  2. Love your page on these stitches. I agree with you on learning how to do one stitch you might have to pay! Learning the stitches needs to be free and we can make our own pattern. After all, we do it with double crochet, single crochet etc....

  4. I had done only three of those stitches: Crocodile, basket weave and lace. I've seen broomstick lace but I've never attempted to make it. The rest I've never seen before, thank you for sharing such lovely stitches!!

  5. Hi Mandee,
    These are great! I am just learning how to crochet (like literally frorm this weekend) and am still finding it hard to get the right tension in my yarn when I am trying to hold it. It's fun though.l With practice, does it take a really long time to get from a basic understanding of a chain stitch to these techniques?

    1. Sorry to reply to you so late! Once you have the basics down, it becomes really easy to pick up on new techniques in my opinion. I never thought I would be able to read crochet patterns, but after a while of watching youtube videos I realized that I understood the written patterns without ever trying to train myself to do so. Hope you are sticking with it :)

  7. Thank you for your time and talent dedicated to maintain this site, Dear. It helps those of us who are rusty in our pattern skills as well as the first-timers. I'm the rusty crocheter (it's the brain fog that comes with "the mature years.")

    1. Thanks so much Cynthia! I know what you mean, it can be really easy to forget techniques you use to know if you fall out of practice. Thanks for stopping by :)

  8. Beautiful stitches!! I taught myself 2 years ago after my grandmother past away and I decided to finish up all of her Christmas presents she had started earlier that year for the family . It was the best thing I have ever done. :). Last year I decided to go on a "learn a new stitch a day for a month" challenge for myself. I used all the stitches to make wash cloth sized squares so they could be swatches I could use. LOVED IT!! I found a free website called "A stitch a day" .

    The primrose is by far my favorite so far.i used it to create my own pattern (that one lends itself for easy pattern making) for a scarf, then entered it into the county fair which I won. I was so excited to win my first time ever and have my the confindence to keep at it.

    Thank you for these lovely stitches!!

  11. Love your work. Joining you so I can try your patterns since all I can do these days is crochet. March 2012 I ended up in the hospital & from there I ended up with a Bad Bed Sore. I'm now able to sit for a little while so I can crochet (it's hard to do lieing on 1 side or the other) so while I'm sitting I put my time to good use. Crocheting. Have plenty of grandchildren, nieces, great nieces etc. Thank you for such beautiful patterns. Johnanne

I have recently taught myself how to crochet and have made baby blankets and beanie hats for my nephews and nieces and also cowls and infinity scarves for my girlfriends as gifts - I too love to crochet! Will be stopping by your website often - thank you so much.
