Little Crochet Houses Pattern & Tutorial

Hi everyone,

I finally sat down to put the tutorial together for these cute little houses. I am so in love with them that I can literally make these all day long! Maybe that’s what I’ll do this evening!

I saw this cute little bunting on Pinterest a few months back and knew right away I had to give these a try. So out came some yarn & a hook and after a few trials and errors, I finally settled on a pattern I was happy with.

Now, I used a 4.5 mm hook while making the sample above but I also made a few using a 4mm hook. You can see the difference in size below.

The 4 mm ones do curl a bit but nothing a bit of blocking wont fix.

Wet blocking (either soak before pinning to the board or pin and then spray water, leave till completely dry) works well for cotton yarn. If you use acrylic yarn, then steam blocking works like magic on them. Super fast and very efficient.

You can turn these into a bunting or a garland. They can be used as an appliqué or as Christmas tree decorations. The possibilities are endless and I’m sure all you amazing crafter’s will find brilliant and unique ways to use this pattern.

  1. I was looking for an original way to tell friends and family that I moved and this is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing. I will be making a bunch of those to use on a card.😊 The possibilitiesare just endless. I can already see a bunch of projects. Will share them on Instagram when I am done and make sure I give you the credit.

  4. This is what I am thinking. You can make them into crayons ( in long strips) then sew together to make a baby or a toddler blanket! Instead of making the windows, continue on in a solid pattern and continue to increase to 15-17-20 stitches. Continue down a few more rows then change to black. Do a few inches in black then back to the original color. What do you think?

  5. Thank you for sharing the pattern. I also loved the original picture on Pinterest but couldn’t find a pattern for them. It looked like they were made from the bottom to the roof. I like your idea of beginning with the roof first. I made a bunting using your pattern. It’s absolutely adorable! The pattern is well written and crochets up quick.
