Crochet: Animal Toy
A cute little penguin, perfect as a key chain for your backpack, or to decorate a night table. Little whisps of yellow brings a bit a cheer to a cold time of the year.
Crochet: Animal Toy
This crochet pattern includes instructions for four little critters: Bunny, Kitty, Turtle, and Octopus.
Crochet: Animal Toy
A cute little elephant to keep you company and entertain for hours. His ears are floppy, but stand up proudly and his cute little tail is the best. Add more features like eye lashes and toes, perhaps a hat, and you’ve got a versatile friend.
Crochet: Blanket - Other
This was a labor of love and it was well worth it. A happy pattern of triangles that form hexagons that forms a lovely rectangular blanket. Thick, warm, beautiful, a wonderful project to keep your lap warm through winter.
Crochet: Toy Plant
Halloween is coming and what’s more Halloween then pumpkins? Halloween pumpkins!
Crochet: Toy Plant
A great project for Halloween! Make a bunch and spread them around for a fun decoration!
Crochet: Animal Toy
I started off small! This baby lizard is a cutie once completed. His size ranges based on the yarn, but anywhere from 3.5 to 4.5 inches is a good guess. I used the Loops&Threads Impeccable brand yarn to make this little guy, but any worsted weight would be great.
Crochet: Animal Toy
Funny story, when putting the crochet lizard pattern together that you see now, I started with a really tiny lizard. And then made a larger one (new pattern! sigh), and then a larger one, and finally got to this one. But then the feet were all wrong and I made another one with different feet; and the snout was too long (made it look like a dinos...
Crochet: Animal Toy
This cute little critter was a labor of love. I’ve now made three and am very happy with the pattern, but please please let me know if you find errors. It’s for intermediate crocheters for sure as you need to carry two colors at once and work in the round.
Crochet: Softies - Other
A little pattern for your viewing pleasure. I haven’t made it in a bit, so please please let me know if you find any typos. Both the pumpkin and ghost end up being around 3-4 inches in height.
Crochet: Animal Toy
This was a labor of love as I made it for my hubby for his birthday. I used pictures of river otters as my inspiration. I used three colors to make the Otter - impeccable loops and threads in chocolate, light taupe, and heather, but really any brown, light brown, and cream will work. You don’t need a full skein for the light brown and crea...
Crochet: Animal Toy
This pattern is for the pony pictured and the pony’s carrot (ponies get hungry you know).
Crochet: Containers
An adorable home decor item - a crochet candy dish!
Crochet: Animal Toy
This pattern was originally published by Fairfield.
Crochet: Baby Blanket
This pattern is for a 40x40 inch baby blanket. I made the blanket pictured with pinks and grays, but this would look equally cute in greens, blues, purples… you name it, it’ll look cute.
Crochet: Throw
A great couch blanket! I was playing with different hues of purple and blue and there you are. I hope you like!!
Crochet: Throw, Baby Blanket
This pattern is made using multiple colors and crochet-in-the-round to create eye catching spirals. I love the yellow on aqua color, with gray to soften the look, but any color combination would look equally lovely.
Crochet: Baby Blanket
A sweet blanket for a boy or a girl.
Crochet: Bedspread
A labor of love for sure! I love waterfalls and wouldn’t it be lovely to cuddle up under your very own waterfall blanket and listen to the rain fall?
Crochet: Doll
This is what I think of when I ponder what my friendly Leprechaun might look like. St. Patrick’s Day is coming and so it will be time to celebrate and I’m hoping this little guy will be brightening up my desk this year.
Crochet: Doll, Animal Toy
Hi! I made this crochet monkey using the amigurumi technique of crocheting in the round.
Crochet: Doll
This is an amigurumi pattern for a crochet alien. As seen in the pictures, the alien can be easily customized and there are a lot of yarn options that would work well. You can also increase the yarn weight, which will result in a larger alien.
Crochet: Baby Blanket
This is a graphgan pattern for a crochet pumpkin stroller blanket. Great for Halloween parades and parties. Add a pumpkin hat and your little guy/gal has a great costume to show off with out worry of them getting chilly.
Crochet: Throw
This is a graphgan designed using the Michael’s Brand Impeccable Solid colors as my template. You can use any color/yarn combo that you like, but the finished size may vary due to the yarn and hook size you chose.
Crochet: Animal Toy
This is a great pattern for using up leftover yarn. I used a combination of Worsted/4ply yarns with a size g hook and my finished ladybug is approximately 3.5 x 3 inches.
Crochet: Bedspread
This is a graphgan pattern for a twin size bed. I designed the pattern based on the Michael’s Impeccable brand yard, but you can use the yarn of your choice. Just keep in mind that the blanket may end up smaller or larger than estimated.
Crochet: Clutch
This pattern was made using Michael’s brand impeccable yarn. It’s a worsted weight yarn size 4 medium. The buttons were made by my sister who has an Etsy shop - her husband is a potter and she carves figures and was nice enough to make me some buttons (I helped paint them!). She has promised to make more and post them to her shop so ...
Crochet: Bedspread
This pattern was designed using Michael’s worsted weight yarn and DC stitches. 2 rows of 3 DC should be 1” square.
Crochet: Chart
This one took me a bit, but I really like the end result. The color combinations can be adjusted to match your taste, but I like having the two lighter rows and the one darker to make it pop more. I use Michael’s brand yarn for my template, but you can use your favorite yarn, it just may end up a litter smaller or bigger than 80” x 5...
Crochet: Throw
I thought this would be a fun one as a throw blanket for a couch. And the green and blue look really cool together. Any yarn will do with the recommended hook size on the yarn label. But you might crochet a few rows of double crochet to see how close to the gauge you are (3 stitches x 2 rows = 1”x1”).
Crochet: Throw
I used Michael’s Impeccable yarn for my color palette and gauge. You can use whichever yarn you prefer, but it may end up being a bit smaller or larger than the 57” x 54” predicted. This size should be perfect as a throw for cold nights.
Crochet: Bedspread
This is a graphgan and is worked with double crochet. I used Michael’s yarn when picking my colors, but you can pick whichever yarn is your preference.
Crochet: Animal Toy
This pattern is for a small size baby whale with a cute tale that turns up. It is a downloadable PDF and includes a key, yarn and hook recommendation, and picture of finished item.
Crochet: Animal Toy
This pattern uses single crochet stitch and each row is worked in the round (Amigurumi). I used safety eyes for the face. The arms move freely so you can have him hug or wave and he sits upright without falling over - making him perfect for hanging on your desk.
Crochet: Animal Toy
Crochet fish in colors of your choice. Great for using up some left over yarn. This guy has a big mouth (great for nibbling fingers) that will keep your kids giggling. You can also pinch the mouth together like he’s talking which also contributes to the giggling.
Crochet: Animal Toy
Crochet Amigurumi mouse. The mouse in the picture was crocheted using multicolor acrylic yarn, type 4. This is a fun pattern for using up spare yarn and works up pretty quickly. I used safety eyes in the pictured example, but it would look just as cute with sewed on eyes.
