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.

Happy Hoarding!

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.

Chevron Cushion

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!

Lime Verbena

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.

Caramel

Caramel
Free Crochet Pattern – Caramel

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

Free Crochet Patterns – 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

Bobble Stitch Cowl
Free Crochet Pattern – 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

Beret and Scarflette Set
Free Crochet Pattern – 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.

Handy Scarf

Handy Scarf
Free Crochet Patterns – Handy Scarf

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

Free Crochet Pattern – 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.

Raving Rabbid

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.
