Unicorn Hat -free crochet pattern-

Image
This pattern seemed appropriate today, as my little one is obsessed with unicorns and has been coloring pictures of them all day, (and driving me a little crazy with constant coloring page printing!) I am going to have to make this hat for her!  The crochet unicorn hat is sized from 0-3 months all of the way up to adult, and written very well.

Bathgate Hat -free crochet pattern-

Image
If you're looking for something fun, colorful, easy, and to wear all year round, try making your own crochet bathgate hat!  This simple hat is worked in the round from top to bottom.  Use the colors shown, or use your own favorite colors, this hat reminds me very much of the hat worn in the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2016 Ready to Wear collection, that I wonder if that's where the inspiration came from.  Either way, it's a quick and fun project for all!This pattern requires a free membership to Lion Brand's patterns.

Tommy "Crochet" Hilfiger -Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear

Image
I've been spending the past few days researching for an upcoming article, and came across the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2016, Ready to Wear fashion runway show.  So.... sidetracked now from my original article, I have to stop and share this show with you!

While I'm not the biggest fan of Tommy Hilfiger's work, this show stopped me dead in my tracks, because I loved it, and of course, you've guessed it: crochet is involved!  And when I say "involved", I mean it takes over a large portion of the show!

The amount of crochet work that went into the pieces shown on the runway is astounding!  I can't help but think, "Who made this?!" and "How long did it take?!"  Maybe I don't want to know the answer.... but the great part is, YOU CAN MAKE THESE YOURSELF, or most of them anyway. I would say if you have a lot of experience and have the concept of making your own patterns, some of these should be no problem to free-style.  (though they may tak…

Lacy Swing Cardigan -free crochet pattern-

Image
I can't wait for summer, and I'm beginning to see pieces of it showing up everywhere which makes me excited! This pattern for a light crochet summer cardigan caught my attention right away.  The lines, the structure, the design, everything! This looks great paired up with a nice summer dress as shown, but it would also look pretty hot with a tank and jeans.

Here's a clever crochet pattern that I can't wait to make!  I have all of the first aid supplies to fill it, which are hanging out in my bathroom cabinet and fall out every time I open the door, so a case to hold them is a must!  This pattern is also available in a knit version.

Granny Shrug -free crochet pattern-

This pretty crochet shrug is extra wonderful because it's easy to make!  If you know how to make a granny square, no problem.  There is no sizing information available, however, I think it would be pretty simple to figure out.

Market Day Bag -free crochet pattern-

Image
Although the colors used in this crochet bag are not quite my style, I really love the design!  I can imagine this bag in neutrals or brown tones to give it a bohemian feel.  This would not be a beginner pattern, and one must have some experience or concept of switching and carrying colors, but the end result is worth it. It's beautiful!

Boho Gypsy Body Chain Necklace -free crochet pattern-

First, I must say the model (designer?) is absolutely gorgeous!  Second, the crochet necklace is pretty stunning as well!  After sitting around all winter, making hats, scarves, and mittens, it's nice to change to something else, and this project makes a nice break.  Working with crochet threads and light weight yarns and beads can be really fun, so why not give this beauty a try?
