10 Easy Free Crochet Patterns from Nicki’s Homemade Crafts
Interview with Nicole of Nicki’s Homemade Crafts
Katie: So, I always like to start by asking: how did you learn to crochet?
Nicole: It was about 3-4 years ago when i taught myself how to crochet. I already know how to knit, as my grandma taught me when I was little. But I remember seeing some beautiful granny squares pop up on my Facebook page and they were from The Patchwork Heart.
I knew I had some crochet hooks and some yarn at home. So, I taught myself using several YouTube channels. I got really good at it really fast and wanted to write my own patterns. So I started my blog in Summer/Fall of 2016.
10 Free Easy Crochet Patterns from Nicki’s Homemade Crafts
This gorgeous beanie uses the waistcoat stitch and a really cute and simple color work pattern to create such a neat design! It really does look just like knit-I can see why this is one of Nicki’s favorite stitches!
This cute and quick project uses an interesting stitch texture, the Waffle Stitch, to create a really cute and cozy neckwarmer! There’s a fabulous video tutorial included, so I know you’ll be able to crochet this with no trouble at all!
The Sunset Striped Hat is such a great, easy beanie to make! Nicki used one of my absolute favorite yarns, Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, to take this classic, simple design to the next level! I love that Nicki’s projects are BOTH beautiful and easy to make. This would be a great beginner project to start with.
This giant pillow case makes such a bold statement! I would love to have one on my couch or in my bedroom. The bold, chunky yarn look is so hot right now, and this is the perfect way to incorporate that into your home decor!
This gorgeous crochet project bag is so practical for crocheting on the go! This amazing bag takes just one Caron Big Cake. There’s a free Crochet Along for this bag starting in Nicki’s Facebook Group, so you should come join us! I’m really excited to make mine- I have a Caron Cake in Cherry Chip picked out to pair with some plain yarn for the bottom and strap of the bag.
The Denim Blues hat is such a great free easy crochet project. You’ll learn a new stitch technique, the Linked Double Crochet, but Nicki’s YouTube Videos are so great and easy to crochet along with that you’ll feel like a pro in just a round or two.
This gorgeous spa crochet set is such a great, easy crochet project to make for gifting! I know I always like adding something homemade into my gifts, and these are just perfect! (I might even gift some to myself for my birthday coming up!)
This gorgeous fringed shoulder bag is so adorable! I am in LOVE with fringe right now (case in point), and this is a perfect size! The flower is just the right finishing touch, too!
This Hazel Chevron Scarf makes such a great fall or winter accessory! Using gorgeous, self-striping yarn lets the simple chevron pattern really shine! Plus, it’s designed in a bulky weight, which means your scarf will work up super quickly! What could be better?
I absolutely had to include this beautiful lightweight cowl scarf! Filet crochet is such an amazing easy crochet technique to add style and lightness to your crochet items. I used a similar technique to edge my favorite vest. I would love to wear this scarf, and I think it would look so cute. I could even wear it in Florida weather!
