Come Home to Crochet

If you are an avid crocheter, you know the struggle to find cute, somewhat modern and easy to follow patterns. Come Home To Crochet offers 7 home decor patterns that range from snuggly blankets to modern pillows.

 

Darling Dinner Set by Knit Picks

 

If you are a new crocheter, many of the patterns are perfect beginner projects. The Darling Dinner Set is made with the broomstick lace technique that makes the project look extra fancy. Practice your edging technique and add a pop of color with the simple edge. Using CotLin yarn, the placemats are soft, durable and machine washable, making them perfect housewarming gifts.

 

Daisy Chain by Knit Picks

Blankets

There are also 3 gorgeous and very different blanket patterns. The Daisy Chain blanket has such a wonderful weight to it. Made out of Shine, it is unbelievably soft but is still machine washable! The flower chains and stripe effect surrounded by simple lace edging makes this an eye catching blanket. The stitch pattern is created in two parts, using half circle cluster stitches and shells. Don’t be intimidated by this complex looking stitch! The repeat makes this blanket a breeze to crochet.

 

Woven Baby Blanket by Knit Picks

 

Another one of the blanket patterns is perfect for babies! Crocheted in Comfy yarn and in a worsted weight, the Woven Baby Blanket crochets quickly. The interesting texture is created by mixing stitches to create a woven look. Any new parent would love to receive this blanket for their baby!

 

 

Pillows

And to add some color to your couches, there are 2 pillow patterns included in this new book! My favorite is the Mandala Pillow. By working two panels  back and forth in a slip stitch pattern and then sewed together, this project is so much fun to crochet! The colorful mandala is crocheted in joined rounds and then seamed onto one side of the pillow. I can’t wait to make my own; it will match my home decor perfectly!
