Free Pattern Friday – Sadie Sampler Half Circle Shawl by Kristin Omdahl

This is a gorgeous shawl, and I’m definitely going to be making this in November when I have the money for the yarn.

I love how the designer has layered all the different stitches to make something so light, lacy and feminine!

If you decide to make this, please share pictures of it finished! I’ll be linking this post to the one I’ll be making of the shawl once I’ve made it.

Free Crochet Pattern Friday: Crochet Halloween Fun!

Just found some really cute(and free)patterns on

Personally, I’m going to make the top hat as soon as I can get the materials. I can always change the colors to match whatever occasion I want.

Happy hooking!

Free Pattern Friday: Tablecloth Pt 6

I am learning some more new stitches. One of them, the star stitch, I’ve never even heard of! For those of you who are new here, I am adapting an afghan pattern called Rings of Change into a tablecloth using all the crochet thread in my stash I can. These threads are all sizes and colors, and I’m doing my best to arrange the colors as pleasing as possible.

This pattern is a paid pattern found on Ravelry and created by Frank O’Randle. He has the first 42 rounds of this 112 round pattern made into Mini Rings of Change, and it’s free.

Here is what the star stitch looks like on my piece:

In the above picture, you see Fan Stitch on the very top, next one down are ch2 and ch1 spaces and single crochets. The third line which you can barely see is made up of all double crochets. The next row down are the Star Stitches. Personally, I don’t think they look like stars…

Since Mr. O’Randle’s written instructions on how to make the star stitch left much to be desired, I went elsewhere to find out how to create this stitch, and I found it on my go to site: The Spruce Crafts

The above is the picture of her swatch of star stitches. I still don’t see any stars….

After the Fan Stitch which, I have made before, comes the Double Treble Stitch. I have never had cause to use this stitch, and it’s going to be a thread eater. Still, I have a full ball of green thread I can use for this row.

I’m up to row 62 now with another 50 to go, I think. Something like that. I may add some extra rows to give it more length. I’m going to start taking picture of it draped over the table I’m making it for so you can gauge my progress better that way. 🙂

Blog Sharing Saturday: Crystalized Designs

This blog is owned and run by Crystal. She’s a fantastic designer who shares a ton of free patterns on her blog! She also has a lovely website and a shop where she sells even more patterns! Each pattern is wonderful made and fully tested before being presented to the public.

I enjoy the emails I get from her, and she doesn’t overload me with them either which is a relief.

One of the first patterns I ever saw of her was the Gnome Wall Hanging, and it’s the cutest thing ever!

How adorbs are these guys!!

They look like they might be complicated but after reading over the pattern, I don’t think they’ll be all that hard to make. When I’m done with my long list of projects, this is going on the new one. Try it out today:

Gnome Wall Hanging

Post pictures if you make one or all of them!! I’d love to see them!

Free Pattern Friday! Crocheted Baby Hat

It’s that time of year again to make cute baby things for your baby or for those you know who have, or are expecting, babies of their own.

Fave Crafts has the cutest baby hat, and the pattern is free! What’s not to love about that!

Baby Blue Hat

If you make this hat, please share a picture of it! I’d like to see it!

Free Pattern Friday! : Potholder and Dishcloth

This is a crochet pattern I’ve used in the past to make housewarming gifts. It’s a fun little pattern!

Simple Border Potholder and Dishcloth

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.

Free Pattern Friday! Gnome Wall Hanging

This is a fantastic pattern created by Crystal at Crystalized Designs!!! She does some incredible work, and if you join her newsletter, you’ll get access to lots of great content!

This pattern features a cute gnome in three different ways. It’s well written and easy to follow.

Change of Topics for Fridays

I’d begun the year writing about fake games and apps for my Friday posts. The games, the majority of them, were scams, and I had to spend way too much time just trying to get the minimum amount required to request a payout. It became too time consuming, and I have too much to do to waste time. So, my final word on the matter is a small piece of advice: If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

So, what will I be writing about on Fridays from now on?? My second favorite thing to do by myself:


I happen to enjoy crocheting a great deal. I was taught at the tender age of 10 by a nice old lady who volunteered her time at the children’s home I was living in at the time. The Rio Grande Valley Children’s Home was the name of it, and I lived there for a few years in the late 70s and early 80s.

Ever since I learned how to crochet, I’ve never wanted to stop. I could keep my hands busy while watching television and even focus better on conversations – Attention Deficit Disorder was unheard of back then. My mother thought I was mentally deficient because of the issues I had, and she never missed a chance to tell me – it was a difficult time.

Now, a million years later, I want to share my love for crochet with you, my readers, better than just showing you things I’ve made. I’m not a designer, but I am a researcher. I tend to lose myself for hours looking at patterns. I have nearly three pages full of bookmarks on my computer, I kid you not! I’m thinking about going through my bookmarks and finally doing the projects I’ve got earmarked. They’re all free patterns so you won’t have to buy any. With this is mind, I’m going to share with you a lovely pattern I found just in time for Valentine’s Day!! It’s called the Sweetheart Spike Scarf, and the pattern was created by Whitney at Pine Tree Crochet. Go to the link below for the pattern:

Sweetheart Spike Scarf

If you decide to make the scarf please, let me and Whitney know – especially Whitney, and I’m sure we’d both love to see what you made as well!! Have fun!
