  • Emilio the Armadillo Free Crochet Pattern

    Hello my fellow crocheters! Here we are we our last free project of the year. Extremely easy to work, Emilio the Armadillo can make a super cute Christmas gift for your little one! ...and if you are wondering what's special about this creature, here are some interesting facts: armadillos have armored bodies and are able to curl up into tight balls to defend themselves from predators; armadillo are fast diggers with pointy snouts and long sticky tongues that allow them to search for insects underground; armadillos are, for the majority, solitary animals; armadillos also like to sleep—a lot; they are often found sleeping for 16 hours a day. Emilio the Armadillo is worked in 8 separate pieces: Body (from tail to nose), Shell, 2 Ears, 4 Legs. This project is worked with Heartland® yarn by LION BRAND YARN!

(35.5 x 35.5 cm) pillow form 12-14 in. (30-36 cm) zipper Sewing needle and thread GAUGE 8 (chain 3, 3 dc) squares = about 4 in. (10 cm). ABBREVIATIONS beg = begin(ning) ch = chain ch-sp(s) = chains space(s) previously made dc = double crochet rep = repeat RS = right side sc = single crochet sl st = slip st st(s) = stitch(es) WS = wrong side Disclosure. Most blog posts on this website contain affiliate links. This means I get a small commission if you click-through & purchase (no additional cost to you). TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION Corner to Corner (C2C) C2C The Corner-to-Corner (C2C) technique of crocheting is made by starting in one corner of a Chart (typically the lower right corner) and following the Chart row by row diagonally to the other corner (typically the top left corner). How to work your C2C Pillow Cover Row 1: Starting in the lower right corner of the Chart. Chain 6. DC in 4th chain from hook. DC in last two chains. You now have a chain-3 space and a total of 3 DC stitches. This completes your first square and Row 1. Row 2: Chain 6. DC in 4th chain from hook. DC in last two chains. Turn your work. At this point turning consists of just flipping over the first square. Slip stitch in the chain-3 space of the first square. Chain 3. Make 3 DC in the same chain-3 space. This completes your second two squares and Row 2. Increase Rows You will start each row by chaining 6, making a DC in the 4th chain from hook and then a DC in each of the remaining 2 chains, turn, and continue making squares (Slip stitch in chain-3 space then chain 3 and work 3 DC in the same chain-3 space). Decrease Rows At the beginning of each row, turn your work and slip stitch across the 3 DC’s of the last square made. Slip stitch in the chain-3 space then chain 3 and work 3 DC in the same chain-3 space. At the end of the row, end with a slip stitch in the last chain-3 space, do not work chain 3 and 3 DC in that last chain-3 space. How to Change Yarn Colors To attach a new color you will pull the new color yarn through as you make your slip stitch in the chain-3 space. Do not fasten off the old color. Leave the strand hanging and still attached to the ball. Keep the balls not being used on the wrong side of your work. You can easily carry your yarn strand up from the previous row. Take the yarn strand and pull it up to your hook when you need to join that color back into your project. Back Work in C2C technique. Increase Section Row 1 (RS): With A, ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 2 ch – you will have 1 square in this row. Row 2: Ch 6, turn, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 2 ch, (sl st, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch-3 sp – 2 squares. Row 3: Ch 6, turn, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 2 ch, (sl st, ch 3, 3 dc) in each ch-3 sp across – 3 squares. Rows 4-29: Rep Row 3 for 26 more times, increasing 1 square in each row – you will have 29 squares in Row 29. Decrease Section Row 30: Sl st in each dc across to first ch-3 sp, (sl st, ch 3, 3 dc) in each ch-3 sp to last ch-3 sp, sl st in last ch-3 sp (do not work ch 3, 3 dc in last ch-3 sp) – 28 squares. Rows 31-57: Rep Row 30 for 27 more times, decreasing 1 square in each row – you will have 1 square remaining in Row 57. Fasten off. Edging From RS, draw up a loop of E anywhere in outer edge of Back, ch 1, sc evenly spaced all the way around outer edge, working 3 sc in each corner. Note: For best results count the number of sc you work along one side edge and work the same number of sc along each of the remaining 3 edges. Fasten off. Edging From RS, draw up a loop of E anywhere in outer edge of Back, ch 1, sc evenly spaced all the way around outer edge, working 3 sc in each corner. Note: For best results count the number of sc you work along one side edge and work the same number of sc along each of the remaining 3 edges. Fasten off. Front Work in C2C technique, changing yarn color following Chart, until all 57 rows have been completed. Edging Work same as Back edging. Finishing With sewing needle and thread, sew the sides of zipper to WS of upper edges of Front and Back. Hold Front and Back with WS together and sts matching. Working through both thicknesses, draw up a loop of E in a top corner so that you are ready to work down a side edge, sl st in each st along the 3 remaining open sides. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

  • Nautical Cushion Cover Free Crochet Pattern

    Happy Tuesday my fellow crafters! Summer is finally approaching and it's about time for all of us to make our home ready for it! A fresh cotton yarn in the typical nautical colors - blue and white - makes this pillow the perfect summer decoration for your bed or couch! The front of the cushion cover is worked with the C2C crochet technique, while the back panels are worked with half double crochet stitches. A beautiful wooden button gives a nice final touch to this gorgeous project! The Nautical Cushion Cover is made with 24/7 Cotton® yarn by LION BRAND YARN! This is a mercerized 100% natural fiber yarn - the incredible color variety and the beautiful sheer make this fiber just perfect to work accessories and home decor! ***You can purchase a downloadable AD-FREE PDF of the pattern with more than 60 step-by-step pictures, schematics and tips to guide you through the making process on Etsy HERE ! Here is the Nautical Cushion Cover FREE pattern! YARN: Lion Brand® 24/7 COTTON® (Art. # 761) #110 Navy 2 balls (A) #100 White 2 balls (B) ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Lion Brand® crochet hook size F (3.75 mm); Wooden Button 7/8 in diameter SIZE: About 13 X 13 in. (33 x 33 cm) ABBREVIATIONS: beg = begin(ninig) ch = chain hdc = half double crochet dc = double crochet rep = repeat rnd(s) = round(s) sc = single crochet sl st = slip stitch st(s) = stitch(es) sk = skip SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate Disclosure. Most blog posts on this website contain affiliate links. This means I get a small commission if you click-through & purchase (no additional cost to you). C2C TECHNIQUE EXPLANATIONS Step 1: Chain 6. Dc in the 4th chain from the hook. Dc in each of the two remaining chains. At this point, you’ll have a small block comprised of the ch-3 turning chain and 3 dc stitches. Step 2: Turn your work. Row 2 is a WS (wrong side) row and has two tiles. We’ll start Row 2 by increasing one tile. Chain 6. Dc in the 4th chain from the hook. Dc in each of the two remaining chains. This completes the first tile of the second row. Now, we’ll need to join this tile to the first tile we made. Find the ch-3-space created by the turning-ch-3 on the first tile. Slip stitch into the ch-3-sp from the previous row. Then, make the next tile. Chain 3. Make 3 dc into that same ch-3-sp. Step 3: Work Row 3 in the same way that you worked Row 2. Row 3 is a RS (right side) row and has 3 tiles. You’ll start by making a C2C increase. DECREASING First Decrease Row: Instead of chaining 6 to make a new tile, we’ll slip stitch across the last tile in the previous row. The slip stitches will move our yarn across the tile without adding height. Then, we’ll chain 3 and work the next tile. Slip stitch in each dc across, and slipstitch into the ch-3-space. Chain 3 and work 3 dc into the ch-3-sp of the previous row. (This completes the first tile of this row.) Repeat this pattern across the row.

  • Thiago the Parrot Free Crochet Pattern

    I know my friends, it's only Tuesday, and the way to the weekend seems still too long... ...but don't worry, I've designed something for you that I'm sure is going to brighten up your day - here's my cute THIAGO the PARROT!! With its bright colors and his big smiling eyes, this crocheted Parrot is just too fun not to make, don't you think? No to mention the size of the finished amigurumi...just perfect for your kids to play with or just hug and cuddle! Unlike most of the designs I share here on my blog, this project is most suitable for INTERMEDIATE crocheters. The Beak and the Feet sections especially are a bit more complex to make. So, if you are a new-by or feel visual help is needed, I strongly suggest you to head over my Etsy page to get the complete version of the pattern!!! Thiago is worked with the gorgeous and super soft Lion Brand Pound of Love.
