Super-Long Little Trees Scarf

I love super- long scarves, I cannot lie But the patience it needs to make one Is wayyyy too high!   If you’ve not been put off by my feeble attempt to poetry, please read on. No more poetic attempts, I promise! Okay, so I love, love, love super-long scarves because they can be worn…

Comforting Hug Prayer Shawl: Free Pattern Link

All Free Crochet’s Comforting Hug Prayer Shawl is less of a shawl and more of a scarf imho but quite simple to crochet up. I chose it since I really liked the shell design which reminded me of the Arabian Jasmine, my favorite summer flower. MATERIALS (recommended) Crochet Hook: J/10 or 6 mm hook Yarn Weight: (4)…

5 Free Patterns: Asymmetrical Shawls

Love, love, love asymmetrical shawls. They are pretty modern and do not have the quintessential ‘granny’ look that’s associated with shawls. I love to wear em with and with skinny jeans and boots. Here are some exquisite and FREE (yeah!!!!) patterns to try out. I am still deliberating as to which shawl I’m gonna make first…

Crochet Shawlette/Scarf (Free Pattern)

This beautiful crochet scarf/shawl/ shawlette is incredibly easy to make and the results are gorgeous. It is based on crunch stitch, that is alternating sc & dc stitches which gives it that textured/weaved look. I did make some cosmetic changes to the pattern.  I folded one end of the shawl into a loop, added a button…

Charcoal Drape Shawl (Free Pattern)

  Hubby got this lovely chunky gray tweedish kinda wool during one of his trips to Turkey, so I made a throw for him.   I used 10 balls of chunky wool (50 gm balls) and a 6 mm crochet hook to make this 30 inch wide and 80 inch long shawl. Its an easy peasy pattern, actually, there…

Beaded Tablecloth (?) Wrap

  Probably one of the most time-consuming and useless pieces of crochet projects I’ve ever done. Enthused by the multitude of circular wraps that flooded the net last year (or perhaps the year before) I laboriously made one, complete with pearl glass beads an’ all. The result? An utterly unwearable tablecloth that can’t be used…

Chevron Shawl

These gray and yellow glittery acrylic yarns are from the time I went utterly NUTS and bought a car back-seat full of ’em, only to realize they were too tacky to use as anything respectably wearable! More about that here. Anyhoo, used the gray & the yellow for this afghan/shawl and it turned out pretty…

Sidewalk Shawl Pattern (Red Heart Free Pattern)

No matter if you are a noob or an experienced crocheter, if you have been trying to crochet a shawl, and looking for a free pattern, you have most definitely come across this gorgeous pineapple crochet shawl from Red Heart yarns. http://www.redheart.co.uk/node/10991 I made one like it and though it was a bit tricky to follow the…

Crochet Sleeveless Jacket

My first sleeveless jacket project, made with acrylic yarn. Its an awfully simple project. Takes less time than say a shawl or an afghan and the results are pretty amazing. There are hundreds, if not thousands of free patterns for jackets like this.   Hip-length. Looks perfect over a short skirt.      

Crochet Table Runner (Free Pattern)

I had some seriously glittery acrylic yarn that I’d bought on a whim and later realized was too tacky to be used for anything wearable. Hence, this table runner. I found the free pattern on Ravelry, added a picot edging, and there it was sitting pretty on hubby’s bureau! You can find the free pattern here.

Crochet Containers

Since, simply crocheting cute food items without any utility (my kids are too old to play with ’em), is not my thing, I decided to container them. Hence, the Kiwi Crochet Cake became a button & ribbon container, the CupCake became a loose change container and the Crochet Cuppa Joe stored other odds & ends….
