5 Unique Crochet Patterns to Try

There’s so many things that can be made by knitting and crocheting…the possibilities are endless! If you’re bored of hats, scarves, blankets etc., here are a few unique things you can make! There are great patterns for unique gifts, decorations, or just a new accessory for yourself!

Save The Drama Llama

Llama doll crochet pattern
Pattern by Nancy Anderson

Llama and alpacas are all the trend lately when it comes to decorations, toys and accessories. Every time I go to the store I see something with a cute alpaca or llama pattern or some new alpaca knick knack. With this pattern, join the alpaca/llama craze and crochet your own! Customize your llama to be any color you like! My recommendation would be to use Snuggle yarn for a fluffy, squishy soft alpaca or llama! For some extra crochet help see
Online Crochet Classes.

Floor Pouf

crocheted floor pouf
Pattern by MJ’s Off the Hook Designs

Ok, I think poufs are the perfect addition to any living room! Everyone likes to kick back and put their feet up. Relax in style with your own custom floor pouf … you can even make it multicolored! The pattern calls for three strands of bulky cotton and an (L) crochet 8mm crochet hook . Again, I would use our bulky Snuggle yarn for a super soft pouf!

Slipper Boots

Crocheted slipper boots
Pattern on SMP Craft

Slippers are great in the winter and summer! These babies would make an awesome Christmas gift! Just sayin’, it’s never too early to be thinking about Christmas gifts. Try out some Classic Alpaca Tweed yarn for this pattern!

Gypsy Boho Bag

Pattern on Make & Do Crew

I guarantee no one else will be carrying the same purse as you after this pattern! Create your own one-of-a-kind bag! The style is so “Gypsy Boho”… this is sure to be the perfect lightweight purse for you this summer. Choose one of the many solid colors of Classic Alpaca Yarn or go with a worsted weight and use one of the pretty colors in our new Espiral Yarn line. I am also picturing using some Alpaca Art Yarn on this bag for some wild colors and texture.

Cactus Pots

crocheted decorative cactus pots
Pattern by PlanetJune

Anyone have trouble keeping houseplants alive? Problem solved. Add some greenery to your house that you never have to remember to water! These cacti pots are sooo stinkin’ cute…and Southwestern decor seems to be all the rage lately.

Snuggle Wrist Cuffs and Yarn Substitution

This was a FREE knitting pattern I picked up at JoAnn Fabrics, also available on the Lion Brand website, and Ravelry.  It is an easy beginner’s pattern.

I substituted one of our Snuggle yarns for the Lion Brand Yarn that the pattern called for.  Both the Snuggle Yarn and the Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn are considered Super Bulky weight at 5-6 wraps per inch.

Snuggle Yarn - Black

When substituting yarn for projects different than what the project calls for, the gauge of your pattern determines which weight of yarn you should select. You can use any yarn that has a suggested gauge equal to the gauge of your pattern. Ideally, you’d confirm the match by knitting and blocking a gauge swatch.  Potential substitutes might also be found in other gauge (weight) categories. By increasing and decreasing your needle size, you can alter the gauge and characteristics of the knitted fabric.

Snuggle Wrist Cuffs

If a pattern doesn’t tell you the gauge, it likely will tell you the weight of the yarn, whether its chunky, worsted, or fingering weight. Some patterns that give gauge will also tell you the weight of the yarn, which is handy information to help in your search.

This method works best if the gauge of your pattern is given over stockinette if knitting, or over single crochet if crocheting.

Be sure to swatch and check your gauge carefully, using whatever size hook or needle is needed to obtain the gauge of the pattern. Be sure you are satisfied with the fabric that results; it should be neither too stiff nor too loose.

I have to be honest, I have never knit a swatch to check the gauge in my life.  I do a lot of winging it, making adjustments as I go, making notes for next time.  Sometimes I’m happy with the results, sometimes I’m not.

Free Crochet Pattern – Elf Slippers

Tis the season to be crocheting up some Elf Slippers!  This super cute crochet pattern was designed by KJ Hay and calls for a bulky weight yarn and and a US I-9 (5.5mm) crochet hook.   It is written for sizes XS to XL.

elf slippers crochet pattern

I’m thinking the perfect yarn would be our Snuggle bulky weight alpaca blend yarn.  Oh would these slippers be soft and warm!

        Snuggle Bulky Alpaca Blend Yarn - Jubilee  

I’d choose the colors Jubilee, Snow White, and either Shire or Pine Tree for the green.  Not exactly the same as the picture, but I like this combination.

 

The pattern suggests jingle bells or pompoms for the toe.  I definitely would opt for pompoms, thinking the jingle of the bells might get a little tiresome!

I think I’ll try a pair, in a small size, which would be really cute, don’t you think?

Free Crochet Pattern – Simple Ridged Fingerless Mitts

This is a simple crochet pattern for fingerless mitts using our Snuggle Yarn.  The color pictured is called Knot of Naturals.  All but the foundation row uses half double crochets, with four different rows crocheted in the black loop only, creating texture in this simple design.  These fingerless mitts work up quickly in this bulky alpaca blend yarn.

NOTES

Row 1 calls for a Foundation Single Crochet, or FSC.  Instead you may just chain 24 and slip stitch to join, making sure you don’t twist the chain, then do a row of single crochet into your foundation chain.  I prefer the FSC as it is a bit stretchier.  Below is a tutorial that will show you how.

Free Crochet Pattern – Squish Cowl

I love this pattern by Tamara Kelly that she calls her Squish Cowl.  She uses a special stitch called Split Bullion Stitch that involves yarning over six times which creates lots of gorgeous texture and squishiness!
Tamara’s pattern is FREE and can be found on her blog that she calls Moogly, by clicking here.

Squish Cowl - Snuggle Yarn

I chose our Snuggle Hand Dyed Yarn, which is a soft and lofty, bulky alpaca blend yarn, and used a 9.0 mm (M/N) crochet hook.  This color is called Knot of Naturals.  I love the effect that the shades of grey produce with this yarn and pattern.

Squish Cowl

SPECIAL STITCH

spbs: Split Bullion Stitch – Yo 6 times, insert hook in first indicated stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 4 loops (5 loops remain on hook), yo, insert hook in next indicated stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through all 7 loops on hook.

 There is a video tutorial on Tamara’s blog for both right and left hand folks demonstrating how to do this fun stitch.

squish_cowl (2)

 The finished measurements of my cowl were 42″ circumference (21″ laid flat) x 8″ wide which took 172 yards of the Snuggle Yarn.  To customize the length, begin with a starting chain in a multiple of 2, plus 1.

Free Knitting Pattern – Easy Mistake Stitch Scarf

This Easy Mistake Stitch Scarf is a pattern I like to use when teaching people how to knit.  This pattern is from the Purl Soho website.  I have adapted the pattern to use with our bulky Snuggle Yarn from the Alpaca Yarn Company, and big needles, so fewer stitches are needed when casting on than what is written in the original pattern.

Hand-Knit Ribbed Snuggle Scarf

SKILL LEVEL

Easy

NEEDLES

US 11 – 8.0 mm

MATERIALS

Two skeins of Snuggle Yarn

NOTE

Ribbing is the result of alternating knit and purl stitches within the same row.   Mistake rib is a multiple of 4+3

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

Approximately 60” long x 6” wide

easy_mistake_stitch_scarf_snuggle

DIRECTIONS

Cast on 19 stitches.

K2, p2, repeat to last 3 stitches, k2, p1.

  This scarf will take two skeins of yarn, which will require joining a new skein of yarn.  If possible do this at the end of the row.

Repeat the pattern for 60 inches or to desired length. That’s it!

If you plan to knit until you run out of yarn, you will need to be sure you will have enough yarn left to bind off.   Figure out how much yarn it takes you to knit one row, plus some extra.  You can measure off a few yards and then determine whether your row takes you more or less.  This will give you an approximate amount of yarn necessary to bind off.

Bind off stitches in stitch pattern.  Be sure to bind off loosely or the pattern will be “gathered” at the bound edge.  If you find the edge is too tight when binding off, use a larger needle to bind off.  Also, be sure to form the stitch on the straight part of the needle, not the tip.

Next, you will want to weave in the ends and block your scarf.  Blocking is an integral part of finishing a knitted item.  It will even out your stitches and allow your fiber to bloom!

Free Crochet Pattern – Stormy Weather Cowl

I liked this cowl pattern so much that I made three of them!  I did use three different color combinations, not sure which one I like the best.  The pattern is called Stormy Weather Cowl by Tamara Kelly.  It works up very fast with our bulky Snuggle yarn and a big hook.  The colors I used for the one below are Winter Sky and Pine Tree.

Stormy Weather Cowl - Snuggle Yarn

Love the zig zag design that is accomplished by going two rows down to create the stitch, a little tricky, but no big deal once you figure out where to put your hook!

stormy_weather_cowl_snuggle2487x640

HOOK

US 9.0mm/10.mm (M/N)

MATERIALS

One Skein each of two different colors Snuggle Yarn (I only used about half a skein of each, so there will be yarn left for another project, maybe another two tone project)

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

32 inches (81.28cm) and the width is 7 inches (17.78cm).

NOTES

This pattern is not worked in successive stitches, but rather in successive chain spaces – two rows down. It makes for a very closed fabric with lots of interest, but it’s not as hard as it might sound!  To make the cowl longer, add any multiple of 2 to the starting chain/first round. If you want a closer fitting neck warmer, just decrease by any multiple of 2.

DIRECTIONS

Round 1: With Color A, ch 61, sc in 2nd ch from hook, and each remaining ch to end; join with sl st to work in the round. (60 sts)

Round 4: (Note: When you dc in the ch sps, be sure to enclose the ch sts of Round 2 and Round 3 in the st.) With Color B, join with sl st to any ch-1 sp in Round 2, enclosing the ch-1 sp in Round 3, ch 2, dc in next ch-1 sp of Round 2, * ch 1, dc2tog with the 1st half in the same ch sp as the previous stitch, and the 2nd half in the next ch sp; repeat from * finishing last dc2tog with 2nd half in same ch sp as join, ch 1, join with sl st to 1st dc of round.

Free Knitting Pattern – Seed Stitch Knit Scarf

Seed stitch, also known as moss stitch, is a basic texture stitch. It is made up of alternating knit and purl stitches.

Seed Stitch Knit Scarf

The fabric is firm, does not curl, and looks the same on both sides. It is ideal for small knits, scarves, cowls, mittens, gloves, and knits up into super cute baby items!   This is a stitch you will want to learn!

Textured Snuggle Scarf

For this scarf, I used big needles and our bulky Snuggle Yarn.  It is a very simple pattern and the texture is so pretty!

NEEDLES

Size 15 (10.00 mm)

MATERIALS

NOTE

An odd number of stitches is required for seed stitch.  The trick to the seed stitch is knowing when to knit and when to purl.  You will be knitting the purl stitches and purling the knit stitches.  Starting with an odd number of stitches you will always be starting and ending the row with a knit stitch.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

Approximately 6” wide x 60” long

Cast on 19 sts loosely.  Work in seed stitch, as described below, for 60 inches or to desired length. Bind off stitches.  Weave in ends.

Free Crochet Pattern – Bulky Ribbed Scarf

 I use this pattern by Prague Loop over and over.  It is easy, mindless and quick, especially with a bulky yarn.  Any yarn could be used and any size hook.  My favorite yarn to use with this pattern is our Snuggle Yarn.  This scarf is worked lengthwise, back and forth in rows, and gauge is not important.  Super easy one row scarf, very suitable for beginners.

Ribbed Crochet Scarf

The color of the Snuggle Yarn pictured above is called Seafoam.

HOOK

US Size N – 9.0 mm

MATERIALS

131 Yards of Snuggle Yarn

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

6 inches wide, and 50 inches long
Bulky Ribbed Crochet Scarf

The color of this Snuggle Yarn is called Winkle.

DIRECTIONS

Decide how long a scarf is good for you.  Chain an amount of st that is the length you want.  The scarves above were made with 100 stitches, though next time I make it I may go a little longer.

Setup row: HDC (half double crochet) in each st.

Row 1: HDC into back loop of every HDC of previous row.

(Note for the beginner: Unlike single or double crochet, the HDC stitches appear to have an extra loop at the top.  You will be using the loop that is at the back of the stitch.  In a few rows, you will see that the two loops you have not been using form a “chain” along the length of the scarf.)

Repeat row 1 until the scarf is as wide as you want or you run out of yarn.

You might want to work one round of single crochet around the whole thing, so the edge looks neat, but it is not necessary.  Weave in ends.

Blocking is optional.

Enjoy your new scarf or give it to someone!

Bulky Ribbed Crochet Scarf - Knot of Naturals

 This scarf was made with the same pattern using one of the Hand Dyed Snuggle Yarns called Knot of Naturals.  The hand dyed line comes in seven different colors!

Bulky Ribbed Scarf - Group of Greens

Any yarn can be used with the pattern, and gauge is not important.

Swizzle Alpaca Ribbed Scarf

This scarf was made with our Swizzle Alpaca Yarn using a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook and chaining 145 stitches.  It took just one skein of yarn for a scarf that measured 60″ long  by  5.5″ wide.  See Free Crochet Pattern – Swizzle Alpaca Ribbed Scarf.
