Even though it’s still March and we have snow on the ground, spring is on my mind! I designed this simple crochet bag that creates some cute spring vibes with the addition of sweet little flower accents stitched into the corner.
It works up quickly and has a lot of flexibility for personalization when it comes to colours, buttons and the strap. You can find all the free pattern details below…
Today I have another quick project for you, one that’s practical and uses a fun variation of the single crochet stitch. The extended single crochet stitch is used throughout and works up slightly taller than the traditional version while still making a solid fabric that’s perfect for dishcloths. It’s a very nice stitch to use with a solid shade but works well with a variegated or striped yarn, often with colourful and fun results.

Can you believe that since beginning Sweet Bee Crochet that I haven’t released a bee themed pattern yet? I’m fixing that today with a fun and practical mug rug design! Simple, adorable and requires only a small amount of yarn. While it is made with the cute traditional “bee” themed colours, you could definitely make it your own by switch up the shades to your preference.
A few years ago, I created a simple holiday themed hexagon table runner to add some colourful, handmade decor for my coffee table. I received quite a few inquires about how it was made and put together so I thought it would be helpful to share the process.
Please note this isn’t so much a pattern as it is a basic tutorial on how it was created. I have included a hexagon tutorial as well as an invisible seam tutorial for anyone looking to learn.
The suzette stitch makes another appearance on my blog in this new crochet washcloth design. It’s definitely one of my favourite stitches and with the beautiful texture and dense appearance, you can see why it’s a great choice for projects like washcloths.
The simple ridges in the middle are eye catching and create a nice break in the repetitiveness of the suzette stitch. This washcloth works up quickly and has a simple edging to provide a neat and tidy finish. Learn more about this design and find the free pattern below…
When I think back to my early days of learning crochet, I remember how badly I want to learn more than the simple chains, swatches and granny squares. It was with that in mind that I created the Beginner Double Crochet Scarf. The end result is a practical project that uses the basic stitches (chains, single crochet and double crochet) and would make a wonderful wearable item for you or a friend.

Let’s take a quick moment to appreciate the gorgeous brown and yellow in this crochet scarf. I’m a huge fan of these shades together and when the yarn is tweed, be still my heart! This scarf has beautiful rustic vibes and is made using two simple stitches which keeps the project fun, fast and beginner friendly.
Crochet hexagons are one of my favourite motifs to make. They’re quick, beginner friendly and I love how much you can customize them. Not only that, but they also leave a ton of room for creativity within different types of projects.
This free crochet pattern utilizes 3 different tutorials that can be found on my blog. I have combined them to create a simple project that can be made using your favourite colours of worsted weight yarn. I have included direct links to those tutorials within the pattern so that you can learn more about them at an in-depth level if you’d like.
Let’s jump in and get crocheting! Find the free pattern below…
A crochet dice bag was a project that I had been wanting to make for a while. I finally sat down recently to write one up using a fun stitch with options for colour changes. We play a lot of games at our house and have accumulated quite a collection of dice, so this was definitely a useful project.
Of course, this design isn’t just for keeping your dice safe. You can also use this pouch to store other small accessories or notions. Interested in making your own? Find the free pattern below…
Introducing the Simple Stitch Skinny Scarf. By the name of the pattern, you can probably guess that this isn’t an overly complicated design. In fact, this pattern is so simple that it’s perfect for working on while watching a movie or when you need a break from larger projects.
This pattern uses the basic stitches and provides an introduction to crocheting with increases and decreases. Made with fingering/sock weight yarn and a 4mm hook, this design would be a great option for crocheters wanting to try working with a smaller weight yarn.
