  1. I know it's summer right now, but these slippers are fun to make and wear even in A/C and especially in the winter months!! You can make some for yourself, some for holiday gifts and even to sell in Craft Shows! https://www.etsy.com/listing/80561064/womens-crocheted-ribbed-slipper-pattern You are going to love making these! Bev
  2. They are actually just linked from my site, not actually on there. They are from judyknit.com.
  3. This is another one of my favorite patterns to make. They just turn out so warm and cute! I made a pair for myself in red, and I wear them all the time as my feet are always cold. Great to fold up and carry in your purse too or for traveling. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bevs-ribby-slippers HUGS! Bev
  4. Happy to share my reversible scarf pattern with all of you today!! It's so much fun to make and easy too. And it ends up reversible!! Great for gifts http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bevs-reversible-scarf HUGS!! Bev
  5. http://www.ravelry.com/stores/beverly-a-qualheim-designs They all make great Christmas gifts and such!
  6. If you are using an acrylic yarn, it will stretch to fit too, so making the hat about 12" width is a good rule of thumb cos it will stretch to fit most newborns whose head sizes are between 13"-14" normally. Bev
  7. I did a search but didn't find really anything - the links were broken. But thanks
  8. Something many seniors homes need is lapghans. They also ask for slippers and if you can paint some anti slip stuff on the bottoms that would be wonderful! You can use spray on stuff that you spray on the bottom of rugs. Preemie items, it all depends on your local hospitals-- usually hats, and blankets without holes. http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/preemie.html Bev
  9. I was cleaning up the grankid toys in the house and found 2 naked cabbage patch preemie dolls that I would love to crochet some clothing for--little hats and booties I can handle but a bit more would be lovely! Does anyone know where there are patterns for these cute dolls clothing? Preferably freebies online. Thanks! Bev
  10. Did you use cotton, or is it just an acrylic? Wondering if acrylic yarn will work for washcloths??
  11. Ooooh I like those colors! I am thinking of making a granny afghan for our home. Love the white around it too. I was going to do black but my eyes are getting old and I have a hard time crocheting black these days.
  12. Super cute! And looks easy too. Thanks!
  13. I've been updating my website, and am working on some new patterns to post this summer, but I wanted to post a link to my easy crocheted baby booties, as those are a good summer project to carry along in a purse. http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/bevsbooties2.html I hope some of you will make a few pair for new moms, especially new moms in need or for a hospital near you. HUGS Bev
  14. How about the pattern on this page? http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/abctree.html Or http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/hats.html
