I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time looking at crochet patterns… whether it’s to put together a collection for this site, find a pattern for someone who isn’t having any luck, or for my own crochet down time. Ravelry makes it easy to find the pattern you’re looking for – and everyday I talk to people who don’t know how to use it. So here’s how to use Ravelry to find a crochet or knit pattern – you’ll love it!

There are a few different projects and patterns here on Moogly that call for buttons. And adding the right buttons to nearly any project can up it’s appeal! But sometimes the right buttons come with holes far too small for a yarn needle – and digging out matching sewing thread and the tiny sewing needles might not seem worth the effort. But there’s a quick, easy, and free way to thread small button holes with the yarn you used for the rest of your project!

Here on Moogly I’ve designed a lot of free crochet patterns, with hopefully many more to come! And one of my favorite things to design are bags. Purses, clutches, soap sacks, market bags, pencil cases, totes – I love them all! And one of my favorite ways to begin a rectangular bottom bag is using the method I want to demonstrate for you today – Bag Bottoms that go from Rows to Rounds!
The Griddle Stitch, also known as the Cobble Stitch, is a simple stitch pattern that is perfect for beginners who are ready for some texture! All you need to know how to do is chain, single crochet, and double crochet. And of course count your stitches! Here’s how to work the Griddle Stitch.
Almost every day I have someone ask me how to print the patterns that are here on Moogly. Using cut and paste can work, or trying to print the screen – but that can grab ads, comments, and all kinds of stuff that will waste paper and ink. There’s a much simpler option – and it allows you to download them as PDFs too! It’s the Print Friendly button, and here’s how to use it.
