Good afternoon all you crochet lovers. I hope your Tuesday is going and is a decent one. So today I have a crochet round up for you featuring 17 designs using double crochet. Well, today I am excited to share some beautiful crochet patterns that follow the double crochet in their designs. Again this week, I have some pretty amazing designers.
Hello, Welcome to this series of crochet round ups using stitches. This week I will have the half double crochet stitch focused on. This week I have 19 free crochet patterns that you will enjoy, I am sure.
I have a roundup of things made with single crochet. I thought I would do this single crochet roundup because, there may be crocheters that are only comfortable with the most basic stitch. I have 10 awesome patterns for you from some pretty great designers. If you have never done single crochet graphs, maybe this is a good place to start.
Everly's Summer Romper was made for my granddaughter Everly. I decided to make this into a free crochet pattern so you all can make this for the little girl in your life, Everly's Summer Romper is made for 12-18months. It fits my granddaughter who is 2 years old perfect. She is a peanut and still wears 12 months. So, please enjoy this free crochet pattern and share your work of Everly's Summer Romper with me in my Facebook group here.
So, I was recently given the opportunity to review Kristin Omdahl's new crochet book 52 Crochet Gifts: Quick and Easy Ideas for Every Week of the Year. In this book Kristin brings us some amazing crochet gift ideas that many of you will be able to use to make some pretty nifty gifts. Kristin brings us crochet patterns from market bags to clutches, bracelets to necklaces, scarves to cowls and fingerless gloves to leg warmers, plus so many more. The variety in this book is what I love. There is literally something for everyone!!
All opinions are my own
Keep reading to get a sneak at some of the crochet patterns you can make for gifts, and your chance to win your very own copy of this book that Kristin is so generously giving away to one lucky reader.
Wayward Scarf is a free crochet pattern for you all! The pattern was designed using some beautiful, lacy shells, giving it an open feeling. I used Lion's Brand Mandela yarn and it worked out perfectly. It only uses one skein of Mandela. I really enjoy making scarves and hats. I don't know if it's because they can be lacy or closed in and be beautiful either way. What are your thoughts on scarves? Do you like them open or more of a close stitch feel?
Pop Pop Be Pop Crochet Hat just exudes beautiful colors!! Colors bring joy to my life, as I think they do to all creative beings. I used Bernat Pop yarn for this project because I love the colors and they popped!!!! This is a project that uses just one skein. I know how many of us hate to change yarn sometimes so this would help in that matter. I used the cross stitch that also added some texture to the hat with the ribbed band.
ACWC Crochet Hat is a slightly slouchy hat. This is an addition to the ACWC Infinity Scarf and ACWC Scoodie. I plan to add more to this collection soon. This would also make a great Spring hat using cotton yarn. This hate is rated EASY and great for a beginner that knows the basic stitches of crochet.
ACWC Infinity Scarf is a free crochet pattern in addition to the ACWC Hat & Scoodie. I loved designing this set and it is mirrored as well. I live in Upstate New York and the winter's are so cold that I need to make scarves for myself. This ACWC Infinity Scarf is designed using just basic stitches. The ACWC Infinity Scarf measures 6 inches by 74 inches.
I just love crochet baby dresses. The Azalia Crochet Dress was designed before my grandling was born. They are just something that could be used as an heirloom. I know my daughter has saved some dresses. This was designed using Premeir Cotton Fair Yarn. I love the way this Azalia Crochet Dress wears. I took pictures of this dress at 2 different lengths.
