmers as well. You can make them as skinny or wide as you want, and any size you need! I find them very simple to make, but slip stitch crochet is considered an intermediate skill, hence the intermediate listing on this pattern. Enjoy!

4) Tag It Free Crochet Pattern ~ Moogly
Summer activities are in full swing here in Iowa, and with the long days spent outdoors there are two things a kid needs – plenty of sunscreen and drinking water! My youngest picked out a fresh new water bottle, but I wanted to make sure he’d be able to tell which one is his, and I had only 15 minutes before we had to go… so I whipped up this!

5) Net Yarn Hair Puff ~ Jessie At Home

Have you made something other then a scarf out of the ever~popular net yarn and have some left over with no clue what to do with it? I have the perfect solution for you. You can use it to make a fun, fluffy, puffy, bouncy hair band! All you need is a plain hair band and two or more yards of net yarn.

6) Crochet Daisy Granny Squares ~ The Stitchin’ Mommy
…when the weather gets warmer, I like to use my yarn for making things around the house like these Daisy Granny Square Coasters. Not only are they cute and perfect for spring, but they are also easily washable which I love. I can be a little crazy when it comes to putting a cup on my table with nothing underneath. My kitchen table is so hard to clean so I always use a coaster. If you’re anything like me, then this is the pattern for you! Keep in mind that if you don’t care for coasters, these Daisy Granny Squares would make an adorable blanket.

7) Vintage Button Re~Make ~ Jessie At Home
There is something about a vintage button that just says “make me a flower pin!” Or maybe it’s just the voices…

8) Dotted Headband ~ Jessie At Home
Here is a pretty little way to keep your hair back as the warm weather approaches. So many color options!! Have fun with it.

Wednesday Round Up 4/16/14 ~ Charted Crochet Patterns

| Crochet, Round Up

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. This helps keep the free content coming. Thank you.


I know some of you out there love to have charts with your crochet patterns. This round up is just for you! It features nine free crochet patterns with charts. Enjoy!

Charted-Crochet-Round-Up

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

1) Personalized Baby Afghan ~ by Kim Guzman
This afghan pattern is the most popular design on my website. It has been made hundreds of times by internet users just like you! Myself, I have crocheted it at least forty times for family and friends.

2) Crochet Pot Holders … 2 Free Crochet Potholder Patterns (also make great nonstick pan protectors!) ~ by Petals to Picots
I made some new crochet pot holders for my kitchen that match those pretty crochet edged tea towels that I shared with you recently. As you can see I stayed with my red and white color scheme too. I love the simple and classic design of these pot holders. And best of all … did you know you can even use them in between your nonstick pots and pans to protect them from getting scratched up?!

3) Holiday Headband – free crochet pattern ~ by Oombawka Design Crochet
Here is a simple and very quick headband to make – I’ve included instructions for all sizes – and you can use any embellishment you wish – I have used my Holiday Bow Pattern to embellish Darla’s as we still have a few Holiday parties to attend this year –

4) Magic Spike Mandala ~ by Moogly
Crochet mandalas are everywhere right now! They’re beautiful and fun to make, ranging from the sublimely simple to the excruciatingly complex. I was inspired to design my own, but I wanted it to have a practical purpose too. And a reader request for coasters and placemats was just the spark I needed! The Magic Spike Mandala was born!

5) Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf ~ by Moogly
The Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf is indeed the stuff dreams are made of. Dreams of bright, bold hues, ultra modern color blocking, super chunky scarves and cowls, and infinite possibilities!

6) Toddler Cardigan Charted Pattern ~ by My Hobby is Crochet
The Little Girl’s Cardigan with short sleeves it is one of my most popular designs. I have seen so many beautiful toddler cardigans made by fellow crocheters using this pattern! In one solidcolor, or using different colors for the yoke and body part, the crocheters had always great results.

7) Stars and Stripes Bunting ~ 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. There is a video and a chart for the stars as well plenty of photos. Enjoy!

8) Heart Granny Square Crochet Pattern ~ by Petals to Picots
I’m a sucker for granny squares and can’t seem to stay away from them for very long. There is something about the this timeless and classic square that just draws me in. I thought it would be fun to have a heart granny square to include in some of my Valentine’s crafts. I worked up a bunch and finally got it the way I like. Here is my heart granny square crochet pattern to share with you all …

9) Faded Ripple ~ by Jessie At Home
This ripple pattern puts a new twist on a classic afghan crochet pattern. This stitch pattern works for afghans/throws, or wraps, or scarves, or a variety of other projects. Faded ripple is a great stitch to use with stripes, as it gives a pretty detail to color changes. It 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.

Adult-Sun-Hats-Round-Up-on-Jessie-At-Home

Here comes the sun!! Keep yourself protected with a fabulous sun hat! Here are a few in both crochet and knit. To keep your little ones safe, check out this Spring & Summer Hats for Little Ones round up over at My Hobby Is Crochet!

1) Southern and Sassy by Kathy Lashley ~ Are you ready to create Southern and Sassy and not only look elegant but feel that way too? A beautiful hat perfectly made by you to keep the sun from your face during the day and look stunning for the beachside party at night. You can use Sinfonia yarn which is 100% mercerized cotton, so the hat is light weight and cool. Using quality products like the millinery wire enables you to make a well-crafted hat where the brim will stay in place as adjusted.

2) Shine On Sun Hat by Jessie At Home ~ Here is a summer sun hat for you to make and enjoy! Keep safe and be fashionable, all at the same time. The slight stretch of the yarn helps keep the hat in place, even in the wind, and gives the brim a lovely look. I named this hat Shine On, as in Shine On You Crazy Diamond (by Pink Floyd) because of the diamonds. A sun hat with diamonds seemed to have no other possible name!

3) The Summer Elegance Edition Pineapple Lace Sunhat from The Crochet Lounge ~ With this delicious Pineapple Lace Sunhat and all the Pineapple Lace Blitz posts to ensue, I have, once again, embarked on the hat designing journey that is going to soar with personal growth — yes, indeed, everything we face vs. avoid is a point of growth! 😀 Hooray for free crochet sunhat patterns as this hat debuts in The Crochet Lounge – The Summer Elegance Edition.

4) Azealia by Kelly Menzies ~ This charming wide brimmed hat is worked in the round but don’t let that put you off. This is the perfect pattern to learn this great way of knitting items using circular needles. With the simple stitches and the relatively short pattern you’ll get the hang of knitting in the round in no time, and you’ll have the lovely Azealia to show off your new found skill!

5) Adult Spring or Easter Hat Shell Stitch Cotton Hat with Spring Blossoms by Lorene of Cre8tion Crochet ~ This lightweight adult spring or Easter hat is made with 100% cotton and is a perfect choice for Spring weather. This hat is created with dc and dc shell stitches. The brim has just a slight ruffle and the flowers are a sweet addition.

6) Windansea by Kristi Porter ~ Here is a fun knit sun hat that comes as a free bonus pattern on Amazon. No purchase necessary!

It’s coming…Craft Fair Season!!! Let’s get ready together. Here is a round up of free patterns to make craft fair goods.

I have broken down the list into three categories by how long they take, less then 30 minutes, half an hour to an hour, and 1 ~2 hours. To see the patterns, just click on the photos!

In the spirit of sharing, if you make any of these items to sell at craft fairs, share the photos in our Facebook group! Also, if you make any patterns from a Ravelry link, then it is always nice if you make a project page and link it to the pattern, it is a great way to say “thanks” to the designer and get them some more attention.

less then 30 minutes
