I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Crocheted projects for the home need not be heavy and drapey. Here are some that make use of lacework and colored flower motifs to really add some pizzazz to your interior decorating. The ice thing about lacy crocheted items is that they add to a surface in your home, instead of covering it up. Try these on for size, and you definitely won’t be disappointed.

African Violet Afghan Free Crochet Pattern

The first pattern is an afghan to be used as a bedspread or airy blanket. The beautiful flower motifs, with their gentle textures offset the purple lacework background. This project is an amazing example of how to use voids to define the shape of the crocheted portions of the afghan. This is an easy, yet intricate project that will be one of your most treasured crocheted items.

Apple Blossom Placemat Free Crochet Pattern

The Apple Blossom Placemat is a decoration for either a sideboard or a table. The texture shows off your table surface or tablecloth, while at the same time being thick enough to hold a hot dinner plate off of your table’s finish. The colored flowers really make it pop.
