  1. I've been dreaming to design a stained glass mandala since long ago. And my dream has come true. This double layered mandala potholder is crocheted in overlay crochet technique with elements of tapestry crochet. When not used in the kitchen it can be hung on a wall. And if you don't crochet a bottom part for this potholder it can serve as a decoration for a table or a nice appliqué for your old (or new) pillow cover. This easy to follow pattern (16 pages) is written for one size It contains step by step full written instructions in English using standard crochet abbreviations and US terms (stitch guide is given in the pattern). It also contains lots of pictures explaining all the tricky and difficult places. Crochet level: Intermediate (front post stitches are used in this pattern and some rounds are crocheted with yarns of two colors at the same time). http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/stained-glass-mandala-potholder
  2. This is my new pattern of a pillow cover published on Ravelry yesterday. This crocheted Dahlia decoration for pillow cover consists of 9 square motifs made in Overlay crochet technique. If you use other colour palette for this pattern, your pillow cover will look completely different, and unique. Many Popcorn stitches used in this pattern give the whole design nice volume and structure. This square motif can be also used for blankets, bags or just as an appliqué for clothes, curtains and so on. The motif is very thick as it has two layers due to large amount of overlay stitches. So if you decide to crochet a double sided pillow cover – you will not even have to buy or sew a fabric pillow case.
  3. This is a pattern of pillow cover which I called “Lucky Quatrefoil”. Pillow cover consists of square motifs crocheted in the Overlay Crochet technique. They remind me of quatrefoils which are famous for bringing good luck to people. But at the same time they look like small butterflies as well. The square motif can not only become a part of pillow decoration, but you can also crochet a blanket or a bag with it or just use it as an appliqué for clothes. This easy to follow pattern of a square motif (10 pages) is written for one size. It contains step by step full written instructions in English using standard crochet abbreviations and US terms (stitch guide is given in the pattern). It also contains lots of pictures explaining all the tricky and difficult places and how the motifs are joined. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lucky-quatrefoil-pillowcase

  5. Hi there! I have become so much addicted to the overlay crochet technique. It is so magic, so unique and gives so many possibilities! It is like drawing with yarn - layer after layer. You can choose any colors you like and the result is always unpredictable. I have recently released a new pattern for a mandala potholder. I think this is my best design ever, I felt so much of creative energy while making it as if I was connected directly to the space. It can be used not only as a potholder, but also become a nice decoration for a pillow cover (for example). And in many more ways! You can find more patterns with mandalas in my Ravelry shop http://www.ravelry.com/stores/lilla-bjorn-crochet-designs
  6. I was inspired by some beautiful overlay crochet motifs I saw on Pinterest and decided to make a pattern of my own and put it on a cute tote to carry around my projects in progress. My flower is not as bulky looking as other overlay crochet motifs I have seen because it doesn't overlay multiple rows over the entire motif. I used the technique sparingly to give the flower some dimension. Pattern available here. The pattern is written in great detail and includes in-progress pictures to help explain it better. Enjoy! Feel free to check out my blog for many more FREE crochet (and knit) patterns and project ideas.
  7. Hello crocheters, I had to re-register with Crochetville because I can't find my sign-in info. Probably on a computer that went belly-up years ago... Anyway, I'm on a hunt for an afghan pattern. A crocheter emailed my web site looking for a Melody MacDuffee afghan pattern she had seen on my Photobucket photo storage space. That was no problem, I had noted which issue of Crochet Fantasy had the pattern, so she found one (on Etsy, I think) and was happy with that. In the meantime, I mentioned that Melody had previous designed a one-piece afghan with the same overlay design, but it was a one-piece rather than motifs. As I recall, CF got so much interest about that pattern that they asked crocheters to send them pictures of their finished afghans to be published in another issue! Well, I can't remember the name of the afghan, the issue, even the year. And it's making us both crazy trying to find it. Nobody I've asked remembers it, it's not on Ravelry, and we've hunted all over the internet looking for it. I know it has to be before issue #147 (2001) because that's when the motif afghan pattern (Kaleidoscope) was published. We are hoping that somebody recognizes it, so we can put our fevered memories at rest! I don't know how to add an actual picture, so here is a link to the motif afghan picture. I'm hoping somebody will recognize it http://s3.photobucket.com/user/countryyarns/media/Looking%20for%20these/kaliedoscope.jpg.html?sort=4&o=10
  8. I have been getting ready for guests, and as part of that I have had to deal with several yarn/crochet dump sites in my guestroom. I began work on this ages ago after I took Melody MacDuffee's overlay crochet course. Here is a link to my blog post which includes a link to the scribd page that has ordering information for Melody's course on this technique (the materials are an excellent introduction to this technique). I no longer remember just what I did to make this, so I am going to weave in the ends, call it day for this swatch, and consider doing something for this year's state fair using the technique.
  9. I'm happy to report that (at my blog) Melody MacDuffee's Overlay Crochet Course is once again available. Here is my blog post with all of the details how you can purchase it, and here are the swatches I made using the instructions in the course materials that are once again available.
