0 Crochet Plus Blanket Pattern

I love blankets that can be made for boys or girls. And this one is perfect. It whips up easy and fast and only uses 7 skeins of yarn. It is a baby/toddler blanket and is 29 inches by 35 inches. It only took a few days to make too. So it's perfect for a last minute baby gift. Available for instant download here in my etsy shop.

0 What I'm Working On

I've been on a break from crochet for a year or so because of life and family, but I'm SO happy to be back at it. I feel like I have a million pattern ideas in my head and I can't wait to bust them out and share with you. I get inspired by my interests and my kids. I love puzzles, so naturally I love to combine my hobbies into one, a crochet puzzle blanket! This was a little tricky to figure out and at first I was sure that I would never figure it out, but with a little patience and a lot of crocheting and unraveling, I think I've finally figured it out and I am loving the results. Here's some progress photos.


 Sadly, I have run out of some colors so I have to wait for more yarn to come in the mail. I hate when that happens. I am so excited to finish this pattern and put it up in my shop. In the meantime I've been working on this other pattern.
 Right now I'm making it into a placemat, but I think it would be a lovely pot holder or baby blanket.
Stay tuned for more updates and patterns. I'm also thinking of doing a video series on how to crochet. Let me know if you're interested. Pin It

0 Crochet VW Bus Blanket Pattern



Remember me? I haven't posted in 2 years, because of life and family and whatnot, but I really want to start blogging again with my crochet projects. So if you don't know this already about me, I have a slight obsession with VW buses. I LOVE them. And so it only made sense to create a crochet VW bus blanket for my kids (and me) to enjoy. And for you too! Find my pattern here. Hope you like it as much as I do.

2 Crochet Polka Dot Blanket Pattern

I just added this crochet pattern to my shop.  I love how it turned out. It was a little tricky figuring out, and it always is a headache making patterns, but in the end so worth it. I plan on making a gray one with all kinds of different colors sometime soon. The thing I love most about making patterns is all the new ideas I get from making one. Too many ideas, too little time!

2 New Listing in Etsy

I love doing custom orders. I made this little reindeer hat for a friend and listed the pattern in my shop. It can be for a boy or girl by just removing the bow. I'm thinking Benson and Kenzie need one each for when we go to Zoo Lights. So sweet for December babies too. I would be happy to make them for people that don't crochet, just send me an email (alynnc17@gmail.com) and let's get your babies a reindeer beanie!

3 Minions

Whose excited for Halloween?! I know I am. I made these Minion hats and Gru scarf over the weekend for my cousin's kids. I used this pattern for the hats. And the scarf was super easy, here is what I did. 

Yarn: Gray and Black medium weight yarn
Hook: Size J

Row 1: Ch. 19 sts. 
Row 2: Hdc in the 3rd ch. from the hook, hdc in each st across. 
Row 3: Ch. 2 and turn, hdc in each st across.
Row 4-8: repeat row 3.
Row 9-11: Fasten on black and repeat row 3.

Repeat from row 3-11 until your scarf is to your desired length. So simple and quick!


You could probably whip these up in a day or two, so if you are like me and wait until the last minute to get everybody's costume done, this is a fast and fun last minute costume idea.

0 Whew!

I really want to start blogging more regularly again! Sorry for the absence, but now that the weather is cooling down and we are spending our days at home more I am going to try and share more crochet ideas and craft projects with you. 

I've been getting so excited for the Holidays this year. Kenzie is old enough for it to be really exciting and I have been decorating and getting into the spirit of things. I made the alphabet banner and Halloween banners the other day and they are now available in my etsy shop.  I have made them available as a finished product, but if anyone is interested I can make the pattern available as well. Thanks for stopping by, and again so sorry for not keeping up with this blog. Stay tuned for some fun winter projects, I promise!
