Featured Free Pattern: The Walkednights


Walkednights is one of my most popular free patterns. It currently has 61 projects on Ravely with very good Average Difficulty Rating. I think this is wonderful because Walkednights is not a typical standard crochet pattern. It is actually a "problem" or a "crocheting exercise" which crocheters need to figure out for themselves in order to complete the project.

The matching pair of intimate apparel (or swimwear) is completed by solving the problem: "Using the square motif and trim patterns given as theme, make a bralette and underwear set."

Why not give it a try? You may find the pattern at Walkednights. If you're on Ravelry, do share your finished project at Walkednights on Ravelry. Enjoy!

This is my second blog post on a pattern feature, this time, featuring the crocheted vest pattern, "Summer Evening." The vest I made is long, a single button in front and flares open at the bottom so it can be worn with your favorite dress.

Instructions given are for sizes S, (M, L) / Bust 32”-34”, (36”-38”, 40”-42”). Length: 27”(29”,29”)

Summer Evening Vest crochet pattern may be purchased for only US$2 at my Ravelry Store. Feel free to modify the pattern for different styles. Make it longer or shorter or trim with fringes for a boho style. Enjoy!

Pattern Feature: The Orchid Garden Bolero



The bolero: one of my favorite patterns, one of my favorite garments to wear.

The Orchid Garden Bolero is made up of 3 rectangular motifs. The motifs are then sewn together – at the sides and at the shoulders. The bottom trim is crocheted in rows, followed by the neckline also in rows, and finally the armholes in rounds.

To complete this project you will need:
  • Yarn: Substitute with yarn weight: 3:Light or DK Weight Yarn.
  • Hook: 4mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends and sewing side and shoulder seams
  • 1” Button
  • Scissors
Pattern is available in sizes for bust 34”-36” (38”-40”,42”-44”)
Bolero is meant to be worn over a garment and is therefore crocheted to be loose-fitting. Pattern instructions include tips on making the bolero in fitted size, as well as detailed photos of work-in-progress.

You can purchase this crochet pattern for only US$2.00, available at The Orchid Garden on Ravelry.



If you make this project, please let me know or share your finished project on Ravelry. If you have a question about the pattern you can contact me via email fats.lasay@gmail.com. Enjoy!
