127  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:

Have fun!

128  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:

or for a plain filet:


If you would like to learn the lacet stitch, I have a free tutorial here:

Happy Crocheting!

129  Stag in a Forest Scene Filet with a Free Pattern Link! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: May 02, 2010 09:26:55 AM

A member here had posted a window hanging she did from a chart that she found in a book called Grandma's Crochet. It looked familiar to me so I checked my personal library of vintage and antique patterns and I found it! It was in a tiny book with a black cover that said
"Stricken und Hkelarbeit". The date on the inside cover was 1898, so this pattern is very old! The text is printed in an Old German calligraphy.

I re-charted it. Using Aunt Lydia's thread in Tan, the piece measures 17x14 inches.

If you would like to make your own stag, the chart is free.
You can find it here:
