My Crochet Addictions



I'm just too addicted to crochet, I may need an intervention!

I have been spending money on patterns..hmm.. Okay, this isn't really a bad thing, it's just that there are so many free patterns on the Internet that I should be practicing on first.

I'm not the greatest at following a crochet pattern, not even close...

Here is one of the tops that I'm working on right now. I'm not even half way done because this kind of top takes forever for me. lol I didn't have the right size hook and couldn't find it at the store, so my hook is two sizes too large and I'm not even sure if my yarn is the correct gauge.. But it seems to be coming out the right size (I hope!) I can't wait to finish it...

This pattern and many like it can be found Here.




I've made some really cute tank tops for both of my girls, but I just made them up as I went.












Lilly had been jumping on my bed for a while, so her hair is a bit crazy.. This is a long halter top that I made to be worn with shorts. Shaylynne's top can also be worn with shorts, but I plan on crocheting some matching soakers for her.


The Pattern for the Little Birds and the flower appliques can be found Here.
The Pattern for the Flower on Shay's dress can be found Here.

Check out Crochet Pattern Central for lots of great free patterns!

  1. Oh my gosh!!! Those are just too cute!! I'm addicted to craft magazines! I need to stop buying them. We don't need an intervention - it's perfectly normal! (just keep telling yourself that - it's working for me! LOL)
