Crochet Café Sign Pattern: Make Your Workspace A Cozy Haven

Close your eyes and transport yourself to the familiar embrace of your beloved coffee shop. The air is infused with the rich, comforting aroma of freshly ground coffee, dancing harmoniously with the sweet notes of pastries tempting you from the display. The gentle hum of conversation, the soft clinking of cups, and the occasional distant sound of a barista’s hiss all create a symphony that lulls you into a state of pure, unfiltered joy and peace of mind. This is the atmosphere I aimed to bring, the essence of your cherished café moments, to your very own workspace with this adorable and cute Chalkboard Café Sign crochet pattern. You can use it as a To-Do list stand, picture frame or motivational quote display etc… So, grab your hook, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and let’s crochet our way to a cozy workspace haven.

The Back Panel

Chain 26, starting the 2nd loop from the hook:

Row 1: 25 sc (25)

Row 2 to 33: 25 sc (25)

Cut the yarn and fasten off (weave in the ends). Make 2 of them.

The Front Panel

Chain 26, starting the 2nd loop from the hook:

Row 1: 25 sc (25)

Row 2 to 33: 25 sc (25)

R34: 1 hdc, (1 dc, 1 tr) in the next stitch, 4 tr, 1 dc, 1 sc, 1 dc, ( 1 dc, 1 tr) in the next stitch, 2 tr, tr inc, 2 tr, (1 tr, 1 dc) in the next stitch, 1 dc, 1 sc, 1 dc, 4 tr, (1 tr, 1 dc) in the next stitch, 1 hdc (30)

Cut the yarn and fasten off (weave in the ends). Make 2 of them.

At this point, take one of the back panel and one of the front panel, then sew the 2 hinges at the top of each of them (at their row 33 for both of them) just as shown in the pictures down below.

The Frame – Crochet Café Sign

Chain 93, then sl st in the 1st loop of the chain to make a circle with your chain base. We will now make in round.

Round 1: start from the stitch where we have made the sl st: 19 hdc, hdc3tog, 22 hdc, hdc3tog, 19 hdc, hdc3tog, 22 hdc, hdc3tog (25)

Finish the round with and invisible join. Cut the yarn and fasten off. Make 2 frames this way.

Now pick the others front and back panel left, and sew the frames on each one of them. Please note that you should only sew the top, left side and bottom of the frames to the panels. The right side should be left untouched so you can slide some paper after to your café sign (see pictures below). Also note that you should only sew the outer edge of the frames and leave the inner edge untouched in order for the paper to get stuck under the frame (see the last picture below).

Don’t sew the right side of the frame to slide paper under it later on
For both frames

And only sew the outer edge of the frame, not the inner one

The Feet

Chain 5, starting the 2nd loop from the hook:

Round 1: 3 sc, ( 3 sc in the last stitch), continue working on the other side of the chain base: 2 sc, (2 sc in the last stitch – where we started our round) (10)

Round 2 to 6: 10 sc (10)

Cut the yarn and fasten off (weave in the ends). Make 4 of them.

Sewing Time – Crochet Café Sign

Cut 2 pieces of cardboard: one in the front panel’s shape, one in the back panel’s shape. Don’t forget to include the feet of the panels when making your shapes (2 in the front, 2 in the back). This addition serves as the backbone of your café sign, providing your creation the stability and firm foundation it needs to stand on your desk.

Now that you prepared your carboards, time to sew the two front and two back panels together.

Insert the carboard in between the 2 front panels, slide 2 of the feet at the bottom, then sew everything together. Repeat this process for the 2 back panels.

Now add the chains on both sides to make the sign more realistic but also keep it from falling flat.
