Free Crochet Jewelry Patterns

Someone at work today said there were only 7 weeks until Christmas. “Eeek,” is what I said. It’s time to start making gifts! I think crochet jewelry is really cool and I found some free crochet jewelry patterns that are cute. I like the little bluebird. It would look adorable on a denim jacket. I also like the bangles. I think those could be made very quickly.

I bet there is something here that you’ll want to make for yourself or for someone else.

Here’s the key to the free crochet jewelry patterns below.

Eyelet Crochet Baby Blanket with Scalloped Edge

I found this great, free pattern for an eyelet crochet baby blanket. I really like the crisscross eyelets and the scalloped edge. The pattern is very easy to follow.

Eyelet Crochet Baby Blanket
I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook. The yarn is Plymouth Yarn Encore Worsted Solids & Heathers: 3 skeins of off-white and 2 skeins of peach. The finished size is 39.5 x 39 inches wide. I did not complete the 9 rounds of single crochet stitches around the border. I only stitched 5 rounds before adding the scalloped edge. I felt the blanket was large enough.

I followed the advice of the pattern designer and blocked the blanket after I completed it. I think that is an important step and it really helps set the square shape of the blanket. I look forward to giving this blanket as a gift.

Granny Square Baby Blanket Pattern

I really like the final outcome of this granny square baby blanket pattern, but I learned something about myself in the making of it. My true limit for making granny squares is about 20. Originally, this was going to be an afghan with over 400 squares (original pattern requires about that many squares). I had to force myself to crochet the 110 squares for this blanket. I’m so happy to have completed this project. This will make a very nice gift for a new baby!

The pattern for the blanket/afghan is from Cute & Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench. It’s a book with a lot of wonderful patterns. The squares are seamed on top with single crochet stitches (squares into rows and then rows are seamed together). After all the squares are together, the blanket is stitched all around with one row of single crochet stitches.

I used Plymouth Yarn Encore Worsted Solids yarn. There are many colors of this yarn available so it’s a nice choice for making a highly colorful blanket. I crocheted the granny square baby blanket with a 4.0 mm (G) hook. The final size of the blanket is 33″ x 37″ (10 squares x 11 squares).

If you like making granny squares, this is a project for you!
