Pin Cushions – Crochet Pattern Round Up

We are currently all living in a time in our lives of uncertainty. As our entire world is staying home to help fight the spread of the Corona Virus/COVID-19 all our lives have changed. Some are working from home, some are unable to work, some are able to help others while others are looking for ways to help.

As a crafter, it is in our nature to make things and gift them to other people. I know many of my followers are really into doing charity work (just follow my October Crochet Cancer Challenge to see). As we embark on this new time in our lives I was trying to find a way to help out or reach out to others while still practicing social distancing.

One Way Crocheters can Pay It Forward

I have seen many posts on the shortage of medical face masks. Many are asking sewers to help make masks to support the healthcare workers (and others that need these masks).

All over the country, homebound Americans are crafting thousands upon thousands of face masks to help shield doctors, nurses and many others from the coronavirus.

They are pulling together to meet an urgent need: Hospitals, overwhelmed by the fast spreading pandemic, are burning through their supplies of protective gear, in particular masks, at an alarming rate. Doctors and nurses are getting sick and dying.

Crocheting facemasks is POINTLESS and can actually be DANGEROUS because germs will go straight through the fibers. So, why am I even bringing this up to my fellow crocheters? Because, as crocheters, can pay it forward and thank those that are sewing to help others.

Crochet Pin Cushions are fun, quick and a cute Thank You

Coffee Cozy Sweater Wrap Pattern

The Coffee Cozy pattern is great for beginners.

I designed the Cozy pattern for beginners to practice crocheting the basic single crochet stitch. The pattern comes with 4 options. Each option has a different look, all while using the single crochet stitch.

My hope is to help those new to crochet work on a quick project that they will get excited about completing and want to make more and learn more. Seriously, check out how different all the textures are in the photo below. Each sample is crocheted using the single crochet stitch, just in different ways.

These cozies are perfect for quick gifts during the holidays. The Coffee Cozy Sweater Wrap fits most 8-12 oz coffee cups, or taller 16 oz cups. Cups with handles will help hold the cozy inplace but are not required.

Gift Ideas

Make a cozy and add it to a cute mug, throw in some hot cocoa packets with candy canes, or tea with an infuser, or go the coffee route and add some gourmet brew and fun creamer packs. Any theme you decide to create and give will be loved by all. They are great gifts alone or make an entire set.
