Free Patterns

Since I haven't been able to crochet, and therefore finish or write the pattern for the other item, this weekend I'm going to type up the pattern for my mom's Christmas gift (Mom, if you're reading this please leave the area!) instead of waiting until after the holidays.

I originally wanted 3/4 length sleeves, with the same little flair that the hip has, but I've gone through all 1200yds I'd painted. I'll try to match it next week, and if I'm successful I'll add the sleeves to the pattern. I also plan to make a thinner belt maybe in solid chocolate so she'll have two options.

The photo is below-I hope you like it!
