Vibrant Bohemian Necklace -free crochet pattern-

2016-06-01 14.11.17

Baby it's cold outside this morning in this rural little community of New Brunswick, Canada!  While I've been obviously working away at winter apparel, the back of mind is yearning for spring. I know that it's probably not the best time to start talking about spring crochet, I just needed to find something different today, and alas; I found this wonderful bohemian necklace pattern!  Something about this caught my eye and made me fall in love with it right away. Maybe the colors, the style, the absolute simplicity, or maybe all of those!

All Wrapped Up Infinity Scarf -free crochet pattern-

Now here's a clever idea!  Use two colors of yarn and knot them to create a beautiful infinity scarf. The scarf itself is a fairly easy pattern, and the designer includes a video tutorial on how to knot the scarf. Chunky yarn is used for this design, but it would be very easy to change it up with a different yarn weight as well. And the color... I have to mention the colors, I love these colors!  Mixing a bright with a dark really shows off the knot.

Inner Beast -free crochet pattern-

Well, this is a strange looking pattern... and you know?  I love strange things!  This odd looking creature caught my eye right away, As I was scrolling through patterns, I briefly passed this one, and I'm pretty sure my exact words were, "Wait, wait, wait, ... what was that!?"  So I scrolled back and started giggling. I mean, this thing is adorable!  As I started reading the pattern details, it got even better, because this creature is a total stash buster!  What a great way to start a new year, by ridding yourself of bits of yarn from the past.  I seriously can't wait to try this one!  This is a Ravelry download.
