George, the Giant Bunny!

I just received an email from Premier Yarns with some wonderful FREE patterns. I just had to share George, the Giant Bunny with my crochet friends.

Isn't he absolutely wonderful?

"FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approx 45” from toe to top of head.

MATERIALS Premier® Yarns Toy Box™ (100% Acrylic; 100g/109 yds) • #1056-08 Wiffle Ball – 10 balls

Hook: Size US L-11 (8mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge.

Notions: Stitch marker, 2 safety eyes or buttons, polyester fiberfill, tapestry needle

GAUGE: Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.

PATTERN NOTES

• The bunny is worked in continuous rounds; do not join at the ends of rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each round and move the marker as each round is completed."

• Stuff the body, head, arms, and legs as work progresses. Do not stuff the ears. •

When fastening off, always leave a tail 12-18” long for sewing. 

I know a certain young one in my life that would love George!

FREE crochet Mother & Daughter dress...


This adorable dress found on Ravelry came across my Facebook feed the other day and I just had to share it with everyone. The nice part of this pattern is that you can adjust the dress to fit any size by adjusting the size of the granny square, the crochet hook and/or the yarn.

This would make a beautiful cover-up for a day at the beach.

Download the pattern by clicking on the picture. Don't forget to add it to your "Favorites" on Ravelry!

FREE Crochet Take-along project...

..to turn into a beautiful afghan or other project. If you love to crochet on vacation or on the "back porch", this is the perfect "carry-wherever-you-are" project.

Hooks'n Tales, the designer, is offering a FREE pattern on Craftsy to creative an absolutely beautiful project called "Sunrise Beach".

In her intro to the project she writes:
"A Vintage-look, super versatile, decorative floral square with rich texture and enough “lacy” bits to give it a vintage feel. Perfect to use for an afghan, or repeats in a special bespoke baby blanket, a cushion cover, a single or full sized blanket, or a country style throw over any old couch that needs a loving touch! This square ends in a row of single crochets which makes it easy to add more rounds to increase the size."
Be sure to check out her other designs when you pick up her FREE pattern on Craftsy!
