I Saw These and Thought of You – New Crochet Patterns and Inspiration from Karla’s Making It

Tunisian Ripple Scarf Pattern

Hi Friends,

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!

Crochet Vest Pattern that would make a great tablecloth!
Crochet Vest Pattern that would make a great tablecloth!

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?

Shawl or a Christmas Tree Skirt?
Shawl Pattern or a Christmas Tree Skirt?

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?

I was considering some spa gifts with my new spa washcloth and scrubby patterns. I haven’t written this one up yet – isn’t it cute?

Lacy Spa Tunisian Washcloth
Lacy Spa Tunisian Washcloth (pattern coming soon)

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???

Farmhouse Magnolia Crochet Scrubby
Farmhouse Magnolia Crochet Scrubby Pattern

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.

Tunisian Ripple Scarf Pattern

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)

Dress Pattern - this stitch would make a beautiful wrap
Dress Pattern – this stitch would make a beautiful wrap

and it inspires a lovely wrap, maybe in white for a wedding?

I love these capes / wraps too:

Gardenia Shawl

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

Make it a Beautiful Day,

Awesome Applique Roundup – Free Crochet Patterns on Karla’s Making It

Hello Friends,

How are you this fine week? I’m doing particularly well since the weather has been warming up.

We have been unusually cooped up here this winter with all the extra cold and rain.




While that has led to a lot of Crochet time, I am ready to work in the garden and hang out at the beach during the day!

How about you? Ready for summer??

Awesome Applique Roundup – Free Crochet Patterns on Karla’s Making It!

This has absolutely nothing to do with today’s Free Crochet Pattern Roundup, lol.

Or maybe it does… my short attention span is looking for short easy to finish projects – appliques are always good for this.

What to do with Crochet Appliques

There are so many things we can do with those little cuties. I have been brainstorming about doing a baby ABC book or even an afghan.

They are great for adding to the border of an easy blanket or purse. In fact, there are so many uses!

  • Magnets
  • Bookmarks
  • Sew together for wrap, scarf, tablecloth
  • Add to clothing/socks
  • Jewelry
  • Headband
  • Pacifier clip
  • Coasters
  • Garland
  • Ornaments
  • Pillows
  • Corsage, Bouquet, Boutonniere
  • so much more!!

Free Crochet Heart Cup Cozy Pattern from Karla’s Making It

Make a Heart Cup Cozy with this latest free pattern from Karla’s Making It

Free Crochet Heart Cup Cozy Pattern from Karla’s Making It

Hello Crochet Friends!

How’s February going for you? Filled with lots of LOVE I hope, with more to come.

How to you celebrate Valentines? Do you smother yourself with lots of love? I hope so. If we don’t treat ourselves well, who will – right?

One thing I like to do for myself is to have tea in the afternoons. Especially if it’s chilly and rainy like it has been lately. Do you like tea?

Thing is, since I don’t drink tea all the time, I forget about it and end up leaving it all over the house!

Once I didn’t find my cup until the next day… on the shelf… over the washer. mmm hmmmm

Anyway, most of the time I just misplace it for a little while. Just enough time for it to get cold… Please tell me I’m not the only one!

The handy dandy microwave warm it back up for me but it’s just not the same, ya know?

So to keep my tea warmer for a little longer and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I decided to whip up this Heart Cup Cozy all for me! (I posted the pattern below if you want to make one too!)

free crochet pattern for a Heart Cup Cozy!

It goes with a cute bee one that I made a while back.

Do you like my Heart Cup Cozy?

The Bee Cozy is from this booklet Leisure Arts, Inc. called, appropriately enough, Crochet Cup Cozies.

It is a darling book if you like quick cute projects. I think cup cozies are darling gifts, especially for my girlfriends and the kids teachers!

Right now you can save 15% off everything in your shopping cart.Use promo code ART15. I always like looking through their 60% off Clearance Sale area too for some great deals.

I have these two cup cozies on my to do list. Cute huh?

Free Crochet Pattern cup cozy and book review from Karla's Making It www.karlasmakingit.com

Well, like I said, I wrote up a pattern for the heart cup cozy I made for myself and here it is so you can make one too!

Do you know how to use a graph? If you do, scroll down and you can just use the graph and have that baby whipped up in no time. I also put some notes for more advanced crocheters.

(Note that the tips are NOT approved by the National Crochet Foundation {is there such a thing?} and I’m sure somebody would have a cow if I published the pattern my way but a girl needs shortcuts, right??

free crochet pattern for a Heart Cup Cozy!

I used blue and red worsted weight cotton yarn from my stash and an H hook. You will also need a needle to weave in the ends.

The cup cozy is made by starting with a Foundation Single Crochet (FSC). If you don’t know how to do a FSC, you will NOT regret learning that little trick – what a time saver.  You can find lots of tutorials on YouTube.

Karla’s Heart Cup Cozy Free Crochet Pattern

Make a Foundation Single Crochet of 29 stitches. Join to the first stitch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 1, sc in the next 28 sts. Sl st to ch 1

Round 2: Repeat round 1

Round 3: Ch 1, sc in next 13 sts, changing color to red on the last part of the stitch. sc in next st with red, changing color back to blue on the last part of the st. Sc to end and sl st to Ch 1.

Round 4: Ch 1, sc in next 12 sts, changing color to red on the last part of the stitch. Sc in next 3 sts with red, changing color back to blue on the last part of the 3rd st. Sc to end and sl st to Ch 1.

Round 5: Ch 1, sc in next 11 sts, changing color to red on the last part of the stitch. Sc in next 5 sts with red, changing color back to blue on the last part of the 5th st. Sc to end and sl st to Ch 1.

Round 6: Ch 1, sc in next 10 sts, changing color to red on the last part of the stitch. Sc in next 7 sts with red, changing color back to blue on the last part of the 7th st. Sc to end and sl st to Ch 1.

Round 7: Ch 1, sc in next 9 sts, changing color to red on the last part of the stitch. Sc in next 9 sts with red, changing color back to blue on the last part of the 9th st. Sc to end and sl st to Ch 1.

Sc to end and sl st to Ch 1.

Round 11-13: Ch 1, sc in the next 28 sts. Sl st to ch 1

Border: Ch 1 and sl st into same st. *Sk 1 stitch and make 5 sc in next st. Sk next st and sl st into next stitch. Repeat from * around. Join with a slip stitch and fasten off. Attach yarn to bottom and make the same border. Fasten off, weave in ends, and post a picture on the Karla’s Making It Facebook Page!!

heart cup cozy graph

Notes (optional):

  • After making the FSC, I made the border on the bottom of the cozy and then joined the ends. That way I didn’t have to go back and attach the yarn to do the border.
  • Even though I ch 1 on every round, I also make the first sc in the same st. I don’t like the gap that is created with just a ch 1. At the end of the round, I join with a sl st first sc and not the Ch 1.

So how does it look? I bet you did amazing. Hopefully this helped give you a have a relaxing afternoon and a little gift for you!

On Valentine’s and every day, I appreciate you! Thanks for visiting with me today.

Make it a Beautiful (and Loving) Day,

The Madeline Flower Crochet Rug Pattern – by Karla’s Making It

Crochet Rug - Rounds 1 - 4

 

The Madeline Flower Crochet Rug

The Madeline Crochet Rug Pattern

Here are all the round so far
Part 1 – Below
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
You can stop at anytime. When someone is working on part 4 let me know and I will work more rounds.

Hello Crochet Friends,

So I have been working on this Crochet Rug for quite a while.  Increasing like a normal circle wasn’t working the bigger the rug got and the rug wouldn’t lay flat.

I did some research, tried a few small samples, and frogged my first Flower Crochet Rug. Yes, I did have a tear.  Just one.


I grabbed my hook and my new knowledge about crocheting circles, and got started again and this time – success!

The other day, I posted my rug to one of my Crochet Facebook Groups – Crochet Addicts Uncensored asking for advice.  One or two of the gals over there wanted to make the rug too!

So we’re all going to crochet the rug together! If you want to talk about the rug pattern, you can comment below or post/message my on my Facebook Page. Be brave and post your WIP (work in progress) pics!! Help me stay motivated to keep writing this up 😉

Do I need to give a disclaimer? I should just in case.

Ok, here it is…

This pattern is NOT written in professional form. This pattern has not been tested and may have mistakes – in fact I guarantee it does.  

I chose to live with the imperfections and just add or take away leftover stitches that didn’t work out. If you want to wait for the final version of the pattern, feel free. I will still leave this here 😉 I will also be creating a photo tutorial, once the pattern is complete.

I don’t know how much yarn I will need but I started with two 14 oz skeins of worsted weight white cotton.

Ok, let’s start this thing.  I will write up a few rounds at a time until I catch you up to where I am, ok? I’m still working on this pattern even though it is live. 

Materials

  • Start with 2 skeins of Lily Sugar’n Cream White Cotton Yarn
  • J hook
  • Stitch markers

The maker of Lily Sugar n’ Cream is Yarnspiration.com.  They currently have the Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Big Ball for $9.99 – sometimes they will have a sale.

I usually purchase it from either Michael’s or Joann’s depending on who has the better coupon, since I have both nearby. I have been ordering online at Joann’s lately because of certain color of cotton they don’t stock here for some reason – like Robin’s Egg Blue!?!?! My fav color!

Anyway, they ALWAYS have coupons, usually 40-60% off one regular priced item and anywhere from 25-30% off entire order – sometimes even sale and clearance products, so don’t order from either store without at least one! Here’s their coupon pages:

Notes

You will be making two passes for each round. One of hdcs and one of petals.

I use stitch markers to mark the first and last hdc stitches as we will be working in a spiral, with NO sl st at the end of each round. On your last petal of the round, your next stitch will be a Hdc, and after your last hdc, you will go right into making a petal.

The Super Scarf – Your Biggest Accessory this Season!


Hello my Crochet Friends,

Have you seen all the posts and pins about the Super Scarf?

We are still having wonderful warm weather here in Southern California. I haven’t seen anyone wearing the huge scarf, but give it time. Although it may never get cold enough to actually wear the hugest scarf on the planet, it won’t stop some of us participating in a trend. Especially if it keep us warm, AND looks good! 🙂

It’s crazy how viral some of these patterns go.  I’ve seen mermaid tails for months.  A ton of people jumped on the braided cowl pattern, and a few of us made the Jelly Fish (even though we didn’t have a kid to make it for).

EDIT: The blue scarf below is actually knitted. I know – I had a tear too… but I added another beautiful one at the bottom for you since I love you so much. Sorry about that.

Well it’s called a Super Scarf is the latest trend in crochet, and for good reason. It’s warm, cozy, and pretty much feels like getting a warm fuzzy hug all day long!

What qualifies as a Super Scarf? Well, technically it is anything that is larger than a traditional scarf. But I would describe it as scarf, meets shawl, meets blanket all in one!

Really! Look at these things! They are huge! What a bold fashion statement! You cannot get cold with this thing around you!!

Its a great way to get some family off the Christmas List and to get rid of some of my stash 🙂

The other thing great about the Super Scarf is you can wear it so many ways!! There’s a video from Yarnspirations called 9 Ways to Tie your Scarf! Check it out and change up how you wear your super scarf!

EDIT: Here’s the bonus Free Scarf Pattern!! Again, Sorry about that. I’m gonna leave it for any knitters – and because I’m trying to learn 🙂

Free Work in Progress (WIP) Printable from Karla’s Making It

Hi there Knitters and Crocheters,

Guess What? I made a WIP printable for you!!!

I have a problem! Seriously! Maybe you have it too? Crochet (and knitting) ADHD. I start a project and then I see another stitch, or square, or afghan that I want and put my current WIP down to start a new one. I do this all the time! I think I have 8 projects going on at the moment! There may even be more! Yikes!

The problem is, sometime, when I go to pick up my previous project, I forget which hook I was using. Or I go to look for the pattern, only to realize I haven’t a clue where I saved it – Pinterest? Ravelry? In my documents folder? On my phone? UGH!! Please tell me you do this too!

Well, if you have this problem too I have created a WIP Printable for us to keep track of all those PROJECTS! Yayyy!! I hope you find this as useful as I do!!

Here’s what it looks like. You can click the PDF link below the image to print out your own WIP Printable.

How many projects do you have going at any one time? How do you keep all your WIPs straight?

Hope this helps everyone!!
