102  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / How to Recycle a T-Shirt into Spaghetti Yarn and turn it into a Tote--->Free! 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.


103  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Toddler Girl Sweater with Link to Free Pattern 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!

104  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Wristlet in a Color Block pattern with Contrasting Popcorns-->Free Pattern Link 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:

105  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pot of Tea Filet Curtain -->Free pattern link on: January 17, 2011 01:43:29 AM

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!

106  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hot Coffee Filet Curtain---> Free Pattern Link on: January 17, 2011 01:34:21 AM

For all the coffee lovers out there here is a curtain for you. I made mine in thread with a #7 steel hook. I used the extended double crochet stitch and it came out a little taller then 15 inches.

You can find the free pattern on my Yahoo page: http://www.associatedcontent.com/slideshow/73234/filet_crochet_hot_coffee_curtain.html?cat=24

107  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Day of the Dead Skull Doily or Afghan Square---> Link to Free Pattern and tute! 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:

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


108  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Praying Hands in Filet includes free pattern link 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:


109  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Butterfly with Pineapple Wings --->includes link to free pattern! on: July 06, 2010 03:10:50 AM

When I saw the shirt with the butterfly applique, I thought I would would share this butterfly pattern with you. I made mine in red thread and a #7 steel hook. It's 7 inches at it's wisest point. The pattern is free and can be found here:


110  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Gryphon Dragon Filet and Afghan ---->Free Pattern Links 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.
