Crochet: Tote
Made with simple but strong stitches, this bag works up quickly and easily, making it ideal for beginners. Although this was originally designed as a library bag for my son (it’s made to hold four or five children’s books), this could also be a quick trip market bag or even your reusable fruit and veggie bag!
Crochet: Legwarmers
Worked flat from the bottom up in linen stitch with three colors that are alternated at the end of each row for nearly effortless, pixelated stripes, these fun little legwarmers are a treat to make! Post stitches add a little extra texture at the top and bottom edges and they can be closed with tons of buttons or a simple seam if you prefer. Th...
Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
This is one of those suprise designs that wasn’t on my radar until the pattern was practically already written. I had a student come in one day wanting to make a granny square shawl and on my way out the door after class, I picked up a skein of yarn from a local indie dyer to make one myself because we more or less wrote the pattern in class! I...
Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl was originally designed as a submission for an event held in North Carolina and so “Sweet Carolina Shawl” was my working title. When it wasn’t accepted, I started thinking about a new name, but then Hurricane Florence came along, threatening us here in Virginia and wreaking absolute havoc on our neighbors in the Carolinas - and I sti...
Crochet: Cowl
Are you mad about marling!? I sure am! In fact, after making this piece, I wanted to marl ALL THE THINGS!
Crochet: Cowl
Have you ever heard of brixel art? It’s pixelated artwork on BRICKS - and that’s what this piece reminds me of! Designed specifically for using a set of mini skeins, this is a small cowl, but I’ve included guidance in the pattern for modifying the size so you can use any yarn you like, including a self-striping yarn for even easier colorwork!
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
Worked from brim to crown, this hat is designed specifically for mini skeins. Basketweave texture allows the colors to fade and pop whimsically from one color to the next with colorwork that looks more complicated than it actually is!
Crochet: Tee
Soulfire is a simple summer top made with simple stitches and zero shaping (unless you want to add some during blocking), which makes it quick to crochet and easy to customize for a perfect fit. This design is versatile enough to wear as originally designed, with zero ease, or with LOTS of ease as a boxy top with lots of drape!
Crochet: Market bag (slouchy)
Errata: Rnd 42: ch 3, asterisk (ch 2, sk next 2 dc, dc in next) 3x, ch 2, sk ch 2 sp, dc in next dc. Repeat from asterisk around to last 11 st. (ch 2, sk next 2 dc, dc in next) 3x, ch 2, sk ch 2 sp, join with sl st to 1st dc.
Crochet: Cowl
Worked flat from end to end and then seamed together before edging with treble crochet shells, this cowl has subtly textured and almost, but not quite lacy panels that change colors in a sequence that is based on the seven visible phases of the moon. Visit my blog to read more about the inspiration behind this design!
Crochet: Cowl
This cowl is the piece representing the final chapter in the story of Tristan and Isolde. The Rose of Ireland and the Briar of Cornwall, Together at the Last. Forever. sigh It is the very embodiment of tragic love! The fabric itself is deeply, darkly beautiful and poignant. But it doesn’t have to be!
Crochet: Scarf
Made of mostly post stitches, this quirky little scarf is pretty dense, but that also means it’s delightfully warm!
Crochet: Christmas Stocking
There’s no denying that the granny square is a traditional crochet technique, and I wanted to make a classic, beginner friendly pattern with simple assembly for a holiday project, so when I thought about old timey Christmas, a granny square stocking seemed like the perfect solution! It’s a bit bigger than I envisioned, but not unreasonably larg...
Crochet: Neck / Torso - Other
Subtle texture created by working into the third loop of half double crochet rows and a bit of surface crochet along with angled edges make this piece just different enough to be interesting without being difficult to make. Add a few bold buttons and you have a quick and easy statement piece to dress up your fall wardrobe!
Crochet: Fingerless Gloves
These fingerless gloves weren’t actually planned. They sort of… insisted on being made! They are made to match the Moroldian Skull Cowl, which was inspired by yarn from the Tristan and Isolde Yarn Club from Round Table Yarns and, of course, the accompanying story. The cabling is based on Celtic knots and is worked to fit with filet crochet so y...
Crochet: Cowl
This deliciously sinister cowl was inspired not only by the character it is named for, but also by the yarn of the same name from Karen Robinson’s Tristan and Isolde Yarn Club.
Crochet: Scarf
I never planned on writing an actual pattern using the planned color pooling technique because there are just so many variables to consider. But this yarn demanded it!
Crochet: Scarf
A scarf inspired wholly by the gorgeous yarn from Round Table Yarns that it’s worked in, it’s perfect to wrap a couple times around your neck and secure with a fun shawl pin to show off the petaled edges. Longer petals are worked by adding chains or foundation single crochet stitches and as the petals get shorter again, we simply don’t work int...
Crochet: Cowl
Simple stitches paired with a gorgeous gradient yarn take this project from an exercise in crochet fundamentals to an artistic piece that you can be proud to wear, even as a beginner! Using four different crochet hooks with four different stitches may sound like a bit of a hassle, but it is an excellent way to test out and determine your natura...
Crochet: Hats - Other
Take the messy bun hat craze to the extreme with some chunky yarn and an oversized crochet hook! Worked flat with just one row of decreases to pull in the top, this is one of the easiest hats you’ll ever make. Lace it up with some leather cording and you’re done!
Crochet: Fingerless Gloves
Chunky crochet is in. And no wonder! You can work up this pair of fingerless gloves in no time at all and finishing them off with the leather accent means no seaming, which makes them even faster!
Crochet: Throw
Jump on the Caron Cakes bandwagon with me and play with COLOR! This blanket is a simple modification of the traditional granny square but it lends itself really well to experimenting with higher contrast colors since the rounds are weighted differently. And because it’s worked in the round, you can simply keep adding rounds until the blanket re...
Crochet: Scarf
This scarf was designed with my beginner crochet students in mind as an exercise in working with different hook placement. By alternating working into both loops, just the front loop, and just the back loop of stitches, we not only get to practice the often mundane single crochet, but also learn to better understand the different parts of this ...
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
I found a squishy little mini hank of hand dyed goodness during a yarn crawl and just had to turn it into a hat for my baby!
Crochet: Scarf
Basic scarf patterns for beginner crocheters tend to be a bit boring. Single crochet in each stitch across for a hundred and fifty-eleven rows. Or double crochet in each stitch across. Maybe even alternate rows of the stitches you’ve learned if you’re feeling frisky. But how about for those of us who like just a tiny bit of a challenge? Well, t...
Crochet: Scarf
The beauty in this fabulous little one skein scarf comes entirely from the yarn! The long variegation results in some unusual striping that makes each scarf unique and often looks like two different scarves entirely on opposite ends. The linen stitch works up quickly and there are some great colorways to choose from, so have fun!
Crochet: Hanging Ornament
My mother used to make all of our Christmas ornaments; my favorites were the snowflakes. I’ve tried my hand at thread crochet with varying success, but I finally decided that the snowflake designs I kept trying were just too piddly, so I set out to make my own.
Crochet: Scarf
This pattern was my first sit-down-and-scratch-your-head-for-hours design. Hours and hours! I had this idea in my head, though, and I had to try and get it out. I began with charts and lots of swatches, finally deciding on something I liked, but it was two years later before I worked up the courage to tackle written instructions. And oh boy did...
Crochet: Hair accessories
Looking for a last minute gift for a special little girl? Whip up a couple of these in about an hour!
Crochet: Doll Clothes - Other
I used #20 (about 2mm) hemp cord for this bear accessory because I wanted it to have structure without needing to starch it and I also wanted it to have an open, straw hat type of look. Raffia ribbon would also probably work well and be a little less rough to crochet with. Hat measures approximately 4.75” across.
