crochet signet ring free pattern

Ok.  Most of the world does not celebrate Bastille Day – the French version of the USA Independence Day on July 4 is their July 14 Bastille Day.  How do I know this?  Once upon a time, I majored in French for 3 of my 4 years of undergraduate college.  The things you didn’t know about me…..

While I was wandering through the internet looking for French crochet, I ran across this wonderful article about crochet and Paris.  How apt!  On the same blog, I found this cool Signet Ring Pattern.  I can see this over sized ring finding its way to the hand of many a fair young princess, can’t you?

The story about crochet in Paris, complete with a picture of a unique crochet gift can be seen here.  Très charmant!  (Hope I got that right!)  The last time I was in Paris (sounds like a song title, right?) in 2001, I purchased a lovely and very dressy crocheted scarf – worked in black thread with gold metallic accents.  It cost a small fortune and I ended up gifting it to someone as I never wore it.  On the flight home from Paris, I crocheted a wonderful freeform heart piece that I ended up giving to someone as a housewarming gift.  So, I have no Paris crochet of my own -  and no pictures.

So, in honor of our French amies (and amis), I suggest you visit Shelby Allaho’s blog where you can see some French crochet, read about what sounds like a great crochet book (Le Crochet), and maybe work up your own Signet Ring too.

    naturally like your website however you need to check the spelling on several of your
    posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth
    on the other hand I will certainly come back again.

    Kindly direct me to the ‘spelling issues’ and I’ll see to them.

    As if spelling is our biggest worries in our lives!!! I usually blame it on the computer or the spell checker or both! I would not know of any country’s holiday as I don’t generally rem’ber our own unless it hits me in the face. But, since I will never get a chance to visit other places, I like to see about them! I’m headed there now. P.S. That was nice of you on those 2 gifts! Hugs!
