Welcome to Moms Crochet

The entire focus of Moms Crochet is on Free Crochet Lessons.

When I started this website, back in 2011, I simply wanted to share crochet knowledge. I wanted to offer lessons, in this fiber art form, that were free. As of June 2016 I've been crocheting for 50 years. I often find that hard to believe.

Moms Crochet has grown a lot. I find myself still adding more lessons, and adding more free patterns. I've come to the conclusion that a website is never truly 'done', and that makes me very happy.

To find all the information on this website, simply use the links at the top.

Some of the Newest Additions:

  1. I've recently added Tuesday TidBits to our email newsletter. This simply shares some tiny ideas and lessons to make your crochet life easier. If you'd like to see some of the things I share in the newsletter you could have a look at the Archive: http://archive.aweber.com/awlist4044671
  2. The new shop, "Designs by Sandy Marie" shares (for sale) the designer patterns I create. 100% of the revenue from the shop goes to pay all the expenses of running this website.

The patterns below from my Shop, "Designs by Sandy Marie", are not free.
These are the designer patterns I also create.
The sale of these patterns help keep all the information on this website FREE.

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.

Free Pattern:

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.

Free Decal Pattern:

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 share patterns from all over the Internet (not just mine) to help inspire crocheters, and to help support Designers.

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


Yep, I'm on Pinterest too.
