There’s no such thing as bad weather with these little ami friends. They represent the whole spectrum of weather, and they’re still smiling!

Cristal en Cercle top crochet pattern February 2021 Pattern Pack Pro

    • Yarn: #3 DK weight yarn
    • Tools:  G/6 (4.0mm) hook, yarn needle

A peek at 3 of the crochet patterns inside our Vintage January 2021 Pattern Pack Pro issue!

1. Pentagon Mandala by Ken Cormier

Pentagram Mandala top crochet Pattern Pack Pro Jan 2021

This mandala finishes at around 12 inches in diameter after blocking. With the worsted weight, it’s ideal for a table centerpiece, and if made from cotton, makes a beautiful and functional hot pad! In a fingering weight yarn, this would make a lovely coaster set.

Beginner crocheters listen up! The Pentagon Mandala is a great project to practice your pattern-reading skills and gain consistency in your tension.

Here's what you'll need:

    • Yarn: #4 worsted weight cotton yarn
    • Tools: H/8 (5.0mm) hook, stitch marker, yarn needle
    • XP Level: Beginner

2. Retro Cassette Bag by Jessica Fishman

Retro Cassette Bag top crochet pattern for Pattern Pack Pro January 2021

Jump back in time with this super fun colorwork bag. Bold, neon colors give this bag its old-school look — that and the fact that it looks like a cassette tape — remember when we had to wind them back up with a pencil when they got eaten by the player?

This bag is made with Lily Sugar ‘N Cream cotton yarn, an economical and easy-to-find choice. But you can use any worsted weight yarn. It’s rated as easy, but there is a special stitch — the modified single crochet in which you yarn under rather than over.

You’ll also be making color changes, and with this project, it’s probably best to carry your colors through. For more information on how to do that, see this video.

Here's what you'll need:

    • Yarn: #4 worsted weight cotton
    • Tools: E/4 (3.25mm) and F/5 (3.75mm) hooks, stitch markers, 12-inch zipper, yarn needle
    • XP Level: Easy

3. Sunrise French Press Cozy by Pam Carr

French press cozy top pattern Pattern Pack Pro Jan 2021

If you’re looking for a quick make or a cute gift, this cozy is perfect. It’s made using #4 worsted weight yarn and the herringbone half double crochet stitch.

Modify the height to turn it into a coffee cup cozy. By the way, we have several cozy patterns in the January 2021 issue of Happily Hooked Magazine that would complement this French Press cozy.

Here's what you'll need:

    • Yarn: #4 worsted weight yarn
    • Tools:  H/8 (5.0mm) hook, 2 1-inch buttons (or preferred size), yarn needle
    • XP Level: Easy
