    Monday's Crochet Smorgasbord

     

    Greetings Friends. I want to introduce you to Monday’s Crochet Smorgasbord where you will find many new released patterns.  There will be no rhyme or reason to it, just a bunch of great free patterns. 

     

    With week 1, I am bringing a fresh release of new patterns from some pretty amazing crochet designers and bloggers. I am sure there will be something for everyone. Each week I will share from purses to totes, afghans to baby blankets, socks to sandals, etc. I hope to find many and I really hope to please you all.  

     

    Let me know how I am doing every once in a while by leaving a comment.

    Hugs & Kisses 2 Piece Outfit

    Hugs & Kisses 2 Piece Outfit

    Hello, all my Country Willow Designs loyal friends.  Today I am excited to offer you this beautiful Hugs & Kisses 2 Piece Set. This pattern is intended for a Newborn to 3 months. You all don’t know, but I am expecting my 2nd grandchild at the beginning of June.  Not sure of the gender, my daughter wants to be surprised. I don’t care what he/she is as long as it is healthy. I do love using the treble X stitch. It makes for beautiful texture and makes the top breathable. I used I Love This Cotton for this because of the comfort and softness.

    Hi, and welcome back to Country Willow Designs, where I have for you a new free crochet pattern, The Azalia Baby Dress. 

    I made the Azalia Baby Dress a little larger than normal, it is 24 months, but I am going to try and do other sizes.  Please comment on the sizes you would like to see.

    This dress is perfect for Spring, it is very lightweight.  It is made with #2 fine Premier Cotton Fair, and I love the look and feel of this and it drapes so nicely.

    Amy Cherisse Winter Collection Hat

    wc winter collection hat

      I am starting a collection for you all to enjoy. It will be called Amy Cherisse Winter Collection (ACWC) for short and the first part is this hat. Since this my first collection I am using my oldest daughters name.

      I made this hat using the dc, FPtr and BPtr stitches making this an intermediate pattern because of the post stitches. This combination seems to create the texture that I love.

    Please make sure to visit my group and look at the poll I am taking.  I want to involve you all as much as I can in this Collection.
