Pipsqueak Peeps
~ free crochet pattern ~

Here’s another very simple, quick and easy crochet pattern for Easter! These cuties are crocheted with the super fluffy soft yarn from Bernat – the Pipsqueak yarn! Although soft and fluffy, they are quite hard to see while crocheting, you sort of have to ‘feel’ the stitches to know where your hook should go. For that reason, I do add a helper yarn (that’s what I like to call it) and it does help a lot in seeing where your next few stitches are going to be. For the samples, I picked a lightweight yarn that matches the color of the pipsqueak yarn and it really helped a lot.

Chillin’ with the Peeps
~ free crochet pattern ~

A very simple, quick and easy crochet pattern for Easter! Crochet these peeps with worsted weight yarn or that super soft Bernat Blanket yarn! The purple, pink and green peeps are done using worsted weight; the blue peep is done in the Bernat Blanket yarn, which is a super bulky #6 weight yarn. You will notice I used Caron One Pound for both the purple and green peeps, but used Vanna’s for the pink — that is because I ran out of the Caron One Pound in Soft Pink! I actually did go to JoAnn’s to see if I can grab another skein of soft pink, but they didn’t have it in stock. I do recommend to use the same yarn weight & brand if you are making a few peeps so the sizes stay consistent. My pink bunny turned out a little smaller than the others.

The Hoppy Easter Appliqués
~ new crochet pattern ~

Easter is way early this year – April 1st! If you’re looking for some quick and fun Easter crochet projects, these may be for you! These fun Little Holiday Appliqués are worked in the round, similar to the form of amigurumi and can be stuffed with fiberfill to create a 3D/puffy appliqué or flattened!

You may want to stuff it if you plan to hang them as a keychain on a bag or give to children as a small plush toy. You may also flatten the appliqués to sew on Easter baskets, blankets or hats!

The Cat in the Hat Amigurumi
~ free crochet pattern ~

This Cat in the Hat amigurumi was created for my little one, who went to see the Cat in the Hat puppet show at a children’s theatre. He brought the cat with him and my husband took photos to show me how he was hugging the cat while watching the show. It is such a good feeling to know someone cherishes your handmade gift, isn’t it? The Cat in the Hat now sits at home with our many Dr. Seuss books.

Clio the Corgi // New Crochet Pattern!

Can you believe January is already over? Happy February! That means it’s Lunar New Year time, February 16th, to be exact. It is also the Year of the Dog for 2018. Hence, Clio was born! I love Corgis and since it’s Year of the Dog, of course I had to make him the Chinese New Year (CNY) crochet dog!

Clio is worked from his feet up. You will crochet the little parts such as the tail, forelegs and ears first, then move on to the legs, body and head. The little parts are then attached to the body as you go. That way, you aren’t sewing a bunch of parts at the end. The legs, body and head are worked in one-piece! Less sewing is always better, isn’t it?
