Yarn along and free knitting patterns for hearts « Twyste Here we are again, the weekly yarn along with Small Things. I’ve finally gotten finished with my Honey cowl (pattern available here).

how to crochet a daisy chain necklace My mum described this thing she had seen on someone else, part necklace, part scarf, like a bunch of flowers for your neck and I was really taken with this idea of floral jewels.

Free Crochet Patterns, Crochet Cowl Patterns, and Free Knit Patterns Last weekend (March 14 – 16th), I attended the 10th annual Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival in Cranberry, PA. I’d heard of the festival before, but was never in town to attend. The festival attracted over 70 different booths and some big name teachers.
