Patriotic Place Mats



Patriotic Place Mats

These place mats are so freaking easy and perfect to whip up! Decorate your table this Summer with colorful pride! Simple 3 double crochet clusters in a row is the stitch that makes these place mats.

Patriotic Place Mats

I used Hobby Lobby 'I Love This Yarn' in Red, Royal and White. Then for the simple single crochet and double crochet border, I used 'Old Glory'. I think they turned out absolutely awesome!

A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.


There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket.







I'm not perfect at making crochet patterns but I hope all the information any crocheter would need is in here!

Hook Size: H8 Gauge: 1” across cluster Measures: 32” wide by 34"-36” long (sizes vary by crafter) Supplies: 2 skeins each of three contrasting yarns. I used one of my favorite brands of yarn- Caron Simply Soft in Soft BlueRoyal Blue and Off White.
Instructions: Ch 122
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and across
Row 2: ch 1, *(sc, ch 2, 4 dc) all in next sc, sk next 3 sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc
Row 3…

Perfect Pot Holders: Free Crochet Pattern

Perfect Pot Holders

Double-thick, perfect pot holders! Made with cotton yarn. This pattern may be somewhere else on the internet, in a different context, but here is mine for the way I make my pot holders.






ch 27 Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and sc in each ch across. Ch 1, turn
Row 2: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sc, sl st in next sc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1 turn
Row 3: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sl st, sl st in next hdc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece is square. Make two and then using a steel yarn needle and the same yarn used for making them, combine them using an overcasting stitch.


Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

This lacy crochet blanket made of rows of tilted clusters is perfect for your next stashbuster project! The lacy spacing between the crochet stitches goes great in Summer for your little one!

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!
