One Giant Granny Square Blanket Crochet Project

One Giant Granny Square Blanket Crochet Project

One Giant Granny Square Blanket Crochet Project

I couldn’t remember where I first stumbled across this pattern idea years ago but it’s been a fall back pattern for me to do for gifts when I want to mindlessly crochet something. It’s surprising how fast these work up too.  Basically the whole blanket is just one easy giant granny square so no sewing together pieces, squares or motifs. That’s a giant check in the plus side for me. I really do hate sewing pieces together. I try to avoid if it at all possible. lol Seriously I do.

Well since I couldn’t remember the exact site I found it on here is the pattern on one site that I did find for this project. Check out the Giant, Giant Granny Square Blanket crochet pattern at  Purl Bee to whip up your own.

  Baby Girl Sweet Monster Crochet Project Stuffed Doll

 When I found out that one of my new nieces loved the monster doll I made for my oldest nephew so much she  kind of kidnapped him I knew I needed to making a special monster doll just for her.  Sadly I didn’t write down the pattern or notes as I worked on it. It was during last minutes holiday gift crunch time when I managed to put her together. Oops.  I may try my hand at redoing her again in the near future to get a pattern for some of the other cute little girls in my family. :)

Bath Time Alligator Hand Puppet Washcloth Crochet Project

Bath Time Alligator Hand Puppet Washcloth Crochet Project

  Bath Time Alligator Hand Puppet Washcloth Crochet Project

This project was completed using a pattern from an external source. It is free crochet pattern to visitors over at favecrafts.com titled “Bath Friends Puppets” which I followed for the most part… I was over half way done when I noticed all the pieces it wanted me to make separate and sew together when done. I *hate* sewing things together with a passion  which is why I have so many in progress or almost finished projects laying about.. So I ended up playing around with the pattern for a bit and came up with this poor looking guy.  Apparently he was quite a hit with my nephew so mission accomplished I suppose.

Okay so he has grown on me a little bit…

Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10) Double Crochet Beanie Pattern

Are you looking for an easy peasy beanie to whip up for a child?  Then this pattern is for you! It doesn’t get much easier than this and this pattern is set to fit a child from age 3 to 10 years old.  Since this crochet pattern is done in Double Crochet instead of half double or single crochet like others it builds up rather quickly.  I use the Easy Peasy Beanie Crochet Pattern family sizes for the majority of my hats as a base to build on or embellish.  Are you looking for this in another size? Check out the whole family of sizes in the free Easy Peasy Double Crochet Beanie pattern page here at cRAfterchick.com.

Project requires:
Medium to normal weight yarn (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use baby yarn for extra soft beanie hats too!)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern (US crochet stitches):
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet (US)

Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10) Free Double Crochet Beanie Hat Base Pattern (Based on standard US sizing, this pattern is made to fit most three to ten year old children)

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic circle ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 (does not count as a dc throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) before placing 12 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Join with sl st in the top of beginning st. (12 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before making 2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in each of the following 11 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (24 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next st.* Repeating * pattern for next 22 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1 st st. (36 dc)
Round 4: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 2 st. Repeating * pattern for next 33 st around.  Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (48 dc)
Round 5 -11: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the remaining 47 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (48 dc)
Round 12: Ch 1 before making 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the remaining 47 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (48 sc)

Cut yarn leaving a short tail to finish off the project. Pull tail through and weave in ends with your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle before cutting off any extra length left behind to fasten off hat.

All done!

Want a trim or contrast color?You can easily add a contrast trim by adding an additional round of sc to end of hat in new yarn color or for a wider trim, subtract one dc round from Round 5-11 then add that to the end after in between sc rows in contrast color.

The sky is the limit on possibilities or ideas to make each your own, unique and special from stripes to adding features or appliques etc.  Drop by our free pattern section to find some of cRAfterChick’s ideas to make your project extra fun or special.
