    The Pinch Me Crochet Lobster Hat Pattern is my latest free crochet pattern that I designed as part of the 2020 Holiday Stashdown CAL! This hat is a crochet ear flap hat that’s accessible for beginners and all the sizes use less than a 100g ball of Lion Brand Basic Stitch Premium. If you don’t have the recommended yarn don’t worry, you can use any worsted weight yarn from your stash that you’re able to match the patten gauge with.

    For more information about the Holiday Stashdown CAL please visit Marie’s post here: 2020 Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along.

    The Pinch Me Crochet Lobster Hat Pattern was created when a family friend found out that her daughter was pregnant. She asked me if I could create a fun and goofy crochet lobster hat for her grandson to gift to him when he was born. I created the hat and subsequently a set of lobster mittens and a lobster tail bunting bag. The friend and her daughter both really enjoyed the set I made and I decided that I would grade the hat in all sizes to share it with you all.

    This hat is perfect for gifting and is easy to customize. My son asked me for an alien hat so I used this exact pattern but used green yarn instead of red and it made the perfect alien. The crochet lobster hat is also a bit of an inside joke for my family because my husband has wanted a lobster tree topper forever. He always jokes that lobsters are a Christmas animal. So for us, it was kind of fitting to release the crochet lobster hat pattern going into the holiday season.

    Thanks to my wonderful testers that checked the sizes of these hat for me to make sure they would fit. I really appreciate all their hard work and help!

    Sizes Available:

    • 0 – 3 months, 3 – 6 months. 6 – 12 months, 1 – 3 years, 3 – 5 years, 6 – 10 years, Teen/Adult Small and Adult Large

    Gauge:

    • 14 sts x 10 rounds in HDC = 4 inches


    Notes:

    • This pattern is worked in joined rounds from the top down.  The hat, earflaps and ties are all crocheted on to eliminate sewing.  Then the antennae and eyes are crocheted separately and sewn on. 
    • Gauge is vital to ensuring that your hat will fit as expected.  Do a gauge swatch of HDC stitches done in the round to check your gauge.  Use whatever hook size allows you to match gauge.
    • Always join your rounds in the top of the first HDC of the round, not the CH.
    • The CH 1 at the start of every round does not count as a stitch
    • Always start your rounds in the first stitch of the last round.

    Crochet Wreath Pattern: Country Winter Wreath

    Crochet wreath with lights hanging on a fireplace mantel.
    This post may contain affilliate links. All opinions are my own.

    It’s almost that time of year and while we may be celebrating a bit differently this year, I can still decorate for the season. When I set out to design my Country Winter Wreath crochet pattern, I wanted to create something that was timeless and classic, accessible for beginners, yet easy to customize. Seems like a tall order but I feel like I was able to hit all my goals with this pattern.

    Pin this Free Crochet Wreath Pattern for later SAVE

    I really like the minimalist look for wreaths and Christmas decor in general but I wasn’t satified with just a beautifully, classic crochet wreath. I wanted to kick it up a notch and make it extra festive. Because, let’s be honest, this feels like a year where we’ll need all the extra festiveness we can get

    I used Whims Merino DK yarn in this design which is a Z-twist yarn. This z-twist really gives crochet stitches a boost in stitch texture. I wanted to choose a basic stitch that would really pop because of that z-twist. I used one of my favourite stitches: The Thicket Stitch. (You can find a stitch tutorial for how to crochet the Thicket Stitch HERE). The result is an absolutely gorgeous stitch texture with no extra effort or difficult stitching required.

    My Country Winter Wreath Crochet Pattern was designed to be easy to customize as well. Don’t like the minimalist look like I went with? Try adding some christmas baubles, extra lights, some greenery, small amigurumis or figurines. The only limit is your imagination my friends.

    • Wreath Body: 6” wide x 44.5” long laid flat

    NOTES:

    • Gauge is not vital to the project although it will affect the amount of yarn needed.
    • This pattern is easily adjustable to be used with other sizes of wreath forms.  Chain an even number of stitches that fit snuggly around the wreath form you have and follow the pattern instructions until your piece is long enough to fit your wreath form.

    Adding the Lights (Optional)

    If adding lights to your wreath, hold one end of the lights with one hand to hold it in place and use the other hand to wrap the lights around the wreath form until you are back to where you started.  Use a piece of tape or some pins to hold each end of the lights in place temporarily while you cover the wreath with your fabric.

    Watch How I Wrap My Wreath with Lights Here:

    Covering the Wreath

    With the right side of your wreath body piece you created facing you, wrap the wreath body piece around the wreath form so the long ends touch and the stitches line up.  Using a long length of yarn threaded onto a tapestry needle, mattress stitch the long ends together, working through the ends of the rows.  If you’re using the lights, make sure that the short ends of your wreath body start and end where your lights start and end so that you can make sure the battery pack can be left on the outside of the wreath.  When you reach the end, sew the two ends together and leave a small space for the cord for the battery pack.  FO and weave in ends.

    Here’s a quick video showing me wrap my wreath with crochet and assembling the bow:

    Assembling and Adding the Bow

    Step 1: Lay the bow piece horizontally on a flat surface in front of you.  Take the short ends and cross them over each other to create an x-shape like in the image here.  Pinch the center of the bow together and using a tapestry needle threaded with red yarn, sew a running stitch through all layers of the center of the bow, leaving a tail of a few inches remaining at the end.

    Step 2: When you’re finished your running stitch, grab both ends of the yarn and cinch the middle together and tie a knot in the yarn, on the back of the bow.  Leave the tails to secure the bow to the wreath later.

    Step 3: Wrap the center piece for your bow around the center of the bow and match the short ends up on the back of the bow. Use your tail to seam the short ends together and secure it to the bow.

    crochet bow tutorial image 3

    Step 4: Using your remaining tails, sew the bow onto the center, bottom point of your wreath.  To help keep your bow from slipping/sagging, when you’re finishing sewing the bow onto the wreath, run your tails under the fabric, in opposite directions and out towards the back of your wreath.  Secure with a knot on the back of the wreath, making sure to poke the knot back inside the fabric.  Now do this process again back towards the front of the wreath, making sure to hide the knot behind your bow.  FO and weave in your ends.

    Adding the Battery Pack Pocket to your Crochet Wreath (Optional)

    Place the pocket piece on the wreath, opposite to the bow. Using your tail, threaded on a tapestry needle, sew around the outside of the battery pack pocket, attaching it to the back of the wreath, leaving one of the short sides of the pocket piece open.  Weave in your ends and place battery pack inside the pocket.

    Crochet Tarantula Free Pattern – Taran Tarantula

    Hand holding a black and brown crochet tarantula made with this free crochet pattern
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    The other evening I was struck by inspiration seeing two skeins of We Crochet’s Fable Fur sitting on my shelf. I rushed to get to working on my idea so I could share this crochet tarantula free pattern with you quickly. My kids have been watching a ton of wildlife videos and shows lately and that day, they had been watching a video about tarantulas. When I saw the Falke and Corvo yarns sitting next to eachother, it reminded me of a tarantula I saw on their video and I knew I was going to create one.

    Pin it for later Save

    Plus, an amigurumi tarantula is perfect for Halloween so inspiration struck at the perfect time! I gathered my tools and started working on my crochet tarantula while my husband watched TV. I worked like a woman posessed. I would not be swayed from creating my little crochet tarantula. A few hours later, and my little Taran the Tarantula was born. I couldn’t wait until the next morning when the kids woke up to see their reaction. It was priceless. They knew it was a crochet tarantula right away and both immediately asked if they could have it. Taran passed the kid-approved test with flying colours! Only downside is that now they both want their own tarantulas lol.

    Tips for Working with Faux Fur Yarn

    If this is your first time working with faux fur yarns or if you’re nervous about doing so, go into this project knowing that it is seriously much easier than it looks. All my faux fur patterns use simple stitches and shaping techniques and although you can’t really see your stitches, the Fable Fur yarn from We Crochet has a thick strap on the yarn that makes it easy to feel. your stitches. Working with faux fur yarns is incredibly forgiving so even if you don’t think your stitch placement is perfect, I bet no one will even notice 😉 I’ve got a video below here with my top tips for working with faux fur yarns so check this out before you get started with this pattern.

    Other Projects Made with Faux Fur Yarn

    NOTES:

    • Gauge is not vital to the project but it may effect the amount of yarn needed for the project. 
    • A 5.5mm crochet hook is recommended for the project but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches, you can adjust your hook until you can more easily feel your stitches to more easily know where to place your stitches.  This may however effect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed. 
    • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
    • All pieces made in the Fable Fur are worked and sewn onto the project with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking side of the fur. 
    • When crocheting the stripes in the legs, carry the unused yarn inside your stitches to be used for the next set of stripes. 
    • Do not stuff the legs of the spider.

    Picot Single Crochet Ear Warmer & Cowl Set

    Smiling woman wearing the Picot Single Crochet Stitch Ear Warmer and Cowl Set
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I’m so excited to share with you my brand new ear warmer and cowl free crochet pattern. This project uses picot single crochet stitch to create tiny little bobbles on the surface of the project that give it a fun texture without the weight of real crochet bobble stitches. They are quick and fun to make and I just love the way that they look.

    This project uses a yarn that is relatively new to me but had me falling head over heels at first stitch: We Crochet Swish Worsted. For this pattern, I used the colouway Wonderland Heather and it is absolutley beautiful. It has the subtlest heathering and it is crazy soft. It is currently available in 33 different colours and I can’t wait to see what colours you all choose to use! Check out my review of this yarn HERE.

    Pin this Free Crochet Ear Warmer and Cowl Set Pattern for later SAVE

    For this project, I use a special crochet picot stitch called the picot single crochet stitch. This stitch modifies the single crochet stitch to add the CH 3 of a picot in the middle of the stitch. After finishing this stitch, a single crochet is placed in the next stitch which helps keep the picot stitch grounded so to speak and the picot stick out from the fabric. I find doing picot stitches like this to be quick and easy.

    Because of the way that this picot stitch used in this project is created, your work will not have straight edges right away. Your work will look like a rectangle that leans to one side. That’s normal and totally fixable. To fix this issue, you just need to block your project. I steam block almost everything so I just place my project on the foam mats and pin the piece so the edges are straight. Then, I steam it and let it dry. Wet blocking would probably be best for this project but, if you’re impatient to wear this, steam blocking will still work too.

    Special Stitches:

    • Picot Single Crochet: Insert hook into indicated stitch, yarn over hook and pull through stitch.  Yarn over and pull through one loop on the hook three times.  Yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook. (Find the tutorial HERE).


    Finished Ear Warmer Size:

    • Adult – 19.5” Long (before seaming) by 4.5” wide

    Finished Cowl Size:

    • 24.75” Long (before seaming) by 8.5” wide

    Gauge:

    • 15 HDC sts x 12 rows of pattern ST = 4 inches

    Notes:

    •  This pattern is worked back and forth in rows in a flat panel and then is seamed together at the short ends. 
    • The completed projects will slant to the right and appear to not have straight edges.  This is caused by the Picot Single Crochets shifting the work to the right.  This project must be blocked in order to straighten the edges to provide a clean, straight seam which also makes seaming the project together easier.
    • Instructions given in ** are to be repeated for the indicated number of repeats or the instructions provided next to the **

    Free Crochet Hair Scarf Pattern

    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I don’t know about you but when the weather is hot, my hair is always up in a bun or ponytail. Who am I kidding? It’s an all-year-round thing for me. But during the summer/fall those little flyaways feel much more noticeable. Maybe it’s because in the winter I’m always wearing a beanie? I don’t know. But the reality is, a little bit of time outside or a car trip with the windows open and what may have started as a good hair day has turned into frizzy bad hair day. My solution: a crochet hair scarf. So I whipped myself up a crochet hair scarf and now I’m here to share with you my Berry Good Hair Day Crochet Hair Scarf Pattern. Now, all days can be a good hair day.

    When I picked the yarn for this project, I wanted it to do two things. One, be something that was light and flexible/drapey AND I wanted it to be a quick project for someone that might not have tried working with fingering weight yarn yet because they thought working with fingering yarn would take forever. I had some beautiful Hawthorne Fingering Handpaint Speckle yarn in Berry Cobbler in my stash and so I decide this yarn would be fantastic. It’s got great stitch definition, great drape, cost effective and you get get two crochet hair scarves from one hank. If you haven’t tried this yarn before, check out my Hawthorne Fingering Hand Paint Speckle Yarn review HERE.

    I hope I didn’t lose you at fingering weight yarn. Because, this realy is a quick project. I’ve included two different sizes – there’s a thin scarf that’s about 2.25″ wide and a wide scarf that’s about 4.25″ wide. I got both of these from a single hank of Hawthorne Fingering Weight yarn and still had some left over. I was able to make the thin scarf in about an hour and a half. And I am SLOOOOOOOOOWW crocheting and have kids interrupting me every two minutes asking if my project is for them or if they can have their 37th snack for the day. So if you’re a beginner or intimidated by working with fingering weight yarn, this is the perfect project for getting your feet wet and giving it a try. I put off working with fingering weight yarn forever thinking it would take me my whole life to make anything and I get bored if a project takes me too long. So I thought it wouldn’t be for me. Once I tried it, I was hooked! I am OB-SESSED now and although, worsted weight will always be my favourite, I’ve definitely been adding more fingering weight yarn to my stash because I just love working with it.

    Ways to Wear your Crochet Hair Scarf

    Crochet Hair scarf tied in a woman's hair

    I have never been the fashionista that can tell you a dozen different ways to tie a scarf and make you look sassy and fiece. No. I’m the girl that looks like she got into a fight with her scarf and lost. So, thanks to creativity and my friend Google, I have a couple of suggestions and some of them aren’t even for your hair. How’s that for versatility? Some ways you can wear/style your Berry Good Hair Day Crochet Hair Scarf:

    • Tie it at the back of your head
    • Tie it around your ponytail/messy bun. This can be done once, letting the tails dangle or wrapped around multiple times.
    • Wrap it around the handle of your purse. It looks fun/stylish and you’ll have it with you in case you need it
    • It can be used as a short scarf and tied around your neck
    • Tied on top of your head in a knot with the ends tucked in

    How will you wear yours? Let me know in the comments below so everyone can share different ways to style their crochet hair scarves.

    Fair Isle Crochet Workshop Review

    Close up image of the front of the book Fair Isle Crochet Workshop
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I was recently given the opportunity to review Fair Isle Crochet Workshop by Natasja Vreeswijk so today I want to share with you my thoughts on this book and give you an idea of what to expect if you’re considering purchasing this book. Thanks to Search Press, they have provided us with a a copy of the book to giveaway to one lucky winner.

    This book was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

    Pin this for Later Save

    Fair Isle Crochet Workshop begins with a brief overview of basic techniques used in the book and walk through of the Fair Isle stitch technique. The technique utilized in this book is very similar to tapestry crochet in that the colour changes are carried inside the stitches and then brought back up when needed. The overview covers the technique, colour changes, crocheting in rounds & rows as well as the author’s tips & tricks for working with this technique. Since the majority of the designs in the book utilize the humble single crochet stitch this section doesn’t take up a lot of space in the book and doesn’t waste time jumping right into getting you started with it’s beautiful patterns.

    Inside cover of the book Fair Isle Crochet Workshop

    Fair Isle Crochet Workshop contains “15 modern projects for the home”, all of which are just beautiful. There is a throw blanket pattern in the book that is an absolute show stopper that I’m confident would garner compliments and inquiries from every visitor to your home.

    The projects in the book include patterns for:

    • Pillows
    • Blankets
    • Nursery Items
    • Plant Holders
    • A Ragdoll
    • A Clutch
    • A Pouffe
    • A Wall Hanging
    • and more!

    The patterns are written in the UK terminology but to be honest, it is used sparingly as most of the patterns reference the charts and aren’t written out row by row. Directions for borders and special considerations are written out in more detail so it is something to keep in mind when reading those sections if you are most used to the US terminology. A UK to US terminology conversion chart is available in the front of the book, but again, since most of the patterns are comprised mostly of single crochet stitches, it isn’t something you’ll likely have to reference often, if at all.

    The charts are typically large enough to see and understand clearly. There were a couple of instances where I found the chart a little small and wish there was a way to enlarge them but, with some patience, I was capable of sorting things out. Grid lines/row & stitch numbers would have been helpful to have but, not a huge deal.

    The pictures of the patterns are clear and beautifully illustrate the projects, making it difficult to determine what project to start first. The projects really wash away any “crochet is for grannies” perception. The styling of the book finds a fun and unique way to mix vintage and modern styling and is a visual pleasure to flip through it’s pages to look at the pictures. I honestly probably flipped through the pictures at least 3 or 4 times before settling down to actually read the content.

    The projects in Fair Isle Crochet Workshop use a variety of yarns in different weights from fingering to aran. The yarns are available to most via the internet or at your local yarn store but could easily be substituted for other yarns you may already have in your stash.

    Overall, this book would be a great addition the crochet library of an intermediate level crocheter that enjoys or wants to work on more colourwork projects. The designs in the book are gorgeous and definitely worth checking out. If you want to purchase a copy of Fair Isle Crochet Workshop, you can check it out HERE.

    Crochet Christmas Gnome Free Pattern

    This post may contain affiliate links.

    When it comes to making crochet Christmas gifts, you’ve got to start early. It requires a lot of planning in order to get everything done in time to get your crochet gifts under the tree. (If you need help planning, check out my Holiday Gift Project Planner article and download the free tracker to get yourself on-track for Christmas gift making). But, if I’m honest, Christmas sneaks up on me EVERY. YEAR. And despite my best intentions, I always end up changing the plan last minute or falling behind. When I designed this crochet christmas gnome free pattern, I kept that in mind. I know I’m not the only one that wants to whip up something fun and unique for Christmas each year but it needs to happen fast. So, Gnorman Gnome was created.

    Pin it for later Save

    Gnorman Gnome’s base is made with faux fur yarn (I used Fable Fur Yarn from Crochet.com HERE) which gives him the furry beard that a gnome needs without brushing out strands of yarn, attaching strands of yarn etc. The Fable Fur yarn is a super bulky weight yarn so the base whips up in a flash. If you haven’t seen my other faux fur yarn crochet patterns that I’ve published so far, check them out here: Kaya the Koala, Crochet Koala Keychain, Seth the Sloth, Salty the Seal, Flikka Flamingo Taran Tarantula and Otis the Owl.

    Adding Pellets to the Base of Your Crochet Gnome

    Polypellets/plastic pellets are added to the base to help keep Gnorman Gnome standing upright and also enables him to be utilized as a door stop.

    To add the pellets to the base, you need to have the pellets contained to prevent them from coming out of your crochet. I used cheep nylon anklets that I got fro the dollar store. It was a package of 2 pairs for $1.25. That gives me enough to do at least 4 different projects that use the plastic pellets for a small price. I fill the nylon I’m using with pellets until I feel satisfied with the weight/amount that fits inside the base and then I tie a knot in the nylon, close to the top of the pellets. Usually I have enough nylon left over to turn the remaining nylon inside-out to pull it over the part containing the pellets to double up the amount of nylon covering the pellets. I knot it again and place it inside my project.

    If you plan to give Gnorman Gnome to a child that may be a bit rough with him, you may want to sew a small pouch for your pellets to go into as a cotton fabric pouch would be more secure that the nylons.

    The hat for this crochet christmas gnome is made using worsted weight yarn and works up quickly. The hat was designed to give it a lumpy/twisted look but still stay upright. The top starts off in a cork-screw type curl and then some lumps and bumps are added as you progress. The hat features only one colour change so it limits the amount of ends you weave in. I’ve also given instructions to limit how noticeable the colour change is. Using the invisible join technique, the colour change is practically… well… invisible!

    Two little feet are created using black worsted weight yarn and they aren’t stuffed so that Gnorman Gnome can stand up on his own. A small nose is created using a cream coloured yarn (or any skin tone you’d prefer) in worsted weight and sewn onto the base. So in total there are 5 quick and easy to make parts that make up this crochet christmas gnome free pattern. It’s a great crochet christmas gift and you can make an army of them in no time. Let’s get started making our crochet christmas gnome Gnorman Gnome.

    Tips & Tricks for Working with Faux Fur Yarn

    How to do the Magic Circle

    How to do the Single Crochet Stitch

    Finished Size: 

    • Approximately 10” tall from bottom of base to tip of hat and approximately 6” wide at the widest point of the base

    Gauge: 

    • Base Gauge: 4 sts x 5 rows = 2”
    • Hat and Feet Gauge: 11 sts x 12 rows = 2”
    • Gauge is not vital to the project as long as tension is maintained throughout the project and there are no holes where stuffing can be seen.  However, please note if you do not match gauge, it will affect the size of your project and therefore, potentially the amount of yarn required.

    Notes:

    • The base of this project is worked with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking side of the fur. 
    • This project is worked in continuous rounds.  Do not join at the end of every row (unless indicated).  Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every round, moving it up at the start of each new round.

    Special Techniques:

    • Invisible Join: FO leaving a tail that is at least 5 – 6 inches in length.  Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Place the tapestry needle through the top of the 2nd ST from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST of the round, under the back loop of the stitch, and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end.

    I’m so excited to share my crochet doll with clothes pattern to make My Dolly Molly with you! This crochet doll with clothes free pattern will be split into 3 separate parts for the My Dolly Molly Crochet Along. This post contains information on how to join the crochet along and Part Three of the pattern. Check back each Friday for the next part of the pattern.

    I hope you will join along with us for the crochet along. If you do, you can join The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community Group on Facebook where we’ll be chatting and sharing our progress.

    The crochet doll with clothes pattern for My Dolly Molly has been split into three parts to make creating her a little more manageable and so you can crochet along with us. Please reference the posts below for each part of the CAL and instructions.

    Before we get more into the pattern, let’s talk about My Dolly Molly. Molly is a crochet doll with clothes that are removeable. For the crochet along, Molly’s dress is made as a separate piece and can be removed and put back on the doll. If you all want to see more outfits and accessories for Molly, let me know and I can try to create some more free doll clothes patterns for her in future posts.

    Molly was designed in a way that minimizes sewing. Molly’s legs, body and head are all crocheted in a single piece. The arm and hair are made separately and sewn on. Her doll dress is crocheted in a separate piece and as mentioned above, is removeable. There is some sewing for the dress in order to fasten the buttons but that was unavoidable in order to make the dress removeable.

    You can purchase an inexpensive ad-free PDF version of this pattern with all three parts together in one convenient file HERE on Ravelry and HERE on Etsy.
