Instagram Takeover Crochet Pattern Roundup: Angela Plunkett from Little Monkeys Design (@LittleMonkeysDesign)

On the weekends, I’m inviting some of my crochet, knitting, and crafty friends for a takeover of my Instagram account so they can share their talents with you. Since you can’t easily share links on Instagram, on Sunday night, I’ll share a roundup including links to all the patterns and projects featured in the takeover. So, are you ready for this week’s #undergroundcraftertakeover roundup?

This week’s guest is crochet designer and maker Angela Plunkett from Little Monkeys Design. You may remember Angela because she previous shared a guest post, the free crochet pattern for the Jane’s Cowl on Underground Crafter.

Angela says, “Hi! I’m Angela, the face behind Little Monkeys Design. I love to work with natural fiber yarns to create crochet designs for beginner and advanced crocheters. I seem to be drawn to designing items that make great gifts – baby blankets, hats, cowls (above is my new Snow Day Cowl pattern), scarves and ponchos.”


Instagram takeover crochet pattern roundup featuring Angela Plunket from Little Monkeys Design | Get links to 11 crochet patterns by Angela Plunkett from Little Monkeys Design.

  1. Angela says, “I have 5 children and they often model my crochet designs for me. This is my daughter Emma modeling one of my new patterns – the Chunky Hello Winter Hat – from my Winter Warmth Collection of crochet patterns. This hats was designed using Echoview chunky merino yarn.”
  2. Angela says, “I’ve discovered a love of creating cable stitches! I was so afraid of them at first, but they are a lot of fun! I have a boot cuff pattern of cables and now a hat pattern – Dreaming of the Slopes.”
  3. Angela says, “I like to thank my newsletter friends with free crochet patterns every now and then. I recently sent them a free pattern for a bookmark created with granny squares. I created it for a friend’s birthday present.” Join Angela’s newsletter here and get the free crochet pattern for the Granny Square Bookmark here.
  4. Angela says, “In the winter, I love to wear leg warmers under my skirts to keep warm – though it doesn’t get too cold in Nashville where I live. Leg warmers are especially cute on chubby baby legs!” Buy the On Your Toes Legwarmers pattern here.
  5. Angela says,”A great gift for a friend who crochets is a crochet kit – a pattern and the yarn needed to create the project. This kit is for my popular Pure and Simple Baby Blanket crochet pattern created with organic cotton yarn from Appalachian Baby.”
  6. Angela says,”One of my first crochet patterns that I designed was my Hannah Boot Cuffs, named after one of my daughters. They utilize several different crochet stitches to create a unique textured boot cuff. The shells across the top add some femininity.”
  7. Angela says, “This fall my Fiona Poncho pattern has been the best seller of all my crochet patterns. It’s easy enough for a beginner crocheter with some experience to crochet. The cowl neck is the cherry on top!”
  8. Angela says, “I designed my new Crazy Jesse hat pattern for my little guy, Cade Jesse, though it comes in sizes baby – adult. It is a fun and easy pattern for anyone wanting to work beyond a single crochet stitch.”
  9. Angela says, “You will often find me designing crochet patterns for babies. Here is one of my new baby bonnet patterns – Color Me Happy Baby Bonnet. They sold well at a recent craft fair I attended. This pattern was designed using Mountain Meadow Wool Merino yarn.”
