It’s the season of “Pumpkin Everything!” From Pumpkin Spice lattes to donuts, air fresheners, beer, and well… the entirety of Pinterest… the love of Autumn has taken on a decidedly orange hue.

Organization is one of those things I think I’m a master of… until suddenly I look around and realize things have gotten out of hand (again). Stuff everywhere it isn’t supposed to be, odds and ends piled up – you know how it goes, right? Suddenly the chaos builds up til you want to shout “Serenity NOW!” And then it’s time to take action! In the ongoing and never-ending battle towards organizing my home, I came up with this week’s free pattern. A fun and easy hanging basket that I’ve dubbed Organization Now!
Crocheters are remarkably generous people. They give their time and talents to friends and loved ones, often just for the joy of seeing a smile on the other person’s face. And there are dozens of charity groups, large and small, that focus on crocheting to help others. Many of those have specific needs and requirements. Today I would like to share some patterns you don’t have to be part of a group to make – but they all promote awareness and activism right in the design! Perfect for fundraisers or just letting someone know they’re loved. A lot of the patterns are pink, but it’s easy to change the color as appropriate. Here are 10 free crochet for a cause patterns! (One warning – one of these patterns contains three quarters of a swear word.)
The African Flower Motif might just be the new granny square! This one motif seems to be able to form the basis of any number of patterns. It’s fun, beautiful, easy, and visually striking – and here are 10 free patterns that show it off!
The Mesmerizing Messenger Bag was a very special request – from my 11 year old daughter Riley! My kids inspire many of my designs, but the credit for this free crochet pattern really does go to Ri! After seeing the Leaping Stripes and Blocks Blankets I made for her new cousins, she promptly declared that she wanted a crochet messenger bag using the same stitch pattern. So we took a trip to the store, where she picked out the yarn and all the details. And now our collaboration is ready to share!
