Autumn Crochet Pattern Roundup

Autumn is one of my favourite times to be a crocheter. After the drought of summer friendly patterns, autumn usually finds me surrounded by piles of yarn, hats, socks and cardigans. I love changing my yarn colours to the more seasonal reds, oranges, mustards and browns. There is just something about autumn, I can’t explain it, but it is my favourite time of year. It is still warm enough to be bearable, we still have Christmas and New Year to look forward to, and it just feels cosy somehow. I have made a list of my favourite autumn-inspired crochet patterns. Please make sure to head over to the blogs mentioned, to show the designers some love.

Headband Earwarmer (Free Crochet Pattern)

This is another one of those patterns that I have made many of over the years. Headband earwarmers work up really quickly and look very cute. I think the thing I love the most is that they can be worn over a ponytail. That is something I have struggled with in the past, keeping the girls ears warm when they want to wear their hair up. They don’t like wearing a hat over their ponytail and to be fair, it does look pretty uncomfortable so I can see why they wouldn’t like it. This was our compromise. They get their ponytails and I get to cover their ears so I know they are warm ❤

To make your own headband earwarmer, you will need a 5mm crochet hook and double knit yarn in the colour of your choice. I let my girls choose their favourite colours, so I know there will be no fighting over wearing them. You will also need a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.

This pattern should fit an age 6-10 years or up to about a 21″ head. The finished earwarmer should measure approximately 17.25″ in unstretched length and 3.25″ width.

Baby Hoodie (Crochet Pattern)

With the weather getting colder, I figured that now is the best time to release my baby hoodie pattern. I have been making these little baby hoodies for as long as I can remember and I finally managed to write my pattern down as a PDF. The pattern is currently available in sizes newborn, 0-6m and 6-12m. More sizes will be released when I have had chance to sit down and write up the PDF for them. I love that this baby hoodie is so cute and cosy. The hoodie can be made without the bear ears, but for me bear ears are always a plus, so they always get added.

The hoodie is made using double knit yarn and two different sized crochet hooks. The pattern is easy to follow and is suitable for beginners, although basic knowledge of crochet is needed. I have written the pattern using US terminology.

You can find the baby hoodie pattern in my Etsy shop, alongside my other PDF patterns and a few things I have crocheted and are ready made for sale. Feel free to join us in my Facebook group to see more pictures, get feedback and ask any questions you may have.

Things I Made in August (Roundup)

This month I have been doing a lot of admin, so I haven’t had as much time to crochet as I would’ve liked. I still managed to make lots of cute things though, most of which are up for sale in my Etsy shop.

The first thing I made in August were these very cute baby sandals. I made them for a PDF pattern that I was designing. Both the PDF pattern and the finished sandals are available in my Etsy shop.

I also made some baby booties in three different colours, blue, lilac and beige. I love that these baby booties are so cute and gender neutral. The pattern can be found on my blog and the finished booties can be found on my Etsy shop.

I made lots of earsavers, for use with face masks. I love them because face masks leave me with really sore ears. I gave some to family and friends, and listed some in my Etsy shop. The pattern I used is my own, and is on my blog.

The last things I made in August were varying sizes of baby hoodies, with very cute baby bear ears, for a PDF pattern. The PDF pattern and the finished hoodies can be found in my Etsy shop.

Why not head over to my Facebook group and show us what you have been working on this month. We would love to see it.

Baby Flower Sandals (Crochet Pattern)

I just finished writing up the pattern for these tiny baby flower sandals, available in sizes preemie, newborn and 0-3m. They are so so small. My children are all older now so I always forget how tiny little baby feet are. I love that the flower on the sandals can be changed for whichever design you prefer. I made a daisy pair and a sunflower pair, but there are so many other possibilities. I wanted to make a pair with cherry blossom flowers, but I recently had a massive yarn destash and now I have ran out of pink yarn. I think they would look gorgeous though.

The crochet baby sandals can be made in the double knitting yarn of your choice, I used acrylic yarn because I had plenty on hand but I just received a big order of cotton yarn, in lots of pretty colours, so I am planning on making some in cotton aswell. US terminology is used throughout the pattern, and a basic knowledge of crochet is assumed. It is an easy pattern, suitable for beginners, and instructions are given for some stitches. To make your own baby sandals, you will need a 3mm crochet hook, a 4mm crochet hook, a 5mm crochet hook, 20g beige double knit yarn, 10g white double knit yarn, 10g double knit yarn in your preferred flower colour, a tape measure, a pair of scissors, a yarn needle and two small buttons.

You can find this pattern in my Etsy shop, with my other PDF patterns and things I have crocheted for sale. Feel free to join us in my Facebook group to see more pictures, get feedback and ask any questions you may have.

Baby Bear Beanie (Free Crochet Pattern)

Is there anything cuter than a baby in a baby bear hat? I love how adorable these hats are, especially considering how quick they are to make. This is an easy project so will be perfect for a beginner. The pattern can be used to make a basic beanie aswell, but the bear ears really make the hat for me, so I add them on as many things as possible.

To make your own baby bear hat, you will need a 6mm crochet hook, double knit yarn, a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.

This pattern is for a hat to fit a newborn, with a head circumference of up to 14.5″. At the end of round 3, the hat should measure approximately 4″ in diameter. Please bear in mind that I crochet quite tightly, so you may need to go down a hook size to get the right diameter. Use whichever hook you need to get the correct hat size.

Baby Bear Hat (Free Crochet Pattern)


With a 6mm crochet hook and two strands of double knit yarn held together –

1. make a magic loop, ch2, work 12dcs in loop, join with slst in top of 1st dc, pull centre yarn tail tight to close magic loop (12)

2. (inc row) ch2, turn, work 2dcs in st at base of ch and each st around, join with slst in top of 1st dc (24)

3. (inc row) ch2, turn, work 2dcs in st at base of ch, dc in next st, *2dcs in next st, dc in next st*, repeat from around, join with slst in top of 1st dc (36)

9. ch1, turn, fpdc around 1st st of previous row, *bpdc around next st of previous row, fpdc around next st of previous row*, repeat from *-* around to end, join with slst in top of 1st fpdc

10. bind off and weave in ends

11. make a magic loop, ch2, work 6dcs in loop, pull centre yarn tail tight to close magic loop (6)

12. ch1, work 2scs in each st across, bind off, leaving a long tail to attach ear to hat (12)

13-14. repeat rows 11-12

15. use the long tail left on the ears to attach them to the hat, I like to attach the ears between the 2nd and 4th rows on the hat

Sunflower Table Set Crochet Pattern

Is there anything more summery than a sunflower? I love how bright they are and how they always turn their faces to the sun. This week, the weather has been less than summery so I decided to bring summer inside instead. I absolutely adore how much this table set brightens up our dining table.

I made placemats, coasters, napkins and napkin holders. The inspiration to make this set actually came from the slippers I made last week. The flower on the front is almost but not quite a sunflower, so I decided I wanted to make an actual sunflower. I made the coaster first, then made lots more coasters to go with it. I was actually planning on leaving it at that but then I thought that a placemat would look lovely, to go with the coaster. While I was making the placemat, I decided to make a napkin holder and finally, I thought I may aswell make a napkin to go with it and complete the set. The final product is a full sunflower table set, for use everyday or for parties.

The coaster, placemat and napkin holder can be made in the yarn of your choice, although I would definitely recommend something washable. Cotton yarn, or another natural yarn, should be used for the napkin, to make it absorbent.

With this pattern, you will learn how to make a sunflower coaster, a sunflower placemat, a cotton napkin and a sunflower napkin holder. The pattern is written using US terminology. Basic knowledge of crochet is assumed, however the pattern is suitable for beginners and instructions are given for some stitches. To make this pattern, you will need a 3.5mm crochet hook, a 5mm crochet hook, 60g brown double knit yarn, 60g black double knit yarn, 50g yellow double knit yarn, 50g white cotton double knit yarn, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.

This pattern is available in my Etsy store, where you can also find my handmade crochet clothes and accessories. Feel free to join us in my Facebook group to see more pictures, get feedback and ask any questions you may have.

Crochet Slippers (Free Pattern)

Whenever I get the urge to crochet something, I usually prefer to make something quick and easy. Because of that, I tend to crochet more for babies and children than I do for adults. This week I needed a quick crochet project to give as a gift and I racked my brains to think of something I could make to gift to an adult. I finally remembered some slippers I had made a few years ago, and luckily I had written the pattern down! They are very quick and very easy so perfect for someone like me. I love that they fit so many different sizes aswell so one pattern is all you need to make slippers for most adults. This pattern makes slippers that will fit from a UK size 4 to a UK size 7 (I think that is 6.5 to 9.5 in American shoe sizes and 37 to 40 in European shoe sizes).

To make your own slippers, you will need a 3mm crochet hook, a 5mm crochet hook, some double knit yarn, a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.

Crochet Baby Shorts (Free Pattern)

When my girls were younger, we used to use cloth nappies with them. I used to love making little wool shorties and skirties to go over them, to make sure they stayed dry. After having my son, we decided to go vegan, for various reasons, so little wool shorties were out of the question. I still loved to make little crochet pants and shorties for him, just out of acrylic yarn instead! Today, I want to share my pattern for crochet shorties. They are sized slightly differently for cloth nappies and disposable nappies, with cloth nappies requiring a higher rise (the measurement around the crotch from the front to the back waistband).

This pattern is to fit a newborn, with a waist of up to 15″ and a rise of up to 15″. To make the shorties more snug over a disposable nappy, you could shorten the length of the body by two rows.

To make your own baby shorties, you will need a 5mm crochet hook, a 7mm crochet hook, some double knit yarn, a tape measure, some scissors and a yarn needle.

WAISTBAND:

With a 7mm crochet hook and two strands of DK yarn held together –

1. ch4, sc in 2nd chain from hook and each chain across (3)

2-40. ch1, working in back loops only, sc in each st across (3)

41. taking care not to twist your work, join with a slip stitch under two loops of the first row, this will leave a v shaped opening, which will need stitching up at the end

42. ch1, sc in stitch at base of chain and next 2sts (I counted each row as a stitch), *2scs in next st, sc in next 3sts*, repeat from *-* around to last st, work 2scs in last st, join with slst in 1st sc (50)

43. ch1, turn, sc in each stitch around, join with slst in 1st sc (50)

BODY:

1. change to contrasting yarn if using, ch3, turn, dc in stitch at base of chain and next 7sts, hdc in 5sts, sc in 24sts, hdc in 5sts, dc in 7sts, 2dcs in last stitch, join with slst in top of ch3 (52)

2. ch1, turn, sc2tog, sc around till last 2sts, sc2tog, join with slst in first sc (50)

3. ch3, turn, dc in stitch at base of chain and next 7sts, hdc in 5sts, sc in 24sts, hdc in 5sts, dc in 7sts, 2dcs in last stitch, join with slst in top of ch3 (52)

4-11. repeat rows 2-3

12. ch1, turn, sc2tog, sc around till last 2sts, sc2tog, join with slst in first sc, bind off (50)

GUSSET:

1. with back of st facing, count 3sts to the right of the bind off stitch, ignoring the stitch at the base of the ch, join yarn, ch2, sc in same st and in next 5sts – you want the previous rows bind off to be right in the centre of the gusset (6)

2-8. ch2, turn, sc across

9. bind off, leaving a long tail, stitch the gusset to the middle 6sts on the opposite side of pants, check to make sure both legs have 19 stitches each

LEGS:

1. with back of st facing, join yarn in middle of gusset, ch1, work sc in the side of each row along the gusset and all around, join with slst in 1st sc (29)
