Featured Member Crochet: September 16

At Starting Chain we like to select a few crochet projects that have been shared with us by our readers and feature those for everyone’s enjoyment. Crochet allows for such creativity and there are so many possiblities ranging from delicate Irish Crochet to bedspreads, curtains, afghans, clothing, bags, all kinds of accessories, and even crochet-bombing.

If you’d like to share your work just upload a photo to our Starting Chain Facebook page. If you used a pattern, our readers always want to know the pattern name and source. Any details of construction and advice on yarn choices are always appreciated, too. We don’t promote the selling of finished projects on the page, but always love seeing beautiful things made for friends and family, for charity, and just for that inner drive to create and experiment. Here are tonight’s featured crochet projects, all by our readers…

1236976_10201473099401959_262787742_nJeannie Mercier just simply said “My Spring Fling Pillow!” when she uploaded this very beautiful crocheted pillow to Starting Chain. We just love it! It’s clearly well constructed and looks inviting. We found the pattern on Red Heart and a number of online videos on how to make it. It looks like a nice project that can remind us that spring will fling our way again!

Debi O’Brian writes that she just finished this lovely green and violet crocheted bedspread for her granddaughter’s third birthday. We know it will be loved and treasured for decades! We’d like to thank Debi, too, for providing a link to the pattern source. The afghan block is called “Kiss-Fist” by Shelby Shea through Ravelry.

Darlene Martin made this baby blanket for a friend. She writes that it is a combination of two patterns, plus her own “ad lib and the double color edging for a little extra pop“. It’s darling!

We hope these inspire! Yarn Over!
