This week focuses on my pick for the Top Five Friday Finds in free crochet sun-themed patterns you’ll enjoy for summer. From a beautiful mandala-like potholder to amigurumi patterns everyone likes – all make summer, well – fun!
Another old pattern I’ve pulled from the carnage to resurrect… okay, so it’s an old pattern I pulled from the archive and updated. 😉 Adding a fun face and the words “boo” creates a fun decorative potholder to decorate your kitchen for Halloween!
Need dishcloths, BBQ mitts, cozies, or coasters; its covered! And best of all, each speaks with a summer theme that will boost your spirits in a practical way!
Stitch up a rose centered hotpad that’s easier than you think! A fun project and great gift when paired with a cookbook or food basket for mom or someone special on your gift list!
I’m thrilled to be part of the CrochetVille National Crochet Month Blog Tour! With attention turned to crochet this month, I designed textured thread coasters. They’re perfect for spring, Easter, and/or Mother’s day. Including textured into the design puts a spin on it – pun intended. Enjoy!
Part 2 of our Decorative Poinsettia Christmas Potholder is ready! Hopefully you’ll find time to enjoy crocheting over the 4 day Thanksgiving weekend! This CAL will be three (3) weeks long and each segment will be introduced on Wednesdays.
A brand new CAL – for Christmas! Our beautiful poinsettia decorative potholder will be lovely hanging in your kitchen this Christmas. Part 1 – the poinsettia center! This CAL will be three (3) weeks long and each segment will be introduced on Wednesdays.
A recent request for this potholder that I designed years back was the deciding factor in bringing it back. Updated instructions with a new larger and better image make it even better than before! For a functional potholder, use cotton! And if you want a fun potholder for summer – work in dark brown for a “chocolate pie!”
Mandalas are popular. They’re vibrant, fun, textured and functional depending on what you make! This version is a hotpad using 3 colors. Enjoy!
Our what’s old is new again bell-shaped potholder/hotpad is back! Just renamed because, after all, there are so many holidays and/or special occasions this potholder could be used. Bells are perfect for New Years (originally named New Year’s Bell Potholder), but also for Christmas, the 4th of July, weddings and more. See if you can think of other occasions! This project is for decorative purposes only. If you plan to use your potholder/hotpad, use cotton yarn!
Our decorative potholder will have you dreaming of pumpkins with it’s textured stitching and big full leaves. Celebrate fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving!
Our versatile snowflake can be worked with any medium and appropriate hook size to make delicate ornaments to sturdy cotton hot pads and coasters. Or make three-dimensional ornaments by molding – instructions included. Enjoy!
Our barbecue mitt is handy to use while barbecuing and because of the yarn used, just toss in the laundry when needed. It’s a fun project to work and makes a wonderful gift when added to a “Barbecue Gift Basket!” Add long handled tongs, some seasoning packets for marinating, the mitt, a few food items and grill rack… viola!
For a complete kitchen ensemble for the holidays work up our free CD hotpad with matching placemat and coaster patterns! Set the perfect table and sit back and enjoy the festivities!
Crochet a fun and patriotic star-shaped hot pad for the 4th! Worked with popcorn stitches for texture, dimension and thickness – it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
