121  Crochet Gryphon Dragon Filet and Afghan ---->Free Pattern Links in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: June 19, 2010 10:10:01 AM






For your pleasure here is a chart that can be made 3 different ways
For the filet, use #10 thread and a #7 steel hook. You will get a piece about 23 inches by 25 inches

The chart for the afghan is a little different. You can make it either bottom to top or side by side. Use you favorite worsted weight yarn and a hook sized I (5.5mm). It's suitable for single crochet or tunisian or whatever crochet stitch you like.

Of course I like to share my free patterns with you.

122  Crochet For Men...Tightie Whities!!! With Free Pattern Link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: June 13, 2010 01:17:35 PM




There are not that many images for men to work up in filet. Here are the iconic white briefs done in two versions, plain filet and lacet filet. The size is about 10 inches square and you'll need #10 thread, about 201 yards.

Find the free pattern here:

If you need a refresher in how to do the lacet filet stitch, I have a free tutorial here:

This is my take on the pants dishcloths. I used an extended double crochet stitch and 2 colors of worsted cotton yarn. I also include a printable poem to go with the pants if you're making them for a gift.

129  Opera Gloves in the Summer Wave Stitch with Shortie Variation with Pattern Link! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: May 07, 2010 06:12:07 AM





This is a portion of the stitch and is part of the slide show close-ups.

Catherine de Medici, the medieval Queen of France, popularized the wearing of gloves. However, it was the Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte that started a nationwide craze for long gloves that spread throughout all of Europe and and America.

These glove work up fast! I used 2 ounces of  Bernat super Value in the color Soft Forest Green and an I/5.5mm hook. As with all the patterns I post here, it is free for your personal enjoyment.
There is also a slide show with the step-by-steps to help you in your ease of construction.

Free pattern is here:

130  Red Rooster with link to a FREE pattern and tutorial in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: May 06, 2010 09:10:41 AM




Chickens and roosters are very popular for kitchen motifs. I made mine with red thread and a #7 steel hook. It turned out 11x 12 inches. I used a lacet stitch for the background.

I am sharing the free pattern with you to make your own Red Rooster:
