Crochet: Fingerless Gloves
This basic fingerless mitt pattern is easy, quick, and begging for your virtuosity. Change colors, add novelty yarn as trim, or indulge in a scalloped edge. Make one for every outfit, donate them to the church bazaar, and share them as stocking stuffers. This pattern is written for an average length but after making one or two pairs, you may wa...
Crochet: Sleeveless Top
Layered over a contrasting tank, this easy to make cami is a nice late-summer addition to your hot weather wardrobe. A simple net stitch with subtle detailing at the lower hem make it a quick project you can make in a few sittings. Slight shaping at the waist creates a more fitted garment that you can easily customize for your figure. Use it as...
Crochet: Accessory
We love our pets and treat them like royalty. Like royalty, however, there are certain things they never have to do, like clean up after themselves. This placemat will assist slaves like us who are the ones left to clean up after their meal. It isn’t a new idea, but a nice personal touch and, while your pet may never really appreciate your dedi...
Crochet: Scarf
Spring, we need you now! Here in Minnesota, we still have plenty of snow, but there are ways to force the issue. One of those ways is to adorn the spring accessory as often as possible, regardless of the snow banks you must navigate to get where you are going.
Crochet: Potholder
Another easy level (dare I say “beginner”?) potholder created with two identical rectangles constructed separately and then assembled. The inspiration for this handy item was an incredible February thaw here in Minnesota wherein the temps reached 53 degrees – unheard of in this neck of the woods! My lawn was peeking out of the snow (which had b...

Crochet: Scarf
If you are feint of heart, turn away, turn away, I say. When I say “sooper,” I mean it! This minty themed zig-zag scarf is long enough to wrap around you three or four times – approximately 98”. It seems extreme because it is. It is fresh and fun to crochet and, since it is long enough to keep you AND your cutie warm simultaneously, is more ene...
Crochet: Potholder
The basic construction of this potholder is incredibly simple – two rectangles crocheted together – and creates a very sturdy, very thick potholder that can also be used as a trivit. The stitch pattern you use, a front post double crochet, creates nice texture integrating form and function. The piece is edged in a reverse single crochet and, li...
Crochet: Cloche Hat
Circumference on this hat is approx. 25” around. there is a fair amount of give, however, due to the flexibility of the yarn and the stitching.
Crochet: Sleeveless Top
Also available at FaveCrafts, as “Net Stitch Camisole”.
