Since spring is here, we can finally stop bookmarking all the thick afghan patterns and all the chunky wool cowls we we wanted to make, and start creating a list of projects that are perfectly appropriate for the upcoming weather.
I like to crochet year round, so I decided to put together a list of ten of the patterns I've been eying to share with you. Enjoy!
This potholder pattern, available for free on Ravelry, is so deliciously 70s that I can't deny it. Even if you didn't want to use it as a potholder, you could still make it and hang it from the wall as a decoration or sew it on the back of your backpack as a patch.
Eeee! Pastel bunny pen covers. What else could be perfect for Easter time or, well, for all the times. Check out this sweet pattern on Annoo's Crochet World.
I think bobbles are the "it thing" for me so far this year. The popcorn still is adorable; I love the texture it adds to everything. These chunky bobble bows from Lulu Loves are very sweet and I want to make about a million.
Crochet cacti amigurumi! Even the dirt is crochet. Yeah, these are definitely so necessary.
Pizza is forever. Pizza is in season whatever time of year it is. Therefore, this pizza garland really needs to be displayed in every household, office, and cute little boutique in all the world like... yesterday. Thanks Twinkie!!
Before summer gets here, it's true - it still can get a little chilly. You don't need full mittens, but these pretty shell wrist warmers will keep you cosy when it's not quite hot out. I found these free fingerless gloves on Ravelry. (And hey! I made these once already!)
This free pattern is for the puff/bobble stitch that I love so much -- thes colors are so pretty to me. You could use this pattern to make a scarf, a bag, legwarmers, washcloth, potholder, etc. So useful! So cute!
Peacock feather appliques! I smell belly dance costume accessories... I could make a belt, maybe a headpiece. Hmmm. Let me start a list.
There is something about granny square projects with a white border that attract me every time. They are so clean and crisp and welcoming, I really need to go ahead and just finish one of these for once. This granny square pillow looks NOT that time consuming. (Especially compared to a whole blanket.)
And last but not least, this watermelon coin purse is adorable. I've never used a sharp crochet hook before, though, have you? It looks scary! But adding a zipper looks way easy with it.
