Crochet Tutorial: Butterfly Effect Granny Square

Standard

I created this Butterfly Effect Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create a look of a 3D Butterfly! You can make this with two-toned wings or have the wings be one color! This square turned out to be a little larger (8 1/2 inches) but if you use a smaller hook this square may turn out to be 6 or 7 inches. I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Beast Hat

Standard

In keeping with my costume theme that began with my Enchanted Rose Cape, I have finished designing Part 2: The Beast Hat. From the outside, he may appear menacing, but underneath is a heart of gold. He’s my perfect beast!

This beast hat encapsulates the fierce persona that one would like to portray in this costume. If you are looking to do the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, this particular hat is just the right way to achieve that!

Beyond the Beast, this hat has a lot of versatility! You can remove the horns, change the colors, change the ears to create your own adult hat in various animals such as a bear, a skunk, a panda, or the like. This is a very warm and heavy hat perfect for those winter days. Enjoy this tutorial and written pattern!

Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Enchanted Rose Cape

Standard

So many little girls love to play dress up or pretend to be their favorite Disney Princess. I was no exception, and that spirit was something I never grew out of. I love Disney movies and the characters they embody. My Enchanted Rose Cape was inspired by one of my favorites. Fashioned after a scene from Beauty and the Beast, I created this caplet/cape combination piece to add to a costume that I am in the process of creating.

cape1

As I was creating this piece, I saw the potential for so many possibilities that could come out of this one fashion item. Changing the color to ivory, or even a sparkly white yarn, this would make a lovely winter bridal cape. In fact, just changing the color to match something in your wardrobe would make this a perfect piece for a formal cover-up. It could be an everyday poncho/cape in tones of grays or warm browns. This could also be transformed into other costume capes for characters such as Red Riding Hood, Rose Red, or any other fairy-tale or medieval character. The possibilities in color choices are endless, and the ideas know no bounds. Have fun with it!!

cape2

It doesn’t stop there. If you prefer to not include the longer cape, this would make a cute little caplet, or remove the hood and it makes a nice poncho. Adjust the size and you can change the whole look! With this easy repeat pattern and stitch, anything is possible!

Enjoy this pattern and share your photos on the Facebook page when you finish!!

Crochet Tutorial: In Full Bloom Granny Square

Standard

I created this In Full Bloom Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches including crocodile stitches to create an interesting floral design! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.
