Time for Toques? The Best Beanie Patterns to Knit & Crochet!

It’s still summer, at least according to the calendar, but these chilly mornings have me thinking about fall and the cooler weather ahead. So there’s no better time to get prepared by choosing a new warm hat pattern to make so you have plenty of time to make a warm new beanie for fall! I’m still loving the wonderful textures of hand-knit and crocheted toques, topped with fluffy faux fur pompoms! If you don’t have one of these gorgeous hats (or even if you do), it’s time to make yours today!

First up, the Leaves of Change Beanie Crochet Pattern. Check out the fun textured rows in this cute hat! The pattern includes 4 sizes and works up quickly, so you can make one for everyone in the family. How adorable would these be for outdoor family photos?! Find the pattern in the Hooks Yarns and Loops Etsy shop here.

If you’re loving texture, check out the Mountain Ridge Beanie Crochet Pattern from Sheepish Stitches. This pattern features a standard and a bulky version, so you can use whatever yarn you have on hand and have amazing versatility! Don’t you just love the gentle colour change of the yarn in the stripes pictured here? Gorgeous! Get the pattern here.

Do you crochet, but love the look of knitting? Then the Lark Beanie Crochet Pattern from Alyse Crochet is for you! This cozy and stretchy faux-stockinette stitch works up quickly and easily with less than 110 yards of bulky yarn! How’s that for a quick last-minute handmade gift?! Pick up the pattern here.

And of course, I can’t forget the knitters. This classic cable-knit Heartland Beanie Knitting Pattern is a lovely warm hat with an easy-to-follow pattern. You can’t get any more classic that this gorgeous braided cable. This pattern uses Lion Brand Heartland Yarn which is a #4 weight yarn. Find the pattern here in Knits by Jenny Boutique.

The Be Mine Beanie Crochet Pattern from Hook and Loop Boutique is another lovely crocheted toque pattern made with worsted weight (#4) yarn, so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting your hands on the right yarn to make this subtle beauty. This pattern includes both adult and child sizes so you can make one for most anyone! Get the pattern here.

I’m just loving all the different gorgeous textures on The Celestial Beanie Crochet Pattern. The different stitches come together in a lovely combination of textured stripes and again uses easy-to-source worsted weight yarn and comes in three sizes: toddler, child & adult. Pick up the pattern here in A Lil Loopy’s Etsy shop.

The waffle texture on this Winter Woods Beanie Crochet Pattern has me swooning! What a fun texture to crochet! This pattern will need some of your worsted stash, so it’s a great last-minute gift idea and even includes instructions on how to make your own faux fur pompom! Find the pattern in Kathy’s Crochet Closet’s Etsy shop here.

Another gorgeous worsted-weight yarn pattern, the Chain Ridge Beanie Crochet Pattern from Kathy’s Crochet Closet is a quick project and easy enough for the advanced beginner. The subtle texture on this cute hat is gorgeous and not distracting; it’s a great pattern to highlight a lovely, scrumptious yarn! Get the pattern here.

The bobbles on this Eileen Beanie Crochet Hat Pattern also from Kathy’s Crochet Closet (so many fun crocheted hat patterns from her!) are just adorable! The design features three colors of cluster stitches and spike stitches in stripes with a ribbed brim. You’ll adore this sweet toque! Pick up the pattern here.

The Pathway Beanie Crochet Pattern from Leesas Knotty Corner is a pattern that works up super quick because it is made with bulky weight yarn and is written in sizes from 0-3 months to extra large adult. I love this fun option of including 2 pompoms here. (Get my favourite pompoms from GingerSnap Handmade). This beginner-friendly pattern works up quickly with lots of gorgeous texture! Find the pattern here.

Update: this pattern is no longer available. Try one of these bulky weight yarn crochet beanie patterns.

Here’s another classic knitting pattern: the Stargazer Toque Knitting Pattern by Lamb and Co Designs. This pattern is a great way to put your intermediate level knitting skills to work and get a gorgeous fair-isle hat in a bulky, cozy wool!

Update: this exact pattern is no longer available from Lamb and Co Designs, but check out this very similar pattern from Smeeny Beanie Knits.

Knitters will also enjoy making this lovely Summit 9 Beanie Knitting Pattern. Also made with bulky (#5) yarn, this advanced beginner/intermediate fair isle knitting pattern has a lovely mountain design to inspire you to hit the great outdoors this winter! This cute hat would make a great holiday gift for the outdoor enthusiast! Get the pattern here from Alpine Knits Co.

If you are new to knitting, you might want to start here before you branch out into more complicated fair isle knitting. This Color Block Beanie Knitting Pattern from Love and Stitch Designs works up quickly with super bulky weight yarn and introduces the beginner knitter to color changes. Color-blocking is still very trendy, so enjoy mixing and matching your leftover stash to make a unique hat this fall! Pick up the pattern here.

I would be remiss to neglect to mention my own Tufted Toque Knitting Pattern. It’s a lovely pattern with plenty of interesting texture to keep you interested as you knit. Worked in the round on circular needles, this pattern knits up quickly with a gorgeous, pillowy result! The drape on the We Are Knitters Meripaca yarn is just divine! I highly recommend picking some up! You can find it in my Etsy shop here or on Ravelry here.

Prepare for Fall with Fantastic Knit & Crochet Patterns

Yes, it’s still summer, but makers know that making for the next season must start before the season starts! These things take time!!! The slightly cooler evenings have me thinking about fall. And let me tell you, I’m not alone! So many makers and designers are dreaming of cosy sweaters and crunchy leaves and warm hats. If this is you and you needed a sign that it’s time to start preparing for the cooler weather ahead, consider this your sign! Also, I know makers will understand this: if you want to give handmade gifts this holiday season, it is time to make some decisions, pick up some yarn and get at it so you have time and your poor fingers and hands don’t suffer last-minute stress-making! I’ve collected a fun combination of knit and crochet patterns today that would be lovely for making as gifts or for yourself for this fall. Check them out and 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.*

A warm hat is a stylish way to hide windswept hair and keep cozy in the fall evenings. This Harvest Braid Beanie Crochet Pattern from Sheepish Stitches is a beautifully textured crochet toque pattern. This multi-coloured beanie pattern means you can use up your stash yarn and make unique and gorgeous gifts for your friends and family with one pattern! With instructions included for how to make this hat in sizes toddler to adult, this is the perfect pattern to make for everyone on your list! Get the pattern here.

Fall calls for a little bit of a welcome inside your home, too. You could decorate your living room or hallway bench with this Hello Fall Pillow made with this Crochet Pattern from Two Little Birds Patterns. I love the pumpkin background and lovely script writing built into this intarsia crochet pattern. And makers who sell their wares, you are allowed to sell the finished items that you make from this pattern! Pick up the pattern here.

In love with pumpkins? Make these gorgeous little decor pumpkins with this Knitting Pattern for Fall Pumpkins from Emmacrochetdesign4U. There are 3 sizes of pumpkins included in this pattern. It’s the perfect quick-to-make autumn decorations. I’m seriously considering making some more of these for my living room this year.

If you’re a crocheter, you’re definitely not getting left out of the fall pumpkin craze! You can use this Knobby Little Pumpkin Crochet Pattern from Simply Made By Erin. The lovely textures on this sweet little pumpkin pattern and the chunky yarn make this the perfect rustic pumpkin for your fall decor! This pattern includes 2 sizes of pumpkins and if you use different size yarns, you’ll be able to make pumpkins in all kinds of unique looks! Find the pattern here.

I’m sure you can find all sorts of fun ways to decorate with this Knitting Pattern for Oak Leaves from elvesworld. These delicate little leaves strung together like you see here would make a lovely fall bunting. Or you could attach one to a gift for a perfect little tag accompaniment! They’d look cute attached to place cards at Thanksgiving dinner or a fall wedding, wouldn’t they? So many fun options! Pick up the pattern here.

Speaking of Thanksgiving: I know it’s early for Americans, but I live in Canada and our Thanksgiving comes a little earlier, so it’s not a bad time to start making this Thankful Table Runner Crochet Pattern from Two Little Birds Patterns. This intarsia crochet pattern has only two colours, so it might be a better introduction to intarsia crochet if you’re interested in the Hello Fall pillow pictured above. This lovely table runner will make a great centrepiece on your Thanksgiving table. Get ready and be prepared for the season by getting the pattern here today.

If you have little dogs, the cold weather might not be their favourite. If they like to wear sweaters, dress them in style by making them this Cabled Fall Dog Sweater Knitting Pattern from Dotty Patterns. This cute dog sweater pattern comes in 3 sizes, so you’re sure to find one to fit the pup in your life. Pick up the pattern here.

I know I’ve shared this adorable Candy Corn Beaning Knitting Pattern from Knifty Knittings before, but it’s just so adorable and so fall that I couldn’t resist sharing it again! This pattern calls for Lionbrand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, which is a 6 super bulky yarn. These hats knit up so quickly and the pattern comes in 7 sizes so that you can make one for the whole family! How adorable would your family be in fall family photos in these matching hats. I’m not sure my kids would go for it at their ages, but maybe I could have made it happen a few years ago. Find this super cute pattern here.

If you need a little hat for your little pumpkin, check out this adorable Pumpkin Hat Knit Beanie Pattern from Dune and Purl. Also made with super bulky yarn, this little hat comes in 4 sizes for all your little ones and I just can’t get over how quickly these cute hats come together! You could make a hat in an hour! Get the pattern here.

Of course, we can’t forget that Halloween is coming too. You can make an adorably spooky Monster Hat Knit Beanie in 5 Sizes with this pattern from Hand Knit Hugs. Usually you see this kind of novelty hat in crochet, but this knitting pattern is perfect for intermediate knitters who know how to knit, purl, pick up stitches and knit in the round. Pick up the pattern here.

And I couldn’t forget to include a crocheted monster hat version! Check out this sweet detailed Crochet Monster Hat Pattern from Bri Abby Designs. So many fun embellishments on this adorable monster hat pattern! You can mix and match and choose colours that will make an endless amount of fun options and unique designs! These fun monster hats will keep your little ones heads warm on a cold Halloween night or anytime they’re feeling the urge to be a little scary! Find this adorable pattern here.

If you’re looking to prep for fall maker fares or markets, you need to check out this collection of Five Fall Favourites Knit Hat patterns from Rosehip Lane Knits.

For a project that requires a little more time on her hands, this Honey Trail Shawl Knitting Pattern from Bekah Knits makes a delicate and cosy, textured shawl with a honeycomb border. A triangular shawl like this one can be worn over your shoulders or around the neck as a scarf and is the perfect transitional piece to the fall cooler weather. Knit in a sport weight yarn, this shawl will take a little more time, but the drape and detail is just lovely and would make a luxurious accessory for yourself or an extravagant gift for that special person in your life. Get the pattern here.

Now that we’re into some projects that are a little more involved, I think you should check out The Kyla Sweater Tunic Edition knitting pattern from Happy Love Co. This oversized sweater is perfect to throw on over a pair of leggings and boots for the fall. And this is the perfect pattern if you’d like to get into knitting garments. Oversized patterns are very forgiving and this pattern has fairly simple stitches and an easy pattern to work up. If you want to make someone an amazing gift, this would work well because you wouldn’t need their exact measurements to make this oversized sweater pattern. Get the pattern here.

I love the look of an Off the Shoulder Chunky Knit Sweater Pattern, like this one from Darling Jadore. Sexy and warm, how can you go wrong for fall? The heavenly texture of this sweater knit with bulky weight (category 5) yarn is just so plush and lovely for fall. Find this cozy pattern here.

And you can’t very well think fall without including a cardigan pattern. The Juniper Cardi Crochet Pattern from Knits N Knots Wpg is the perfect transitional garment for this transitional season. Generously oversized, this easy crochet cardigan pattern is made with a worsted weight yarn, the suggested yarn is Lionbrand’s Vanna’s Choice, but I’m sure any worsted weight yarn from your stash will work! Pick up the pattern here.

I hope you found a fall pattern that excites you to stay inside more this fall. It looks like we will all still be social distancing as this pandemic continues, so what better activity is there to avoid crowds than sitting at home with some yarn and making some gorgeous fall handmade items. This is your year to make all your holiday gifts and fill your home with handmade coziness! Pick up a pattern today or pin it for later so you can find it!

10 Fabulous Handmade Bag Patterns

To schlep or not to schlep, that is the question. What is schlepping? I’m not sure I’ve ever read a formal definition, but when used in context I would define it as “transporting (usually large amounts of) things from one place to another, especially by foot, especially multiple times, especially on vacation.” This is a word that entered my vocabulary via my older sister who, while claiming to despise schlepping of all kinds, tends to be the kind of person who has thought to bring everything you need when you didn’t even know you needed it. I admire her commitment to order and covet her organizational prowess, but just can’t seem to stay on top of the ever-present clutter and chaos invading my own home. But I can crochet little chair socks in a pinch, so it’s kind of a trade-off, ok?

Anyway, this post is dedicated to my sister who hates to schlep. Schlepping is reduced by having great bags to tote your stuff around in (also, by getting a beach-front room at the resort). So check out some of these great handmade handbag patterns you can make to reduce your schlepping, or at least do it in style.

I’ve been enamored with this Mochila Handbag Crochet Pattern for the last couple of weeks. I love the fun cherry/floral vibe paired with the geometric triangles. What a fun handbag, perfect for a boho vibe, getting out and about this summer, walking through town or in the park. I’m totally fascinated to try this tapestry crochet technique because the fabric looks so solid and secure. Once I get myself a set of tunisian crochet hooks (I have my eye on these ones from KnitPicks), I’m going to give this a try. Get this amazing pattern HERE.

If you can finally bring your bags to your market again, then you knitters could make up one of these sweet and lightweight Pike Place Market Bag Knitting Patterns to schlep your vegetables home. This little bag will fit easily in your purse and then expand to fit all your fabulous market finds and haul them home. Make it from washable cotton yarn and you can wash and reuse this lovely bag over and over. Find this sweet pattern HERE.

Don’t hoard all that handmade goodness for yourself, though. You can make this adorable Panda Purse Crochet Pattern for one of your littles (or yourself, I don’t judge). I don’t know what it is with my kids, but it seems to take them a while to get the hang of bags to haul their stuff in. The littlest will stumble his way from the house to the truck, tripping over his blanket, grabbing his favourite stuffy, an Etch-a-Sketch, his computer mouse, a different bag (that for some unknown reason does not contain the other stuff) and a bottle of water. Perhaps if he had an adorable stuffy-like bag, he would put it all in there (doubtful… but one can try!) Maybe it will work for your kid. Get this adorable pattern HERE.

By now we should all know how much I love lemons. I love the flavour of tart lemonade and the bright vibrant colour of lemons. It might be a bit of overkill (a lot of yellow and lemons have leaked into my wardrobe), but perhaps I’ll make one of these delightful little Lemon Bag Crochet Patterns to go along with some of my adorable yellow attire. Or maybe I’ll just hang it in my bathroom to contain a few odds and ends. If you want to make one yourself, you can get this cute pattern HERE.

I love the sophistication of this Bryce Bag by Lakeside Loops Crochet Pattern. I love the subtle colour blocking and the crocheted rope handles. This pattern comes in 2 sizes, so you can make a matching one for your little one. The gorgeous pattern has such a lovely simplicity to it with the single crochet stitch pattern crocheted in the round. And the colour options are endless! Stripes and colour blocking. So easily customizable! This should absolutely be your next project! Buy the pattern HERE.

Check out Stephanie’s new Camellia Tote Bag Crochet Pattern! Don’t you just love the different simple stitch patterns joined together in this adorable new tote bag? I love this lovely subtle mustard colour pictured here, but if mustard isn’t your thing, there are many more fantastic colours of Lionbrand 24/7 Cotton to choose from. Get the pattern by going to THIS LINK. Or pick up the kit from Lionbrand which includes the pattern and all the yarn you need.

I’m absolutely in love with this Boho Tote Bag Crochet Pattern! I love the tassel and the sling feel of this bucket purse. Perfect for the beach or just a super relaxed beach accessory. Pair this gorgeous tote with a pair of cut-off jeans, your favourite breezy tank and a large straw sunhat for a fun summer outfit. This quick and easy pattern works up quickly so you can make it in time for the weekend. Find the pattern at THIS LINK.

For a more sturdy and simple bag, check out this Simple Beauty Market Bag Crochet Pattern. You can schlep all your odds and ends in this gorgeous bag made with a cross stitch single crochet for a night tight fabric. Haul your crochet hooks and projects in this adorable tote or it’s sturdy enough to carry a bottle of wine! Don’t forget to add a beautiful custom leatherette tag to add that touch of professional flair to your handmade items. Find the pattern by clicking HERE.

Don’t worry, knitters: I haven’t forgotten about you (but seriously, learn to crochet because it is all kinds of awesome). If knitting is your thing–or even if it’s not totally your thing–then even a beginner knitter can handle this gorgeous and simple Drawstring Backpack Knitting Pattern. Patterns with simple stitch patterns like this one are so approachable for new knitters. I love it when you can surprise a beginner with a project idea that isn’t just a hat or scar (nothing wrong with hats, but hey, you’ve only got one head!) This backpack is just fabulous and you’ll get to say over and over again, “Thanks, I made it.” And can we just say how much of a mood this photo is. Like, I want to go to there. Get the pattern going to THIS LINK.

And we shan’t leave you knitters with only a backpack, you can also join the relaxed crew with this super chill Everyday Knit Bag Pattern. Haul your towel and dry clothes to the beach and swing this cute tote over your shoulder for an easy vibe that just screams summer. Make it in all kinds of stripes or solids to fit any outfit or look you’re going for. Find this pattern HERE.

I hope you’ve found a lovely bag pattern here to haul all your stuff so you can reduce the dreaded schlepping, especially summer schlepping, which is sure to be sweaty and cutting into your valuable relaxing time. No need to schlep if you can haul it all in one trip! Grab one of these great patterns today or pin it for later.

Summer Makes

Yesterday was a perfect summer day in Edmonton. A perfect day to spend outdoors in the garden! It was super calm and sunny, hardly any mosquitoes. I finally got to replacing the wood chips around my garden, which pretty much took the entire (work) day. It feels good to have that done and it was glorious to spend the day outside since I’ve been spending so many of my days indoors due to the rain, as well as working and working on our house! After I had finished working and took a lovely bath, I spent part of the evening sitting on our deck, enjoying a drink, some chill music and some knitting. So, I decided to collect a bunch of patterns for you to consider making this summer, for chill evenings on the deck, and relaxing mornings with a coffee.

*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.*

Last night, I was actually working on this cute little Pin Me Up Headband from Knitatude. This is one of her patterns that are free on her blog; it’s a pretty quick knit (though not as quick if you modify it to use sock-weight yarn, like I did-haha) and uses up smaller bits of yarn, which I love!

Chantal has also just released her new Tulip Wrap Tank Knitting Pattern which is an intermediate knit wrap tank top pattern that is written in 9 sizes (up to 5 XL)! I’m so pleased to see pattern designers include more sizes in their patterns. All bodies deserve cute hand-knit items; I’m so proud of the efforts that Chantal and other designers have made to increase their size offerings and make hand-knit patterns more accessible to more people. Get the pattern here.

I just love the simple refined look of this Ribbed V-neck cropped tank top knitting pattern. The delicate ribbing makes this easy/intermediate pattern look more difficult than it is. Made with a fingering weight yarn, it will be perfect to wear in the warmer summer months. This is also a size-inclusive pattern including up to 5XL! Get the pattern here.

For an even easier pattern, this Basic Bralette Knitting Pattern is rated “Easy peasy.” Love that. Super cute and quick knit made with a worsted weight yarn, it knits up quickly into a cute and sexy little bralette. Get the pattern here.

For a summer knit tank top that is more work-appropriate, but just as easy of a knit, check out this Silver Spring Knit Tank Top Pattern. You could easily wear this to the office (if that’s where you’re allowed to go these days) or throw a denim or leather jacket on it for a night out! Using worsted weight yarn, this pattern is also size-inclusive in 9 sizes all the way up to 5XL! This is a beginner level pattern and if you check out her Etsy listing, she has included a way to get the pattern for free on her blog. A printable pdf is so handy though, so for just a few bucks and to support this creative designer, get the pattern here.

Another Easy Peasy Tank Top Knitting Pattern! This sexy, relaxed knitting pattern is available in 5 sizes, up to 47-inch chest circumference. Perfect for the beach or just relaxing in the back yard, this intermediate pattern is quick and easy and uses baby cotton for a lovely soft and cool drape. Get the pattern here.

Of course, summer knits don’t have to just be tank tops! You can make yourself a skirt! This Marigold Skirt Knitting Pattern is even appropriate for the office! How cute is this?! This simple pattern uses your personal measurements so that you could make one for yourself and all your friends and everyone would get one just the perfect size for them! Get the pattern here.

For a skirt with a little more swing, The Flirt Skirt Knitting Pattern has a bit more flounce to it. This skirt pattern makes a high-waisted A-line skirt with an elastic waistband. This pattern is also size-inclusive, including 15 sizes, from a 22-inch waist to a 60-inch waist! Any size can wear this cute and flirty skirt! Get the pattern here.

Of course, you can always dress yourself head to toe in summer knits with this Beverly Knit Top and Skirt Set Pattern. This cropped knit tee and high-waisted mini-skirt is a fun and flirty coordinated outfit which features a faux cable ribbing and sleek stockinette stitch. This is a beginner-intermediate pattern available in three sizes (small, medium and large). Get the pattern here.

I know this collection of patterns has mostly been for grown women, but I couldn’t resist including this adorable Baby Bloomers with Skirt Knitting Pattern! How sweet would this be on a new little one this summer? The confident beginner can tackle this pattern as it uses just the basic techniques of casting on, knitting, purling, and binding off. Make these bloomers in 4 different sizes, from 3-6 months all the way up to 2 years with or without the adorable skirt! Get the pattern here.

I certainly wouldn’t want to forget the crocheters out there. You can easily make up this Field Trip Crochet Halter Top Pattern in an afternoon on the deck and have a cute little cropped top for festivals or the beach. While this cute top is written in one small/medium (A/B cup) size, it can easily be modified to fit larger or smaller sizes. Get the pattern here.

You can also crochet up a classy tank top using this Finesse tank top crochet pattern. An intermediate level crochet pattern, this tank top is pattern is written in 5 sizes and uses fingering-weight sock yarn for a delicate drape. Get the pattern here.

If you’re looking for a quick top project for summer, check out this Crochet Pattern for Summer Roadtrip Top. With an open, lacy stitch, this top crochets up quickly and is the perfect project to bring on a road trip or the perfect garment to travel with! This is a great project for beginners and works up quickly! Get the pattern here.

I hope you’ve got some inspiration for your summer makes. Pick up a pattern today or pin it for later!

Under the Sea

It has been a very very wet summer here in Edmonton. So much rain. Nearly every day. It’s making us all feel a little water logged. But you know, you can always look on the bright side and use it as inspiration! So I’ve been thinking about sea creatures a lot lately. Fish of all sorts! I think that knitted and crocheted fish are so fun. So, while we’re maybe stuck indoors because of the rain, we can make some lovely amigurumi sea creatures! I hope you enjoy this fun collection of patterns.

Of course, immediately when I think of Under the Sea, I think of Ariel the Mermaid from Disney’s Little Mermaid. This adorable Amigurumi Mermaid Crochet Pattern is a sweet nod to Ariel, while still having a unique and decidedly Green Frog Crochet style. Love this sweet doll pattern!

Of course, where would Ariel be without her faithful friend, Flounder? So, you certainly can forget to make one of these adorable Yellow Flounder Fish Crochet Patterns! This would be great toy for the sibling of a Little Mermaid lover. I know the little brothers always loved to play and be part of what the big sister loved. This is such an adorable flounder amigurumi pattern. I can’t wait to make one!

Everyone loves dolphins! Dolphins are such smart creatures and this Daphne the Dolphin Amigurumi Crochet Pattern would make such a unique stuffed toy to give to that special dolphin loving kid! This little dolphin will work up in just a few hours of beginner crocheting stitches! It’s a great contender for a first amigurumi project.

Let’s not forget the knitters in the bunch. Many times there are not a lot of options for knitted toys. Crochet is my preferred yarn craft for making stuffed animals, but this Finding Nemo Inspired Clown Fish Knitting Pattern is a great likeness to the clown fish from Finding Nemo! Fun bright orange and white and black stripes make this sweet stuffy very recognizable to the Finding Nemo fan in your life!

We can’t forget Dory (even if she can forget us)! This Dory Blue Tang Fish Amigurumi Knitting Pattern is another great knitting pattern for the Finding Nemo and Finding Dory series fans. Such a fun little throw pillow/stuffed animal fan for the underwater themed room or for the kid who is still a big fan.

Of course, if you’re going to recreate Finding Nemo, you definitely need Nemo’s aquarium friends. This IndoPacific Reef Fish and Coral Set of Knitting Patterns is the perfect pattern to make all your favourite aquarium fish from Finding Nemo, plus this bonus coral! So fun. If you have a real aquarium and you’ve had trouble keeping fish alive or can’t be bothered with the maintenance, you can totally make your own set of aquarium sea creatures to populate your aquarium and never have to clean a fish tank again!

“Fish are friends, not food” That’s what this Shark Toy Knitting Pattern reminds me of. His big toothy grin is both hilarious and frightening. You’ve got to have just the right recipient for this hilarious knitted stuffed toy, but I think there are plenty of funny characters in our lives that would know just what to do with this toothy grinned shark!

For a less menacing stuffed toy fish knitting pattern, check out this sweet Piranha toy fish knitting pattern! It has a zipper for its teeth! And an adorable under bite! How fun is that? I love this sweet one made in purple and pink, but your can knit yours in any colour you please!

Of course, you don’t have to just make stuffed animals to celebrate an under the sea theme! You can make one of these Molly Mermaid Baby Photo Prop Set Crochet Patterns for the new little expected one in your circle and have a lovely little photo shoot with your newest little mermaid!

Or for even more fun and functional funkiness, make one of these conversation-starting Magikarp Pouch Crochet Patterns and carry around a little wristlet packed with your necessities. How fun would this be when you’re a little more dressed up, but are carrying this whimsical little pouch?

Or if you just need to carry around something smaller (a key, perhaps?), make one of these little Crochet Mermaid Tail Pouch Necklace Pattern! A little nod to mermaids and sea creatures with this cute little fishy tail! Hold some spare change, a lip balm or a special trinket close to your heart in this adorable little pouch necklace!

This Campervan Travels Day at the Beach Cushion Crochet Pattern might be as close as most of us are getting to under the sea these days. A little nod to the beach and the ocean, as we dream of travelling again. Make up one of these cute pillows while you wait out your storm.

I hope you enjoyed this round up of under the sea inspired knit and crochet patterns. Which one will you make today! Pick up a pattern today or pin it for later!

Life Given You Lemons? Make Lemon Crafts!

You know what they say: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Or lemon-inspired crafts! I’m on a bit of a lemon kick these days. I actually love the actual fruit. I love to have a wedge of lemon squeezed in my water… delicious! But I also love all the pretty lemon things. I want to add a bit of a pop of lemon to my new bathroom, so I’ve been exploring lemon crafts to include (and also, I get wandering a little bit, so some of these are definitely not suitable for the bathroom). I hope you enjoy this lemon-inspired crafty round up!

*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 just love this impressive Lemon Tea Cosy crochet pattern! The pile of lemons on top is so real-looking with their little stem end! And I love the subtle little nod to experienced crocheters who would recognize the stitch in the body of the tea cosy as the lemon peel stitch. Super cute. It would look so fun in my kitchen!

Or check out this super great vintage set of lemon patterns for the kitchen! A rug, potholders, stool covers, and placemats. What a fun set of patterns. I love the simple in the round design, but with the little teardrop shape of the lemon! Such a fun pattern idea! Great vintage lemony vibe!

You don’t just have to decorate with lemons, you can make knitwear, as well! Check out this adorable lemon knitting hat pattern! This cute little hat may look a little complicated, but there’s just some simple shaping at the crown to give it that lemony profile and a little stem and leaf to top it off. It would make a great gender-neutral baby shower gift and comes in 4 sizes: 0-3 months, 6 months, 12 months and 2T.

For a slightly different profile for a darling Lemon Hat knitting pattern, you could try this one. Which one do you prefer? I like the rolled rim of the second one, but I think either one would make an adorable baby gift!

Or you can crochet a cute little lemon treasure cake! I don’t think the photos do justice to this stunning piece of art! How fun would it be for a little girl to have a cute little lemon cake decoration, but to be able to fill it with her little treasures!? What if that little girl was in her 40s… that wouldn’t be so bad, right? Love this adorable crochet pattern!

On a more practical note, this Lemonade and Limeade Crochet Coaster Pattern is a fun and summery crochet pattern to rest your lemonade and keep it from sweating all over your furniture!

One of the options for decor in my bathroom is a small piece of embroidery. I’ve never been the most avid embroidery fan, but I do love the look of some of the options out there these days, like this Lemons Cross Stitch Pattern. I think it would look sweet hanging in my new bathroom (still not done yet: working madly!)

I think I like this pretty little Lemon Tree Embroidery Pattern even more though. I love the pretty flowers and the different stitches included here. The beauty of a pdf pattern like this is that you can buy it and download it and get working on it if you already have the supplies in your craft room!

I also found this super cool C2C graph for a lemon slice blanket. I love the close-up and modern feel of this lemon. C2C stands for corner to corner, which means you start in the corner and work through the graph diagonally is not something I have done much of, but it does kind of interest me. Perhaps when I’m up and ready again for another big project! I tell ya, renos take a lot out of a girl!

I’ve been thinking about play food amigurumis in a new way recently. I think they’re so adorable, but my kids are too old to be interested in playing with crocheted food, so I’ve been thinking that perhaps I could insert a sponge in them for filling and make them out of cotton and put them by the sink in the kitchen or the bathroom to clean with. What do you think? I think this Amigurumi Lemon Crochet Pattern would be a perfect candidate for such use. If you have ever done this, please let me know any tips or tricks you have!

Perhaps a whole lemon would be a bit easier to get a handful of suds to clean the dishes in the kitchen? What do you think? Also, this little Lemon crochet pattern is a great deal: under $1.50 CAD (so that’s probably like $1 USD!)

There’s also this super tiny lemon wedge crochet play food amigurumi pattern! It looks like it’s almost as small as a real lemon wedge! This designer has such mad crochet skills! What a great-looking pattern! It uses a 1.4 mm crochet hook (which is pretty small!), but look at the final result! This would make such a fun addition to a crochet play food set!

These adorable lemon slice crocheted pillow patterns would make a fun addition to any outdoor space! I love bright and cheery deck decor, so I think I could easily add one of these cushions to my deck! What a fun idea. It could be a great addition to a kids’ bed as well.

And I just had to include this darling Lemon-inspired crocheted doll pattern! I love everything about this sweet little doll, including her lime wedge pony-tail holders, her fun pigtails and adorable little smile! This sweet little doll would make a lovely handmade gift and looks like a ton of fun to make!

I hope you enjoyed this round up of crafty lemon-themed patterns. Pick up a pattern and get crafting today or pin it for later!

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.

*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.*

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?

UPDATE February 2024: It looks like I waited too long to make this rug, as the pattern and designer are not available anymore. I found I pretty similar pattern for you, though: the Diamond Lattice Rug Tapestry Crochet Pattern from Leelee Knits.

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 from IRAROTT Patterns? 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 from Crochet Pattern Corner 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 from Hello Wildflower Co. 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 from My Crochetery! 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 also from My Crochetery? 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 from Ruby Webbs. 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 from Crochet Pattern Corner 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 from The Little Hook Crochet 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.

2024 UPDATE: Unfortunately, this pattern is no longer available, but check out these other Easter Bunny Gnome Crochet Patterns for some good options!

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!

Spring Sweater Patterns

While technically “spring is here,” it is currently snowing here in Edmonton. While it’s not unusual for it to snow here this time of year, it is getting a little wearisome. I quite love springtime when it’s cooperating, though. I love the longer days, the warmer weather, the grass emerging and turning green from under its cover of winter snow. I love planting things and getting outside again. I can hardly wait for those things! But while it still snows here, I may as well think about the indoor activities of knitting and crocheting while I look forward to what I will wear in the coming warmer months ahead. Will you join me? Here’s a collection of 10 spring sweater patterns for you to choose from to make while we anticipate soon being about to wear them outside!

It’s a great time to #StandWithSmall so check out these great patterns below and support a designer with a small purchase from Etsy. I love promoting Etsy patterns for this reason! I know many of the designers are moms and side hustlers trying to eek out a bit of a living from their creative work. For more great unique and handmade items from small indie businesses, check out the editor’s picks here. It’s a tough time for a lot of people right now, so if you’re able to throw some support to small businesses, it means so much to us!

While not technically a sweater, this Crochet Ratchet-Up Ruana Wrap Pattern is a perfect option for spring! Throw it over your shoulders in a chilly office, or wear it as an open breezy accessory for spring walks. This easy pattern would work up quickly with a lacy crochet stitch and would be suitable for a confident beginner. It’s worked up all in one continuous piece, so no seaming! I love the tassels on the end of this piece! This is definitely a contender for a spring make for me!

I just love this Calla Lily Cardigan Crochet Pattern from All About Ami. This beautiful and romantic cardigan can be worn two ways and if you make it in the recommended Cotton Bamboo yarn, you will love the drape and feel of this garment!

The Light Breeze Knit Sweater Pattern is another great pattern by Stephanie from All About Ami. This sweater is a perfect transitional weather garment. I’m a huge fan of striped shirts, so this cute sweater is so appealing to me! This relaxed and oversized sweater is the perfect comfy sweater to wear in the evening chill! Stephanie’s patterns are always easy to follow and great for beginner knitters!

This Painted Sky Shrug Beginner Knitting Pattern is another easy knitting pattern that works well with a hand-dyed yarn. It is worked up in the garter stitch, which is just straight knitting (no purls!) for you new knitters. It’s a great opportunity to try out a garment when you’re just learning to knit. This is a lovely garment to wear in any season!

Here’s another lacy lovely crocheted cardigan pattern! The Light Snow Oversized Crochet Cardigan Pattern features a trendy oversized fit and beautiful open stitchwork. It uses chunky yarn, so it’s sure to work up quickly and if you’re a new crocheter, it’s at an easy level, so it’s a great opportunity to make your first crocheted garment!

This vintage Women’s Loose Fit Top Knitting Pattern is an 80’s knitting pattern, but I think it could totally pass for a trendy garment right now if you’d just calm your hair down (haha!). The lovely thing about vintage patterns that you can get on Etsy now is that they’re in pdf format, but they’re also really inexpensive: this cute pattern is just a couple of bucks!

Knitatude has a bunch of cute knitting patterns to check out, including this great Striped Down Cardi Knitting Pattern. Recommended for an advanced beginner, this light cotton cardigan pattern comes in sizes small to extra large. I love the colours Chantel chose for this cardigan… grey, yellow and white are totally my jam… in stripes to boot!

There’s something about the bobble sleeves of this Indy Cardigan Crochet Pattern that just has me completely enamored. I think I should make one of these fun button down cardigans! This looks perfect for fall… and wouldn’t it be cute in a mustard yellow? Oh yes! This pattern is size-inclusive, written in 9 sizes from XS to 5XL and has step by step instructions with detailed photographs!

The Breckenridge Knit Topper Pattern is another great breezy knit cardigan pattern to work up for spring with a comfy fit and airy, cotton fabric. This is another easy beginner knitting pattern, so if you’re looking to take this opportunity where we’re all house-bound to learn to knit, this is a great project to work on! The oversized drape means that there’s plenty of room for error!

I just love this lacy Odyssey Cardigan Crochet Pattern from ambassadorcrochet! This open cardigan is a gorgeous cardigan for those cool spring days and breezy summer nights! It’s lightweight and lacy design make it the perfect layer accessory for any outfit. I definitely love my longer, drapey cardigans, so this lovely pattern is a definite contender!

I hope you found a pattern here you’d consider making for the warmer spring days ahead. It’s a great time to settle down and learn a yarn craft and most of these patterns are beginner level patterns, so if you’re up for it, you can absolutely learn a new craft in the next couple of months! Go #standwithsmall by grabbing a pattern today or pin it for later!
