Easter Crochet Inspiration

Last month, I shared some beautiful Celtic inspired crochet designs in honor of St Patrick's Day.  It only seems fitting that for April I should show you some equally lovely Easter crochet patterns I have discovered from around the interwebs!

Easter just isn't Easter without a chocolate bunny (or two)!  But if you're trying to lose a few pounds like me - it's just too tempting to have the real thing around.  Fortunately, this crocheted version by Doni Speigle has all the charm, without the calories.


Pattern Available - HERE or HERE




Another Easter "must have" is the stuffed bunny.  And I am completely infatuated with this "Angie Bunny" by Crochet Objet.  As if she's just not pretty enough just as she is - there's also a free dress pattern for her available on the website! 

Angie Bunny Pattern Available - HERE



We can't forget the real Reason for the Holiday.  For a pretty reminder - make this delicate Easter Cross!

Free Pattern - HERE



What's cuter than a little pair of bunny slippers?  This pair by Knot Your Nana's Crochet are just too cute for words!  I just wish the pattern as available in larger sizes so I could make a pair for the grand kid (or myself!)




If you're feeling a little more ambitious, you could try your hand at this crochet Easter Egg wreath! 

Free Pattern Available HERE



I'm not 100% sure this blanket qualifies as an Easter project, but it has bunnies.  And it's just TOO cute not to include!! 

Pattern Available at redheart.com

Have you made any cute Easter crafts? Or seen any patterns that you loved and were inspired by? I'd love for you to share a link in the comments so we can see them!

Celtic Crochet

March always sets my mind to Spring, Easter, and St. Patrick's Day.  The shop is slowly filling with some fun Easter items I have created.  But we'll talk about that soon.  Today, in honor of St Patrick's day, I want to share some beautiful Celtic inspired crochet designs which I have come across recently.



If you're looking for a basic four leaf clover, check out this pattern from Quiet Raine Knits.  It would be adorable on a pin or barrette. Or use it as an appliqué on a tote bag or an article of clothing.

Pattern Available HERE

Another lovely piece is this Celtic Knot Bracelet by Jennifer E. Ryan.  I love this piece and might have to make one for myself before the 17th! 

Pattern Available as a Free Ravelry Download HERE

While you're at it, she has a lot of gorgeous designs! Check out her blog at Celtic Knot Crochet.

For the tiniest of those who will be wearing the green, this Celtic Dream Bonnet is a must make.  I get a little bit of a grand baby craving every time I look at it!  Maybe I could convince the grand kid to wear it.  He's only 5.  No?  Too bad!  I mean, seriously...  does it get much cuter than this?? 

Celtic Dream Bonnet Pattern HERE

There are also matching beanie and cowl patterns for the older family members!

Or, you could make this beautiful Celtic Winter Cowl by Left in Knots as a little something special for yourself (or someone else)



Last, is this stunning shrug pattern (also by Jennifer E. Ryan!). I can just imagine a beautiful Celtic bride wearing it on her special day. 

Free Pattern HERE

This is just a handful of the amazing patterns I found to inspire my creativity this March.
Which is your favorite?

When Will It BEE Spring?

I realize that many of you have been reminded that it is still winter by snow piling up outside your window - over, and over, and over again.  But, around here someone gave Mother Nature the message that Spring is in the air.  We have had unusually warm temperatures.  The trees are budding.  And the daffodils are in bloom.  All these signs of Spring has my mind turning to Easter.  (Yes, already...)



This is resulting in new items for Queen B's Busy Work! Think bunnies, carrots, lambs, chicks, and who knows what else.  Keep an eye on the shop to see signs of Spring popping up over the next week or two.

And if you're the impatient type - you can follow me on Instagram for sneak peeks at all the cuteness to come in progress!


Have a BEEautiful Day,

Queen B's Arctic Friends

It has been a cold start to the year around here. We experienced 9 inches of snow and a frigid polar snap.  Brrrrr!! Of course, in typical fashion for these parts - we then had several days of near 70 degree weather.  It is what it is.  And I'm  sure we'll  see more freezing temperatures before Spring arrives.

Whatever winter is like where you live, everyone wants to stay warm when the polar chill starts to settle in.  And what's better than snuggling up with a cute little arctic friend?  The newest members of Queen B's handcrafted hats are just the thing!

Penguin Pal

Friendly Fox

Majestic Moose

These fun winter creatures are new for 2017 and available in sizes newborn to adult.  Come visit them at Queen B's Busy Work today!
