Free Pattern: Zombie Bunny

Do you guys still remember this zombie bunny? I meant to publish the pattern here over a year ago, sorted through the photos and everything, and then comlpetely forgot about it. But then I got a message on Ravelry a few days ago, reminding me I need to actually write down and publish it, seeing as it's useless sitting in a folder on my computer somewhere.

I am making an effort to be better at this organizing thing, I promise, but I don't think I'll ever be brilliant at it :) My brain just doesn't want to hold on to little details like stuff that needs to get done or deadlines or names or my anniversary. But enough rambling, here's the pattern:

Free pattern - Small long-legged cat

I took my bunny pattern and turned it into this little cat. The body pattern is the same, I only changed the ears and tail. I think it would also work as a teddy bear, so keep an eye out for another pattern in a couple of weeks.

This is a great pattern to try if you are new to toy making - it's not difficult to crochet and doesn't take too long, but does include a few different techniques, so you can learn all the basics of amigurumi making.

Free Pattern: Easter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner, so I thought I would look over the egg pattern and post it here again. I made simple pastel colored eggs, but you can let your imagination roam free and decorate yours with stripes, embroidery, beads, ribbons, buttons, felt - the ideas are endless. If you need some inspiration, take a look at the projects page on Ravelry.

Or you can turn them into cute rabbits and chicks like Elena did. She was kind enough to share her modification on her blog.

Free Pattern: Small Christmas Elf

Free crochet pattern: Small Christmas Elf // Kristi Tullus (

Last year I wrote patterns for Christmas elves, but they are quite detailed and take a bit of time to make. And since I know December is the busiest time for all crafters, I thought this year I would make a little elf doll that is smaller and simpler - perfect as a last minute present or if you need to work up a whole bunch.

They are not complicated to crochet, but do include some small details, which can be a bit fiddly to make. But if you have some patience and enjoy working on small details, it's right up your alley. Happy crocheting!

Crocheted Star Ornaments

I'm completely in love with all the intricate and delicate and oh so beautiful crocheted snowflakes I keep seeing everywhere. There are tons and tons of gorgeous patterns out there, I have gathered a few on my Pinterest board, if you care to take a look. Every year I plan to make a bunch and every year I leave it too late and every year I think "Next year!"

If you're like me, you may want to try something simpler, like these crocheted stars I found on One Dog Woof. They are so beautiful and Christmassy, but take a lot less time to make. Also, these look equally nice made with any weight yarn, even the bulkier ones, so they are definitely a better option for beginner crocheters who might be intimidated by yarn that looks more like sewing thread and a hook you have to look through a magnifier to make sure you haven't picked up a needle, which the snowflake patterns call for.
