Inspired by Taylor, Free Beret/Tam Pattern

I love this new design from Kathy! Check it out! It is a fabulous Free Crochet Pattern!

ELK Studio - Handcrafted Crochet Designs

I wanted to thank everyone for hanging out with me this year by wrapping it up with another free pattern.  I’ve posted pictures of my friend Taylor and her daughter wearing matching hats on my ELK Studio Facebook page, and it’s been a big hit.  Taylor and I (along with some other friends) took a trip this past April to a women’s convention in Boston.  Taylor found a cute knitted hat but instead of buying it, she asked if I could make her one for this upcoming winter.

I really appreciate my friends having enough confidence in me to come up with my design and pattern without any restrictions.  The only thing she wanted was a bow which wasn’t a problem.  Here is a picture of my beautiful friend, Taylor.

As I always try to do, I worked this hat up using different yarns.  I had never tried Bernat…

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – the Crochet Version!

Pattern Paradise

Fireplace-with-stockingsWith some of my favorite designers, projects and sites in mind, here is my crochet version of the classic poem.  I hope it makes you smile!  ~Maria~

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a Love Handle Crochet Hook was hooking, not even this mouse.
The Perfectly Plaid Stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Candy Cane Hats danced in their heads.
And mama in her Offshore Beanie, and I in my Paisley Cap, Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from under the Granny Stripes Blanket to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the…

Free Basketweave Boot Cuff Pattern!

I really love this design from Kathy 🙂 SO pretty! Rhondda


Free Basketweave Boot Cuff Pattern!.

I love my Teddy!

This is adorable and there is an English Translation (as well as the German) “Pattern For Teddy” just above the “Share this” bar is the English link 🙂


…von all den schönen und gefühlvollen Zeugnissen menschlicher Liebe, Phantasie und Geschick habe ich den Teddybären am liebsten. L. Mullins (Professor of Psychology)

IMG_6063… und für mich ist es ein noch größerer Ausdruck von Liebe, Phantasie und Geschick, wenn wir einen Teddy häkeln und ihn dann an die Menschen, die wir lieben, verschenken!

Die Anleitung ist diesmal mit einigen wenigen “Symbolen” geschrieben. Ich habe sie für meinen Häkelclub erstellt. Sie ist einfach zu lesen und nur anfangs etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Ich habe in Griechenland noch keine Anleitungen für Amigurumi entdeckt. Deshalb habe ich mir für die Frauen in unserem Club diese Häkelschrift ausgedacht – auch um ihnen den Einstieg in die Häkelei von Amigurumi zu erleichtern. Alle griechischen Wörter habe ich selbstverständlich ins Deutsche übersetzt.

Anleitung für den Teddy

ofall the beautifulandemotionalthings of love, imagination and skill, the teddy bear is my favorite.

Silly little Angel!

You are going to love this one!!


Hope you all remember little angry Angel I posted photo of few weeks ago. Dear Debi B. asked to try the pattern out. And am glad she has helped me with it. Thank you Debi!

I came out with an Angel pattern after Bonnie B. asked me to create and Angel she could make and donate to cancer ill patients in local hospital, to cheer them up and brighten their day.

That is how silly little attitude Angel came to life.

Here is a photo of two of them. Angels-AmigurumiBB

Wing pattern is not mine. Found it long time ago and used it here. If one knows the original designer and owner of the wing pattern, let me know so can give her deserved credit.

Think I better get on with pattern, as I have one (two) more patterns to share today.

Angel is made in No.10 thread and 1,50 mm…

The Runaway Snowman

What a handsome little fellow! Check out this amazing and adorable free crochet pattern from Tales of Twisted Fibers 🙂

Tales of Twisted Fibers

Runaway Snowman Amigurumi - Tales of Twisted FibersLast time, the first rays of the sun heralding the end of winter had done it for him. From a handsome snowman adored by the neighborhood children, he had been reduced to slush, trampled on by practically everyone. One nasty kid had even kicked his hat away! It was at that point he had made up his mind that next time he’d run away to North Pole where that spoil sport sun would never be able to melt him.

And that’s exactly what he did this time. The moment people started building him, our little hero started working on his master plan. First, he focused on figuring out where he could find a pair of snow boots. That one was easy—out on the patio of that yellow house. It was a slightly old pair, but it would get the job done.

His next move was to wait patiently until everyone…
