FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Monster/Alien Stuffed Toy Amigurumi

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Monster/Alien Stuffed Toy Amigurumi

It’s that time of year again! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Every year, we try to create something unique and fun to share here on YARNutopia. This year is no exception, and we have decided on some friendly monster costumes.

For my costume I just made a monster amigurumi doll and wore a pink and purple outfit to tie it all together.

In recent years, it has been difficult to find the time to make elaborate plans for costumes and not be able to get them done. I’ve scaled down quite a bit, but still like to make sure that I’ve included crochet in each costume. I hope you enjoy our monster costumes and keep coming back each year to see more!

Rnd 1: 2 SC in 2nd ch from hook, 1 SC in each of the next chs across, put 3 SC in last ch, continue to SC along the opposite side of the foundation ch, SC across, put 1 SC in the first st where you put 2 SC in. (48)

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Toddler Monster Costume

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Toddler Monster Costume

It’s that time of year again! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Every year, we try to create something unique and fun to share here on YARNutopia. This year is no exception, and we have decided on some friendly monster costumes.

Nas loves his one-eyed green monster with horns! He was running around trying to catch pretend monsters and pretend he was one too! He’s such a little goofball!

Nasir’s costume consists of the crocheted green slip-on with a face. I paired that with the green leggings and turtleneck that I bought on Amazon. I used Lion Brand Yarn to create this ensemble. The exact type of yarn and colors and amount is all listed below in the “Materials you will need” section.

Weave in all ends.

Horns:

Make 2 in the gray yarn
WORK IN BLO
Work in continuous rounds

Ch 2
Rnd 1: 4 SC in 2nd ch from hook. (4)

Fasten off with long tail for sewing.

Sew horns to the hat in the top front (see photos for reference on positioning)

Assembly step:
Cut a TON of 4 inch strands of the turquoise yarn and the homespun purple yarn
loop 1 or 2 strands around the front loops you left unworked on the hat and tie them in knots (this is a very tedious part of the hat, but it’s worth it!)
Make the purple spots first, then go in and add the turquoise yarn. I skipped 2 sts between attaching yarn so it wouldn’t be too fluffy but you can add or do less. The monster hat I made has 4 medium sized purple spots on the head. Don’t worry about uneven strands, after all the strands are attached, you will give the hat a haircut to your liking!

Enjoy!

Pattern:

If you have any confusion or difficulty with reading this pattern, please watch the video tutorial that is linked above in this blog post to have visual instructions.

Crop Top:

Ch 111 or any multiple of 12+3

Row 1: 2 DC in 3rd Ch from hook, *DC in next 5 chs, Sk 1 ch, DC in next 5 chs, 3 DC in next ch, repeat from * across, ending with 2 DC in last st. Ch 2, Turn.

Row 2: 2 DC in first st, *DC in next 5 sts, Sk 2 sts, DC in next 5 sts, 3 DC in next st (this should be in the middle st of the 3 dc grouping), repeat from * across, ending with 2 DC in last st, Ch 2, Turn.

Row 3: 2 DC in first st, *DC in next 5 sts, Sk 2 sts, DC in next 5 sts, 3 DC in next st, repeat from * across, ending with 2 DC in last st, Ch 2, Turn.

Row 4 to 16: Repeat Row 3 (make it wider if half of your chest is not covered) See video tutorial for placement.

Make 2 panels like this.

Assembly step:
Sew the center seam together up the middle and in the middle of the back as well

Bottom band:

Attach your yarn at the corner of the panels that you sewed together. DC along the edge of the front side, then Continue DC stitches along the side of the Back edge to make it attached as a circle to wrap around the mid section. (See video tutorial for visual instructions). Sl st to first st and then ch 2 and continue onto next row.

I did 6 rounds total of 128 sts all around for each row.

You can continue to do more rows to make your shirt longer if you’d like.

Assembly step:

Sew up the sides to make the arm holes smaller if you’d like! Leave it open for a more free feel!

Weave in all ends. Enjoy!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Ruffled Trim Sweater Vest

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Ruffled Trim Sweater Vest

I decided to get back into fashion pieces. I have been taking time to ease back into filming following Nasir’s diagnosis and felt it was time to dip my hook back into the fashion pool with my Ruffle Trim Sweater Vest. I used Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend Yarn on this piece and am SO PLEASED! This is so cute over a long sleeve t-shirt or blouse, but can also pair nicely with a tank top for a warmer weather look. If you are so inclined, you can also wear nothing under it and just use a little boob tape to hold it in place (or wear it over a sexy bra). You can adjust the length to make it a crop top or a little longer for a full vest look. This can be entirely flexible to your taste. Add bows to the front (check my vid here) or adorn with floral appliques! You can make the same pattern multiple ways for a new look every time! This would also make a great gift!!

Get the supplies individually by clicking the links below
Lion Brand Yarn Comfy Cotton Blend (1100 yards or 3 cakes of this specific yarn)
Size -H-5.00mm Crochet Hook
-Measuring Tape
Yarn Needle
Scissors

NOTES:

-Use a smaller hook to make this smaller
-Use a bigger hook to make this bigger
-This is written in US terms
-This took about 1 week to make but I did not work on it continuously.
-You can check out yarnsub.com to see yarn substitutions that are equal to the Lion Brand yarn I used in this project.
-This pattern with video tutorial shows the measurement as 40 inch bust, 40 inch waist, 20 inch length
-For Panel 1 and 2, measure from your armpit to the center of your chest and that is how many ROWS you will make. To measure the foundation chain of these panels, you need to measure from your navel, up around your shoulder to the back where your navel would hit on your back, that measurement needs to be the WIDTH of your panel or the length of the foundation chain. (See video tutorial for more visual instructions)
-For the bottom waist piece, you need to make the foundation chain the whole measurement of your waist and the length of it can be as long as you want to make the shirt.

Special stitches:
Ch(s): chain(s)
YO: Yarn Over
St(s): Stitch(es)
Sl st: slip stitch
SK: Skip
FSC: Foundation Single Crochet
FDC: Foundation Double Crochet
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
DC: Double Crochet

 

Pattern:

Panel 1 and 2 (Left and Right)

Ch 101 (or FSC 100) (yours might be longer or shorter depending on your measurement–see NOTES section)

Row 1: SC in 2nd Ch from hook and across, Ch 1, Turn. (100)

Row 2: SC in each st across, Ch 1, Turn.

Rows 3-28: Repeat Row 2

Row 29: SC across and also continue to crochet around entire piece putting 3 SC in corners.
Sl st to first st and fasten off with long tail for sewing later.
If this is not wide enough or too wide, make more or less rows (See NOTES section for how to measure)
(Be sure to make 2 panels before going onto the bottom piece)

Ruffles:

On outside of each panel attach yarn to corner and only work along ONE SIDE of the panel.
Row 1: Ch 2, 2 DC in each st across, Ch 2, Turn

Row 2: *2 DC in next st, DC in next st, Repeat from * across. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Bottom Waistband Piece:

Ch 120 (or any amount that measures your waist measurement when the foundation chain is semi-stetched)

Row 1: Sl st to first Ch to form a large ring, Ch 1, SC in each Ch around, sl st to first st, Ch 1, TURN.

Row 2: SC in each st around, Sl st to first st, Ch 1, TURN.

Rows 3-24: Repeat Row 2
If you want this piece shorter or longer, feel free to make more or less rows.

Assembly Step:
overlap your panels across the front and back and line them up with the bottom of your shirt. Sew across the front, then across the back. Be sure that your “Seam” on the waistband part is on the back side of your piece when you’re sewing. (See video tutorial for visual instructions on how to line everything up together) I used the whip stitch to sew it all together. Weave in all your ends when finished.

Ties:

Chain 150 (or more) and fasten off (make 2)
Weave them in and out of the waist piece across the front for one and across the back for the other, then cinch it and tie into bows.

Weave in all ends.

Enjoy!!

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Ruffled Trim Sweater Vest

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Ruffled Trim Sweater Vest

I decided to get back into fashion pieces. I have been taking time to ease back into filming following Nasir’s diagnosis and felt it was time to dip my hook back into the fashion pool with my Ruffle Trim Sweater Vest. I used Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend Yarn on this piece and am SO PLEASED! This is so cute over a long sleeve t-shirt or blouse, but can also pair nicely with a tank top for a warmer weather look. If you are so inclined, you can also wear nothing under it and just use a little boob tape to hold it in place (or wear it over a sexy bra). You can adjust the length to make it a crop top or a little longer for a full vest look. This can be entirely flexible to your taste. Add bows to the front (check my vid here) or adorn with floral appliques! You can make the same pattern multiple ways for a new look every time! This would also make a great gift!!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Chunky Rainbow Pom Scarf

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Chunky Rainbow Pom Scarf

As I work my way back to filming regular crochet tutorials, I am also thinking ahead to our annual Halloween costumes. Here is the first of several pieces that will lead up to our big reveal. This is my Chunky Rainbow Pom Scarf. Perfect for the cool weather we are starting to experience here in Wisconsin.  The time for warm weather apparel is going to be here before we know it and we need to be prepared! My Rainbow 🌈 scarf can be made exactly how I made it but use your imagination and find your own color combination to match your look! There are many possibilities! These make great gifts for anyone. You can always make it with or without poms to change the look! Now that is versatility!! I used Hometown yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. You will want to grab yours too because the softness is divine!

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

12 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday JOY Wall Hanging (Photo Tutorial)

Bring a bit of *Joy* to your holiday home this season. Using a little yarn-art, you can create this door/wall hanging in a few short minutes using my step-by-step instructions. This lovely homemade, home town decor piece is sure to bring joy and happiness to any home it graces.

Disclaimer: this project requires the use of a hot glue gun. Please be careful using any type of heated tool as these can cause burns. Please supervise children when attempting this project.
I used the following supplies listed below to complete this project

To make the feather, I used the feather crochet tutorial I found on YouTube by Claudetta Crochet and you can view it HERE.

The feather is NOT my own design, but I found the video tutorial extremely helpful in making the one I attached to the wreath in this project.

Supplies needed:
Click on the links to shop online for these same products.

J and Y wooden letters

Mini Wreath (8 inches)

Holly Berries

Hometown Yarn in off white color

Wool Ease yarn in red

Basic Stitch yarn in Green

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks

Red Ribbon

G-4.25mm crochet hook

Scissors

Yarn Needle

 

 

I first wrapped the letters in the chunky yarn and used hot glue to keep it attached

Next, I glued the J and Y to the wreath using hot glue, and I also attached the ribbon on the back of the letter J with hot glue as well

 

 

Next, I crocheted the feather using this video tutorial as a guide

 

Then I attached the feather and the holly berries to the wreath with hot glue

 

 

 

This is how it all turned out!! I LOVE IT!!
