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

If you are looking for Free Crochet Patterns, you came to the right place. My goal is to be the place you check FIRST for crochet inspiration and ideas. Let me know how I can make that happen. I welcome your ideas!!

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!!

Crochet Some Hygge – Free Cozy Patterns from Karla’s Making It

Crochet Some HyggeCrochet Some Hygge

Here in California we have been having rain like crazy.




I mean seriously crazy! Inches and inches fall every week. I don’t think we typically get more than an inch or so. We have been in a severe drought situation for years…

Not anymore! I’m told we are not totally in the clear but we are no longer listed as severe – YAY!

Anyway, along with all that rain, it’s been unusually COLD. Typically we will have 70F degree days this time of year. NOPE! Not this winter.




So I decided to take advantage of still experiencing cold weather by setting a warm fire, getting my cup of tea, and work on some Hygge crochet!

What is Hygge?

‘ Hygge ’ (pronounced ‘Hoo-ga’) is a Danish word, which means coziness.

I love cozy! Don’t you?

Imagine snuggling on the sofa with a cozy blanket, wearing your favorite blanket sweater while crocheting, enjoying a hot meal with family, drinking a warm cup of tea -all that is Hygge.

We do already have tons of free afghan, baby blanket, baby bootiesnewborn cocoons, cup cozies, granny square blankets, rugs, shawls and wrap patterns that qualify as Hygge here on Karla’s Making It.

But I wanted to add a few more cozy patterns that I have left on my to do list from winter, so here you go…

So what do you think? Are you going to light a candle, get some tea and work on something Snuggly?

As always, I sure appreciate your visit!

If you would like to connect with me, I’m most talkative on Facebook and I have thousands of free crochet patterns on Pinterest, why not head over to one or both and follow me?

Annies Spring Breeze Collection Starry Night

 

New Annies Signature Designs for Spring 2017, 25% off Dahlia Rug Pattern, Other Fiber Arts

and Bonus FREE PATTERNS!

Annies Spring Breeze Collection Cover

New in Annies Signature Designs

I stumbled across these two picture book-style ezine Lookbooks from Annies Signature Designs for their upcoming Annies Spring Breeze Collection for 2017 and I think you might want to go check it out.




It is totally beach inspired and fresh, yet timeless, elegant, and practical.  Right up my alley – and I know some of you like this beach inspired crochet theme as much as I do.

Annies Spring Breeze Collection features tanks, tees, pullovers and cardigans all geared to an audience of crocheters in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50+. That’s us! 

Here are my favs:

Can’t you just see the Sand Dollars on her top? and…

Annies Spring Breeze Collection Wisteria Top Annies Signature Designs
Annies Spring Breeze Collection – Wisteria Top
With the California sun warming my heart I am excited to present the Spring Breeze Collection. Every element of this collection reflects my never-ending love for yarn and the needle arts. I’m fascinated with the details of the seashore, the shells, the rhythm of the tides, and the infinite pastel spectrum of the morning sky. The theme and color palette I chose for this collection captures some of these delicate tones. Please join me in a walk along the shore. Our footprints in the sand may wash away, but my passion woven into this collection will stay on-trend for years to come…
— Lena Skvagerson, Lead Designer, Annie’s Signature Designs

 

They snuck in some darling afghans on the back cover with no pattern in sight yet, hoping they come soon!

I really appreciate their use of natural fibers in this collection and the color palette is amazing. I think you will like it too.

New Yarn

While I was there, I saw their new yarn arrivals.  If you like yarn as much as I do, check out this new one. It’s recycled, so comfortable and look at those colors! YUM!

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!

Cup Cozies from Leisure Arts, Inc.

It’s a good time to pick up this book, or even another one because Leisure Arts, Inc. has a coupon out.

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.

Round 8-9: Repeat round 7

Round 10: Ch 1, sc in next 10 sts, changing color to red on the last part of the stitch. Sc in next 2 sts with red, changing color back to blue on the last part of the 2nd st. Sc in next 3 sts with blue, changing color back to red on the last part of the 3rd st. Sc in next 2 sts with red, changing color back to blue on the last part of the 2nd st. 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,

Hey there,

Hope my crochet friends are doing well.

Good news! I have ALL of the house unpacked!

You probably can relate to what a huge accomplishment that is! Am I right?

One of the best things is that I know where every single thing in the house is. Everything! It is organized and in it’s place. Yes, even all of the chip bag clips I bought over the past year because they kept disappearing, are stored and ready to again be lost.

I want to revel in this moment just for a minute because never, ever will this be so again. Once the princesses and princes get home all bets are off! Join me in a moment of silence. Ommmmmm Ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Thanks!!

Ok, Quick post for you today.  I had an email this week from a Crochet Friend who is in search of Amigurumi Backpack Patterns. I couldn’t let her down but to be honest, there really isn’t many free ones out there.

Here are some of the best free Amigurumi Backpacks I could find today. Also, scroll down for a super darling backpack and free patterns for animal heads to add!! I can’t wait to see all your work!

New FREE Crochet Doily Patterns

New Patterns Added 4-13-2015

I just love trying new Crochet Doily Patterns.  My goal is to have a whole basket full some day that I can pass down to my kiddos (the ones that want them anyway) and keep as treasures, like I do with my Granny’s creations.  I also daydream about making dresses and purses with them.

You have seen all those shabby chic pictures with creations made with doilies, right? Aren’t they fabulous?  Until then, I will keep hoarding free crochet doily patterns, and now you can too!!  Have you even made anything from Doilies?

All of these Free Crochet Doily Patterns are free at the time of this posting.  But, designers have the right to change their mind, and often do.  So if you see one you particularly like, print or work it up now before it’s gone forever!

Enjoy!!
