I set out to make a striped hat but somehow it did not dawn on me that my stripes would turn out vertical until I started 🙂 . How fun is the vertical illusion that the moss stitch brings to this project? You will work this striped crochet hat from brim to crown. The pattern is really very easy and would be fun in any colors. This is one of those stitches that can work for super chunky yarn and sport weight alike. It always creates a cohesive, almost knit look fabric and I definitely will use it again for a hat.

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!

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 🙂

I am so excited to introduce you to my free Fall Afghan crochet pattern. This Afghan pattern is a wonderful addition to your autumn must make crocheting collection. I have designed it for a fall wedding and used a beautiful assortment of Sport weight yarn from Knitpicks.com in warm, leafy tones. I love how it came out.
The stitch used is a variation of the waffle stitch and I was first introduced to it while crocheting a Christening gown. I think the stitch makes for a really nice texture and drape for a lighter throw.
