Pattern: Slouchy puff stitch beanie

So I’ve been obsessed with the puff stitch lately. It really is an easy stitch and once you get it down you can crank out a hat in no time. I’ve been making a bunch of these puff stitch beanies for my upcoming craft fair in October. This pattern is super versatile and is easy to work up in different sizes. I like to use worsted weight or bulky yarn to make them.

Materials: 

5mm crochet hook

One skein worsted weight yarn. The Mustard hat pictured is
Urban Yarn by Loops & Threads
 and I LOVE it!

Yarn needle

PomPom (optional)

Pattern: popcorn crochet cowl

Fall is upon us so naturally I’ve been working on a bunch of scarves and cowls! I wanted to make something with a lot of texture and different stitches. I found this Pattern and just made a few changes.

I used a 5mm hook and one skein chunky yarn. I used Yarn Bee Aspyn in wildbrush from Hobby Lobby!

I did NOT make the button holes. Just continued along with the pattern. Instead of adding buttons I just slip stitched the beginning row and ending row together! I used exactly one skein of yarn, following the basic pattern until I ran out.

 

Love the popcorn stitch in this pattern, gives it really nice texture.

Send me your pictures or tag me on Instagram if you make the cowl! I love to see everyones results!

Pattern:Chunky round crochet pillow

I recently made this super cute crochet pillow for my couch! It works up really fast and was a quick, fun project. I found the pattern from Jo-Anns!

I used two strands of Bernat Blanket Yarn in Vintage White.

 

See how soft and squishy…img_0181

Love the vintage white color against the grey couch.

They also have two more pillow patterns to go along with this one! Im thinking I’ll have to make them both for a matching set.

I ordered this pillow insert in size 18″ round and it fit perfectly.

If you decide to make one of the pillows be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see!

Pattern: Crochet Doll and Puppy Hat

Ok you guys. I can’t even handle the cuteness of this doll. I saw it on Pinterest and immediately decided to make it and you should too.

Here is the Pattern!  Make sure you click the download link and the english version of the pattern is on page 5.

I used the puppy hat pattern from Repeat Crafter Me.

I made a few changes to the hat. I followed the size for 0-3 months. In round 4 I increased and then sc 4 instead of increasing every two single crochets. I also stopped after the 7th round.

Collar Pattern: 

Ch 18, Sl St back down. Leave ends long enough to tie.

Heart Pattern

Tie the heart to the collar and tie the collar around the dolls neck!

I plan on making a few of these for my upcoming craft fair! Im thinking maybe an elephant next and probably a princess for my 3 year old! What will you all make? Send me pictures or tag me in them on Instagram! @evelynandpeter

Pattern: Mandala Coasters

So I’ve been obsessed with mandalas lately and had a bunch of cotton yarn I wanted to use so I made some cute mandala coasters! These are really fun and easy to make. I used a free pattern from Ravelry. Instead of making the entire mandala I stopped after round 4 and they are the perfect coaster size. I used Lily Sugar’n Cream Cotton yarn and just mixed the colors with each coaster.

Materials: 

Lily Sugar’n cream cotton- 4 colors

Crochet hook size 2.5mm

yarn needle

Pattern: Newborn Beanie

I spent a lot of time crocheting newborn hats when I was pregnant with my second daughter. I wanted to share the super easy pattern! All 5 of these hats are the same pattern with different things added to them. You can see in the picture that the hat with the bear ears is a bit bigger because the yarn I used is a bit chunkier. I used bulky 6 for it and bulky 5 for the other four hats. So, I recommend using a 5 if your making for a newborn and 6 if its for an older baby.

Boho Crochet Wall Hanging

Im finally back! I’ve been super busy the past few months taking care of my toddler and newborn baby girl who was born in May! My new blog kind of took the backseat for a little while. I have been crocheting as much as I can though and have a bunch of free patterns to post soon! Here’s something I recently finished and will be for sale at my upcoming craft fair next month.

I bought Molla Mills new book, Crochetterie: Cool contemporary crochet for the creatively-minded and love it! There is a bunch of fun patterns in this book and if you like tapestry crochet I definitely recommend it. I used one of her rug patterns, tweaked it a little bit and instead made it into a boho wall hanging. Then, I attached it to a piece of driftwood and added some little tassels to the bottom.

I have another wall hanging and a bunch of other things that I recently made and will be posting the patterns for them soon so check back and subscribe!

Pattern: Outdoor crochet rope rug

I wanted a nice, durable outdoor rug to help catch some of the dirt and grass by the doggy door from my crazy pups who are constantly in and out of the house. I found some Jute rope at Michaels that worked perfectly. This pattern is really simple and versatile. The rows repeat themselves so feel free to stop when you want or add more rows if you want a longer rug! It works up really quick and was fun to make!

Materials:

Jute rope- I used just under 3 rolls of 4ply jute by bead landing.

Size Q crochet hook

Scrap fabric or cotton yarn (optional)

Chain 21

Row 1: Sc back down the chain

Row 2: Ch 2 and turn, dc across

IMG_0079

Row 3: Ch 1 and turn, Sc across

Rows 4-21: Repeat rows 2 and 3

turn, slip stitch across. Tie off and weave in ends.

You can continue on by repeating the rows of sc and dc if you want your rug longer, or do less for a shorter rug. I wanted a little bit of color in mine so I decided to weave some scrap cotton yarn through the rows of dc. I used 3 strands of yarn by braiding them together before weaving through the rows. Scrap fabric torn into strips or colored rope would work for this as well.

Pattern: Donkey Amigurumi

Occasionally I like to crochet amigurumi for something different! My fave is when they are soft and jumbo sized! I used a bulky yarn to make this donkey so he would be extra cuddly. Feel free to use a smaller yarn but be sure to change your hook size accordingly. The blanket and sombrero I made to go with him are really easy to do and you will just need some scrap yarn. Let me know what you think!

 

Materials Needed:

  • Bulky yarn in grey and brown, I used Loops and Threads Charisma brand in charcoal and espresso.
  • Worsted weight yarn in black for hair and tan for sombrero, and a variety (your choice) of colors (can use scrap yarn) for blanket.
  • Hook sizes: 4.50mm (for donkey) and 3.00mm (for sombrero and blanket)

Stitches: Magic loop, Single Crochet (sc), Half Double Crochet (hdc), Increase (Inc), Decrease (dec) You should also be familiar with switching colors.

 

Legs (make 4):

Starting with brown yarn and 4.50mm hook

Round 1: Magic Loop, sc 6 times into loop

Round 2: Increase in each stitch around

Pattern: Flower Vase

I decided to make a vase for some of my decorative flowers instead of buying one.  I chose to crochet with 2 strands of yarn together to give it a bit more stiffness and be able to stand up better. I thought it turned out really cute using two different colors at the same time. I chose a blue and cream color to go with my other decor. This is a really simple pattern, I recommend using a cotton yarn so the final product will be firm.
