Bi-Weekly Pattern Share

Hi Everyone!

It is time again to share some patterns that I have made recently and in the process of making. Baby items are so quick to make and are adorable when complete 🙂 I am excited to have completed these projects and can’t wait to make more!

The first pattern is the Angel Wings Pinafore pattern that I have been wanting to make for a really long time. It’s so cute and finally I made one! It is so easy to make and if you are able to read patterns fairly well you can make one yourself 🙂 The pattern is found on Bev’s Country Cottage Blog and I finished it really quickly. I just need to find someone with a baby to give it to now.

Here are my results:

Isn’t it adorable?

The second baby item I made recently are the rainbow baby booties from Sarah’s Repeat Crafter Me Blog. I didn’t want to change colours so I just made them with the same yellow yarn as the Angel Wing Pinafore. Sarah’s pattern was really easy to follow and I think I will give the booties and pinafore to someone as a baby shower gift 🙂

Here are my results:

731

You could also add non-slip patches to the bottom of the shoe for babies that are starter to walk 🙂

I have posted these on my etsy page if you would like a pair of your own without making them. You can find them here.

The final pattern I would like to share is a baby sweater that I found on ravelry. The pattern is by Julie and it’s found on the Crochet Me website. The Angel Wing Pinafore inspired me to make more baby clothes so I am attempting it now. I am making it in Christmas colours because I have had this Lion Brand Homespun yarn for a really long time now and wanted to finally use it for something.

Here are my current results:

73323

I am a little confused with the next few steps, but I’ll figure it out and post the finished sweater. I am thinking of putting a green boarder to make it even more festive.

Those are the patterns for this week. Enjoy 🙂

Crochet Kitchen Scrubbie

Hi Everyone!

I listed a new item in my Etsy store recently and today I want to share the pattern I used to make it with you 🙂 I always see people crocheting scrubbies, but haven’t really found out what the material they used was until I watched a video on Staci’s VeryPinkKnits Youtube Channel about Kitchen Scrubbies. She mentions that she found her materials at a fabric store so I went to one near my work to find some. Turns out they are made with nylon netting and I found some for cheap that was already cut into a 3.81 cm (1.5 inch) wide roll. I was very exited to take this home and try it out.

7

I decided to make one side of the scrubbie with the nylon netting and the other side with acrylic yarn. I have also made one with cotton yarn on the other side 🙂 Once again I used Adele’s Circle Pattern with some adjustments.

Here is the pattern I made:

Materials

Nylon Netting (cut into workable stripes)

6.00 mm (J) Hook

Acrylic or Cotton Yarn Worsted Weight

Tapestry Needle

Scissors

10

Abbreviations

(MR) – Magic Ring (SLST) – Slip Stitch
(CH) – Chain (ST) – Stitch
(DC) – Double Crochet (BLDC) – Back Loop DC

Pattern

For Nylon Netting

Round 1: CH 3 in MR and 11 DC around. SLST into CH 3. (12)

Round 2: CH 3, DC into same ST. 2 DC in each ST around. SLST into CH 3. (24)

Round 3: CH 3, DC into same ST. (DC into next, 2 DC into next) around. SLST into CH 3. (36)

Round 4: CH 3, DC into same ST. (DC into next 2, 2 DC into next) around. SLST into CH 3. (48)

FO.

For Cotton Yarn

Follow the same steps as Adele’s Retro Circle.

8

For Acrylic Yarn

(Note: You may not have to do this extra round if your acrylic yarn is on the thick side. Just compare the sizes of the circles and adjust as needed)

Follow the same steps as Adele’s Retro Circle and continue as follows.

Round 5: CH 1, SC around. (48)

FO. Leave long tail to sew to sides together.

Assembly

Using the long tail hold the two sides together and weave yarn in and out of both layers. I did it around two times around so it would stay together while washing dishes.

Finished! 🙂

These would make a great housewarming gift or just to use at home and it can be made with a little bit of material.

Enjoy!

Bi-Weekly Pattern Share

Hi Everyone!

It’s time again for another pattern share post. Have you tried the patterns that I posted last time? I hope you did and enjoyed them. This week I am sharing patterns that I have done recently and from a long while ago when I first started to crochet 🙂

First up is a knitting pattern of baby socks. I love making socks, but it always takes me so long to knit anything that I don’t do it that often. This time I thought it would make me finish quicker if I made baby socks 😛 I finished in two weeks, which is pretty fast for me. The pattern I used is found on ravelry by Judy. Even though I finished relatively quickly I still had a little time in between the making of each sock so one sock is slightly bigger than the other. The second sock is always my problem…Even still, I think it the pattern creates a very cute pair of baby socks 😀

Here are my results:

2015-03-26-19-07-24_deco41977

Easy pattern to follow and is a little more interesting than the usual stockinette stitch sock patterns.

The second pattern that I want to share this post is a collar pattern. Lots of people are wearing them these days because it adds a cute look to an outfit. It was a quick and easy pattern to follow that I finished in an hour or so. I found the pattern on Shara’s blog Shara Lambeth’s Design. I gave it to my cousin cause I think she will use it more than I will. The ravelry page for the pattern can also be found here.

Here is the collar that I made:

It will add a little bit of a cute look to shirts or dresses that need a little bit of a change. Enjoy making your own today!

The final pattern I want to share is a crochet mountain pillow that my cousin wanted me to make for her. I didn’t have the right yarn that the pattern called for so I held two pieces of worsted (4 ply) yarn together and crocheted them as a single piece. I found the pattern on Jill’s ravelry page, here. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would because of how large the hook was, but I eventually finished. You can make separate mountain peaks or have one pillow with three peaks 🙂 The pattern also allows you to decide when you want to stop so the pillow can be as big or as small as you want. I really like how the pillow turned out even though it took me a while to finish.

Here are my results:DSC05819DSC05821

Isn’t it great? I think this will add some interest into any living room. Enjoy making your own 🙂

Those are the patterns for this bi-weekly pattern share. Go and try them today! Enjoy!

May Flowers Crochet Coaster Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Since it’s May and it’s Spring I made patterns for a crochet flower and a flower coaster. You may have seen my previous flower coaster pattern in an earlier post.

Crochet Slouchy Toque/Hat Pattern

Hi everyone!

I want to share with you a pattern for a slouchy hat today. I have been obsessed with Adele’s circle pattern from her blog Three Beans in a Pod. I love the look it gives when you double crochet from the back loop only that I had to make a hat from it. Originally I was following Tamara’s pattern on her blog Moogly, but I think the yarn I was using was too thick so it didn’t slouch right so I decided to combine the structure of Tamara’s pattern with the look of Adele’s pattern to make a hat 🙂3Materials

5.5 mm (I) Hook

Craft Smart Grey Yarn (Worsted Weight Yarn (4 : Medium))

Tapestry Needles

Scissors

Abbreviations

(SC) – Single Crochet (FO) – Finish Off
(CH) – Chain (BLSC) – Back Loop Single Crochet
(BLDC) – Back Loop Double Crochet

Pattern

I followed the structure of Tamara’s All Grown Up Striped Slouch Hat, but only working in back loop only instead of the back post. This follows the same concept as Adele’s Retro Circles. So it was BLDC for all the rounds except round 17, where I did BLSC instead. I followed these steps and finished off. I tried to follow the steps for the trim, but I can never do that type of trim properly so I decided to try another way of doing it.

2

Trim

CH 9

Row 1 – 70: SC in second CH from hook and till end. Turn. CH 1. (8)

Connect Row 70 to Row 1 by using BLSC. CH 1.

SC around the circumference of trim (70)

FO. Leave a long tail (enough to sew trim onto bottom of hat).

Attach trim onto the bottom of the hat by weaving the tail in and out of the SC around the trim and the SC from the bottom of the hat.

Done 🙂

I love combining different ideas together to make something new. Enjoy!

Bi-Weekly Pattern Share

Hi Everyone!

I was thinking of doing a post every other week about the different patterns that I have tried or want to try. I am always on ravelry, craftgawker, and facebook looking for different patterns that I want to try. There is always amazing things that I see that inspire me to craft 🙂 This week I will start with 3 patterns that I have tried recently and completed 🙂

First up is this cute apple dishcloth. I love it! So much fun to make with small amounts of cotton yarn. I saw this pattern on The Crochet Crowds’ video post on facebook. My cousin is moving into a new apartment soon so I thought it would make a good housewarming gift if I made some household items 🙂 They suggested using one colour for the apple so it would look like a whole apple so I decided to do that because I didn’t have the right colour for the inside 😛

Here is my creation from the apple dishcloth pattern found on ravelry:

42718Isn’t it cute? If you know someone that is moving into a new place soon you should definitely make them some or just make them for yourself 😛

The next patterns I want to share are actually patterns from a blog that I frequent a lot. It is Sarah’s blog Repeat Crafter Me. She has so many amazing free patterns that I use all the time. If you have kids her blog is the perfect place to get ideas. This past week I made two things from her crochet patterns page. A tiger hat that I just made into a cat hat, and a frog hat 🙂 Both were really easy to make and I loved how they turned out!

Here are the results:

5061750612

You should definitely give her patterns a try. They are easy to follow and everything is so cute!

The final pattern I wanted to share is a work in progress project. I’ve wanted to make a blanket with squares for a while now and saw this cute pattern on Adele’s blog Three Beans in a Pod. It’s a simple pattern that forms a circle and then a border that makes it into a square. Easy! 🙂 I’ve only made around 20 square so far so it will still be a while before I finish, but here are some progress pictures:

417314715849108

Those are the patterns for this bi-weekly pattern share. You should definitely give them a try! I will be back with more patterns that I am trying out or want to try out in two weeks! See you then! 😀
