Welcome to Sweet Nothings Crochet Blog where you can find Free Crochet Patterns plus my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.

This lovely pattern was shared by my friend
Marga, who pinned this inspiration on Facebook saying “No, I hate it”… knowing full well that if she said
she loved it, I’d make it for her. J
Well, she was right. Not only is this a really lovely pattern, but
I had suitable yarn – so what else does one need ??
Inspiration .. check ;
Yarn .. check ;
Time.. check (i.e have a lot of time on hands)
.. so let’s get this done. J
Now this beautiful pattern is already
all written out. As this is a paid pattern, I’m sorry I cannot share any details.
The reason I am writing
this blog is that I’ve found we are unable (sometimes) to visualize what a
particular project will look like with locally available yarns.
In India, we do not get all the yarns that are suggested on the pattern
sheet(s), but this one made with our locally available 3-ply Oswal acrylic yarn
shows us that hey! We can make this one too .. J
And this is the original photograph put up by
the designer, just so you know which one we’re doing here
Materials used : Today I’ve used our Indian 3-ply
Oswal Acrylic Yarn ~90 gms , with a 3.5 mm crochet hook.
Size made :
Length (along centre spine) : 34” x 60” (from end to end)
decided to add the border bit in a darker shade to off-set and show that bit
off better. So many ways to wear this beauty.. as my dear niece models it for me..
this ?? then do come back here for more patterns.. and/or some
wonderful crochet inspiration. J
