The newest motif of the month is a super fast open work flower made with fun and easy bobbles.
Never made a bobble? No worries. I walk you though it step-by-step in the free video tutorial that accompanies the free written pattern.
I call this motif the cobweb because it reminds me a cobweb in it’s design. The motif uses back post double crochet to create the color bursts and cobweb effect. I used varigated yarn, but you can change up the pattern with solid colors (black and grey would be a great Halloween blanket).
I go through the back post double crochet very slowly, so if you’ve never tried this stitch before, this is a great tutorial to finally try a post stitch.
The Lily Pad Motif, is a great 3 dimensional motif that uses the popular crocodile stitch to make the petals of the flower.
The free video tutorial will show you exactly how to make the crocodile stitch, which is deceptively simple.
I really like this new motif. The flower has a 3D effect that is really cool.
Plus there is no sewing!
The square is crocheted right into the flower.
It’s actually quite easy, especially with the free video tutorial.
The newest Learn A Stitch Washcloth is an interesting and easy variation of the half double crochet stitch.
The piggyback stitch is aptly named because one half double piggybacks onto another to create this unique texture.
The video will walk you through the piggyback process while making a useful washcloth.
This baby blanket is made with a sometimes hard to learn waffle weave stitch.
It’s actually a very easy stitch, but learning it from a book can be difficult, so I made a video and added a free pattern to get you going.
This pattern is easy to customize to any size bed so don’t think it’s just for babies.
The “double thickness” of the waffle weave is super warm and surprisingly soft and squishy.
Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope all your holidays will be wonderful.
If you get some yarn under your tree and need to whip up a quick baby gift, consider this new free pattern.
The Super Easy Baby Beanie will give you a darling product in just a couple of hours. The alternating single crochet, double crochet rounds give it a striped effect with no effort. Consider changing colors during those rounds for an even more fun look.
It’s December which means it’s snowflake time for Motif of the Month!
Here is the third installment and I love how easy and fast this one works up. Plus it is so dense that it doesn’t need blocking if you don’t want to do it.

The Regal Diamond will look great in a triangle shawl, or turn it so it’s a square and make a beautiful blanket.
Though this is not a new pattern from me, it is now a free pattern.
This mobius cowl uses a unique foundation chain row that creates a seamless twist, which means, no sewing at the end. Plus I’ve made a video tutorial on how to do it in case it’s needed.
These cowls work up in just a few hours and they can be customized to fit anyone young or old. Plus, you can change the colors to make them for males or females. This is the perfect holiday present.
The entire thing is single crochet as well, which makes it perfect for beginner crocheters. So what are you waiting for?
