As the seasons change and the weather gets colder these days, many of us become more and more tempted to enjoy the cosiness of our homes and devote time to our favorite hobbies.

If crocheting is your thing, then you might find inspiration in some of the following projects. They are all free patterns that I have put together and enjoyed over the past few years. I thought it could come in handy to list them in one post.

Enjoy!

Crochet Spring Placemat

I have a confession to make.

I really, really love making placemats.

Tough one, right? I hope you’ll be able to fall asleep after that.

It might all have started a couple of weeks ago when I was making these Easter Placemats – that was real fun.

What really fascinates me when it comes to crocheted placemats might be how easy they are to create – you just go left and right and left and right… while watching your favorite program – and before you notice it, it’s done.

And then I love, love, love the moment when I add the edging and a little decoration – that’s just magical…

If you’d like to make these cute placemats and let everyone enjoy their meals even more then I’ve prepared this how to’ for you:

1. Start by making a very loose (!) chain of 73 stitches.

2. Then crochet DC (double crochet) into each stitch.

3. Continue making 37 rows all together. And the green part is done.

4. The edging is very simple: *5 DC into one stitch, skip one stitch, 1 SC (single crochet), skip one stitch* … and repeat this along the edge up to the corner.

5. This is how I made the corners: after you’ve done the last ‘5 DC’ before the corner, skip one stitch and then crochet 1DC – 1TC (triple crochet) – 1 DC into the corner stitch, slip one stitch and continue as in the step 4.

6. Now the lovely flower – this one is quite easy too:

Row 1: Chain 8

Row 2: Chain 2, 17 DC, join with slip stitch

Row 3: *Chain 6, skip 3 stitches, SC* – repeat this 6 times

Row 4: around each petal crochet: *DC – DC – DC – CH – DC – DC – DC – SC* – repeat 6 times and finish off.

7. For the cute swirly ornaments I made two chains of 40 stitches and sewed them (along with the flower) into place.

Cute, ha?

I hope the things I’ve just written make at least a little sense.

And of course – Enjoy, dear friends!

Hello!

I am sending you my warmest greetings from the spoon… (Can you see me waving at you?)

Anyway, I’ve just finished crocheting this placemat.

More precisely, it is an Easter placemat (… and I only hope it resembles an egg).

And yes, there are two of them… because there are two of us who share the table.

My boyfriend grins slightly when I serve him food these days…

Nevertheless, I think he is slowly getting used to my colorful Spring ‘n Easter worshiping mania.

In case someone arrives to visit, they will have to dine like this too – no matter how hard they might fight, kick or scream – there’s just no way to escape my Easter placemats.

If you feel like it, you can make these cuties too.

I’ve prepared the pattern for you.

It’s quite easy and it will provide you with the sweet, precious time to relax and watch you favorite programs without feeling guilty for just sitting and staring at the TV screen (whoops… somebody has just revealed her huge secret… many Martha Stewart shows have been watched here recently).

This is the pattern:
