Check out Moogly for awesome crochet inspiration, and some free patterns, including this one that 54pineapples used for these wine carriers. Moogly shows hers crocheted with white and hot pink Lion Brand Fettuccini. Fettuccini yarn is bulky, stretchy, and strong, which makes it perfect for projects like this one, or for bowls and bags. 54pineapples made these in cyan, magenta, yellow & black, as giveaways for lucky winners at a recent bridal shower. The bride-to-be is a graphic designer, so the CMYK theme was perfect! This pattern works up very quickly making it perfect for when you want to give someone a bottle of wine or bubbly! Thanks Moogly!
Cowboy boot(ie)s crocheted by 54pineapples for a new little baby boy who just joined the family :-)
The latest from 54pineapples - black and white striped crocheted beach tote with lime green crocheted starfish appliqué and coordinating lining.
54pineapples baby shower gift for a delighted Mommy-to-be … a baby wave-ghan (or should that be wavy baby-ghan?). Crocheted both of these patterns several times and love them! The afghan is Waves of Color Ripple by Paula Longshore and the hat is Tutti Frutti, pattern by The Hat and I. Both patterns are great fun to make. The afghan is crocheted in the back loop only, which creates a lovely textural finished piece. And the corkscrews are an adorable addition to the striped cap.
54pineapples Crochet Memory Lane … I crocheted this afghan over 30 years ago and it has certainly stood the test of time. It’s a classic design, and is wonderfully warm and comfy. The pattern is from a Coats and Clark Red Heart pamphlet that I still have! But it is also available on Ravelry! So happy that this pattern is still available. What an homage to the classic art of crochet! Or is that the classiness of the art of crochet? Who says it can’t be both?!
54pineapples crocheted string bags (aka reusable market totes!) used as hospitality bags for overnight wedding guests. Crocheted in various colors of Lily Sugar ‘N Cream cotton yarn, these tote bags were packed full of local snacks and goodies. And after the snacks are gone, the bags will come in handy for the farmer’s market, the beach, or just running errands around town!
