  1. Thank you. I love shawl patterns.
  2. I love the blue butterfly.
  3. If I wanted to make a smaller blanket by this pattern (for baby), can anyone tell me how many I would need to chain? I tried calculating from the first of the instruction to the end of the repeat but I got frustrated. Thanks.
  4. There is a John Deere afghan that I think might be used to honor the Horned God if you just left the words 'John Deere' of and did the deer. I have never learned to read the charted patterns so I don't know the pros and cons of adjusting a charted pattern. It is at: http://crochetparfait.blogspot.com/2013/03/john-deere-afghan.html#
  5. Oh, I love the one in your first link but I've never learned to read a chart. I may learn just to do this tree The one with the sun, moon, etc, I added to my favorites at Ravelry so I can get it later.
  6. Thank you! I knew I had had one at one time because it was on a square - an apple tree square. Well, I couldn't find it because it was NOT an apple tree square but a 'cherry blossoms square' and it was by Mary Jane Wood. I'm going to check out the links you shared, Empress! But here's the link to the one I found - obviously 'allfreecrochet has picked it and I'm pretty sure it was on an individual site when I found it a few years back. I am thrilled to have found it again: http://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/Granny-Square/Cherry-Blossoms-Square/ct/1#
  7. This is gorgeous! I'm a sucker for shawl patterns! I have three file folders full of printed out shawl/wrap patterns plus a ton more saved on disk to print as I need them.
  8. Hi! I'm in the process of doing a quilt block that will be joined with others that friends are doing. Since I really don't know much about quilting - after looking all day for the pattern I want online, I decided I'd do what I do best - I'd crochet and then sew the things on to the quilt square. We've got a 'May Day' theme for the lap quilt and I decided to go with butterflies, flowers, etc. But I would really like to have a tree motif also. All I found online are for Christmas trees and I don't want a Christmas tree. Thanks for any help you can give me.
  9. I still haven't been able to try this again because my hands have been so stiff. However, I have made quite a few of these and I did it by following my written pattern. When I do it again (as soon as I can) I will do it as if I were someone seeing it for the first time. It's been so long since I made one, it will feel like it is.
  10. I found it just last night and snagged a copy. Love it. Thanks.
  11. I will try and make another one as soon as my hands will let me. It's been quite some since I've worked with anything this small. Thanks for the heads-upl
  12. Thanks, Champy Girl. this is great.
  13. This is my favorite also with the 'angel wings shawl' a close second.
  14. I got there too late - is now $4.99 except to 'prime members' which I am not.
  15. Oh I Love the one on Etsy! Hope to get it soon! Thanks!
