Pattern: Tapestry Crochet Whale Pillow

I’ve been really into tapestry and fair isle crochet lately. So when Evie asked for a pillow with a whale on it, I happily agreed. You can make so many different designs and pictures using these crochet techniques. Check out my Mistletoe Kisses Beanie pattern HERE and my Festive winter pillow pattern HERE!

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram if you make the whale pillow! I love to see your finished work! 🙂

Don’t forget to Pin the pattern for easy access as well!

Materials:

  • Worsted Weight Yarn in at least 2 different colors. Less than 1 skein each. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice.
  • 5.00mm Crochet Hook
  • Fabric for back of pillow OR more yarn to crochet a back panel
  • Yarn Needle
  • Rotary Cutter (optional)

Pattern: Crochet Fringe Crop Top

I was recently requested to write up a pattern for a kids fringe crop top! Even though it’s only 50 degrees out today it’s hot in other parts of the world right?! 🙂 So the fringe crop top was born! I think it’s definitely a crochet pattern staple to have when you have little ones running around. It’s super cute for photo shoots or to just wear outside during the hot summer days. I included 3 different sizes but it is VERY easy to adjust even further if you need to. To make it wider, add more chains to the starting chain. To make it longer or shorter, add or take away rows.

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram (@evelynandpeter) with all your fringe crop top makes!

Materials:

  • Worsted (4) weight cotton yarn. 50-80 yards depending on size made. I used Paintbox cotton yarn.
  • 4.00mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle

Pattern: Men’s Team Colors Beanie

Every fall my husband asks for a new beanie to wear. This year he requested one with his football teams colors! This pattern is perfect for customizing to your favorite football team colors! Sean likes his beanies slouchy and stretchy. This one is really fast to make, it’s worked in rows to form a rectangle and then sewn together at the end. You can make it as slouchy or as fitted as you want by making your starting Ch longer or shorter. It’s also really easy to customize the colors you want and add as many colors as you would like!

Materials Needed: 

  • Worsted Weight yarn in 3 or 4 colors.
  • 6.00mm crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle

Notes:

This hat is worked in rows and then sewn at the end to form the hat. 

Pattern: Bobbles And Rows Pillow

If you haven’t tried Bernat mix home yarn yet, you need to! I picked up a couple of skeins on one of my many shopping trips to Michael’s. I can’t resist when I see a new yarn! I made my pillow case big enough to fit an old 18×18 pillow. However, if you want it bigger or smaller, it’s really easy to customize by shortening or lengthening the starting chain.

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram with your Bobbles and Rows pillows so i can see!

Materials Needed: 

  • 2 Skeins of Bernat Mix Home Yarn. Click the link for a 40% off coupon at Michael’s! Coupon Code 
  • 8.00mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Pillow insert or Poly-Fil stuffing

Pattern: Spring Beanie and Headband

I made Evie a new headband the other night using Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton Yarn! It is SO soft and one of my favorite yarns to work with. I had plenty of yarn leftover so I decided to make Penelope a matching beanie to go with it! The color I chose is very springy and the light-weight cotton is perfect for the current weather! My favorite part is that I was able to make both the headband and beanie for less than one skein of yarn. Both patterns are very simple and beginner friendly.

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram so I can see your work!

Materials:

  • Worsted weight cotton yarn. I used One skein of Hobby Lobbys I love This Cotton! in Pastel.
  • 4.00mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn needle

Pattern: Sun Bum Tote

Yay! Finally a new pattern to post! I never realized before I started designing my own crochet how much work goes into pattern writing! First there is the idea stage, then the yarn buying stage (my favorite), then the making and frogging and re-doing stage, all while scribbling notes down so I don’t forget what I did. When you finally have the finished product.. Bam!! Now you have to type up the pattern, find testers, send to testers, wait for your testers to give you feedback. Edit the pattern, take pretty pictures, post on Instagram AND still have to make a listing on Etsy. PHEW! I’m so amazed at all the support I get for my patterns and I love to be able to give back. I hope you like my newest pattern The Sun Bum Tote!

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram if you make the Sun Bum Tote! I love seeing your finished work! You are always welcome to sell your finished work with ANY of my patterns, but please link back to my shop/blog for credit! 🙂

Materials: 

  • Worsted Weight Yarn, approximately 270 Yards. I used less than 2 skeins of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in Ivory. You will also need a small amount of colored yarn for the trim and handles.
  • 3.00mm crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle

Pattern: Fuzzy Bunny Ears Headband

I’ve had this fur yarn in my stash for a while now and could never decide what to do with it. My 3 year old recently asked for a pair of bunny ears to wear after seeing all the Easter stuff in stores and it clicked! I whipped these Fuzzy Bunny Ears up during my youngest daughters afternoon nap, they are that quick! The fur is so soft and fluffy and the flowers just scream spring to me. I hope you guys enjoy this pattern!

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram so I can see all your fuzzy bunny ear creations! I love seeing your work! 🙂

Materials:

  • Redheart Boutique Fur Yarn from JoAnn Fabrics. Less than one skein.
  • Small amount of bulky (5) white yarn. I used Buttercream Angel hair from JoAnn.
  • Colorful scrap yarn for the flowers. I used I Love This Cotton! From Hobby Lobby.
  • A headband
  • Yarn needle
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • N/9.00mm Crochet hook

Pattern: Sarah Crop Top

My sister recently asked for a ribbed crop top and this is what I came up with! Now this is more of a guide/how to instead of a specific stitch count pattern. You can basically use this as a guideline to make your own top! It’s really easy and as long as you continue to try it on as you go and check your size it should come out great! I used the new Sugarspun yarn by Loops & Threads. I know this yarn isn’t available everywhere yet but you can use any light weight yarn. Im sure worsted weight would work just as well! I plan on making another one using a soft cotton yarn for a more summertime feel! 🙂 Remember you can always leave a comment or send me a DM on Instagram if you need any help or have questions!

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram so I can see your Sarah Crop tops!

Materials:

  • 3.00mm crochet hook
  • 4.00mm crochet hook
  • Light (3) Weight yarn in 2 colors. (less than one skein each.) I used Loops & Threads Sugarspun Yarn.
  • Yarn needle

Pattern: Chubby Bunny Amigurumi

Easter is just around the corner, so I decided to make a quick bunny! He ended up being a chubby little guy hence the name, Chubby Bunny 🙂 I LOVE the Angel Hair yarn used to make this bunny. It’s the same yarn I use to make this adorable lamb hat.  Super soft and fluffy, if you haven’t tried it, you need to!

Pattern: Cozy Slipper Socks

I love slippers and always seem to be buying cute pairs when I make target runs, ordering them from amazon and I always seem to be browsing for the latest MukLuks. My 2 year old pup recently stole one of my favorite pairs and proceeded to destroy them in the backyard. Sigh… he’s lucky he’s cute. Which leads me to making and writing up this pattern for Cozy Slipper Socks to add to my collection. 🙂

This pattern will fit and average sized adult female foot. I am a size 8 and made it to fit me perfectly. If you want a smaller or bigger pair just add more rows where indicated. Don’t be afraid to play around with the sizing!
