0 Crochet Puzzle Blanket Pattern



I have been working on this blanket pattern for the past few months and am finally finished! I love how it turned out. I grew up doing lots of puzzles and I still enjoy doing them. I am often inspired by my likes and hobbies and I like to make them into blankets. This pattern is a written and grid pattern. It uses very basic crochet stitches and I would say it is easy, just a little time consuming. 

This is available for purchase as an instant download in my esty shop.

0 Crochet Plus Blanket Pattern

I love blankets that can be made for boys or girls. And this one is perfect. It whips up easy and fast and only uses 7 skeins of yarn. It is a baby/toddler blanket and is 29 inches by 35 inches. It only took a few days to make too. So it's perfect for a last minute baby gift. Available for instant download here in my etsy shop.

1 What I'm Working On

I've been on a break from crochet for a year or so because of life and family, but I'm SO happy to be back at it. I feel like I have a million pattern ideas in my head and I can't wait to bust them out and share with you. I get inspired by my interests and my kids. I love puzzles, so naturally I love to combine my hobbies into one, a crochet puzzle blanket! This was a little tricky to figure out and at first I was sure that I would never figure it out, but with a little patience and a lot of crocheting and unraveling, I think I've finally figured it out and I am loving the results. Here's some progress photos.


 Sadly, I have run out of some colors so I have to wait for more yarn to come in the mail. I hate when that happens. I am so excited to finish this pattern and put it up in my shop. In the meantime I've been working on this other pattern.
 Right now I'm making it into a placemat, but I think it would be a lovely pot holder or baby blanket.
Stay tuned for more updates and patterns. I'm also thinking of doing a video series on how to crochet. Let me know if you're interested. Pin It

0 Crochet VW Bus Blanket Pattern



Remember me? I haven't posted in 2 years, because of life and family and whatnot, but I really want to start blogging again with my crochet projects. So if you don't know this already about me, I have a slight obsession with VW buses. I LOVE them. And so it only made sense to create a crochet VW bus blanket for my kids (and me) to enjoy. And for you too! Find my pattern here. Hope you like it as much as I do.

2 Crochet Polka Dot Blanket Pattern

I just added this crochet pattern to my shop.  I love how it turned out. It was a little tricky figuring out, and it always is a headache making patterns, but in the end so worth it. I plan on making a gray one with all kinds of different colors sometime soon. The thing I love most about making patterns is all the new ideas I get from making one. Too many ideas, too little time!

2 New Listing in Etsy

I love doing custom orders. I made this little reindeer hat for a friend and listed the pattern in my shop. It can be for a boy or girl by just removing the bow. I'm thinking Benson and Kenzie need one each for when we go to Zoo Lights. So sweet for December babies too. I would be happy to make them for people that don't crochet, just send me an email (alynnc17@gmail.com) and let's get your babies a reindeer beanie!

3 Minions

Whose excited for Halloween?! I know I am. I made these Minion hats and Gru scarf over the weekend for my cousin's kids. I used this pattern for the hats. And the scarf was super easy, here is what I did. 

Yarn: Gray and Black medium weight yarn
Hook: Size J

Row 1: Ch. 19 sts. 
Row 2: Hdc in the 3rd ch. from the hook, hdc in each st across. 
Row 3: Ch. 2 and turn, hdc in each st across.
Row 4-8: repeat row 3.
Row 9-11: Fasten on black and repeat row 3.

Repeat from row 3-11 until your scarf is to your desired length. So simple and quick!


You could probably whip these up in a day or two, so if you are like me and wait until the last minute to get everybody's costume done, this is a fast and fun last minute costume idea.
