Featured Member Crochet: November 1

At Starting Chain we like to highlight the work done by our readers. It shows the amazing variations that crochet makes possible, from serious traditional work to cutting edge whimsey.

If you’d like to share a photo of your work, just come to the Starting Chain Facebook page and upload a photo. Give as much description as you can, including the pattern name and source if you used one. Our readers also like hearing about construction details, yarn type and hook size. We like hearing stories of inspiration, especially pieces made for family or friends or for charity…or horses. 🙂

We just had to smile on this one by Lizabeth Lopez. She writes that the horse blanket was made with “lots of leftovers!” She also adds that it is a miniature horse.

It is adorable. Thanks, Lizabeth for sharing it with us.

We’d like to thank Paula Bedard not just for sharing this lovely sweater she made but also for giving information about the pattern and how she made it. She writes,

“Ijust made this sweater for my granddaughter. I got the free pattern at the site below and worked the sweater in Bernat Baby yarn; Petunia. Thepic is yellowed so not a good representation of the yarn. It’s soooo pretty in person. I added 5 green apple buttons and make a pr of booties to match. https://www.yarnspirations.com/pattern/crochet/sweet-baby-hoodie

Vicki Smith made this doll for her granddaughter. It is 3 feet tall! Notice that she is holding both a bear and a blankey and that her dress has wonderful edging. This is a creation that will be treasured for generations. Thanks for your post, Vicki.
