Can you believe it’s already MAY???
I hope you have been enjoying some extra crochet time like me (although, if you are one of the amazing souls who has been working this whole time to keep the world running, THANK YOU!
You deserve a crochet break even more than the rest of us.)
With Mother’s Day around the corner and many of us still limited with the yarn we can buy, I wanted to put together a helpful list of patterns you can make for gifts with less yarn.
I asked some other designers to share with me their patterns that are FREE
and work up quick. They reached out to me with some unique and beautiful ideas that I hope will be flying off your hooks this week in time for Mother’s Day. These area all great for spring and summer gifts as well.
Chapstick holder keychain
This pattern by Afghans by Aftan IS SUCH a cute idea! You can use up any little balls of yarn you have leftover and give someone a great way to keep their chapstick/lip gloss always within reach.
Pocket Wall Hanging Organizer
Ooooh how cute is this wall hanger by Day’s Crochet! Aaand it’s a Youtube video so you can just push play and follow along.
Gnome Wine Bottle Topper
So many moms would be thrilled with this cutie by Twisted Knot Crochet atop a new bottle of their favorite wine! Grab the pattern on Ravelry here.
Luxe Spa Headband
I can’t wait til the spas and salons can reopen where I live, and maybe your special mama needs to create a Spa-At-Home day. This headband is a great addition to a goodie basket of things to spoil her. Grab the pattern by Through the Loop now.
Crochet Plant Hanger
I know I have been spending a little extra time making my home cozy, including adding some plants around my house. This plant hanger pattern by Sun and Stitch is gorgeous and would look great with a new planty gift inside!
Farmhouse Inspired Cotton Coasters
I love the simple elegance of this coaster pattern by Creating Me. How cute would these be in four colors that match your special mama’s decor?
Magic Cup Carpet Mug Rugs
This pattern is is from yours truly at Crochet Boss – I was inspired by hand-tied rugs to create this bumpy texture. This mug rug/cup carpet looks great in any yarn and has some fringe benefits. 😉
(I couldn’t help myself)
One Skein Wonder Cowl LITE
Maybe your special mama lives somewhere where it’s still a little breezy? This lite cowl pattern by Bella’s Custom Crochets is made with DK yarn and is perfect to keep warm on those brisk morning jobs or trips to the farmers’ market.
Sunny Day Placemat
Oh how sweet is this placemat crochet pattern by Stacy’s Stitches? I’m envisioning a great Mother’s Day brunch with these gorgeous settings!
Mother's Day Cactus
So cuuuuuute! Whip up one of these cacti real fast and put it in any container (the Dollar Tree has a lot of fun ones!) Thanks to the With Alex Blog for this pattern.
The Farm Market Bag
What a great gift for the Market Shopper you love. The mesh style means this works up FAST! Head over to CarlieFlo for the pattern.
Carnation Coaster Set
Who doesn’t need a set of coasters for every season? This pattern by Knotty Gurl Crochet is a great way to show off little bits of beautiful yarn you have leftover.
Ribbed Edge Dishcloth
I love cotton dishcloths because you can throw them in the wash and dryer. The ribbed edging on these makes them so beautiful. Thanks to A Fox in the Fabric for this pattern.
How darling is this zipper pouch pattern by Ned and Mimi. Everyone needs another cute pouch to hold all the little treasures!
I keep meaning to get in the crochet earring game. These delightful crochet sunburst earrings by You Should Craft will get me going! This is another Youtube video for you visual learners.
Unicorn Coffee Sleeve
I’m going to be honest with you – I’ve STILL not tried Tunisian crochet (I’m scared,) but this texture makes me want to go for it. If the mama you love lives where it is chillier, work up this gorgeous pattern by One Little Hook.
Bobble Ear Warmer
I saw this ear warmer on Instagram and can’t wait to make one – give me all the bobbles! Grab the pattern by Avery Lane Creations.
