    pilgrim man and pilgrim women

    If it's the ones from Crochet Memories, apparently she doesn't have them on her site anymore. I tried using the Wayback Machine, but it has been blocked there because of robots.txt Here is the page that referenced them, second and third pictures http://www.allfreecrafts.net/1157/free-crochet-pilgrim-patterns/

    Looking for this pattern

    Out of print, and my inventory is all gone. I found none on Amazon, but one on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-4-American-School-of-Needlework-books-A-Choir-of-Little-Angels-Doilies-/221581436053?hash=item3397486495 This one on Etsy says the owner is "taking a short break" https://www.etsy.com/listing/154672808/crochet-doily-pattern-book-wonderful

    ISO- Slipper Pattern Source

    Down in the page it says the patterns were posted with permission from Caron. I'm assuming it was a Caron leaflet or book, although it's strange that they don't mention Caron yarns. Unless that "select from group B, page 6" has a list of Caron yarns. You might try contacting the owner of the blog (Granny Judith).

    Filet stitch cottage placemat

    Not exactly the same, but very similar http://www.ebay.com/itm/PLACEMAT-HOUSE-W-SNOWMAN-APPLIQUE-HERITAGE-LACE-ECRU-1-DAY-SHIPPING-/220900678990?pt=Table_Linens&hash=item336eb4dd4e My search words were placemat, white, house, lace and "Include description" was checked. There were several others in the same style

    Filet stitch cottage placemat

    It doesn't look like filet _crochet_ but possibly netting. Also maybe not handmade but done by machine. When I click on the picture and enlarge it, there are double bars on the up/down threads that don't look like a double crochet but 2 separate threads. That's not to say it couldn't be translated into filet crochet, but to me it doesn't look like this piece is crocheted.

    Beginner baby dress/cardigan

    This is one I've been saving in my browser because it looks like an easy but very feminine pattern. It uses worsted weight yarn, but you might try using hooks one size larger than stated in the pattern http://www.justcrochet.com/free-baby-crochet-patterns04.html

    Looking for vintage bedspread motif

    Well, I just answered my own question. After remembering the freevintagecrochet website, I went back and didn't restrict my search to more than just "bedspread crochet", and there it was. http://freevintagecrochet.com/bedspread-patterns/coats301/california-modern-bedspread-pattern
  13. Has anybody seen the source for this old bedspread pattern? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/369928556866103408/ It's rolling around in my brain, but I just can't make it stay still and catch it LOL I think in the picture on the pattern, it looked more square than here where it looks almost like an octagon. TIA!

    Dinosaur Afghan

    How about this one from Puff Stitch Perfection? Sorry, I don't know how to insert a picture, just the link. http://www.crochetme.com/media/p/116500.aspx As I recall, this technique is really neat. You crochet with 2 different colors, alternating the rows. For the design, you make a long stitch in one of the color (over the other color below) where you are told, and you end up with the design. So there is no sewing pieces together and no sewing in a bazillion ends. The tails at the beginning and end of the rows are left as fringe. Not crazy about fringe, but there's probably a way to work around that. Like crocheting around the piece in sc in one color while working over the ends in that color, then working around in sc in the other color and working over the other color ends.

    Dinosaur & Construction Christmas Stockings

    How about a plain stocking with appliqued "theme" pieces? Here's a picture that kind of illustrates what I mean http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/f8/c4/b4/f8c4b4b6c2d4c01449c1b8629a64de38.jpg There are a lot of leaflets with appliques used as fridgies or for scrapbooking. In fact, I ran across one just recently that I had forgotten. Can't remember the name though. I googled crochet and scrapbooking, and I was amazed at what came up!
