25  Our Lady of Guadalupe Cross Stitch with link to free chart in Needlework: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: May 04, 2013 08:06:41 AM

I've always wanted to embroider Our Lady of Guadalupe but didn't want a big chart as I don't have that much time to devote to a single project. Here is the icon charted to a 4x6 inch size on 14 ct. aida. There are only 12 colors of floss used , so you won't go nuts gathering your supplies.

If you would like to make one for yourself or a gift, here is the link:

26  Human Heart Cross Stitch with free chart in Needlework: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: April 28, 2013 02:13:24 PM

Project Runway Seasons 11 winner, Michelle Lesniak Franklin, had a runway piece that judge Nina Garcia so absolutely loved that she begged Michelle to send her one. And what was it that Nina adored? It was a knit sweater with a human heart, bleeding.

OK, this heart isn't bleeding, but it is a human heart. Easily worked on 14 ct. aida.

29  Irish Crochet Rose with Off-Set Petals--->Free Pattern link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: April 08, 2013 01:11:14 PM

Here is a motif that uses the Irish crochet technique. Rose petal rounds are off-set in the next petal round. This gives the inner petals a beautiful frame of outer petals. Use this rose to jazz up a hat. It uses less than 1/2 ounce of yarn, so it makes a good scrap project.

The pattern is here:

30  Pentagonal Granny Stitch Square Motif Hat---free pattern link in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: April 08, 2013 01:04:51 PM

Here is a granny stitch motif hat that begins a bit differently, with a five cornered center instead of a four cornered center. By using a pentagon instead of a square, a hat can be shaped in a more human-like rounded manner. Size variances can be achieved by using a smaller or larger hook or by adding additional rows and rounds—for width, work another round of corners, for length, add more rows before working the border. Since this hat uses less than two ounces of yarn, it’s perfect for using up scraps.

Here is the free pattern:
