  1. So, I recently found some old thread my grandmother had given me that used to belong to her mother in law (possibly? We aren't quite sure...). Inside the cardboard I found some old snowflake/doilie beauties and was inspired to try my hand at my own! Im quite happy with how my first one turned out!
  2. Hi everyone, I am trying to truly create a pattern for the first time. I have altered/ modified patterns before to suit my tastes and that's been a useful learning tool, but now I am wanting to create from the ground up. Here's what I have: - I know I want it to be a triangular shawl - I know what I want the pattern to look like, I have drawn it out. - I know which way I want it to work, which is from the bottom tip upwards ( not from the center neck outward, and not in vertical rows, and not one long chain and decreasing my way down) - it's going to be a series of staggered flowers, and in the in between rows, little staggered ch1 spaces The issue: I'm completely at a loss for how to execute this, I don't know how many stitches I need to have before starting the first flower, OR how to make sure the stitches in the in between row are lined up. I also don't know what it needs to be increased by every time. Basically, the numbers and the math of this is what's so hard. I am racking my brain. Is there a better way I could go about this? is there some sort of charting program people use to make sure stuff lines up? I attached my drawing. So both the flowers and the little chain 1 holes or spaces both create columns and the flowers increase by odd numbers and spaces increase by even. My issue is how to increase every row so that this works out. Thank you so so much, I am really thankful for any help.
  3. Looking for this pattern that my sister-in-law and I saw on a Facebook thread crochet group very recently. The crocheter said that she finished this recently from a pattern she found on Google or Pinterest some time ago, and said that was the only information she had. I've spent more hours than I'd like to admit searching for it this weekend, and my sister-in-law has put in quite a few hours herself. Any help appreciated!
  4. There is a very talented person called Honorata who I usually meet during craft markets. She sells her wonderful crochet works. A week ago I found her in Szreniawa - a Museum of Agriculture near my town Poznań. There was an Easter market - you could buy any hand made items you could think of. There were workshops for kids and they could watch farm animals - even chicks hatching out of eggs. When I met Honorata, I bought a beautiful lace egg from her. I didn't plan to make any Easter decorations this year, but that egg was talking to me... and talking... and talking... So finally I made my own too. Well, for the first one I just copied the one I bought, but making the second and the third one I changed some elements. I gave my eggs to my mum and my mother-in-law.
  5. Hiya, So while cleaning out some of my crochet stash, I had an idea I thought was totally brilliant. The problem is that I don't know if its completely possible and kind of don't want to try if its not going to work. Anyways, I rediscovered a single motif pattern that I've managed to adapt to be able to crochet it into an endless pattern in nearly any shape, so my next thought is whether I can turn this motif into clothing. I mean this as in does anyone know if it would be possible to crochet pieces of a dress/shirt/skirt pattern from a sewing pattern then sew the edges together with a sewing machine? Keep in mind this would all be done with lace weight crochet thread, so not only will making the pieces be time consuming but hand sewing them would be as well. Which is why I thought my machine sewing idea was brilliant. Does anyone have experience making whole garment with various pieces of crocheted "fabric"? If so any advice?

    Lacy handbag

    Let me introduce my lacy handbag Once I found out I don't have any cream coloured small handbag to match my dress… So I decided to make one. I crocheted the same squares as I used for my daughter's dress. I made the bag's base of felt so it won't stretch. The flower is the pin because I couldn't decide if I want the flower or not
  7. Hi Everyone! We all know that gift-giving time is approaching and you might be looking for some pretty things to add to your list, if you are going to be giving handmade gifts this year. Adalene is ideal for you! It is relatively easy and it works up really fast, doesn't take up an entire skein of yarn and you can whip up several to give away to female friends, relatives, co-workers, etc, who love feminine cowls. This pattern has been very popular at Craftybegonia blog and I want to share it with you all. It is also great for those of you who crochet for charity, since the winter months are crucial. You will find the free pattern here: http://craftybegonia.blogspot.com/2016/09/adalene.html Take care! Clotilde
  8. Hi Everyone! The fall will be here in not time at all and I'd like to share with those of you who love easy and pretty cowls my latest free pattern.

  9. So I'm having trouble with this doily patter I've found. The part I'm having trouble with is the section with the cluster of 3 ch. 5s. I just finished the previous row and I am so confused on how to start the next row. If anyone understands what I'm talking about I would really appreciate the help!

  12. I am started to knit very small a doily from the center. Now I mastered quite well and I can begin bigger projects. Some patterns of my work it is possible to buy http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/home-decor/doily-lace-ditte-ii/126765?rceId=1430555817715~wk53etxp
  13. I searched the forum first and did not see a topic concerning Spider Lace. I recently came across a pineapple block (Japanese pattern) and it took me quite a while to find the pattern. In the act of searching it occurred to me that there are some similarities in the construction and visual appeal of spider lace and crochet pineapple construction. I was wondering about the relationship and history of these two patterns and was wondering if anyone was aware of any information on this topic. Also I am interested to know if anyone else is interested in spider lace or the topic of these two forms of lace in general. The picture attached is the pattern I refer to. Thank you, Jackie
  14. These naughty little kittens will dress up your windows for sure! It's worked in the filet stitch and lacet stitch,with thread. If you would like the free charts, one has the lacet the other is straight filet, go here: Cats Playing in the Curtains Maria
  15. Hi Everyone! I'd like to share with you this pretty and easy cowl. The beauty about Kathleen is that it incorporates different stitches and when you turn it around on your neck it looks different, depending on what stitches you bring to the front. It is pretty easy and it's a less than one skein project. It is ideal for gift-giving and also for charity since it works up really fast. You can make it one sitting if you have the time. Here is where you will get the free pattern: http://www.craftybegonia.blogspot.com/2014/11/kathleen.html#.VGWvVzQ7uw0 Enjoy! Clotilde/Craftybegonia
  16. I'm hosting a Crochet Charm Lace Along, with lots of support over at my blog, in hopes of enticing you to try this interesting technique! Crochet Charm Lace is made of separate motifs that can be made in any yarn, any fiber, any size. Gauge is not important. (Did you break into a smile when you read that last bit?) Basically, you crochet and finish a bunch of motifs. Arrange and pin them face-down on a fabric template (it will not be part of your finished project). Sew the motifs together wherever they touch. Remove pins and fabric, turn over the finished piece, and be amazed! Because the holidays can be so busy, the end of January seems like a good finish date. Please post here if you want to join in--then we can help each other.

  17. Inspired with a special charm of rainy days, this rustical shawl looks like a piece of nature. It has gorgeous mild drape and can be weared as a scarf or kerchief. Easy&quick, but needs good blocking to open up the lace pattern. Pattern has written step-by-step instructions and charts. Size is easy adjustable, you can choose any yarn weight from Thread to Sport, just go down/up with the hook size. Pattern for Overcast and other beautiful shawls can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/designers/katya-novikova
  18. Hi all, I have never attempted a shawl before as I live in sunny Singapore and it never occurred to me to make one. I saw several beautiful designs online and decided to try making one. The basic pattern is one that I have designed for two different bags. Here are the photos of the completed project: I am almost done writing up the pattern with photos included and will be looking for pattern testers soon. Would love comments on the design before I post for testers. Thanks for looking.

  20. Made this from an AA free pattern adding the shell rows myself.
  21. This is a purple doily i'm working on by using a picture.
  22. I was in the mood for something small and easy. Something cool and girly. Arm Warmers.. they are getting really popular now and I think they're fab! I found a picture on a Russian site of a Lace stitch, it's basically the broom lace stitch, without the broom. And I hate the broom! These are really easy to make. You can download it here. Supplies: Yarn. Any yarn would do, just add a multiple of 5 to get to the desired length. Hook needle. It depends on the yarn which needle to use. Yarn needle, to weave in ends. Size: This is very easy to convert to different size. The length: The begin chain has to be a multiple of 5 plus 3 for the first DC. For a child aged 2-3 you chain 30 plus 3 Child aged 4-6 you chain 40 plus 3 Child aged 6-10 you chain 50 plus 3 Child/teen aged 10-14 you chain 60 plus 3 Teen/adult you chain 70 plus 3 Adult you chain 80 plus 3 The width: Is changeable by adding rows of DC after R5 and R13 For a child aged 2-3 you add 1 row of DC Child aged 4-6 you add 2 row of DC Child aged 6-10 you add 3 row of DC Child/teen aged 10-14 you add 4 row of DC Teen/adult you add 5 row of DC Adult you add 6 row of DC And the same amount on the other side The thumb hole For a child aged 2-3 you add the thumb hole in the DC Row after R5, start with 4DC and CH2. Child aged 4-6 you add the thumb hole in the DC Row after R5, start with 5DC and CH3. Child aged 6-10 you add the thumb hole in the second DC Row, R7, start with 6DC and CH3. Child/teen aged 10-14 you add the thumb hole in the second DC Row, R7, start with 6DC and CH4. Teen/adult you add the thumb hole in the third DC Row, R8, start with 8DC and CH4. Adult you add the thumb hole in the third DC Row, R8, start with 8DC and CH4. This is a guideline, the size of the hook you use and the yarn is also important, for this pattern I used yarn 10wpi and hook 5 for the pink arm warmers and for the blue green arm warmers I used yarn 12wpi and hook 3.5. And don't forget to switch sides of the thumb hole So the second arm warmer has the DC row with thumb hole on the second part of the arm warmer. I will follow the pattern the teen/adult. R1, CH73, in third CH from hook and the next 4CH after that, pull up a loop, (you have 6 loops on your hook now, 5 big loops and your normal loop), insert hook through all loops, YO, pull through first 5 loops and make a SC with your normal loop, 4SC through the same 5loops, *pull up loop in next 5CH, 5SC through the same 5loops*, repeat till the end. Turn. - 70 R2, *CH4, SLST in between DCclusters*, repeat till end, CH3 and turn. - 70 R3, *pull up loop in next 5CH from R2, 5SC through the same 5loops*, repeat till the end. Turn. - 70 R4, *CH4, SLST in between DCclusters*, repeat till end, CH3 and turn. R5, *Dc2together, DC, DC2together* in each CH4Space till end, CH3 and turn. - 42 R6 and R7, DC in each st till end, CH3 and turn. - 42 R8, DC in next 8st, CH4, skip 4st, DC in each st till end, CH3 and turn. - 42 R9 and R10, DC in each st till end, fasten off after R10. - 42 R11, SLST on the first CH of R1, *CH4, SLST in between DCclusters*, repeat till end, turn. - 70st R12, *Dc2together, DC, DC2together* in each CH4Space till end, CH3 and turn. - 42 R13 and R17, DC in each st till end, CH3 and turn. - 42 Fold work, good side in, SLST both sides together using outer loops. Edge topside (finger side) with SC. Weave in ends. Tip: The tail of the first Chain is finger side. For the second arm warmer, switch rows 6 - 10 with rows 13 - 17. And on the thumb row, R15, DC in next 30st, CH4, skip 4st, DC in last 8st.
  23. I made this as a gift
  24. Trying to find a lace skull pattern. I found a picture of a lace skull that I absoloutely love but I can't seem to find a pattern for anything anywhere similar to it. Anyone know of one?
  25. Hi Everyone! I have often run into beginner crocheters who talked about not finding enough pretty patterns for their skill level. Dannette is a very simple scarflet to make, yet effective enough to make the wearer feel good about her work, and if she gives it as a gift, she will feel satisfied that the receiver will be happy with it! It is a breeze to make for an advanced crocheter and it's an ideal quick gift or charity project. I made it in a rich green, but you can use your favorite color. You will find the FREE pattern here: http://craftybegonia.blogspot.com/2013/08/dannette.html
