How to Support Ukranian Makers

This week the war in Ukraine enters its third month. I can’t imagine what it must be like to experience war like this. My great great grandparents immigrated to Canada from this part of the world in the 1910s when there were rumours of war, and I am grateful for the peace and freedom I’ve known my whole life in this country. With so many people in Ukraine experiencing upheaval and uncertainty (at minimum), it is hard to know how to help. There are many charities and places to donate, and maybe you’ve already heard about this or done this, but I saw a great idea on Instagram in the early days of the war to support Ukrainian makers: we can buy digital files from them on Etsy! The Etsy shop owner doesn’t have to do anything (like make a product and ship it to you) because the process is automatic and there’s no physical item to worry about. You get something beautiful or helpful to use and the designer has some income. I’ve already bought a couple of crochet patterns and an embroidery pattern and I’ve been on the lookout for more. So, I’ve rounded up some great patterns and digital files from Ukrainian designers for you to support some makers who could use it right now.

There are a number of prolific designers from Ukraine and many of them design the cutest amigurumi toy patterns, like this Big Sloth Crochet Pattern from Your Loved Toy. I always try to include a link to the shop of the patterns I feature because I want my readers to be sure that these aren’t all my designs and if they like them, they can check out more of their patterns, but it is especially important for the purposes of this post. Check out more of Natalia’s patterns at Your Loved Toy if you like this Big Sloth Crochet Pattern.

You can search for more patterns or digital files yourself, by going to Etsy, searching “digital files” or “crochet pattern” or “knitting patterns” and then click “All filters” and enter “Ukraine” in the Shop Location filter. Or just click one of those linked words, depending on what you’re looking for. Make sure to read the description to ensure you are buying a digital product and not a physical product, or you might be disappointed with delays and may cause unnecessary stress to an indie maker who is already struggling right now.

Blue Rabbit Toys has sooooo many lovely amigurumi crochet patterns. I’ve featured many of Irina’s patterns before and didn’t realize she was based in Ukraine. So many fun and unique little crochet patterns. Pick up this Spirit of Apple Tree Amigurumi Pattern to help support her and provide some stable income during this tumultous time.

Make a cute Plush Bumble Bee Amigurumi with this quick and easy pattern from Toyslvanna. This pattern is beginner level and it uses chenille yarn which is thick and bulky so it works up quickly to make this sweet little bee in no time!

This adorable little Easy Crochet Octopus Pattern from Easy Crochet Designs contains 7 pages and 20 photos and is a perfect pattern for beginners! It would make a great lovey for a baby, as all of the accessories are sewn on and there are no buttons or safety eyes.

It’s almost spring and eventually it will be warm enough to be able to wear one of these cute tops outside! If you get started now, you’ll be all ready to go as soon as the temperatures allow!

Another adorable amigurumi pattern for you to choose! This Monster Sam Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from JuliHMtoys is a super cute little monster toy you can make for a kid that you love. What an adorable way to support an indie designer in Ukraine!

Just when I think I can wrap up this post, I find another adorable pattern from another (different!) Ukrainian designer, like this Spring Big Gnome Crochet Pattern by PropsToys

And since there were so few knitting patterns in this week’s round up, I’ve got this Knitted Flat Christmas Elf Doll Knitting Pattern from SimplyToys13. Again, it’s not the Christmas season right now and it comes every year, so if you want to be prepared, why not start early? I know I’m always either knitting or crocheting last minute or coming up with something different because I didn’t give myself enough time to make something special for someone.

Go grab a few patterns or digital art from some Ukrainian designers today and help them get some cash flow during a time when they might not have other reliable ways to meet their needs. Pin it for later and share with your friends!

Support Ukrainian makers by buying digital products! The designer has already done all of the work and the entire process is automatic!

Adorable Dolls to Crochet for Doll Lovers

Even though I don’t have children who play with dolls anymore (did I ever, really? My kids were not really doll kids), I still love the look of an amigurumi doll. They are so sweet and there are so many creative and adorable patterns for darling little dolls and stylish little clothes, it makes me wish my kids were a little more into dolls! So, I’ve collected a bunch of cute amigurumi doll crochet patterns for you to peruse and choose to make one for the doll lover in your life!

*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 sweet Molang Girl Crochet Doll Pattern from Bearybearnita Design is a sweet little bunny-loving doll that comes with a sweet little matching bunny and a hat to match! This doll will be about 13-15 cm tall when finished, so a perfect little pocket-sized doll to travel with and to be held sweetly in a little one’s hand!

The Nancy Doll Crochet Pattern from Chikchikhandmade comes with her very own goose! How adorable are her sweet little overalls with the embroidered flower and even the delicate detail on her socks and shoes! What a fun little doll to make, suitable for decoration or toy! This pattern makes a slightly larger doll, about 30 cm (11.8 inches) and the overalls, shirt and shoes are removable. The pattern is instantly downloadable as a 33 page PDF with 77 images to make it easy to follow.

Many of these patterns call for Yarn Art Jeans cotton yarn, which isn’t carried in a lot of my local stores. Yarns Various carries this yarn at an affordable price ($2.40 CAD).

The Little Match Girl Crochet Pattern from Pink Mouse Boutique (one of my favourite shops for amigurumi patterns!) is a creative little amigurumi doll based on the story of the Little Match Girl. The finished little doll will be about 3 inches tall, but if you make it with a larger yarn & hook, it could be bigger.

This Sweet Little Crocheted Doll is called Miss May and she is from the collection of dolls from Fluffy Tummy. This doll pattern also comes with instrustions for crocheting her adorable little dog with its very own dog sweater! How cute is that?! This sweet doll comes with a removable outfit: a cute crop top, casual fit jeans and slides.

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

The Victoria Crocheted Doll Pattern from Evano Crochet is a stunning doll pattern based on the character of the neice of Sherlock Holmes! Like her uncle, Victoria is a detective and her obsession is to discover the identity of Jack the Ripper! This is an advanced level pattern available in English and French; it includes 75 photos in 21 pages of written pattern and calls for 100% mercerized cotton thread and 2.25 mm hook. She stands about 30 cm (12″) tall when finished.

This slightly creepy Alice and Mad Hatter Crochet Pattern from Pinkbunnyland includes instructions for both dolls. Aren’t the details on these dolls just stunning? Buyers are raving that these patterns are easy to follow with clear instructions and result in beautiful finished projects. Make your own classic dolls with this great pattern!

Does this adorable Happy Adventure Crocheted Dolls Amigurumi Pattern from Ginansily NiMarya remind you of anyone? A cute little old man and his neighborhood boyscout? This sweet little pattern is a great little nod to the characters from Disney’s Up!

Does a mouse count as a doll? I think so! Especially if it has a wardrobe! The Mice Family: Basic Mouse + Clothes Crochet Pattern from La Fabrique Des Songes is a 24 page PDF instand download with written instructions and step-by-step pictures. When finished using the recommended yarn and hooks, the finished mouse measure around 14 cms. I love it when doll patterns have removable clothes and bundles to make a whole playset!

Ok, if a mouse is a doll, is a potato a doll? I don’t know, I just couldn’t resist sharing Pete the Potato PDF Crochet Pattern from Tiny Friends Crochet. This quick and easy little pattern is whimsical and would make a delightful little last minute gift idea for a quirky friend or colleague.

Sweet Slippers from Amazing Knit and Crochet Patterns for Toasty Toes

We’re out of our deep freeze here in Edmonton, though the weather dropped for a couple of days. I still find myself in need of slipper-wearing in the house. My family has never been big into slippers, so it’s hard to motivate myself to make something for them that there’s a high chance they won’t use. I made a lovely pair of slippers for myself a couple of years ago. They’re holding up well, but there’s some wear on the interior sole. (I used Phentex for the exterior sole, so that’s holding up great!) So, it might be time for me to consider a new pair. I did just make myself a pair of socks and they are surprisingly warm. But given how long it takes me to get from deciding to making, it’s probably time to start looking for a new pair now. So, I’ve rounded up a baker’s dozen knit and crochet patterns to consider and I’ll let you take a peek at them, too.

*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 Crochet-Knit Slipper-Clogs Crochet Pattern from Pdf Pattern Design is the pattern I made last time. They turned out great! It is a well-written pattern with clear instructions. It uses the Waistcoat stitch, a knit-looking crochet stitch that makes for a nice solid fabric, unlike the holes that you normally deal with in crochet. It takes a little bit of practice if you’re not familiar with it (hint: crochet LOOSELY!). Perhaps I should just go make myself a nice felt lining like this example has and that would solve my problem!

But sometimes it’s fun to make something new. This pattern from Sirins Crochet claims to be the Easiest Slippers Ever Crochet Pattern. These are made by creating two rectangles and then sewing them together. I think it looks great! It comes with instructions to make any size you want! So if you are a beginner crocheter looking to make a pair of slippers, or just your first project, this just might be the pattern for you! They look stunning and are so simple!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

Here’s another Simple House Slippers Crochet Pattern, this one from Exclusive 72. This pattern is pretty basic with minimal shaping, another good pattern for beginner crocheters. The pattern includes all sizes and would be great for both men and women. These work up quickly in a tight stitch, making them durable, thick and fluffy.

I just love the look of these Dakota Crochet Casual Slippers from Magic4Kids. Using super bulky yarn and a large hook, this pattern works up quickly and includes sies for kids and adults, so you can make a pair for the whole family. I love the structured look of this slipper! I’ve got some super bulky yarn around that I don’t have a plan for, so this might be just the thing!

I have been eyeing up patterns like these Crochet Converse Slippers from Crochet Milie for years! I’m sure I would have already made them if I didn’t imagine giving them to my husband, him being genuinely delighted with them, wearing them a couple of times and then never touching them again. It sounds cynical, but we’re in our 20th year of marriage; I know how these things go. (But they’re so fun looking!)

These delightful Crocheted Snowman Slippers from Tutti Frutti Patterns are a whimsical, yet easy crochet pattern to make this delightful little pair of winter-themed, novelty slippers. And made with plush, velour yarn, as shown here, they look sooooo cozy! (I think my youngest kid would be a fan of these!)

Speaking of fuzzy slippers, I have been working with faux fur yarn lately (I just released my Furry Mouse Muff Crochet Pattern a couple of weeks ago) and I think it would be very fun to make some slippers with it. This Women’s Cuddly Faux Fur Slippers Crochet Pattern from Knit And Crochet Ever After is topped with a cozy faux fur, which looks so comfy… and maybe that would be enough faux fur? I don’t know, I’m thinking there would be something so divine about slipping your feet into fully faux fur lined slippers, but then… maybe they’d get too hot and sweaty and uncomfortable? Maybe keeping the cold breeze out at the ankles would be sufficient?

This crochet pattern for these Women’s Modern Faux Fur Fuzy Ugg Boot Slippers from The Cozy Knot Crochet also look suuuuper cozy! You can also make these with a non-faux-fur yarn as well, which would be easier to crochet, especially if you’re less experienced. The trick with faux fur yarn is knowing where to put your hook; you have to crochet by feel and if you’re new to crochet, it’s a little harder to do if you can’t see your stitches.

Looking for some faux fur yarn? Lionbrand Go For Faux is a great option!

If you’re looking to make some baby slippers, I thought this was a great idea from The Northern Moose: this Crochet Baby Booties Pattern comes with SOLES. How cool is that? I often seen beautifully handmade slippers and then they have these lovely leather or suede soles and I feel like that’s such a barrier to me making them. I love this idea of being able to get the pattern and the sole together. Very fun. So you get the digital pattern when you first buy it and then they will send you the size of sole that you order. How great is that?

Ok, knitters, you were so patient through all those crochet patterns. And now I have a few knitting patterns for you! Starting wit this super affordable Moccasin Slippers with a Cuff Knitting Pattern from Kween Bee. It is also available for free on her website, which is included in her pattern listing. But if you like to print a version off, or be able to make it without internet access or your phone going into sleep mode, this pdf printable is less than $2. This is an easy-level knitting pattern, so if you’re looking for a beginner slipper pattern, check this one out!

The Shalom Slippers knitting pattern from Dole Valley Girl Knits are worked seamlessly from the cuff down. Knit with bulky weight yarn, these soft and squishy slippers will fly off your needles and warm your toes! They come in sizes from small (women’s 5-6) to xl (men’s 10.5).

Here’s another Easy Knit Slipper Pattern from Knitting Socks Lydmila. I love the shape of these simple, minimalist slippers.

Wondering what knitting needles I use? KnitPicks Interchangeables are my go to needles!

Finally, for an adorable Baby Booties Knitting Pattern, this pattern from Baby Jumbuck Knits makes a sweet, quick and easy to knit baby slipper with a minimum of finishing. They would make a lovely baby shower gift. The pattern comes in 3 sizes, newborn-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-9 months. How adorable are these little booties?!

I hope you found a pair of slippers to crochet or knit. I’m still trying to figure out which ones I’m going to make. If you made a decision, go grab yourself a pattern today. If you’re still deciding like me, pin it for later!

If you find yourself cooped up in your house again this winter avoiding the plague or extremely cold temperatures, perhaps it would warm your heart to think about making your loved ones a Valentine’s Day gift.

What better way than thinking about them while you make them something handmade? Check out these great patterns and kits for some great handmade Valentine’s Day gifts!

*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 couldn’t resist this adorable little Hedgehog with a Heart Crochet Pattern from My Crochet Wonders, so I snapped it up shortly after it was released! Little amigurumi patterns like this are delightful because they’re so quick and rewarding to make up! You can sit down a couple of times in a weekend and have an adorable little stuffy. I was still in winter holiday mode when I saw this and I thought since it’s so ball-like, you could hang a little string from it and have a super sweet little tree ornament!

This Fleece Teddy & Bunny Crochet Pattern from All About Ami would be such a thoughtful gift for a little one that you love. It is made with Lionbrand Go for Fleece Yarn, which works up quickly and fills in all the little “holes” of crochet and is super fuzzy and cuddly. I think I have at least one kid who would still enjoy one of these delightful little stuffed animals!

It’s not always easy for knitters to find cute stuffed animal patterns, but this collection of 6 Teddy Bear Variations from Mary Jane’s Tea Room has a variety of options for you to make six different teddy bears. Sweet little skirts and bows for the hair and adorable little shorts and shoes options allow you to customize a cuddly knitted bear stuffy for someone you love. This would make such a beautiful heirloom gift to pass down through generations!

Wondering what knitting needles I use? KnitPicks Interchangeables are my go to needles!

I just love this super cute Crochet Pattern of the Ice Cream Monster Yeti Amigurumi from amiguruku. This sweet little crochet pattern is nearly free (it is listed as free, but the cost is just the cost of listing and selling it on Etsy). I love the big wide closed-mouth smile on this adorable little amigurumi monster. He’s not exactly Valentine’s-themed, but who wants hearts all over everything all year round? This guy is so sweet and fun, you know you want to make one! And it’s such a deal of a pattern!

Stephanie from All About Ami just released her new Chinese New Year Tiger Crochet Pattern. This is another beautiful pattern by Stephanie; her designs are always great and also available for free on her blog. She is definitely a designer worth following!

The Tiger is just the lates in Stephanie’s collection of Chinese New Year Zodiac Amigurumi. You can get the whole adorable pattern bundle here.

This Valentine Gnome Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Happy Dolls Hand Made is certainly Valentine’s-themed, if that’s what you’re going for. The adorable little heart appliques really read Valentine’s, which makes this little guy the perfect Valentine’s themed gift!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

Ok, now switching to an amigurumi that is not Valentine’s themed at all, but is just so unique and full of amazing details, I could not leave out this Crocheted Highland Cow Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Cottontail and Whisker. This pattern is not for beginners, but what a gorgeous result, don’t you think? So much fun! If you’re looking for a unique gift for a unique person, this pattern definitely fits the bill!

While stuffies definitely delight, I just love a functional gift! This Toastie Bread Bag Crochet Pattern from Lil Crochet Bean is such a sweet example of a functional yet so adorable amigurumi! I feel like I need this little bag to just slip my phone and wallet in and throw across my body. Who says that a grown woman can’t carry slightly silly accessories?

I usually post knit and crochet patterns here, but there are so many more crafts out there for you to explore. This Vintage Heart Garland Felt Craft Kit from Art Kulture Store contains soft wool-mix felt, a needle, DMC embroidery thread, toy filling, ribbon and instructions, templates and a stitch guide to make six vintage felt hearts. Everything you need! You could give this kit as a gift to a crafty person you love or you could make it yourself and give the resulting garland as a gift (or keep it for yourself!).

If you’ve ever wanted to get into macrame, this is the perfect little starter kit! It contains everything you need to create this cute wall hanging!

Of course, what better way is there to say I love you than with a warm Super Chunky Knit Hat? The Super Chunky Ribbed Colorblock Knit beanie Pattern from Smeeny Beanie Knits. This colorblock beanie is super trendy and super easy for the new knitter.

Looking for super bulky yarn? Lionbrand has some great options for super bulky yarn!

Gifts You Can Make with Crochet

I fully intended to be much more obnoxious about getting on you all to get your handmade gifts made earlier this year, but I fear I have failed you. But it is only November!

I shared this funny quote in my Instagram stories the other day, so I think you all should see it.

Patterns to Make Your Own Plants and Hangers

I don’t know if your plant collection has been growing during this global panorama, but mine has! Plants are life! If you’re running out of places to put them, then I’ve got a great collection of knit and crochet planters for you to make so you can hang them on your wall or from your ceiling! If you have not had much luck with your plants, I even have a few patterns to knit or crochet your own plants, which require next to no care or green thumb at all!

*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 Air Plant Holder from La Leh Crochet is perfect for silk plants or air plants. I bet you could even get a small succulent in this little planter and hang it from a wall just about anywhere. This simple little pattern will work up quickly and use up a bit of scrap yarn. This kind of project is perfect to bring in the car with you (while someone else drives!) and make on the go!

This set of 5 Hanging Crochet Planter Patterns from Of Mars is a great way to get a variety of planters made for your home. How fun would a collection of these hanging at various heights in a window be? One of the things I like about this kind of planter is that you could totally reuse some jars for your plants and then crochet one of these beautiful planters for a super eco-friendly and wallet-friendly stylish hanging planter!

While I myself have not done macrame since my Girl Guide days in the ’80s (unless you count my friendship bracelet making days of the ’90s), the Luna Macrame Wall Plant Hanger Pattern from cotton dreamer is totally inspiring me to pick up some macrame cotton and tie some knots! I love it when you can hang plants on the wall and this wall hanging combines the beautiful macrame wall hanging design with the function of a plant hanger! Beauty! If you’re intimidated by hooks and needles, macrame is a very approachable craft!

But if you’re already prepared with some crochet hooks, this gorgeous Boho Plant Hanger Crochet Pattern from brittany alice crochet is another great option for a simple plant hanger. I can’t wait to be finished these renovations so I can spend some time and focus on choosing and making some of these planter hangers to decorate my new spaces!

This Hanging Sloth Planter Crochet Pattern from Crochet Club Store is so adorable and makes a fun little conversation piece. It’s a fun way to put a little planter in a child’s room or the neutral colours camoflage this functional amigurumi to fit into any grown up space!

These simple and adorable Plant Pocket Crochet Pattern from Sass And Stitch Crochet are perfect for air plants or silk plants or other little bits of greenery that you can just tuck into a little pocket on the wall! The more I look at this functional little crochet pocket, the more I think I might even be able to use one of these in my kitchen for plastic lids! What else would you tuck in a little pocket like that?

I love how crochet can mimic other crafts, like this Macrame-Inspired Boho Plant Hanger Crochet Pattern from Simply Made By Erin. The chevron pattern around the planter would make in blend in nicely with modern decor. I love these planters made in neutral colours like this, but anything that would work for your space is acceptable. What would you do? Bright colours or muted neutrals?

There have not been a lot of options for knitters this week. But if you’re a knitter and maybe you don’t have much of a green thumb, the Prickle of Cactus Knitting Pattern from Made bye M knits is just the thing for you. This set of three knitting patterns makes adorable knit amigurumi succulent plants for you to pot up in dollar store terra cotta planters and then completely forget about until it’s time to dust them every few month or so! If you thought cacti were low maintenance, you should try knit cacti!

While this Crochet Tiger Lily Flower Pattern from Pippa Patterns Crochet is definitely more involved and is not a one-evening project, the work will be worth it! This realistic looking crocheted tiger lily is stunning! I missed this pattern in my February bouquet round up, but I didn’t want to forget it altogether! The dreaded lily beetle has been ravaging gardens here in Edmonton and it’s a constant battle for gardeners to keep their lilies looking beautiful with this vicious pest around. You won’t have to fight the lily beetle if you just crochet yourself some lilies instead!

Or knit yourself a little succulent. The Succulent Plant Knitting Pattern from Knit the Stars is a quick and easy pattern that will use up some of your scraps and wouldn’t these darling little plants make perfect co-worker gifts or teacher gifts or housewarming gifts?

I have not had a lot of success with growing vines, but I love it when plant hangers have long draping foliage, so I’m definitely eyeing up this 5 Crochet Plant Vines Crochet Pattern from Keeleys Crochet. The beauty of these no-maintenance plants is that you can hang them up high in a place that is difficult to get to and you don’t have to worry about watering them.

I think the plant that has gained the most popularity over the last 16 months is the monstera. This unique plant is just stunning to look at and the beautiful fenestrations just make it such an inspiring plant. If you want some plant-inspired decor, but are not actually looking for plants, The Monstera Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern from MYI Home Decor is just the thing. The tapestry crochet monstera leaf is fun and would go with just about any home decor.

Grab one of these great patterns and get making today or pin it for later!

It’s Time to Start Making Christmas Gifts

Ok, yes, it seems weird to start thinking about Christmas as we’re just getting started with real Spring and Summer, but if we don’t start thinking about it now, we end up in a mad, hand-cramping, making frenzy in December or giving homemade gift cards for something we need to finish up in January-or worse-buying something! But if we start now, get some ideas, make some plans, and start working consistently, we can use the love we have for our friends and family to guide our making plans over the next 6 months and still enjoy holiday festivities come December. And won’t it be so exciting to present our loved ones with beautiful, thoughtful handmade gifts that we’ve been waiting with anticipation to give them?! So, once a month over the next 6 months, I will gather up a group of ideas and patterns to get us excited and motivated to start making some great gifts for our friends and family!

*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.*

You thought I was going to start with complex patterns, didn’t you? But The New London Wool Roving Pillow Cover Knitting Pattern from The Autumn Acorn is a quick and easy pattern made with wool roving, so it works up super quickly and makes a thick, warm, and luxurious accessory. I’ve included it here for a couple of reasons: you might need some time to locate the materials you need, but the project will be quick and you’ll get the payoff of being able to check an item off of your make list, which will help keep you going!

Again, we don’t have to make elaborate gifts for everyone. The Hillcrest Cowl Knitting Pattern from Peony Knits is a relatively quick and easy knitting pattern. This would be a great project if you’re a new knitter and you want to make some stylish gifts for your friends.

This beautiful Blossom Wall Hanging crochet pattern from 1 Dog Woof is a lovely home decor crochet pattern that will look fantastic on your friend’s wall! It would be a great wall decor for a baby’s room. Also, it can be hung upside down for a rainbow look: same pattern, two entirely different looks. Just a different placement of the tassels. How fun is that? You can totally whip up one of these for your friend with the boho chic vibe.

1 Dog Woof also has this great crochet pattern for the Plume Sweater, which is a batwing sweater, consisting of 2 seamed panels. This sweater is so versatile; it can be worn year round and it’s so on-trend, your fashion-loving friend will adore this sweater. It is size-inclusive, with sizes from XS to 5XL

If you’re less confident about your recipient’s size, you can make this Boho Poncho with Fringe Crochet Pattern from A Frayed Knot Boutique. This fun poncho can be a great way to use up some half skeins of yarn and you can make them in just about any combo for a different look each time.

Again, just because we’re starting early doesn’t mean we need to make everyone a sweater. The Abigail Monogram Towel crochet pattern from Two Little Birds Patterns is a great, thoughtful gift to make for your colleagues or the women in your small group. It’s also nice to work on a small project that uses light cotton yarn during the warm summer months.

The Wildrose Shoulder Bag Crochet Pattern is All About Ami‘s latest pattern using her signature wildrose granny square. It’s a great pattern to work on through the summer months and would make a delightful gift for your sister or friend. Who doesn’t need another a lovey, relaxed handbag? Also, you can get this pattern as part of a Lionbrand Kit, which includes the pattern and all the yarn you need to make this project.

Have you been meaning to try out the buffalo plaid trend? This classic pattern is used in the Buffalo Plaid Sheepskin Lined Cowl Crochet Pattern from Whistle and Ivy and just screams winter and Christmas. You will need to track down some sheepskin fabric for the lining, but the crocheted buffalo plaid is quick and fun to work on and it’s amazing how a few colours of yarn come together to make the plaid pattern. This would make a great gift for a friend or family member.

We can’t forget the fun of making handmade toys for kids. Amigurumi are crocheted stuffed toys that are so much fun to make and give. Check out this fun and adorable Crochet Yoga Lemur Pattern from Yarns of My Heart. This little stuffed toy is completely wired so it can be bent in all sorts of shapes for a fun and interactive toy!

Do you know a cat-lover? Make them their own snuggly kitty in just a few hours. This little bundle of 4 Amigurumi Kitty Cats Crochet Pattern from Ami Amore allows you to make different kitty cats for all the cat-lovers you know!

It's not too early to start thinking about making handmade Christmas gifts! Here's a great collection of easy knit and crochet patterns that make great handmade gifts! #patterns #PatternRoundUp #KnittingPatterns #CrochetPatterns #HandmadeGiftIdeas #KnitGifts #CrochetGifts #MakeForChristmas #HandmadeChristmas #CraftEvangelist

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!

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.
