Crochet Cupcake Pattern

crochet food patternWhen I first started crocheting these little cupcakes soon became my favorite projects! They are so fast, very versatile and just make me smile. I worked at a cute coffee shop together with a very talented baker. His cupcake creations inspired me to make these little guys. Use them as toys instead of plastic or add a string to make ornaments. I added a carrot because Easter is coming up – how cute will they look in an Easter basket!? Keep reading for the free crochet cupcake pattern! Continue Reading

My husband is a big romantic and surprised me with a marriage vows renewal at the beach for Valentine’s day. What a wonderful coincidence that I had just fallen head over heels for the mandala yarn cakes and was in the middle of crocheting this Poncho. I quickly finished and got to wear it for my beach re-wedding! This makes me especially happy to share the free pattern here with you. Keep reading for the free crochet yarn cake poncho pattern!

crochet cable hat pattern

crochet cable hat free pattern

As promised, I have written up my favorite cable crochet hat pattern and want to share it with you here.  My little man is just learning to dress himself (not always in his own clothes!) and he LOVES hats. Especially pom pom hats, so I made this one for him. This crochet cable hat will keep his head nice and warm in colder climates as it is made with 100% wool. I felt the classic look of cables would be complimented by a classic fiber choice and I just love the result!

Crochet Super Scarf:  free pattern

I have always loved long, over sized scarves so this ‘wear a blanket around your neck’ trend is making me very happy. Unfortunately I live in Florida so when I set out to make my own crochet super scarf pattern I knew I had to cut down on the bulk a little and make it somewhat lacy. I came up with a simple shell stitch scarf pattern that will let me and others from a warmer climate, participate in this trend but not get heat stroke in December 🙂

Make your own yarn cake

Yarn cakes seem to be everywhere you look lately! The  most popular ones are exclusively sold at Michael’s stores and since I do not have one near me I decided to go ahead and make my own. In case you are almost ready to get into the Holiday spirit (like me!) classic Christmas colors will do nicely.

In the spirit of the season I want to explore another distinct positive emotion and how crocheting for charity can be a tool to achieve and practice it.
