New website

Hello Everyone!

I know I haven’t posted anything in a while. Sorry! Life has had me so very busy lately.

Just letting all my loyal followers know that I have merged my blog on my website I will begin posting again soon beginning with a new quick and easy placemat pattern I have whipped up.

If you follow crochet cricket by email already no worries you will continue to receive post updates. If you follow me by wordpress reader alone you should visit my new site and follow me by email as well to continue to receive my posts.

Thank you to everyone who has supported my blog! The yarn loving community is surely the best.



One Year Celebration!

One year ago I began a little project called Crochet Cricket and with this came my blog, and though I haven’t been able to blog too much lately the one year celebration is still in order!

Thank you to all of you who follow me and to those who read my posts.

We reached 117,000 views this year! I think that is great for a part-time mommy blogger. I hope to get back into it soon. I have a full-time job now plus my beautiful children, but I do so enjoy blogging and creating beautiful crochet pieces.

Talk to you guys soon!

Getting Ready to Move

Hello everyone!

I am just popping in to tell you guys that I won’t be able to post for a couple of weeks. I will try to do a couple of posts with my works in progress, even there are any, but that is about it until after the 1st of July.

My husband is returning to school to become an electrician and we have been renovating his parents basement. It is a very nice apartment now. Getting everything ready to move! It’s a big task. I will miss crocheting for a while but hope to get back into it as soon as possible. In the mean time I wish you guys all the best! Talk to you soon 🙂

Gizmo (Free Pattern)

Hello everyone! This week for Fantasy Friday I have decided to reblog Amiguruthi’s Free Gizmo Pattern. So much FUN! I grew up watches these movies and it is definitely a blast from the past for me. Hope you enjoy this share. And if you don’t subscribe to Ami already you should stop by and see her wonderful blog. She shares some really unique free patterns. Have a great weekend!


Finally I can show you my long running WIP. Without further ado, here’s GIZMO! (Yarndango number 39!)

Amiguruthi Gizmo

For anyone not a child of the 80s or early 90s, Gizmo is the cute main character of the Gremlins movies. They’re super cheesy horror movies with genuinely scary undertones (just ask my sister about the spider Gremlin in the second film!). The first film is by far the better, although the second one is the one that got played on TV every Christmas when I was a kid. I grew up watching Gremlins, but it never occurred to me to amigurumify one until someone on Facebook linked to an article that mentioned the film. After that, well, what else could I do?

Loads of how to photos and the free pattern after the jump.

Owl mittens

The Green Dragonfly has done it again! Another Fun, Easy, Free Pattern. I can’t wait to make these :D.

The Green Dragonfly

It is starting to get cooler here, so I whipped up both the kids some fingerless mittens this week. Really there is not much simpler than a basic fingerless mitten. I confess, I don’t even bother to shape them… just crochet a rectangle and sew up the side leaving a thumb hole.

owl mittensHere’s a quick tutorial so you can make some for a little person you know… or maybe even yourself! The owl – once again inspired by Jacqui – is a tiny version made mostly with half double crochets. For anyone bored of owls, I promise these will be the last ones – for a little while at least 🙂 If you fancy a pair of even easier rainbow mittens check out my other tutorial here.Crochet owl mittens fingerless gloves


  • Yarn in desired weight, with appropriate sized hook for the mittens… I used a light worsted merino and a 4mm…
