Fantasy Friday: Incredible Crocheted Dragon

It’s Friday!

Almost time for the weekend! I hope you all had a wonderful week. Usually I share a free pattern that is fantasy related on Friday but not this week. This week I am sharing a link to a gorgeous crochet dragon by the crochet architect.

The craftsman ship is truly inspiring. Look at the details in his face.

Fantasy Friday: Crochet Collar Pattern

This is the most adorable crochet collar I have seen. In the tradition of the Peter Pan collar, this is a free pattern for a collar that can be added a dress or blouse. It really gives the outfit some style.

It really reminds of something straight out of a fairy tale. I just love it. I am looking forward to trying this pattern for my daughter.

Enjoy the Long Holiday for Memorial Day! Have fun!

Fantasy Friday: Princess Tiara!

It’s Friday! The weekend is knocking at the door. And what better way to spend your weekend than making princess tiaras! I think this tiara is adorable. The link is from google translate and though it is a tutorial some of the details do not translate exactly. But even so, you can get the main idea of the tiaras construction. I love this! It is so different from every other crown I have seen. Very original.

Fantasy Friday: The Hobbit Edition

Welcome to a special edition of Fantasy Friday here at Crochet Cricket! This week I have put together some of the best ‘Free’ crochet patterns inspired by the Hobbit.

As a child, the earliest memories I have of loving a story are from the times my father would read me the Hobbit. And though the memories are cloudy and grey, it is clear that this is where my love for all things fantasy grew.

Go back? No Good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go! ~Tolkien

Gandalf the Grey

by ChrysN

Most of these free Hobbit tutorials are created by ChrysN, she is fantastic! This Gandalf doll isn’t just a great amigurumi project. It is special. She gives instructions on how to put lights in the staff and make the pipe glow!

~Not all those who wander are lost~

Hobbit Door

Here is another tutorial by ChrysN, though not a crochet project I thought it was really fun. This is for those of you that are crafty outside of Crochet. And it would be a great accessory to have for your amigurumi hobbit dolls.

Crochet Dragon – Smaug!

Also by ChrysN here is an incredible crochet dragon! I love this crochet pattern. The icing on the cake is the Red LED lights for the eyes. This is a real work of art.

Hobbits by Sammi Resendes

This final pattern is for the hobbits from LoTR. It is a free pattern by Geek Central Station. With this pattern you can make your own Bilbo doll to go with your Hobbit set.

Did you like this free pattern collection?

I really enjoy putting these free pattern collections together for you guys. This week was dear to my heart. I have  real soft spot for hobbits they are one of my favorite fantasy races.

Make sure we give a big thank you to ChrysN and Geek Central Station for making these awesome free patterns!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
