Last night while surfing the web looking for neat crochet pictures and patterns, I ran across this site that I just have to share with you! I've always loved the diversity of crochet. From the big chunky afghan stitches, to the delicate picot stitches in doilies. Crochet is simply beautiful.
The site is called mypicot.com, and it is amazing! Not only are there some beautiful pictures of different stitches on the website, but all of the patterns are available for download....FREE! The patterns are done in "diagrams", however, if you click on the "tutorial" link it gives you detailed directions on how to follow a diagram. The site also has forums with tons of information and helpful tips. Check out the photos below. This is just a small, sampling of what is to be found on this wonderful site.
Wouldn't this make a lovely brooch?
Some of the techniques covered on mypicot.com are simple & textured, multi-colour, openwork & lace patterns, collar & edgings, quilt motifs, flowers & volumetric and filet crochet. Again, here is just a very small sampling of what the site offers:
Simple, Multi-colour, & Openwork Patterns
Searching thru the archives I found even more stunning pictures and patterns to download. Including hairpin lace, which I've never tried but has always fascinated me.
I told you this was a great site! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
I Love Crochet!
