Happy Crochet Month!! Spring Free Crochet Pattern Round-up and More!

This morning I woke up and had to make some phone calls to Miss M’s doctor and dentist to get her paperwork for school! Yes, I said school! On Friday I will be signing her up for Transitional Kindergarten (It would have been Kindergarten but she will have to wait another year for that due to the cut off changes). She is very excited… I am not so much. I can’t believe she will be 5 in about 6 months. That means her sister, Miss S, will be be turning 3 in one month! Eeek!!

Enough of the crazy Mom talk about how fast her kids are growing up… lets talk about what else is going on. Happy Crochet Month!

What a great time to be a crocheter! The weather is starting to get a little more on the Spring side with some elevated temps (although it been kind of cold here… mid to high 60’s here in SoCal). This is the time when we should start making all of our spring projects! And what a great way to celebrate crochet month then with Sweet Potatoe 3 Patterns!

To celebrate Crochet month and to get you pumped for Spring I decided to put together a list of 5 Free Crochet Patterns for Spring!

1. Love the Blue Bird’s Crochet Spring Bunnies – These little bunnies are so cute! I just love their little tails! These bunnies can be used for all kinds of things like embelishments on hats and garland! They can be made in any color combination so the possibilities are endless!

2. Cre8tion Crochet’s Lightweight Garden Hat – I just love how airy this hat is perfect for a day in the garden, dressing up for Easter or celebrating Mother’s Day! The flowers on the side are perfect embellishments that finish it off!

3. Light & Airy Poncho Designed by Eleanor Shnier – Can’t you just see yourself wrapped up in this on a spring day? I would totally rock this at the beach over my bathing suit too!

4. Jo’s Crochet Flower Garland – This pattern comes all the way from Germany! When I saw this pattern I wanted to make a bunch of it and hang it in my girls room! Their room is in pinks, purples and greens. I can also see this done up in different colors and used as a spring garland in my living room!

5. My Merry Messy Lifes’ Crochet Seed Stitch Purse – How cute would a little girl look carrying one of these for Easter Sunday?! Or maybe even while hunting for eggs?! Oh my gosh it’s so cute and can be made in any color combo!

Pattern Test for Sweet Potato 3 Patterns – 04

This little pattern test was for the larger sizes of Christine’s NICU Challenge premie pattern. This hat is just so adorable and perfect for the holiday season! It’s a very quick one to work up since you work it as a flat piece and then stitch it together to make the hat. She gives you two different ways to do the top part of the hat too! Love when hats come with options!

 

Little Miss S actually wanted to model this one for me! I was pleasantly shocked…. I should have know there was a catch though. She had to have her tongue out! Ha!

You can get this super fun hat using the following links!

Textured Hat & Scarf Set

I have been working on this project for awhile because other projects kept coming up, but once I got into it, it really works up fast. Sweet Potato 3 Patterns did an awesome job with the texture on this set, I just LOVE it! Perfect for any little boy (or older one too since the pattern goes from Toddlers to Adults). She created the set with the perfect amount of stripes on it to create the right amount of detail to go with the texture. To work up this pattern you just need to know simple crochet stitches like Single Crochet (sc) and Half Double Crochet (hdc).

I can definitely see myself making more of these sets (especially since the majority of my family lives on the East Coast. hehehe).
