Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern

Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern

The Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern came to be because I was watching a friend’s dog, Tuxie,  for a few days.  He’s a small dog and he was always shivering. 

So, I decided to make him something to keep him warm and make him more adorable too.  You can crochet the Keyhole Scarf to accessorize your woof-ing dog and make a purr-fect accessory for your cat. 

Tuxie

I love celebrating our pets and showing them as much love and appreciation for them.  The Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern is another new release of mine that will be featured in my 2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop on May 21, 2024.

Me and 15 other fabulous crochet designers are sharing FREE crochet patterns daily they designed just for Pets at my 2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop.

Cream Pop Handbag Crochet Pattern

Cream Pop Handbag Crochet Pattern

The Cream Pop Handbag Crochet Pattern is a design of mine that makes me think time spent as a kid eating ice cream pushups; hot summer days by the pool; picnics on the beach.

The Cream Pop Handbag Crochet Pattern is the perfect accessory to carry all of your essentials when go to the beach, are working on a crochet project, for a trip the gym and so much more!

There is even a little clutch you can make to keep your most important beach items in, like your sunglasses, lip balm, phone and many other smaller essentials.

Caiden Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

Caiden Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Caiden Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern is one of my Handmade Crocheted Creations designs that is near and dear to my heart.  I was so blessed in taking part in the raising of my niece.  She was the 1st baby where I got to listen to every coo and cry; hear her 1st words spoken; watching her 1st steps; and growing up to be a beautiful person inside and out.  

Every stitch, every row, all the trials and tribulations with the design were an outpouring of my love for my niece, her husband and of course her baby.

My niece and her husband had been trying for years to have a baby.  There were many prayers prayed; so many things that they had to endure.  Finally, after almost 10 years of trying they were blessed with a baby boy, Caiden.

Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan

Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan

The Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan was designed with love and appreciation for the people who influence us with our love of crochet and for the legacy they leave behind.

This post contains affiliate links.

In this post, I am sharing a FREE crochet pattern of the Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan.

Story Behind the Design

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!  

 

The FREE crochet pattern of the Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan below is for a Throw Size. I do have a premium copy of the Mae’s Flower Garden Crochet Pattern for $5 at my Ravelry Store.  It contains:

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

 

Crochet Pattern Details

I used a variety of yarns in a variety of colors.  The Mae’s Flowers can be made in solid or contrasting colors.  This crochet pattern is a great way to use up your scrap yarn.

Materials:
2-4 yds of 4 ply Worsted/Aran Weight Yarn
US H Crochet Hook or 5mm
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Abbreviations/Stitches Used:
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
ch = chain
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch
sp = space
rep = repeat
RS = Right Side

Flower Size: 3” x 3”
Flowers Needed:  176

Throw Afghan Size:  48″ x 60″


Notes:
It would be a great idea to weave in your ends as you go.  If you do not, you will spend a long time weaving them in after the afghan is complete
