  1. In about 1978 I made myself a very simple Tunisian crochet cotton jacket. It was a pattern in a magazine...maybe one of those women's magazines, or maybe a crochet magazine? I cut out the pattern and mounted it to a piece of cardboard, but it's been lost over the years. The pattern was really nothing more than several rectangles sewn together; no special joining or fancy stitches. It had one (wooden?) button near the neck to hold it closed. I believe the colors used in the photo were stripes of light blue and beige, although I could be wrong. During my many moves, the jacket itself has disappe

  3. Here is a new dishcloth pattern to kick off the new year. I call it the Hexagram Star Dishcloth as it has 6 points. It is a easy pattern using HDC stitches and a great way to use up scrap cotton. Here are a few pictures of ones I have made.
  4. Here is a few of the market bags I've done.
  5. Here are my first two octopuses. I made them for a charity action - "Octopuses for premature babies". They are given to the hospital, then sterilized and put into prematures' incubators. They are the only toys permitted. The octopus' tentacles remind umbilicar cord. The babies hold and squeeze it and play with it. So the octopus prevent pulling the tubes. The octopus has to be done with cotton and have specific size. I enjoyed making those two and I'm sure I'll make more. Here you can read about the action and find the pattern for octopuses: http://mynomadhome.com/octopus-for-
  6. I'm thinking of making a crochet sweater as my next project but the pattern suggests a 75% cotton, 25% viscose yarn in DK weight. What would be the benefit of using a yarn with viscose in? How would the result differ from using 100% cotton? Thank you

A nice simple pattern, and it works up quickly. Now…I have an 11-month ol
  17. I'm just in the mood to go to the beach, but there's no time for a vacation right now. So here is the result of my sandy obsession. I used hemp jewelry cord to crochet the bottom of the bag. I started with a basic single crochet rectangle, then love knot stitch in the round till that section was about 3 inches tall. Then broomstick lace in cotton yarn in the round (this was wonky to do, but I like the way it came out.) The top is a thicker novelty yarn, which I found at hobby lobby. I think it was yarn bee "mimic" but I'm not certain. I dare not show you the lining. I can croche

  19. Pattern Description: This is a little Thank You to all of you, I have been crocheting for over 40 years and I still get the same enjoyment and thrill from it, so I just want you all to have the same feeling. This is a simple little crochet bracelet and if you are a beginner in crocheting you only need to be able to do a chain and a double crochet (single crochet) and that is all... You can use any leftover yarn to practice, but I do find that the bracelets have a better finish with a cotton yarn . I do hope you enjoy making your bracelets with the added twist and I am always here to help w
