Crochet


I have spent this week writing about new styles and new patterns for Fall Fashion 2011. Find out what’s new, get free patterns for big yarn, and oh, so stylish easy floofy or straight knitted skirt patterns for little or big girls and women. Lace is big, but so are slouchy chic sweaters knit with bulky weight yarn. New scarf patterns, as well as shawls and shrugs and jackets to knit or crochet up to size 3X.

Enjoy these free pattern links, all with pictures:
