    How about some alphabet and number charts which are simple to use (and adjustable in size perhaps) for putting names and dates into items like baby blankets or other flat items? Also helpful along the same line would be more techniques for personalizing items–from start to finish, maybe also easy to use filet crochet charts with the alphabet and numbers. Thanks!

  11. I would love a pattern for a pansy that LOOKS like a pansy and is not incredibly complicated. Most of the ones I have tried do not look like their photos when I finish them and I’m not a novice…if I finally work one up before I see one here, I’ll share it.

    My brain gets addled trying to follow a pattern with all those abbreviations in small print and line after line jammed together. Do you have tricks for making patterns easier to follow and keeping track of where you are?

  39. Susan says:

    I would love to see a pattern for fingerless gloves. Nothing bulky, like some of the patterns that I have seen, but easy enough that I can make them up quickly. It’s getting cold. 🙂 Oh, and I would love to win the yarn too. 🙂

  40. hmmm. tough one.
    but I would love an easy, and different than others, jellyfish pattern.
    I love jellies, and have tried some patterns but not really happy with the bulky-ness they have.
    Jellies are free-floating and airy. Would love a pattern that would convey that but still be a jelly.

    Perfect yarn for a cowl. It’s always cold sitting in Church and some warmth around your shoulders and neck would be nice. Looking for patterns for potholders made from cotton yarn.
    I like the thick ones maybe made with 2 layers or crocheting with 2 yarns.

    Love the yarn for the giveaway! I love so many of your patterns, but the ones I really have made up are bracelets so maybe some earring patterns would be great. I have made many blankets for family and friends, but also enjoy making crochet jewellery.
