Teacher Apple Coasters Crochet Pattern

I am very proud of my mother for going back to school a few years ago and getting her teaching degree.  I wanted to give her something useful that worked as a mention to her being a teacher.  So I thought apples for the teacher.   This is a pretty basic crochet pattern that even a beginner to the world of crochet can try out.  I hope you like them 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:

ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch

hdc – half double crochet

Pattern Instructions:

Here is closeup of a coaster to get a better look before starting. Here we go.

Teacher Apple Coasters Crochet Pattern

Red Apple Coaster:

Round 1: In Magic Ring, ch 2 (does not count as a dc throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) then 10 dc in ring. Tighten ring. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2. *2 dc in first and following 9 st. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2. *2 dc in next st. Dc in next st. Repeat from * around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (30 dc)

Round 4: Ch 1. 2 sc in first, *1 sc in next 2 st and 2 sc in following st. Repeat from * around.  Join with sl st to top of beginning st.  Join to top of first st.  (40 sc)

Cut yarn, pull through and finish off red apple part of coaster.

Apple Stem:

With Brown Yarn, attach to apple with a sl st where you want the stem to go.

Chain 7. Place a sc in the third ch from hook and each of the following 4 ch. Sl st back into the apple coaster where you started chain.

Cut your yarn, pull through and finish off the apple stem.

Green leaf on stem:

With Green yarn for the apple’s stem, chain 7. Sc in third ch from hook, hdc in next, dc in next, hdc in following and sc in last ch. Sl st into same stitch turning your forming leaf clockwise so you are now working on the unworked side of chain. Ch 1, hdc in next st, dc in next, hdc in following, sc into last st and connect to first st with a sl st.   Leave a long enough tail when cutting yarn to be able secure it into place on the stem.    Use the tail and large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the leaf into place. I found it works best to secure into top as apple as well as stem.  Pull yarn through to back off project before finishing off.

There you go.  You can whip up a whole set for the special teacher or teachers in your life.  They make cute and thoughtful gifts without breaking the bank or tons of time.

Round 1:  Starting with a foundation chain of 9 ch,  make 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the 6 st and 2 sc in last st of chain. (10 sc)  Turning so you are working on back side of foundation chain to create more of  a circle, work 2 sc in first ch, sc in each ch until last st, place 2 sc in last st.  Sl st to top of first st.

Pull yarn through leaving enough tail to sew on face to secure to doll later when cutting. Put Ninja face area to side until needed.

Eyes:

Using black yarn and leaving a bit of a tail for sewing eye in place when done, chain 4. Pull yarn through and cut yarn. Using large blunt eye needle, sew eye into position you want it to be in. I sometimes pin my in place to make sure I have them even or it drives me nuts.  Finish off yarn from eyes behind face, and put face to side until needed for ninja doll.

You can choose to put the eyes in all kinds of positions like:   \ / or / \ or _ _  or even > < with small v’s instead of eye strip used above.

Ninja Doll Body:

6: Ch 1, 2 sc in first st, *1 sc in next 4 st and 2 sc in following st. Continue * around round. Sl st to top of first st. (36 sc)
7-22: Ch 1, 1 sc in each st around.  Sl st to top of first st. (36 sc)
Note:About half way through these rounds you will want to stop to attach the face to the front of the ninja doll and the two arms so you can hide seams inside of doll before starting to stuff as you progress.
23: Ch 1, sctog first two st. *1 sc in the next 3 st, sctog next two st. Continue * around. Sl st to top of first st. (24 sc)
24:Ch 1, sctog first two st. *1 sc in the next 2 st, sctog next two st. Continue * around. Sl st to top of first st. (18 sc)
25:Ch 1, sctog first two st. *1 sc in the next 1 st, sctog next two st. Continue * around. Sl st to top of first st. (12 sc)
This is a good time to put the legs on before closing two rounds. By placing them facing forward and more to sides it allows the doll to sit up when not being cuddled.  Make sure you fill up the Ninja Doll to the size, squeezability you desire with your fiberfill stuffing. I prefer mine not to hard stuffed but strong enough to hold shape and some weight to them.
Round 26: Ch 1, sctog first two st, sctog next two st continuing sctog around. Sl st to top of first st. (6 sc)
27: Ch 1, sctog first two st, sctog next two st continuing sctog around. (3 sc)
Pull yarn through, sew opening closed with large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle and finish off. Double check your Ninja Doll for any loose ends you might of missed before and weave them in before finishing off the piece. Done :)

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern

I hate crochet patterns that make me sit and read them line by line while I crochet (normally scratching my head). I like simple and quick patterns that I can do while listening to an audiobook or watching a show so I made up these stockings without a pattern just winging it. I ended up liking it so much I not only wrote down the pattern but whipped up two matching ones for my other two nephews as well. I chose single crochet so the little stocking stuffers wouldn’t fall out between larger stitches. I hope you like this as well.

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Red yarn for main color-  (I use a lot of Red Heart saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
White yarn or Contrast color of your choice for trim /accents
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

Round 35: Sc in each of the 30 st across from previous row. (30 sc)
Round 36: Fold stocking in half. You should see stocking shape now. Ch 1 and turn working 1 sc into each matching stitch all the way around stocking until last 5 st at back of foot heel.
Sctog twice and slip stitch into final matching stitch. (This will give the heel a rounded appearance similar to toe.
Pull yarn through and fasten off.

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern  free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com 2 Cuff (Contrast / Trim) top part:

With Contrast / Trim color, attach to last stitch from row 35 on top of sock part of stocking with sl st. This will be worked in round. Don’t turn stocking right side out until instructions as you want the nice side of the stitches to show when you fold it over top once you are finished.

Round 1 : Chain 1 and sc in each st around top circle. Sl st to top of 1st sc. Ch 1.(30 sc)
Round 2 – 7 : Sc in first st and all around to joining. Sl st to top of 1st sc. Ch 1. (30 sc)
Round 8: Sc in first st and all around to joining. (30 sc)
Pull yarn through with extra tail to finish off and weave through with your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle. Tie off and weave any loose ends left to finish it off. Turn stocking right side out so seams are on inside.
Now fold down the top Contrast / Trim part. Voila. There is your stocking.

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern  free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com 3 For a variety in my stockings I used a different trim for each of my nephews. One is white, another dark green and the last stripes of both colors (which I did by switching colors every two rounds). It helped make each their own.

Are you looking to embellish your stocking? You can easily add crocheted holly, one of the designs I used for the Christmas ornaments crochet patterns or like I did with a simple letter to show which child it is for under the tree :)

Candy Cane Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

White yarn for main color-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
Red yarn for accents
“H” hook  (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in our patterns:

ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet
sctog – single crochet two stitches together

White Candy Cane Base:

Round 1: Using white yarn, Chain 17 and turn. Sc in second chain from hook then sc in next 7 ch, sctog next two ch together and repeat sctog to end of chain. (12 sc)

Round 2:  Turn project so that you are now working in back loops of foundation chain. 2 sc into same stitch just worked to round cane tip. Sc in next st, 2 sc into next 8 st, sc in last 9 st.

Pull yarn through and weave until top of Candy cane hook. Leave a long tail and use extra length to tie on to top of candy cane to secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.

(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. :) I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. )

Red piping on Candy Cane:

For this part I simply started off with a length of red yarn. I cut roughly the distance around the cane times three to make sure I have enough, mostly because I hate tying in ends with the arthritis in my hands so I try to have as little of them as possible. 😉

Secure the red yarn to the bottom of the Candy Cane ornament where you want the red piping to start. I then just sewed the red yarn across in slanted position (see picture above) with my yarn needle, securing it in place by looping twice through each end where I wanted it to stay.

Pull extra yarn through and finish off.

(Note: If you want a thicker banded candy cane piping try making a chain stitch length and weaving it into place with an extra long tail.)

That’s it.  It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.

Christmas Tree Ornament Crochet Pattern - free crochet pattern  free holiday gift idea

Project requires:

Green yarn for main color of tree-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
Red yarn for ornament accents
Yellow or gold yarn for tree topper accent
“H” hook  (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in our patterns:

ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet

Main tree part using main color green yarn:

Note: Leave short length at top of tree (starting point) to help secure on tree topper.

Round 1: Chain 2. 2 sc into the 2nd ch from hook. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)

Round 2: 2 sc in both sc from previous row. Ch 1 and turn. (4 sc)

Round 3: 2 sc in first sc and 1 sc in each of remaining sc. Ch 1 and turn. (5 sc)

Round 4-8: Repeat process in round 3 increasing each row by 1 sc until you reached your desired length / size. (I finished with 8 rows which ended up with 10 sc across before last round) Ch 1 and turn. (10 sc)

Round 9 (or final row if you add additional rows to make Christmas tree ornament in a larger size): Sc in each sc across. (10 sc)

Pull yarn through and finish off.

If you like a more finished look to the ornament’s border like I did, before fastening off yarn, Ch 1 then sl st in each stitch all the way around the hat to give it a nice outline. Sl st in to first st. Fasten off.

Note: You can adjust the size and length easily. If you want a wider base for a much larger decoration, start of with 4 chains in round 1 and increase each round as instructions. If you just want a longer tree than in pattern, just continue to add rows like row 3, increasing 1 sc per row until desired length.

Tree topper with yellow / gold yarn:

I just wanted a simple ball on top of my tree but you can go fancy and make a mini star or an angel. I was also feeling a little bit lazy so I didn’t feel like weaving in more colors or getting too detailed.

In magic circle, ch 1 and make 4 sc into circle.
Pull yarn through and use extra length to tie on to top of hat and secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.

(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. :) I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. You can also change yarn colors for this step if you want to have a contrasting color.)

Crochet Santa Hat Christmas Ornament Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Red yarn for main color-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
White yarn for accents
“H” hook  (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in our patterns:

ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet

Red hat Main Part:

Round 1: Chain 2. 2 sc into the 2nd ch from hook. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in both sc from previous row. Ch 1 and turn. (4sc)
Round 3: 2 sc in first sc and 1 sc in each of remaining sc. Ch 1 and turn. (5 sc)
Round 4- 8: Repeat process from round 3 increasing each row by 1 sc in first st until you reached your desired length / size.
(I finished with 8 rows which ended up with 8 sc across before last round) Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc)
Round 9: Sc in each sc across. (8 sc) Finish off or if you like a more finished look like me, slip stitch in each stitch all the way around the hat to give it a nice outline.

Note: You can adjust the size and length easily. If you want a wider base for a much larger decoration, start of with 4 chains in round 1 and increase each round as instructions. If you just want a longer hat than in pattern, just continue to add rows like row 3, increasing 1 sc per row until desired length.

Bottom white trim on hat:

Attach white yarn to end of final row of completed red hat part (see Round 9 above) with a slip stitch.
Round 1: Ch 1. Sc in first st and each st across from final row on red hat part. Slip stitch into last sc as well. Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc for mine)
Round 2: 3 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each sc across until last sc, which you will put 3 sc. (12 sc) Slip stitch in last st.
Pull yarn through and fasten off yarn.

Top white pom pom for hat:

Round 1: In a magic circle, chain 1 before making 6 sc in circle. Sl st to top of first sc st. (6 sc)
Pull yarn through and use extra tail length to tie on to top of hat and blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.

(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. :) I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. )

That’s it.  It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.

Green Christmas Present Ornament Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Green yarn for main color-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
Red yarn for accents
“H” hook  (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in our patterns:

ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet

Green Present Base (Main color):

 Using main yarn color for this project (green)

Round 1: Chain 9. Put 1 Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc)

Round 2-7: Work 1 sc into each sc across. Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc). (or continue until desired length)

Round 8:  Work 1 sc into each sc across. (8 sc) Pull yarn through and fasten off.

Finish off or if you like a more finished look like me, slip stitch in each stitch all the way around the hat to give it a nice outline.

Note: I always try for a perfect square so I will fold from corner to opposite corner to see if it is a perfect square before finishing off.  For mine it worked out to be 8 rounds total.

Red trim and accents on Green Present Ornament:

Using Red yarn (Accent color) make a chain of 9.
Pull yarn through and leave extra length to tie on to top of present and secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.
Make a total of 2 chains following above.

(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. :) I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. )

Finishing off ornament:

Using a Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle I fixed the “ribbon” parts on to the present in a crossed position like in picture, securing it by weaving through from end to the other of Green present in place.
I then used a scarp of red yarn to bring through piece around top piece of red present embellishment, tied a double knot then finished it in a standard shoelace kind of bow.

That’s it.  It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.
