It’s time for June’s Designer Showcase! I like to wrap up each month by having one of my favorite designers share a bit about themselves, and then I follow it up by sharing my 5 favorite free patterns that they’ve designed! This month I’m excited to share some things from the talented Rebecca Langford – the blogger and designer behind Little Monkeys Crochet!
Today’s post is a guest roundup by Elaine Bennett, editor of the UK magazine LGC Knitting & Crochet. They have recently launched a new crochet website featuring hundreds of free patterns from their back issues, all created by some of the UK’s top designers. You can browse the website, which is called Top Crochet Patterns, here: http://www.topcrochetpatterns.
It’s time for May’s Designer Showcase! I like to wrap up each month by having one of my favorite designers share a bit about themselves, and then I follow it up by sharing my 5 favorite free patterns that they’ve designed! This month I’m excited to share some things from the very clever Rhondda Mol – the blogger and designer behind Oombawka Design!
The 2015 Moogly Afghan Crochet Along is coming along swimmingly, and in each new square post I’ve included a link to alternative squares, in case you didn’t care for the latest pick. But that list has become a bit outdated… so it’s time for a new one! Here are 10 free crochet afghan square patterns – use them as alternatives in the CAL, or just plain use them to make something pretty!
Earlier I shared 10 Free Crochet Patterns for Dog Lovers – and now it’s time for things the dogs themselves can enjoy! Remember – dogs are all different, and not every toy will be appropriate for every dog. Stuffed toys in particular require supervision – or just try leaving them unstuffed, like the flat ones you see in stores. I know my pooch enjoys those too! And if you don’t have a dog on your gift list, some of these would also be popular with kids!
These patterns aren’t for the dogs to enjoy – they are for the people that love them! And no allergies! Though I have a feeling the dogs will get in on a few of these, judging by how my own pooch loves crocheted blankets…
