Would you Please send me the pattern to Crochet Folded Potholders. Thank you every much. I have been looking for this pattern for a long time.
I really like your Spiderman face mask. Do you have a pattern for it, if so, I would like it to make for a grandson.
Yes the link to the free pattern is here: http://mrsmelodyadams.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-making-of-spiderman-crochet-hat.html
how can I receive the pattern for a plain pineapple crochet cross?

I was just here for your LOVELY favorite dishcloth pattern and while scrolling I saw my name fly by. Thank you SO much for sharing <3
Love your site. I see you are working on the Tropical Delight afghan. Upon searching for this beautiful pattern, I find that it is no longer available in print from Herrschner’s. Would you consider sharing the pattern? I would happily pay for it. Thanks in advance…
I called Herrschner’s today to ask them if I could make a copy of this for you, and they told me that since it was out of print, I could do so as long as it is not for profit. I’m going to take a look around for the copy that I have (I’m still unpacking from moving!) and I’ll add a blog post within a day or two with a pdf that you can download. I’ll send you an email as well in case you don’t see this!
Mellie, love your site! Just finished a “sc/dc” dish cloth. Will be making many of these. A friend who has a veggie stand called “Ripe” has asked me to whip up some dish cloths for her to sell there. Should be fun and a little pocket change for me. Oh…what would you think would be a good price for them? I don’t have a clue what to charge so she and I will both profit from them. Thanks again! :)
Hi Ruth Ann!
Crochet dishcloths seem to be average about $5 on etsy, so anywhere around there I think would be reasonable. You might want to put together a set of 3 and tie them up with a pretty ribbon and do 3 for $12 or something like that. And if you use a cotton yarn like Lily’s Sugar and Cream, one skein makes about two dishcloths, and the yarn is usually $2 or less. So I think that is a pretty fair profit for the time of making them! ~mellie
Hi, where can I find the pattern for the kittens I see above?
Just started the dishcloth pattern w/sugar n cream. ☺
Hi Diane! The pattern can be found here: http://puchitomato.livejournal.com/22042.html#cutid1
Where can I find the pattern for the rainbow afghan that you have posted on your site. I have so much yarn to make this afghan and I thought it would be a nice donation to St. Judes.
Hi Carol! The direct link is here: http://www.craftingranny.com/?page_id=139 (caution: it plays music!)
I also would love to have the pattern for Tropical Delight. Even the colors are perfect for what the room I want to make it for. Could you email me the pattern or email me to let me know where I can find it. Willing to pay for it. Thank you. Sherri
Hi Sherri! Yes, I’ve been slacking and haven’t gotten the Tropical Delight pattern on this page yet! But the link to the pattern is here (it’s at the bottom): https://www.mellieblossom.com/free-tropical-delight-crochet-pattern/
very nice site thank you for the afghan squares
Do u have an easy pattern for a baby washcloth? I bought #3 cotton yarn (cascade) but can’t find a pattern that I can use with it. My daughter wants something lighter and softer than peaches and cream yarn.
I use dishcloth patterns and washcloth patterns interchangeably for the most part. You could probably use any dishcloth pattern, and using the lighter weight cotton, you could either use a bit of a larger hook (which would make the washcloth a little more hole-y) or add more repeats to a row to make it the length you like.
A very pretty dishcloth that I made, which I use a washcloth is this Flowers Dishcloth. My version is here. I went down to an F hook and then repeated the pattern more than called for. I started with a chain of 33 instead of 26 to make it a big bigger.
Thank u for getting back to me. I will try both patterns. ???
BION I’m imrsesped! Cool post!
thank you! :)
I am trying to find your pattern for the trianglular book stand or i-pad. Could you please let me know how to find it.
Hi Beverly, I didn’t realize the pattern link was no longer working. I’ll search around and see if I can find it elsewhere online!
What a fun way to spend a day! I really like the swirl texture on the top note panel. Yes this is *MORE* than your usual. Still fabulous. hugs…
thank you! :)
Saya teringin sangat melihat Anwar yang tidak pengecut itu menyaman Wikileaks. dengan cara ini orang boleh tabik hormat dan respect. Takkan hanya berani 'menyalak' dekat kampung sendiri saja. Berdiam diri bermakna Anwar mengesahkan dakwaan Wikileaks atau dalam kata lain, Anwar memang sah PELIWAT.
proposez quoi exactement? Une societe prive a un management douteux, des pratiques de securite laxiste. Vous voulez que l’etat edicte une loi pour dire non a ce management de pacotille, et qu’il faut changer de mot de passe regulierement ?
Hi i have found your site i would like to subscribe if possible please
Where can I find the spiderman hat pattern
There are a variety of patterns you can find on Ravelry: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#sort=best&query=spiderman%20hat (you’ll need to register for free). Unfortunately, it looks like the particular pattern I used is no longer available, but because I modified mine so much, any of these hats can help you with your goal.
