Are you looking for free crochet lessons? I believe that ALL crochet lessons should be free. So relax and enjoy learning something new. Use the links at the top of the website to find something you might be interested in. Many more are being added on a regular basis.
Are you looking for crochet patterns? All of the patterns are unique, and designed by me. The Santa Fe Sun Hat, that I'm wearing in the picture to the left, is a good example. You can visit the Free Patterns Index Page by clicking here, and see some of the other patterns I've created. My patterns are created with as much love as the item itself was. I enjoy using pictures to show people how to do something, as well as just the written pattern.
In addition you'll find free stitch patterns, free decals, and free squares all designed to get your creative mind going. Did you know that fewer than 20% of all crocheters actually follow a pattern exactly? That's the artist in all of us. We have to add our own 'signature' (of a sort) to everything we make. That's only one reason why crochet is so much fun.
The whole idea behind Moms Crochet is to share the craft of crochet, and have fun doing so. I've been crocheting since 1966 (yes, that's 50 years ago, lol) and I've learned a thing or two along the way. Now it's time for me to share, just like so many people shared their knowledge with me.
I love adding new things to Moms Crochet, and going back over 'old' lessons to make them better. If you want a quick look at the newest things (or updated pages), this is the place to find them. I will always put the newest item on the top.
38 years ago Mr. Mark Dittrick wrote a wonderful book about a technique he called "Hard Crochet". Today hooks and materials have changed a lot. I've taken it upon myself to bring this awesome technique into today's world using today's materials and tools.
This pattern is written specifically to go with Hard Crochet Lesson 1. Make something fun with your new skill.
Use this bag for makeup, perfect size for a little girl's purse, and great for organizing all kinds of small things. The top folds down to expose the contents, making everything easy to see. When you're done just fold the top back up, pull the drawstrings and go.

Hard Crochet Coasters
This pattern is written specifically to go with Hard Crochet Lesson 1. It's a simple little pattern to help you practice a new skill.
The yarn used is Red Heart Super Saver. It produces a firm coaster that doesn't flop around. And with such small stitches there are no large lumps that could tip your cup.
Living in New Mexico I have the pleasure to enjoy a lot of Native American symbols and ways of life. I find it a blessing to learn so much. This Sun Symbol is inspired by the rich beliefs I see every day.
Free Decal Pattern:
This flower has been a part of this website from the beginning. I found the 'real' flower in the yarn of a friend in Florida, while I was visiting. I was so struck by how pretty the little thing was that I sat down in the yard and crocheted a flower that looked as close as I could get. The crochet version became the Logo for the website.
