Crochet Pattern: Medina Dishtowel

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 4th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 4 Comments
If you are somebody that works a lot in the kitchen, by now you know that good absorbent dishtowels are hard to come by. You can search and search and still be unsatisfied. So why not make your own? Choosing a good cotton yarn is the first step. There are many cotton yarns on the market, some which are mixed with other fibers. Cotton is essential for kitchen towels and cloths because of their durability and resistance to fraying. Make as many of these as you might need and never buy another factory-made towel again!

Crochet Pattern: Sailboat Appliqué

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 14th, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 4 Comments
Unlike most girls, I have always loved a nautical theme. I decided early on in my life that I would learn as much about the world of water and man’s history on it as I could. And though some children may grow out of this interest, almost all love the adventure the sea promises. Whether you are designing a nursery or a simple blanket or piece of clothing, choose between this and some of Crochet Spot’s other nautical and marine inspired appliqués as well: the Anchor Appliqué, the Fish Appliqué. and the Something’s Fishy Appliqué!

Crochet Pattern: A Rose for a Ring

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on July 31st, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 2 Comments
One of the most enjoyable things to crochet is jewelry! Rings, earrings, necklace pendants, and brooches, all with the artistic flare yarn or thread naturally gives. Making your own jewelry says a lot and lends something noticeable to your appearance. To make this rose you begin with a strip of crocheted fabric and wind it around itself to resemble a rose. Then you simply sew it together from the bottom. Visit this page to see an example: How to Roll Up a Crocheted Rose. You can use this tiny rose on anything.
