Leaf Assortment Scarf by Wiam’s Crafts

There’s not much that I don’t like about this crocheted scarf! From the great photos of the final project, to the colour of yarn chosen, to the detail of the pattern with tons of how-to photos! Not only is the pattern written out in the standard style, but the author of the blog included a crochet chart if that’s how you prefer to read patterns. Or let’s be honest. Not everyone speaks English. A crochet chart helps to solve that problem.

If you want to start crocheting your own version of this delightful scarf, here’s the link to get you there – Leaf Assortment Scarf.

If you want to add to the leaf assortment collection, there is also a headband with the same motif, and as the date of publication of my post, the matching hat is on it’s way!

Don’t miss out on all the other great crochet and knitting patterns on this site! Scroll down the page and past the comments to see a number of other popular patterns that are available.

Crochet Washcloths – 3 Free Textured Patterns

Crochet washcloth pattern

Who could use more washcloths? Let’s be honest, who couldn’t.

These wonderful and easy to make crochet dishcloths are just what you need to make if you’re looking for something simple and repetitive to occupy your mind while watching TV or binging the latest series on Netflix. I’m partial to Indian Matchmaking right now myself 🥰

As the title and photos suggest, there are three different versions of this washcloth available on the Hands Yarn Hook website, all on one page which makes it even easier to navigate. This link will take you to the page: Crochet Washcloths – 3 Free Textured Patterns

Healing Granny Ripple Crochet Blanket Pattern

Everyone likes to have a nice blanket or afghan to cuddle under on those chilly winter days or cool rainy nights. This free crochet afghan pattern is available in six standard sizes, which is great because what one person would like isn’t necessary the same for everyone. And let’s be honest…not everyone has the patience or desire to crochet a blanket the size of a king size bed when a lap blanket will suffice. I am not a bedspread of any size blanket crocheter. Just saying.

All of the pattern sizes were test crocheted so there should be no problem in stitch counts when making it. Though the designer used Caron Big Cakes to make her version, I’m certain that any worsted weight yarn colour combinations will work. The Caron Cakes and any other self striping yarn would work and result in having less ends to sew in. Standard skeins would also be ok, but the again…sewing in ends may get tedious.

On the website page 👉🏽 Healing Granny Ripple Crochet Blanket Pattern 👈🏽 there is both the standard written out crochet pattern. Further down the page, there is also a crochet chart if that is what you would prefer.

Excellent Blogs You Should Read

knitting pattern watermelon slippers

As a blogger and pattern creator myself, I always have a soft spot for my fellow online posters of great patterns. I think there is something to be said for folks that go out of their way to design a pattern, a ton of work btw, and then give it away for free! So here is my latest shoutout to those I’ve found on the “intertubes” that deserve a a few extra page visits, views, likes and shares thrown their way.


Watermelon Chunky Slippers

These are some super cute slippers! Designed to fit both adults and children, you can read this pattern in full on the blog here. And did I mention, it’s free 😉

Kreisel Fingerless Gloves

I’ve always been a fan of crocheted mittens of any style, but I REALLY like the looks of these. I’m a fan of both the design and the colour. Bit of a sucker for the cooler shades… You can read the pattern on the blog here.

Annabelle by DROPS Design

I’m always so impressed by the number of patterns available at this site and love these crocheted slippers! You can read the pattern for this lovely design here.

Ombre Basket Pattern

I actually like this purse/basket so much that I’m going to share this one again. I did once with another website I was running, but that’s a story for another day. The basket is going to turn out based entirely on the yarn colour selections. I know that the yarn cakes are really popular right now but the colour changes may not be short enough to get this fabulous colour transition. But enough on my views, get to making this now! Read the pattern here.

This is a great project for anyone! If you’re learning how to crochet or even if you’re an experienced crocheter (is that even a word) you’ll find the final product super useful. I have one sitting by my kitchen sink right now. And it was from a fellow crocheter (still not sure if that’s a word 🤔). I’m including the how to video and the link where you can read the pattern online – The Best Kitchen Scrubbie
