Welcome to Moms Crochet

Moms Crochet is your home
no matter if you’re just beginning, or already creating heirloom items.

The entire focus of this website is to teach all levels of free crochet lessons, and share patterns associated with those lessons. Take a moment to bookmark this site now, so you can always come back.

My name is Sandy Marie. As of June 2016 I’ve been crocheting for 50 years. I love trying new ideas and stretching what many may call the limits of this fiber art form.

Why is that important to you? Because along with standard lessons, that everyone is sharing, you’ll also learn tips and tricks, and you’ll be challenged to try something different. It’s my goal to help you get the creative side of your brain going and teach you how to step beyond basic crochet and following other people’s patterns. You’ll be able to decide if you want to relax and just crochet something pretty, or dive in and create something unique.

Some of the Newest Things on Moms Crochet

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.

Hard Crochet, Lesson 1:
Introduction, Materials, and Tools

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.

Hard Crochet Little Bag

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.

Native American Inspired Sun Symbol

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.

Mom's Crochet Logo Flower

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.

I love showing people how I do things. Sometimes it's easier to see something instead of just reading.
