free crochet patterns

I don’t know if I have mentioned it before but I have ADD and I had it before it was cool cause I’m old and well back then they didn’t have a name for it until I was well into high school.  So what’s my point?  I think the internet and social media can really get me going in lots of directions.   Like if I didn’t have all this maybe I’d have some crochet pattern in a book but now at the click of a mouse all types of free crochet patterns and video tutorials.   And I want to do them all!!!

So… Today I’m on Facebook and I see a contest thing to win a set of crochet hooks.  Well you have to go to YouTube to enter.   Did that and then somehow ran across a video tutorial for Entrelac Crochet.  Needless to say I grabbed some yarn and a hook and off I went.  It’s easy and pretty fun to work.   Below is what I did today.  🙂  Ahh another project.  I need to know when to say no!

Entrelac Crochet

 

baymax free crochet patternI came across this crochet pattern for Baymax from the movie Big Hero 6.  My son loves that movie so I thought it would be a quick and easy project.  It didn’t take long at all to crochet Baymax.  I was informed from my son though that Baymax doesn’t have a heart on his chest.  OPPS!

This cute little guy is just about 3 inches tall.  I put a loop on the top of mine so my son could hang it in his truck.  Big kids love Baymax too.

Fun fact!  I didn’t have stuffing for Baymax so I make a small cut in one of their stuffed animals and told them it was a donor.  LOL  They said, “Mom you’re not right.”  Ahh but that’s why they love me.

What you need:

‣ Hook: 3 mm
‣ Yarn: White and a little piece of black yarn
‣ scissors
‣ fiberfill
‣ yarn needle
‣ plastic eyes ( just used yarn for my eyes)
‣ little piece of red felt
