Free Crochet Patterns for Baby

Hello all! I hope you’ve had a wonderful summer!

I’ve been absent from the blog a lot longer than I wanted to be, but for good reason! I’ve been working lots of overtime at my day job to help pay for some home improvements, and I’ve gotten a lot of crochet orders from my friends lately. It seems like everyone I know is expecting a baby at the same time, so my hands have been very busy making precious tiny things!

Free Crochet Pattern Roundup – Hats & Beanies

Hello everyone! I’m sorry for the long break between posts. Once we finished the Changing Chevrons Crochet Along, I went straight to work dreaming up and planning another one. I hope to have an announcement ready really soon for the next Crochet Along for this blog!

I’ve also done a little “upgrade” to the blog. Everything you love is still here, but I hope I’ve streamlined it and made it all a little easier to navigate! And I am now optimized for mobile, so you don’t have to worry about the header getting in your way whenever you scroll on a mobile device.

If you are just now hearing about the Changing Chevrons CAL, don’t worry! All of the weeks are always available on the site. A downloadable PDF of the entire CAL will be available soon. Sign up for the newsletter by entering your email at the top right of the page and never miss an update from Couch Surfer Crochet!

Changing Chevrons CAL – Week 7

This is Week 7 of the Changing Chevrons Crochet Along! Thank you for joining me on this project! Creating this pattern was really fun, and I love seeing all of your versions!


We’ve worked our way up to Row 77. This week we will be doing Rows 78 – 90! We’ve got ONE more week to go! I can’t believe it. If you’ve enjoyed this project, please share with all of your crafty friends! I’ve had a few people ask about making their blanket longer at the end. In the final pattern post I will share the sections that “I” think you should repeat to make this blanket longer. Of course as always, it’s totally up to you! If there was a particular section you really enjoyed, do that one! Anyway…on to this week’s pattern!

Changing Chevrons CAL – Week 5

Hello! Welcome back to Couch Surfer Crochet! We are now on Week 5 of the Changing Chevrons Crochet Along! I hope you all are enjoying this project as much as I am!

Before we get into the pattern today, I want to take a minute to say a sincere thank you to the members of the Couch Surfer Crocheters Facebook Group. Making a Chevron pattern has been much more challenging than anything I’ve done so far, and you have all been amazing during this process. I have posted a few mistakes in the pattern the last couple of weeks, and you all have been so nice and helpful while I get everything sorted! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This little website is my passion project, and I am so happy to share with all of you. Thank you for patience as we all figure this out together!

NOW, on to the fun stuff!


This week’s section is from the pink rows at the bottom to the pink rows at the top!

Beautiful Boxes Scarf Crochet Pattern

Hello! I hope you are all having an amazing January so far! It’s unseasonably warm (at least today!) here in Tennessee, so I thought it would be the perfect time to break out one of my lighter weight scarves. Last year I shared a yarn review for Caron Cakes yarn. I was so excited to try out self-striping yarn! Well…did you know that Red Heart now has their own line of self-striping yarns, appropriately called Red Heart Stripes?! They have some of the most amazing colors, and I couldn’t wait to try out a few of them!

However, I can share with you a pattern I created all for myself! I call it the Striped Stars Scarf! This pattern uses alternating rows of dc, hdc, and the star stitch to create this beautiful look and texture!
