101  Leafy Ladder Stitch Scarf In Painterly Colors--->Free Pattern Link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: March 08, 2011 06:06:50 AM




I blended two strands of yarn at different points in the scarf to get a nice gradation of color. The yarn was Red Heart Super Saver and my hook size was a P/11.5 mm. This is a good way to use up your scraps as you don't have to follow what I did, but make it your own. I'm getting so many compliments on this scarf!
It's really fast to make!

Here is the pattern:

102  Plump Moon Goddess with link to free pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: March 07, 2011 04:32:58 AM


Here is a Plump Moon Goddess and her twin moon pals! I used Aunt Lydia's crochet thread,#10 in purple and my Lee Wards #7 steel hook. The size is 7x7 in inches. Also, this was made in the extended double crochet stitch to get a more accurate gauge. Using the the normal double crochet will yield a plumper goddess, but will still be very nice.

I you want the free pattern, just click here:

I would like to share this little frog chart with you today. It's 31 squares by 31 squares, so it not too big of a project to tackle. I used my favorite stitch, the extended double crochet. Finished in #10 thread and a #7 steel hook is 8x8 inches.

One Decade Wrist Chaplet


5 Decade Rosary


Rosary and Chaplet side by side

I wanted to make a rosary and also a chaplet which has less decades, and I wanted them to be entirely crocheted, including the beads, cross and medallion.

I used ordinary worsted, Red Heart Super Saver scraps that were less than 1/2 ounce. My hook was an aluminum Susan Bates F/3.75mm.The entire work was made in one piece with no stopping or joining yarns.
The rosary is 23 inches and the chaplet is 9 inches and can be worn as a bracelet.

108  Recycled T-Shirt Spaghetti Yarn Bowl or Basket ---> Free pattern link! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: February 08, 2011 06:56:56 AM



My bowl filled with Wade figurines


Empty Bowl with liner

Here is a quickie project that uses a partial ball of T-Shirt Spaghetti Yarn.
I wanted to finish off the bottom of the basket with a liner so I recycled a plastic lid and covered it with a scrap of t-shirt fabric. I like the way it looks and things don't fall out!

The measurements are 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall. I used a P/11.5 hook.

109  Crochet an Eternal Red Rose in the Filet Stitch--->Free Pattern Link in Valentine's Day by Maria Merlino on: February 07, 2011 01:27:54 PM


Here is a rose that will never die!

This chart is only 25 squares x 25 squares and can be completed in a a couple of evenings. I used #10 red thread and a my vintage Lee Ward's #7 steel hook.
I chose the extended double crochet stitch instead of the double crochet stitch to get a truer proportion, but feel free to use a double or even a triple. My piece measured 9 inches x 9 inches.

You can find the fre pattern here:
