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!

There are lots of versions and sizes of crocheted hearts out there and I thought I’d share my versions here just in time for Valentine’s day. When I draw hearts they always come out nice and roundish so my crocheted versions had to come out the same way. Keep reading for free crochet heart pattern in three sizes!
I have been working on this design for a while and it was supposed to be an ear warmer at first. After some crocheting, though, I knew I wanted to turn it into one of these super practical messy bun hats that nearly broke the internet. The pattern is not necessarily for beginners (unless you are ambitious!) but it’s a really fun, boho – y stitch combination. I just love the texture and it combines everything I enjoy about crochet! I think it is well worth learning and maybe you’ll want to make a cowl or scarf with these stitches as well. Keep reading for the free crochet Messy Bun hat pattern!
I just love the look of crochet fingerless gloves. When the Crochet Berry hat was done the rest of my purple Vanna’s Choice yarn was calling and I had to answer. These crochet fingerless mitts work up really fast and the pattern is pretty easy. The set will really look great and is sure to keep you nice and warm!

The whole time while I was making this hat it reminded me of something. I couldn’t quite tell what it was and only when it was finished did I see it. Blackberries! Make this yummy hat with a ribbed brim to keep your ears nice and toasty. It’s also designed to have a little slouch which makes it very comfy. Keep reading for the free crochet berry hat pattern!
Crochet a ribbed Brim
The ribbing stitch is a crochet stitch that almost looks like knit fabric. This stitch is perfect for the brim of a hat, the ends of gloves or the sleeves and bottom of sweaters. I think it gives a nice, finished look to wearable projects and it’s pretty easy to learn. My most favorite part of this crochet trick is that the fabric becomes stretchy.

Even if you live in warmer parts of the world, December still makes you want to crochet warm, cozy projects. I wanted to design a hat that looked chunky and fun. Creating texture with crochet has really intrigued me lately. How wonderful that this craft allows us so much versatility? I think this free crochet slouchy hat pattern looks so comfy and I really enjoy the knit look. I made one for me but my ten year old daughter immediately wanted one too. The pattern for my slouchy crochet hat comes in two sizes now: S/M: big kid – teen and M/L adult woman.
***When I first wrote this pattern I mainly had Christmas cards in mind. Well, 8 months later I am happy to report that the card organizer has transitioned into a mail organizer and my family actually uses it every day!***
