I think how this crocheter repurposed yarn is brilliant. She mentions a big of a snag with calculations...I wonder if she swatched before she started. :) Looks like an interesting blog about life in Japan as well.

Kriskrafter: Free Crochet Pattern - Bandito Cowl

Kriskrafter: Free Crochet Pattern - Bandito Cowl | Crochet and Knitting and Yarn | Scoop.it
Charles Voth's insight:

This is a lovely pattern. I would have liked to see which yarn specifically was usreed for this sample. Simply stating the yarn's weight isn't really enough for me. I wouldn't even care if the yarn wasn't in production any longer. At least the designer mentioned the fibre content of the yarn she recommends.

Surgeon's fingers find outlet in crocheting

LE MARS -- Dr. Mark Stelzer's grandmother taught him to crochet. The Le Mars man was in high school at the time. "I wasn't very good at it," Stelzer said with a grin. He has perfected his art for most of the last 40 years, Stelzer said. During that time, he has made afghans for family members including baby blankets for his grandchildren...

African Flower Pattern - Petals to Picots | Crochet and Knitting and Yarn | Scoop.it
I've gotten so many compliments, questions, and pattern requests lately about the motif up there in the center of my blog header that I thought I better get a post up about it.
Charles Voth's insight:

I really find this colour combination striking. Couldn't help but share it.  For a free pattern, it's well-written, and the only unexplained abbreviations are the yarn colours, which can be easily inferred.
