Leg Warmers

I am proud to call myself a child of seventies and the eighties and I love the way that trends of these by-gone eras have been resurrected, made new again and embraced by young and old nostalgia-prone groovy chicks like myself.
The legwarmer pattern I designed for you follows a basic crochet stitch and puff pattern I came up with a few years ago. The pattern which is easy to follow, makes an interesting texture, and stitches up pretty quickly.
Pattern stitches include: Single Crochet (Sc), Half Double Crochet (Hdc)  and a simple Puff Stitch for variety.  All stitches are suited for the beginner and experienced crocheter, alike.
The yarn I used for the ones pictured was a variegated type by Carons “Simply Soft” which gave it that sort of stripey affect. I think  it would look very rich in a dark solid colored hue, like wine or dark moss, as well.  It’s totally up to you which look to go for, ecclectic or elegant, which makes this pattern very versatile.
Pattern available for $2.00 at Love Crochet Pattern.

Crochet Bead Necklace 

Glorious Spring! It’s beautiful, isn’t it? Flowers, breezes and sun. My favorite season.

T-Shirt Yarn Beach Bag

Spring is here and that can only mean that Summer is not far off and with the sun shining and no school, you’ll be off with family and friends to the beach, park, or amusement/water parks. And what you will need is a bag to tote your gear. Preferably, one that doesn’t have the name of your local supermarket’s logo emblazoned on the side. Rather, one that is cute and that you made yourself! Well, here is one for you.

Tshirt Bag 1

Isn’t it cute?  A few years ago I decided to crochet myself a beach bag to carry my yarn and stuff to and from the beach. One that was sturdy and roomy but not oversized and bland. This is what I came up with. Hope you like it.
