The posts I write or share on Fridays are usually about crocheting, and I decided to share The Spruce Crafts Beginner’s series. I have been using patterns and tutorials from this site for years, and I love it. They keep their pages clean and easy to navigate without a ton of clutter. This makes it a great deal easier to use and enjoy. I think you’ll find the entire site to be fun, but here’s the beginner’s series link:
This pattern is on my list of bookmarked patterns at #6. It’s from All Free Crochet Afghan Patterns. I’m beginning to like motif blankets as long as they’re connect as you go. I have a thing about not liking to go back and weave in a ton of ends. Still, this one is made a bit differently so when I can, I’m going to make it.
I decided rather than share another free pattern, I’d share this blog post I read about pattern reading and how to do it. It’s written by Hortense over at Knitting With Chopsticks. If you haven’t found her blog by now, you’re welcome! 🙂 This blog post is well worth a read:
This gorgeous crocheted purse was designed by Jess Coppom and can be found on her website: Make and Do Crew. You will need to scroll down pretty far down to find the pattern, but it’s worth the effort!
This is on my To-Do list of things to make this year, and I definitely have the page bookmarked!
Let me know if you try this pattern as I’d love to see what you make!!
I would also like to remind everyone I am having a raffle to help me pay for Mimi’s vet bills. For more information about the raffle including what I’m raffling off, go to the post below:
This pattern uses cotton yard because it’s the best for pot holders and dishcloths. If you use a special heat resistant fabric in combination, you could use other types of yarn as well. I’d just be mindful of how flammable the yarn is or how easily it might melt.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
