Wyatt and Crochet Thread

This is Wyatt. He's wanting something as usual.

When he was a puppy he could take an unopened ball of crochet thread, open it and have it all off the cardboard insert in 5 minutes!

Now he just stares until I put down my hook and pay attention to him.

Free Vintage Knit Pattern Brilliant Future A Ladies Sweater

Vintage Knit Pattern called: Brilliant Future.

It is the ladies sweater seen to the left.

I wonder where they come up with the names for these things?

Looks neither Brilliant or Futuristic to me.

I hope you enjoy the free vintage pattern!

Ying Yang & Cup Cake Word Tote Crochet Patterns

I just put up two new patterns at Donna's Crochet Designs!

The first is a Ying-Yang word tote. It is a two-color split tote with the words ying and yang spelled out.

Some of the letters are capitals and some are in lower case. They are designed to look like they have been cut out of a newspaper or magazine.

The second tote is my Cup Cake Tote.

The works cup and cake are spelled out much like they were in the Ying-Yang tote.

As a bonus there is a cup cake patch to decorate the purse as well.

Both patterns are now available at my web site: for 3.99.

I hope you like them!

Free Crochet Pattern 12-inch Fashion Doll's Sport Outfit

This time my free pattern is for the 12-inch fashion doll. I know in the photo the outfit is on a Bratz doll, but the outfit will fit most any 12-inch fashion doll so long as you don't try it one one of the original very busty Barbies.
It is a pants, top and Jacket set. The pants and jacket have a triangle of orange crochet into them for decoration. Crochet in size 10 crochet thread, it is a project that does go fairly quickly.
I hope you enjoy it!
