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.

For all you fans of the cult BBC show “Call the Midwife”, here is a real beauty, a “reverse engineered” crochet baby blanket from the Christmas special of the show. This is an engaging project which will result in a midwife blanket that will be perfect for Sproggy: warm, but comfortable and won’t overheat the little bod. Moreover, this would make a perfect gift for the mother-to-be for use with her future little one. For more free designs every day follow us on Facebook. Link to that pattern is below

  1. Hi, I have been trying to get free patterns from this site, but it just doesn’t work out for me. I hate working with a computer in the first place, but I am trying. I don’t know how to get the free patterns. I can’t afford to pay for any, but they say they are free. I already have an account but it still doesn’t work for me. I would appreciate any and all help.
