    In celebration of Best Friends Day tomorrow, I’ve teamed up with Osage County Crochet to bring you two free crochet patterns this week! While we were brainstorming ideas, we found out that tomorrow is Best Friends Day and wanted to do a best friends theme. After some deliberation, we wanted to make some amigurumi peas and carrots who were best friends. My contribution to this collaboration is Carter the Carrot.

    I have to confess something. As soon as we started talking about our peas and carrots idea, I knew I was going to be putting a moustache on Carter the Carrot. I will put a moustache on ANYTHING. My very first crochet design was a cactus with a moustache on it. I don’t know why, but I think moustaches are hilarious and awesome so I love to put them on stuff.

    Carter is a realitively quick and easy project that even beginners can do. You will need to know how to make a magic circle, single crochet, single crochet increase and decrease as well as how to single crochet in the back bump of your chain. (Need to learn how to crochet in the back bump of your chain? Check out this quick tutorial HERE.)

    When you’re done here, head on over to Osage County Crochet to check out her part of our collaboration: Beary the Pea.

    Glasses

    carter the carrot and tools for making glasses

    Using silver craft/jewelry wire, bend the wire at a 90 degree angle approximately an inch from the end of the wire.  Next to the bend, create a circle by wrapping the wire around a large pen/marker once – this creates the first “lens”.  Leave some wire straight to act as the bridge of the glasses.  Make sure that the bridge is long enough so that when you create the second lens, the eyes should be centered in each “lens”. (I find it’s helpful to measure the space between the two eyes to help me gauge how long the bridge should be.)  Wrap the wire around the marker again to create the second “lens”.  Create a 90 degree bend in the wire to create the second “arm” and cut off at an inch and a half.  Put them on the carrot, inserting the arms into the carrot, through the spaces between the stiches on the outside of the each eye.  (Need more help? A step-by-step photo tutorial for making the glasses is available on the ad-free PDF available HERE via Etsy or HERE via Ravelry.)

    Moustache

    Cut a moustache out of black felt. Mine is approximately 1 3/8” long. The template that I used for my moustache is available in the PDF of the pattern which is available HERE via Etsy or HERE via Ravelry. Apply some of the fabric glue to one side of the moustache and glue it to the carrot just below the bottom of the glasses.

    Colour Block Make Up Bag Crochet Pattern

    close up image of a small white and blue crochet make up bag with a small metal tag on the front.

    The colour block make up bag is a super easy, beginner-friendly crochet pattern that can be made in a few hours. Because who doesn’t love a quick, easy crochet pattern?

    Don’t lose it. Add it to your Ravelry Queue HERE.

    One of my favourite features of this bag is the suede tassel. I hunted high and low to find the perfect tassel for this project. After going to a few shops locally and searching online, I found this beauty on Etsy at Moxie’s Leather. Their tassels were gorgeous and I was so excited to support another Canadian maker that I couldn’t wait for it to get here. I think it was the perfect finishing touch to this bag.

    I also added another one of the Tim Holtz Word Bands to this bag. I have used them on the last two bags I’ve designed (The Rainbow Saver Tote Bag and the Shoreline Seeker Tote) and I really enjoyed the look they give to the bags. The one I used on this bag says “Encourage your hope, not your fears”.

#crochet #crochetpattern #freepattern #freecrochetpattern #beginnercrochetpattern #diy #makeityourself #crochetproject #fastcrochetproject #quickcrochetpattern #easycrochetpattern #crochetbag #makeupbag #bag #crochetclutch

    To make the square bottom:  Keeping the bag inside out, turn it upside down.  Lay the bag so that the bottom faces up and one of the corners lays out in a triangular shape, with the seam centered. Use a ruler and measure 1 1/8” from the tip of the cover and mark a line across the corner at that point.  Using Classic Navy, sew through both layers across that line.  Repeat on the other corner. Fold the corners towards the center of the inside of the bag and using a length of classic navy secure the corners down to the bottom of the bag.

    Finishing Touches: If using the word band, sew it to the front of the bag in the center, just below the opening.

    If using the tassel, attach it to the jump ring and attach the jump ring to the zipper to act as a zipper pull.

    Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern

    Mommy's Go-To Fingerless Gloves - Free Crochet Pattern by The Loopy Lamb #Fingerlessgloves #CrochetPattern #Freecrochetpattern #Quickcrochet #Stripedgloves #gloves #Mittens

    This is an unsponsored post and the thoughts/opinions are all my own.

     

    It has been a crazy couple of weeks!  It’s been so busy with the 30 Days of Cozy promotion going on and right in the middle of the promotion, my husband had a business trip to Halifax and I’ve been alone with both kids.   I’ve also been working away on a few new patterns for you as well so stay tuned!  This week’s free crochet pattern is Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves.

    My awesome husband brought me back this beautiful yarn from his trip.  It’s made by the Mineville Wool Project which is a local Halifax yarn dyer.  I’m so lucky that he supports my crazy yarn addiction.  I can’t wait to get my hooks into these babies.  If you have any suggestions on what I should make with this yarn, leave me a comment below.  I’m having a hard time deciding!

    Mommy's Go-To Fingerless Gloves Free Crochet Pattern by The Loopy Lamb

     

    I must confess: I lose A LOT of gloves.  I’m almost on par with my little one who loses mittens almost as fast as I can make and buy them.  I must also confess that I am a little particular when it comes to my gloves.  I don’t like the tops of the gloves to be too long because they can sometimes stretch out and look sloppy.  My preference is fingerless gloves so I can zip up zippers, tie up shoes and text with ease.

     

    Mommy's Go-To Fingerless Gloves - Free Crochet Pattern by The Loopy Lamb #Fingerlessgloves #CrochetPattern #Freecrochetpattern #Quickcrochet #Stripedgloves #gloves #Mittens

    So Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves were born out of my need for a cute and quick pair of fingerless gloves.  They are super quick to make so you can replace those lost gloves in a flash but you don’t have to substitute your cuteness factor.  This is also a beginner friendly pattern.  If you sell your crochet, these are great since you can make a pair in well under an hour.  The pattern is easily adaptable so if you need/want the tops or bottoms to be a bit longer, just add a few rows.  So without further ado, let’s get to that pattern!

    I sometimes struggle trying to come up with a name for my patterns so I enlisted the help of my family to come up with something for this guy.  We had a lot of fun trying to come up with something fun and punny.  Since Saint Prickolaus wears a Santa hat and Saint Nickolaus is another name for Santa, we decided to go with Saint Prickolaus!

I am always looking to try to apply new and different textures to projects to see what I come up with. This week’s free crochet pattern is no exception. My Tiny Pebbles ear warmer pattern is beginner-friendly and works up in a flash.

    If you can do single crochet and a triple/treble crochet, you can make this ear warmer. Alternating the single and triple/treble crochets, it creates this lovely little pebbly-looking texture. To finish the ear warmer off, I use a length of yarn to wrap around the seam which hides it and gives the ear warmer a seamless look.

    Crochet ear warmers make a great stocking stuffer or gift. Because it works up quickly, you can whip up a bunch fast if you’re inclined to sell your finished items at craft sales. I personally love them for being able to stuff them in my pocket or purse so I can keep my ears warm when it’s windy or cool but I’m not feeling like rocking a hat. My Tiny Pebbles ear warmer satisfies my love of texture and my need for something cute that can be stuffed in my pocket when I’m done with it. That’s a win in my books.

    Finishing the Ear Warmer
    Slip stitch or sew the two sides together to form a band and leave a long tail of yarn approximately 12 to 14” long. Squeeze the top and bottom of the ear warmer together and wrap the long tail of yarn around the seam approximately 6 to 8 times or until you get the look you want. Secure the yarn and weave in your ends.

    Want to adjust the size? Chain an even number of stitches to your desired length. That’s it! Super easy, right?
