Free pattern: Chocolate Chip Cookie Hot Pad

Chocolate Chip Cookie Hot Pad, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter

According to Food.com, “every day is a food holiday,” and May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day.

I am a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies (I prefer chewy to crunchy), and yes, I do have my own variation on the classic NESTLÉ Toll House recipe.

My secret is to use almond extract instead of vanilla, and to substitute other “mix ins” for that cup of chopped nuts, like M&Ms, peanut butter chips, dried cranberries, or slivered almonds.

But what if you want to celebrate Chocolate Chip Cookie Day every day? Or, without baking? Then you may want to try out my crochet version!

Free pattern: An Unconventional Aviator

An Unconventional Aviator, free crochet aviator hat pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

This asymmetrical earflap hat is an unconventional spin on an aviator hat. My original inspiration was an iconic image of pioneering aviatrix, Amelia Earhart, used in Apple’s Think Different poster series.

Amelia Earhardt Think Different

I love the mischievous look in her eyes! I borrowed the shape for An Unconventional Aviator from that design.

An Unconventional Aviator, free crochet aviator hat pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

I wanted to design an earflap hat that emphasized Amelia’s creative spirit (did you know she briefly had her own clothing line?), so I steered away from the typical neutral colors you would see in an aviator pattern and choose bright cerulean yarn.

An Unconventional Aviator, free crochet aviator hat pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

I included a stitch pattern with eyelet details that add a touch of femininity (and also work as adjustable button holes).

I finished the hat off with two amazing gunmetal buttons I picked up at M & J Trimming.

I hope you have as much fun crocheting this hat as I did!

Welcome to the Mystery Scarf Blog Hop CAL/Design Improv Workshop! You can find out more about this CAL here. Don’t forget to use hashtag #DIW2 when sharing online and link up your projects to the pattern here on Ravelry!

If you’ve been following along with the CAL so far, you’ve already completed Section 1 with Stitches’N’Scraps and Section 2 with American Crochet. I’m delighted to share Section 3 with you today!

Each designer is using their own yarn and hook and this is a “gauge optional” project, so we are seeing a lot of variety already! I toyed with the idea of using a solid color since it’s a mystery project and that seemed the safer choice, but this beautiful skein of Miss Babs Yowza — Whatta Skein in Violets in the Grass kept calling to me.

I paired it up with my new Shepherd’s Custom Woodworking hook (reviewed here) in size J because I’m a tight stitcher. I’m so glad I stuck with my guns because this yarn is so beautiful! Here’s my scarf through Section 2.

Free pattern: Mod 9-Patch Blanket

Mod 9-Patch Blanket, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

Back in August, 2013, one of my patterns was published in Love of Crochet. As sometimes happens when you design patterns for print, the name was changed. The magazine called it the Mod Square Blanket, but my original title was the Mod 9 Patch Blanket.

This post contains affiliate links.

Photo (c) Creative Crafts Group, LLC/Love of Crochet.

Photo (c) Creative Crafts Group, LLC/Love of Crochet.

I chose the original name because the blanket layout is a 9-patch pattern, based on the 9-patch quilting designs that were making a resurgence in the modern quilting community when I originally submitted the design.

Mod 9-Patch Blanket, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

Mod 9-Patch Blanket block layout diagram.

I designed the blanket with 5 variations on the traditional granny square pattern, and then arranged these variations into 3 different 9-patch groups. There is a one-color square (Block A), two variations on the square within the square (Blocks B and D), and two variations on the granny in the corner (Blocks C and E).

I wanted the project to be portable, so I designed the blanket to be sewn together at the end.

Mod 9-Patch Blanket, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

The finished squares, awaiting assembly.

I used Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash in 1914 Alaska Sky, 1960 Pacific, and 889 Spruce (which has since been discontinued). This yarn is one of my favorites for blankets because it washes and wears well. The design includes two sizes, a twin and a long twin (the beds that are common in college dorm rooms). But, as you can see, the twin size also just covers the top of a double (full) bed.

Mod 9-Patch Blanket, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

MC and I love to use it over a sheet in the winter while watching movies on the couch. We can both stretch our legs out on the ottoman and the blanket keeps us cozy.

I’m sharing an updated version of the pattern for free on my blog. I hope you have as much fun crocheting this blanket as I did! I’d love to see your pictures if you make one.

Free pattern: Triangles Beanie

Triangles Beanie, free tapestry crochet pattern in 8 sizes newborn through adult by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter.
Welcome to my themed blog series, Crochet Specialty of the Month! Each month in 2015, I’ll feature a specialized crochet technique, stitch pattern, or project type through several posts.

This post contains affiliate links.

Hats are some of my favorite things to crochet (and knit). They’re functional, quick to make, and great stash busters!

Triangles Beanie, free tapestry crochet pattern in 8 sizes newborn through adult by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter.

I knew I wanted to make a hat as part of my exploration of tapestry crochet this month, and I had just the right amount of leftover yarn!

I used some of Carol Ventura‘s tapestry crochet graph paper (available here), though, to be fair, this pattern is so simple I could have used regular graph paper.

This is a simple hat pattern that is perfect for your first explorations of tapestry crochet. I’ve even included both a chart and written instructions for the triangles pattern.

I’ve also included 8 sizes, from newborn through adult large, so I’m sure you’ll be able to find the right size for your next hat project! (I’m wearing the adult small in the pictures.)
