This free crochet Lobster Hat pattern is sure to be a hit at Halloween. My little guy actually just wears it for pretend play all the time as well. It’s a beginner pattern and you’ll learn a few amigurumi tricks along the way. The hat works really well as a cut crustacean photo prop. I’ve written the animal hat pattern in five sizes – from Newborn to child. You can use your favorite crochet hat and just skip down to the Lobster bits or you can follow the simple double crochet hat pattern with a ribbed brim that’s included. (Always handy to have when you need to whip up a speedy hat!) This pattern is free to use on my site or you can purchase a printable Pdf version from my Ravelry store HERE

Ever wondered how to get rid of that clumsy seam when you make a hat with double crochet stitches? When I first started making hats this was my number one problem. I was proud as can be when I had finished the hat, until the person turned around! Maybe I am a bit OCD (okay, maybe a lot OCD) when it comes to crochet but a badly noticeable seam will ruin my work for me. I want to show you how to make a seamless crochet join.

Our family had to evacuate due to Hurricane Irma and I am writing this post because there is a good possibility that I wont have power or internet until the end of September.
I will try to check in when I get the chance. I have already heard that our house is in good shape without major damage. We are lucky and I really wish everyone affected by the recent natural disasters all the best. Going through something like this can be so scary but when I witnessed how we all pulled together, no matter our backgrounds or beliefs , I feel there is hope for humanity yet!
Good luck to everyone and I am truly happy to be part of this loving community of crafters 💙
If you haven’t yet, I really recommend you check out the new Caron cotton cakes. I fell in love with the colors and the yarn is soft enough for a new baby.

This free crochet Giraffe pattern has brought me so much joy over the last two years, that I finally had to write it out and share it here.

There is no chance of a bad mood when you finish making this crochet Giraffe!
When 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!
Of course I always feel like my current project is my favorite but this crochet poncho really is! 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!

I am always intrigued by the versatility of crochet. The Flower Stitch, also known as the Daisy Stitch, is a really beautiful example for this versatility.

I felt compelled to write this post after I received a comment from a reader that really resonated with me. I realized that this was a story I had heard many times, people who have used crochet as a lifeline after suffering a loss. A woman, who bought some of my yarn at a garage sale, started talking to me about the role crochet played in her life and her story actually encouraged me to start crochettherapy.com.
