What's on Your Hook?


Silky Crochet Scarf
My Current Work in Progress.  Read more to find out what it is...

So what are you working on this evening?

Right now I am working on the Silky Crochet Scarf, I found a free pattern on Ravelry for this beautiful lace scarf and I thought I would give crocheting this pattern a try.  The pattern is given in a diagram and there is very little text to go with the pattern.  It's pretty easy to figure out but working with a lace weight yarn and a small crochet hook can prove tricky from time to time.  After a while I have to give my fingers and my eyes a break.  Because of this I would mark the crochet pattern as intermediate.


I am using some yarn I bought from eBay a few months ago.  I got a gift card from Influenster.com after I made a few eBay sellers guides and I used that gift card to purchase that yarn.  It's a beautiful lightly variegated grey lace weight merino wool that has been hand dyed.  This is how it looked before I turned part of it into a ball.

Pink Pineapple Doily Free Crochet Pattern

Hello and Greetings Everyone I know I haven't been around a lot to post lately but with the holidays, well everyone knows how that goes... But I am back and I have a new crochet pattern to share, it's called the Pink Pineapple Doily The original pattern appeared in 1951 in the publication Star Book No. 87, Doilies, Doilies, Doilies. For a printer friendly and editable version of this post, scroll down to the bottom and click the button that says "Print Friendly." I am absolutely in love with this doily. It looks like a very complex pattern but if your are just starting to make doilies and other crochet goods this is a great pattern to learn how to read other, more complex patterns.

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
