Colorful jewelry is certainly all the rage, and I love the idea of matching jewelry to an outfit, so knowing how to make some super simple crocheted beaded necklaces certainly comes in handy right about now! Just grab some beads, yarn or string, and a crochet hook, and you're good to go!
Looking for a crochet sweater pattern for a sweet girl in your life? A crochet sweater pattern that perhaps is made in one piece, has simple enough instructions and results in a cozy sweater that also has lots of style? Oh and don't forget can be made relatively quickly! Look no further, I found a great pattern that you can crochet as is, or adapt, as I did for a slightly different look.
A lacy crocheted cape could be the greatest gift for a little girl in your life, or possibly even part of a fun costume for someone near and dear, which is how this little cape was born! Last Purim as we brainstormed over costume ideas we came up with the idea of canary, creativejewishmom style of course. Meaning with lots of color and handmade details and some stretching of our abilities as well!
A crocheted beanie can be decorated in so many fun ways to use as part of a costume or to make cold weather dressing a little bit fun. Last Purim I crocheted a canary costume for my daughter and somehow did not have time to share it with you, not to mention that the timing just wasn't quite right. So I now introduce my crocheted canary beanie!
I'll admit, I actually made these starry night crocheted star garlands as gifts for my kids this past Chanukah, but they happen to look perfect for summer decorations, or maybe even as decorations to make now for the Succah! This is the perfect little project to use up odds and ends of yarn, and of course the stars can be easily crocheted on the go, making this also a great little take-along project!
Looking for a not so difficult and quick to crochet sweater for a sweet girl in your life? I'd recommend this Bebop Cardi from Lion Brand, as I made it in about two nights and it's the perfect little cropped sweater for any wardrobe, and easily spans the seasons.
A little over a year ago I crocheted this fabulous corset style vest for my daughter, only my version in pink. I never got around to photographing it and sharing it with you, and now it's too small on her! So when I came across the pattern once again today, I figured I'd share it with you, using the original photos from the pattern's designer.
The truth is, I didn't just whip up this crocheted granny square vest, I actually made it two years ago! I guess it was on the big side, because my 8 year old daughter is wearing it now as a dressy winter outfit, with black velvet and rhinestones, and it looks great! And guess what, this is very simple to make, especially if you go with chunky yarn, and then it's quick too! If you'd like to make matching vests for say, three little girls in various sizes, I'd say it's do-able. If you're not great at finishing things quickly, so use cotton and you'll have them for spring! One could make something like this for boys and girls alike, but somehow even in these masculine colors this looks too girlish for my boys to wear.
I'm just going to give you rough directions, so that you can use any yarn or hook size that you'd like to. I used solid black and a flecked grey/white chunky yarn, a combo that's interesting and can be elegant.
