Does any one have any new crochet patterns that are quick/take along? I am looking for projects like the scrubbies, etc.

One is to make circles. They can be used for so many things like putting two of them together for a pin cusion (will send you my submissions for some help), you can sew them together later for a lapgan or place mats, hot pads (not pot holders, but the kind you lay under a hot pan), and so many other projects like vests, chair and arm covers and more.
and here is my submissions you might want to try.
That should keep you busy for a while!!
Hope these help...PBP
Look on www.lionbrand.com or www. ravelry.com
Both have tons of free patterns!
Thank you very much and God bless you!
I am looking for easy beginner's crochet items. Any suggestions?
I love this simple stitch. If you can master a chain and a single crochet, you can make these for gifts or to keep.
Hot Pad: Chain 25, this gives you a 6" square base.
Repeat this pattern till you have 23 rows. For some reason, a row is a bit taller than a chain, so your work will need an odd number of rows to make a true 6" by 6" square. Bind off and work in tail.
Making two of these will give you the perfect thickness for a hot pad. Hot glue a cross on the back side of each almost to the edges but not all the way. Then set the other on top and press down. Sew around the edges in a running stitch (my fav') or a whip stitch. Now...
Pot holders are different than hot pads. One is to be around the burner and should never be acrylic. When it ignites, it's plastic so it goes molten and can burn you bad. Hot Pads are just to protect your counter and tables so they can't get close to the flame or burner.
These work up really thick which is also another reason for a hot pad as they don't fold or bend well.
Here is a photo of some I have done.
I hope that helps!!
Love this and thank you very much! God's blessings to you!
I am learning how to crochet a doily and I was looking on the internet for a very simple round doily. They all seem complicated to me. Anyone out there have a easy one for a beginner? Thanks loads.

There is a website: knittinghelp.com that also offers crochet help and patterns. you can ask this same question on their forum if you don't find a simple pattern. also go to your local library for books on crochet for beginners. or call a local yarn/craft store to ask is they have classes for beginners.
ThriftyFun is one of the longest running frugal living communities on the Internet. These are archives of older discussions.
I am looking for crochet patterns.
Does anyone have crochet patterns to share for a beginner.
