Magnolia Market Bag Crochet Pattern

Summer time means trips to the farmers market, or to the library with the kids, and hopefully more crochet time! And what do you need for all of that?! A bag! The Magnolia Market Bag is easy to make, easy to customize to your needs, and is just plain beautiful!

I made mine with the Caron Cotton Cakes from Michael’s! It turned out even better than I expected! Caron Cotton Cakes are a worsted weight self striping yarn that is just perfect for this bag! You can also use any other worsted weight cotton yarn you’d like!

Pattern Notes

Starting lch does not count as first stitch.

You can do your sweater in any color combo you like or in one solid color. I chose to do a color block combo. I did the first two colors for 12 rows each and the last color for 24 rows.

Rectangles are worked from the top down, so place colors accordingly if working with multiple colors.

Pattern is written in size XS with additional sizes in parentheses, with stitch count for all sizes in parentheses at the end of each row.

Stitches Needed & Abbreviations

st(s)- stitch(es)

ch-chain(s)

lch- long chain (pull up loop the length of a dc and then ch 1)

sc- single crochet

dc- double crochet

Rectangle (Make 2)

Ch 58 (65, 72, 79, 86, 93)

Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook and across. (56, 63, 70, 77, 84, 91)

Row 2: Lch, turn, 1 dc in each st across. (56, 63, 70, 77, 84, 91)

Repeat row 2 until rectangle is 24” or desired length. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Sewing Rectangles Together

stash buster sweater

Take your two rectangles and lay them on top of each other.

Pin where you plan to sew to make it easier to sew together. Pin and sew the top, leaving a 20” around hole in the middle for your head to go through (10” laid flat). For the sides, leave at least 12 rows on the top unsewn for your armholes and sew the rest of the way down until you get to the last 4 rows. Leave those unsewn.

Armhole Trim

Join yarn to underarm of armhole, facing the right side of your sweater. Ch 1 and sc evenly around the armhole, keeping track of the number of stitches you do. Join to 1st st.

Cleopatra Tank Crochet Pattern

Cleopatra Tank

So, funny story, the Cleopatra Tank was not something I had planned to make. I usually have a running list of designs I have ideas for and want to create but the Cleopatra was not one of them. I sat down with my yarn, intending to design a completely different top! Instead I came up with this design and fell head over heels in love with it! I love how our minds create sometimes! Don’t you?

The Cleopatra Tank is made with lightweight DK yarn. The pattern comes in both children’s sizes and adult sizes, so you don’t have to purchase two patterns. It is versatile and customizable. I made the one pictured and another with the top part in black and the bottom in gray. Many of my testers also made this in self-striping yarn! You can totally make it your own style!

lacy scarf

Much of the world is still experiencing some very cold weather, but I know much of the world is also very ready for spring! Today I’m releasing my first Spring 2018 crochet pattern, the Lacy Scarf!

The Lacy Scarf is super versatile! It can be made in sport or DK weight yarn, and the width and length can be adjust. It has a light, lacy look to it but uses very simple stitch combos to create that elegant look!

I used Knit Picks Brava Sport yarn in the colorway Seashell to create the Lacy Scarf sample pictured above. I absolutely love Brava Sport because it is so durable, yet soft! It is 100% acrylic and is machine washable! I use this yarn for quite a few of my designs and I highly recommend it!

Camden Cowl Crochet Pattern

camden cowl

I’m so excited to share my latest crochet pattern release with you today! The Camden Cowl is the matching cowl to the Camden Hat! This set is great for kids and adults alike Making the set is just as fun as wearing it! 

Both the Camden Hat and the cowl use a technique called Fair Isle Crochet. You basically use two colors to create a picture with your yarn. But instead of working over you unused yarn, like tapestry crochet, you carry the unused yarn behind your work.

Both patterns come with written instructions, photo tutorials, links to video tutorials, and a chart to follow. So even if you’ve never tried it before, you can master Fair Isle Crochet with these patterns!

I used Red Heart Soft yarn from Micheal’s Stores to create the Camden Cowl. You can use any worsted weight yarn you like, and the color possibilities are endless! What color combo would you use to create yours?
