By Candace – August 2nd, 2014 4 Comments

Crochet Pattern: A Rose for a Ring

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.

Crochet is an ideal craft to take with you while traveling by air. Nowadays it is pretty easy to pack and get the basic tools through security. While traveling in the airport and on the plane, crochet provides a welcome sense of relaxation while productively passing the time.
