I have made some of the little hearts from the heart garland on last weeks post and shared some with friends. I have been thinking of making more and attaching little love notes for my friends or little people. Maybe even to leave around town randomly?

Let me repeat that. This pattern contains almost ZERO sewing. Everything is worked seamlessly and crocheted together, except for the two little ears (which you can totally omit if you want to!). Yay!
Happy New Year! We’re starting off the New Year with these free crochet patterns curated especially for you by Karla’s Making It.
A Curated List of New Free Crochet Patterns January Week 1
Hello Hello My Friend!
Happy New Year to you!
I hope the first days of this new year have been kind to you.
Have you found much time to crochet? Did you get all your Christmas projects done? Are you starting on next years projects already?
I always admire those who start on next years projects really early. I would forget what I made at the beginning of the year if I had to hold onto it all year long. But I do aspire…
Do you have a resolution to crochet more this year? Mine is to finish more of my Wips (Works in Progress) and there are many I am embarrassed to say. Some in very very lovely and expensive yarn that I splurged on. I know… Bad Karla
Oh hey, If you want to see what I am working on, even the unfinished projects, you should follow me on Instagram.
But anyway, there is no shortage of New Free Patterns posted from all our friends out there on the Googles, and I rounded up the best ones here for you.
Are you enjoying these free pattern posts? We did one for each week in December in case you missed them… Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, and Week 4.
A Curated List of New Free Crochet Patterns January Week 1
Large Flower Wheel Coaster Square
The squares can be made with any yarn – the ones on the photos are made with Scheepjes Catona and a 3 mm hook (4-ply), Drops Belle and a 4 mm hook (DK) and Drops Nepal and a 5 mm hook (Aran), but any yarn and colour scheme would work.
This simple but striking chevron cushion is crocheted in cool cottons, and the pattern notes include two sizes. Backed with vintage fabric, they make a great addition to any sofa!
The Free Pattern for the Lime Verbena Shawl comes with full crochet instructions and a complete step-by-step video tutorial. Perfect accessory and easy enough for an advanced beginner crocheter, and interesting enough for experienced crocheters alike.
The Caramel shawl is symmetric and is crocheted from one side to the other. This shawl is called Caramel because it’s color. Final measurement without blocking is 55 x 230 cm (without tassels). Pattern is charted with some basic notes but she rates it as beginners friendly.
The Chelsea Beehive Messy Bun Hat
The textured hat is worked from the bottom up. A ribbed brim creates just the right amount of stretch to get the hat over even the thickest of hair and the horizontal beehive ribs create such a great, stylish texture that makes this a versatile and comfortable bun beanie.
Bobble Stitch Cowl
To make this cowl you need to know how to make a circle from a chain, how to crochet in the back bumps of the chain, how to single, double and triple crochet, how to do post stitches (crocheting around the post of a stitch instead of in the stitch), how to crochet in back loops only (blo) and how to crochet the bobble stitch.
Crochet Beret and Scarflette Set
This women’s beret and scarflette set has flexibility and can be adjusted to suit your liking. The Heartland yarn from Lion Brand worked up so nicely. This is a favorite yarn to work with-it’s so soft, worsted weight and machine washable.
This is a fun project for teens or adults and it works up quickly because you hold two strands of yarn together throughout. I even made a short video (at the end of the pattern) that shows you how to wrap the scarf so your mittens hang down in the front.
GIANT OCTOPUS AMIGURUMI
Make sure to read the reviews on this one. It is too cute not to include but some had issues with how many legs were able to be attached with the instructions as they are. The successful projects included one extra stitch in the set up round.
Rayman Raving Rabbids is a video game and a TV show featuring these goofy looking creatures. Here is a pattern for a crocheted version. This pattern is for a Rabbid big enough for cuddling. Have fun!
This cute Crochet Penguin Applique is the next creation in Lucy’s series of Heart Shaped Appliques free crochet patterns. This Crochet Penguin is made with hearts in different sizes and would be perfect for Valentine’s Day! She used a Large Heart with flippers for the body, Small Hearts for the feet and a Tiny Heart for the beak.
Requiring only single and double crochet and a very simple construction, this free crochet bag pattern is perfect for beginners. Neutral colors and a beautiful texture combine to form the perfect modern tote.
Faux Knit Ear Warmer
This crocheted headband gives you the knit look as well as the stretchy feel to keep your ears extra snug and cozy. It is a bit wider than other ear warmers so you don’t have to fiddle around much when wearing them.
This is a quick to crochet stash buster project for medium weight yarn. Worked with 2 strands of medium weight yarn held together this lovely textured container can be worked up in about one hour.
MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU: LIGHTSABER
This light saber case can be used for anything, but it works well for crochet afghan hooks and knitting needles. She also provided the details needed to adapt the pattern into a plush toy that can be stuffed.
Face wash headband
What do you think my friends. Do any of those look interesting to you? I would love to see what you are working on!! Seriously! I love inspiration and you guys are so creative! Hit me up on the Karla’s Making It Facebook Page and post a photo.
A Curated List of New Free Crochet Patterns December Week 4
Hello my yarn loving friends!!
Did you survive the holidays? Whew, that came and went so fast this year.
I swear, the older I get the faster the years roll. I hope this doesn’t continue, or my years will feel like weeks!
That won’t get a lot of crocheting done at all.
How about 2018? You ready?
Do you keep New Years Resolutions? Notice I said keep? lol
I don’t usually make any but this year I did make a few. I’ll let you know what they are soon.
In the meantime, lets get to this weeks new free patterns, shall we?
Here’s what I found for you this week.
A Curated List of New Free Crochet Patterns December Week 4
crochet new years banner
Happy New Year! It’s almost 2018! And to celebrate Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me designed a little crochet New Year banner! This piece really sparkles and shines in person! Add a little fringe and tassels for extra flair!
Japanese Maple Leaf
This cute little leaf is in American crochet terms and begins from the stem ending at the 4 tips of the leaf. There are detailed pictures as well as a chart for reference.
BOBBLES AND STRIPES BABY BLANKET
Although its fun to make little hats and outfits, it’s also nice to mindlessly crochet and not have to worry about shaping. That’s what makes blankets so appealing to me. You can easily customize the colors in this blanket by swapping out the pink for green, blue, yellow… whatever you like.
The motifs resemble little snowflakes in different colours of the Northern lights. The blanket is joined and bordered in white, making the colours stand out even more. The blanket measures 90 x 120 cm (35.5 x 47in) but is easily adaptable in size. The pattern contains written instructions and crochet diagrams, and is written in US terms. The Borealis Blanket is suitable for advanced beginners or intermediate crocheters.
THE CAMPFIRE CARDIGAN
Two simple granny hexagons are the foundation of this free crochet hexagon sweater pattern. Once they’re seamed in the back and shoulders, you’ll add rows of granny stitch lengthen the sweater, add longer sleeves, and you’ll make a basic rectangular hood on the top to make your crochet hexagon sweater extra comfy and work a simple border around all the sweater edges.
Four-Hour Fall Sweater
This is a free crochet pattern that uses a super chunky yarn (or chunky, up to you!) and an oversized crochet hook. This helps to keep the chunky sweater chunky without suffocating you at the same time.
THE DWELL SWEATER
Learn how to crochet a sweater step-by-step in the Dwell Sweater video tutorial. This is a fantastic beginner sweater pattern because there is no shaping, increasing or decreasing. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the video tutorial and get the complete free Dwell Sweater written pattern.
This lightweight garment easily does double duty as either a poncho or a cute beach skirt.
Leaf Stitch Tutorial
The leaf stitch is just wonderful and very easy to learn. It is perfect for making elegant crochet skirts, cardigans, ponchos and any other dresses.
Capricorn Zodiac Dishcloth
Here you will find the final dishcloth in a year long Zodiac Dishcloth series, – check out the lovely Capricorn Dishcloth by Beth Major.
There are actually a ton of uses for them. Off the top of her head, she came up with gift topper, gift card holder, hanging decoration for home or office, tree decoration, fill them with candy for small children and I’m pretty sure the size is great for the tiny hands of 1 or 2-year-olds as actual gloves!
Fair Isle Snowflake Christmas Stocking
I have another Christmas stocking crochet pattern for you today from Petals to Picots. I just love the festive snowflake design on this one.
See how much I love you? Lol! Weren’t those great? I hope at least one inspired you to make something beautiful with your time. If not, at least you got to look at something pretty someone else made for a few minutes.
What do you like crocheting? What inspires you?
I like looking at textures and see if I can replicate them. I also like blending colors, so photography inspires me too. Especially patterns.
Here’s another carefully and lovingly curated list of new and free crochet patterns that I come across in my surfing of all things yarn.
A Curated List of New Free Crochet Patterns December Week 3
Hello my yarn loving friends,
Are you all ready for Christmas? I sure hope so!
I got done early this year. I’m finding it so much easier with the kiddos being older.
I do miss leaving out cookies for Santa and carrots for Rudolph, and leaving foot prints and “snow” and all the other fun things you get to do when you aren’t an empty nester.
I guess I will just have to look forward for grandkids someday. Then Christmas will be much more fun again.
Anyway, that gives me more time to crochet!!

146 Free Crochet Christmas Ornament Patterns – curated by Karla’s Making It!!
One thing I resolve to do every year is to make an entire Christmas tree covered in Crochet Christmas Ornaments and this is the year I am going to follow through with the help of these 146 Free Crochet Christmas Ornament Patterns.
Ha ha ha hahahahaha…. And then I woke up! I should have started in January if I was going to meet that goal (hmmm – future crochet-a-long??).
Anyway, at least if I have a goal of having a tree covered in crochet Christmas ornaments, I should at least compile a list of (more) patterns, right?
I hope you enjoyed this curated list of 146 Free Crochet Christmas Ornament Patterns!
As always I appreciate your visit. I wouldn’t be doing this if you were here taking advantage of my work! (I’m hearing the song lyrics – “Everything I do, I do it for you” by Bryan Adams – HA!) If you have a second, be a pal and share this post for me on Social Media! I could always use new visitors.
Also, did you know that I design patterns? Visit the shop to see what I have come up with lately.
How are you all??? Summer is officially over, well, the weather isn’t acting like it… But the kiddos are back in school and I’m back here for YOU with New Crochet Ideas, Inspiration and of course New and Free Crochet Patterns.
I thought I would start with some crochet inspiration I have run across and the multitude of ideas that I get from Pinterest.
Do you Pinterest? If you do, you have to follow me – I have over 12000 pins (I know!!! But, in my defense, I started pinning back when they were new, so… yeah)
If you DON’T Pinterest – are you crazy? It’s my life. Ok, not my life – my Prince and my pesky darling kids are my life but crochet comes in a close fourth or fifth… 😉
Anyway, I love seeing something else in a pattern. Do you do that? For example, I see this jacket (free chart below) and I want to make a tablecloth with those large pineapple flower squares so bad! I wish I could crochet faster – ugh! I would make two!
This Cape pattern inspires me to design a Christmas Tree Skirt. Wouldn’t that be pretty? I see white lofty yarn – or maybe light blue with metallic?
And speaking of Christmas – how about some snowflakes. Those are always fun when you have a little bit of cotton around… Great when your board or need some I-finally-completed-a-pattern Project. You know the ones….
Plus they make good gift toppers and tags. I fantasize about an entire tree of them! Someday…
Are you inspired to start making Christmas gifts? I have started a few things but they haven’t worked out. You know how it goes. Sometimes, a pattern is just too boring or I’m just not feeling it. Am I the only one? Anyone else do that?
Historically, I don’t usually give Crochet gifts for Christmas. The only reason I ever came up with is that I didn’t think anyone would want that stuff.
I don’t know – perhaps I will change my mind someday. How about you? Do you like to give crochet gifts? What kinds of crochet patterns do you deem worthy of gift giving?
The Scrubby has been the most popular so far. Maybe I will put some in a basket with bath salts, a candle, hmmm what else???
I was also admiring this scarf. Doesn’t it look luscious? I NEED that yarn in my life! Do you think it looks manly enough for, well, a man? That would make a good gift for my east coast family. We don’t have much use for scarves here.
Beyond Christmas, my kiddos are college age so we still have wedding and babies in our future and that is always inspiring.
I have come across this dress (pattern no longer available)
and it inspires a lovely wrap, maybe in white for a wedding?
I love these capes / wraps too:
Well that’s it for this edition of “Saw These and Thought of You.” I’m thinking about making this a regular thing… Let me know what you think! What has been inspiring you lately? I would love to talk crochet with you. Let me know in the comments.
I hope you all enjoy what is left of the summer! Enjoy the Labor Day Weekend – (OH YEAH! 10% off all patterns at Etsy this weekend only – it’s supposed to be an automatic thing, no code necessary). xoxo
