I was browsing through Etsy to see what’s new there and ran across a few things I wanted to share with my readers. These are patterns that cost money, but they certainly look worth a few bucks to me. This very cute owl pattern can be found here.
I love the dimensionality of this pretty afghan. See the pattern here.
These little paisley motifs look to me like a cross between a prehistoric trilobite and a flower. Do you see it?? You can choose your own colors and find the pattern here.
These clever bookmarks look like just the perfect gift for the music teacher or any music lover. Without the little ‘flag’ on the top, they could be golf clubs, hockey sticks, spoons, or even lacrosse sticks. You might have to squint a bit to see what I see in them, but with the right yarn choice, this could be a very flexible pattern. See it right here.
Got a bike you need to spiff up? How about a bike skirt? Use one of those newer reflective yarns to increase your visibility. You can get the pattern here.
Add (change) a red nose here to thrill a tot so s/he can be just like Rudolph making his rounds with Santa. How cute is that? Get the pattern here.
Of course, there are hundreds (thousands?) more patterns for you on Etsy, created by crochet designers whose work and creativity is worth a few bucks. I make no promises about the quality (or uniqueness) of any of these patterns as I have not seen these particular patterns nor do I have any association with any of the designers. But, I do believe if we want to continue to benefit from the creativity in the world of crochet design, we need to support those who create the designs for us.
