Tassel Slip-on Slippers Crochet Pattern

You know how some days you’re just feeling a little indulgent?  It was on one of those exact days that the idea for these ultra plush Tassel Slip-On Slippers was born.

I’m one of those people who’s always cold, so I appreciate a good slipper.  I wanted to create a slipper that would be both super cozy, and also look modern and elegant.

These slippers are a perfect combination of boho and modern style.  They’re worked up in single crochet so not only are they a fast crochet, but they’re also an easy one.

I used Cascade 220 Superwash for these slippers and it’s the perfect yarn for this project.  Cascade 220 is 100% wool, so you know you’re working with an all-natural, top quality yarn.

Its wool fibers lend this yarn plenty of durability and warmth, which is perfect for these slippers.  

Plus, it’s super affordable and comes in a wide range of colors so you can make your slippers just as unique as you are.

I used navy to give my Tassel Slippers a little Colonial vibe, but you can use any color you’d like.

Modern Tea Towel Set Crochet Pattern

Modern Tea Towel Set Crochet Pattern

If you’re in need of a good housewarming gift, then this Modern Tea Towel Set is the perfect pattern for you.

I was looking for a good gift to give a friend for her home that would be thoughtful but also wouldn’t be too time-consuming.

Thus, the Modern Tea Towel Set was born.  

It uses the spider stitch to give these towels a sturdy texture, and the color-blocked striping gives them a modern flair.  

These towels are so cute and they look great hanging in the kitchen.

They’re made with Cascade Avalon a blend of 50% cotton, 50% acrylic so it’s easy to care for and is machine wash and dryer safe, which is a must for a kitchen towel.
  
Cascade Avalon is a worsted weight yarn and is perfect for highlighting the great stitch definition of the Spider stitch while remaining breathable and soft.

I used a combination of beige, red, and pink, but these towels can be customized in any color palette.

Color Block Bag Crochet Pattern

| Crafts & DIY, Crochet

This color block bag is small and convenient to carry around, while still being roomy enough to fit all of your essentials. #crochetbag #crochetpattern #crochetlove #crochetaddictColor Block Bag Crochet Pattern

Lately, I’ve found myself becoming more and more obsessed with color blocking.  It looks so modern and is a great way for me to combine colors in my patterns.

Since I’ve been on the color block bandwagon, I was inspired to make this adorable Color Block Bag. I absolutely love making accessories because they’re the perfect way to punch up any outfit, and what better way to combine my love of color and accessories than with this little bag?

This bag is the perfect size for an everyday bag.  It’s small and convenient to carry around, while still being roomy enough to fit all of your essentials.  I’ve pretty much replaced my crossbody bag with this one as of late.

I chose a soft, summery yellow and paired with gray gradients for my color blocking.  It reminds me of a bumble bee. I decided to use Cascade Ultra Pima yarn for this project because it’s a wonderfully soft cotton yarn that is very easy to work with and is a really great price point. And good news! I’ve partnered with local yarn stores to put together a kit for this pattern. Get The Kit Here.

Every kit includes the digital PDF pattern for the Fringe Cardigan, plus all of the yarn you need to bring this project to life. You can feel good about your purchase because you’re supporting a small business who is passionate about crochet. I love supporting other makers, and it’s great to be a part of such a supportive community. You can get the kit here. This is a great pattern to make with your kids or friends.  It’s an easy pattern that uses single crochet and the Suzette stitch for simplicity mixed with a gorgeous pop of texture.
