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!

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.

Chevron Cushion

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

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

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

December week 3 New Free Crochet Patterns

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!!

Did you check out the free crochet patterns from Week 1 or Week 2? How are you liking these weekly freebies? I would love to hear your thoughts,

Anyway, on to this week…  What we have here, in no particular order or category, is a nice list of lovingly and kindly curated New and Free Crochet patterns for your collections!

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 🙂

Karla’s Making It Learns to Knit!

Karla's Making It

Hello and Happy New Year my Crafty Friends!!

How did the holidays treat you? Did you get all the presents you wanted this year? I was spoiled with lots of family time. It was wonderful!

I also picked up a new hobby over the holiday – knitting!! I have always wanted to learn and have tried so many times over the years. Every time I tried, my attempts would end in frustration and I’m sure I tried to stab something with those needles. But not this time!! I think I got the hang of this!

Knit Inspiration
Knit Inspiration from Dona Knits blog

I have fawned over so many knitting projects that you all Pin in my addiction of hoarding crochet patterns. I would see awesome yarn patterns and be so jealous and sad that they turned out to be knitting patterns instead of crochet. Like this pattern for a Chunky Knit Throw.

Fair Isle Fiesta

Isn’t that color work amazing? You just can’t get this look from crochet. Even tapestry crochet. Trust me!! I have tried. You still end up with dots of color where it shouldn’t be. I will admit, it is easier to do crochet color work in the round, but it still looks choppy and…just off. But, seriously, if I can learn to create projects like this, why would I not want to learn?!? Right?

Not only have I found that knitting is way better for color work, but the fabric turns out so amazing There is much more fabulous drape and hang.

On top of that, every knitted stuff animal I see I want to hug! I just don’t feel that way about crochet amigurumi! They seem so stiff and un-cuddly. Check these out!

Aren’t they darling?! My lil girl would LOVE the elephant.  They are her favorite!

What about you? Do you also knit? What are your favorite knitted projects?

Going forward, I plan to include Free Knitting Patterns as well as all the Free Crochet Patterns here on Karla’s Making It.  Maybe I will inspire one of you crocheters to pick up those needles and give it a try!

I will post some links that I used to get started with knitting in a future post, as well as my works in progress so stay tuned!!

Make it a Beautiful Day!
