12 Days of Free Crochet Patterns – Day 7

As we continue our 12 Days of Crochet Patterns, there is one designer in particular I think of when I think ‘fashion’…..Cindy Kamps.  Her patterns are super easy to read!  She breaks them down by step, not by row or round to prevent any confusion, etc. I have many of her patterns and have never been disappointed. Most of them look more complicated than they are. Try this one out as a quick stocking stuffer.

Day 7 is Cindy’s pattern “Cinched Up.”  Make a lariat, belt, and more from this free download.

12 Days of Free Crochet Patterns – Day 6

As I was considering which patterns to share over the 12 days, I decided that I would feature designers that I have looked up to for their style/design, etc.  For Day 6 I’m featuring Vashti Braha. She was one of the first designers that I purchased a pattern from outside of a publishing company (book form). Her designers are stylish, fresh, and fun. I’m going to leave you with 2 options for today. A quick project in case you’re still looking for Christmas ideas, and a more elaborate project in case you’re ready to sit and make something for yourself.  Enjoy!

Quick & Easy Chain Scarf – Free Crochet Pattern Day 5

It’s day 5 of my 12 Days of Free Crochet Patterns.  Today’s pattern is my version of a Chain Scarf.  I sold so many of these scarves at a craft fair I did recently, and I’ve had a lot of requests for the pattern, so here it is.

This is the quickest and easiest scarf you will ever make~!  If you still have gifts to make give this one a try. They only take about 1/2 hour each.  Let me know what you think.

 Chain Scarf Logo

Finished Size:  One size fits most adults

Materials: For a thicker winter scarf use Lion Brand Hometown USA; for a thinner/different look use 2 or 3 strands of #4 ww yarn held together.

  • Size N-13/9.00mm crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle

Gauge:  not important for this project

 

chain 1000…. yes, you read that correctly!

Wrap chain into approx. 43″ hoops; you should have approx. 10 loops (for a girls size you can wrap it into approx. 41″ hoops)

There should be a small amount of chains left over.  Wrap those chains around the entire loop. Tie in the ends.

scarf tieI used 2 seperate colors for this scarf. It’s easier to see the wrap because of the contrast.

12 Days of Free Crochet Patterns – Day 3

I’ve decided to pick some of my favorite designers, those who I have looked up to since I began crocheting, and feature some of their patterns too.

Today I’m featuring Cute Crochet Chat.  Her patterns are always easy to read and understand, and she’s a great person too!

She has a pattern for a christmas bulb on her blog.  These would be perfect as ornaments on the tree, or you could even string them together and make garland. Click on the picture to get the free pattern on her blog.
