The Dwell Sweater -free crochet pattern-

Creatively constructed from a simple rectangle, this flattering chunky crochet sweater comes together easily with zero shaping, increasing or decreasing. Free pattern from Make & Do Crew featuring Lion Brand Wool-Ease Tonal yarn.

Doesn't this sweater look nice and cozy?!  Cocoon sweaters are all the rage this season, and this crochet beauty wraps the design up nicely. I love the fact that the designer has included cuffs for the arms and I absolutely love the pockets! The pattern uses easy post stitches and chunky yarn so this sweater works up fairly quickly. The design also includes a fantastic description and instructions on making your very own!

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.

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!
