I'll be honest, I'm guilty of over-using the single crochet. So when my Aunt requested a new blanket for her cat, I decided that now's the time to stretch my wings and try something new.
This is the first of hopefully many "Fun with stitches" blog posts where I try out a new stitch and try and teach how it's done.
This is the Shell pattern and it's really simple actually. All you really need to know is the Treble and Double Crochet stitches.
You heard right! Well, they're not really for eating though (unless you're a goat).
If you didn't know, Brenda from Sweet Simple Stuff and I did a blog swap last week. Her blog consists of candy, baked goods, and lots of cute idea's for sweets, so, for our swap, she posted some not so fat free granny squares, you can check them out here, and I posted a free pattern for my Crocheted Cupcake Coasters (that's an alliteration for all you grammar geeks out there ;)
You can buy these coasters on my Etsy here.
Along with this free pattern I came out with a cupcake themed beanie, and the pattern for that as well!
You can get the Cupcake Beanie pattern for $4 on Ravelry or Etsy, or by simply clicking -->HERE<--
This Friday yet another awesome superhero movie of this summer comes out, The Dark Knight Rises, and you know I'm here to make an equally awesome pattern to commemorate it!
So some of you may know the little bat pattern I posted last year, well I used that pattern with a few differences to make today's free pattern of a simple Batman Logo, but that's not all...
Iron man's not the only one with some sweet gloves, and do to the popularity of my Iron Man Fingerless Mittens posted last month, I decided to make some Batman Ninja versions of them!
You can get the Gauntlet pattern for $3 on Ravelry, Craftsy, or Etsy, or by simply clicking -->HERE<--

Bonjour! Comme j'ai promis la semaine dernière, pour célébrer le jour Bastille pour nos amis en France, voici un modèle pour un fusée de crochet! Et oui, je sais que mon français est mauvais hahaha.
Kay, back to English, my french isn't very great. So today I'm going to be posting a new pattern for a Crocheted Rocket / Firework to celebrate both our independence day in America (I know it's a bit late haha) as well as Frances independence day! Wooo!!
To go along with this pattern, check out last weeks free Party Popper pattern here!
If you like these two patterns and want to help me out and donate for more free patterns in the future ;) then feel free to buy both of these patterns on my Etsy HERE! They'll be sent to you in a shiny PDF pattern in a matter of just a few hours! AND (yes there is an and) you'll get a coupon for 25% off your next Louie's Loops pattern!
Check out the pattern after the jump!
Happy July 4th everyone (mostly those in America I guess haha). I had planned on putting out two new free patterns for today, but seeing as Bastille Day is right around the corner I felt I should save one for mon amis en France as well!
HERE! They'll be sent to you in a shiny PDF pattern in a matter of just a few hours! AND (yes there is an and) you'll get a coupon for 25% off your next Louie's Loops pattern!
Again though, the rocket pattern will be here on the 14th so if you want to wait, and don't want to donate :( (haha) then feel free to wait! If not here's where you can get it now.
So here's the pattern for today, party poppers! Great for birthdays, new years, or the 4th of July!!
Pattern available after the jump!!
I didn't have long to work on a new pattern for the new Spiderman movie and the fourth of July, so instead I recycled one of my old ones and made a Spiderman Classic / Slouchy Beanie!
Check out the brand new beanie in the Etsy shop today!
Don't forget that you can buy the pattern for these hats here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/89448012/crocheted-classic-slouchy-baggy-beanie
