93  How to Recycle a T-Shirt into Spaghetti Yarn and turn it into a Tote--->Free! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: February 02, 2011 07:21:32 AM








What do you do when a friend gives you dozens of t-shirts?  Make Spaghetti Yarn, of course! Then crochet a striped tote with flower doo-dads.

6 extra large shirts and a P/11.5mm hook is all it takes to make one for yourself.

 I put together a photo tutorial of how to make the spaghetti yarn. You can find it here:

The free pattern for the tote is here:

An extra large shirt yielded 34 yards of Spaghetti Yarn.

I will be designing more free patterns with the Spaghetti Yarn and hope you enjoy my first one.

Love,
Maria

94  Toddler Girl Sweater with Link to Free Pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: January 30, 2011 09:40:08 AM







Here is a sweater for a toddler, sized for 1, 2, or 3. It's worked by making the components, then crocheting them together, making the yoke from the bottom up. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Petal Pink and Susan Bates H hook. Because the yarn is thick, I chose a block stitch that is very flexible. There are only 2 short seams to sew at the sides and instead of buttons I made hyperbolic closures

If you would like to make this sweater, here is the free pattern:

I hope you enjoy crocheting this darling sweater!

Love,

95  Wristlet in a Color Block pattern with Contrasting Popcorns-->Free Pattern Link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: January 17, 2011 05:35:03 AM




These wristlets are a good way to use up your yarn scraps. I used worsted weight and an H/5.00mm aluminum hook. The green and purple one is made from dish cloth cotton. All you need is one ounce each of 2 different colors. There are a couple of rows of color change, but don't be intimidated. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy! . Make one for every outfit!

The free pattern can be found on my Yahoo page:

This one is about 20 inches high in the extended double crochet, but feel free to use the dc or even a treble. I used thread and a # 7 vintage Lee wards hook to make it.

Hope you enjoy making it!

98  Day of the Dead Skull Doily or Afghan Square---> Link to Free Pattern and tute! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: January 16, 2011 11:32:46 AM




I made this with Red Heart Super Saver in Pink and used an H/5mm hook. The stitch I selected was the extended Double crochet stitch (edc). My piece came out 16 inches tall. If you use the dc stitch, it will be 13 inches high. This goes fast as it's only 24 squares x 24 squares. Of course you may use thread and a steel hook for a smaller unit.

This is a free pattern! I have also given you the link for a photo tutorial so you can learn the edc. It is not that difficult, very similar to a dc, but with an extra yarn over.

For the free pattern click here:

To view the photo slide show of the edc, click here:

I hope you enjoy this project! Please tell me what you think.

Love,

99  Praying Hands in Filet includes free pattern link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: July 06, 2010 03:27:35 AM


It took me a while to get this praying hands image the way I wanted it to look. I added a cross to the upper right side but if you  prefer a piece without the cross, just work the plain filet when you get to it. The cuffs are made with a lacet stitch, very simple and goes quickly. My materials were #10 thread and a #7 steel hook. I used a vintage Lee Wards hook. It turned out about 9x13 inches.

Free pattern can be found here:
