Crochet bags are a fun project to make. Not only are they practical but they’re easy to customize in ways of colour choices and fit with the strap and size. Today I would like to introduce the Lemon Stripes bag, the latest free crochet pattern on my blog.
Are you a fan of the suzette stitch? It’s one of my favourites to use within patterns and such a great way to expand on the basic stitches. If you can make the single crochet and double crochet, you can do the suzette stitch!
This fun scarf pattern makes use of colour blocking for a fun and eye catching design. The striped sections are a great opportunity to use up leftover skeins from your stash! Which colours would you use?

Free crochet pattern coming your way! Although it’s August and we’ve had some recent heat waves, I can feel the mornings changing. That cool, crisp and refreshing air early in the morning as autumn begins to creep in. I absolutely love it. Summer is lovely but it’s never been my favourite. Autumn is a time of change, all things cozy and the perfect opportunity to dig out my cardigans and box of handmade scarves.
Inspired by the recent cool mornings, the Loops and Ridges scarf came about quite naturally as I was playing around with stitch combinations. This scarf is full of texture and cozy with a simple but fun sectioned repeat. I used WeCrochet Heatherly in the beautiful “Sweet Bing” colourway to make this lovely and eye catching project.

Have you ever bought yarn strictly based on the colourway? I think many of us have. I was browsing online (you’ll understand the rabbit hole of yarn shopping) and found Lion Brand Landscapes. It looked very beautiful and I immediately added some to my cart without knowing much about it. Sometimes the challenge of figuring out a plan after I bought the yarn can be kind of fun. I also thought it would be a great opportunity to add another yarn review to the blog so I could share my experience with others.
The crochet wattle stitch is a simple combination of chains, single and double crochet. It creates an interesting and fairly dense texture that also has a bit of drape which makes it ideal for a variety of projects. Washcloths, hand towels and blankets are all popular projects for the wattle stitch. It works up quickly with a relaxing row repeat and would definitely be a great stitch for both beginners and advanced crocheters to enjoy.
Learn to make the extended half double crochet stitch with this quick and fun tutorial. This simple variation on the classic half double crochet stitch is slightly taller and provides a little bit more drape.

The Winter Winds Keyhole Scarf is inspired by the frigid and blustery winds during the coldest months of the year. That “chilled to the bone” feeling when the wind hits your neck if your jacket or scarf isn’t bundled up just right. Brrrr. This keyhole scarf is designed to stay in place with your preference of a snug or loose fit. Tuck it comfortably into your jacket or wear it overtop to display the pretty lattice design at the ends. This scarf is made with Bernat Satin yarn which creates a love drape displaying the stitches of the herringbone half double crochet in such a beautiful way.
