Here is some stuff I have been working on. This is my first post, I’ve been lurking the past couple of weeks.

I have to get a christmas gift for my 13-year old cousin Arnaud, but I have no idea what to give him. Any crochet ideas for boys?

This is a shawl I’m working on. This is just my first try at the pattern, if it turns out as fabulous as I hope it will, I’ll make one for my grandma too. It’s really elegant and I hope I finish soon.

This is one of the basic birds I made. It’s hot hot pink, not as pale as pictured. I’m going to give it to my cousin this Christmas because he learned me to crochet when I visited my family in Argentina. (yes, a guy!)

This is my favourite piece! A casse

tte cover I designed myself. the sides were the difficult part. It’s a really bright red, I don’t think the picture shows that enough. The button is a blue plastic ship ūüôā It’s for a tape trade I’m doing with some friends. My tape is bird themed.

Thanks for looking!

Getting into the Christmassy spirit, I just finished making this poinsettia:

crocheted poinsettia

The finished piece is about 6.5″ in diameter. I also designed a simpler version with only one row of petals and smaller leaves. I can write up and post the patterns for both, if anyone is interested?

 UPDATE: The pattern is finished! http://www.planetjune.com/blog/free-crochet-patterns/poinsettia/

My First Post

Hi, everyone. This is my first time posting here, although I’ve been crocheting like a mad-woman lately, trying to get things made for the holidays.

So far, I have a stocking for my daughter, done in purple at her request:

Stocking 2

I also have a traditional red stocking for the new baby in the family, as well as a hi-top shoes & “basketball” gift set. (I was going to put black lines on the ball so it’d look like a basketball, but they looked tacky, so I took them out.) The patterns for the booties & ball came from past issues of Crochet Today magazine.

Crocheted Red Stocking


I’ll be crocheting at least two more stockings in the near future. I also have plans to make a sweater/coat, a adult afghan, and some baby items for the next new addition that will arrive in March, among a lot of other things.

My Little Monster

little monster

Here is my last Halloween project.¬† This is my little monster made¬†from a pattern I purchased from Emily¬†Millers Emporium on Etsy.¬† It was actually¬† for a ghost¬†but she suggested getting creative and making a monster from the same basic shape. So I did. Didn’t get time to make a ghost. ¬†I have started on some things for Christmas(not all¬†crochet) but nothing¬†ready to post here.¬† Was bound and determined to finish what little I was doing for Halloween before jumping into Christmas.¬† Now¬† I can go for it!

Candy Corn Man


Sorry, no Christmas yet.¬† Hope that’s Ok.¬† But I’m working on some things. Here’s my little Candy Corn Man courtesy of¬† a pattern I got from Stormycrochet at Etsy. I thought he was so cute so I made one of him for my kids also.¬† Since they are fairly recent homeowners they haven’t had time to accumulate¬† yet.¬† I just am helping them along.¬† I am enjoying the little amigurumis because they give some quick gratification of finishing something.¬† I have a little monster that I’m just finishing up so I’ll get a pic posted here for you to see.¬† Then on to Christmas.

I almost never crochet things for myself. I’ve gotten most of my experience by doing little gifts for other people. But for this topic, I decided a little Christmas present for myself would be a cute little rag rug to go underneath our piano. I used the pattern found on the sidebar here. One thing that I am learning is that no matter how consistent the sizes of my stitches are, the type of material makes a big difference, too. The coral pink rows on this rug are made from a thick knit top, so it changed the size of the stitch. But hey, at least I’m learning something! ūüėÄ

New theme!

The new theme is here – welcome to the Christmas Crochet Along!

Remember this theme is very broad – you can crochet Christmas-related items (e.g. snowflakes, tree ornaments) or Christmas gifts for others (e.g. anything crocheted) or even a gift for yourself. There are lots of pattern ideas in the sidebar, and if you find any other great free patterns, please send them to me (craft@planetjune.com) and I’ll add them to the list.

Enjoy the new theme!
