I am looking for a crocheted Oklahoma University afghan pattern?
By Evelyh West from Sulphur, OK
Well, double crochet a purple background and outline a Powercat logo and the letters "Kansas State University Wildcats" with white yarn in the center of the afghan! I'm joking! I'm joking! Just a Big XII friendly rivalry remark that I couldn't stop myself from typing! :-) I'm so bad that way!
All kidding aside, check with craft stores, fabric stores or yarn shops in Norman, Oklahoma (maybe even Oklahoma City). A lot of the stores and shops in the hometowns of Big XII schools cater to the school's fans and try to stock University logo related merchandise. If an employee simply says "No, we don't have that," ask to talk to a manager who could possibly be alerted to a customer request and look for such a pattern through their individual suppliers.
Congrats to the Sooners for the Fiesta Bowl Game win and good luck finding the afghan pattern you are seeking.
Hi. I was also trying to find a pattern for an OU afghan to no avail so I went to the OU site and copied a picture of the OU logo and saved it to my pictures. Then I went to a free site for making a graph. Using this I figured using an H crochet hook each 4 stitches equaled 1 inch, using triple crochet each stitch was 1 inch.
I would like to have a crochet table cloth pattern that I can crochet myself. Thank you.
You will no doubt get a lot of information from your request. I have an idea you can either use or if you really want to do that much work, go for it! If you want the same effect however, please keep this in mind. You can either go to the dollar tree and get the same style of doilies for 2/1.00 and tie them together with pretty ribbon or crochet them together just a few stitches.
Go to allfreecrochet.com and look on your left hand side scroll down for patterns. You will have to sign up for the site to down load. Hope this helps.
I would like a very easy crochet pattern for a small dog sweater. Remember, I need a very easy one.
By carol from Goose Creek, SC
I have these websites saved in my Bookmarks as Crafts and have a special folder named Crocheting & Knitting. The first website has lots of pet items to crochet, and the send website is an easy crochet pattern. If this pattern isn't to your liking pick another one from their long list.
Here's a lot of links to crochet dog sweaters with pictures and help you decide which one to make. Enjoy!

Crochet hook G
Worsted weight yarn: Burgundy 1000 grams, Navy 500 grams, White 300 grams (Red Heart Comfort Yarn, sold in 454 gram balls, I used two plus a bit of the burgundy/wine/dark red, one 454 gram ball of dark blue/navy, and two 200 gram balls of white, with left over yarn. I also found that the use of "bobbins" or some other method of working with multiple colour changes useful)
Stitches used: Chain, Single Crochet, and Double Crochet
Chain 205 with burgundy
Row 1: single crochet burgundy in second ch from hook and in each chain after - 204sts. Chain 3, turn (Do not count chain 3 turn as a stitch in the row: each row must consist of 204 double crochet stitches, plus the chain 3) Remainder of afghan worked in double crochet, until very last row.
Row 2: starting in last sc of row, With Navy, dc in each sc for 24 sts, change to white, dc in next 3 sc, change to burgundy, dc in next 150, white 3, navy 24, chain 3,Turn (burgundy will be abbreviated "R" from here, Navy as "N", and White as "W". Therefore: R3, N4 would be use burgundy for 3 dc, and Navy for 4 dc, for example.)

Row 4: start in last dc of row 3, N28, W3, R142, W3, N28, ch 3, turn (start each row in last dc of row before, and end each with a ch 3-turn)
Does anyone know where I can find a free crochet pattern for a simple lady's cardigan? I've tried looking online, but they all seem complicated or with fussy frills or lace. I plan to make it for an 80 year old lady with arthritis who just needs to keep warm.
Thank you so much in advance.

Does anyone have a knitting or crocheting pattern for a man's peaked hat? I don't mean a baseball cap I mean what I might call a bargeman's hat with a peak. I have tried shops and the internet but patterns there tend to be for ladies and I need a man's pattern because my man has a large head!
Mary from UK
Try using the women's pattern with larger needles. Calculate for size.
Wth free registration, all of the yarn companies have websites with free patterns. I can't remember if it was lionbrand.com or bernat.com but one of them had the pattern for a peaked 'watchcap', bargemans hat, toboggan, whatever it might be called :-) if you can't find it, let me know and I'll look again until I find it, but search all the yarn mfg's pages and most have free patterns for registration. Just opt out of any mass mailings they offer.
I was looking for free crochet patterns for pineapple doilies. Does anyone have them?

Linda from Matamoras, PA
I am looking for the Crochet World Magazine, December 2011. There is a Santa pillow pattern by Debra Arch. I can't afford to buy the magazine, but would like the pattern so much. Please help me. Thank you.
I am looking for a winter time crochet afghan one piece project to do in front of the TV.
Karen from Tri Cities Washington
Hi! I found an awesome throw on the Michaels.com website. It is made from Bernat Soft Boucle yarns and works up very quickly. Check out the website as there are many crochet projects to choose from.
I am crafting for people in hospice/nursing homes. I find a need for crocheted and knitted capelets (that have no sleeves and can be fastened with one button). They are for terminal patients whose shoulders are always cold and who cannot be put into a sweater. I have a couple of patterns (from Internet), but would like more.
CayC from Green Cove Springs, FL
Hi, I don't have any patterns. But---May God Bless You!! You're such a sweetie, to be doing this. After seeing my brother in law die with cancer, a few months ago. He was always cold, these items you're making are soooo needed. This world should could use more compassionate people like you!
I'm also crocheting for nursing home clients. I crochet mostly afgans. I would also like to crochet caplets. I need patterns. If you have any please e-mail them to me at orcacrafts @ mchsi.com please in the subject line caplet pattern as i do deleate any mails sent to me that I do not recognize to prevent spam and virus
Thank You and the eldrly thank you
I'm a weird person... Has anyone seen the "Glade" commercial with the Crochet Lady. She's making little covers for her smelly cones... the old air fresheners. She's making a Christmas tree and at the end she tells them next time she'll be showing them how to make this cute little bunny cover! Its hilarious for me, a crocheter! So my question is as a joke, does anyone know were I could get a pattern for a cute little bunny or even the tree? I have a knitting and crocheting group in my home and thought it would give us all a good laugh!
Thanks for your time.
Brandy from East, SD
I guess I am weird too. I love that commercial. Especially her bunny face at the end. I always giggle when I see it.
dazyclover Tenino, WA
I wasn't too fond of the commercial, since I crochet and kinda took offense at the way they portrayed the lady. At any rate, lol.... I know of a lot patterns, and find them by using search engine and putting in free crochet pattern ________?_______ of whatever I am looking for. Also, joining an online group (yahoo or msn) that is just for crocheting (and or knitting) gives you access to others. I am a Happy Hooker in an MSN group that consist of the most wonderful group of "hookers" in the crocheting craft.
I was just reading through all the interesting comments about the crochet commericial. I actually work for Dial and if someone has an interesting crochet idea for the Renuzit Adjustables, I can ask to have the directions posted on renuzit.com to share with other crafters. I think they have quite a few craft ideas on their website but no crochet stuff. Happy to do it!
Does anyone know where I can get a free crochet pattern for a chess board and men?
Kathy from Orlando, FL
I am looking for crocheted bed doll patterns. I hope someone can help.
Laurie from Portland, OR
You can find just about anything on Google these days.
The second is my favorite, but don't open it till you have days to browse!!!
Post for crochetpatterncentral.com is good and you may also want to try these: karensvariety.com
I make the bed dolls. They're a lot of work but really worth it.
Does anyone have a pattern for a sleeveless cotton crochet top for summer that is not a halter neck nor too revealing? Not a jacket please, some sort of sleeveless t-shirty top would be fine. The easier to make, the better!
Cettina from Malta, Europe
Try Joann.com. They have some very nice free patterns to knit, crochet, etc.
THis is free patterns.com they have tons of free patterns for crochet including shells like you want. The link is for adult wearable crochet and knit patterns. You have to join to get the free pattern but its free. Good luck.
You might also try the websites of companies which manufacture and sell wool and crochet supplies. Many of them provide free patterns. Or go to www.google.com and enter "free crochet patterns" for quite a number of sites to visit.
I am searching for Aunt Lydia rug yarn patterns especially the bleach bottle craft which included a witch, bunny, leprechaun, and Mrs. Santa to name a few. I am also interested in small gifts, etc. Thank you for your search.

I am looking for free crochet dress patterns for small lap dogs, like Shih tzus.
By sandra moore from Eaton, OH
Does anyone have a pattern to make my own checkbook cover? Hopefully, in either crochet, knit, or plastic canvas. If not, then whatever. But I need a new one and I'm not willing to pay the exorbitant prices the bank and the other places ask.
By Cricket from Parkton, NC
I am about to be a first time grandma or I guess I should say step-grandma which makes this all the more important. I want to crochet a baby afghan for my coming grandson. They are doing a jungle theme room. I would like to make something not lacey but kind of like a net I guess to fit the theme.
I am a simple crocheter but need something that turns out looking spectacular. That is just what my daughter-in-law expects. Please give me ideas for what kind of yarn and hook to use. Please help me out here. No one on this site has ever let me down! Thanks!
