Crochet Tutorial: Berry Giving Granny Square

I created this Berry Giving Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting 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.

Crochet Tutorial: The Joyful Teapot Cozy

Crochet Tutorial: The Joyful Teapot Cozy

Holiday entertaining is right around the corner. I personally enjoy tea with friends. Add a special touch to your table setting with The Joyful Teapot Cozy!

teapot3
I added the word “Joy” to my teapot, but you can add any word. It’s very simple to chain and sew it onto the cozy. You don’t have to use holly leaves and berries as your embellishments either. Have fun with it and get creative by adding flowers, leaves, or other appliqués to make your teapot cozy personal.

The Joyful Teapot Cozy makes a lovely gift idea. Wrapped around a vintage teapot and filled with specialty teas, this would go far in making someone’s holiday tea-rrific!

Now it’s time to pour yourself a cup of hot tea, pull out your hook and get started today!

Crochet Tutorial: Unicorn Slippers

“Perhaps the most wondrous of all mystical creatures, the unicorn is a symbol of miracles and enchantment.”

The unicorn gives us the power to believe that anything is possible. These fun and mythical creatures are what fantasies and dreams are made of. This pattern will transform a basic pair of slippers into unicorns that is fun for all ages!

Not looking to make unicorn slippers? Transform yours into other creatures with a few modifications! My video tutorial and FREE written pattern gives instructions on how to make 3 different sizes. I think we all could use some cozy unicorn slippers. Am I right?

Crochet Tutorial: Dynamic Window Granny Square

I created this Dynamic Window Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting 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.

I created this Hello, Sunshine Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting 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.
