Big Hat -free crochet pattern-

This is a very simple pattern!  And a quick one at that.  We're going to see a sensational chunky yarn trend this fall/winter, and although this pattern is older, this is just the beginning of chunky style!  The yarn and hook size is going to be getting larger and larger!  I quite like this hat, it has an elegant kind of vintage look to it.

Sunflower Mobile Pouch -free crochet pattern-

The sunflower is my favorite flower, so this cute mobile phone pouch caught my attention right away!  This is such a simple design, but looks amazing.  When you follow the link to this pattern, scroll down the page a bit, and you will find it. 

Designed By:  Lakshmi Nair

Skill Level:  Intermediate (joining motif skills/setting gauge)

Materials:  The designer does not list which yarn or hook was used, so you may have to play around with gauge to make it fit your own phone.  Measure the length of your phone, divide by 2.  Try to make one square motif the same length (and width obviously).  Make 3 more squares the same.  This should fit your phone!  She used yarns in colors orange, yellow, and black.

Sunday Brunch Ladies Slippers -free crochet pattern-

Sunday Brunch Ladies Slippers Pattern

Here's a blast from the past today, to be specific, 1953!  These beauties caught me eye right away, they are elegant and simple, well the crochet part anyway... this pattern calls for the use of a sole.  I think if I make this, I might try the sole from some cheap flip flops or an insole.  But the design for these are pretty, and the materials needed are sitting in my yarn bag:)
