    Easy Pietra Shrug

    The Pietra Shrug, my newest free pattern is up on my blog, Wolf Crochet here. This design is worked as a simple rectangle. The sides are then seamed to create armholes. The border and cuffs are worked in the round. Don't be afraid to try this. The "vines" are simply slip stitch rows. On the next row, the slip stitch row is pushed to the right side of the fabric by working into a loop behind the row. Very easy. The rest is all single crochet and double crochet.

    Richelieu Scarf

    Thank you for all your very kind and complimentary comments. I had hoped that my photos of the scarf would reflect the very airy nature of the stitch but they ended up looking a bit muddy. In reality, this scarf is light-weight and has a bit of texture. Much nicer than on the photos.

    Richelieu Scarf

    Hi friends! It's been a while since I have had a free pattern to share but this morning I posted the Richelieu Scarf on my blog, Wolf Crochet. This is an easy pattern and takes only one ball of Knitting Fever Painted Desert yarn (about 437 yds). The entire pattern is comprised of single crochet, double crochet and chains. What a great gift this would make! It looks so complicated but it really isn't. he pattern can be found here.
  4. This easy side-to-side vest pattern is now up on my blog. The available size is 46" bust and hips but if you are familiar with modular crochet you can easily modify this for your own size. The pattern is here.

    Hands-free e-reader pillow

    Thank you everyone! I am working on the iPad pattern and have had to re-configure the whole thing. It seems that the little e-reader pillow does not translate well to a larger size. Laceangel has a good idea about the plastic canvas but I am going to try to avoid that with this design. We'll see how it works out...

    Hands-free e-reader pillow

    I love that idea LA but I think I am geometrically challenged! It would be difficult for me to figure out how to then incorporate the tiangular base into the square pillow! But why don't you take a shot at it?

    Hands-free e-reader pillow

    I'm sorry but I just realized that I forgot to indicate the hook size for the pattern. Begin your project with H and use it unless stated otherwise. A correction to the pattern is coming.

    Hands-free e-reader pillow

    Thank you one and all for your comments. I had a request for an ipad holder so I am going back to the drawing board to see if I can make this a bit bigger. I also believe that if I work it in 2 pieces I can avoid that awkward sewing section when joining the top to the bottom. Stay tuned...

    Hands-free e-reader pillow

    Comfy it is Jimbo! Although the 2 X 4 idea might work for your flat-screen TV!
  10. One of the main problems with my Nook has been that my hands get cramped from holding it upright while I am reading in bed. So this was a very nice little object and it was pretty to boot. A little pyramid rises from a flat pillow that has a channel to hold your book or Nook. The pyramid props it up and an attached bookmark can keep your place if you are reading a book. The pattern is intermediate difficulty and uses one skein of Red Heart Super Saver. Find it on my blog here.
  11. I am sure that Caron Simply Soft will be just perfect. It tends to be a bit lighter than regular worsted weight yarn too.
  12. Thank you for your kind comments and for looking at my pattern dear friends!
  13. I decided to gather all the tiny leftover balls of yarn that I had used for the 20 pair of mitts I had made over the holidays. Using a slightly different order of colors, I finished this new scarf project in two evenings! Of course, you can use any color order that you prefer and make it as long and as wide as you want it. Just remember that your puff stitch row must always be worked on the wrong side of your fabric. The pattern is available here.
  14. This super-easy neckwarmer is worked side-to side in worsted weight yarn. The bottom ribs will expand to lie over the shoulders when the neckwarmer is buttoned. It took 2 skeins of Martha Stewart Crafts yarn but I had enough left over to make the cute fingerless gloves by Cult of Crochet. The neckwarmer pattern is here. The glove pattern is here.
