Here is a great site to be able to get free patterns or just browse to get ideas with the Holidays coming up and gift giving.
They always send out great ideas in their newsletters and also have a lot of great give aways as well.

Here is one of their latest sponsored reference books that they are showing that you can get to help with your skills which ranges from the beginner to the expert.  This is a must have for all stitchers.  Makes a great gift if you are wondering what to get someone who crochets also.

Have a blessed day …

Happy Stitching..

I can honestly say that now my hubby can’t wait to get to the yarn isle to pick out a new color for my latest DIY Projects since they are for him.

I have been on a quest for a great shawl to make and finally was frustrated and began making one with left over yarns doing a tunisian stitch as I wanted it to have close together stitches since I am always cold.

Don’t you know that now that I have really gotten it going I stumble across a great post at which actually originated by one of our Word Press Family  Her entire blog can be found at So go and give her a shout out and tell her I sent you.


Way to Go especially with Dedicating the page to Breast Cancer Awareness.

The site is at  She has all sorts of free patterns.  Huge Shout Out for that..  I make it available to Military and Spouses free lessons to crochet, knit, sew and cook.  This Woman makes this possible.  She is yet another in our society who believes in “Pay It Forward”.

Here is her about me blurb:

 Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
   My name is Kinga and I am a crochet addicted, living in Germany with my beloved husband and our wonderful  kids – a  6 years old little boy and a 1 year old baby girl.
  My great crochet adventure began 19th. February 2012 as I started my crochet Facebook Page Myhobbyiscrochet with the purpose to share my own work, links to free crochet patterns and crochet videos. Through the page I had the chance to meet many wonderful people who share the same passion as I do! It was and it is a permanent stimulus to create new projects, to develop my own crochet skills and lately to write my own crochet patterns.
   On this blog (created in April 2013) you will find my free crochet patterns and tutorials, links to other free patterns from the web, tips and inspiration.
    I hope you’ll enjoy your visit and join my crochet journey!Best regards!
KingaPS: I am not a native English speaker, i apologize for any mistake you’ll find.
It is a great find for a lot of unique gifts.

I just finished a slouch hat for a friend and it was rather a difficult pattern to follow.  This one is so much easier and step by step with pictures besides.  It also has a matching cowl that you can make besides so that is really great too.

Just had to give a shout out this morning for a job well done… she is also on Facebook.  Where you can follow all of the newest patterns that she has coming out.

Great Job!

This is the first place I send new students to explore when they are just starting to learn to crochet or knit.  Not only are the patterns free, they also are in categories of difficulty.  It is not just a site to purchase yarns.

Many a night I have burned the midnight oil to print page after page of patterns to send to my students to try.

I now own a kindle fire to save a few trees.  My patterns are stored on the cloud so that I can access them on my computer or on the kindle.

This makes it so much easier and fewer papers in my bed where I end up doing a lot of my crochet projects.

I can still send my students a copy of a pattern by doing it electronically now.  They can print their own or save it in their computers or device of choice.

Bernat has a few more patterns although they are a bit more difficult in level there are a few that still have beginner on the label.

The website is not quite as simple to navigate so I do not send my newest students there till they are used to what they are looking for.

Lion Brand site is easier to navigate but still not as easy as Red Heart and you can lose where you are on it when looking for a pattern.  Again, I do not send newbies there till they know what they are specifically looking at…

Another site that is not attached to a Name Brand but you have to join, which means that they get your information… some people do not like to do this…

is at

With all of these free patterns out there you would think that a woman would never purchase a pattern…

WE Still do.  There are certain patterns that we want.  They are unique in nature.  You will never find them on a free site.  Therefore it is still necessary to purchase a pattern every so often.

There is a place for everything.

Where is your favorite place to get patterns…

Would love to hear from you.
