Quirky free knitting and crochet pattern links, with some misc thrown in

While checking my email I ran across a few things to share.
+++THE BEER SWEATER
by Melissa Martensen
for when you love your beer enough to want to keep it toasty warm
+++I fell in love with this knitted horse pattern by Lion Brand, correction!!
The credit for the pattern should go to Claire Garland, author of the charming and magical book, "Dream Toys," where the original pattern was published. Thanks to Kristina for pointing this out, and my apologies!



+++BUGKNITS Miniature Knitting by Althea Crome, amazing teensie knitted items.
+++Crochet Poo pattern by naidascrochet, yes, it says it is a "potty aid", we just used M&M's for the kids and all of the dogs, works great. Although I might like to use this at my workplace.
Your gonna catch flies by Tawnya Hopkins, is adorable, and the kids can count the flies, as the frog "eats" them. Just don't let the kids eat them.
I always like to have air fresheners around I liked this idea on Nancy's Arts, Crafts and Favorites, Homemade green air fresheners.
I think this is classy and looks fun to do:http://www.instructables.com/id/Hardware-Store-Bracelet/
This simple bracelet looks very upscale, but is inexpensive, classic, and easy.
Enjoy creating!!

  3. Hi! Please note, the photo of the horse you posted is NOT a Lion Brand pattern, it was simply knitted in their yarn. The credit for the pattern should go to Claire Garland, author of the charming and magical book, "Dream Toys," where the original pattern was published.

    All Lion Brand did was feature Claire's pattern. The creativity and artistry is solely hers.

    Thanks!
