Spiral Socks -free crochet pattern-

These cute crochet socks are adorable!  The spiral in the heel gives these socks a unique twist. This design is quite different than any other sock pattern that I have seen, as you begin at the heel!  Then you work the leg, and finish off with the foot and toe.  This pattern looks very interesting, I can't wait to give it a go. This is a Ravelry download.

All Year Round Poncho -free crochet pattern-


Here is an example of something so beautiful, but yet so easy!  All you need to know is how to make a single crochet (and a bit of basic sewing). Basically, you just use a large hook and make two rectangular panels. Then you sew them together and voila!  There is a video tutorial if you actually need help.  Another bonus, is that this can be worn in so many ways!  The designer lists and shows a quite a few of them. I think this may become me side project! (I have lots!)

Casserole Carrier -free crochet pattern-

Casserole Carrier to Crochet

This is a pretty neat crochet idea for the home. If you've ever made casseroles (or any dish really) to take to a pot luck, party, or event, then you know what a pain it can be to carry; especially if it's hot, or you have a load of other things to carry at the same time. With the crochet casserole carrier you no longer have to worry about a spill!  This is a cute and clever idea, and completely reusable.
