My daughters absolutely love velvet yarn. And who can blame them? It’s the softest, cozyiest, squishiest yarn imaginable. So it’s natural that I would want to crochet a sweater for them from this soft yarn.

The benefit to this yarn is that it’s a chunky yarn, weight 5. So this is a fairly quick project, perfect for last minute gifts. Well, last minute as far as crocheting a sweater by hand can get. But you know what I mean!

I designed the Easton Pullover in seven sizes: 3M, 12M, 2T, 4, 6, 8, and 10. That way you can make one for every child on your gift list! The pattern is simple so you can play with colors on this one. Follow my traditional stripe patterns or create your own. Use your imagination and have fun!

This velvet sweater is a drop shoulder design with a little bit of armhole shaping to reduce bulk in the underarm area. It is composed of a front and back piece and trapezoid shaped sleeves. The sleeve increases are very simple, great for beginners.

This sweater has a unique construction that is great for beginners as well as more experienced crocheters. Best of all, it’s fun and interesting to make! It is worked in vertical rows from side to side, beginning with one sleeve, working across the body and finishing with the other sleeve. No increases or decreases, just chaining!

The bobbles add a lot of texture to this sweater, but of course, you could leave them out to create a different look. Just replace them with hdc’s. But, really, why would you want to leave out the fun? (ha!)

Marley tote bag crochet pattern

Marley Tote Bag Free Crochet Pattern

Hi Friends! I’m so happy to introduce you to the Marley Tote Bag free crochet pattern!

The Marley tote bag is a free crochet pattern with two handle options.

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.
