Chevron Knit Look Hat -Free Crochet Pattern-


Ah, 'tis the season to start thinking about cooler temperatures!  With a slight chill in the air, comes the wonderful world of crochet hats. This cool hat caught my eye due to it's colors and style. The classic knit work sock colors give this hat a traditional vibe, and the chevron stripe gives this hat a new twist on the accent colored stripe.  And not to forget that this hat looks knitted, but is definitely crochet instead! If you don't know how, or have never heard of the wst (waistcoat) stitch, now is the time to try something new. There are several tutorials out there to show you how, and it's easy! This is a Ravelry download.

Corner 2 Corner Unicorn Pillow - Free Crochet Pattern


Well... this adorable crochet pillow caught my attention right away!  My daughter is obsessed with unicorns and I'm sure that this is something that she will want me to make for her, so I can't show her yet because she will never leave me alone until I make it!  I love how this pattern works from corner to corner and the color changes are easy enough. The hair swirl embellishments make the pillow extra special!

Reversible Feathers - Free Crochet Pattern


How cool is this?!  I know that it's hard to get into crochet during the summer, not just with the idea of making slippers and hats, because there's plenty of cute bag designs, home decor, etc that you could make, but I know for me it's lack of time!  My summers are short here up north so I'm outside most of the summer. But... I did make a dreamcatcher this summer and I wish I had seen this first!  Now I won't go remove all of my real feathers from it, but now I want to make another one because these clever crochet feathers are awesome!  They are also easy to make and the color combinations are endless. Also a wonderful scrap yarn project, you could also use these as embellishments for all sorts of other accessories. The pattern is written out and includes photos, no problem!

Audrey Dress -free crochet pattern-


Oh my!  This is a lovely crochet dress, yet so easy to make- the perfect example of using simplicity to create something beautiful. If you know how to make a granny square, which is easy enough on its own, then you can make this dress!  Basically you make 2 granny squares the same size, join them, and continue on with the length. This dress is super easy to make custom, and could also be a great stash buster! This is a Ravelry download.
