Make it Funny

This Father’s Day weekend is also the same weekend as my son’s birthday. And both my son and his father are funny. In quite different ways, as my husband is a comedian and my son loves puns. His father does not like puns. Anyway, here is a little collection of funny patterns to make, most of them crochet patterns, but one funny little cross-stitch at the end.

While my husband (along with a lot of people, actually) is kind of afraid of clowns, the classic guy to make you laugh is a clown. If you’re trying to inoculate your children against clown fear, perhaps you can make them a clown from this Amigurumi Clown Crochet Pattern and they will associate clowns with happy toys. Otherwise, they can just avoid clowns altogether, like my family tries to do.

I love to find subtle funny things hiding places, like these Crochet Eyeball Headrest Covers. I think it would just delight me to sit 50 meters away from my car and watch people walk by to see their reactions when they notice these silly headrest covers.

Here’s a great father’s day-inspired crochet pattern you could probably whip up before the day was done. This Crochet Beer Mug Pattern would be a fun piece of decor for the den or the basement bar.

I made my son an oreo ice cream cake for his birthday this year, but he might have appreciated a cake made from this Amigurumi Birthday Cake Crochet Pattern. I don’t know if it would be worth it for him though. He is thirteen now and although I’m in no hurry for him to grow up beyond cute anthropomorphic cakes, I think he might not enjoy this for much longer than the initial reaction.

If you’d like to make your dog something to laugh at, you can dress him up like a bear if you make this Bear Headband for Dog Crochet Pattern. Ah? I’m all for making dogs look silly. Is it cruel? I don’t know, I don’t have a dog. But it doesn’t seem like they mind you laughing at them.

Of course for the cat loves in the bunch there’s the Crochet Cat Butt Coaster Crochet Pattern. 100% of sales proceeds for the month of June (2020) are going to the Black Lives Matter movement, which is awesome, so go grab one of these cute patterns today! My question is… do cat loves love cat butts? Like, as much as I think this is funny, I just don’t know anyone who is serving up their coffee on cat butt coasters…

This is probably more my style of cheeky decor: the Crochet Cactus Pillow Cover Pattern would make a fun piece of decor with a little nod to your favourite succulent, as well as some ’80s hip hop.

I guess it’s a familiar trope that marriage is like a ball and chain? It’s not something I’ve heard a lot recently, but if you are going to make the joke, you can accompany it with a prop made from this Prison Ball and Chain Crochet Pattern. It would make a great costume prop as well for a prisoner costume.

Here’s a fun little cheeky rattle pattern for ya. This Boobie Baby Rattle Crochet Pattern would be a fun little gift for new parents who don’t take themselves too seriously. Babies don’t care what their toys look like, but parents can find some humour in them.

Honestly, you’d be surprised how many penis-inspired crochet patterns there are. If you’re looking for that kind of thing, people seem to like this Penis Can Cozy. Looks a little cumbersome, but good for a laugh.

It is really funny what we find funny. Not sure if I’m going to go this far to make a cross-stitch like this Bathroom Rating Cross Stitch for my bathroom, but it is kind of hilarious to imagine a bathroom rating site. ratemybathroom.com?

I hope you enjoyed this collection of funny patterns to make. Enjoy the funny people in your life today and don’t take yourself too seriously in your making! Life’s too short to be grumpy about crafts! Grab a pattern and make one today or pin it for later!

Crocheted Creatures

As the weather warms and we venture outside more, the desire to sit under heavy sweaters and blankets passes and at the end of a day of gardening or spending time outside or renovating your bathroom (true story), sitting on the deck with a cold drink and a crochet hook to make some little stuffed creatures is just the sort of craft to keep your fingers busy in the evening. Amigurumi is a Japanese word for small stuffed, crocheted creatures. In its most limited meaning of the word, they are anthropomorphic and crocheted: think little cupcakes with faces. But in the more broad sense, it applies to knit and crocheted creatures, including dolls and stuffed animals. And I’ve had forest creatures on my mind today as I was sharing a story how we dealt with bears at camp with my youngest son this morning. So I’ve collected a bunch of adorable crocheted creature patterns for you to choose from to keep yourself busy this spring.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

So naturally, since it was bears that inspired this pattern round up, the first amigurumi creature I have for you is this 3-in-1 Teddy Bear Crochet Pattern. The 3-in-1 part means that there are also 2 other options included in this pattern: options to change the pattern in order to make a bunny and a cat. So cute! And this fuzzy plush yarn works up quickly and makes a super soft and cuddly toy any child will love! (Also: yellow bear! So cute!)

While bears are an obvious choice for a handmade stuffed toy, why don’t you try something a little unique, like this Amigurumi Shrew Crochet Pattern? Don’t you love its long snout and little ears? And what shrew is complete without a little sweater? Absolutely adorable. It’s so fun to make and give handmade amigurumi gifts and for the recipients to have a toy made just for them that no one else one just like it.

My exploration into crocheted creatures for you was not limited to just land animals. Hue the Manatee Amigurumi Pattern is an adorable crochet pattern. If you check out the pattern, you’ll see that you don’t just have to make this Manatee in a traditional grey, but you can use a striping yarn or other bright colours to make this sweet, easy to follow pattern in whatever custom colour you choose!

We’re still loving alpacas, right? Alicia the Alpaca Amigurumi Pattern is an adorable, fuzzy crocheted stuffed animal that will make anyone smile, with her colourful, little pannier blanket, she would make a great handmade gift for a loved one.

Do hamsters live in the wild? You know I saw this super cute Hamster Crochet Pattern and thought it also looked like a full-cheeked chipmunk! So adorable and cartoonish, don’t you agree? One of these little guys would be a cute project to work on while camping and to keep in your trailer as a cuddly little trailer guest (who won’t eat through your pantry!).

I thought this Little Hamster Crochet Pattern resembled the pet hamsters that so many kids had or elementary school classes passed around for kids to take home. I was never in a class that had a class pet, so maybe that was just on television or by the time I was a kid they realized how traumatic it was for a creature to be passed around to different children. My eldest did bring home the class fish for a week or something. We thankfully didn’t kill it, but I think fish would probably prefer to stay in one place too.

Another under-represented stuffed animal is the badger. But you can make your own unique stuffed toy with this Bradley the Badger Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Isn’t he adorable? I love his stripey black mask and his fuzzy coat.

Check out this adorable Leia the Turtle Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Turtles make such adorable stuffed animals and while many kids seem to want a turtle as a pet, they’re not the easiest pet to keep. This little turtle would be super easy to keep and is just my speed as far as pets go. Her little shell is removable and has a cute little ties to fasten it on

If you like desert animals, check out this 4-in-1 Desert Creatures Amigurumi Patterns. It’s a bundle of patterns from Loopy Pattern and all her pattern bundles are 40% cheaper than buying the patterns separately. If you like a designer and their pattern style, buying a bundle of patterns is a great way to save a little money. And check out those adorable little creatures! This awesome bundle gets you an owl, a chameleon, a meerkat and a fennec (which is an African fox). What a fun and adorable bundle of creatures to make!

Here’s another unique toy to make: this Lemur Amigurumi Crochet Pattern also from Loopy Pattern is so adorable with his long slender striped tail. Lemurs gained a great deal of popularity after the Disney movie Madagascar was released. This sweet little stuffed toy would like to “move it, move it” along with a fun kid friend!

I know sheep are not exactly forest animals, but when I found this Bobble Sheep Amigurumi Crochet Pattern, it made me think of the New Zealand sheep, Shrek who escaped shearing for 6 years. When he was finally found and sheared, his fleece weighed in at more than 60 lbs! This little bobbly stuffed sheep will certainly not weigh 60 lbs, but he will certainly sit contentedly on your bed or couch as a fun conversation piece.

If you’ve never tried crocheting an amigurumi stuffed toy, it’s a great time to try it out! It’s such a fun and satisfying area of the craft of crocheting. Many patterns often work up quickly, so they make great last minute handmade gift ideas for young and old alike! Pick up one of these cute patterns today or pin it for later so you don’t forget!

Make for Mother’s Day

Since we’re all staying home these days and there are no soccer and no basketball practices or games or concerts to attend, you might find yourself with plenty of time on your hands. There are also not as many stores open, so there’s never been a more perfect time to consider making a gift for your mom this year! And hey, if your mom isn’t around anymore or if your mom isn’t really the person you celebrate, I hope you have a gramma or an auntie or another respected, life-giving woman in your life to celebrate at this time of year. I’ve got a great collection of patterns for you to choose from to make this a fantastic and memorable Mother’s Day, even if it might be on lock-down.

Probably the mom in your life has all the awesome rugs she needs. But I could totally find a place for this Modern Scandinavian Design Crochet Rug! I’ve been wanting to make a rug for a while and I have some ideas in the works… but in the mean time, I might check out this fun pattern. What do you think? Would your mom love this rug?

Maybe your mom is a bit more whimsical and would enjoy a smaller fun little rug made from this Pavo the Peacock Mat Crochet Pattern? I love the fuzzy yarn used int he sample on the feathers. It really adds a touch of extra. This adorable little mat would look sweet in a baby’s room or just anywhere you’d want to add that extra little bit of whimsy!

My mom’s been wanting me to make her a tea cozy for a while now (I promise, mom, I’ve totally been thinking about it… I just haven’t got quite the right thing yet). I’m not sure this is what my mom would be looking for, but this cute Sweater Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern is adorable and would totally keep your tea cozy! (Cosy, cozy? What do you say? I’m cool either way. I’m Canadian like that though.)

I don’t know if there’s always room for another pillow, but if there’s not, it’s a good time to cycle a new one in! This Chunky Bobble Crochet Pillow Pattern would make an adorable and quick to crochet gift for your mom this year. There are so many cute pillow patterns out there, I’m having a hard time deciding what to make. I used to be much more anti-throw-pillow, but much to my mother in law’s delight, pillows have grown on me a little more. I still don’t love a ton of them on the bed because you can’t sleep with all those pillows on the bed and then where do you put them? What a hassle. And honestly, our bed doesn’t get made nearly as often as I would like, so then there’d be pillows all over the room most of the time. Ain’t nobody got room for that.

See how I’m having such a tough time deciding on a pillow to make? Check out this adorable Dahlia Pillow Crochet Pattern! This mustard colour is my jam (I don’t really like jam… certainly not as much as I like the phrase “my jam,” but I digress). This pillow would look fantastic in my sitting room, with my mustard yellow chairs. Would your mom like this?

Or maybe your mom would be more into a Crochet Fern Pillow? If you can’t decide between one of these two beauties (the dahlia one and this one), you can get them both in a bundle for a deal. I think they go together great and would be a lovely change for spring!

Moving away from the decor options, perhaps your mom would like this easy-wearing Park City Poncho Crochet Pattern. If all you know how to do is granny stitch, this project would be a great pattern to branch out into garments. Simple construction, simple stitch, stunning result. I love a beginner crochet pattern, even though I can make more advanced projects. Sometimes the simple ones are more impressive… and wearable!

Is your mom a hot mama? When we can go to the beach again and go on warm weather vacations, this Crochet Dress Pattern makes a gorgeous beach cover up, perfect for the resort! For now, I guess it’ll have to do for around the house and lounging around the backyard.

One of the things my mom likes is swans. I’m not sure this Clara the Swan amigurumi pattern is exactly what she’d be looking for because I’m not really sure where she’d put it. Maybe in her office to bring a little bit of joy. But it sure is a sweet little amigurumi!

This Crochet Swan Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern might find a place more easily in my mom’s house. I love this tapestry crochet pattern from the shop Manuska. It would also make a very fun and classy wall decor for a baby’s room, don’t you think? So cute.

Well… here it is… my mom wants a tea cozy and she loves swans. So here it is: the Swan Tea Cozy Pattern! hahahahahaha! I don’t know… I just… can’t. The placement of the spout…. oh man! It’s just so weird. That said, it’s a really well-done pattern, clever and it really looks like a swan… but with a weird… appendage. What about you? Would you make this? Is it good for a laugh?

If you’re not the maker type, Etsy has some great gift options from small businesses in their Mother’s Day gift guide. There’s still time to grab something that’s ready to go. Buy small right now. Many people are depending on their side gigs in difficult times. Your purchases mean so much more to makers and designers than they do to Amazon or Walmart. So pick up one of these cute patterns and get making today or pin it for later!

Spring Home Patterns

We’ve finally climbed out of the bone-chilling winter temperatures (and only a month into spring! #whydoilivehere?), so it’s definitely time to celebrate! It’s time to open the windows, enjoy some fresh air, and take walks without a coat (sweaters still required). And it’s definitely time to bring some spring life into our homes. Here in Edmonton, garden centres and greenhouses have been declared essential services during this pandemic(#agree), so I’m so excited that we will be able to get some plants since I didn’t start any seeds this year. There’s still some time, so I might still get to it. Maybe tomorrow afternoon…

Anyway, let’s bring some spring indoors! We still have some chilly evenings ahead and since we’re hunkered down so much, we have some time to freshen up our indoors with some lovely handmade spring decor! Check out these patterns to get making today!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Bring some homey-ness to your plants with a Crochet Planter Pattern. Warm up your plants and add some cohesiveness to your home decor. I know I have a bunch of mis-matched planters around my house, so wrapping them all up in a matching set of crocheted planters like this would be perfect!

Spring is the perfect time to try embroidery! There are so many wonderful, springy embroidery patterns to check out, including this Beginner Floral Embroidery Pattern. Small crafts like this are so portable, perfect for sitting on the deck and enjoying the fresh air while relaxing with a new craft!

I also love this Dandelion Hand Embroidery Pattern. Modern and pretty, this pattern looks like it would be easy to accomplish and I love that it would work so nicely on a dark background. It really makes the light colours pop!

I’m so sorry I didn’t find this Easter Bunny Gnome Crochet Pattern before Easter for you all (and for me too!) I love gnomes! I just think they’re soooooo cute! I love the whimsical bunny ears coming from his hat (let’s not imagine anatomy, ok?) So cute… and it’s a perfect time to get a jump on next Easter.

If there’s a baby due this spring, this Spring into Summer Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern is the perfect, simple crochet pattern if you’ve ever wanted to try corner to corner crochet. It looks lovely made in this multi-coloured yarn!

This is the perfect time to make a Hello Spring Crochet Pillow! Crochet pillow covers are so fun and great to swap out during the year for seasonal changes to your living room. These patterns are adorable and customizable so it will always match your decor! Make those flowers in whatever colour you like!

I love wreaths! And what better time than spring to bring in a Knitted Flower Wreath Pattern into your decor! Check out these cute knitted flowers and leaves. They look gorgeous on this vine wreath. I probably wouldn’t hang this outdoors, as I don’t think the yarn would hold up to the elements very well, but it is a lovely way to bring a hint of spring into your home!

I know I usually focus on fibre arts here, but there are so many crafts worth trying. This French Beaded Crocus Pattern is a beautiful introduction into bead-work. What a lovely looking project to try! Have you ever tried beading like this? So neat!

What better way to breathe life into your home than making one of these Trinity Macrame Plant Hanger Pattern to hang your plants. This is definitely a 70’s throwback, but macrame is vintage and very trendy right now. So many fun ways to hang plants! I remember doing macrame in Girl Guides when I was a child. And I also made a lot of friendship bracelets in my early twenties, which uses some of the same knot techniques used in macrame.

I love this modern take on macrame. And I might even be able to find a place for this Macrame Planter Hanger Pattern for the wall… maybe in my bathroom upstairs… Or perhaps in the bathroom down here when we get around to doing that.

There are so many other lovely DIY patterns and supplies featured in this Etsy Editor’s Picks as well. Totally worth checking out if you’re looking for some new crafting inspiration! Which of these lovely patterns will you make to bring a touch of spring into your home? Pick up one today or pin it for later!

Cuddly Creatures

I’m sure we could all use a little extra comfort right now. A crocheted (or knit!) cuddly creature is the perfect thing to make to get a feeling of accomplishment with only a few hours of work (well, depending on the pattern). Smaller amigurumis (crocheted stuffed toys) can come together in one to three hours. It’s so fun to watch your yarn turn into a cuddly little friend. What better gift to give to your child or grandchild than a handmade stuffed toy for a little bit of extra comfort? Check out these adorable amigurumi patterns to make! (There’s even a couple of knitting patterns in here!)

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

How about these Beep & Boop the Robot Twins? If you’re just getting started with amigurumi, this is a very easy crochet pattern that is only 11 pages long and includes plenty of step-by-step photos to help you along the way.

If robots aren’t quite cuddly enough for you, check out this Cuddle-Sized Teddy Bear Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Tristan the Teddy Bear is the perfect little classic teddy bear amigurumi pattern, also a very easy pattern to follow with plenty of helpful step-by-step photos. Storyland Amis has plenty of other fabulous amigurumi patterns worth spending your time on! Go take a look for a wide assortment of adorable amigurumi creatures.

If you’re looking for a stuffed animal pattern that is a little bit less conventional, but just as adorable, check out this Plush Baby Bull Pattern. This sample is made with a plush velvet yarn, which looks so cozy! Anyone would love to snuggle up to this adorable little bull!

Of course, with Easter only a couple of weeks away, this Plush Bunny in Dress Crochet Pattern is here just in time for Easter gift-giving. You’ll have to get on it though! Look at how sweet this adorable Easter bunny is. What a sweet gift idea!

Speaking of bunnies, the pattern shown above Penelope Bunny in Granny Square Dress and hat. The Granny Square Dress and hat and shoes are a separate pattern (that fits a few of her dolls, so the Penelope Bunny would have to be purchased separately. Carmen Rent is also another prolific amigurumi designer with plenty of fantastic doll patterns to explore.

One of my favourite amigurumi designers, Manuska, has created this beautiful Maya Angelou Crochet Doll Pattern, celebrating a strong and accomplished woman. What a lovely way to introduce a young woman to this excellent female role model!

Of course, if you’re all about the animals, this Pug Shpuntic Dog Amigurumi Crochet Pattern is a hilarious, cartoony amigurumi pattern that you simply must try! I love all his folds and crazy eyes!

If you’ve stumbled on this post with not much time until Easter, this Charlie the Chick Crochet Pattern is a small pattern that works up quickly with a small amount of yarn. If you’re looking for a free version, it’s available here on the Yarn Society website.

For a different style of bird pattern, check out the Blu the Bird Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Such a cute little birdie pattern. It’s also available for free on the Yarn Society website by clicking here.

For my knitters, I haven’t forgotten about you! It’s just not as easy to find cute knitted toys. The visibility of increases and decreases in knitting just doesn’t lend itself as well to amigurumi. But these Moss the Sheep Knitting Patterns are an exception! Fluff and Fuzz has quite a few adorable amigurumi knitting patterns, so if you’re not interested in learning crochet, check out the great variety of knitting patterns in the Fluff and Fuzz shop.

This one was another favourite from Fluff & Fuzz, the Berry Bear knitting pattern. In this fuzzy yarn, you can’t tell it’s knit at all! It looks so good! My kids would love one of these adorable scruffy-looking stuffed bears.

I know that some of you may have difficulty getting out to get supplies if you’re either quarantined or social distancing or if stores have temporarily closed in your area. Most online retailers continue to ship and in my city, Michaels is still offering curbside pick up.

Beautiful Blankets

15 beautiful blanket patterns to knit and crochet

I think one of the most soothing things to make is a blanket. There’s just something about working on a larger project that isn’t overly complicated that is so very satisfying. Getting in the groove of a pattern that you’ve memorized, working for hours almost mindlessly creating a beautiful cozy item that is going to wrap someone you love in warmth and comfort is such a lovely experience! I’m really drawn to simple stitch patterns in neutral colours, so you’ll probably get a sense for my design sensibility through the patterns that I’ve collected for you here today.

The Winchester Knit Throw Blanket Pattern is a simple seed stitch knit blanket. Made of just knits and purls, this would be a great project for a new knitter. It’s a great pattern to get plenty of practice switching between knits and purls. It would make a lovely throw for your living room couch or a sweet little baby blanket for an anticipated little one! This blanket will knit up quickly as it’s designed with a super bulky weight yarn!

The Chunky Oversized Cable Knit Blanket Pattern is a beautiful stylish throw blanket pattern that would be a fun project to cozy up with all winter! Working under the lovely weight and size of this blanket would be so warm and comforting! Just imagine when it’s done! You’ll be able to practice following a cable-knit pattern, so I think this might make the perfect first cable-knit project for a knitter.

This fun blanket is definitely a little more colourful than the others, but I couldn’t help being drawn to this Crochet Lego Blanket Pattern. I know that plenty of crocheters are looking for blanket patterns for kids, and it can be especially difficult to find patterns that crocheters think will appeal to boys. This fun lego inspired pattern is sure to delight any lego-lover!

I love the sweet little hearts on this Heart Blanket Crochet Afghan Pattern. The hexagon shapes stitched together to form a lovely throw blanket that would be gorgeous in different shades of pink like shown here, or more subtly in a solid colour, which would allow the texture of the heart motifs to shine!

10 Crocheted Hats Patterns to Love

With all the knitting I’ve been doing lately, I think it’s time to bring back some crochet patterns for this week’s pattern round up. Crocheting hats is so satisfying because they can often be whipped up in a couple of hours and you have a gorgeous, handmade, warm beanie to chase away the winter chill. So, if you’re needing some trendy inspiration for your next crocheted beanie, check out this fabulous collection of beautiful textured crochet patterns.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

I’m loving the texture on this Jackson Beanie Crochet Pattern; it looks a little reminiscent of seed stitch, almost knit and purled, don’t you think? And I’m loving the deep jewelled tone of the yarn Jennifer of Laine and Lotus chose for this hat! A beginner crocheter could make this hat, which is sized to fit the average adult woman’s head. You know you’re going to want to make one of these beauties.

The Winter Rose Beanie Crochet Pattern was designed by my friend Jasmine at OceanPeakDesigns. This month, 100% of the proceeds of the sale of this hat pattern will be donated to NSW Fire Fighters & WIRES Wildlife Rescue in Australia (where Jasmine is from). I love the delicate texture on this pattern and I can’t wait to crochet it up! I have some We Are Knitters Petite Wool leftover from another project that is just asking to be made into a hat like this!

Do you like that ombre thing? The Ombre Magic Crochet Hat Pattern may just be the right hat for you! This cute hat comes in 7 sizes, from baby to adult with long ridge lines and a clever mix of two contrasting yarn colours create a beautiful dynamic hat with a lovely ombre effect. This hat is made with 2 strands of DK weight yarn held together and it’s a great way to use up those partial balls of yarn you’ve got kicking around! Make one for the whole family with a large range of sizes!

I was really excited to find this Megan Beanie Crochet Hat Pattern because now it means I don’t have to come up with a crochet pattern that mimics my Tufted Toque Knitting Pattern that I released yesterday. The diamond-shaped tufts add luxurious texture, so if you liked the Tufted Toque pattern I released yesterday, but you’re a crocheter and not a knitter, you can still make one remarkably similar!

The Cruise Cabled Beanie Crochet Pattern is a classic beanie with a stretchy brim. It’s worked from the bottom up with decreasing within the cables to close beautifully at the crown so it can be worn with or without a pom. This pattern is an intermediate/advanced level pattern and comes in 5 sizes. And don’t you just love that brim? So adorable. Also, I still love buttons on the brim of hats. So fun. But a cute faux-leather tag would look just as good.

Check out the stitch definition on this Remy Crochet Beanie Pattern! This easy level pattern comes with 6 sizes and is crocheted with worsted weight yarn. To get that stitch definition though, you’ll definitely want some roving yarn or another yarn with great stitch definition! Ruby Webbs has an excellent assortment of beautiful crochet patterns and you can even get a pattern for a matching pair of mittens!

The Market Puff Beanie Crochet Pattern comes in 6 sizes and has those gorgeous bobbles which make for a fun and interesting texture, with a definite handmade custom style. This hat is worked top-down with an easy brim and they make up quickly to sell at markets or craft fairs. And if you have a bunch of worsted weight yarn to use up, this is the perfect pattern for you!

The Market Waffle Hat Crochet Pattern is another crochet pattern from KathysCrochetCloset that is perfect for makers who sell at craft fairs. It’s written for three sizes: adult, child and toddler. They make perfect Mommy & Me hat sets, which are super popular at markets and craft fairs. Everyone’s going to want one of these gorgeous textured hats!

The Lark Beanie Crochet Hat Pattern makes a beautiful, cozy knit-look beanie that’s sure to become your new favourite hat! This beanie features a unique stretchy faux-stockinette stitch pattern and a squishy ribbed brim, with easy short-row decreases for the perfect shape! It works up quickly with less than 11 yards of bulky yarn and makes a great last-minute handmade gift! I love how this stitch pattern closes up the holes of crochet and makes a nice tight knit-like fabric! Definitely worth a try!

The Hanover Hat Crochet Pattern is a gorgeous hat that is styled for both men and women! This hat features an amazing finished texture that provides great WOW factor! The perfect hat for all the #4 yarn you have in your yarn stash. Works up very quickly with an amazing result that won’t disappoint. I love the unique brim and the textured body of this hat! And don’t forget a fabulous faux fur pompom! I love the extra-large pompoms by GingerSnapHandmade. They are gorgeous and luxurious!

I hope you’ve found your next crocheted beanie pattern to make. There’s still plenty of winter weather ahead of us here where I live, so an investment of an hour or two of crocheting up a gorgeous hat is well worth it! Grab one of these lovely crochet hat patterns today or pin it for later!

Farmhouse Crochet Patterns

One of the things I love about the farmhouse style is its rustic simplicity. It allows for imperfections and handmade touches. The style is warm and inviting because it embraces natural and comforting textures and fibres. There are so many trendy and modern ways to incorporate this homey DIY style into your home, especially at Christmas! If you’ve been wondering how you could bring some of this homey farmhouse vibe into your house, I’ve gathered a few crochet patterns here for you to try and bring some farmhouse inspiration into your decor!

I love wreaths. (Check out my Pinterest board full of wreaths!) and I love a wreath that can be used for more than just Christmas. This Farmhouse Jute Wreath Crochet Pattern would be perfect for spring or summer, but you could also pull it out for Christmas just as easily. Or make a different one decorated with more Christmas-y or wintery greenery. This is such a classic look and so so pretty. I think I need to make a couple of these this year.

Christmas or not, you can add some simple farmhouse charm to your front door by making this Buffalo Plaid Rug Crochet Pattern to welcome guests into your home. I love how the three colours come together to form the plaid pattern. Definitely fun to watch these kinds of projects come together!

Warm Winter Weather Wear

Warm Winter Wear

Well, the winter weather has arrived, at least where I live. It’s not too bad just yet, so don’t mistake my announcement for complaining. But it is definitely time to break out the knit and crochet accessories to keep ears, necks, heads and hands warm this season. If you’re looking for a pattern to make for a gift to give this season or to keep yourself warm this winter, I’ve got a great collection of fashionable knit and crochet accessory patterns for you!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off, these twisted ear warmers are all the rage this year. Great for keeping your ears warm while not messing up your top knot or ponytail. The River Ear Warmer twisted headband crochet pattern is a great and simple crochet pattern that a beginner could handle. The beauty of these little projects is that they only take a couple of hours and a partial skein of yarn. They make great stash-busting projects!

The Woven Headwarmer crochet pattern has a little more texture and has that lovely bowtie twist to finish it off! Super cute and what a fun pattern to highlight a soft and luscious yarn. If you only have one skein of beautiful and expensive yarn, this is your project. You can make up a few of these with that one gorgeous skein and have gifts for your closest friends!

Buffalo plaid is still super cute and trendy and it’s so super fun to see three colours of yarn come together to form this fun pattern. Don’t you love the large wooden button on this Buffalo Plaid Crochet Cowl Pattern? I love fun finishing touches like that. It makes a piece look so much more professional!

Here’s another gorgeous cowl to try out: the Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern is a textured granny-stitch style cowl that would be a great welcome back to crochet project for those whose grannies taught them the simple granny square and that’s all they really remember. This would also be a great pattern to highlight some special yarn you’ve been saving.

Check out the fringe on this June Berry Cowl crochet pattern… with buttons as well! I love the gorgeous texture on this cowl pattern and fringe is so on-trend right now. It’s a great time to get working on this beautiful scarf, for you or for a friend!

If you’ve always wanted to try cables, the Cascades Big Knit Scarf Pattern is a great first cable project. With bulky yarn and just one big braid cable through the scarf, it’s a great project to practice and learn. Just a tip: if you’re just learning, using a light coloured yarn will help you to more easily see your work and make it easier to fix any mistakes.

If you have a little more experience knitting, you might like to try knitting yourself this Chunky Mittens Knitting Pattern to keep your fingers warm this winter. These chunky mittens look so warm and cozy! My fingerless mittens just aren’t cutting it anymore; I’m going to need to get me some tips!

Ooooh! Or here’s another cute mittens pattern! The Bit of Honey Mittens Knitting Pattern has a sweet honeycomb textured stitch pattern that is subtle and gorgeous! This is a great project to spend a little more time and care with, but has a great finished result!

Don’t worry: I haven’t left the crocheters’ hands out in the cold. The Cadence Mittens crochet mitten pattern is a lovely textured crochet mitten pattern with a cable-like textured stitch to practice something new for crocheters looking for a little more of a challenge.

Now, THIS is a fun hat pattern! I love seeing the animal print that is making its way into knitwear! Check out this super fun Animal Attraction Leopard Print Pompom Hat knitting pattern! What a fun winter accessory!

And back to plaid. This one is a knitting pattern, though, and only made with 2 colours of yarn. The Super Bulky Buffalo Plaid Hat knitting pattern is a quick knit made with super bulky yarn; don’t you just love it with a big faux fur pom on top?

And while not exactly a wearable accessory, this Textured Christmas Crochet Stocking Pattern is a great project to get working on this time of year. It would make a lovely gift for a friend or loved one! Don’t you just love the beautiful bobble stripes? I love the natural coloured yarn used here, but I think any solid colour would look delightful in this pattern!

Crochet for Christmas

Are you looking for some ideas for some handmade gifts you can make for Christmas this year? If you can crochet, there are a myriad of ideas out there, absolutely worth your time to make! It’s so touching to receive a handmade gift, one that you know a lot of thought and time has gone into. It’s such a neat experience for me to be able to make handmade gifts for my family and friends… I think about them as I make their gift, so there’s the extra special gift of having spent hours and hours (and hours and hours) thinking about the recipient that is built into this gift of love!

So, if you want to give that kind of love this gift-giving season, you’ve still got plenty of time to crochet something amazing. And I have got some great crochet patterns for you!

A crocheted hat is a practical and lovely gift. This Brisk Beanie Crochet Pattern is trendy with its multiple textures and crochets up quickly with a 5 mm crochet hook. This is the kind of gift you can whip up in a couple of hours!

Isn’t this sweet vertical-striped Borealis Hat Crochet Pattern adorable? I love the rainbow yarn used in this example to make a super fun and brightly coloured hat for a child, or anyone who loves a pop of colour!

If you’re looking for something a little more Christmassy to make as a gift this season, check out this Vintage Crochet Granny Square Tree Skirt Pattern. Because it’s a vintage pattern, you can get the .pdf for just a couple bucks! And you can choose the colours that suit your recipients (or your own… ;)) to make a perfectly customized tree skirt!

If granny squares aren’t your thing, this Crocheted Nativity Tree Skirt Pattern might be more your speed. I love the simplicity of the two colours and the multiple panels with different scenes.

I also love this Rustic Wonderland Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern with a chunky yarn and fantastic wooden buttons, this would be perfect for a farmhouse Christmas style.

Who doesn’t love snowmen? These Little Snowman Crocheted Christmas Ornaments would make perfect co-worker gifts! I love the embroidered snowflakes on the hat and scarf and the little stick arms on the other snowman are classic!

Perhaps you’d rather make a Snowman Christmas Ball Ornament; this little crochet pattern would also make a great gift for co-workers. I think they would also go well at craft sales if you’re the kind of person who makes for craft sales. Simple and quick, these would probably come together in a couple of hours, too.

For a more traditional Christmas Ball Ornament Crochet Pattern, there’s this super colourful option, which I love and also think would come together quickly! How fun would a bunch of these be on a colourful tree? oOooOhh or they’d be even more perfect at a daycare or pre-school!? When I was a kid, we had glass ball ornaments, which could (and did!) break. Since I’ve had kids, I’ve only bought plastic ornaments so I wouldn’t have to worry about breakage; I could let my kids decorate and touch the tree without being a ball of worry. These would totally work to let kids decorate with!

While we’re in this colourful mood, you should also check out these cute Colourful Little Christmas Trees. I love the fun stripes and the beads that add so much character to these sweet little decorations. They would go along perfectly with those snowmen ball ornaments at your craft sale!

I’m also a big fan of these stockings! You can make this Mini Stocking Crochet Pattern into a bunting like these, with multiple colours, stripes, and follow the rainbow! What a fun decoration! OoooOooh… you could make 25 of them for an advent calendar bunting!

Here’s another great pattern to turn into a great garland: this Christmas Lights Crochet Pattern can be made into individual little ornaments or strung together for an adorable bunting! How fun are these?!

So, you see? With all these quick projects you could make in time for the holidays, you can really give a handmade gift to just about anyone you care about! Time to pull out that yarn and the hook, pick up a pattern and get to work! Or Pin it for later!

So many cute Christmas crochet patterns to make! Perfect handmade gift ideas! I can't wait to get started on these! Look at the little stockings! So adorable! #christmascrochet #handmadechristmas #crochetpatterns #crochetchristmas #craftevangelist
