Gauge Free Crochet Patterns & Projects with Attitude

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    The muse always thumps me on the head after midnight. When I finally crawl into bed, I dream of Nutella sandwiches.

SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION SECTION:
Designs appear on Annie's Attic and other online sites. Published works are included in "Poncho Panache", Crafts Magazine and Woman's Day. I had way too much fun sharing fake food crafting techniques on Phoenix Channel 12 with the wonderful Kathy Cano-Murillo (Crafty Chica)and the Arizona Republic.

This is the home of the antsy artisan who likes to create quick and easy projects for intermediate or enthusiastic beginners. I have been creating and selling texture rich gauge free crochet patterns for years. Luscious texture is produced without having to use intimidating hook gymnastics. Most patterns are seamless and crocheted in rounds without slip stitches at end of each round. Patterns are written using American crochet terms. Please check back often because new designs are always being hatched.

CROCHETING IS GOOD FOR YOU SECTION:
Research clearly shows the life enhancing benefits of playing with hooks. My bio reads: astronaut, neurosurgeon and lion tamer. Yep, crocheting is good for you.

I also offer finished pieces created with the hands of an experienced and responsible artisan. Each item has excellent material genes to withstand the test of time.

FINE PRINT/PLEASE READ LISTING BEFORE PURCHASING SECTION/HELP KEEP MY TYLENOL CONSUMPTION DOWN:
Projects are emailed in PDF format. If you are unable to open file or file reads as "damaged", no worries! Just download a free Adobe Reader by linking onto:

Listings state whether item is pattern and not actual garment. If I only charged $4.99 for an item that took hours to create plus cost of materials, shipping and Etsy fees, my new address would be the license plate of my car.

Patterns can be instantly downloaded courtesy of Etsy. Patterns are not returnable due to nature of product.

Please use Google or visit your local library's craft section to instruct and inspire you. YouTube offers excellent visuals.

I am happy to give email support and love to treat each one of you like only children. Kindly send reasonable amount of emails. Please remember that humans need to sleep at least two hours a night or end up in a ‘special’ place making weird things out of popsicle sticks.

Instructions or any parts thereof cannot be duplicated and touted as one's original pattern. This includes translations into other languages. The word "copy" is not to be confused with the word "inspiration". For a more definitive explanation, please do a Wiki search for the word "no". Patterns may not be distributed or resold to friends, family or cats with issues.

In a heartfelt desire to share, please note that actual completed items may be sold unless otherwise indicated to fuel your entrepreneurial spirit. If item is currently displayed in your shop, I would appreciate you mentioning moi.

THE SELLER IS ALWAYS WRONG SECTION:
Please follow pattern directions exactly as written. Listings clearly indicate whether pattern is for beginner or intermediate beginner. If a crochet hook is as foreign to you as an iron or oven (excuse my projecting), pretty please do not purchase my patterns.

Crocheting is a wonderful skill to learn. I am sure your grandma or grandpa would love to teach you this great art after they are finished hitting the clubs.

I design hats for the average size head which is neither 3 inches around nor 400 inches around - unless of course, you are the victim of a 14th century curse.

Please check your Spam folder for wayward files and contact me if patterns do not reach your addy within 24 hours.

Please don't assume the pattern is wrong if you are having challenges. Just convo me if you have a problem before leaving feedback and I will do anything (except remove that gross stuff stuck in your shower drain) to help.

Have fun looking!

Love,
Ele aka thnkdfrent
