CrochetThread —  Flower or Doily

by Ann Reillet


This pattern features a few less common crochet techniques. The flower, which can be made as an insertion commences with an Irish Crochet padded circle and finishes with a round of Venetian Crochet. 

The flower is made in 5 rnds measuring 2 1/2”. The doily continues 9 more rnds measuring 6 1/2” but one could venture onward to create something truly unique. Pehaps, adding a trellis netting or various stitches to increase the size.

FREE Pattern. Enjoy!

Crochet Tutorial: The Pizzazz Poncho

YARNutopia by Nadia Fuad

Do you have a lot of scrap yarn? I am overrun by baskets of scraps left over from previous projects, and I often try to find fun and useful projects to use them.  When you wear this, it will make you spin, dance, and walk with spring in your step, because it is *that* much fun to wear! Here are a few photos of my poncho and how I wore it. I matched it with jeggings and riders with a man’s denim shirt and a matching headscarf.

Pizzazz Poncho
Comfortable and cozy, I am ready to go out on the town for the day! Bold! Colorful! Wild! The Pizzazz Poncho is all that and a bag of chips!!! I made this creation inspired by a photo I saw made by another crochet artist, but I added a bit of my own artistic spin!
Pizzazz Poncho
This Pizzazz Poncho is the perfect project to make good use…

Hello crochet lion,

I’m interrupting my series on How to Design Crochet Patterns to bring you my latest project.  Don’t worry though, I’ll be continuing this next time, I just thought it was time for a new crochet pattern!

Pacific Rim Crochet Shawl - free pattern from Make My Day Creative Pacific Rim Crochet Shawl – free pattern from Make My Day Creative

Following working on my Atlantic Lace Shawl I thought it would be fun to work on some more ocean themed shawls, and when I saw this pretty variegated yarn from Hand Dyed by Kate I knew I had to have it for this project.  The colourway is called “Mermaids” and it’s a sock weight (4ply) yarn made from merino, silk and yak.  Yes yak! This is my first time trying yak fibre and it’s lovely!

Horizon Shawl - Textured Crochet Pattern by Make My Day Creative Horizon Shawl – Textured Crochet Pattern by Make My Day Creative

I’ve had this one under wraps (haha) for ages and ages, so it’s great to finally be able to share it with you!

I was commissioned by Yarnbox to design for their October 2016 yarn collection, which was a lovely way for me to be able to try this yarn.

I have not worked much with mohair, because it tends to be one of the fibres I react to.  Fortunately not only was this blend lovely to work with, I didn’t have a skin reaction to it either.  Sometimes when we react to yarns it can be more about the treatment/processing of the yarn (or the quality of it) so it is important to give fibres a chance sometimes if you are someone who can be irritated by them.  Wool is such a great fibre in terms of its…
