This cute headband is fun to make and perfect for gift giving. The unique stitch pattern I used gives a wonderful woven look, and it’s much easier than you might think. A very quick and enjoyable item to make! With ties in back, it should fit most head sizes easily. I’ll bet you’ll want to make more than one!
Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
Close your eyes and imagine this with me: you are sitting by the side of your favorite pond or creek, watching the lovely cool water gently tumbling over the rocks, and listening to the sounds of nature nearby. Serenity, calm, peaceful. That is what this Ripple Effect shawl brings to mind for me. Gentle water over rocks - with some sparkle.
Crochet: Beanie, Toque, Hats - Other
Looks good enough to eat, right? I think so. First I created this cupcake with a crocheted top and a knitted bottom – then decided I’d include an all crochet version for those who don’t knit or would prefer it. This hat is loads of fun to make – I’m guessing you won’t be able to make just one!
Crochet: Billed Hat
This is easily one of my favorite hats. Yes, I do really love hats of all shapes and sizes, but this one is a favorite of mine to wear. I am the type of person who can only wear a few different styles, baseball caps not being one of them. However, this style suits me just fine. Easily adaptable and cute, I’ll bet if you think hats are not for yo...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I pondered over this pattern for some time, as I absolutely loved the way it looked in both Malabrigo Twist and Malabrigo Worsted. Twist has a lot more heft to it, and the stitch definition is amazing. Worsted is so soft and fuzzy and very lightweight. Both have wonderful qualities to make them favorites of mine.
Crochet: Fingerless Gloves
Feeling a little bit sassy or sweet? These Girly Gauntlets are just what you need to show off your inner child. Make the Short and Sweet version if you would rather have a shorter mitt. Put some buttons or a simple button flower on them for a cute embellishment. Simple to work up, these also make fantastic gifts! Two patterns in one!
Crochet: Cup / Mug
Do you need a good cuppa joe in the morning to get you going? Does your mug sometimes seem a bit too hot to handle? If so, make one of these quick, fun mug cozies and keep your fingers cool! Takes a small amount of yarn to make, so it’s a great stashbuster project and great gift or stocking stuffer for the coffee lover in your life.
Save your furniture and decorate in style with these cute little coasters! Make them in a rainbow of colors! Each coaster takes approximately 25-30 yards, so you can easily make a set of 6 with very little yarn. Another great stashbuster project and great gift!
Crochet: Fingerless Gloves, Cuffs
I adore knitting and crocheting. I believe both crafts are unique in their own way, and play well together often. This is one of those times. These mitts were created as I was envisioning something that would be pretty and lacy, yet still keep your hands nice and warm using very little yarn. Simple and fun to work up, these mitts make lovely and...
Crochet: Cup / Mug
This java jacket will add a bit of spice to your early morning coffee routine. Worked in the round, this project is quick to make and fun to take! This coffee cuff replaces all those flimsy paper sleeves to keep your hands cool and clean. Just throw it in your purse or briefcase, and you’re good to go! Choose an easy care yarn for washabil...
Comfy and soft, a great yarn and pattern combination for a cute and fun slipper. These slippers are quick to make, worked in one piece, and only take up to 163 yards for a large pair for adults. If you have been thinking of learning to crochet, this would be a great project for beginners with a little bit of moxy!
Crochet: Scarf, Cowl
This cowl is so delicate, and will be a hit at the office, or out for a night on the town! It can be worn as a scarflette or a cowl, just place the buttons where you want them. And it only took one skein of yarn to complete. A great way to use up that lonely ball of sock yarn!
Crochet: Beret, Tam
This super cute slouchy tam is fun to make and quick to work up, with directions for infant/toddler thru adult. Worked from the top down, it’s nice and warm, yet the open stitches are great for those fall days when you want to wear a hat, but don’t want to overheat.
