This month’s Yarn Crafts & Coffee finds include Spring, Summer and Christmas free and paid crochet patterns. A loopy yarn rug, granny square shadow box, macrame inspired crocheted plant holder, trendy chicken plush, flower motif granny square blanket and an adorable pig stuffie are just a few of the projects you’ll find in this collection!

when I started to feel that urge to update my home decor this spring a little bit, I came across this absolutely adorable cupcake “mug rug” that I could put on my coffee table instead of boring coasters, and I can even make a few extra for my birthday this year, in my favorite colors!
I love the simplicity of popping a cute vest over a solid-color shirt and then it feels like a whole new outfit! This is why I was drawn to the simple but beautiful Tolosa Vest. I fell in love with the picture and when I saw it was designed by Lena Skvagerson, I knew it would also be a well-written pattern to make it even better! And in this case, I was right – it was an enjoyable and easy pattern that gave me a comfy and adorable winter accessory.
This ruana is sincerely impressive in size and also fashion. I love it! I recommend the crochet pattern to anyone who feels confident with post stitches. You’ll get lots of warm, cozy days out with this ruana.
I just love when Annie’s Signature Designs releases their new crochet and knit patterns each season! I’m always looking forward to seeing what Apparel and Home designs will be included! I’m sharing my 10 Favorites from the Fall 2022 Collection.
This poncho just sang to me from the moment I spotted it. It’s cabled, looks (and is) super cozy, and it just radiates Fall vibes. The pattern is not as scary as it looks either. It’s based on a 6 row repeat throughout, and a great practice project to get comfort with cables as long as you’re comfortable with post stitching.
I cannot overstate how comfortable this piece is. I realize part of that is to the credit of the yarn, which is one of my all-time favorites because it’s so luxuriously soft and perfect for garments, but I need to credit the designer as well. This shape is very boxy and simple, but having the edgings all pull in tighter and give it some flattering curves is so smart! It’s light, it’s comfy and warm but not too thick, and I can see myself wearing it all of the fall season.
Because of the unpredictable temperatures, crochet toppers, like this shrug, have come in so handy this spring and early summer. I can wear a light summery outfit, but throw on a topper for the chilly parts of my day! This shrug pattern has been no exception, and the versatility is impressive.
This crochet pattern met all my expectations. It was simple enough to make but held my interest, it looks more complicated than it ended up being, and it gives a beautiful but laid-back look to pretty much any warm-weather outfit.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with my new Country Grace Pullover. It was an easy crochet pattern to follow worked in a stitch pattern similar to the classic granny stitch, and easy to adjust to fit just the way I wanted. This is an excellent Spring and Summer top, though living in Florida, I will enjoy it all year long.
