Guy’s Drawstring Bag Free Crochet Pattern

In today’s post you will find the Guy’s Drawstring Bag Free Crochet Pattern.  Have you ever wondered what those guys in your life do with the little things they collect??  

My pattern testers were testing another drawstring bag design for another event and I was kind of shocked when one of my testers told me that her son wanted her to make a drawstring bag for him!  Then, another of my testers told me her hubby and son uses them all the time!

With Father’s Day right around the corner, this would make the perfect gift for him to store his collectibles.  This crochet pattern doesn’t have to made just for the guys, it can be made for the girls as well!

As you can see by my testers’ versions below there are great uses and colors you can use when you give a gift using this bag.  Thank you Kami Jones, Kristen Temple Taylor, and Stacy Secoy for showing the different uses!!

 

 

You can also get the Guy’s Drawstring Bag Crochet Pattern for $1.50 which is 50% off the regular price until May 31, 2022.  You will  Step-by-Step and Video Tutorials inside the crochet pattern.  Get the pattern for $1.50 at my Ravelry Store. No Coupon Code Needed.

Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL

Welcome to my Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL!!  The Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL starts today, May 10th and runs until May 31, 2022.  This is a FREE Crochet-a-Long and we will be making a Throw Size Afghan.

 

 

 

Thank you for your interest in my Mae’s Flowers Crochet Pattern.  This is a project that has been in the works for over 25 years.  My gram started making these flowers for an Afghan back in 1994.  I inherited the Afghan when she passed away about 20 years ago.  It moved from house to house, taken out every once in a while, and I always said I was going to finish it and I have.

I decided I would write out the steps she did and turn it into a crochet pattern.  I took the flowers apart to learn the stitches she used, so I could make my own.  This pattern is dedicated to Gram.  She was a very important part of my life.   I hope you enjoy making the Mae’s Flowers too!  

 

You can now purchase the Mae’s Flower Garden Crochet Pattern for $3 at my Ravelry Store.  Inside the PDF copy of the Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan crochet pattern there are a lot of extra goodies for Right & Left Handed crocheters.

  • 2 Sizes to Choose from – Throw or Lapghan
  • Step-by-Step Picture Tutorials
  • Video Tutorials of Flowers and Assembly

 

There will also be a Contest with Prizes!!  See how you can enter below!!

Throughout the month of May there will be Sneak Peeks of the beautiful WIPs from my testers!  There will be their versions of their Flowers and Afghans!  You will also find out below how YOUR WIPs can be added to my website each week!!

At the end of the Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan CAL I will have a BIG REVEAL!!  I will be revealing the finished versions of mine and my testers’ afghans!  You can even get YOUR versions added to the BIG REVEAL!!

The CAL will be in 3 stages.  I will add the crochet patterns for each stage using the schedule below:

 

May 10-16 
Flower Pattern

May 17-23

The afghan can be made in a solid color or a variety of colors as you like.  The flowers use such a small amount of yarn that you can use up ALL of that Scrap Yarn you have laying around!

I will be having a Contest and Prizes!  The way for you to enter the contest is to share YOUR works in progress each week, by Monday 10p EST.  So be sure to share your WIPs each week, starting Tuesday May 17, 2022 inside my Facebook Group Jo’s Crafty Hook-ers.  Prizes you could WIN will be revealed during Week 2 of the CAL.

Acacia Headband Free Crochet Pattern

Today’s I am sharing with you my Acacia Headband Free Crochet Pattern.  Each year it seems like I learn a new stitch and fall in love with it so much that I design multiple crochet patterns using that stitch.  The Acacia Headband uses the stitch that I recently fell in love with.

The Wattle Stitch is the one I learned last year and fell in love with.  I have used it to design a beanie, a cowl, a skirt, a clutch and now a headband.  Of course I have a couple more in the works.  🙂

You can find the Acacia Headband crochet patterns along with 26 other crochet designers and their new and favorite Spring designs at my Spring into Spring 2022 Roundup.

**********************************************************

I was updating some of my earlier crochet when I came across the stitch I fell in love with when I was first designing, the Tulip Stitch.  I had some beautiful yarn I bought at a fiber fair that I was chomping at the bit to use, so I used that here with my Jaide Wrap. 

I used Custom Yarn by Knitting on the Fringe. (Skein Weight:75g/2.64 oz
Yardage/Meters: 200 meters/217 yards)

 

Materials:
US G Crochet Hook or 4 mm
217 yards of # 2 Fine Yarn or Sports Weight Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Stitches Used/Abbreviations:
dc – double crochet
sc – single crochet
ch – chain
alt ch 2 – alternate chain 2
fsc – foundation single crochet
sk – skip
rem – remaining

Special Stitches:
Shell = (2 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) all in the same stitch.
Foundation Single Crochet – is where you create the starting chain plus a row of single crochet all at one time.

Special Notes:

My yarn was handmade.  With the different weights of 2 Fine Yarn or Sport Weight Yarn it may make your gauge a little different from mine.  You can try going up or down a hook size to meet the gauge.

Video Tutorials:
foundation single crochet – Left Handed
foundation single crochet – Right Handed
alternate chain 2 – Left Handed
alternate chain 2 – Right Handed

Finished Size:  14” x 64”

Pattern Notes:
Pattern is written in U.S. Crochet Terms
beginning chain 3 counts as the 1st dc
alt ch 2 counts as the 1st dc
alt ch 2 takes the place of a double crochet and counts as your 1st dc.  It is used to create a cleaner edge.
Row count is a multiple of 3
Due to different yarn types, the gauge may be off.  Try going up or down a hook size to meet gauge.

Gauge:
US G Crochet Hook or 4 mm
18 st x 8 rows = 4”
6 Shells x 8 Rows = 4”

Gauge Swatch:  4” x 4″

R1:  ch 19, sc in 2nd ch from and each rem st across.  turn (18 sc)

R2:  alt ch 2 (or ch 3) in the 1st st, *sk 2 st, shell in the next st (see instructions above) repeat  from * across until the last 3 st, sk 2 st and dc in the last st.  turn

R3:  alt ch 2 (or ch 3) in the 1st st, shell in the next dc, *sk 4 st, shell in the next st* Repeat from * across until the last dc, dc in the last dc.  turn

R4-R9:  Repeat R2-R3 

 

********************************************************

 

Customizing:

Width: 
To create a wider wrap (short rows) add multiples of 3.  The basic width of a wrap is 14” – 18”

Length:
Use your Height plus 4” – 8” to reach your desired length by continuing to repeat R2 & R3.

4 st x 2 rows = 1”
8 st x 4 rows = 2”
12 st x 6 rows = 3”
16 st x 8 rows = 4”
6 Shells x 8 Rows = 4”

********************************************************

 

 

 

Jaide Wrap Crochet Pattern:

Today I like to share with you my Get Around Face Scrubbies and Washcloths Free Crochet Patterns.

Do you wear makeup?  Does your face not feel clean even after using soap?  Do you spend a lot of money on disposable face cleaning pads?  If you answered YES to any of these questions then these crochet patterns are perfect for you.  The puff stitch used in these crochet patterns adds an extra buffer to help reach your pores and gives your face a nice clean feeling after you use them.  The added bonus is they are made with 100% cotton and are machine washable.  The face scrubbies and washcloths would also make a perfect gift for those women in your life!

Here are some testimonials from my testers:

Kathy Hungerford Paquette:  I enjoyed making the scrubbie and washcloth pattern. It worked up quick and easy.   I used two different colors for mine to match my bathroom.  Kathy was the one who invented the name, Get Around Face Scrubbies and Washcloths Free Crochet Pattern!

Stacy Secoy:  These work up quickly! I think the will make great gifts and sell well at craft fairs!  Thanks for having me test these!
