I've been crocheting for over 40 years and blogging since 2004 - two of my favorite things in the world to do besides walking the beaches of windward Oahu, Hawaii.

    • Hi Lee Ann! I’m so glad you like the Told to Me Sweater pattern. Let me know if you make one. I’d love to include a link to a photo if you decide to take one. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!

  • The lapghan is so cute, I can see also making up little X’s and O’s too to make it a blanket to bring along on a picnic for a bit of tic tac toe fun!

  • Hi love your site your patterns are all so lovely. I was wondering if you might know of the name of this stitch shown on these two sites. I am deperately trying to find a patten for this but need to know the name of the stitch in order to do it. Any help you can give me would be deeply appreciated.



  • Hi Brenda, I’m so glad you’re enjoying my blog. I’m trying to post more regularly but life seems to continually interfere :-).

    That IS a lovely stitch! I don’t know the name of it either and I don’t see it in any of my stitch dictionaries, but it looks like a combination of filet crochet and the spike stitch, except that the spike is formed as a bobble or puff stitch.

    The filet crochet is made by double crocheting and then a chain one, skip the next stitch, then more double crocheting. The ch 1 and skipped stitch form the “holes.” The spike stitch is a single crochet stitch but you insert the hook in a row below the one you’re working on and then pull the yarn up.

    If you carefully analyze the photos at the Russian site, you can figure out the pattern for the filet portion of the stitch – it looks like a 3 row repeat. Then for the puffy spike stitch, watch the Brazillian video. She seems to be crocheting on the same filet background as at the Russian site. So it looks like you crochet three filet rows and then add the spike stitch, then crochet 3 more filet rows, and so on.

    There is some incredible crochet coming out of these two countries. I just wish I could understand the languages. Use Google Translate on the Russian site and you’ll get a so-so translation of the instructions into English. The translations aren’t very good, but you can usually figure out what they’re saying, especially with the great photos and the video to help you. The translation of the Brazilian video title is Wonderful Point Crochet, so that sounds kinda like a spike stitch, but I think it’s a bad translation.

    Okay, I just went through my “I Heart Crochet” Pinterest board and found this stitch call the “feather stitch” which looks a bit like the stitch on the filet background – http://pinterest.com/pin/104638391312117413/.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. Let me know if you have other questions and also if you find the name of the stitch in your research. I’d definitely like to know.

  • Hi Patrice~ Thank you so much for your free patterns! I’m anxious to try the baby sweater for my daughter’s photography business. It will make a good “prop” for the coming cool weather :). I sure do enjoy your blog! It’s almost as if we are chatting over a cup of coffee or tea. Thanks for your great work!

    • Cathy, you are quite welcome! I’m so glad you are enjoying my blog. I try to write in a conversational tone, so your comment lets me know I’m succeeding :-). If you haven’t already, please subscribe so you get posts as soon as they’re published. I don’t post as regularly as I’d like, but I’m hoping to pick up the pace in the months to come. And if you do make the sweater, come back and let me know. I’d love to see a photo of it.

  • Thank you for posting this and the nice finished product pictures. I’ve visited Knit for Kids and seen the crochet pattern, but I like yours much better. I do a lot of crocheting for charity, and I think your pattern will encourage me to try the crocheted sweater project for KFK WorldVision. Please keep up the great work!!

    • Hey Hook Dude! I’m so glad you like my KFK crochet sweater. I tried their version and found it to be too bulky, so I worked up a crochet version of the knitted sweater. I’m glad you like it. Let me know if you have any questions about the pattern, and good luck with your charity projects.

  • Hi! I found your site through ” Crochet N’Crafts” when I clicked on your kitty afghan! Thank you for all of the wonderful patterns, tips and tricks! I tried to do a C2C graph-ghan but I don’t care for making the whole thing in those little blocks! (Maybe someday!) I am definitely going to make the starter patterns of: butterfly, lady bug, bigger butterfly and finally MLK JR. !! If I get stuck I will be e-mailing you! I do have a little blog/Etsy Shop of my own. I will add it in the bottom of your form. Again thank you! Be blessed!
