Free Crochet Pattern Black and White Check Scarf

This is an easy pattern. The check design is achieved by a line of black stitches with V loops alternating between the bands of white. At the end, the loops are inserted one into another to form vertical lines of black.

I used a sport weight yarn to make the scarf to keep it lighter and easier to be worn.

Great gift for the guys in your life. Or do it up in a teenagers school colors for a bit of school pride.



You will find the pattern here.
Enjoy!

This is a very straight forward pattern. You thread your beaded onto the crochet thread and then chain, slide a bead, chain.  The drops of are a series of chain/bead and then slip stitch to make the loop.

Great pattern for the beginner who only knows how to chain!

Enjoy!

Blue Bulky Knit Jacket Free Vintage Pattern


This week's free vintage pattern is for a lovely Bulky Jacket. You can find the pattern here. It is a knit pattern and not a crochet pattern, but the vintage look was just too adorable to pass up sharing.

Remember this is an old pattern so the yarns called for may no longer be available, but it usually is a simple matter of finding a new or current yarn that will work.

Enjoy!

Fleece Poodle Scarf Pattern From My Crochet Poodle Scarf Pattern



I'm so proud of this pattern. I just posted it on Etsy for 4.99! No, it's not free, but I've always made of point of stating if this is a pattern I'm selling several times in my post. Please don
t hold me responsible for Pinterest boards that state a pattern of mine is free. I have no control over other people's boards.


This the Poodle's face, hair, muzzle, ears, eyes, nose and tongue are all glued on with no-sew glue to keep the scarf totally washable.
The scarf it's self, legs and tail are all sewn with a machine.


Several photo tutorials are included in the pattern: How to attached the cut fleece that make's the Poodle's fur, how to put the legs together, how to layer the head as well as how to make French knots in the eyes.


Remember the fleece pattern is for sell at my Etsy shop for 4.99!
Above it a photo of my crochet Poodle scarf (also not free and available at Etsy for 4.99!)
I think I did a good job translating the crochet Poodle scarf into fleece.
I plan on making fleece patterns for all my scarves.
Hope you like it!
