New Crochet Pattern – Outdoor Splendor Hat and Cowl

Outdoor Splendor Hat and Cowl by Pattern-Paradise. #crochet #hat #cowl #scarf #pattern

***** Introducing The Outdoor Splendor Crochet Pattern Clearly I love crochet, but I will admit I don't always love those holes created by double crochets and even half double crochets, and they allow too much cold to get in! I've been playing with different stitches that produce a more solid fabric and knit look. I think I've achieved that with this set!      Debut Sale!30% off thru January 30th20% off thru February 1st Only in my Ravelry shop.  No coupon code needed. The Read more

FREE Crochet Pattern – Sweetheart Boot Cuffs

Sweetheart Set

I was chatting with a couple of crochet "yarny" friends and we came up with an idea. Wouldn't it be fun to collaborate on a free crochet pattern, start with a stitch and concept and see how we would each interpret it? So we decided to do a Valentine's Day inspired set which would include Hand Warmers, Boot Cuffs and Headband set. We chose the double crochet cluster as our "stitch", because it reminded us of little hearts, and we chose graded shades of pink as the color scheme, the rest was up to Read more

FREE Knit Pattern – Simply Knit Gloves

Simply Knit Gloves by pattern-paradise.com IMG_5815

Crochet is my favorite yarn art,  however, I do enjoy knitting too and every so often I write a knit pattern. Sometimes I need to take a little break from crochet just to clear my head. The other night I took such a break and was looking for a little inspiration. Fortunately, my son's girlfriend provided the inspiration -- she needed a pair of warm fingerless gloves! This is a super simple pattern and took less than 2 hours to finish in a bulky yarn and 9.0 mm needles. I didn't have double Read more

FREE Crochet Pattern – Pixie Bonnet

Pixie Bonnet Free Pattern by Pattern-Paradise.com

I love the way a baby looks in a crochet bonnet. Bonnets are just so sweet and seem to perfectly frame their innocent faces. I had a little leftover yarn from the Winter Hug Cowl I made a few weeks ago and it was asking to be whipped up into something delicate Click here to add to your Ravelry favorites and queue.   This is a very basic and quick square bonnet with a border and braided ties. My pattern is designed for newborn to 3 months, but you can easily adjust it to your specific Read more

XSt Cuffs by pattern-paradise 2202

The second pattern in the crochet X Stitch Series Boot Cuffs!
