1893 Circle Motif Reworked Free Pattern Directions I reworked the crochet directions for this circle pattern, which was originally printed in the year 1893 in a publication called Fancy Work Manual. This is the center portion of a pattern that was named Crocheted Wheel For Tidy in the 1893 book. I thought this part of that pattern would make a nice coaster or small doily, if made with cotton worsted weight yarn or a motif to sew on clothing when crocheted with thread. African Flower Pattern I’ve gotten so many compliments, questions, and pattern requests lately about the motif up there in the center of my blog header that I thought I better get a post up about it. Some of you commented that it looks a little like the African Flower motif. Well you are correct! It is the African Flower motif … kinda.

Kata - free crochet square pattern Kata This pattern is a flower – created by crocheting clusters. Although the instructions are long, once you master a cluster it will all seem easy. American terminology used. Understatement Necklace Are you one of those fashionistas that loves the statement necklaces? You know the ones. They come in sizes big and bigger. They look like a whole garden of flowers was turned into metal or Lucite and attached to a chain by some evil witch whose jealousy over their beauty caused her to cast the spell. The flowers' destiny is to now hang about someone's neck for a year or so until they go out of style. Then it's to the back of the closet along with the 6-inch platform shoes. Sunburst Granny Square Blanket I finally finished my daughter's granny square blanket! It was my last project that I really wanted to finish before we have the baby. (And 3 year old is still in her crib...she absolutely loves it! Oh well, we will tackle the issue before she turns 4 in the spring:) For now I couldn't care less...Mama needs her sleep!) I ended up only using 72 squares. The blanket was heavy enough already so I didn't want to add any more.

Talking crochet ... Octagon Granny Motif Skill Level Easy Materials {Lily Hexagon} May is considered to be the month of flowers and spring! Although this year it reminds more of summer since the temperatures are quite high here in Greece. I recently found Karen's blog by chance, and started reading away! She has some fantastic patterns which I recommend you check out! One of them was the pattern of the Lily Hexagon which I simply adored and started crocheting away! The pattern uses the bobble stitch which I had never done before but I have to say I'm addicted to it now!
