Crochet Easter Celebration Tulip and Cross Coffee Cozies

When my hubs and I were dating, one of our first dates happened on Easter. He had planned to pick me up and go to the Easter service at his church… and what do you think my love showed up with?! Starbucks of course! So I felt it was only right that my free Easter Celebration Pattern be not 1 but 2 fun and festive coffee cozies! Maybe one for you and one for your loved one! :) 

I decided to release this pattern on Good Friday in remembrance of the debt that Christ paid for us. Naturally, that is what the cross in the cozy represents. I’ve also added some springtime tulips, cuz they’re my favorite flower. Interestingly enough, the tulip represents love, and the purple tulip represents royal love... so I felt that these gorgeous purple tulips would be perfect for celebrating Easter! :) 


Hope you enjoy!

Crochet Lacy Thigh High Leggings

These adorable Lacy Thigh High Leggings were inspired by my girls of course. :) When Maddy first tried them on she said, "Oh mommy these are so soft and warm!" and of course it was her idea to add the flowers. In fact I think her exact words were, "Ok, now I want flowers, flowers, flowers! Here, and here, and here, and all over!" Thankfully she was satisfied with just two :)

Crochet Twisted Turban Slouchy Hat

I had so much fun creating this Twisted Turban Slouchy Hat! I absolutely love slouchy hats, so I just had to come up with a pattern of my own! The original inspiration for this design came from an order I had for a Chunky Twisted Ribbed Earwarmer. I took the initial design from my earwarmer, and elaborated it into an adorable slouchy hat! Hope you enjoy! :)
Emily wanted to model it for me too! :)

Crochet Monster Pants

I was so excited to hear that my SIL was having a little boy, that I knew I had to make him something adorable! After searching through Pinterest for hours, I decided on some funny little monster pants! I could not, however, find the perfect pattern for them... so I decided to make my own. Fast Forward a year, and I had several orders for monster pants in various sizes. So, I decided to figure out every size and publish a pattern. :)

Crochet Boo Hooded Cowl

I had the privilege of making this adorable Boo Hooded Cowl for a little girl from my church to wear on Halloween. Her mom and I looked at several photos online, and I finally decided to come up with my own rendition. Her costume was a hit, and her dad says she still wears it all the time! That's what I love to hear :)

Maddy had fun modeling it for me :)

Crochet Grover Hat

This darling little Grover Hat is now available for free in my Ravelry store! (Find it HERE)

I'm mainly excited to share this pattern with you, because it is the first time I'm sharing my seamless method! Let me just say that I have tried so many "seamless" methods, and I really do think that this one (mine!) is the best! :P And my amazing testers think so as well! So it's not jut me :P 

You'll be starting out with a Chainless Standing Double Crochet and DC in the first spot, then when you come back around, you'll be skipping over those two stitches and slip stitching in the 2nd dc. As long as you remember this, it's really a simple hat! And your finished product with have virtually no seam! :)

I've also added pretty much every size! My sizing is based on my experience with sizing over my years of crocheting. Feel free to measure the circumference of your circle when you've finished your increase rounds to make sure it will fit the size of your recipient.  

I hope you all enjoy, and I'd love to hear your thoughts on my new method! :)

Crochet Grover Hat
What you’ll need:
       * Size H and F hook                                                                       

       * I love this yarn in blue, pink, white, and black
       * Crochet needle for sewing in ends
       * Tiny bit of stuffing for the nose

Gauge: with H hook, 6dc and 4 rows= 2”x 2”

Abbreviations:
       *ch- chain
       *sc- single crochet
       *slst- slip stitch
       *sc dec- single crochet decrease
       *dc- double crochet
       *CSDC- chainless starting double crochet

Note: I’ve omitted the chains at the begging of the rounds to get rid of the seam. I’ve added the chainless starting double crochet instead. The CSDC of each round will act like your chain and will be hidden in your work and not crocheted into. Make sure you place your last dc in the same stitch you placed your CSDC, and slst to the 1st dc of the round. You’ll be skipping over the CSDC when you slst to join.  (See pics below)

CSDC, DC in same stitch
Place your last dc in same stitch as you did your CSDC

Slst to 1st dc to join (you'll be skipping over your CSDC)
