Yellow is my favourite and sunflowers are so cheery, so here’s a beauitful Sunflowers bouquet crochet pattern from ViTasja that will bring sunshine to the love of your life. We all need a little more sunshine in these dark days, so crochet some gorgeous flowers that will last!

If you’re looking for a more simple pattern, try making this Crochet Flower Brooch Pattern also from ViTasja. Even just three of these little flowers bunched up and pinned on a card will make a quick, unique and delightful gift for a teacher, coworker or friend.

Of course, roses are the flowers of love. Happy Patty Crochet has so many gorgeous, realistic flower patterns, like this Crochet Rose Pattern, you have to try out at least one! This impeccably designed pattern is perfect for the intermediate crocheter and makes a realistic looking rose that is sure to impress!

Can you even believe that this Crochet Hyacinth Pattern which is also from Happy Patty Crochet is crocheted? Incredible! Such detail and fine work! Learn how to make it from a master!

Isn’t this Zinnia Flower Crochet Pattern from Happy Patty Crochet just stunning? These beauitful flowers will be well-worth the time you invest in making such a gorgeous bouquet!

I am a big fan of tulips. Perhaps it’s because they’re one of the first flowers up in the spring, after a long winter, they’re an early sign of the hope of warmer weather to come. This Crochet Tulip Pattern from Happy Patty Crochet means you can enjoy the beauty and hope of spring anytime you like!

Nothing quite so classic as a spray of roses in a bud vase. This Spray Rose Crochet Pattern also from Happy Patty Crochet are perfect for thick and lush bouquets and centrepieces as well as small-scale arrangements or appliques for a corsage or a headpiece. This pattern includes instructions for a spray rose in the 3 stages pictured here: closed, half-open and open, as well as patterns for the sepals and a leaf.

The Calla Lily is one of the most elegant flowers there is! And this Calla Lily Crochet Pattern from Happy Patty Crochet is a stunning re-creation! This pattern is for the more experienced crocheter, so if you’re new to crochet and you love the look of this, get some more practice under your belt, learn some skills, improve your stitches and make this a goal project!

Carnations are the flower that last for weeks! Well, a carnation made from this Crochet Carnation Pattern will last even longer! Isn’t it incredible how realistic it looks! Check out Happy Patty Crochet’s Etsy Shop to choose your favourite flower if you haven’t found one from this stunning group that I’ve selected here.

I love orchids. I am curringly waiting for my own real orchid to send up another flower stem, but winter is typically a dormant season, so I just need to be patient. This Moth Orchid Crochet Pattern from Pippa Patterns Crochet will never experience a dormant season, though, and it’s gorgeous blooms will stay open and fresh for years without any watering or fertilizer!

I hope you found a flower pattern to make for the love of your life (or even just for yourself to enjoy!). Pick up a pattern and some yarn/crochet thread today and get making! Or pin it for later!

Easy Care Pets – Amigurumi style!!!

This year has been a year for getting pets. And that’s great, I think. I mean, if you like a pet and you’re going to take care of a pet and you can tolerate that pet smell and don’t mind cleaning up after and caring for another living being, absolutely, get a pet. That is just not my jam. I’m not saying I don’t think petting a dog or cat for a while isn’t nice and that it wouldn’t be nice to have a dog to lick up the spills, I just can’t get with the other stuff. There’s a lot of things I don’t like about them and they outweigh the things I do like. I also know the great responsibility that comes with pet ownership and it’s not a priority I want to make right now. So, it’s not that I’m not an animal lover, I just love them enough to know they shouldn’t live with me. So if you’re like me and you think that puppies are adorable and they’d be fun to cuddle every now and again, but you’re not ready for the commitment of a living pet, have I got the thing for you! Amigurumi Pets!!! Crochet your own pet with one of these great patterns and enjoy the cuddly softness without the vet bills and poop bags. Here’s a bunch of cute patterns for you to check out.

*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.*

This Red Poodle Crochet Dog Pattern from Amber Craft Store is so realistic looking! It comes written in four languages (English, Dutch, German and Russian) and its genuine fur look comes from a thick fur yarn like Lionbrand Go For Faux Yarn. The pattern also includes instructions for how to make the nose from oven-baked clay! Incredible! It makes an 18″ tall dog when made as written, so it’s a perfect huggable size! If you’re looking for a gift for a kid who really wants a dog, but you’re not ready to commit yet, this would be a great handmade option!

While hedgehogs may be quite a bit less work as a pet, they’re still a living being, but if you’re not ready for that, Honey the Hedgehog is a great amigurumi hedgehog you can make and hold in the palm of your hand! Mocha Stitch has this adorable little pattern with textured popcorn stitch fur to make this sweet little hedgehog. The pattern is 7 pages long and has step-by-step, detailed photos to guide you along the way.

Maybe a Jack Russell puppy is more your style? Amber Craft Store also has this sweet little Jack Russell pup pattern for you! Again, such a lovely realistic-looking crocheted puppy. Such lovely detail on this adorable stuffed toy. The pattern is an easy-to-follow 12-page pattern with plenty of pictures and instructions for how to make a life-like dog face, how to paint the dog and how to make custom nose and eyes. This would be a great gift for someone who is missing a special dog in their life!

A Labrador puppy is super adorable, but they’re also a lot of work. This little Labrador Retriever Puppy Amigurumi Pattern from AmiAmor6 is a great alternative that is way less work! Ok, so maybe you have to make it, but once you’re done, there’s almost no work after that! This sweet pattern has 17 pages of detailed, step-by-step instructions and more than 30 colourful close-up photos and 6 videos to guide you in your making journey! Plenty of help to make this sweet little toy dog!

While a little less realistic looking, this Beagle Dog Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Patch Cat Crafts makes a 13 cm (5.1″) tall puppy that will work up quickly… you probably even have time to whip one up before Christmas if you need a last-minute Christmas gift for a special someone. You can quickly download this 11-page pdf document from Etsy and get crocheting today! If you have intermediate skills, some worsted weight yarn, some polyfill stuffing, and some safety eyes, you can get working on this today. Just click this link for the pattern.

If you’re interested in amigurumi and you haven’t come across ChiquiPork patterns yet, you need to stop right now and check out their shop. This absolutely adorable Lolo the Dog Amigurumi Crochet Pattern has a Disney-like quality about it. It reminds me of the Dalmation puppies from 101 Dalmations. I love the spot detail around the eyes and big floppy ears. So sweet.

If you’re not a crocheter, but you want a custom-made amigurumi dog, check out Ema Plushies who will take a photo of your beloved dog and turn it into an adorable stuffed crocheted toy. Such a sweet gift idea for a friend or family member with a beloved dog, or for someone who is missing a beloved dog.

While there is no shortage of cat amigurumi patterns available on Etsy, there are surprisingly few realistic-looking patterns. This Crochet Cat Pattern from Crochet by Natalia has a brushed yarn fur that adds a realistic feel to this super sweet little kitty. Something about babies is incredibly adorable: baby humans, baby dogs, baby cats. Super cute. Getting a live kitten means you’ll eventually have a cat, but making a kitty stuffy means you’ll always have a super-cute kitten. And no litter to clean (or allergies to deal with in our case)!

While less realistic, this sleepy cat crochet pattern from Firefly Crochets is an easy striped tabby amigurumi cat pattern that is sure to delight any cat-lover. Plus, he is sleeping, which makes it remarkably realistic (haha!). This easy pattern works up quickly and uses worsted weight yarn, which means you probably already have materials on hand, so you can download this pattern, sit down, and get crocheting!

Just getting started and don’t have a stash of worsted weight yarn? Check out KnitPicks selection of affordable worsted weight yarns.

Ok, while not exactly a pet (even here in Canada), I couldn’t ignore this adorable Paddy the Irish Elk Amigurumi Crochet pattern from The Little Hook Crochet! Just so so sweet and cuddly, this amigurumi would make such a lovely gift! He might get mistaken for a moose, but you can always make the correction or choose not to. You’d have to get right to work today to get him finished in time for Christmas, but wouldn’t he make just the most adorable Christmas gift for a special someone?

I hope you enjoyed this collection of easy-care pet ideas to make. Crocheted pets are the perfect pets, in my opinion! Easy care, super sweet and loveable and truly a labour of love! Grab one of these adorable patterns, support an independent designer and get making today! Or pin it for later and share it with your friends.

Pattern round up of adorable crocheted amigurumi pet patterns! Such a sweet handmade gift idea for a pet lover! So cute! And some of these are so realistic-looking! Can hardly wait to make that poodle! #amigurumipets #crochetpets #crocheteddog #crochetcat #amigurumicat #amigurumidog #patternroundup #amigurumipatterns #CraftEvangelist

FREE PATTERN: Gnome Tea Towel Topper Crochet Pattern

Hello friends! I am taking a slight diversion from my regularly scheduled sharing of other people’s patterns and here I am sharing my own. To celebrate this generous Christmas season, this pattern is FREE!!! It’s right here! No clicking away, no scrolling forever and ever. No wondering how you’ll ever find the pattern! It’s right here. No more clicks!

*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 wrote this pattern today, so it’s super fresh and it’s super-fast, just in time for last-minute gifts for friends, family and colleagues who you want to give something special to, but you have no idea what to get them? Got a nephew who is too old for $20 in a card, but you still want to give a little gift to? Perfect! Got a mom who has everything? She would be delighted by this little handy character! Got a co-worker you hardly know that gave you an unexpected gift and you want to reciprocate? I gotcha.

Meet Snaanbag, the Tea Towel Topper Gnome! Even better, Snaanbag isn’t just a tea towel topper, he’s a tea towel holder! That’s right! He’s got a wooden ring that holds your tea towel so you can easily wash it. You can make this adorable gnome in neutral or Christmassy colours, depending on your mood or decor. He’s a little grumpy, but if you dry your hands quickly on his beard, you’ll be ok.

Because I just wrote this pattern today, it has not been tested. I welcome your feedback, if you want to provide it! If you catch an error or provide me with helpful feedback for improving the pattern and include good pictures of your gnome topper, I will send you a free pdf of the pattern! Get in touch with me via the contact me page; I would love to hear from you!

Snaanbag the Tea Towel Topper Gnome

Supplies

Crochet Hook: H/8 or 5.00 mm hook
Yarn Weight: (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight (I used Red Heart Super Saver)
Yarn colours: Hat: Grey (or colour of your choice) Nose: Beige (or colour of your choice)
Stitch markers (1 of any kind, 2 locking), yarn needle, needle & thread for stitching button
Embellishments: 60 mm (2.5 in) wooden ring – measurement taken from the outer edges of ring. (You can also use a covered elastic hair tie), 15 mm (.6 in) button, small amount of polyfill for nose

Finished Size

Tip of the hat to bottom of nose unfolded, laid flat, length: 22 cm (8.625 in).
Folded & buttoned: 11 cm.
The hat only unfolded, laid flat: 20 cm (8 in).
At the widest point of hat, width: 11 cm (4.25 in)

US Terminology

Rnd = Round
MC = Magic Circle
SC = Single Crochet
St = Stitch
YO = Yarn Over
Inv Dec = Invisible Decrease

Special Techniques

Invisible Fasten off – Pull yarn tail through loop and thread onto a yarn needle. Skipping the stitch next to the last stitch of the Rnd, insert the needle under the top 2 loops of the next stitch (where you would insert your hook for a stitch) and pull yarn through. Insert the needle into the middle of the last stitch of the round and down through to the back of the work. Secure yarn by weaving the yarn under 2-4 stitches; do not cut excess tail yarn. (Crochet Arcade has a good tutorial if you need more visuals.)

Invisible Decrease – insert hook under front loop of the first stitch and leave the loop on the hook. Insert hook under front loop of next stitch, YO, pull through 2 (front) loops on hook, YO, pull through 2 loops on hook to complete SC. (All About Ami has a good tutorial!)

Hat

Rnd 1: 5 SC into a MC. (5 sts)

Rnd 2: 2 SC in 1st st. Place marker in 1st st of Rnd. SC to marker. (6 sts)

Always place the marker back in the 1st st of the new Rnd.

Rnd 3-21: Repeat Rnd 2 until you have 25 st in the Rnd. (7-25 sts)

Rnd 22 (add the ring): 2 SC in 1st st, SC 4, SC 8 around the wooden ring: Place wooden ring under working yarn, behind the work (inside the hat). Insert hook in next stitch and YO under the ring, pull through 1 loop, YO above the ring and pull through 2 loops, completing the SC (8 times total). SC to marker. (26 sts)

Rnd 23-32: Repeat Rnd 2. (27-36 sts)

At this point, the wooden ring should be hidden when the hat is laid flat. If it is not, repeat Rnd 2 until it is. If you need more rows here, your st count total will differ from the pattern going forward.

Place nose positioning markers: Before continuing, place 2 locking markers 2 sts from start of Rnd and 10 sts from start of Rnd on the right side of the work. These will remain in place until the nose is positioned.

Rnd 33 (make the button hole): 2 SC in 1st st. SC 12. Ch 1. Skip next st. SC around to marker. (37 sts)

Rnd 34: 2 SC in 1st st, SC around, treating Ch 1 as a st. (38 st)

Ensure you can fit your button through the button hole you have created.

Cut yarn, leaving a 46 cm (18 in) tail.

Use the Invisible Fasten Off technique, weaving the yarn in the direction of where the nose will be placed and DO NOT CUT the excess yarn tail. We will use this yarn to secure the nose in place.

Attach the button

Lay the hat flat with the ring at the back. Secure the button in between Rnds 3 & 4, in the centre of the front of the hat, when laid flat.

Nose

Rnd 1: 5 SC in MC. (5 sts)

Place the marker in the 1st st of Rnd 2. Always place marker back in 1st st of Rnd.

Rnd 2: 2 SC in each st around. (10 sts)

Rnd 3: *2 SC in st, SC. Repeat from * around to marker. (15 sts)

Rnds 4-6: SC around to marker. (15 sts)

Rnd: 7: *Inv Dec, SC. Repeat from * around to marker. (10 sts) Stuff firmly with polyfil.

Rnd 8: Inv Dec around to marker (5 sts)

Cut yarn leaving a 20 cm (8 in) tail and pull through. Thread a yarn needle and weave the needle through the front loops of the 5 stitches of the last Rnd. Pull to tighten and fasten off. Weave the tail inside the stuffing of the nose cut the excess yarn.

Attach the nose

Position the nose with Rnd 1 facing out and between the 2 markers on the underside of the hat along Rnd 5 of the nose. Using the excess tail yarn from the hat, attach the nose with by pushing the needle through one stitch of Rnd 5 of the nose and to the front of the hat. Backstitch along Rnd 32 of the hat onto Rnd 5 of the nose, using the previously placed markers to position the nose. Secure and weave tail through 5-10 stitches of the hat and ending in the nose. Pull slightly and snip tail yarn so the end disappears into the stuffing of the nose.

That’s it! Loop your new little friend to your stove handle or your dishwasher handle and add a tea towel (I like these ones!) to the wooden ring and you can dry your hands on his beard until it’s time for it to be washed!

I hope you enjoyed this free pattern! As soon as I get it formatted into a pdf, I’ll add a link to an ad-free printable pdf pattern that you can download from Etsy or Ravelry for a small fee. Until then (and afterwards!), enjoy it for free here on the blog! If you liked this pattern, please share it on Pinterest!

Delightful Knit & Crocheted Christmas Amigurumi Patterns

As we become further and further buried under snow here in Edmonton, there is an extreme pull to sit under blankets and cuddle up with a blanket and a project. And there are few things more satisfying to make than Amigurumi stuffed toys! They are relatively quick to make, they often allow you to use up yarn you already have in your stash and it’s just so fun to see the character of them come alive as you work! These darling crocheted little creatures make impressive Christmas gifts for loved ones, delighting little ones and adults alike. Check out this collection of adorable Christmas amigurumi crochet (and a couple of knit!) patterns for you to make this season.

How cute is this Penguin Crochet Pattern from Cute Toys By Tatiana in his winter cap and scarf? The accessories on this adorable little penguin are actually knit, so this is a great opportunity for those of us who can do both of these crafts to show off our skills! There’s no shame in not knitting a scarf, though. I’m sure if you can follow this pattern, you can figure out how to make a crocheted hat that would be suitable for your little penguin!

This Snowman and Red Nosed Fawn Crochet Pattern from BVoe668 reminds me of the 1964 stop motion film Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, which I loved as a kid. The snowman isn’t quite right for the Burle Ives character, but that reindeer is pretty close. Such an adorable little crochet pattern to make for your holiday display. I love having Christmas decorations that the kids can touch and play with instead of everything being fussy and hands-off. This is a great way to invite littles into the cheer of the Christmas season!

What a delightful Cuddle-Sized Christmas Tree Amigurumi Pattern from Storyland Amis! This is the perfect little tree to decorate a child’s bedroom, or to satisfy a particularly tree-loving kid’s desire for a Christmas tree!

How much fun is this sweet Gingerbread Man Amigurumi Pattern from Planet June? These little guys would make the perfect wrapping accessory on a gift or add a hanger and they make a great tree ornament! You could make a whole bunch of them and string them up as an adorable gingerbread man garland! They would also make a super fun holiday addition to a child’s play kitchen! So many fun options for this quick and easy pattern.

Of course, we can’t forget Santa. This Crocheted Santa Amigurumi Pattern from R Nata is cuddle-sized when made with the yarn called for, at 20-22 cm tall. Such a sweet little toy for a little one to enjoy!

I just had to share this super cuddly Santa Crochet Pattern from Crochet Wonders Design! This Santa reminds me of the Santa in the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer holiday special as well, with his modern, stylized moustache and beard. He’s made with velour blanket yarn, so it makes the cuddliest stuffed toy! So soft!

Christmas calls for all kinds of elves and gnomes, so if you want to make yourself an adorable bearded gnome for your Christmas decor, try this Amigurumi Christmas Gnome Crochet Pattern from Happy Dolls Hand Made. The pattern includes both the large and the small gnome and they make the perfect whimsical holiday decor! And bonus: if you have kids or grandkids: unbreakable!

This Crochet Christmas Elves Pattern from R Nata is just the thing to bring some Christmas cheer and whimsy! I love patterns like this that come with delightful details that bring such joy as you work them up. Cute little accessories and details such as stripes and ruffles really add to an amigurumi pattern!

I just love the cartoonish character in this Rudolf the Reindeer XL Amigurumi Pattern from Il Dikko. If you have not checked out Il Dikko’s Etsy Shop before, you really should! So many whimsical amigurumi patterns filled with character and personality. I can’t wait to make one of these fun patterns one day!

If you like the gnomes with their eyes buried beneath their hats and beards, check out this Crocheted Snowman Amigurumi Pattern from Pink Pumpkin Studio. Such an adorable little snowman to sit on your mantel or nestle in your Christmas tree. I love everything about this sweet little snowman!

My dear knitter friends, there just aren’t as many cute knitting patterns out there when it comes to amigurumi. Crochet just works better for these little characters! It’s not too late to learn, you can always pick up a class from Craftsy. But I do have a couple of cute Christmas amigurumi patterns for you, including this fun Amigurumi Knit Penguin Pattern from Amy Gaines. Again with the penguin in the hat and scarf. Just something sweet about that.

Crochet Patterns are Among Us

If you have kids that are the same age as my kids (10-15), you have heard of Among Us. A few weeks ago, we got Mr Evangelist a new phone and our youngest got a hand-me-down phone that was new enough to be able to download Among Us and he was pretty happy about that. Conversations overheard with the three of them talking about it is a little weird since they’re talking about being the imposter and killing people. … uh yeah, this is fine, right? Anyway, they’re all the rage right now and I think every kid is going to want their own Among Us character for Christmas. So I collected some Among Us inspired crochet patterns for you here to make your own fun gifts for some kids that you love.

*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, this is the basic character, a crewmate… and a dead crewmate. Let’s not dwell too much on their anatomy, shall we? You can use this Among Us Crewmate and Corpse Crochet pattern from Frannito Crafting to make these two characters and any Among Us loving kid is sure to recognize them and enjoy them. The fun is that the crewmates are all kinds of colours, so you can use whatever your kid likes and any yarn you have on hand!

So apparently hat-wearing is big in among this crew, so this Among Us Crewmate + 6 Hats crochet pattern from Toys by Ludmila is a fun way to add some additional flair to your Among Us character. Personally, I like the plant hat. Very fun.

Again, we have a Crewmate Corpse crochet pattern from Fibita, but with a more interactive/dynamic element. The Crewmate can be “alive” and then they can take the top off to reveal the corpse. I love handmade toys that have a dynamic element like this.

If you like the interactive corpse crewmate pattern, you can bundle it with a regular crewmate and a ghost in this Among Us Crochet Pattern Set, also from Fibita. I’m not really sure what the ghost does, but every time I talk to my kids about this, their answers are always really basic, so like, I bed the ghost just like haunts things or moves things around… and it’s the ghost of a murdered crewmate…

Here’s another fun set of patterns: An Among Us Crewmate and 6 Hats Crochet Pattern from Studio Wow Toys UA. Again, there’s so much creativity here with the hats: a plunger, a banana peel, a fried egg, a roll of bathroom tissue, a crown and a flamingo floatation device. So much fun. I love the fried egg and the flamingo floatie.

Here’s a Halloween themed Among Us Inspired Crochet Pattern from Props Toys for you to try out. Don’t you love his flip-top head, his felt teeth and untamed tongue? Such a fun character to make! The best thing about these simple little characters is how quickly they work up. You can have a fun handmade gift in just a few hours!

Can you ever have too many hats, though? So much fun and a great way to play another character. This collection of 5 fun Among Us Hats/Accessories crochet pattern from Fibita is a great way to add a lot of character to the plushies you’re going to make for your Among Us fan.

Or for a fun gift that’s not a toy, you can turn your little Among Us fans into Among Us Crewmates with this fun hat pattern from Tippery & Co. These fun little characters are simple and make such delightful handmade gifts.

I hope you find an Among Us inspired crochet pattern to make for your Among Us fan. Grab one of these fun patterns and get making today! Or pin it for later!

Check out this fun round up of Among Us inspired crochet patterns. Kids are loving this video game right now; these will make awesome quick handmade crocheted gifts this Christmas! #crochetpattern #crochettoys #AmongUs #amigurumi #amigurumipatterns

Diamond (Patterns) are a Maker’s Best Friend

This week in my perusing the world wide web for the best patterns, I stumbled upon a couple of super cute diamond themed patterns. It made me think about how I had seen others and I would like to bring them all together for you so we can enjoy the variety of beautiful patterns inspired by this simple geometric shape! It’s wonderful to see all the different ways designers have of incorporating this shape into knit and crochet (there’s even a bonus macrame pattern!) patterns, in simple and complex ways. Most of these patterns are easy beginner level patterns, so they make a great first project for a new knitter or crocheter.

*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.*

The Chasing Diamonds Crochet Blanket Pattern from My Crochet Place UK is an easy level pattern, perfect for the confident beginner. This pattern can be made in a solid pattern, as shown here, or with stripes to add more interest. I love the way that the diamond pattern gets highlighted in this solid colour, but I can see a lovely hand-dyed yarn working well here. Made with Aran weight yarn, there is still plenty of flexibility to use whatever yarn you have from your stash. The pattern comes with instructions for 2 sizes of blankets, so you can get the size that works for your space. Get this easy pattern here.

The Labadee Diamond Bobble Pillow Crochet Pattern from Debrosse NYC is such a fun celebration of textures and diamonds! I love Debrosse NYC patterns: they’re so modern, sleek and stylish.
