  1. Thanks LI Roe. I must have posted my inquiry just before the updates were posted. I too am disappointed in the way CPC is being maintained and I don’t like the current interface at all. I hope that the new management will hit their stride after they have had additional experience with the site. If the site is not adequately updated then I fear the links in the existing Pattern Directory will soon fall into disrepair and that will be a loss. I agree with Empress Busy Bee that Ravelry is a very good site that has lots of useful information and provides new content every day. For the very latest hot projects, designs, colors and styles I will go to Ravelry first. I just believe that more than one or two search tools adds value to pattern seekers as each directory has its own focus and methodology. Sometimes more really is more. The CPC Pattern Directory Rachel compiled has performed well as a thoughtful collection of patterns providing a solid overview of crochet designs over a fairly long period in time. It has been especially valuable for accessing patterns only to be found on a blog and not reposted by the blogger elsewhere. Old salts like me also appreciate that it can used to locate old standbys and favorite vintage projects and those new to crochet often observe that the content is not too overwhelming in volume. Sometimes less is more. Vive la différence.
  2. The pattern updates seem to have stopped completely for at least three weeks. I wondered if anyone knows the future plans for this site. It was such a treasure under Rachel’s management and would be a great loss to the online crochet community if it were not longer updated.
  3. The Columbia-Minerva booklet, “Granny Ripple Diamonds", identified in ReniC’s post can be purchased used from a number of sellers. The afghan on the cover is very close to the pattern dolpicker is seeking.http://www.amazon.com/Afghans-Crochet-Leaflet-2522-Columbia-Minerva/dp/B0016660N8
  4. I am fairly certain the pictured poncho is from a free Plymouth Yarn Pattern, Alpaca Boucle – F-NO15, Springy Pink Poncho, designed by Lainie Hering. It was one of many pattern interpretations of the wildly popular Martha Stewart Coming Home Poncho. It had a slightly less lacy bottom and a flatter neckline. The picture looks just like the poncho I made from this pattern. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fn015-alpaca-boucle-poncho The free pattern does not seem to be on the Plymouth site any longer but they may provide a copy upon request.

  6. I am wondering if you are looking for a cradle purse, a purse that turns into a cradle for a tiny baby doll. The bottom of the purse was made from a plastic tub and the top of the purse was crocheted into holes punched in the sides of the tub. They were often called church purses because little children could play quietly with the doll during church services. There are many free patterns available for these, most just don’t use the plastic tubs any longer. Here’s an example. http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=78834
  7. Here’s a vintage popcorn pattern (aka Vintage Wedding Ring) from Mrs. Micawber. There appear to be plenty of color choices to allow traditional to marry modern. http://www.meme-rose.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/vintage-popcorn-pattern.html http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/vintage-popcorn-square

  12. They are called 'slipover' bibs. I believe Laurie Clark has a free pattern listed on Ravelry for one.
  13. This Grape Harvest Doily is a nice starter pattern that is very satisfying. http://crochet.vrya.net/grapeharvest.php http://www.anniesattic.com/free_pattern_day/popcorn_grape_harvest_doily.html EugeneClarence
