yarny goodness: Printable Pattern Update

You may recognize the “menu” below as being similar to the one on the sewhooked yarn page. You’d be right! After a suggestion from the lovely Pren, I’ve spent the last week or so creating printer-friendly versions of all my crochet patterns, and the knit pattern by my lovely daughter, Elena.

All past pattern posts now have a link directly to the printable version (in pdf format), and let me tell you, that was no walk in the park, but it’s done now…whew!  Each printable pattern and the original post is linked below, for your convenience.

Yarn: Free Pattern Post of Doom

Photobucket

Many of my friends, both online and in real life, crochet and knit.  Most of them have designed at least one of their own patterns.  Since I don’t host guest patterns for yarn at sewhooked, I thought a lovely big post of all the patterns my friends can throw at me would be fun!

This will be an ongoing and changing list, added to and edited as my crafty friends share their patterns with the world.

You’ll find loads of great patterns below, including lots of Harry Potter-themed crochet and knit projects.

These are roughly in alphabetical order.  I’m sticking with first names since I have a combination of real names and user names.  It’s just easier that way!

And, if you’re one of my friends and your name isn’t on this list…send me your links already! 😉

One summer, about four years ago, my daughter asked to learn how to knit.

The only hitch in her plan is that I’m not a knitter, so I couldn’t teach her.   That, of course, was her main motivation for wanting to learn.   What better than her knowing a craft I’ve never mastered?

We found a class at a local yarn shop and she learned to knit in just a few hours.  She knitted all summer (she was 10 at the time) and has been knitting ever since.

I knew I was really starting to rub off on her when when one of the first things she did was to write her own pattern.   I just beamed with pride!  My daughter, designing!

I still haven’t learned to knit.  Knitting is her craft and gives her the pride of being able to do something that I can’t.   I find that I am completely okay with that.

I proudly present my daughter, Elena’s, first knitting pattern, unedited and in her own writing.
