Crochet patterns take up quite a lot of my free time - thinking them up, writing them down, changing stuff, making mistakes, getting them right... but I love this adventure!
I'm always on the lookout for fun stuff to crochet, be it flowers, little appliqués, braids, that kind of thing - often small projects that produce an attractive, useable item. Or maybe something more exotic, something a little different. Sometimes, of course, I get the "blanket bug" - if you know what I mean ;)
So on this site you'll find some of my own crochet ideas and designs, as well as stitch instructions, suggestions for increasing your knowledge of the craft, and all kinds of wonders that I hope will inspire you.
As with most things in life, this site is a work in progress :)
Most popular: Basic Crochet Heart
They've been a long time in the works, but this matching coaster and doily/placemat pair were worth it!
The doily is simply an extension of the coaster, so start with the coaster, and then see if you feel like continuing to make the doily! They each have their own page, because they didn't want to share ;)
Here's another popular crochet pattern - my Easy Crochet Baby Blanket.
This project uses dc (UK tr) and a simple edging. It's my first design using variegated yarn - WOW! You see, you're never too old to try something new!
My coaster and placemat/doily patterns are ready, hooray!
There are a few coaster designs all done - just have to be written up and photos taken.
I did find my C2C notes - maybe I'll work out what they mean... one day soon ;)
There's a Solomon Square all prepped, too.
I'm also working on a collection of flowers which I'm turning into an ebook.
So life's pretty busy, summer came and went, so did winter... and... spring is here again!
