10 Free Crochet Patterns for Crafters and Crocheters

I make a lot of things. Sometimes I like to make things to help me make things-- pincushions, stitch markers, etc. With that in mind, I've put together a roundup of patterns specifically for crafters and crocheters. 

Pin HERE for later. 

1. Zinnia Stitch Markers by Allison Weaver on Ravelry. Stitch markers are one of those things I use all the time. Why not make them cute as well as functional? Use a lobster clasp to make these crochet-friendly. 

2. Ammonite Crochet Hook Roll by Dedri Uys on Look at What I Made. There are loads of hook cases out there but this one is particularly stunning. Bonus: It comes with both photo and video tutorials. 

3. Tape Measure Cover by Catherine Waterfield on Ravelry. I love the tassel on the end and the gold-and-turquoise combination is a favorite of mine. But this is sure to be pretty in whatever colors you choose. 

4. Nifty Needle Case by Tamara Kelly on Moogly. Let's face it: You need a space to hold all those needles and stitch markers so might as well make it cute. 

5. Cupcake Pincushions by yours truly on Stuck with Ewe. I might be a little biased towards this pattern. But how could I not? It's both adorable and functional. 

6. Tower of Babel Hook Stand by Eleanor Howe on Ravelry. A very quirky piece for displaying your hooks while keeping them out of your way and neatly put away. 

7. Cupcake Pincushion Sewing Kit by ChiWei on One Dog Woof. It's so perfect for gifting! If you're not that into sewing, fill the mason jar with crochet/knitting notions and gift it that way. 

8. Stand and Work Yarn Holder Bag on Pookie Doodle Crafts. This is for those of you who (like me) believe every day is Crochet in Public Day. I need one of these. 

9. Easy Beaded Coin Purse on Holy Rollin' Hooker. Crafters have a lot of bits and bobbles and never enough places to put them. Whip up this adorable coin purse to hold your odds and ends. 

10. M&M Crochet Hook Case by Maggie McGhee on Live to Create and Crochet. This is for those of you who prefer a hard-sided hook case. All you need is an empty (but clean) M&M's tube, some yarn and a button. 

That's all for this post. I hope you've found some lovely new makes. Check out Stuck with Ewe on Facebook to keep up-to-date on patterns and more.

Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Scrubbie

I haven't posted anything in a long time but I'm finally back with a simple flower scrubbie. It's a mere three rounds, requires little counting, and takes about ten minutes to make. You can make a bunch in a single sitting, making them perfect for Croflixing (Crochet+Netflix). They're also versatile-- I've been using mine as face scrubbies but they would be just as good in the kitchen. 

I included some round-by-round photos to help with construction. It's such an easy, straightforward pattern it probably doesn't need a photo tutorial but now it's got one anyway. I've been working on better photos and hope to eventually take good photos myself.  I don't know if I'm improved much but I certainly have been having fun. 

But enough about photos. Let get right into the pattern.

(Some of) My Favorite Crochet Bloggers

Pin HERE or with the image above. 

This was a difficult list to compile. I have so many crochet bloggers who have inspired me and am always adding new ones to the list. If I were to name all of them, it would take me days. With that in mind, I decided to tell you about eight of them, in no particular order. Now we can ooh and awe and pin all their patterns together.

1. Tamara Kelly of Moogly. Tamara releases a new pattern almost every week, complete with left and right-hand video tutorials and charts. She covers almost everything crochet and organizes a yearlong CAL running for its 5th year in a row. She's a super crochet lady for sure. 

2. Sarah Zimmerman of Repeat Crafter Me. Sarah has a unique way of writing patterns that just makes them so much easier to understand. She has lots of patterns, particularly colorwork ones, all of which are lovely. Always well written, always beautiful, and often with video/photo tutorials.

Abigail Flip-flop Doll ~ Free Crochet Pattern

I wanted to make something for my younger sister's birthday but didn't stop to think about the particulars until less than two days before. I needed something quick that required minimal stuffing. Enter Abigail.

She's no ordinary doll. Flip her dress over her head and you have a tulip-like flower. Flip the flower part back down over the stem and she's a pretty princess again. Neat, right?

Despite her cool turns-into-a-flower trick, the construction isn't all that difficult.  Both her head and dress are made in one piece, with some back loops only definition at the waist. The arms, flower stem, and leaf are made separately and stitched on afterward. Her hair is made by making a pink cap with two small pompoms stitched to it and then the whole thing is sewn to the head. If you'd rather buy pompoms than make them, that's fine too.(I owe a special thank-you to my brother Jack for once again working his pompom wizardry. I suffer from an inability to make pompoms s…
