While I’m at the Knit and Crochet Show in San Diego this week, I’m happy to share a fun guest roundup post by Elaine Bennett of TopCrochetPatterns.com! Thanks Elaine!
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.

Can a blogger have better friends? As I continue to recover from my respiratory troubles, the wonderful Stacey Williams, designer at Busting Stitches, has generously shared a free crochet pattern here on Moogly! The Amazing One Piece Bow shared here is the Small Size – this pattern also comes in Medium, Large, and XL! And they’re all just perfect! So let’s get to it!
And a huge thank you this morning to Mary Kathryn of Crochet Chiq! She surprised me with this super fun guest post for Moogly and I’m so excited to share it with you – such a great (and timely!) topic! Be sure to visit Crochet Chiq after you read this – Mary Kathryn writes fab free patterns, some of which have even been published by Red Heart Yarns!
Instead of getting upset of little ones tangling your current project give them their own ball and help them with these awesome projects.
How wonderful is the crochet community?! I let my fellow bloggers know I’m sick and put out a call for help – and I get wonderful gifts in my email inbox! A huge thank you to “e” Lee of The Crochet Lounge for putting this together for Moogly today!
