  1. Yes, I understand that. 🙂
  2. Yes, I'll post a link if she winds up selling the pattern.
  3. I saw the picture on a Facebook group. I was able to message the lady who posted the picture to Facebook. She lives in Germany. She said she made up the pattern as she crocheted. I told her she should write it down and sell the pattern. It's so unique and beautiful!
  4. Hi Rubyred- Thanks for trying to help! No, it's not my afghan. I saw it on the web and saved the picture. It appears to be original colors and made in one piece.
  5. Looking for a pattern similar to this one: Edited: I learned it was an original design, so I removed the photo.
  6. Here's another cowl: https://theyarnowlhandmade.wordpress.com/2014/09/30/the-claire-cowl-free-crochet-pattern-inspired-by-outlander/
  7. Here is another interesting article on crochet history: http://www.crochet.org/?page=CrochetHistory
  8. Wow, that Highlander club is expensive! I noticed lots of knit and crochet Outlander-type patterns have been popping up on Pinterest. I was reading an article that said the knitware is the real star of the show. I learned the costume designer for the show, Terry Desbach, has her own blog (link is her full name dot com). It's really interesting to read and it has forums for discussion. The show currently takes place in the mid 1700's and the 1940's. I don't think crochet was done in mid-1700's Scotland? (on crochet.org there's a good article titled "History of Crochet by Ruthie Marks"). It would be lovely to see some crochet pop up in the show in the 1940's scenes
  9. Thank you! I couldn't figure out how to post a link, but if you do a Google search for "Outlander Claire images" you can see actual examples from the show.
  10. Would love to find some free pattern links to crocheted versions of the knitted capelets/ cowls the character Claire wears in the show Outlander.
  11. The costume designer, Terry Dresbach, has her own blog with forums for discussion. It would be wonderful to see some crochet in the next 8 episodes.
  12. I love that show! I saw an interview where the actress who plays Claire said they employ knitters in Scotland where they film the show.
  13. Not the brand shown on the blog below. (I don't like working with wool). Just something similar to the 2nd and 3rd pictures down: http://dutchsister-s.blogspot.com/2011/06/tropical-monday.html
  14. Here's a baby jacket I saw on a random blog that's done in modern bright colors. http://pinterest.com/pin/11694908/ Link to the original pattern, pdf form: http://poppalina.typepad.com/Myms_Wedding_Jacket_Pattern.pdf
  15. I hope these pictures show up. Just random pretty crocheted things someone had posted on the site Pinterest. sweater: http://pinterest.com/pin/11694908/ pillow: http://pinterest.com/pin/13957890/ umbrella: http://pinterest.com/pin/8771495/ scarf: http://pinterest.com/pin/7394468/

    Flower throw

    Are there any flower throw patterns around similar to this Anthropogie one? http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=993345&catId=HOME-PILLOWS&pushId=HOME-PILLOWS&popId=HOME&navAction=top&navCount=84&color=012&isProduct=true&fromCategoryPage=true&isSubcategory=true&subCategoryId=HOME-ROOM-THROWS
  18. I saw these paper crochet pillows in a Pottery Barn Catalog: http://www.potterybarn.com/products/paper-crochet-pillow-cover/ 'Looking for a pillow pattern like this as well as a source for the paper "yarn" used. Thank you!
  19. Something I came across while surfing the web. Scroll down all the way for lots of pics of the dress. It has such beautiful crochet: http://thenicholsblog.com/2009/08/09/amy-greg/
  20. I saw these on a blog I like to read and thought they were so pretty. Has anyone seen a link to the vintage pattern for this set? Thank you. Here's a direct link to a photo click "open" to see it http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_x908CSKJhI4/SxxAddUJpsI/AAAAAAAAMGY/NXorOuslZco/s800/Crocheted+luncheon+set+074.JPG or, if that picture won't work for you, here's a link to the blog. The glass jackets can be seen in the second row of pictures at the very beginning of the blog.(2nd row, 3rd from the left). OR, Here's a direct link to the blog. If you currently scroll about 3/4ths of the way down on the blog's 1st page, the pink and white table setting has the glass jackets and matching placemats pictured two times in bigger pictures. http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ (These two pictures may be on the second ot later pages of the blog, depending on when you read my question).
  21. I'm searching for a pattern for a coffee mug sweater. These are different-looking than the wraps I've seen for Starbucks-type take out cups. The sweater has a "hole" that lets it fit around a mug handle. It also has a tiny button above the hole that lets the user button and unbutton the wrap around the mug. If you have a Caribou Coffee store near you, I've seen them sold there. Theirs are knitted and look especially cute because they have a cable/fisherman's-style sweater look. Here's a picture: http://www.cariboucoffee.com/asp/shop/detail.asp?c=4&p=678 Of course, I'm looking for crocheted versions. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I enjoy drinking my hot tea from a mug and think these are adorable. Thank you!
  22. Her web site is adorable too. If you click on her "gallery" you can see all kinds of cute things she's made.
