The solar eclipse has finally arrived! I’ve got my pinhole viewer ready (made out of a cereal box), and the NASA live stream is on the tv! I remembered making a pinhole viewer in elementary school to watch a partial eclipse, so I am feeling a bit nostalgic. I’ll be watching from our porch here on the mountain in Colorado, and today I’m thankful (for a change) that I don’t have super tall trees blocking my view.
In honor of today’s momentus event in the United States, here’s a round up of some fun and inspiring solar eclipse related crochet patterns to try!

This awesome blanket is perfect for today! Its solar System theme is so fun, and the corner-to-corner style makes it easy to do. You can find the free pattern to all the pieces at Whistle and Ivy.
I love this pillow, and plan to make one for my bed. This pattern is designed by Hooked on Sunshine, maker of beautiful mandalas. Find it on Ravelry.
I’ve had this shawl saved in my Ravelry queue since Kim Guzman introduced it back in April. All I can say is LOVE!
I started off my crochet and solar eclipse day with this pattern….so cute! It’s a free pattern over at Once Upon A Yarn.
I love how this coaster by Tamara Adams really gives the illusion of the moon crossing in front of the sun. Free pattern on Ravelry.
I know…two coasters! But I couldn’t resist this lovely coaster. Can’t you just imagine this as an appliqué or even turning it into a granny square? You can see the free pattern at CrochetBird.
