12 Days of Free Cochet Patterns – Day 9

Another designer who was one I admired when I was just starting out is Ellen Gormley, and her blog is Go Crochet.  She has some great designs, and quite a few free ones to choose from.  I chose 2 patterns, one whimsical and one elegant, because I wasn’t sure what kind of patterns everyone is looking for.

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.
