Some of you may be crocheters yourself and be interested in patterns instead of finished items. If you are, there are many to choose from within the etsyhooker shops at etsy.
A few I would like to try out sometime include the following:
I have a few friends in the armed services, so I like the idea of making one of these for a special girl or boy (or even wife) who misses a loved one who is overseas. SherriCrochets came up with these cute dolls. You can also buy them already made.
Our family loves visiting aquariums of all kinds. We have been to the Georgia Aquarium and the aquarium in Baltimore to name a couple highlights. I can see myself crocheting this anemone, along with the cute fish that goes with it. Of course, with my dear husband the fish expert, I would have to look up and match the colors of the fish and anemones as found in their native habitat. With a pattern like this, you could make them in all kinds of fun colors. Check out theselovinghands for some more patterns as well as finished objects.
If you wish to try out some stuffed creatures, here is a great deal! What a bunch of cuties! You could whip up these for adding to the Easter baskets! SherriCrochets came up with some cute patterns and gives several examples in her photos of finished creations.
This hat is an adorable item that I am sure many children would love. Since you get to make it, you can choose the yarn to make it in your child’s favorite colors. Knot by Gran’ma also makes these hats if you would prefer to purchase one already completed.
