  1. Check out the Crochet Dude's website. He has I believe a free pattern there. Have fun!
  2. I've made 3 and taught someone at work to crochet and she made 5. They work up so fast. I made one in just a couple of hours on Thanksgiving between dinner and dessert. Great quick pattern with a great look.
  3. Looks like a baby Bigfoot to me...I think he's cute!
  4. http://www.smileysyarns.com/ Click on Internet Yarn sale and then scroll halfway down. You would have to buy $40 worth and they have a flat rate shipping cost but they ship quickly. I've bought from them several times. Have fun! Chris
  5. Look up Aerie Designs I know Lenore has some patterns. They are for sale, I'm not sure how much though.
  6. Hi all~ Just wanted to let you know I started a group Crochet Dude Ravelry Group. Come join us. We'll be doing a "Dude Along" using his Monet afghan pattern. Hope to see you there! Chris
  7. Wow...love it. Now you made me go search for the pattern and put it in my favorites. This forum is killing me!!
  8. http://www.freepatterns.com/list.html?criteria=pet+bed I think this is the one you are looking for! Chris
  9. What book is this pattern from...it's gorgeous!!
  10. Hi Pat, My sister did a afghan years ago and she used regular yarn to do the cross stitch work on top. HTH, Chris
  11. I'm Jersey girl ...my sister had the same problem with her birthday, Feb 11th. Always a blizzard, snow or ice storm. Poor thing...I'm in June and I always got rained out. We had more BBQ's in our garage for my birthday than I care to remember...LOL!! Beautiful bag! Congrats to the winner!
  12. Whereabouts in Jamaica do you come from? My Ex is Jamaican. He's from Port Antonio. whagwan star? (sp??) LOL!!
  13. Believe it or not we crochet snoods for greyhounds...LOL!! It's basically a cowl neck. Since greys have such long necks we make the snoods for them to wear. We can fold them down or pull them up to cover the tips of their ears. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dizzy-lily-a-snood-for-a-hound Here's a knitted people version but it's very easily made in crochet: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kjif-hood.html
  14. I can't seem to be able to get the pattern to open for me and I don't see it on their website... Help!! My Mom wants a shrug and I'm wondering if it is something that would be good for her...then I'll join in. Thanks Chris
  15. You are unbelievable! I would like to spend a day in your brain! What an imagination and what a brainutiful shawl. Another great job!
