The excitement of that first skein of yarn and crochet hook. The thrill of a new stitch, a new pattern, and your first few crochet items made. This is about the time you realize you’re addicted to crochet. The website, Mom’s Crochet, is all about helping you in your beginning adventures and will carry you through intermediate skills and techniques.
Oh yes, there is more, much more. As you advance in your craft you may, or may not, realize you’ve gained the heart of an artist, a Fiber Artist. Design and beauty become your goals. Throughout Mom’s Crochet you’ll find the avenues to carry you there as well.
Enjoy some History! This video shares one of the ways to READ a written Circular Design pattern. Designers, this would be awesome to share with your graph patterns.

Looking for more History? There are 2 parts to a Circle Join (Creating Designs in the Round). In this video you will learn both Part 1 (while you crochet), and Part 2 (simple finishing).

My name is Sandy Marie. As of June 2016 I hit the “50 years of crocheting” mark. I love trying new ideas and stretching what many may call the limits of this fiber art form. I try to do that with every lesson and pattern, here on Moms Crochet.
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.
What fun it is to decorate summer items
with something bright and beautiful.

I structure the free lessons just a little differently. I don’t just show you how, but I often tell you why, and sometimes share a bit of history. I figure, if the lesson is enjoyable it’s easier to remember. And speaking of ‘remembering’ something new, we all know that if you do something you remember it better. Many of the lessons have free patterns associated with them. By doing this you have a ‘practice pattern’.
As a matter of fact, the entire focus of this website is to teach all levels of crochet lessons, share tips and tricks that I've learned from 50+ years of playing with this craft, and share patterns associated with those lessons. Take a moment to bookmark this site now, so you can always come back.
Enjoy A Tapestry Crochet Series
From start to finish this lesson series

In my Designer Crochet Pattern Shop
you'll find many beautiful patterns.
These patterns are for sale.
This is an open group of crocheters who LOVE to share pictures of their work. We chat, ask questions, and help each other. We discourage ‘advertising’, but I do share things happening with Moms Crochet.
If you’re looking for designer patterns (for sale), this is the place to find them. Decades ago (before the Internet) I had the pleasure of being published in many trade magazines. Those magazines don’t exist anymore so now I’m selling my work on my own.
Just like everyone else, if I love something I share it. So this isn’t ‘just about what's on this website’. If you’re looking for ideas, have a look around.
I have to admit, I love Ravelry (free to join). Whenever I’m looking for a pattern, or simply inspiration, Ravelry is my first stop. You’ll also find over 40 of my designs listed.
I got a great start on YouTube. Then my Mother became very ill (she passed February, 2017). So far I haven’t gotten back to video making. Don’t let that stop you, there are 9 videos up there now, and I will be making more.
