Hi Friends! I’m so happy to introduce you to the Marley Tote Bag free crochet pattern!
I wanted to design a crochet bag that felt a bit more sturdy. So I used two strands of yarn held together to make the bag stronger and create a pretty marled effect.
My first design was for the short handles because, let’s face it, crochet bag handles tend to stretch out over time. So the short handle option puts less stress on the stitches and distributes the weight a bit more.
But then sometimes, you need the convenience of a long strap to sling over your shoulder. That’s why I created a long handle option. The adjustment between the two patterns is very small, but it makes a big difference! See the free pattern below to find out how I did it.
Today I’m thrilled to introduce an easy shawlette free crochet pattern for you, The Cirra Shawlette!
This textured shawlette is the perfect layering piece for cooler months. I designed this shawlette in late winter when clouds were grey and I was dreaming of spring sunshine. So the color transitions from shades of grey to bright yellow are sort of symbolic for me.
I have a fun new baby sweater pattern to share with you today! The Rylan cardigan is the cutest new crochet pattern for boys and girls 3 months to 6 years.
I wanted to design a sweater that could be your go-to pattern for baby showers, birthdays, any type of gift giving, really! I love it on girls and boys, it has a great structure to it and is perfect for any season.
I also made a full length video tutorial for you! If you are just learning how to crochet and have made a few other projects, I think this sweater would be a great next step for you. It is really pretty simple and straightforward. Plus, it’s a baby sweater, so it goes pretty quickly!
I wanted to create a sweater that made a bold statement and was a lot of fun to wear. And, I have to say, this one certainly fits the bill!
Crocheting bobbles is one of my favorite things…and I knew I wanted to go big with them. I’ve been seeing them around a lot lately and I really like the feminine yet playful look they provide.
The Hartley crochet pattern has a circular yoke, which you may have guessed is one of my favorite design techniques. You can try it on as you go and easily adjust sizing for the perfect fit.
Maybe the best part this sweater is the super bulky yarn. Combine that with the shorter length and you might be able to make this sweater in a weekend. Bring on the movies and hot chocolate! (Doesn’t that sound like the perfect winter weekend?)
The pattern has 5 sizes from women’s XS to 4X and comes with links to 6 videos to help you along the way. So a confident beginner could definitely rock this sweater.
I hope you enjoy and share your makes with me, I love to see them! @tealandfinch
