Picking Posies Washcloth-A Free Pattern


I was so happy to be offered a slot in the most recent CAL Central Crochet-Along! Every Monday from June 18th through August 20th, 2018 several designers will share a new pattern for a free washcloth or dishcloth (to me they are the same thing but used in different rooms! hehe) For this CAL Cascade Yarns graciously provided the designers with yarn support, so all of the washcloth patterns are designed using Cascade Ultra Pima or Ultra Pima Paints. This was my first time working with this yarn, and I loved how smooth and soft it was. It worked up so wonderfully! Continue reading Picking Posies Washcloth-A Free Pattern

I am happy to be joining the Crochet Charity Drive hosted by Sonya of Blackstone Designs again. Every season a group of designers get together and design patterns that they post for free on their blogs whether it be a forever free pattern or free for the entire season that that particular charity drive is active. The hopes of having them free is that people will use these patterns and then donate the finished items to a charity of their choosing. The theme this time was “Toys.”  Continue reading Sheep Sensory Ball-A Free Pattern

Santa Giftcard Holder-A Free Patten

I know that when it comes to gifts, some people are just so hard to buy for! Gift cards are definitely the easiest option if you ever get stumped. This Santa Gift Card Holder is a great way to spice up the gift of a gift card (those plain envelopes that they come with aren’t so festive)! They are super quick to work up and do not use a lot of yarn at all, making them perfect for scrap yarn in your stash! Stick with a red for the main color to keep the Santa theme, or switch to a green for an Elf version! There is also an option to make this into an ornament to hang on the tree-great for little notes to Santa from the kids! These also fit $1 scratch offs really well too!!

Crochet Charity Drive-Dancing Aspen Scarf

A few months ago I was approached by Sonya of Blackstone Designs to see if I would be interested in contributing to her Charity Drive. The theme for this one was SCARVES! I will admit that I don’t wear scarves that often, but I do enjoy making them, so I was really excited to be a part of this! The Dancing Aspen Scarf is a super simple scarf made with a few fun stitches that provide solid and lacy sections throughout. The pattern is written in a way that you can stop at whatever length you prefer whether it be shorter to be made into a cowl/infinity or longer to be wrapped! I made mine about 6 feet long!! I hope that you enjoy this scarf and are able to donate it to someone who needs it this winter season ❤
