So a few weeks ago, I was celebrating the kids returning to school and having more time to myself. Yeah, that didn’t happen, not at all! Instead, my co-workers started taking their end of Summer vacations and I filled in, sometimes hitting more than 60 hours a week. I’ve actually just completed my last fill in week + regular schedule, so YAY!!!
Warning: I get bored and silly at work sometimes!!
I do have the ability to crochet (or work on other projects) at work, when the job allows. So I’ve been crocheting still, just not sharing. One of the items I finished up in my work crunch was a tutu skirt for my daughter. Her schedule was also packed so we didn’t really see each other for a week or two. I had to send her pictures of the finished skirt to see her reaction (or I wouldn’t have), so I’ll share the pictures with you as well. I made this for Sabrina’s Rush Week for Zeta Tau Alpha. She didn’t get a single picture of her wearing it in full Bid Day makeup or otherwise, which I’m not happy about.
Definitely was being silly. So since I’ve neglected you for so long, I wanted to give you a great post to start back up. Presenting 32 great Free Fall Crochet Patterns! Everything to get your house cozy and family set for the colder months and hopefully YOU will have some “me time” now that school’s back in session!

I love home decor, in fact I have countless quilted tablerunners and wallhangings in my house. I’ve started to add some crochet items to it as well. The plaid pumpkin first grabbed me and Meg has links to plain pumpkins as well. The placemats would be wonderful for Fall family dinners and the leaves themselves would make a wonderful garland.
I’ve been totally intrigued by the Flip Flop crochet boots and it seems that The Make and Do Crew has the monopoly on crochet footwear. I didn’t intentionally find all the patterns from them, they just happened to have my favorites. I promise you, there will be a pair of these boots on my feet this year! I’m in love with them.
My kiddos were plagued with ear infections when they were little and I learned quickly to keep those little ears covered. Whether that’s an issue for your family or not, ear flaps and braids are just too adorable anyway!
A winter staple, hats, beanies, caps, whatever you call them are a must have at times! Even here in the moderate climate of the South, we still use them. I mean, you never know when we’re going to get that one snow fall!

I don’t think I need to explain why this category is here. Pom Poms are cute. Let me say that one more time, Pom Poms are cute!!! They add a finishing touch to your project and just give it that professional oomph! But how do you get the perfect one? Heart Hook Home has tutorials on 5 different ways to make that perfect embellishment, while Flax & Twine and The Purple Poncho show you how to take your fluffies to the next level!
The most popular cold weather accessory and no Fall Crochet list would be complete without them! Scarf patterns are everywhere so I’ve tried to find some more unusual or intricate ones for your hooking pleasure. I’ve mentioned before that I’m a huge Football fan and the All Wrapped Up scarf would be perfect for any “house divided” (when mom and dad are each routing for a different team!). The Plaid Infinity is just amazing! The Diamond Scarf shows you some surface crochet while Go With the Flow, Primrose and Proper, and A Poppy in the Storm bring you details that will make your scarves stand out against those *shudder* store-bought ones. We can’t forget the men so I’ve included a Gentleman’s Scarf. And for those days when you’ll be outside for a while (kid’s sports or stadium seating maybe) stay nice and cozy with the oversized Autumn Chill Angled Super Scarf and the Campfire Blanket Scarf.

Last but not least, my cold weather favorite, cardigans. I have been a cardigan girl since before high school, I’m always cold and sometimes a sweater is just too much. A cardigan gives you warmth without an all-day commitment and below are some fantastic finds!
I hope you’ll enjoy working on some of these during your “me time” and as always, I’d love to see any projects you complete! If you’re looking for a comfy stay-in project, check out my Ombre Mermaid Tail post. Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram #DesigningUs with your amazing crochet pics!
Keep creating. I know I will!
