Free Pattern (After) Friday: A New Hook Case.

I had a tragedy happen a few weeks ago. My hook case busted open and wouldn’t close completely anymore. 

Made from a wipe container, I think it served its time.

I decided I wanted to crochet one. After scouring the Internet, I couldn’t find a pattern for one that I really liked. So I used this one as a jumping off point and made some adjustments. I hope you enjoy!

As always, you are free to do as you please with items made from this pattern. Just don't sell or reproduce this pattern as your own. Please link back to this blog when sharing the pattern.

Here we go!
 
I just love how much it looks like a book!

Accessory Pocket

Row 7: SC in each DC across.

To attach the pocket to the rest of the case it can be a little complicated. I’ve included pictures to try to help.

Line up Row 7 of pocket with Row 68 of case. Insert hook through both loops of row 7 and the loop under the top loops of row 68.



SS around entire pocket leaving top edge open.

Trim

With front cover facing, attach yarn at any point through both covers. SC around entire edge joining the two sides together.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Closure

You have a couple of options when it comes to a closure for your case. You can create a button loop and sew a button, or you can do like I did and create a tie.

To create the tie, attach the yarn about halfway down one of the short sides. CH 1 and SC securing the yarn. CH 22, then slip ST back down the chain, into the side of the SC, and into the loop where the yarn is attached. Fasten off and weave in ends. Repeat on the other short side.






I hope you enjoy this pattern. I was so excited when I finished mine. I was like a little girl opening a Christmas present.

Have a good weekend!

Happy Hooking!

Free Pattern Friday: Kassia Empire Waist Dress (2-4 years)

Happy Friday and Happy Independence Day!

It's been a while since I posted a free pattern. I finally have a day off today to share one with all of you.

If you've been on Pinterest, I'm sure you've seen the crochet top and tulle bottom dresses. I fell in love the first time I saw one. I haven't been able to find a pattern I love so I thought I'd write one and share it with all of you. I hope it's easy to read and not confusing.

Flower Crown Animal Hats

I don’t know about you all, but I am ready for spring. I am ready for warm weather, the Easter season, my birthday, my husband’s birthday, and our wedding anniversary. (Okay, maybe I just realized how busy we are going to be in a month or two.)
Spring fever gave me the inspiration to make the animal hats I have been wanted to make since the beginning of January. I’ve seen such cute knitted versions on Pinterest, but I hadn’t come across a crochet pattern for any of them. What do I do when I can’t find a pattern? Come up with one myself.
I hope you all enjoy making them as much as I did.

I had all of these in my stash and I’m sure other worsted weight yarn i…

Flower Crown Unicorn Hat.

Do you ever have an idea that will not leave you alone until you execute it? That’s how I feel about this new hat pattern. I have two orders I should be working on, but I couldn’t focus on either one of them until this hat pattern came to fruition.
After the release of my Flower Crown Animal Hats, I heard the suggestion of releasing a child size hat pattern. So here it is. I am still working on the adult size pattern as well as the idea tomake a more masculine version. Hopefully, I will be able to bring that to you next week.
