"These crochet potholders make great holiday or hostess gifts (they take about an hour to whip up!) – I’ll be giving sets of these along with my favorite cookbook tied up with a fluffy piece of scrap yarn. Gift giving season never looked so good – or was so utilitarian!"
"Make your own crochet bracelet using my free crochet pattern. It’s a very easy and beginner-friendly project which works up very fast. You can finish a crochet bracelet in less than an hour. Perfect to make for yourself or friends and family. Finally a great project to use yarn scraps for!"
"Do you have a teenager in your life that you just don’t know what to gift this holiday season? Whether you’re looking for quick crochet stocking stuffer ideas or just a little something for yourself, these little crocheted pouches made with this free pouch pattern are perfect, quick, and not too difficult either!"
"All of these scarves are made with alternating rows of HDC and half double slip stitch, but I wanted to see how inserting my hook in different ways would change the look of each of them. I love how something as simple as changing which loop to go into can create such different looks!"
"This cute and easy crochet cactus pincushion is a delightful addition to your craft room! Make this project easily in just an afternoon. Your finished crochet cactus pincushion will be a fun and whimsical place to store your pins for all your future crochet, sewing and crafting needs."
"Calling all sock lovers! I have a brand NEW free crochet pattern for Herringbone Socks to share with you today! ♥ Available in five sizes from Women’s 5 to Men’s 13, whip a pair up for all of your favorite people."
"I designed the Alex Basket crochet pattern because I’m in love with Home Decor, and truly enjoy finding ways to add punches of crochet into rooms wherever I can! So, when my friend Stevee mentioned that she needed a pot cover, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!"
"I knew that I wanted these baskets to be built in one piece (no seaming). I initially started with a square base made in the round, like you would build a granny square, but I just wasn’t happy with the way the base puckered. Baskets need a tighter-than-usual hook and yarn combo that simply isn’t compatible with a nice flat worked-in-the-round square. So next, I tried a square worked in rows. Much better! Because of the tightness, the square didn’t lay flat at first, but by the time I finished the basket you never would’ve known."
"I have the perfect pattern for you today! The Sweet and Simple Crochet Basket is a simple make that works up quickly using Bernat Home Dec yarn. A great project with endless possibilities for use. Are you ready to make one of your own? Here we go!"
"This easy free pattern for crochet headband is such a fun and fast project, your warm ears will thank you! Crocheting is not just one of the most enjoyable and pleasurable activities, but also wearing crochet accessories is the cutest thing of all time."
"It really is a fun project for the man in your life and a great one to whip up for Father’s Day! Made with Caron Simply Soft in the new tweeds which has a smooth and comfy texture and a good gender neutral color."
"Finished, this bag is about 12 inches wide by 12 inches tall (excluding handles) when laid flat. You most definitely can choose other yarns and colors (cotton yarn might actually be a better material choice than acrylic, but acrylic was what I had on hand). You could also make all the mushrooms one color, and not have to worry so much about joining them in the right order."
"I had to get in on some of the fun, so I created this striped ponytail hat crochet pattern. I love that it’s worked in the round and from the top like a traditional crochet hat and that you begin by working around a hair elastic so it can easily fit around your bun and keep its shape."
"This crochet gift card holder will fit the standard sized 3.5″ x 2.5″ rectangular gift card with a small bit of ease to make getting the gift card in and out easier. Gauge will be important to ensuring the best possible fit. It won’t be the end of the world if the gift card holer is a bit bigger than the gift card you’re using but potentially having it turn out smaller could mean you may not be able to get your gift card into it."
"This pattern is rated at an easy skill level but if you are an adventurous beginner who is comfortable with half double crochet and working in the front and back loops of stitches, you can likely tackle this project."
"I designed this dishcloth using one of my favorite crochet stitches. It is named after Virginia’s state tree and flower: The American Dogwood. Dishcloths make excellent market items, but I especially love to give them as gifts for Christmas, Mother’s Day, birthdays, etc. We use them in our own home all the time as well. I hope you love and enjoy making this pretty little dishcloth!"
"The Christmas wine cosy is designed to fit standard wine bottles. I figured as wine is for adults, I’d go for a simple yet classy design. I wanted to avoid traditional Christmas themes such as Rudolph and snowmen and go for something a more ‘grown up’. Altogether I’m really pleased with the outcome and hope you will be too!"
"This beachy crochet tote is perfect for Summer with a roomy interior and interchangeable fabric straps. Great for a trip to the beach or stroll around the market this light weight bag is a fun and beautiful Spring or Summer project. Designed with beginners in mind the pattern uses only one stitch, includes step by step pictures, and a video tutorial."
"A beautiful lacy crochet corner bookmark- Lotte Bookmark is a free crochet pattern here on the blog. It would make a fantastic teacher’s gift for the end of the school year. Secondly, it would be a great crochet gift for a book lover."
"The Mystical Mitts are a simple pair of crochet mittens packed full of crochet stitch texture, luxury and style. They are a dream to make, simply seam a rectangle and add a thumbhole – a quick and easy pattern perfect for gifts and for yourself!
The pattern includes instructions for adult sizes Small, Medium and Large and are easily adjustable to fit most people."
Quickly crochet these dishcloths for yourself or to give as a gift. They absorb great and are perfect for many things like washing dishes, drying hands, or for washcloths in the bathroom. They launder well and they’ll look fantastic out on your kitchen or bathroom counter."
Hi! I’m Julie. I design modern crochet patterns and tutorials to help you learn to crochet. I’ve been crocheting for over two decades and with the gentle nudging of my husband, decided to turn this passion into a career. Although we travel a lot in our campervan, you’ll never find me without a bag of yarn and projects.
